Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 3/14/13

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
Um, yeah. I'm not writing anything substantive for this challenge. Just look below at the other challenges and anything you might be wondering will be explained to you. "A Walk in the..." is asking for a thousand kills. That will more than take care of this. Get going and get to the other challenges.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Well, this is a great day for this challenge, wouldn't you say? You only need a thousand kills on Beachhead, which seems to be no small task along with this. Now, the only map you can really do this on successfully will be Holdout as it has static Banshee spawns which send you Banshees every two to four minutes. Make the game last as long as possible to get about three to four kills by kiting around the final enemies, typically Hunters. Now, 2X Score Attack will not work for this challenge. Instead, aim for Sniper, Rocket, or FRG Attack. Expect this to take one to two games to complete. Just get it out of the way so you can go on to the next challenge.

A Walk in the... - Kill 1000 enemies on Beachhead in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3000cR
So, this will be the big challenge of the day, clearly, and will take most of your time today. No point in fighting it as this challenge is not actually hard, just a grind. Now, you only really have on option for this challenge nowadays. Head into the Score Attack playlist, where you will get about a hundred and twenty kills per game, meaning you need to play nine games. Try to go for 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse as either one will allow you to get a bunch of kills quite easily. You can try for the Firefight playlist, but I would not recommend it as getting this map will be difficult.

Katanarama - Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
You have two options for this challenge and both are pretty easy. The first option is to head to the standard Firefight playlist and get a game of Arcadefight. One of the loadouts there has the Energy Sword, so just score a single kill with it. The other option is going to the Score Attack playlist and doing 2X Score Attack. The final wave is always Elites and a few will have swords. Kill one of them, get his sword, and score the kill for the challenge. Personally, due to the "A Walk in the..." challenge, I would go the Score Attack route.

  1. I've noticed that sometimes the Phantoms will drop Wraiths during the 5th wave on Beachhead(the same one as the Elites) in Score Attack and 2x Score Attack. If you do it in 2x, a single sticky will blow it up.

  2. A Ghost will get dropped sometimes, too. The Target Locator, if you can save it for late in the game, is a good way to take care of the vehicles from distance.
