Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/21/13

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

The Challenges:

Blastin' and Relaxin' - Kill 180 enemies in any game mode in Reach. - 2343cR
In all likelihood, you will not be able to hit a hundred and eighty kills today just following these challenges. "Pass the Rock" will get you very few kills, maybe thirty or so, the "Freelancing" challenge will likely get you another thirty or so, and the "Participation Counts" challenge may only add an extra thirty to forty kills. That puts you at, maybe, a hundred kills. For the other eighty kills, I would just recommend going into the Firefight playlist. You can get a hundred and twenty kills in a single game so it should work out quite well. Head for the Score Attack playlist to make it easier.

Pass the Rock - Earn 20 assists today in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 1500cR
Well, it has been a long damn time since we have seen this challenge, about seven months to be exact. Either way, an assist is earned in multiplayer Matchmaking when you deal forty percent health damage to an enemy who is then killed by someone else before that health has been restored. Typically, you will see this as someone stealing your kill, but you get a nice little medal for it. Now, your best bet is to specifically try for these assists and not going for kills. Of course, you will end up with kills anyway, so do not worry about that. Now, Multi Team is the best playlist for this challenge because you have a ton of enemies (nine, to be exact) and a bunch of players who can score you an assist (nine again). Aim for the smaller maps and stick to the center so if you damage a play enough, he/she is in a prime spot to get you an assist. Expect this to take two to three games to complete. And if you do not get the reference to the name, it is about passing a Kidney Stone.

Freelancing - Earn at least 20 kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 3500cR
So, the last time we had this challenge it was for twenty-one kills and only gave you twenty-one hundred credits. Still makes very little sense to me. Anyway, it can be done so easily without even having to really try. The gametype is Grifball and it will allow you to get thirty or so kills in a single game without any concerted effort. Now, some of you are likely opposed to Grifball so might I instead suggest Multi Team (with an objective based gametype) or Invasion. The other challenges will have you in the Multi Team playlist. You can possibly get this done while going for assists, but it will be pretty damn challenging.

Participation Counts - Complete 4 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2400cR
This is, technically, the easiest challenge of the day. You will need to playthrough four games from start to finish. If you get booted, disconnected, or quit from any game, it will not count towards this challenge so you must play from start to finish. Four is not a whole lot but you do have two other multiplayer Matchmaking challenges today. "Freelancing" may only have you playing two or so games but "Pass the Rock" will probably be about two to three games. If you get done early with the other challenges, play whatever you like to finish this challenge off. Grifball is preferred to get some of those kills taken care of.
