Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 5/8/13

The Challenges:

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3000cR
Well, besides this challenge which is asking you to score fifty kills today in multiplayer Matchmaking, there is one other multiplayer Matchmaking challenge. The "Sticky Icky Icky" challenge, however, will likely not get you near fifty kills. You will maybe get thirty or so but, after that, you are on your own. For those kills, just do whatever you want. Grifball is the easiest option as you can get thirty or so kills per game but just play whatever gametype you enjoy. Should take a game or two to finish off.

Just Holdout - Kill 125 enemies on Holdout in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1100cR
This is an extremely easy challenge that you do not really need to worry about but it will be forcing you to play two games of Firefight Matchmaking. My advice is to stick to the Score Attack playlist so you can get this map. For the first game, aim for Gruntpocalypse or 2X Score Attack. Those two are simply the fastest gametypes for Firefight Matchmaking. After you have completed the first game, that second game can be Crashsite or whatever would be preferable for you. Crashsite is typically best as you can quickly end the game once you have gotten the kills you need by just dying or letting the generator explode.

Points Pyramid - Score 100,000 points on any Campaign mission. - 3500cR
Some people may look at this challenge and think, "Holy shit, that is a lot of point." In reality, you just need the right mission and the right strategy. For us, that mission will be New Alexandria and the strategy will be Banshee Hunting. First off, load up the mission on Heroic with the Tough Luck, Catch, Famine, Thunderstorm, and Iron Skulls on. All of these need to be on or it will take longer. Then just go around killing Banshees and Phantoms in the Flacon. Do not complete the objectives at all. Once your hit a hundred thousand points, you can just quit and this challenge is done. Video of this strategy is located here.

Stick Icky Icky - Earn 3 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2250cR
Sticky grenades (aka Plasma Grenades) are one of the more interesting weapons in the Halo sandbox and we have had them since Halo CE. You need to get three sticky kills with these in a single game. That means that you stick someone and then the grenade explodes and kills them. It does not count if people near the player die from the explosion, it only counts the player you stuck. The best playlist for this challenge is Multi Team since you can get the Elite Slayer gametype where you always spawn with a single Plasma Grenade. In Multi Team you have a bunch of targets so I would try specifically for those. Now, Slayer Pro in the MLG playlist is also an option, but you do not have as many targets. Remember, you need three in a single game.
