  2. Bring the frame to the Gunsmith to obtain A Pleased Machine Gun frame (or A Mournful Gun).
  3. Buy an ammunition module from Xûr for one Strange Coin to obtain A Recalcitrant Gun (or A Pleased Machine Gun).
  4. Kill 500 enemies with a machine gun to obtain An Enthusiastic Gun.
    • Kills give 1 point, headshots and sprees give 3 points.
    • Kills with rocket launchers remove 5 points.
    • Points can be earned through both PvE and the Crucible.
  5. Bring the frame to the Gunsmith to obtain Super Good Advice.


  • The items named in the tasks varied, but the actual stages of the bounty were exactly the same regardless.
