So for example, Daily Sorties if the modifier is to limit to Shotguns for example i should still be able to use the claws, the are right there after all. Another case would be when those grineer enemies that disarm you.

look at excalibur, you can use exalted blade even if melee is prohibited.

Garuda doesn't have an equivalent ability. She uses her claws as a weapon if no other melee is equipped, but it is still a normal weapon. A weapon that isn't allowed in a non-Melee only Sortie.

It's not a normal weapon it's a frame specific weapon

But it's normal. It's a Claws-type weapon just only usable by Garuda. It isn't central to her abilities or has an ability just to bring them out and use them ala Valkyr.

There's no reason Garuda should be allowed to use normal melee weapons in a game mode specifically excluding melee weapons.

1) Its her passive ability.

2) She currently isn't allowed to use them in melee only sorties, so its not a 'normal weapon'. (This is probably a bug tho. Set Bonuses also don't trigger on her talons.)

If excal or valkyr can take our their weapons thanks to abilities, so should she.

No her passive is her passive. The whole claw thing is literally extra. Given it is a melee weapon that has no place in her abilities besides fluff, there's no reason for her to keep access to it.

That may be a bug and it's likely due to being cloned from the separate moddable exalted weapons. Does not change the fact it isn't part of any abilities. It's just an extra bit for if no melee is equipped, not when you aren't allowed to use melee.

Their abilities are centered around those weapons, though. Valkyr minus her Talons makes Hysteria literally unusable. What exactly will Excal do with EB with no sword?

Except that all ability weapons still work and are full modded. Why should Garuda's be different?

Garuda's claws don't actually get used in her abilities. None of her abilities involve exalted claws.
