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!

    Furiosa Star Anya Taylor-Joy Praises Charlize Theron’s Performance

    Furiosa Star Anya Taylor-Joy Praises Charlize Theron’s Performance Earlier this week, Anya Taylor-Joy was confirmed to headline George Miller’s upcoming Furiosa spinoff as a younger version of the character originated by Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road. Many fans were originally hoping to see Theron herself reprise the role in a potential sequel, but it seems that Miller is more interested in winding the clock backward to explore Furiosa’s origin story. Fortunately, Taylor-Joy is also a huge fan of Theron’s, and she’s well aware that expectations are high (via SuperHeroHype). RELATED: Taylor-Joy, Hemsworth & Abdul-Mateen II to Lead Furiosa Prequel! Taylor-Joy discussed landing the role while appearing on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast (via IndieWire). Right now, she’s reuniting with The Witch director Robert Eggers on his next move, The Northman. That movie is shooting in Belfast, which also happens to be where Taylor-Joy saw Fury Road for the first time. And it sounds like her casting prompted a literal stroll down memory lane. “I walked past the cinema where I first was amazed by this incredible mind of George Miller,” said Taylor-Joy. “It’s difficult to put into words. I feel so humbled and grateful. I think the first thing I thought was ‘I am so excited to work so hard.’ The level of commitment that has been shown by those who came before me, I endeavor to match that. That makes me really excited. I have so much respect for the originators of this crazy world and this collection of characters. I am excited to work really hard.” Theron previously confessed that it was “heartbreaking” for her to walk away from Furiosa. Regardless, Taylor-Joy has already begun developing her own take on the character. She acknowledged that she won’t be able to match Theron’s intensity. However, she aims to work as hard as she can to honor her performance. “I fell in love with Furiosa because of the way Charlize presented her,” added Taylor-Joy. “She did such an incredible job. It was so beautiful. I can’t even think about trying to step into her shoes. It has to be something different because it just can’t be done.” “I’ve already started dreaming about [Furiosa] and she’s coming in very strong,” continued Taylor-Joy. “I’m so committed to working as hard as possible as I can. I always said that I wanted a role that I would have to give everything to, it wouldn’t just be my mind but my body, what I’m doing with myself when I’m not on set. I’m so excited for that and to push myself past the limits of what my brain thought was possible.” RELATED: Tony Goldwyn Replaces Liev Schreiber in Will Smith’s King Richard Furiosa will also star Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in supporting roles.
