SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY


SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY: rubberducky296

You know those cool shots from action movies where the hero walks in slo-mo toward the camera while a huge explosion goes batshit in the background? Yep, we’re suckers for those too. Screenshot Of The Day this morning courtesy of new friend-of-the-site rubberducky296, who gets props for his cinematic glory. Thanks, Ducky! 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!

Score 15,000 points in a Firefight Matchmaking game.

A couple of solid options here: if you’re skilled at headshots, fire up Gruntpocalypse in Score Attack and start making confetti; you should be able to crest 15K if you’re careful about combining your multikills, which net you extra Firefight points.

If that’s too much of a bother, simply load up a standard Co-op Three-Round Firefight, and vote for a match that features vehicles as a “map hazard” (as they’re called in the game settings) — Wraiths, Banshees and even Ghosts will register massive points, far more than the most powerful Covies. Beachhead easily represents your best bet: multiple Wraiths, Ghosts and a Rocket Hog tucked into the corner for when you’ve got a joyride-friendly partner.

The gametype itself won’t make much difference, however; most offer their own advantages, and three Rounds of Covies can deliver enough points no matter how you kill them.

  • Rocket and FRGFight represents your quickest shortcuts to points — especially while Jetpacking, raining plasma/fire from above onto enemy waves. Remember, though, your teammates will do the same thing, so don’t come late to the party. Also don’t get cocky and think your Launcher is a crotch rocket: Many Boss enemies, like Brute Chieftans, can shake off full missiles clips to the face before shoving a Hammer up your ass, so lead or follow with grenades to finish them off before your reload.
  • Sniperfight gives you more opportunity to pick and choose enemies, so concentrate on big-ticket leaders first, even if it means emptying an entire clip to reach your killshot; you’ll still score more points than if you had simply unloaded into a pack of Jackals or Grunts.

    The Target Locator: How to smell napalm in the morning.

  • If you’re lucky enough to snare the Target Locator from the Ordnance Drop, resist the urge to Killionaire a clutch of Covies and instead lock onto a Wraith: it’ll napalm the vehicle — scoring you major points — along with any stray Covies with the misfortune to be nearby. The Locator’s Red Ring Of Death will even follow a vehicle once it’s locked, so be patient and make a clean shot.
