Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 4/15/13

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

The Challenges:
Gunslinger - Kill 40 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3500cR
Well, there is a chance that the "Oops! All Kills" challenge will take care of this one for you. It all depends on how the games you play go. As said below, Grifball will be the preferred strategy. If it does not take care of it for you, however, then you will need to play some extra games as all the other challenges today are for the Campaign portion of Reach. Since forty kills overall is not a lot, just try to have fun and play a few games that you enjoy. That should take care of any remaining games.

The Little Guys - Kill 200 Grunts in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 2500cR
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 need to go beyond that. If you do, Nightfall will definitely yield some Grunts for you to slay. Complete this challenge before "There Are Many Like..."

There Are Many Like... - Kill 50 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today. - 1500cR
Precision weapons in Reach include the DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), the Sniper Rifle, the Needle Rifle, and the Focus Beam Rifle. The easiest and quickest access to these is the start of ONI: Swordbase where your are immediately equipped with a DMR. Playing through the level on Heroic will allow you to not have all your kills stolen but still have a not too difficult time getting the kills Remember that as long as you damage an enemy, AI teammates taking the kills will still count as yours. Fifty kills should not take long at all and this challenge will likely be completed while working on "The Little Guys."

Oops! All Kills - Earn 10 Multikills in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
A multikill is earned when you score multiple kills within about four seconds of each other. This is easiest to obtain in gametypes like Grifball where stacking up multikills is decently easy. This is the only multiplayer Matchmaking challenge today so you will not get help from anywhere else. Now, a single game of Grifball will likely more than take care of this challenge so no need to worry about this challenge taking longer than a game. You should be much more worried about the campaign challenges today, to be honest.

The Weekly Challenge:
Nightfall: LASO - Complete Nightfall, Legendary, All Skulls On (LASO). - 12000cR

This is a laughable Weekly Challenge, at best. Nightfall is, by far, the easiest level to run on LASO difficulty and the shortest. All in all, it will take you about seven to ten minutes to complete. You will be running through the entire level as fast as you can but halting in some areas. Now, follow this guide for the run to see where you need to go. There is also video of the run here. There will probably be some misfires, and lining up the forklift is a pain, but expect this to take about three or four tries. Since you are not really killing any of the enemies, Co-op is fine for this one but make sure all the players stay very close together.
