The Iron Lords are bringing a machine gun and a hand cannon later today, Guardians.


Bungie has apparently revealed the two weapons you’ll be able to access for hitting Rank 5 in this week’s Iron Banner tournament in Destiny, showing a machine gun and a hand cannon (what appears to be an updated version of Timur’s Lash).

The tournament’s launch time hasn’t been confirmed yet, as you can see in the tweet above.

This Iron Banner will bring sweeping changes to the event, including a switch from Control (capture and defend points) to Clash (team deathmatch). Other updates should make participation a lot more attractive:

  • Iron Banner reputation from winning matches increased by 20%
  • Activity completion rewards increased at all ranks, with even more significant increases at Rank 2 and above
  • Packages from Lord Saladin upon reaching Rank 3 and Rank 5
  • Iron Banner Artifacts can be obtained from the Rank 3 package
  • Iron Banner Ghost Shells can be obtained from the Rank 5 package or activity completion rewards

We’ll let you know when it’s gone live.
