I think that the drops of the Corsair Down bounties might be bugged on my Warlock. Back in January (according to the date on a screenshot) I had one of these bounties, found the body, and then after killing the wave of Scorn that appeared the badge pickup clipped through a rock in the level geometry and ended up completely inaccessible. I left the area, came back, and couldn't find the body; I then deleted the bounty in the hope that another one would drop. I'm 99% sure that this character hasn't seen a single Corsair Down drop in the five months since then, despite quite regularly doing things in the Dreaming City. I have gone back to the area (the mists near the Spine of Keres) to check whether the body spawned, but checking all the possible spawn points against a video guide there is nothing there. Is it possible that the drops became bugged on this character somehow? My other characters see them completely as normal, and to have that long of a dry spell with them on one character after this makes me think that some flag got stuck somewhere and never cleared to allow more to drop.
Same exact issue. It would seem that if you've deleted a badge in the past, you're simply locked out of ever receiving another. I also haven't received one since the Black Armory release and didn't care enough to raise awareness to it until now. Frankly, I had completely forgotten they were a thing because they have such little gameplay impact. However, now there is an exotic locked behind it and I'm presumably locked out of that exotic now as well simply because a badge hasn't dropped for me in months. I hope they fix this soon.
