Here's the bottom line on Iron Banner

Here is the bottom line for Iron Banner. At over 2500 hours logged into Destiny 2, it is safe to say that I am not a casual player. However, the grind for iron Banner is very tedious and time-intensive, even with a dedicated team. I want to do iron Banner because I enjoy playing Iron Banner and I don't mind working towards objectives even if it eats up most of my weekend. However, this grind for this particular iron Banner is in my opinion over the top. I want Bungie to respect my time as a player. I would love to play Iron Banner for fun instead of doing objectives where I'm forced to use different types of guns that I don't particularly like to run around with such as auto rifles and Scout rifles and other dumb weapons. I really have lost interest in Iron Banner for the first time in Destiny 1 and Destiny 2. Why would I want to go and grind for armor that is going to come with random rolls and I'll be lucky if I get two or three drops by the time I get done with this ridiculous Quest on one character and never probably finish it on the other two characters when I can spend my time in a more substantial way inside the Menagerie getting multiple sets to drop on exactly the type of armor that I want and have a better chance of getting the types of roles that I want on that armor? This, by the way, is exactly what is wrong with the Reckoning. I have no desire at all to go back into the Reckoning for any reason. Get together a fire team and hope that you clear the objective and get a chance to get a piece of armor that has a chance of getting the item that you want. I'm just done with it. I'm not a hardcore gaming YouTuber. But I am a hardcore gamer when it comes to Destiny. And even this is too much for me.

    Just finished my grenades. Took like 10-15 games. Actually didn't feel too bad. Got in a decent rhythm. Basically once I hit 750 I didn't feel like I had other things to do.

  • I don't know what it is, but I almost always do better in the IB than in Quickplay. My K/D goes way up. It feels like I'm playing against players more evenly matched to me, instead of the experts I seem to face in Quickplay.

        • Thank the universe I dislike PvP... PvE is grindy enough, no need to be smashed into the dust.

        • The abilities are the worst part to me. Mostly cause recharge time on abilities in D2 has always been atrocious. Other than that it's just another boring quest for boring ole banner. I could take it or leave it. If I don't complete it I really dont care cause it's just infusion fodder if I do then just another time waster out of my inventory.

          • Idk I've just played a couple hours each night and I'm on the 4th step already, it seems fine to me. And not to mention all the armor dropped with enhanced perks making it worth the grind.

          • Did the whole quest in 3 days, of which only 1 was a day off from work, solo queue. Really don't understand the time complaints, except maybe in the context of clearing it with 3 characters, but even then it's supposed to be a season long thing.

          • 3 main basic problems in Iron Banner: 1. Boring (always same game mode) 2. It is a pay-to-win scam (players who have paid $100 for base game + curse of Osiris + warmind cannot compete unless they pay even more for forsaken ($40+), and that’s not mentioning the weapon type disadvantage) 3. Sterile maps (no map updates in about a year; same shit, different day) On top of all of that, they can’t even be bothered to make a new armour set for it. Yet they always make paywalled content in eververse, a cash shop in a $200+ game. Extremely lazy and scummy, though unfortunately nothing new. Cue the deluded fanboys defending this garbage.

            • Yea, the steps can be annoying, but something I think people forget when it comes to Destiny: you don't have to finish everything as quick as possible. This quest can be completed on different characters throughout the season, yet people act like they have to do it on all 3 this week. And if they can't, then it's something wrong with the quest, and/or that it should be account based. No, that's not the case. Everything doesn't need to be account based nor does it have to finished asap.

              • I am on the last stage (had break for dinner and hanging out with my wife) and honestly I had fun. Probably won't grind out Titan or Hunter quests this time, but it got me to try out weapons I don't really use and do some really goofy shit with grenades. Was gonna play a lot of IB anyway.

                • I get what you are saying on a side note ya IB is time consuming and all the grind for what a random roll that doesn't fit your play style, besides IB I think honestly all of pvp is a bit meh from the pinnacle weapons require a certain comp rank for god knows why to the matchmaking for solo quing. One reason I play pve mainly is because the grind and time wasted is all worth it in the end but in pvp I see no point in having to waste half my week for stuff that probably won't be good.

                • There needs to be a greater incentive to play the objective. Or just have iron Banner be clash instead of control.

                • I think this, I hate PvP so screw iron banner, if you like PvP play it, it's really that simple for me, so the quest is tedious fuk it then, not barking at you just my opinion on all these iron banner posts

                  • It's like clocking into another job when playing now. These questlines/bounties aren't balanced at all. The Truth quest was perfect. Not too long or short, manageable for people with jobs and real life responsibilities. Iron Banner armor quest is just not ideal this time around. Just my OPINION only. Please respect it if you reply, without all the negative feedback. We all have our own. Don't care if you have until season 7 ends. Still needs to be tweaked.

                    • that quest they added is a bit over the top. It's friday and I'm on the 2nd to last part...took me forever to get grenade kills with my titan...it's not like grenades are one shot kill, lol...and people usually don't just stand there in a pulse grenade or lightning grenade. Then termite is crap, stickies only hurt a bit, flash bangs aren't that great either, sure there's suppressor ones...but it won't kill them. Anyway, it's taking forever on my titan...I'm not doing it on other characters. I'll just hope with all the coins I can get the gear on my hunter and warlock

                      • It ain't great. I'm only doing it for the Hunter armor, shaders, and Sparrow. The Hunter set is one of my favorite armor sets in D2.

                        • Bungie are smart people. They made us stop complaining about the reskinned armor and got us talking about how difficult it is to get. *Slowclap*.

                        • Havent played too much due to work but managed to finish quest for my first character today. Frag part went pretty fast with skiphands and frag mod in every slot. Once again a quest that makes you adapt in given situation. Of course you might not be able to wear those very special red luckysocks you think you absolutely must wear in every situation...
