Halo Reach Daily Challenges 04/08/2011

Well, yesterday wasn't the best day for challenges, or the Reach servers. Apparently there were a few problems that needed to be sorted out. From what I've been told, everything is back to normal. I haven't tried it myself as it was fixed sometime last night and I'm at work.

If you're still getting server connection errors where you're rank and armour are set back to default, let me know. Any challenges you perform while in this mode will not count, so I gave up last night rather rapidly. Today is Thursday so we'll have lots of Firefight (Interesting story, I had the servers go down while in the middle of a Firefight game once, I waited on killing the last guy so I could regain connection) anyway, back on task... after 2 more announcements.

Bungie are releasing a final Halo video, it's apparently a 1 hour video about... stuff that you should be sure to watch. On the other side of all this, 343 have released a post showcasing some of the new sounds that are going to be in the Halo Anniversary game, so go watch that too.

I can give you news on top of challenges.

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

A single game of Scoreattack x2 will get you here but a couple of games will definitely get you it in any game mode. I do suggest sticking with the x2 for a couple of the other challenges though.

Demon - Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1500cR

This being one of the challenges for Scoreattack x2. The enemy may be plentiful but they are also weak, that or you do more damage, same difference. Anyway, Elites come in the final wave, invisible and fast. Many have swords but with the time taken to kill them it doesn't really matter that much. Just make sure you keep your eyes out for them.

Survivor - Earn 5 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Medals for 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100 kills. Weapons of interest: Snipers, Shotguns, Plasma Grenades. Possible splatters with Ghosts & Warthogs on maps such as Beachhead will also help. That's just 18 possible sprees.

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

Hate this one. Scoreattack won't cut it, vehicles are minimal. ArcadeFight is where you want to be, at least 1 vehicle per round and if you do doubles, 50/50 of getting it. Holdout has a Banshee that pops its head around every once in a while. Beachhead can get 2 vehicle drops if you're lucky. That's my knowledge of this challenge. How I dislike it so.
