Earning Credits Offline

So you are looking to start earning credits while you are offline? In Halo Reach's new credit system they allow you to earn credits by doing almost anything! This includes earning credits while you are offline. The cR you earn while offline count just as much and can be used to purchase the exact same things as earning them through online methods. I have also written a guide to farming Halo Reach credits online- Farming Halo Reach Credits

And if you do not already understand the credit system check out this other article-The Halo Reach Credit System

Okay, now that we should understand the credit system, we are looking to making more credits. This article focuses on the many separate ways of gaining credits offline.

Earning Halo Reach Credits Offline

So for some reason you have been stuck offline with no access to anyone else. This however is not too much of a bad thing! Some of the best ways of earning credits are done offline. It does help however to have a buddy with you or it could get extremely boring farming credits by yourself. Lets list some ways you can earn halo reach credits offline.

Campaign - Yep, you earn credits from playing the campaign. As mentioned above, this should try to be done with a friend so that you do not bore yourself to quitting. You can earn a considerable amount of credits if you can finish the campaign level in time and amount a good bunch of medals in the process. Your whole goal, however, is to finish the last level. You will get a HUGE bonus of cR when you finish the campaign.

Forge and Multiplayer - You can get some credits by toying around in forge or in multiplayer as well. A way to farm credits would be to set your controller up to start and end games so you can earn credits offline all of the time.

halo player is right. Bungie made halo reach to have fun. NOT CHEAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Halo player on May 29, 2012:

Everyone just don't cheat it's worthless cheating doesn't make it easy don't believe me? Try cheating on firefight

John on May 13, 2012:

sorry it was a borihg cheat

Streno from Fort Myers, FL on March 31, 2012:

For all of you that don't get Cr points (offline) The reason of this is because, Once you have gone on Xbox live(at all) On your account and then for some reason go offline. You will NOT receive anymore Cr points then 50-60 Roughly. Bungie made this credit system to stop Cr farmers. What you will have to do is either, Get more Xbox live or make A whole new account for (Offline) only. Hope this helped.

I just found out you gain 33,447cR by just putting in this secret code. rt. trigger lt. trigger back button rt.trigger and then put it in backwords

random on March 23, 2012:

a guy that is mildly confuesed,u have to be connected to live if you got the update.i don't think so cause i done the codes 2.

a guy,if u get a medal that's commendation which makes the cr pop up if connected to live.

random on March 21, 2012:

ive gotten banned by bungie online from earning cr so i can only earn offline but i only get like 90 or 75 cr nomater how long i play for. i got banned for nothing. but the best way offline without a xbox live acount is probably firefight and campaing. i got a offline profile too but i want to play online to offline profile is a brigader. my gamertag is:gamefreak no4.

a guy that is mildly confused on March 19, 2012:

this is errellivant but im confused..... ive unlocked jun's and carter's helm for my avatar and can't use them....why ,also i have the anniversary and i wanted to know if i go online and use my codes to get the chief avatar armor, grunt funeral skull, map pack will it reset my reach account?

a guy on March 18, 2012:

when ever i kill some one with a turet or vehical or target lokater or gernades it gives me no cr points

mavsa on March 16, 2012:

offline credits is time you don't get more from getting a heap of medals it is just how long you paly it works out to be about 4000 cr an hour

Lucario on March 04, 2012:

I had that rivalry with my brother. He was a captain grade 3, and he still is. I am now a general. You just gotta play with someone and own them. Either that, or firefight with a crapload of elite generals. Try to get both headshots and assassinations.

GruntApocolypse-Invincible-Rocket Launcher- Lots of cR

wailedostrich on December 29, 2011:

ive been playing forge world and making big maps

ripcord on December 09, 2011:

if you don't have online profile you need to go to firefight turn on legendary go into base traits go invesible and go on kill them all. KILL THEM ALL

Posted on November 30, 2011:

If you don't have xbox live (like me) and you know what you are doing, you or you and a friend can just spam play the last level (not lone wolf) for roughly 10,000 credits each time you finish on heroic. If you want to speed things up, have one of you hang back with a ranged weapon and provide cover fire from a distance, while the other guy runs in like an idiot and tries to do as much damage as possible before he kills himself, respawns, and tries to punch another grunt in the face. Easy, fun, and efficient cR farming.

Fahn on October 07, 2011:

Online: Play a crap-load of Rocketfight, Fiesta Fight and Gruntpacolypse.

Offline: Beat the campaign solo on legendary, forge, and custom firefight.

I have an online profile (I'm Brig Grade 1) but I recently had to cancel my LIVE because I need money for gas and school, so I created an offline account just to mess around on. I am completing the campaign solo on legendary (again) and turning the Tough Luck and Catch skulls on (extra grenades/score multiplier). On average, I'm earning over 3000 cR per mission not including the extra cR from medals and kills.

Also, you can earn 800 cR easy just from hanging out on forge for 10-15 minutes.

you on August 26, 2011:

Look, I know you shouldn't cheat but my sister is a sergeant grade 1 and I am still a private. i'm gettng desperate now!

j-lo on August 20, 2011:

listen to sean and DOG if you want to get easy cr. leave the game on while in a forge game for about 1.5 or 2 hours and depending on your rank you should get thousands of cr and the higher your rank the more you get but there is a maximum amount of cr that you can get and this is also based on your level. i am a colonel rank 3 and the max i can get is about 12,000

hippy gamer on July 09, 2011:

Halo is an ubundant estuary of valuable resources that can aid you in your pointless quests. Whatever you do, at least have fun doing it. Don't bore yourselves like this. Do it the old fashion way and kick your brother's ass in a game of slayer. Your welcome.

smartie lol on July 07, 2011:

yea but both of you sit home all day and night being losers

X192 on June 19, 2011:

I agree with halo master, i am only a major grade three and have played the campaign time and time again on heroic. I have also made some pretty cool maps on forge world.

Halo master on May 09, 2011:

those of you who do not cheat at halo, play on campaign. on easy, you get about 2000 (depending on your rank) on normal, about 4000, heroic 4500 legendary 5000. I think on campaign you get even more credits the longer you are on a mission

Halo master on May 09, 2011:

STOP TRYING TO CHEAT AT HALO! I have never done any of that stupid stuff like leaving it on forge for an hour or anything like that. All i have done is play campaign firefight and forge (p.s when i play forge or firefight i actually play it) and i am a Field Marshall

beagle man on April 06, 2011:

i have found that a easy way is firefight...make it so u can't die...300 damge all tha stuff shelids don't matter and reset the first wave to jackel snipers when u start find a nice spot to sit and get hit...go do something for an hour and 15 min come back and wellla...ull make out ur credit earnige..the more u rank up the more u earn in that same time a general level 4 and im earning about 17448 a round for a 75 min time frame....

i clarrk on March 30, 2011:

Hey beat tip of spear then load 2 part and have it on legendary almost all skulls on kill in the falcon and then revert last save over and over

sean on March 28, 2011:

hi i find it is a great idia if u play forge and lev it on but rap something around the bothe angalags to make it move this way the it will not come up with plz reconect controla

also to get even move make a pro no connectis to live and do same as abuv as u have not connectid to liv the cr systime will have no uploaded :cool:

DUUUUUUDE98 on March 01, 2011:

this is usually only good for online but for offline here's a good technique: Go in forge(make sure it is Forge World) make a platform fill it with killballs, explosives, ect. then put spawn points there save. GO TO CUSTOM GAMES load that map go to game settings put points all the way up for Deaths start the game and leave for an hour and a half come back atleast 14,000 CR at a time

legion on January 28, 2011:

what about when you have gone on xbox live and played reach, then go offline and not ever go online again (don't ask)and when you have played a lot offline (earning the small ammounts of credits) and it says "offline score limit reached" ????

chris on January 01, 2011:

why is it that i was major grade three off line and as soon as i join xbox live they take away 400k of my credits and purchaces (armory)

TheBaker on November 20, 2010:

In the new reach fire fight there is gruntpocolypse. Could you earn mass amounts of CR from that?

Fuzzy on November 08, 2010:

I played rocketfight unlimited time with ten lives and got 8555 credits in the afteraction report and about 2000 from kills during the game itself

Whoomp on November 07, 2010:

Save up your credits

me on November 02, 2010:

I fyou are using an offline acount open up a custom game and make it unlimited time. Then just leave it on.

For an online account don't use the target locater thing because you can get banned.

What I do is go into score attack and play Sniperattack or gruntpocalypse and aim for headshots. Also try to get commendations.

Shawn909 (my gamertag) on October 13, 2010:

Play score attack, and use the bubble shield thingy. Then you wait until you see grunts in packs... perferrabally 2's or 3's. shoot the helmets off of those one grunts that take 2 shots to kill. and hide into your bubble shield. get your shot. and you should get a lot of headshots+multi-kills. get an invincible, and you can get like 2000 credits a game.

poopypants on October 10, 2010:

you first have to get the laser painter thing and after that move to the back. moving to the back gets you a checkpoint to where you can return after shooting marking the spots. also make sure the first skull isn't on because it doesn't allow you to revert to the last save. also if you shoot the laser both times it might give you another checkpoint not letting you revert to the one where you first got the laser. hope this helped.

tfthghfghgh on October 10, 2010:

i tried to do the thing in the video and it didn't work WTF

ap2203 on October 05, 2010:

Another good way is to beat the campaign even on easy u get like 1000 to 2500 every level u finish i beat the campaign on legendary and got like 2500 to 3500 each mission it also depends if u get a lot of headshots killionairs and stuff like that hope u guys earn lots of credits seeyaaaaa

Traeicus117 on October 03, 2010:

An easy way of earning credits is go into firefight change the settings so you can't die, have a bottemless cup, and do 300% damage. Change all the wave setting so its are Elite Generals with all the skulls on. Change the map so its Corvette.

I was doing that for at least half an hour and got 1000+ credits

WeevilHalo on October 03, 2010:

That's great. i can't wait till my package gets here

Mr Reach on October 02, 2010:

You forgot one important fact. Once you connect to xbox live and are playing reach, or be on reach when connected, your credit system resets to some crap bungie made up, where you can only gain the majority of credits from matchmaking lobbies. This means, while the offline player, who has never connected to xbox live, gains the originally set credits system's credits, the player who has connected before, only is allowed to collect up to 50-60 credits per game. PLEASE, find us a way to collect credits while offline, even though we have connected to xbox live, and have the degraded credit system.

DOG on September 30, 2010:

I find that the best way of (farming) credits is to do nothing .... lol yeah ... nothing ... when ur not kicking ass while u play ... just sit in a forge game... over time u rack up a good amount of cr. like 3000 per hr i think....

spare on September 28, 2010:

it is because you were using an online account and she was using an offine account

Gizzy on September 28, 2010:

i was playing with my sis and we were on firefight ledgendary and i put on the setting so that we can't die and all that and during the game my sis did nothing and she gat 2467cr and i got only 50cr. WTF and i was the one killing that bastards

Gizzy on September 28, 2010:

that works great.
