14th March – Reach Daily Challenges Commentary

Good credit returns, fun challenges and a weekly you can gently start on… today’s a good Challenge day.

Covenant-cide – Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 1100 cR

You get 120 enemies in a Gruntpocalypes/Fiesta Attack/2X Score Attack game types. How annoyed would you be if a Grunt took out one or two others with a grenade leaving you with 119 kills? My tip – do this on Waterfront. Not the most favourite map I know, but you can snipe the dudes on the cliff to add a kill or two.

Gunslinger – Kill 75 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2250 cR

Grifball as ever for high kill volumes (assuming everyone’s playing along not scoring to get the weekly challenge). You can get 30, 40, 50 and more kills in a good game when you have your timing and eye in with the hammer. I imagine there are guys out there who will be able to get this challenge in one game. But then with the next challenge you may as well take your time…

The Love of the Game – Complete 17 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1850 cR

It might take a bit of time but there’s no limitation on winning or weapons etc. Fastest games are often Infection as they go really quickly I find. Equally, it’s a good chance to try out different variants you might not have played, so jump in BTB, Rumble Pit and Arena to see what they’re like. And of course you can win 3 rounds of Grifball in 30 seconds if you’re just going for the bomb and the score, but as ever it’s much more fun to hit people over the head with a hammer surely? :D

…Got a Triple Double – Earn 3 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking – 1500 cR

Here I always recommend Grifball again if you have your eye in, or Team SWAT, particularly somewhere like Sword Base. Lots of teams work together in the killing area at the top of the green lift, so if you can either hold that or attack it cleverly you’ll quite often be able to take out 2 guys at a time (in previous games I got at least one Execution and a couple of Overkills). If you’re looking for alternatives, Multi Team is good, particularly Crazy King or Oddball so the round goes on longer and you can take out guys going for the objective.

    I think the pilots of vehicles add a couple kills as well; I’ve been on things like Beachhead and Outpost recently and after the ‘5 enemies remaining’ announcement I’ve noticed that the vehicles don’t have one of the five arrows over them. So a ghost can add an extra kill, maybe a wraith adds two if the gunner’s still intact.

    • Rob says:

      You are correct. Vehicle pilots (and gunners for the wraith) as well as the drop ship (phantom?) concussion turrets count as kills towards this challenge.

    If you are short just a few firefight kills, play Crashsite to top off your kills and give up the generator. I usually do that when I need 50 or less kills and saves me some time rather than a full game.

    A game of firefight 17 games of grifball = 1-1.5 hours and 6700 Cr
