Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/21/13

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 150 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 5343cR
Well, a hundred and fifty kills today in any game mode in Reach. Like usual, at this point in the week, this challenge will be taken care of by the other challenges. "The House of Blue Leaves" challenge will get you a hundred and twenty kills, or so, unless you play in the standard Firefight playlist. The "Short, Controlled Bursts" challenge will get you another two-hundred kills. All in all, this definitely takes care of with the other challenges.

Return of the Mack - Kill 35 Elites in Campaign today on Normal or harder. - 3000cR
Elites are the hardest enemies that you will face in Campaign but they are neither rare nor plentiful in the game. The best mission to find them on is ONI: Swordbase, the second level of the campaign. Play on Heroic so AI teammates are not stealing your kills. As well, remember that as long as you damage the Elite, an AI teammate can get the kill and it will still count as yours. One playthrough of ONI will likely not be enough to complete this challenge so play through to Nightfall if you need to. You are already playing these levels for the "Short, Controlled Bursts" challenge so just make sure you use automatic weapons.

The House of Blue Leaves - Kill 88 enemies in a single Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic. - 2500cR
So, this one is actually not much of a challenge, to be honest, but the older version was for almost two-hundred kills, so I am not complaining. Eighty-eight kills in Firefight Matchmaking is actually a pretty small amount of kills and can be accomplished in practically any of the Firefight playlists. 2X Score Attack or Gruntpocalypse in the Score Attack playlist are likely your best bets to complete this challenge. You can also jump into the standard Firefight playlist which I am not recommending for this challenge, but I know that some people like having a large team for Firefight. Regardless, this should only take a single game to complete.

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 well into ONI: Swordbase and possibly into 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.
