In Horde play as Jack, get 10K fabricator points then buy a forge from the fabricator.
How to
Hold cn_X to pick up a weapon while hovering over it.
Then when hovering over the forge and hold cn_X to melt the weapon.

Grenades and Pistols are not required and cannot be melted.
This can be completed accross multiple Horde games.

What you need to melt is:
-Breaker Mace - Only dropped by a Warden boss.
-Claw Light Machine Gun
-Cryo Cannon
-Gnasher Shotgun
-Lancer with chainsaw - Only dropped by allies. (Marcus)
-Lancer with Grenade Launcher - Only dropped by allies. (J.D.)
-Retro Lancer - Only dropped by allies. (Kait)
-Markza MK1
-RL-4 Salvo
-Torque Bow
-Tri shot - Dropped by a Stump mini-boss and Guardians

Notes: You cannot remove a weapon from a Guardian corpse so you may need your allies help with this one.

Mini-Bosses only spawn in at waves 5,15,25,35,45.
Bosses only spawn in at waves 10,20,30,40,50.

The easiest way to get the Lancers done is to Play split screen or with a freind in a private game. Set the wave to 41 so you have enough scrap immediatly to make a forge before the wave starts and have your human drop a weapon, by holding a D-Pad button for 7 seconds.
