With Bungie deciding that in Destiny 2 iron banner would have no iconic weapons and decided that Iron Banner armor would be worthless the event has lost all its prestige.The sets look like crap and have no enhanced perks ,Currently there is no reason to play iron banner as there is nothing to gain. The lag and horrible connections make the game a worse experience on top of that. I remember when Iron Banner had the best weapons and an Armor sets that looked amazing. D2 iron banners have been so bad especially since forsaken. The fact that decided to recycle the same exact guns from y1 and create a worse armor set every season has killed the event. If the banner is going to continue to be produced so lazily, they might as well cancel it and stop ruining the name of the Iron Banner. Either do it right or don't do it at all bungie, this is trash. It's sad what the community has to endure with bungie putting in less and less effort. Edit: I forgot to mention that the shaders are perhaps the worst in destiny history all looking like different versions of dirt. Edit: if they actually wanted the population to play iron banner the next iron banner should have 180 hc, 390 pulse, 600 auto, 600 sub,aggresive frame shotgun, 140 sniper, rocket with cluster bombs, new class specific swords. burst side arm. Armor sets that look good and ornaments unlocked by playing banner. This is the meta bungie give us weapons that we will actually use. giving us bad weapons will not change the meta its just an auto dismantle. I'm never using your trash weapons.
The revelry served a much better purpose as players at least got very easy max light/higher level gear
