Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/26/12

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

The Challenges:
Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3000cR
Well, contrary to this challenge yesterday, a hundred kills will be easily accomplished in Reach today thanks to the other Daily Challenge. "This is My Rifle" has you getting thirty kills in multiplayer Matchmaking, sixty kills in campaign for the "A Side of Heuvos" challenge, and finally fifty Elite kills in Firefight Matchmaking for the "Demon" challenge. And let's not forget that the Demon challenge will likely require three games of 2X Score Attack which actually means about three-hundred and sixty kills. Challenge complete.

Demon - Kill 50 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3000cR
So, as stated above, you will need to play in the Score Attack playlist but, more importantly, you need to aim for the 2X Score Attack gametype about three times to get these fifty Elite kills. Now, in a typical game of 2X Score Attack, the final wave will be about twenty Elites that are extremely easy to kill with a DMR and AR, which you always start the game with. Now, twenty kills per game means that this will take you three games to complete unless you get extremely lucky and get two drop-pods of Elites in both game. That might bring you right to fifty since you might face twenty or more Elites. However, the chances of that are low. As well, remember that smaller maps will go faster.

A Side of Heuvos - Kill 60 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal. - 2500cR
So, Nightfall is the third level of Reach and the only one that really features the Sniper prominently (similar to Truth and Reconciliation in Halo: CE). You will need to score sixty headshots with the Sniper on at least Normal and you will know it is a headshot when the Sniper kill medal pops up (note: play with scoring on). You will actually be hard pressed to score sixty headshot in a single playthrough so either abuse the checkpoints by reloading into large enemy areas or do multiple playthroughs. The first major area you get to filled with enemies is actually a great spot.

This is My Rifle - Earn 30 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2500cR
There has really been a focus on precision weapons lately and this challenge, along with "A Side of Heuvos" continues the theme. Now, as you should know by now, precision weapons kills are best earned in Team SWAT and Team Snipers which will give you the DMR and the Sniper respectively. It simply depends on what weapon you are more comfortable with. Personally, I would take the DMR in SWAT (way too much camping in the Snipers playlist). You should be hitting about twelve to fifteen kills per game so expect this challenge to take two to three games to complete.
