Dauntless: here are your Hunt Pass challenges for Season 5 Week 2

Slayers looking to bag some extra Dauntless swag will be glad to hear that the Hunt Pass Week 2 challenges are now live.

These optional side tasks encourage you to battle the game’s Behemoths in a number of different ways, forcing you to change up your weapons, playstyle, and tactics.


This week’s challenges are fairly straightforward though, as always, they’ll take a little bit of grinding. You’ll want to actively dodge through Behemoth attacks while making sure your Slayer is equipped with anything other than the Sword or Chain Blades as these have no associated challenges this week.

Dauntless Season 5 Week 2 Hunt Pass challenges

Here’s a full rundown:

  • Shocking Display – Slay 10 Behemoths using Shock weapons
  • No Surrender – Slay 10 Behemoths using Repeaters or Axes
  • Master of Evasion – Dodge through 125 attacks
  • Behemoth’s Bane – Slay 10 Behemoths using Hammers or War Pikes

Completing any of these challenges will net you a tidy 150 Heartseekers, pushing you towards the next rank in your Hunt Pass.

As a free-to-play game, Dauntless supports itself via the Hunt Pass which mimics Fortnite’s own Battle Pass. As you complete hunts and cross off challenges, this will boost your rank and unlock rewards of an increasingly higher value and rarity. There are 50 Hunt Pass ranks in total.

Although not a competitive online game, Dauntless doesn’t dish out high end gear through its Hunt Pass that will affect gameplay. You’ll unlock various currencies, as well as cosmetic items such as banners, icons, emotes, and skins for your weapons and armour.

Dauntless officially launched on consoles on May 21st, coming to both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s been out on PC for a while now – in fact this is the game’s fifth season of its Hunt Pass, dubbed “Hidden Blades”. This name is no doubt tied to the ninja motifs and other certain aesthetic touches.

Yesterday, Dauntless was updated to 1.02 – here are the full patch notes.

  1. Although I enjoy Dauntless, it has acted as the catalyst for me and a group of friends to return to the much deeper Monster Hunter: World (where we all had a couple of hundred hours or more already invested). While comparisons between the two are inevitable I do however think Dauntless deserves to be enjoyed in its own right, and I hope the content and incentives continue to improve. I’m sure I’ll play more.
