Here is a workaround to get Legendary Freelancer challenge. (post patch 1.1)

 

1. Go to javelins in Forge
2. Create a new loadout and when asked to reset or keep, choose reset.
3. Now just put on gear until it reaches the desired level. (Common, Epic, Masterwork, etc)
4. Choose a contract and change difficulty if needed.
5. After completing the expedition, you'll notice the checkbox is marked off that you'll need.
6. Rinse and repeat for each level.
7. This way, you do not have to repeat the whole campaign again on a new javelin.

Javelin rarities got checked when I replayed missions with corresponding rarities after yesterdays patch, but I can't get the "Complete mission challenges" to work.

I've redid 3 out of 4 challenges today. The only one I can't do just yet is the Return to the Heart of Rage mission. I guess it just needs pop up in the legendary missions

so I can replay it. Frown

Did you replay *missions* or did you go into Freeplay and do *events*? Because playing *events* doesn't seem to 'check the box' for me.

I think the final challenge is a placeholder and not done yet. I thought it was Champion of Tarsis but thats not it.

It's doable and I should have it already. Some players have it checked and someone posted the challenges for it on Reddit.

 

Complete Agent Challenges

Complete Mission: Return to the Heart of Rage

Dax: Emerald Abyss

Matthias: Triple Threat

I can confirm this now.

 

Going into Freeplay will not 'check off' the Javelin challenges for Legendary Freelancer.

 

However, doing the Legendary Mission or a story mission or a contract will check off the Javelin rarity challenges for Legendary Freelancer.

[xbox one x] That hasn't worked for me.  I even tried making a new javelin and running legendary missions, contracts, strongholds, and world events on the lower jav rarities with no success of getting any of them checked off for the Legendary Freelancer challenge.  My next step would be to create a new pilot and try.

Apparently it's fixed for new players, for veterans there is a workaround.

 

Create a new javelin and run through the campaign in easy. It should take a couple hours and everything is checked off and you get a new graphic along with coins
