Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/08/2011

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

A single game of Scoreattack x2 on any map of your choice will get you this. That is provided you finish is. If you fall short, do another game.

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

Hammers, Swords, Shotguns and any other weapon that you can directly hit an enemy with work well here. Grifball & Living Dead are very good here as they are mostly only these weapons. It only being 4 kills though, any game mode can get you this really.

Eyes in the Sky - Kill 10 enemies with the Designator in ONI on Heroic - 1000cR

Avoid using the Designator on the Wraiths, the are around the gun (To the right) is loaded with enemies and if you can hit them as they're just coming off the drop ship, you can easily get a good 5+ plus.

Participation Counts - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1200cR

Get to the end of a game without Rage Quitting. Simple enough right?

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/08/2011

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2750cR

A slow but steady challenge. Simple enough to get, just keep on playing till you're done. Challenges today should help boost this one anyway.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em! - Kill 5 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing - 1000cR

Not in one game, so there you go. Best game is Dino Blasters. Everyone has jet-packs with unlimited use. So there's little excuse to not hold down the equipment button. Dino Blasters is found under action sack, so have fun.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 7 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1400cR

Grifball, Living Dead and Multi-Team are the games for this. Carnage everywhere. Living Dead & Grifball both have the weak enemies thing going for it too. So enjoy.

Foggy Notion - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Cloud and Famine on - 1500cR

Can you die, Yes. Is it Legendary, No. Minimal challenge then. You have less ammo and you don't have a Motion Detector, no big deal. Just run through Nightfall.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/08/2011

It's a long day for challenges.

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

Killing stuff in Firefight, if you've been doing the weekly, you've been doing this already. Just enter Firefight and kill stuff. Not the most challenging one today by far.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR
A Walk in the... - Kill 1000 enemies on Beachhead in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

In my opinion, the best course of action is to combine these two together. Grab a partner, a friend if you will, and enter Firefight Doubles. Get yourself into some ArcadeFight. This will give you 1 Vehicle per round and about 300 enemies to split between you.

The other option is to go through Scoreattack by yourself, playing 8 games on Beachhead and not getting many vehicles and then jump into Doubles and steal as many Vehicle kills as you can get. This is where all your time will be going today.

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

Needle Rifles, Pistols, DMRs and Snipers are your weapons of choice. Aim for the head and put a bullet in it. Gruntpocolypse works well, but I think as with most of the other challenges, you'll just want to combine it with your regular playing. Jst try to have one of those weapons at all times.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/08/2011

Gunslinger – Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking – 2750 cR

Multiplayer games that have a bunch of killing involved works well. Grifball, Multi-Team, even invasion works well if you play it right. Up to you how you fully tackle this one.

Heroic Spelunking – Kill 125 enemies in Glacier on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking – 1100 cR

Keep on choosing the next map till you get this one. Not much more to add. Scoreattack x2 if you can.

L.D. Spear – Complete Tip of the Spear, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt and Tough Luck on – 5000 cR

I have my own Walk-through for that. One of the few I actually did.

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

If you need help with this, I wouldn't even know where to start.

Yeah, sorry for the quick replies but there's not that complicated, plus I'm busy for once.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/08/2011

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

The any game mode tag appears once again. So enjoy your Firefight/Campaign/Matchmaking. Go for the other challenges to get this one.

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

Headshots work well, especially against lightly armoured foes (Grunts, Jackals and Skirmishers) so just go with it.

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

Exodus, Winter Contingency & ONI are all nicely laden with Grunts. Not really sure you need much help that that.

Close Talking - Earn 77 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1400cR

Hammers, Shotguns, Swords, Flags, Bombs, Skulls and your own fist are all very good weapons here. Living Dead, Grifball, Shotgun Assault are all good gametypes for this challenge.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 08/08/2011

Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1200cR

Simple as always to start off. 40 enemies in any gametype you enjoy. Grifball and Multi-Team for the quick kills is what I've often found but you can go and play whatever.

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

I'm sure you'll get most of this through Firefight. But with the "Any Game Mode" tag, I don't think it'll cause too much trouble. Firefight, Campaign, Multiplayer or even custom games will work for you.

Heroic Overwatch - Kill 100 enemies on Overlook on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Scoreattack is your best shot at getting the map, keep choosing none of the above till you get it, then pick a game mode. Though with all the Firefight you'll be doing, I think this map has a fairly high chance of appearing at least once.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Like the first challenge, best places to get it, Grifball & Multi-Team. Carnage always works which is why I'm also adding Living Dead to the gametypes of choice. 2 Double kills isn't overly hard tough, those 4 seconds don't go as quick as you think.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 08/08/2011 Ride the Wave

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts

Complete 150 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking


We ad this one back in June and not too long after, The Round based one in July.

Scoreattack = 5 waves
Firefight = 15 Waves

The bonus round does not count. This challenge really doesn't take that long. I did it in 2 days but it's easily doable in just 1. I would say that (Depending on the gametype) each wave takes on average, 1 min. So around 2 and a half hours of Firefight matchmaking and you're set.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/08/2011

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

Get yourself into a Scoreattack x2 and you can get this done in one go. Other than that, it's just killing in a Firefight/Scoreattack game. If you can navigate the menus, get on XBL and play the game, you're all set.

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

Just enter Multiplayer and get to the end of a game. It's hard for some but stick with it 20 times and you'll get some cR for your troubles. This will be a nice bonus to those who still need to get the final games for the weekly challenge.

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

Another one where it's a case of playing it safe. Use range to your advantage ans equipment such as the drop shield, Sprint, Evade & Jet pack to keep yourself out of harms way. Combine with the top challenge if you can, if not, you can always fight off some grunts.

Leadership Element - Kill 30 enemy leaders in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Elites are where your cross-hair should be pointed at. They are generally the leaders and as such, Long Night of Solace & Nightfall are very good levels. You can also try lone wolf if you want. That's mostly Elites.
