Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/17/12

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

The Challenges:
More than a Handful - Kill 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2500cR
You will likely be playing ten to twenty games today. The average number of kills that a decent play registers in a game is like around twelve kills. Keep up this number and, even if you win ten straight games, you will pretty much have this challenge finished. If you finish the "Who's the Big Winner?" and "Make a Wish..." challenges and still need kills, jump into a game of Grifball and you should be able to rack up a good thirty or so kills.

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

You can earn a First Strike by scoring the first kill of a Round in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. You do not need to get the first kill of the game if the game has multiple rounds. Living Dead, which I am urging you to play for the "Make a Wish..." challenge, is a great gametype to do this in as the games have three rounds, which means three chances for you to score a First Strike.

Make a Wish... - Earn a Running Riot in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 5343cR
A "Running Riot" in multiplayer Matchmaking is fifteen kills in a row with a death or the end of a round. Have no doubts about it, this will be challenging to complete in any playlist, though it is definitely easier in some. Living Dead is likely your best bet or a playlist like Squad Slayer if you get really low-skilled opponents. I would also expect for this to take you a good handful of games to complete. Do not get frustrated and also do not worry about scoring wins in Living Dead as it is extremely difficult due to it being a free-for-all with eight players. Try to camp some but also stick near your teammates so they can guard your back.

Who's the Big Winner? - Win 10 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 5343cR
There is not much I can say for this challenge as a lot of it is up to personal preference. Some people are good in certain gametypes and some people are good in others. There really is no set standard for a gametype everyone excels at. There are some points, however, that can help you secure some wins. First off, play with friends. You will likely communicate better and work as a team more efficiently. Secondly, play in gametypes with only two teams no bigger than five players. The more players you add in, the more irrelevant you are, and more teams means lower odds that you are on the winning one. Thirdly, take breaks. You could possibly end up playing over twenty games today, or more if it does not go well. Take breaks so you do not get frustrated and start playing poorly due to your frustration.
