Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game.

Wow, nine Sprees. Seems like a lot, yeah?

The fact is, Bungie has created so many Sprees for Reach that you can hardly take a piss without, well, pissing on one. (And do it five times, you’ll probably get a Pissing Spree.) Weapons like the Sniper or Fistfight’s Sword and Hammer will trigger two Sprees at once, so you’ll Spree with the weapon in addition to your naked killstreak — twice as fast, in fact — to earn two notches toward the Daily Challenge.

Likewise, the extended-streak awards — Killing Frenzy, Slice ‘N’ Dice and so on — score additional notches, so you’ll register a new Spree every five kills up through 20, with double-awards at the 10 mark; that means you’ll have more than half this Challenge in pocket from less than two dozen enemies.

The Target Locator: How to smell napalm in the morning.

Don’t like the cool special weapons of an Arcade Firefight? Okay, you’re weird, but whatever. Just head into a standard Firefight and recover the Ordnance Weapons right away; a Spree will literally fall from the sky if you snare the Target Locator, but the rest of the Ordnance arsenal — Rockets, Sniper, Laser — will easily Spree for you as well. (Your only challenge will be the Laser: just four shots in Reach — WTF is that about, Bungie? — so simply fire into a Covie pack or burn through a Wraith for a Double-Kill to notch the added point for a Laser Spree.)

And, just one map-specific note: If you vote your way onto Beachhead or Unearthed, it’s time for some real fun. Hop into the Rocket Hog and joyride a friend around as he cuts loose with his best imitation of a KISS concert. You’ll rack up Wheelman Sprees — yes, there are those too — as well as paint the grill with a Splatter Spree or two along the way.
