Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 3/11/13

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

The Challenges:
Gunslinger - Kill 75 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2250cR
So, I can pretty much guarantee that this challenge will not get taken care of by the "Showtime" challenge unless you are really bad at scoring assists by virtue of being extremely good at scoring kills. Regardless, you will likely need to play a few of extra games to hit the seventy-five kills needed for this challenge. My suggestion would be to play a bunch of Grifball as it will allow you to score about thirty kills per match and have this challenge done in on time flat. Pretty simply challenges today overall.

Showtime - Earn 5 assists in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1250cR
An assist is earned when you deal forty percent damage to an enemy who is killed by someone else. Typically, you would think that this person stole your kill. Now, Multi Team has always been a good place to score assists since there are so many targets and so many people to steal the kills from you. If Multi Team is not your cup of tea than I would recommend heading to Team Objective or just FFA or Team Slayer. The choice is yours so figure out what works best for you. It will likely take a game or two but you should have no problem hitting the five assists.

The Little Guys - Kill 125 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 2000cR
Well, as usual, Grunts are the easiest enemies to kill in Reach. There is no particular level that has a whole lot more Grunts than another, at least from my experience, so you are best off starting with Winter Contingency and working your way through. Play on Heroic so your kills are not stolen by AI Teammates and remember that as long as you damage the enemy first, if the AIs score the killing shot you will still get credit for it. You will definitely need to get to ONI: Swordbase to complete this challenge but you will likely not need to go beyond that. If you do, Nightfall will definitely yield some Grunts for you to slay.

Heroic Court - Kill 100 enemies on Overlook on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1000cR
This is the lone Firefight Matchmaking challenge for today and will likely take you very little time to complete. Overlook is a mediocre map but playable with the right gametype. All though it can be annoying solo, your best bet for this challenge is the Score Attack playlist. Either 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse will give you what you need for this challenge. Either gametype will net you a hundred and twenty or so kills, twenty more than what is needed for this challenge. Good luck and get to it.

The Weekly Challenge:
Tip of the Spear: LASO - Complete Tip of the Spear, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO). - 130000cR

Well, it has certainly been a while since we had a LASO challenge, hasn't it? Do not fret, because Tip of the Spear was hardly one of the hardest LASO missions as long as you know the strategies. Now, it is definitely a long mission however with some parts taking ten times longer than normal. However, follow the strategies and you should be all set. I would suggest playing this solo, though co-op has its advantages (like actually getting to use checkpoints). If you do die in a solo run, you can hit "Start" and quickly "Save and Quit" before you actually die. Then you can resume campaign and start from the most recent checkpoint. Another reason for going solo is that Co-op will scale the difficulty up making enemies harder to kill. They are hard enough with LASO, why make it harder?
