Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/10/2011

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

2 Games of Scoreattack will be required, or if you're lucky, you might just get away with one game of Firefight. If not, well then finish up with a game of Gruntpocolypse or whatever. Something quick.

Sweep the Leg - Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Any game can work here. Having, a Height, Speed or Camo advantage will help you here. Let an objective carrier (Who's slower than you) walk past and then get the quick hit.

Double Nickels - Earn 2 Killing Sprees in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 3000cR

Not too hard, once again, gametype will affect this. If you get Infection and play as the Humans twice, not that hard, just get some early kills. Grifball, just get lucky and spawn camp.

Stronger, Harder - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Famine, Tough Luck, and Thunderstorm on - 2000cR

Nightfall... I'm going to record a LASO Nightfall right now. So I can use the video.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/10/2011

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 2250cR

The any game mode again. The challenges are mostly MP based so that's not the most efficient way to go about it. I'd say get in a game of Scoreattack, then hit the Campaign challenge, finish it off with the other MP challenges.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Rockets, Lasers, Grenade Launchers, Fuel Rod Cannons, Plasma Launchers and Concussion Rifles. Action Sack Gametypes such as Splockets (Lasers & Rockets), BOOMBall (Grenade Launchers), Dino Blasters (Concussion Rifles) will get you thins challenge in no time.

Neuroscience - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2400cR

SWAT, Snipers and if you're struggling a little bit, Invasion. SWAT & Snipers are 1 hit kills for the head so that'll help. SWAT Objective games can work if you're not getting enough kills in Slayer.

I Need Some Ammo - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Famine Skull on - 2500cR

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/10/2011

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 3000cR

Simple and easily done in a single Firefight match. Nothing worth noting.

Unto The Breach - Kill 1000 enemies on Corvette in Firefight Matchmaking - 6000cR

This IS worth noting, 1000 kills. That quite a few games. About 8-9 of them. All on the same level. Scoreatttack will be the fastest way as you'll be more likely to get this level. Enjoy your Gruntpocolypse and Scoreattack x2 (The quickest ways for this challenge)

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

With those 1000 kills, I'm sure you can get 10 kills without being killed in the process at some time.

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

DMR & Pistols in Gruntpocolypse. 1 Bullet, easy kills.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/10/2011

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

Rather simple as per the norm. Games like Grifball & Multi-Team will help with this one rather quickly, though you may have found your own method that works better.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 2343cR

Urgh... Least Favourite for me. So much grind and too much luck with if you'll get the Vehicle. Best chances are with Firefight Doubles and then play some ArcadeFight. Usually 1 vehicle to blow up per round. Still a fair few games though.

Tough Luck... On - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Tough Luck Skull on - 2500cR

Stating the obvious there. Tough Luck just means you have to aim better. You can die, there's no time limit and most importantly, you can run through Nightfall.

The Dream Shake - Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking - 4000cR

Doubles are rather easy to come by. Grifball, Infection and Multi-team you can swim in them Most other games are just as valid though. Always works well when you've got some added power (Shotgun, Sniper, Rockets)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/10/2011

1 year of this site being up and updated. (Not including the first couple of posts that were nothing related at all) So there will be a contest later on. Most likely for 1200MS points. Will wait untill I arrive home and am not at work first though.

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

Any game mode. Well you got some Firefight, Campaign and Multiplayer to play today, so the combination of them all might help you there. If you finish them all and still have a few to get, why not go for the weekly, or just a small bit of Firefight.

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

Weapon Sprees at every 5 (5, 10, 15) and then killing sprees at intervals of 10 (10, 20, 30, 40, 50 and then 100 but let's not get into that as it's not needed). Start with a Shotgun or Sniper in ArcadeFight and you'll be set for this challenge. 20 kills minimal.

Eyes in the Sky - Kill 10 enemies with the Designator in ONI on Heroic - 1500cR

If you take the designator to the gun with 1 shot left in it, easy stuff. If 2 shots, very easy. Use the designator just in front of the buildings and hit the largest amount of enemies you can. Also try hitting them as they're disembarking the dropships.

Go Right Ahead Folks - Earn a First Strike in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

The more rounds, the better. Grifball gives you 3-5 chances and it's mostly luck for that first swing anyway.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 10/10/2011 Multiplicative


Earn 200 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking this week


Pace yourself. I said the same thing last week and it's no different today. 200 isn't that many but don't let it sneak up on you. The best way to get this on is to play the games that enable multikills better.

Grifball, for all the chaos and easy spawn killing (Yes it's lowly, cheap and down right annoying, but it's effective)

Infection, those zombies can only take a hit or 2 before falling and that shotgun can wipe them out in close combat.

Multi-Team, it's got multi in the title. The chaos from multiple battling groups can really help out here. Play some king of the hill and you'll be set.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/10/2011

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

50 of them. Shoot them, Make them explode or hit them with a hammer. Just a few suggestions I can make. Enter Multiplayer and kill them.

Golden Opportunity - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder - 5000cR

They really want us to kill these Golden Elites. I'm sure it pops up about 3 times a week.

Put Your Quarter Up - Complete 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3200cR

Just enter a game and stay till the end. Really, that's it.

Neuroscience - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2400cR

SWAT & Snipers are the games that focus on the headshots, games like invasion work just as fine though. As a Spartan you always have access to a Pistol or DMR and as an Elite you're good from tier 2 with the Needle Rifle.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/10/2011

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 3000cR

Any mode. With some Firefight and a fair few games of MP to play, shouldn't be too challenging.

Weapon Swap - Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder - 2000cR

Some Arcadefight will be good here. In that gamemode you can spawn with a Shotgun, Sniper or Sword. So that's 9 Sprees rather easily to begin with. Add a few killing sprees and you're done.

Came From Behind - Perform 2 Assassinations in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2200cR

Classic Objective games work best. Slow while holding the objective and a lack of motion detector. Just run up behind the objective holder and boom, done.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 5000cR

Play and win. It seems that on Sunday, the final daily challenge is an incentive boost to get the weekly done. Science must be done.
