In a new blog post, Destiny 2 developer Bungie has revealed four new weapons that will be available to earn in Season 14 in the PvP gamemode Iron Banner. These weapons include a hand cannon, a shotgun, a sniper rifle, and a machine gun. If these weapons are anything like recent Iron Banner rewards, they'll probably have a chance to roll with some unique Iron Banner-themed perks. You can view the weapons in the picture above.
Bungie also confirmed that in the future, there are plans to bring new armor sets to Iron Banner as well. Considering Iron Banner hasn't gotten a new set of armor since the launch of Destiny 2: Shadowkeep in 2019, this is fantastic news. There's no word on when exactly the new armor will come, but Bungie said players shouldn't expect it for "a few seasons." Season 14 is expected to begin on May 12, 2021, so at least players will be able to get these new guns sooner rather than later.

I played D2 for quite a while but the grind is just... ridiculous. Everything that you achieve is garbage by the next update as you have to constantly upgrade your weapons. Then here is no vanity overlays on armor, aka, if you want the best armor you have to choose whatever is the most powerful regardless of how ugly to stupid looking it is. Games like Neverwinter allow you to take the stats of any armor and overlay them with one that you actually like the appearance of. Then there was the last major mod that ripped out half of the maps out of the game. I like the game's combat just fine but they are just driving me away from the game. A game like Path Of Exile has a far better update system and monetization scheme.
