Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/08/2011

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

Any game mode. Any of them, so Firefight if you're still on the weekly or the rest of the challenges today if you're going for a full 100% challenge completion.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Grenade launchers, Concussion Rifles, Fuel Rods, Rockets. The usual stuff that goes boom. These are a few of my favourite things and thing's you'll need for this challenge. Action Sack is where you want to stick. Many gametypes have weapons like this as standard.

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

Aim at the gun area when troops are dropped off (Ignoring the Wraiths) and knock them flying. Then pick off the rest when it recharges.

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

Brute force, that's how I say it works. You can die several times and it'll make no difference. So pick a mission (Nightfall) and do it as you normally would.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/08/2011

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

Rather simple, although most of the challenges today revolve around Multiplayer and are rather simply done. For this you can crack on with some weekly challenge Firefight, or if you're done with that, stick on some speedy custom Firefight. That usually gets it out of the way quickly.

I'm Rubber, You're Glue - Earn 1 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

A single Plasma Grenade stick isn't that hard. Gametypes that involve Elites are good as that guarantees Plasma Grenades somewhere. Invasion, Elite Slayer, Dino Blasters are gametypes where the Elites are. Normal games still have Plasmas but at a much smaller amount.

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

One of the tougher gametypes. Games such as SWAT and Snipers rely on headshots more than other games, but the limit of kills or style of game doesn't go well for everyone. Games like Invasion give Humans a Pistol or DMR at all times and Elites a Needle Rifle from the second set onwards. Go for kills, let the games go on a bit longer than normal.

The Dream Shake - Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Carnage is what you want. Multi-Team, Grifball, Living Dead; These are the good gametypes you want. These will give you many Multi-Kills but you ant to stick to doubles if possible. It's doable in any gametype really, just easier in some.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/08/2011

If you're still working on the weekly challenge this is the day for you.

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

Just killing in any Firefight game on any map is rather easy. Just, as always, go for the other challenges and this one will come rather easily.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

As always it's getting to the Elites before your friends do. If you need to get a little boost, Scoreattack x2 is always good to play. There are 20+ Elites for you and you alone to kill. Just watch out for the invisible ones with the swords.

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

Killing Sprees: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, 200.
Special Sprees: 5, 10, 15.
Specials of note: Shotgun, Sniper, Hammer, Sword, Plasma Grenades, Assist, Wheel man, Splatter.

A Heroic Breach - Kill 150 enemies on Corvette on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

Just pick the map in Scoreattack\Firefight and start killing.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 17/08/2011

Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1100cR

Back in October last year we had to get 30 kills in one game. I remember struggling with that one. The way around it was Multi-Team. This challenge is much easier as you don't need to get them all in one game. So just play matchmaking in games where you kill a lot.

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

Arcadefight lots of Fire-power, a Keen eye to spot the vehicles first and the luck to kill before your team does. Arcadefight in Firefight doubles gives you a 50/50 chance rather than your 25/25/25/25 in Firefight.

Linked Up with - Link your gamertag with and play a game in Halo: Reach Matchmaking - 3000cR

Go to the, log in with the same e-mail as your Xbox live account and then you're done. It's a free 3000cR, just do it.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 40 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1300cR

Needler, Assault Rifle, Plasma Repeater. These are all weapons that are easily accessible in Invasion and Elite Slayer. So stick to that area for quick results.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/08/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

A single completed game of Scoreattack will get you this. As for Firefight, might take you 1 game, could take 5. It all depends on the gametype and how well your skill & Luck lines up with the rest of your team.

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

Pistols to the head, rather easy. Though if you're playing n Firefight, you'll have to get those before your friends put a well placed Rocket/Fuel Rod/Grenade where you were aiming. Not impossible, though it might take a whole game to get.

There Are Many Like... - Kill 100 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today - 1000cR

ONI & Nightfall are where the Precision Weapons are. Find a nice spot and unleash hell upon them. After doing so, revert to last saved and do it all over again. Best done where there are large groups.

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

Just get to the end of the game. Not overly hard and if it is and has nothing to do with the quality of your net and is down to your ability to not want to lose, do whatever you want, I don't care for you.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/08/2011

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

Popping this one at the top as it's the only Matchmaking challenge and the rest are Firefight. Shotguns, Swords, Hammers and anything else you can use to bludgeon
your opponent with at close range works here. Grifball is 100% close combat (Ignoring the bomb explosion) so once again my money is here.

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

Kill stuff in Firefight. Other than that, not much more explanation needed. Just stop sitting about AFKing.

Survivor - Earn 5 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Special Sprees (Sticky, Hammer, Sword, Shotgun, Sniper, Wheel-man, Assist, Splatter etc.) come at 5, 10 & 15. Killing Sprees come at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100 & 200 (If you reach 200) 20 kills with a sniper for example will get you this challenge.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1400cR

Shoot the Elites or make them explode to kill them. Scoreattack x2 works well if you're short on Elite kills and need a boost.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 15/08/2011 Ride the Wave

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts

Complete 150 Waves in Firefight Matchmaking


Well, this one appears to be rather popular. The challenges have been reset so it does look like this is the challenge.

Scoreattack = 5 waves
Firefight = 16 Waves

So yeah, remember last week. Do it again. All you need to do is blast through Firefight games with some explosives on small maps and you'll be done in no time. If you do 3 Firefights a day, you'll be short by 6 Waves. Finish those off however you will.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/08/2011

Thousands all round.

One Spartan Army - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

A single game of scoreattack will get you this, although it's also rather likely to happen while getting flat tire.

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

Arcadefight on the larger maps, such as Beachhead and Unearthed, will give you 1 vehicle per round. Enter some Firefight doubles and find the vehicle before your ally does.

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

Just choose the shotgun loadout and kill those Grunts, Brutes & Elites with it (Skirmishers & Jackles are a bugger to kill with a shotgun). Can't really say much more.

A Side of Huevos - Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal - 1000cR

Find a large group, line up, fire your ammo away into their heads, revert to last saved. Have fun.
