Seems that all the solstice named weapons i got from the weekly contracts are unencrypted.
However, the ones i got from trades with other players are encrypted.

Is there any way to fix that?

Note: most of those weapons which came unencrypted were taken from claims section.

None of my named guns are encrypted either.

They going to claims first, perchance?

Sounds like OPs are, and mine are as well.

how do you tell if it is encrypted? and what does the encryption do?

There will be a little lock icon on the gun. When a weapon is encrypted, it means the rarity can't be upgraded further, but it receives a damage boost as well.

A weapon will encrypt once you upgrade its rarity so you can only upgrade it once, but since legendary weapons can't be upgraded, they all drop as encrypted so they can benefit from the damage boost.

There's a known issue with items unencrypting when you take them out of claims. Once that's fixed, we'll do a pass on all existing legendaries and make sure they're encrypted.

Ahhh ok well then some of my legendaries are not encrypted then cause they do not have locks anywhere and yeah i think they did go to claims first. thank you.

I don't know if it is a related problem or not but some of my epic weapons from the event do not have the option to retrieve mods from them. I do not remember if the went to claims first.

By any chance, do you have 4 free inventory slots (or however many mods you have on that gun) when trying to retrieve mods? Otherwise, the option won't appear.

I had that .. I think I just relogged ad the problem was corrected, I was able to retrieve, it was actually a restart, I exited game then started glyph again.
It was the only time

@ Xaat Well when i go back on i will check it again to see if it works.

@ Fuzzy I am not sure actually but i will check for sure when i am back on.

Hopefully everything works out one way or another. Thanks to both of you.

If you have a legendary in claims when you log out, then when you log back in that legendary still in claims, will not be encrypted. So always claim any legendaries before you log out, because the ones in claims lose encryption when you log of.

I have a Reckoning that is unencrypted for that reason. Nobody wants to buy an unencrypted Reckoning! :(

ah, this makes alot of sense, after actually looking at my inv i noticed well over half of my weapons are not encrypted.
but some of my weapon that still went into claims got encrypted.

So technically it would be possible to upgrade rarity on a oh weapon... I wonder.... Will it then be something like this??

Maybe the encryption glitch is the source of the discrepancy in damage between two DC weapons of the same type some people have been talking about.

It'd be a 3% difference between the encrypted and non-encrypted.
