Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 3/14/12

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 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
I am encouraging you to play a game of Grifball for "The Dream Shake" challenge and this should do very well in getting you towards those twenty-five required kills. A second game may be necessary but these twenty-five kills do not need to be in a single game. You can also have success with this challenge in Multi Team, Team Objective, Invasion, and Big Team Battle. You really should get this in one or two games.

Survivor - Earn 5 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 2000cR

This challenge will require you to play a single game of Firefight Matchmaking. In Firefight, you are rewarded a spree every ten kills, up to fifty kills. Clearly, that is just perfect for this challenge. You do not have to die or do anything crazy. Just get fifty kills in a row and you are set for this challenge. You can play either Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack , or even Crashsite, which will allow you to end the game by dying or letting the generator explode once you hit fifty kills.

Pod Kettle Black - Kill 15 Elite Drop Pods in The Long Night of Solace. - 2343cR
This is a fairly easy challenge but can only be done in a single place in the Campaign. You will need to load up the level "Long Night of Solace" on whatever difficulty you please, but start from Rally Point Alpha. This will start you flying the Sabre. Now, you need to get to the second phase of your space combat. One you are attacking the Corvette, Fly down below it and you will see Drop Pods fall from the center. These are what you need to destroy. The only come out every thirty or so seconds four at a time and they move very fast, but you should have no trouble scoring the kills.

The Dream Shake - Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 4000cR
For me, the best way to accomplish this challenge is in the Grifball playlist. You will need four Double Kills, which are sets of two kills made within four seconds of each other, and those come very often in Grifball. In fact, multikills in general are very common and you will need to make sure that you are pausing between the multikills to ensure that they are Double Kills instead of Triple Kills or higher. This challenge is also doable in the Multi Team playlist and in the Living Dead playlist.

  1. It is worth adding that the drop pods cannot be locked on with missiles, and that they have a high acceleration, rather than speed, meaning that they start slow. You can easily get three at a time by flying up from below the corvette, and firing away as soon as you see them appear. After the first few, you'll get the hang of it.
