This guide is made to help you find every historical challenge currently in the game.
Note: This guide is still a work-in-progress, I will be adding more content like pictures later on to help you understand where to perform the challenges.
Hello! This guide is made to show all of the current historical challenges. There are currently 34 of them (one of them is broken) and this guide will go through each one of them.
Shoutout to JL Nightmare for finding all of the challenges! If you want to see a video of them rather than reading through this guide, you can find his video linked in the “Video” section.
