Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/11/2011

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

100 kills in any, come one. You can do that in your sleep (or one game of Firefight/Scoreattack)

This is My Rifle... - Earn 40 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2600cR

SWAT & Snipers are Precision Heavy, but all kills you get with the Sniper, DMR, Needle Rifle & Focus Rifle count towards this challenge.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 77 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking - 4400cR

Assault rifle will be the most popular one here. Though the Repeater Rifle & Needler will also work. the gametype where you have all of these to start with, Invasion.

Return of the Mack - Kill 35 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 3000cR

Nightfall & Long night have many, many Elites. The whole Find a big group, kill them and revert to saved works well here.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/11/2011

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

With a bunch of Multiplayer challenges today(Which are moderately easy) this challenge looks like it'll bleed over into extra requirements. Firefight is quick, easy and often gives a few nice cR.

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

A bit more tricky than the usual one. To get them in one game is still very easy. Speed, Stealth and Height are the things you want to have. To be able to quickly sprint/evade up behind while their distracted works wonders. The other way to do this is to Camo up and wait for them to pass. Find a usually occupied place,wait for someone to pass and then pounce. Also,Jumping down behind, or having an enemy jump down in front of you is rather nice too.

Above the Neckline - Kill 7 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2500cR

SWAT & Snipers works well. Any weapons that can headshot works well as 7 is a rather small amount. Invasion works very well due to long play times.

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

Just play the games. If you're good and have a good team, you'll win. Actionsack for the fun, more random & lucky games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 17/11/2011

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

Small time. 100 is a single game of Scoreattack x2. All the challenges today be done in a single game is enough to get all the challenges today.

Survivor - Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Killing sprees at 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 & 100. Special (Shotgun, Snipers, Sword etc) 5, 10 & 15.

Heroic Demon - Kill 20 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking on Heroic or harder - 2200cR

Scoreattack x2 should give you enough Elites, it maybe a bit of a squeeze but it should be fine.

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

Headshots. Pistol, DMR, Snipers & Needle Rifle are the weapons of choice. Also the only weapons you can use (From my disappearing memory)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/11/2011

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 5500cR

A bit of a grind. Add more to the weekly and speed through with Grifball/Multiteam.

One Game, One Spawn - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying - 2000cR

Doubles works well as you can play single round games rather than sets. Just keep your eyes open and your enemies distant.

Pod Kettle Black - Kill 20 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace - 1200cR

Start from Rally Point Alpha and get to the Corvette. Take out the engines and stay beneath the ship. They ship will launch the blue bolts down at the planet, these are what you need to take out with your bullets.

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

SWAT & Snipers are good for this challenge, Objective based game for their time are good too (Invasion) DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle, Focus Rifle. Use these for this challenge.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/11/2011

Happy Halo Anniversary day. 10 Years. I can't claim to have been their from the start, but I damn well did my best to catch up.

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

Any mode, so Firefight for a quick fix but with all the other challenges, you'll very much overshoot this. So go for the others and this one will come naturally.

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

A couple of Gruntpocolypse games are what I find work best. DMR + Pistol = Easy Headshots on Grunts. A bit of a grind and you need to aim carefully, but nothing impossible.

Deathless Pillar - Complete The Pillar of Autumn on Legendary without dying - 5000cR

I'm assuming this is the Reach version and not the new Anniversary edition. As you know, the lovely save and quit glitch works nicely. Just get to the end of the level and before the end, save and quit, then work your way to the end without being killed. Shouldn't be that hard.

Up Close and Personal - Kill 8 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1600cR

Shotgun,. Sword, Hammer, Melee. Grifball & Living Dead is where you'll mostly get these. Those games are, for the majority, Close combat. Any game can work though, provided you got your fist at the ready.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 14/11/2011 Single Wield

Single Wield

Earn 200 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking


Your Pistol kills are what you want here. Both Plasma & Bullet Pistol kills will count. The best way to get this challenge. In my opinion, SWAT. That pistol is a 1 shot headshot kill and SWAT will gladly get you a bunch of kills. Objective or Slayer, makes no difference. Any gametype will work in the long run, just make sure you've got a pistol to get the final blow with.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/11/2011

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

3000 for 50 kills, you can get that halfway through a game, unless there's a hidden catch with not being killed. Who knows, play whatever, it's an easy stuff.

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

Just the one assassination, so no need to worry about trying to find it. It'll eventually come during the games and then that's it. Best way to get it, have a speed, height and motion tracker advantage. Objective games.

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

Can't overly force this on. Play games you're good at and your friends are good at. That's all you can really do. Actionsack for more luck related games.

Deathless Package - Complete The Package on Legendary without dying - 4400cR

Not easy but not hard. If you just get to the end of the level and then save and quit before you finish. Once you've done that, reload the game and finish. Bit cheaty, but it works.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/11/2011

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

100, such a low amount. Other challenges, with Flat Tire in there, enjoy your long Firefight sessions.

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

This one is the biggest bugger of them all. I've always found that Arcadefight works best with 1 vehicle every round. Play it in doubles and destroy as many of the buggers as you can. Go in with a partner to even things up.

Golden Tree City - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in a Banshee, fast and low, while on New Alexandria, on Legendary - 4500cR

This one, somewhat awkward. Second time this has popped up and I don't think it'll be much nicer this time. Somewhere on this level, fairly low, is an always boosting Banshee (You can tell by the blue trails). Apparently the best place is near the club. I might have to try finding him and Recording a run through. No promises.

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

SWAT is very headshot based. Pistol & DMR, both good weapons. Snipers can also work so play that if you're better off with those weapons. If you need more time, Invasion is good, 5/6 tiers have weapons capable of headshots.
