Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/22/13

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

The Challenges:

Covenant-cide - Kill 120 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 3200cR
Here, you have all these challenges today but none of them are in Firefight Matchmaking. This challenge is however. It sucks, to an extent, but should not cause too many problems. Now, a hundred and twenty kills is about what you would get in a standard game in the Score Attack playlist. The gametype is entirely up to you, however. Gruntpocalypse and 2X Score Attack are the typical preferred methods and either one should do. You might end up a kill or two short so be ready to play a second game if necessary.

Sticky Icky Icky - Earn 3 sticky grenade Kills in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 2250cR
Sticky grenades (aka Plasma Grenades) are one of the more interesting weapons in the Halo sandbox and we have had them since Halo CE. You need to get three sticky kills with these in a single game. That means that you stick someone and then the grenade explodes and kills them. It does not count if people near the player die from the explosion, it only counts the player you stuck. The best playlist for this challenge is Multi Team since you can get the Elite Slayer gametype where you always spawn with a single Plasma Grenade. In Multi Team you have a bunch of targets so I would try specifically for those. Now, Slayer Pro in the MLG playlist is also an option, but you do not have as many targets. Remember, you need three in a single game.

Double Double - Earn 2 Double Kills in the same match in Multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2000cR
Now, a Double Kill is when you score two kills within four seconds of each other and this is the most common type of multi kill. You will need to space these out so you do not stack to high multi kills, which will not count for this challenge. Your best bet for getting these Double Kills is, without a doubt, Grifball as it allows you to score tons and tons of kill and multi kills. However, you will definitely have the chance to get Double Kills if you are working with explosive ordnance in a playlist like Invasion or such, so to try to get some there as well. Grifball is still your best bet though.

Iron Will - Complete a Campaign mission alone on Heroic or harder with the Iron Skull on. - 2500cR
So this challenge will require you to run through a mission in the campaign solo with the Iron Skull on, which will make the mission start over from the start anytime you die. This can be very irritating on the harder levels and you are best off simply speed-running through the level Nightfall, which can be done in about seven to ten minutes. A guide to running through the level can be found right here. If speed-running Nightfall is not your cup of tea then playing through Winter Contingency is your best and fastest bet as it is the easiest mission besides Nightfall.
