12th November – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Well I’m on my way to Hull for the England match. Whoever wins this gets the opportunity to lose to Australia in the final. Should be a good time though, for me rugby league is the best sport in the world. And I’ve seen a lot. Any of you get bored watching England be dominated by Spain in the football (soccer) feel free to tune in.

I failed to win a copy of Assassin’s Creed Revelations last night. Which is probably a good thing given I’ve not worked my way through Brotherhood yet. There is time, after Deus Ex is finished. And Anniversary. Then Arkham City. Oh and Gears of War 3. Plus Rayman Origins which sounds wonderful. Just in time for Mass Effect 3 right? Perhaps I’ll have that lot cleared by the time Halo 4 hits.

Today’s challenges are:

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2343cR

If you do a score attack game in something like 2x Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse, then a multiplayer game like Team SWAT, and finish up with the Exodus challenge below you should be incredibly close to, if not there, the 180 total. Other options are another score attack game, maybe Generator Defense or Crashsite for the final few, or a couple more games in multiplayer.

You Want This, Don’t You? – Earn 12 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 3000cR

Team SWAT, or maybe a Slayer DMR type game, will get you this. The main Multiplayer precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper Rifle and Needle Rifle.

Weapon Swap – Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder – 2000cR

Check out this page for a list of all Reach medals, including those for Sprees. Your best shot is as above a 2x Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse type game, and aim for staying alive till at least 50 kills (die and get another 50 is one way of doing this), plus mix it up with Shotgun, Sword, Sticky and other Spree types to get your total.

Roast ’em, Toast ’em – Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal – 3000 cR

Continuing the Campaign challenges in order running up to the release of Anniversary on Tuesday. Go to Rally Point Alpha of Exodus where you’re given a jet-pack and hop over to the platform. You need to make sure you’re actively firing the jet-pack when you get the kill otherwise it doesn’t count. 10 should be pretty easy, you can snipe the Grunts and Jackals before actually making it to the platform so getting a few that way. However it’s always good to grab the Rocket Launcher off the marine as you get to jet pack area, then just blast some Grunt packs. There was also a good suggestion from Turbo previously –pick up a Gravity Hammer from the Brute who runs at you, then hit fire and equipment at the same time when hitting someone.

New Alexandria tomorrow.

    So I got Skyrim, and it’s everything I hoped for and more! The problem is, it’s been a long time since i’ve played a proper medieval RPG, so i’ve got to adjust! It’s doubtful i’ll play Halo except when hanging out with mates, so adieu to you all for the time being!

    Good luck on challenges everyone!

      I’m optimistic we can get to the final, today should see a great game and huge support.

      My rule for England v Australia matches is to watch the first 60 minutes, then turn it off and assume the Aussies win. It’s yet to let me down. Sadly.

      • BJ2603 says:

        Good luck regardless Matt, I kinda want NZ to win because then we can take back what is rightfully ours from them directly 😉 that and I work with a lot of kiwis and it’s easier to give them a wind up if our boys despatch of them rather than yours 🙂
