Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/08/2011

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

Any game mode. So get on with the challenges today (all very multiplayer based) and then finish off by adding some revenge kills to your weekly. Done with the weekly? Some Firefight will top off what you need.

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

The Double Double Double is a fairly easy challenge, Double kills are easy to get in any game mode provided you can get the jump on them or have a good weapon (Even a grenade into a group helps well) though if you are occasionally left short by the kill limit, try something objective based. Invasion has a good length of time. Some gametypes lend themselves better too, Grifball, about 90% of the gametypes in Actionsack, Multi-Team & Living Dead.

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

Games where Plasma Grenades are in high supply are, Elite Slayer & Invasion (Games with Elites). Stick to these if you want the best chance of the challenge.

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

Play and win. Not much I can say to assist you really.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/08/2011

More than a Handful - Kill 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2310cR

That's certainly an odd number of cR to reward us with. Once again though, very simple, it's just killing in multiplayer. something I'm sure many of you have been doing all week.

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

Not impossible but does require a bit of skill. Armour abilities will be essential. Sprint & Evade are perfect for quickly getting behind an enemy before they can react. Camo will be good for waiting. Know an enemy is coming, cloak up and let them pass, once they're past you, quickly hit them in the back.

The other important feature is hight. Being above and dropping down, or letting them drop down in front of you are good ways of getting this too. The final tip I can give is to use objective games. When holding an objective, the player: Runs slower and has no Motion detector. A sitting duck for anyone.

... Got a Triple Double - Earn 3 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

Another set of 3. Doubles are easy to get, all you need are some power weapons, explosives, skill, a sneak attack or a fun gametype to play. Grifball and many other action sack games work perfectly. Living dead, another example.

It was the Winter... - Complete Winter Contingency on Legendary without dying - 1500cR

Easy stuff, this level is a lot of running about, only a couple of places where you need to fight, one of those you can splatter away, the other, you have Jorge.

I'm going to link back there as, Legendary is a cake walk compared to LASO.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/08/2011

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

Easiest way to get this, just do whatever you normally do. Most of the challenges here would get you this challenge in one go. Firefight is a good way to get it.

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

Killing Sprees: 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100, 200.
Special Sprees (Shotgun, Sniper, Splatter, Assist, Sticky, Splaser): 5, 10, 15.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Firefight Thursday has been invaded. To win, beat the enemy team, with a skull or a hammer. You could also try shooting them. Just do whatever the game requires you to. Avoid long objective based games that often end in draws (Invasion)

Grunt Spelunking - Kill 100 enemies on Glacier in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Keep choosing none of the above will you get this map in Scoreattack. Then pick a game type (Try and get scoreattack x2, will really help with the 7 sprees)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/08/2011

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

Just go out into that wild world of Matchmaking and kills tuff. Not much more to say about it.

Overlook's Overwatch - Kill 125 enemies on Overlook in Firefight Matchmaking - 1250cR

The prime gametype would be Scoreattack x2. This gives you more than 125 enemies (Although not by much) and then you can do this in one sitting. If not, go for speed with Gruntpocolypse or something.

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

Find the first big group, let loose with your Sniper and then revert to saved. It's not a hard one to do, just remember to not die and to revert to saved when you're running low on enemies (To get a checkpoint after running low on ammo can be a bugger)

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

SWAT, Snipers, or any other gametype that gives you a precision weapon (DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle, Focus Rifle) 5 kills isn't that many so just go for whatever.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/08/2011

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

Nice and simple, a single of Scoreattack x2 will get you here and as it's the only Firefight challenge, I suggest just that.

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

Just play and kill, nothing special here either.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Needler, Assault Rifle and Plasma Repeater. The ARE on Winter is very nice as it has a heavy 600 rounds.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 10 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Grifball, Multi-Team & Infection are good here. Chaos with easy multikill availabilities.

A very basic day. Nout especially special.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/08/2011

A couple of big hitters today.

Gunslinger - Kill 75 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2250cR

Just keep putting your cross-hair on the enemy and shooting them. Not challenge here, jsut stick to games you like (And will assist on the weekly)

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1250cR

Greande LAuncher, Concussion Rifle, Rockets and Fule Rod Cannons are the weapons you want. Action Sack has Splockets, Dino Blasters, Shotgun Assault & Boom Ball for a start. All games that use those weapons.

Double Nickels - Earn 2 Killing Sprees in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1500cR

Objective long games work well. Invasion is good as is Infection but the best way to get it it to have a clear line of sight to the target, but stay far enough away to not be a target yourself.

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

Log into with the same E-mail address as your Xbox Live account. It's a free 3000cR.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 22/08/2011 Best Served Cold

Best Served Cold

Take your Revenge on 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking


Rather nice challenge here. at 11 kills a day this should be no trouble. To get a revenge, kill the enemy that last killed you. The smaller the map and the less people on a team, the easier it is to pick them out. Always try to remember something important about your enemy. Armour effect, Helmet, Gamertag. These things will help you find your enemy in a group and then pick him off. Do it again and again.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/08/2011

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

Play Firefight. Shoot things. Make things explode. Do you need much more help?

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1200cR

Scoreattack x2 if you're soloing. Other than that, just find them. Arcadefight has a bunch of waves good for this. Hunter waves get 4 Rangers, Final Waves get a few gold & a few Rangers. A few Elites will pop down every so often and Heretic rounds are 100% Elite.

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

Arcadefight, get in there and find the drop with the vehicle. Best activated from Doubles, not normal Firefight. Normal Limited also works well, but isn't very good for speed runs.

Better, Closer, Warmer - Earn at least 10 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1200cR

Long, Objective games with multiple rounds. Invasion/Grifball

Sorry for the delays the weekend. Been mega busy. Normal service from tomorrow onwards.
