Accepting Shadow Briefings is more than easy. Simply approach a Shadow Briefing terminal and a prompt to interact with it will appear. Press the prompted button and you will see the mission briefing, with the option to reject (X) or accept (✓). Naturally, you would want to accept. Note that you need to complete the ongoing Shadow mission, if you have one, before you’re able to accept a new one.

Types of Shadow Briefings

There are four different Shadow Briefing tasks, represented by four different icons on the computer screen. Each represents a different mission type, and those are:

  • Bounty Shadow Briefings (Crosshair icon) – similar to Bounty Boards, these will pick a random target and task you with eliminating it within a certain time limit.
  • Supply Shadow Briefings (Parachute/Supply Crate icon) – a supply drop will be marked nearby that you must pick up within a certain time limit. Note that this will also attract opponents.
  • Treasure Shadow Briefings (Map icon) – You have to find two treasures hidden in a marked area, within a time limit.
  • Vehicle Shadow Briefings (Steering Wheel icon) – This will rift in a vehicle, and you must drive it a certain distance to complete this mission.
