Suited for War

You’ll need to equip all slots with Legendary or Exotic gear and that isn’t simple. Through some lucky drops you might be able to speed it up but the surest way of completing this daunting task is to raise your Vanguard and Crucible ranks to 3 so you may purchase Weapons and Armor with Marks. It will take some time and could take upto 3 weeks to be able to purchase everything, but with a little luck and purchases from Xur, Agent of the Nine you can do it a bit faster.

Have all armor and weapon slots equipped with Legendary or Exotic gear.

Trophy icon

Kill 25 Fallen with precision shots in 1 mission without dying.

Trophy icon

Lucky 7s

You don’t need to obtain exactly 777 points, simply go over it. You’ll earn points for almost everything you do.

Play through the Story Missions and you’ll likely pick this one up.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Attain a Grimoire score of 777.

Trophy icon
20

Bane of the Dead

Hive will take precision damage from headshots. The best place to do this early is during “The Dark Within” while on your way through the Lunar Complex. The Hive spawn almost continually until you defeat the Wizard so line up your shots to earn this one pretty easily.

There are plenty of places to do this easily, the best one is the end of the first mission on the Moon, “The Dark Beyond” where you’ll be faced with a large number of Hive. Just toss a Grenade in that mess to get a bunch of kills quickly.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Blink of an Eye

Kill 5 enemies in 3 seconds.

Trophy icon
20

Relic Hunter

This is a weekend only event. You need to take control of a poin; its simple enough with a good team. A Titan with Ward of Dawn can guard the point easily and getting the Heavy Weapon Ammo at 2:00, 5:00, and 9:00 is useful.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Relic Hunter

Assist in capturing 20 capture points in Salvage.

Trophy icon
20

Valorous

You’ll need to earn 100 Vanguard Marks. You’ll get 4 from Gold Tier on Public Events and it’s easy enough to run around Earth to obtain these. The Weekly Nightfall will net 15 Marks and Weekly Heroic Strike is another 9. The Daily Story Mission is another 5 Marks and isn’t very challenging most of the time in comparison. Likewise, if you can’t handle the harder mission just do some Vanguard Strikes.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Valorous

Earn the maximum weekly Vanguard score.

Trophy icon
30

Notorious

You’ll need 100 Crucible Marks and there isn’t an easy way to get this. Rumble is the fastest way, especially if you’re pretty good. Winning earns 3 Marks and losing earns 2 Marks, so at the most you’ll have to play 50 matches.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Notorious

Earn the maximum weekly Crucible score.

Trophy icon
30

Public Defender

The best place to do this is on Earth. Start a Patrol and visit the Mothyards at XX:00 and XX:30 for a Public Event then visit The Divide at XX:15 and XX:45 for another. Most of them are pretty simple, just defend or destroy. The only hard one is killing the target before it reaches its destination.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Public Defender

Earn the highest tier of completion in 10 public events.

Trophy icon
20

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Ask Questions Later

Earn a first strike kill in PvP.

Trophy icon
20

Excessive Force

You’ll get heavy weapon ammo every 4 minutes or so and it’s usually in the same spot on every map. The Machine Gun will let you get more kills if you play safe, but the Rocket Launcher works wonders in Control where everyone tries to guard a control point since you can just let a round fly and likely get 2-4 kills easily.

Trophy/Achievement Icon

Excessive Force

Register 25 kills in PvP with heavy weapons.

Trophy icon
20

Triple Play

Bounties will net 50 or 100 and Patrols/Vanguard Strikes net 10-25. This can be increased by doing Nightfall and earning a bonus 25% for everything else.

The easiest Strike is the Nexus on Venus. The initial area with the three Servitors can be handled by staying at the entrance and picking them off. From here you can practically run past everything else to the boss. Stay up top and you can shoot the boss easily, you’ll just have to defeat the Minotaur that spawns every 30 seconds or so behind you. A Void Fusion Rifle/Sniper Rifle should be plenty to defeat it and keep you from harm.
