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.

Sweep the Leg – Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

So many options for assassinations – you can stealth it and hide somewhere to take someone out as they run past (Sword Base’s hallways, Pinnacle and Uncaged in the lofts etc). You can play Halo Ball Extreme (my favourite for this) as the massive map often means you’ll end up with someone not knowing you’re behind them at some point. Or just play normally – if you find someone AFK then you’re quids in. Hopefully you won’t get paired with some dude who watches your team killed whilst he tries to up his assassinations *mumble mumble*

Sticky Icky Icky – Earn 5 sticky grenade kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1400 cR

Slayer Pro has no armour lock and one loadout with Plasma Grenades. Invasion is excellent too since it’s really good for sticky grenades in the first round. DinoBlasters can be surprisingly good since no one tends to look out for the grenades, especially when you’re in Zealot type maps.

The Love of the Game – Complete 20 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Check out this weekly challenge post for lots of detail on getting through games quickly. 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.

    Considering the potential to get 15,000 cR jackpot, these challenges will definitely be fitting for a grifball day. Since I’m off work today, I’m hoping to spend most of the day playing… first I have to see about getting out of this dang hospital. 😦

    • whaaaa? why are you in the hospital? i hope everything’s okay! 😦

      • Woody says:

        Hey Snicker… I’m doing okay. My girlfriend is the reason, I’m at the hospital. I had to rush her to the hospital late last night for what we thought was just one of her several series of kidneystones. Surprisingly, the doc told us she has an imflamantion that would require her to stay overnight and who knows how long she’ll be here today. Regardless, I’m not leaving her side, unless I’m getting something to eat. Thanks for asking.

      • oh no, that’s awful! i hope she feels better ASAP! 😦

      • Woody says:

        Thanks! I’m hoping as well.

      • michael (DR HIGGLESTEIN) says:

        Hope she gets better soon Woody, i know what its like to have a kidney stone. I had one a few years back and it was terrible. Many trips in and out of the ER.

      • Matthew Vose says:

        That sucks to hear, pass on our wishes for a speedy recovery from everyone here man (only if it doesn’t get you in trouble for being on the site whilst in the hospital!!).

      • Woody says:

        Thanks, Michael and Matthew! I will pass on the well wishes. Oh, she doesn’t have any issues with me being on the site.

    • 'Cos says:

      @ woody

      Hope all is well. Much respect for your support. Best of luck to all involved.

      – seventh dawg

    I can’t find slayer pro anymore like the commentary mentioned. Where is it?

  4. Braythor says:

    Lucky day for me it seems – got the super jackpot on my third grifball game (and hit Field Marshall finally hurray), then first rumble pit game was elite slayer so got the sticky and assassin challenges. Oh and I won a whole £3 on the thunderball!!! Fantastic.

    • Woody says:

      Congrats on being a Field Marshall. I thought I would’ve gotten there myself over the weekend, but it maybe next weekend by the time I get there.

  5. michael (DR HIGGLESTEIN) says:

    We have been playing alot of Grifball today and in the past 2 games we must have gotten lucky. The first game we recieved right around 5,000Cr. And the second game we got around 6,000Cr. Lastnight my son got the 15,000 Cr jackpot so that was awesome. Me and my son are trying our best to get to Eclipse, only 174,115 Cr. to go! Im hoping we get there by atleast Monday night or Tuesday. 😉
