Challenges are optional objectives that reward players with bonus XP, Burn Cards, and unlocks for weapons. Each individual challenge has five tiers of difficulty, with each tier requiring players to perform a specific number of actions.
For example, a Tier I challenge may require 10 Pilot kills with the Smart Pistol MK5, while Tier II of the same challenge will require 25 Pilot kills with the Smart Pistol MK5. Each Challenge will become progressively harder, but the rewards will increase with each tier level.
“ Tip: Complete weapon-based challenges to unlock new attachments and upgrades. ”
Rewards are given out for the completion of each tier. All challenges can be viewed from the Lobby screen and are divided into 11 major categories. Many challenges are earned naturally through gameplay, but others may require players to perform a unique action to complete.
Challenges will also play a role into Regeneration. As players earn Generation 2 status, they will notice that in order to progress to Generation 3, they will be required to complete specific Challenges.
“ Tip: Identifying the specific Challenges for each Regeneration is key! Collect and utilize specific Burn Cards to help you on your path to completing Challenges and becoming a Generation 10 Pilot. ”
For example, a Generation 2 Pilot will need to reach level 50 and complete the “EVA-8 Shotgun: If It Moves” challenge, the “EVA-8 Shotgun: Top Gun” challenge, the “40mm Cannon: If It Moves” challenge, and the “40mm Cannon: Titan Killer” challenge to become Generation 3.
