Free Challenges

Stage 1: Land at Polar Peak

Another multi-stage challenge that has you simply landing in a specific location. Take note that you must complete the match by either getting first place or dying normally. You cannot get the challenge and quit. The full list of locations:

  • Stage 1: Land at Polar Peak
  • Stage 2: Land at Fatal Fields
  • Stage 3: Land at Tomato Temple
  • Stage 4: Land at Loot Lake
  • Stage 5: Land at Snobby Shores

Suppressed weapon eliminations

This is a super easy challenge, get three kills with suppressed weapons. Since they’re on the quieter side of things, don’t be afraid to use these from a farther distance. These include the following:

  • Suppressed Pistol
  • Suppressed Assault Rifle

Deal damage to opponent’s structures

Deal 5,000 damage to any building structures made by the enemy. Chipping away at the enemy structures can help expose them to your attacks, but now it can also add to this challenge. Using a weapon with a high fire rate can help speed up this process. An SMG or the Minigun are both great at tearing down those walls. Don’t forget to use the new Boom Box weapon!

Battle Pass Challenges

Stage 1: Dance on top of a Water Tower

A multi-stage challenge where dancing at different locations moves you to the next step. Keep in mind you have to visit the areas in different matches and you need to either complete the match or die. The three stages are:

  • Stage 1: Dance on top of a Water Tower
  • Stage 2: Dance on top of a Ranger Tower
  • Stage 3: Dance on top of a Air Traffic Control Tower

The water tower is located in the commercial section of Retail Row while the ranger tower is the tall tower in Lonely Lodge. The Air Traffic Control Tower is situated next to the runway at Frosty Flights.

Search between a Giant Rock Man, a Crowned Tomato and an Encircled Tree

The giant rock man, a crowned tomato, and an encircled tree location are all in the north-west corner of the map – the Crowned Tomato giving you the clue that it’s near Tomato Temple.

The specific location you are looking for is just east of Tomato Temple – next to the wooden bridge in map quadrant H4, where the ‘E’ is at the end of Tomato Temple on the map:

If you get close to one of the westerly rocks, the Battle Star will show up.

Search Chests at Wailing Woods or Paradise Palms

Search chests in either Wailing Woods or Paradise Palms. 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.

Paradise Palms has a number of chests to check but you’re almost always guaranteed to run into someone there. Wailing Woods has chests that are more spread out in the cabins. Don’t forget to use the warp tunnels in the basement!

Eliminate an opponent from closer than 5m away

Take out two enemies from 5m away or closer. 5m is roughly the size of one building segment. Get yourself a shotgun and head into whatever LTM mode puts you in large teams where players get up close and personal. Players here are not as alert so it’ll be easier to sneak up on someone.
