Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/07/2011

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

100 in any game mode. Do the other challenges and mop up any remaining kills with some Firefight or campaign.

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

When only one is needed, just use some Sprint, Evade or Camo and keep above your enemy. Objective games are good as people ted to loose motion trackers and move slower when carrying objectives.

Sticky Icky Icky – Earn 5 sticky grenade kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1400cR

Invasion has the nice amount of Grenades and the nice round lengths.

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

Stay and Play.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/07/2011

Happy Brony Appreciation Day!... Or whatever.

More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Only slightly. Simple as always, 1-3 games of most gametypes will get you this. Not a challenge to aim for, just one that will come by playing multiplayer. Aim for other challenges and this one will just come.

Close Talking – Earn 20 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking – 1000 cR

Grifball is Hammers, Swords and your own fist. Doesn't get much close than that. Living Dead adds a shotgun so mix these games together and you'll be fine.

Neuroscience – Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1200 cR

Gametypes that focus on the headshots are SWAT & Snipers. SWAT has some nice objective gametypes that can create a longer game that isn't limited by kills so that can come in handy. If you're still having some trouble, try playing some invasion. Double length rounds and usually a headshot weapon in a loadout somewhere.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution – Earn 7 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 1400 cR

Explosives. Grenade Launcher (Boom Ball), Concussion Rifle (Dino Blasters), Rockets & Splasers (Splockets) all these games are found in Action Sack, so I'd say start there.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/07/2011

Firefight time.

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

A couple of games of Scoreattack x2 will get you this and looking at the challenges, that may be all you need to get all these challenges.

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

7 Multikills is a very, very easy task. A grenade here, a few headshot there. A power weapon or two. Gruntpocolypse is easy enough but if you're sticking with Scoreattack x2, you can get this easily on the first wave against the Grunts anyway.

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol - 1250cR

Once again that Gruntpocolypse can be useful. Pisol against Brutes, & Elites can be troublesome, and that's why you have 2 games to do this in. Seriously though, the pistol is as powerful as a DMR, just less accurate.

Survivor - Earn 7 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Killing Sprees at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100 (6 right there) and weapons ones at 5, 10 & 15. Weapons such as Sniper, Shotgun, Splatter, Splaser, Sticky, Sword, Hammer. Whatever's your pick.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/07/2011

There's quite a few cR to pick up today.

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2750cR

A fair few to be getting mid week. Any who, best gametypes are chaotic objective based games. Actionsack can help but it also has games like Hockey. Grifball is once again a good game. Anything from 0 kills to 75+. Last good one to try out is Multi-Team, King of the hill if possible, those games are crazy.

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

Once again not too challenging. Will probably take a couple of games but I'd stay with Gruntpocolypse as always with this challenge. The Grunts fall rather easily when a DMR bullet goes through their head and it's rather easy to get that shot too.

Points Pyramid - Score 100,000 points on any Campaign mission - 3000cR

Fastest way to get this one, Long Night of Solace, Rally Point Alpha, LASO. Blackeye has no effect at this point so you can run and hide to get a quick boost to your health. Best thing to do is start the mission and get behind where the Banshees appear, then, destroy them with a quick burst of Machine gun.

The Magic Number - Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1350cR

Just complete them, the easiest challenge today.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/07/2011

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

As you need to kill 200 enemies with a pistol, this one will just come with that. If you're looking for just this challenge (For some weird reason) a Single Game of Scoreattack x2 will suit your needs just fine.

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

However, Grunts and a nice amount of pistol ammo might suit this one much better. Gruntpocolypse is where you need to be. Just stick to an ammo crate to keep your pistol full. Any armour ability you want.

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

If you're doing the weekly today, you're set. If not,Normal + Thunderstorm = not as hard as Heroic. You can also die as many times as you need so there's no fear of failure. Blast through Nighfall if you want. By now it's possible to do it Blindfolded... If you do do it blindfolded, I'll give you a cookie.

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

Stay in a game and win. Play games that have a higher win/loss rate than Draw. So stay away from Objective games and Invasion. That is unless you have a very good team to back you up.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/07/2011

More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

A couple of games of anything should get you here. It may take 3 or possibly 4 depending on the game type. Multi-Team and Grifball would give you a nice boost though. If you're feeling lucky, why not try coming out on top in a Rumble pit game. That'll give you everything you need.

Throwing Fireballs - Kill 2 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Grenade Spam away. Always a good idea to jump into Rumble pit or Multi-Team and see if you cant find a bunch of people fighting and then use your grenades to finish them off. The grenades are rather powerful, remember that.

The Little Guys - Kill 135 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1200cR

Grunt heavy levels are Winter Contingency, ONI and Exodus (Oh boy). If you're going for the weekly, You'll take a rather big chunk out I can tell you that. Otherwise, just find a large grouping and revert to saved once they're wiped out.

A Solid Outing - Earn at least 13 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1400cR

Rumblepit, Multi-Team and objective games will work well here. It's not impossible to get this from a simple slayer game.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 11/07/2011 Exodus: LASO

Exodus: LASO

Complete Exodus, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO)


Oh... Well I hope you weren't expecting anything new.

Through most of the beginning you've only got Grunts. A couple of Jackals show up too but nothing your pistol and headshots can't handle. As per usual though, heading you right on over to

They know what they're talking about. Usually I just like to play co-op with my usual partner and just take a hammer to it. We eventually finish it.

If I remember, last time it didn't take too long thanks to Jet pack shortcuts.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/07/2011

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

Simple as always. Any game mode so Custom Firefights are good, as always it's best to leave it till the end of the other challenges.

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

Snipers & SWAT are good quick games. Anything with DMR spawns work well though. Not all in one game so take your time.

Killagruntjaro! - Earn 10 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1100cR

10, easy stuff. Grenades in groups will help and Headshots in groups of Grunts will help too. So in a nutshell, Gruntpocolypse. On Corvette is possible.

A Side of Huevos - Kill 60 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal - 1500cR

Start the mission, get to a large group of enemies, use your ammo up to kill a bunch and then revert to last saved. Rinse, Repeat.
