Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/2/13

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

The Challenges:
Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
Only thanks to this challenge will you be going into every mode of Halo Reach today. While "Cook 'em, Clean 'em" and "Not as Clumsy or Random" are multiplayer Matchmaking challenges and "House of Pain" is for Campaign, this challenge is the lone Firefight Matchmaking challenge. Scoring a hundred and twenty kills is pretty standard as that it what you would typically score in a single game in the Score Attack playlist. Now, Gruntpocalypse is the easiest option but you would be best off playing it on a large map. That way the Grunts are less likely to accidentally kill themselves with Grenades or FRGs.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em - Kill 15 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing. - 1800cR
So, to score a kill while jet-packing, which earns you a specific medal called "Firebird", you need to be actively jet-packing when the kills is scored. Not just in the air and not falling, but actively using the jet-pack. For grenades, using the jet-pack when the opponent is hit, not when the grenade was thrown. Now, regular Team Slayer or Multi Team is likely your best option for this challenge since those playlists tend to have gametypes that allow jet-packs in the loadout selection. Probably take two or three games to complete.

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.

House of Pain - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic with Mythic, Tilt, and Thunderstorm on. - 2500cR
Been a while since I have seen this challenge, to be honest. The Mythic skull causes all enemies to have double health, the Tilts makes their strengths stronger and their weaknesses weaker, and the Thunderstorm skull will upgrade all enemies (typically to Ultras). This can actually make a typically simple level a complete pain to complete. For this reason, I will suggest running through Nightfall as it can be completed in under ten minutes and you only have to stop and fight a few enemies. Follow the LASO guide for the correct route.
