Xbox Game Pass Quests is a branch of Microsoft Rewards that allows you to earn redeemable points by completing various Xbox and Game Pass related objectives. These points can then be used to acquire various gift cards, such as Xbox and Microsoft currency, as well as competition entries and charity donations. It's basically like completing Achievements, but for real money.

These quests come in three varieties — daily, weekly and monthly. Below, you'll find some guides to help you tackle some of the currently most challenging Quests for the week commencing 26th October 2021.
