Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 8/2/12

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

The Challenges:
Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 4000cR
So, as per the usual, it is Firefight Thursday, as we have come to expect every single week. Every challenge is done in Firefight Matchmaking or, at least, can be done. Now, this challenge is requiring you to get four-hundred kills in any game mode of Reach but we will, of course, be doing this in Firefight as that is the fastest method for scoring kills. Since I will be urging you to play in Firefight Doubles, it should take you about three games to hit past four-hundred kills. Good luck.

Demon - Kill 30 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2400cR
This is another reason I am urging you to play Firefight Double and, more specifically, you will want to play the Arcadefight gametype. Typically, every round, you will get a bunch of Heretic Elites (which means that they are using human weapons) but not every round. If you get them every round, you should be all set in terms of getting thirty Elite kills. However, if you do not, you will likely be playing another game for the "Flat Tire" challenge anyway so worry not. If you are not playing Firefight Doubles, two game of 2X Score Attack in the Score Attack playlist will take care of this challenge easy.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
This is typically a troubling and irritating challenge but, luckily, today it is pretty simple, mostly because we only need five instead of ten. For all the other challenge I am telling you to play in the Firefight Doubles playlist and this challenge is the reason why. For map you want Holdout, since it has static Banshee spawns, and for the gametype you want Arcadefight as 2X Score Attack will not work. Choose the Sniper loadout and then wait for the Banshee spawn which happens every two and a half to four minutes. Switch off with you friend you are playing with (I hope) and expect this challenge to take two games to complete.

Survivor - Earn 5 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
For once, we get a spree challenge that does not require you to kill yourself to obtain. In Firefight Matchmaking, you will receive a spree for every ten kills you make uninterrupted by death. You can get up to five sprees before the number gets larger (i.e. the next spree comes at a hundred kills after you hit fifty). Luckily, you only need five sprees so this works out fine as you will get them at ten, twenty, thirty, forty, and fifty kills. This is the easiest challenge of the day, so relax and enjoy the easy credits.

  1. In regards to the Survivor challenge, weapon sprees do count towards completion. Ex: 10 Kills with the sniper will give you 5 and 10 kill sprees with rifle as well as the killing spree at 10kills.

    1. Cool. Good to hear since they tend to count some times and then not count other times.
