Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/05/2011

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

Any way, any how. Just enjoy the game you're still playing.

Close Talking – Earn 30 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1250cR

Shotgun, Your Fist, Sword, Hammer. All very perfect ways of getting this challenge. Many gametypes such as Shotty Snipers, To the death, Grifball, Hockey and Haloball extreme use these weapons

Three Dog Fight – Earn a Triple Kill in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000cR

Grifball and Living Dead contain those easy to kill enemies but any game mode is good. If you can remove a fully loaded Warthog in Rocket Race or any other game mode from the map, that's a triple.

House of Pain – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Mythic, Tilt and Thunderstorm on – 2500cR

Do you need to live the whole way through, no. Just throw yourself at it.

Yeah, not the best update but I be rather tired. A lot of energy gone today. Back to normal tomorrow.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/05/2011

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2000cR

I'm running out of things to write for these ones. It's any game mode, so keep on truckin' through the challenges until you've finished them. Then do whatever you want to finish this one off.

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

In a single game, that can be a tad difficult. One plan is to play objective games. The predictability of enemies and the movement penalties often applied when you're in or holding them enable Invisible and speedy players to come up and nab the assassination.

Neuroscience – Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1200cR

SWAT is what I'd suggest. They've got a few Objective gametypes in there too now. So you can extend the game time if the kill amount is a tad small. If you're still having a bit of trouble, Invasion is nice and long and you can always spawn with at least 1 weapons able to headshot.

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

Have a fun long night guys, play what you like. Can't really speed this one up too much.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/05/2011

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

As always, we got the kill x amount of enemies. 250 will take you 2-3 games of Scoreattack and an unknown amount of Firefight, depending on your skill, lag and skill of allies. Still nothing challenging though.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Holdout has a Banshee and depending on how quickly you can kill them, up to 3 in Scoreattack. Beachhead is also another map where vehicles are common. Mostly in regular Firefight though.

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

Corvette is good here. Those monster closets work wonders for grenades. Throw a couple in and you can get 6 kills or more. Just remember to stay stocked up, you only get 4 max and Plasma Grenades are what you'll rely on. I say Gruntpocolypse, the weaker the enemy, the quicker they fall.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

Scoreattack x2 gives the most Elites per game (as far as I'm aware) Firefight may give more, but getting them all can be a challenge.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/05/2011

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

Not much to say here, go out there into the world of matchmaking and start killing. Really that's all there is. Play something you like.

Killagruntjaro! - Earn 10 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1100cR

Very easy this one. All you need is a bunch of weak enemies who go down with a single shot to their head (Gruntpocolypse) or you could try something a bit more explosive involving Rockets or Fuel Rod Cannons.

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

Rather simple here. Winter Contingency isn't know for its difficulty. Stick to the right and you can run past all of the combat all the way till you reach the bottom of the hill in the truck. Once there you just splatter the Elites then make sure none of the Suicide Grunts get close. Take the Falcon and hide in the building. The tough part is now. The Grunts, Jackals and 2 Elites. Provided you've still got a DMR & Plasma Pistol though, you'll be fine.

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

Stay High, Fast and Invisible. That's the best way to sneak up on them. Invasion is best I've found, enough places to camp.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/05/2011

Shootin’ and Lootin’ – Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 2000cR

400 is a fairly high amount. Guess with such an easy weekly they're really pushing us with the Daily challenges. Still not a hard challenge, 4 games of Match made Firefight will get this. Custom Firefight is also a good way to go.

A Friend in Need – Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking – 1000cR

Partner up and if you've got the Defiant map pack, hit up some Doubles Attack, with only 2 of you and a more predictable enemy attack, you and a friend can easily get this. If you don't have the map pack, then I guess you're into Regular Firefight. Still best to partner up, though you may find it a bit trickier.

L.D. Pillar – Complete The Pillar of Autumn, without dying, with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt and Tough Luck on – 5000cR

A little practice for next week. It doesn't specify Legendary but the L.D. usually means Legendary Deathless. TPoA is a bugger and a half, very long and there's that nice holdout area at the end, followed by all those Elites, and with those skulls on, I wish you good luck. One thing to do is follow HBO and their amazing LASO Guide, it'll be good practice. The other tactic, play with a friend and send one out to do the killing, while the other stays back. Takes twice as long, but, what else can you do.

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

I've always found gimmick games better for this. Action Sack games & Grifball are my favourite. Living Dead is another easy way to do it provided you got your back in a good place. It's easy enough to get though, Objective games will be your best bet.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/05/2011

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

Somewhat a bit of a time consumer. Will take at least 4-5 games minimal if you're getting a good amount of kills per game. Grifball & Objective Multi-Team games work rather well.

Pass the Rock - Earn 20 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

20 of them, fair enough. Partner up and start unleashing hell with your Plasma Pistols and fists. Shield breaking is always the best way to go, generally means you've done 50% damage abouts. Once again, Invasion is where I pace my bets.

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

Well Nightfall gives you the large amount of Sniper ammo and ONI Starts you off with a full DMR and a bunch of Grunts & Jackals. Reverting to saved after wiping out a large area plays rather nicely.

A Satisfied Thirst - Kill 100 Grunts in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Get yourself into a Gruntpocolypse game. Those things give you a nice 119 Grunts to kill. How you kill them, is up to you.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 23/05/2011 Not in the Face

Not in the Face

Complete any Campaign mission on Heroic in 15 minutes with Black Eye on.


Well, bit of an easy one. Nightfall is a runner mission. Less than 5 mins is needed (Provided you get a little lucky) Included is a video run-through on LASO Difficulty, Heroic Black Eye will be nothing compared to this. Enjoy.

Little notice, to get through the gate, you need to get out of the forklift, right at the join between the 2 doors.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/05/2011

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

Nice and simple once again. You'll certainly get those 100 kills today if you're going for other challenges. Stick to Campaign and little will go wrong.

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

Grunts, I've often found, are infantry class. So this one goes in hand in hand with a later challenge. The first set of levels, Winter, ONI & Nightfall I've found are best. Many lower class enemies of which are grunts. Just keep ploughing through the enemy till you've got it.

Cannon Fodder – Kill 100 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today – 1250cR

See above

Points Pyramid – Score 25,000 points on any Campaign mission – 1500cR

Stick on some Long Night of Solace, A Little bit of LASO (Legendary All Skulls On) and start from Rally Point Alpha. Flying that Sabre will rack up those points insanely fast. You can be done in moments.
