Halo Reach Daily Challenge 1/1/2011

First day of 2011. Hope you all had a good night. Certainly enjoyed myself. Anyway, First set of Challenges for the year:

Short, Controlled Bursts – Kill 50 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today – 1000 cR

The Assault Rifle, Needler and Plasma Repeater are what you want to pick up here. You start with the AR on most missions so you're good here. Rally Point Bravo on winter Contingency I'd say.

There Are Many Like… – Kill 100 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today – 1000 cR

ONI sword base is the choice level here. You spawn with a DMR and there is a sniper on the left walkway. Once the ammo for both are used, restart the mission.

Above the Law – Complete a round in Firefight Matchmaking without dying – 2500 cR

You can either join a Firefight game and hide away at the back, or you can play scoreattack/sniperatack and use your own technique. I've found that Hologram works brilliantly on Snniperfight.

Un, Deux, Trois – Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300 cR

3 games to win, just keep playing multiplayer till you win and do it again. Try and do Slayer games or Objective games where a win is more common than a tie (Invasion can be a bugger as can attack & defend Assault/CTF)

That's what we have for the first day, I'll see you all tomorrow. Normal time updates will return Monday at the latest.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 31/12/2010

Very Much Multiplayer Challenges today.

Gunslinger – Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1500 cR

Killing the enemies isn't that hard. Nor is killing 150 of them, it is time consuming though. If you do multi team flat out it'll take you about an hour. If you've got more time though, just enjoy yourself.

A Great Friend – Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Team up as always. Call out your targets and punch them or shield pop them then hide in your Armour lock. Then let your friend finish them off with pistol headshot. Repeat.

Double Double – Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1350 cR
A Solid Outing – Earn at least 12 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1600 cR

I'm going to do these ones together. Multi-Team. That's all you need. The kill amounts you can get are crazy. I once got 45 kills in 1 objective game because they last so long and there's so much carnage. An added 8 Double Kills on top of that, King of the hill is good for grouping enemies, try and aim for that.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 30/12/2010

A Friend in Need – Earn 5 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1300 cR

If you're in Sniperfight, shoot the turrets of the incoming ships once. Then let the other guys take the kill. As for other enemies, just partner up. This challenge is so much easier when you have a friend to co-ordinate attacks with.

A Satisfied Thirst – Kill 250 Grunts in Firefight Matchmaking – 1800 cR

Keep on playing Gruntpocolypse. Aim for the head, it'll help out with another challenge.

Demon – Kill 10 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking – 1250 cR

Sniperattack will give you 4-16 Elites so It can take 1-3 games. Scoreattack will give you 6 - 7. Maybe 1 of each will work well.

Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 2000 cR

That's what Noble 6 is. Gruntpocolypse is good for this as you get a DMR & Pistol, both weapons are able to get headshots, so stick with it and you'll have 100 in no time.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 29/12/2010

Today is... The 29th, beyond that I don't know, it's all sort of blurred together.

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

Kill 150 things in whatever way you feel like. Play Multiplayer, set up your own Custom Firefight, doesn't make any difference to this challenge.

Killagruntjaro! – Earn 10 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 1000 cR

Same as the one on Monday, the only difference is that this one can be done on any difficulty. Though, it being match made you don't have much of a choice in the difficulty, as far as I'm aware.

Sticky Icky Icky – Earn 4 sticky grenade kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1500 cR

Gametype that start you off with Sticky Grenades of give you a bunch of them are always good. I'm talking about Elite Slayer & Invasion. These gametypes will give you a bunch of them. Just a case of lining up the throw.

Vengeance Found – Earn your ‘Revenge’ in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1150 cR

To get a revenge, kill the guy that just killed you. I suggest Arena Doubles for the fact that there's only 2 people on the other side. Killing the person that killed you it much more likely with less people.

That be all, have a pleasant evening, good night.

Nope, I lie. Small update on the weekly, you can do the same mission over and over again. That's if you want to.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 28/12/2010

It be Tuesday, Day 2 in your Challenge against the weekly. I intend to do 2 a day, should give an even spread. The challenges today, good pay off.

Fire When Ready – Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Not hard at all. Just another grind till you kill enough. Should only take a couple of games of Multi-Team.

One Spartan Army – Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 1500 cR

Same as above buy you only have A.I. to fight. A legion of Grunts if you will. Not very challenging.

T-Hug It Out – Kill 7 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1350 cR

Melee, Sword, Hammer and Shotgun are your weapons here. Invasion is very good for this as it gives you the weapons you need and confined spaces to fight in also the time required. 12 mins per round, east time to get 7 close combat kills in 1 game.

Aggressive Negotiations – Earn at least 17 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 3000 cR

Multi-Team is your best bet. Objective would be great but Slayer will work just as well. 50 kills between 2 people is 25 each, more than enough.

That's it today, easy pickings so best use that time for the weekly. Have fun.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 27/12/2010 This Is How We Do It

This Is How We Do It

This Is How We Do It - Complete 9 Campaign missions on Heroic - 10000 cR

Here we are, full circle. The was the first weekly challenge for those of you who didn't have the game back then. If this is a case of repeating the same weekly challenges of just revisiting an old one I'm not sure. Might be a little encouragement for those of you who got the game over Christmas to go and play the single player story and play it the way it's supposed to be played.

It doesn't matter though and what does matter is finishing the level. It doesn't make any difference if you die or play co-op. You need to get from point A to point B and finish. It's not hard but throughout the week I will post up titbits to help you out with the challenges. For starters you can check out the Deathless Legendary I've posted above. That'll help on the missions listed and linked.

So until tomorrow I leave you to have a go. Have fun.

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 27/12/2010

New week, more challenges to acquire. Nothing out of the ordinary to start with. All very simple.

More Than a Handful – Kill 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1750 cR

No challenge here, just a bit of grinding. I'm going to say go for the Multi-Team as that gives you the most bang for your buck. More people, more teams and more carnage. Best way to get kills is to play objective games and just stay within shooting distance without getting to close.

One Spartan Army – Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

One game of Scoreattack will get you this. Doesn't matter what Scoreattack mode you choose. Goes nicely with the next challenge.

Heroic Killagruntjaro – Earn 10 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder – 1000 cR

10 multikills is a rather small amount. Double kills come rather frequently and on Corvette, if you grenade the monsters closets you can get anything from a Double to a Killtac. Mix that in with another door using a fuel rod and you've got a big boom and 7-8 of the multikills there.

Sweep the Leg – Perform an assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1100 cR

Stealth is required, or luck, or an unaware opponent. All you need to do is be up high and unseen, pounce on them at the right time. Another good a way is to run up behind a guy when there's a fight going on. Even better if the person they're fighting has Active camo activated. Anything that keeps their eyes away from the motion tracker is a bonus.

That's all, I'll be up with the weekly, shortly.

Sunday, December 26, 2010

Halo Reach Daily Challenge 26/12/2010

Morning all, apparently it's a Sunday. This means it's your last chance to get the weekly challenge.

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

Kill 150 enemies however you want. I'm going to guess that after the rest challenges you'll still be short. Plan of action, use that time to grab some extra waves.

A Great Friend – Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000 cR

Always easier when you team up with a friend. Co-ordinate attacks so that you remove the shield and your friend can get the final shot in. Weilding a Plasma Pistol while your friend has a headshot capable weapon (Or even the rockets) can work well, this enables that even if they have armour lock, you can get a quick kill in before they use it.

Headshot Honcho – Kill 9 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1700 cR

Somewhat tricky, Snipers & Swat are good gametypes here but even then you'll require a fair chunk of luck. To get 18%of the kills in a game isn't to much but you can fall behind or miss out on the action. Plus, all those kills must be headshots. Play it safe, play from a distance.

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

Grab a friend and charge through, Winter Contingency. Hug the right cliff when you first meet the Covenant and keep hugging the right until you reach the bottom of the map with the troopers. Once you've done that, assist in wiping out all the enemies and when you get to the next part, just hide in the structure. When conflict is finally unavoidable. It's Grunts & Jackals. Grenade to get them when they group and finaly let one person grab a Plasma Pistol before entering the final room. Then it's just a case of finishing off the final Elites. Pistol/DMR headshot after a Plasma Bolt will wipe them up quickly.

That's all, enjoy your leftovers and I'll see you again tomorrow.
