Daily challenges is a special challenge which is comprised of a random set of predefined rules. It's accessible like every other challenge from the list of challenges in the Portal screen if the player has reached zone 100 at least once, ever.
Each day spawns a new challenge with a different set of rules randomly generated from a pool of rules. The challenges do not have a specific end point, instead, they end where the player chooses for them to end. Completing a daily challenge will increase Helium earned by a multiplier which is also generated, and depends on the difficulty of the rules the challenge is made out of. This makes all daily challenges Helium challenges.
When daily challenges are unlocked, a new button will appear in the list of challenge called Daily. Clicking it will select the challenge of the specific day. The player is also allowed to run the challenge of the previous day by clicking the "Go To Yesterday" button, assuming it hasn't been completed already.
Once started, the player can spend as long as they want on the challenge itself. You do not have to finish the challenge before the time at which the next daily challenge is rolled. If you start a challenge on Monday and finish it on Wednesday, the Tuesday and Wednesday challenges will now be accessible to you. This means there is a maximum possible buffer of having three daily challenges at once.
When in a daily challenge, the Abandon challenge function is replaced with the Finish daily function. Each daily challenge can only be started once.
The challenge ends either when the player uses the Finish daily button or if they Portal. Using the button will allow the player to spend the helium earned in the run and the bonus helium in the Portal screen. Using the Portal without finishing the challenge first only lets the player spend the base helium on Perks, and then the bonus helium can be spent later in the View Perks menu.
The game uses UTC time to determine when a new day starts.
When finished, either manually or by using the Portal, a daily challenge will give an amount of helium which depends on its multiplier and the amount of Helium the player has earned in the run. Like with other helium challenges, helium spent on Wormholes does not lower the final bonus helium gained from completing the challenge.
The bonus helium from any Daily challenge will not count towards the Bone Trader's Portal purchase. However, the base helium still applies. For example, if you earn 8M helium before finishing the challenge and gain 22M bonus from finishing it for a total of 30M helium, only 8M helium will be counted towards the Bone Portal.
Each daily challenge includes a variety of randomly generated rules. The number of rules that can appear at once is technically constrained, however there is no hard cap.

Every daily challenge rolls for a list of random modifiers using various factors. The generator aims to pick a selection of mods for a total weight between 2.0 - 5.0, and is allowed a 0.5 margin of error. It can also occasionally roll beyond 5.5.
Note that this range is not a linear distribution. The generator generally aims to fill the challenge with at least a large and a medium sized modifier, meaning it will rarely end up with a low total weight value.
The total weight value directly corresponds to the final helium reward, and is the result of the following calculation:
75 * weight + 20
Below is a table of select weights and their corresponding helium rewards.
|Weight||Bonus Helium %|
- When introduced, contrary to other helium challenges, the bonus helium gained from completing a daily challenge would not count helium spent on Wormholes, instead, it would multiply the current helium number earned in the run. This was later changed to instead work like other helium challenges.
- Daily challenges were added in patch 3.8.
