Seasons were a series of limited time post-launch events in Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!. Each season was based around a theme and ran for a number of weeks.

Game Mechanics[]

Team Leaderboard[]

With each season, the online team leaderboard started anew. Here, players worked together in teams of up to 30 members to collect as many trophies as possible, with bigger prizes available the higher your team ended up. When the season came to an end, players were given their prizes depending on where their team placed, and the leaderboard was reset for the next season with all players' trophy counts dropping to zero.

Pass[]

Introduced in The Return of Nitros Oxide!, the Pass was a gauge that filled up the more trophies the player earns. There were 30 tiers in this gauge total, with prizes such as ingredients and Portal Weapons, survival run tickets, crystals, experience points and skins being awarded to the player when they reached a new tier.

There were two sets of prizes available - the Free Pass, which was available to all players, and the Bandicoot Pass, which costed a single payment of real money to access, giving higher amounts of resources and rarer skins. Players who had bought the Bandicoot Pass would still receive the prizes from the Free Pass as well.

Missions[]

See: Mission Board

Introduced in The Return of Nitros Oxide, Missions were tasks requiring the player to gather a certain number of items or craft a certain number of Portal Weapons. Completing these missions rewarded the player with experience points and Mojo, which fills up a mojo gauge that awarded the player with high amounts of trophies when certain milestones are reached. Handing in a mission would consume the items that you had collected for the mission.

Seasonal Bosses[]

Introduced in Running Outta Time!, seasonal bosses were gangs that were made available to fight for a limited time. These gangs included bosses and henchmen that were exclusive to that specific season, with the boss being that season's host. These seasonal gangs yielded much higher amounts of trophies than normal gangs.

List of Seasons[]

Beta Phase[]

See: Beta Seasons

A few monthly seasons of 2 weeks were run during the beta phase of the game in order to test out the Team Leaderboards and Survival Run mode. Some had no rewards as the developers were still testing out how to attribute them to players. These seasons included:

  • Nina Cortex's Challenge (December 2020)
  • Dingodile's Challenge (January 2021)
  • Scorporilla's Challenge (March 2021)
