Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/06/2011

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 2000cR

That "any game mode" crops up again. With the ability to get 100+ in Firefight this challenge is no problem and looking forward into the challenges, you'll get this one very nearly done by completing the other challenges. As it is usually the way.

Helping Hand - Earn 10 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Buddy up (Invasion is always good) and over the whole of today, shield pop enemies and let your buddy know where they are to take them out. Fists, Snipers and Plasma Pistols are best. If you can use a Plasma Pistol to remove the shield and have your friend instantly hit them with a headshot, you're set.

Return of the Mack - Kill 50 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1700cR

Elite heavy missions, Long Night, That one section on Winter Contingency, Nightfall has a tonne and Lone Wolf. How you kill them is up to you.

The Love of the Game - Complete 20 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Just play, you'll be playing for quite a while. 20 games will take a few hours so play what you like and play what's short. Action sack games often finish in no time.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/06/2011

Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1200cR

With Multiplayer challenges as far as the eye can see today (Or more likely 3 paragraphs). 40 kills is anywhere from 1 game to 100 games. Just play something you enjoy and maybe go for the other challenges. I'm sure this one will just come with them.

Secondary Fire - Earn 25 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1875cR

Shield popping is a good way to go. Plasma Pistols, Melees, and Snipers are all good for that. Just make sure you've got a friend next to you so they can finish them off. 25 over the whole of today isn't a hard thing, although it will take time. Invasion has always been good for this one.

Aggressive Negotiations - Earn at least 16 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1600cR

Multi-Team and Objective based games are good as always. With no limit on the kills you're going to get you can continue going. Grifball is where I'll be staying for this. I generally find that 30 kills is the average amount of kills per game.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 15 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Another one that's over the whole day. Multi-Team, Rumble Pit, anything where there's chaos is good. Grifball once again a good choice. Another one you can take at your own pace though.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/06/2011

Oh yeah, it's Thursday. Guess that equals Firefight. Not brilliant for the weekly but, what the hay.

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

Any game mode, you could go through and get this in Multiplayer or you could go and do some of these Firefight challenges. Maybe a bit of both. Well for firefight you'll need a couple of games of Scoreattack x2 (possibly just the 1 and then something different) or if you jump into Firefight, it's all down to how well you do.

Scoped - Kill 200 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons - 1500cR

No challenge, lots of grind. Most gametypes give you a DMR to start with, use that to get your kills, or a sniper if you prefer. Remember to stay packed on ammo. I'd suggest a couple of games of Gruntpocolypse to help you get the easy kills.

Survivor - Earn 5 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1000cR

50 kills will get you this. You've got your killing sprees, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, good luck getting any more than that. Then you got your specifics. Assist, Sniper, Shotgun, Sticky, Vehicle. Between them all, it's rather easy to get 5 sprees.

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

Rocketfight is quite good when you've got a Jet pack/Sprint. Quick ability to get away and enough fire-power to keep the enemies at bay. Don't get too sure of yourself though, all it takes is one mistake, one bit of lag and you might turn yourself into a firework.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 08/06/2011

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

Short and sweet, 2-3 games (or 1 if you're lucky) and you can go around killing anything that's trying to kill you.

A Heroic Breach - Kill 150 enemies on Corvette on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

You'll need a couple of games to do this one. Scoreattack is best as you can keep going till you've got this map. Firefight, you may not be so lucky. As I can't think of any gametypes that give you more than 130 enemies in scoreattack, so just go round twice.

L.D. Solace - Complete Long Night of Solace, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on - 5000cR

Ha ha. No.

If you're serious though, I'd suggest cheating. Getting to the end, saving and quitting then starting back up again. LNoS is one of, if not the hardest level in Reach. Personally I'd say your time is better spent on the weekly.

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

Objective games where you stay away from the objective and kill people who go near it, is a good way to go. Other ways involve Action Sack, grifball & Living Dead.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/06/2011

So, how about that Halo:CE Anniversary, or that Halo 4. Looking good. I'm a bit too much of a fan boy. As for now we know very little about Halo 4 but an Updated Halo:CE is something I would, and I know many other people would, enjoy. The ability to switch between modern & classic look too, just amazing.

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

Nice and simple as always, the any game mode part of this makes it super easy. Go ahead and make a custom Firefight game if you want, although you'll want to spend a bit of time in the Multiplayer to keep on top of that weekly.

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

Games where you can't switch out weapons will be annoying. On top of the regular killing sprees (10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100) you'll want to get as many weapon ones as possible. Shotgun, Sniper, Plasma Grenade Sticks, Vehicle Splatters, Wheelmans, Sword, Hammer, in Firefight you've got a large selection. Just get a few of you together and focus on what you need.

Clip It. Share It. - Make a clip from your Local files and upload it to your File Share - 1250cR

Go into theatre mode and take a clip. 1 second, 5 seconds, doesn't matter. Then select it from the list, press X then upload it. Easy.

You Want This, Don't You? - Earn 10 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1250cR

SWAT, Snipers or Invasion is where I'd be. SWAT objective games work nicely for building the kills but the slayer versions of that & Snipers may leave you a bit short changed at the end. Invasion has nice long rounds for you to rack them up.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 06/06/2011 All in a Week's Work

All in a Week's Work

Kill 1000 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking this week


In a nut shell, go out and play games where you kill a lot. Grifball is what I'll be playing most of this week, if not all of this week. No real specific way to do this. Just enjoy yourself and make sure you get enough kills per day. If you get 100 kills per day, you'll need 250 over the weekend.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 06/06/2011

Sorry for the lateness. I'm at The Grange Hotel in London. All very posh... Too posh, not my style. Anyway, let's get on with it. Well they're certainly setting you off on the right track for the weekly.

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

Jump into games you like and start to kill. I'm sure you'll get a few kills towards this challenge completing the others.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em! - Kill 10 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing - 1200cR

You must be using the Jet Pack as you get the kill. If you're free falling, you won't get it. Though I assume there will be a few people getting this challenge. Needler shards can easily track flying targets.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 5 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Multikill heavy games are Multi-Team and Action Sack. Objective games work best.

Credits for Completion - Complete 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Start, Play, Finish. Easy stuff.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 05/06/2011

Last day for the weekly challenge, so get a move on if you want to complete that.

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

100 enemies in any way. Through Campaign, Firefight or Multiplayer. As the challenges today are a bit of each, you'll easily get it.

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

ONI & Nighfall are good as always. ONI giving you a Courtyard filled with enemies and a DMR and Nightfall giving you a Sniper with more than enough ammo. Just keep reverting to saved to keep your ammo high and keep destroying the enemies.

Killagruntjaro! – Earn 7 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game – 1000cR

7 multikills in Firefight. I'd certainly say those Monster Rooms in Corvette are good for this, as are grunts. For Firefight, this number is no challenge.

Came From Behind – Perform 2 assassinations in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1100cR

Invisibility, Speed and the higher vantage point are all good things to have. You only need 2 though to really get it. I found the Haloball Extreme is really good for this but any game works fin. Objective might work a bit better as when people are carrying something,, they walk slower. So I'd say invasion.
