Commentary follows after the break…

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

You’ve got a few choices for doing this really easily and quickly…

  • Forge – make a game with players spawning in one spot and camp it
  • Firefight – Download my Firefight Invincible game type on my File Share, lots of Elites, lots of medals, lots of kills
  • ONI: Sword Base – Use the Target Designator trick (run past everyone at the beginning, grab it, turn around, fire, wait for the killing to stop and restart the checkpoint)
  • Package – There are points where you can get a checkpoint just before a number of Grunts appear in the final battle, so you can gun them down and restart

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

Precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper Rifle, 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).

There are Many Like…Kill 200 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today – 1500 cR

Precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper Rifle, and Needle Rifle (anything that can headshot except the Pistol, which is small arms, although you don’t need to headshot for the challenge). Nightfall is good, because you start with loads and loads of ammo for the Sniper Rifle, and you can shoot the first Elite in the head, restart checkpoint and do it over and over (a little dull but quick and easy). Winter Contingency from Rally Point Bravo which has DMRs in the base and lots of guys dropped off to shoot at you. I think ONI Sword Base also starts off with the DMR as well, and a series of Grunts running towards you quickly. With 200 being such a large kill volume that might be your best bet, to start there, take out the Grunts and Jackals then restart the mission.

Heroic Holdout – Kill 150 enemies on Holdout on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking – 1125 cR

So you’re probably looking at two games of anything here – if you can get into Firefight Arcade or Limited on your own or with one other you might get this, but you might as well whizz through Gruntpocalypse, 2x Score Attack or something twice.

Wednesday night is Game Night as usual, but we’re going to be doing Halo 3 parties as well as a Halo Reach one. Read this page for information on what’s planned and let us know a) if you’re coming and b) which party you’re looking at joining.

    Pretty low cR payouts today 😦 Still, two games on Holdout is a nice excuse to get some Banshee kills in, if nothing else 🙂

    Oh and the comments are broken on the Game Night hub page, new ones are appearing about halfway down. Feel free to delete the long and rambling chain of posts about the Halo 3 vidmaster achievement, they do appear to be getting in the way somewhat, I’ll make a nice new concise one for the people concerned 🙂

    Man it took me two complete runs through the Score Attack playlist just to get to Holdout once! I still don’t get why we can’t choose our own maps and gametypes in single player (or local co-op) Firefight Matchmaking.

    Not sure if I’ll have time to get on today and do these, but for firefight remember that after you do a 2x score attack, hope for a crashsite or generator type where you can rack up your last 30ish kills and then just let the generator die. Of course, if you’re in a firefight mood you can go for full games, or even just hit arcade/limited with friends and keep playing the same map until you all have enough.

    Campaign would be easily done on RP Bravo of The Package; I already try to grind about 200 kills at this point a day to slowly work towards my commendations, so will pick this up in a moments time, followed by 1-2 games of SWAT to finish off the challenges.
