October Rewards Quest Guide -
Play new games and earn points (+50) - Earn an achievement in a recently added game. Shrewd Sleuth - Dead Cells - Find your first secret zone. As soon as you spawn into the game, run left, jump up against the wall, then roll into the secret zone for the achievement. Source. Note, this will double count for the Earn points with Dead Cells quest.
Earn points with Dead Cells (+100) - Complete two achievements in Dead Cells. Shrewd Sleuth - Find your first secret zone. As soon as you spawn into the game, run left, jump up against the wall, then roll into the secret zone for the achievement. Source. Note, this will double count for the Play new games and earn points quest. Love the Serenity… - Reach the Promenade of the Condemned for the first time. When you spawn into the game in the Prison quarters, go through the door to the Promenade of the Condemned for this achievement. Source. Note, this will double count for the Play new games and earn points quest.
Earn points with Jump Force (+100) - Complete two achievements in Jump Force. Note this game has very few achievement guides on the internet so I did my best to find these achievements, but they might end up not in fact being the easiest or requiring additional steps. As I actually get these achievements, I’ll update here if any changes need to be made. Building an Army - Registered characters in all preset team slots. When you’re in the lobby, press the menu button, select Customize Battle/Battle Options, Register Team, Team 1, and then set a character for each slot. Then do the same for Teams 2 and 3. Source. This Party is Just Getting Started! - Used emotions 10 or more times. In the main lobby, press and hold RB, then use LS to select an emotion and release RB. This will trigger an emotion, and doing this 10 times should give you the achievement. Source.
Earn points with Shocktober (+50) - Complete any achievement in the Shocktober collection. Altered States - >observer_ - Overdose on synchronization pills. To do this, go through the beginning tutorial and the subsequent opening credits. When you enter the apartment building, use Y to open the PDA and X to take a pill. Repeat the process three times for the achievement. Source. Note, this will double count for the Play ID@Xbox to earn points quest.
Play ID@Xbox to earn points (+150) - Complete three achievements in any combination of ID@Xbox games. Altered States - >observer_ - Overdose on synchronization pills. To do this, go through the beginning tutorial and the subsequent opening credits. When you enter the apartment building, use Y to open the PDA and X to take a pill. Repeat the process three times for the achievement. Source. Note, this will double count for the Earn points with Shoctober quest. Don’t even get me started - Ruiner - Finish Prologue. Pretty self explanatory, just go through the prologue at the beginning of the game. Source. Note, if done on PC this will double count for the Play a game on PC and earn points quest. Gotta get pumped! - Ruiner - Do 1003 pushups. This is potentially annoying, but requires very little effort. To do a pushup, you just hold up on the D-pad, or X if you’re doing this on PC. The hard part of this achievement is that you have to do them all in one go. To do 1003 pushups, you’re gonna need to hold that button down for around 16-17 minutes. You could try taping or weighting the button down to make it easier. Also make sure your controller doesn’t fall asleep by periodically moving the right stick. Source. Note, if done on PC this will double count for the Play a game on PC and earn points quest.
Play a game on PC and earn points (+50) - Complete an achievement on PC. Don’t even get me started - Ruiner - Finish prologue. Pretty self explanatory, just go through the prologue at the beginning of the game. Source. Note, this will double count for the Play ID@Xbox to earn points quest.
Sign into the Xbox Game Pass mobile (+100) - Check the recently added games, sign into the mobile app on 4 different days, and download a game on mobile. Same as the last few months, they just added one more step to view recently added games.
Earn 10,000 points in 10 days (up to +10000) - To enter, earn 500 Gamerscore and claim 500 points. After that, every Gamerscore point will be matched, up to 10,000 points. This quest is active October 18-27. The current list of games available for this seems to be a combination of the games for the Play new games and earn points quest and some of the games from September’s Earn 10,000 points in 10 days quest. I’m hoping Microsoft will be adding to this list of games by the time the quest actually goes live. Here is the current list:
Dead Cells Metal Gear Solid HD Edition: 2 & 3 Creature in the Well Gonner - Blueberry Edition Devil May Cry 5 Stellaris: Console Edition Blair Witch Minecraft Lego city undercover Mortal Combat X Pro Evolution Soccer Halo: The Master Chief Collection
