The Challenges:

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3000cR
As usual, for a Thursday, it is time for a day full of Firefight Matchmaking challenges, much to the surprise of no one. This challenge is especially easy today since you will likely be playing about two games for the other challenges today. "Heroic Holdout" will have you playing a single game of 2X Score Attack for a hundred and twenty kills while "Above the Law" will have you completing a game in the Firefight playlist for another hundred or so kills. "Katanarama" will not add any extra kills but they are not really needed. The two-hundred or so you get from the other challenges will take care of this one for you.

Heroic Holdout - Kill 100 enemies on Holdout on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Now, the only reason I sort of like Holdout now is because of those static Banshee spawns which always help me out with the "Flat Tire" every so often. How do I feel about it when I do not need those vehicle kills? Meh. It is decent enough, I guess, but not one of the best maps I have seen. Now, your best option for this will actually be the Score Attack playlist. You can play a single game of Score Attack and get all these kills in a single go. You should get about a hundred and twenty on average so this is pretty much taken care of. Go for 2X Score Attack to help with the "Katanarama" challenge. Do this challenge last, however, since you may get this map for "Above the Law."

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. However, you are trying to survive the first round of that game, so the Sword might not be the best weapon. 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 "Heroic Holdout" challenge, I would go the Score Attack route today.

Above the Law - Complete a Round in Firefight Matchmaking without dying. - 2000cR
A whole round without dying is not as hard as it seems though there are more stipulations to this challenge than it would seem. First off, a round is comprised of five waves and three rounds make up a set. All games in Score Attack are a single round and all games in the Firefight playlist are a single set. Now, this needs to be done in the first round of a game if you are in the Firefight playlist. Dying once will make all subsequent rounds not count, which is a really stupid issue that should have been fixed a while ago. This should be much easiest to complete in the Firefight playlist as you will have three teammates with you and you can spend more time hiding if needed. This can also definitely be completed in Score Attack, but you will be on your own in that playlist.
