Before we dive into the parkour challenges, I just want to say a few things. The first thing is this. Practice. Practice until you see the challenge in your sleep. Practice until you know every single turn, jump, ledge, every little detail about the challenge. Practice until you know you can do it without throwing your controller at the wall. Practice, practice, practice. I can't emphasize how important it is to practice each of these challenges. These challenges are meant to put your free running abilities to the ultimate test. I know I may be over exaggerating how hard these challenges are, but I'm not. Maybe I'm not a good player at time trials or what, but since I did these challenges a year ago, I had to spend almost half an hour for each challenge practicing before I had a run where I completed the challenge. These challenges will separate the men from the boys. And there are ten of them. So run for your life.
My first tip before we start is more of a condition of these parkour challenges. You cannot use your grappling hook. Tempting as it is, the challenge will fail as soon as you use it. These challenges are meant to put your running skills to the test, not to see how well you can use your grappling hook. If you could use your grappling hook, you could knock every challenge out in 30 seconds easy, but that's not the point. But now comes the tip part. Keep your grappling hook equipped and ready to use. Since you automatically fail the challenge the second you use the hook, this becomes quite handy. If you start having a bad run where you know you won't finish, just use the hook to fail, and you will be respawned back at the start of the challenge. This keeps you from having to wait until the time runs out to restart the challenge.
Next, make sure you do all these challenges at night. Take it from me, you don't want to do each of the challenges twice. Just push through it and get it done during the nighttime, even though volatiles could start chasing you. As stated earlier, nighttime lasts from 9pm until 7am. In order to speed up time, whenever morning starts again, go back to the nearest safe house and sleep in the sleeping bag. Once you wake up again, head back to the challenge you were working on. BUT BE WARNED! If you decide to do some during the day and some at night, there is no way to tell whether you did do it at night! For instance, you could do all 10 challenges, but only be 80% (8/10) done with doing all the challenges at night. If you don't remember which challenges you didn't do at night, I'm sad to say you might have to do them all again in order to find the ones you missed. So be sure both trackers show the same percentage every time you complete the challenge.
Finally, although each attempt on a challenge takes on average 2 minutes in real time, this lasts about 30 minutes in game time. If you start a challenge at 6:45am, there is no way you could make it to the finish before morning begins, so go ahead and just make your way back to the nearest safe house, and try again at 9pm.
Alright, let's begin. For the videos, I will be doing all of the challenges at daytime so you can see the path to take and the obstacles much easier.
The parkour challenges are split up in the two areas. 5 in the slums, 5 in old town. We will go through slums first.
SLUMS PARKOUR CHALLENGES
Here is a map with the location of the parkour challenges in the slums area. Each one is marked with a foot with speed markings coming from behind it. I marked each of the challenge locations with the blue waypoint in the game clip. I will show the location of the challenge at the beginning of each video.
Parkour Challenge 1- Tiptoeing to Gazi
Parkour Challenge 2- Twister
Parkour Challenge 3- Favela Fever
Parkour Challenge 4- First Assignment
Parkour Challenge 5- End of the Tunnel
OLD TOWN PARKOUR CHALLENGE
Here is a map with the location of the parkour challenges in the old town area. Each one is marked with a foot with speed markings coming from behind it. I marked each of the challenge locations with the blue waypoint in the game clip. I will show the location of the challenge at the beginning of each video. With the Not So Obvious parkour challenge, look at the point that I marked where there is no challenge. This challenge doesn't appear on the minimap until you locate it for the first time.
Parkour Challenge 6- Blue District Fever
Parkour Challenge 7- On The Edge
Parkour Challenge 8- Diagonal Run
Parkour Challenge 9- Not So Obvious (Does not appear on map until you find it)
Parkour Challenge 10
If you completed all the challenges, let me be the first to congratulate you. If you managed to do all of them at night, you will be rewarded with both these achievements.
The last achievement in this title update is to open 5 GRE chests while in dead zones (quarantine zones). If you followed exactly what I did during the story walkthrough, then you should have already unlocked this. If you didn't open any chests while completing the quarantine zones, then head back to the parking garage quarantine zone in Old Town. Here is a map with the location of the quarantine zone marked.
Once you have killed all the zombies in the quarantine zone, there are 5 chests that you can open, which will get you this achievement
Congratulations, you finally completed the title update! Now it's time to go to The Bozak Horde DLC!
