Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/27/13

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

The Challenges:

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3000cR
Well, you will be visiting all the major modes of Reach today for these challenge and that means only one is in multiplayer Matchmaking like this one. I would not be too surprised if that challenge actually takes care of this one or brings it very close. "Killing Frenzy," as the name implies, requires you to score a Killing Frenzy and this is no small feat unless you are boasting or the like. If you do happen to finish this before scoring fifty kills in multiplayer Matchmaking, head to Grifball were the kills practically lay down in front of you.

Weapon Swap - Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder. - 2000cR
A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is earned when you score ten kills uninterrupted by death. In a single game, you can likely get up to six sprees if you stay alive the whole time. The first five will be for the first fifty kills, the last one for a hundred kills. You can also get weapon sprees and other miscellaneous sprees for this challenge as it does not state "Killing Sprees". That would, likely require you to get a gametype like Sniper Attack or go into Arcadefight. There are no other Firefight Matchmaking challenges today so this is your focus. You might want to die on purpose once you hit fifty kills to start over the sprees but that is your prerogative.

A Side of Heuvos - Kill 60 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal. - 2500cR
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.

Killing Frenzy - Earn a Killing Frenzy in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 4000cR
So, a Killing Frenzy is earned when you score ten kills without dying. You will know that you are half way there (five kills) when you hit a Killing Spree. Now, objective gametypes are probably your best bet for this but there is something to be said for Grifball if you really have the timing down, or start spawn camping like crazy which is somewhat of a douche move. Living Dead is also a good option on a map like Boardwalk but not Alpha Zombies, I have found. It will probably take a few games to nail this one down but you need kills for "Fire When Ready" anyway.
