  2. Up Close and Personal – Kill 3 enemies with Close Quarters Combat in a multiplayer game – 1000 cR
  3. Aggressive Negotiations – Earn at least 19 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1900 cR
  4. L.D. Solace – Complete Long Night of Solace, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt and Tough Luck on – 5000 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

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

You could do this in one game of Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack or some of the other variants. 2X is good because youโ€™re likely to get slightly more than 120 so it takes account of TKs from the Covvies.

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

Close Quarters Combat is essentially melee, assassination, sword, hammer or shotgun kills. Grifball is 100% melee and easy to get lots of kills when you get your timing right. Infection can be really good, and it does appear that sword kills count double for the sword and the pummel.

Aggressive Negotiations – Earn at least 19 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1900 cR

Grifball is again a good option for this. It’s easy to get lots of kills, especially if you swap around your team holding the bomb to make games last longer. Squad Slayer, Multi-Team and Halo Ball Extreme are also excellent choices, and if you’re good at Rumble Pit you’ll be able to do this in that game type too.

L.D. Solace – Complete Long Night of Solace, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt and Tough Luck on – 5000 cR

The best advice I can give is to re-read Tyrantโ€™s guide to doing it Mythic, as this is very similar to that, and all the advice when we saw this as a LASO challenge.

    Do NOT like the Campaign challenge at all >_< . I shall see if I have the patience to do it though.

    The other challenges? Easy! ^_^

    • porottaja says:

      For me, LASO is easier than L.D.

      • TheOneInYellow says:

        I ACTUALLY agree with you. This is one of two levels that I do not like doing on Legendary with skulls >_>

      • 'Cos says:

        Chuck Norris, Jack Bauer, & Tyrant all watch MY videos!!

        Couldn’t sleep after dogs woke me up @ 6:15 am EST. Stupid me for checking this site and accepting the “challenge”. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Dailies done. Off to sleep. Big day today for my Dawgs against Boise State. Halo and college football. What a day. Sic ’em!

        Good luck to all today, and thanks to all i played with yesterday as well.

        – seventh dawg

        p.s. : LASO, SLASO, L.D. …makes no difference to me. I love campaign “challenges”.

        Go Broncos! ;D

  2. Scruff 815 says:

    Gans – this Campaign challenge is your fault. You had to say that the challenges were too easy at the moment, didn’t you? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Anyhoo, the other three are done, and didn’t take that long at all. Had fun in the FF Arcade game I played, where a Reclaimer was killing himself (so he could get jetpack, rockets and sniper). And every time he killed himself, I stole his weapons before he respawned, meaning he had to kill himself again. Lulz.

    Thanks to everyone who I played with last night for our impromptu gaming session! Much, much fun ๐Ÿ˜€ And I will see some of you later for our tourny game, woooo!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. AceRay96 says:

    Seen this LD one too many times now. Probably do the other 3 and blow this one off.

    • SensoryFour34 says:

      That’s so cool! ๐Ÿ˜€ I was just playing with him last night. If anyone deserves to be on there, he does.

  4. Brian says:

    What does LD stand for?

  5. Brian says:

    and also slaso and laso?

    • Scruff 815 says:

      LD = Legendary, Deathless
      LASO = Legendary, All Skulls On
      SLASO = Solo Legendary, All Skulls On

    • Gengo23 says:

      LD – Not sure. Legendary Deathless (?)

      LASO – Legendary, All Skulls On

      SLASO – Single-player, Legendary, All Skulls On

  6. thegoatboy says:

    Thank you thumb drive saves… makes LASO and L.D. challenges so simple.

    • Zidane says:

      Thumb drive?

      • Oreo (Lothorn) says:

        I’ve got a Nightfall LASO save on a thumbdrive. When you start the game it asks what memory device to use or saving, which is where you select the thumbdrive or hard drive.

        Basically, all you do is get a bunch of them and do your SLASO run to the last checkpoint before the end of the mission. Save and quit, and you now have an easy way to complete the mission for the next time it comes up. Use a different drive for each mission, and be sure you don’t do anything like changing skulls or missions with that drive in. Every time you go to campaign it will continue from the last save. Easy cR once you get it set up.

    • digipatd says:

      This whole time I thought you had a separate hard drive…

  7. I think Long Night Of Solace is one of the toughest missions in Reach. Ive done it plenty of times before on LD, but i think im gonna sit this one out. Just not in the mood.

    • Zidane says:

      Im not keen on the Laso’s etc, I prefer kill x amount especially in the weekly

  8. Zidane says:

    Aart from halo charts and stats on bungie is there and easier way to surmise the medals I haven’t got?

  9. tonsterdamus says:

    Who the hell would torture themselves with this campaign challenge just for 5000 credits ….its absurd!
