11th February – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Sorry for the delay on this folks, I wrote it at midday but it didn’t post when I thought it had, and I’m only just back from the party below!!

Well the ending of Saints Row the Third was good. And I was especially pleased when the game allows you to re-enter the mission having completed it once so you can do the alternate ending, rather than play through it all again. Bravo THQ.

I’m off to my nephew’s first birthday party. Well, tea with friends more than a party, but should be fun!

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Covenant-cide – Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3200 cR
  2. Not as Clumsy or Random… – Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000 cR
  3. Aggressive Negotiations – Earn at least 19 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1900 cR
  4. Who’s the Big Winner? – Win 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 10,000 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

Covenant-cide – Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3200 cR

You could do this in one game of Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack or some of the other variants. 2X is good because you’re likely to get slightly more than 120 so it takes account of TKs from the Covvies.

Not as Clumsy or Random… – Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000 cR

Jump into a Team SWAT match, take out some guys and it’s an easy top up of 2000 credits. Precision weapons are the DMR, Focus Rifle, Needle Rifle and Sniper Rifle.

Aggressive Negotiations – Earn at least 19 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1900 cR

Grifball is always a good option for this. It’s easy to get lots of kills, especially if you swap around your team holding the bomb to make games last longer. Squad Slayer, Multi-Team and Halo Ball Extreme are also excellent choices, and if you’re good at Rumble Pit you’ll be able to do this in that game type too.

Who’s the Big Winner? – Win 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 10,000 cR

This is just a little bit of a grind. Go for Team Slayer/SWAT/Snipers/Objective/Grifball/Action Sack game types so you only have two teams playing and a better chance of winning. I’d also recommend finding some guys you play well with and sticking with them. You’ll get lots of credits from the games and then a tasty tasty 10k bonus on winning your 12th. That’s all worth the gravy in my book.

    Last time I remember it was 23 kills for 10000 credits in 1 game. 19 for 1900? 100 Credits per kill. Oh so lame. Today is not worth playing for.

      When was that? I don’t think they would make it 23 for 10,000. That’s a bit much. I would expect about 3000 for that number.

        The challenge was called “Freelancing”and worth 10,000cr back on 12/9/2011. Google…use it…love it! 😉

        Interestingly, the Big Winner challenge also appeared on that day for 10,000cr. THAT was a good day!

    Slightly unrelated I am going to predict next week’s weekly challenge. I bet it’s going to be New Alexandria LASO. It’s been awhile since we had that one. I’ll probably be wrong, but I’m willing to bet it will be some type of LASO we haven’t had in a long time. Of course my next wish is the campaign on heroic, maybe I’ll get lucky 2 weeks in a row.

      If you guess the weekly correctly again come Monday morning, you are DEFINITELY going to give me some numbers this time to play in some local lottery here!!!
