Halo Reach Daily Challenge 16-Oct-2010

Hello All. Some rather basic, simple challenges today and 1 tricky one, unless you have a friend willing to help, but lets start easy.

Heroic Demon – Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking on Heroic or harder – 2500 cR

Title tells it all, just go out and kill.

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 50 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 500 cR

You'll get this one with Heroic Demon. A very basic version of "Shootin' and Lootin'"

Supporting Role – Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 400 cR

A little harder and easier to do in Firefight, still best to partner up with someone like with all challenges like this.

Office of Not Dying – Complete ONI on Legendary without dying – 4000 cR

Now this is the tricky one to do, unless you have a couple of spare Spartans handy. Co-op this and just stay back, let your friends do all the work, when the area is clear, move on up. Can take some time to do but it is worth a very large amount of cR.

Today you can get a nice 7400 cR, larger than normal but hey, it's the weekend. Still rather basic though, not much to really say other than what I've already writen. So have fun and, don't die too much. Happy Trails.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 15-Oct-2010

Hello again, I'm back and more or less on time. Today Bungie updated 5 mins late. How inconsiderate :P. Anyway, today we have a few low reward challenges and 1 mega challenge. Starting off:

A Great Friend -Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking. 900 cR
No "I" in Team - Earn 6 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. 600 cR

You need 15 assists, best chance is to partner up with someone (Possibly Invasion) and wield the Plasma Pistol while they take a DMR or Needle Rifle. Another way would be to wield a Sniper and go for the body shot leaving them with no shield and enough damage for an assist.

Up Close and Personal - Kill 5 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. 250 cR

A bit of a low amount but every little helps. Enter an Invasion game and go for the melee with the Plasma Pistol or Shotgun and Sword them to death.

Finally for today, the big one,

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

A whole 4000 cR for this. A very nice amount, do all the other challenges first them just enter some Gruntpocalypse. Shouldn't take too long.

Grand total: 5750 cR. Make sure that you at least get that 4000 cR for some nice upgrades. Have fun and (By request of a friend) Hurp-a-Derp.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 14-Oct-2010

Hello again people of the internet, I am back once again, later than usual because as well as lots of work, I'm also ill "HOORAY!!". I'm better now, think it might have been something to do with last nights dinner. (P.S. Sidenote, on my laptop and not all the keys work on the first press so you may see a few missing "h") Anyways, back to Halo Reach. Today has a large amount of Firefight matchmaking challenges, with a total of 5100 cR.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking. 2000 cR
Blast Radius - Kill 30 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades. 600 cR

I'd say get into some Score Attack with Gruntpocolypse. Nothing dies quite so easily as a Grunt from a DMR headshot. They also die easily from grenades too making these two very easy to get, more so on corvette as they need to exit from those side rooms. 2 rounds should be enough to get these challenges which should also be enough to get...

One Spartan Army - Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. 2500 cR

This one is a common challenge, good job it's also easy. If you don't have enough you're probably just missing a few so pop into Firefight, that'll give you an extra 500 cR and it'll be over quickly due to the other people helping you out.

Now, also in the challenges today is...

More than a Handful - Kill 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. 750 cR

That mystical number 7, Just go into a gametype you like and start getting those kills. Probably a little more grinding than the rest and for less cR but it brings the overall total today to, 5850 cR. A very nice amount.

So have fun, stay safe and keep that KDR Ratio above 1. I'll be back here, at an earlier time tomorrow as this work will be finished and I'll be healthy again. Sayonara.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 13-Oct-2010

Hello again, little bit late today because I've been busy with work, little info on yesterdays challenges. Return of the Mack, this one, was odd. If you died, any progress made on that challenge on that current level from that point wouldn't be allowed. You needed to exit and restart. Odd and a little more time consuming but, hey, still easy.

Moving onto today:

Fire When Ready - Kill 30 Enemies in Multiplayer Matchmaking. 300 cR

Very simple, just a case of getting the kills. Find a gametype that works for you.

Headshot Honcho -Kill 11 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. 1100 cR

1 Gametype focuses on headshots more than others and is easy to get, SWAT. 1 shot and they're down.

Heroic Demon - Kill 20 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking on Heroic or harder. 2000 cR

Rocketfight, need I say more.

Just a shower - Complete any Campaign mission on Normal or harder with Thunderstorm on. 2000 cR

Thunderstorm ranks up the enemies you will meet in the mission. As it can be completed on normal though, it shouldn't be too hard. Level choice, pick what you feel best on.

There we go, a fairly easy 5400 cR for today. Have fun and Rank up.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 12-Oct-2010

Hello all, welcome back. Today's challenges offer a very nice 6400 cR for all of them and today I've also got them in listed in order of best tackled. (more or less)

Return of the Mack – Kill 50 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder. 3000 cR

So this one is very simple, go into campaign (any level although one filled with Elites would help, possibly Long night of solace as that final bit has quite a few or you could try holding out on Lone wolf) and kill them.

Above the Law – Complete a Round in Firefight Matchmaking without dying. 500 cR

Get yourself in a firefight game, Snipers or Rockets I would suggest, then stay back. You've got 3 other team members and you can let them take the brunt of the attack. Help out when needed though otherwise you could find yourself cornered by a bunch of enemies. Take an armour ability built for defense &/or escape.

Home Field Advantage – Win 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. 1400 cR

Not much I can say here but go out there and win. Find some skilled friends.

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach. 1500 cR

After the kills on campaign, firefight and those minimum of 7 mutiplayer games, you should have reached/nearly reached the 150 kills.

Have fun getting those challenges and if you have any questions, anyone can comment. Happy Fragging.
