How to get Officer Mewmew Medals in Zenless Zone Zero: Mewmew Challenges explained

Officer Mewmew can be found in every city block and, for each one, they will have another set of Mewmew Challenges for you to complete.

There are four different types of Mewmew Challenges for you to complete:

  • Complete City Commissions (side quests found in New Eridu, symbolised by the blue exclamation marks).
  • Find HIA Commemorative Coins (can have two related challenges - one for half of the coins and one for all, like at the Brant Street Construction Site).
  • Find Mini Cargo Trucks, such as the six Lost Cargo Truck locations in Sixth Street.
  • Help or repair Bangboo.

Each Mewmew Challenge comes with a short description which helps you figure out what you need to do to complete it. This can be anything from a location you need to visit to the time of the day the challenge is active during. You may find that a number of Mewmew Challenges will be hidden (symbolised by a question mark). How these unlock depend on the challenge itself - it could occur from continuing with the game's storyline or by completing related Mewmew Challenges.

Some city blocks also have multiple pages of challenges, but to access these you first need to have completed a set amount of Mewmew Challenges and reached a certain place in the story. Unlocking the second challenge page for Sixth Street, for example, requires you to have earned 10 Mewmew medals and completed the Chapter 2 Main Story.

After completing the above, you'll find yourself in a cutscene where your sibling will comment on something strange happening outside of the video store. Going outside will introduce you to Officer Mewmew and this cat has a problem - namely a missing Bangboo with a damaged logic circuit.

Thankfully, the Bangboo isn't too far away as it's sitting behind the newspaper stand opposite your shop. Interact with it and solve the very easy puzzle by turning its transmitters before you're sent into another cutscene with Officer Mewmew.
