Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/30/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!  Have any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 1350cR
A hundred and eighty enemy kills is a pretty simple task. The trick is Firefight or Campaign which will yield a lot of kills really fast. You should amass a decent number of kills from the multiplayer challenges for today, and you can easily finish this challenge off if you have yet to complete the Weekly challenge. Get to it.

No 'I' in Team - Earn 6 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1500cR
As usual, Multi Team is the best stop for assists. No other gametype will help you get more. Games like Crazy King are perfect because you know where everyone is heading. Spam the AR into the crowd or run in and throw some melee hits. Grenades work wonders too, but can also be too lethal. Pick and choose your tactics wisely. This may take a game or two.

Came From Behind - Perform 3 Assassinations in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1200cR
Team Snipers still holds up as being one of the best way to get Assassinations, dependant on the map. Large maps, like Hemorrhage, do not lend themselves well getting assassinations but small maps, like Pinnacle or the Cage, will provide ample opportunities for Assassinations. Always best to assassinate an opponent in the air or on a angled platform for faster Assassinations. Remember that you just need three.

Participation Counts - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1200cR
Lots of game completion or game winning challenges this week. And this is just another one for the list. Four games is quite easy and will be done before you know it. The "Came From Behind" and "No 'I' in Team" challenges will probably take you about four games or more. If you finish early, just play gametypes that you like or play with friends until the challenge pops.

Two days left for the Weekly Challenge. See how to get it done here.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/29/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!  Have any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 1125cR
Expect to have at least sixty or so kills after completing the rest of the challenges today.  You are going to end up waiting on the three matchmaking wins, but remember that you need to get kills anyway.  How you close out your remaining kills is entirely up to you.  Personally, a game of Gruntpocalypse will get it done really quick.  But you can stick to Multiplayer if you are in a groove.

Close Talking - Earn 30 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1250cR
As usual, this is best done in Grifball, practically every kill you receive will be close quarters combat.  And, typically, you can score thirty or more kills per game depending on the match-up of the teams.  The game lasting five rounds greatly increases your chances of hitting thirty kills.  But, please, do not spawn camp.  That ruins it for everyone.

Go Right Ahead Folks - Earn a First Strike in multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1000cR
This is actually another great reason to play Grifball.  The awarding of First Strike medals does not go by game, but by round.  Grifball can, at most, give you five rounds to get that first kill.  You best bet is to charge toward the center and hope you do not get betrayed.  This might take a game or two but you can also head to Living Dead which had three rounds.

Un, Deux, Troix - Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1450cR
Now, I typically hate the "Win (X) games" challenges.  This one I am OK with.  Three is a small enough number that is should not drive you too insane.  I know that this will still end up taking me like eight matches, but I never get good teammates.  If you have friends you play well with, try to get them online and in a game.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/28/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!  Have any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

One Spartan Army - Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
We have run into this challenge before and most of you should know the drill by now.  This will take you four games of Score Attack.  The first three games can be whatever you want, but make sure you get every kill you can (Normally about a hundred and twenty).  Gruntpocalypse in normally the best for this.  My advice is for that last game to be Crashsite.  Get the number of kills you have remaining and then you can die or you can let you Generator explode.

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 50 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Pistol. - 1000cR
Another simple challenge for today.  You can either get this done fast or spread it out over the four games of Firefight you will be playing.  This is another reason I highly recommend Gruntpocalypse.  Grunts are the weakest enemies and will therefore be taken down easiest by the pistol.  This one will be finished before you know it, so do not worry about it either.

Heroic Spelunking - Kill 150 enemies on Glacier on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1125cR
Now, this challenge will have you playing two games of Firefight on Glacier.  Personally, I love this map.  Why it was not on the map list when Firefight Matchmaking first started, I do not know.  Like in the campaign, the whole level just lends itself to killing Covies in a fastidious manner.  The DMR allows you to completely own the map, but do not be afraid to use the Pistol for the "Be Their Huckleberry" challenge. 

Killagruntjaro - Earn 7 multikills in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 1000cR
I'm not going to write a whole lot for this one.  Easy way to get this is to use the Target Locator during Gruntpocalypse on a crowd of Grunts.  Enough said.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/27/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!  Have any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1100cR
I will be urging you to play Multi Team for the "Light Fuse, Run Away" challenge.  If you do stick to Multi Team, this challenge will probably take two games.  Remember that even if you get an objective game, focus on killing the enemy.  You might piss off some teammates, but you will get this challenge done really fast.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 100 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
A single game of Gruntpocalypse will net this challenge for you.  The only weapons you are given are capable of headshots and you have a hundred and twenty enemies.  You will definitely need to hold off that urge to use grenades on the little bastards or to run up and melee them.  Keep distance and aim for the head.

Clip It. Share It. - Make a clip from your Local Files and upload it to your File Share. - 1250cR
I have to laugh a little because this challenge gives you the most credits today.  This is also the easiest challenge that Bungie puts up.  Making a clip is quite simple, just hit the record button while in theater mode, but you do not have to make a clip for this challenge, you just have to upload one.  Go to the File Browser and then go to Local Files.  Then go to Film Clips and pick one to upload.  Make sure you play a game after uploading so the challenge sticks.  Sometimes that has issues.

Light Fuse, Run Away - Kill 4 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer matchmaking game. - 1000cR
Your best chance for this is Multi Team and specifically an objective game in that playlist.  King of the Hill will give you the most chances for Grenade kills.  Simply hang back from the hill and frag the area once you see players going for it.  It is also imperative that you pick a small map since that will make your grenades the most effective.  Do not be surprised if this challenge takes two games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/26/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitterHave any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1100cR
A simple recurring challenge that we have seen many times.  You will probably end up playing two games on Outpost due to the enemy count, so just relax and take this challenge easy because, well, it is easy.

Going Outpost-al - Kill 125 enemies on Outpost on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1100cR
This is really going to force you to play to games on Outpost if you go for Score Attack.  Typically, you get a hundred and twenty enemies per Score Attack game.  Even if you get a drop-pod, that will only get you up to a hundred and twenty-four.  If Phantoms come on the last round, you can try and shoot the turrets for kills, but that is highly dependent on you gametype.

Either way you will come up bit short and need a second game.  The other option is that you can Firefight Arcade or Limited.  The only issue here is getting the map to come up, plus getting a gametype that lends itself to getting kills on that map.  Sniper Fight is a great option but I would steer away from Rocket Fight.

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal. - 1500cR
Every week after a LASO challenge Bungie loves to have us go back and play that mission for some reason.  Last week the challenge was Exodus, which means that today we are playing Exodus.  This will be much simpler though.  Just remember that you must be pressing the Jetpack button as you get the kill, not falling.  Turn on scoring and you should get a Firebird medal every time a kill counts.

Load up Rally Point Alpha and you have two options.  You will first run into a cluster of enemies, Grunts, Brutes, and a few Jackals.  You can take them out and move on to get the rest of the kills or you can restart once you take them out.  Either way should get you to thirty-five kills pretty fast.

Participation Counts - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1200cR
Now, this I much greatly prefer over the win this many games challenges.  Me completing a game is not contingent on good teammates.  This is just for games so I encourage you to play something you like, play with some friends, or pick a gametype you have never played before and try it out.  It can't hurt.  Physically, that is.

Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 4/25/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!  Have any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

One Spartan Army - Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Four-hundred kills is nothing to bat an eye at.  Normally, a Firefight Matchmaking game brings in a hundred and twenty kills.  This means you will be playing at least four games.  For the fourth game, I would recommend playing Crashsite.  Once you hit the required total, just let the generator explode or die.  Gruntpocalypse is a very easy way to get kills but I will also encourage players to play co-op due to the Weekly Challenge.

That Pink Mist - Kill 70 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
The Firefight playlist has changed some since we last had this challenge.  Players can no longer pick up weapons in Sniper, Rocket, Grenade, Fist, or FRG Attack/Fight.  This means that you will want to aim for FRG Attack since your starting weapons are the Fuel Rod Gun and the Needler.

Now, this will probably take several games.  The only waves you can really use the Needler on effectively are the Brutes and the Elites.  The Grunts will die before the Supercombine explodes and the Skirmishers/Jackals either have the shields or are too agile.  Do what you can in those waves and grind it out while getting the four-hundred kills for "One Spartan Army."

Neuroscience - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1200cR
It figures that, today, they would force you to also play multiplayer to get all the challenges.  My advice for this challenge is SWAT, Snipers, or Team Objective.  Any of these can net you ten headshots easily.  Remember for Team Objective, if you cannot find a DMR, you can use the Magnum, or cut through their shields with the AR and the switch to the Magnum for the headshot.

Five-time Champ - Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1750cR
Between the four games of Firefight you will have to play today, this challenge will probably end up being a pain.  It is requiring five wins, not just five games played.  This is all up to personal preference.  Play whatever gametype you play best in.  You should personally know what gametypes you tend to win in, so stick to those and you should be fine.

Endure: The Return - Complete four sets on any Firefight Map in co-op play on Heroic or harder. - 10000cR
Now this is an interesting challenge.  Four sets is quite a long match.  A set is composed of three rounds (four if you include the bonus), and a round is composed of five waves.  As you can tell this is multiplying to quite a bit.  If you include the bonus rounds, you are talking about sixty-four waves of enemies.  Doing this Co-op makes that much easier, at least.  Now, nothing on this challenge says it needs to be done in a single game, but I am going to assume that it will need to be done in a single game.  It just seems like something Bungie would do.

As well, the challenge says nothing about Matchmaking and, indeed, the only place this might be possible is Firefight Limited, but you would be fighting the clock.  And if the game is offline, that means you have full control.  You can make yourself invincible, make all the waves Grunts, get unlimited ammo, change the skull effects for each round and set.  There really is a lot of possibilities and that makes this challenge much less daunting.  You can even just turn on a second controller and play by yourself.  And a large amount of respect to any players who do this the hard way, either in Firefight Limited or in a standard game of Firefight.

If you have any helpful tips such as maps or gametypes, post them below.   Once I get back from work, I'll put together a more in-depth guide and maybe a video.  But the video will not be up till tomorrow at the earliest.

Edit: Two of our readers have you covered!  Check the first three comments below from Greg and Matt for some really easy ways to get the Weekly challenge done.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/24/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitterHave any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight matchmaking. - 1100cR
This should get done in a single game of Firefight.  You will be playing two, however, if you plan on going for the "Flat Tire" challenge.  This might actually take two games if some Covies accidentally kill themselves.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 100 infantry-class foes in Campaign today. - 1250cR
This can be done on many levels, but Tip of the Spear will probably get it done.  Infantry is a dubious moniker.  I am assuming that this does not correspond enemy leaders (i.e. Elites and specialist enemies.)  Have a level that is great for this challenge?  Tell us below!

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
This will be the most annoying challenge of the day.  Like usual, Sniper, Rocket, or FRG Attack on Holdout is your best chance if you make the game last as long as possible.  If you pick Rocket or FRG Attack, do note that you will have to jet-pack right in front of the Banshee and shoot it or it will avoid all your shots. 

Now, you can get five banshees in a single game, but that is very rare.  Three is the more likely number and what you should be aiming for every game.  That means this challenge will take two games of Firefight.  Aim for that and you should be fine.  Reader mat-tyk also indicated that killing a Brute on a turret counted as a vehicle kill.  Thanks for the heads up!

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on. - 2500cR
Alone with the Iron skull on means that the mission will reset every time you die.  This can be an absolute pain and it is why I highly recommend running Nightfall for this challenge.  (See my Nightfall LASO guide.)  It takes five minutes and is easy as hell.  

You can also try to do this while going for the "Cannon Fodder" challenge, but I would recommend getting it done quickly on Nightfall and then getting your infantry-class kills.  As well, if you have yet to complete the Exodus: LASO challenge (today is the last day!), completing it today, alone, will net you this challenge.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/23/11

Please follow the blog and/or follow me on twitter!  Have any ideas or comments about the challenges?  Post them down below!

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 1000cR
Not a hard number to reach for the day.  If you run through Nightfall for the "Just a Shower" challenge, then the other challenges will not get you to a hundred kills.  Sad, but true.  If need be, load up a game of Firefight, Grifball, or Campaign and get those last kills you need.  Or, you can just keep playing as you normally do and enjoy the weekend.

Pass the Rock - Earn 20 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1500cR
Now it has been a while since we saw this one.  I seriously hope it is not still messed up like it was the first time this challenge came down the pipe.  (Only assists before your first death in the game would count.)  Anyway, there are several options for those going for assists nowadays.
Multi Team is probably the best.  You have nine different people you can damage, and there are eight different players who can finish a target off and get you an assists.  You do not need to communicate too much, but you do need to go to the high traffic areas.  If you are willing to communicate with your team and stay near them, then this challenge is super-easy.  Just suppress that instinct to go in for the kill.

Not as Clumsy or Random... - Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1000cR
This is another very easy challenge and can be done in virtually any playlist, ignoring Grifball of course.  You do not need to play SWAT or Snipers just for this challenge.  You should be able to get it while going for "Pass the Rock."  Pick maps where you know the DMR spawns or pick games with DMR starts (there are no DMR starts in Multi Team).  Grind out those five kills and then go back to Assist hunting.

Just a Shower - Complete any Campaign mission on Normal or harder with Thunderstorm on. - 2000cR
This one is not particularly hard, you just have to pick the right level.  Nightfall is the fastest, by a mile (See the LASO guide for how to run through the level in five minutes.).  Since this only needs to be done on Normal, however, you can probably just do a mission you enjoy and polish it off pretty fast.  As well, if you have yet to complete the Exodus: LASO challenge for the week, doing it today will net you this challenge as well.

Only two days left to beat Exodus on LASO difficulty.  See how here.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/22/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!

Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1100cR
Overall, today's challenges are pretty easy.  All of them require you to play multiplayer matchmaking (Yesterday, it was Firefight, so it will probably be Campaign tomorrow.) and are pretty straight forward.  Thirty kills is not at all hard to meet and, if you play Grifball for "Close Talking," you will get this done fast as well.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1000cR
This will be the most challenging one of the day.  Ordnance weapons include Rockets, Grenade Launcher, Concussion Rifle, Fuel Rod Gun, and the Plasma Launcher.  One map that has at least two of these is Sword Base.  Getting either of these weapons in a game of Multi Team should give you a rather good chance of hitting three kills.  You can also try for Rocket Hog Race.  Taking out an entire other team while you are the side passenger should do it as well.  The latter option will be much harder, however.

Better, Closer, Warmer - Earn at least 10 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1200cR
Now this really clocks in as the easiest challenge of the day.  I would imagine that most players, barring an objective game, hit this number pretty much every single game.  This is a gimme.  You will get it while working on either "Explosive Ordnance Distribution" or "Close Talking."  It is that simple.  Find enemies and squeeze that trigger.  You do not need any more direction than that.

Close Talking - Earn 40 kills with close quarters combat in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1300cR
Whenever you see "close quarters combat" for challenges, you should be thinking Grifball.  Nothing can give you more kills in close quarters combat in so small a time.  I'm not going to tell you to spawn camp.  Seriously, you do not need to spawn camp to get a ton of kills.  If you have two good, evenly matched teams, the rounds will last and the kills will rack up.  Forty is doable in a single game, but plan for two games.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/21/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1125cR
"Scoped" requires you to kill two-hundred enemies.  Now, let us do some math here.  You will have at least fifty more kills than needed for this challenge.  Just another one to not worry about.  If you are not trying for all the other challenges today, this one will take a single game of Gruntpocalypse and a game of Crashsite to get the needed number of kills

A Simple Spress - Earn any spree in firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
It is almost comical to see this challenge nowadays because it is so easy.  You should get this, at least, during the challenge, "Just Hold On..."  Remember, it says any spree, so that can be a ten-kill spree or a five-kill weapon spree.  It can even be a spawn spree.  It does not matter.  Just let it spree. Let it spree.  Let is spree.

Just Hold On... - Complete 6 Rounds in Firefight Matchmaking without dying. - 1500cR
You best bet to get these done quick is to load up Firefight Arcade and pick Sniper Fight on Glacier or Beachhead.  Both of those have hiding spots (on top of the base and on the ledges, respectively) that lend themselves well to survival and getting kills. 

The trick about these challenges is this; If you die once, all subsequent rounds during that game no longer count if you survive them.  But this can be done in two games.  Just stay back and make distance your ally.  Any game where you start with a DMR or a sniper is a great plus.  Be warned, though.  If everyone on your team is trying to hide, you might not make it through three rounds.

Scoped - Kill 200 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons. - 1500cR
Two-hundred kills with precision weapons should be easy to do if you get the right games during "Just Hold On..."  Remember that precision weapons are the DMR, Sniper, Needle Rifle, and the Focus Beam Rifle.  The later, you will not see much of, but the rest should not be too hard to find.  Just grind this one down.  If you still need some kills after finishing "Just Hold On..." pick Crashsite or Gruntpocalypse.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/20/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 1000cR
Between the two games of Firefight, the Campaign missions, and the seventeen games of multiplayer for today, this challenge should pop pretty early on.  Nothing to worry about here.  I would focus on everything else you have to do today.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
I hate this challenge, but typically it requires ten vehicle kills.  Five kills is much less aggravating.  You want to load up Score Attack and pick either FRG Attack, Rocket Attack, or Sniper Attack on Holdout.  One of those three.  The goal here is to make the game-timer expire.  Typically, lasting the whole game will spawn three Banshees.  On occasion, five have spawned and other times four, but three is the norm.  Expect this to take you two games.

Leadership Element - Kill 45 enemy leaders in the Campaign today. - 1100cR
ONI: Sword Base supplanted Long Night of Solace as my favorite a week and a half ago.  That level on Heroic yielded forty-two Elite kills.  You can die a few times on purpose, respawn at the checkpoints, and repeat a few Elite kills to reach the required number of forty-five.  Do not be afraid the try other missions as well.  If you see one that is not extremely long and matches the kill count of ONI: Sword Base, put it in the comments below.

The Love of the Game - Complete 17 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1850cR
Wow.  Seventeen games.  On a weekday.  That is brutal.  The fastest games still tend to be Living Dead.  If you want them to go even faster, pick maps that do not have a lot of cover.  The faster the survivors die the quicker the game will be.  In fact, if you are a survivor, I would suggest letting the Infected get you and helping them kill off the rest of the survivors.  It makes the game that much quicker.  If you do not want to do Living Dead just stay away from large maps and objective gametypes.

Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/19/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!

The Challenges:

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1100cR
I cannot count the number of times we have seen this challenge. Most of you should know the drill. For the new viewers, a hundred and twenty kills is about the average number of kills a player would get in a single game in the Score Attack playlist. Gruntpocalypse is by far the easiest and maps like Beachhead, Outpost, and Glacier are good for staying alive.

One Game, One Spawn - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying. - 2000cR
I ran a small experiment this morning to see if you could get this challenge with a Crashsite game by letting the generator explode. The answer is no. Apparently, you have to successfully complete a game. So now I will go back to my standard recommendation of Gruntpocalypse on a large map. That is the easiest way to get this challenge.

The Little Guys - Kill 125 Grunt in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 1000cR
The last couple of time we have had this challenge, the required number of Grunt kills has been much higher. Here are the approximate number of Grunt kills on a few levels on Heroic: Eighty-seven on Winter Contingency, ONI: Sword Base had seventy, and Nightfall had eighty-two. As you can see, you can play anyone of these levels twice or play two of them to get this challenge. If you have a few deaths and are around a hundred or so, you can load up Lone Wolf and get some there to finish off the challenge as well.

Freelancing - Earn at least 21 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. 2100cR
Now here is one we have not seen in a while. My advice here is simple; Grifball. I know of no other playlist were you can rack up forty plus kills in a single game. Twenty-one kills is easily obtainable. If Grifball is not your thing, there is always Multi Team, Big Team Battle, and Lone Wolves. Remember, the more opponents and the smaller your team, the higher your kill count will probably be.

Halo Reach: LASO Weekly Challenge Guide: Part 6 – Exodus: II

Please follow the blog and/or follow me on twitter!

See Part I here.
Well, let's jump right into it.

Halo Reach: LASO Weekly Challenge Guide: Part 6 – Exodus: I

Please subscribe above and/or follow me on twitter!

Another two weeks have passed and it is now LASO time.  This week, we will be playing through the level Exodus.  Now, after the trials and tribulations of the last two LASO challenges (Tip of the Spear and Long Night of Solace), this week’s challenges is a refreshing change.  It is definitely easier but it still has its own challenges.

One of the more welcome changes for this level is the complete lack of Elites.  Brutes are a much easier opponent and tend to only have short-range weapons on this level.  The biggest threat on this level is any enemy equipped with a Fuel Rod Gun.  Make them a priority and all should be fine.  Another thing to remember is that this mission will have time where you have to grind down a lot of enemies.  Just be patient and stay calm.  Need to recap on what LASO means and some tips?  Look here and here.

Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 7/18/11

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter!

The Challenges:
More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking.-  1000cR
This should pop while you are going for "I'm Rubber, You're Glue" and "Three Dog Fight."  Just another one to not worry about.  The one that will take some time today is the new Weekly challenge and "There Are Many Like..." challenge.  Get these multiplayer challenges done fast so you can focus on Campaign.

I'm Rubber, You're Glue - Earn 1 stick grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1000cR
Earning a single sticky grenade should be easy.  You can actually only try for it the entire game on any playlist and you should be fine.  As usual, getting Elite Slayer in the Multi Team playlist is definitely your best bet.  But seriously, any playlist will do, except for Grifball, that is.  There are not grenades in that playlist.

There Are Many Like... - Kill 200 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today. - 1500cR

The best way to score this challenge will probably be playthrough of Nightfall and Tip of the Spear.  Both missions spawn you with precision weapons, Sniper and DMR respectively, and have plenty of ammo lying around  I would play the missions on Normal.  There are well over two enemies on the missions combined.  This will provide plenty of Targets for your DMR/Sniper.

Three Dog Fight - Earn a Triple Kill in Multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1000cR
Lots of easy challenges today, including this one.  I guess we are used to having to perform multiple Triple Kills, but you just need one today.  Grifball or Multi Team is probably you best bet.  SWAT would also be a great option if you being courageous.  This is simply three kills, each within four seconds of each other.  If you can get the good vehicles, I would also think this possible in Big Team Battle.

The Weekly Challenge:
Exodus: LASO - Complete Exodus, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO). - 15000cR
The Guide is up here!
