Weapon sunsetting in action (Destiny)

It’s taken less than 12 hours for weapon sunsetting to rear it’s ugly head in a bad way. These 3 posts are all on the Destiny Reddit front page:

The tl;dr here is that “new” versions of several “old” weapons have been added to the world loot pool. These “new” versions have a level cap way up in the 1300s, while the old versions are maxed out at 1060. The icing on the cake is that the “new” versions are literally identical to the old ones... same exact perk pools. And no, the new ones can’t be infused into the old ones. So if you’ve got an Arsenic Bite or a Lonesome that you really love and have thousands of kills with, and you want to keep using it in the future, you’ll have to re-grind for it just so you can get a “new” version of the exact same gun with a higher number on it.
