Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 7/18/12

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 have no issue completing this challenge today due to the other daily challenges bringing in a bunch of kills. The "That Pink Mist" challenge will bring in two hundred kill while "The Magic Number" challenge will likely bring in seventy to eighty kills today. My math is, well, pretty much always rusty, but that is well over a hundred and twenty kills required by the other challenges so ignore this one and move on. You have a lot of games to play today so do not sweat the smaller challenges.

That Pink Mist - Kill 200 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3000cR
Well, this challenge will pretty much be the most troublesome one of the day since Supercombine kills are not always as easy to come by as they should be. For this challenge I am recommending that you play in Firefight Doubles playlist with a friend and play in the Arcadefight gametype. If you do not have a friend, you will need to find a random person so good luck. To get a Supercombine kill, you need to stick an enemy with a certain number of needles and have the ensuing explosion kill the enemy, not the needle. Arcadefight has a load out with the FRG and the Needler so pick that one. Ammunition is unlimited so just spam the Needler constantly. At first, you will not get a lot of Supercombine kill because the enemies are too weak and will die before the explosion. After the second round starts and the Mythic skull is on, you should have no problem racking up the kills. Expect this challenge to take three games or so to complete.

Mythic Evasion - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with Tough Luck and Mythic on. - 3500cR
As a quick rundown, the Tough Luck Skull will cause enemies to evade more often and the Mythic Skull will double the health of all enemies. Since this challenge only needs to be completed on Heroic, you can really get it down on any mission. However, in the interest of time, with these other challenges being lengthy, you will want to do a speedrun of Nightfall, which can be completed in about seven to ten minutes. I would also recommend doing this solo. Follow this guide for the route you need to run. As well, the next shortest mission is Winter Contingency, but the rest will take considerable time to complete.

The Magic Number - Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3000cR
Well, this is the only thing you have to specifically do in multiplayer Matchmaking today and it will likely take an hour or two to complete. You do not need to win these seven games, but you just need to complete them. Now, you also cannot get dropped, booted, or straight quite out of these games and have them count. Slayer games are the fastest, typically, when you have a small map as objective games tend to be much longer. As well, try to play with a good team, faster you win a match, the faster it is complete. Grifball can be good for this if you have a team focused on winning instead of just getting kills.

  1. The campaign guide isnt the right one

    1. Pretty sure it is... I recommended Nightfall and I linked to the LASO/Speedrun Nightfall guide.
