Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/2/12

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
The focal point of today's challenges will be the "Flat Tire" and the "A Heroic Breach" challenges. The other two challenges today are basically freebies, the first one of which being this one. A hundred and twenty kills in Firefight Matchmaking is typically what you would get in a single game of Firefight. You will be playing three or four games for the "Flat Tire" so there is no reason to worry about this challenge. Move on.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2343cR
This is easily one of the more irritating challenges that Halo Reach has seen and will likely try your patience today unless you now the right gametypes and maps to play in. You want to aim for the map Holdout as it is the only map to have a naturally spawning vehicle. Every two to four minutes a Banshee will spawn on the map. You can get from two to five Banshees to spawn per game if you make the clock tick down to zero. You need to play Sniper, Rocket, or FRG Attack as vehicle kills in the 2X Score Attack playlist do not count towards the challenge. Expect this challenge to take three to four games.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
This is another freebie challenge as you will get a bunch of streaks in Firefight Matchmaking. A streak in Firefight Matchmaking is ten kills in a row uninterrupted by death and should be easily attainable in any of the games you play today. Just focus on the other challenges today and get the free easy credits.

A Heroic Breach - Kill 100 enemies on Corvette on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
This will require a single game on the level Corvette in Firefight Matchmaking. I would suggest that you stay in the Score Attack playlist as you can easily score a hundred kills in any of the gametypes it might give you on Corvette. Clearly Gruntpocalypse and 2X Score Attack would be your preferred gametypes but you will be stuck with what Matchmaking offers up to you when the map shows up.

  1. BTW:
    Installation 04 also spawns banshees, in addition to Holdout (Anniversary DLC Required).
    Occupied turrets on any map count as enemy vehicles.

  2. Didn't know that about Installation 04. Good to know however and I will include it in later guides. Thanks for the heads up. I'm also aware of the turret bug, but it typically seems pretty rare that enemies actually use turrets so I typically do not mention it.
