Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/04/2011

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

Once again, easy stuff. One game of Firefight or a lot of general playing. I know some people will be getting this from Multiplayer.

Sweep the Leg - Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

All you need is the one. Playing the Invisible Man in an objective game can work out nicely, if they see through your cloak, try giving yourself some quick feet. Sprint/Evade works well for that. Also being on a different level to your enemy so they drop down in front of you or you drop down behind them works well. Or if you're lucky you might find an AFKer.

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

Winter Contingency gives you loads of Assault Rifle ammo. Just blast through the enemies from Rally Point Bravo onwards. What worked for me.

Home Field Advantage - Win 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1600cR

Have fun playing. Can't really help you here.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 17/04/2011

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

Any game type. Stick yourself in a Custom Firefight if you want and finish it in 10 seconds flat. However, with all the other Multiplayer challenges about today, you'd be silly to do that. Focus on other challenges, finish off these types of challenges after.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 4 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1300cR

Invasion is where I place my bets. As an Elite you get Plasma Grenades, as a Spartan, you get plasma Grenades by killing Elites. Nearly 25 mins of game time (If you really push it all the way) and 2 rounds gives you enough time to stick everything you need.

Aggressive Negotiations - Earn at least 17 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1700cR

Grifball, Invasion, Rumble Pit, Multi-team, Living Dead. These are the gametypes where it's very easy to get more than 17 kills. If the game is objective based rather than slayer, the better.

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

Grenade Launchers (BOOM! Ball), Rocket Launchers (Splockets), Concussion Rifles (Dino Blasters) & Plasma Launchers (Hog Potato... It's the best I can think off). The thing these gametypes have in common, all found under action sack.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/06/2011

Back from the Doctors, all nice and healthy... I wish.

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

A single game of Firefight is all that's needed. Any Scoreattack mode wil give you at least 100 enemies. So have fun.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking -1400cR

Scoreattack x2, that final wave will give you about half of what you need.

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

Holdout like to throw you a Banshee every once in a while, other than that, Beachhead is the only other map where I can remember a steady stream of Vehicles. If you just play regular Firefight in matchmaking with some friends, making sure to always destroy the Wraiths & Ghosts that come down is the best way I can think of.

Katanarama - Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

All I can hear in my head is Deadpool. Anyway, best chances of getting a Sword wielding Elite comes from a bog standard Scoreattack match or a Scoreattack x2. Just keep your eyes open during the final wave.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/06/2011

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

The challenges today, easily put you on top of this. "In any game mode" always makes these challenges easier. A single game of Firefight will do.

Grunt Spelunking - Kill 125 enemies on Glacier in Firefight Matchmaking - 1100cR

If you can get Scoreattack x2 on this map then you're good, otherwise you;ll need to perform a second run through. Firefight is very random, no promise you can get Glacier if you entered 100 games (Though that is unlikely)

Leadership Element - Kill 30 enemy leaders in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Nightfall is good for this mission. Leaders are generally Elites and Brutes. Long Night is another good mission, provided you go around and kill everything, this shouldn't take too long.

Fourth Horseman - Earn 5 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2500cR

Grifball, Multi-Team, Living dead. Very good choices here. Chaos will reign supreme.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/06/2011

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

A single game of Scoreattack will give this to you. That is provided you complete it and the enemies don't start fighting against each other.

Killagruntjaro! - Earn 35 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1750cR

This is a fairly large amount. Still not a big problem but you will need to be a bit careful. The time to get the next kill in Campaign & Firefight is much less than the 4 seconds you get in Multiplayer. Gruntpocolyse and its long lines of easy to kill Grunts will come in handy. Just make sure to throw a few grenades to keep the combo up and take out the masked grunts first.

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

Hardest mission, possibly. This LASO was very bad, this isn't as bad but if I'm honest, I'd say follow that guide.

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

Enter MP and win. You might want to spend some time in Invasion too. Just a little heads up.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/06/2011

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

A single Game of Scoreattack x2 will get you this, that is providing the enemies don't kill themselves too often. Weapon drops and the usual enemies tells you this isn't too hard.

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

Enter into Multiplayer and start proving you're the best, or at least better than the guy you're currently fighting. Another slow and steady one. Might take a few games but it'll be doable.

Aggressive Negotiations - Earn at least 17 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1700cR

Multi-Team is where we went before and it still is, although Invasion, Big Team Battle, Grifball and many other gametypes (Though mostly objective based ones) will give you this.

One Game, One Spawn - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying - 2000cR

Firefight gives you 3 rounds/15 waves of stronger and stronger enemies. Those heretic Elites with grenade Launchers and rocket launchers are extremely deadly. Stick to Scoreattack, stick to grunts. Just watch out for grenades covering the floor and those fuel rods they can aim far too well.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 13/06/2011That's Dedication, Holmes

That's Dedication, Holmes

Complete 150 games in multiplayer Matchmaking this week.


Simple again. with 7 days to play over, if you hit up 20 a day you're at 140 after the 7 days. Play the shorter games or the games you enjoy, but DON'T AFK play. Bungie are tracking and banning people who are doing it. That would be a shame wouldn't it.

Grifball, Action sack, Living Dead are what I believe to be the quickest gametypes.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/06/2011

Sunday is here. You got less than 24 hours to get that weekly challenge. You could still get it even if you haven't played at all this week. Though it is a bit of a long shot.

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

A couple of games will get this one easily. Any Scoreattack/Firefight gametype you enjoy, go and play it.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR
The Dream Shake - Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Do the Double, Double, Double.... Double? Who knows, either way, it's the same challenge, just a bit elongated. Games where chaos is a main part (Grifball, Multi-Team) and games where the enemies are weak (Living Dead, SWAT). Objective games also help. Other than that, just keep on pushing. Those 4 seconds are longer than you think.

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

It's not quite LASO, but the LASO guide will certainly help.
