Halo Reach Daily Challenges 04/06/2011

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

Stick yourself in a Scoreattack x2 and provided the enemy don't get to grenade happy and take themselves or their allies out, you're set to get it in one game. If not, well, start another game up.

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

Assists, always easiest when done with a friend present. Take out an enemies shield possibly pop a few extra rounds into them depending on your weapon, then let your friend know now is the time to finish them off. Armour lock is useful to run up, punch and then hide so you don't die.

T-Hug It Out - Kill 6 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1200cR

I'd just say go ahead and play a game of Grifball. Hammers & Swords are very good close combat weapons and it isn't hard to kill in Grifball, though it's also a bit challenging to not be killed. Games where Shotguns are a prime focus (Shotgun Assult, Shotty Snipers) are also good. Or you can just go in to any game type and use your fist to beat them up.

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

Play, but don't AFK. The latest Bungie Update told people they are getting heavy handed against people AFKing, so yeah, just play.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 03/06/2011

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 1000cR

Simple as always, play the game and provided you kill things that make your reticule turn red, you're already on the way there. Firefight is nice if you just want to get it over with but there's a lot of MP today.

I'm Rubber, You're Glue - Earn 1 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Only need the one kill so it's not that hard, what you want to do is make sure that you have plasma grenades. Gametypes such as Invasion, Elite Slayer & Dino Blasters (Under Action Sack) have you, at some point, play as an Elite and as an Elite you get Plasma Grenades.

Fourth Horseman - Earn 4 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Chaos will reign supreme. Remember, these stack, so a Triple kill will get you 2 towards the challenge (as you get one for the Double Kill, and so on). Grifball & Living Dead are nice to play, Multi-Team will provided you with lots of opportunities too. It can also be done in a regular Slayer/Objective match, but it opften depends on weapons and the chances of finding your enemies grouped and not too focused.

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

Play and Enjoy. Can't really force this one, unless you're some cheating bastard, but let's not get into that.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 02/06/2011

Back into Firefight, I think Thursdays are the days of grinding.

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

4 games of Scoreattck should do it for you. Although having a look at some of the other challenges in store, I think this one will be arrive while you're still working on the others.

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

Always a bugger this one. Holdout has a Banshee and maps such as Beachhead contain a Wraith, or 5. Depends on how lucky/unlucky you get. Normal Firefights tend to give more vehicles and Scoreattacks and other Firefight modes tend to rarely give you them.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1200cR

Fastest way I can think of is Scoreattack x2. Many an Elite will come charging towards you. Just make sure you kill them before an Invisible sword wielder comes up to you.

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 200 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol - 1500cR

Gruntpocolypse will server you well but on top of all the other challenges, I'd suggest just starting matches with your pistol and just hope it lasts you long enough. Jackals, Grunts, Brutes and Skirmishers aren't so bad, but Elites will cause a problem, though you can just shield pop and switch weapons.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 01/06/2011

New month, how be ye all? Having fun with the weekly challenge? All very simple today, don't really need too much help, at least I hope not.

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

A few games where killing is a viable option and you'll get this no problem. Grifball, Multi-Team, Action Sack is where I'd go.

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

10 enemies in a row. You can't seriously need help with that. Scoreattack Gruntpocolypse is easy enough.

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

It's practically a free 3000cR. This guy has a very long post on how to do it, it's a bit wordy but it goes into exact detail.

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

Grifball is a good way to get this, as is Living Dead. It's the whole, weak enemy lots of chaos thing.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 31/05/2011

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

A single game of Scoreattack will give you what you need. Play what you like.

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

Partner up and enter the Firefight world. Assists will need to be called out so you know where to aim. When the shield has gone pop, a round it won't stop, from the base of the head to the brain. So yeah, call out targets, hurt them a bit then let your friend finish them off.

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

What was challenging to begin with is rather easy now. Long Night of Solace from Rally Point Alpha, or New Alexandria. Either one will suit your needs, just stick it on a hard difficulty, Heroic or Legendary and put on as many skulls as possible.

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

Action sack has a rather nice Splockets game mode. Those rocket launchers help towards the challenge rather nicely.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/05/2011

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

180 enemies in whatever game mode over the course of the day. The other challenges make you kill 370 enemies today, more than double this, so go ahead and just leave this one be. It'll just complete itself.

This is My Rifle... - Earn 20 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Over the whole of today, easy stuff again. SWAT & Snipers give you precision weapons and after a few games you'll have this easily. I'd guess 2-3 games.

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

More precision Weapons. Nightfall and ONI are my bets once again for this challenge. Nightfall gives you a tonne of Sniper Ammo and ONI Gives you Full DMR and a sniper a 10 second walk away from the starting place. Find a nice concentration of enemies and revert to saved.

Heroic Holdout - Kill 150 enemies on Holdout on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1250cR

To get to 150 will take a couple of games unless you're very good at getting the majority of kills in Firefight. I'm certainly not. Also, Getting challenge specific maps in Firefight is hard as you can't always vote none of the above compared to Scoreattack.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 30/05/2011 Alexandria: LASO

The Pillar of Autumn: LASO

Complete The Pillar of Autumn, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO)


Well here it is. We all knew this was coming. This is the final mission that we need to complete (Not including Lone Wolf). It's certainly no cake walk. You have Drones and many, many powerful Elites between you and your targets. There are many powerful weapons on your way, Splazer, Rockets and Grenade Launchers. Once again, HBO will take the lead, that guy knows what he's doing compared to me and my friends attempts at just brute forcing our way through.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/05/2011

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

If you get yourself into a Scoreattack x2 you can do this in one sitting. However, there is another Firefight challenge that requires you to play Firefight, not Scoreattack, so how you tackle this is up to you.

Eyes in the Sky - Kill 10 enemies with the Designator in ONI on Heroic - 1000cR

A new one, not challenging but new none the less. Rally Point Alpha will actually set you at the point where you get the Designator, so if you start from there and Take out the wraiths using a DMR to take out the turret gunner and then running up to beat the crap out of the driver, you can use the Designator on the huts at the Gun and Radio locations. Easily get 10 kills there.

Bulletproof - Complete 2 Rounds in a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying - 1100cR

Scoreattack only has the one, so Firefight is where you'll want to be. You want to put a fair bit of space between you and your enemies, the last waves will really push you and the sooner you do it the better. I would suggest something like Rockets or FRG, just so you can quickly kill whatever is coming at you, and a Jet Pack to get the hell out when things turn bad.

Freelancing - Earn at least 21 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2100cR

In one game, I still say stick with Multi-Team or even Grifball. Even though MT has less teams than it used to (I still prefer the 6, 2 man teams) it's still a good gametype to get a bunch of kills. Play objective and make sure the game lasts long.
