Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/03/2011

Sorry about the lateness, had to kick start my router again.

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

This'll take 2 games of Scoreattack, or 1-3 games of Firefight. It's a lot of luck with Firefight and the highest number of enemies in Scoreattack is 119 (I believe). If you can, play Firefight, grab a Needler or Needle Rifle. You'll need it.

No 'I' in Team - Earn 6 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1500cR

6 in once game is easy enough to do. Play some Invasion with someone you know and use Plasma Pistols & Melees to great effect.

That Pink Mist - Kill 100 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking - 1250cR

Told you you'd need a Needler or Needle Rifle. So go ahead and play a gametype with infinite ammo, this will give you plenty of time to cause many enemies to explode. Once you've got them, you just need to shoot them till they explode and hope you get to the enemies first.

The Love of the Game - Complete 20 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Just play and finish. Don't quit. Do it 20 times. Beyond that, no way to help.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/03/2011

Friday, weekend is so close to being here. until then, why not occupy yourself with some Challenges, or work. Depends on who you are.

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

Done in no time. Takes very little time to reach 50 kills. 2-3 games (Provided you play a game where kills are frequent) You'll all know by now that I'll suggest Grifball & Multi-Team so yeah, have fun with those.

A Great Friend - Earn 15 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1125cR

Plasma Pistols are very nice for this. Also a combination of Armour lock and your own fist. Punch a guy, instantly go into lock and let your friend come in and finish him off. He'll have no shields so any weapon will kill him in a couple of shot. Invasion is where I'd put my money.

Un, Deux, Trois - Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1450cR

Not hard, not easy. This one will just come from playing. Pick gametypes you're good at that don't have a reasonably high possibility of being a draw (Invasion, Attack & Defend Objectives) Remember, FFA games such as Rumble Pit & Living Dead aren't good.

Make a Wish... - Earn a Running Riot in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2500cR

Leaving the hardest till last. This requires you to get 15 kills in a row without dying. This is very much one of the tougher challenges we've ever seen. For gametypes, most slayer games will be very close callers. Objective games are the better option, these enable you to find a good point to guard objectives from without putting yourself in too much danger.

Although, I think the best way to get this challenge would be to do Living Dead. Provided you start early enough. It'll be a slow start but watching your back for 3-4 zombies is much better than fending off 7 of them. If you take main point as they come towards your camping spot then there shouldn't be too much of a problem. Just remember to watch you motion tracker and watch for where they roll.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/03/2011

Just realized that Halo Reach has been out for around 6 months. We're halfway through the first year. Just a little something.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 1875cR

Rather simple and straight forward. With all the Firefight challenges today it'll take no time whatsoever.

Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 150 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 1125cR

Gruntpocolypse is very nice for this. 2 headshot grabbing weapons and unlimited ammo. If you combine this with Beachhead you can get 2 challenges in 2 games.

…And Recreation – Kill 150 enemies on Beachhead on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking – 1125cR

Just keep selecting none of the above in Scoreattack untill you get the map, then, for gametype, try to go with something headshotty if possible.

Demon – Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking – 1500cR

Firefight is better for this. Get yourself in an explosive game and wait for the Heretic Elite rounds. A good few Elites come out to play. Shouldn't take more than 3 games. Just depends on how lucky and greedy everyone is.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/03/2011

More Than a Handful – Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2500cR

Very easy challenge, just play matchmaking. Gametypes for speed are Grifball, Multi Team and at a push Living Dead. Any game will do though, so have fun.

Take a Dip – Kill 150 enemies on Waterfront in Firefight Matchmaking – 1125cR

50 on top of yesterdays challenge. Same plan though, play Scoreattack and keep selecting none of the above till you get this map. It may take a couple of games but overall, not much time required.

Return of the Mack – Kill 50 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder – 1700cR

Elite Heavy missions are nice. Nightfall has a bunch to kill. Though not while on LASO. You'll want to avoid as much combat as possible with that. Anyway, the basic plan is to just, unleash hell with your sniper at a large collection of them (A good 7+ are at the start) and then just revert to saved. After a few times you'll have done it. No more than 10 minutes (Provided you have nimble fingers).

Single Wield – Earn 40 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1300cR

The Pistol is a nice choice of weapon. It's small but oh so very powerful. SWAT Magnums is a good gametype (Can be done in normal SWAT but the added range of the DMR may cause aggravation). A few games of that and you'll be done. If you prefer other games but there happens to be shields, try the punch-shot. Hit them once and rather than hitting again, see if you can quickly get a head shot. On a side note, this tactic is useful when 2 people melee each other and loose shields. You have enough time for a DMR/Needle Rifle Shot or 2 Pistol shots before you "must" melee again. Leave it too long and you might end up down a kill rather than a double

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 08/03/2011

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

Go away and have some fun in Firefight or 4 Games of Scoreattack, mix and match even. There's no reall quick way to get this, you just will after playing for an hour, possibly a bit more.

Watersports - Kill 100 enemies on Waterfront on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Play Scoreattack and keep asking for none of the above until you get Waterfront. Pick a gametype that'll be fun and unleash hell. It can be done in 1 game provided that you finish it and the enemies don't suicide too much.

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on - 2500cR

Any mission will do. Put some practice in on Nightfall maybe, get used to the route, or just hit Winter Contingency up. 15 mins tops and provided you play it carefully/run through everything, no problems.

Put Your Quarter Up - Complete 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1750cR

Just play. Beyond that, nothing can be done. Living Dead & Grifball are the quick games. Play those and have fun or you can play regular gametypes. the choice is yours.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 07/03/2011 Nightfall: LASO

Nightfall: LASO

Complete Nightfall, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO).


This challenge, is much easier than you think. What it requires, is 2 people. With either Camo or Sprint and the other with Hologram or Sprint. The first thing to do is to stay quiet. You need to use one person as a runner who goes on ahead to get to places, while the other play distract. Let Jun focus on the destroy.

Keep to the right, only kill Grunts if you have to. If you get into a toe-to-toe fight with an Elite, Unless it's a lone Elite, you're stuffed. Circle around him, continuously melee him so you don't loose to much shield. Get it right and you'll get yourself an assassination. Once you Reach the (Gutá?) Plasma Grenades will kill them in one. Try to just run through though as that'll save time.

When you Find the other Survivors, stay to the left and just ignore them. Skip the fight and save your own arse (They wouldn't stand a chance). Now after finding the post, cross the bridge by silently killing everything on it and find the fork lift. There is a glitch that'll force you through the gate when you get out and there will be no enemies all the way to the end.

I'll try and nab a video of all this so you'll have a reference. While I wait for that, here's the walkthrough from HBO

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/03/2011

Back again fro another week. The weekly Challenge is one again, a LASO. More on that one later as I actually know how to complete that level (again, one of those best done co-op but can be soloed) First of all though, Daily challenges with one for each Multiplayer, Firefight & Campaign.

Gunslinger - Kill 75 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2250cR

lay a few games of Grifball or Multiteam and you'll be done. Alternatively, play any other gametype they happen to have available. 75 kills will take you no more than an hour.

A Satisfied Thirst - Kill 250 Grunts in Firefight Matchmaking - 1875cR

The best way to get Grunts, Gruntpocolypse. 120(ish) Grunts to kill however you see fit. You'll need to play 3 games to get enough but that doesn't take too long. Once again, done in an hour.

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

ONI Sword Base starts you off with a DMR, a Sniper just up ahead and a bunch of Grunts, Jackals and Elites. You can try mixing it in with the weekly but even a sniper on those Elites... your funeral.

Linked Up with - Link your gamertag with and play a game in Halo: Reach Matchmaking - 3000cR

Less to do with Reach and more with Go to and use the same E-mail address your Gamertag is linked to, to sign in. From there, you're more or less done. Now head intoyour setting and choose a nice picture to go with your gamertag. now you look cool, like the rest of us who get 3000cR today.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 06/03/2011

Alright, it's Sunday. You know the rules. If you haven't done that weekly challenge, finish it off now. It is doable in one day if you haven't started. Not Totally enjoyable, but still doable. For those who have finished, have fun with something else.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 2000cR

Easy, just play how you want. Custom fast paced Firefight games are a good way to rack up the kills. Normal Firefight isn't bad either (Provided it's something with explosives or hammers, or both)

Not as Clusmy or Random... - Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

5 kills with precision weapons can easily be done in SWAT or Snipers. In fact, most gametypes that give you a spawn option with a precision weapon are generaly fine for this challenge.

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

This one is always a tough one. The maps where there are vehicles, they only appear on regular Firefight. You can get an abundance on Beachhead but getting to them with 4 people competing, have fun.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Winter Contingency is the mission for this. The AR contains enough ammo to take out 100 enemies with it. If you start from rally point Bravo, you may do couple of run throughs but it won't take long. Possibly 10 mins if you do it quickly.
