2nd March – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Another nice mix before we’re into Firefight Thursday and Multiplayer MFriday (I need the alliteration okay)…

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1350 cR

You’re best doing the necessary to complete the next challenges, then if you need to top up jump into a Gruntpocalypse/Score Attack type match to get your final kills.

A Friend in Need – Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Courtyard all the way, especially on the Elites and Brutes. If you do 40% or more damage and someone else kills the enemy in 4 seconds you get an assist. So when you start seeing Elites and Brutes start hammering them (particularly using an overcharged Plasma Pistol on Elites) when there are other people clustered around you.

Short, Controlled Bursts – Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today – 1000 cR

Automatic weapons are those that fire repeatedly, namely the Assault Rifle, Plasma Repeater, Plasma Rifle, Needler and Spiker. In Campaign you want a mission with lots and lots of enemies quickly. As usual, Winter Contingency’s a good one as it’s not too hard, and the enemies come quickly. Stick to Normal difficulty so you don’t have to spend too long. There are tricks in some places like Rally Point Bravo on The Package where you can get a checkpoint just before a group of Grunts so you can take out 5 quickly, then restart checkpoint and do it again.

Headshot Honcho – Kill 11 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1320 cR

Team SWAT everytime for this. It’s in one game, but in SWAT you should easily get this number of headshots, if not double!

See, a nice easy mix to knock out in 30-60 minutes then play Grifball.

    For the assists in firefight, play arcade and grab a beam rifle, it works great and you can knock down several enemies health and your party will do the rest. Glacier is a great level for that. Should take you one round if you play your cards right.

    Great tip Eagle Eye I never thought about doing that. Will definitely be giving it a try later on today.

    Another day of low credit values. Well atleast the challenges are pretty easy, but i really dont think im going to be able to get the weekly done. 😦

    You gotta do griff ball the kills you get from one game is insane.

      Sometimes i get a pretty good amount of kills in grifball, but most of the time not so much. It seems like everytime someone swings the hammer at me from like 10 feet away it kills me, but when i swing mine like right on top of them it does nothing. Dont know what im doing wrong but there has to be some sort of certain way of racking up kills with the hammer.

    Words cannot adequately express JUST how much I suck at Team SWAT – it often feels like I’m running round with one of those giant papier-mache heads on. I picked up that achievement in a slayer game in Rumble Pit instead – got me Commander Grade 2, so that’s me got the rest of the night off!

  6. Spyke says:

    Just a little tip for the Short, Controlled Bursts challenge. If you want a level that you can get this done super fast and easy just do Sword Base on Normal at Mission Start. Than once you feel like you have killed enough for the moment you just simply restart mission and destroy them all again. Hope this helps.

    Sigh… easy challenges for little reward.

    griftball is the way to go for the weekly. get good with the timing and get some guys that dont score the ball and you can get 50 or more easy. try to make it to the spawn point while one member holds the ball and rack up. it is day 3 for the weekly and i think i need 200 or less. which i will get tonight..
