Using reseach kits on precurson weapons destroys a weapon, but does not give spirit of the weapon


Recommended Posts

Using reseach kits on precurson weapons destroys a weapon, but does not give spirit of the weapon. Research kits being able to dismantle a weapon should provide spirit of the precursor weapon, if used on the precursor weapon. Alternatively they should not be usuable on any of the precursor weapons or their experiments etc...

Repro steps:
# Add precursor weapon (eg. mechanism, dusk, dawn etc)
# Add research kit
# Use research kit on precursor weapon
# Observe how player is given some research notes, but no spirit of the weapon

Expected result - Player should receive spirit of the weapon or not be able to use research kits on precursor weapon

Observed result - player receives research notes without spirit of the weapon

Yea because you did not use salvage kit that was in the game when precuror crafting became a thing.

I agree research kit should not be able to salvage those ascended but why did you even try?

Research kits share icons with salvage kits. Many precursors and pre precursor weapons like the Device for example are exotic quality and any salvage kit can be used on them. Since it is a crafted item research kits can be used on them as well. That was a mistake that was very quickly resolved by player support. 

Since the behavior is 100% unintended it is just right to report it as a bug to prevent other players from making this mistake. And i am sure this happens fairly frequently
