Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 5/2/13

The Challenges:
Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
This is pretty much a joke of a challenge. I'm not exactly sure why this is here and what the point is since it is completely overshadowed by all the other challenges. This challenge is asking you to score a hundred and twenty kills, which you can get in a standard game of Score Attack, while all the other challenges will have you playing several games today, each one scoring about a hundred and twenty kills. One seem superfluous, doesn't it? Guess this is a bonus for everyone playing Firefight today.

On the Sixth Respawn... - Complete a Firefight Matchmaking game with fewer than 5 deaths. - 2000cR
This is actually a really easy challenge no matter what gametype you do this in. Obviously, anything in the standard Firefight playlist will be harder since you need to survive through an entire set as opposed to a single round in the Score Attack playlist. You can easily get this completed while working on the other challenges, however, so there is no need to actually worry about this. Just pick larger maps to put more distance between you and the Covenant forces so they have a much lower chance of killing you.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2800cR
Elites are the hardest enemies to kill in Firefight Matchmaking. This challenge will, however, most likely take two games to complete since I am urging you to play in the Score Attack Playlist. Aim for 2X Score Attack since the final wave will always be twenty or so Elites. Do your best to make sure that none of them kill themselves and you will have this done in two easy games. Now, I would suggest completing this challenge last as "J.H. Death Machine" will likely get you a bunch of Elites kills as well. Hopefully that means less games of 2X Score Attack after "J.H. Death Machine" is completed.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 70 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher. - 2250cR
This is the one challenge that, so to speak, throws a wrench into the plans and will cause some trouble (i.e. take more time) for you. The Grenade Launcher is an okay weapon, but it is not seen much in the Score Attack playlist, which you will be in for the "Demon" challenge. Now, if you can get the gametype Grenade Attack while working on "More Like In Post" then you can get this done with little effort but, most likely, you will need to venture into the Firefight playlist once that challenge is completed and aim for Arcadefight. One of the loadouts in that gametype is the Grenade Launcher and you should be able to get it done relatively easily. There is a possibility it will take two games, however, so be warned.
