All of the information in this guide is correct as of Season 15, Season of the Lost. I have finished my time with Destiny 2. If there are any changes to this achievement in a future update it will be up to someone else to write the guide.

With the Forsaken update what was considered "Challenges" were changed to "Bounties" and no longer work for this achievement.

*Update*
Challenges have changed once again with the Beyond Light update. I logged in and my character was at 1100 light level.

There are several weekly challenges that you can complete each week. There are weekly challenges for doing bounties for NPCs in the Tower. There are also weekly challenges for doing Crucible, Gambit, Strikes and Nightfall Strikes, and dungeons. You will know there is a weekly challenge when there is a gold star by the option on the Destinations tab.

When you highlight the NPC on the Tower map in the directory it will show the gold "weekly challenge" under their description. Go to that NPC and you will be able to purchase 4 bounties that have specific requirements with your glimmer. The bounties only last one day after purchasing them.

The NPCs I was able to find in the Tower were

Zavala (strike bounties)
Banshee-44 (gun bounties for various weapons
Lord Shaxx (crucible bounties)
The Drifter (Gambit bounties)
Suraya Hawthorne (clan bounties - mainly for raids)

You can purchase a 5th bounty from the NPCs for more glimmer than the normal ones that gives a random requirement.

Just doing what the bounties requires does not automatically complete it. To claim the bounty reward you just open the directory and go to the Quests tab. From there all the bounties you have aquiried will be on the right side of the screen. The ones you have completed will be at the top. Click on them to claim the rewards and have them count for the weekly challenge.

For the playlist items you only need to do however many matches it requires. Generally Gambit and Crucible want 3 matches each. Nightfall Strikes have percentage bar, where harder Nightfall Strikes fill the bar faster. Once you have completed the required number of matches the weekly challenge automatically completes.
DixxxxxonMan, I've been doing all the "daily" and weekly challenges every week for at least 6 weeks now. Has anybody unlocked this since they changed to this format? I swear I've done way over 30 by now. I really wish the progress was tracked on this one.

Legendary J ManWhile I have not gotten it yet I can confirm that while playing with some friends after the change they completed one challenge and got the achievement. So they had done 29 challenges from the old way and then did one the new way and they stacked. Granted that was like 3 months ago so I can't say for anything too recently.

DixxxxxonWell, you’ve given me hope at least :)
Posted by Dixxxxxon on 14 Mar 19 at 21:35
MrFunkoPop996Could you attach an example of how they look as I see nothing. Thank you.

Wyyvern^ Hover over the blue-icon vendors in The Tower, that's where they all are for me.

So can you really only get a maximum of four challenges a week? Ridiculous achievement now, not worth going for.
Posted by Wyyvern on 02 Oct 19 at 19:35
TheAaronLadI finally figured this shit out, you can get a max of 6-8 per week but I'm unsure of what dailies count. at a point you unlock challenges for planets (atm I only have the gold icon for EDZ) and the playlists (vanguard, gambit and crucible)
Posted by TheAaronLad on 04 Oct 19 at 20:59
RedDevil9487Yeah I can see the 3 weekly challenges at the tower for completing 8 bounties for each one. I don't have one showing st the EDZ however.
Posted by RedDevil9487 on 11 Oct 19 at 14:05
TheAaronLadit's on uh the planet to the right now the gold icons indicate challenges you can do 10 a week. possibly more if you have a clan/good fireteam to break the 100k score on the nightfall I don't think any daily stuff counts, if it did I'd have the achievement by now, looks like I have a week left after I do this week (maybe another week)

SoundgoodizerJust a tip if you feel like you have completed 30 but haven't unlocked the achievement, go to Settings > Log Out > Switch Profile then sign in again and pick your character again, this often forces achievements in this game to pop and is generally a good practice for a lot of them in the game
Posted by Soundgoodizer on 13 Nov 19 at 07:21
RedDevil9487Aw man, I've now done 32 challenges and counting and this achievement won't unlock for me. I've tried all the usual tips about switching profile etc.

Anyone unlocked this since the shadowkeep and new light update?
Posted by RedDevil9487 on 18 Nov 19 at 22:35
TheAaronLadI unlocked it 2 weeks after I posted my comment. are you sure you're doing the right stuff?
Posted by TheAaronLad on 19 Nov 19 at 02:21
RedDevil9487Pretty sure I'm doing it correct. Been doing the 8 bounties for zavala, the drifter and banshee. The 5 nightfalls, weekly flashpoint, clan bounties and completing 3 gambit matches.

Always comes up with challenge completed at bottom of screen and made sure I'm collecting the rewards as well.

Unless 1 or more of those challenges don't count toward the achievement, then I can't see why it hasn't unlocked yet. I've been tracking them and definitely done 32 in total. Guess I'll have to keep grinding it out and hope it unlocks soon.
Posted by RedDevil9487 on 19 Nov 19 at 20:41
TheAaronLadyou should do the crucible stuff too, there's 2 you can do just by playing regular and the rotator matches.
Posted by TheAaronLad on 19 Nov 19 at 22:21
RedDevil9487Yeah I was going to do some crucible soon anyway as need to for a couple of the exotic quests I've just started.
Posted by RedDevil9487 on 19 Nov 19 at 22:34
RedDevil9487Finally! After doing the 2 crucible challenges last night, the achievement has unlocked 😀
Posted by RedDevil9487 on 24 Nov 19 at 08:55
Le MLG RamenI still have no idea, y'all is there a video to show what they are and how to get em
Posted by Le MLG Ramen on 24 Mar 20 at 22:54
TheAaronLadit's the gold icon stuff.
Posted by TheAaronLad on 25 Mar 20 at 00:12
MrFunkoPop996I must of done well over 30 of these now. I have done the trick to swap char and accounts and still not popped. This is dragging a little haha.
Posted by MrFunkoPop996 on 06 May 20 at 16:20
TheAaronLadI had to do roughly 35 for it to pop it seems some stuff doesn't count.
Posted by TheAaronLad on 06 May 20 at 16:25
MrFunkoPop996I am now on 40 with no achievement. Sad times.
Posted by MrFunkoPop996 on 16 May 20 at 12:27
zeldafanjtlIs there somewhere in-game to view how many challenges you've completed?
Posted by zeldafanjtl on 19 Jun 20 at 07:17
EthigySo the weekly challenges that are in blue don’t count for this? Most of them seem to be completing X amount of specific bounties. Sadly there are only two gold ones currently and I can’t do either if them.

RiodeJaneiroRJThis achievement deserves the symbol of coffee, it takes a long time to unlock it.
Posted by RiodeJaneiroRJ on 03 Oct 20 at 16:26
TheAaronLadit takes like maybe 2 hours a week and now the game is on game pass with all DLC it takes less time to unlock. coffee flags are for 20 hour+ achievements.
Posted by TheAaronLad on 03 Oct 20 at 23:53
RiodeJaneiroRJI did exactly the same thing as the "Soundgoodizer" did: leave my profile and open another profile. Then I left the other profile and had mine open again. And there: my achievement has been unlocked! Finally, by my count, there were already at least 36 challenges completed. This achievement is buggy!
Posted by RiodeJaneiroRJ on 29 Oct 20 at 11:54
Danny BizzFYI from what I can tell, most of the weekly challenges no longer appear until you reach light level 1200. You can still do the weeklies for bounties that you redeem at the tower (shax, Zavala, Gunsmith, Gambit, clan XP), but the ones for actually playing in Crucible, Gambit and Strikes won’t show until you reach Light 1200 (excluding artifact).

XJCreek87Is there somewhere to see how many Challenges you've already completed, or is everyone just counting them themselves?
Posted by XJCreek87 on 24 Dec 20 at 22:36
Legendary J ManAs far as I can tell there is not any tracking for the challenges. You just gotta keep doing them until the achievement unlocks.
Posted by Legendary J Man on 08 Jun at 19:40
mrbellekDo the bounties for NPCs on other planets count? I.e. Spider (Tangled Shores), Devrim Kay (EDZ), Petra (Dreaming City), Eris (Moon) etc
Posted by mrbellek on 26 Jul at 08:39
TheAaronLadnot unless there's a gold circle with a star indicating that doing activities on the planet is the weekly planet challenge.

challenges and bounties are not the same.
Posted by TheAaronLad on 26 Jul at 16:49
mrbellekI just unlocked this, and haven't done 30 bounty challenges (for completing 8 bounties for npc"s) by far. This must mean that whatever is labelled a challenge with the gold star circle, counts towards this.
Posted by mrbellek on 03 Aug at 20:54
Legendary J ManI updated the guide again adding in the part about the weekly challenges for Gambit, Crucible, and Strikes.
Posted by Legendary J Man on 05 Aug at 07:14
cRPGeezusIs there a way to track how many have been completed?
Posted by cRPGeezus on 14 Sep at 11:51
zeldafanjtl@cRPGeezus there is not.
