Commentary follows after the break…

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

By the time you’ve done the other challenges you should be close to getting this, so just rock on with your favourite MPMM game type, or a busy Campaign mission, or something like Crashsite/Generator Defense. If you want to do it quickly then as always a quick Gruntpocalypse game with get it done fast.

Helping Hand – Earn 10 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Note, this is not in 1 game, so I reckon just play as normal and you’ll get there. As ever with an assist challenge, tell your team you’re going for it, and if possible pair up with someone. In Sniper game types this is very powerful as you can try to both shoot the same person in the body and one of you should get an assist.

Light Fuse, Run Away – Kill 4 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

Any good MP type helps here. Obviously Elite Slayer is good for Plasma Grenades, and I think Slayer Pro, or maybe Team Slayer, has a loadout with Plasma grenades too. This is with any grenade too, so just jump in your favourite game type (that isn’t in Action Sack, Grifball or Infection) and start throwing grenades into firefights. Squad Slayer on Zealot can be excellent for this, because you get groups running around and some fairly long but tight corridors.

Home Field Advantage – Win 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1600 cR

Stick to Team Slayer/SWAT/Snipers/Objective/Grifball etc for this. In those there are only two teams so your chances of winning are greatly improved. If you find a group of guys you play well with then stick with them.

    Grrrrr….how I despise assist challenges. However, like Matthew you said, you may get this one today through your normal course of playing.

  2. Sergeant Jinto says:

    Bleh, all MM challenges today, save for one. I for one prefer the Firefight challenges. I don’t have to worry about laggy games if I’m playing Score Attack by myself. =P

  3. Hobocore says:

    ‘Light Fuse – Run away’ – This one makes me not want to play matchmaking today. I have enough of a problem with grenades being overpowered as it is, without everyone throwing them even more than usual.

  4. Edward (GT: Marshy 40) says:

    Must be on a lucky streak today: got 3 of the 4 wins on Multi-team, and earned an extermination in the 4th game.

    FF double attack is good this weekend, with double slot machine credits. Got several 3000 cr and one 6000 cr game. Have not hit the 13000 cr jackpot in living dead yet.

    • John says:

      I managed to bag the 14,000 jackpot in my second game of Living Dead last night, also had a few 3,000 jackpots in Score Attack as well.

      I’d go into multi-team for assists, one good game of Crazy King is easily 10 assists.


  5. Tom says:

    This is seriously the lowest paying day of challenges I have ever seen, plus one of them is an assists challenge. Serious disappointment.

    • John says:

      Yeah I was hoping for some better challenges as I’m about 90% done with General Grade 4 and hoping to finish this weekend. Here’s hoping for better challenges tomorrow.

      • Braythor says:

        Yeah you’d think the weekend ones would be a bit bigger, but it’s often not the case. Maybe Snicks is right (though not about it being Friday) about a lot of people have got other things to do with the weekend. I don’t, and intend to play and drink my heart out tonight.

      • John says:

        I’d have thought the other way round, it’s a weekend so people are likely to have more time as there’s no school and no work for weekday workers.

    • Matthew Edwards (Amduscias) says:

      Hah, one of them could be the 777cR payout challenges. 😉

  6. meh. remember guys –

    1. it’s Friday Saturday which means most people with lives (ie, not necessarily us 😉 ) don’t want to spend it pounding out hard challenges


    2. it’s a LASO week which leads me to think that the challenges are fairly simple because then it encourages people to work on said weekly.

  7. biodrumr says:

    You can take care of grenades in Action Sack – Dino Blasters. I tend to go sticky crazy because everyone is just too damn confident with the Concussion Rifle.


    Multi team crazy king for the assists and grenades. Got like 9 assists in one games in addition to a nice chunk of kills. Grifball for the wins then back to living dead for the super jackpot grind. Picked up 14,125 yesterday in living dead still trying to nail it today.

  9. Corporal Alexei says:

    Remember guys: there are four daily challenges refreshed everday. They can’t all be super pay-outs and unique. Don’t like today’s? There is another set coming out soon. Okay, all that being said, I was disappointed today too! 🙂

    • LordLiam316 says:

      Agreed. While I’m not the biggest fan of low paying challenges, I can do easy ones that I don’t have to put that much effort into and wait for tomorrows. I get why people are complaining but if you’re going to complain then turn your console off abd wait for the next dailies 🙂

  10. Matthew Edwards (Amduscias) says:

    Honestly, I don’t play mm that much unless I have my chatty friends to jam with, but as far as they go, at least these are interesting challenges.

    And for a who are interested, my Elimination gametype is now up on my file share. Be good to her. And try to get even teams haha.

  11. SnuK evoX says:

    Pretty easy challenges today again…. Hhmmm it seems like they’re gearing up for something different. Any ideas.
