Halo Reach Daily and Weekly Challenges Guide - 6/24/13

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

The Challenges:

Fire When Ready - Kill 50 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking - 3000cR
Well, every single challenge today, including the Weekly Challenge, is in multiplayer Matchmaking. Hell, it isn't even a Friday. I can't remember this happening anytime recently but I guess it is not really a special occasion, to be honest. The fifty kills required for this challenge are nothing at all to be intimidated by thanks to all the other challenges today. Just the "This Is My Rifle..." challenge will finish this off but you are also playing a bunch of games today for the Weekly Challenge anyway.  These are just easy, free credits.

This is My Rifle... - Earn 100 kills with precision weapons in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2500cR
Precision weapons include the DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), the Sniper, the Focus Beam Rifle, and the Needle Rifle. There are a multitude of playlists that start you out with precision weapons so getting forty kills is basically just a small grind. Team SWAT, Team Snipers, MLG, and Arena all start you off with precision weapons, typically, and are ideal playlists for getting this challenge completed. A hundred kills will likely take eight to ten games to complete so just take it slow. You are playing a ton of multiplayer Matchmaking today anyway, so work on this challenge last.

Better, Closer, Warmer - Earn at least 10 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2500cR
To be extremely honest, you should have no trouble with this challenge. This score total is well below what you should be hitting on average in even a slayer match in which kills can be limited. However, if today is proving difficult for you for scoring kills, head to an objective gametype where you have more time or just head to Grifball. Grifball makes everything easier as it will allow you to score almost thirty kills per game and no one has anywhere to hide as well as spawning really fast. You will need ten kills in a game for the "Killing Frenzy" challenge anyway, so no worries.

Killing Frenzy - Earn a Killing Frenzy in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 4000cR
So, a Killing Frenzy is earned when you score ten kills without dying. You will know that you are half way there (five kills) when you hit a Killing Spree. Now, objective gametypes are probably your best bet for this but there is something to be said for Grifball if you really have the timing down, or start spawn camping like crazy which is somewhat of a douche move. Living Dead is also a good option on a map like Boardwalk but not Alpha Zombies, I have found. It will probably take a few games to nail this one down but you need a ton of games for the Weekly Challenge anyway.

The Weekly Challenge:
That's Dedication, Holmes - Complete 77 games in multiplayer Matchmaking this week. - 7777cR

We have had this challenge three times before. Only the very first time was it for seventy-seven games. All the other times it was for a hundred and fifty. Count yourselves lucky. This means you need to play eleven games a day but try to get as many games as possible done in the first few days of the week. Now, first off, SWAT, Living Dead, and even Grifball tend to have the shortest games. Since you are not going for kills Grifball can be a much faster game if you just focus on planting the bomb. On Living Dead, do not camp. Again, we are not going for kills, but for game completion. And in SWAT, get kills as fast as you can since that is how you complete the game. Mix things up. Games will get stale after seventy-seven playthroughs in a week. Spread out the games played as well and try not to have them all in one giant block. And, please, do not idle in games. 343i will ban you for that.
