CHIMERA OBSCURA: Apply patient zero to 50 Allies
Recommended Helix Choices: All Mad Scientist Helixes (left helix side)

Patient Zero is your LB skill and increases Beatrix’s or targeted allies attack speed by 25% for 5 seconds while nearby enemies take 67 damage for 3 seconds.

Simply highlight an teammate and apply the skill to them. This can be done quite quickly via PVP, with Co-Op or Public PVE or even solo, targeting Deande at the start of the level in Heliophage (see screenshot)

LET THE DOGS SLIP: Affect 5 or more enemies with a single use of outbreak, 10 times

Outbreak is her ULTIMATE and plagues a target for 8 seconds dealing 42 damage per second and wounding them, reducing healing received by 60%. these effects spread among nearby enemies.

Wait for 5 or more enemies/minions to be grouped up close together, aim at one of them and fire. This can be done via PVP, however I've done it through Operations and Story missions to allow me to have greater control over the grouping (and not having enemies killed from teammates).

Note: The swarmers in the Algorithm to NOT count for this lore. However there is a group of 5 minions in the room after the Henchman fight as well as, as soon as you head down the stairs to destroy the two crystals & sometimes if your luckly with how the minions group around the big Bot, you can get a 3rd one to register. See example video below for first spot:

Void's Edge when you get sucked into the black void can also be a good spot for this if you want to play that far into the mission.
SHINING CRAZY DIAMOND: Apply infection to 100 Battleborn

Infection is Beatrix's PASSIVE and wounds enemies for 3 seconds if shot normally, 5 seconds if scoped. Infection deals 27 damage over 1 second.

Simply continue firing at enemy Battleborn and the counter will keep ticking up. It took me 2 PVP matches to get this done and may be the easiest and quickest way (especially during Chaos Rumble when it's available).

In PVE misions, major enemies have been reported to count as Battleborn. However has I can't verify this as I've completed the challenge. I'll keep this Lore as PVP-only for the meantime,
NICHT IST OHNE GIFT: Deal 50,000 damage with the Incistyx Injector in a single match, 10 times
(PVE or PVP)
Recommended Helix Choices: Mad Scientist - Plague Rat

This is your primary attack which applies Infection to enemies. Scoped shots deal 75% more damage.

I have no idea if this is doable via PVP and I haven't seen anyone report this working for them yet. I would imagine the matches would have to go for the full length of time with no surrenders or stomps and you'd have to focus on using your primary weapon rather than your skills and ultimate. Because of this, I'd suggest looking for the PVE options.

A little longer than doing Operation missions, however you will be able to get with each playthrough of the mission focusing on using your primary attack.

I ended up grinding Algorithm on Normal Hardcore as I've found mid-way or just defeating Geoff you get the 50K damage lore pop and took me between 17-24min each time. I did use attack damage boosting gear just to help this along. Example video below:

Using your primary weapon to focus on killing all the enemies, may help you get to 50K damage by the time you get to the boss fight (tested both in Attikus and Oscar Mike DLC's), however I couldn't always consistently hit the mark with the Operations, so farmed the lore via PVE instead.
INDIFFERENCES ASIDE: Kill 100 enemies with Fulminate
(PVE or PVP)
Recommended Helix Choices: Field Technician - Long Lasting

Fulminate is your second skill that fires a rapid barrage of homing projectiles that deal 27 damage each and weaken enemies, reducing attack damage by 30% for 3 seconds.

Your skill needs to kill them for this to count. I found the quickest way to farm this one is to create a gear loadout which all have cooldown reduction (I got 2 sec with my gear and helix) and starting the Algorithm. Go to the ice room area just after the Geoff boss fight keep shooting the little swarmers that spawn.

Playing up to this area will also help you work on the 'Nicht Ist Ohne Gift' lore at the same time.
