Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 3/24/13

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
I am unsure whether or not this challenge will be taken care of today by the others. There is a chance, depending on how many enemies you run into while working on "The Little Guys" challenge but, most likely, you will end up short by about twenty or thirty kills. To take care of this, I would recommend a few games in multiplayer Matchmaking or a single game of Firefight Matchmaking. The choice is yours but either should suffice. Just have fun with it.

Tough Luck... On - Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Tough Luck Skull on. - 2500cR
The Tough Luck skull causes all enemies in the Campaign to avoid your shots and dodge grenades more often. Since this does not really change the difficulty too much, most people should have no problem with this skull. As per the usual, the easiest way to complete this challenge will be doing a speedrun of the level Nightfall, which takes about seven to ten minutes. I would not recommend doing this with multiple players as that is likely to create other issues. A guide to speed-running through Nightfall can be found here. You can also just do a mission like Winter Contingency as it is really short and easy to complete but Nightfall is definitely the fastest mission. Before completing this, however, look below at the next challenge.

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on. - 2500cR
Most people will see the two campaign challenges today and will think to do them at the same time. This time, they are definitely right. Since you only need to be on "Heroic" for both challenges, and the skulls are relatively minor, these are basically free credits. The Iron skull will cause any death to restart the level, if solo, or reverting to the last checkpoint, if playing co-op. A guide to running through the level can be found right here. If speed-running Nightfall is not your cup of tea then playing through Winter Contingency is your best and fastest bet as it is the easiest mission besides Nightfall but still do both challenges at once.

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. I would get "Tough Luck... On" and "Iron Will" out of the way first and then move on to this challenge.
