Feats abound in DC Universe
Online (this game's "Achievement"
equivalent) and range from defeating a particularly difficult mission
without being knocked out to reaching a certain level, and everything
in between. Exploration feats, which are broken down into
Investigations (Green !s), Player Briefs (Blue !s) and Collections
(Yellow ?s),
are some of the easiest to complete while also being among the most
frustrating to track down. For the first few articles in this series,
I'll be focusing on the Blue ! type - Player Briefs. These little
holographic tokens
can hide anywhere you can imagine - under bridges, behind stacks of
boxcars, the tops of roofs, tucked into an alcove halfway up a
highrise, etc.

This is the symbol for
the Player Brief type of exploration feat.

They also occasionally disappear! These tokens despawn after they've
been interacted with. So if you're just casually flying/gliding/zipping
through the city you may miss one simply because another hero or
villain picked it up a few moments before you got there. If you don't
know it's supposed to be there, you may never return to that location
for your shot at these special feats.



And that's where these guides come in! In this series of articles, I'll
be offering maps and screenshot tips on tracking each of these illusive
tokens down, as well as telling you about which rewards you can expect
from completing each particular set of Player Briefs.



I would like to preface this guide with the disclaimer that this guide
may be skewed in favor of fliers, over those that have chosen
acrobatics or superspeed as their travel power of choice. In fact, the
Feats themselves are crafted in such a way to favor flight. But
hopefully with the pictures and maps included, this bias can be
overcome.



The tokens for each set can be picked up in any
order. The order listed
herein is simply the order in which I found and tagged them. Click on
any picture for a magnified view of the area surrounding each token's
location. The purple beacons shown in some shots should style="font-style: italic;">not be used as
reliable landmarks, as they may or may not appear for you depending on
your level and whether or not you've unlocked certain speed challenges.

Survival of the Fittest

In this first guide, I'll
be covering the "Survival
of the Fittest
"
set of investigations. This is a meta-achievement, comprised of two
separate collections of six tokens each.



For each of these 6-token collections, you will receive a prize in the
form of a unique costume piece.



The final prize for completing both collections is a unique costume
piece that fits in your back slot, that resembles the famous wings of
Hawkman himself:
