Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/12/2011

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

This is the only FF challenge of the day, so to make it count, play some Scoreattack x2. This will give you enough enemies to take out, though I'd avoid Installation 04. It's a good map, but kills will be limited, don't want no AI stealing them from you.

Throwing Fireballs - Kill 2 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Multi-Team King of the hill works well. Lots of Carnage in a small area to act on. If you need a little more time to get the challenge then I might suggest some Invasion. Long game times and defined areas on where to capture. The whole 2 rounds thing helps too.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Grenade Launchers, Plasma Launchers, Concussion Rifles, the big stuff that goes boom really. Action sack has gametypes perfectly suited for this, Boom Ball, Dino Blasters, Splockets; these are the games you want.

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

Just play games you can play well at and win them. That's all I can say.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/12/2011

Sorry for being late, work has been hectic. Company Quake 3 games are rather fast paced.

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 5500cR

Simplicity. Grifball for Speed, anything else for anything else. Most of the challenges today are Grifballable but there are a couple of others that require a more delicate touch.

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

Objective games where you are faster than the objective holder work well. They usually don't have a motion tracker either, so feel free to run behind them for the easy kill.

Vengeance Found - Earn your 'Revenge' in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

Remember the guy who killed you, find him, the kill him. Grifball is rather easy as everyone is in the open.

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

Still Grifballing. Though Living Dead can be just as good, if not better. It's more one sided.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/12/2011

I feel the cR rewarded for these challenges are, a bit iffy.
1000 kills on a specific map = 3000cR,
125 on a specific map = 1100cR,
120 kills = 3200cR?

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

Simple. A game of scoreattack x2 on any map will do this, although with the other challenges, this one will most likely just fall into place.

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

Grunts are the ones who fall to headshots easily. DMRs & Pistols in Gruntpocolypse, there's no excuse for less than 90% Headshot rating (Unless you like explosives, then you are forgiven)

Fortified Court - Kill 1000 enemies on Courtyard in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Keep none of the aboving in Scoreattack until you get this map, then choose your gametype of choice from the list. 1000 kills is around 8 games. Depends on the gametype chosen. I'd stay SAx2 if possible, that gives you the most

Heroic Spelunking - Kill 125 enemies on Glacier on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1100cR

Same as above.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 21/12/2011

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

A few games of anything should do it for you. Grifball for speed but you'll want to hit up the other multiplayer challenge first.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 2400cR

Scoreattack x2 & Arcadefight are the games that'll give you the most Elites.

The Little Guys - Kill 75 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1000cR

The first levels, ONI and very much Winter will give you a tonne of Grunts to kill. Just go hunting.

Streaky Shooter - Earn 7 sprees in multiplayer Matchmaking - 1750cR

Can be done over many games, which is good. I'd say for speed, Living Dead. Zombie, Shotgun and Killing Sprees all at 5. So a few of those and you'll be done.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 20/12/2011

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

Any game mode, work for other challenges and this one will come in process.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 70 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher - 1250cR

Scoreattack x2 works nicely. Use the bounce to aim where the grenade explodes. Angle it right to get the enemies within the radius.

Points Pyramid - Score 100,000 points on any Campaign mission - 3500cR

Long Night of Solace from Rally Point Alpha, then as close to LASO (Legendary, All Skulls On) as possible. The more skulls and the harder it is, the more points. just fly around shooting the enemies, that's all there is to it.

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

SWAT & Snipers works well for this. Only 5 kills so 10% of a slayer game. Don't need headshots, but they help. You can play any gametype provided you've got a DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle or Focus Rifle.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 19/12/2011

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

A game of Scoreattack will get you this challenge, but there is another challenge that requires you to kill 150 enemies in Firefight so this one should come while getting that one.

Helping Hand - Earn 10 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2200cR

Over the next 24 hours(ish). Not too bad, Invasion and its Co-op Plasma Pistol fun should give you this challenge. Just call out target, focus fire and shield pop your way to victory.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 100 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today - 1250cR

Generally Grunts and lower class Jackals. So the first few mission, Winter & ONI are quite good for this one. Grenade fun time.

Heroic Holdout - Kill 150 enemies on Holdout on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1125cR

Scoreattack, and keep voting nope till you get to this map. Then choose a gametype.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 19/12/2011 Endure: The Return

Endure: The Return

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


Nice and simple, provided you can still do it the normal way. This challenge is one of the easiest. You don't need to be in Firefight matchmaking, this can all be done custom game style.

Here is the 1,000,000 points in 10 minutes gametype. Make a few adjustments, remove invisibility, and jump in with a friend or 2. Not got a friend? Use a second controller.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/12/2011

One Spartan Army - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR

A single game of anything in the Scoreattack playlist will work here. Focus on the other FF challenge.

Heroic Overwatch - Kill 150 enemies on Overlook on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Scoreattack and keep none of the aboving till you get the map you want. It'll take a couple of games of Scoreattack, but at least this way you can choose the map.

... Got a Triple Double - Earn 3 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Only Double kills count, triples, overs, not worth it for this challenge. Get 2 kills, stop, wait, kill again. Gametypes for this one are Living Dead and Grifball. All gametypes work fine though, these are just the easiest ones.

Multiplier - Earn 3 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 3000cR

Same as above, except the Triples & Overs are worth it nd there's no need to stop after 2 kills. Just keep on killing.
