    Pretty straight forward once again. You can destroy cards in your possession that you don't want and get some Scrap in return.

    Go to Customization or Manage Bounties and find a card you have but one you're not interested in keeping. Press cn_X and then confirm its destruction. Repeat the process until you have enough to craft a card with low Scrap value.

    I personally crafted a common Lancer skin that was worth a little more than 100 Scrap.

    Anima Pura's guide is correct but I wanted to add the card values.

    Creating using scrap:
    Green (common)=40
    Blue (rare)=150
    Purple (epic)=600
    Yellow (legendary)=2400

    Deleting scrap gained:
    Green (common)=5
    Blue (rare)=20
    Purple (epic)=150
    Yellow (legendary)=600

    -Keep in mind if your going for the "Create a Legendary Card" achievement it may be smart to save your scrap, since it's essentially luck based on your card pulls from Gears Packs. I personally have deleted multiple legendary weapons skins I didn't like for 600 scrap a piece.
    -If your going for Epic or Legendary cards I would pick the Operations packs over the Elite packs. I have pulled 1 Legendary and 1 Epic from about 10 Elite packs. However, Operations are cheaper and I have pulled 3 Epics and a Legendary from about 15 packs of those.

    -You have no guarantee of pulling anything from an Elite pack so don't think you'll get a Legendary for sure.
    -Horde packs only matter for upgrading skill cards in Horde or if you want more bounties.
    -Versus packs will just really get you more Versus bounties.
    -If your scraping Horde or Versus packs it won't really matter as both cost 400 credits in the store and the scrap values will be the same.

    KanchanaburiWould be good to have this as a complete solution adding all the info needed and not just an amendment to the other solution.

    Nade NapalmIt does not matter which legendary card you create. A character or weapon skin will both unlock the achievement.
