Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 5/22/13

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 enemy kills today actually does not look too challenging when all the other challenges are taken into account. Basically, the "That Pink Mist" challenge will bring in about a hundred and twenty to two-hundred and forty kills, the "There Are Many Like..." challenge will bring in about a hundred kills, and the "Now I have a Machine Gun" challenge will bring in a further thirty to forty kills. All in all, nothing for you to be worried about as this challenge is completely taken care of about twice over.

That Pink Mist - Kill 40 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2200cR
So this will definitely be one of the harder challenges of the day. A Supercombine occurs when you stick enough enemies with needles that the resulting explosion kills them. It has to be the explosion that kills them, not the final needs that trigger the explosion, which is what happens with all Grunts unless the Mythic Skull is on. Now, the Firefight playlist is your best bet for this challenge and you will want the gametype Arcadefight as it will allow you to choose a loadout with an FRG and a Needler. These weapons will have unlimited ammunition. Now, this might take two games because you will have three other players to compete with, but expect the kills to start going up once the second round starts as the Mythic Skull will then be on.

There Are Many Like... - Kill 100 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today. - 2500cR
There are several missions that start you with precision weapons. "Nightfall" will start you with a Sniper Rifle, while ONI: Swordbase and Tip of the Spear will start you with DMRs. Your best bet may be to simply play through two of those levels in a row. Now, playing through two of these levels should hit you about a hundred kills if you are constantly using precision weapons and being smart with your ammunition. You can also replay certain level if you think it will get you enough kills faster. It is entirely up to you, however. Pick your poison, but expect this to take a decent bit.

Now I have a Machine Gun - Earn 20 kills with automatic weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Automatic weapons in Halo Reach include the AR, the Plasma Rifle, the Plasma Repeater, the Needler, and the Brute Spiker. You will not really get to see the Brute Spike too much in multiplayer Matchmaking so focus on the AR and the Needler. Multi Team has always fared well for me with this challenge since you almost always start out with an AR and everyone is killing each other. Due to trying to get jet-packing kills, however, you may want to stick with Team Slayer. This will only take a few games to complete but it is the lone multiplayer Matchmaking game today, so these are the only games you need to play in multiplayer.
