Halo Reach Daily Challenge 11/11/2010

Just hit 11am and we've had our silence (the fact that the office is silent most of the day anyway) and it's time to continue. The daily challenges today are certainly a grind. They asked us to "complete" 50 Firefight games for a weekly. This daily is a much bigger grind. They also ask you to be invincible so have fun with that.

A small heads up for the staying alive challenges. Keep your distance. Do not engage in close combat unless you have no choice.

One Game, One Spawn - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying. 800 cR

You got 2 choices, survive 3 Firefight rounds with 3 extra people and a bonus round of who knows how many Hunters (I suggest running), or try staying alive through a 1 round solo Scoreattack. Both have their problems, Firefight with the extended time and harder enemies (although, that can mostly be solved with Rocketfight) or getting caught while on your own, reloading in Scoreattack. Even Gruntpocolypse can annoying at times, occasionally sneaking up on you with 1 shot Fuel Rods. Up to you how you want to tackle this.

Just Hold On... - Complete 20 Rounds in Firefight Matchmaking without dying. 3000 cR

20 rounds, once again you need to choose Firefight or Scoreattack, Score Attack games last about 8 mins long. Firefight lasts about 25, but you do 3 rounds. Plus the bonus round doesn't count so you can die without consequence.

Still though,
8 x 20 = 2 hours 40 mins (Scoreattack)
25 x 7 = 2 hours 55 mins (Firefight) (A little less is required because there's an extra round)

That's a rough estimate of the time it'll take. That's provided you don't die in any of the matches. I'm sorry Bungie but I really don't have that much time after work to do such challenges. On a weekend, yes, even as a weekly challenge would be better, but many people don't have the time after work/school to do this. Shame, I'd of liked that 3000 cR (I'm still going to give it a shot though)

A Friend in Need - Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking. 1000 cR

I'm sure during the 20 rounds you'll get this. One sure fire way to get an assist is to shoot the Phantom's turret with a sniper, when someone finishes it off you get 1 whole assist. Other tan that, just shoot and cause damage, they'll come eventually.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach. 2500 cR

20 rounds and not 250 kills, what are you doing? But yes, this is any game mode, with all these Firefight challenges though I'm sure you can get it somewhere along the line.

Have fun with your Firefight guys, just try and keep some distance, I'm going back to work. Bye.
