Yeah, my favorite is to just sticky someone and jet off. 20 jetpack kills is pretty easy to get.

Edit: Fuck this challenge. Seriously why is everyone obsessed with Rocket Race? If I could get a non-RR game I would be happy.
that and elite slayer where the jetpack loadout sucks and you only get 1 grenade

Another sure fire way to get loads of Elite kills is to use the guest trick method on Firefight Arcade. I did that and ended up by myself in a Rocket Fight match and I got the 30 kills in not time flat. Not to mention that I ended up getting a 3K slot bonus also.

looking for players to wear out the Firefight Arcade playlist who want to vote to play Rocket Fight or FRG Fight ONLY for huge amounts of cR. i will be in this playlist whenever i am on my 360 for as long as this playlist lasts. if your goal is the same as mine then send me a friend request with the attached message 'ARCADE' and i will add you.

Daily Challenges for 02/16/2011 - Total 4500cR

Light Fare - 1000cR
Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach.

A Simple Spree - 1000cR
Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking.

A Side of Huevos - 1500cR
Kill 75 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today.

Multiplier - 1000cR
Earn 2 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game.

Weekly Challenge

Ride The Wave - 15000cR
Complete 200 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking.

Comments

Wow this has to be the shittiest cR output in a long damn time. Sure the challenges are easy, but it just feels like the person who decides on these things has gotten seriously fucking lazy.

Suggested Roadmap

Light Fare, one round of Score Attack on your favorite map and match will knock this out in no time at all. You will also put a decent notch in this going for the multi kill challenge also.

A Simple Spree, You only need a single spree in any Firefight and you have this done. You can easliy get this with the previous challenge.

A Side of Huevos, load up Nightfall on Normal and once you get past the cutscene, just walk up to the Elite that is just standing there, snipe him and revert to last save. Rinse and repeat 74 more times and this one is in the bag.

Multiplier, load up Multiplayer and select Multi team or Team Slayer or BTB or whatever you prefer and all you need to do is get a triple kill or 2 double kills and this is taken care of.

Weekly Challenge

Ride the Wave, yet another weekly that could take a bit of time to complete. It will take about 40 Score Attack Firefight Matches to complete or 15 normal Firefight matches to complete.

If you have any problems with todays Dailys or the weekly, you might want to stop by the Achievement Trading thread. Remember that Full Party Boosting is now only allowed if all players are active, no idle guests! Bad news for those of us who used guests to get through some of these challenges as quickly as possibly due to lack of time, either need to find groups of 8+ or give up.

For the campaign one at the start of nightfall just save and quit when you're behind the elite at the beginning, load your save back up and everytime you headshot it just revert to last save. Shouldnt take longer than a minute or so

Sign in a second controller and play spiltscreen, theres seperate save files for single player and co-op.

Thats what ive been going for the campaign ones the last couple of days as my single player one is in the middle of boosting Standard Issue.

I too understand that being in the middle of a campaign isn't fun when wanting to do challenges. I have yet to finish the 6th mission on Legendary or the very last one. So....

I save a copy of my game saves to a 512MB formatted USB key. Then copy it over to my home server as a backup. Each file is labeled for the activity needed (Headshot, LASO, real game, etc). My real game save file stays on my console tho. To complete a challenge, I load the USB key with the backed-up file and just load that game off the USB drive when I start the game. Do the challenge and exit the game. Remove the USB drive and reload the game back to normal (from the hard drive). No worries about my main game being interrupted by challenges. Of course if I could get past the freakin' Elites on the Corvette then I wouldn't have to bother with all this.

If it's the bit when you first drop into the corvette after the part in the sabre, having the sword from the first part of the level makes that a lot easier!

Daily Challenges for 02/17/2011 - Total 5225cR

Blastin' and Relaxin' - 1350cR
Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach.

That Pink Mist - 1250cR
Kill 100 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking.

Flat Tire - 1125cR
Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking.

Killagruntjaro - 1500cR
Earn 25 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game.


Weekly Challenge

Ride The Wave - 15000cR
Complete 200 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking.

Comments

Firefight Thursday is back and unlike most weeks the challenges for today will help you on the long road towards the weekly. The challenges range from the insanely easy to the time consuming.

Suggested Roadmap

Blasin' and Relaxin', technically this isn't a Firefight specific challenge, but given the other three are this can be easily done in the time it's going to take you to get the others done. Should be two easy games of Score Attack.

That Pink Mist, it's going to take a while to get this one done as you need 100 super combine kills. FRG Attack would be a perfect place to go for this, but remember that the first two waves are going to see most of the enemies die before they explode. Once you get to the Brutes you should be able to rack them up pretty quickly.

Flat Tire, a couple of good maps with vehicles are Beachhead, Outpost, Overlook, and a few others you are gonna need 10 of them so it may take a few matches to get.

Killagruntjaro, one match of Gruntpocalypse or even Sniper Fight on Courtyard will help you net this with pretty much no issues. You would need 9 Overkills to get this done.

Weekly Challenge

Ride the Wave, yet another weekly that could take a bit of time to complete. It will take about 40 Score Attack Firefight Matches to complete or 15 normal Firefight matches to complete.

If you have any problems with todays Dailys or the weekly, you might want to stop by the Achievement Trading thread.

or, drop onto the strut that runs accross the top of the control room once you drop through the shield - at one end, there's a handy nook you hand hide in and snipe thigns with your DMR, pistol etc. There's also a shotgun up top you can grab before you drop down which works well too...

Maybe it's just me, but can anybody else not see or access the Daily challenges in Reach? I've got this message on the challenges section saying "Challenges are not currently available", and I have no idea why they wouldn't be up. =S

What's the best way to get vehicle kills now? Before the update, I'd get a lot in regular 4 player firefight (got 11 wraith kills in one game once), but vehicles never appear in FF Arcade...and the 2 banshee kills I got in 2X score attack didn't count last week..so does FF Limited have vehicles to kill?

My best bet would be to do regular Firefight and do the guest trick. Keep trying until you get Glacier and you should get a decent number of Wraiths on that level.
