9th January – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Another nice mix of challenges, although less easy that I’d hoped they’d be…

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2500 cR

You probably won’t get all these kills in the other challenges, but you can get close to it with them, so to finish off either jump in a Score Attack/Gruntpocalypse match or the end of Winter Contingency.

Office of Not Dying – Complete ONI on Legendary without dying – 4000 cR

These can be fairly hard to do,the main comment as always is that if you play co-op you can help cover each other, but if you die please remember you’ll be appreciated more if you stay in the game and help everyone else by being the guy who goes in and takes on the fire for everyone else. Be a force for good in the Halo community. Don’t forget that the best way to take out an Elite is to fire an overcharged Plasma Pistol into them to strip away the shields then switch to DMR and headshot them. As a last resort – if you die, then quit the mission and reload at last checkpoint, you’ll be back where you were with the game thinking you haven’t died. So it is possible to play through on Legendary accepting that you will die, then at the very last checkpoint load the mission and it gives you the challenge. If you’re that kind of person.

J.H. Death Machine – Kill 20 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher – 1500 cR

I’m saying Score Attack for this one, and in a change from normal go do it on Holdout. One of the loadouts is the Grenade Launcher, so grab that and go nuts. The waves are Grunts, Jackals, Brutes, Skirmishers and finally an Elite Death Squad. I like staying in the lower area since you get better splash damage from the grenades and it acts as more of a bottle neck.

Heroic Holdout – Kill 50 enemies in Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

As above, jump into Score Attack where you get 100 enemies thrown at you. Once you’ve got the Grenade Launcher challenge above then switch to whatever weapon works best – see this post for info on Score Attack kills.

I’m off to get the weekly, then maybe try doing some work on setting up Swords v Snipers – if you have any thoughts on that game type let me know.

    prob the only day i’m going to skip a challenge, and that’s the ONI one.

      I agree. Although it’s tempting, for the time invested you would easily be able to get more credits just playing multiplayer. ONI is a tough level for that challenge – I would definitely do it on Nightfall though.

    Did all but the ONI one. Not enough credits for the time. The rest were fun tho! I never use the gernade launcher really so now I know why.

      haha, i was thinking that too “why do i never use the gren launcher ? oh yeah, cos it’s bloody awkward to kill anything with it !”
