8th March – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

A really credit return for the challenges today…

One Spartan Army – Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 2000 cR

You get 120 Grunts in Gruntpocalypse, about 100 enemies in Score Attack and something like 330 in a Firefight Matchmaking game (although split between up to 4 people). I recommend 3 Score Attack and one Gruntpocalypse, since you don’t always get the full amount in each game (usually Grunts and Brutes kill each other by accident with grenades), and Score Attack gives you a good way to up various commendations with the variety of weapons and enemy kills.

Watersports – Kill 100 enemies on Waterfront on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

This is really easy, so jump in whatever Firefight variant you enjoy and blast some dudes. One of the Score Attack or Gruntpoc games to help with the first challenge will be definitely worth doing here.

Iron Will – Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on – 2500 cR

Iron restarts the mission if you die, so be very careful here. The main trick is that if you do quickly save and quit the mission, then restart it and the challenge will be active again from your last checkpoint. Winter Contingency is good to do because we should all be experts at it now, or Nightfall, since you can use various tricks to get through it barely firing anything.

Put Your Quarter Up – Complete 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1750 cR

Complete 15 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!

As ever, if you have your own thoughts please put them in the comments.

    Hmmmmm….I like these challenges today. I know it sounds silly but i feel kinda dirty doing the Nightfall mission again for the Iron Will challenge. LoL. I believe i will stick with Winter Contingency for this because like Matthew stated, most of us are a pro at this mission. I know i feel like i am since i spent probally around 20 hours total on the LASO challenge for this level. After doing a challenge like that, Heroic just seems way too easy, lol. Good luck to everyone today and have a great day!

    Good credit rewards today, as was yesterday, hopefully this trend will continue, i need to get to general!

  3. Trayer says:

    If you did a Save and Quit before the end of LASO on Nightfall, it makes for an easy 2500 cR today. Mine is saved only ten or so paces from the end of the level. Nice.

    i don’t understand how the save-quit trick works. So as soon as you die, press start and select save and quit? that takes you back to the campaign lobby… then do you just select resume campaign? does that take you back to the last checkpoint with the iron skull still active? thanks!

  5. SuperSaiyann says:

    So when you die, press start – save and quit? back to campaign lobby.. then just resume? is that how the iron skull trick works ?

    • michael says:

      As soon as you die, right then hit start and save and exit, then from the campaign lobby hit resume solo campaign. It will take you to your last checkpoint before died. Myself i did this and finished the mission then resumed solo campaign from the menu and went back to my last save, i did this like 8 times just to get my Flawless Cowboy commendation up a little. 🙂

      • Mobius1 says:

        So if I get through the mission just fine and get passed the gate glitch I can save n quit before the end? Then go back over and over to gain flawless cowboy commendation points?! R u sure this works?

      • michael says:

        After you do the gate glitch you can go to the end of the level and finish it, then after you completed the mission it will take you back to the campaign lobby. Just hit resume solo campaign and it will take you back to your last checkpoint, usually right to the forklift, and you can go through the gate again and finish it again. Just repeat as much as you like. I did it about 4 times then like a dummy on my fifth try i went through the gate and instead of running straight to the finish i turned around and got up close to the gate looking around and when i started to the end of the mission there were a bunch of covenant there so i messed that one up. lol. Some People say an easier way to get the Flawless Cowboy commendation up is to do Winter Contingency on heroic. Make sure you dont die and when you get to the end finish the level and at the campaign menu hit resume solo. It will take you back to the part of the level at the end with the sword elite. Just kill the few grunts and the elite without dying and finish again. Repeat as much as you like and as long as you dont die, your good to go. 🙂

      • Trayer says:

        There is usually a checkpoint right before the end of Nightfall, after the forklift, literally right before you walk into the end and trigger the cutscene. I Save and Quit there. I boosted my Flawless Cowboy commendation to Onyx a while ago. Pathetic dedication.

    Can anyone explain how to do 15 games of infection in 10 minutes? I never get credit for several games. Am I doing something wrong?

    • michael says:

      You would probally be waiting in the lobby that long just to find players for 15 games. lol!

  7. sam says:

    you cant do 15 games of infection in 10 mins lol

  8. Mike says:

    Honestly I think they should have a daily finish X # of games challenge. Like have it every day. I am so tired of getting into a big team battle and when things start going south having like half the team quit. Seriously I have had to face 8 man team by my self cause everyone quit and the only remaining person was afc

  9. Ashlee says:

    So, I did the ” Iron Will ” Challenge. Winter Contingency, on Heroic, Iron on. And it didn’t give me the challenge nor the credits for it !! Still says I haven’t completed the challenge. Could anyone explain this ? Or did this happen to anyone else ?

  10. jrod says:

    God I failed so bad on Oni Sword Base trying to do Iron Will. 3 tries I died each time by some freak accident. Some lucky ass stick by a grunt, some questionable reverent action and then finally some random elite I encountered on the way to up Emile.
