Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/1/12

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

The Challenges:
Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR
For some reason, only three Daily Challenge were posted today. I do not know why, but I am sure that a fourth one will be posted once someone on the West Coast wakes up, sees it, and decides to fix it. For this challenge, scoring fifty kills will be relatively easy if you stick to challenges like Grifball, which you will also likely be hitting up for the Weekly Challenge. You can actually get this done in a single game as you can get thirty to fifty kills in a game, but do not be surprised if it takes two games.

Supporting Role - Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1500cR
To get assists in Firefight Matchmaking, you will need to play with a teammate. Unfortunately, most people in Firefight Matchmaking do not talk so communicating with them that you are going for assists can sometimes be a complete pain. I would stick to Firefight Doubles and just stay near your teammate. Plug in the mic in the hope that he/she is talking but at least express your intentions. You simply need to do an enemy forty percent damage before your teammate kills it to record an assist. This might take two games, but if you are focused then it should be doable in one game.

If It Bleeds... - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Normal or harder. - 5000cR
This is the same challenge we had yesterday but you are getting more credits for it. Allow me to repost: The easiest Golden Ranger-class Elite, BoB, to kill in campaign is during the level ONI: Swordbase. Start from Rally Point Bravo on Heroic and quickly make your way up to the garage. To the left near where you actually start the level, there is a chance that you will see a BoB fleeing to this area. Use the Target Designator which is at the base of the ramp and you should have no trouble scoring this very easy kill for the five-thousand credits.

See the Weekly Challenge here.


  1. Fourth is:
    A Side of Huevos - 3000cR
    Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal.

    Seems straightforward.

    1. I have always hated that one. I mean hitting a grunt and it moves last second to get a body shot...ugg. Heoric seems to work better for it anyway.

    2. Yeah, the Elites are, oddly enough, the easiest ones to get headshots on as their heads are simply much bigger. That challenge typically requires and extra playthrough due to a lack of Sniper ammunition.
