Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 6/25/12

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
For weeks we had the challenges like this one always taken care of by the other Daily Challenges but it seems as though the norm is trending the other way now and we will need to start going out of our way to complete this challenge. Now, we can get work done on the Weekly Challenge, however, and that will be best done by jumping into Grifball (which you might be in anyway) and just racking up the kills. The alternative is to jump into a game of Firefight and finish it off much quicker, but that will not help with the Weekly Challenge.

Headshot Honcho - Kill 11 enemies with headshots in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2640cR
You will need to specifically play a headshot-focused game to get this challenge and hopefully it will only take you one game to complete. Team SWAT and Team Snipers are your best options for this challenge as both are headshot centric and allow for one-shot, headshot kills. Team SWAT has you with the DMR and no shields while Team Snipers obviously has you with the Sniper. Eleven kills is around what you should be hitting on average in a single multiplayer Matchmaking game, but plan for this to take two games.

Go Right Ahead Folks - Earn a First Strike in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
To score a First Strike medal in Halo Reach, you need to score the first kill in any round of a multiplayer Matchmaking game. Objective games, like Invasion or 1-Flag CTF, and Living Dead are great for this since they multiple rounds. With Slayer gametypes, you only have a single chance every game to get a First Strike. Grifball is also a possibility as you have five rounds possible in every game, though it can be as low as three. This should only take a few games to complete.

Oops! All Kills - Earn 5 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Well, this is kind of pointless today considering the Weekly challenge, but it really is just free credits and you may very well have this done before you even start on the Weekly challenge due to the "Go Right Ahead Folks" and the "Headshot Honcho" challenges. These multikills do not need to be in a single game and can any combination of five multikills that is actually achievable. If you do not get this while working on the other Daily challenges, you will get it while working on the Weekly challenge, so fret not.

The Weekly Challenge:
Multiplicative - Earn 200 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking this week. - 25000cR

Well, two hundred is a very large number of multikills but, if you know the various playlists, this is very, very easy to accomplish. Now, a multikill is achieved whenever you kill multiple opponents within four seconds of each other, which can be stacked up to ten kills (which is nine multikills). First off, dividing this up over seven days means you need about thirty multikills a day though you can easily earn more and get this done early. In terms of the playlist for this challenge, Grifball is your best friend for this challenge and will be for the rest of the week. If the teams are even and balanced, you can really rack up the kills and multikills. If the teams are not balanced, well, it become kind of shitty, but just bear through it and get what multikills you can. Remember, at least thirty a day.
