Dauntless weekly update adds challenges for Season 5 Week 5

Slayers gather around – if you fancy getting your hands on some extra Dauntless swag then you’ll want to take note of this week’s new challenges.

The four achievement-like tasks will ask you to hunt the game’s Behemoths using different weapons and techniques – a clever way to incentivize new play styles and tactics.


We’re several weeks into the current Dauntless fifth live season, it’s first since the game hit consoles last month.

This week’s challenges aren’t too taxing though it will require a minimum of 10 hunts to clear all four. You’ll want to make sure you’re evading Behemoth attacks while making sure you have either a Frost type Hammer or War Pike equipped.

Dauntless Season 5 Week 5 Hunt Pass challenges

Here’s a full rundown:

  • Frost Hazard – Slay 10 Behemoths using Frost weapons
  • Behemoth, Interrupted – Get 30 interrupts on any Behemoths
  • Behemoth’s Bane – Slay 10 Behemoths using Hammers or War Pikes
  • Master of Evasion – Dodge through 125 attacks

Completing any of these challenges will earn you 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 Hunt Pass rank and unlock rewards of an increasingly higher value and rarity. There are 50 Hunt Pass ranks in total.

You may have noticed that the Hunt Pass has two paths, basic and elite. Those who pay for a premium pass will get upgraded to elite status, netting them even more rewards for ranking up as well as 50% extra Mastery experience and bonus loot at the end of every hunt.

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.
