SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY


SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY: ACE x GRAN

Ninja Screenshot Of The Day today courtesy of ACE x GRAN, who shows that you don’t need color to look cool when you’ve already got a sword and sniper. Thanks, Ace! 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, Killstyle, Special Weapon
SETTINGS: Firefight
AVERAGE DIFFICULTY: Easy / Grind
TOTAL TIME: 30-40 minutes
OVERALL VALUE: ★★★★★
TOTAL CREDITS: 5250

ONE SPARTAN ARMY

Firefight

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 25 to 30 minutes (Concurrent with other Firefight Challenges)
Value: ★★★★
Reward: 1875

Kill 250 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?)

BLAST RADIUS

Firefight

Special Weapon

Kills

Type: Kills / Special Weapon
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10 minutes (Concurrent with One Spartan Army Challenge)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1000

Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades.

Though it might seem counterintuitive, Nadefight is actually not your best bet here: it gives you an eight-grenade bandoleer to start, but the updated Firefight Arcade settings prevent you from farming replacements from the field, meaning you’d need to suicide or kamikaze your way to a respawn to restock your inventory.

Instead, simply clear this out in Score Attack’s Gruntpocalypse, where the waddlin’ tykes tend to travel in packs and die from grenade explosions like pond fish. You’ll wrap this up in just a single Round, and be able to work toward your One Spartan Army Challenge at the same time. Then, when you’re done blowing things up, pull out your pistol for some Huckleberry and Hyper Lethal Vector headshot action as well and you’ll make progress toward all four Challenges in the same match.

HYPER LETHAL VECTOR

Firefight

Headshot

Type: Killstyle
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 15-20 minutes (Concurrent with other Firefight Challenges)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1125

Kill 150 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking.

Head into Gruntpocalypse in Score Attack and you’ll register this Challenge during the second Wave of your second Match; but if you use your Magnum, you’ll actually notch the Be Their Huckleberry Challenge (see below) before the end of the first. And, once you’re done with headshots, you can start spamming grenades and finish off Blast Radius before the second Round ends too. Yow!

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 100 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 boom-chucka-boom music of the final Wave begins.

As mentioned above, focus on headshots to work your Hyper Lethal Vector Challenge at the same time, look for multikills, since the Firefight medals earn you additional cR.

  1. hey ender 🙂

    these shouldn’t take people long. maybe 30 minutes? 2 or 3 games of gruntpoc? and if you’re just a few kills shy of the 250 but have everything else, instead of doing a full game, jump into a crashsite game and defend the generator for the few kills you need then simply give up. works if you’re getting tired of FF. 🙂
