Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 5/1/13

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter! Have any ideas or comments about the challenges? Post them down below! 

The Challenges:
Fire When Ready - Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 2100cR
Well, there is only one multiplayer Matchmaking challenge today and it is the "Explosive Ordnance Distribution" challenge. Whether or not it gets you thirty kills depends on how lucky you are. Basically, a standard game will net you about twelve to fifteen kills. I would expect this one to take more since I am urging you into Invasion or Invasion slayer. If you do not get your needed explosive ordnance kills in a single game, however, then it will get you close. More than likely, however, you will need to play an additional game to finish this one off. Grifball is always a great option.

Weapon Swap - Earn 10 sprees in a Firefight Matchmaking game on Heroic or harder. - 2000cR
A spree in Firefight Matchmaking is earned when you score ten kills uninterrupted by death. In a single game, you can likely get up to six sprees if you stay alive the whole time. The first five will be for the first fifty kills, the last one for a hundred kills. You can also get weapon sprees and other miscellaneous sprees for this challenge as it does not state "Killing Sprees". That would, likely require you to get a gametype like Sniper Attack or go into Arcadefight. There are no other Firefight Matchmaking challenges today so this is your focus. You might want to die on purpose once you hit fifty kills to start over the sprees but that is your prerogative.

L.D. Alexandria - Complete Alexandria, without dying, on Legendary with Mythic, Thunderstorm, Tilt, and Tough Luck on. - 5000cR
New Alexandria is, actually, one of the easier levels. Large portions of it can be skipped or simply run through. See how to get through it fast using my LASO guide. As well, you can die during these challenge. All you need to do is "Save and Quit" before the final objective and then load it back up and finish off the challenge. For New Alexandria, you want to save just before you land at the pad at the ONI building. After landing there you will have completed the mission so enjoy these easy, practically free credits.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 3 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
Explosive Ordnance Weapons in Reach include the Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, the Concussion Rifle, and the Plasma Launcher. These weapons are not easy to find anymore since the Action Sack playlist was taken down. Now, your best chance is the third phase of the Invasion gametype in which you will have access to either the Concussion Rifle or the Grenade Launcher. You will have two chances at this if the game is pretty even and you only need three kills in a single game. I would expect this challenge to take multiple tries and you might want to attempt Invasion Slayer as well. You need kills anyway for the "Fire When Ready" challenge, so this will be beneficial.
