18th November – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Firefight Thursday is here again.

One Spartan Army – If you’re efficient you might not get here in the other challenges, but chances are you will. If it comes to it just run through a Gruntpocalypse or Score Attack to up your commendations too.

Support Structure – Assists are slightly harder on Firefight I think (deal 40% damage and someone else kills them within 4 seconds). My recommendation is to play Courtyard, as you tend to stick together in the entrance to the spawn room so you’re more likely to help assist and get assists from your team mates, whereas you spread out on other maps.

Blast Radius – Again Courtyard is good, turn right out of the spawn room and go to the end where you’re covered from dropships, and throw grenades down particularly where the Grunts are dropped. Alternatively, Corvette in Firefight, Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse as you can stay on high and throw grenades where enemies spawn/come in on dropships.

That Pink Mist – With a Needler you need to fire up to half a clip to get a Supercombine (where all the Needles combine to explode, you’ll know it when you see it), whereas with a Needle Rifle you only need to hit an unshielded enemy with three. Careful with the Rifle as you can get headshots – a Unicorn I believe it’s called – so aim for the body. My thoughts on this are to try Score Attack, when the second wave of Jackals turn up take out the Rifle carriers and grab the weapon. Then gear up to take the Brutes out with 3 shots to the body each. This is much easier when you get the Brutes coming towards you in the tunnel by the spawn room.

I’m not adding polls today, see the last two days where I’m interested in finding out how you folks read the site and where you’re reading it from.

    the easiest way to get the supercombine needler challenge is to play firefight, and pick either rocket or sniperfight. then kill a grunt with a needler and pick it up. You will have unlimited ammo in these gametypes. Let the pink mist fly

      That, or while doing the grenade kills, do Gruntpocalypse. Grenade your kills, swap the pistol for a Needler, and voila. The Pink Mist goes everywhere. Should have more rounds than you’ll ever need.

    Easiest way to get 30 assists in Firefight is to concentrate fire on the dropship guns. Shoot first and get a friend to finish it off 30 times then alternate getting him to shoot first and you getting the kill. About 10 dropships per round = 30 per set so in 2 games of firefight you should have this.

      yeah, I’ve done the dropship assist thing and it worked well. And thanks for the tip on rocket/sniper fight…That will make that easy too on score-attack.
