Commentary follows after the break…

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

So you could do this in one game of Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack or some of the other variants. I’d definitely go for Gruntpoc as the best option? Because it’s got easy enemies to take out and a really quick game type to play through. Plus you get a Pistol for the next challenge, and can use the DMR to continue your headshots for the last one.

Be Their Huckleberry – Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Pistol – 1000 cR

Try and get a Gruntpocalypse game in so you can stick to just the pistol, take out the little methane breathers as quick as possible with the Pistol then switch to DMR to continue your headshot chase. Some maps are definitely better than others, Corvette and Courtyard are small and easy to see across to take them out. I personally think Holdout’s an evil little map, although that’s when it introduces the tougher enemies in Score Attack.

Storm’s Comin’ – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with Mythic and Thunderstorm on – 1750 cR

I’m giving exactly the same advice as every optional Campaign mission challenge – run Nightfall, get this done in 10 minutes, tops. As a guide to Nightfall speed run I’ve picked this video off Youtube randomly, but there are hundreds like it. In fact we have further options and details on the time we did it in LASO on this Weekly Challenge page and comments. There are other levels you may be more familiar with, but honestly, you can do this in 5-6 minutes with minimal stress.

Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 150 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 1125 cR

Gruntpocalypse and 2x Score Attack are great ways of doing this, you should be looking to get a lot of headshots in a game, as before especially if it’s on a simple map where you can line up the Grunts, like Corvette or Courtyard. If you get to a high number rather than doing a whole game again jump in Crashsite or Generator Defense and only defend until you have your total then give up the goal. I’d recommend using the pistol for this challenge so that you can get the earlier challenge, then switch to your preferred headshot weapon (Pistol, DMR, Sniper Rifle, Needle Rifle).

    Easy, easy 🙂

  2. The Fired Goon says:

    Heck yeah, eh. 4 easily done for Daily and the weekly done in a matter of a couple hours. Happy 4th of July to everyone!

  3. Scruff UK says:

    Well that was easy.

    Well on target to rank up on Bungie Day, wheeeee 🙂

    Hello everyone!

    Regarding today’s challenges, I haven’t done any of them; however, think they’re easy. The same for the weekly.

    I’ve got a couple of questions that maybe has already been answered. Is there a post with your GTs or should I look for them in several posts? May I add you?

    I think Bungie should make new MM challenges, like “destroy X vehicles in MM” or “kill X enemies with vehicles in MM”. What would you propose?

    • Scruff UK says:

      Personally I’d prefer something like ‘score the objective in a Team Objective game 10 times today’ or something like that. Or ‘as a human, survive a full round of Living Dead’ etc 🙂

      • iam8up says:

        I like those ideas.

        Not a fan of today’s challenges, I’m tired of the Firefight challenges. Keep them on Thursdays or mix it up, but don’t do both =(

      • Scruff UK says:

        I know what you mean, but they are easy and very quick to knock out the Weekly with.

        Also I would be surprised if Thursday’s challenges will be FF this week, given that Thursday is Bungie day. I expect interesting one-off challenges, or failing that at least some MM ones to coincide with all the MM games.

    • porottaja says:

      Vehicular challenges FTW!

      Flaming ninja – Assasinate a player that has Blue flames equipped in multiplayer matchmaking.

  5. Wunschkind89 says:

    So, 2000 cR for any mission on Normal and Thunderstorm on, now (technically) a little harder and less of a payout? Bungie is the epitome of zero consistency.

    I love challenges that directly affect your commendations 😀

  6. Brady Cook says:

    Add me at xbox live: gamertag: utahjazzfreak I need people for co-op campaign. I also play team swat. Add me

  7. Literally was able to complete all four of todays dailies in under an hour and knock out the weekly as a result. Very easy challenges on this wonderful holiday (if you’re American, of course).

    That being said, Happy 4th to all my fellow Americans out there! Have a wonderful and safe holiday!

    As always, good luck to everyone.

  8. Corporal Alexei says:

    Its official, I have played too much Reach. My daughter was running around chasing the dogs, yelling, “Laso!”. And, of course, all I could think of was the weekly LASOs that have kicked my ass the last few months. Thanks, Bunglie. 🙂

    • YoSoY says:

      You know you’ve been playing Halo Reach too much when…

      No offense man, but that’s kind of sick 🙂

      • Corporal Alexei says:

        No offense taken. I’m thinking of checking out some of that fresh air outside that I hear people talking about. Damn this Chicago heat.

  9. Woody says:

    Twenty-four minutes of my time and all four daily and weekly challenges are done. Woohoo!!

  10. Niisama Broham says:

    Anyone happen to get the Week Jackpot (Any Playlist 30,000 cR daily) in a FF game yet?

  11. Steve (GT stevebergen) says:

    Easiest daily challenges ever. I also got the 30000 credit jackpot in my last game of Gruntapoc in Score Attack. 46655 credits in an hour, I think that is my record.

  12. My wife (Beautifu1) also got the huge jacpot for a Score Attack gruntpocalypse. She got the headshot challenge, which gave her the weekly challenge, plus the 30,000+ jackpot… she got promoted 2¾ ranks after one 12-minute firefight!
