Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 10/31/12 - Happy Halloween!

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

The Challenges:
Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2100cR
So, I'm going to call a "What the hell!" on today's challenges. It is Halloween and no special Living Dead based challenge? Really? Guess a machine really is picking these challenges now. Either way, thirty kills in multiplayer Matchmaking is s very easy mark to hit. You will be playing at least three games for the "Un, Deux, Trois" challenge, but likely a few more. On average, you should be getting twelve to fifteen kills a game so this challenge is somewhat of a freebie. Hit up Grifball if you need extra kills.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Another really easy challenge for today, as it seems that they really want you to get the Weekly Challenge today. A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is ten kills uninterrupted by death and is extremely easy to get. You should, ideally, get this in your first ten kills of the game. Now, for the playlist, you should head for the Score Attack playlist as this is the easiest one to get kills in. 2X Score Attack and Gruntpocalypse are the fastest gametypes but if you just want to get your kills and be done, aim for the Crashsite gametype. In Crashsite, you can get the thirty kills you need and then die or let the generator explode the end the game.

Short Controlled Bursts - Kill 50 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today. - 1000cR
So automatic weapons in Reach include the Automatic Rifle (AR), Plasma Rifle, Plasma Repeater, the Needler, and the Brute Spiker. The AR is the most common weapon for this challenge as you start with it in a few levels. I would start with Winter Contingency and just play through until you hit fifty kills. If you see an automatic weapon, pick it up and use it, do not only have one on you during the level. I would also set the game to Heroic to limit some of your kills being stolen by your AI Teammates. Now, remember that you can just fire some shot into enemies and damage them and then you would get the kill if an AI teammate finished it off. Should be done before you finish Winter Contingency.

Un, Deux, Trois - Win 3 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2900cR
This is actually an acceptable challenge for today as most people will be quite busy today due to it being Halloween. Winning three games should not take too long at all if you follow some specific guidelines and do not play completely horribly. First off, stick to gametypes with only two teams. Multiples of teams means that your chances of being on the winning game are much lower. 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. This should take about four to five games to complete, but do not be surprised if a few more are needed.
