Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 1/7/13

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

The Challenges:
Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
This will be a close challenges since a single game in the Score Attack playlist, whether 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse will get you just at a hundred or twenty kills. Any enemies killing themselves will cause you to play another game to fulfill this challenge. Now, if that does occur, play one extra game, Crashsite if you can, to pull in that final kill and then move onto multiplayer Matchmaking for the day.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
Explosive Ordnance Weapons in Reach include the Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, the Concussion Rifle, and the Plasma Launcher. These weapons are not easy to find anymore since the Action Sack playlist was taken down. Now, your best chance is the third phase of the Invasion gametype in which you will have access to either the Concussion Rifle or the Grenade Launcher. You will have two chances at this if the game is pretty even and you only need five kills in a single game. You just need three in a single game which should be pretty easy to hit.

If It Bleeds - Find and kill the Gold Range-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Normal or harder. - 5000cR
Automatic One of the highest appearing Gold Range-class Elites, at least for me, has been on the mission ONI: Swordbase. You can load up Rally Point Bravo and precede to the base. The first location he may appear is at the top of the ramp running to the original starting point for the level. Track him down fast as he will eventually disappear. The second place he may appear is further in, near the Shotgun spawn for multiplayer. He is very easy to flank and assassinate. If he does not appear at either of those, you can easily restart the mission and try again.

Survivor - Earn 7 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is earned when you score ten kills in a row without dying. Now, you can stack these up to five sprees and then you need more than ten kills. In a standard Firefight Matchmaking game, you will likely only get six in a game if your survive the whole time. However, you can also add in weapons sprees and other miscellaneous sprees to this to hit seven, or just die once you get to fifty kills and start over. The choice is yours.

The Weekly Challenge:
Fleet Feet - Complete any Campaign mission on Legendary in 15 minutes or less. - 7777cR

This looks challenging but, thankfully, it really is not. You can easily complete a campaign mission on Legendary in under fifteen minutes but that mission will need to be Nightfall, which you can speedrun through following this LASO guide. You can likely even die once or twice and still make it through. You might also be able to run through most of Winter Contingency in this time, but that will be very close and probably a failure if you die at all.
