Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/07/2011

If you're looking for an easy way to get the weekly challenge, Today is a good day to do. If you haven't got it, you've only got today & tomorrow so I'd suggest today, just in case tomorrow is evil.

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

A nice simple challenge. Any game mode so it's a nice day to just get on with the Multiplayer challenges and finish off if you need, with a bit of Firefight, be it custom or matchmaking.

Up Close and Personal - Kill 3 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Close Talking - Earn 40 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1300cR

Same tactics for both of these. Gametypes where it's practically exclusive Close combat weapons are Living Dead (Pistol the odd one out), Shotgun Assault and Grifball. Grifball is where I'd place everything today. If you want to mix it up a bit, Shotgun, Hammer, Sword and Melee kills are the ways you can go.

Credits for Completion - Complete 6 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1300cR

Just sit, play and stay. Also, Don't AFK.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 08/07/2011

Hope you enjoyed your Reach experience yesterday. Anyone here win any Steak?

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

Fastest way is for you to enter Firefight, be it custom or Match made. Though there are a few Multiplayer challenges today, so you might be able to whittle down the amount you need to kill.

A Great Friend – Earn 30 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2250cR

A rather large amount, don't think we've had one this big before today. Either way, it still stands with me that Invasion is the best way to get this. Plasma Pistols or Melees for shield popping, then your friend can finish them off with a quick shot to the head, or another punch. May take some time this one.

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

A double is worth 1, a Triple Kill on top of that is worth another one. So always push for that extra kill. One hit kill weapons (power weapons) such as Shotgun, Sword, Hammer, Rockets, Sniper and lots of grenades will work nicely. Gametypes that work well are Living Dead, Multi-Team and Grifball. Chaos and weakened enemies always works well.

Sticky Icky Icky – Earn 4 sticky grenade kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1300cR

Again I'd say Elite slayer or Invasion. Always good to have a steady supply of Blue balls.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/07/2011

Happy Bungie Day. How many of you are attempting to get a Steak today?

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

Simple and easy stuff. A game of Scoreattack x2 will get you it in one and the extra Elites it drops off will help with other challenges.

On the Sixth Respawn... - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game with fewer than 5 deaths - 2000cR

Just play it smart. Most enemies use close range weapons. Plasma Pistols, Needlers, Spikers. The only weapons that pose a threat at range are the Needle Rifle and Focus Rifle, with a splattering of Fuel Rod every once in a while. So take a DMR and fight at range.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

A couple of Scoreattack x2 games will work nicely here.

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

Of all the challenges there have been, there are challenges that take longer and are more challenging, but none have ever felt like such a grind, like this one. The vehicles are only moderately predictable. Holdout has a Banshee you can blow up but other large maps such as Outlook & Beachhead with get a vehicle to blow up every blue moon. Other maps barely get any. They are more common in Firefight but you've also got a 1/4 of the chance of blowing it up. If you can grab some friends, this challenge will go by much better.

I have been told by Shannon that if you can get Sniperattack on Hold out, it only takes 2/3 shots to take down a Banshee and also adds to my earlier assumptions that they are set on a timer. So the longer the game, the more Banshees.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 06/07/2011

One more day till Bungie Day. I hope you'll all be attempting to get a Steak from the Bungie Guys, I know I will be.

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

All you need to do is kill in Matchmaking. I'm certain you don't need help in that respect. Good gametypes are Multi-Team, Grifball and a whole bunch of stuff in Action Sack.

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol - 1000cR

Just had this one, I sure of it. Anyway. Gruntpocolypse gives you a pistol and Grunts. Stick by a supply crate to replenish ammo and you're good to go.

Pod Kettle Black - Kill 10 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace - 1000cR

Bit of an odd one but still easy. On Long Night, Start from Rally Point Alpha and fight your way through the first waves of enemies. Now when you come up to the Corvette, you'll notice that, from the bottom of the ship, Blue projectiles are launched. These are Drop pods. The easiest way to kill them is to follow their trajectory from right behind them and use the Machine gun to destroy them. They usually release 3 at a time from each area where they go from so it shouldn't be too hard.

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

SWAT, Snipers and invasion give you many ways to get this challenge. SWAT Objective & Invasion give you all the time you need if you're falling short in regular slayer games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 05/07/2011

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

3-4 games of Firefight/Scoreattack should give you everything you need. Just focus on the killing you'll be fine. Not really much else I can say.

The T.G. Opposition - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun - 1450cR

Grunts, Brutes and most Jackals are where the Shotgun will be most effective. That's not to say it's not effective against Skirmishers or Elites but they'll take a bit more to kill.

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

Load a clip up, record, auto name and save, exit, hover over new clip, press x, upload to file share. Done.

Un, Deux, Trois - Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1450cR

Win 3 games. Not much else here, not much else to elaborate on.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 04/07/2011

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

A couple of games is all you need. Challenge level, very low. Though once again, it's a case of, leaving this one be until the others are completed, you'll be killing a minimal of 150 anyway.

Be Their Huckleberry – Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Pistol – 1000cR

The Pistol can also get headshots, remember that it's important for later. Now, as for getting this challenge, I'd suggest some Gruntpocolypse, 1 shot to the head and they'll be falling.

Hyper Lethal Vector – Kill 150 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking – 1125cR

I told you to remember about that pistol. Anyway, god weapons for headshots that you spawn with, DMR 7 Pistol, once again, Gruntpocolypse.

Storm’s Comin’ – Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with Mythic and Thunderstorm on – 1750cR

Can you die, yes. Heroic, Mystic & Thunderstorm put this level difficulty a tad more that Legendary on the offence but you can still take as much damage as heroic. So not all that challenging in the end. Enjoy blasting through Nightfall.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 04/07/2011 Your Daily Dose

Your Daily Dose

Complete all of the Daily Challenges for a given day


Well I guess the reward is appropriate. On the 7th, Bungie hand over most control of Halo Reach to 343 Ind, at least that's what I believe, I tend to not think about it.

As such, they're left us with a rather easy challenge. To do this, look at the daily challenges and see how easy they are. I'm going to try and go for a 100% completion. So yeah, stick around for the daily explanations and see how they look.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 03/07/2011

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

Any game mode once again, so go ahead and enjoy the other challenges then come back to this one at the end.

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal - 1500cR

There's a rather nice of Rocket Launchers on this mission. One right before you get the Jet-pack (There is also a very nice collection of Grunts shortly after which you can revert to saved a lot against) and the second one is right before the climb to the Improvised Helipad and from there you can kill a good 6/7 Grunts with a Rocket Launcher and Get a Fuel Rod or 2. Normal weapons & Grenades also work, but it's always easier with a big bang.

Points, Points - Score 20,000 points in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1750cR

Most Scoreattack game modes will give you this. Gruntpocolypse would be a major push, but Sniper attack will get it just about. I do believe Scoreattack x2 will get it nicely, but to be safe, Firefight games will set you on the right track.

Just a Shower - Complete any Campaign mission on Normal or harder with Thunderstorm on - 2000cR

Can you die, yes. This is a little compromise between Normal & Heroic, so just keep pushing forwards because in all honesty, there's no challenge here.
