Game Pass Quests Not Working: Reasons 

How To Squeeze The Most Points Out Of Xbox Game Pass Quests

No Tasks Completed

To increase your points in Game Pass, you need to meet the objectives set for the day, week, or monthly. Failure to complete the said tasks will stagnate your points in Game Pass Quests.

Outdated Game Version

Users who played old versions of Game Pass have always complained about Game Pass Quests not working. The solution to them is to update their game to the latest version, most bugs are fixed by developers in the latest versions

Corrupt User Data

At times, you may notice Game Pass Quests not working on your device but when a friend drops by and uses your computer/console, the issue disappears. This means that your device is not the source of the problem but rather your user account. You will have to create another account to solve this.

What Must Be Done

For daily quests to be updated in Game Pass, you will need to check it after the end of 24 hours. If you completed an objective at around 0500 hours, you will have to check at the same time as the next day. If you log in before the time elapses, you will find that there is no progress. 


Check Out The Internet Connection

A poor internet connection may cause a delay in updating daily or weekly rewards. Troubleshoot your internet connection and fix any possible issue to enjoy all Game Pass services. Check the manufacturer’s recommended speed of connection and check if yours meets it. Wired network is never weighed down by any unnecessary traffic hence it is recommended.

Switch Account

If your user account data has been corrupted, you will have to try another user account and see if the problem can be solved. 

To create another user account on Xbox One:

  • Step 1: Log out from the existing account then select Sign In.
  • Step 2: Enter the email address you want to use for your account.
  • Step 3: Enter the password you want to use for your account.  
  • Step 4: Use the drop-downs to select your Country/region and set your Birthdate.
  • Step 5: Check your email for a verification code from Microsoft. Enter the code and select Next.


Rebooting your device should be the first option whenever you experience Game Pass Quests not working. Rebooting your device will enable it to solve background processes causing a decrease in the speed of applications that are still running, it will shut down browsers that are using up too much memory, and also reconnect to networks that are being interfered with.

To perform a reboot on your Xbox One:

  • Step 1: Turn off the Xbox One console by pressing the Xbox button on the console for 10 seconds until it shuts down completely
  • Step 2: Unplug the console’s Power Cable
  • Step 3: Wait for at least 10 seconds to ensure that the power supply is reset too
  • Step 4: Press the Xbox button on the console 4-5 times to make sure that the battery is drained
  • Step 5: Plug the Power Cable and any other necessary cords back into the console
  • Step 6: Wait for the light on the power brick to change from white to orange
  • Step 7: Press the Xbox button on the console to turn on the Xbox One

Note: Rebooting does not clear data from your device

Hard Resetting

Resetting your device erases all data and accounts and takes the console to its factory settings and should be considered as the last option. Before performing a reset, ensure that you have saved your data in a disk drive or uploaded them to the cloud.

To hard reset the Xbox One console:

  • Step 1: Press the Xbox button to open the guide.
  • Step 2: Select Profile & system then click Settings 
  • Step 3: Select System then Console info.
  • Step 4: Select Reset console, when you click this, you will see three options:

Option 1: Reset and remove everything. This option resets the console to factory settings. All user data, including accounts, saved games, settings, home Xbox associations, and all games and apps will be deleted.

Option 2: Reset and keep my games & apps. This option resets the operating system and deletes all potentially corrupted data without deleting your games or apps.

Option 3: Cancel. To back out of this screen, simply select the Cancel button. No action has been taken at this point.
