The Gold Miner
|Collect all Gold Explore Badges|
Get all 15 badges under the EXPLORE category.
Many of these Badges require friends to set records. If you need to find friends to play with, look HERE.
Earn a Bronze/Silver/Gold Medal for every drop in one Range:
Mount Fuji does not count for this badge. You must earn Bronze/Silver/Gold medals in all Trick, Race and Survive It! events for the 3-4 peaks in each range. I found Alaska easiest, but this 100% comes down to personal preference.
Earn a total of 1500/15,000/150,000 SSX Credits from ghost wins:
When you complete an event in Explore mode, you upload a ghost that your friends compete against when they do the same event. If they fail to beat your record, you gain credits.
Competing in as many events on as many different ranges and peaks as you can will increase your chances of friends playing against your ghost. Of course you may boost this badge by having your friends purposely fail to break your records repeatedly. You may have to quit and restart the game in order to earn this badge.
Your records have withstood 1/25/50 challenge from your Friends:
This similar to the previous badge set, but this time the amount of Credits is not what is important, but rather how many times they fail to beat your ghost. This may be boosted in the same way as the previous badge set.
Beat 1/25/50 Friends records:
Records do not have to be set by 50 different friends, you may beat one friend's records 50 times, or two friends' records 25 times each, etc. You may boost this by having a friend set very low records on runs and doing better than they did.
Place 1/5/15 Geotag that never gets collected (earning you the max):
This one seems to have most people confused, especially about the definition of "never." Once you place a Geotag, an invisible timer starts. The length of this timer is affected by the color of the Geotag. Geotags of level 1-7 are Green and have the lowest timer, Geotags level 8 and 9 are Purple and have a medium length timer, and Geotags level 10 are Yellow and have the longest timer.
If a Geotag is collected before the timer expires, you receive a percentage of the total credits and the person who collected it gets the full amount of credits. However, if the timer reaches its full duration, the Geotag expires and you receive the full amount of credits on the Geotag. Each Geotag that expires naturally brings you one step closer to these badges.
As for hiding the Geotags, I recommend against placing them in places you reached accidentally. It may seem out of the way, but if you got there by accident, it's likely someone else will as well. A better thing to do is place them in areas that you must aim for, like an area you must go off the track and/or boost uphill in order to reach. Also, not many people play levels in the Himalayas that require Oxygen tanks, or, to a lesser extent, ones in Antarctica that require Solar Panels. A well hid Geotag on either of those levels will have minimal risk of being found.
