There are a total of 17 relic weapons found in the open areas of Act 2 and Act 3. Pick them up and get a kill with each one in order to unlock this achievement. It is recommended that you use your skiff to carry up to 5 relic weapons at the same time (including your pistol). This achievement does have tracking, so make sure each kill counts as you do it.

Act 2:
[01:05] - Enforcer
[01:43] - Longshot
[02:30] - Retro Lancer
[03:24] - Torque Bow
[04:24] - Boltok
[05:15] - Dropshot
[06:21] - Boomshot
Act 3:
[07:30] - Talon
[08:25] - Gnasher
[09:27] - Claw
[10:27] - Markza
[11:14] - Hammerburst
[12:17] - Lancer GL
[13:21] - Snub
[14:17] - Overkill
[15:06] - Lancer
[15:58] - Embar

PS. If you are having issues getting this to unlock, it is likely related to the online server issues of the game.
Delta748Thanks for the guide. I was having trouble getting the Dropshot kill to register, since it doesn't technically kill the enemy. It counted for me when I performed an execution on a DBNO enemy while having the Dropshot equipped.

SashamorningGreat guide! One comment...

Delta748Actually, you should be able to put weapons on your skiff and they will carry over to Act 3. However I can't confirm this, because it worked for me on one playthrough and didn't for another.

Maka91I lost mine. I believe you are supposed to.
Posted by Maka91 on 10 Sep 19 at 16:32
SashamorningAct 3 begins 4 month later. You lose your weapons before you face any enemies.

Davis 888also probably good to know this achievement stopped working today because the load issues have come back since general release. Also Collectibles having the same issue from a few days ago again...

Denik Fortes BRDoes it have to be done all in one playthrough? My tracker was couting, but then in coop with a friend any kill count.

TheLightMasterThis just popped for me so seems to be up and running again. I found it best to use the tracker to ensure that you did in fact get the kill before discarding the weapon. Some of them it seemed to take a few kills (or perhaps had a delay).

ztauDoes this work in coop?

Dragonborn GearI was not getting progress on this when I played as second banana.

UnderpntsGnomesYeah I’m not getting any credit for relic kills when playing co-op with my buddy as of today 9/18/19
Posted by UnderpntsGnomes on 18 Sep 19 at 23:34
I NVIII I^At the moment in co-op there are some achievements like holding 3 at once and any tracking of this achievement is Host Only ^

KATAKL1ZMPerfect, thank you for another great guide 👍🏻

DriZzT1987Do executions Count?

ZuKe Zuchegnosay i cleared act 2 do enemies respawn anywhere on the map?
Posted by ZuKe Zuchegno on 26 Sep 19 at 20:47
Broon43As Delta748 commented at the top, I just popped the achievement by only doing a stealth execution holding the last relic (which was the Embar for me). So, looks like executions or stealth kills count. But, hold the weapon you need for the count just in case.
Thanks again for the guide, Maka. They're always very helpful.

FloopFlarpCould you clarify what "this achievement has tracking" means? Can this only be obtained in a single playthrough or do you mean that getting a kill before you get a checkpoint then having to restart for any reason may revert your progress?
Posted by FloopFlarp on 05 Oct 19 at 04:44
GerbasgamerHe means that the achievement app tracks the progress of the achievement.
There are 17 relic weapons, so the counter should increase in increments of about 6%.

OT: Already got a problem with one of the first relics. Picked up Retro Lancer, Torque Bow and Boltok in a row and then killed multiple enemies with each of them during the next encounter and the app only tracked two of them...

Dragonborn GearI think the same thing happened to me where a kill didn't count and after I got all my kills I went back for the ones that I missed, but the achievement still didn't unlock... I ended up doing a hard reset, and either that worked or I just got it a day or two later without trying... This achievement is not the best at tracking for whatever reason...

DangerCensoredThanks for the guide and +1 for Deltas suggestion for the Execution with the Dropshot. I was sure I got a kill the first run through but apparently I did not. A quick reload of Act 2:4 and made a bee line to the Dropshot pick up. From there just go to the nearby Oil Derrick and execute a grenadeir.

AKfoy0faceDoes anyone know if it has to be in one playthrough?
Posted by AKfoy0face on 05 Dec 19 at 02:09
THE WIZE MONKEYI missed the enforcer, went back for it on a new save and it didnt unlock :( Another guide says you can do it in multiple playthroughs but I would highly recommend doing it in one.

ALI900This does not have to be in one throughput.
Executions so far do count.

jan0biAnyone know if this still has tracking issues?

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!
