    Credit to Lambstein (Xbox One TA guide) and vSully (Xbox 360 TA guide) for their guides that gave me a headstart on this one.

    First: Not all challenges are available immediately and are first listed as (undiscovered), only becoming available after meeting certain requirements in other related challenges; however any progress you did for it while it was hidden DOES get recorded properly.
    Second: NOT ALL CHALLENGES APPLY. Any Location-based Challenges and any DLC-related Challenges DO NOT APPLY. All you have to do are the non-location, base-game Challenges.

    Most of the challenges are self-explanatory. Here is the list of the level 1 requirement for each (which is all you need, other than the two that must hit level 5 to unlock related Challenges) . Any that are unlocked have an asterisk (*), and if I know the unlock requirement that detail is included under the challenge. Most don't have the actual description, but that means I got them over time before I started keeping track anyways, so it's a good chance you won't have to work at it either. It seems all but two challenges are unlocked by clearing just the first level of another related challenge.

    Also, sorry they aren't in a particular order... it seems like they change order sometimes? I dunno.

    Low Gravity
    Boosted: Perform 50 air boosts
    Slampage!: Kill 5 enemies with slam attacks
    Death from Above: Kill 50 enemies wile in the air
    Eagle Eye: Get 50 critical hits while in the air
    Dragon Punch: Deal 5000 melee damage while in the air
    Roger Slamjet: Deal 2000 damage with slam attacks

    Greater Than the Sum of its Parts: Obtain 20 Luneshine weapons from the Grinder (Only available via Moonstone Grind)
    This Time for Sure: Perform 10 Moonstone grinds
    The Daily Grind: Perform 50 standard grinds
    Master Chef: Discover 2 grinder recipes

    -------Grinder Notes-------
    -Moonstone Grinds have different costs, based on weapon rarity+Unique+recipe (for White, Green, and Blue: either 2+ of the same kind or 3 different).
    --White: 49
    --Green: 49/75
    --Blue: 49/56/62/112
    -- 2 Purple+1 Legendary: ?? (I could get the option to appear, but not usable for some reason)
    --(I've also seen a 169 cost, but forgot to record what the recipe was)

    -The recipe challenge is easy, they are just any different combination of stuff you toss in (if curious, check the wiki:

    -Luneshine seems to have about a 50% chance of happening, so it may take around 40 Moonstone Grinds to accomplish. That is a minimum moonstones of 980 (100% Luneshine), 1960 (50% Luneshine), or more if you have worse luck. And that's if you limit your Moonstone Grinds to costs of 49 each time.
