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!

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.

Halo Reach Daily is dedicated to my Dad, who taught me what it means to take on a Challenge.
