Halo Reach Weekly Challenge & Commentary – w/c 9th April

This week’s challenge is below, click Read More to view the commentary:

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts – Win 25 games in multiplayer Matchmaking this week – 18343 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

The challenge name is a reference to Friday Night Lights, apparently a speech and phrase often used to pep up the players and motivate them. Fourth time we’ve had this weekly too.

Anyway… what game types give you a better chance of winning? Rule #1 is definitely play a 2 team gametype. If you’ve got Rumble Pit, Infection or Multi Team going there are so many competitors that you’ve got to be pretty good to get the big W. Game types that you should be looking at:

  1. Grifball – Can be really easy to win, everyone gets annoyed at someone who grabs the bomb and scores quickly but it is easy and you can win a game in a minute or two
  2. Team Slayer/SWAT/Action Sack/Objective… – Any of the Team gametypes are good. 2 teams so you’ve got a higher chance of winning, especially if you trust your team and can play well together
  3. Invasion – Longer games and slightly trickier to win, but they’re really good at helping the whole gammut of Commendations, plus often help with the Challenges too
  4. Arena – Arena can be really tough as it’s some of the best players, but it’s still the same idea of two teams battling it out

There are more gametypes, frankly pick your best and keep at it. This is a proper weekly challenge that you can build on during the week, and then at the weekend top up if you need any more for it, look out for Daily Challenges that help too.

    I’m liking this weekly for sure! It’s pretty easy but not too easy and still a respectable payout amount. Def like the fact that I can play any games I would normally to have fun and can work on this at the same time….good call 343!

    I did all the dailies today, no grifball used for any of them. The firefight ones were so boring to do. I swear I don’t even want to finish my firefight goal. I want onyx backup, max dome inspector and methodical, and silver perfectionist. Don’t know how many games of btb I did but got 5 wins today, and all the multiplayer challenges without resorting to boring grifball. 5 a day should be an easy win, better than 77 games.

    Ugh! Well, I’m halfway there…no thanks to the TKers, quitters, and unskilled randoms! 😦 I enjoyed a good mix of SWAT, Anniversary Slayer, and Super Slayer. Because of last week’s weekly challenge, I’m all Grifballed out. Tomorrow, I’ll probably hang out in Action Sack a bit so long as people don’t vote on Hockey and Haloball a lot. Depending on the daily challenges, I may even meander over to BTB in spite of the lengthier matches for a little Heavies mayhem. Have a good day, all!
