You’ll find spinning green tokens around the city that can be approached and activated to start a challenge. They can also be located on your map, or fast-traveled to by selecting Latest Challenge in your Log. There are 54 total in the base game, which become unlocked as you progress through the story. You can retry challenges whenever you want, including from the pause menu while in the middle of them.

Don’t spend too much time on difficult challenges very early on in the game, as many of them are made easier by better equipment and traversal moves that become available later on.

Bomb Delivery: Find the quickest route to plant a bomb on each of the beacons. Take some time to get a lay of the land and formulate your path.
Smash Stuff: The smashables appear on your minimap! Formulate an efficient route between them, and look out for explosive barrels to help you out. You'll need to smash every one to get gold.
Glider Challenge: Fly through updrafts to keep your power up (they appear on your mini map). You can dodge with RB/LB, and Invert Y in the options menu if you don’t like the flight controls.
Points Challenge: Find a path that minimizes your time not getting points. You’ll need every single one to get gold.
Traversal Challenge: You’re scored based on how much time is left. Remember to use RB to traverse faster. Ideally, you should never have to touch the ground.
Weapon Challenges: Watch the tutorials for weapons you are unfamiliar with, and play with style so your amps activate. These are also good opportunities to level up weapons.
Buck National Episodes: Focus on completing the objectives Buck gives you as fast as possible while maintaining your style. Having upgraded weapons and specific amps equipped helps.
Night Defenses: There is one of these for each district – again, equip amps specific for the situation and utilize deployable weapons and traps in chokepoints.
