Burnout Wiki

Freeburn Challenges are a part of Burnout Paradise's Freeburn Online Mode. During a multiplayer session, the host can select various predefined tasks from the game menu for the players to attempt. If all players successfully meet the objective of the Challenge, it is marked as complete in all players profiles.

While a Challenge is active, the score card in the top right corner of the screen shows the Challenge status for each player.

Challenge Types[]

Driver Challenges[]

Driver Challenges have individual objectives for each player - each driver must perform the same task such as Boost for a certain amount of time, or perform a specified total amount of Flat Spin degrees. When the player completes the objective a check mark appears beside their name in the score card. When all players have completed the objective or objectives, the Challenge is completed and their profiles are updated.

Team Challenges[]

Team Challenges have a group objective that the players must complete collectively. For example, Drift a specified total number of yards, or all meet at a particular point on the map at the same time. Each player's activity during the Challenge contributes to the total goal, and all players must contribute at least a minimum amount otherwise the Challenge is not complete even if the totals would otherwise be enough. During Team Challenges, the score card shows the contribution each player has made to the total goal, and when a player has reached their minimum contribution, a check mark appears beside their name.

List of Challenges[]

The set of available Challenges at any given time is determined by the number of players currently in the game, with 50 original challenges, 10 timed challenges, and 10 bike challenges, all of which are each for 2-8 players (10 challenges for 2 players, 10 challenges for 3 players, etc.). The addition of Big Surf Island (Paid Downloadable Content) bumped the total number of Freeburn Challenges up to 500.
