Bungie has kicked off the Iron Banner event in Destiny today, letting players go up against each other in the game's competitive arenas with full level advantages enabled.
Under normal circumstances, player-vs-player content in Destiny has stat bonuses from gear and character level disabled in an effort to create a sense of balance. However, for the next week, players can opt to take part in the Iron Banner PVP playlist, in which character stats count.
The event runs from today until October 14. Taking part will earn you Iron Banner reputation, which will unlock new legendary gear for purchase as a reward.
