Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 2/11/13

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

The Challenges:
More than a Handful - Kill 25 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
My hope is that this challenge is pretty much handled by the other ones today, including the Weekly Challenge. The Weekly Challenge has you going for seventy-seven wins this week (good luck with that!) and then the "Credits for Completion" challenge has you simply completing four games in multiplayer Matchmaking. You should be hitting around twelve or so kills per game so this challenge should only take two the three games to complete at the most. It is taken care of for you so just play and try to have fun.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today. - 2500cR
Automatic weapons in Reach include the AR (Assault Rifle), Needler, Plasma Rifle, Plasma Repeater, and the Brute Spiker. For this challenge, I would start with Winter Contingency on Heroic and play through exclusively using automatic weapons. Any time you damage an enemy and an AI Teammate takes the kill, it will still count for you so make sure you damage large groups of enemies first. This will likely take into ONI: Swordbase but not much further. It can even be completed during Winter Contingency if you replay some sections with lots of enemies like the second time you get off the Falcons.

Credits for Completion - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2400cR
Well, this challenge will not prove at all challenging today thanks to the Weekly Challenge down below, which is asking you to score seventy-seven wins in multiplayer Matchmaking this week. You need to score at least eleven wins a day for that challenge, and that will most definitely involve completing four games, unless I have gone crazy. Now, be warned that quitting, disconnecting, or getting kicked from these games will cause them not to count and can lead to a temporary ban if it happens to often. So be careful.

Going Outpost-al - Kill 100 enemies on Outpost on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
Outpost isn't my favorite map for, especially for Score Attack, but it is doable in this instance as and Score Attack is your best bet for this challenge. You will get about a hundred and twenty or so kills per game which means you will need to complete a single game for this challenge. Stick to the building in the level as going outside will lend you no cover at all. Go for Gruntpocalypse or 2X Score Attack and you should have no trouble completing this challenge in a single go.

The Weekly Challenge:
Play to Win - Win 77 games in multiplayer Matchmaking this week. - 20343cR

Well, this challenge sucks. That is really the only way I can describe it and it is especially true since this was last week's challenge as well. Asking for seventy-seven wins this week means that you need to score eleven wins per day to complete it. That itself will be challenging and deserving of far more credits than this is giving. More than likely there will be some Daily Challenges focused on wins during the week to help you along. Now, here are some tips for scoring wins: First off, play in playlists that you enjoy and normally have success in. Now would not be a great time to find a new playlist that really annoys you. Secondly, play with people that you know and like. If you know your fellow players and have played with them before, you know their strengths and how to work as a team. Finally, take breaks. If you get to appoint where you are not really focused or are aggravated, stop playing and do something else.
