Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 2/25/13

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

The Challenges:

Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 250 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3800cR
All in all, this challenge will not get taken care of by the others today. I would consider this not to be terribly surprising due to the massive amount of kills needed for this challenge. Since the other challenges will not even complete "More than a Handful," they will only contribute about seventy-seven kills towards this challenge. For the remaining kills, it will be best if you head to the Score Attack playlist and try to play either 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse. Either gametype will get you about a hundred and twenty kills per game, so two games will finish off this challenge.

More than a Handful - Kill 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3500cR
It is slightly weird to have two challenges like this today but, in the end, the one worth more kills is your objective. It just so happens that seventy-seven of those kills need to be in multiplayer Matchmaking. Now, "Explosive Ordnance Distribution" might bring in twenty to thirty kills while "Linked up with" will bring in absolutely zero kills. Once you have complete them, I would recommend heading to the Grifball playlist where you can score about thirty kills a game at minimum. Quite often the total is more and that means this challenge will take even less time to complete. Two games or three games should get it done.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1250cR
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. I would expect this challenge to take multiple tried and you might want to attempt Invasion Slayer as well.

Linked up with - Link your gamertag with and play a game in Halo: Reach Matchmaking. - 1cR
Well, this challenge again. This is a relic from back when Bungie was still in charge of Halo. Alas, that time has ended. Now, this may or may not get changed later in the day but last time, I believe they left it on here. If you were not on before the switch, I do not believe there is any way for you to complete this challenge but it is only for a single measly credit. If you were on with a linked gamertag before the switch, just play a game and this one, lone credit can be yours!

The Weekly Challenge:
Best Served Cold - Take your Revenge on 77 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 7777cR

In order to score a Revenge medal, you will need to kill the enemy that just recently killed you before anyone else does. Grifball is the okay for this challenge as you can die really easily and then get your revenge, but another player can very quickly get the kill as well, so it is a double-edged sword. Team Snipers or Team SWAT can you serve you well also as it follows the same principles of Grifball; easy to die and then get the revenge. You have all week to get these so try to get eleven a day, if not more, and it will be all taken care of.
