Weird icon in task list

Hi everyone. I've just noticed an icon in my task list that I haven't seen before.

It looks like a cardboard box with a number 1 on it and when I tap on the icon, the lid comes off and inside is a donut, a gold statue and a pill for the SH consumables.

Any idea what this is??

  • The box holds some of your tasks, yet to be completed, you have not been doing for a while. Just to make your tasklist a little more viewable.

    Tasks you ignore for some time (weeks?) Go into the box.

  • This comes up every few weeks. There should be a sticky at the top explaining stuff like this for new players

  • Yep, that's the same one. I usually clear my tasks as soon as they come up but I've been leaving a lot of them to concentrate on getting intel. Thanks for clearing that up. And @Jonalinn , I was just going to post a couple of screenshots but @frosted1414 beat me to it!

    I'm happy you found an answer :) I thought it might be the task box icon, but I was sooo sleepy when I replied to your post, I thought I better ask for a screenshot first :D

    When they first introduced that box there was in game dialogue explaining it I thought. Did they take that out for new players?
  • I'm not a new player - I've been playing since just before whacking day. :smile:

    Like I said before, I don't normally let my tasks build up so I've never seen that box before, but I haven't done any of this events character tasks as they're all collecting intel permanently.

    But no, I don't recall seeing any dialogue explaining what this box meant. (That doesn't mean there wasn't any dialogue though, I may have skipped it!)

    No it's still there. At least it was 2 months ago when I had it come up in my crawl town. It only explains it when it first apoears, and the box comes and goes as it is needed. So its possible that it was explained, but it was a while ago and op forgot about it or missed it.
