12th April – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Watch this video to see the vidoc about the music being created for Halo 4. It’s a good sounding score, and the interesting beats make me eager to see the set pieces they’re put to in the game.

Today’s challenges are:

  1. Light Fare – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 3000 cR
  2. Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR
  3. Killagruntjaro! – Earn 25 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 3000 cR
  4. Be Their Huckleberry – Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol – 1500 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

Light Fare – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 3000 cR

If you want to do this specifically (as you’ll get it just playing for the other challenges) then jump into something on Score Attack, maybe Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack or Fiesta Attack to get it done quickly and rack up the kills.

Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR

Gruntpocalypse and 2x Score Attack are great ways of doing this, you should be looking to get a lot of headshots in a game, especially if it’s on a simple map where you can line up the Grunts, like Corvette or Courtyard. If you get to a high number rather than doing a whole game again jump in Crashsite or Generator Defense and only defend until you have your total then give up the goal.

Killagruntjaro! – Earn 25 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 3000 cR

In Gruntpocalypse or 2x Score Attack this is so easy. The Grunts come out of the doors/dropships/appear in groups of 4 or 5, and you can easily shoot 3 or 4 of them straight away. Multikills do stack so an Overkill counts as 3 – double, triple and 4 kills. Therefore just play the game and take them out when you see them together.

Be Their Huckleberry – Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol – 1500 cR

Try and get a Gruntpocalypse game in so you can stick to just the pistol, take out the little methane breathers as quick as possible then back in the menu to get it done. Some maps are definitely better than others, Corvette and Courtyard are small and easy to see across to take them out.

    Whoa…10,500 credits within a single game of firefight? I know the challenges are random, but it is nice that the “wheel” was spun this way to allow folks to concentrate on the weekly if they haven’t completed it already!

    • karma frenzy says:

      If u haven’t got the weekly by now give up kids I got that sad excuse of a weekly on tuesday and I only get on maybe 3 hours clann up!!!! Noobs P.S armor lock is for fagggs hahahha

      • Dogmeat says:

        Talking smack and bragging of your accomplishments without providing your GT to back up your claims…now where have we seen that before on this site?

      • karma frenzy says:

        And you what are u dumb karma frenzy is my gt I bet ur an amor locking fagget or haven’t even got 10 wins yet I’m not braging about my skill its a fact if u can’t get 25 wins in 3 days turn on ur console push the open tray button take out halo reach and GO PLAY SOME COD lmfaoooo

      • Dogmeat says:

        Easy there, SWATaholic! I found your GT a while back but had tried looking for your initial history on Bungie’s website. You’re unknown to them. What I did find on Waypoint and HaloTracker confirmed my suspicions. Nice K/D boosting in Grifball, for example.

        In the 8,000+ MP matches I have played, I have a grand total of 15 rejection medals that were all used to bring down vehicles in BTB. For someone who almost exclusively plays gametypes that don’t include armor lock as an AA, you sure like to talk about it a lot.

        I had my weekly done earlier in the week, no thanks to quitters and unskilled randoms. Fortunately for you, you stuck with some friends that knew how to play (and in some cases much better than you).

        Many people that come to this site don’t play until the weekend or only play a handful of matches a day. They are looking for tips on the best way to complete the challenges. There is still plenty of time to complete the weekly even if they haven’t started yet.

        As for the name calling, Matthew will deal with you soon enough.

      • Awesome Person says:

        Im with Dogmeat (DogMeatOnAStick) is an Inheritor with 100% armor and 97% comms (as of 4/1/12) and has a good history of BTB and medals. Sorry Karma!

  2. André says:

    Nice! looking forward to 10.500cR

  3. GodsGifttoHalo says:

    I’m looking forward to getting laid tonight, yeeehah
    That weekly was done on monday.

  4. Metal Zangief says:

    Right everyone is a noob because they have jobs children and lives outside of a game.

    Sounds like your either a spoiled kid with no responsibilities or your jobless and sitting in Mamas basement sucking up our unemployment as your too lazy to go get a job.

    Sorry rant over.

    Sarcasm aside, credits look good today.

    • Micah (SpartanM914) says:

      Yeah, having a job, wife, child, and household responsibilities really cuts into the gaming time, doesn’t it? 😉

      • GodsGifttoHalo says:

        It doesn’t for me I have a fulltime job running construction sites as a foreman. I cook and clean for my wife. I play baseball 3 to 4 nights a week. I still manage to get 3 hours of halo in a day and I completed weekly on monday.

      • GodsGifttoHalo says:

        Oh and I have 3 cats, 2 kids and a dog to take care of also.

      • André says:

        Completing the weekly on monday takes more than 3 hours…

      • André says:

        Thats if you play legit of course & not boost it.

    • karma frenzy says:

      Did u even read my post I sed I play maybe 3 hours a day if that I too have a full time job live on my own play sports and have a life out side the game sounds like u haven’t got ur weekly lmao u keyboard warriors are all the same hahahah. Nooobs!

      • Locklear66 says:

        You must stay up late and I bet the kids wish you would spend more time with them……just another couch potato

      • Locklear66 says:

        Oh I have a job a wife and a baby on the way…so yea it does cut into your play time if you spend any type of quality time with them

      • GodsGifttoHalo says:

        My fiances kids are 17 and 14 they don’t want to hang out with me they just want to play on the computer all day long. But I have to spend time cleaning up after them and feeding them so I wouldn’t say that’s quality time.

        I did the weekly in grifball no boosting with 3 friends and it took like 4-5 mins to win a match. So u do the math that’s 12 wins an hour and 36 possible wins in 3 hours.

        Matthew gave this advice many months ago to get on grifball with 3 friends. I listened and beeing doing this for challenges like this for a few months now. Maybe you just need some friends locklear

  5. karma frenzy says:

    Clearly u have a lot of time on ur hands all I’m gunnna say is 1v1 me n ooooh as for k\d boostin big woop I’ve tryed it many hhave and many will

    • GodsGifttoHalo says:

      Come on dog meat accept the invite
      This will give u a measure of skill and prove ur suspicions to not matter.

      • GodsGifttoHalo says:

        On another note dog meat have u ever done the nightfall run or done the target locater trick. Cause that’s cheating along the same lines of kd boosting. As long as your not effecting other gamers who really cares. Do a 1v1 or play mlg do determine how good you are. Any stats recorded by halo and bungie 343 period don’t mean anything.

      • Matthew Vose says:

        Dude, quit it. Now.

  6. Matthew Vose says:

    Woooooooah, easy there kids, did someone put some angry pills in the water today??

    Right, to sort this crap out… karma frenzy, this is your one warning, don’t come here being a braggart, calling people names and generally acting like a twat. It’s not accepted or wanted. If you want to do that the forums on Bungie or 343’s sites are the place to go. Keep doing it and I’ll add you to the banned list.

    Locklear & Rossco, chill out guys. Please. There’s no need to antagonise each other just because we all live different lives. It’d be boring if we were all the same!

    Now… have a cup of tea, I’ll make it. You can all find something to compliment each other with, such as:

    ‘well done GGTH for helping with your other half’s kids’
    ‘Locklear you’ve got a kid coming? Congrats man!’
    ‘hey karma you actually used a full stop correctly once in one of your posts, good on you’

    • GodsGifttoHalo says:

      Matthew u rock. I just like stirring up the nest every now and then to make this place more exciting.

  7. Matthew Vose says:

    Well, I gave him a chance. Clearly a douche with a habit for being a thicko idiot.

    • Matthew Vose says:

      Yet after saying you don’t like the site you’re still posting. What a waste of time your life must be. And you’re a thicko idiot for more than just your pathetic writing, everything you say screams out that you’re a small person who wants nothing more than to write crap on the internet.

      Small person, small life.

  8. famallama says:

    I dont see how MLG playlist means you’re good. All the maps are is power weapons everywhere. If it was turly major league gaming/pro gaming it would be exactly how the game was made. Its useless to be “good” at a game when you’re only good because they changed up the map to fit what is easy to use. Another thing, stopped paying attention to what frenzy was saying as soon as i read that he had typed “sed”, use words that exist.

  9. Matthew Vose says:

    Oh little boy, give your mum back her iPhone quietly so you don’t interrupt her stories, then go play with your sticks collection.

  10. André says:

    I think I’m done posting here too many bitches arguing. peace out!

  11. scottacus says:

    Perhaps we forgot that halo was designed as a game, for enjoyment and entertainment. So you have skill, good for you. I for one am just going to enjoy the game as it is, a game.

    • scottacus says:

      And if anyone wants to hang out and make some new friends, hit me up and we’ll have some fun killing each other. Gt is SC0TTACUS, the o is a zero… Peace all

  12. Jesus christ, it’s a warzone here. I personally have 3 wins towards the weekly as of today and it’s not because I’m bad. Stat check me if you wish:


    Everyone just chill out and have fun playing your Firefight Thursday. Maybe we’ll get some different challenges tomorrow.
