4th April – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

I was randomly reminded of this yesterday – outtakes of Jen Taylor (Cortana and Dr Halsey) trying to say ‘Bet you can’t stick it’ and, well, hilarity ensues. Not sure why I thought of it, but it seemed a good thing to share with you lovely people!

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Fire When Ready – Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1100 cR
  2. Survivor – Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 2000 cR
  3. Home Field Advantage – Win 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1600 cR
  4. Headshot Honcho – Kill 11 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2640 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.

Survivor – Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 2000 cR

You get 120 kills in Gruntpoc so it’s an easy way to do it. If you can get kills using weapons (ie 5 grenade sticks, a shotgun, sniper rifle etc) then you get nearer the total – use Score Attack to get a range of weapons. Beachhead is quite good as you can use the vehicles to get more sprees – and now on Firefight Arcade you’ve got a good chance of using a variety of weapons, lots of killing sprees and grenades and the like.

Home Field Advantage – Win 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1600 cR

Stick to Team Slayer/SWAT/Snipers/Objective/Grifball/Action Sack for this. In those there are only two teams so your chances of winning are greatly improved. If you find a group of guys you play well with then stick with them.

Headshot Honcho – Kill 11 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2640 cR

Team SWAT every time for this. It’s in one game, but in SWAT you should easily get this number of headshots. If you’re not confident in your ability then perhaps try voting for an objective SWAT game, like Stockpile or 3 Plots, since there’s no kill volume target in them which should help you.

    Crappy payouts again. Looks like my time will be spent doing something else

      Glad I’m inheritor now payouts don’t mean anything to me at all. I just like completing challenges for the sake of it.

  2. Daniel says:

    I agree, you’d think the payouts would be larger after the game being out for a year and a half… Like Rossco, I just like completing them for giving a variety to my gameplay. Every time the survivor comes up I just get the spree, frenzy, then kill myself, repeat.

    Any heard what the weekly custom challenge bonus is? I haven’t seen a bulletin update yet. Looks like Saber bonus is still on
