Destiny 2 Iron Banner 2023 Schedule
Bungie has yet to outline the Iron Banner schedule for Season 20, which begins on February 28 with the release of the game’s Lightfall expansion, but there is still one Iron Banner event left before the current Season 19 ends.
As with all Iron Banner events, the next event begins and concludes at the usual reset time:
- Week 1 of Season 19: Tuesday, January 3 to Tuesday, January 10
- Week 2 of Season 19: Tuesday, January 31 to Tuesday, February 7
While during season 19, there will only be two appearances of the Iron Banner due to, as Bungie said, Saladin’s “increased responsibilities at Caiatl’s war council”, starting in season 20, this will revert to the previous three times per season. schedule.
As was the case with the first event of Season 19, it will feature Stronghold mode, which is essentially Zone Control with an additional King of the Hill-type objective at various point thresholds. Fingers crossed, you’ll get some nice ally demand down the road.

Destiny 2 Iron Banner Reputation Boosts List
With the Iron Banner overhaul during Year 5, Bungie has introduced ways to increase your reputation through a series of improvements.
For the second Iron Banner week of Season 19, and heading into Season 20 and beyond, some of those reputation boosts have changed. They are the following:
|Equipment or decorations of the Iron Banner||400% for all five gear pieces (double the 200%)|
|Completing daily Iron Banner challenges||50% per challenge, 200% for all challenges (halved from 100% for, 400% for all)|
|Iron Banner Emblem||50% (versus 10%)|
The table above reflects the increases made to reputation gains as part of hotfix 188.8.131.52, released on January 31, 2023; The changes are the following:
- Increased Iron Banner rank gains.
- Doubled multipliers for using Iron Banner equipment.
- Multipliers for completing challenges have been halved.
- Significantly increased the multiplier for using an Iron Banner emblem.
It’s worth noting that there seems to be a bug in the game where these gains are displayed differently depending on whether you have an Iron Banner emblem equipped or not: when equipped, it appears to increase the reputation gains of each piece of armor, leading to a 4.50x magnification. multiplier.
However, this is likely just a visual error as, according to communications from Bungie, earnings have been doubled, halved, or, in the case of the emblem, “significantly increased”, with an overall increase in earnings. base reputation gains, but the in-game values appear lower in the boost list node.
So while it may be confusing in-game, as mentioned, the table above specifies the updated values based on the changes announced by Bungie as part of the aforementioned hotfix.
You can view active enhancements from this playlist node; Please note that this image was before patch 184.108.40.206, so the value of reputation gains and boosts has changed since then.
Simply put, to increase your reputation as much as possible, you’ll want to equip five pieces of Iron Banner gear (be it armor, armor ornaments, or weapons), as well as an Iron Banner emblem, in addition to completing each one. of the four daily challenges that take place during the event. Together, these will increase your reputation gains to the maximum they can reach.
In addition to the above, know that:
- According to Bungie, each game you’ll “earn more” for your reputation, suggesting that the more you play, the higher the default reputation earned.
- Victories will grant you a “small bonus based on your current Iron Banner rank.”
- Equipping an alternate Iron Banner ornament on an Iron Banner armor piece registers as two of the five required pieces of equipment.
Basically, equip a bunch of Iron Banner gear and an emblem, complete challenges and win matches, and you’ll be rising through the ranks in no time!
The Iron Banner featured armor set introduced in Season 19, picked up from Destiny 1.
Note that if you go for the seal and title, Bungie says it will take you “15 to 20 hours to unlock it,” and you have each Iron Banner event in a season to do so. The same goes for his golden triumphs.
Enjoy this year’s Iron Banner!
