Reach Weekly Challenge Commentary – w/c 17th January

Multiplicative – Earn 200 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking this week – 7000 cR

Hopefully everyone will be a little happier both with the scope of this challenge and the reward. This is actually fairly easy to get I reckon. My usual tips apply here – go for Team SWAT or Multi Team to get a good chance of quick kills (SWAT because you can kill in 1 shot to speed up the kill, Multi Team because people group together).

I found out yesterday that Juggernaut is excellent for this, since everyone rushes you but it’s easy to kill them. I managed to get an Overkill on Countdown (and my last Noble Team avatar helmet) by becoming Juggernaut then running to the bottom of the stairs. Loads of guys ran to me to take me out, but because they couldn’t see me had to come close, at which point they got a hammer to the face!

For SWAT and Multi-Team, some maps help better than others, my favourites are:

Sword Base – On SWAT you can hold the killing area at the top of green lift and take out a team as the rush you from any direction. On Multi Team if the top of that lift becomes a killing zone through some grenades in it then follow them up to mop up.

Pinnacle – Since you can see across the map you can hit two people even if they’re in different areas. The room and loft also help contain people to use the Rocket Launcher or Grenades on them.

Asylum – Similar to Pinnacle, but this is even better for sniping people who run across your field of vision.

Countdown – A nice killing area at the top of the lifts, Multi Team is good for this because everyone comes from different directions so you can steal kills and take out the person who was shooting as well. You might get a couple at the beginning if you go to shoot your opponents on the opposite side of the atrium.

Reflection – Again some nice killing areas at the top of the lift and along the long corridor.

I know there are more maps, but these are the ones where I think you’ve got a good chance of getting multikills.

And finally, don’t forget the multikills will stack. So an Overkill (4 enemies) will count as 3 for the double, triple and Overkill.

    So yesterday (Jan. 18th) I went from 58 multikills for the weekly to 200 in 4 hours. How? Grifball. It is back, and you can really rack up those multikills as long as you don’t get several lagged games in a row. Just remember that the distancing with the gravity hammer is different than Halo 3, so you will need practice games.
