Halo Reach Daily Challenges Guide - 6/8/13

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

The Challenges:

One Spartan Army - Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking. - 2250cR
Through all the four challenges today, three of them are in multiplayer Matchmaking. The lone Firefight Matchmaking challenge today is this one. As well, it is also the generic "Kill X enemies in certain mode" challenge. This means that we will be getting absolutely no help today from the other challenges with this one. Now, a hundred and fifty kills will take two games to complete as you are likely to get only a hundred and twenty kills in a single game. The Score Attack playlist is your best bet with 2X Score Attack and Gruntpocalypse being the best choices as they are the quickest.

Throwing Fireballs - Kill 8 enemies with grenades in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1600cR
Eight grenade kills in a single game will actually be quite the challenge. You can use Fragmentation (Frag) Grenades or Plasma (Sticky) Grenades to score these kills. Gametype is important and Multi Team has always done the best for me since you have nine targets and all of them are also trying to kill another nine targets. Go for small maps like Countdown (Swordbase is a little too big) and head to the middle. Just toss your grenades as people are attacking each other and you should be all set. Expect this to take multiple games to complete as this challenge is rather difficult.

Explosive Ordnance Distribution - Earn 5 kills with ordnance weapons in a multiplayer Matchmaking game. - 1250cR
Explosive Ordnance Weapons in Reach include the Rocket Launcher, Grenade Launcher, the Concussion Rifle, and the Plasma Launcher. These weapons are not easy to find anymore since the Action Sack playlist was taken down. Now, your best chance is the third phase of the Invasion gametype in which you will have access to either the Concussion Rifle or the Grenade Launcher. You will have two chances at this if the game is pretty even and you only need five kills in a single game. I would expect this challenge to take multiple tries and you might want to attempt Invasion Slayer as well since you can pick a loadout with an explosive ordnance weapon in the last wave/section.

Home Field Advantage - Win 7 games in multiplayer Matchmaking. - 2050cR
Seven wins can definitely be challenging to some but this challenge needs little explanation. There are two other multiplayer Matchmaking challenges today but neither will likely help you score wins. "Explosive Ordnance Distribution" may get a few but "Throwing Fireballs" will likely not get you any. To help you score wins, stick to gametypes with no more than two teams, in a playlist you are good at, and with people you know on your team. This can take up to fourteen games to complete so be ready for the long haul. Grifball is one of the faster gametypes, along with Team SWAT. This really depends upon your personal preference here but make sure you start on this early.
