Halo Reach Daily Challenges 12/11/2011

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

Any game mode, once again very simple. Move onto the other challenges and then finish this one up with whatever you need. Usually Firefight will get you a big boost.

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

SWAT, Snipers and Invasion will work. SWAT Objective will allow you to get a bunch of kills without it affecting game progress (usually)

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

Killing Sprees at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 100 and Specials at 5, 10, 15 (Shotgun, Snipers, Swords, Hammers, Splatter, Wheelman etc.)

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal - 3000cR

~Start at Rally Point Alpha, Grab that Rocket Launcher, then hold that use button as you get the kill. Keep reverting to last save at a large group of enemies. Done in no time.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 11/11/2011

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

This be a small amount. Just a single game of Firefight will get you the is challenge. The other challenges won't give you the amount of kills you need for this alone, but how you play them might give you a big enough boost to get over half way.

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

Objective based games are always the best as they generally have the objective carrier at a disadvantage. Lack of Motion tracker & less speed. So if you've got Camo, Speed or Height (All 3 is best) then you're set for this achievement.

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

the more rounds the better. I might suggest something like Grifball. Grifball allows you to have 3-5 rounds which re very short. Just throw yourself at the enemy at the beginning and time your swing right to get that first strike medal.

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

Start from Rally Point Alpha (In the Sabre) and then keep playing till you need to take out the engines. Once you've done that, move to the belly of the Ship and watch for the Blue streaks heading towards the planet. These are drop pods, select your Gun and blast at them where they'll be. The ship launches 6 at a time (groups of 3 on the left & right) they also continue for a long time so don't worry if you miss a few.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 10/11/2011

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

Not the largest amount but still fairly substantial. 3 Games of Scoreattack and then a little more of a boost from wherever else you want it. Got some Campaign to do today.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 2400cR

The best way to get a bunch of Elites is to hit up the Scoreattack x2. That last round has a bunch of the buggers. Many are invisible though so watch out for that. The plus side, they're all yours.

Tip of the Spear: LASO - Complete Tip of the Spear, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO) - 13000cR

More of a weekly than Daily and Campaign than Firefight, but whatever. Points are on a bit of a low side but still worth it. The first bit is a bugger and a half and the final bit when on the Whirly bird can be tricky too, but the rest of it is rather skippable thanks to vehicular sections and Jet Packs.

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

Single Player scoreattacks enables you to have more choices in you map selection so that's where you need to go. Play 2 games on it and be done.

Misspelling happen :P

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 09/11/2011

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

A small amount. 1 game of Scoreattack will sort you out here. Once again we've got a bit of everything so do whatever. You feel to get this one.

Killagruntjaro! - Earn 25 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 3000cR

Gruntpocolypse will work fine for the challenge so you can do that, or if you want something with a bit more bang, Rocket attack wwill set you up perfectly. Find a couple of groups, fire away and watch the multikills stream in.

A Side of Huevos - Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal - 3000cR

Fairly simple this one. Just keep following the, find a large group, unleash hell on them and then revert to last saves strategy. Good places are the first Sniping engagement and then where the militia are.

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

A very challenging one. Need to be close enough to the action to get the kills but not close enough to be killed. 10 in a row is hard. What you need is an advantage. The Scorpion/Banshee can deal a tonne of damage and you are rather protected. The downside being you become public enemy number 1. Gametypes such as Infection can work very well, you just have to kill early.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 08/11/2011

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

Any game mode. You got some of everything today. You'll most likely get this before finishing all the challenges, but Firefight is always the best way to go about this quickly.

Support Structure - Earn 30 assists in Firefight Matchmaking - 2250cR

Plasma shield stripping is the best shot you get. 30 is a very large amount though, try a couple of pistol shots into a Grunt and let your friends take him out. Once again though, playing with randoms might get you this challenge, or the best bet is to team up with a friend and take this on together.

Eyes in the Sky - Kill 20 enemies with the Designator in ONI on Heroic - 2500cR

Keep that Target Designator stocked, it'll come in handy and head towards the AA Gun. Blow up the area near the Gun/Where the enemy are being dropped off and watch the kills rise. Once you've done that, revert to last saved and do it again.

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

Start the game, finish the game. That's all you have to do.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 07/11/2011

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

Simple enough a game or 2 depending on what you play. Grifball/Multi-team will work out nicely for a quick fix.

Nature vs. Nurture - Kill 15 Moa in Winter Contingency on Normal or harder - 4000cR

Kill the bird like things. There are a bunch once you get in the Jeep, I'm not sure if running them over counts as a kill though, so just jump out and shoot them a couple of times.

Leadership Element - Kill 45 enemy leaders in the Campaign today - 2200cR

Enemy leaders are often Elites. Nightfall is full of the buggers and that Sniper is filled with a lot of ammo. Find an area where they're are a lot of leaders and shoot them, followed by a quick revert to last saved.

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

Play the games you're good at and win them. One of these things where you can't really overly force them. Avoid FFA games, multi-teams and Objective games that end in draws fairly easily.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 07/11/2011 Dedication/Time


Complete 10 Daily Challenges this week


Haven't had this one in a while. 10 challenges is a very small amount. You can be done by Wednesday if you get all of them today & tomorrow. Thing is to do as many as you can to start off. As long as you do 2 a day, Friday is where you'll be finished by. Pick your challenges.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 06/11/2011

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

A single game of Scoreattack x2 will get you this, but you'll want to make sure the map you play is Holdout. So you'll be playing 2 games on that level anyway.

Just Holdout - Kill 150 enemies on Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking - 2500cR

2 games on Holdout of solo Scoreattack games. Any game mode will work fine.

Mythic Evasion - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with Tough Luck and Mythic on - 3500cR

Ever heard of Nightfall and it's less than 5 minute completion time?

...Is a Virtue - Score 40,000 points in any Campaign mission with less than 3 deaths - 2000cR

LASO up on Long Night of Solace and start from Rally Point Alpha. Fly around in your Sabre and be done in no time at all.
