So I've completed the smoke bomb challenge "smoke screen" and am 5-6 away from completing "cut through the fog." I go into my profile sets and to my class w/ smoke bombs and they all have the locked symbol above them, even though I've completed the challenge. Do I have to wait for the right level? If so thats kinda stupid. completing challenges gives you a slight advantage over your enemy if you unlock better equipment. Anyone have any suggestions?

P.S. does the e-mail notifications not work for some reason? I have yet to get a e-mail about a reply to a post.

All the unlocks are level based.

The challenges give you extra XP, which lets you level faster.

No they're not. Some abilities are unlocked through challenges. As for the first question, did you beat it 3 times? Each challenge has 3 sets before its fully completed. The abilities unlock after all 3 sets are complete.

Correct, to further elaborate. Usually skill reward sets, will give XP for the first 2 steps...1 and 2. Then of course, upon completion of step 3, the skill will unlock.

Odds are the OP likely just ranked up to rank 2 of the challenge, since he could have seen the in-game message of completing said challenge.

Guess I haven't advanced far enough in anything to have seen this yet.

I unlocked (but am yet to use) firecrackers last time I played, to give you an idea how I would have missed this one.

My bad.

Yeah, I'm having a devil of a time getting the fast reloading poison because you have to poison running targets. :\

No I definitely have both challenges at rank 3 and they say "done.". Any other suggestions?
