Exotic Weapon Bounties seem to be randomly offered to Guardians. Each of them requires you to complete a set of tasks and be rewarded with an Exotic Primary Weapon. These are very hard to come by so getting this bounty is probably as rare as getting an exotic drop in regular game activities. There are several bounties that people have been offered, but you will get offered three out of a finite list. I’ll list bellow all of the possible bounties and their rewards, along with extra information based on this guide on reddit and several threads on gamefaqs (like this one).

A light in the dark
Reward: Thorn – Exotic Handgun with 260 damage

Tasks
  1. Complete The Summoning Pits Strike on the Moon.
  2. Kill 500 Hive enemies on the Moon.
  3. Get 500 crucible points (not kills) with Void Damage. One kill gives you 5 points, while 1 death gives you -2 points. What you need to do is have a positive K : D ratio and you should be fine.
  4. Kill Xyor, the Unwed in the level 26 version of The Summoning Pits. You have to wait for this boss to show up while not killing Phogoth. Just kill waves of adds until Xyor shows up. Phogoth must be unchained.
Toland’s Legacy
Reward: Bad Juju – Pulse Rifle with 396 Void damage

Tasks
  1. Complete a weekly heroic or nightmare strike.
  2. Complete 25 strikes (any strikes will suffice).
  3. Find special vendor Xûr and buy Darkness-infused weapon frame (check out our guide about Xur’s location).
  4. Obtain 10.000 points in the Crucible (you have to have K : D ratio above 1).
A Dubious Task
Reward: Invective – Shotgun with 260/300 Solar damage

Tasks
  1. Complete 5 strikes without dying (you can do the earth strike on lvl 8 for this).
  2. Earn a Kills/Death spread of 25 in the Crucible (this means you need to get 25 more kills than deaths)
  3. Complete a weekly heroic strike
  4. Purchase an Invective component from the Gunsmith for 50 special weapon ammo packs

Shattered Memory Fragment
Reward: Pocket Infinity – Fusion Rifle with 396 Solar damage
Tasks
  1. Obtain a Damaged Ghost from Venus’ Shattered Coast (You can find this ghost in a room near a statue on the coast of Venus. Go right of where you land on Venus. Go past the entrance to the Archive and you should see a statuje to your right. Go into the building left of the statue and you should find the dead ghost on the ground).
  2. Kill a Vex Gate Lord with the Heroic modifier active (“Eye of a Gate Lord” story mission on Venus).
  3. Dismantle 10 rare or higher quality Fusion Rifles.
  4. Kill enemies in a Weekly Nightfall Strike with a Fusion Rifle until the Fusion Rifle stabilizes.
A Voice in the Wilderness
Reward: Super Good Advice – machine gun

Tasks
  1. Find a A Mournful Gun by opening loot chests on Mars.
  2. Buy an ammunition module from Xûr for one strange coin. (This is a Strange Coins vendor and his location is here.)
  3. Kill 500 enemies with a machine gun
An Unknown Patron
Reward: Fate of All Fools – scout rifle

Tasks
  1. Win 5 crucible matches to obtain An Invitation.
  2. Bring the invitation to the bounty tracker to obtain The First Test.
  3. Perform feats of skill in the crucible to obtain The First Test – Completed.
  4. Return to the bounty tracker to obtain The Second Test.
  5. Trade Mote of Lights for Osiris Coins. Use the coins to compete in the Trials of Osiris. If you loose 3 times you will need to use another coin. Earn 10 wins on a single coin, or 25 wins total in the Trials of Osiris to obtain The Second Test – Completed.
  6. Return to the bounty tracker to obtain The Third Test.
  7. Perform kills, headshots, and killing sprees with any scout rifle in the crucible to obtain The Third Test – Completed.
  8. Return to the bounty tracker to finally obtain Fate of All Fools.

I hate the fact that most have Crucible tasks.
Looking at the info above, unless I get the option for "A Voice in the Wilderness", I'll just trash the bounty.

Shattered memory fragment is also worth keeping and doing if you're PVE.

Thanks for the info though, think i'll trash the light in the dark bounty as that gun doesn't seem any better than the one I have anyway (a gift for reaching Vanguard Rank 3)

If I ask nicely will everyone just stand there and let me kill them 8-) I have enough difficulty maintaining a kill/death spread of 1

Yesterday it finally dropped for me, with the fabulous choices of 500 points void damage (PvP), 10000 points (PvP), or 25 K/D spread (again PvP!).
I went for the latter since it seemed the most doable for my awesome PvP skills.
About 8 or 9 matches done and I'm at 16 / 25, where the last 2 matches cost me 5, I was 21 / 25 :(
It seems that the later in the evening the better the players get, or perhaps the worse I become.
But man, this sucks (or rather, I do of course). I just need some luck with my team and opponents.

Not sure I made the best choice but I'm trying this doing Control, figuring there you can easily find your enemies and stay close to teammates.

On a side note, in case you didn't know: the spread is not for one match and assists seem to count as well. And yes, even then I still struggle :brick:

If anyone has any tips on getting this done, please do tell, I want to get this over with ASAP.

Should be easy mate....just do the strikes off the map rather than a strike list

Indeed, I plan on running the level 8 strike on Earth. Hopefully get my 30 melees without dying and 200 headshots on Fallen bounties whilst I'm at it. :)

I don't think I have been offered any of these. Maybe I've not done enough bounties or something.

If you get a full fire team for the strike and none of you die you'll also get a trophy.

That's what I did. Takes about 15 minutes with a semi decent team per strike, 20 if less decent (if I remember correctly). 5 strikes wasn't enough for me to get all Fallen, partly because often the endbosss servitor died before even the first landing party arrived.

Random is random.

Finally managed the K / D spread, I guess that no dying tip was golden after all ;)
And with the help of @Martok and @HaloJ also got the weekly done. Thanks again for that! :woot:

Since it was too late haven't tested it out, but at least I got that exotic shotgun (a weapon class I never fired a shot with before... oh well, first time for everything).

Glad that's out of the way now, so I can focus again on the normal grinds :D

I haven't seen an exotic bounty yet. Do you get to choose which one you do then?
