"Beat Playground Games' Bucket List" Challenge requires you to complete 15 new challenges added as of the November Faulken Tires DLC pack. DLC is NOT REQUIRED to participate!
Here is the run down of the challenges:
Before we get started Zsoltee53 has pointed out that these 2 perks will be helpful for skill related challenges:
- Skill Legend - Skill Multiplier can go to 6 (Cost: 5 )
- Hang On - Skill Chains ends 1 second later than normal (Cost: 3)
#1 - Get to the Airstrip faster than we could in a Jaguar F-Type R - HARD
*Tip* I found it helpful to cut through the culvert instead of following the road that goes up towards the Saint-Martin Car Meet. Also cutting through the woods to enter the airport half way down the runway saves a lot of time. Just watch out for those pesky trees!
#2 - Take the Cherokee '14 through the forest to an ancient temple - HARD
*Tip* Most difficult part is keeping your speed up the hill. Make sure to stay far enough south of the temple as you cannot enter it from the side.
#3 - We hit 115 MPH in an Alfa Romeo 4c. Your turn. - MEDIUM
#4 - Throw a Ford Mustang '15 around the docks - HARD
*Tip* Remember to take advantage of Air Skills and Wreckage/Sideswipe Skills.
#5 - Go faster and get dirtier than we did in a Subaru Legacy RS - HARD
*Tip* If need be head a little bit in the wrong direction once you get onto the dirt road to give yourself a little bit of run up. Not scrubbing off speed in the few curves is easier said than done.
#6 - Outskill us on the golf course in a '14 Super Sport - HARD
*Tip* I struggled the most with this challenge. Wreckage/Sideswipe Skills really came in handy with this one.
#7 - Tame a Jalpa during a storm - MEDIUM
#8 - Cruise in elegance through Nice in a Ferrari 250 TR - MEDIUM
*Tip* You can save some time ignoring the GPS and turning right out of the house instead of busting through the fence and having to go around the block.
#9 - Hit the Siteron switchback at 65 MPH in a BMW M4 2014 - HARD
*Tip* This one took some finesse. I found it easier to enter the corners with less top speed and more control.
SpectralSprintr has made a video guide and described his setup for those struggling to complete this challenge:
This challenge is easier to complete with STM, ABS, TCS turned on in the difficulty settings if you've turned them off.
If the speed drops below 60mph after the first turn, then rewind because you won't make it. On the second turn, brake late and turn sharply.
#10 - We hit 200 MPH in a Pagani Huayra. Can you? - HARD
*Tip* Get in the gas and go all out. Try to make the corners as smooth as possible and hit that last straight hard. I barely got 200 MPH on this one.
#11 - Speed through Nice at 100 MPH in a G-SHOCK 370Z '10 - HARD
*Tip* Same as #9 above. I took both corners pretty wide and left the second turn in 3rd gear to get my speed back up as quickly as possible.
#12 - Take a night drive in the timeless Maserati 300 S - MEDIUM
#13 - Improvise a route to Castelletto in a Rally Fighter - HARD
*Tip* Miss the trees and aim for your road. Make sure you stay enough to the left as the road goes down to the coast with no access from the sides.
#14 - Get sideways in a BMW E92 M3 - MEDIUM
#15 - Skill down the coast better than we could in a BMW E28 M5
Best of luck! Should be more than obtainable in one or two sittings.
