Is this part of the level 61-71 bug? During that time no tier VIII gear (weapons, armor, mods) spawns at all: no merchant inventory, no containers, no loot drops, and no loot boxes from Strike Team missions (if you have that perk).
It's happening to a lot of people in NG+ because that's when they hit those levels, but it's tied to tier VIII gear (and therefore levels 61-71, when that tier spawns) rather than any particular quest or playthrough.
If you're encountering this bug, the only "fix" is to hit level 71, at which point you should start seeing tier IX gear.
I think I'm able to confirm this as well. I came into NG+ at high 50s and there was stuff in shops from what I can remember. Now I'm 63 getting to Kadara again to find that the shops are all empty. Weird that a single tier of gear doesn't spawn in shops.
I didn't mean to imply that it had anything to do with NG+, wasn't really thinking about what I was typing at the time. I also hope that they can get this fixed asap as augmentations and mods seem to disappear from the shops as well. Don't really buy equipment anymore so I'm not too worried about that.
Sorry! I didn't mean to imply I was jumping on you for the bit about NG+. I know a lot of people are hitting the 60s in the second playthrough, and that really added to the confusion when it wasn't clear that it was a tier/level-related bug and that gear would re-appear later on.
God, this is soooooooooooo annoying. Did they forget to add the tier 8 items. I get AVP rewards and every time there is a blank entry where I SHOULD be getting a weapon or piece of kit... but instead it gives you nothing.
From level 60 to level 71 NEVER open a chest or even a multiplayer item loot chest because you will be doing yourself out of getting a good bit of kit. Just wait until level 71 when it apparently starts working again and supplying weapons and armour once more.
