20th November – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Woohoo! A credit pile worth getting today.

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – you probably won’t get this in doing the rest, but I got 118 kills in the Campaign challenge, so 2 Gruntpocalypse sessions and some multiplayer did it with no worries.

Just a Shower – Thunderstorm ups the rank of enemies, so Grunts usually have helmets, Elites are smarter and so on. Winter Contingency all the way – my pro tip is to stay in the jeep when you come to the missing Marines. Then drive back and forth taking out the Covvie dudes as they attack the front. You’ll get some commendations and medals too which helps. Once you’re in the base, chuck grenades to take out the initial groups of Jackals and Grunts, then melee the rest. Use the DMR in the ammo wall at the beginning of the section to take out the Grunts in the server room (dunno what it is really) then an overcharged Plasma Pistol shot and DMR headshot to take out the two Elites.

Killagruntjaro! – Easy peasy in Gruntpocalypse on Corvette. Get the DMR, get to the platforms as you come out of the spawn room and take out Grunts as they come through the doors. You’ll probably pick this up in 1 wave, but it’s so easy to snipe two really quickly. If you don’t get to the platform before the all come out on a wave, wait in the tunnel and either snipe what you can see or throw Grenades as they come into the bottleneck.

Chaddlesby’s Justice – I’m not sure what this name is about, I’ve sent a Tweet to 343 and to Bungie to try and find out. It’s a difficult medal to get, as you have to kill the person who killed your team mate within a few seconds of the death. Your best bet is to team up with someone and do each other a favour on the challenge. It’s a shame there’s no assist challenge today, Revenge and assists can often go hand in hand!

Don’t forget to add your vote to the poll, I might well change to doing weekly polls rather than coming up with interesting and exciting things for you to vote on each day!

    On Chaddlesby’s Justice, I’m betting it’s a reference to Chad Armstrong, who left Bungie under mysterious circumstances when Reach launched. The community theorized he was fired, but Bungie never confirmed.
