The Challenges:

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
Well, this is your typical challenge for a Firefight Thursday and will require absolutely no extra work on your end to complete. A hundred and twenty kills is what you would get on average if you completed a single game in the Score Attack playlist and even possibly in the Firefight playlist. "Bulletproof" will require a Firefight playlist game, "Hyper Lethal Vector" will score you at least two-hundred kills, and "The T.G. Opposition" will net you another forty. Relax for this challenge.

Bulletproof - Complete 2 Rounds in a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying. - 2200cR
This will be the most irritating challenge of the day but your best bet for this one is in the four-player Firefight Playlist. A map like Beachhead or Glacier is likely the best for this challenge as you can utilize the jet-pack to hide up on the higher parts of the map. Now, for gametype, I would go for Sniper Fight or Arcadefight. Both of these gametypes grant you access to good power weapons that are effective at range. Utilize the other players and do not venture away from them. Being alone means that you will eventually be outnumbered. Strength in numbers is what you need for this challenge. Remember that you only need to survive two rounds for this one, but dying in the first round will render the game null and void for this challenge.

Hyper Lethal Vector - Kill 200 enemies with headshots in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3000cR
To score headshots in Reach, you need a headshot capable weapon. These include the DMR, the Sniper Rifle, the Magnum Pistol, the Needle Rifle, and the Covenant Focus Beam. Now, two hundred headshots will take about two to three games to complete since you can only score about a hundred and twenty kills per game and not all of them will be headshots. I would definitely recommend completing the "Bulletproof" and "The T.G. Opposition" challenges first since you will undoubtedly score some headshots while working on them. Hopefully, you only need a single game to pick up the remaining headshots.

The T.G. Opposition - Kill 40 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Shotgun. - 2000cR
There is really only one way to reliably get a shotgun in Firefight Matchmaking and that is to go into the standard Firefight playlist and pick Arcadefight. Now, seventy kills will likely just barely take two games to complete because you will likely need to compete with three other players for kills, but it is slightly possible in a single game. The Shotgun is a very short-range weapon so that will make it more difficult. Aim for a smaller map like Courtyard or Corvette and, again, expect to play two games for this challenge.
