The Old Reliables Iron Banner Quest

Iron Banner Season 11 Rewards

'Destiny 2' Season 11 Iron Banner rewards include the Fool's Remedy and Forward Path. There are eight guns in the loot pool. 'Destiny 2' is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia. Bungie

In addition to two new rewards, there will be two reprised weapons and a loot pool of eight possible guns.

  • The Forward Path
  • The Fool's Remedy
  • Shining Sphere
  • Swarm of the Raven
  • Talons of the Eagle
  • Bite of the Fox
  • Orewing's Maul
  • Crimil's Dagger

The Forward Path and Fool's Remedy are your premier rewards, and what makes them special are the perks specific to these Iron Banner weapons.

  • Iron Grip - Improves weapon stability at the cost of reload speed.
  • Iron Gaze - Improves weapon target acquisition at the cost of range.

In our opinion only the Iron Grip perk truly plays to the strengths of each gun, but we'll go into more detail on that subject below. As for this season's Iron Banner armor, Guardians can earn a reprise of the Iron Fellowship set that made its debut in January of last year. It does feature a new Shader and Emblem, though.

What to know about the Forward Path and Fool's Remedy

The most exciting items in the Iron Banner loot pool are, of course, the Forward Path and Fool's Remedy. As you work toward the very best version of these powerful guns, here's what you should be looking for in a possible God roll. Base stats arrive courtesy of Light.gg.

Forward Path

  • Impact: 21
  • Range: 50
  • Stability: 48
  • Handling: 72
  • Reload Speed: 64
  • Aim Assistance: 71
  • Inventory Size: 60
  • Zoom: 16
  • Recoil: 60
  • Bounce Intensity: 40

When it comes to working toward a God Roll for the Forward Path Auto-Rifle, we'd advise looking for perks that accentuate this gun's already-stellar Handling and Stability attributes. Those digits alone make it a potential tour de force in PvP if paired with the right enhancements. Steady Rounds and Dynamic Sway Reduction are a really good start, but you also couldn't go wrong with Feeding Frenzy or Fourth Times a Charm if PvE is more your style. With this in mind, the new Iron Grip perk sounds like a decent compliment. We think this gun could really find a strong place in the current meta.

Fool's Remedy

  • Impact: 35
  • Range: 34
  • Stability: 64
  • Handling: 63
  • Reload Speed: 44
  • Aim Assistance: 58
  • Inventory Size: 69
  • Zoom: 12
  • Recoil: 94
  • Bounce Intensity: Six

This sidearm is certainly the least desirable of the two Iron Banner highlights for Season 11, but it's not bad with the right roll. In order to make it a little better, we'd advise looking for any perks that augment range as the best setup for a God Roll. As for the new perks, once again, Iron Grip seems to make the most sense. Sidearms aren't super effective in PvE or PvP at the moment, but the Fool's Remedy can still be a worthy addition to your inventory nonetheless. That's all we know about Season 11 of Iron Banner in Destiny 2.

Destiny 2 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Stadia.
