Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 2/5/13

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
Well, the hope today is that this challenge will be taken care of by the "Scoped" challenge which is down below. It is asking you to get a hundred kills with precision weapons in Firefight Matchmaking. To get that, you will need to complete a single game in the Score Attack playlist which will likely yield about a hundred and twenty kills, just enough to complete this challenge. There is a definite chance that you can end up short of this number, however, so pick a large map. Covies are less likely to kill themselves on larger maps.

Scoped - Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons. - 2000cR
Precision weapons in Reach include the DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), the Sniper Rifle, the Needle Rifle, and the Covenant Focus Beam. In Firefight Matchmaking, however, the easiest weapon to get your hands on will be the DMR. To get a DMR very fast, you will want to go into the Score Attack playlist and go for either 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse. Gruntpocalypse will allow you to score very easy headshots as all the enemies will be Grunts. This challenge will likely take a single game to complete unless you use weapons other than precision weapons, which is just counter-productive.

Golden Opportunity - Find and kill the Gold Ranger-class Elite in any Campaign mission on Heroic or harder. - 5343cR
For those who are unfamiliar, these are typically referred to as BoBs (Born-on-Boards, which is a Marathon reference). There is one on basically every mission as long as you are on Heroic or Legendary but the easiest one to get is on ONI: Swordbase. Load up Rally Point Bravo and then rush forward to where you enter the base. Look to the left and you will see a dual-wielding Elite which is a BoB. If it does not appear continue on until you reach the multiplayer shotgun spawn for the Swordbase map. There should be one there. However, there may be none there at all. It happens. Just reload if it does.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 3 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2250cR
Sticky grenades (aka Plasma Grenades) are one of the more interesting weapons in the Halo sandbox and we have had them since Halo CE. Even though we have had them all that time, I still suck with them so, hopefully, you are better than me. You need to get three 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 are the player die from the explosion, it is only counting the player you stuck. The best playlist that I know of 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 three in a single game.
