Damn, I'm only a 5th of the way there, I had enough trouble doing yesterdays Dailys... such lag/poor connection/game restarting/quiters really dragged out the evening and I didn't have time/energy to do anymore.

Thankfully with today's dailys I'll be able to devote some time to the weekly, would help if I had Halo Reach buddies I guess.

You need to get 20000 points by yourself.
Done one sniperattack in firefight matchmaking and got to 19900 points more or lese and the game ended. I was angry cause we got one sniper and he was everywhere while we were just defending one place he thought I shall do both places and earn me all the kills. He even betrayed me
But the point is get 20000 points by yourself and luckily you've gotten yourself in to a party where everyone wants to survive a round and they'll be cowering in the safe room so you can get the kills all by yourself and scoring some nice points

Yepp, just got the weekly. Now I can maybe focus on other games, haha.

I didn't really play with my Reach buddies, I just solo'd it on Multi-team. About 20-30 kills a game is the way to go.

Don't play Firefight.

Play Score Attack and vote for Sniper Attack.

I didn't think I'd say this, but thank you quitters. I got a rocketfight all for myself and got something like 27000 points before the timer zeroed.

Good tip for firefight, you can always sign in a guest and set all of the filters on, pretty much 90% of the time the game will just start with you and your guest. Get all the kills you want

(that is if split screen doesnt bother you)

I think it would be interesting to hear from Bungie how they select challenges. Like, are all the daily challenges for a week selected weeks in advance? Or do they decide the week or a few days beforehand?

Are the challenges randomly mixed between campaign, mm, and ff? Or do they pick challenges based on people's playing patterns (from their game stats)?

For example, all the challenges today are ff challenges. Is that cuz they noticed people don't play a lot of ff on Thursdays so they want to encourage us to do so, and therefore reduce search times for ff games? Or is it cuz people play a lot of ff on Thursdays so they figure they'll give us some challenges and reward us with CRs? Or was it all random?

Haven't read anything in their weekly updates about their logic behind choosing challenges, so that's why I'm curious.... (not really expecting answers from you guys, but feel free to comment if you wish...)

As far as I know, you have to win the round by killing everything, you can't just hide.

Though if you plan to do this in FFMM; then be prepared for people to lead enemys to you and more than likely you'll also get bad rep for your troubles...

Whoops, you're right. I forgot they added two more rounds to Firefight. I'll delete my post and hope I didn't confuse anyone.

Still, though, Score Attack is the way to go for people who are struggling with any Firefight challenges.

I wanted to play rocketfight, but somehow every other guy wants normal firefight. And than they fucking suck at it, annoys the shit out of me. 1 round firefight > > > 3 rounds.

I do believe they are totally random. We've had a few very similar challenges - and one the same, for beating ONI on Legendary without dying - twice within one week I believe. I'd like to think some thought goes into these challenges every day/week, but I'm not too sure when I continue to see the same copypaste crap every couple of days.

Why is everyone doing firefight with more people? Just do score attack and you are alone and you'll be able to make it.

I agree. I usually have really bad lag in all my multiplayer FF games (not to mention guys betraying me), I always try to do these challenges in Score Attack by myself unless I need help.

I almost always avoid regular matchmaking games. I really suck at those and again, the lag doesn't help (but it's usually not as bad a campaign or firefight matchmaking)

for me, easiest way to do the do not die in firefight challenge: score attack Gruntpocalypse on Corvette. I choose drop shield, but any equipment is fine.

just as you walk out of the doors, on the side is a ramp. climb about mid way and just camp (or move around on the ramp). the trick is to clear the grunts out before they get within shooting range. use the DMR to do just that.

just be wary of grunts with fuel rods and you'll be all right. oh watch out for nades left over on the ground. run back to the ammo crates when low on ammo or when you hear 'reinforcements'.

alternatively do the same on the Sword base map. and once u clear the door, go left all the way to the end till you are near the ammo box. just fight around that area.

To make it a little easier, clear out the enemies near the bottom area on that left side and then go down and drive the forklift part way up the ramp and park it sideways (or as close to it as possible). If you can do that then you only need to guard one direction and still be beside the ammo cabinet all the time. I just did that for fun and found that it worked out fairly well... it even blocked fuel rod grunts from sneaking behind me.

gruntpocalypse is extremely easy to get the 'not die' challenge today. i did it my first try.
i usually just camp on the first ledge on the left as enemies will always come into view and its close to health packs and ammo if needed.

20000 on rocketfight was easy as well.

about 45 minutes for 7000cR today

Anybody with 4 controllers want to finish off the weekly challenge? I have 700/1000 but I'm extremely busy this weekend and I'm afraid I won't have time to finish this. We won't get banned as bungie has confirmed it as long as its a full party.

Well, to be accurate on that, they actually said:

Hi 'rex. Is "Full Party Boosting" the bit where I showed you that Youtube video?
Full Party Boosting is the practice of taking a complete party (of accounts and guests) into a playlist and mindlessly shooting each other in the head for Commendations.
It isn't significantly more time efficient than simply playing (at least, once your Commendations stop ranking up), and it does not ruin the game for any bystanders (as opposed to Partial Party Boosting, which we will hand out Matchmaking bans for.)
Essentially, we've deemed it to be on par with Target Locator boosting. Distasteful, but ultimately not harmful. (Except perhaps to the sanity of people who engage in it.)
Hence why I've just tried to do it normally this week, but obviously I'm not going to get it done in time without some boosting. I'm glad they don't take too hard a line on it, for reasons of play time, sometimes you just have to boost. Trying to do it normally will only get you so far, unless you're luck that you get all the game types and matches you want for your best performance, and people don't quit or have poor connections.

Anyway, this should be directed in the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=152101 thread, but I have four controllers and will be looking to boost this tonight (BST, which don't forget ends Sunday night, back to ol' GMT for us Brits) and during the weekend.

PS. Speaking of Time, anyone else noticed this board is like 10 minutes fast?

Today's Dailys - Total 6250cR

More than a Handful - 1250cR
Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking.

Covenant-cide - 500cR
Kill 60 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking.

A Side of Huevos - 1500cR
Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal.

The House of Blue Leaves - 3000cR
Kill 111 enemies in a single Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic.


Ok, let's see one game of GP should do do the two FF challenges, finally a daily to help the weekly, and how many people are just going to shoot the first Elite and reload for 40 times and how many are just going to play the level, even for a bit?

PS. Hmm... no actually, seriously, what's the point of Covenant-Cide when there's The House of Blue Leaves? Oh well, easy credits, but looks a bit random.
