Apparently, Bungie has announced that Rise of Iron players would get a Gjallarhorn. Bungie has fulfilled the promise, with a few conditions. However, there was a slight catch, the players need to pre-order. The Destiny Guide for acquiring Gjallarhorn is below
Every player will surely get their hands on the said weapon. But the people who pre-ordered the expansion will receive the Iron version. The idea of having a black Gjallarhorn was enough for most of the players to pre-order the DLC back then.
However, Bungie missed the explanation of how the players will acquire the weapon. Much similar to Black Spindle and Sleeper Simulant, the Gjallarhorn was supposed to be an exotic weapon quest.
Long-story-short, the players will receive the Iron Gjallarhorn immediately. As soon as the players reach the Tower, the Postmaster will have the weapon ready. However, the players won?t be able to use it immediately.
The Iron Gjallarhorn can be considered as a skin or a casing. It can only be used after the players acquire the reward of the quest Gjallarhorn. Until then, they won?t be able to use the real Iron version of the weapon.
Destiny Guide – How To Get The Quest

The quest is the Gjallarhorn exotic weapon quest. In order to assemble the Year 3 Gjallarhorn, 7 medallions must be acquired.
