Season 6, week 1 challenge list


We always recommend to at least take a glance at a new set of challenges so you can make a mental note of what you need to do for the week. Many of the quests pertain to crafting, which you’ll likely do anyway, while others might be trickier.

Below is a list of week 1’s new challenges:

  • Hunt Wildlife
  • Craft Primal weapons using bones and makeshift weapons
  • Craft a Hunter’s Cloak
  • Talk to characters
  • Collect mechanical parts from vehicles, trailers, buses, or tractors
  • Craft mechanical weapons using mechanical parts and a makeshift weapon
  • Find golden artifacts near The Spire
  • Craft items

Since so many of them involve crafting, you’ll want to spend a lot of time gathering resources and experimenting with different combinations of materials. It’s not hard, but it is a new feature, so it’ll take a bit of time to get used to. You’ll want to familiarize yourself with the new resources like animal bones and mechanical parts, along with the weapons that spawn on the ground.

Here are guides on some of the harder challenges for week 1 of season 6.
