Bungie has taken notice of some PC players that were able to purchase the PlayStation 4 exclusive weapon in Destiny 2 Forsaken. The option to get the weapon was available for PC players by accident, as Bungie has now decided to block players from equipping the weapon.
A fix will start to roll out today to prevent players on the PC and Xbox One to get the Wavesplitter weapon that is a PlayStation 4 exclusive. The weapon could be taken from the traveling alien salesman, Xur, who was accidently selling the weapon to some players last weekend.
We’re investigating an issue where the Sony exclusive weapon Wavesplitter was made available from Xûr on Xbox and PC. We’re currently working on a fix. In the meantime, Xbox and PC players who acquired the weapon will be able to use it. 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 also stated that weapon was not supposed to be made available on other platforms, as the exclusivity deal with PlayStation hold up until September of this year. Some fans that got the weapon may have enjoyed it for a little while, as with the update it will be unable to be equipped anymore. Players will still get to keep the weapon, and can see it in the inventory, but it will remain unusable until the exclusivity ends in September.
Fans are obviously not happy with this, as some fans have commenting in the matter. Some say that this was fixed immediately while it takes weeks for Bungie to straighten out balance issues and bugs. Meanwhile, many question why it cant be available to everyone, now that it has leaked. But as several people point out, this is a contractual obligation here that Bungie did with Sony as a one year deal.
