14th April – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

It’s a weekend up north near sunny Manchester for me, I’ll be updating the challenges late tomorrow once I’m actually home.

Today’s challenges are:

  1. One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3500 cR
  2. I’m Rubber, You’re Glue – Earn 1 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR
  3. This is my Rifle… – Earn 40 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2600 cR
  4. Participation Counts – Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2400 cR

Commentary follows after the break…

One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 3500 cR

You get 120 Grunts in Gruntpocalypse, about 100 enemies in Score Attack, 120-135 in 2X SA, and something like 330 in a Firefight Matchmaking game (although split between up to 4 people). If you need to ‘top up’ your FF kills, jump into a game of Generator Defense or Crashsite and once you have your kills give up the defense.

I’m Rubber, You’re Glue – Earn 1 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

Any Elite Slayer where you’re given Plasma Grenades, although beware Armour Lock dudes as they’ll not give you the kill. Alternatively, Slayer Pro has a loadout that includes Plasma Grenades, or there are some scattered round a lot of maps in normal Multiplayer modes. Some Rumble Pit modes include Plasma Grenades in the loadouts too, Squad Slayer on Zealot is always a grenade frenzy, and DinoBlasters in Action Sack can be useful for grenades since no one expects Plasma grenades in that mode.

This is my Rifle… – Earn 40 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2600 cR

60 fewer kills than last time, 1100 credits more!? Precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper Rifle, Focus Beam and Needle Rifle. Team SWAT will do you well here. Unless you use melee or Pistol every kill will be a precision weapon kill, so play it a few times, try and get a good team who will cover your back (and you theirs), and just do this over 2 or 3 games.

Participation Counts – Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2400 cR

Complete the games. Don’t drop out. Get to the end of each. Just play through them. Doesn’t matter if you win or lose. Sorry, I can’t drag out this explanation any further. Is there a way of doing this quickly? Infection is a very fast game type so you’ll probably get it done in 10 minutes using that, or Grifball if you want to just go after the bomb score.

    The pistol is a precision weapon, I got the precision challenge on infection last time, and the shotty is hardly a precision weapon lol

  2. “Any Elite Slayer where you’re given Plasma Grenades, although beware Armour Lock dudes as they’ll not give you the kill”

    Hmm, doesn’t Super Slayer (aka TU Slayer) have Elite Slayer?

  3. Dan says:

    Pistol is not precision, most likely you are thinking of the neuroscience challenge, the one for headshots. It’s like what he said dmr, sniper, needle rifle, focus rifle. Just because it has a scope does not make it precision.
