24th March – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Well I finished ME3 this morning. I can understand the ire and furore the ending has caused, it’s not done very well in my opinion. But it’s still a triumph of a game that I recommend to everyone. Just… there should have been more to the end of the gameplay at least.

I’ll be writing a couple more posts about it on Mass Effect Musings this weekend, for now I’ve done one just about my experiences without too much opinion in there if you want a read.

Anyway, today’s challenges are:

  1. One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3500 cR
  2. This is my Rifle – Earn 100 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1500 cR
  3. Not as Clumsy or Random – Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000 cR
  4. The Love of the Game – Complete 17 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3700 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3500 cR

You get 120 Grunts in Gruntpocalypse, about 100 enemies in Score Attack, 120-135 in 2X SA, and something like 330 in a Firefight Matchmaking game (although split between up to 4 people). If you need to ‘top up’ your FF kills, jump into a game of Generator Defense or Crashsite and once you have your kills give up the defense.

This is my Rifle – Earn 100 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1500 cR

Woah, bad credit return. Can’t see many going specifically for this one. 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.

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

Hilarious when coming after the last one. 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.

The Love of the Game – Complete 17 games in multiplayer Matchmaking- 3700 cR

Check out this weekly challenge post for lots of detail on getting through games quickly. It might take a bit of time but there’s no limitation on winning or weapons etc. Fastest games are often Infection as they go really quickly I find. Equally, it’s a good chance to try out different variants you might not have played, so jump in BTB, Rumble Pit and Arena to see what they’re like. And of course you can win 3 rounds of Grifball in 30 seconds if you’re just going for the bomb and the score, although you might get avoided for ‘playing the wrong way!’ :D

    No way am I going to play 17 games of MM, even on a Saturday. This is my rifle credit payout is horrible, but what else is new. I’ll probably still try to do it though.

    17 games completetion for 3700, 100 rifle kills for 1500. This is why i don’t bother playing matchmaking. They give out these ridiculous bonuses for firefight and similar sized ones for campaign, but mtchmaking is retarded. That throwing fireballs one is one of the worst, but beside that are the 100 precision weapon kills, or small arms, or automatic weapons kills in 1 day. Take the 1 sword kill in firefight. 1 kill in firefight for 1000 credits, while it takes 100 rifle kills in matchmaking and you only get 1500 credits.
