The Challenges:

One Spartan Army - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Well, it is Thursday, which means it is time for a day full of Firefight Matchmaking and tomorrow will be multiplayer Matchmaking only (maybe). This first challenge, asking you to slay a hundred enemies in Firefight Matchmaking, is really not a bother for this reason; you will get a hundred and twenty kills per game while playing Score Attack. So this one should get done in your first game and then you can easily go on worry about your other challenges since some of them will, as always, be a pain in the ass.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2800cR
Elites are the toughest enemies you can face in Halo, hands down, but do not spawn reliably in most playlists or gametypes. There is one gametype, however, where they do spawn reliably and that gametype is 2X Score Attack. In the final wave there will always be about twenty or so Elites for you to kill so two games will take care of this challenge, but hold up. Complete "Flat Tire" first, and then worry about hopping into 2X Score Attack to complete this challenge, as you will likely score Elite kills while finding vehicles to destroy and vehicles destroyed in 2X Score Attack will not count towards "Flat Tire."

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2343cR
This challenge will, as always, be the most aggravating one of the day, especially since Firefight Doubles being gone makes this even harder to do than before. Our only hope now is Score Attack and hopefully getting right gametype and the right map. You will want the map Holdout , as it has static Banshee spawns, which bring out a Banshee every two and a half to four minutes, and the gametypes Sniper Attack, FRG Attack, or Rocket Attack. Sniper Attack is the best option but the other two are passable. Do not choose 2X Score Attack as vehicle kills in that gametype hardly count for the challenge. Now, you will want to make the game last as long as possible so you get as many Banshee spawns as possible. Expect to get about three per game but I have seen up to five. Expect this to take three to four games to complete.

Just Holdout - Kill 125 enemies on Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1100cR
Huh, looks like this challenge is pretty much a gift for anyone who uses the Holdout method for getting vehicle kills. Holdout is an okay map, not the best but certainly not the worst, and the tower at the top of the hill should be where you spend most of your time. You will hopefully already be playing a bunch of games on this map for the "Flat Tire" challenge and should be hitting about a hundred and twenty kills per games. That means this will be completed on the start of your second game, basically. Not too much else to look into here, just get your kills and then relax.
