Halo Reach Daily Challenges 03/09/2011

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

A couple of games of Firefight will get you thins one. You can attempt a 1 shot Scoreattack x2 or a one hit Firefight game. Up to you.

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

Anyything that you can use to bludgeon your enemy with: Hammer, Fists, Skulls or even bombs Swords also work as do shotguns. Only 3 though so no real challenge. Best shot is in Grifball because that is 99% Melee kills.

Aggressive Negotiations - Earn at least 19 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game -1900cR

A bit of a challenge here. Best chances lie in the long objective game or games of carnage. Rumble pit games where it's first to 25 work well, Multi-Team, Invasion, Grifball, Living Dead. These are the gametypes I'd choose. It's doable in regular slayer/objective games, but it can be a struggle, you'd need to be doing most of the killing.

L.D. Solace - Complete Long Night of Solace, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on - 5000cR

It's not as bad as LASO, but damn it's trying.

I also suggest LASO Strategy.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 02/09/2011

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

Just jump into multiplayer and kill things. Really not much I can say to this. Speedy games for this challenge are Grifball & Multi-Team.

Sweep the Leg - Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Just the one is needed, so no need to worry about getting a second one. hight Advantage, Speed Advantage, Stealth Advantage. Any of these things helps, a combo of them all works better. Objective carriers are slower (Speed) have no Motion Sensor (Stealth) and if you're on the level above them (Hight) they won't even see you coming before you've got the challenge. Active Camo or Sprint/Evade also helps.

Streaky Shooter - Earn 3 sprees in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1000cR

Not in a single game mind you. So killing sprees & weapons sprees all come out at intervals of 5. Zombie killing sprees mixed with Shotgun & regular killing sprees will get this done very, very quickly.

I Need Some Ammo - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Famine Skull on - 1250cR

Nightfall blitz run anyone?

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 01/09/2011

Happy September everyone. Couple of weeks till the Anniversary of our beloved game.

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

A couple of games is all this will take you. Depending on Firefight or Scoreattack will determine how quick. Once again though, it's one of those challenges that will be acquired through other challenges.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 150 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

Always found Gruntpocolypse easiest for this challenge. DMR & Pistol works wonders against Grunts. Will take a couple of games though. I'd suggest playing one game of Gruntpocolypse, then moving on to something else and then picking this one up later.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 70 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher - 1250cR

Arcadefight nicely gives you this as a spawn option. you'll want to work on this one as much as possible, you do extra damage to using the EMP Grenade feature is usually enough to kill. (if you have enough kills after, try moving back to the Headshot challenge)

Katanarama - Kill 5 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking - 1500cR

Once again, Arcadefight. The final loadout gives you an Energy sword. Just take it and go nuts on the first 5 enemies you see.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 31/08/2011

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

Jump into some matchmaking into a gametype that involves killing. Once there just do what comes naturally. I'm hoping it has something to do with pulling the triggers.

Support Structure - Earn 30 assists in Firefight Matchmaking - 2250cR

Plasma Pistols are your friend against Elites... and many enemies. Plasma has a weakened effect against flesh, in the game anyway. I would advise going into a Firefight doubles game with a friend. Play a game of arcade fight and stick together, you might just get the whole challenge done for both of you in a single game.

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

Exodus, ONI and Winter Contingency are all levels that have large amount of cannon fodder Grunts. At the start of Exodus they're literly killing themselves. Just make sure to get a few shots in.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em! - Kill 10 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing - 1200cR

While jet packing, so you need to be holding the use button as you get the kill. There are a few fun game modes with Jet packs. Dino Blasters (Unlimited Concussion Rifle Ammo & Jetpack while you're an Elite) Splockets (Splasers & Rockets, pick up a jet pack and have fun) Grifball has a few new Jet Pack variants. The other way is to just play normally and take off just as you get a kill. Power weapons and grenades will help greatly.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/08/2011

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

Start up a game and go around in Firefight or Scoreattack. There are a few other challenges that require Firefight, so focus on them and let this one come naturally.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1200cR

Scoreattack x2 will give you bunch (Although you may be left a few short after 1 game) Arcade fight in Firefight will certainly fair you better, If you can get a Heretic Elite round (Round 1, Pistols, DMR, AR, Shotgun)(Round 2, DMR & Sniper)(Round 3, Rockets, Lasers and Grenade launchers)

Golden Opportunity - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder - 2500cR

These guys have a very nice list. Pick one and kill it. Remember, you have to kill it quick, they will disappear.

Five-time Champ - Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1750cR

Play and win. Pick game you are good at, or get a team who are good.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/08/2011

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

Any... That word always means you go off, do the other challenges and then come back to this one.

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

Spawn with a Shotgun, get up close and shoot. Works best on Elites, Brutes and Grunts. Jackals & Skirmishers, generally, move too fast/have shields. So while it is possible, best to switch out for those guys. Arcadefight will give you enough stuff to kill though.

Put Your Quarter Up - Complete 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1750cR

Play them. Everything you need to do is in the title.

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

10 kills, or 5 kills in a specific way. I can't help you here. Weapons you can usually use from spawn are Shotgun/Sniper

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 29/08/2011 Co-op Dash

Co-op Dash

Clear any Campaign mission on Heroic, in co-op, in 9 minutes or less


With a reward that big, you'd be crazy to miss out. Well, in terms of levels you can beat in 9 minutes co-op, you're limited.

Winter Contingency is doable, IF you can steal a Falcon, this is a hard task, so once again, we're going to be playing the old Nightfall Trick. I really do hope you know that trick by now, if not, have a link.

Now, Nightfall on Co-op, has the possibility to spawn all the enemies on the other side of the gate, even if you glitch through it, so you've got 3-4 mins to get there, followed by 5 mins to fight your way through 4 turrets and a bunch of Elites & Grunts. With no skulls on this challenge should be easy enough. So enjoy yourself. We're one away from a whole year.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/08/2011

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

Start with the other challenges and then come back to this one wither either te final traces of the weekly, or some Firefight/Campaign.

Streaky Shooter - Earn 7 sprees in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1750cR

Killing Sprees come in Multiples of 5 as do Specials such as, Weapon (Splaser, Sniper, Shotgun), Splatters, Assists, Zombie Killing (Living Dead can get you Killing, Zombie Killing & Shotgun sprees in bucket loads and Grifball can get you Hammers, Killing and possibly Sword sprees easily too)

Survivor - Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Killing Sprees now come at intervals of 10 till you hit 50, then at 100 & 200 kills. Special sprees are still at 5, so grab your shotgun & sniper and start murdering. ArcadeFight in Team or Scoreattack x2 in Single will easily get you what you need

Go Right Ahead Folks - Earn a First Strike in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Take your sprint and your weapon and find out where they are quickly. Multiple round games (Grifball for example) can have 5 different winners of the award. You just need to make sure you get in first.
