Halo Reach Daily Challenge 23/10/2010

Hello all, Welcome back. It's Saturday and I'm quite busy right now catching up on Tweets, Bungie Weekly Update, Rooster Teeth Shorts and Website upgrades. If you look down there in the bottom right (Possibly need to scroll down a bit), you'll see that there is the Challenge Thermometer. Keeping track of how close we are to the 117 Mill.

So Today has a couple of easy ones, and two slightly more problematic ones. Starting easy:

Where There's Smoke... - Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. 500 cR

If you want to jump in to a Score Attack or Firefight, I don't think it'll really make much difference, with the 3 rounds in Firefight and the 100+ Enemies in Score Attack you're almost sure to get it in one sitting.

Getting harder:

Neuroscience - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. 1200 cR

Team Snipers or SWAT. Either one is really good for this as they are the games that have the 1 shot headshot kill. Personally, I'll be doing SWAT as I can't wield a sniper to save my life.

Now, this is the Tricky one:

Harder than Some - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Thunderstorm, Famine, and Tilt on. 1000 cR

Thunderstorm increases the rank of all enemies, making them tougher and more intelligent.
Famine only gives you 50% ammo for dropped weapons.
Tilt increases resistance of enemy shield units to human weapons and body resistance to plasma fire.
So you NEED, Plasma for shield and UNSC for body but mix that in with the lack of ammo, you'll be swapping your plasma weapons after or even during every encounter. Only take weapons that can headshot, pistol or DRM. That's the best way of conserving ammo. It can also help to have someone tag along give one person plasma, the other bullets.

The last one, which is easier then you would think.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach. 4000 cR

ANY game mode. Custom games, Firefight. Doesn't matter. Now you can play through the day if you want just playing the usual matchmaking (By the time you've completed the others you'll already have 100) or, if the time comes that you're running out of time. This little file here will help.

It'll also get you the 1,000,000 Points in Firefight quickly (If you don't already have it).

So there you go, not impossible today and for 6700 cR, it's not too bad. Have fun guys.
