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.

Halo Reach Daily is dedicated to my Dad, who taught me what it means to take on a Challenge.

SCREENSHOT OF THE DAY

Screenshot Of The Day today courtesy of Wayne O’Leary, who sent this as a Welcome Back message for Halo Reach Daily. Thanks, Wayne, we’re glad to be back too! Everyone, click to enlarge!

Meanwhile, if you haven’t done it already, yo: Send your screenshots to haloreachdaily@live.com, or just make a file recommendation to us on XBox (Gamertag: Ender Xer0, with a zero), and we’ll take care of the rest. Remember: we’re not looking for Forge art or random pix from the Internet; it should be a screenshot of YOU!


DAILY CHALLENGES


Summary

TYPES: Completion, Kills, Special Enemy
SETTINGS: Campaign, Firefight, Multiplayer
AVERAGE DIFFICULTY: Easy / Grind
TOTAL TIME: 30-45 minutes
OVERALL VALUE: ★★★★
TOTAL CREDITS: 4525


ONE SPARTAN ARMY

Firefight

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 20-30 minutes (Concurrent withDemon Challenge)
Value: ★★★★
Reward: 1125

Kill 150 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking.

Take this one on last; the Demon challenge will net you at least 40 Elite kills, and you’ll have more than enough leftovers to either finish this off or come pretty damn close. Head into a one-Round Score Attack — Gruntpocalypse is probably easiest — to tie up any loose ends.

DEMON

Firefight

Special Enemy

Kills

Type: Kills / Special Enemy
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 20-30 minutes (Concurrent with One Spartan Army Challenges)
Value: ★★★★
Reward: 1400

Kill 40 Elites in Firefight Matchmaking on Heroic or harder.

Firefight Arcade has rendered the Demon Challenges vastly easier, since games now feature entire Waves of Elites and three Rounds worth of them as well. Still, it won’t be that easy to string up 40 mandibles in a single match — particularly with other players hunting for Dino meat as well — so be prepared for their arrival.

The Heretics actually present more of a threat than the Boss-Wave Elites, since they’re way more in number and rock instant-kill weapons like aimbot-controlled Sniper Rifles; a helluva lot more dangerous than some solo Gold Elite with Overshields and a Sword.

Look for Arcade playlists with concussive weapons — Grenade Launchers, FRGs, and of course Concussion Rifles — to bounce them around the map, since that’ll actually throw off their aim and extend your lifespan amid the headshot crossfire. Drop Shield will also buy you some extra time, but use it where you’ve got other cover as well, since it won’t last long under sustained unlimited Sniper and Rocket fire.

MYTHIC BUSTIN’

Campaign

Heroic

Skull On

Type: Completion
Setting: Campaign
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5-10 minutes
Value: ★★★★
Reward: 1000

Complete a Campaign mission on Heroic or harder with the Mythic Skull on.

So, Bungie is just about daring you to power through this using the Midnight Run. If you’re a regular reader of this site, you know what to do; if not, just click on the standing link at the top of the page for a complete description, including a video walkthrough.

BETTER, CLOSER, WARMER

Multiplayer

Single Match

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5 minutes
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1000

Earn at least 7 kills in a Multiplayer Matchmaking game.

So, there’s this button on the right side of your XBox controller that’s shaped like a trigger, and if you–oh, wait, you’ve got the Challenge? OK, cool.


WEEKLY CHALLENGE


DEDICATION/TIME

General

Type: Meta
Setting: All
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 4 Challenges/Day
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 18000

Complete 24 Daily Challenges this week.

NEW WEEKLY CHALLENGE!

HOLY CRAP, that’s just about the biggest Challenge bonus in the all-time history of Challenge bonuses. Yow!

Not much to say, other than if you started yesterday, you can finish on Saturday; meaning you can technically miss an entire day, but then you’ll have to complete every single other Daily Challenge or you’ll mathematically eliminate yourself. So, better to nail them all during the week to give yourself some breathing room on the weekend.

And, if you think this is too much crazy for a videogame to ask: Just remember that the Daily Challenges average out to about 6,000 cR per day. This Weekly actually means that, in addition to all the cRedits you’ll earn just from actually tackling the Challenges, you’ll have cashed out an extra 54,000 cR in Daily and Weekly bonuses — but only if you finish.

So, crazy? Sure. But 54K will make a man do crazy, yeah?
