Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/10/2011

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

You need to play 4 Games of MP and a bit of Campaign. So you should be about half way there with this one by the end. Some custom Firefight will finish it up nicely.

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

In one game can be hard, all you need is Camo or Speed really. Get an objective game where the opponent walks slow with it (EG Invasion) and just walk up behind, and stab them in the heart.

If It Bleeds... - Find and kill the Gold Range-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Normal or harder - 5000cR I still say Nightfall is the quickest and easiest.

Participation Counts - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2400cR

Just play.

Now if you'll excuse me, back to Batman.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/10/2011

Your Daily Dose - Complete all of the Daily Challenges for a given day - 7777cR

I want to talk about this one first because... well it's a weekly challenge. It's even got the weekly logo on the Challenge section on the Bungie site. So either you complete the other 3 challenges and you get this, or we're not getting this challenge. Someone verify this for me please?

EDIT: Well, looks like it's a no go. Bit disappointing.

EDIT 2: Challenge has been replaced by Double Double.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Right, a simple on here, Double kills come easily but if you're looking for a quick fix, Grifball, Living Dead, Multi-Team and SWAT are where I'd suggest sticking your time.

More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

25 is a game or two depending on what you choose. Grifball, Multi-Team for the quick fix, anything else for the normal.

Better, Closer, Warmer - Earn at least 9 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2343cR

See above challenge. While GB & MT will work great, 9 is still an easy number to get in most gametypes. Living Dead, Slayer and all objective games. Rumble Pit still goes to 25 and that's a solo game so, easy stuff.

Credits for Completion - Complete 6 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1300cR

Start the game and finish it, all you got to do. Kills & objective based things will get you more cR though.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/10/2011

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

A nice amount of cR there for what is practically, one game. Scoreattack x2 will get it in one, but I'd suggest combining it with some of the other challenges.

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

Towards, Down, Down Towards then attack. Low attack for up slash, Medium for horizontal and High for a downwards. Follow up with a High attack for a powerful Chimichangas hit.

Alternatively, start some Arcadefight (Preferably doubles for the other challenges) and pick that loadout at the bottom that gives you an energy sword.

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

In Arcadefight, you can get Sword, Sniper & Shotgun sprees easilly. Mixed in with the killing sprees and you're set for the whole game. You may need to die to get the new weapons.

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

Sniper, DMR & Pistol are all spawnable weapons that are headshotting weapons. All available in Arcadefight.

What I've basically told you to do is play a game of Arcadefight in doubles and get ALL the challenges in 1 game. Have fun.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/10/2011

Congrats to XoSkeleton who has now reclaimed the points.

More than a Handful - Kill 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3500cR

A small 11% of the weekly challenge. Might be good to put some away. Grifball is all I'll say.

That Pink Mist - Kill 200 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

You can spawn with a Fuel Rod Cannon and Needler in Arcade Fight, so do that and unleash the pinkness. Also helps to pick up a Needle Rifle when you find one, that infinate ammo will come in very hand.

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

I'm sorry, this one is simple and not at all challengeing. Play a game for a few seconds, come out, load the recording, make a small 2 second video then unpload it.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 15 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Grifball, Multi-Team, Living Dead. All very easy games to get multikills in. So that's more or less it. It's not hard to get a Double kill or anything, these will jsut speed up the process.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/10/2011

Winner to the contest has been contacted. Will grab what's needed and confirm winning tomorrow.

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

A couple of Firefight games and if you're going to get this one. To be honest though, I doubt you need help in killing things in Halo Reach, it's rather simple.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR

5 is the nice smaller amount. Some Arcadefight in Firefight doubles is your best bet. Usually 1 vehicle per round, so 2 games (or 5 if you're doing a pair) and you should be set.

L.D. ONI - Complete ONI, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on - 7500cR The LASO Guide as usual is helpful. The plus side to no Iron though, is the ability to save & quit before the end and continue from a final checkpoint.

Not as Clumsy or Random... - Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

SWAT & Snipers are good as they give you precision weapons and focus mainly on them. Other games that start you off with such weapons are fine too. Slayer DMRs, Slayer Pro, anything that starts you with a DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle or Focus Rifle.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 17/10/2011 All in a Week's Work

All in a Week's Work

Kill 700 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking this week


Pace... Yourself... Well what else can I say. 100 kills a day is what you're looking for it you want to make a smooth transition. Depending on gametype you can pick up 10-100 kills. Grifball I've often found averaging at about 50 kills for a 8-10 minute game. This week with this challenge, I expect a bunch of people to flock to it in order to get a high amount of kills.

Multi-Team is another high rewarding gametype, it's a bit less so that Grifball, but it is more towards your tradition Halo gameplay.

Also, Contest is over, I'll get a winner and converse with them later today.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 17/10/2011

More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Not in one game, so spread this out however you want. Play 25 games with 1 kill in each if you want. Grifball & Multi-Team for speed.

Blast Radius - Kill 75 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades - 2500cR

Quite a few to kill with grenades. You can also shoot grenades on the floor to get kills towards this if you're running low. Gruntpocolypse on Corvette is at all possible. Those rooms are useful for containing explosions.

Credits for Completion - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2400cR

Enter, Play and stay till you've won or lost the game. Doesn't matter if you win, that's just an added bonus.

Points Pyramid - Score 60,000 points on any Campaign mission - 1750cR

Been a while since we've had this little bugger. Same strategy as always though, get yourself flying high in Long Night of Solace (Rally point Alpha) and stick on as many of those golden skulls you can while on Legendary. Many of the skulls have no effect in space, Black Eye, Touch Luck, Catch, Famine, Cloud. I'd say go for broke and LASO it, see how that goes. Shouldn't take you too long.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/10/2011

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

It's got that any tag and there's some Firefight & Multiplayer challenges to be done today.

Better, Closer, Warmer - Earn at least 7 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2500cR

Objective Games get you more kills, so Multi-Team objective games will work well (More so if it's king of the hill). Grifball is once again brilliant due to its, often 50+ kill count (Definitely if you've got some people playing today who are looking for the Multikill weekly challenge)

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

Killing sprees at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50.
Special sprees at 5, 10 ,15 (Shotgun, Sniper, Assist, Sticky, Wheelman, Splatter, Sword, Hammer etc.)

You Want This, Don't You? - Earn 12 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 3000cR

SWAT & Snipers as per usual (Get some SWAT Objective if possible) of if you need more time, Invasion can help)
