Halo Reach Daily Challenges 05/11/2011

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

Any game mode. Well we've got some Multiplayer & Campaign to play through, so that'll rack up most of your kills.

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

The Shield pop is what you want to do. Plasma Pistol or your own fist works well. Let your team know and let them take them out. I'd suggest Invasion with a friend.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1250cR

Actionsack has game like BOOM! Ball, Dino Blasters & Splockets. These games use the heavy weapons that you need (Grenade Launcher, Concussion Rifle, Fuel Rod, Rockets). Any game that gives these to you can work, just Actionsack has the better gametypes for it.

Lost Tyree, Lost Hutch - Complete Long Night of Solace on Legendary without dying - 3800cR

Legendary isn't all that hard, the hardest bit will be the control room, but there, you can stealthily take out all the Elites without alerting anyone. Just time it right. If you die, Save and quit, continue from there and you can still get the challenge.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 04/11/2011

Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3500cR

Killing enemies shouldn't be overly hard, I'm sure that even if you've only just picked up the game you can do it. Just point and click. For speed I'd say keep to Grifball and Multi-team. Best thing to do though, mix in the other MP challenges.

Single Wield - Earn 100 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

A very large kill count here. The Pistols are what you'll be using. The Magnum is your best bet. Get into some SWAT/SWAT Magnums and use that pistol to headshot your way to victory. It'll take quite a while but the other gametypes, if you're using a pistol, you will find yourself often outmatched. It can work though.

Twin Trips - Earn 2 Triple Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

We ever had this one before? I don't remember the Daily challenges so well. Too many of them. Anyway, get 3 kills within 4 seconds of each other. Do it twice. An easy challenge for games such as Grifball, Living Dead & Multi-Team. Once again, still feasible in any gametypes though, just need to have the right weapons and timing. Use those grenades well.

Home Field Advantage - Win 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 4400cR

Just play the games and win them. Unless you want to down right cheat, not much going to help you here. Just pick the games you're better at and are more likely to have a winner (Not Objective and not Rumble Pit, too many places)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 03/11/2011

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

Any game mode, but once again we're in Firefight for today so there's your answer.

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

10 kills or 5 kills with a Shotgun/Sniper/Sword. These will be the quickest was to get it. Honestly, no challenge.

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

100 enemies with headshot. Weapons for this, DMR, Sniper and Pistol. One game of Gruntpocolypse will be enough for this challenge, but you may want to Scoreattaack x2 it for some boost to the next challenge.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 2800cR

Scoreattack x2 will give you around 20 Elites for a single game. Might be a bit less, but either way it's your best shot unless you're doing some Arcadefight doubles with a friend and you get some Heretic Rounds.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 02/11/2011

Few laptop problems but everything will be back to normal by tomorrow. I hope.

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

With Flat tire, you';ll be killing a fair few more than needed. With a bit of everything today, it shouldn't be too hard to pick this one up.

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

Simple if time consuming. The enemy will drop off 1 vehicle per round in an Arcade Fight match. Regular Firefight (Traditional limited) will have a few more (Sometimes replenishing on each wave) but it's a lot harder.

Golden Opportunity - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder - 5000cR I still say Nightfall is the quickest and easiest. Straight off the bat, in the first fight.

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

Play the games you like, win the games. Can't really force this one.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 01/11/2011

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

1 game of Scoreattack x2 will get you all the enemies you need. Just kill them before they kill themselves.

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

Killing Sprees at every 10 till 50, then the next one's at 100. If you mix this in with the last challenge, the 3 shotgun sprees for 5, 10 & 15 kills works lovely.

Linked Up with - Link your gamertag with and play a game in Halo: Reach Matchmaking - 3000cR

Nice & simple. Go to and Sign in with you XBL account e-mail. No trouble.

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

Grifball & Multi-team for speed. Most games will work though. It'll probably be a slow process of Doubles though.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 31/10/2011 Endure: The Return

Endure: The Return

Complete four sets on any Firefight map in co-op play on Heroic or harder


Last time we had this, the way to go about it was in a Custom Firefight game. Same this time. Maybe put that 1,000,000 points in 10 minutes game to good use.

5 Waves in a Round,
3 rounds in a Set,
4 Sets Completed.

There should be a number in the bottom right, that's the Set number. Once it hits 5, you'll be done.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 31/10/2011

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

With only 1 MP challenge today and that being a rather simple one, you'll need to put in a fair bit of extra effort into this challenge. Multi-Team & Grifball for speed, but anthing will work really.

Eyes in the Sky - Kill 20 enemies with the Designator in ONI on Heroic - 1250cR

Simple as always, take out the Wraiths using only 1 strike. (Take out the second one either by hijack) then move to the Gun Turret. The Target Designator will slowly regenerate shots provided you don't just spam and waste them. Fire off a shot as the dropship is, dropping off troops, if that's not enough, revert to last saved.

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

10 kills for a killing spree or 5 kills with a Shotgun/Sniper/Sword. These are the most likely ways of getting this challenge.

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

SWAT, Snipers and if you've not got enough time to get the challenge, Invasion. SWAT & Snipers are very Headshot related gametypes, and invasion is just a long time for a blank slate. That Pistol will work fine.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/10/2011

Hi all, sorry for the late update, as well as being tired from yesterday (Sorry Wild, I popped over to the DDR area but I couldn't find you, so many people there) the clocks went back, so I got a bit confused as to when the challenges update UK time. Now I know, so lets move on.

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

Rather simple, amount as usual. you'll probably hit this amount on the way to completing the other challenges. If not, you'll only need a few more.

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

Just complete the games, don't need to win then, just use the time to give yourself a boost on the first challenge.

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

I believe the whole, save & quite at the final checkpoint thing works perfectly fine. So I'd suggest that, there is no Iron so you can take your time and test out strategies.

Return of the Mack - Kill 50 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1700cR

You'll probably kill a couple in the challenge above, but Normal difficulty on Long Night or Nightfall would probably work better.
