A new Destiny limited time event starts today. The Iron Banner is a PvP mode in which players' gear is not standardised.
Usually, players entering the Crucible PvP grounds have their gear and stats levelled out in order to offer a fair playing field to all participants. However, in Iron Banner events, players will be granted all the powers and benefits that their gear offers them outside of the Crucible.
"Bring your deadliest weapons. Equip your sturdiest armor. The Iron Lords are seeking out the most powerful warriors who call the City their home. For those brave enough to fight (and to win), there will be new rewards to serve as a warning of their prowess in the arena," writes Bungie.
Players who participate in the Iron Banner event will be able to earn rewards including exclusive Legendary gear, including weapons and armour.
