19th February – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Pretty easy again, but only one challenge is really giving you a good amount of credits to chase…

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

By the time you’ve done the last challenge you should have this. If you want to do it quickly then as always a quick Gruntpocalypse game with get it done fast.

Now I have a Machine Gun – Earn 20 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Your multiplayer automatic weapons are the Assault Rifle, Needler and Plasma Rifle. I’d recommend Team Slayer in Elite Slayer, so that you can use the Needler to take guys out. This will take a bit of grinding, but allows you to work towards the win volume challenge above. Rumble Pit can be really helpful too running around blazing the AR, but it’s tempting to pick up other weapons.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution – Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

It should be a heavy weapon – Rocket Launcher, Spartan Laser, Grenade Launcher, Plasma Launcher and Concussion Rifle. I hoped it might be the Sniper Rifle too, but alas Team Snipers didn’t work. So Rocket Race is an option apparently. I got this last time by playing Team Slayer, and in Elite Slayer on Sword Base I grabbed the Concussion Rifle which is at the end of the main central area, by the jet to the top level. Then the enemy were kind enough to group by the killing zone and I opened fire. Other maps include Reflection with the Rocket Launcher, Countdown again with the Concussion Rifle and Cage with the Plasma Launcher. If you can find it then the Grenade Launcher is a one hit kill if you use it like the DMR and get a direct hit.

Who’s the Big Winner – Win 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3000 cR

Winning 15 games shouldn’t be so hard, just a little bit of a grind. Go for Team Slayer/SWAT/Snipers/Objective game types so you only have two teams playing and a better chance of winning. I’d also recommend finding some guys you play well with and sticking with them.

I would post a question here, but it’s been pointed out in an intellectual debate that that’s not a good plan. So all I ask is comments if you have your own tips.

And if you missed yesterday, I’d also like to ask a favour – you’ve probably heard me mention MBMBaM before, a great comedy podcast that I thoroughly recommend. One of the listeners is having a bad time of it and having to take extra care of his family, which is now eating away at his honeymoon fund. He’s in a competition to win a honeymoon instead, so all I’m asking is if you use the links on his forum post about it here, follow the links and like the page and his photo. If all it takes to help a guy out is clicking a mouse 5 times you can’t say no can you?

Finally, it’s the last day of this week’s poll today so let us know your favourite controller scheme. Next week I’m going to ask about armour abilities – any votes now on what the favourite will be? Drat, that’s a question isn’t it?? And so’s that!

    Matthew, just wanted to say that this site has become one of my favorites. Did the poll and also the votes for MBMBam yesterday.

    Keep up the good work!

    Just play Invasion for your three Ordnance weapon kills. 3rd tier includes Concussion and Grenade Launcher loadouts. Plus it features enemy players who blindly rush toward an objective. Got mine in the first game without trying.

    The website is like a fresh cup of coffee to start the day. Many thanks for being dedicated to it.

    Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Just do the others challeges and you get this.
    Now I have a Machine Gun – Invasion, you begun with a Needler or a assault rifle.
    Explosive Ordnance Distribution – Invasion Slayer is a good one.
    Who’s the Big Winner – Grifball.

    I dont know if it would be too many choices to put into a poll, maybe you could narrow them down but, how about favorite helmet? xD

  6. well, easy challenges today mean more time to work towards the weekly, right?

    or in my case, maybe campaign. 😮
