This video will show you a fast and easy way to obtain all Gear and Weapon Challenge Trophies in Anthem.
Gear Challenge Rewards (Banners) are shown at the end - 10:47
The fastest way to obtain the Gear Challenges and Weapon Challenges related trophies is as followed:
Equip 2 (or 3) required Gear items and 2 required Weapons and go into Freeplay mode.
Complete 4 World Events in Freeplay to complete the Gear Challenges for the Gear items you have currently equipped.
The Gear Challenges will take up most time but the good thing is that you can complete them together with the Weapon Challenges.
Keep in mind that the Autocannon and Grenade Launcher Challenges can only be completed with the Colossus Javelin.
Also keep in mind that the Autocannons and Grenade Launchers will only drop when playing with the Colossus Javelin.
During these 4 World Events you will also kill a lot of enemies so you can get 50 kills with both Weapons during these Freeplay session.
This way you can complete 2 (or 3) Gear Challenges and 2 Weapon Challenges in less than 20 minutes!
Completing World Events will reward new Gear for your current Javelin and also new Weapons.
So, if you picked a new Javelin and don't have all the required Gear yet to complete all Challenges, don't worry you'll get them along the way.
If the required Gear items and Weapons don't drop during Freeplay try farming the Stronghold: Heart of Rage on Normal difficulty.
I also recommend setting the difficulty of Freeplay to Easy to speed things up.
Start your Freeplay session at East Gate and fly north to Emerald Abyss then Monument Watch and down to Academy Ruins. Along this path you should easily find 4 World Events
In total there are 48 Gear Challenges. 12 Gear Challenges for each Javelin. All require you to complete 4 missions.
You will need 5 Freeplay sessions for each Javelin type (if you haven't done any main or side missions with this Javelin's gear).
In total there are 27 Weapon Challenges. 3 Weapon Challenges for each Weapon Type. All require you to kill 50 enemies.
You are also allowed to use named Masterwork / Legendary Weapons.
