You’ll get the ability to catch thrown objects by completing the challenge “Genki’s M.O.M. Silver Medals”. Get into a fight with a warden and use this Catch ability to capture its thrown objects and send them back to it.
Use any of your TK elements to kill at least 30 targets.
Throw People with Telekinesis
Grab and throw 100 targets using your TK ability.
After getting your super power, just find any vehicle and press right analog stick to kick any vehicles. Do this on 10 vehicles.

Shrunken Enemies Squished

Bounce Rifle Kills
Kill 250 enemies using your Bounce Rifle. This gun’s projectiles bounce off targets and is effective in closed areas or where there are objects/walls for the projectiles to bounce unto. The downside is that this gun quickly overheats, even after fully upgrading it.
Kill 250 enemies using your Dubstep Gun. This gun only becomes effective at destroying things after upgrading it. Save up and purchase its special ability that adds explosive damage to its beats. After getting that upgrade, this gun becomes a good crowd-control weapon.
Lift 150 enemies using your Abducto-o-Matic. This is best used against a large, semi-congested group of enemies. Take note that while the beam is active, you can’t fire it again until the beam fully dissipates. A “kill” is counted if the target dies while being “abducted”. If the target falls on the ground and dies, it’s not counted.
Use your Singularity Gun to release blackholes and suck 250 enemies. This gun kills anyone and destroys anything that gets sucked into the miniature black holes (except you and your homies). You may want to get the free upgrades of this gun by completing Gat’s other side quests and purchasing some of the upgrades from Friendly Fire as well. It’s quite easy to score some kills on this gun.
Use your Disintegrator to vaporize 100 targets. This gun allows one-hit kills no matter it hits the target. You can upgrade it to increase its charge capacity and recharge rate, allowing you to fire it faster and longer.
This gun inflates the head of a target until it explodes. Sadly, this is not effective against non-squishy targets like vehicles and murderbots (obviously). Kills are counted by exploding heads. If you upgrade this gun to enable its ability to cause AoE (area-of-effect) damage when the target’s head explodes, only the target’s death will be counted and not the collateral damage. Kill 100 targets using this weapon to complete the challenge.
Mech Suit Kills
You’ll unlock the Mech Suit after completing the last mission and finishing the game once. You have to kill 250 enemies with it.
Tentacle Bat Beatdowns
You can select the Tentacle Bat from your Gateway weapons or from Friendly fire. Violate 30 targets with it to complete the challenge.
Destroy Alien Vehicles
Any vehicle that looks alien and red is a target. Destroy 100 of these to complete the challenge.
You’ll usually find CIDs providing shields to alien troops and murderbots. Destroy 100 of these to complete the challenge.
Murderbots will first appear during the primary quest where you ‘re getting a body for CID. If you only managed to destroy half of its body, the other half will still crawl towards you. You can freeze-shatter them if you want to avoid dealing with their surviving half. 60 murderbots need to be destroyed to complete this challenge.
Portals appear when alien reinforcements need to get to your location. Just shoot at them to destroy them. Destroy 30 portals to complete this challenge.
1000 aliens to be killed in any way you want. Nuff said.
The wardens you need to kill as part of primary and side quests won’t be enough. You need to deliberately call in wardens by achieving the maximum notoriety. Dealing with wardens become a lot easier after upgrading your weapons and powers. Fights against wardens always include bringing its shield down before attacking with your weapons.
Once you got the Buff ability, your weapons can cut through the wardens’ shield as long as the buff is active. Repeat the steps until the warden reels in pain. Press RT to attempt assimilating the warden. Mash the shown buttons to successfully absorb and kill the warden.
25 kills will get you the “Zoo Keeper” achievement. Kill 5 more to complete this challenge.
