13th February – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

I’ve been playing Rayman Origins since finishing Saints Row The Third. It is as fun and well designed as I’ve read. I’m a little worried there’s not many mechanics in it, the levels are becoming a tad repetitive early on but we’ll see if it adds some variety as we go. It’s definitely worth a play at least, a very polished platformer!

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2343 cR
  2. Golden Opportunity – Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder – 5343 cR
  3. Weapon Swap – Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder – 2000 cR
  4. Credits for Completion – Complete 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2800 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

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

If you’re going for just this challenge you’ve got a few choices for doing this really easily and quickly…

  • Forge – make a game with players spawning in one spot and camp it
  • Firefight – Download my Firefight Invincible game type on my File Share, lots of Elites, lots of medals, lots of kills
  • ONI: Sword Base – Use the Target Designator trick (run past everyone at the beginning, grab it, turn around, fire, wait for the killing to stop and restart the checkpoint)
  • Package – There are points where you can get a checkpoint just before a number of Grunts appear in the final battle, so you can gun them down and restart

Golden Opportunity – Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder – 5343 cR

Your best bet is Winter Contingency from Rally Point Alpha. Follow this excellent guide to find the Gold Elite on all levels, or this comment from MJOLNIR Tester previously about finding him quickly on WC. We’ve also had lots of discussion on one particular Gold Ranger in New Alexandria.

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

Sprees are hard for weapons, especially in Firefight. I reckon Gruntpocalypse or some other easy Score Attack variant, get the 50 kills medal, then die and do another 50. You get 120 kills in Gruntpoc so it’s an easy way to do it. Alternatively use the Shotgun for three, sticky grenades, Swords, Hammers and anything else you can that gives a spree (this list on Halopedia shows all Spree medals available) to top up the killing sprees as well.

Credits for Completion – Complete 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2800 cR

This is just completion, not wins, so easy to do. Grifball and score with the bomb really quickly is best really.

    Just got the weekly done on Sword Base, now going for the golden elite and the other challenge also. Good day of playing this is 🙂

      Hi,

      What skulls did you use/difficulty on Sword Base? Did you just keeping hitting the Phantom at the AA gun?

      • My Little Housing Blog says:

        I am not a very advanced player, so I only use Heroic and the skulls are Tough Luck, Catch, Cloud and Famine. That is enough for me. I just shoot as many Phantoms needed until I have the score I want, just let Kat drive.

      • Dan says:

        I used all but tilt mythic black eye iron blind, on legendary. And yes, wraith blows up phantom.

  3. Rossco says:

    All four daily’s done and I reached reclaimer.

  4. ikyouCrow says:

    just wanted to share that the BOB on ONI Sword Base, even though not gold still gets you the challenge complete. i suppose all BOBs are created equal.

  5. Snowball says:

    Beat the weekly doing Heroic New Alexandria. Killing 122 Banshees and 16 Phantoms with Catch, Cloud, Famine, Tilt, Mythic, Cowbell, Grunt Birthday Party skulls active. 1 hour of hunting. :/

  6. Dan says:

    Setting up some custom challenges, and do you find you get varied results? sometimes I set 1000 kills in firefight and the reward is 10k cr, but today its 7k. Same goes for headshots in firefight, 400 net me 10k before now its 500 for 7k. 500 headshots, i’ll be able to get small arms past 7k, and hopefully get riflin thru past 9k. I want them all at onyx! sorry for being off topic, I find I get better feedback here than on 343i forums.
