Commentary follows after the break…

More than a Handful – Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Multi Team Battle or Grifball are the best ways to get lots and lots of kills, you tend to get more than any other modes. If you play Crazy King or Oddball you can get even more as some people who would shoot you go for the objective, and you can take them out. Seasoned Grifball players will also be able to get this in only a game or two, and if you can make an area in an Infection game defensible as a human you can rack up kills quickly.

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

If you want to do this specifically (as you’ll get 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.

Return of the Mack – Kill 35 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder – 1500 cR

There are two good ways of getting this – ONI: Sword Base, where just playing through there are 30-40 I think, and it’s definitely worth using the target designator at the beginning on the first group (run hugging the right wall, grab the TD, either turn around and blast, then reset to last checkpoint, or try to get through the Wraiths, TD them then reset checkpoint). Or play Nightfall and try to get a checkpoint near the first Elite, then snipe or assassinate him, and again reset to last checkpoint. This is quicker but you get more kills and commendations on the ONI TD trick. Perhaps you can work on this as you do your 9 run throughs of Nightfall today for the Weekly.

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

150 is a lot, but I’d say do two 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse matches somewhere for up to 120-130 headshots in each. Or for your second top up jump into a Crash Site/Generator Defense to get however many headshots you need.

    easy enough challenges today. 1 game of grifball, target locator farming on sword base, and then gruntpoc with the magnum (like i needed an excuse to bump up my small arms commendation lol)

  2. lolgtfoplz says:

    should be back into the swing of things this week, looked at a apartment yesturday and had that concernt on saturday. i dont even care about spelling this morning, just want workday to get over. lol. challenges are easy. w00t

  3. lolgtfoplz says:


    you didn’t really have to stop scrolling.

    anyways, i was on beachead, and i’m always that guy in arcade fight that destroys your ghost, jerkmove, i know. but i guess this game saturday i did it to the wrong guys. because for the next, 14:30 of the game, they spent the entire time blasting me trying to get me off the ledge with rocket launchers, fuel rod guns, and concussion rifles, i couldn’t snipe a thing…

    i think i have learned my lesson. . . .

    • lolgtfoplz says:

      by concussion rifles i mean dino blasting gun, idk that pos that theoneinyellow uses against me -.-

    • gans42 says:

      well now i know not to play FF with you, only MM. i hate the players that purposefully screw with the other players

    • Shane says:

      Yeah, whenever someone does that to me, I spend most of the time blasting them and getting them killed. Thing is, I’ve onyxed that commendation so I’m not too bothered about them being jerks but usually I get *them* really mad (abusive text messages, screaming down their mics).

      You shouldn’t have needed to learn this lesson.

      • Scruff 815 says:

        True story. If I’m with a random who does that, I spend the entire rest of the game making life hard for them, and then leave them an ‘avoid player’ immediately afterwards.

      • lolgtfoplz says:

        “shane” i’m not exactly sure where your cartoon is hinting to, but i found it annoying and repulsive. this “anonymity” is not evident at RDC for myself, people know who i am here. I was telling a story between myself and those who i communicate DAILY within the RDC community. So you Mr. internet tough guy can go screw yourself. KTHXBAI.

      • 3py0nz3r0 says:

        @lolgtfoplz : I agree with Shane, Scruff 815, porottaja, and gans42, in saying you deserved it. Coming on here to post and brag about it, makes me really think you need to grow up. I hope the big guy comes in here and deletes your posts for telling others to go screw themselves. I didn’t really see anything posted by anyone to deserve that. But now, Shane’s “penny arcade” comic fits you to a “T”, the formula does work! 🙂

      • lolgtfoplz says:

        wasn’t bragging, people always come in here and tell stories, i hope matthew vose does delete this because i’m getting pissed off.

      • lolgtfoplz says:

        when did i ever even say i was bragging about anything?

      • lolgtfoplz says:

        didn’t know everybody was going to be all butthurt about it. ffs.

      • lolgtfoplz says:

        oh well, i really dgaf, i’ll just keep pawning noobs. you can be mad about it, i got stuff to do.

      • gans42 says:

        lolgtfoplz dont lump the newcomers being jerks to you with the originals just joking around with you

      • Matthew Vose says:

        No I’m not deleting it. You posted a story about being a jerk. You admitted it’s a jerk thing to do. You agreed you deserved it. So why get all bent out of shape when people react to show you exactly how badly it comes across?

        And also laughable having a go at Shane, pretty much the longest regular commenter on the blog (first comment was 2nd December 2010).

        The lesson to learn here is not just ‘don’t be a jerk’, but don’t then tell people about it thinking they’ll not react like it’s a stupid way to behave. If you don’t want the vitriol, don’t talk about something that produces that reaction.

  4. 'Cos says:

    Wow…just Wow!

  5. Oreo (Lothorn) says:

    Lolgtfoplz, I think you forgot the quotes around “their”, which is why some people didn’t understand your humor.

    Good story, though,

    Back OT, easy challenges today. Got them all done, including the weekly, in a little over an hour or hour and 30 while making cornbread and baking cookies.

    Had the day off with no one home, so the time was all mine after taking care of some other business. Thank you, Nightfall LASO save.
