Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/20/13

The Challenges:

Light Fare - Kill 100 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 3000cR
Well, since it is a Firefight Matchmaking Thursday (we expect these every week now, right?) and this is a relatively low amount of kills, you should not be overly surprised that you will not need to do any extra work to complete this challenge. Basically, you need a hundred kills today to finish this off and it can be in any game mode of Reach. Well, the "Going Outpost-al" challenge will be netting you about two-hundred and something kills while the "Heroic Holdout" will add another two hundred or so. You might even see the "Above the Law" challenge throw in another hundred or so. Regardless, not extra work is needed for this challenge. Just get to it.

Going Outpost-al - Kill 125 enemies on Outpost on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 1100cR
Outpost isn't my favorite map for, especially for Score Attack, but it is doable in this instance and Score Attack is your best bet for this challenge. You will get about a hundred and twenty or so kills per game which means you will likely end up just short for this challenge. Stick to the building in the level as going outside will lend you no cover at all. Go for Gruntpocalypse or 2X Score Attack and plan on playing a second game just to finish off this challenge, unfortunately. Make it the Crashsite gametype if you can.

Heroic Holdout - Kill 150 enemies on Holdout on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2125cR
Now, the only reason I sort of like Holdout now is because of those static Banshee spawns which always help me out with the "Flat Tire" every so often. How do I feel about it when I do not need those vehicle kills? Meh. It is decent enough, I guess, but not one of the best maps I have seen. Now, your best option for this will actually be the Score Attack playlist. You will, just as above, need to play two games of Score Attack to get all these kills. You should get about a hundred and twenty on average so this is pretty much taken care of. Go for 2X Score Attack to help with the "Above the Law" challenge.

Above the Law - Complete a Round in Firefight Matchmaking without dying. - 2000cR
A whole round without dying is not as hard as it seems though there are more stipulations to this challenge than it would seem. First off, a round is comprised of five waves and three rounds make up a set. All games in Score Attack are a single round and all games in the Firefight playlist are a single set. Now, this needs to be done in the first round of a game if you are in the Firefight playlist. Dying once will make all subsequent rounds not count, which is a really stupid issue that should have been fixed a while ago. This should be much easiest to complete in the Firefight playlist as you will have three teammates with you and you can spend more time hiding if needed. This can also definitely be completed in Score Attack, but you will be on your own in that playlist.
