Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 1/15/13

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

The Challenges:
One Spartan Army - Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3500cR
Well, hitting two-hundred and fifty kills today in Firefight Matchmaking will not really be a challenge as you might think thanks to the "Flat Tire" challenge. Essentially, "Flat Tire" will have you playing three to four games to get the ten vehicle kills and will likely give you several hundred kills. Regardless, it will be well more than the two-hundred and fifty need for this challenge. Move along.

Flat Tire - Kill 10 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2343cR
Well, who doesn't like blowing up vehicles? I, well, I used to, but then they changed the way enemies spawn so vehicles appear way less often. Now, the only map you can really do this on successfully will be Holdout as it has static Banshee spawns which send you Banshees every two to four minutes. Make the game last as long as possible to get about three to four kills by kiting around the final enemies, typically Hunters. Now, 2X Score Attack will not work for this challenge. Instead, aim for Sniper, Rocket, or FRG Attack. Expect this to take three to four games to complete or maybe even two if you get really lucky.

Return of the Mack - Kill 50 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 1700cR
Elites are the hardest enemies that you will face in Campaign but they are neither rare nor plentiful in the game. The best mission to find them on is ONI: Swordbase, the second level of the campaign. Play on Heroic so AI teammates are not stealing your kills. As well, remember that as long as you damage the Elite, an AI teammate can get the kill and it will still count as yours. One playthrough of ONI will likely not be enough to complete this challenge so play through to Nightfall if you need to.

Not as Clumsy or Random... - Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
This is extremely simple but, first off, precision weapons in Reach include the DMR, Sniper Rifle, Needle Rifle, and the Covenant Focus Rifle. Most likely, you will score these kills with the DMR as it is the most prevalent weapon in the game next to the AR. Even in a basic game without trying you can likely score this. SWAT is the easiest option, along with Team Snipers, since every has a precision weapon and all headshots are one shot kills. Get to it.
