Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/10/2011

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

Kill stuff. got some Campaign & MP today, a fair bit of MP. Depending on game and mission, could be done before or nowhere near done by the end. Firefight it.

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

You can die in the process, so just, waddle through a level or something, I don't know, really tired now. Nightfall will work as the norm for these challenges.

Three Dog Fight - Earn a Triple Kill in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Grifball. Get some carnage going and camp some spawns. Or if that's not your thing, Infection works well.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 10000cR

First 5 digit Daily I believe. All you need to do, is play the games you play well. Nothing more. Actionsack for the more random games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/10/2011

I'm out in London for the MCM tomorrow, so don't expect anything too soon. I'll probably get around to updating this place about 12 hours after the challenges have been posted. Depends on trains and other things.

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 3800cR

Any game mode, but the rest of the challenges today are for Multiplayer, so how you tackle the rest of this is up to you, I'd say once you're done with MP, switch to Firefight. Always a good way to rack up the kills and get a bunch of cR.

Un, Deux, Trois - Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2900cR

Win 3 games. What are you good at, or what are your friends good at, or what are some random people you can pull into your party good at? Play that. If the answer to all the above is bugger all, try some Grifball or Actionsack, usually Luck is a fair helper and the regular rules of Halo and even FPS games don't apply.

Killing Frenzy - Earn a Killing Frenzy in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 4000cR

Stay close to the actions but far enough away to not be picked off or hunted. Multi-team games like king of the work well (Provided you're nowhere near the hill but can still lob grenades at it. Living Dead works well, start early and don't make stupid mistakes.

Credits for Completion - Complete 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1250cR

Play, stay, be done with it all. I'm sure you can get the other challenges while doing this.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/10/2011

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

Starting off small with a big reward. A single game of Scoreattack will be enough to get this challenge. Any game mode though so, do it however you want.

Take a Dip - Kill 150 enemies on Waterfront in Firefight Matchmaking - 2500cR

Scoreattack once again your best shot. Though you won't have enough enemies to get this challenge in one sitting as you would with an Arcadefight game (Doubles would work well) the chances of getting the level are very random. So Best shot is going around twice.

More Like In Post - Kill 150 enemies on Outpost in Firefight Matchmaking - 2500cR

Same as above, just a different level.

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

Easy again. Killing sprees at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100. Specials at 5, 10 & 15 (Stcky, Shotgun, Sniper, Sword, Hammer etc)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/10/2011

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

Tis a fair few enemies, but provided you play a game where you can kill enemies and do so as a major part of the game, you can get this challenge. Multi-Team & Grifball for speed.

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

Killing Sprees as always at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100, then Special Sprees at 5, 10, 15.

Special sprees include, Shotgun Kills, Sniper Kills, Plasma Sticks, Assists, Splatters, Sword Kills, Hammer Kills, Laser Kills & Wheelman to name some of the more common & easily acquired ones.

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

Exodus, Nightfall, ONI & Winter. These are the missions filled with Grunts. Most other missions are to but mostly these ones.

Freelancing - Earn at least 21 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game -2100cR

A rather high number. You won't be getting this easily in usual Slayer games. You need special gametypes.

Rumble Pit is solo and if it's slayer, it's first to 25 kills. You will need to be somewhat skilled in solo battle to get that high though.

If you're looking for a more team based version, Multi-team is first to 50 with 3 people, if you arrange it so your team assists and you go for kills, you've got enough flex room. Objective based versions of this game are a bit more unpredictable.

Invasion can work, you can have up to 25 minutes to kill and that's just 1 kill per min. You may need to puch forward hard/let the enemy get through a bit in order for this to work.

Grifball, my personal fav. The team that holds onto the bomb will control the game, keep the bomb close enough to their side so they stick their side and close together. Don't score it and rack up the kills.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/10/2011

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

A single game of Scoreattack x2 will give this to you. Yeah that's it really, just kill everything on the map and get it. You're playing solo so no need to worry about kill stealers (Unless the enemy all kill themselves.

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

Not sure why this one is worth less than the one above, this one requires a lot more effort. I've often found a couple of Gruntpocolypse games works well the DMR & Pistol work really well and it's only Grunts so it's one little shot to the head.

Pod Kettle Black - Kill 15 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace - 2343cR

Easy enough, start at rally point Alpha and keep your eyes on the bottom of the Corvette. It shoots down some glowing blue pods, use the machine gun to take them out. They don't fight back, just make sure you see them soon enough.

Vengeance Found - Earn your 'Revenge' in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Kill the guy who killed you, focus on their Helmet or Armour effect and then kil them before someone else kills you. Simple games such as Grifball works well. Easy to find the person who killed you.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 24/10/2011 Alexandria: LASO

Alexandria: LASO

Complete Alexandria, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO)


No need to pace yourself here, time to blitz this challenge. Thankfully, this is one of the easier missions, thanks to Jet packs and Camo, you can skip a whole lot of fighting. (Mostly the Drones & Hunters) you will need to pick up a lot of Needler/Needle Rifle ammo though. A bunch of Brutes will a lot easier to kill. Once they're dead, get yourself a Plasma Pistol and take out the Elites.

Head on down to HBO for a full in depth rundown.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/10/2011

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

Any game mode. Tis an easy one. Go for other challenges and then just do whatever. Though with what you need to do today, I think this challenge will be completed before all the others. You could just Firefight it for a bit.

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

Grunts are easy pickings. The first 3 missions (Winter, ONI & Nightfall) and Exodus are the best missions for the job. Tonnes of Grunts and I'm assuming you know how to kill them.

Five-time Champ - Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 4343cR

Not so hard, all you need to do is bee good at a gametype, or be with a team who's good, or a game that's a lot of luck. I can't really help you here too much, it's all dependant on the person. Action sack games often have a bit of luck involved.

Killing Frenzy - Earn a Killing Frenzy in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 4000cR

10 kills without getting killed in the process. A rather hard one, you need to stay out of the action enough to no be targeted as the main thret, but close enough to get the kills. Certain games will be better, Grifball can be a good one, hold onto the bomb and slowly work your way up, or Living dead, just play that one carefully and start early.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/10/2011

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 4000cR

Any game mode you like and you've got a fair bit of MP & Firefight to play today, so it'll be quite likely this challenge could be completed before all the others. If it's not though, some Firefight will help top it off.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 100 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 4500cR

Assault Rifle, Needler and Plasma Repeater are your weapons here. Thankfully, all easy to spawn with. You have to keep enough distance though, going for the melee kill won't add one to this mountain of kills.

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

Doubles Attack and Arcade Fight. Watch for the Vehicle drop. Usually one a round and with a pair of you, shouldn't take too long.

Close Talking - Earn 20 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Melee, Swords, Hammers and Shotguns are your weapons here. In all honesty, you'll probably get it while going for the machine gun one.
