    JihzNapkinHow do I do this now that all my forsaken exotic quests are gone
    Posted by JihzNapkin on 23 Feb at 03:28
    LordSmorcYou just need 15 forsaken exotics now, so it's basically an extension of the "Exotic" achievement where you need 10 forsaken exotics. You can get some from vendors and exotic quests, the rest you need to get from random loot (i.e. it's luck). I'm not sure the best way of doing this as I haven't played since Witch Queen, how I did it before Witch Queen was by farming master/GM nightfalls. Exotics are actually fairly common here. Xur might also have Forsaken exotics in his rotation at the weekend, he had some in his rotation before Witch Queen like Trinity Ghoul.

    MelloTofuJust wanted to let you guys know I got this achievement on 3/12/22. AFTER the changes to 15 exotics. I completed the quest for Malfeasance and got the achievement with only have EIGHT exotics from forsaken.

    I got this quest BEFORE the change and finished it after. So that maybe also why I still got it idk. Cheers

    You can also do the Malfeasance exotic quest to get this achievement. Maybe a little easier compared to Crucible.

    - Keep Playing Gambit and kill the Ascended Taken Servitor. Once you’ve defeated the Primeval and earned the heart, take it back to the Drifter in the Tower.
    - Kill Taken Bosses. The best area for this is Rheasilvia.
    - Complete the questline: The Corrupted. My advice is to get a full fireteam
    - Win 10 games of Gambit and deposit 400 motes. However, losing any motes will actually set you back by two times the amount lost.
    - Kill 25 enemy Guardians in Gambit AND and either kill four enemies in a single invade once or have a teammate kill four enemies in a single invade three times.

    Hospers xNLUpvote, only working solution at this moment

    Legendary J ManSomething interesting about this one. I just got the 4 guardian kills in a Gambit match to complete the quest.

    In the invasion where I got the 4 kills I only actually killed 3 guardians. What happened was the got the first kill, then my opponents resurrected the guy I killed. So I killed the second opponent, then the guy i killed first a second time, then finally a third opponent. The game acted like I killed all 4 opponents and completed the question. Here is a link to the video. Kinda interesting and impossible to set up.

    UPDATE 1/27/21: this solution was for the Chaperone quest, but apparently, per the comments section, the Beyond Light update has broken this quest and as a result, it no longer counts toward the achievement. Luckily, there are tons of exotic quests in the game at this point that are just as straightforward, so don't sweat it. Users suggest going for Malfeasance, as it used to be a super grindy Exotic to get, but it's far easier to obtain now.

    UPDATE: as of 6/3/2021, the quest is active again!

    An alternative quest that you can take on is Holliday Family History. This quest is a little easier than the one for Ace Of Spades. It's a random drop quest that you can get once you get to the Dreaming City. Completing this will grant you the Chaperone shotgun, which is great for PvP but not very useful in PvE. The requirements are:

    - 20 kills with a shotgun in Crucible
    - 20 kills with each type of damage in Crucible (i.e. Solar, Void, and Arc, so 60 kills total). Now this part is a little tricky, because you get 5% towards your subclass total for every kill, but you also LOSE 1% every time you die. So it will take more than 20 in actuality, unless you're a god that can go on 20 straight kill streaks. It's really not too bad, only took me a few games to knock this out and I'm very average at Crucible play.
    - 15 kills against Guardians in Gambit. This was really easy, since you can invade with your Super active and rack up bodies when they aren't paying attention. All weapons count towards the 15, too.

    After this, go talk to Amanda at the Tower and turn in the contract. Boom, new Exotic and you're 20G richer.

    Legendary J ManUnfortunately as of 8/7/21 I did two versions of the Chaperone quest and neither of them popped the achievement for me. I did the main one you get from Amanda and then I had another one that gave me the Chaperone for resetting my Crucible rank.

    The SCHWARTZ 00Hmm. Maybe do a more recent one, like the quest for Deathbringer, The Lament, or Xenophage. There's a ton of exotic quests in the game now. Not sure why Chaperone isn't working again. If anyone else can confirm it's busted I'll edit the solution.

    MynameisnosremeHey, guys. I can confirm that I got this achievement today (10/11/21) by completing this exotic quest for Chaperone.
