Land at Polar Peak
To complete this challenge you need to land at 5 different locations on the map.
Here’s the order they unlock:
- #1: Land at Polar Peak
- #2: Land at Fatal Fields
- #3: Land at Tomato Temple
- #4: Land at Lucky Landing
- #5: Land at Snobby Shores
Deal damage to opponents structures
This one’s pretty self explanatory and will see you dealing damage to any structures your opponent has created. We’d recommend heading into a hotly contested location and looking around for a fight which has broken out. Instead of shooting at enemies, focus on destroying anything they’ve built!
Suppressed Weapon eliminations
Root around for a suppressed weapon, get on the aggressive and secure those eliminations.
Your best bet would be the Suppressed Assault Rifle or Suppressed Pistol as they’re both strong enough to be used as a primary.
Search chests at Wailing Woods or Paradise Palms
For this challenge you need to find a total of seven chests split across either location. It’s best if you land in these areas constantly and root around for chests as soon as you hit the ground.
Stage 1: Dance on top of a Water Tower
In a similar vein to the “Land at X” challenge, you’ll need to find each of these locations and dance at them.
Here’s the order they unlock:
- #1: Dance on top of a Water Tower
- #2: Dance on top of a Ranger Tower
- #3: Dance on top of a Air Traffic Control Tower

Eliminate an opponent from closer than 5m away
To complete this challenge you’ll need to eliminate someone at close range. If you manage to get hold of a shotgun, get on the aggressive, chase someone down and blast them in the face.
Otherwise, focus on getting into close range whenever an opportunity presents itself. You’ll get there eventually!
