Destiny 2 Iron Banner Season 9 Quest

As always, Lord Saladin is back in Destiny 2s Tower for Season of Dawn. This time the Iron Banner host has a new questline to earn Iron Banner items. If you are competitive, this search is the best way to get rewards for the monthly crucible event.

Keep in mind that some of Destiny 2’s best weapons, like the Swarm of the Raven grenade launcher, come only from Iron Banner. If you want to hand in your Iron Banner tokens, you must complete the quest first. Saladin will not let you claim any of his engrams until you have successfully completed the Season 9 Iron Banner quest.


Here’s how to complete the Iron Banner: Season 9 quest in Season of Dawn thanks to a thankful infographic from Reddit user jp1800.

Step 1: light the fires

To get this quest, you need to speak to Saladin in the tower during the dawn season.

The steps in this section are very simple and must all be done in Iron Banner matches. You keep your progress from game to game.

Here are the steps for Light the Fires:

  • Conquer 10 Iron Banner Zones
  • Kill 30 enemy guards
  • Get 3 kills with your super

reward: Iron banner weapon

Step 2: iron sights

When you finish Light the Fires, you will immediately switch to Iron Sights – you no longer have to visit Saladin. Some of the goals for these quests are not linear. This means that you have probably already achieved certain goals before you reach them. However, certain weapon type kills only count if you complete this step.

Here are the steps for Iron Sights:

  • Complete 6 Iron Banner matches
  • Conquer 20 Iron Banner Zones
  • Kill 25 Guardians with Scout Rifles

reward: Iron banner armor

Step 3: pump iron

Pump Iron continues the formula:

  • Kill 100 guards
  • Conquer 30 Iron Banner Zones
  • Kill 20 guards with a shotgun

reward: Iron banner armor

Step 4: death metal

Death Metal continues the formula:

  • Defeat 15 enemies with super kills
  • Conquer 40 Iron Banner Zones
  • Kill 15 guards with hand cannons

reward: Unknown

Step 5: iron rain

Iron Rain continues the formula:

  • Complete 15 matches
  • Conquer 50 Iron Banner Zones
  • Defeat 10 guards with rocket launchers

reward: Iron banner armor

Note: If you’re having trouble getting all the rocket launcher kills you need, use Truth. The truth comes from a short quest from Season of Opulence. If you pick up a heavy brick, you can load multiple shots of the rocket at the same time. The missiles also track very aggressively, making Truth easy to use.

Step 6: cast iron

You are now done with Iron Banner. Return to Lord Saladin for your last reward. Congratulations, you can now give away all the iron banner brands you deserve for even more loot.

Why can’t I find the new deer iron banner bug?


If you’ve been looking at the dawn season calendar earlier this year, you may have noticed a new arc related to Iron Banner. It is called Point of the Stag and seems to be a kind of ritual weapon for iron banners.

In a recent Bungie blog post, the studio said the gun wasn’t ready, and apologized to hopeful fans. Instead, the bow will appear next season.
