Free Challenges

Visit all Pirate Camps

Pirates have taken over seven abandoned locations across the map. Visit all seven to complete this challenge. You’ll know it’s a pirate camp by flag with the white kraken along with the shoddy wooden infrastructure. Use our map and our list of locations to help you find them all:

  • To the west of the water at Lazy Lagoon.
  • At the southwest section of the base of the volcano.
  • The abandoned house southwest of Pleasant Park.
  • In the snow biome, northeast of the old Greasy Grove (frozen lake).
  • On top of the hill southwest of Salty Springs.
  • At the bridge connecting the desert biome to the normal map, south of Retail Row.
  • The abandoned house between Loot Lake and Dusty Divot.

Search Chests at Retail Row or Junk Junction

Search seven chests in either Retail Row or Junk Junction. Pick your preferred location and pop open all your chests there. Once you start a match, try landing at the location furthest from the battle bus path to minimize the amount of players you run into.

Junk Junction is on the edge of the map and thus will likely have fewer enemies. The downside is Retail Row features more buildings and therefore a greater number of chests. If your main focus is opening chests, try opting to go to Junk Junction.

Deal Damage with a Shotgun and an Explosive Weapon in a single match

Deal 300 damage using both a shotgun and explosive weapon in a single match. That means focus on getting either a Grenade Launcher or Rocket Launcher first, then worry about a shotgun. Explosive weapons are a lot more nowadays so you may want to find a vending machine that will sell you one. A list of weapons that will count for this challenge:

  • Pump Shotgun
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Rocket Launcher
  • Grenade Launcher

Battle Pass Challenges

Visit a giant face in the desert, the jungle, and the snow

There are three giant rock faces sticking out of the sides of mountains and hills. There is one in each major biome and you simply need to visit each one in no particular order. All three are located on hills near the edge of the map.

The giant face in the jungle can be found east of Sunny Steps.

The giant face in the snow biome can be found south of the industrial area with the dance club.

The giant face in the desert can be found at the tall mountain near the unnamed town east of the gas station.

Use a Volcano Vent in different matches

Volcano Vents are small holes in the ground that push out strong winds upward. Run over one to not only propell yourself in the air to glide to your next location, but to also add to this challenge. Your job is to use one in five different matches. You can find them scattered around the volcano. Use the same vent in different matches if you have to!

Get an elimination with a Shotgun, Assault Rifle, and Explosive Weapon

Get one elimination with a shotgun, one elimination with an assault rifle, and one elimination with an explosive weapon. A list of weapons that will count for this challenge:

  • Pump Shotgun
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Assault Rifle
  • Suppressed Assault Rifle
  • Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Heavy Assault Rifle
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Rocket Launcher
  • Grenade Launcher

Deal Damage to a vehicle driven by an opponent

Sounds easy enough! The challenge requires you to deal 200 damage to a vehicle while an enemy is driving it. Remember, you’re aiming for the vehicle, not the person driving!

Having trouble finding a vehicle to attack? Try waiting around popular vehicle spots like the Quadcrashers southwest of Salty Springs or the Driftboards northeast of Dusty Divot.
