7th February – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Slightly low credits for a Monday, but these are going to be really easy to get in the next 30 mins…

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1000 cR

100 enemies in any game mode will come however you want to play it. I always recommend Gruntpocalypse for a high kill volume quickly, which is good because…

A Satisfied Thirst – Kill 100 Grunts in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

This just cries out for a quick jaunt into your favourite Gruntpocalypse map. Personal recommendation is for Corvette, so you can use the platforms by the corridors into the spawn room to snipe quickly from. Then if you need to retreat you can do so easily and use the corridor to funnel Grunts down, shooting them as they appear. There’s no requirement for how you kill them, so grenade, Pistol, DMR or melee, whatever seems appropriate.

Triple Thrill – Earn any 3 Sprees in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000 cR

Another new challenge. As I said yesterday,this should apply to any spree, not just kills. So you can get sprees using:

  • Hammer
  • Shotgun
  • Sniper Rifle
  • Plasma Grenade sticks
  • Sword
  • Vehicles (two here – kills in vehicle where you do the killing, and kills as driver with passenger killing)
  • Spartan Laser
  • Assists
  • Some for specific variants of Juggernaut, Invasion and Infection

See the list on Halopedia for everything. What’s easiest to get? Well trying to get 5 kills with a Hammer, Sword or Shotgun nets you two straight away. Through in some Grenade sticks and you’ll be there. Vehicles might be another easy way to do it in Invasion, team up with someone so you can work on your assist levels too.

Not as Clumsy or Random… – Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

When it’s a Star Wars reference about Lightsabers you know it’s also going to be a Precision weapon challenge. This is a good build up to the Weekly Challenge, 5 should present no problem, jump into a Team SWAT match, take out some guys and it’s an easy top up of 1000 credits.

I’m going to be trying out the new Firefight variants later this evening, if I can pull myself away from Assassin’s Creed 2, so hopefully I can start suggesting ways to achieve credits in them.

And a final question for you to consider, if I was to do short videos on key tricks and elements of challenges to help out, what would you want to see?

    I was told the new Firefight doesn’t return until tomorrow. Still, it’ll be a blast!

    You could link to youtube videos with a lot of tips for challenges already included. I know there are tips videos for the LASO challenges and others. BOB (Gold Elite) locations as well if they pop again?

    Triple Thrill – Easy variant: Infection. Get 5 kills with a shotgun and you will get a killing spring, zombie killing spree, and shotgun spree. Hope this helps.

    • Shane says:

      Yep, I was going to post this too :-). Pinnacle is a good map for this since the approach in the sheltered tower is unbalanced against the zombies.

      • Oki Chobee says:

        Very true and very frustrating as a zombie lol. I managed 32 kills on pinnacle and a running riot yesterday.

      • DCSimian81 says:

        Other option on pinnacle is the sniper post opposite the sheltered tower. Only one way up 🙂
