Zurkie’s Cup Rewards

The rewards for each cup vary, as each one has five separate courses that each have their own reward, resulting in fifteen separate courses overall. In most cases the reward is bolts (with more bolts for harder courses) but players can also earn Gold Bolts, Spybots and Costume pieces for doing so, meaning that those who are looking to complete their collectables collection need to become masters of the Slaughterplex.

Speaking of which, if you’re looking for the full compilation of collectables in Rift Apart, you should try looking for all the Gold Bolts, which we’ve got outlined here. Or check out where to find all the Spybots at our guide here.
