Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 10/17/12

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

The Challenges:

Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3500cR
You will need to go out of your way for this one today, but not by a whole lot. Only one other challenge, "You Want This, Don't You?" is asking for multiplayer Matchmaking kills today, and only fourteen in a game. For a large portion of players, those fourteen kills can be achieved in a single game but it will take two or three games for others. Regardless of how many kills you have left, just jump into multiplayer Matchmaking and have fun after completing "You Want This, Don't You?" and get the kills you need. For the record, Multi Team and Grifball are likely your best options to get kills really fast in multiplayer Matchmaking.

Supporting Role - Earn 20 assists in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2500cR
Well, you will need to play Firefight today for this challenge, but the catch is that you will need to play with teammates so you get assists. You are awarded an assist when you deal forty percent damage to an enemy that is then, quickly, killed by someone else. The trick is that you need to communicate with your teammates and let them know that you are going for assists. You can definitely get twenty in a single game but do not be afraid to spread it out to two games if needed. Since I am suggesting the standard Firefight Playlist, Arcadefight is likely a great playlist for this challenge but you will not see a lot of assists until the second round, which is when the Mythic Skull is turned on. Just try to communicate with the other players and you can easily get this done in a single game.

Points Pyramid - Score 60,000 points on any Campaign mission. - 1750cR
This is actually a very easy challenge to complete as points in Campaign can be gotten very easy if you know the right spots to go to. The strategy that I use for this I call Banshee Hunting and it takes very little time. What you will need to do is set up the mission New Alexandria in Heroic or Legendary with the Iron, Tough Luck, Catch, Thunderstorm, and Famine. These skulls will multiply your score, but not really affect the gameplay for us. Turn scoring on as well so you know where you are at. Now, jump into the Falcon at start and just fly around killing Banshees. Do not go and complete any of the objectives but just kills Banshees (and Phantoms). You can hit sixty-thousand points in twelve minutes or so if you are actively hunting the Covies. Remember that taking Skulls off, especially the Iron Skull, will drastically reduce the number of points you get. A video guide for this is located here.

You Want This, Don't You? - Earn 14 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2400cR
So, precision weapons are my favorite types of weapons in Reach and what I tend to get the most kills with. For those who are curious, this includes the DMR, the Sniper Rifle, the Needle Rifle, and the Covenant Beam Rifle (Sniper, whatever). Team SWAT and Team Snipers are the best playlists for these challenge as you will always have a precision weapon (unless someone picks SWAT Magnums). Fourteen kills maybe hard for some to get, however. Team SWAT and Snipers do occasionally have objective gametypes, however, so if you find yourself constantly short of fourteen kills, aim for that and you should be able to snag at least fourteen kills in a single game.

  1. Points Pyramid doesn't really feel like enough cR to make it worth the effort without doing your trick, and even with it is questionable...
