The Challenges:
Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 4000
This challenge, today, is very well covered thanks to the "Just Hold On..." challenge. Playing that many games of Firefight is practically guaranteed to get you well over four hundred kills in Firefight Matchmaking. You will also be playing Campaign for the "If It Bleeds..." challenge and Multiplayer Matchmaking for the "Neuroscience" challenge but the amount of kills from these are small enough that they will not really matter. Just focus on the Firefight one and this challenge is toast.

Just Hold On... - Complete 10 Rounds in Firefight Matchmaking without dying. - 1750cR
For some reason, it seems like all the easy challenges today give you a lot of credits, whereas this one irritating, grinding one only gives you so few credits that it is comical. Regardless, you will want to stick to the regular Firefight playlist for this challenge. I would go for gametypes like Arcade Fight or Sniper Fight on maps like Glacier or Beachhead. You really want large maps with long-range weapons. Now, if you stay alive the entire game and it is complete, you will complete three rounds for this challenge. This means you will need to play at least four games of Firefight to complete this challenge. As well, with these types of challenge, once you die in an early round, no other subsequent rounds will count until you start a new game. It's idiotic, but also how it is. If you are going to die, try to do it near the end.

If It Bleeds... - Find and kill the Gold Range-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Normal or harder. - 5000cR
This is pretty much the easiest challenge of the day but, damn, look at that credit amount. Five-thousand credits is a lot for one measly BoB kill, but these are some really easy credits. The easiest one to kill is on the level ONI: Swordbase. Basically, load up Rally Point Bravo on Heroic and drive back to Swordbase. Once there you will need to go up a ramp and, to the left of the top of the ramp, there is often a dual-wielding Elite that will count for the challenge, even though it is not gold. You can grab the Target Designator and kill him with it, but on Heroic he should not be too hard to take down by other means. As a note to BoBs, I am still working on a BoB video guide but it is taking some time and I have been working a lot. I do promise that it will be out sometime this summer. Probably early to mid summer.

Neuroscience - Kill 10 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2400cR
The easiest way to complete this challenge is to jump into the Team SWAT playlist in multiplayer Matchmaking. Team SWAT, for those who do not know, is a playlist in which you only ever have a DMR and a Magnum pistol. All player in the game have no shields, therefore making headshots very, very common. You need to headshots in a single game so do not be afraid to take two games on this one, though you should get it pretty quickly. You can also try Team Snipers if you are not a fan of SWAT.
