In this challenge, you will have to contend with the lava hazards, and hordes of dangerous enemies everywhere! Since Kat is starting this challenge at around 20% health, be mindful of the Malloid near the start of the course. Around checkpoint 4 is where you'll grab two vitality gems, so you can take more risks after that. The Malloids, Eckirays, and Minayes are ones to watch out for; Malloids will follow you for considerable distances when engaged, and Minayes need to be approached with a wide berth so you don't take damage from them and cost you precious time. Also, try not to let your gravity gauge run out in the fire tunnels, since that will not only cost you valuable time, but the fire causes a lot of damage to Kat, so grab any Gravity Gems within reach.
Don't be bother with the enemies in this challenge; the time limit for the gold is incredibly tight even with the recommended upgrades listed above, and fighting them would just waste time. Just avoid all fire hazards and enemies as you glide through each of the 32 checkpoints throughout the rift plane using a mix of Gravity Slide and Speed Shifting. Even with the upgrades, you may only get within seconds of that gold target even if you're a skilled player. This challenge may take more than one attempt, so practice first to get a feel for the course.
