Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/16/13

The Challenges:
One Spartan Army - Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3500cR
Well, at least there is another Firefight Matchmaking challenge today, unlike other days this challenge is up here. So, two-hundred and fifty kills is somewhat of an annoying amount. Typically, you can score a hundred and twenty kills in a single Firefight game in the Score Attack playlist. Two-hundred and fifty kills is that awkward spot just out of reach of two games, but overkill for three. Regardless, complete "Be Their Huckleberry" first. Afterwards, you can complete a single game in the Score Attack playlist, like Crashsite, to get those remaining ten kills extremely fast.

Be Their Huckleberry - Kill 200 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol. - 1500cR
This challenge will be very easy and simple to complete as long as you have the right playlist and gametypes. You will want to jump into Score Attack and play Gruntpocalypse. This gametype is all Grunts, which you can score easy headshots on, but, more importantly, it gives you a Magnum Pistol. Be wary of the Ultra Grunts which will take two headshots to slay, however. Two hundred Magnum kills will definitely take a while, two games to be exact, but you need kills for the "One Spartan Army" challenge anyway.

Cannon Fodder - Kill 100 infantry-class foes in the Campaign today. - 2250cR
When these challenges say "infantry-class foes" what they really seem to mean are Grunts. The custom challenge work properly in this regard but not these ones. Now, Grunts can be found on practically every level of the game but it is easiest to just start off with Winter Contingency and work your way through and to the next levels. There are several sections with a crap ton of Grunts so do not be afraid to die and start that section over to score more kills. A hundred kills will not take long and will likely be completed after you get to ONI: Swordbase. This is the only Campaign challenge today so do not expect much help from anywhere else.

Make a Wish... - Earn a Running Riot in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 5343cR
It has only been just over a week since this challenge graced our presence. Aren't we all so "happy" to see it again. So a Running Riot is fifteen kills without dying in multiplayer Matchmaking. And this is just straight mean. Now, you will want a few key elements to get a Running Riot; a large map, a lot of targets, and a powerful weapon. Big Team Battle or Invasion Slayer are likely your best bets. Getting the Sniper on Hemorrhage and then just hanging back and sniping gives you a great chance at this. Now, you can also try Living Dead but the map for that is all personal preference, though it definitely is doable if you put enough time into it. Pick your poison.
