28th March – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

I have been playing Draw Something on my phone for about a week now, with 15 or so games ongoing. However you’ve heard me say before that games without goals and objectives don’t engage me very well, so my attention is already waning (at least until I get a tablet with a stylus because then it’s game on!). But Temple Run is now out on Android so that’s definitely grabbing my focus. Not only does it have quick accessible gameplay, it’s got achievements too!

Om nom nom tasty cheevo’s 🙂

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Fire When Ready – Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1100 cR
  2. Supporting Role – Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1500 cR
  3. Pod Kettle Black – Kill 20 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace – 1200 cR
  4. Who’s the Big Winner? – Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 5343 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

Fire When Ready – Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1100 cR

As ever, Grifball, and you’ll get this in a game or two. Try and get at least one buddy to hold the bomb whilst you play for kills (and vengeance), or hold the bomb yourself and pick off the other team as they come at you with hammers.

Supporting Role – Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1500 cR

Any of the Matchmaking variants will work well here, particularly Rocketfight or Sniperfight. If you can buddy up to do this (ie Firefight Doubles) you’ll get it quicker rather than just playing and hoping, plus you can reciprocate to the other person too. Don’t forget an assist is 40% or more damage to an enemy that is killed within 4 seconds by someone else.

Pod Kettle Black – Kill 20 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace – 1200 cR

This is NOT trying to destroy drop pods in the ground based combat. This is when you play Long Night of Solace from Rally Point Alpha and you’re in the space combat section. After the first section defending the station, you take on a Covvie Corvette. That Corvette launches fighters at you. At the same time, it also launches 6 pods (2 groups of 3) from the bottom of the ship towards the planet. You can see them streak away. You can’t target them with missiles, and you have to be close to shoot them, but those are the Elite Drop Pods. It registers your kills after each wave have disappeared (entered Reach’s atmosphere). So go into that bit of the mission and fly beneath the corvette taking out all the pods you can and you’ll get it easy.

Who’s the Big Winner? – Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 5343 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 too.

    Speaking of Draw Something, me and my friend recently hit streak 99, which is the highest you can go.
    Whoopla.

    Talk about cheap payouts…

    The only one worth doing is Fire When Ready, if only because it is easy. If you play Reach bare minimum for the challenges then jump into grifball and get this done in two games.

    Agreed crappy payouts. I blame 343i

    • JThomas says:

      It’s unreal…it seem’s like 343 changes their payouts one day good to the next terrible. I understand they’re probably hoping people do custom challenges on the days the payouts are bad but let’s be honest, people are going to do custom regardless and a lot of people love doing the dailys if they are worth it…today is not one of those days.
