Halo Reach Daily Challenge 09/01/2011

Last day for that weekly challenge. If you're still a few short, there's 1 here that may prove troublesome.

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2500 cR

250 enemies, in Firefight, Multiplayer, Campaign. All very basic.

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. What you want to do is use the target locator to take out both wraiths. Then leave it alone for a while. It'll get back one of its' Volleys. Move on up to the gun and once the Volley has come back, use it around the front of the building. Before you move on up, grab a Plasma Pistol. Against Elites, there's nothing better to use to remove shields. Then, move on up, behind the building. Run up, hit the switch and jump back down.

Now, drive back the way you came, past ONI base (Pick up the Target Locator). Head towards the radio outpost and once again, hit the area with a Volley of Artillery. Drive to the switch, hit it quickly, then drive back to the second one and hit that. Now, drive back to gate and drive past all the enemies. Speed will save you. Open the gate and jump in.

Move up slowly. Using cover and Plasma to take out the Elites. Once inside. Grenades & Shotguns will be useful against the Hunters. Take the lift up and slowly push on once again with a DMR & Plasma Pistol. Once you've reached the top, first priority is to get the Rocket launcher and take out the Elites.

After that, the Banshees will cause you no problems. You can even let Emile finish the mission.

J.H. Death Machine – Kill 20 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher – 1500 cR
Heroic Holdout – Kill 50 enemies in Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Going to combo these ones. Play Scoreattack and keep pressing none of the above until you get Holdout. Then select score attack. After that, go nuts with the grenade launcher.


  1. To get the office off not dying there's a small cheat.
    Simply play the level from the start, die as many times as it takes.
    Before the end save and quit returning to the main menu.
    Re-enter the game and complete.
    The number of deaths resets every time you save and quit.


    a TILC

  2. @mike, I know there's a cheat. I have said that before. I just dislike talking about it and using it. I will use it if needs be though :P.

  3. Personally I believe Bungie publish some of these challenges to bring attention to the game glitches which would be considered advantageous.
    Purely to keep the playing field level.

    Good on them if you ask me.
