Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 10/27/12

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 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
This is an easy enough challenge to complete as a hundred kills is extremely easy to obtain in Firefight Matchmaking. First off, this is the lone Firefight challenge today so there are no other stipulations on this challenge; you do not even have to do it in a single game. Gametype and playlist is entirely up to you, but if you hope to hit a hundred kills in a single game, you are best off sticking to the Score Attack playlist. All these gametypes, sparing Legendary Attack, will put you well over a hundred kills. Gruntpocalypse and 2X Score Attack are the preferred playlists as they are the fastest.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1250cR
So, since the Action Sack playlist has been, well, sacked, we can no longer rely on its mainstay gametypes like Splockets and Dino Blasters to easily complete this challenge. It is unfortunate, but they need to make bandwidth for Halo 4. Now, ordnance weapons in Reach include the Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Concussion Rifle, and the Plasma Launcher. Your best bet now, is to go into the Invasion playlist. Either Invasion or Invasion slayer is fine as long as you are getting the weapon drops in Invasion slayer. The final phase for regular Invasion will always give you access to either the Grenade Launcher or the Concussion Rifle as well. This is doable in other playlists, but not very likely.

A Side of Huevos - Kill 60 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal. - 2500cR
Nightfall has always been one of my favorite missions in the game, right next to Long Night of Solace purely because of the sniping aspect of the mission. Scoring headshots with the Sniper on this level, however, is actually harder than you think. You best chances are in the initial area where enemies drop in. Score as many headshots as you can and then go to the menu and select reload checkpoint. Keep doing this until you hit sixty headshots. For difficulty, I would urge you to play on Heroic, since Jun will steal a lot of your kills on the lower difficulties. Also, remember that leaving the game and playing something else is likely to reset the challenge so this needs to be done in one sitting.

Home Field Advantage - Win 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 4400cR
Well, win eight games today. It is the weekend and we have not seen these high number win game challenges recently, so this probably should have been expected. This will be a lot to do in one sitting so make sure to try and spread this out over the day if you can. Be prepared for eight games to actually take double that number, if you are having a bad day. Now, I will urge you to stick to gametypes you enjoy, but remember some guidelines to help you along. Stick to gametypes with only two teams. Every additional team lowers your chances of being on the winning one. Stick to gametypes you are good at. That one is pretty obvious. Finally, try to play with friends as you will communicate and function better with them.
