Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/13/13

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 125 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2500cR
Well, I hope you remember that Weekly Challenge, you know, the one that has you going for eleven wins a day in multiplayer Matchmaking. Yeah, that one. Well, even though that challenge sucks, it does do us a huge favor by taking care of this challenge. Now, you will be playing at least eleven games today since you need at least eleven wins and you should be bringing in about a twelve or so kills per game. That means at least a hundred and thirty-two kills today. Definitely enough to cover the a hundred and twenty-five need for this challenge.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
No need to really go in depth for this challenge. A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is when you score ten kills in a row without dying. This will be pretty much done in your first ten kills of whatever game you play today for Firefight. As this is the only Firefight Matchmaking challenge today, I will say that you should probably stick to the Score Attack playlist for this challenge. With gametypes like Gruntpocalypse, 2X Score Attack, and Crashsite, this challenge will become extremely easy to complete. With Crashsite you can just die once you have the spree to end the game.

Storm's Comin' - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with Mythic and Thunderstorm on. - 3500cR
Easiest level for this challenge is Nightfall, as you can run through the entire level and you do not have to actually fight hardly any Covenant. Follow this LASO guide for the fastest route through the level. It takes about five to seven minutes to run through the level and get this challenge completed. Mythic and Thunderstorm effect the enemy difficulty so Nightfall is ideal due to the lack of combat from running through. You can also play through Winter Contingency, but Nighfall is the easiest option.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 4 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1300cR
Sticky grenades (aka Plasma Grenades) are one of the more interesting weapons in the Halo sandbox and we have had them since Halo CE. You need to get four sticky kills with these in a single game. That means that you stick someone and then the grenade explodes and kills them. It does not count if people near the player die from the explosion, it only counts the player you stuck. The best playlist for this challenge is Multi Team since you can get the Elite Slayer gametype where you always spawn with a single Plasma Grenade. In Multi Team you have a bunch of targets so I would try specifically for those. Now, Slayer Pro in the MLG playlist is also an option, but you do not have as many targets. Remember, you need four in a single game.
