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.

It's basically like completing Achievements, but for real money.

Kona - Travel 3 Kilometers (17/11 - 24/11)

Xbox Game Pass Quests November 2020 Kona

This Quest simply requires you to travel a certain distance - you can do this at the wheel and also on foot.

Here's a guide courtesy of Thoynan on the Microsoft Rewards Reddit:

"Start the game. After you get control at the train tracks, hold the lb to reverse the car. Once you are stopped by the game, hold RT to drive. Before you get the bridge (kinda a clearing after the bend in the road, you will see roof like structure in the distance) turn the truck around. Drive back to the forced stopping point, and the quest is complete. If you get too far, you can exit to the main menu and start a new game, as the forced driving counts for the quest."

Gears Tactics - Earn 1 Achievement

Xbox Game Pass Quests November 2020 Gears Tactics

There are plenty of easy achievements in Gears Tactics, and one of the easiest is called Tactics!

This involves performing a chainsaw execution, which you can do in the tutorial. Follow the tutorial (press B to skip the cutscenes beforehand), wait for the option to unlock as part of your arsenal of attacks, and then use it on an enemy to pop the Achievement.

Here's another explanation for this courtesy of Pure Xbox community member @unionjackboy:

"After a few moves the chainsaw appears and you can select it as a weapon, then move the pointer (your character) next to the enemy, and press X and it’ll move your player over and chainsaw the enemy."

The Jackbox Party Pack 4 - Earn 5 Bracketeering Cinderellas

Xbox Game Pass Quests November 2020 The Jackbox Party Pack 4

The Bracketeering game in The Jackbox Party Pack 4 is played by using an internet browser on a PC, laptop, tablet or mobile, and this specific Quest reportedly requires four separate players (you can add more of these by simply opening up new internet browsers / incognito tabs).

Here's a guide for completing the Quest courtesy of TurboChargeEagle on Reddit:

If you load up Bracketeering in Jackbox, the game consists of each player putting down word/s for each bracket and then predicting and voting on which word the group will choose to move further in the bracket.

Getting the quest requires 5 Cinderellas. A Cinderella is obtained when, during the prediction part of the game, every player predicts a word to lose and then, during the head to head competition, that word ends up winning. You would need to do this for the same word until it wins the bracket to get a Cinderella. So, for each bracket, have 1 word answer in mind that you’re constantly choosing to lose in each prediction but win in each head to head. You should get 1 Cinderella for each bracket you do this, Jackbox should give you an achievement the first time it happens.

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