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 a list of all the current Xbox Game Pass Quests for the week commencing 20th October 2020, along with some guides to help you tackle the most challenging quests of the month.

Skip through the initial cutscene and you'll head into the game's first level. Here, smash everything you can, root around through the bushes and grab any gems you find to increase your coin count.

Progress through the level while being thorough, and you'll very quickly hit that 300 mark.

Absolver - Kill 6 Players

Xbox Game Pass Quests October 2020 Absolver

This is arguably the hardest of October's months Quests, as it requires you to kill six online players as opposed to AI enemies, but it's not overly painful to get through.

Firstly, you'll need to complete the initial level which serves as a tutorial. Get to grips with the controls that it teaches you along the way, as you'll need them when fighting other players.

The second level is where you'll start running into other actual online players - you'll notice this by the Gamertag appearing above their heads. Face them in battle, and kill six of them to pop the Quest.

Fortunately, even if you die you'll respawn very quickly, and players will sometimes help you off the floor for a second fight. Stick with this, and it shouldn't take too long to complete.

  • Difficulty Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Time To Complete: 10 to 30 mins
  • Rewards Points: 75

F1 2019 - Complete 15 Laps

Xbox Game Pass Quests October 2020 F1 2019

The easiest way to complete this Quest is to run a Time Trial on the Japan Short track (not to be confused with the normal Japan track).

Laps on this course only take around 40 seconds, so you should be done in no time.

  • Difficulty Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Time To Complete: 10-20 mins
  • Rewards Points: 75

Human Fall Flat - Climb 70 Metres

You'll find a video guide for this Quest courtesy of Rewards Hunter above.

Climb 70 Metres for 75 Microsoft Rewards points. This will take about 10 minutes to complete and will involve us climbing some surfaces in the second level (train).

  • Difficulty Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Time To Complete: 10 mins
  • Rewards Points: 75

Wasteland 3 - Earn 3 Achievements

You'll find a video guide for this Quest courtesy of Rewards Hunter above.

Here are the Achievements used in the video:

  • No Show - Die in the first battle
  • Badda Bing - Blow up 6 enemies with a single explosive attack
  • On Your Own - Story based Achievement

This will probably take you 20-30 minutes to complete on easy difficulty. If you're having trouble unlocking the "Badda Bing" achievement where you kill six people with the rail gun at once, try bumping the game up to hard difficulty, and then restarting on Easy for the final "On Your Own" achievement where we need to work through the first level.

  • Difficulty Rating: 3 out of 5
  • Time To Complete: 20 to 30 mins
  • Rewards Points: 75
