New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on January 08, 2022) follows:

Riders Republic is an extreme sports game from Ubisoft, the company responsible for the successful action and adventure saga Assassins Creed.

In the last few weeks, Riders Republic players have been spotting some glitches. Now, according to the most recent reports, there is an issue related to goal tracking on certain challenges (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8).

More specifically, it is said that the Shack Daddy challenge progression in Riders Republic is not being properly tracked. So, players cannot get their corresponding rewards (1, 2, 3).

Riders Republic Shack Daddy challenge progression not working

Shack Daddy challenges in Riders Republic are a set of tests that, when completed, rewards players with a special prize. These challenges are renewed on a weekly basis.

Having said the above, it looks like this week’s challenges are presenting some issues. Multiple reports indicate that Riders Republic Shack Daddy challenge progression is not being tracked.

Fast pass challenge not tracking

I don’t know if this is happening to anyone else but the weekly challenge for the foam bike isn’t tracking at all. It says to do events or mp events and I’ve done basically every type of event, is there a specific one it needs or is it just bugged?

In addition to the above, for some players, their progress on those challenges is even resetting. So, the game reportedly asks them to re-complete them again.

Some players completed the challenge without receiving rewards

It should be noted that one of the main rewards of the challenge is the Foam Bike. However, there are players who completed the challenges before settling on the Foam Bike as a reward.

But, those players report that, even after completing the challenges, they do not receive the special bike as a reward.
