Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/09/2011

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking -3200cR

A single game of Scoreattack x2 will place you with this challenge nicely. No need for repeat performances.

Helping Hand - Earn 10 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Invasion with the buddy spawning works very nicely. Best chance you have at this is shied popping. A quick Melee or Plasma Pistol Bolt will do that nicely.

Single Wield - Earn 77 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2800cR

Pistols of 2 varieties will get you this challenge. Thankfully the Regular Pistol can headshot, so SWAT works well. This challenge will take a while though. About 7-10 games is where I'd place my estimate.

Storm's Comin' - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with Mythic and Thunderstorm on - 3500cR

You can die so there's no need to worry about that, and this just about brings the difficulty up to Legendary. Just plough through the level. A level I suggest, Nightfall.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/09/2011

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 5500cR

Simple as always, and worth the cR. 150 will require a bit of Grinding, but it's Friday and you have to play 8 games to get all the challenges anyway. Just play games where killing is necessary.

This is My Rifle... - Earn 30 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2500cR

Needle Rifle, Sniper, DMR & Focus rifle will get you these kills. SWAT & Snipers is where I'd stick for this one. Games like invasion also work, but at a slower pace.

... Got a Triple Double - Earn 3 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Get a double, then stop. No extra points towards this challenge for getting yourself a Killtastrophy or Killpocolypse. Any game can get you double kills but games that are better fro it are Multi-Team, Rumble Pit, Living Dead & Grifball. You can also try power weapons in regular games for an extra boost.

Credits for Completion - Complete 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2800cR

Just play them. You don't need to win, just enjoy yourself and go for other challenges.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/09/2011

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 3200cR

What you want to do is got for the other challenges. Theoretically you could get all the challenges in 1 game. Either way, this one just involves you killing things in Firefight. To get this in one, select Scoreattack x2

Heroic Overwatch - Kill 125 enemies on Overlook on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR

To get this one, keep none of the aboving till you get this map. Once again, Scoreattack x2 will enable you to do this in one go. Provided the enemies aren't to trigger happy and kill each other.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR

I'd usually say Gruntpocolypse for this one, but to spice it up a little. Stick with the Scoreattack x2. Grab a DMR and Aim your shots so you can get the headshots and get the amount of kills required for the other challenges.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR

A spree, 10 kills is enough. I think I'm done here.

So yeah, see if you can get these all in 1 game of Scoreattack x2 on Overlook. 10 minutes of your day, 9200cR reward.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/09/2011

More than a Handful - Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2500cR

That's a fair few to kill. Nothing overly challenging though, once again it's just time you need to put in. I mean, even an unskilled player can get a lucky kill every once in a while.

Survivor - Earn 5 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Killing sprees are at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100 & 200. Special Sprees (Assist, Sticky, Spawn, Splatter, Wheelman, Sniper, Shotgun, Laser ect) come at 5, 10 & 15. So 20 kills with 15 of them being with a Sniper/Shotgun will work nicely.

The Little Guys - Kill 125 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 2000cR

Winter, ONI & Exodus are the levels filled with Grunts. So enter these levels and pick your targets. Once again, if you find a large group, kill them and revert to last saved.

Headshot Honcho - Kill 9 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2160cR

A somewhat hard challenge, best done in SWAT or Snipers. SWAT Objective games give you lots of time to get the kills required. If SWAT or Snipers isn't your thing, Invasion can still work wonders. As humans you can always spawn with a weapon capable of headshotting opponents (Pistol or DMR) as Elites, Needle Rifles from Tier 2 onwards.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/09/2011

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 2343cR

Any game mode once again, so leave this one be and focus on the others. You'll defiantly want to come back though, it'll be a nice addition to the weekly challenge.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 200 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Simple and easy, 2 games of Gruntpocolypse should set you straight for this. You get a DMR and a Pistol and you're fighting Grunts who go down with 2 shot to the head.

If It Bleeds... - Find and kill the Gold Range-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Normal or harder - 5000cR Once again a lovely page with a list of the B.O.B.s you can kill.

Make a Wish... - Earn a Running Riot in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 5000cR

15 kills in a game. Just running into battle won't cut it here. You're going to need an advantage. Easiest way to do that is to pick a gametype that'll work with you. Living Dead can work very well provided you get as many kills as quickly as you can. The less humans alive, the less chance of survival.

Another way, might be to get a weapon of power. Snipers work well as you can stay out of the firing line while having a 1 hit killer weapon. Another safe bet, Banshees & Scorpions. Powerful vehicles and if you play it safe (Keep at range with the tank and moving with the Banshee) you might just stay alive long enough to get your kills.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/09/2011

Very rewarding day today.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 2000cR

100 in any, just look to the other challenges and finish this one off with whatever you need to. Bit more Multiplayer, or maybe some custom Firefight.

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 10 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal - 2400cR

Take the Rocket Launcher, Take the Jet pack, fly up high and aim for the Grunts. Just remember, the important rule though YOU MUST BE HOLDING THE USE EQUIPMENT BUTTON AS YOU GET THE KLL. Very important.

Aggressive Negotiations - Earn at least 17 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 3430cR

Grifball, Multi-Team, Rumble Pit and Objective gametypes will give you time needed and lack of limitations required to get this challenge.

Clip It. Share It. - Make a clip from your Local files and upload it to your File Share - 2500cR

Rather simple, take a video of your last game, 1 second to the whole ting. Find it in the file browser menu and press X, then upload to file share. Done, a free 2500cR

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 19/09/2011 Dedication/Time


Complete 10 Daily Challenges this week


Haven't seen this one in a while. Nor do I remember it at such a low amount of challenges. 10 challenges is 2 and a half days worth of challenges. Not much to be said here, just keep your eyes on the dailies.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/09/2011

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

Any game mode once again, so Firefight will give you an added boost with the credits. (Often found that Firefight gives you the most cR for your time)

The Little Guys - Kill 75 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1000cR

Exodus, Winter & ONI are what I'd pick for this mission. Same as always. I don't think you need much help on grunt killing though.

L.D. Package - Complete The Package, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on - 5000cR

As is the norm, you can never be too prepared, so take this LASO guide and skip bits of it out. Saying that, If you do Die, provided you quit and then reload the game, you can finish like that.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 7 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1400cR

Fule Rod, Rockets, Grenade Launchers, Concussion rifles. Stuff that goes boom. Action Sack has stuff like Boom Ball (GL), Dino Blasters (Conc) Splockets (Lasers & Rockets) so you're set for that rather easily.
