Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/07/2011

Happy Bungie Day. How many of you are attempting to get a Steak today?

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 1100cR

Simple and easy stuff. A game of Scoreattack x2 will get you it in one and the extra Elites it drops off will help with other challenges.

On the Sixth Respawn... - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game with fewer than 5 deaths - 2000cR

Just play it smart. Most enemies use close range weapons. Plasma Pistols, Needlers, Spikers. The only weapons that pose a threat at range are the Needle Rifle and Focus Rifle, with a splattering of Fuel Rod every once in a while. So take a DMR and fight at range.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

A couple of Scoreattack x2 games will work nicely here.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

Of all the challenges there have been, there are challenges that take longer and are more challenging, but none have ever felt like such a grind, like this one. The vehicles are only moderately predictable. Holdout has a Banshee you can blow up but other large maps such as Outlook & Beachhead with get a vehicle to blow up every blue moon. Other maps barely get any. They are more common in Firefight but you've also got a 1/4 of the chance of blowing it up. If you can grab some friends, this challenge will go by much better.

I have been told by Shannon that if you can get Sniperattack on Hold out, it only takes 2/3 shots to take down a Banshee and also adds to my earlier assumptions that they are set on a timer. So the longer the game, the more Banshees.
