In order to earn rewards in HUT Challenges, you will need complete the unique objectives for every HUT Challenge. These objectives can range from something as simple as winning the game to more complex challenges like taking 10 more shots than your opponent. Once you complete an objective and finish the game, you will earn a star for that objective. Additionally, you will unlock the HUT Challenge rewards equal to the amount of stars you have earned on that challenge! Complete all three objectives to earn all of the rewards for the HUT Challenge.
HUT Challenges can reward you with a variety of rewards. From coins to player items to Packs, the rewards for completing HUT Challenges will go a long way to improving your HUT team. As you progress within each HUT Challenges category, the rewards get bigger and better. You will only get the rewards from completing a challenge once.
If you are playing HUT Challenges through local or online co-op, the account that is hosting the game will be the account that receives the HUT Challenge rewards. The guests or friends that are invited into the HUT Challenge will not receive the rewards from the HUT Challenge.
