Halo Reach Daily Challenges 28/01/2012

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

Simple enough as always. Just play whatever you want for the day. Though we do have quite a few MP challenges... all of them.

Throwing Fireballs - Kill 7 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1400cR

Moderately difficult. Plasmas work well as there's little avoiding them once they're stuck to you. Invasion has the long objective game time and the added bonus of knowing the rough location of your enemies and it's a double round game.

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

Swords, Hammers, Shotguns and your own fist. A bit of Grifball or Living Dead will give this to you easily.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 10000cR

A long grind here. The best thing to do is get with a group of guys who are good. Then just play the gametypes you are good at. then just keep going till you reach the 12 wins. As always try to go for the games where win/loss is greater than Draw (Objective games)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 27/01/2012

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

Any mode. It's all Multiplayer today so you may need to head out into Firefight to get the majority of this.

T-Hug It Out - Kill 7 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1400cR

Hammers, Swords, Shotguns and your own fists. All very good choices. Games of interest are Living Dead and Grifball. Lots of Chaos and easy killing.

Fourth Horseman - Earn 5 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2500cR

Honestly, look above one. Grifball & Living dead have the easy killings and chaos to give you many multikills. I bet you could get them all in one continuous spree.

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

Now, 15 kills without getting killed is a tough one. Stay away from the action, but close enough to get kills. Grifball is a bit too chaotic for this, slayer is hit and miss as is objective games. I'm going to go with Living Dead. If you start early, can get up high, use your pistol to pick off a bunch and keep your shotgun loaded when it counts, you might just manage to do this.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 26/01/2012

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

A game or two. Just start the game, load your guns and have fun.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking - 2800cR

Scoreattack x2 will give you a very Elite heavy final round. Other than that, Arcadefight also has a bunch of Heretic rounds that are useful.

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

Larger maps give vehicles more often. In arcade fight, Beachhead will give you Wraiths & Ghosts. Usually one per round, 2 if you're lucky but there's still a chance of getting nothing. Holdout has the Banshee that comes around every once in a while, you can bide you time and pick that off. On the plus side, the Banshee will appear in solo and it will respawn, so maybe 2 per game.

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

Use the bounce to your advantage. The EMP delayed explosion isn't as powerful so bounce it close so it explodes near or on them. Scoreattack x2 will give you easy Grunt & Jackal Kills with moderately easy Brute kills. Skirmishers are a bitch though.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 25/01/2012

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

Simple enough. you've got a weekly to do, or if you've already done that, you've got to win 15 games. So still no rush. If you can't be bothered with other challenges, Grifball speed time.

Katanarama - Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Arcadefight will give you an Energy Sword to spawn with. So find a Grunt and slice him up. Want to go solo? Scoreattack and Scoreattack x2 will give you some Sword wielding elites in the last round. Swap and stab. Then lay back and enjoy some Chimichangas... Chimicherries... Cherrychangas Chimicherrycangas pickle barrel kumquat... Sorry bout that.

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on - 2500cR

Nightfall. Run.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Just stick it out with the games and friends you love. Don't have either, just play the luck card in getting a good team or random games in Actionsack.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 24/01/2012

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

Simple enough, you've got a bit of everything for the other challenges, so this will just come as you get those. Though the quickest way to kill lots in a short time, some custom Firefight.

The House of Blue Leaves - Kill 177 enemies in a single Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic - 1300cR

Scoreattack just wont cut it. You need some Firefight. Jump into some doubles with a friend, or maybe just an unused controller and then hit up some Arcadefight. As many enemies as there are in regular Firefight, but double the kills for you.

The Little Guys - Kill 135 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder - 1200cR

Levels filled with Grunts: Winter, ONI & Exodus. Very Grunt heavy levels so enter these and lay waste to them all.

The Dream Shake - Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking - 4000cR

Living Dead, SWAT, Grifball. The easy kill gametypes. Doubles and more come very easily in these games, so play them and grab what you can.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 23/01/2012

A very generous helping of cR today. 15700cR in total, so grab what you can.

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

A single game of Scoreattack x2 or Many of the gametypes in Scoreattack will get you this. Gruntpocolypse will leave you a few dry though. Firefight it for an extra 1000cR or two.

Gunslinger - Kill 150 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 5500cR

Might be a good start to the weekly challenge, but that may be a slow and tedious process. Mix it up with some Grifball and Multiteam to grab a boost.

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

Winter Contingency is always brilliant. Over 600 rounds for your AR and an army of Grunts, Jackles and Skirmishers to destroy. Stick it on normal and watch them fall.

Just a Shower - Complete any Campaign mission on Normal or harder with Thunderstorm on - 4000cR

You can try merging this one with the above one, or maybe just a little running on Nightfall will do it.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 23/01/2012 Single Wield

Single Wield

Earn 200 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking


Once again, the time consuming but not all that challenging. Small arms are your pistols. Plasma Pistols are good at the shield drain but lack the killing power of the Magnum. Accurate headshots will knock your unshielded enemies down with a single bullet. You'll get a pistol in many gametypes, but the best way I've found, is SWAT Magnums (Or SWAT). Pistols for everyone and nice one shot kills. I'd say around 10 kills per game but you can get more or less, depends entirely on everyone else in the game.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 22/01/2012

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

Kill stuff in the game, doesn't matter how or where. Just do other challenges and then this one.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 12 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 10000cR

A nice lump of cR there. Almost as much as the weekly, but I don't think this one takes less than 5 minutes. You need to win these, so you'll play a few more than 12 more than likely. Play the games you're good at that are more likely to come out with a winner and a looser, not a draw. So Objective games are a nope, solo games (Zombies, Tumble Pit) best to avoid. Slayer games with your friends who are also good, is a good plan.

Heroic Court - Kill 125 enemies on Courtyard on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

None of the above until this map arrives. Then, try for Scoreattack x2, Scoreattack or Rocket Fight. Best shot of getting this in 1 run.

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

Nightfall, Long night or Lone Wolf. Filed to the brim with Elites. There's also a nice part before the jeep where there's about 5 Elites.
