  • Only the hanging totems count for this challenge (and not, for example, the "scarecrow" standing ones).
  • Whether by bug or design, the hanging totems cannot be ignited while one or more of the Incinerator Clayton missions are active. Once the mission Cult Foillowing: The Enkindling is taken, it must be completed before the hanging totems can be ignited to complete this challenge. Other missions in the Cult Following series may also interfere with completing this challenge.
