Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/05/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 1875cR

If you can get yourself into 2 Scoreattack x2 games, you'll just about scrape past. If you play just the one Scoreattack x2 and then another random one, it'll be clipping it very close. If you venture into Firefight, It's hard to determine what you'll get. That's all up to you.

Came From Behind - Perform 3 Assassinations in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1200cR

Objective games are good. Use the objective to distract them and lay in wait somewhere ready to pounce out. One gametype that I've found really good for assassinations is Hockey. Found under Action Sack, you're very strong while wielding a Golf Club. Your speed is stupidly fast, so go try it out if you can.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Double Kills aren't that hard. Best shot though is when there are more than 2 teams. Multi-Team and Rumble pit are good. Find 2 people fighting and just finish them both off. Alternatively, grab a Rocket launcher or hop into Living Dead or Grifball. Once again, easy Double kill gametypes.

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

Just play till you win. Play the games you enjoy and are good at. Can't really help here with any other hints. Other than getting with a group of good players.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 06/05/2011

30 minute business meeting. Got out 2 hours later. Time to keep it short and simple.

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1000cR

Just play the game. If you need help with this, I don't really know what to say.

Now I have a Machine Gun – Earn 30 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1250cR

Over all the games you play today, I'm sure a fair few of them will start you off with an AR or Plasma Repeater or even a Needler. In fact, Invasion does just that. Enjoy.

Not as Clumsy or Random… – Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000cR

SWAT or Snipers. 5 kills is easily doable. It's 10% of the kills required. Don't even need to headshot.

Iron Will – Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic with the Iron Skull on – 2500cR

I've got legendary deathless above on a seperate page. Or you could have a look back at LASO weekly challenges. Follow that guide on Heroic with no other skulls. It be a cake walk.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 05/05/2011

One Spartan Army – Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking – 1875cR

With all the other Firefight games you'll be playing today, no trouble here. Best thing to do is just aim for other challenges and finish off the rest with one more game.

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

A somewhat annoying amount. best shot here would be Gruntpocolypse, you can actually take that phrase and place it in for all challenges today. Grunts drop loads of grenades. Enough to cover a fair section of the map you're playing. Use it to your advantage. You don't need to throw it to get the points. Shoot one, watch the chain, get the kills. Grunts are just easier to kill. Corvette will once again help wit the confined spaces.

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

Gruntpocolypse. I would also suggest using that pistol to combine it with...

Be Their Huckleberry – Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol – 1250cR

They go hand in hand. Take your pistol, hit a few Grunts in the head with it, points for both challenges. Then once you've killed 100 with a pistol, Just go for the headshots.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 04/05/2011

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

Simply done by just playing the game. There are a few good challenges today to help speed this one along. Custom Firefight is always a good way to top off what you need though.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

10 kills is all you need, or 5 if you happen to wield a Shotgun or Sniper. (These being the more likely, spreeable weapons you'll start with).

There Are Many Like... - Kill 50 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today - 1000cR

ONI Sword Base & Nightfall both start you with ample amounts of Precision Weapon ammo (DMR & Sniper respectively). Once again, no big challenge here, just walk your way through a level till you've got the challenge.

Three Dog Fight - Earn a Triple Kill in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Multi-Team is a good place to start. Rocket Race can get you a triple rather nicely if you focus on it. The best place to stay though is inside that community playlist. Action Sack games are good ways of getting this challenge as most game types leave you weak or with a very big objective tat requires your attention. Grifball, once again my personal favourite, and Living dead. The 2, chaotic, low health games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 03/05/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

A single game of Scoreattack will get you this once nicely. Take your time and don't die too often. Really, there's nothing else to it. Just pick a nice map.

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

Time to spam. Best level is Corvette. Those monster rooms are brilliant at holding explosions. You'll need to run around a lot to get the grenades, so you'll die a few times but then you get more grenades. Gruntpocolypse is brilliant. Never a shortage of grenades.

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

Find a nice easy mission such as Winter Contingency or Nightfall and just run it. A couple of run-throughs up top you can use, although Heroic isn't that hard. Just take your time.

The Magic Number - Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1350cR

If you require help in completing games because you hate to lose, I can't help you. Just stick with it and play.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 02/05/2011

More than a Handful - Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2500cR

Better get your fighting duds on. This'll take a while but it's certainly doable. Grifball is good for speed, Multiteam if Grifball isn't your thing. Those will be the quickest ways but if you happen to have a special talent for some gametypes, go for it.

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 1000cR

Like the above one except in any mode. Firefight, Multiplayer or Campaign. Well we got a wide spread of challenges so, I don't see any problem with this appearing soon.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 50 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Winter Contingency has a Stupid amount of AR ammo. That'll be your main weapon. You can blitz through this in about 10 minutes if you start from Rally Point Alpha. Just play to the end of the mission.

Triple Thrill - Earn any 3 Sprees in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Best thing to do, plan this one. Sprees do come fairly frequently if you play it smart. I'm more of a close combat reckless guy so, not for me. Some of the best things to do are to play objective games. This'll get you basic killing sprees. The next thing for you to do is find a decent weapon. Power weapons such as the Sniper, Sword, Hammer and Shotgun, all have their own sprees attacked. If you can get a hold of them, you'll be in luck.

My own personal favourite though, Living Dead. 5 kills with the shotgun will get you, Killing, Zombie Killing and Shotgun Spree. A very nice 3 for one combo.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 02/05/2011 Alexandria: LASO

New Alexandria: LASO

Complete Alexandria, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO)


Well, back on to this one. I'll once again say head over to HBO because they know more about it. Just remember, Ivory Tower & Club Errera are easy to do, you can run, jet pack and sneak around most of the challenges and the other challenges along the way, very easy too. The only hard part is the Hospital. So if you can, try restarting the mission till you don't have it first. Another thing to try, go for the Pelican. You're invincible in that. For now, I'll let the Guys with the real plan take over.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 1/05/2011

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 1125cR

Very simple, once again. Find any way to kill an enemy and kill an enemy with it. Campaign and Custom Firefights are good ways to rack up kils quickly. As always, leave this challenge till the end.

Headshot Honcho - Kill 9 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1080cR

SWAT is a good gametype here. 1 shot and you don't need to be all that accurate. 9 kills is doable in one game provided you're quick enough to find the enemy. If you're having a bit of trouble, switch out to Snipers if you're better with them, or Invasion if you want a longer time to kill.

L.D. Exodus - Complete Exodus, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on - 5000cR

Remember last week, remember all the pain? Well now this'll feel like a pin prick comparatively. I'll go ahead and link that challenge. It's more or less the same basics, only now, you've got a higher chance of survival.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1250cR

Need to make a big boom. Good gametypes are Rocket Races (If you're lucky enough to get one) or Invasion. Getting to that final tier gives you a Concussion Rifle or Grenade Launcher. The 2 weapons you're more likely to come across. You can also use the Rocket Launcher and Fuel Rod cannon as well, so pick that up if you find it.
