Tiered Milestones for Skin Rewards

Anyone remember the Han Smuggler skin milestone? I think the idea of accomplishing feats for cool cosmetics was really nice. I’ve always enjoyed doing difficult tasks for interesting cosmetics in games to reflect skill and accomplishments. These challenges would not expire, just more of a progression to it like the other milestones.

I’d like to request for more skin milestones to become added in, but in a new way. I think adding challenges in like this would be great incentives for completionists.

My idea for a revamped system is a multi-tier challenge system with each tier rewarding a better rarity skin. I’d imagine they’d be infantry focused only, with a linear challenge milestone line for each class. A hero version could be possible, but I doubt they’d have more than 1 or 2 tiers at the most. These are just my ideas for challenges and their respective rewards

  1. Tier 1 Challenge: Get 4 Kills with 1 grenade.
    Reward: Common- First Order Executioner
  2. Tier 2 Challenge: Kill 50 Enforcers with Vanguard
    Reward: Rare- Stormtrooper Sergeant
  3. Tier 3 Challenge: 300 Kills with Flash Pistol
    Reward: Epic- J-Sec Security(Resistance)
  4. Tier 4 Challenge: Escape Overtime 125 times(Attacking)
    Reward: Legendary- Kel-dor(Rebellion)
  1. Tier 1 Challenge: Destroy a vehicle with a Detonite Charge
    Reward: Common- Dressellian(Rebellion)
  2. Tier 2 Challenge: Absorb 10,000 damage with the Personal Shield
    Reward: Rare- Shock Trooper(Empire)
  3. Tier 3 Challenge: Get the final blow on Objective Vehicles(AT-AT, MTT, Hardcell) 75 times
    Reward: Epic- Airborne Trooper
  4. Tier 4 Challenge: Get 5 kills with Sentry(any variant) in one life 200 times
    Reward: Legendary- Combat Driver(Empire)
  1. Tier 1 Challenge: Finish a round with 0 Eliminations and 8,000 score
    Reward: Common- ISB Officer(Empire)
  2. Tier 2 Challenge: Disrupt 4 enemies’ blasters at once 40 times
    Reward: Rare- Quarren(Separatists)
  3. Tier 3 Challenge: 300 Kills with the Homing Shot
    Reward: Epic- Rebel Honor Guard
  4. Tier 4 Challenge: Hold Defense Objectives in Overtime for a total of 3 hours
    Reward: Legendary- Squadron Leader(Resistance)
  1. Tier 1 Challenge: Get 3 kills with 1 Trip Mine
    Reward: Common- Bothan(Rebellion)
  2. Tier 2 Challenge: Melee Kill 50 Heroes
    Reward: Rare- FO TIE Pilot
  3. Tier 3 Challenge: Hit 300 Headshots(Kills)
    Reward: Epic- Storm Commando
  4. Tier 4 Challenge: Get 5 Kills with Infiltration(any variant) in one life 200 times
    Reward: Legendary- Stealth Operations Trooper

What do you guys think? Too easy? Too hard? Skins not valuable enough? Is this something you’d want in the game, and if so for heroes also? I know I would enjoy working towards these.

  • I like the idea, but the challenges seem too hard.
    Although, if the challenges are the only way to get those skins, and they don't come back, then I don't like the idea in the slightist.

    Never forget

    I think they’d be impossible if they were timed challenges like they were before. That’s what I didn’t like about the old way getting the Hoth skins. These would be in with our other permanent challenges, albeit better rewards, as incentives to play hard to unlock cool things over time. I guess it’d be more in line with getting the bearded Han skin. Totally forgot about the way you got that until now.

    I was aiming for what Call of Duty Black Ops 2 went for to unlock Diamond camouflage. Boy it was hard sometimes, but you got respect when people saw it.

    I’ll see if I can edit the OP to include the permanence of it. It’d be a major put off trying to do this stuff in a few weeks.
  • Sounds interesting.
    Also, some of the skins are awesome, like the FO Pilot and Executioner!

    Never forget
  • Love it.
