A quest's story is divided into parts that get unlocked on a weekly basis. For "The Broken Ghost", the story is told through on-screen text with each part having a different narrator. For the later quests, the story is told through comics done by Dark Horse Comics. Completing the quest's story will reward the player with an Epic weapon skin and a Legendary Charm. Quests returned to on-screen text upon "Trouble in Paradise".
Quests sometimes come with PvE missions. So far, the only quest that has them is "The Broken Ghost".
Quests also serve as a login bonus. Once per day, players can collect a Treasure Pack from a random supply bin.

Each of the current quests have continuations or side stories that are not found in the game; they are comics that are posted on the official Twitter account. Instead of Dark Horse Comics, these comics were done by artists from the community. The comics are still canon since they were officially commissioned by Respawn Entertainment.
According to the writer Tom Casiello, some of the reasons they do this include the following:
- It allow artists to be experimental and play with panel size/shape/layout. There are many restrictions placed on the in-game comics, such as limits to the number of panels or being limited to only rectangular panels. It also minimizes scrutiny on the artist.
- It prevents spoilers from dataminers, since the Twitter comics cannot be found in the game. This is Tom Casiello's personal favorite reason.
