Game Mode Rules & Tips

  • Learn more about the different game modes that Iron Banner has.
  • In Season 20, Control, Eruption and Fortress are featured.
  • Game Objective: In Iron Banner: Control, the core gameplay is to capture zones and eliminate combatants.
  • General Game Mechanics:
    • Capture zones like you would in regular Control. Gain 2 points for each zone your team controls at each time interval.
    • When your team controls 2 zones, your team will have zone advantage which will grant you 2 points per kill.
    • When your team controls 3 zones, the hunt begins, which means zones are locked down for a short duration and all kills are 3 points each during this time.
  • Game Objective: In Iron Banner: Eruption, players are tasked with earning kill streaks, with each new elimination providing significant power-ups as a match goes on.
  • General Game Mechanics:
    • One kill earns you one point, but two kills in a row will apply the “Surging” buff to your Guardian.
    • With this effect active, players will begin to glow and each new kill in their streak will generate 10% Super energy and 20% grenade, melee, and class energy.
    • They’ll also earn three points per elimination, and on the fifth kill, will become “Primed.”
    • Once Primed, everyone on your team will gain 5% Super and 10% grenade, melee, and class energy, while you’ll gain 12% Super and 5% grenade, melee, and class energy per kill, and three points per kill.
    • The catch here is that you’ll have a 15-second timer applied which will cause you to “erupt” once it reaches zero, resetting your streak and ending the perks for your teammates…and also killing you.
  • Notes: 
    • When primed, you’ll be visible to the opposing team on the map and they’ll gain three points each time they eliminate you.
    • Your own team can also see you wherever you are on the map, and more than one player can be Primed at a time.
  • Game Objective: In Iron Banner: Fortress, the core gameplay is to score more points than your opponent by capturing and defending zones; the hunt will activate twice per match.
  • General Game Mechanics:
    • Capture zones like you would in regular Control. Gain 2 points for each zone your team controls at each time interval.
    • When your team controls 2 zones, your team will have zone advantage which will grant you 4 points at each time interval.
    • When your team controls all 3 zones, your team will have a power play. Your team will gain 6 points at each time interval.
    • When the hunt is active, Empress Caiatl will send a high-value zone via Drop pod.
      • This zone is quick to capture and awards a large number of points over a shorter period of time.

What's New

Solidarity with the People of Ukraine

Solidarity with the People of Ukraine

Cоняшник (Sunflower)

A new emblem has been created for players to show their support for the people of Ukraine and all of those impacted during this ongoing crisis, and beyond. This emblem is free for all players using the universal code below.


Like Bungie, we stand with the people of Ukraine and everyone impacted by the ongoing war. The Bungie Foundation committed to donating 100 percent of the proceeds from the first 48 hours of their Game2Give charity initiative directly to humanitarian aid organizations in an effort to help the people impacted by this war, raising $120,000. There’s more that can be done!
If you are looking to support the current conflict, there are some organizations vetted by Bungie that you can donate to.
As of March 9, Bungie will be working with their partners to suspend all Destiny 2 sales and commerce in Russia and Belarus. Players in these regions will still be able to play any Destiny 2 content they have already purchased and download the free game but will no longer be able to purchase new content or Silver.
