Halo: ReachEdit

  • On 12/3/10, made a programing error which resulted in a challenge displaying on as "Single wield. Earn {required_count} kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking." In-game, the challenge was displayed in its intended form.
  • On 1/19/11, Bungie revealed the location of a BOB. in the Challenge "Golden Tree City." The description read, "Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in a Banshee, fast and low, while on New Alexandria, on Legendary."
  • On 8/15/11, the same weekly challenge (Ride The Wave: Complete 150 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking) was featured for a 2nd consecutive week.
  • cR rewards have been inflated since 343 Industries took over the Halo franchise.
