25th March – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

I wrote a post earlier on my personal blog about the scary moments from a few games that have stayed with me. Have a read and feel free to add any from video games that have affected you in the past.

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Covenant-cide – Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking 3200 cR
  2. Short, Controlled Bursts – Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today – 2500
  3. Katanarama – Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR
  4. Better, Closer, Warmer – Earn at least 9 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2343 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.

Short, Controlled Bursts – Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today – 2500

Automatic weapons are those that fire repeatedly, namely the Assault Rifle, Plasma Repeater, Plasma Rifle, Needler and Spiker. In Campaign you want a mission with lots and lots of enemies quickly. As usual, Winter Contingency’s a good one as it’s not too hard, and the enemies come quickly. Stick to Normal difficulty so you don’t have to spend too long. There are tricks in some places like Rally Point Bravo on The Package where you can get a checkpoint just before a group of Grunts so you can take out 5 quickly, then restart checkpoint and do it again.

Katanarama – Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

The easiest way I see of getting this is playing score attack or 2x Score Attack and getting to the Elites at the end. One of them carries a sword (more than one in 2x), and will of course rush you. Once you’ve taken him out, grab the sword then go after his buddies. Fiesta Fight is your alternative, fun, option, where you may get given the sword at some point if you die and respawn.

Better, Closer, Warmer – Earn at least 9 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2343 cR

Multiplayer, 9 kills. Should be easy in most formats, go with your best, Slayer, Rumble Pit, Grifball, Team SWAT, whatever really, should be quick and easy.

    I haven’t played since thursday, too bad I missed the easy ones. 1000 for one kill, the campaign and firefight challenges. I’m sick and tired of playing though, it’s always the same thing. So instead of playing the dailies I’ve been playing RAGE.

    I’ll get on top play with my brother tomorrow and do the weekly, if it isn’t an impossible MM one. I always love seeing the new weekly though. If it sucks then I’ll play another halo game cooperatively.
