ENDERTORIAL


Just wanted to post a quick note that we’re trying a new format here at HRD; the original, single-long-post-every-morning is the same format we’ve run since the site’s very first day, and I’m told that it becomes unwieldy on portable devices — so it’s time to modernize with the times.

HRD should still read the same for everyone who simply visits the Front Page, and the single-post will still be there for people who like it that way; you’ll just have to give it an extra click is all.

In addition, readers not on portable devices should see improvements too: not the least of which is that, by posting individual Challenge entries, the site becomes hugely more searchable, both from on board the Pillar Of Awesome as well as from the wilds of outer space known as the Internets.

Anyway, it’s all a bit of extra work from our end, but we thought it’d be a useful improvement. So, give us some feedback and let us know what you think. Do you like it? Hate it? Don’t care, just shut up Ender and help me get that Weekly Challenge? Send us some emails and let us know!

Pax,
Ender Xer0

SCREENSHOTS OF THE DAY


SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY: Spartan C126


Screenshot Of The Day today courtesy of Spartan C126, with an inspirational shot that reminds us why the game is called Reach. Thanks, 126! 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 Forge art or random pix from the Internet; it should be a screenshot of YOU!

COVENANT-CIDE

Firefight

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 10-20 minutes
Value: ★★★★
Reward: 1100

Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking.

Not much to say: Load up any power-weapon Firefight Arcade game and you should be able to blast your way to this Challenge in a single match. Even if you fall short of the mark, though, it’s a simple matter to just fire up another, or wrap things up in Score Attack.

(We’d recommend against Score Attack for starters, though; Gruntpocalypse seems like an obvious choice here, but though it offers exactly the number of Grunts you need — 120 — they have a tendancy to blow up themselves, or each other, or both, meaning you’d fall short and need a second Round anyway.)
