Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 5/6/13

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, unless you decide to complete the Weekly Challenge today, which has you completing four continuous sets of Firefight, you will not get these four hundred kills taken care of by the other challenges today. "Roast 'em, Toast 'em" will bring in about ten to fifteen kills, "Freelancing" will bring in about thirty to fifty kills, and "Double Double" will probably bring in no extra kills. To finish of the remaining three-hundred and fifty or so kills, you are best off playing three games in the Score Attack playlist, as each one will get you a hundred and twenty kills. Or you can just do the Weekly Challenge. The choice is all yours.

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 10 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal. - 2400cR
Well, we all know the drill for this challenge. First off, load up Rally Point Alpha for the level Exodus, as stipulated by the challenge, which will start you right where you get the jet pack. Go across the chasm and start scoring your kills. You need to actively be using the jet-pack, not falling or jumping when you score the kill for it to count. It doesn't matter if you are using the jet-pack when you throw a grenade, you need to be using when the grenade explodes. Replay this section a few times to reach thirty-five kills.

Freelancing - Earn at least 21 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2100cR
Well, this challenge certainly is not as good as it was before. Apparently, one more kills means you get one-thousand, four hundred credits less as compared to the last time we had this challenge. Anyway, it can be done so easily without even having to really try. The gametype is Grifball and it will allow you to get thirty or so kills in a single game without any concerted effort. Now, some of you are likely opposed to Grifball so might I instead suggest Multi Team (with an objective based gametype) or Invasion. The other challenges will have you in either one so have fun.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Now, a Double Kill is when you score two kills within four seconds of each other and this is the most common type of multi kill. You will need to space these out so you do not stack to high multi kills, which will not count for this challenge. Your best bet for getting these Double Kills is, without a doubt, Grifball as it allows you to score tons and tons of kill and multi kills. However, you will definitely have the chance to get Double Kills if you are working with explosive ordnance in a playlist like Invasion or such, so to try to get some there as well. Grifball is still your best bet though.

The Weekly Challenge:
Endure: The Return - Complete four sets on any Firefight map in co-op play on Heroic or harder. - 30000cR

This is a really easy challenge that is not much of a challenge at all to be honest. You need to complete four consecutive sets in a Firefight game. This will need to be in a custom Firefight game since no game of Firefight Matchmaking will have four sets and much less have you surviving all of them. You will also need someone to play with you. You can either get a friend online, get a friend at your house, or just have an extra controller sit there for the additional player. Now, since this is not in Matchmaking, you can set the gametype settings to whatever you want. I would suggest Invincibility, Unlimited Ammunition, Unlimited Armor Abilities, and fooling around with the makeup of the various waves. A ton of gametypes are present in Fileshares that already have this done for you but you will need to search for them. This will honestly not take a long time, especially on Heroic, and make sure you pick a small map, like Corvette.
