11th December – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Christmas song of the day is something cheerier, and the start of what will probably be several songs about Father Christmas over the next couple of weeks. Bowling For Soup (yep, them again) performing ‘Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy’. A country Christmas classic done in modern pop-rock style. Frankly, it’s awesome, and you know that these guys from Texas probably grew up hearing this song.

And after a late night, high volume, Led Zeppelin session to drown out my neighbours TV I’m enjoying having lots of loud music on. It’s actually making me feel a bit chirpier.

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2343 cR
  2. The Magic Number – Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3000 cR
  3. The House of Blue Leaves – Kill 177 enemies in a single Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic – 1300 cR
  4. This Is My Rifle… – Earn 77 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1400 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.

The Magic Number – Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3000 cR

If you want quick game types, Infection and Grifball can be very very quick, so run through them a couple of times and you’re good.

The House of Blue Leaves – Kill 177 enemies in a single Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic – 1300 cR

One game? So… Firefight Doubles is probably your best bet. Firefight Arcade can work if you get fewer than 4 people (or you’ve got a broadband connection like mine and it pushes you out of a game with other people).

This Is My Rifle… – Earn 77 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1400 cR

Precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper Rifle, Focus Beam and Needle Rifle. Team SWAT will do you well here. Unless you use melee or Pistol every kill will be a precision weapon kill, so play it a few times, try and get a good team who will cover your back (and you theirs), and just do this over 2 or 3 games.
