Destiny 2 – Iron Banner – Scour the Rust quest bug – How to fix

What is this Scour the Rust quest bug is Destiny 2?

It is a bug or a glitch that is preventing players from completing the Scour the Rust Iron Banner quest. This is the first Iron Banner after the Shadowkeep or Season of the Undying update. So the excitement of players is pretty justified.

The final step of the Scour the Rust quest which is called Conviction demands you to get Grenade Launcher final blows. In order to complete the Conviction quest step you need to do the following things:

  • Matches Completed – 0/15
  • Zones Captured – 0/50
  • Grenade Launcher final blows – 0/10

Now the top two requirements are fine and are pretty easy to do. But it is the third requirement where players are facing the bug. It looks like no matter how many grenade launcher final blows or eliminations you get, the progress remains stuck at 0/10.

People have already tried every single grenade launcher in the game but there has been no success so far. This bug is causing high frustration in the community because in this Iron Banner you need to complete the Scour the Rust quest in order to use your Iron Banner tokens. No matter how many tokens you have, they are useless unless you complete the quest.

How to fix this bug?

Unfortunately there is no official fix for this bug or glitch. I am pretty sure that Bungie is aware of this bug and they will be releasing a fix soon. So does that mean we have to wait till a fix arrives? Absolutely not. Though there is no permanent fix for this bug, there is certainly a workaround.

All you have to do is equip any SMG in your loadout with which you can clean up very fast and just eliminate your opponents. Yes, you heard it right, a SMG, any SMG. This might be difficult to believe but it looks like SMG final blows are being counted as Grenade Launcher final blow.

If you ask me, getting SMG elimination should way easier that getting eliminations with a Grenade Launcher. You have to get just 10 final blows so this won’t take much time.
