Halo Reach Daily Challenges 17/09/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 2250cR

A couple of Scoreattacks or Fightfights will get you this challenges nice and quickly.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 100 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

Assault rifles, Plasma Repeaters and Needlers are your weapons of choice. Most of these are close combat weapons so you'll have to avoid the urge to punch you enemy to finish them off.

Blast Radius - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades - 1000cR

Corvette works well with the span rooms once again. Gruntpocolypse mixed in with that for weak enemies also helps (Plus Grunts will usually have 1 Plasma Grenade on them when you kill them)

Deathless Alexandria - Complete Alexandria on Legendary without dying - 2100cR

One of the more easier LASO levels and without the skulls it's just another step down.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/09/2011

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

Any game mode once again, so take your time and finish this one off after doing the others with a bit of Fightfight or Campaign or something.

No 'I' in Team - Earn 8 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

In a single game, a bit tricky but I've often found that shield popping is the best way of doing this. Get into an invasion game with a friend and make sure to stick together. Best ways to shield pop are Punching the enemy or using a Plasma Pistol. Just remember that communication & teamwork are vital for this one.

Freelancing - Earn at least 20 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

A fairly large number, best idea is to shy away from Slayer games and stick to the objective. Grifball works very well, Rumble Pit can work, you have to get a good game though. Multi-team works very well once again.

Put Your Quarter Up - Complete 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1500cR

Just play the games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/09/2011

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

4 Games of Scoreattack or a few games of Firefight. It's hard to get an exact measurement on those games. As you've got a lot of other Firefight to do today though, this one will easily be achieved.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1200cR

Scoreattack x2 works well, as does Arcadefight with the Heretic rounds. Mix it up a bit and all should go well.

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

5 kills with a Vehicle, Sniper, Shotgun or Grenade Sticks or just 10 kills without a single death will get you this.

Blast Radius - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades - 1000cR

Corvette works very well. Those rooms can cause quite a nice Grenade Chain Reaction. Maybe some Gruntpocolypse on that map maybe?

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/09/2011

Happy Birthday Reach. This time last year was when Halo Reach came out. a Whole year of memories and challenges. Here's to another one.

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

3-5 games should be enough. It all varies on the type of game that you play. Slayer games are often faster for this. Though the more, unconventional can be better (Grifball eg)

The T.G. Opposition - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun - 1000cR

Unless you're forced into using a certain weapon (Sniperfight, Rocketfight, Plasmafight ect) there is always a loadout with a Shotgun attached. Shotguns will work well against most enemies, the only challenging enemies will be the Jackals and their shields, and their cousins the Skirmishers. They get up close but they're fast.

If It Bleeds... - Find and kill the Gold Range-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Normal or harder - 2500cR

I saw one on Nightfall quite a few times. Right where you meet the civilians, in the centre is where I saw one over and over again. With your sniper it's rather easy to pick him off too. There are also a few on Winter, heading down to the bottom on the right hand side is an easy way to find and splatter one.

There is a rather nice full list here for you to look at.

Chaddlesby's Justice - Avenge your teammates' deaths 7 times in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1840cR

Stick in pairs, that's the best way to go, the moment your friend goes down, finish off the enemy. Sometimes the best way to get this one is to be a bit, dickish, as it were. Letting you team mate die isn't always good for the game, but it'll do wonders for this challenge. Just make sure you do finish them off.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/09/2011

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

Once again, this amount isn't as large as the amount from other challenges today. It'll just come as you're getting those.

Just Holdout - Kill 150 enemies on Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

Scoreattack is your best bet. A higher chance of you getting this mission if you just keep "none of the above"ing over the list till this map arrives.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 50 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today - 1000cR

Kill the Grunts is the basic outline to this challenge. Winter Contingency, Exodus and ONIS are good missions to rack up a few kills. I'm doubting you need step by step instructions on killing Grunts though.

You Want This, Don't You? - Earn 12 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1500cR

Considered one of the hardest Daily Challenges. Sniper, DMR, Focus Rifle and Needle Rifle are the weapons that'll get you the points. SWAT & Snipers are both valid gametypes that you can play and if you get some Objective based SWAT games they can last a while. Invasion and other Objective games with Precision weapons also works.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/09/2011

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

This is a few games worth. Anything from Slayer to Grifball.

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

Any game mode, well you've got a bit of everything today, so there's your answer. Do everything else.

Return of the Mack - Kill 35 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1500cR

Rather simple again. Elites are found in most levels. More in Long Night, Nightfall & Lone Wolf than other missions (I believe anyway)

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

Gruntpocolypse. DMRs, Pistols and a bunch of 1 hit kill grunts. Will take 2 games though. Maybe jump into something a little less grinding after the first one?

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 12/09/2011 This Is How We Do It

This Is How We Do It

Complete 9 Campaign missions on Heroic


And thus we come full circle. After 52 challenges we're back at the very first one. This challenge isn't hard. Just play through the levels on heroic. You can even do whatever level you want over and over again. Hint, Hint, Nightfall.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/09/2011

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

There we have it another one of these any one. With a minimal of 250 kills on this challenge day anyway, just forget about this challenge and have it come as a nice surprise.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 200 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today -1500cR

The first mission has an army of grunts and enough Assault Rifle ammo to keep you shooting for a good minute of two.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 100 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today - 1250cR

This is usually grunts, therefore it goes hand in hand with the challenge above.

Demon - Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 1500cR

Scoreattack x2 will be the quickest way of getting this. The final wave is a bunch of Invisible Elites. So enjoy and don't get cut up too much by the swords.
