Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 5/8/12

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

The Challenges:
Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2343cR
You should be covered for this challenge. If you get the "Flat Tire" challenge in a single game, which likely will not happen, you will get a hundred and twenty kills. Then you can follow that up with the "A Side of Heuvos" challenge which will nab you another sixty kills. A hundred and twenty plus sixty is a hundred and eight. As well, you will have all the kills from "A Side of Heuvos" that are not headshots and all the kills you will score working on the "Sticky Icky Icky" challenge. This is well taken care of.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Since the number of enemy vehicle kills required is so low, and since Firefight Arcade has been tuned to that drop-ships are not coming every wave, your best bet for this challenge will be to play the level Holdout in the Score Attack playlist. You preferred gametype of choice should be Sniper Attack, followed by Rocket and FRG Attack. You will want to make the game last as long as possible as the Banshees only spawn about every two and a half to three minutes. You can get this done in a single game, but expect it to take two games. And do not play 2X Score Attack for this. For some reason, those kills do not count towards this challenge.

A Side of Heuvos - Kill 60 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal. - 2500cR

So, load up Nightfall in Normal or Heroic and start playing. The easiest thing to do for this challenge is to keep replaying that first section of the game. What you will need to do is play up until you clear the first large area where a Phantom drops some troops in. After that, Restart the Mission from the pause menu. Just score as many headshots as you can and then restart the mission if you still need headshots. If you go to the main menu during this, the counter will restart so this really has to be in one playthrough.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 4 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1300cR
This is actually the hardest challenge of the day in my opinion, which is interesting, since it gives the least amount of credits. Getting the right gametype is key to this challenge so you will want to find any gametype like Elite Slayer. Your best bet of finding this gametype is in the Multi Team playlist. As an Elite, you always spawn with one Plasma Grenade. Do not worry about scoring a bunch of kills but just worry about getting those Grenade Sticks. You can also try Invasion as you will spend half of the game as an Elite. Now, you can also get this done in other gametypes, but the chances are much lower as you need to find plasmas to use. An Objective gametype is likely your best bet as it lasts longer and you know where your opponents are.

  1. Yeah the 4 sticks will pose a challenge. I'm 25 grenade kills away from gold in multiplayer so that challenge should come with me spending the night tossing sticks and frags to get those last 25.

    Thanks as always,
