8th February – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Lots of multiplayer today, and at some point we should see Grifball returned, hurrah!

Fire When Ready – Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

This is over any number of games, so no stress to push for it at once. 30 should only take a few games though, Multi-Team Battle is particularly good for getting a high number of kills in any one game, especially the objective based Crazy King and Oddball variants.

A Great Friend – Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

An assist is when you do 40% or more damage to an opponent and someone else kills them within 4 seconds. There are various ways to do this, one of the best is to team up with someone and work on taking people out together, again particularly in the Multi-Team Battle variants. I will confess I’ve still not tried Rumble Pit for assists, but every time these challenges appear it’s recommended. Other good options include an overcharged Plasma Pistol or Sniper Rifle shot to the body do more than 40% damage straight off, so you can always snipe from a camping position (ie the loft on Pinnacle) to help take people down. In Grifball I seem to get lots of assists, particularly when trying to take out the bomb carrier, although I think they’ve changed the damage taken by the carrier.

Throwing Fireballs – Kill 7 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1200 cR

As always I think the objective games in Multi-Team battle are good for grenade kills, especially Crazy King as you can chuck grenades in the ‘hill’ to try and get more than one guy. The Elite variant games can be good with sticky grenades, but Armour Lock is so common now it’s not worth it. I’m thinking perhaps Invasion too, since that’s also not based on kill volumes and you can throw grenades into the target areas when the opposition are unlocking something

Put Your Quarter up – Complete 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Complete 10 games. Don’t drop out. Get to the end of each. Just play through them. Doesn’t matter if you win or lose. Sorry, I can’t drag out this explanation any further. Is there a way of doing this quickly? Infection is a very fast game type so you’ll probably get it done in 10 minutes using that, and Grifball can be very quick depending on if someone goes for the score straight away!

Again not a huge amount of credits, but really easy to get them all quickly so definitely worth trying for.

    Really wish there were a firefight or campaign challenge in there today. Dont get me wrong i like the multiplayer challenges, its just that ive done so many of them i would rather myself do some of the others. I guess there is always tomorrow! Atleast Griffball is back today and the Community maps, so i guess this will help me grind away at some of these. Im glad to see that Firefight Arcade is back also!

      Bah, all multiplayer! I need to find a team to play with. Everyone I know is too sucked in to Black Ops these days.

        Beware the dark side…..

      • michael says:

        Me too man, me too… It seems like everytime i get into a team game someone is either running around shooting at their teammates or hovering over a dead enemies body teabagging them to look cool. lol!

    • Throldahl says:

      You could just play what you want, regardless of challenges.

    • Oki Chobee says:

      Hey michael, what is FF arcade? I only play score attack from time to time, what’s the deal with arcade?

      • michael says:

        I know you have an overshield and unlimited lives. You play for 15 min., other than that i really dont know. Its just easier for me to live longer when i have the overshield. lol! Im looking on here now and i dont see any Griffball or any of the other gametypes that were supposed to come out today. On Bungie’s website it says all of the stuff was supposed to start today.

    Cant complain too much today, not a lot of Cr but a definitely easy day shouldnt take more than an hour.

  3. michael says:

    Does anyone know why Griffball or the firefight gametypes arent on here today when on Bungie’s website it says it starts 2/8/2011? Just wondering.

  4. michael says:

    Nevermind…Griffball, Community Slayer and the new Firefights are here… They just popped up a few minutes ago. Have a great day everyone!

    • ItsEdalicious says:

      HURRRAY 😀 oh how i have missed you grifball

      • Oki Chobee says:

        Time to get close quarters up to onyx before it’s taken down again 😀 someone get on there now and tell me how the new changes to grifball are!

      • michael says:

        From what i can tell they have the option of Warrior or Gladiator and a few new maps for it. Other than that, looks the same to me. At first i didnt like Grifball but now its really grew on me. Its pretty fun when you actually have a good team that try to win.
