7th January – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

More easy ones to help on the weekly, although the FF one is a bit of a pain…

Gunslinger – Kill 100 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Multi-Team battle is the place to go for lots of kills, as long as you avoid the Rocket Race variant. Crazy King and Oddball help get a high number of kills if you aren’t interested in the objective.

I Need Some Ammo – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Famine skull on – 2000 cR

There are two ways of doing this, either play through normally, which shouldn’t be too hard, just takes a while, or try a mission you can skip lots of. If you’re playing through, a mission with vehicles will help as they have unlimited ammo (although avoid Long Night of Solace because the Corvette section can be a pain with limited ammo). If you’re running it, Winter Contingency, ONI: Sword Base or Nightfall work really well. The only dudes you’ll really have a problem with are the Hunters in Nightfall, so get good at melee hits from behind them, most other guys you can skip (and again if you can grab a Wraith you’re good for half the mission – snipe the gunner and jump in to make the driver jump out). See my previous post on Nightfall running for help, hopefully you start with the same amount of ammo so it’s easy. Some people use Sprint, I use Active Camo, it’s up to you what you prefer really.

Orbital Assists – Kill 20 enemies using the Target Designator in Firefight Matchmaking – 1750 cR

My advice doesn’t change from the first time we had this challenge, sprint to the Ordnance dropped in FF, hope it’s the Target Designator and use it on the drop ships. I got 15 where I didn’t think I had, so I’d be interested if anyone notices something strange with it today.

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

Double Kills are fairly easy to pick up. Multi Team will usually see you get 3 or 4, as you naturally get more people, closer together. Grenades and Heavy Weapons are your friend here. Team SWAT can also be good for this. If you’re good at headshot you’ll pick up a double kill or two during a match, depending on the map and opposition – Sword Base is good for it if you can hold the top of the green lift.

More of you should be picking up the weekly today. I started yesterday so I’m hoping the challenges stay easy this weekend!

    Just run Nightfall and use the forklift trick to avoid the hunters! 5 mins!

      Agree!! Although I am not great at the forklift trick since it usually takes me a few tries, it really saves time (and effort) without dealing with the hunters and also the enemies on the rest of the level.

      Those not sure what the forklift trick is may use YouTube to see. Basically when you cross the bridge to fight at the base after which you get a large gate to open, you simply hop in the forklift at the end of the bridge and drive it to the gate on the left. Position yourself with the gate on your left halfway along the gate and when you exit the forklift at the right spot you will be “pushed” through the closed gate and can run free through the rest of the level with no enemies.

    Can ‘I Need Some Ammo’ be done cooperatively?

    • JXibalba says:

      I am almost certain that it can be done in co-op as I have done some of the previous challenges requiring a campaign level and skulls in co-op mode. It is quite easy though to do a quick run-through on Winter Contingency or Nightfall. Use YouTube for video tips on running through those levels.

      • Russ says:

        Yeah, all the challenges can be run co-op :] I do it frequently with my brother to boost him.

    I think I’ll only do a couple of these if any. I got the 16 done last night and hit a jackpot of 3000 on the same firefight game last night…I got 24K in 1 game! it was sweet! Just hit Colonel Grade 3 last night and it’s 200K+ credits to Brig, so no big hurry. Maybe time to try some Black Ops finally – got it for Christmas and it hasn’t even been put in the drive yet.
