Destiny 2 Season Of The Seraph’s Iron Banner Introduces New Fortress Mode

The first Iron Banner of Destiny 2 Season of the Seraph Comes with a brand new PvPvE mode called Fortress. Throughout Destiny, Bungie has added various Crucible modes to the Iron Banner, but not with a PvE aspect.

Iron Banner Fortress Mod

Bungie has moved away from Destiny 2’s traditional Iron Banner controls in the past to include modes like Rift and Eruption, but Fortress is a bit different as it includes short, intermittent PvE moments. It plays like Zone Control, where you need to neutralize enemy territories, capture them and protect the zone. You get points for each zone capture, and extra points are added to your team’s score when the timer refreshes every few seconds–the timer is visible above the zone. Unlike regular control, defeating opponents doesn’t add points, so it’s important to capture the most zones and defeat opponents to protect them.

However, the Fortress features a collaboration with Empress Caiatl – a cable twist to Iron Banner, possibly because Saladin is a member of Valus Forge, Caiatl’s war council. When a team reaches 40 points, A high-value zone will spawn at a marked location with Cabal turrets landing in a drop pod. Defeating the venerable Scorpius and the other constellations unlocks this zone. Both teams have to fight to capture and protect a single zone as the timer counts down to score maximum points. The high value zone lasts for about 45 seconds, then the battle is repeated when a team reaches 80 points.

Also, if you’re looking for new Iron Banner quests or bounties, there aren’t any this season. Instead, you can find Pinnacle reward challenges by hovering over the Iron Banner playlist. Iron Companion armor sets and the latest weapons from Destiny: The Taken King return in Season of the Seraph. Completing Iron Banner matches and capturing Saladin’s rank-up engrams can drop this armor set and weapon pieces.
