Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 10/8/12

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

The Challenges:

One Spartan Army - Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3500cR
Well, sparing this lone Firefight Matchmaking challenge, it is all multiplayer Matchmaking today, including the Weekly Challenge. This firefight challenge is pretty simple, just score kills, but the number of games you need to play is just off what you would expect. A typical game in the Score Attack playlist gives you a hundred and twenty kills, playing Gruntpocalypse or 2X Score Attack. Double that and you are at two hundred and forty kills, which is just ten kills short of our goal. That means a third game will need to be played, preferably Crashsite, to finish off the remaining kills. Crashsite is useful because once you have the kills you need, you can die or let the generator explode to end the game legitimately.

T-Hug It Out - Kill 7 enemies with close quarters combat in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2400cR
Close quarters combat kills are kills made with the Shotgun, Gravity Hammer, Energy Sword, Assassination, or Melee. Getting seven kills in a single game via close quarters combat can be challenging unless you know the right gametype. That gametype, for this challenge, is Grifball where every single kill you can get, sparing the Grifball exploding, is a close quarters combat kill. Seven kills is easy as hell in Grifball and should be taken care of in the first round of the game. As well, you will likely be playing this gametype for the Weekly Challenge to simply rack up kills so this is more like a freebie. Get to hammerin'.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 3 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2250cR
Sticky grenades (or Plasma Grenades) are the covenant equivalent of Fragmentation Grenades, sparing that they will stick to the opponent once they hit. I am pretty bad with these, yet, I hardly ever have trouble with challenges like these. The trick is getting the right gametype which will facilitate these sticky grenade kills. For this challenge, you will want to play in the Multi Team playlist since it presents you with a dearth of targets and, hopefully, enough grenades to stick them with. Now, if you can get the Elite Slayer gametype, then you are completely set as you will start every spawn with one plasma grenade. Should take one or two games to complete.

The Magic Number - Complete 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3000cR
Seven games is not too much to complete in a single day, especially since you only have to complete the games, not win them. You will already be playing a number of games for the Weekly Challenge and the "Sticky Icky Icky" challenge. Get you work on the other challenges done and then you will simply be adding kills onto your progress for the Weekly challenge. Remember that quitting, getting booted, or loosing connection from these games will cause them not to count. Play from start to finish.

The Weekly Challenge:
All in a Week's Work - Kill 1000 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking this week. - 15000cR

So, a thousand kills this week in multiplayer Matchmaking. This is one of those instances of "looks harder than it actually is" because this is rather on the easy side of things. For a thousand kill this week, you will need to hit about a hundred and fifty every day, which will leave you at about a thousand and fifty kills. The preferred gametype for this challenge will be the Grifball playlist as you can rack up to sixty or more kills per game in no time at all. Hopefully you will hit thirty kills minimum, but you can hit even more if you have evenly matched teams. Multi Team is also a great playlist in which to rack up the kills. Try to get a head if you can so you can maybe end this challenge early. Good luck.
