9th July – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Today’s challenges are listed below, click Read More to view the commentaries:

  1. Light Fare – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1000 cR
  2. Up Close and Personal – Kill 3 enemies with Close Quarters Combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR
  3. Close Talking – Earn 40 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR
  4. Credits for Completion – Complete 6 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

Light Fare – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1000 cR

If you want to do this specifically (as you’ll probably getting it just playing for the other challenges) then jump into something on Score Attack, maybe Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack or Fiesta Attack to get it done quickly and rack up the kills. But don’t sweat it, the rest of today will be good for this…

Up Close and Personal – Kill 3 enemies with Close Quarters Combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

Close Quarters Combat is essentially melee, assassination, sword, hammer or shotgun kills. Juggernaut in Rumble Pit’s good – if you can become the Juggernaut you’ve got a big hammer to club people with! But of course Grifball is 100% melee and easy to get lots of kills when you get your timing right, as is Infection (bar the pistol). There are a couple of Action Sack variants that work well, particularly Halo Ball Extreme.

Close Talking – Earn 40 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR

Same advice as the last one really, except you might need two or three games of any of the suggested game types, like Grifball, Infection games or HaloBall Extreme.

Credits for Completion – Complete 6 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR

This is just completion, not wins, so easy to do. Two good options for this match up nicely with the last two challenges – play Living Dead–Infection for some really fast games, or Grifball and score with the bomb really quickly.

Tonight I’ll be online late to play with the Xbox Support Twitter Team will be in Reach for some games. Whilst we couldn’t get any games against Bungie we should be able to guarantee some games against these guys. That kicks off at 9pm EST, hopefully I’ll see you there.

    Some easy challenges for anybody who hasn’t done the weekly yet 🙂 Good playlist for the Super Jackpot too, good luck everybody!

    nice tips as always..
    i have a question for all of the frequent halo players out there…
    Have u found that ur gameplay has reached a point where it is less fun? i used to play and had fun regardless of if i win or lost, but now it seems like the only thing that gives me satisfaction is having a random custom game with a friend or a few in the arena… highlight of the week was my first two games yesterday when i got 2 perfections in a row. but even then i didnt feel like playing for hours on nothing more then junk food and the dim light of the tv 😉 anyone have any thing that makes halo more fun for them? i’d love to get some advice/tips on that.

      Playing with friends is a good way. Last night’s “quick three games” turned into an hour and a half’s worth of Rumble Pit (and bullying a 12-year-old) thanks to some friendly company 😉

      But if you’re not having fun with it anymore.. then just don’t play it 😉

      • i had a bit more fun with him afterwards…and he’s still on my list. should be very, very entertaining. 😉

        VA – i find that for the most part, i’m actually enjoying Halo a lot more right now. but i suspect that’s because i can feel (and see, via improving K/D spread) that i’m getting a little better. i’m doing much less “pray and spray” and playing more tactically. it’s taken years but i’ve learned the value in patience….even if i do get bored with “camping” after about 10 seconds. 😉

        but, that said, i do NOT like playing solo for the most part. occasionally i’ll go on and play some SWAT or rarely, rumble pit, by myself but i usually try to play with at least one other person. i find it’s more fun that way. when i jump into something lone wolf style, i just get really cranky and annoyed that my teammates aren’t doing what they’re supposed to. (my main set of friends that i play with i’ve “known” for almost 3 years now so we have a system down and we run like a well oiled machine….it’s annoying with the randoms don’t understand how that machine works and mess it all up. 😉 😀 )

        Agreed. Its so much more fun playing with friends when you can coordinate instead of with randoms who can’t hear you/don’t listen.

      • VA says:

        thanks a lot everyone, prior to seeing everyones reply i did play with a couple of my “friends” online, it was far more enjoyable even when they are not the most skilled players 😉 theres no way i could get so bored as to not play the game, but for some reason i was getting fet-up with some of the “problems” with matchmaking. Thank you everyone, guess now i’ll be searching for some regular players

      Yes! Sometimes I get on with my brother and we try to do some crazy stuff in campaign. Although I really feel bored after I finish the challenges.

  3. Tom says:

    Was lagging all over the place, so that was not a fun 6 games. Did get a super jackpot in addition to the cR from all the challenges though, so it all evens out.

  4. Scruff UK says:

    Grifball is the obvious choice but Rumble Pit is the more fun choice. Also a chance of a Super Jackpot, so yay, and I just won a game of Rumble Pit with 25 kills and 1 death. Ooh yeah 😀

    I’ll be on and off throughout the day, feel free to join me for some Rumble Pit if you see me online. After today I won’t be online for like a week and a half though so if I don’t see you, have a good Game Night on Wednesday and hopefully I’ll be around for the one the following week 🙂

    PS don’t forget to file ‘inappropriate gamertag’ complaints on my account, please 😉

    • nice! i had a Rampage in a RP game last night after you left! :mrgreen:

    • sapEEE says:

      Wait didn’t super jackpot (30 000 cr ) ended 7th day 😮 ?

      • Scruff UK says:

        There are super jackpots every weekend and have been for like 2 months 😉

        This weekend it’s 15,000 cR per day in Rumble Pit. Like it says in the ‘super jackpot’ box on the right hand side.

  5. Rider says:

    Yikes. I must have gotten 10 kills with the sword and shotgun each in that last game and only 3 of them counted. Bizarrely the ones that counted were all shotgun. Anybody else having that problem?

    • SlimEel94 says:

      Not today but Bungie Day caused nothing but problems! Got first strike on a few games that didn’t acknowledge along with a load of other un-recorded kills. I didn’t get that many kills throughout the day but it would have been nice to be rewarded with the ones I did get. Oh well, it was still fun and I managed to rank up twice while playing appalling!

  6. SlimEel94 says:

    Why, why, why? Saturday challenges this easy? Am I missing something or is this how it’s always been? I had to leave for work at 11:30 today bearing in mind the challenges update at 11:00 and I have nearly completed all of them. Don’t mind it just means even more time on RP when I get in than planned.

  7. deviouskyle251 says:

    Sounds like a Grifball kind of day to me!

  8. Jake Blunt says:

    Sorry, this may sound stupid but I got a 30000cR bonus in SWAT yesterday, and I went to look today and I’d lost it and been demoted. I had no idea why it happened and I’m wondering if anyone else has had this problem? I guess I’ll just be gunning down the clammy claw of the Living Dead tonight – hooray! 🙂
