30th November – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

I’ve seen a few people being annoyed at the lack of multiplayer challenges in the last week, so today should help. It’s funny that the first one will be the hardest/longest to get…

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2000 cR

If you’re working for the weekly then add this to your kills from yesterday in multiplayer. If you want to do it fast, mix up Gruntpocalypse, Score Attack and Campaign to get through the kill volume quickly. Chances are you’ll only end up with 60-80 kills from the other challenges, so I think Gruntpoc on Corvette sounds like a good way to go.

T-Hug It Out – Kill 4 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1100 cR

Close Quarters is a kill using melee, assassination, Shotgun, Energy Sword and Hammer. I’d be interested in hearing if Infection works, as that’s all CQC. If not, then somewhere like Sword Base, Countdown and Reflection give you the Sword, Powerhouse sometimes the Hammer and Asylum the Shotgun. I tend to melee a lot anyway so this should come in one game. Team SWAT’s pretty good for it as melee can be one hit kills.

Double Double – Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking – 1350 cR

I don’t think a triple kill (or Overkill) will count as two doubles, I think you’ll have to actually get two. Crazy King, Oddball or any Multi Team with enclosed spaces (Reflection and Countdown come to mind) are useful so you can easily see and shoot two dudes in the same space. Heavy Weapons like the Rocket Launcher, or grenades, will be very useful. I’m thinking of the top long corridor on Reflection Elite Slayer as being a useful place to get this. I wonder if I can get it along with the CQ challenge above?

Participation Counts – Complete 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR

Complete 3 games. Don’t drop out. Get to the end of each. Just play through them. Doesn’t matter if you win or lose. Sorry, I can’t drag out this explanation any further. Is there a way of doing this quickly? Infection is a very fast game type so you’ll probably get it done in 10 minutes using that.

A total of 5750 credits for about 30 minutes game time is a nice return, and gives you something towards your weekly total. Hurrah.

    I think Infection works for close combat kills. I remember using it as an option for a previous challenge.

    Infection worked – did it tonight. Looks like today’s challenges were multiplayer heavy to tie-in with Noble Map Pack release.
