Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/14/13

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

The Challenges:
Shootin' and Lootin' - Kill 400 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 4000cR
Well, four-hundred kills. I would really not expect this to get taken care of by the other challenges. "Short, Controlled Bursts" will bring in a hundred kills, "Flat Tire" will bring in about two-hundred and forty kills, and "The Dream Shake" will bring in maybe thirty kills. Regardless, you will end up short of the four-hundred needed for this challenge by a decent amount. Now, you can solve this by playing a bunch of multiplayer Matchmaking games or a single game in the Score Attack playlist. The choice is entirely yours.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 100 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today. - 2500cR
Automatic weapons in Reach include the AR (Assault Rifle), Needler, Plasma Rifle, Plasma Repeater, and the Brute Spiker. For this challenge, I would start with Winter Contingency on Heroic and play through exclusively using automatic weapons. Any time you damage an enemy and an AI Teammate takes the kill, it will still count for you so make sure you damage large groups of enemies first. This will likely take into ONI: Swordbase but not much further. It can even be completed during Winter Contingency if you replay some sections with lots of enemies like the second time you get off the Falcons.

Flat Tire - Kill 5 enemy vehicles in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
This, as usual will be the focal point challenge of the day and will likely take all of your attention. On the bright side, it You only need five vehicles instead of ten. Now, the only map you can really do this on successfully will be Holdout as it has static Banshee spawns which send you Banshees every two to four minutes. Make the game last as long as possible to get about three to four kills by kiting around the final enemies, typically Hunters. Now, 2X Score Attack will not work for this challenge. Instead, aim for Sniper, Rocket, or FRG Attack. Expect this to take two to three games to complete or maybe even two if you get really lucky.

The Dream Shake - Earn 4 Double Kills in the same match in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 4000cR
Now, a Double Kill is earned when you score two kills within four seconds of each other. This is the most basic form of a multikill and the easiest to obtain. There are no other multiplayer Matchmaking challenges today, so you are all alone for this one. I would suggest heading to the Grifball playlist and playing a game or two in there. Multikills are an extremely common site in Grifball and you can score them without even putting forth any actual effort. This should take a single game of Grifball to complete.
