Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 8/16/12

The Challenges:
Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 4000cR
As per the norm every week, Thursday is the day for Firefight challenges; nothing but Firefight. Now, since Firefight Doubles is now a thing of the past, completing these challenges becomes much more of a solo adventure unless you want to try four-player co-op play in the Firefight playlist which can be a disaster. Instead, stick to the Score Attack playlist which did survive the purge. This challenge will take you four games to complete as each game will get you a hundred and twenty or so kills. You will likely play three to four games while working on the other challenges, namely "Flat Tire," so this should be mostly in hand.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking - 2000cR
A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is slightly different from Multiplayer Matchmaking due to the number of kills required. Multiplayer Matchmaking requires five consecutive kills for a spree whereas Firefight requires ten consecutive kills, uninterrupted by death. Now, this is a really easy challenge to complete and you should, ideally, get this done in your first ten kills of the game. If you are having trouble, for any reason, try a game of four-player Firefight and just hang back and pick of enemies to score the spree.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2343cR
This is the most time consuming challenge of the day and will likely aggravate most who go for it. Basically, on the map Holdout there are static Banshee spawns which will load in a Banshee about every two to four minutes. Get a gametype like Sniper or FRG Attack (FRG Attack also has you with a Needler for the "That Pink Mist" challenge) but do not play 2X Score Attack as vehicle kills in that gametype do not typically count towards the challenge. Make the game last as long as you possibly can so you can get as many spawns as possible. You will typically get three to four spawns per game. Expect this challenge to take three to four games to finish off.

That Pink Mist - Kill 70 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
This is actually one of the harder challenges now that Firefight Doubles is gone. Still, we can make do. You can go for this in the regular Firefight playlist, though I would not recommend it. A gametype like FRG Attack in the Score Attack playlist will start you with a Needler and unlimited ammunition. The Grunts will not work for this challenge as they die before the Supercombine occurs. Brutes, Skirmishers, and Elites are fare game though. Since you are playing possible multiple games of FRG Attack for the "Flat Tire" challenge, you can definitely get this done at the same time. Do be prepared to play extra games to complete this challenge, however.
