    If your Xbox is resetting after a restart, this is something that you'll have to contact Xbox Support for. :( The Petrol bombs should work. Please do let me know if they help you out with the issue. :)

    I don't want to hear any of that. All you PC elitists get to MOD your game to get way more fun stuff than us Xbox users. Work with YojimBeau and some of the other wonderfully talented modders, and they can help you get everything you could want. You can even get the school backpack before we can UNLOCK it next month. There are other coming after that, like the piggy tow truck, etc. I wish I was able to do some of the mods that change the style and visuals of the game. Alas I have an Xbox.

    Just saying I don't feel bad for any of you PC users. You are probably the first I have heard say that XBox users have some sort of advantage. :p

    While it's true that the monthly challenges are for XB1 players, like Dutch said above, the content is in the code.

    I finally unlocked the challenge. Thank you for telling me to just use the Petrol bombs:), I guess using the other fire weapons just keep's resetting the counter. Did not know that it took a certain kind of fire weapon to unlock ito_O.

    I think that flame fougasse would have worked as well. :)

    I was going to say— the 'red fire' (petrol bombs, whisky bottles, fougasse) and the 'green fire' (chemical incendiaries) may get tallied separately. I know that sounds rather Zelda but it could explain at least part of what's happening. Still, it shouldn't be resetting the counter. Hell, they might all be tallied separately and just weren't properly grouped for this challenge. That definitely sounds like a bug to me.

    ok so its late enough into the challenge now that everyone should have it.................
    It seems outpost traps destroying hordes counts towards "Fire" challenges.
    I unlocked this without using a single fire implement, within minutes of loading up game after challenge went live.
    Also in breakdown I unlocked Becca without using a single fire item, I actually watched the counter some with her and noticed it going up every so often.

    I didn't notice the same thing. But I guess I didn't specifically check to see if the outposts was helping. But it took me a while because I didn't start right on it, and I didn't get the achievement until I started contributing to the tally.

    I believe it's the back-to-school backpack.
    It's a lovely low-slung backpack like Gurubani's, but with a colorful print on it.

    I just got the back to school backpack, it's cool looking. I just hope I get the medicine drop challenge. Three Million Freak kill's is a tall order to make, I hope everyone chips in. I did not get the ammo drop last time because I came into the game late in the month, not this time.
