Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/05/2011

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

Nice and simple. You'll need to play a couple of games to get this one. It's just killing enemies so there's not much of a challenge here.

Cook ‘em, Clean ‘em – Kill 10 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you’re jet-packing – 1200cR

You must be holding down the equipment button as you kill them. Flying high and getting the kill on the way down doesn't work. One tactic is to get some plasma grenades and stick your enemy before then just flying away. Provided they don't have Armour Lock, you'll get a medal. Power weapons such as Rocket launchers and Splasers work well (There is a gametype in Action sack called Splockets which gives you both those weapons and a choice of Camo, Armour Lock, Sprint & Jet Pack)

Katanarama – Kill 5 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking – 1500cR

All I can hear in my head is Deadpool from MvC3. Best way to get this one is to play some Scoreattack x2. The last wave is a good 15 Elites, they're weak and a few carry energy swords. You can also do it the old fashion way. Play regular Scoreattack, grab a plasma pistol and find the Elite with the sword. Kill him and on the remaining 5, plasma Pistol & Sword your way into them.

Credits for Completion – Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1200cR

Just play, stay and don't AFK.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/05/2011

Blogger's back up, so here I am again. Just goign to update with the challenges today and everything should be back to normal, in 11 hours.

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

Nice and simple start once gain. Just go around in Reach, killing anything that turns your Crosshair red. Custom Firefights are easy enough but it's always best to leave this one till last. It's very likely you'll get most of the kills on the way.

Showtime - Earn 5 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1250cR

Plasma Pistols and your fist are good weapons here. Both will pop the shield on your opponent leaving them wide open for someone else to take a quick shot. Best done when you've got someone with you. Also a nice armour ability to take with you is Armour Lock. Hit them, then keep covered till your friend kills them.

Killing Frenzy - Earn a Killing Frenzy in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Try and stay close to the action but not right in it. Objective games always work well as the enemy will be looking to get something to somewhere. So you just be a little camping bugger till that's done. Or you can try one of the non standard gametypes. Living dead, if you keep them away at a distance, you'll be fine for the most part. Just don't take on too many zombies at a time.

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

If you've been going for the weekly, this one will come as no challenge. Play a small map and when you die, remember the name of the guy who killed you and his most distinctive feature. Helmets are usually good, especially EVA, Pilot, Mk5, Mk6 & Security ones. Armour effects are the next big give away. Just remember where you died and get there fast.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/05/2011

Blogger may be down, that's not going to stop me updating. It's Thursday, so get ready for some Firefight.

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

A couple of games of Scoreattack x2 will get you around 260 enemies. Most other Scoreattacks will leave you a tad short. As for Firefight, with 3 Allies fighting for kills, it's a bit of a mystery as to how many you'll get. Though as with these ones, best left till last. Sometimes the other challenges push you over this amount.

Scoped – Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons – 1000cR

DMR & Sniper are Precision weapons and Sniperattack, will give you a very nice ammo supply. As for other games, most of them will give you a DMR with an ammo supply somewhere. So I'd say Gruntpocolypse of Sniperattack for speed. Otherwise, go as you feel.

Grunt Spelunking – Kill 1000 enemies on Glacier in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000cR

The last challenge wanted you to kill with precision, now you need to kill... Sorry, Just misread that. 1000 enemies. That'll take a few times round. Certainly doable, though it'll take 8-9 Scoreattack games. You'll want to keep choosing none of the above till this map turns up, then just pick the gametype you want. The quicker the gametype, the better.

Demon – Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking – 1200cR

If you're going Spelunking, I'm sure you'll be fine here. If not, you'll want to play either Firefight, or Scoreattack x2. SAx2 gives you the most Elites in any Scoreattack I've seen. Although There are some gametypes I've yet to try.

Have fun out there. Don't get too cold though.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/05/2011

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

Go into multiplayer and start shooting, punching and explode your way to victory. Play games you like or are good at and keep on killing.

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

Holdout will give you a Banshee or 2 when you play so that's a good way to start off this challenge. Another way to get vehicles is to play large maps such as Beachhead in Firefight. Scoreattak doesn't give you many vehicles to destroy.

Harder Than Some – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Thunderstorm, Famine and Tilt on – 2500cR

There's no Iron skull and there's no need to not die. So this challenge is already rather easy. Most levels are easy already. You can sprint past 90% of the combat in the early missions. Do it right in Nightfall, you only need to kill 5 enemies, not a single shot need be fired and you won't be shot at. Just stick to the right and run.

Participation Counts – Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1200cR

Exactly as it says on the tin. Just play and complete 4 games. Don't AFK though, you can be caught and have a cR block. Plus it's a dick move.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/05/2011

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

Scoreattack x2 will give you everything you need. More than 120 enemies to kill and weapons and ammo to kill them with.

Support Structure - Earn 30 assists in Firefight Matchmaking - 2250cR

Don't think we've had one as high as 30 before. Anyway, Firefight is where you need to be, best when done with 1 or more friends. If you coordinate your fire and have a few plasma weapons on hand, you can do a lot of beginning damage and let a friend finish them off.

A Side of Huevos - Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal - 1000cR

We had a weekly involving this a while back. Best thing to do is to start from the beginning and find the first large congregation of enemies. Once you've done that, take aim and fire. Once you've got a nice few kills, revert to saved. This way, your ammo stays replenished and there's always enemies to kill.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 40 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1300cR

Assault Rifle, Plasma Repeater and Needler are you main weapons here. Invasion is nice as all those weapons are available from the start. Now you just need to kill with them. Shouldn't be too hard.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/05/2011

Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1100cR

Starting off simple and keeping you on track for the weekly. Just jump in to any game you want and kill your way through the enemy. Slayer games won't allow you to get this in one game (Unless you're very skilled or Lucky) Objective is where that's at. Although, doesn't need to be done in one game anyway, so enjoy yourself.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 70 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher - 1250cR

Your normal Scoreattacks or Firefights will give you your GL but your effectiveness lessens as the enemies get harder to kill. Scoreattack x2 however, keeps you relatively strong throughout the entire game. Provided you keep that GL loaded, you've got few problems that can't be fixed with a small explosion.

Credits for Completion - Complete 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1250cR

Simple, just play. Nout else to say to this one. Just don't quit.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

The amount of Elites you'll kill in games varies. More so in Firefight as you'll be fighting for those kills. I'd suggest more Scoreattack x2. The final wave gives you a good set of elites to kill. Not sure how many, but usually at least 15. Sniperattack will give you 4 - 16 and Scoreattack normal will give you a very strong, 6 gold.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 09/05/2011 Best Served Cold

Best Served Cold

Take your Revenge on 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking


Well here we go. A nice challenge here. All you need to do is play multiplayer. Revenge medals come by killing the guy who killed you. Over all, not that hard. The quickest ways to get Revenge Medals that I've found, is to go into some Doubles games. With a 2 Vs 2 combat area, it's a 50/50 change of getting the guy who killed you. Other games such as Grifball are other good ones as you usually just plough through the enemies anyway. If you just play online and get 11 revenge medals per day, you're on track to get it.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 08/05/2011

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

Nice and simple start to your Sunday with. The other challenges will require you to kill more than 180 enemies anyway. So just go for them and see what comes out.

There Are Many Like... - Kill 200 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today - 1500cR

ONI Sword Base and Nightfall give you plenty of ammo and precision weapons so I'd suggest starting there. Lone wolf can also be a viable solution, there's a bit of DMR around & a sniper. So take your pick.

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

Outlook is good. Almost guaranteed a Banshee or 3 over the course of the game. Other large maps such as Beachhead are likely to give you vehicles, but it's a random amount.

You Want This, Don't You? - Earn 12 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1500cR

SWAT, Snipers and Invasion are what you want. Invasion is good if you need a little more time to kill.
