What are Xbox Game Pass Quests?

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 18th January 2022.

Descenders - Get 10,000 Reputation (Monthly Quest)

Xbox Game Pass Quests January 2022 Descenders

We've seen this one before! You'll want to start a new Career mode in Descenders and play through the various levels — with the goal of getting to the finish line without crashing. Each level rewards you with reputation for going fast, performing tricks, going off course and doing various other tasks. It'll probably take you a few levels to reach 10,000 rep (it could take up to 25-30 minutes), but if you want to, you can make it easy for yourself by simply racing to the finish line and avoiding the jumps and obstacles entirely.

If you get to 10,000 rep and the Quest still won't pop, try purposely crashing your bike multiple times to end the career mode session and send you back to the main menu. Alternatively, you might need to just keep getting a few thousand more rep, as Descenders Quests haven't always tracked particularly well in the past.

New Super Lucky's Tale - Collect 300 Coins (Monthly Quest)

Xbox Game Pass Quests January 2022 New Super Lucky's Tale

Pretty self-explanatory this one — start playing through the game and collecting all the coins you can find, whether that's in the open or by smashing boxes and completing tasks. Once you've got 300, you're all set!

However, keep in mind that you need to also complete the level and/or go to the main menu in order for this Quest to pop. We've seen reports that you can quit the game after collecting 300 and it'll pop anyway, but that didn't work for us.

Xbox Game Pass Quests January 2022 The Long Dark

Yes, we've also seen this one before! It simply requires walking / running for about 10-20 minutes, and then the Quest will pop. Slow and a bit annoying, but very, very easy! Here's a guide from the MS Rewards Reddit team:

  • Difficulty Rating: 2 out of 5
