Destiny 2 Iron Burden & Wolf’s Favor Explained. How to get the New Wizened Rebuke.
New Wizened Rebuke Fusion Rifle in Destiny 2 Iron Banner is officially in session, which means Lord Saladin has new weapons and armor to buy and bounties to try. In this guide, we’ll explain Iron Burden and Wolf’s Favor, two new consumables that will drastically change how you approach the Iron Banner. Using one of them even offers the chance at a curated roll of Wizened Rebuke.
What is Iron Burden in Destiny 2?
Its name, Iron Burden is a debuff designed for the most skilled players. It lowers your base Power level by 100 points, making strategy imperative because as you know power levels matter in the Iron Banner. It costs five Iron Banner Tokens.
As with any debuff, the loss of power arrives alongside the potential for great rewards. Complete the Atlas, Unbound Triumph, and you’ll get a curated roll of the Wizened Rebuke that’s fully Masterworked.
What is Wolf’s Favor in Destiny 2?
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Wolf’s Favor grants a 100 Power Level increase up to 700 and no more for a period of 30 minutes. It’s designed to encourage those who don’t normally play PvP or are not willing to enter into the Banner to give it a shot. The Wolf’s Favor drops from these activities:
- Daily Heroic story mission
- Vanguard strikes
- Weekly Ikora and Hawthorne milestones
In other words, there’s lots of incentive for those who normally ignore Iron Banner Tokens to reconsider their position and give it a chance.
What about that Wizened Rebuke?
The Wizened Rebuke curated roll is unlocked by completing the Atlas, Unbound Triumph. Doing so requires killing 500 Guardians with a lower Power Level while using the Iron Burden debuff. In other words, you’ve got to be very good at Crucible to attempt this challenge because as you know the power level matters and being a lower power level in Iron Banner makes if very difficult to make multiple kills. If you’re successful, here’s a preview of the gun you’ll get.
This is the curated Wizened Rebuke you’ll get for killing 500 Guardians with Iron
- Demolitionist: Kills with this weapon grant grenade energy. Activating your grenade ability reloads this weapon from reserves.
- Moving Target: Increased movement speed and target acquisition when moving while aiming down sights.
- Enhanced Battery: Increases magazine size.
- Hitmark Is: Greatly increases handling speed and slightly increases range.
- High-Impact Frame: Slow firing and high damage. This weapon is more accurate when stationary and aiming down sights.
It’s certainly not the best god roll in all of Destiny 2, but this souped-up Wizened Rebuke is still a nice reward for those with the skills to master Iron Banner.
Destiny 2 is available on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Iron Banner runs through April 2 at 1 p.m. EDT
