Scattered around Octane’s Gauntlet, you’ll find supplies including armor, weapons, and ammo. Grab everything you need, then head towards one of the upper tower areas located on the left and right sides of the track.
There, you’ll be able to slide down a ramp and launch yourself through the flaming ring in the center of Octane’s Gauntlet.
Note that the challenge won’t immediately update and indicate completion. Instead, you’ll need to finish the match before you see the "Challenge Completed" screen as shown above.
