‘Destiny’: How To Complete ‘A Voice in the Wilderness’ Exotic Bounty To Obtain The Super Good Advice Exotic Machine Gun

There are many ways to obtain an Exotic weapon in Destiny. It can come as a random reward for completing a mission, Strike, or Crucible match or simply purchased from Xur and his weekly visits. Another way is through Exotic bounties. This is a guide to complete the “A Voice in the Wilderness” bounty to receive the Super Good Advice Exotic machine gun.

The tasks required to obtain Super Good Advice are the easiest of all the Exotic bounties. Here are the steps that you will need to take once you accept the “A Voice in the Wilderness” bounty.

  1. Find A Mournful Gun (or A Recalcitrant Gun) by opening loot caches on Mars.
  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.
  5. Bring the frame to the Gunsmith to obtain Super Good Advice.


  1. Pick your favorite area of Mars and do a chest loot run. My favorite is either The Barrens or The Buried City. Yours may differ.
  2. Xûr only shows up in the Tower between 5 a.m. ET Friday morning and 5 a.m. ET Sunday morning. Plan accordingly.
  3. To get the 500 enemy kills with a machine gun, fire up your favorite strike or story mission and go to town. Regular kills are worth one point while headshots and sprees are worth three points. Do not try to get any kills with rocket launchers while this part of the bounty is active. That takes away five points.

How Do I Get An Exotic Bounty?

Getting an Exotic bounty is random, so you are at the mercy of Destiny‘s RNG (random number generator) like so much else in the game. Completing regular Vanguard and Crucible bounties daily and turning them all in at once with Xander 99-40, the Bounty Tracker, seems to be the best shot though. This is simply because you are increasing your chances at receiving a bounty due to the number of tries. Turning them in one at a time works just as well though, aside from increasing your trips to the tower.

The Postmaster will also occasionally give out Exotic bounties. This can occur when you reach a new Vanguard, Crucible, or Faction level and go to the Postmaster to collect your reward.

The “An Unknown Patron” bounty for the Fate of All Fools scout rifle is not in the game yet. Until then, this guy is the only one in the world has one. When the bounty is officially available in the game it will be added to the list.
