Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/07/2011

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

Just go out there and play. Scoreattack x2 is great for solo, other than that, general Firefight is rather useful.

Came From Behind - Perform 3 Assassinations in a multiplayer Matchmaking game -1200cR

Objective games work well again. When people carry the objective they are usually, slower and have no motion tracker. User armour abilities such as, Sprint, Evade or Active Camo to your advantage.

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

Grunts go down easily enough, but then again, anything does when a bullet goes through the head. Gruntpocolypse for speed but if you're still working on that weekly, go through Firefight a bit and get a leg up.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2500cR

Just stay and play what you like and/or are good at. Once you've done that, not much else to say. Having good people on your team helps too.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/07/2011

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

A couple of games of... Whatever you want really. provided killing is included in the package, shouldn't take you that long.

Close Talking - Earn 100 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

Grifball & Living Dead are good games here. Fast paced actions with many many multikills. Weapons of choice are Shotguns, Swords, Hammers and your own fist/bomb/skull/flag. So start clubbing your fellow man.

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

See above challenge for exact same response.

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

See above answer. Don't do that. best shot here is for games that use a lot of Precision weapons. Invasion, SWAT & Snipers are where you want to be. SWAT & Snipers may leave you a bit short changed if you're mainly an objective person but that's where invasion comes in. Long game times with lots of time to kill with a DMR, Needle Rifle, Sniper or Focus Rifle.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/07/2011

Firefight Thursday, a good day to get some rounds put away and get a boost on that weekly challenge.

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

Simple to begin with. Just enter some Firefight or Scoreattack and kill. 1 or 2 games should suffice.

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

ArcadeFight brings with it a rather large amount of Vehicles it appears. The Larger maps such as Beachhead can drop a couple of vehicles per round. You just got to make sure you can get in quickly and destroy them before your friends do. Snipers work very well in this matter.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Killing spree, 10 kills. Weapon spree 5 kills. Firefight, 100+ enemies. Do you really need help?

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 200 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking - 1500cR

DMRs and Snipers are useful here and pistols to a certain extent. Once again, one of the loadouts will have what you need, just pick and start shooting. I would say Gruntpocolyse would be the quickest way, but I also suggest it as a supplementary tactic after the other challenges have been completed.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/07/2011

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

100, a single game of Scoreattack will work here. As per usual, if you're going for other challenges, leave this one till the end.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

Scoreattack x2 will give you many Elites, If you're playing with others in Firefight, the best advice I can give is to just play Arcade Fight. You usually get a couple of Heretic rounds and the final waves of Round 1 & 3 are Elites. You just got to beat your Allies to the kills.

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

The best way to do this, follow the LASO guide, or, get a friend to run ahead and kill everything while you play respawn bitch. I did it Co-op with myself and somehow managed to survive.

Not as Clumsy or Random... - Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Snipers & SWAT are what you need. Easy kills, if you need an extra minute or two, try some Invasion.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/07/2011

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

Simple as usual. A couple of Scoreattacks and probably a couple of Firefights too. A nice simple one achieved by just playing.

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

Killing Sprees (10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100, Not much chance of getting the next one up) Then weapons ones at 5, 10 & 15. If you can get Arcade Fight, you can get Snipers, Shotguns & Swords which give you 9 in total for those weapons, then any you can get from the map (Wheelman, Splatter, Sticky etc.)

Pod Kettle Black - Kill 20 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace - 1200cR

Long Night from Rally Point Alpha. From there, fight through till you get to the Corvette, then focus on the blue bolts the ship fires towards the planet. The machine guns make light work of the pods that launch 3 at a time.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em! - Kill 15 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing - 1800cR

Power Weapons work here. Games such as Dino Blasters and Splockets work very well here. Stick to Action Sack.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 18/07/2011 Like a Record, Baby

Like a Record, Baby

Complete 75 Rounds in Firefight Matchmaking


Well, this is... challenging?

Well O.K. Not really. To be honest, this is rather basic just rather long. You get 3 rounds in Firefight 1 in Scoreattack. Firefight games such as Arcadefight, Rocket Fight and others with Unlimited ammo and Power weapons usually last 10-15 mins depending on the map size (Smaller is faster).

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/07/2011

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

Any game mode once again. Well, with the Firefight you need to play to get 75 grenade kills, This one should come easily. Custom Firefight will get you this rather quickly too.

Came From Behind - Perform 2 Assassinations in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1100cR

Objective games are where you want to be. When someone is holding a Flag/Bomb/Oddball, they usually move slower and lose their motion tracker. This enables you to easily get the drop on them. Use Sprint/Evade to catch up on them quickly, or use and wait for them to pass you. Do it twice and get the challenge. Invasion can help with the long game time (Boneyard more so with the place to hide above the enemy)

Blast Radius - Kill 75 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades - 1250cR

corvette works well with the Monster rooms where the enemy spawn. Throw grenades in there to get 5/6 kills instantly. Other than that, find groups and pick up plasmas regularly. Also, if you shoot a grenade on the floor and it kills an enemy, that also counts as a grenade kill.

Mostly at Night - Complete Nightfall on Legendary without dying - 1700cR

No much cR, but not much time is needed to complete this. I'm sure you all know of the Nightfall speed run method by now. If not, google/youtube it. The mission lasts 5 mins and you only need 1 clip of Sniper.

Gruntpocolypse gives you DMR, Pistol and 1 hit kill Grunts (Provided you hit the min the head. Will require a couple of games so you'll end up killing 240ish Grunts. Leaves some room for error.
