Halo Reach Daily Challenge 11/12/2010

Computer Problems, Yeay. This thing really needs upgrades. Anyway, Onwards:

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2000 cR

Kills stuff however you feel like, provided it's in Reach.

Covenant-cide – Kill 90 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

1 game of Scoreattack, you will be done.

Mostly at Night – Complete Nightfall on Legendary without dying – 5000 cR

Always a troublesome one. If you can send a bunch of friends ahead of you to clear the way, go for it. If not, I'll get a walkthrough for you later. When I've completed it... If I complete it.

That Pink Mist – Kill 70 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Rather self explanatory again.

Done & Done, well almost, give me a few hours to get a walkthrough up. Till then, bye.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 10/12/2010

Morning all. Time for some more challenges. Today is a nice big pay off for, not really that much work. Let's have a look.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2500 cR

Kill one, Kill all, in this exciting game.

Helping Hand - Earn 10 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1600 cR

Plasma Pistols, Sniper Body Shots, Armour Locks and the Melee Punch. All your friend today.

Inclement Weather - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Thunderstorm Skull on. - 1500 cR

The skull ranks enemies up, so plan of action, leg it. Winter Contingency is once again, the best level.

A Solid Outing - Earn at least 15 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 3000 cR

Go Multi-Team, in slayer matches it's first team to 50, so that's 25ish a piece. Very likely to get this one. Aim for the objective games too. Longer lasting so more bang for your Buck.

That be all for now. Back to the final stretch of work. Bye.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 09/12/2010

Busy again, mainly becasue I want to do this next assignment quickly. I'm almost finished, then it's smooth sailing. So let's talk Reach. More specificly, Firefight Thursday.

One Spartan Army – Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Very simple, play a few games of Scoreattack, don't aim for this one as you'll get the kills going for the other ones.

Supporting Role – Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1100 cR

You know how to assist, so go do it.

Points, Points – Score 20,000 points in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 2500 cR

Sniperattack on Beach Head will give you the points needed. Getting the 100 Kill Spree, The Vehicles play a vital roll in the Splatter Sprees and the Sniper Sprees will come naturally. You'll get the challenge at the end of the 4th wave/beginning of the 5th.

That Pink Mist – Kill 20 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking – 1650 cR

Title tells it all. Grab Pink and fire away. Brutes fall very easily to needler/Needle Rifle rounds. Just remember, this needs to be done on Regular Firefight, Mythic Attack or Gruntpocolypse as Sniperattack doesn't allow you to pick up weapons.

There we have it, another Firefight Thursday. Personally Firefight Friday sounds better but whatever. Have fun out there. HHF

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 08/12/2010

I'm so Busy, Oh So Busy *End Song* So once again I'll be keeping it short. Can't wait till these assignments are over.

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

2 Scoreattacks will leave you very close to completing this. If you can't be bothered with another round, try out Firefight Doubles. That'll push you over the edge... If they count towards it. Something for me to test.

Double Double – Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking. 1200 cR

Grab a partner and enter some Multi-Team. Or Play Some solo Rumble Pit. Find Two people in combat and take all the spoils. Grab power weapons, anything you need to function.

Oops! All Kills – Earn 25 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking. 1200 cR

What you did for Double Double, keep doing it. Remember, a Double counts as 1, a Triple kill is an extra 1 on top and so forth.

Gunslinger – Kill 75 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking . 1250 cR

Kill 75 people in Multiplayer. Hardly Challenging at all.

That be all today. All challenges be easy to get. Multikills may take a bit but they're certainly not impossible. Have fun in the madness.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 07/12/2010

More busy work & I have no break, so let's do this quick:

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. 1500 cR

Do you really need my help for this? Multi-team is where the big kills are. Beyond that, Up to you.

A Great Friend - Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking. 1400 cR

Plasma Pistols, Melees, Armour Lock EMPs & Sniper Body shots. The quick way to get an assist.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 50 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today. 1000 cR

I'm not 100% sure what an infantry class is but in each group of enemies there will be a leader and the rest will be infantry. Go for the grunts & Jackals. It's only 50 kills so shouldn't take long.

Heroic Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking on Heroic or harder. 1500 cR

You can either kill the Elites in Firefight, snatching them from your allies, possibly try out the Firefight Doubles, or play Scoreattack and slowly work your way up with that.

Done and Done, remember, that weekly challenge is very easy, a link to it is in the side bar. Have fun.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 06/12/2010 Not in the Face

Not in the Face - Complete any Campaign mission on Heroic in 30 minutes with Black Eye on. 4000 cR

Haha, welcome all. Guess this is what happens when they re-do a challenge. On the side bar to your right you'll see a little link to the current weekly. It's a bit more updated. (23rd May)

Update down a couple of paragraphs.

I hope you brought your punching hands and running boot because that's what you'll be needing. Black eye means that your shield won't recharge unless you're punching an enemy. It is however on Heroic so getting up close is something you really don't want to do. To those who gamed while health packs were the only way to get health this will be nothing new. The time limit however may cause some problems. 30 minutes is not a long time. The only mission I can think of this being possible on is Winter Contingency.

It's not that much of a problem, we've got the whole week to figure this one out. I'll be experimenting and giving you a walk-through when I complete it myself. Go out there and do what you can. Remember, you can die, so just play through to the end. You may find routes better suited for this challenge.

Bye all, have a grand day.

UPDATE: Played Co-op Winter Contingency doing both the Monday Daily (Co-Op Iron) & Black Eye Skull. Just me and 1 other Friend. We ran 90% of the mission. We only had 1 revert and we completed it in under 15 mins. So there you have it, easy stuff.

Walk through:

Start off and get to the window, don't fire, just charge right on through and head either left along the bridge all the way up through the hut and over the rocks, or right, over the house and across the river.

When you get to the vehicles, head right to trigger the actions then make camp at the marines area. Wipe out the Elites from range with the Pistol/DMR. Move in and give a Grunt a tap if you need some shields. Shoot him once to stun him.

Jump into the Falcon and wipe out the first group with grenades. After, let Carter & Jorge do the heavy lifting, help out from cover when needed.

When inside, grab a DMR & Plasma Pistol. Grunts & Jackals will go down no problem with a few helpful grenades. Take out the Grunts in the final room as they exit the little corner box. Plasma Pistol the Elites and finish with a Headshot. Bam, you're done.

If you dislike to read or are still confused, this video in my file share is the take me and my friend did. You can watch me be an idiot and forget there's one more wave at the river.

There we go, a seemingly complex challenge, made easy.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 06/12/2010

Sorry I'm late, I had a good weekend and was up for 40 hours in a row. That is not important though. What is, are Challenges. We've got a bit of everything today so let's do this.

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 90 enemies in any game mode in Reach. 1000 cR


A Friend in Need - Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking. 1000 cR

Don't kill them, just wound them. As always, best done when you're with a partner, call out targets to each other.

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal. 1500 cR

Start at Rally Point Alpha. Take the Jet-pack and use Grenades, Rockets and Melee to get to the part where you have to climb up to get to the Landing pad. From there, skip all the climbing and just jet-pack up. Kill the grunts as they come out and steal the Fuel Rod. Now have fun.

Iron With Friends - Complete a Campaign mission co-op on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on. 1750 cR

All you need to do is be cautious. Dying with Iron makes you revert to the last checkpoint. With two of you though, work together to combine fire and cause distractions where needed. Play it smart.

That's all for now. The Weekly will come soon but I'm going to need to put a bit of research into that. Till then, have fun.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 05/12/2010

Good morning, or afternoon. Who knows any more, I've been up for 24 hours and I've still got 13 more to power through. Today the pattern continues and it's time to power through these multiplayer challenges, not such an easy run today. More grinding.

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

Same as yesterday, so do it again today.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 77 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking. 1900 cR

The Assault Rifle & Needler are your friends, I know the AR normally leaves you in the best spot for melee to finish, so try from a distance and feather the trigger. Now, the Needler on the other hands, go nuts. Tracking and exploding = Med distance fun.

... Got a Triple Double - Earn 3 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking. 1500 cR

Time to enter the Chaotic fray of Multi-Team & Rumble Pit. Find those 2 people fighting and just finish them off. Or take your time and locate some enemies together. A grenade to soften up and hose them down.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. 2000 cR

If you didn't see something like this coming, I don't know what to say. So win 10 games. Not hard but luck can be against you, or your own skill. Just play till you win, then do it some more.

That's it, I'm off to enjoy the rest of today, have fun with the challenges and get that weekly.
