Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 8/5/12

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 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3800cR
Whether the other challenges today will take care of this one is unclear. It should be taken care of depending on how you get the other challenges. You should hit about two-hundred and forty kills in Firefight Matchmaking for the "Scoped" challenge. Assuming that you maintain about ten kills per game and win all those three multiplayer Matchmaking games for the "Un, Deux, Trois" challenge (though it will probably take more than three games) and that should have you right at two-hundred and fifty. If all else fails, do some Grifball or more Firefight to get any remaining kills.

Un, Deux, Trois - Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2900cR
For a weekend challenge, winning three games is actually a little easy, but it will allow you to relax and just have fun playing Halo. That is not an easy thing to do when we are saddled with winning. This is really up to personal preference in terms of what playlists you want to play in but here are some pointers. Stick to playlists that feature two-team gametypes. More teams lowers your chances. Try to play in gametypes you enjoy. Going for wins is typically not the time to try new things. Finally, play with friend. You will enjoy it more and will likely play better.

Scoped - Kill 200 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons. - 2500cR
Precision weapons in Reach include the DMR (Designated Marksman's Rifle), the Sniper, the Needle Rifle, and the Covenant Beam Rifle. In Firefight, you will be better off using the DMR and the Sniper and we even have specific playlists that will get it done. Gruntpocalypse in the Score Attack playlist is your best bet for this challenge, though 2X Score Attack is good too. Both gametypes will allow you to get about a hundred and twenty kills, with almost all being precision weapon kills, in a single game. Two games of this and you should be all done, plus well on your way to getting "Shootin' and Lootin'" done too. Firefight Doubles is also a good option if you play Arcadefight.

Sweep the Leg - Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
Well, this is the easiest challenge of the day, since it is the simplest one. To assassinate an opponent, you simply need to get behind them, get in close, and hold the melee button. This will trigger an assassination animation which needs to generally complete. If you get Yoink'd or Showstopped, no challenge for you. Assassination animations in the air or on inclines occur faster so aim for those. Team Snipers is a great playlist for this challenge but since you just need one, any playlist will do.
