29th October – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

It’s now 30 mins since the challenges were issued, and I have 3 out of the 4, totalling 5000 credits. That’s what we like to see. I’m only 1 rank off the final achievement at Lt Colonel too. Hurrah.

More Than a Handful – Worth chasing this one if you want the weekly challenge too. Multi-Team Battle is a very good way to chase this, in either Crazy King or Slayer variants, as you can rack up big kill volumes in each game. Beware though that you might end up in a Rocket Race variant, where you might not get any kills. That risk will probably diminish this evening as more people come online to chase this challenge. If you don’t want to take that risk, stick to something you like, probably Team Slayer or SWAT and grind away.

Covenant-cide – Yawn. See the last challenge for how to get this in 10 mins.

A Side of Huevos – Easy peasy, especially on Normal difficulty. You get 50 something bullets, so just go through and headshot everything you can. Note it is only the Sniper Rifle you can use to get the challenge. I played through to the end of the first camp (before the big creatures), then restarted the mission and got everything next time around. Don’t forget that Grunt’s heads are slightly lower than the tanks on their backs and forward.

The House of Blue Leaves – Gruntpocalypse. Corvette. 10 mins. Done. You get 120 enemies to kill in a round, so you should hit this no problem. There’s no limitation on weapon or headshots, or staying alive, so have at it and get this done. Even if you’re busy on Friday you must be able to squeeze in 10 minutes to get a few 3500 cR in challenges.

And there we go, nice of Bungie to make this so easy on us. Have a great weekend folks.

    An easy way to get the sniper challenge is to start, headshot the first elite then revert to saved. Then repeat this. Bit boring but you’ll be able to get back to the weekly challenge quicker….

    For some reason that first elite doesn’t trigger a checkpoint for me

    I got lucky and had a checkpoint literally on a grunt’s head
