Destiny 2: Season 14 Iron Banner Weapons Revealed

Earlier today, we talked about the various nerfs that are being implemented in Destiny 2: Season of the Chosen ahead of season 14 on the horizon. The reason behind the wide swath of nerfs is that the studio is bringing in a ton of new weapons and gear for the upcoming season, and the team is making preemptive changes to ensure that those arrivals fit right in. While we don't know even a small portion of what's on the way, Bungie did reveal the new Season 14 Iron Banner weapons on the way to help ease the blow of the most recent nerfs. Iron Banner is slated to kick off one last time in Season of the Chosen on April 13 at 10 a.m. Pacific until April 20 at the same time. This will be the final Iron Banner before season 14, so get in there if you still need to complete the Iron Sharpens Iron Seasonal Challenge. Saladin also offers weekly bounties that are great for leveling, especially for those trying to get to 1325 for Grandmaster Nightfalls.  Regarding what's next, here's our first look at the new weapons on the way for the upcoming season:  The Hand Cannon and Sniper Rifle, seen above, will be familiar for dedicated Guardians, but there will also be brand new weapons joining as well. "Our goals moving forward are to continue bringing some Year-1 weapons up to speed with random rolls, but also bringing some new rewards into the fold when possible," said Bungie in its most recent update. "This always depends a bit on what resources we have for a given season, but we’re looking forward to a few new Iron Banner-themed tools for your arsenal." There will be new armor in Iron Banner as well, but the studio isn't ready to share that first look quite yet since it won't be ready to debut for a few more seasons.  I'm interested in seeing how the new weapons operate, given the recent meta changes. It's nice to see a blend of returning favorites and new weapons. While I like that Bungie keeps bringing back familiar items, it does get a little exhausting when returning gear takes a priority of brand-new weapons and armor. What do you think about our first look at the new weapons for Destiny 2: Season 14 Iron Banner? Sound off with your hopes and Guardian-driven dreams in the comment section below!

    Airlines are working with the World Health Organization to replace quarantine

    The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has been working with the WHO to set up a testing system that will replace compulsory quarantine to help to revive the airline industry.

    The IATA which represents about 290 airlines globally is also working with the International Civil Aviation Organization and World Health Organization to set up a fast and scalable testing system.

    “We need testing because we need to get rid of quarantines,” said Conrad Clifford, IATA’s regional vice president for the Asia Pacific. He continued saying “What we’ve seen so far is if there’s a 14-day quarantine, it’s the same as closing your borders.”

    Clifford also said that IATA would, “prefer to see some testing before departure and ideally, if we can find countries with similar levels of Covid risk, much like Singapore and Hong Kong, then that takes away the need for further testing.”

    Singapore and HK have agreed to open their borders to one another for the first time in 7 months and it also agreed to exempt people from undergoing compulsory quarantine to reinstate links with 2 of Asia’s financial hubs. Further details have not been provided.

    The risk of passengers getting infected on a plane is very low said Clifford, this is due to airlines undergoing deeper sanitization of planes and it has cut back on in-flight catering and magazine. The chance of getting infected on board is lower than being struck by the lightning. “There have been a lot of measures airlines have taken to absolutely drive that chance down to as close to zero as we can get it. So, it’s a very safe environment indeed” said Clifford.

    The IATA had forecasted that in June, the airlines will lose a combined of $84 billion this year and the number is said to increase as the virus cases are not going on a downward trend and the market has not opened yet. However, Clifford said that this year Cargo planes have been a silver lining due to an increase in online purchase which is said to continue for this and coming years. Air freight is expected to account for over 26% compared to 12% last year.
