5th March – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

A mixed bag of some slightly tricky challenges that you won’t do in one game today, which is nice…

One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 1875 cR

You get 120 Grunts in Gruntpocalypse, and 120 in 2X Score Attack. So it might be worth doing a normal Firefight then a mix of the other variants if you need to top up to the challenges.

This is My Rifle – Earn 20 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper Rifle, Focus Beam and Needle Rifle (anything that gives a headshot except the Pistol, which is a Small Arms weapon). Team SWAT will do you well here. Unless you use melee or Pistol every kill will be a precision weapon kill, so play it a few times, try and get a good team who will cover your back (and you theirs).

Freelancing – Earn at least 23 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2300 cR

I know a few people will look at this and think it’s not a problem, but for us mere mortals this can be something of a challenge. If you’re good at Rumble Pit, where the total is 25 to win, you can get this. Other good options are Multi-Team Battle generally, and specifically the objective based games where kill volume is not the target, so you can keep taking guys down without the game ending. Particularly Crazy King and Oddball I’m thinking. Grifball’s also a good one at times, as is Invasion if you’re human and have a good group.

Un, Deux, Trois – Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1450 cR

If you play a Team Slayer/SWAT/Grifball/Snipers etc you’ll get this easier, since only two teams gives you a higher chance of winning than the 6 person multi team (for instance).

Don’t forget tomorrow’s blog is being guest written by the fabulous Bungiesgirl. Play nice, she’d kick your ass (and regularly kicks or betrays mine) in Halo. I’m off to buy house stuff. Woot.le de

    Nice mix of challenges. I definately like them better than the 2 triple kills and 4 double kills challenges. The freelancing challenge i could probally get in a rumble pit if the map is sword base, since thats pretty much the only map i can get 1st place in most of the time. I think i will let my son get the rest of them for us since hes alot better than me at most gametypes on here. So, where is everyone at today? Well, have a great day everyone! 🙂

    For me, I find that doing Firefight Arcade is much easier (and more fun) to rack up kills on for the One Spartan Army challenge. Also, for the Freelancing challenge, Living Dead can be good for this as I have been able to kill up to 38 zombies in one game, and I am no where near the best of players. ;]
