Air Raid is a recurring challenge on Survivor. It debuted in Survivor: Worlds Apart and has since re-appeared in Cambodia and Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers.


One at a time, members of each tribe must race up a tower and through a series of obstacles. Once they have made it to the top of the tower, they will each take turns launching sandbags with a giant slingshot, with each member being required to launch at least once, attempting to hit targets out in a field. After a target is hit, tribes are required to switch out members. The first tribe to hit all six targets would win.


In Worlds Apart, though Escameca was first to the top of their tower, Nagarote came from behind to narrowly win the challenge, winning beef stew feast and hot chocolate while watching sea turtles lay eggs.

The challenge was used again on Cambodia. Though all three tribes were relatively equal early in the challenge, Stephen Fishbach's gaffe for Bayon ultimately handed the win to Angkor. Despite Spencer Bledsoe's efforts to salvage his tribe's situation, it was of no use, as Keith Nale won for Ta Keo, sending Bayon to Tribal Council for the first time.

In Heroes vs. Healers vs. Hustlers, Joe Mena drew the white rock and did not have to compete, automatically earning a spot on the reward. Although the red team set out on an early lead, Ashley Nolan had difficulty hitting a target, allowing the blue team of Chrissy Hofbeck, Cole Medders, Devon Pinto, JP Hilsabeck, and Ryan Ulrich to come from behind and join Joe on the reward.
