Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/11/2011

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

After all the challenges, I believe that you'll still be short of 100 kills. The challenges are about getting small amounts of kills, or avoiding combat all together. So you can do whatever you want for this challenge. Put in some more MP to get the weekly, or just some Firefight to finish this challenge off easily.

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

Only 5 kills with a, DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle or Focus Rifle, that's a low amount. SWAT or Snipers in the Slayer mode will easily be enough time.

Stronger, Harder - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Famine, Tough Luck, and Thunderstorm on - 4000cR

The mission where you don't need to do anything but run? Nightfall. Kill a couple of Elites, A grunt or 2 and in less than 5 minutes you'll be watching the end level cutscene.

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

Speed, Stealth and Height. The 3 factors that can help you get this challenge. An enemy holding a Bomb/Flag will often loose a motion tracker and their speed, thus, an easy assassination. If you can get behind an enemy while they're fighting, you'll usually give them a surprise.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/11/2011

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

125 kills can be 10 games, could be 2. Pick the games you're good at and get you kills. A good challenge to assist with the weekly challenge.

Neuroscience - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2400cR

SWAT, Snipers are games that reward you for headshots. SWAT Objective games can help if you're limited by kill amounts. If you still can't, Invasion is the best shot. 24 Minutes and 5/6 tiers with a Headshotting weapon.

T-Hug It Out - Kill 6 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2400cR

Swords, Hammer, Shotguns and whatever else you can use to bludgeon your enemies. A Bomb, Flag, Skull or if you have none of those, your own Fists. Living Dead (Shotty & Swords) & Grifball (Melee, Hammers & Swords) are where I'd place myself.

A Solid Outing - Earn at least 15 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1500cR

Grifball can take you to 70 kills + in a single game, but the old trick if that isn't for you, Multi-team. Rumble Pit is also good, first to 25.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/11/2011

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

I think this one lies just outside the boundaries of one game of Scoreattack, but a second game is just an extra couple of thousand credits...

Scoped - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons - 2000cR

Which is a good thing as this challenge and the next challenge are closely linked and it gives you a bit of breathing room. DMR, Needle Rifle, Sniper and the Focus Rifle are Precision weapons. The FR is the only one to not get headshots. Any enemy can easily be dispatched, but a Gruntpocolypse works wonders...

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

Because if you miss a few headshots or need to switch to your Pistol or use some Grenades, it's just assist on the extra game you'll need to play to reach the 120 enemies...

Survivor - Earn 7 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Once you've done the Gruntpocolypse, you'll be at around 115 kills, 1-10 kills away from the final 120 probably. So with this one, get into some Scoreattack x2 and use your killing sprees and Shotgun sprees to rack up the 7 sprees in 20 kills. Maybe throw a sticky spree in too.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/11/2011

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

Simple again. A bit of Campaign and a bit of Matchmaking today so it's possible to be done with them before this. A simple Scoreattack game will take care of most of this though.

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

Nightfall, Long Night and Lone Wolf. These are the missions that work best. Just kill the Elites when they're in a group and revert, or just run around a lot.

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

Stay far enough away from the action to not get killed, but close enough to get the kills. Objective games work well, but the best route I've taken is Infection. Kill early and kill as many as you can.

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

Speed, Height or Stealth. These are your options. A person holding a bomb/flag can be slow and loose a motion tracker. Easy pickings for a quick sneak attack.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/11/2011

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

Any game mode. You've got 100 enemies in Firefight (1 game) and 7 games of Matchmaking, I'd say in total, on an average you'd reach just over 190 kills getting the challenges today (Looking at Slayer gameplay)

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol - 2500cR

Gruntpocolypse is where you should go. The pistol will nicely hit the heads of those Grunts. Just remember to keep it loaded, pass by the resupply box once in a while.

Fourth Horseman - Earn 4 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Double kills are worth one, A triple kill on top is another one on top and so forth. So 1 Triple kill is worth 2 double kills. Something with many enemies, Chaos and easy kills (Multiteam, Rumble pit, Infection, SWAT and Grifball)

The Magic Number - Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Stay in a game, play it till the end and get a boost on the weekly challenge. Tat's all you need to do.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/11/2011

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

A simple easy challenge. Same ass always, 100 enemies is less than a game or Scoreattack and with a mixture of these challenges, I'd guess you'd be breaking 200 by the end of the day.

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

Grifball & Multi-team for the chaos and easy multikills. Any gamemode where you're killing your enemies works just as well though. I'd say anything from 7-2 games depending on what you play.

Killagruntjaro! - Earn 7 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Multikills, as in Double kills. If you The enemies always spawn in groups of at least 4, so there's your Overkill with a Rocket launcher and that's 3 down. Gruntpocolypse is another easy one for this.

Be Vigilant - Score 80,000 points in any Campaign mission without dying - 3000cR

Start yourself in Long Night of Solace Rally Point Alpha as close to the LASO difficulty as you can. The points will rack up very, very quickly. Black eye, Tough Luck, Catch, Iron and Fog mean nothing in this part for this challenge (you're not allowed to die, so Iron is a must ave for extra points), and the Banshees just drop like flies after a few bullets.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 21/11/2011 Clear Eyes, Full Hearts

Clear Eyes, Full Hearts

Win 50 games in multiplayer Matchmaking this week


This one, is a bugger. You should pace yourself here. This is the one that always makes me want to give up the 100% weekly challenge.

Stick to the games you're good at and that can be won quickly. Importantly, games that end in a Win/Loss more frequently than a Draw. Objective games (More so Invasion) can take a long time and end in a draw.

If you get a team of 4 of you, you can work together better than a group of 4 individuals.

I'll be spending my time in Grifball and hopefully blast through as many as possible.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/11/2011

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

Any game mode. Very simple, a bit of Firefight works wonders. If I might suggest the new Anniversary map. A very nice level to get this on.

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

Play and win. Can't say much more to this one. Play what you want.

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

Corvette is the best I've seen for this. Monster rooms where Grenades can pool, large explosions kill them all. Remember to keep stocked up though, make a run to get some once in a while and Grenades shot on the floor that kill enemies count towards this.

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

Start from point Alpha, Pick up the Rocket launcher from the ODST and be holding down the Jet pack (Use) button as you get the kill. Find a group (Might I suggest the group of Grunts with Fuel Rods in the entrance to the Landing pad building) Blow them up, revert to saved.
