13th December – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

So fewer credits and an odd mix of challenges today. I’m pleased Bungie are giving high credit returns for the annoying assist challenges now…

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1500 cR

I bet you’ll pick this up quickly in the rest of the challenges, but with any game mode on offer then either stick to multiplayer to get the weekly challenge or go to Score Attack for 100 enemies in 10 minutes.

Secondary Fire – Earn 25 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 4000 cR

I actually found yesterday that doing this in Team Slayer was fairly easy, particularly on Slayer DMR. Since everyone has shields you do 40% damage whilst still going for headshots. This allows your team mates to kill quickly if they’re shooting too, and you stay alive plus get an assist. As ever with an assist challenge, make sure you communicate and stick together. You won’t get an assist if you damage someone but no one else is around to follow up!

Watersports – Kill 50 enemies in Waterfront on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking – 600 cR

Bleugh, Waterfront is a sucky map and 600 is not a lot of credits. This is really easy though, so jump in whatever Firefight variant you enjoy and blast some dudes.

Twin Trips – Earn 2 Triple Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking – 500 cR

Less easy, and really low credit return. Team SWAT is pretty good if you can get a team taken out in one (I enjoy Asylum and Sword Base for this). Equally, Multi Team’s a pretty good bet if you can come into a lot of people taking each other on – the objective modes of Oddball and Crazy King might do you well here, longer matches and a game type that forces people to group more.

Let me know if you have any thoughts on how to achieve these challenges.

    I’m glad I’m not the only person who doesn’t like Waterfront!

    Wow, 500 for two Trips is actually a very bad return, given that depending on the gametype they could be close to impossible compared to the old two Doubles for 1000/1500.

    As for Waterfront, yea it never comes up in normal Matchmaking anymore – or rather everyone votes to skip it if it comes up first, I’d say just running Score Attack until you get it is the only real way to get it.

      I agree, I really surprised by how little for how hard. Even in SWAT, I don’t see many people getting two trips. I usually only manage a few doubles as finding that third is a pain or they hide when they see two others fall.

      Though I am happy the assists are worth a decent amout. Surprised to see it two days in a row. Wonder why that is?

      I always find assists easy to earn in Rumble Pit…it can be a mad house! unless you take control of the shotgun or sword and nothing stands in your way 🙂
