You can unlock the ACR 6.8 in XDefiant, one of the best assault rifles available, by completing an in-game challenge.

The ACR is one of the most powerful Assault Rifles in XDefiant. It isn't available right off the bat, however. You'll need to unlock the ACR 6.8 in Ubisoft's XDefiant before you can put together a beastly loadout and dominate.

We've got you covered on how to add this weapon to your collection.

There are multiple categories of challenges in XDefiant. You've got your challenges to unlock Factions, daily challenges for XP rewards, and challenges to unlock weapons, devices, or Faction characters.

The ACR falls into the latter category. If you want to unlock the ACR 6.8 in XDefiant, you can go to the Weapons challenges under the Base tab. You'll find that it requires you to Get 10 Assault Rifle Longshot Kills.

Longshot kills are considered anything from 30m or greater. So, get yourself one of the assault rifles you have unlocked or the starter M4A1. Set up in the backlines of the battle and fire away. Once you get 10 kills from a good distance, the ACR is yours.

It might seem like a small number compared to other challenges in XDefiant. While 10 kills isn't a lot, getting them from over 30m can be quite the task.

This is especially true if you want to unlock the ACR 6.8 right away. You'll have a tough time without any attachments on the M4A1 or other assault rifles. So, use these helpful tips to make it happen:

  • Level up the M4A1 by simply getting kills with it in XDefiant multiplayer
  • Get the weapon to level 7 to unlock attachments that will help you complete the challenge
    • Holo Optic at level 6
    • Heavy Grip Rear Grip at level 5
    • Padded Stock at level 7
  • Load into a match with the M4A1 and the above attachments
  • Find a pathway or corridor with a long line of sight
  • Aim down the sights of your assault rifle and pick off any opponent that walks into the crosshair from a distance

Soon enough, you should net your 10 long distance kills and you'll unlock the ACR 6.8 in XDefiant.
