Earning this trophy is very time consuming.

There are six categories of challenges in the game. See each category below for more details.
- Wingsuit courses
- Chrash Bomb Challenges
- Races (land, air, sea)
- Destruction Frenzy
- Scapyard Scramble
- Shooting Ranges

Wingsuit courses
Wingsuit courses are probably the most difficult type of challenges. Most of them are not so difficult, if you have some expeience with the wingsuit. But a few of them are truly challenging to get all 5 gears.
- In general terms, the faster you fly the harder Rico is to controll. So I strongly recomend to unlock and use the "airbreak" mod and to deactivate the "auto landing" mod if unlocked. So always try to take out speed if you dont need it.
- To obtain 5 gears on the wingsuit courses, you will basically have to go for the "PERFECT" rating for every single ring by flying through the smaller red respective yellow combo rings. This will give you 2000 pts. bonus for each ring. It may be allowed, that you can have one or two close misses ("GREAT" rating worth 750 pts.). But try to aim for the "PERFECT" rating on every ring.
- Depending on the individual courses scoring goal, you also will need to obtain a certain amount of "close to ground" bonus points. Remember that you will need a certain falling speed near the ground or else you will crash. Also there is a high risk of hitting an object. When you clearly hear an "blowing wind" sound effect close to the ground, this is an acoustic feedback sound for this bonus.
- Remember that you are allowed and advised to use your grappling hook to gain speed if needed. Gain some extra speed by holding down cn_L2 when retracting your grapling hook with the respective mod unlocked and activated.

Crash Bomb Challenges
- This type of challenges are pretty easy to obtain. When your speed falls below a certain amount, you will get time substracted. But the time needed to complete this challenges is a major factor in the scoring result. If you avaoid falling down below the minimum speed margin, you might drive off-road for taking shortcuts on your way to the goal.

- When you are close to the goal, try to aim at the center of the enemy vehicles for maximum amount of destruction.

- Bail out the vehicle as late as possible to avoid your vehicle exploding before it hits the target.

- There are 3 types of races: land, air, sea.

- I strongly recommend to unlock and activate the "speed booster" mods of each category while turning off the "jump" mods.

- Normally you have a default vehicle for each event, but you can always change it with any other allowed vehicle you have unlocked in the rebel drop by pressing cn_S in the challenge overview screen.

- Any other vehicle nearby can be entered before you go through the first checkpoint

- Land races: The "Mugello Farina Duo" F-1 car is basically the best choice, unbeatable for every race. So, unlock it as early as possible. It is the preset car for the "City Sprint" racing event near the city "Citate diRavello" (Regno Region on Insula Striate) and can be brought to the garage after finishing this race. It also can be found on a ramp/trailer on the road leading to Manaea (Baia region).

- Sea races: The "Pescada SS" boat is the preset for basically every sea race. If not, pick it anyway. The times to beat for some of this races are impossible to beat without both turbo bost mods

- Air races. The "Urga Acrobat" plane is the preset for most plane races. I would recomend using a jet though. They are fast (d'uh! ;) ) but pretty smooth to operate. If you don't have unlocked one already, you can find one at the air strip in the rebel hideout cave in the Cuda region. Just land it near the starting point of any given air race challenge.
If you have to use a helicopter, I recomend the "CS Navajo". The air race near "Citate di Ravello" requires a REALLY FAST helicopter, so the "CS Mstitel" is needed. This one can be unlocked after beating the last story mission.

Destruction Frenzy
Those challenges can be based on either using a certain vehicle or a heavy weapon.

- Sometimes you are allowed to select another similar vehicle or weapon if you might have already unlocked it. Also before you start your frenzy run you are free to enter any vehicle you can find within the area of the challenge.

- Most important rule: Before you start, check out the area and carefully plan your route. Sometimes you have to set-up things before you even start. But this set-up may take much more time than the actual frenzy run. Also you can place your teters on any object.

- Some objects can be partitially damaged before you even start your run. Remember that the countdown only starts when the first object is COMPLETELY destroyed.

- The key to success is keeping the score mutliplicator counter at the maximum of 8x. To keep it high while not shooting at actual chaos objects you can also blow up other vehicles within your reach. Also if possible, try to create chain reactions to safe valuable seconds.

- Also be aware that even when you ran out of time, as long as your point multiplicator is active you still can continue your frenzy run.

Scapyard Scramble
This is basically the easiest kind of challenges.
- The Countdown will not start before you enter the scrapyard area.
- Sometimes you can prepare little chunks of bavarium pieces before the countdown starts using your tether.
- Before you start your actual run, drive through the areas as plan effective routes
- Drive slow and careful.
- Don't evenn bother dealing with enemies, they are just distracting you but are no actual threat
- You can easily collect large chunks of bavarium pieces befor delivering it to the collecting pit
- the larger the chunks you drop at the pit the more additional time you get as bonus. Pieces of pure bavarium earns you a higher bonus.
- Don't force on collecting only pure bavarium pieces. Instead create mixed chunks for best results.

Shooting Ranges
Tricky, but not too complicated.
- Afair there are 4 ranges spread across medici. Three in Rebel hideouts, one after you liberated the capital city "Citate di Ravello". These are: Handgun, revolver, shotgun, machine gun
- Simmillar to the "Destruction Frenzy" the key to success is keeping the point multiplicator up.
It's actived when hitting bulls eye but reset if you don't. There is no permanent multiplicator in the shotgun range, instead it increases depending on how many targets you hit at once with one shot.
- It's much easier if you have unlocked and activated the "Free Aim" mod (pressing cn_RS)
- It can be helpful to move around a little bit from time to time, not always standing on the same spot all the time.
- Memorize the rotation cycle of the targets. They are always the same. Also don't forget you need to reload from time to time.
