Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/1/13

The Challenges:

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2343cR
Hmm, another day of just multiplayer Matchmaking challenges. Two days in a row is somewhat odd for us. Regardless, you will hopefully not have much to do for this challenge. The "You Want This, Don't You?" and "Sweep the Leg" challenges will not add much for this challenge as they are overshadowed by the "Put Your Quarter Up" challenge. It is asking you to complete fifteen games today. So if you get twelve kills per game, that will complete this challenge. You will likely score more if you head into objective playlists.

You Want This, Don't You? - Earn 12 kills with precision weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 3000cR
Now, this challenge, asking you to hit twelve kills in a single game with precision weapons (i.e. DMR, Sniper Rifle), should not be a challenge for most players. What you will want to do is to head for either Team SWAT or Team Snipers. I would pick Team SWAT as it will allow you to vote for some objective gametypes in Matchmaking. Objective games will allow you to get well more kills than slayer games due to the lack of a kill limit but it can sometimes be difficult to get precision weapons. Now, this will likely take a few tries for some but keep at it. You need to play fifteen games today anyway.

Sweep the Leg - Perform an Assassination in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2000cR
This is a simple enough challenge that I would bet that most players could probably complete with every other game they play. To score an assassination, you need to get behind an opponent and hold the melee button. This will trigger and assassination animation that needs to mostly complete for the assassination to count. I would head for Team Snipers were you can easily sneak around people and score assassination since they only typically focus on what is right in front of them. Attempts on elevations and in the air will go faster so aim for those if you keep getting show-stopped. Go for this one after you complete "You Want This, Don't You?."

Put Your Quarter Up - Complete 15 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2750cR
So, unlike Halo 4, to complete a game in Reach you need to be in it from start to finish, which is infinitely better than the join-session-in-progress crap that is Halo 4's matchmaking. If you get booted, disconnected, or quit from the game, it will not count towards this challenge. Team SWAT, Living Dead, and Grifball are the fastest playlists but can drag on. And remember, you do not need to win these games, just complete them. Take care of the "You Want This, Don't You?" and "Sweep the Leg" challenges first, which will take two or three games to complete. The rest of the games are entire up to you.
