  • Challenges can be swapped in/out to suit your play style. Instead of new Daily Challenges replacing your current Challenges, they are added to the list of reserve Challenges for each mode, and can be completed any time before the end of the season.
  • Complete Daily Challenges at your own pace without losing progress. Challenges swapped out will retain any earned progress and can be completed later.
