Commentary follows after the break…

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2000 cR

Best options for this specifically:

  • Forge – make a game with players spawning in one spot and camp it
  • Firefight – Download my Firefight Invincible game type on my File Share, lots of Elites, lots of medals, lots of kills (plus ‘cheevos if you’ve not done the Firefight ones)
  • ONI: Sword Base – Use the Target Designator trick (run past everyone at the beginning, grab it, turn around, fire, wait for the killing to stop and restart the checkpoint)
  • Package – There are points where you can get a checkpoint just before a number of Grunts appear in the final battle, so you can gun them down and restart

The Little Guys – Kill 75 Grunts in the Campaign today on Normal or harder – 1000 cR

Winter Contingency, Exodus or The Package are excellent for Grunts.  The opening of ONI Sword Base has one useful trick – go straight to the Target Designator, turn around and blast some Grunts, then reset to checkpoint. It’s a quick way of doing it, although I prefer playing through levels to up various commendations. Ryan suggested something similar on The Package, throwing a grenade just before the checkpoint so that every time you reset it goes off and takes out a few Grunts. ONI: Sword Base can also be good by just taking out the few who are in front of you at the start then restarting the mission, but if you go for the TD you get lots of big commendations too.

L.D. Package – Complete the Package, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt and Tough Luck on – 5000 cR

This is one mission we’ve never had on a daily, only the Weekly LASO challenges. As ever, you’ve gotta play through the whole thing (unless you’ve done it before and saved a checkpoint on a memory stick for it), so you’re best guide is the Mythic guide which can be found by following this link.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution – Earn 7 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1400 cR

EOD weapons include: Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Spartan Laser, Plasma Launcher, and the Concussion Rifle. The very best modes for this are found in the Action Sack game types. I prefer DinoBlasters – you’re given a Concussion Rifle with an unlimited clip, so these kills should be really simple. Other good options are BOOMBall and Splockets.

      Not much of a “Challenge”, the dying part that is, but I will give it a shot. 😉

  5. gans42 says:

    screw LD, i dont do campaign missions anymore unless its WC or nightfall (or im really bored), the others are easy enough, got em all in 2 games of action sack (shotgun assault and dino blasters), target locator farming for the 75 grunts, and 1 game of 2x score attack and i hit my 400 kills (well 402)…it was great how perfectly it worked out.

    on a side not, i came so close to a killing fenzy in dino blasters on zealot, but my teammate freaking betrayed me at 9 kills. weeeeeaaaaaak

  6. Zidane says:

    Anyone up for swat?

  7. André says:

    Skipped the 7 explosive kills because they all voted against dino blasters etc. So annoying 3 games in a row. 400 kills I used LD then the package bravo checkpoint for some easy grunt kills.

  8. deffo know that i will die a good twenty times lol. im not the most savvy at halo but ill give a damn right go 🙂

    Amy.
