This has to be done inside the Awakened DLC. I tried to do it outside and while I made a weapon with a MK-II tip it did not unlock the achievement. So, if you want to make this while in the DLC that works but what I did was go back into the DLC through chapter select since I didn't look at the achievement list beforehand.

I didn't exactly scour the DLC for the weapon parts but if you know this series it's that usually the parts and such are just around a corner that's off in the other direction of where you need to go. I found two MK-II weapon tips in the DLC. One though WAS behind a torque bar door so if you have Tungsten saved up and you probably should by now.....use it because there's at least 3-4 of these doors in the DLC and like I said one has the weapon tip in it.

This achievement is unlocked by going to the crafting table and creating a weapon that contains any MK-II weapon tip. All you really need to use is a frame, an upper module, and a tip. In order to be able to attach a MK-II weapon tip, you must install it on a MK-II weapon frame. A standard frame will not work. There are two ways to do this:

1). If you have already completed the game once, and you completed all optional mission including the co-op missions, then you will already have the MK-II frames unlocked. If you collected all the artifacts during your first playthrough, then you will already have the MK-II tip set unlocked. Now all you need to do is get to the nearest crafting table and build yourself a weapon.

2). If you don't already have the required parts, then here's what you need to do: Right at the beginning, after talking with Carver, head right past the grapple climbing gizmo and look in the back corner of the cave on the ground to find a weapon part. This part is a MK-II Overclocked Heavy Frame. Now climb up out of the cave. When you come to the very first building that you can enter (it contains a crafting table) head through it and go back outside. Make an immediate right when you exit and go around the corner of the building. Laying on the ground next to the building is a Directed Suspension Field, which is a MK-II weapon tip. Head back into the building, go to the handily close by crafting table, and make your weapon.

The achievement will unlock immediately. If you do not wish to keep the weapon you just made, then place it in the safe, open up the safe in the crafting table, and disassemble the weapon to get your parts back.
