Prototype Challenges are one of the unique event types in Wipeout 2048. It is an event where the player must Pass the event to unlock each of the teams' respective Prototype ship.
A Prototype Challenge node can be unlocked by ranking up, starting from Rank 10, then search for the hidden triangle-shaped node somewhere in the Single Player Campaign event select screen to access it. Each team has its own Prototype ship, meaning there are 5 events corresponding to their ship types. Each event has different modes and tracks:
