Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 7/22/12

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
Well, we lucked out and the challenges are actually pretty easy today and also in line with finishing of the Weekly Challenge if you have yet to do so. As a matter of fact, you do not need to worry about these a hundred and eighty kills at all thanks to the other challenges today. These kills can be gotten in any mode but you will end up getting well over a hundred and eighty in Firefight Matchmaking today. Just move along and smile, cause this is less stuff for you to worry about.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2800cR
Due to this challenge (and the Weekly Challenge) I am urging you to play in the Firefight Doubles today as to ensure that you will get the kills you need and the rounds for the Weekly. Aim for the Arcadefight gametype which appears all the time. In this playlist, typically, you will get a wave full of Elites about once every round but sometimes less. Expect to get about twenty-five to thirty kills per game which means you will likely need to play two games to complete this challenge. Communicate with your teammates so you spread the kills around.

Katanarama - Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
I guess that 343i is unaware of the loadouts in their playlist since while you are working on the "Demon" challenge, this will be insanely easy to do. One of the loadouts in Arcadefight features the Energy Sword so as you can see, this is a really pointless challenge. Even if you do not pick the loadout with the sword, there is a chance of getting Elites with swords (though it is rare) and you can simply score the kills that way. You can also pull this off in regular Score Attack or 2X Score Attack.

Inclement Weather - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Thunderstorm Skull on. - 3000cR
As per the usual for any sort of run-through of a campaign mission with any sort skulls active, a speedrun of Nightfall is the best option. Make sure you are on Heroic or Legendary and with the Thunderstorm Skull on, which upgrades all the enemies to their highest "tier" but since we are doing a speedrun, it does not really matter as you will be bypassing all the enemies in the level. A guide to the speedrun can be seen right here (not that it also the LASO guide but you are following that method). This should take you about eight to ten minutes to complete.
