Kill 1000 enemies on Glacier in Firefight Matchmaking.

Yow! A thousand enemies?? That sounds almost like a Weekly. OK, whatever. It gives us the chance to say “spelunking” repeatedly.

Quite obviously, you’ll spend most of your time today either on Glacier or cursing Bungie for not prioritizing it in the voting cycle. If you’re lucky enough to get a Glacier Sniperfight in Arcade, you’ll be able to gleefully work all four Firefight Challenges today at once. If you’re having trouble getting Glacier to slot, or your retarded Rocketfight randoms in Matchmaking aren’t chasing the Challenges, you can head into Score Attack for more map selection control, though you’ll need as many as eight or nine matches to register your 1K.

On the plus side, Glacier does feature 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 sending the Covies on their Great Journey.

    I was so pissed when I found out it was 1,000 kills. Thanks for the tip on the sniping spot! 🙂

    It’s not JUST that Glacier isn’t prioritized; it’s also that about a fourth of the time the map isn’t even offered!

    Big ole’ wast of time right here…
