Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/15/13

The Challenges:

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
Well, a hundred and twenty enemy kills is not really a lot, as it is what you would typically get in a standard game in the Score Attack playlist. However, we will likely not be in the Score Attack playlist today thanks to the "That Pink Mist" challenge. You will likely be playing two games in the standard Firefight playlist for that challenge and that hopefully should be enough for you to reach a hundred and twenty kills. You will hit more than seventy kill since not all will be super-combine kills. As well, it will not take the full second game to finish it off so go all out and make sure you get the kills you need.

A Great Friend - Earn 30 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 3250cR
Oh, assists. This is one of the more aggravating challenges because you basically have to fail at killing your opponents, but it is refreshing to see a different type of challenge in here. Dealing an opponent forty percent damage and then having someone else take the kill will net you an assist. Now, the best gametype for assists, without a doubt, is the Multi Team gametype since you have a bunch of targets and a bunch of people to steal those targets from you. Do not expect to get thirty in a single game, but five to ten is not uncommon; it just depends on how hard you try for the assists. Expect this to take three to six games to complete.

That Pink Mist - Kill 70 enemies with a Supercombine from the Needler or Needle Rifle in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2000cR
So this will definitely be the hardest challenge of the day. A Supercombine occurs when you stick enough enemies with needles that the resulting explosion kills them. It has to be the explosion that kills them, not the final needs that trigger the explosion, which is what happens with all grunts unless the Mythic Skull is on. Now, the Firefight playlist is your best bet for this challenge and you will want the gametype Arcadefight NEP as it will allow you to choose a loadout with an FRG and a Needler. These weapons will have unlimited ammunition. Now, this might take two games because you will have three other players to compete with, but expect the kills to start going up once the second round starts as the Mythic Skull will then be on.

Home Field Advantage - Win 8 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 4400cR
Eight wins can definitely be challenging to some but this needs challenge little explanation. There is only one other multiplayer Matchmaking challenges today, the "A Great Friend" challenge asking you to score thirty assists today, but it will likely not help you score wins. To help you score wins, stick to gametypes with no more than two teams, in a playlist you are good at, and with people you know on your team. This can take up to sixteen games to complete so be ready for the long haul. Grifball is one of the faster gametypes, along with Team SWAT. This really depends upon your personal preference here but make sure you start on this early.
