THIS WEEK AT BUNGIE – 6/13/2019

11h - Cozmo
This week at Bungie, we watched Guardians hunt for Truth. 
 
Season of Opulence is off and running. Guardians are piling into the Emperor’s lost vaults in search of the treasure of their choosing. Earlier this week, you discovered a new boss waiting for you in the depths of the Menagerie. Upon defeating it, you were given a quest to seek out Truth. Not in an X-files way, but to find the Rocket Launcher, Truth—a weapon that seeks out its targets… aggressively. Just look at what some players are seeing in the wild:
 
 
Next week, we’ll mix things up once again with a third additional boss to keep things fresh in our new six-player activity. And that’s not all we have planned. We are also welcoming an old friend back to the Tower.
 

Iron Pursuits

Lord Saladin will return next week for the first Iron Banner of Season of Opulence. With a new Season, you have a fresh set of weapons and armor available to earn. Saladin continues to offer Iron Banner bounties, but will also set you on a quest to earn your gear. In other words, prove your worth, and be outfitted as an Iron Lord.
 
  • This Season’s Iron Banner armor is now acquired through a quest.
      • Each armor piece will be granted upon completing its associated quest step.
      • Each armor piece will be granted as a powerful reward.
      • After unlocking an armor piece, it may be reacquired with random rolls through Iron Banner Reputation Packages and match rewards.
      • If you are a veteran player who earned Iron Banner ornaments in the past, this Season’s armor is compatible with all Year 1 Iron Banner ornaments.
  • Iron Banner packages have been updated.
      • Iron Banner Armor may now roll with enhanced perks.
      • New weapons have also been added to Iron Banner packages and have a higher chance to drop on the first package you redeem.
  • New Iron Banner shaders, an emblem, and a Sparrow may be earned through objectives that must be completed during Season of Opulence.
  • Iron Banner bounties will continue to grant rewards and Iron Banner Tokens.
      • Iron Banner bounties no longer unlock direct purchase for Iron Banner gear, as it is now acquired directly through the Iron Banner quest.
 
Iron Banner and Increased Valor
Start: 10 AM PDT on June 18
End: 10 AM PDT on June 25
 
Here is a preview of the armor and weapons available during Iron Banner events in Season of Opulence.

Raid Stats

Thousands of Guardians explored deep within the Leviathan to tackle the challenges of the Crown of Sorrow raid. A fireteam of six completed it first and paved the way for others to follow in their footsteps. We made a graphic showing the number of Guardians who beat the raid in a few key timeframes during the first week.

If you were one of the 45,475 Guardians who bested Gahlran within the first week and are thinking about purchasing the Bungie Rewards raid jacket, you have until 11:59 PM PDT on June 18 to claim your Bungie Reward code and place your order. Dmg04 and I both completed it the night before the deadline and ordered ours. 
 
Congratulations to everyone who has completed it so far. If you’re still Powering up, Gahlran is waiting for you.

N.B. Didn;t paste the Q&A for Destiny 2 Fall Update as i'll create a separate post.

 

This is actually a really good update - better than i expected considering its not about any new news for future content.

 

Iron Banner actually looks appealing next week. The armour looks good, the way to get it (through quests) is a great change and they all have the chance to roll with enhanced perks which they've never done before. Even the emblems look really nice this time round. I want that Shotty too.

 

Damn, I've been reeled back in this time round and didn't expect it to feel this good. Anyone up for Bannering next week? Good time to able to get 6 players together and rock some crucible mixed up around Menagerie runs and maybe some raids?

Might be a good time to get some Sniper kills as noobs tend to try out Banner early on in the Seasons.
