Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 3/23/13

The Challenges:

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3000cR
Ahh, a hundred enemies. Pretty much your standard challenge on a day like today, with such simple challenges. Thankfully, today's challenges completely take care of this and will require no extra work. "Not as Clumsy or Random..." will provide ten or so kills while "Five-time Champs" will bring in another seventy or so but you will get the most kills while working on the "That Pink Mist" challenge. Probably four or five games of Firefight will be required which is likely four hundred or so kills. As I said, not at all a challenge.

Not as Clumsy or Random... - Earn 5 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
Thankfully, this challenge is very, very easy and should only take a single game to complete. The trick is to make sure that you are using the rights playlist and gametype for the challenge. For our purposes, needing kills with precision weapons (DMR, Sniper Rifle, Needle Rifle, and Covenant Beam Rifle), we will want to play in either the Team Snipers or Team SWAT playlist which use the Sniper Rifle and DMR respectively. Five kills will be easy enough to hit in a single game as you should be hitting ten to fifteen kills per game anyway. One game and then just move on to the other challenges.

That Pink Mist - Kill 200 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3000cR
This one will take a lot of work to complete, hold no false notions. If there was still Firefight Doubles, it would be a different story but, alas!, that playlist is gone. You will need to play in the standard Firefight playlist since you need the later rounds that bring about the Mythic skull. Otherwise, many enemies will die before the Supercombine kills them. Now, aim for Arcadefight as the FRG loadout also has a Needler. Expect for this to possibly take three to four games to complete as you need to compete with other players for kills.

Five-time Champ - Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 4343cR
Well, time to win some games, right? That is what this challenge is all about. Now, you need five wins today, which may very well take up to ten games to complete. The trick to scoring wins in Reach is to give yourself the right set up. First off, don't play games that have more than two teams (or FFAs). More teams automatically lowers you chances of winning. Stick with gametypes you enjoy and are comfortable with as you will likely play better in them. Finally, play with teammate you know and normally win with since you are more likely to win that way.
