Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 1/31/11

From now on, unless I forget, I will be posting my guides to the Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges here on my blog.  If you can, please subscribe to either my blog or my Examiner articles and support these postings.

Fourth Horseman - Earn 6 multikills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1200cR
  • ·         Getting six multikills in a single game is quite easy.  Remember that if you got, say, an Overkill, that counts as three multikills, so reaching six is not that difficult.  Griffball will get you this challenge in one game, easy.  Multi Team, SWAT, Living Dead, and Team Objective will also be good for this challenge if you dislike Griffball.  Use you grenades and don't be afraid to get killed going for the multikill.
No 'I' in Team - Earn 6 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1200cR
  • ·         Earning six assists in a game is easy if you don't go for any kills until the challenge is done.  You can go to team Sniper and only shoot at the bodies of opponents while your team finishes him off.  You can also go to Multi Team and get this challenge.  If the map is small enough, run up to the center of the map and melee someone to take down their shields and then let him kill you.  Some will kill the other player right after and, voila!, you have an assist.  Rinse and repeat how every many times necessary.
T-Hug It Out - Kill 15 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 3000cR
  • ·         Three weeks ago, this would have been a difficult challenge.  Now, with the Griffball playlist active, this has become a simple task.  Just load up Griffball and this will be done in one game.
Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1000cR
  • ·         This challenge requires you to get five kills in a lone match with heavy weapons.  This means, Spartan Laser, Rocket Launcher, Fuel Rod Cannon, Grenade Launcher, or Plasma Launcher.  I think the Concussion Rifle might also work here.  Head for Multi Team or Team Objective and these should be doable.  They might take a while but go for objective based games so you have extra time.  Vote for Rocket Race whenever you can.  Whenever someone is off their mongoose, nail them with a rocket.

Weekly Challenge:

That's Dedication, Holmes - Complete 77 games in multiplayer Matchmaking this week. - 11000cR
  • ·         No crazy tricks or strategy here.  Just complete seventy-seven games this week and the eleven thousand credits are yours.  If you want to do it on a per-day basis, that is eleven games a day this week.  Now games, like SWAT tends to have the shortest time, but can become quickly aggravating.  Pick a playlist you like but don't get frustrated.  Mix it up if you can.
Can also be seen on here.

There is something here, in this place.....

I swear this place will become active again. 

I have been writing a lot, but not blog type stuff.  That will soon change though.  More recently I have found myself stumbling as I write and thinking of stuff that has nothing to do with my subject.  That stuff will be going here.  As well, I will be posting guides for all the daily challenges here alongside my postings on  I did move up a little and am now dishing out Halo news nationally instead of just in the DC area. 

Yah me.
