Challenges are various objectives available in the Cortex for the Freelancer to earn a wide variety of rewards, including cosmetics, blueprints, currencies, lore and much more. Each challenge can be tracked to check for its progress.

Only Path to Glory and Festive challenges can be repeated when available, while all others are one-time challenges. Certain Challenges called “Ongoing Challenges” can also be repeated when full season events take place, however, they are not uniquely grouped in such a section any longer. Certain challenges are available for a limited time and may never return in the future.

The Tables below Shows the Sub Sections as the title of each column, and within each column, the Level 1 cortex entries. Under the Table will be the list of all Cortex Entries found within each of the 14 Sub Section of the Challenges.


Click on the name to go to individual pages that show the details of what they contain. Those pages may not necessarily show the list of all the cortex entries in that Sub Section. However, all those entries are listed below this table under separate headings.
