Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/16/13

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

The Challenges:
Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2343cR
Well, you do have a fair number of challenges today that will be helping you score kills. However, there will not be enough kills to cover the requirements of this challenge. "Single Wield" will get you sixty or so kills, a Side of Heuvos will get you about sixty as well, and "Iron Will" will probably bring in twenty or so kills. This leaves you forty kills short of your target. You can either play a simple game in the Score Attack playlist or three to four extra games of multiplayer to finish this challenge off.

Single Wield - Earn 60 kills with small arms weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2350cR
Small arms weapons in Reach include the Magnum Pistol, the Needler, the Plasma Pistol, and the Brute Spiker (which is damn near impossible to find in multiplayer Matchmaking). Now, if you venture into Team SWAT you can easily score headshots with the Magnum, especially if you can score the SWAT Magnums gametype. Otherwise, you will want to stick to smaller areas so you do not get DMR'd in the head. Should take five to six games to complete if you have a bad game or two. That is, of course, assuming that you score about ten to fifteen kills a game and do not dip below that number.

A Side of Heuvos - Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal. - 3000cR
This is actually a harder challenge than you think as Sniper Rifle headshots are not all that easy to come by, a lot of times people score body shots for the kill. I would recommend playing through the level on Normal or Heroic, it is all about your preference. What you will want to do is replay a bunch of high volume areas as this will allow you to get this done in a single play through. The first area with a large group of enemies you get to is the best one for Sniping, so replay it a few time if necessary. Stopping this challenge half-way through and going to play something else will likely kill you progress, so just get it done.

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on. - 2550cR
So, I know that most people will see the two campaign challenges today and will think to do them at the same time. I would urge you against that. While it is tempting, I would urge you not to do that. This can be very irritating on the harder levels and you are best off simply speed-running through the level Nightfall (yes, this means playing through Nightfall twice), which can be done in about seven to ten minutes. A guide to running through the level can be found right here. If speed-running Nightfall is not your cup of tea then playing through Winter Contingency is your best and fastest bet as it is the easiest mission besides Nightfall.
