    This guide will focus on more of the tougher challenge because most of these challenges will come with ease and with progression through the game, I reccomend before moving on to the next area you have the vehicle specific ones for the area you are in done or nearly done before moving on.

    IMPORTANT: Read the comments, there is some amazing help near the bottom, I will put a few comments in the guide but it would become too clustered if I put them all.

    IMPORTANT: STICK IT TO YA CHALLENGE
    (Note - This is said to be missable or really hard to get if you have completed the game and everything on the map, I suggest when you find a convoy you grind this challenge out immediately)

    TIPS

    Day Camel Challenge (How many times it takes)
    For "10 day camel", the canteen holds 500 units of water. You have to fill it 60 times.

    Fighting Multiple Enemies
    I've found a way to never miss a counter. It will make you lose your combo, but will help a lot to defeat a lot of guys straight without getting hit. It's quite simple: just keep mashing cn_X  + cn_Y  (punch + counter) all the way. You'll lose you combo sequence after a few hits, but you'll never miss a counter, be careful about the red alert attacks, though. They can't be avoided with a counter and will make you lose your sequence if you don't dodge.

    Obtaining Vehicles
    Every vehicle can be found by doing the death races, the bio of each vehicle tells you where it is as well. Just complete the race and it's yours, job done. You can even farm challenges that require destroying a certain vehicle or faction by selecting it from a stronghold, drive out, then summon your magnum opus and blow the shit out of it.

    Storm Challenges
    This is for any storm related challenges and this is the easiest way to grind them out, storm challenges can be completed by driving another vehicle into the big nothing and destroying it with the magnum opus, This is much better then obviously waiting for an actual storm to happen since they are random.

    Gut Shots (How to do them)
    Gut shots are performed by holding the "fire weapon" button when you're right in the enemy's face. I believe this is the "B" button by default.

    RULE THE DAY, TIRE POPPER, POINT AND SHOOT
    This is a really easy way to unlock all these challenges:


    FOUND MY RHYTHM
    Found a really good spot for the annoying "Found my rhythm" 20-hit combo chain - In the Gutgash wasteland mission, Ironclad Faith, you enter the large tunnels in your car to get to the subway. Once you pass a few traps, arrive at the subway tracks & Max comments on it, drop down into the area & quickly pry open a container but be prepared for a charger enemy inside the container & another 4 regular guys will appear too. Dodge the charger attack & just use your light cn_Xattack on the others whilst parrying where necessary so as not to kill them too quickly & if you do it right once you've killed the last charger guy, you should be at 20-22 hits. If you fail just die or quit reload & you're back at the entrance to the tunnels.

    STRANGERS ON A TRAIN CHALLENGE
    Strangers on a Train is easy if you can get an unoccupied enemy vehicle. Get up side by side with one, turn the wheels away from the other car, then hold down "LT" By the time your car pops loose, you'll get the challenge.

    PLEASE DRIVE FASTER CHALLENGE
    http://postimg.org/image/95sjv26hj/
    This is where you drive the 1.9miles with the righteous spike archangel challenge boosting over the sand patches starting from the dunes.

    Or

    Try this video to get it:


    THE ONE PERCENT CHALLENGE (Accumulate 45000 scrap)
    Go up to a project in a stronghold and it'll say "track on map" once you do this the map will pop up and show you all the locations for that project, they're usually in a camp or scavenging location.
    For scrap crew you automatically get the scrap from every scarecrow/vehichle you destroy in that strongholds terrirty instead of having to get out your vehichle.

    RATTLING YOUR DRAGS CHALLENGE
    Following this really short video
    ... is a super easy way to get Rattling Your Dags (Fill the Fury meter in 10 seconds or less).

    UNSTOPABLE CHALLENGE
    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Kv1dJfes2Ew
    This is a good location for grinding out the kills if you have done everything in the map, if you haven't then I reccomend when you goto a looting spot there will be like 4 enemies and you can kill them and goto another spot, this challenge is accumulative and can be done across 5 fights long as you don't get hit.

    AS VICIOUS AS A BANDICOOT CHALLENGE
    http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=CHkF-5SE0VI
    Here is good video showing a quick and easy location to farm the kills if you need them.

    BUG EYE CRUSH CHALLENGE
    This video
    shows a super easy way to get Bug Eye Crush, and this camp can also be used for "Throw another on the Barbie" (Defeat 5 vehicles using the flame pipe from a Fire Raider, Flamergamer or Charbone) and State of Efficiency (Defeat 2 vehicles within 5 seconds of each other while driving the 'Kill Box" Archangel, 5 times). If doing this for the last two, just use the two parked buzzard vehicles. Then drive away until the location is removed from the minimap (the yellow 'dot') and then drive back. The vehicles will respawn. Rinse and repeat.

    STICK IT TO YA CHALLENGE
    (Note - This is said to be missable or really hard to get if you have completed the game and everything on the map, I suggest when you find a convoy you grind this challenge out immediately)
    The way i got this was by using enemy convoys, usually a enemy truck with 3 - 4 guys in the back will try to jump on your car. If you have all the spikes equipped they'll get killed, you can then simply fast travel to your stronghold and then drive back the enemies will respawn.

    If you clear everything out on the map then please use the soloution below this.

    FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE CLEAR THE MAP
    Go to the Parch Moon area of the map and wait for night time. Buzzard boarder vehicles seem to have a higher chance of spawning under these conditions. That's the general consensus across multiple forum for the game and it definitely worked for me.

    IN YOUR DREAMS CHALLENGE
    Easy way to get this complete is to goto the death race called Heat Haze and use the car CarneWagon, after you win the race and unlock the car simply drive out the stronghold and call the magnum opus and destroy it using the thunderpoon and simply rince and repeat.

    EverStoned77Well since you don't have the game on your gamertag on neither Xbl or TA it's hard to see what's gone wrong but yeah you could've been the one to find a glitch but I'd keep trying especially if you're down to the last achievement cause I had to look really hard on both the internet & in-game to get it but I did make sure to finish this BEFORE the story since some locations are hard to get back to afterwards though as far I know not impossible but you should only have 1 that doesn't show on the map so yeah maybe it have glitched for you IDK 🤔

    I ASK NO ONEI don't see the Furious Flurry 25 hit combo challenge listed here.

    Mr GranstaffAll went well on my end. There was a tricky scavenging point to get if you missed it the first time, however. I'll try to dig up a video to showcase it -- helped me out tremendously. It had to do with the sand dunes area -- can't remember the name offhand.

    I'm going to start by saying that the standing solution is pretty good but it lacks necessary information about e.g. the stuff you have to concern yourself the most about before cleaning up too much of the map.

    It is important to note that none of the challenges are missable, but some of them become a lot harder post-completion. Some challenges are also glitchy. I personally had one insignia glitch at the very end of my 60 hours of playtime and I couldn't complete "Writing on the wall" or "Death on your doorstep", so I got screwed out of the achievement at the time. Others seem to have the most problems with scavenging locations being stuck on 190/191. If something glitches on you then there's nothing you can do but start the campaign over, because the developers have yet to release a patch addressing these problems.

    As an aside, I finally managed to get this achievement almost six months after my original playthrough. The game had an update and I pored over all of the camps on the map looking for missing collectibles, noticing that The Edge (one of the camps closest to Chum's Hideout) all of the sudden was missing one scrap and one insignia. It may be worth booting the game and seeing if you got an update as well, and if so then carefully look at your map for an uncompleted location. It could save you an entire playthrough.

    Everything listed in the "Top priority" spoiler is stuff you should get done as soon as you can. Everything else will come in the course of completing the game's other achievements and participating in The Sandbox Grind by visiting/cleaning up every location on the map.

    Turned on my XO today and gained 1500 scrap from Scrap Crews, unlocking 'A Penny Saved'.

    I guess they fixed the WBPlay servers?

    Mr GranstaffI think so because I just noticed the partially discontinued flag was removed. Unless it was removed by accident.

    KJer25Not quite sure why this isn’t the #1 guide. Much
    more informative than the current top guide.
