I'm currently grinding for Luna's Howl and I'm on the solar kills step. Upon realizing that using Hard Light would be the easiest method to complete this, I took it into the Crucible only to find that every time I die, I have to reload twice to get the solar rounds before going into a fight. It's inconvenient, a time waster, and hurts my team when I'm not there when they need me because I'm reloading my Hard Light.
Also in PvE, this issue occurs a lot when I'm faced with enemies who have solar shields, and when I die, I waste more time by reloading twice AGAIN. I have no clue why Bungie hasn't made it so that the element is retained upon death, but there seems to be literally no point to it. It seems like an easy fix too, so please fix it, Bungie.
If you agree with this, please upvote so it could gain the attention of Bungie.
Would fixing it make sense? Would it improve your game experience? Would it make the weapon feel better? If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, then you can bet your ass Bungie will do nothing.
