This is just embarrassing. 

Here we are again
I have to assume it's happened again - another exotic weapon event rolled out with major errors.

Some of the features
The event is called Bounty Cascade (again) and labelled as a three stage event. The gear is Ho Ho Howdy (which I have), the weapons are (already earnt) Lawmaker MK1 (for stage 1), Lawmaker MK2 (for stage 2) and Winter Veil (for stage 3). If anyone wants more screen pics showing this let me know and I'll post them. The timer is showing 1 day and 5 hours until the next chapter is available.

The event missions are playable
The event is letting me use a mostly upgraded Winter Veil weapon (that I already own) to do the missions - so that's a plus.

Anyone else, or is it just me?

My optimism and hope have been smashed again
I also just lost the bet btw (will pay up on Thursday Ironic_S0ck21). I was seriously optimistic that 2021 would not be the same cluster that 2020 was when it came to exotic weapon event roll outs. It's only January 11 FFS - couldn't you have just got (say) the first three events for this year right. This is very sad.

[Edit: changed thread name to include complete dare range. Note: There are too many other recent threads called "Bounty Cascade" so I deliberately left that name off the title.]

You are not alone, Snipey. I have the same old Bounty Cascade. 🤮

Better add Lawmaker MK3 to the list above too - it's my "current requirement"

... looks like someone is trying to fix it (but they missed a few things) the upgrade requirements are still set to that of the first stage of a three stage event (and the numbers from screen to screen don't match).

Have other screen pics if anyone wants them.

For the record (attached pic).

I did some upgrades just to see what would happen.

So far - unlike the above Legendary update requirements I needed to "USE" Artifact items -- got Transaction cannot be completed // OK, so I wasted some rubies to buy Battle Packs, upgrade Weapon (3X) and wasted some more to finish level 2 -- so this will likely get worse
