    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.

    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.

    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.
