17th April – Halo Reach Daily Challenges & Commentary

Update – And it’s confirmed, Halo 4 comes out November 6th 2012.

Interesting how the consensus is for the ranking to maybe be improved in Halo 4, but not to lose the progress from Reach. In my gut I feel that there will be nothing carried over, so whatever progress you had in previous Halo games won’t count for anything, but my heart wants there to be something, even if it’s akin to the ME character transfer where depending on how you previously performed it gives you some boost of credits and rank but not all the way through the new game’s progression system.

There has been promised an announcement today about Halo 4, rumours circulate that it’s the release date of November 6th, which would tie into previous Halo release periods and sets up nicely for dominating the holiday season 2012.

Today’s challenges are below, and are not the best for completing the latest weekly challenge:

  1. Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 4000 cR
  2. Just Holdout – Kill 1000 enemies on Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR
  3. Huck It, Luck It – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Cloud, Tough Luck, and Catch on – 2000 cR
  4. Who’s the Big Winner? – Win 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 3000 cR
