9th December – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Firefight Thursday is back folks. And should be pretty easy to pick up.

One Spartan Army – Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 2000 cR

You get 120 Grunts in Gruntpocalypse, about 100 enemies in Score Attack and something like 330 in a Firefight Matchmaking game (although split between up to 4 people). I recommend going with Firefight Matchmaking for this so you can pick up the other challenges, particularly the assists. Then, if you only need more kills (and maybe the last challenge for Supercombines) jump into a Score Attack/Gruntpoc game to finish off quickly.

Supporting Role – Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1100 cR

Any of the Matchmaking variants will work well here, particularly Rocketfight or Sniperfight. If you can buddy up to do this you’ll get it quicker rather than just playing and hoping, plus you can reciprocate to the other person too. Don’t forget an assist is 40% or more damage to an enemy that is killed within 4 seconds by someone else.

Points, Points – Score 20,000 points in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 2500 cR

This is so easy. You’re pretty much guaranteed it on Matchmaking. I played a Score Attack on Beachhead the other day that got me more than 20,000 points so you can do it there too.

That Pink Mist – Kill 20 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking – 1650 cR

This will be available in any game mode. Score Attack’s a good one – the second wave is Jackals, some of whom carry Needle Rifles. The third wave is Brutes, and three NR shots into an unshielded Brute (or any unshielded opponent) kills them with a Supercombine. You can also pick up the Needler itself to take on the Grunts, Jackals and Skirmishers. You could try on the Elites but they are double hard and particularly violent towards you!

So there you go. I reckon this is about 45-60 minutes of play for over 6000 credits which is nice. Although it’s interesting on the One Spartan Army – when this is 250 kills you get 2500 credits – I wonder if that’s because 400 (or just over) is possibly an easier amount to hit with quick Gruntpoc/SA games, where as you can’t get just over 250 with those types so you have to mix it up more? Oh well, it’s still good credits and commendations.

    geez…firefight much. Well, at least I don’t have to count on someone else tonight to get these. Seemed like every game I got last night trying to get the 75 kills and multi kills was full of dorks just playing around while the other team slaughtered us. When I lead a team in kills on a bad game for me and I’m the lowest rank…it’s just sad. I gave up on the multi-kill challenge yesterday…I got up to 15, but was sick of losing.
