Week eight of The International 2022 battle pass might be the easiest week to speedrun so far.

Week eight is a special time for the current battle pass, as players get to enjoy the new set of missions while also watching The International 2022 itself. Valve wants players to have plenty of free time to tune in, so this week’s stars are relatively easy to obtain. Here’s our guide to clearing every week eight mission in The International 2022 battle pass.

Play Yourself Out

The first mission is nothing special this week, which should be no surprise for Dota 2 grinders. 15 matches is a lot of games for a week, but avid players can knock out the majority of matches in a few long sessions. Eight is a much more reasonable number and still grants two stars, so make it for it by fully completing another mission instead. 


Carry players can carve through hundreds of creeps in a single game, so 1,500 may not seem like a tall order for them. As for support, this can seem like an insurmountable challenge. Flash farmers who can quickly take stacks like Medusa, Gyrocopter, or Juggernaut are the obvious options. Prioritize the main jungle and don’t be afraid to teleport for a massive wave. Luckily for everyone, this mission tracks across multiple games.

Actually Do Stuff

Just like Creepslaughter is tuned for carries, this mission is for the support mains. Actually Do Stuff requires players to win one, three, and five games as a support hero. However, Dota 2’s internal definition of a support hero is a little different than most players. Lina, Naga Siren, Alchemist, Wraith King, and many more can all qualify to complete this challenge. Head to the heroes tab and sort by support to see the full list of “supports” that work this challenge.

In The Arcane Gang

160,000 magic damage is a tall order, but The International 2022 battle pass devotees will need to dish it out to earn stars in week eight. The first star is just 15,000 which can be accomplished in a single game with a heavy nuker like Zeus or a damage hose like Leshrac. Venomancer is another excellent choice, as damage dealt post-mortem still applies to the mission.

Give Them A Minute

Stunning enemy heroes is fun, and disabling enemies for 300 seconds is actually a lot easier than it sounds. Area stuns like Centaur Warrunner’s Hoof Stomp or Tidehunter’s Ravage multiply their stun duration by the number of targets hit. A three-man Hoof Stomp counts as 13 seconds, so pick an initiator and pick your targets to get this mission done quickly.

High Fives Are Universal

If you notice your teammates being extra friendly this week, don’t take it too personally. High Fives Are Universal grants three stars for players high-fiving each other 45 times. This mission only tracks slaps from winning games, so spam it at the end of successful matches to advance this mission while also creating a celebratory atmosphere.
