17th March – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

I am about to launch into the end of Mass Effect 3, but I want to do everything first so I’m hitting up multiplayer. It’s good fun, essentially a variant on Horde/Firefight, but with some of the perks and upgrades you get in CoD type games.

I’m enjoying it so far although I need to spend a lot more time with it to figure how best to play. My usual charge in firing technique is not endearing to squadmates it seems! I’ll be writing something fuller on it on my ME blog at some point.

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Covenant-cide – Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3200 cR
  2. You Want This, Don’t You? – Earn 14 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000 cR
  3. Weapon Swap – Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder 2000 cR
  4. Put Your Quarter Up – Complete 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3200 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.

You Want This, Don’t You? – Earn 14 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000 cR

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 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.

Put Your Quarter Up – Complete 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3200 cR

Complete these games. Don’t drop out. Get to the end of each. Just play through them. Doesn’t matter if you win or lose. Sorry, I can’t drag out this explanation any further. Is there a way of doing this quickly? Grifball can be very quick depending on if someone goes for the score straight away! Halo Ball can be quick, as can Infection, but Infection these days often lasts a while as Humans camp.

    Matthew thanks for the tips. FF challenges today were easy to complete. I used score attack, 2×2 score attack on beachead. Starting with the shotgun load out got a shotgun spree and then switched to the pistol for a few grunts gave me 2 weapon swap, then using the ghost to run over lots of covies brought the total to about 7. Once I used the target locator was able to finish the
    weapon swap challenge. sometimes you can pick up a gravity hammer or sword if more sprees are needed. Happy St. Patricks day. ( the saint provided a small miracle for me today as 2×2 score attack on beachead came up in the second round of picks today ) cheers
