Unlike previous trap challenges, this one wants you to place ten traps but getting an elimination is not required. With that said, your goal will be to find as many as you can instead of trying to place one in the smartest location.
Playing 50v50 gives you a chance to find lots of weapons without having to worry too much about running into an enemy on your team’s territory. The Solid Gold modes narrow down the amount of items that appear but traps still make an appearance.
If you do want to get a kill out of your trap, place traps on the ceiling near doors to get careless players who barge into houses and buildings. You can even place one down when an enemy is already standing there. Don’t put them in corners where people don’t normally go. Try putting down some bait, like a very good gun or a high rarity, then place the trap above it. This lures them in and aids you in killing them.
Open seven chests in Wailing Woods. This was once a horrendous challenge where only five chests in the entire region counted in your total. That is no longer the case as any chest within the wooded area will count. Here are some of the chest locations:
- At the base of each tree within the hedge maze.
- At the center shack in the hedge maze.
- Sitting near an RV stuck against a fallen tree to the east.
- Near the entrance to the woods to the north.
- Nearby a shack to the west.
- On top of the red RV to the west.
Wait for the Battle Bus to show a path that is far from Wailing Woods. The number of people landing there will decrease, giving you a better chance at securing chest. Check our interactive map for the locations – and help us add any we missed!
Take out four players using a shotgun. Surprisingly, this challenge is considered hard and is worth 10 Battle Stars. Shotguns can be very deadly and often take down opponents in one shot if used correctly. Aim for the head! Use any of the following weapons to add to this challenge:
This week’s secret battle star has you searching between three objects again and this one is pretty tough. If you found the three seats on your own, great job! The three oversized seats appear to reference the following objects:
- The big toilet statue in the parking lot of Flush Factory.
- the giant wooden chair at the small town north of Flush Factory.
- A very hard to miss “chair” made of shipping containers, wooden pallets, and boxes in the factory area.
The center of these three locations places you on top of the mountain north of Flush Factory where a lone toilet rests. Look for the battle star on the west side of the mountain. The quadrant is D9.
Find and use rifts from ten different rift spawn locations. Similar to the challenge from Week 5 this season, your goal is to use ten different rifts but they all must be from different rift spawn locations.
Here’s a map from Week 5 that shows each spawn location. Remember, you can only use a rift from each spawn location once.
These special anomalies were added at the start of Season 5 and entering one will warp you into a portal directly above you where you’ll be able to glide or dive to another location. This challenge simply wants you to use five of them.
Keep in mind, entering a rift will activate it and will only stay around for a few seconds longer. If you’re in a squad or a team, make sure everyone is together so you can all go through it at roughly the same time.
Deal 250 damage with the pickaxe. This one may seem hard at first, but you can easily rack up these points when you’re playing in duos or squads. Once you take down an enemy with surviving team members, whip out your pickaxe and take out the knocked down foe for all their 100 remaining health. Don’t waste your time fighting another player to the death at the start of the match, just knock them down first!
Much like the challenge from last week, this challenge tasks you with eliminating opponents in an ordered number of locations. After you complete the first stage, the challenge will update to the second stage. You do not have to complete all the stages in one match, they will carry over. There are three stages this week:
- Stage 1: Eliminate an opponent in Greasy Grove.
- Stage 2: Eliminate an opponent in Lonely Lodge.
- Stage 3: Eliminate an opponent in Fatal Fields.
