In every Tides of War chapter of Battlefield 5, DICE always rolls out a new set of challenges that rotate every week which gives players something to aim for whenever they’re playing. With Battlefield 5’s battle royale mode Firestorm set to hit tomorrow, it seems the Battlefield 5 Tides of War chapter 3 challenges will have a lot tied to the mode, which isn’t surprising.
Unearthed via datamining the game files by Reddit user temporyal, the full list of Battlefield 5 Tides of War chapter 3 challenges can be seen below! Note that these could change at anytime, so don’t read everything you read as things that are set in stone.
here is a little data mining sneak peak to the upcoming Tides of War weekly challenges. Please be aware of the following things:
- Some weeks are still in development (especially week 4) and anything can change
- I can’t provide you actual values for the challenges – so I replaced the variables with X
- Right now I am not able to see the different “paths” of the weekly challenges – therefore it’s just a list and not a tree
- Usually the first and the last challenge are single and therefore have to be done
- Expect a lot of weeks to offer some kind of alternative route in the middle without focusing too much on Firestorm
Week 1 (March 28 – April 4)
Face the Firestorm and tackle challenges introducing you to battle royale, reimagined for Battlefield.
Reward: Firestorm face paint.
