Free Challenges

Search between a Mysterious Hatch, a Giant Rock Lady, and a Precarious Flatbed

A battle star is hidden on the map and it’s your job to find it. The battle star is hidden between three objects. The mysterious hatch is the metallic door in the ground hanging around near the northern cabin in Wailing Woods. The Giant Rock Lady is a rock sculpture sitting on a hill west of the giant metal turtle. The precarious flatbed is hanging off the edge of the map.

Look for it on the hill west of the giant metal turtle and north of the hill with the rock lady. The battle star will appear over a small patch of dirt. Quadrant is I4!

Build Structures

Create 250 building segments of your own. This one will come easily as long as you just build. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, you can stick to building for defensive purposes when you’re getting shot at and you’ll eventually place down 250 segments. Easy!

Head into one of the limited timed modes where teams are larger and you don’t have to worry about enemy players.

Place a Cozy Campfire or a Launch Pad in different matches

Use a Cozy Campfire once. These items are of the rare variety so make sure you grab one if you see its blue hue! All you need to do is use it so don’t worry about healing yourself or other team members. Remember that it has to be placed on a flat surface.

Battle Pass Challenges

Deal damage to opponents while riding on a vehicle

Here’s a new one. Grab a friend and take the passenger seat in your favorite vehicle. These include the ATK, the Quadcrasher, and the X-4 Stormwing plane. This can be tough as other players tend to hear your vehicle storming by so you will likely not get the upper hand. The nice part is that only 100 damage is required to complete this challenge.

Stage 1: Visit Paradise Palms and Salty Springs in a single match

A multi-stage challenge that has you visiting two different named locations in a single match. You can expect a lot of players to be traveling within the fastest route between both locations. To avoid other players, try taking a longer and less direct route like moving along the furthest side of a hill. You don’t have to visit them in any order, just visit both at some point during a single match!

It’s also worth mentioning that flying over locations with a plane will get the job done. Here are the three stages you need to complete:

  • Stage 1: Visit Paradise Palms and Salty Springs in a single match
  • Stage 2: Visit Junk Junction and Loot Lake in a single match
  • Stage 3: Visit Haunted Hills and Wailing Woods in a single match

Search chests at Shifty Shafts or Lonely Lodge

Search chests in either Shifty Shafts or Lonely Lodge. 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.

Shifty Shafts has a lot of chests hidden behind wooden walls down in the mines. Listen for the chest chime or look for the golden glow! Lonely Lodge is home to several different cabins, many of which house chests. Don’t forget to look on top of the cliff area and be wary of the tower as it’s a popular landing spot.

Explosive Weapon Eliminations

Take down three opponents using explosive weapons. Take note, the Quad Launcher was vaulted in the most recent patch! Any of these weapons will do the trick:

  • Rocket Launcher
  • Grenade Launcher
  • Grenades
