Halo Reach Daily Challenges 18/02/2012

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

It's killing stuff, in Firefight. Not that hard. Go for Scoreattack or Scoreattack x2 for the one game.

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

SWAT, Snipers or anything that spawns you with a DMR, Needle Rifle, Focus Rifle or Sniper at any point. It's not all that hard to get 5 kills.

Leadership Element - Kill 45 enemy leaders in the Campaign today - 2200cR

Elites are what you want to aim for. Long Night or Lone Wolf are the good levels.

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

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 17/02/2012

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

Simple enough with all the other MP challenges today.Grifball for speed as always.

Go Right Ahead Folks - Earn a First Strike in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 2000cR

The more rounds, the better. Grifball has 3-5 rounds so if you charge in quickly you can get a quick kill. Even if you die you still got your challenge.

Make a Wish... - Earn a Running Riot in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 5343cR

An impressive 15 kills. One way to get this is to play something like Living Dead. Lopsided battles work well. Just kill early and don't be risky. Use that shotgun. Other games such as Grifball can work. Grab the bomb and perform hit and runs.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 5343cR

Just play the games you are good at and win them. No magic tricks here. Avoid Objective games (Invasion, Assault) and FFA games (Living Dead, Rumble Pit)

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 16/02/2012

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

You got tonnes of Firefight tonight, so enjoy this.

Just Holdout - Kill 1000 enemies on Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking - 3000cR

Another major number, just Singleplayer it in Scoreattack and keep selecting Holdout. Then fight.

On the Sixth Respawn... - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game with fewer than 5 deaths - 2000cR

Play it safe with range. You can do some Gruntpocolypse to play it safe.

Same as Holdout, just less.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 15/02/2012

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

Any game mode, and once again we got a bit of everything today. Easily more kills in total from the other challenges.

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

Solo it in Scoreattack and keep saying nope till you get this map. Then you'll need to do a couple of runs because I don't know of any solo Firefight gametype to give you more than 130 (apart from Original life based, but that takes so long, there's no real point if you're going for speed).

Cannon Fodder - Kill 75 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today - 1100cR

The lowest of the low. Grunts are what you want. Exodus and Winter Contingency are filled with the buggers.

Multiplier - Earn 2 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game - 1000cR

Either a Double Double, or a Triple is all you need. Not challenging really. Easy kill games such as SWAT, Living Dead or Grifball will be nice and easy, but other games don't have it all that much harder. Grab a power weapon and use grenades wisely.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 14/02/2012

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach - 5343c

Any game mode and a bit of everything today. Firefight will boost you high, mix it in with running through missions and beating up other players with your fists, not much of a challenge.

A Friend in Need - Earn 10 assists in Firefight Matchmaking - 1000cR

Partner up in doubles and talk to your friend on what needs to be done. Plasma Pistols for shielded enemies and a few well placed bullets for everything else.

L.D. Exodus - Complete Exodus, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on - 5343cR

Get to end, save and quit, restart from final checkpoint. Not difficult. Also, LASO guide

Close Talking - Earn 20 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR

Grifball, Living Dead, or any gametype where you can get up close and kill them with a Shotgun, Hammer, Sword or your own fist.

Halo Reach Weekly Challenge 13/02/2012 Not Lough, High

Not Lough, High

Earn a score of 250,000 in any mission in the Reach Campaign


So, the secret behind this one, LASO on Long Night of Solace. You can start from Rally Point Alpha, or you can try working your way up from the beginning. It's not a long stretch bit it's not a cake walk either. Remember, starting from a Rally Point will cut your multiplier, but if you can destroy enough Banshees, Seraphs and Phantoms, you should be fine.

Here's your LASO Walkthough. Enjoy this challenge. If I'm right, no more than 30 minutes.

EDIT: After a few attempts... While a Near LASO style of play is needed. I think we need a bit more for this. Remove the Iron Skull and start from the beginning maybe? When I get it, I'll let you know.

EDIT 2: Figured it out :D

New Alexandria. Some people got it half right, the best way to go around it, is to do nearly all the level, then get the Pelican/Phantom and get an AI gunner in it. You're Practically invincible, the Banshees are unlimited and you can bugger off and do whatever you want for a bit. Might be worth saving and quitting once you reach this point to reset the timer and get bonus multipliers. To get a gunner, all you need to do is eject some people from a Falcon, fly away quickly, then hold your nose right in front of them when you're in the Dropship.

Just remember to set it as hard as possible. I wanted to blast through and test it, I'm getting 150 per Banshee kill on Normal, No Skulls.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges 13/02/2012

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

Any. We got a bit of everything today, so enjoy a bit of everything. Firefight will boost this rather high and the multiplayer will

Golden Opportunity - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder - 5343cR

BOB list. I still say the one at the beginning of Nightfall is easiest.

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

Arcadefight gives you a Sword, Shotgun and Sniper as starting weapons. All these are spreeable weapons. Mix it in with killing sprees and this is an easy challenge to get.

Credits for Completion - Complete 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2800cR

Start, finish, done.

I'd like to apologise for the lack of updates. I ended up becoming rather ill on Saturday and didn't really do all that much. I'm better now so I'll update this place later.
