Halo Reach Daily Challenges 02/04/2011

You remember that Halo Battle Chess they did for April Fools last year. This year, they made Battle Chess. Check it out.

Moving on, if you've perfected this week so far, today could be your big pay-off.

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

Nice and easy, play a few games of Firefight, or just one game of Scoreattack x2. Nothing else can really be said about this. That's all there is to it.

Sweep the Leg - Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Sprint, Evade, Camo and the element of surprise are your allies here. If you can jump down from a high place you can get this nice and easy. Invasion I've found is good. Lots of Surprising places in those maps.

The Little Guys - Kill 200 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1500cR

Stick it on normal and find a level filled to the brim with grunts. Winter Contingency, Exodus, Long Night of Solace has quite a few. Pick a level and have fun. It's only a normal AI after all.

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

Just play. Simple as. Finish the game and have fun playing, that's all there is to it.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 01/04/2011

Sadly, I don't have anything for April Fools day. Seemed like to much effort. However, OCRemix (A Video game music remix website) recently updated with a nice little remix of a couple of Halo 3 themes. So here it is to get you in the Friday mood.

Now, moving on.

More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

No problem, 2-3 games of anything really, you'll be done.

No 'I' in Team - Earn 8 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

This is a bit of a tough one. You need to focus completely on assisting. Best weapons for this are your fist and the Plasma Pistol. Mix in an Armour Lock and you can do this rather easily. Just make sure you have a friend with you who you can talk to. Gametype of Choice, Invasion. Lots of time and weapons you can use.

Aggressive Negotiations - Earn at least 19 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1900cR

You'll want to be playing a big killer. Multi-team is a big scorer here, if you can get a Objective gametype, even better. If you're struggling a bit on that (Wouldn't be surprising, 19 kills is a race against time) then try out Grifball. Many kills here and if you can get the ball, you can dictate how the game will play.

Vengeance Found - Earn your 'Revenge' in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Try out some Doubles games. These games are slower, but that gives you the time needed to find the bugger who killed you and the ability to get your revenge. Not challenging and you may even get it while achieving one of the others.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 31/03/2011

Firefight Thursday. We've gotten lucky this week, very simple, very nice, no vehicles.

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

2 games of Scoreattack, 1-3 games of Firefight. Not much else here, very basic.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Very simple once again, a couple of Games of Gruntpocolypse will set you on the right track. That DMR is very Deadly when combined with Grunt Heads. Even Skirmishers are nice to pop.

Heroic Spelunking - Kill 100 enemies on Glacier on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Just get this map and pick a nice gametype (One that helps with the other challenges). Best done through Scoreattack as you can then pick what level you want much easier.

Points, Points - Score 20,000 points in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1750cR

Firefight is brilliant for this. Many kills, many explosions, many points. If you're more of a Solo person, Sniperattack works very well if you play it right. Don't die too often and you can nab it nicely. Though there are many other gametypes out there that I haven't tried. If something works for you, stick with it.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/03/2011

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

Nice and simple. Start yourself in a game of, anything really. Grifball is what I'll be doing for speed purposes. Then, get to killing. No more than 2-3 games depending on what you're playing.

Climb Points Mountain – Score 500,000 points on any Firefight map – 1000cR

You'll enjoy this little gem. Corvette is the level and this is the gametype. Thankfully, not needed to be done in Matchmaking.

Hard Mode: Enabled – Complete a Campaign mission with these Skulls activated: None, Tough Luck, Thunderstorm, Tilt, Mythic – 2500cR

I don't understand the "none" skull there. I think it's just best to select this from the menu and let it take you to the campaign lobby. Now you can pick whatever map you like. Slight thing with Nightfall. They've fixed the gate glitch. You can still get through, but enemies spawn the moment you do so you still have to work your way up. Still, Beyond that, no fighting and very speedy.

Five-time Champ – Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1750cR

Play games you're good at is a helper. No real sure-fire way to win, part from cheating. Either way, just keep playing till you have them all.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/03/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

Very simple, A couple of games of Firefight/Scoreattack will get you this challenge.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

This one is easier that I first though. After playing some Scoreattack x2, the final wave was about 15 Elites and there were a few more mid game. I'm guessing 2-3 games of this will give you it.

Mythic Bustin’ – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Mythic Skull on – 1000cR

Loving the name. You can either Run through Nightfall in 6 mins (If you're Lucky) or you can spend 15 mins on Winter Contingency. Still running through the level and fighting a few enemies but able to be a bit more predictable. Although the lack of Iron skull does make Nightfall a little more appealing.

Better, Closer, Warmer – Earn at least 7 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000cR

7 kills it a tiny amount. Grifball for a definite get and speed run, any gametype will work just as well though.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 28/03/2011 Dedication/Time


Complete 24 Daily Challenges this week.


Very challenging this one. 6 days of all Daily Challenges. I hope you weren't going out this week. Slip ups can only be minimal and as we aren't sure of what will be appearing later this week, it's always best to do as many as possible. You can only miss 4 challenges.

Let's hope this week is an easy one.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/03/2011

Before I start, everyone who has a DS, go out and get Ghost Trick. Best game for the DS ever.

Moving swiftly on.

Gunslinger - Kill 75 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2250cR

Have fun in any game mode. High killers are Grifball and multi-team objective gametypes. You'll want to keep your speed up this week with the challenges.

Blast Radius - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades - 1000cR

Those Corvette monster doors are very nice for multiple grenade kills and remember, a grenade on the floor, if set off, any kills from that count too. Look for chain reactions you can spark.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher - 1000cR

Just bounce them right so they explode in large groups of enemies. Best done against Grunts, Jackals & Skirmishers, let them come to you. Brute will require a more direct approach. Elites, good luck, you may want to try weakening them first.

Survivor - Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1000cR

If you can get yourself 2 weapons that have special sprees, you're set. 30 kills (15 from each) will give you 9 sprees. If you're struggling. See what you can do on Beachhead. That Ghost is a good splattering vehicle, mix it in with a sniper and you're set.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/03/2011

Net problems, time changes and late nights. Good combo when you need to wake up.

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 1350cR

Very simple, just have fun killing things. Firefight is one of the better ways of getting this, set yourself up a custom game and... I'm getting a fair bit of Deja Vu here.

The Little Guys - Kill 75 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1000cR

Exodus & Winter Contingency are the levels that are filled with the little guys. That's where I suggest you start. Repeat till achieved.

Weapon Swap - Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder - 1000cR

If you can get fist fight, you're almost there. 15 kills with sword, that's 3 medals, another 3 with the hammers 15, that makes 30 kills so another 3 on standard killing. Now you just need to get 10 more kills with a weapon of your choice, or if you find another spree able weapons, go for that. 45 kills minimum required.

Killing Spree - Earn a Killing Spree in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Simple, basic, I love it. Play a gametype you enjoy that's good at getting these Killing sprees. Grifball & living dead are quick getters, SWAT , Slayer, Snipers. All possible too. Makes no difference to the challenge.
