We recommend taking a look at the new challenges before starting them so you can plan your route accordingly.

  • Shakedown an IO guard (1)
  • Find a hidden bunker (1)
  • Find the crashed plane’s black box (1)
  • Deal damage while in water (200)
  • Emote at stone statues (1)
  • Ride the Steamy Stacks (1)
  • Deal damage to a Loot Shark (500)
  • Shakedown opponents (5/10/15/20/25)

As usual, many of the challenges are straightforward and self-explanatory, so we’ll only be covering the tougher ones in depth. During season 5, a lot of the challenges come in stages and must be completed before being able to pursue others. That remains the same for this week, so keep that in mind. In other words, you can’t jump into the challenge for finding a hidden bunker until you’ve finished the one for shaking down an IO guard.

Below are details on how to complete week 9’s tougher challenges.

Shakedown an IO guard

The hardest part about this challenge is finding an IO guard. In essence, you need to knock one down and then utilize the shakedown mechanic to get credit. The nice thing is that IO guards spawn in the same spot each game, so you can make a beeline directly for one of them to complete this challenge quickly. Check the link below for more details.
