    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.

    ChucklestyleI'm trash at crucible, which means I can confirm that since each element has its own progress bar, you can match your guns and subclass and work on one at a time and once you hit 100$ it's "locked in" and can't be reduced.

    HybridchldI'm assuming you mean Solar, Void and Arc rather than Kinetic?

    The SCHWARTZ 00Yup, my bad. Thanks for the correction.

    This isn't really a solution, but I couldn't find a list of exotic quests that do NOT count for this achievement. This could be bugged, but as of the day I'm writing this; these exotic quests seem to not count, possibly because they are from year 1, or Year 3: Shadowkeep.

    Deathbringer, Xenophage, Leviathan's Breath, Riskrunner*, MIDA multi-tool*, Rat King*, Last Word**, Bad Juju**

    My guess, it needs to be a year 2: forsaken quest for this achievement.
    Please comment if these did work for you, or you are aware of some others that don't count!
