18th October – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

We’ve got an interesting mix today, and sadly not too many points. I wonder if Bungie are counting on players getting the weekly challenge today to help make up the total. My thoughts on those today are:

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – This will come if you try pretty much any 1 or 2 of the other challenges, especially the next one…

Covenant-cide – If you try this through Firefight Matchmaking you’re looking at 3 or 4 games worth, but if you go for Score Attack and Gruntpocalypse you’ll be through it in one game, pretty quickly. The other bonus here is that you’ll up your commendations with headshots, small weapons (if you’re so inclined), sprees, multikills, class kills and probably more. As always, a small map like Corvette will really speed things up.

Streaky Shooter – I’m trusting that this can be achieved in different games. I’m not looking forward to this, as I’m not good at getting sprees. Active Camo will help you out if you want to take a time out to recharge shields before re-entering the fray. A closed off map where it’s easy to hide from sight will help, something like Countdown or Sword Base.

Cook ’em, Clean ’em – Remember, you have to be firing the jetpack as you kill someone. Even if you just hit it for a split second when you fire the killing shot, it’ll count. I expect lots of people mini-jumping trying for this.

Weekly Challenge – Like Mike – 30 kills, 1 game. Sounds tricky, although a lot of people say that this is easy in Invasion/Oddball type games. That might well be true, and I’ve not seen anyone saying they can’t be done. I figure Oddball will work well as you just take out guys who aren’t carrying the ball and hunting after it. I’ve done 30 kills once ever in Team Slayer/SWAT type games, so I’m definitely not going to be trying for it there!

    I have found the best way would be multi-team but make sure you and your friend can communicate well other wise you will be up a creek with you booth at 24 kills and can’t get it.
