Izanagi’s Burden is one of the best weapons in the game and has been unobtainable since the release of Destiny 2: New light.
Izanagi’s Burden is definitely among the top 3 exotic weapons in Destiny 2. It’s an exotic sniper rifle that has really useful perks and an insane amount of damage.
Destiny 2 New Light launched on Steam on 1st October this year. Since the release, players have been unable to earn Izanagi’s Burden. This weapon is crucial for the completion of different raids in an effective manner. Being an exotic sniper rifle, Izanagi’s Burden deals humongous amounts of damage instantly. Originally this weapon was introduced in the game with Season of the Forge. The exotic perk allows the players to combine the whole magazine to deliver a devastating single ‘Honed Edge’ shot.
Izanagi’s Burden is right now impossible to obtain due to the bug related to the Forge activities. The questline for acquiring the gun heavily relies on them. The progress cannot be marked in order to proceed in the quest.
Bungie talked about a fix with the Festival of the Lost update, and in a manner, they delivered upon it. Players now are able to progress in the first few phases of the quest. But, at the same time, Bungie also broke the quest accidentally. Players are complaining about how the progress is not registering even if they complete the required steps for the quest.
Dylan “dmg04” Gafner, Bungie community manager at Bungie, confirmed that they are aware of the new problem. Responding to complaints, he said: “Team is digging on this right now. Fully understand the frustrations here, as players are looking for a top DPS weapon to use in difficult content.”
Players had to invest a lot of time in gaining progress in the quest to no avail. Losing ‘rare’ forge bounties has frustrated a lot of players worldwide. It’s quite sad to see players decimating difficult missions of the game with Izanagi’s Burden while you can just sit and wait for the improvement of the current state of the game.
Gafner being unable to give a precise date on the fix, said, “Once we have more info on the underlying bug, the proposed fix, and a timeline, we’ll let you know.”
Not being able to get Izanagi’s Burden is a buzzkill for sure. But, at the same time, we must be patient, Bungie just shifted their game onto a new platform, a few bugs popping up here and there are obvious. Bungie is trying hard to fix the game and give gamers the best experience. Hopefully, Izanagi’s Burden will soon be attainable.
