    EZist way to get this is Act 2 Chptr 4. Super quick , very little effort. But dont forget to shoot something with these relics as it will apply towards the other relic achievement "Relics of the Past".

    I went back in after compaign was complete and set it on Beginner. For this achievement specifically, you will be picking up the Longshot Relic, the Lancer Relic and the Boltok relic because u need to equip all 3 at once, ONE HAS TO BE A PISTOL, obviously.

    Load Act2, Chapter 4. Go past the Outsider camp on your right, keep going down path to your skiff.

    LONGSHOT RELIC:
    Go in the direction the Skiff is pointing (briefly SW), bearing left, hug that cliffside on the left, going around it completely like a U turn, the buried traincars will be on your right. You will drop down onto the frozen lake and will see the red boathouse immediately to your left. The LONGSHOT RELIC is inside the boathouse on a table to the right as u enter.

    For the next two, you have to open the Old Cog Wall. To find Old Cog Wall, just continue on east past the boathouse, hugging that cliff wall on the left, and it's right there.

    RETRO LANDER RELIC:
    Once u get thru the Old Cog Wall on your skiff, hug that cliff wall on the left again and see that tiny rock island with a circle of ice around it? Just before it on the left is a rock formation, the one with trees? Stop in front of that one, get off the skiff and face it. Your RETRO LANCER RELIC is at the bass of the tree on the right.

    RETRO BOLTOK:
    This one was hard for me even tho there are plenty of guides. I couldn't seem to find it using any of the directions in the written guides, and is the main reason I wrote this solution.

    Find the East Tower SUBSTATION by heading east from that last Relic pick up. Go under the square shape ice bridge (the one that leads to abandoned Mine). You will see the substation in front of you. Once there, turn left and go thru the ice tunnel. Hug the ice wall on your left and follow it around. (Get fairly close to Condor Crash site but dont go under ice bridge). Just before you would go under bridge, you will see the Red Gears omen on the ice wall on the left and the Boltok Relic is on the ground just past it on right.

    There are 17 Relic Weapons in the Campaign of Gears 5 but for this achievement you only need to have equipped 3 Relic Weapons at one time.

    To get this as fast as possible there are 2 relic weapons in Act 2 Chapter 2 and 5 in Act 2 Chapter 4.

    Location of the 3 fist relic weapons you can find:
    Act II - Chapter 2
    [0:00] Enforcer relic - Found on the cliff side before opening the Northern passage wall;

    [0:27] Longshot relic - Found on the north-side of the ice lake between the Northern Passage and the Old COG Wall;

    Act II - Chapter 4
    [0:49] Boltok relic - Found beneath the the Condor Crash Site closest to the East tower substation.

    OnsidicEasier area i found...
    Red Sand Skiffing Area from UIR Airfield.

    Get Talon Relic - at the very start, before you get on Skiff, believe it was left side on plane looking at it from the front, close to outside hangar wall. .
    Gnasher Relic - On the north wall of the map... if you go all the way north of the water tower then just slightly east (water tower, all the way north, look for little grey marking on map in sand, or use the relic kills video, find cog symbol and )
    Hammerburst Relic - from the transport sitting outside the City Ruins (which is South East of Convoy) follow the wall east-south-east, till you come to the wall, just to the right you will see a building, get close you'll see gate is open, there is a body with hammer retro.

    This is way quicker, and you dont have to worry about making it through different chapters.

    I found a much easier solution, that doesnt require loading different chapters. All you need to do is skiff a little.

    Easier area i found...
    Red Sand Skiffing Area from UIR Airfield. (Act 3)

    Get Talon Relic - at the very start, before you get on Skiff, believe it was left side on plane looking at it from the front, close to outside hangar wall. .
    Gnasher Relic - On the north wall of the map... if you go all the way north of the water tower then just slightly east (water tower, all the way north, look for little grey marking on map in sand, or use the relic kills video, find cog symbol and )
    Hammerburst Relic - from the transport sitting outside the City Ruins (which is South East of Convoy) follow the wall east-south-east, till you come to the wall(railing/edge of a drop), just to the right you will see a building, get close you'll see the gate is open, there is a body with hammer retro.


    Ive included a link to Maka's Guide video just for those people that are getting lost trying to find items and also the timings.
    [07:30] - Talon
    [08:25] - Gnasher
    [11:14] - Hammerburst
