Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/07/2011

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

Any game mode. Do what you will, finish up the daily challenges and then some Firefight? Up to you.

Up Close and Personal - Kill 5 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1100cR

Like yesterday, only more. Still sticking with my Grifball/Living Dead gametypes for this. The weapons fit rather nicely.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 3 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1250cR

Elite Slayer works well if you can get the gametype, for all other times, there's Invasion. The elites like to spawn with them so aim well.

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

Just play. Win if you can, that helps.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/07/2011

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

Over the whole of today that shouldn't be to hard. A couple of games should be fine, I don't see many more than 4, though it can depend on the gametype.

This is My Rifle... - Earn 30 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1250cR

DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle & the Focus Rife are the weapons that you want to get your hands on. SWAT & Snipers are good as the contain DMRs & Snipers with infinite ammo. As it's not in one game, you can do this in any game just by taking your time.

Light Fuse, Run Away - Kill 4 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

As this one needs to be done in one game, the longer the game the better. Objective ones also work as you know where the enemy will be. No exactly but that's what splash damage is for.

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

Punch them. That's the gist of it. Games like Grifall (No non Close Combat weapons) and Living Dead (Shotguns and swords) are practically begging to be played for this challenge.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/07/2011

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

Just enter some Firefight and kill the enemies that are within. Other than that, not much to say. Bit of Scoreattack, Bit of Firefight to help with the other challenges.

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

Bit of a measly reward for such a large amount. The Vehicles don't come around too often. If you play ArcadeFight, you're likely to get one a round no matter what map (Not too sure about courtyard though, avoid that if possible) and if you go into Doubles, it's only 2 of you, not 4 fighting for the kill. Remember, the bigger the map, the better.

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

Some Gruntpocolypse goes well here, but most games give you extra damage resistance and output, so you can get this one in stages while working on the others... by others I mean Flat Tire.

More Like In Post - Kill 1000 enemies on Outpost in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

To get this map, you'll want to play some Scoreattack, Firefight won't always give you this map, you only get a couple of Vetos. That does cause problems with the Flat Tire challenge though as Scoreattack is less likely to give you vehicles, Banshees at best.

Between killing 1000 enemies (8ish games) and Flat Tire (4 games if you're lucky more than 10 if you're not. This will be a long day.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/07/2011

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

Starting simple as always. Rare when we don't get a challenge like this. So yeah, any game mode so as always, work your way through the other challenges and then finish this one up with some custom Firefight or something lighter depending on how much you have left.

Demon – Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking – 1400cR

Regular Firefight has a nice splash of Elites. Best way to get then though would be to play Scoreattack Doubles and play some ArcadeFight. That gives you the full 3 rounds with only 2 of you, so more Elites to go around. If you'd rather go into this solo, Scoreattack x2 in normal Scoreattack will work just as well, possibly better. Depends if you're playing doubles with a trustworthy friend or some dick (who may or may not also be your friend).

Nature vs. Nurture – Kill 15 Moa in Winter Contingency on Normal or harder – 2000cR

Kill the ones at the beginning of the mission, then try reverting to last saved. if you can get it that way, easy stuff. If not, just before you get in the Trucks there are quite a few (where the massive pile of Elites are) and then once again while driving the trucks.

Killing Frenzy – Earn a Killing Frenzy in a multiplayer Matchmaking game – 2000cR

Can be a bit of a hard one, well for people like me who enjoy charging in with grenades, assault rifles and your own fists, can't stand that long range stuff, not enough carnage. Games like Living Dead though can benefit from this. Hold out and pick them all off from range and when they get close, you have a shotgun. Best tactic is to stay back and guard an objective from range. 10 kills without being killed, good luck.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/07/2011

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

Simple stuff once again. 100 in any game mode, if you're still working through the weekly, there's a bit for you. If you're workign on the daily challenges, just see 1 below.

Watersports - Kill 100 enemies on Waterfront on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Well as Heroic is the default setting, shouldn't be too hard. A Scoreattack will give you around 115-125 enemies to kill depending on the game mode. So pick something easy when you eventually get to this map.

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

If you need help with this, go look in the Bungie forums. There's an achievement linked to this too I think.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 5 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Grifball, Multi-Team, Living Dead, all very chaotic and fun. So play that and you'll get this challenge easily.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/07/2011

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

Nice and simple. Many other challenges today require you to kill more. Minimal of 325 for all the others. So yeah, kill stuff.

More than a Handful - Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2500cR

Just keep killing to you reach the required amount. Fast ways to kill are Multi-Team and Grifball. So much carnage to be had.

There Are Many Like... - Kill 200 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today - 1500cR

Just grab yourself a DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle or Focus Rifle and let loose. ONI & Nightfall are the best 2 levels I can think of.

Credits for Completion - Complete 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1250cR

Play and stay. Rather easy if you ask me.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 25/07/2011 This Is How We Do It

This Is How We Do It

Complete 9 Campaign missions on Heroic


This was the first Halo Reach Weekly Challenge that was posted. Coming in a number 46 though is a bit of a disappointment. Rather basic though. There's no special requirements, You can die, No Skulls, No time limit and if it's the same as last time we had one of these challenges, you can do the same mission over and over rather than running through the entire campaign. So cutting this whole thing down into 1 hour.

Go through co-op or solo, it makes no difference from what I can tell so just enjoy the campaign.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/07/2011

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

Go for the other challenges as normal. They require you to do some Firefight and some Matchmaking so this one will probably be done doing those ones. Other than that, 1 game of Firefight/Scoreattack will get you this and if not, you'll be very very close.

The T.G. Opposition - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun - 1000cR

Spawn with shotgun and let them come to you. Scoreattack x2 and ArcadeFights both work very well with the shotgun. You do extra damage and can take extra damage. Provided you don't just walk into the middle of a group of Elites, you should be fine.

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

DMR, Pistol, Sniper, Needle Rifle. These are the guns you want. Gruntpocolypse will be a nice place to start if you're just going after this. Otherwise, Gruntpocolypse is a good place to finish off with once you've done the other challenges.

Headshot Honcho - Kill 9 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1080cR

SWAT, Snipers or Invasion. All these games give you headshot capable weapons. SWAT has some Objective gametypes to help with kill limits and invasion is the same.
