Where to find challenges for Surfpiercer
Once you’ve finished playing The Golden Apple Vacation Returns, you can begin the Surfpiercer challenge! To view the six tasks that will gradually become available over the event period, go to the event menu, select Event Details, and then click on Surfpiercer.
To locate a challenge’s precise position on the World Map, select it and then click Go to Challenge. The distinct icons that each Surfpiercer task has on the map can be used to identify them, however each icon stands for a different challenge.
Rules of the game Surfpiercer
The obstacle courses contain golden track banners. These must be passed through by your Waverider in order to continue. You can access the banners from any angle, allowing you to go back if you missed one.
Around the course, green bubbles will start to appear. These are known as Piercer’s Drives, and they can be avoided by doing so or by employing the Coalesce skill. Coalesce has a three-second cooldown and can be used by selecting the Elemental Skill button. You may need to use Coalesce several times to complete some tasks.
The gauge for the Surfpiercer’s Surge, which can be used by pressing the Normal Attack button, will fill up after gathering enough Piercer’s Dives. This ability will move the Waverider forward and has the power to remove small barriers in your path. You may need to use Surfpiercer’s Surge several times or remove a predetermined number of barriers in order to complete some levels.
You must exit the Waverider at the conclusion of each Surfpiercer task by depressing the jump button and flying through the airborne rings to reach the finish line. You must step on or glide toward the ring that has an arrow on it to declare the challenge successful. Don’t forget to claim goodies, such as Primogems, on the event page’s Surfpiercer section!
