Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 4/25/13

The Challenges:
One Spartan Army - Kill 250 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3500cR
Well, it is a Firefight Thursday, sparing the one lone campaign challenge below. Not sure what happened there, to be honest. Anyway, complete "L.D. Pillar" first to score about a hundred or so kills and then move on to the Firefight challenges. The hope is that you will get enough kills while playing campaign that you only need to play a single game to complete this challenge. "Katanarama" and "A Simple Spree" will provide no additional kills for this challenge as they will both be taken care of in a single game. If you are still short after one game, hop on for another and finish this challenge off.

Katanarama - Kill 1 enemies using the Energy Sword in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
You have two options for this challenge and both are pretty easy. The first option is to head to the standard Firefight playlist and get a game of Arcadefight. One of the loadouts there has the Energy Sword, so just score a single kill with it. The other option is going to the Score Attack playlist and doing 2X Score Attack. The final wave is always Elites and a few will have swords. Kill one of them, get his sword, and score the kill for the challenge. Personally, due to "One Spartan Army" challenge, I would go the Score Attack route today.

L.D. Pillar - Complete The Pillar of Autumn, without dying, with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Touch Luck on. - 5000cR
They know its Thursday, right? I thought that meant only Firefight Matchmaking challenges. Guess not. Well, "L.D. Pillar" will take up a large amount of the day. The Pillar of Autumn is a decently long level and these skulls will actually make the level more difficult. Mythic will double the health of all enemies, Thunderstorm will upgrade them all, Tilt changes how much damage you and your enemies do, and Tough Luck makes enemies dodge more often. See the LASO guide for tips and tricks to get through this level. Remember that you can die as much as you want but you need to Save and Quit and reload the level before the last objective to complete the challenge.

A Simple Spree - Earn any spree in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is ten kills uninterrupted by death or the end of the game. I am encouraging you to complete two games of Firefight Matchmaking in the Score Attack playlist as this will complete the "One Spartan Army" challenge for you. You really should have no trouble getting the spree as you will, almost always, face squads of Grunts first wave of Firefight. This will allow you tons of easy kills and a very easy spree. Just finish playing through for the other challenge.
