Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/17/13

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
Well, I am pretty sure today that this challenge will get taken care of by the other challenges today. You just need a hundred and eighty for these credits. "Unto The Breach" will score you two-hundred and forty kills, "Short, Controlled Bursts" will probably bring in another two-hundred to two-hundred and fifty kills, and then "Double Nickels" will bring in about twenty to thirty kills or more depending on how long it takes you. Unless my high school math skills are extremely rusty, that all together equals more than a hundred and eighty kills. Good luck and get to slayin'.

Unto The Breach - Kill 150 enemies on Corvette in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1125cR
I actually enjoy Corvette, maybe because it is basically a skeleton of Midship from Halo 3, and I do not typically enjoy Covenant themed stuff. It is a close-quarters map so games should go by pretty fast. I would stick to the Score Attack playlist and choose either 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse (which is the easier one). Either gametype will let you score about a hundred and twenty kill per game which means that you will need to play two games to complete this challenge. I really wish they would have just put this at two-hundred kills, to be honest but the credit value isn't that high anyway.

Short, Controlled Bursts - Kill 200 enemies with automatic weapons in the Campaign today. - 3000cR
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 past ONI: Swordbase and onto Nightfall. 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 but, for this many kills, it is likely easier to just play through the levels.

Double Nickels - Earn 2 Killing Sprees in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 3000cR
A Killing Spree is earned in multiplayer Matchmaking when you score five kills without dying. First off is a Killing Spree at five kills and then a Killing Frenzy at ten kills and so on. You only need two in a single game so this is not some great feat and you do not need a Killing Frenzy. Now, Living Dead is almost always a good playlist for this challenge, especially on a map like Boardwalk. You can also try for this in many objective games types. The choice is yours so have fun with it and try to take it easy or head to different gametypes if you are having trouble with the challenge.
