How Wanted Bounties in Destiny 2 work
Wanted Bounties are Pursuits you can collect from Spider, the vendor of The Tangled Shore.
First, they must be purchased with Ghost Fragments; some are a single Fragment, while others cost a handful. Some Wanted Bounties are also gated by your level, so if you're just starting out playing Forsaken, you might have to play onwards before they unlock.
Each Wanted Bounty points you in the direction of an escaped prisoner, who have fled across the solar system. Each one will tell you where they are - whether it's The Pit or Excavation Site XII.
Almost all of these are in Lost Sector locations, with the respective prisoner replacing the end-boss of each area.
As soon as the prisoner is defeated, the Wanted Bounty is complete - but make sure you also open the cache at the end to get a little extra loot. You then had to manually redeem the Wanted Bounty.
Not all Wanted Bounties are tied to Lost Sectors - the more expensive Wanted Bounties have different requirements, while the final one on the list is actually a challenging Adventure which rewards you with lucrative Powerful Gear.
Most Wanted Bounties are tied to the current week's Flashpoint location, and change every weekly reset - so make sure you complete as many as you need before the list changes. The locations are as follows:
Drained Captain Wanted Bounty location
Location: Whispered Falls, Outskirts (EDZ)
Cost: 1 Ghost Fragment
Location: Head to Outskirts, and then the location on the map in the screenshot, you should see the Lost Sector symbol on a wooden plank at the bottom of a small hill.

You'll encounter Consul Partisan as part of the Cryo-Pod Public Event in Soriks' Cut.

Zerz, The Unstoppable Weight Wanted Bounty location
Location: Pathfinder's Crash (Firebase Hades, EDZ)

To find this Lost Sector, enter Firebase Hades from the direction of Winding Cove, and follow the edge of the map to the right. You'll find the symbol painted next to a Patrols quest banner.
Dust-Choked Thrag Wanted Bounty location
Location: Excavation Site XII, Firebase Hades, EDZ
Location: To find the symbol for this Lost Sector, drive/run to the entrance to Firebase Hades from the direction of The Gulch, turn left and follow the edge of the map to your right. Now up up a small hill and look for the symbol to your left.
Mazan, Lost Captain Wanted Bounty location
Location: Widow's Walk, Trostland (EDZ)

With the front of the church directly in front of you, head down the street to its left and you'll find the symbol below outside a shop.
Karugul Wanted Bounty location
Location: Methane Flush, Siren's Watch (Titan)
Cost: 2 Ghost Fragments
From the Siren's Watch spawn point (the big platform), turn left so you're facing the rest of this sub-area from above.
Jump down and head towards a small building with a solar array on top. Go down the stairs on the roof, drop down one level and the symbol will be on a wall.
Devourer Darg Wanted Bounty location
Location: Skydock IV, Sunken Isles, EDZ
Finding this Lost Sector can be really tricky, so instead of pointing you towards the symbol (which is already on your map), we're going to tell you how to find the entrance.
Head to the middle of the Cabal cruiser and drop down to either side. You should see an orange-lit road leading underneath it (see screenshot). From either direction, you should see a group of Cabal walking around on a raised platform.
Take these foes out (they're mainly Phalanx and Legionnaires, then head for the open doorway behind them. This is actually a shaft, so drop down, then turn left. Go through the doorway, then the second, then take another left. Welcome to Skydock IV.
Subterranean Mind Wanted Bounty location
Location: Pariah's Refuge, Mercury
Cost: 3 Ghost Fragments
The sole Mercury Lost Sector can be found on the southern edge of the area. If you are facing south at the portal to the Infinite Forest, turn left, and follow the cliff round until the entrance appears.

Silent Fang Wanted Bounty location
Silent Fang is an Adventure that appears on the EDZ. It's a 540 recommended activity, so make sure you are levelled up as much as possible before taking it on, or have a fire team.
Here's a video by Ninja Pups on how to beat it:

How to get Lord of Wolves in Destiny 2
Lord of Wolves is an Exotic Shotgun added as part of the Forsaken expansion. Like other certain Exotic weapons, it's not part of the regular pool of Exotics you can get from activity rewards or opening Engrams.
Instead, Lord of Wolves is found by completing Wanted Bounties. Your chances are low, but keep handing them in, and it should drop eventually.
It has some unique perks - Shrapnel Launcher and Release the Wolves - which is detailed by Arekkz in the video above.
