Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/06/2011

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

Get yourself some Scoreattack x2. It'll work like a treat and you'll be done in no time flat.

T-Hug It Out – Kill 4 enemies with close quarters combat in a Multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1000cR

Grifball is what you need. Living Dead is another good way to go about it.

I’m Rubber, You’re Glue – Earn 2 sticky grenade kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1100cR

Games where there are Elites is the best way to get this. Elite Slayer, Dino Blasters and Invasion will help you get this.

It was the Winter… – Complete Winter Contingency on Legendary without dying – 1500cR

Not hard at all. You can skip 90% of the level by running, and any fights you have just need a few DMR hots and a plasma Pistol.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/06/2011

Blastin’ and Relaxin’ – Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach – 1350cR

Any game mode, if you need to pick up a few more Waves for the weekly, might be a good time, but with all the other challenges being MP, it's up to you the path you take.

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

In a single game. Snipers, SWAT, Invasion. These gametypes are the ones I choose. SWAT objective games can last a long time or can be over shortly. Luck of the draw.

The Dream Shake – Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2000cR

Chaos and Carnage. Grifball, Multi-Team and Living Dead are where my money is.

Home Field Advantage – Win 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2050cR

Just play the games you love or are good at. Or games that are 50/50 for luck (Mainly Action sack stuff)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/06/2011

Entirely unrelated but Happy Birthday to the Blue Blur Sonic. In honour of this day, I expect you to finish everything in record time.

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

Any game mode you say. Well, we've lots of Firefight to do today so I'd suggest starting there.

Killagruntjaro! - Earn 25 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1500cR

Just keep hitting the enemies. Scoreattacks Gruntpocolypse is good for this one as the Grunts fall very easily. Lob a grenade into the mix and just get the one with the helmet first, from there, head shot away with your DMR & Pistol.

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

Arcadefight in Firefight drops Ghosts & Wraiths rather frequently. The larger the map the better. Beachhead, Outlook, Holdout, all very good maps.

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

That Arcadefight mode as well as Scoreattack & Scoreattack x2 have GLs in the starting set. Go ahead and use them if you so wish.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/06/2011

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

A few games of anything will get you this rather nicely. The community playlist often has games with high kill amounts so you can head there if you want speed.

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

Firefight Doubles is where you should be. Grab a friend and start focusing fire on what you need to kill. It's not a one game thing so go ahead and take it slowly. Putting a few extra Waves on that weekly won't hurt.

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

Easily done actually. Find a nice spot filled with enemies (The first large encampment is rather nice) unleash your ammo on the Covenant and the revert to last saved. Repeat till challenge completed.

This is My Rifle... - Earn 40 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1300cR

SWAT & Snipers are good here, but any game where you can get a Needle Rifle, DMR, Sniper or Focus Rifle will suit your needs.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/06/2011

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

4 games of Scoreattack will give this to you or a few Firefights, depending on how in the action you are. Either way, a nice little boost to your weekly challenge cR.

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

Assists are harder to come by in Firefight. Best thing to do is team up in Firefight doubles and work together. Call out targets and focus on what needs to be done.

The Little Guys - Kill 125 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1000cR

Grunt heavy levels: ONI, Winter, Exodus. These levels will fill it up rather quickly and remember to revert to last saved if you find a very big group.

Put Your Quarter Up - Complete 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1600cR

After all of last weeks MP, if you still want to go in and just finish games, go for it. Just don't AFK.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/06/2011

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

Any, who, what and when way. Easy stuff, 1 game of Scoreattack will do it for you.

T-Hug It Out - Kill 4 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Shotgun & Melee weapons are what you want. Shotty Snipers, Shotgun Assault & HaloBall Extreme in Action Sack and Grifball in the Community section are all very good games here. Living Dead also.

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

Outlook has a Banshee every once in a while and Beachhead likes to drop off a Wraith or two. Best chances of finding vehicles to destroy is to stick it on regular Firefight and wait to see what comes your way. Also, the faster you destroy it, the more likely there will be a new one next round to destroy,

Deathless Spear - Complete Tip of the Spear on Legendary without dying - 1800cR

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 20/06/2011 Ride the Wave

Ride the Wave

Complete 150 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking


Scoreattack = 5 waves
Firefight = 15 Waves

5 waves in a Round
3 Rounds in a Set

Just a bit of maths for you. It takes about 10-15 minutes to complete a Firefight game so It wouldn't surprise me if this challenge is done quickly. Rounds involving power weapons, Hammers, Swords, Rockets, Fuel Rods and so forth, usually take a very short time. So yeah, have fun with this.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/06/2011

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

Rather simple challenge, though you'll want to try and play overlook. Best way to do that is to enter Scoreattack and keep selecting none of the above till it eventually arrives. From there, just pick gametypes and keep driving away the covenant.

The Love of the Game – Complete 17 games in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1850 cR

If you've been doing the weekly, you know exactly what this is asking. Start game, play game, finish game. Nothing else.

Overlook’s Overwatch – Kill 1000 enemies on Overlook in Firefight Matchmaking – 3000 cR

This was why I said Overwatch in the first challenge. Just keep Scoreattacking till you get the map and then kill them all. It's certainly going to be a long day.

The Little Guys – Kill 125 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder – 1000 cR

Grunt heavy levels, Winter Contingency, Exodus, ONI. Just keep picking away at them till you've killed enough.
