Destiny 2 – Best Iron Banner Loot And Godrolls To Chase in Season Of The Hunt

Iron Banner is back this week and Lord Saladin is here dishing out the loot in exchange for Iron Banner tokens. We’ve got some pretty good weapons here for both PVP and PVE, plus Iron Banner is a great way to level up your character if you’re still looking to do that. Today I am going to go through some of the Best Iron Banner Loot And Godrolls To Chase in Season Of The Hunt.

Before you can get hold of the loot you’re going to have to complete a quest called Slaying Dragons. It’s fairly straight forward, albeit a little time-consuming. I have a full guide on that here, but the tl;dr on that is pick up the quest from Lord Saladin and get into Iron Banner. In Beyond Light we have regular Iron Banner or Iron Banner Freelance, which is a solo queue playlist. Check out Iron Banner in the Crucible Director to get going – and don’t forget to pick up the bounties from Lord Saladin as each one is a pinnacle drop!

With that out of the way, let’s jump into the loot and the godrolls to chase.

Orewing’s Maul (Grenade Launcher)

Orewing’s Maul is a Legendary Energy Grenade Launcher which is a Lightweight Frame and a One-shot handheld Grenade Launcher with remote detonation. Looking at the stats we have Stability 31, Handling 69, Reload Speed 74, Velocity 77, Blast Radius 55, Rounds Per Minute 90 and Magazine 1.

The curated roll comes with Moving Target for increased movement speed and target acquisition while aiming down sights, Field Prep for increased ammo reserves, faster reloading, stow and ready which crouching. It also comes with Black Powder, where the weapons explosives are more effective (slightly increased blast radius) and finally Confined Launch which increases stability, blast radius and decreases projectile speed.

For PVP Quickdraw and Autoloading Holster would be good, where as PVE you want something like Demolistionist and Graverobber.

To get this one it’s random drop from the end of Iron Banner Matches or when you turn in tokens to Lord Saladin after the main quest is done.

Shining Sphere (Rocket Launcher)

Shining Sphere is a Legendary Power Rocket Launcher which is an Adaptive Frame meaning it has a well-rounded grip, reliable and sturdy. Looking at the stats we have Stability 45, Handling 45, Reload Speed 45, Velocity 54, Blast Radius 75, Rounds Per Minute 20 with 1 in the magazine.

The Curated roll comes with Quickdraw, snapshot sights, high-velocity rounds, volatile launch. For PVP Quickdraw and snapshot sights would be good whereas PVE Field prep and Demolitionist would be a decent roll. To get this one it’s a random drop from the end of Iron Banner Matches or when you turn in tokens to Lord Saladin after the main quest is done.

Rockets certainly need some love in Destiny 2 as a whole. We saw a mod last season called Argent Ordnance attempted to make Rockets better, and although having a charged with light perk certainly helped, they could do with much more love in the future.

The Guiding Sight (Scout Rifle)

The Guiding Sight is a Legendary Kinetic Scout Rifle which is a High-Impact Frame meaning it’s slow-firing and high-damage. This weapon is more accurate when stationary and aiming down sights. Let’s have a look at the stats Impact 67, Range 68, Stability 32, Handling 34, Reload Speed 42, Rounds Per Minute 150 and Magazine 13.

The curated roll comes with Vorpal Weapon, Slideshot, Tactical Mag and Cleanshot IS. For PVE I’d lookout for something like Rapid-Hit and Vorpal Weapon, then for PVP Quickdraw and Zen Moment.

This one will drop for you throughout the Iron Banner quest, so you don’t have to wait to turn in tokens for this one, complete step 2 of the Slaying Dragons quest and this gun will be yours. Hopefully, it’ll drop for you after the quest too once you turn in token to Lord Saladin.

This is a specialist Scout Rifle for those comfortable with this type of weapon. These are slow going, so you’re going to have to be accurate with your shots or you’ll be dead very quickly in PVP. It’s worth having a practice with it though and seeing how you get on. I think if you can get good with one of these, then you’ll be a force to be reckoned with in PVP.

The Forward Path (Auto Rifle)

The Forward Path is a Legendary Kinetic Auto Rifle which is an Adaptive Frame meaning it has a well-rounded grip, reliable and sturdy. Looking at the stats we have Impact 21, Range 50, Stability 48, Handling 72, Reload Speed 64, Rounds Per Minute 600 and a Magazine 43.

The curated roll comes with Iron Gaze and Dynamic Sway Reduction plus armour piercing rounds and red dot 2 moa. Iron Gaze is an interesting one. It does reduce range drastically, but that’s made up in target acquisition. I’d love to hear what you think of Iron Gaze in the comments, is the buff worth the cost?

For PVE Swashbuckler and Feeding Frenzy would be a decent roll as you get some increased damage from melee kills with swashbuckler. For PVP Dynamic Sway Reduction is a must-have perk, plus either Tap The Trigger or Eye of the Storm would be a good roll.

To get this one it’s random drop from the end of Iron Banner Matches or when you turn in tokens to Lord Saladin after the main quest is done.

The Fool’s Remedy (Sidearm)

The Fool’s Remedy is a Legendary Energy Sidearm which is a SUROS Rapid-Fire frame. It’s Full Auto. Deeper ammo reserves. Slightly faster reload when the magazine is empty. Looking at the stats we have Impact 35, Range 34, Stability 64, Handling 63, Reload Speed 44, Rounds Per Minute 450 and Magazine 15.

The curated roll here comes with Iron Grip, Pulse Monitor, Ricochet Rounds and Control SAS. Iron Grip is another interesting one, massive increase to stability at the cost of reload speed. Test it out and let me know what you think of it in the comments.

For PVP Moving Target and Iron Grip would be good where as PVE you want something like Feeding Frenzy and Kill Clip.

To get this one it’s random drop from the end of Iron Banner Matches or when you turn in tokens to Lord Saladin after the main quest is done.

The Steady Hand (Hand Cannon)

The Steady Hand is a Legendary Kinetic Hand Cannon which is an Aggressive Frame meaning it’s got High damage, high recoil. Optimized for long-distance shooting. Looking at the stats we have Impact 92, Range 64, Stability 32, Handling 28, Reload Speed 28, Rounds Per Minute 120 and Magazine 8.

The curated roll comes with Mulligan and Slideshot as well as Flared Magwell and Trusight HCS. For PVP Snapshot Sights and Killing Wind would be a good roll and for PVE I’d go for something like Outlaw and Wellspring. Wellspring is a new perk this season that going to give you a small amout of super energy on kills, so is an all round useful perk to have – keep an eye out for it.

This one will drop for you throughout the Iron Banner quest, so you don’t have to wait to turn in tokens for this one, complete step 3 of the Slaying Dragons quest and this gun will be yours. Hopefully it’ll drop for you after the quest too once you turn in token to Lord Saladin.

This is a former 110 hand cannon that’s been brought up to 120. Bungie said in update 3.0.0.1

  • Increased Rate of Fire (RoF) from 110 to 120.
  • Broke out Aggressive Hand Cannons, allowing custom tuning of stats (e.g. damage falloff for 100 range in this subfamily now starts at 32m).

This definitely could be one of the most deadly hand cannons in the game in the right hands. Unfrotunately those hands aren’t mine, I’m much more adept with 140 hand cannons like Thorn, Hawkmoon and Ace of Spades. But still worth chasing this one and giving 120’s a chance.

That’s some of the weapons this season, with the returning weapons Steady Hand and Guiding Sight being the main event of the Iron Banner. Don’t sleep on The Fool’s Remedy or the Forward Path either. Both are very handy weapons, especially with how effective 600 autos are with Dynamic Sway Reduction and also with Surprise Attack still being a great mod this season for Sidearm Damage.

Let me know what you think down in the comments and let me know what rolls you got.
