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!

Inspired by his childhood in Arizona, the director has often cited his upbringing as a major inspiration for his films. Growing up in an Orthodox Jewish family has been the subject that the director often goes back and pays homage to through his work. However, the legendary director has not delved too deeply into his past aside from the HBO Documentary on his legacy. His father Arnold Meyer Spielberg was an American electrical engineer instrumental in contributions for data that would define modern tech. It was his camera that a young Spielberg would pick up to create his first 8 mm films. His father would go on to fund his son’s first independent film, a science fiction adventure titled Firelight.

The untitled project has been in the works for over 20 years, with Spielberg first having been urged by director and Close Encounters of the Third Kind star Francois Truffaut to make a film about his childhood with frequent collaborators Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future), which first started out as an R-rated film about 12-year-olds entitled After School before going through a number of other titles including Growing Up and I’ll Be Home, the latter of which saw its script written by his sister Anne Spielberg.

The film will also mark the first time in 20 years that the filmmaker acts as both writer and director on the project, with his previous writing credit being on the sci-fi blockbuster A.I. Artificial Intelligence in 2001, which was a passion project for Spielberg after being handed the project by Stanley Kubrick. RELATED: Check Out Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story Photos!

    The Talisman: Spielberg & Duffer Bros. Adapting Stephen King’s Novel Into a Series

    The Talisman: Spielberg & Duffer Bros. Adapting Stephen King’s Novel Into a Series Stephen King and Peter Straub’s fantasy horror novel The Talisman is being adapted into a series with Oscar winner Steven Spielberg (Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s List, Jaws) teaming up with the Emmy-nominated Duffer Brothers (Stranger Things) to finally make the project a reality, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Mark and Ross Duffer will executive produce the series adaptation that is being produced by Netflix in association with Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Paramount Television.

Now, the tale of young Jack Sawyer is heading to the small screen.

    David Koepp Explains Why Steven Spielberg Ditched Indy 5

    Indiana Jones 5: David Koepp Explains Why Steven Spielberg Ditched the Project It’s been seven long months since it was announced that Logan’s James Mangold would replace Steven Spielberg as director of Indiana Jones 5. And since that time, not much has been revealed about the project. Thankfully, former Indy 5 screenwriter and frequent Spielberg collaborator David Koepp recently sat down with Den of Geek and shed some light on the famed director’s departure, which at least provides some semblance of closure for fans. RELATED: Star Wars HasLab Razor Crest is Fully Funded, Stretch Goal Announced “I tried a couple different versions with Steven and they all had some good stuff about them and they all had some stuff that didn’t work, which happens. But it was just very hard to have everybody come together and have all the elements — Steven, Harrison (Ford), the script and Disney — come together at once. And it didn’t,” Koepp said. Obviously, Koepp couldn’t reveal any details about the story, but he did reveal that the handoff to Mangold was amicable. “When James Mangold came in and Steven stepped out, that was a pretty logical breaking point,”Koepp told Den of Geek. “It’s a gracious time to step out the door because I think the last thing a new director wants is the old director’s writer. I mean, that’s a drag. The last thing you need is some guy sitting around with his arms folded saying, ‘Well, the way Steven would have done it is…’ I had one nice friendly conversation with him and then I’m sure he wanted to be able to move on anyway. Everybody was pretty polite, I thought.” RELATED: James Cameron Says Filming on Avatar 2 is 100% Complete Honestly, Spielberg never seemed all that enthusiastic about another Indiana Jones adventure. Hell, he wasn’t excited to do Kingdom of the Crystal Skull until George Lucas practically forced the project on him. At any rate, it’s probably best for someone else to dust off ole Indy and pump some fresh life into the franchise. Hopefully, Mangold can do just that! Indiana Jones 5 is still set for a July 29, 2022 release, though that date could change faster than Elsa Schneider’s allegiances.
