Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/16/13

The Challenges:

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2343cR
Well, this challenge should be taken care of today by all the other challenges. Since you have two challenges that will require separate games of Firefight Matchmaking, a hundred and eighty kills is somewhat of a joke. The "Demon" challenge will only let you get about two-hundred and forty kills, while "Climb Points Mountain" will probably get your several hundred. Finally, the "Throwing Fireballs" challenge will not add much but maybe forty or fifty kills to the total. So, well above a hundred and eighty kills, right? As I said, somewhat of a joke today but enjoy the free credits.

Demon - Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2800cR
Well, this will be nowhere near as hard as it was before but it is the only Firefight Matchmaking challenge today, ("Climb Point Mountain cannot be done in Matchmaking.). Elites are the hardest enemies to kill in Firefight Matchmaking. This challenge will, however, most likely take two games to complete since I am urging you to play in the Score Attack playlist. In the Score Attack playlist, you will want to aim for the 2X Score Attack gametype. The final wave of every game will have about twenty Elites for you to kill. This means that you will need to play at least two games to finish off this challenge. You can also play in the standard Firefight playlist, but it will take longer due to having to compete for the Elite kills.

Climb Points Mountain - Score 2,000,000 points on any Firefight map. - 3000cR
So, clearly, this challenge will not be completed in Firefight Matchmaking as you could never possibly amass that many points in a single game online. What you will need to do is create a custom Firefight game, with specific settings. I would direct you to file shares online, but that is no longer an option until 343 Industries get their summer update pushed out to Waypoint. Regardless, set up a game where you have unlimited ammunition, unlimited Armor Abilities, are invulnerable, do not have to reload, all enemies are Elites Generals, and the bonus round enemies are Heretic Elites. Set the game to be unlimited sets and just play until you hit two million points. If you already have gametypes like this that were used for the original Reach Achievement, "Heat In The Pipe," you can use it for this challenge as well.

Throwing Fireballs - Kill 7 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2400cR
Seven grenade kills in a single game will actually be quite the challenge. You can use Fragmentation (Frag) Grenades or Plasma (Sticky) Grenades to score these kills. Gametype is important and Multi Team has always done the best for me since you have nine targets and all of them are also trying to kill another nine targets. Go for small maps like Countdown (Swordbase is a little too big) and head to the middle. Just toss your grenades as people are attacking each other and you should be all set. Expect this to take multiple games to complete as this challenge is rather difficult.
