Public events on Earth is the fastest way to do this. Go to Earth and go to Patrol. You get four marks per event completed. It is possible to get sixteen Vanguard Marks per hour using this system. At X:00 and X:30 the public event at the Mothyards can be completed. At X:15 and X:45 the public event at The Divide can be completed. Move from one to the other every fifteen minutes to catch each event. Repeat as necessary.

The new way to do this (full credit goes to BladeOfArchon) is to simply get to Rank 1 with the Vanguard.
prakkero Works great, sometimes the times seem to be off for a minute or two, but no biggie.

Internet Ham Glad it was helpful! It is tedious, but definitely more efficient than running strikes!

ClaytThaGreat I am confused... is this done in Patrol? Please be more specific...
Posted by ClaytThaGreat on 17 Sep 14 at 12:29
Internet Ham Yes in Patrol.

ziplobthud mothyards is area full of the old rusted airplanes

CTM AudiRS6 You may want to add that when you spawn, go right, to the building with the staircase to head towards The Divide, and go left past the tunnel/drian thing towards the wrecked plains to be in the Mothyards.

Thanks for the times and locations though. Game needs a map.

Barad 007 Perfect thanks!

thelllo Used this last night, works exactly as described. One note: if you finish the events quickly, you can (sometimes) catch the event in the Steppes (the area where you spawn) as you travel between Mothyards and the Divide.

Arador Waited at the Divide for the X:45 one and nothing happened

MITCHHICKS Brilliant. Up vote for you sir.

CTM AudiRS6 ASR4DOR, you have to be killing enemies, cant be away.
Posted by CTM AudiRS6 on 19 Sep 14 at 23:22
Internet Ham I have been way and it has shown up. The Mothyards one has not shown up for me, but only once and I think I may have missed it by half a minute or so. Just move onto the next one and you will be gravy!

MORBSTA Good solution but I keep getting kicked out of destiny dnt know why
Posted by MORBSTA on 20 Sep 14 at 19:22
Internet Ham Its down at the moment.
Posted by Internet Ham on 20 Sep 14 at 19:23
MORBSTA Got the hundred marks but no cheevo how come
Posted by MORBSTA on 20 Sep 14 at 23:54
Shadow XBL MORBSTA - 1) you have to do 100 in a week's time, not total. 2) you may need to go to settings in game, log out > switch profile, then choose your gamertag again. This is because the achieves are glitched.

FYI, today the events stopped happening on Earth midway through the day. Weird.

pompeyladbfp maybe they have learnt! saw this a week ago on another site.. definately the most effecient.. the guy gave a map and also times for rarer public events so you can sometimes get 4-6 events per hour. roughly 20 points a hour.
this is also great for gaining legendary gear once you wear faction item

O D 3 S S 3 Y I found this site useful and 90% of the time accurate.

x6StringSkeptic My achievement didn't pop for 2 days after I maxed them, but it did finally pop when I signed in.

MC PHILABUSTA How can u tell how many u have for the week?
Posted by MC PHILABUSTA on 27 Sep 14 at 15:52
Internet Ham Google will help you.

Falensarano On the orbit map, there are circles that fill around the strike playlist icon and the crucible icon (blue and red respectively). I believe these track your weekly progress.

BeSlayed works best, got 60 marks in like 4 hours playtime.. here is a site where you can see the events incoming :

i went for Skywatch and Divide events every 15 min

Timerider42 The log out > switch profile method worked for me (to un-glitch the achievement).
Posted by Timerider42 on 07 Oct 14 at 04:37

be mindful of the event colour as they represent rarity, meaning there is a chance the event may happen but doesn't always.

Recreat3 Switching profile fixed for me thanks guys.

Btw the latest lvl 26 weekly strike gives you 23 points.
Posted by Recreat3 on 14 Dec 14 at 23:36
ScuzzyBunny I think you are getting negative votes because Destiny removed Vanguard/ Crucible marks and changed the requirements of the achv. A simple update/ edit will make your solution valid again.

Internet Ham Wow this solution has not been commented on in over a year. I will make adjustments.

xDaddy Cake whats the new requirements for this
Posted by xDaddy Cake on 01 Mar 16 at 02:48
MustKillMoWhee I agree with xDaddy Cake, just saying you have to reach rank 1 doesn't tell us anything, especially when that's literally the description of the achievement. Tell us what we have to do in order to rank up.

Mattyl22l Is this achievement possibly glitched? I was on my main character [Titan] and happened to notice I'm like Vanguard rank 1 and a half...Do I need to fill all of rank 1 and have it display 2 to get this achievement?
Posted by Mattyl22l on 29 Aug 18 at 01:39
EtherionNatsu same question as Mattyl22l, not sure if i need to get it to display rank 2
