C6: Community Content Creator Contingency Contract Challenge!

Submit Feedback or Error

Instructions (If you Dare to accept them)

Several amazing Content Creators have prepared for you a Contingency Contract Challenge!  To test your wits and help prepare you for the CC Event that is coming our way very soon!  Prizes will be awarded to players who participate! (Details, rules, and submission instructions can be found below!)

  • If you are unfamiliar with the basics of the CC Event, then start here.  We will assume you know what things like Contracts and Risk Levels are.
  • Obviously, Contract restrictions must be self-imposed.
  • For each Challenge, the content creator has specified a map and set of challenge specific Contracts that can be selected.
  • In addition to the Challenge-specific Contracts, a set of "General" Contracts can be selected as well, listed at the bottom of the page.  There's a few rules on applying Risk Levels that will be explained in a bit.

Event Rules

  • Select a stage to clear.  Any stage is possible, but only the Content Creator selected stages will be eligible for the Risk 13+ Prize Pool.  Custom stages are still eligible for the general participation prize pool.  
  • General Contracts and Content Creator Contracts each have an assigned risk level.  The total risk level will be the sum of contracts taken.
  • Those attempting to clear Risk Level 13 or under can use any combination of General Contracts and Content Creator Contracts specific to the Challenge.
  • For those attempting to clear greater than Risk 13, there is an order to adding Risk Levels.  First, the clear must have 13 Risk Levels from General Contracts to be considered valid.  Next, the Content Creator Risks specific to the challenge are added.  If the participant intends on adding even more risk once all Content Creator Risks are exhausted, they can continue adding on General Risks as available.
  • The Event Period is 5/25 to 6/14 23:59 UTC-7.

Clear Submission

Submissions will be done via this form:

Frequently Asked Questions


Can you use Practice Mode for your clear?

  • Yes.  We even recommend it to save stamina, which is all too precious in this game.

Are Support Units Allowed?

  • Yes, Support Units are allowed, but must still conform to the risks chosen.  I.e. With the Waifus only risk, Ansel is (unfortunately) not allowed.

Are the rewards based on the highest risk level possible?

  • No.  Rewards are randomly selected from each participant pool.  Just like Contingency Contract, after a certain risk level there are no other (tangible) rewards aside from prestige and bragging rights.  Edit: As of 5/29/2020, the first pool is now a General Participation pool (every entry included).  The Risk 13+ pool remains the same.

How many times can I submit a clear?

  • You can submit a clear as many times as you want, but will only be entered in the drawing once.

Can CN Players participate?

  • Yes, CN, JP, and KR players may participate in this event as well. The more the merrier!


Contract Selection

Are the Challenge Specific Contracts required for the clear?

  • No.  Challenge Specific contracts are not inherently required for the clear unless you are trying to go above Risk Level 13.  Otherwise, you are free to mix and match them as you like!

Can you clarify how the risk levels stack together?

  • There are two cases for risk levels, if you are doing 13 and below category, or above 13.  
  • For Risk Level 13 and below, you can choose any of the General Risk Contracts and Content Creator Contracts.  I.e. For Haku's Tutorial you can take Challenge Mode and Parachute Shortage for a valid sub-13 clear.
  • For Higher than Risk Level 13, at least 13 Risk Levels must come from the General Contracts.  Any additional risks must come from the Content Creator Contracts.  I.e. For Haku's Tutorial I hit Risk 13 with Smaller Team 3(3), No Ranged(3), Parachute Shortage 2(3), One Time Use(3), and Univeral Basic Income (1).  Then I take Challenge Mode (3) and Wizards Untie (3), for a total risk of 19 (13 + 6).  

Can I use a Content Creator's Contract on a different Content Creator's Challenge?

  • Unfortunately, no.  The Content Creator specific contracts are designed for their stages choices.

Specific Contract Clarification

For 5-10, how does the Hoarder Risk work since I start at 0 DP?

  • It is ok to be at 0 DP at the start, but you must maintain the target DP whenever possible.  Once you hit 5/10 DP you cannot go below it.

How are Summoners/Summons Counted?

  • Summoners count as one Operator with regards to Team Building (i.e. the screen before starting the stage).
  • Summoners and their summons count as one Operator each in terms of Deployment (i.e. Mayer and 2 Miibos count as 3 units towards deployment.
  • Drones (like from Silence) do not count as summons, and deploying them does not count as using active skills.
  • Deploying summons also do not count as using active skills, but using the summoner's active skills (i.e Mayer's Detonate and Recyle) does.
  • Deploying summons again after using a skill to recall them counts as redeploying the summon.
  • Summons that count as melee are banned if the no melee risk is taken.  This includes Deepcolor's Tentacles, Mayer's Meebos, and Magellan's Drones if she is using S1 or S2 (S3 is ranged).  Likewise, melee deployables, like Nightingale's Phantom, are unable to be deployed, but Silence's Drone, which is "ranged", is deployable.

Clarification on Autopilot 

  • Operators with Manual Skills equipped are allowed to be deployed, but cannot use their skills.  

Clarifications on Masochism

  • Do the tiles Ballistas hit count as hazards even before they show up? The tile would still count as a hazard tile from the start, just not yet activated.
  • Hazards that result from enemies, such as the Frost drone, do not count towards Masochism.
  • Healing runes do not count as stage hazards since they heal your Operators.  Unless you count free healthcare for your operators as a hazard to your pharmaceutical monopoly.  You monster.

Clarification on Team Theme Factions

  • The entire team must consist of one faction (i.e. a full team of Rhine Lab members)
  • The Contract does not require that all members of the faction be present.

Content Creators 

I'm a Content Creator and think this is cool.  Can I get in on making a challenge?

  • Sure!  Message me at Hakurai#1379 on Discord and we can start!  Do note we define content creators to be someone who has consistently created content for Arknights and gathered a regular following (roughly 2k Youtube followers).  If you create content on different platforms, let me know and we can check it out.  

What if I want to make challenges but am not a large content creator?

  • Don't worry, we are working on a way to host community challenge creation as well, for those who are excited by the challenge and want to create their own!
