Halo Reach Daily Challenges 02/12/2011

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

It's all multiplayer today, and if you do it right it'll only take one game. So this one might be best finished off in Firefight.

Close Talking - Earn 40 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2600cR

Hammers, Swords, Shotguns and your own fists are all you need for this challenge. Grifball is where I'd put it, this challenge will be a breeze. Only requires one game (Provided people aren't looking for the quick win, and even ten it's still possible)

Fourth Horseman - Earn 4 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 3500cR

Once again, easy stuff for Grifball. Just time your swings right and it's easy. All you need is a double kill to add to this and you can get a good 10-15 in a single game (Then upwards with the triples and overs). If you struggle on an even footing, maybe some Zombies will work, easy 1 hit killers with a shotgun.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 2000cR

Same as above really, kinda simple.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 01/12/2011

Wow, last month of the year. Start eating your advent calender chocolates guys.

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

Any game mode and you've got a lot of Firefight to work through today, about 2-3 games worth depending on luck and skill. Firefight's often the fastest way for this anyway.

Demon - Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Now, I'd suggest either solo in Scoreattack x2 (The last round is very Elite Heavy) of Some ArcadeFight in the Firefight Doubles playlist (Preferably with a friend). The Heretic waves are filled with Elites.

The T.G. Opposition - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun - 3000cR

Sticking with the Scoreattack x2, the weapon set you want is the Pistol/Shotgun. This is a good set as the pistol gives headshots and the shotgun gives, well, shotgun kills. So you can get this challenge and the next one easily at the same time) Choose when to use what gun (Shotgun for wave 1, 3 & 5, Pistol 2, 3 & 4)

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Now, Arcadefight gives you the Shotgun/Grenade Launcher and Sniper/DMR sets. Both useful for these challenges. As rounds can mix up, it's up to you to select what weapons for what round. Maybe start with the shotgun though, once some of those skulls go on, you don't really want to stay too close to the action.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 30/11/2011

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

Simple enough, kill a bunch of dudes. This'll probably add a few to your multikills too. Grifball or Multi-Team for some speed, other than that, play how you want.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 2343cR

Again? Well, yeah. Firefight Limited works well, usually get a bunch of Vehicles but it's harder than your regular Firefight, I'd say Arcadefight on a large map through Firefight Doubles.

...Is a Virtue - Score 60,000 points in any Campaign mission with less than 3 deaths - 4500cR

Patience is not what's needed here. Long Night of Solace from Rally Point Alpha with as many skulls on as possible and as hard as possible. Then, blow shit up.

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

Speed, Stealth and Height, get one and then jump on someone and assassinate them. Objective games work best due to the disadvantage of the objective holder (Speed, lack of motion tracker)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 29/11/2011

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

Very simple. You got a bit of everything today so how you tackle this is up to you. A game of Scoreattack is all you need.

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

If you enter Doubles with a friend and select ArcadeFight, you'll be very strong, take a lot of damage and be able to work together to take down targets together. Plasma Pistols on shields and a couple of bullets to the gut will help here.

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

Nightfall (Lots of Sniper Ammo and groups of Elites), Long Night (The ship is very Elite heavy) and Lone Wolf (Apart from a few Grunts at the beginning, practically all other enemies are Elites)

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

Remember last week? Find games you are good at and then play them.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 28/11/2011 Multiplicative


Earn 200 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking this week


I'm going with this challenged as I've already completed the Clear Eyes one already according to the site.

This is fairly easy. Each level up gives you another Multikill, so a 2 Double Kills is the same worth as a Triple Kill. Games filled with multikills? Grifball, Living Dead and Multi-Team are the games where I find they're most common. You can still get them in many other games just as easily (SWAT & Snipers, Splockets, anything where 1 hit kills are available) I just find those games work best.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/11/2011

A few, Glitches, I guess, with the challenges today. Apparently we have 5 Daily challenges, but one of them is a weekly, and the weekly challenge is last weeks weekly challenge.

You get that, I just about did. So I'll leave the weekly update for a bit.

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

Any gametype will work. Multi-Team and Grifball for speed though.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking - 2343cR

Blarg. Regular Limited Firefight will give a bunch of vehicles on the larger maps, but it's not as easy to kill them. Arcade fight usually gives 1 per Round, enter into doubles and horde the kills.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 200 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today - 3000cR

Winter Contingency gives you Grunts and a bunch of AR ammo. Really, do you need much else, just play normal and mow them down.

Fortified Court - Kill 150 enemies on Courtyard in Firefight Matchmaking - 2250cR

Scoreattack will allow you to choose the level easier, though it'll take a couple of games. Still easy pickings though.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/11/2011

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

You know the Drill. Firefight works best, and with the amount of enemies you need to dispatch for the other challenges, this is a no brainier. 2 Games of Firefight will do you up.

Take a Dip - Kill 1000 enemies on Waterfront in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Just a dip, 1000 kills is more like being thrown in at the deep end. Scoreattack is where you want to spend your time. Once you've entered SA, keep voting "none" till you get this map, then choose a game mode. Rinse, Repeat (About 8 times).

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

Some Killing sprees at 10, 20, 30 ,40 ,50 & 100 and then some Weapon ones at 5, 10 & 15. You might want to jump into some ArcadeFight. Snipers, Shotguns and Swords. 15 kills from each and that's 9 sprees, not including the Killing sprees on the way.

Make a Wish... - Earn a Running Riot in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 5000cR

This one is the toughy. 15 kills, no deaths. Best bet for this one, Living Dead. Play it smart, get as many kills as you can early on and stay far away from the action.
