- Report back about the challenge
Starting Location: Hooked on the Thrill Challenge
Hooked on the Thrill Challenge is a side quest in Downtown that can be started by talking to Sam at the Brewery after activating the ‘Pine’ Windmill.
Finish the challenge with at least Bronze Medal
This quest is a parkour challenge. Interact with the bell next to Sam to initiate the challenge. In order to get bronze, you will need to collect all checkpoints within 2:30:00.
There will be 14 checkpoints for you to get in a particular order. The more stamina and parkour skills you have the easier this will be, but getting at least bronze should be very manageable with basic stats. Before you can do this however you will need to acquire the Grappling Hook, which you get in Main Quest “Broadcast”.
Report back about the challenge
As long as you got at least a bronze medal, talk to Sam. Otherwise, attempt the challenge again. You can also attempt the challenge again to get a silver or gold medal if you so desire.
This finishes Hooked on the Thrill Challenge Side Quest in Dying Light 2 Stay Human.
