Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/7/12

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
A hundred and twenty kills is about what you will score on average in a game in the Score Attack playlist. If you stick to gametypes like 2X Score Attack, Gruntpocalypse, Sniper, Rocket, or FRG Attack, you will likely hit about a hundred and twenty kills. There is also a high chance that you will fall just short of the number, however. If that happens, simply play a second game to secure the kills. If you are lucky, Crashsite will appear in matchmaking and you can get the kills you need and then die, or let the generator explode, to end the game.

Survivor - Earn 7 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
A Spree in Firefight Matchmaking occurs every ten kills. Once you hit fifty kills, you will have five sprees but the next spree will be coming at a hundred kills and then at five-hundred kills. This means that, to get seven sprees in a single game, you cannot stay alive the whole time. You will need to die on purpose to hit that seventh spree. Personally, I recommend dying after you hit fifty kills so you are maximizing all the spree potential. Since you only need seven, however, just make sure you get at least two more after you hit five sprees and the challenge is yours.

Huck It, Luck It - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Cloud, Tough Luck, and Catch on. - 2000cR
As usual, for these quick campaign challenge requiring a certain number of skulls on Heroic, Nightfall will be your best bet as you can just run through the level hardly even needing to stop. Use this guide to show you where to run and what paths to take to get through the level unscathed. All in all, this challenge and level should only take you about seven to ten minutes to complete.

Killing Spree - Earn a Killing Spree in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
A Killing Spree in multiplayer Matchmaking is five kills uninterrupted by death of the end of a round. You can get this in practically any playlist though it will be easier in certain ones. My advice is to play in the Living Dead playlist. If you are a survivor at the start, you have a really good chance, depending on the map, of getting a Killing Spree. You just need to kills five Zombies in a row before they get you and the challenge is then yours. It is a simple as that.

  1. Anyone know if I.D. Solstice is still achievable once you die during the mission? Without Iron?

    15 mins
    Hey man, If you look at todays daily challenges, one is called I.D. Solstice, it uses mythic thunderstorm tilt and tough luck skulls. when I die once in it, my challenges screen has the challenge blocked off in grey, but iron isnt enabled? If I end game and reload a new Mission Start of Winter Solstice the challenge turns white. Can I still get the challenge by finishing after I die? I've restarted loads of times.
