Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/4/13

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
All the other challenges today are in all the main modes of Reach: Firefight Matchmaking, Campaign, and multiplayer Matchmaking. This challenge, asking for a hundred and twenty kills, is only taking kills from Firefight matchmaking. Now, the "Bulletproof" challenge could very well have you gaining enough kills to complete this challenge, but most likely not. Since you will be playing conservatively the first two rounds in order to stay alive, the expected number of kills, around a hundred and twenty, will decrease. After you finish that challenge, play a quick game in the Score Attack playlist to finish this challenge off.

Bulletproof - Complete 2 Rounds in a Firefight Matchmaking game without dying. - 2200cR
This will be the most irritating challenge of the day but your best bet for this one is in the four-player Firefight Playlist. A map like Beachhead or Glacier is likely the best for this challenge as you can utilize the jet-pack to hide up on the higher parts of the map. Now, for gametype, I would go for Sniper Fight or Arcadefight. Both of these gametypes grant you access to good power weapons that are effective at range. Utilize the other players and do not venture away from them. Being alone means that you will eventually be outnumbered. Strength in numbers is what you need for this challenge. Remember that you only need to survive two rounds for this one, but dying in the first round will render the game null and void for this challenge.

A Side of Huevos - Kill 60 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal. - 2500cR
Sniper Rifle headshots on Nightfall are actually not as easy to come by as you might think, especially due to how much the targets move. Load up on Heroic so Jun doesn't steal too many kills and get to the first section with a ton of enemies. Replay this section to score as many kills as you can. You can also play further along, as there is some more Sniper Rifle ammunition, but there is not really enough to make it worth your time and the targets are harder to hit. Probably will take about two tries to reach sixty kills, but three if you get a lot of body shots.

Five-time Champ - Win 5 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 4343cR
Well, time to win some games, right? That is what this challenge is all about. Now, you need five wins today, which may very well take up to ten games to complete. The trick to scoring wins in Reach is to give yourself the right set up. First off, don't play games that have more than two teams (or FFAs). More teams automatically lowers you chances of winning. Stick with gametypes you enjoy and are comfortable with as you will likely play better in them. Finally, play with teammate you know and normally win with since you are more likely to win that way.
