    Oh Jay ArrAnyone downvoting this guide is on crack. It let me get the remaining Relic weapons in about an hour.

    Artist Deidaraseems this is still glitched. so many guides so little people have it.

    started this when game came out and it glitched for me. stuck on 23%. and yes i helped 2 others get it, got a kill myself first then traded the weapon to him. both of them unlocked it, mine is stuck on 23% still. i can understand if i miss one like the dropshot.. but sniper, lancer, torq, gnasher etc.. how can you miss those to get kills with?

    ManicMurphyGood guide! It made the open world sections much more enjoyable finding all of these and some of the relics will come in for my insane play through. Thanks!

    THE WIZE MONKEYI missed the enforcer, went back for it on a new save and it didnt unlock :(

    BradLeafsFan9@THE WIZE MONKEY if you were not the host, they will not combine. ex. you played with a homie and they were the ones to host, then you go to your own set of save file and try to get the last one, it will not work. Either get your friend to invite you to a game to get the last Relic, or get all of them on your own save file. Hope that helps, thats the only reason why it would not work

    THE WIZE MONKEYI was host for the entire game, didn't do the enforcer, went back by myself for the enforcer.

    Surely I don't need someone in my lobby?

    TheLightMasterThanks for the video. This was very helpful. Shame yours hasn't popped yet.

    KAW 24I haven't got this yet (just started Act III) but I think it's worth pointing out the game will discard your equipped weapons before you can get any kills in Act II Ch 5. I didn't know this and had the relic dropshot on me. I didn't have any kills with it at that point but I expected to get some kills during the chapter, which didn't happen - oops.

    prokophow in the world do i get a kill with this damn dropshot???? it just freezes the enemies.

    figured it out on my own. grab the dropshot relic. go to the mine or whatever where you fight a few waves of guys on ice. shoot the ice with a lancer or hammerburst when an enemy is on the ice. then hit em with the dropshot. took a few times for it to register but it worked
