Light Fare – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. – 1000cR
- Really, just a free a thousand credits for today, since you will make at least a hundred kills doing the “Flat Tire” challenge and another hundred doing the “Short, Controlled Bursts” challenge. Either way you look at it, this challenge will be easily completed. Do not sweat it and get to the other challenges.
Golden Opportunity – Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder. – 2500cR
- This is a very easy challenge and many player probably kill a Gold Ranger-class Elite (a.k.a. a BoB) every time they play a campaign mission in Reach. The easiest one to kill is on the level Winter Contingency on Heroic. After you get in a vehicle, veer to the right and turn into the first settlement you see. Most likely, there will be a BoB there. You can run him down with your vehicle on this difficulty. If he is not at this location, drive through the settlement and continue around. He will most likely come at you while you are going to the stranded Marines. Be warned that this Elite does not always show himself. You might also have some luck loading up Rally Point Bravo for ONI: Swordbase where the BoB is either in the initial Courtyard or near the multiplayer Shotgun spawn location.
Flat Tire – Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. – 1000cR
- This will, as usual, be the most irritating challenge of the day. I have not even gotten into a game yet and it is already irritating me but, anyway, have patience with this challenge. You want to aim for Sniper Attack on Holdout. Rocket Attack is an acceptable alternative and FRG is the last ditch hope expect to hit about three Banshee kills a game if you wait till the clock expires. But, it is not completely uncommon to hit four or five Banshee kills. Good luck with this one. I hope it takes you just a game or two.
Short, Controlled Bursts – Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today. – 1000cR
- Short of finishing off the Weekly Challenge and the “Golden Opportunity” challenge, this challenge presents you with another good reason to play through Winter Contingency today. Automatic weapons include the AR, Needle, Plasma Rifle and Plasma Repeater. All of these weapons can be found during the mission and you will likely have to mix and match weapons to reach the maximum number of kills.
Last day to complete the Weekly Challenge. See how to, here.
