    Xbox One achievements don't always unlock after you have earned them. If this achievement does not unlock for you, do the following:
    - Sign in to Xbox Live, load up Destiny and select a character
    - Press the Guide button and sign out of Xbox Live
    - Sign back in to Xbox Live and when you select your character your achievement will unlock.
    There are several ways to get an Exotic Weapon:
    - Strike reward
    - Raid reward
    - Crucible reward
    - From an Engram
    - Purchase one from Xûr (between Friday to Sunday 9:00am UTC)

    Then you need to unlock the upgrades by gaining XP while the weapon is equipped.

    Finally you will need the following to install the upgrades:
    - Glimmer
    - Weapon Parts
    - Spinmetal/Helium Filaments/Spirit Bloom/Relic Iron
    - Exotic Shard


    This was the solution prior to the release of 2.0.0.3

    For anyone still trying to get this. You can get the achievement with the current Exotics. If you have one maxed out as far as the perks it wont activate the achievement. you have to have BOTH ornaments on the exotic for it to unlock the achievement. You can now buy these ornaments at the kiosk where the post master is with Silver Dust.

    I just did it with Bad JuJu. i have one ornaments and dismantled 3 random ornaments for other guns that i had and bought the 2nd ornament and after equipping both ornaments, then doing the usual switch profile when i logged back into my char the achievement popped.

    *Fix For Packing Heat Achievement Glitched May 2015

    I unlocked this achievement today by fully upgrading the exotic shotgun Lord of Wolves from the House of Wolves DLC.

    I had been unable to unlock this achievement since i started playing this game two months ago.
    I fully upgraded 14 different non-DLC exotics without the achievement unlocking.

    I am confident that the only way to unlock this achievement at this time is to fully upgrade 1 of the 4 House of Wolves DLC exotic weapons.

    The 4 House of Wolves exotic weapons are:
    347 Vesta Dynasty, Lord of Wolves, Queenbreakers’ Bow and Dreg’s Promise.

    A house of wolves exotic weapon can be obtained via the Elder Cipher Exotic Bounty, randomly dropped only in level 34 & 35 by the Prison of Elders final boss.

    The only other way to get this achievement at this time is to fully upgrade the Vex Mythoclast. This weapon can only be obtained by killing Atheon in the Vault of Glass on hard mode.
