Check in here for strategies on completing the Daily and Weekly challenges in Halo: Reach. If it’s your first time, click through the About HRD link above; and add comments below if you’ve got a good idea of your own for tackling the Challenges today.





Type: Assists
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Grind
Reward: 2000

Earn 30 assists today in Multiplayer Matchmaking.

Tip Of The Day

Working toward Assists can always be a hassle, since your natural instincts and gaming skills focus on putting down your enemies, not passing the kill off to another player. Nobody makes the highlight reel by almost scoring 15 times. Despite that, Bungie intends to pay you today to help out other players who haven’t really earned it. More good news is that you’ll be able to work the Fire When Ready Challenge at the same time, to make it even more worth your time. Click on the Assist-O-Rama standing link at the top of the page for our in-depth guide to Not Closing The Deal.




Type: Kills
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Easy
Reward: 300

Kill 30 enemies in multiplayer Matchmaking.
Chances are, you’ll get the 300 bonus cR without even noticing you did it. Chances are that you’ll simply get this as part of going for the A Great Friend Challenge. Chances are your chances are very good that you won’t need any help from me. I mean, you could probably make this an Hourly Challenge and still end up with 30 kills every time the little hand moves, yeah?


Special Weapon


Type: Special Weapon
Setting: Campaign
Difficulty: Easy
Reward: 500

Kill 50 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today.

Another of one of the easiest Challenges you’ll encounter all week. Load up Winter Contingency at Rally Point Bravo and get to work. You’ll spawn with an Assault Rifle, but a DMR is conveniently awaiting your weapon swap on the asphalt courtyard leading to the rear bunker. Inside the bunker you’ll find more DMR ammo as well.

Concentrate on headshots against the Grunts and Jackals, since those will award extra Medal cR, and don’t waste your ammo or time on the Elites, since you’ll run out of enemies before hitting the 50 mark and need to restart the checkpoint anyway; might as well do it as soon as you’ve cleaned slate on the lesser Covies.

If you run low on ammo, simply swipe a Needle Rifle from one of the Jackal bodies; it’ll register precision kills as easily as the DMR, but heading back into the bunker for a DMR reload can trigger a checkpoint for the doors to close, meaning you’d have to settle for another restart.



Special Weapon


Type: Kills / Special Weapon
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Easy
Reward: 1500

Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with the pistol.

A Challenge tailor-made for Gruntpocalypse if ever there was one. Simply head into Score Attack and veto your map options until you’re offered Corvette. Once the Gruntpocalypse begins, select Drop Shield for your Armor Ability, then slide past the weapons crate to stock up on rounds. Head up to one of the side platforms, switch to your Magnum and let the target practice begin.

As always, go for headshots, since the Firefight medal earns you additional cR. You should be able to rack up all 100 kills within one Round, but it won’t matter if you don’t — simply head back into a Gruntpocalypse to clean up what’s left.

And: Special props to Bungie for the Tombstone movie reference in the Challenge title. If you haven’t seen it yet, your Netflix queue is calling to you.
