EditSearch where the Stone Heads are looking
Apparently a battle token will appear where all six stone head moai statues are facing. We’ll have to wait until the challenges are official released, but for now we can see that the general location will point to Salty Springs.
Use our map above to get a general idea. The six stone head locations include:
- Southeast of Junk Junction.
- North of Tomato Town.
- West of Lonely Lodge.
- Northeast of Lucky Landing.
- Southeast of Shifty Shafts.
- North of Greasy Grove.
EditDeal Headshot Damage to opponents
Deal 5000 damage through headshots. Considering headshots typically double the damage, reaching 500 total damage shouldn’t take too long. Obviously, aim for the head to make it happen, but certain weapons could make this easier. Using shotguns when you’re up close can make it a lot less of a chore. Be above an enemy to increase your chances as the head hitbox will be on top of their body hitbox. While you’re sniping, take bullet drop into account and aim higher the further you are.
EditHarvest building resources with a pickaxe
Collect 3,000 materials from demolishing buildings and objects. You can get material from just about anything, but you’ll want to look out for specific objects as they give out a ton more material per hit.
For wood, stick to the trees. Wooden pallets give an incredible amount of wood and should always be harvested when spotted. RIP trees from Moisty. For brick, the larger stones you see outside often give you 50 brick. For metal, the cars and trucks are the way to go but they are also extremely noisy.
EditBattle Pass Challenges
EditComplete timed trials
This challenge asks you to complete five timed trials. While it’s not clear what exactly must be done to complete this challenge, we can assume that the newly revamped racetrack in the desert biome will be involved. In fact, you can already hop into an ATK and race through a time trial complete with a recorded time.
EditSearch Chests in Lonely Lodge
Open up seven chests in Lonely Lodge. No, they do not have to be opened in the same match. Lonely Lodge has a different landscape and it’s easy to miss some of the chests here. Take a look in these locations to better your chances!
- Second floor of cabin.
- On top of the cliff.
- In an alcove on the side of the cliff.
- At the top of the tower.
- In the attics of the small shacks.
- In the attic of the large cabin.

EditMinigun or Light Machine Gun Eliminations
Eliminate two players using the Minigun or the Light Machine Guns. In Solos, defeating an enemy with either weapon counts. In any mode with teams, you can knock down an enemy with any weapon but you ultimately have to finish them off with the required weapon.
EditEliminate opponents in Tilted Towers
Take down three opponents in Titled Towers. Good luck, brave soul. Titled Towers is always crowded and this challenge won’t make that change any time soon.
Shotguns are ideal here. There will be a lot of close combat where you’ll fight inside rooms, on the stairs, and between buildings. If you have an assault rifle, get to a roof and crack down on players trying to go from building to building. Careful for snipers!
You can also try to swing by a nearby area like Loot Lake or Shifty Shafts, or even the abandoned house to the west. Gather weapons and then infiltrate Titled Towers yourself after the chaos has died down.
