Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/18/12

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

The Challenges:
Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
This challenge will require you to get a hundred and twenty kills in a game of Firefight Matchmaking. There is not a specific map, it does not have to be done in a single game, and the other challenges today will not help you get this challenge done. A typical game in the Score Attack playlist will get you a hundred and twenty kills. However, that is not a solid number and you can definitely end up with slightly less, forcing you to play a second game. Crashsite is the preferred gametype for a quick short game for a few kills. Once you have the kills you need you can die or let the generator explode to end the game.

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

Precision weapon kills are always easiest to get in either Team Snipers or Team SWAT as both of those playlists start with the Sniper and the DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), respectively. Five kills is not a lot either. No matter what gametype you pick, unless it happens to be SWAT Magnums, you will have this done in a single game as both gametypes are set up for one-shot, head-shot kills. The only thing you actually have to do is pick your poison. Good luck and remember to aim for the head.

Leadership Element - Kill 45 enemy leaders in the Campaign today. - 2200cR
Enemy leaders in the Reach Campaign, which you will need to kill forty-five of today, are pretty much Elites. No other enemy in Campaign counts as a leader. The best missions for this are ONI: Swordbase and Long Night of Solace, once you land on the Covenant Corvette. ONI Swordbase is, in my mind, the better option as it is the easier level. You will likely either need to continue on to the next level, which for Long Night of Solace is completely devoid of Elites, or repeat the level until you have hit the required kills. Either option is viable and pretty simple.

Just a Shower - Complete any Campaign mission on Normal or harder with Thunderstorm on. - 4000cR
Since this just requires quick completion of a level with the Thunderstorm Skull on, your best option is to run the level Nightfall since it can be done in under ten minutes. Follow the path shown in this guide and should have no trouble completing the level in ten minutes or less. Do not worry about trying to score enemy leader kills for the "Leadership Element" challenge since that will make Nightfall much more difficult and defeat the point of "running" through it in the first place.
