PUBG Mobile Season 18 Week 1 Challenges – Tips and Tricks

New players are in for an easy season initiation.

PUBG Mobile Season 18 is upon us, and the new Hundred Rhythms themed skins and costumes make last season’s Runic Power getups look like an awkward fancy dress party. As always, the first week’s challenges of the new season are pretty straightforward, but expect things to heat up as we progress. Week 2 missions are already available for EZ Mission License holders, and they’re already marginally more difficult to complete.

Unlike the last season, there are no fundamental changes to how each week’s objectives play out. The “Friend Squad Bonus” is here to stay, and the extra RP rewards for accumulating playtime is back for a second round. We’re kicking things off with a classic road trip mission in the Elite Royale Pass. F2P folks, on the other hand, might be able to use all the vehicles rolling around as target practice to get the first mission done in record time. Welcome to PUBG Mobile Season 18. Here’s your Week 1 challenge guide.

Friend Squad Boost: Kill 30 enemies with M416 in Classic mode

The M416 is a pretty standard assault rifle. It’s a popular pick that you won’t struggle to come across. Once you have it, it’s a simple matter of getting some attachments to ensure it works for the situation you find yourself in. Grab a scope, a silencer, and whatever sort of attachments you need to get a good grip on the gun, and you shouldn’t have too much trouble scoring kills with it from medium/long distances. It’s a versatile piece of kit. Trust it.

Choice Mission

  1. Land on any rooftop in School (Erangel) 3 times in Classic mode.
    • School is a relatively easy landing spot, but it’s small size and popularity can make it a bit of a death trap.
  2. Land on any rooftop in Ha Tinh (Sanhok) 3 times in Classic mode.
    • Ha Tinh’s smooth rectangular shape certainly stands out on the map. If the plane passes right over it, expect traffic. Steer clear of the center to avoid loot and, by extension, other players.
  3. Land on any rooftop in Water Treatment (Miramar) 3 times in Classic mode.
    • Water Treatment can be a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to landing. It’s hard to scout a rooftop from the map, but the potential loot rewards are worth it.

Give 20 LIKEs to teammates

The start of a season is a great time to get kind of mission done and dusted. Assuming you’re not part of a clan, just queue for squad matches and LIKE every person you come across in the postgame results screen. The feature is designed so that you reward well-behaved players, but by incentivizing it in a royale pass, it’s not going to be taken seriously. Just get it over with.

Pick up Pistol in 20 matches in Classic mode

There’s very little reason for a mission like this to really exist. A smaller firearm can secure a kill when the stars align in a fight, but they’re easily glossed over when found on the floor. What that means, though, is that they’re incredibly easy to find. The only thing you need to do is remember to look at the ground from time to time. Heck, you’ll probably automatically pick one up without even noticing. Don’t worry about this one.

Travel more than 10,000m while operating any vehicle with teammates in it in Classic mode

It sounds as if Tencent has clarified this fairly common mission for the new season. Before, it was never really clear whether teammates had to be in the car, or whether it didn’t matter who was driving so long as it was a team effort. We’ve always assumed it to be this way, but it’s good that it’s been rephrased for clarity. Now, it’s exactly as it sounds. Squad up, get behind the wheel, and ferry your teammates around the map. Take it in turns behind the wheel to churn this one out fast.

Choice Mission

  1. Invite Friends to team up in Power Armor mode and complete 7 matches.
    • Power Armor mode is a blast. It’s like Runic Power meets The Terminator. If you haven’t already given it a shot, get involved. It’s a great excuse to show Livik some love, too.
  2. Complete 10 matches with Friends in Classic mode.
    • If you’re playing Classic for other missions, you might as well double up with this one. The higher completion count makes it sound like it’ll take more time, but it’ll likely take less when paired with other missions.
  3. Complete 10 matches with Friends in Team Arena.
    • Team Arena goes by in a flash. The queues can be lightning fast with friends, too. If you’re in a hurry, Team Arena is the best choice this week.

Deal a total of 750 damage with headshots in Classic mode

750 damage isn’t a terribly high amount: especially when you have a whole season to rack it up. Rather than specifically aim for headshots, it’s more reasonable to expect this to come about almost accidentally. Recoil at close range—like when storming an enemy house—can often result in headshots eventually securing the kill. In fact, you can see prime examples of it in Rolex’s EU Conqueror montages.

Use Energy Drink 30 times in Classic mode

Branded or not, PUBG Mobile‘s chuggable energy drinks are a staple of the game’s survival aspect. By finding and downing one or two mid-match, your energy levels spike, granting passive health regeneration over time. It’s the only way to fully heal yourself after a fight. Adrenaline shots and painkillers serve the same purpose, but energy drinks can be located far more reliably at vending machines, making this one a case of simply hitting up known PUBG Mobile vending machine locations.
