21st October – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

***Update*** – The challenge has indeed been changed to Double Double. See the commentary for details.

First thing’s first, Your Daily Dose is very much broken. It’s a weekly challenge that got lost, or thought it lost weight or something, and is listing as a daily challenge, but requires 4 dailies to complete. I’ve sent a message to a couple of 343i people, and BSAngel has said on halo.xbox.com that it’s being looked into. From times when we’ve seen bugged challenges before nothing’s going to happen though and we’ll probably get extra credit or particularly easy/interesting challenges tomorrow as an apology. I’ll update later if anything happens though.

The holiday continues. Yesterday ended up being a very lazy day, had an amazing breakfast in Campbell (corned beef hash, eggs, bagel, sausages, pancakes, waffles, syrup….OMG so wrong but yet so right). Wandered around Campbell which was a quaint little place (historic Downtown… must be at least 50 years old!! (as a comparison the village I’m from is listed in the Domesday book in 1086).) There was an amazing comic store that had the BEST collection of M:TG stuff in, boosters from Mirage, Fallen Empires, Ice Age, a huge amount of singles, accessories…I was tempted to just give my Amex and walk away with the lot!

Today into SF. Thanks for all the suggestions and ideas, I’ve already done a few on previous visits, and there’s other CA events planned for my trip (a day or two in Yosemite for instance), so I can’t promise I’ll get to them, but much appreciated. As ever though I’ll be listening to Metallica on the drive into the City. Just feel’s right, y’know?

Anyway, today’s challenges:

  1. More Than a Handful – Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR
  2. Your Daily Dose – Complete all of the Daily Challenges for a given day – 7777 cR
  3. Better, Closer, Warmer – Earn at least 9 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2343 cR
  4. Credits for Completion – Complete 6 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

More Than a Handful – Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 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. If you can make an area in an Infection game defensible as a human you can rack up kills quickly.

Your Daily Dose – Complete all of the Daily Challenges for a given day – 7777 cR

As above, this is totally glitched and won’t work at the moment. It’s being looked into. All I can say is get the other three challenges so if they fix it that you only need 3 of 4 to get this you’re sorted.

Double Double – Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Double Kills are fairly easy to pick up,in Grifball especially. Multi Team will usually see you get 3 or 4, as you naturally get more people, closer together. Grenades and Heavy Weapons are your friend here. Really it’s whatever game you play well in.

Better, Closer, Warmer – Earn at least 9 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2343 cR

Should be easy in most formats, go with your best game type, Slayer, Rumble Pit, Grifball, Team SWAT… even low kill volume games should see 9 per person achievable.

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

Strange that the credit return for this hasn’t been doubled – obviously something peculiar going on today. This is just completion, not wins, so easy to do. Grifball and score with the bomb really quickly, once you’ve got your kills for the first challenge.

    a glitched challenge? And it would be the one with the highest payout – _ –

    When you go to yosemite, just watch were you get gas, some areas of fresno are just plain dangerous! When I was 16, me, a friend and a younger brother walked
    2 blocks, we were offered drugs, apon refusal, they decided they would intimdate money out of us. We ran! Damn, adrenaline makes a difference. If that would have been now, we would have been shot. That was 24 yrs ago, and it hasn’t improved at all.

    Yosemite is cool though!

    Enjoy!

    Added as a replacement: Double Double Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking. 200cR

  4. Bradley Clarke says:

    WTF! a glitched challenge, my friend is UBER-raging over not getting this challenge, it’s the one day he decides to get alll the daily challenges lol

    • Scruff 815 says:

      It happens. It’s not like the other challenges were difficult. If one of the challenges had been an L.D. Campaign challenge then yeah, I’d be furious too, but playing 6 games of MM and managing to kill at least 9 people in one game was not exactly a hardship.

  5. SW1NE FLU says:

    I got 25 kills and 9 kills one in a game of swat “uncaged”. And finished out with grifball. I’m super pissed about this 7777cr challenge not working

  6. T1M3C0NSUM3R says:

    Those 7,777 cR were a tease! I may never love again!

  7. SamCiphus says:

    Had a few games of SWAT yesterday with T1M3C0NSUM3R, pity I couldn’t get my eye in! If anyone wants to play today, i’ll be on in half an hour, for about 2 – 3 hours.

      Thanks for the game today. We were lagging out so bad that we were spawning dead. Guess we’ll be sticking to matches on this side of the pond.
      Cheers!

  8. Shamboola says:

    Oops. Someone hit the wrong challenge button this morning. I was salivating over that rather bloated payout for a simple group of challenges. I guess the parents came in and took over for the naughty kids.

    Play On!

  9. Project shave says:

    Anyone else notice that the cR payout has gone back to normal? The last good payout was for LD oni.

  10. Will Cline says:

    I got all of today’s challenges done in six games of Griffball!!!

    heh.

    Had someone finally message me about my RDC tag. Need to sign back on and send them a friend request.

  12. DIXX U99 says:

    Played in the morning and got two, thought to myself i’ll get the other one later due to normal family life. I check on rdc late last night and am informed i am to be raped and that 343 has made a mistake and i will be getting no 7777cr They better come through today and give a kind of free challenge for double the points. i did do all four challenges last night by the way cause of just bloody principal.

  13. Mister X says:

  14. Chris says:
