Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 3/26/12

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

The Challenges:
One Spartan Army - Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
On average, you will hit about a hundred and twenty kills per game in Firefight Matchmaking as long as you stay within the Score Attack playlist. This means that you will need to play at least four games to complete this challenge while scoring at least a hundred kills in each game. This is very easy to complete but is just time consuming. I would stick to 2X Score Attack and Gruntpocalypse as these gametypes always provide the most kills per game.

Blast Radius - Kill 75 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with grenades. - 2500cR

This will be a challenge that you will need to consciously try for over all of your Firefight games today. You will be playing about four games for the "One Spartan Army" challenge so as long as you hit about a twenty grenade kills a game, you should have this challenge taken care of. 2X Score Attack is great for this challenge as the double damage gives grenades a much more lethal range than normal. Aim for clusters of enemies as they spawn and you should have no trouble scoring the kills you need.

This is My Rifle... - Earn 40 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2600cR
To complete this challenge, you will need to spend some time in the Team Sniper or Team SWAT playlists as both of those playlists start you with the Sniper and DMR, respectively. You should be able to snag about ten to fifteen kills a game which means that this challenge will take you about three to four games to complete. Both of these playlists allow you to score kills quickly with one-shot, head-shot kills but, of the two, SWAT tends to have the faster games. Having a smaller map also helps speed up the games a lot.

Survivor - Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
The easiest way to complete this challenge is to play a game of Sniper Attack in the Score Attack playlists of Firefight Matchmaking. If your survive the entire game and get at least a hundred kills, that will score you a nice six sprees. However, that is definitely not enough for completion of this challenge and that is where the Sniper comes in. You will want to score fifteen kills with the Sniper which will give you three Sniper Sprees. This will get you up to nine Sprees and complete the challenge. If the Sniper Sprees do not count, you will need to die to get more spree to hit nine.

The Weekly Challenge:
Not Lough, High - Earn a score of 250,000 in any mission in the Reach Campaign. - 30000cR
So this is actually a very easy Weekly Challenge and since I have explained it before, I am just going to copy over the stuff and add to it. Here it is: We have had this Weekly Challenge once or twice before and it is actually really easy. What you are going to do is called Banshee hunting. You will load up New Alexandria on Heroic and turn on the Iron, Tough Luck, Catch, Famine, and Thunderstorm skulls with scoring on. Please note that if you do not turn on all these skull, you will get less points for each kill and this method will take long. Don't complain to me if you did this without the Iron Skull on and it took a long time.

Basically, you will go around killing every Banshee and Phantom that you can find. The challenge we had before had a lower point total to achieve, which therefore took a shorter time and got you a larger time bonus. This time, you will need to hit a total of two-hundred and fifty thousand point in game since you will lose the time bonus with how long this takes. Just fly around as this is really easy. It will take about thirty minutes or so, but that is still faster than getting it through a regular playthrough.  Look here for video of the method.
