Destiny 2 will see the return of hardcore PvP event Iron BannerDestiny 2 will see the return of hardcore PvP event Iron Banner

Anyone who has played Destiny knows there is absolutely nothing hardcore about Iron Banner. The increased damage from being higher level is so minimal it's non existent.

Only thing Iron Banner is good for is that it hands out legendary loot like candy compared to normal crucible.

But to call it hardcore is a huge exaggeration.Reply

Last time Bungie talked about the IB power curve (around TTK) they explained that a difference of 10 Light equates to 2% in damage. That's not nothing with damage so finely balanced across weapon archetypes, but yeah, if you're 390+ IB is no big deal.

Clearly you're in that position, but consider the rest of the player base. Many aren't anywhere near max Light, and to them IB looks pretty intimidating. Personally, I know I've noticed the difference in IB early in an expansion, or on an alt, before I got my Light level up.

But hey, these things are relative. IB has nothing on Trials, for sure.
