Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/2/13

The Challenges:

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2250cR
So, you have three other challenges today but only one of them is relevant for this challenge. You need to score a hundred and fifty kills in Firefight Matchmaking. The "J.H. Death Machine" challenge is tasking you with scoring seventy kills with the Grenade Launcher in Firefight Matchmaking. This will likely take two games to complete. Since you will get about a hundred or so kills in a single Firefight Matchmaking game, then this challenge is pretty much in the bag. If you get "J.H. Death Machine" done in a single game, then play whatever you want to finish off this challenge.

Roast 'em, Toast 'em - Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal. - 3000cR
There are far too many jet-pack related challenges today. Well, to be honest, one is too many but I guess that would be unreasonable. So, you can just load up Exodus at Rally Point Alpha and this will start you right before you get the jet pack. First of all, you will need to be actively using the jet-pack armor ability when the kill occurs. You cannot be falling and you cannot be out of the armor ability. Grenades are actually great for this as you can throw them into a crowd of Covies and then hit the armor ability to have all those kills register as kills while jet-packing. It really is that easy.

J.H. Death Machine - Kill 70 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the Grenade Launcher. - 2250cR
This is the one challenge that, so to speak, throws a wrench into the plans and will cause some trouble (i.e. take more time) for you. The Grenade Launcher is an okay weapon, but it is not seen much in the Score Attack playlist. Now, if you can get the gametype Grenade Attack in the Score Attack playlist then you can get this done with little effort but, most likely, you will need to venture into the Firefight playlist once that challenge is completed and aim for Arcadefight. One of the loadouts in that gametype is the Grenade Launcher and you should be able to get it done relatively easily. There is a possibility it will take two games, however, so be warned.

Cook 'em, Clean 'em - Kill 10 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking while you're jet-packing. - 1200cR
So, to score a kill while jet-packing, which earns you a specific medal called "Firebird", you need to be actively jet-packing when the kills is scored. Not just in the air and not falling, but actively using the jet-pack. For grenades, using the jet-pack when the opponent is hit, not when the grenade was thrown. Now, regular Team Slayer or Multi Team is likely your best option for this challenge since those playlists tend to have gametypes that allow jet-packs in the loadout selection. This will probably take a game or two to complete. Complete this challenge first, as it is the most annoying.
