Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 3/17/13

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

The Challenges:
Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3000cR
Well, a hundred kills is not anything to really cause you any pause or headaches today. Basically, it is taken care of for you. All of the work will be done by the "Survivor" and "The Little Guys" challenges, it just depends which one you decide to do first. Both will score you over a hundred kills and since you can kill enemies in any mode of Reach today, you are all set. Just try to have fun and relax. It is St. Patrick's Day after all.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 50 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today. - 2000cR
When these challenges say "infantry-class foes" what they really seem to mean are Grunts. The custom challenge work properly in this regard but not these ones. Now, Grunts can be found on practically every level of the game but it is easiest to just start off with Winter Contingency and work your way through. Ironically, you are basically already doing this challenge, though for a greater amount, with "The Little Guys" challenge. No extra work is needed, however. Just complete "The Little Guys" and this challenge is completely taken care of. Have fun.

Survivor - Earn 9 Sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is earned when you score ten kills in a row without dying. You can get up to five sprees, four short of what you need for this challenge, by scoring fifty kills without dying. You should be scoring these quite easily so this challenge should take little time to complete. This challenge does not stipulate just Killing Sprees so weapon and other miscellaneous sprees will also count. Once you hit fifty kills I would just die so you can start those sprees over and have this done in no time flat. 2X Score Attack and Gruntpocalypse are the preferred gametypes for this challenge.

The Little Guys - Kill 135 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 2200cR
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.
