Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 5/4/13

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

The Challenges:

One Spartan Army - Kill 400 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
So, this is the lone Firefight challenge today and it will take some effort to complete since none of the other challenges have you venturing into the any of the Firefight Matchmaking playlists. I would head for Score Attack as you get kill faster and with less work. On average, you will get a hundred and twenty to a hundred and twenty-five kills per game. Stick to 2X Score Attack, double damage and such, and Gruntpocalypse, all Grunts, are the easiest gametypes. Four games will be enough to complete this challenge. Aim for small maps to speed everything along.

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, however, so it will likely help you make a bit of progress on the "Participation Counts" challenge.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em! - Kill 20 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing. - 2400cR
So, to score a kill while jet-packing, which earns you a specific medal called "Firebird", you need to be actively jet-packing when the kills is scored. Not just in the air and not falling, but actively using the jet-pack. For grenades, using the jet-pack when the opponent is hit, not when the grenade was thrown. Now, regular Team Slayer or Multi Team is likely your best option for this challenge since those playlists tend to have gametypes that allow jet-packs in the loadout selection. Probably take three or four games to complete. Complete this challenge first, as it is the most time consuming.

Participation Counts - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2400cR
This is, technically, the easiest challenge of the day. You will need to playthrough four games from start to finish. If you get booted, disconnected, or quit from any game, it will not count towards this challenge so you must play from start to finish. Four is not a whole lot but you do have two other multiplayer Matchmaking challenges today. "Now I have a Machine Gun" may only have you playing two or so games but "Cook 'em, Clean 'em!" will probably be about three to four games. If you get done early with the other challenges, play whatever you like to finish this one off.
