Wavesplitter, Destiny 2's exotic trace rifle, was launched in September 2018 as a 12-month PlayStation 4 exclusive, but PC and Xbox One players were allowed to buy it from Xur for a brief period recently. So, it's Bungie to the rescue.
Well, rescue with quotation marks since there was nothing to rescue but pride here. In Bungie's case, of course, it was professional pride, as they promised PS4 users exclusive content.
It turns out that between the time of the last Destiny 2 patch and Xur's departure, players were offered to buy Wavesplitters and many of them did. Bungie found out relatively quickly and said they'll further investigate the matter.
The company said that they're working on a fix at the moment, which means PC and Xbox One players can continue to use Destiny 2's Wavesplitters for a bit more.
"After the fix goes live, they will still have it in their inventories, but will not be able to equip it until this weapon enters the general Exotic loot pool in September 2019", Bungie said on their forums.
Now, as unfortunate as the even may have been for Bungie, we found it pretty funny - no harm, no foul we guess. Besides, the studio seems to have found a great way to let Destiny 2's Wavesplitter owners on PC and Xbox One have their gun and eat it.
The dev also added four new Exotic weapon catalysts that will be dropping in Nightfall, strikes and the Crucible, more precisely Prospector, Rat King and Hard Light for Nightfall and strikes, whereas the Crucible will be giving the Suros Regime.
So, if you're one of Destiny 2's players who bought the Wavesplitter, you'll have to wait until September 2019 to use it again, so let's hope you at least made it count.
