4th November – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Thank you for the kind words yesterday everyone. My uncle and I were very close, so this is a sad time. Posts are likely to be erratic at times over the coming weeks.

No commentaries again today, but use the search bar to look up any challenges and see previous commentaries:

  1. Gunslinger – Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3500 cR
  2. Single Wield – Earn 100 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3000 cR
  3. Twin Trips – Earn 2 Triple Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR
  4. Home Field Advantage – Win 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 4400 cR

    Sorry again Matthew. And thanks for taking the time to still post; even though these challenges don’t really need a description of how to do them, the opportunity to discuss them is still very much appreciated.

    Thanks to all for game night last night! Mucho fun as usual πŸ™‚

    As for these challenges, as much as I’d love to get them I really don’t think I’m going to have anywhere near enough free time 😦 If you are going to attempt them though, I would suggest getting a party of four together and hitting up SWAT. Vote for Magnums every time, and aim for the win. The other challenges should come naturally, and if you still need pistol kills after your 8 wins (which is unlikely), hop into Living Dead for the usual betrayal-fest etc.

    • G says:

      The TU playlist is another possibility for Single Wield, if you fancy a bit of variety. The Magnums are nearly as good as the DMRs, and arguably better (if you’re accurate enough). Also these are team slayer games, so you still have a high chance of getting the win for Home Field Advantage. Twin Trips may prove a bit more difficult though if you do go for that playlist!

      • Scruff 815 says:

        That’s a good point on the TU playlist; hadn’t thought of that. Probably a better idea for if you go in as a random player, rather than a 4-man team.

      • G says:

        Good idea!

    What was that? You want me to re-post about Customs Night? Oh go on then. Just for you.

    A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY: Thursday November 10th is CUSTOMS NIGHT!

    Join me (Scruff 815) and gans42 on Thursday November 10th from 8pm UK time onwards (which will be 3pm Eastern; see http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html for other places) for an evening of Custom Games. We’ll be playing the best maps and game variants currently out there, along with some home-baked creations from various RDC & Halo Social community members, including three of my LOST-themed maps, and that spawn-death fest that is porottaja’s FFA Fiesta πŸ˜• . If you’ve got a map or a game variant to share with the world, this is the time to do it. But please try and have it support 16 people, just in case.

    Simply add one or both of us to your friends list, fire up Reach on the 10th, and hit X to join us. With no customs matchmaking search tools, we are entirely limited to the people who show up. No people = no game night. Try and have a mic if possible and don’t go AFK, and we’ll all get along just fine πŸ˜€

    Expect to see this post repeated in the comments for a little while until Matthew bans me or I accidentally copy and paste the wrong thing and lead you to a particularly strange video on Redtube, whichever happens first. πŸ˜‰

      I think Matthew’s too busy to ban you. Maybe once he’s got everything figured out he’ll ban you. πŸ˜‰ At least you got everything right this time. (Finally πŸ˜‰ )

  3. G says:

    I think we’re all grateful that you are posting at all, Matthew. I’m sure anyone who visits this site will understand if your posts are somewhat erratic (or even non existent) over the coming weeks.

    I love Halo, but family trumps cR everytime; my thoughts remain with you and yours.

  4. Peggy Peggy says:

    My thoughts are with you at this difficult time Matthew and lots of respect for keeping up with the challenges.

    Further to what Scruff recommended for the century of pistol kills, I’d also recommend the TU Beta playlist, where in both the 85% Bloom and Zero Bloom (ZB) gametypes, the pistol is unstoppable.

    Peggy Peggy FTW

    Matthew, very sorry to hear about your uncle. You have my condolences!

    1.Gunslinger – Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3500 cR

    grifball, playing regularly? most people will get this by accident lol

    2.Single Wield – Earn 100 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3000 cR

    swat pistols if you’re lucky or have a team of 4, otherwise zombies.

    3.Twin Trips – Earn 2 Triple Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

    grifball, swat, anything you’re good at and has a high kill volume

    4.Home Field Advantage – Win 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 4400 cR

    oddly enough I find team objective to have the fastest possible win times, the hard part is finding a good team who just wants to get this achievement

  7. DaRoflBandit says:

    The second there is a need for wins it becomes impossible to get them and I get 9 games where I lose in a row…….

    • Scruff 815 says:

      Yeah I know, it always seems to happen to me too. Your best bet is to play with a group of people; a lot of people here are very skilled, so if you’re in a team of 4 then you won’t get placed with crappy randoms who don’t know what they’re doing, and four people with mics also makes your gaming a lot more tactical.

      I’d join you but I’m not playing today. Just add the usual suspects and hopefully you can get it done, next time if not today.

    • Dragao1010 AKA: Brian says:

      if you ever wanna play grifball hit me up, i won’t let you down trust me πŸ˜›

      • crazybydefault says:

        He isn’t kidding either!

        Our winning streak was, what, 12 games that one time? πŸ˜€

  8. Robotperson says:

    Really sorry to read your news, Matthew. If there’s anything I can do – editing responsibilities etc, please let me know.

  9. LolGTFOplz says:

    Multiplayer; friday. paycheck; friday. dont have a 9 hour flight back from vegas this; friday. its; friday. goodluck on challenges, i’m having some pizza tonight and probably wont end up playing till later.

  10. crazybydefault says:

    Sorry to hear that Matthew 😦 It’s perfectly understandable if you don’t post anything in the next few weeks. Because family should come first before Halo!

  11. chriscray says:

    RDC! I want to get some, of not all challenges done. Hit me up, GT same as post name. Just got on, been busy today.

  12. chriscray says:

    I would a team of 4, so 3 more ‘peepes’ would be the sh!t!

  13. chriscray says:

    BTW, I’m est

  14. chriscray says:

    Sorry, that’s EST, As in easy coast US

  15. Quillian86 says:

    Hello, sorry I didn’t say this sooner, but my sincerest and most heartfelt condolences for your loss.

  16. Eric says:

    With the two triple kills you can do it in Griffball(if available).
