3rd December – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

More multiplayer for everyone today. If you’ve got the Noble Map Pack, let everyone know if these challenges are even easier on them.

More than a Handful – Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1250 cR

I expect a lot of people will get most of the way to this with the last challenge today. If not, keep on with multiplayer in Multi Team variants like Crazy King for lots of kills.

Single Wield – Earn 30 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1250 cR

Ignore what it says on Bungie.net, it’s 30 according to the total bar. Team SWAT – Magnums will be a good way of doing this. The Plasma Pistol also counts as Small Arms, so think about using that to take guys down, it’s good for stripping away shields, but the Magnum is better for unshielded guys. Infection might be good too – you can snipe the zombies using your pistol and get a few kills that way, esp in Cage, Courtyard  or Pinnacle where you can see Zs coming.

Vengeance Found – Earn your ‘Revenge’ in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1150 cR

Revenge is when you kill the guy who killed you. Chances are you’ll pick this up naturally. That said, there are some maps that seem to make it easier, particularly ones where you can get back to someone really quickly. Team SWAT on Asylum’s good because you can snipe the guy who took you out from afar. I like Countdown because the high platform by the jets and ramps is always a killing zone that’s easy to get to and you’ll often find your killer there. Again Infection might be good if you’re the zombie and you get shot by a human and can then take them out.

Five-time Champ – Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2750 cR

Team Slayer and SWAT will be excellent for this, as there are only two teams so a much better chance of winning than in multi team. If you are doing Multi Team, try objective based types and go for the objective itself, most teams don’t. I mean Crazy King, Oddball, Rocket Race.

If you didn’t read it yesterday, have a look at my Challenge Names 101 and see if you can help. Plus use the links on the side to look up the weekly challenge, or my Twitter account and the site’s Facebook page to get further updates and thoughts on the challenges.

    Just a little confused… For “More than a Handful”, why go to Winter Contingency Rally Point Bravo? Thought they were Multi-Player kills, not just kills in Reach? Not sure if I missed something. Thanks.

    Why do I get the feeling that Five-Time Champ is referencing Jimmie “Shittie” Johnson…

    Thanks for the reminder about living death, I was nearly tearing my hair out trying to get SWAT magnums!

      Tearing your hair out? I got it first time! Even then, it’s not like using the Magnum’s a bad thing in SWAT, played a few games of normal SWAT to find people all over using them for the challenge!
