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 plain Forge art or random pix from the Internet; it should be a screenshot of YOU!

GOING OUTPOST-AL

Firefight

Kills

Type: Kills
Setting: Firefight
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 10-20 minutes (Concurrent with Covenant-cide Challenge)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1100

Kill 125 enemies on Outpost on Heroic in Firefight Matchmaking.

Load up any power-weapon Firefight Arcade game and you should be able to blast your way to this Challenge in a single match. Our fave position on Outpost is atop the main deck, but we’ve seen people do just as well roaming the battlefield. And, even if you fall short of the mark, it’s a simple matter to just fire up another game, or wrap things up in Score Attack.

ROAST ‘EM, TOAST ‘EM

Campaign

Jetpacking

Kills

Type: Killstyle
Setting: Campaign
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 10-15 minutes
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1500

Kill 35 enemies while jet-packing in Exodus on Normal.

Your quickest, easiest Challenge of the day. Open up Rally Point Alpha on Exodus, then head outside to one of the Marines by the ammo case and swap your devastating Magnum of Doom for a Rocket Launcher of Even More Doom.

Strap on a Jetpack at the far end of the walkway and Rocketeer your way to the platform with the bad guys. Glide up over them — they’re neatly clustered in a pack, for your raining-death-from-above pleasure — and fire away.

Keep in mind that the Challenge counts Firebird Medals, which require your jetpack to actually thrust at the moment of the kill; if you’re in freefall, the kill won’t count, even if you’re still airborne. And, of course, if you get yourself killed or run out of rockets, simply reload from the last Checkpoint, rinse and repeat; the Challenge counter keeps running.

PARTICIPATION COUNTS

Multiplayer

Type: Completion
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Retarded
Time: 20-30 minutes
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1200

Complete 4 games in Multiplayer Matchmaking.

Yes, you really can earn this by doing absolutely nothing for four games; it’s hard to call it a “Challenge” when the only requirement is that your controller doesn’t turn off. (And even then.) But, hey, it’s 1200 free cRedits — so don’t complain, eh?
