It will be in one of these two areas. Fortunately, they’re right next to each other, so the search shouldn’t take too long. Don’t worry, you can’t miss it; it’s a huge, black crate, likely guarded by a high-value enemy. Also, you have to collect 25 Compound Ether, which you’ll get by mowing down Fallen enemies. Simple stuff.

The next step is called Sniper Rifle Alpha Frame. It will require you to score 25 Precision kills with Sniper Rifles, and also take down five Powerful Enemies. If you’re good enough, you might just be able to kill two birds with one stone here. It’s an absolute chore, but what can you do? Then, there’s the Sniper Rifle Beta Frame quest step. This time around, you’ll have to score ten multikills with Sniper Rifles. It’s a tough challenge, but you can pull it off with some practice.

The final step is going to require you to collect twenty Radiant Seeds. After that, you’ll have to go back to Ada, with the Radiant Matrix, to prepare the frame for forging. Off to the Gofannon Forge you go.
