How to find and kill Vanguard and Warzone Elf

Elf in Vanguard Festive Fervor

Elves are running around in both Caldera and the Multiplayer maps for Vanguard. They can be found in various locations but are most easily found by simply listening for their distinct laugh.

Typically, an Elf will be found in corners, on top of objects, and various other spots. Players will be able to hear the laugh if they are within a 10-meter range of an Elf. All you need to do to complete the challenge of killing 10 of these mischievous creatures is shoot them.

In Warzone and Vanguard, once players kill an Elf a ticking noise will countdown the time in which you will need to find another one. Keep finding and shooting these Elves until you kill the final one, which should total 10.
