1st December – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Halo 2 has arrived. Hurrah. Now to see if I can actually get it playing!

If you check out this week’s Halo update on halo.xbox.com there’s lots of information about the upcoming update, which will change the structure for Matchmaking game types, muck around with the setup of the playlists, and raise the daily credit cap, which I know a lot of people will be happy about.

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2343 cR
  2. Demon – Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR
  3. The T.G. Opposition – Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun – 3000 cR
  4. Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

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

If you do a score attack game in something like 2x Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse, then the challenges below you’ll be very close to 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.

Demon – Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR

A lot of the unusual solo Firefight MM variants give around 25 Elites these days – 2X, Fiesta etc. Firefight Doubles might well be a good way to go here if you pick Arcadefight on a map you both like, although I’m not sure if that’ll give you 100 Elites to split. So as above, do 2x score attack twice and you should get this.

The T.G. Opposition – Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun – 3000 cR

The best way is 2X Score Attack on any map, particularly once the Brutes and Skirmishers turn up as they make real efforts to get to you. The Shotgun is one of the loadouts so you can use it for as long as you need, just let guys come to you rather than going into the fray.

Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR

Gruntpocalypse and 2x Score Attack are great ways of doing this, you should be looking to get a lot of headshots in a game, especially if it’s on a simple map where you can line up the Grunts, like Corvette or Courtyard. If you get to a high number rather than doing a whole game again jump in Crashsite or Generator Defense and only defend until you have your total then give up the goal.

    Really? Raise the cap? Finally!
    … Jumped over to read that article. Really nice. Didn’t really bother to understand all that with the updated playlists though, lol. I’ll take it and love it as it comes.

    Firefight Thursday! For the first time in a long time I’m actually gonna do the firefight challenges, and mirror them somewhat with customs, to try and max out the credit cap on my day off. Lol.
    Happy gaming! Looking forward to that raise in cR cap for future weekends and day off’s to come 😀

    LMAO!
    Ever since I first saw that daily challenge “kill xx Moa’s in the campaign today” I’ve always wanted a “Kill xx Gutas in the campaign”, mostly because they are really badass and most people don’t know what they’re called (even though they, contrary to Moa’s, are actually called by name in the campaign itself).
    So I set up a custom challenge for it to try it out, “kill 4 gutas in 3 hours”. 10 cR???? W00t? Totally unbalanced! Looks like the customs treat all enemies the same (i.e. 4 grunts would be fair to get 10 cR). The game is not racist. This is good.
    I imaged however the Gutas would pay out good 😛

    Anyway back to firefight

      Love it. I implore you Chris, start a campaign at halo.xbox.com forums to make the Guta credit return better. Some sort of ‘less equality, MOAR CREDITS!’ type thing 😀

      • ChrisStrawhat says:

        Yeah Matthew I’ll get right on that…
        As soon as I hit Inheritor 😀 I’m Eclipse right now so it should only be like three-four more days, right?

        Plz raise the cap soon, 343! Hit it at 7 o’clock this evening, way too soon :E
        Gave me time to get those ODST Achievements for the Reach armor pieces though.

    Thanks Scruff!

    Worked and reading it now!! Maybe I was looking so hard for it, I overlooked it… LOL

    Just short on time today and seem rushed in everything I’m doing….

  4. Peggy Peggy says:

    I didn’t see anything about what they were raising it too though????
    My guess would be 180k

    • ChrisStrawhat says:

      I hope they double it! 240k for the win!
      Not that I’m gonna hit it too often though, but it’s nice to keep going when you’re in the mood rather than suddenly playing pointlessly for no cR :E

  5. Dragao1010 AKA: Brian says:

    raise the daily eh, huh why not. Though i’ve only hit the cap twice, second being yesterday but hey now peeps can get to inheritor even quicker! Assuming they’re raising it to 180k it would take someone hitting the cap fresh off another halo game, around 115 days from nada to 20mil approximately, not bad at all.
