Weapon sunsetting in action (Destiny)

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.

Bungie can't reasonably expect players to re-grind for the same weapons with the same perks. If the prior weapon roll can still be obtained in the "new" version of the gun, the "old" gun's cap needs to be increased to match the "new" version. Things like this make it feel like the developers don't play their own game. It's one thing to accept weapon sunsetting as a necessary evil, but implementing it like this does not move the ball forward.
