Destiny 2’s month-to-month PvP spectacular, Iron Banner, made its debut within the Season of the Splicer on Tuesday. This time round, Iron Banner vendor Lord Saladin introduced with him a number of weapons: two reprised Iron Banner weapons from previous seasons, and two brand-new weapons, the Riiswalker shotgun and the Archon’s Thunder machine gun.

Unfortunately, a bug has prevented the brand new weapons from dropping like they’re presupposed to. Even worse, Bungie wasn’t capable of inform Guardians of the bug till after many gamers wasted their Iron Banner tokens on the lookout for the brand new weapons.

Iron Banner solely reveals up as soon as a month in Destiny 2, and presents gamers a novel model of the Control gametype (seize the zones). When gamers full matches, they earn Iron Banner tokens. Players can then flip in these tokens to Lord Saladin in change for Iron Banner weapons and armor. These Iron Banner gadgets additionally drop from match completions, the seasonal Iron Banner quest, and bounties that Saladin presents every month.

At almost 7 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, Bungie Help tweeted that Archon’s Thunder and Riiswalker are at present solely accessible from Saladin’s new “Leverage the Void” quest. The weapons are usually not dropping after matches, bounties, or — worst of all — token turn-ins.

Unlike another currencies in Destiny 2, Iron Banner tokens don’t expire between seasons. This signifies that gamers may theoretically save up tokens for the subsequent time Lord Saladin brings one thing new. And that’s precisely what many (now offended) Destiny 2 fans did.

Players had been capable of dive into Iron Banner and spend tokens for almost six hours earlier than Bungie revealed the bug. This led to quite a few posts on Destiny’s subreddit from gamers complaining about spending hundreds and even 1000’s of tokens with out getting both of the brand new weapons.

Many different gamers took to Twitter to complain about what they perceived to be a low or unfortunate drop charge.

Once Bungie introduced the bug on its Bungie Help Twitter, gamers acquired much more pissed off.

Other gamers, included content material creators, have began begging Bungie to refund their wasted Iron Banner tokens.

Bungie Help hasn’t provided an replace on the bug since Tuesday, and Bungie’s group administrators haven’t given an replace both. Without any variety of replace, it’s at present unclear if Riiswalker or Archon’s Thunder will make it into Saladin’s loot pool till subsequent Iron Banner. With this advanced of a difficulty, it’s additionally unimaginable to know if Bungie can refund gamers’ wasted Iron Banner tokens.

Guardians are at present enjoying the ready sport whereas Bungie delves into the bug behind the scenes. We’ll replace this put up if Bungie gives any updates.
