SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY


SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY: Rob Ballesteros

Screenshot Of The Day today courtesy of blue dude Rob Ballesteros in a fast-paced action pic as he wraps up the tail end of a Triple-Kill. We’ve got Magnums and Multikills in the Challenges today, so we thought it’d make a good fit — nice work, Rob! Everyone, click to enlarge!

Meanwhile, if you haven’t done it already, yo: Send your screenshots to haloreachdaily@live.com, or just make a file recommendation to us on XBox (Gamertag: Ender Xer0, with a zero), and we’ll take care of the rest. Remember: we’re not looking for plain Forge art or random pix from the Internet; it should be a screenshot of YOU!

DAILY CHALLENGES


Summary

TYPES: Kills, Multikills, Special Weapon
SETTINGS: Firefight
AVERAGE DIFFICULTY: Easy / Grind
TOTAL TIME: 45-60 minutes
OVERALL VALUE: ★★★★☆
TOTAL CREDITS: 5125


ONE SPARTAN ARMY

Firefight

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 45 to 60 minutes (Concurrent with other Firefight Challenges)
Value: ★★★☆
Reward: 2000

Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking.

Take this one on last; you’ll already score a good number of these on your way to your other Challenges. For your leftovers, you can continue to stick it out alone in Score Attack — Gruntpocalypse is probably easiest, with 120 enemies per round who go down from a single trigger-pull — though Firefight Arcade offers you Overshields, three Rounds (plus a Bonus) of enemies and a virtual salad bar of power weapons; you’ll just have to share in your kills. (But hey, Firefight is supposed to be cooperative, yeah?)

BE THEIR HUCKLEBERRY

Firefight

Special Weapon

Kills

Type: Kills / Special Weapon
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10 minutes (Concurrent with other Firefight Challenges)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1000

Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol.

A Challenge tailor-made for Gruntpocalypse: Fire up Score Attack, select Drop Shield as your Armor Ability, then slide past the ammo crate to stock up on rounds. Switch to your Magnum and let the target practice begin. You’ll notch this Challenge just after the start of the third Wave.

As always, go for headshots and multikills, since the Firefight medals earn you additional cR, and you’ll tackle your Killagruntjaro! Challenge as well.

HEROIC SPELUNKING

Firefight

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 20-25 minutes (Concurrent with other Firefight Challenges)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1125

Kill 150 enemies on Glacier on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking.

Fire up a Gruntpocalypse in Score Attack and you’ll be able to work all four Firefight Challenges today at the same time; you’ll just need a second Score Attack match, but it remains vastly superior to Co-op Firefight, since it gives you map selection control — no getting stuck in a Rocketfight on Corvette with a bunch of guys who aren’t chasing the Challenge. You should cross the finish line just as the second Wave of your second Round starts.

Once you pocket your Huckleberry kills, remember that Glacier also features one of the best sniping perches in all of Halo, atop the West Tower of the Main Entrance (see the pic below). You’ll need to find the sweet spot outside the soft-kill-zone, but it’s pretty big and pretty easy. Just select Jetpack as your loadout, float up to your sniper nest and start making confetti.

KILLAGRUNTJARO!

Firefight

Single Match

Multikill

Type: Multikills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10 minutes (Concurrent with other Firefight Challenges)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1000

Earn 7 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game.

Despite its name, Killagruntjaro doesn’t actually require you to Jaro anything, though we will be going with Gruntpocalypse in Score Attack to wrap this in one Round rather than three. (Do it on Glacier with your pistol and you’ll be working all four Challenges at once, too.)

It shouldn’t be any problem to Magnum or DMR your way to 7 Multikills, since the Grunts go down with one shot, travel in packs, and maneuver with the agility of highway roadside accident. So, if you can’t manage 7 Multikills out of a single match, you’re just not trying.

Yes, you can also certainly clear this in almost any game of Firefight Arcade — we prefer FRGFight, though smashing the hell out of Covies with Gravity Hammers in a Fistfight gives us a boner too.
