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!

HELPING HAND

Multiplayer

Assists

Type: Assists
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Grind
Time: 25-30 minutes
Value: ★★☆
Reward: 1000

Earn 10 assists today in Multiplayer Matchmaking.

Our standard spiel: 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 10 times.

Despite that, Bungie intends to pay you today to help out other players who haven’t really earned it when they cash in on your setup. Click on the Assist-O-Rama permanent link at the top of the page for our in-depth guide to Not Closing The Deal.

LIGHT FUSE, RUN AWAY

Multiplayer

Single Match

Special Weapon

Type: Kills / Special Weapon
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 5-10 minutes
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1000

Kill 4 enemies with grenades in a Multiplayer Matchmaking game.

Okay, this one’s pretty straightforward.

  1. Get a monkey.
  2. Go into Matchmaking.
  3. Give the controller to the monkey.
  4. Go get a sandwich.

If you’re having trouble finding a monkey, you can actually do this yourself, though it may take longer. Load up Rumble Pit or Multi-Team and look for close-quarter maps that specialize in clusterfuck explosions, as well as gametypes like Oddball or King Of The Hill that encourage players to run into the middle of the body-part fiesta.

Also vote for game variants with Plasma Grenade loadouts, since they’ll score more direct kills with a successful stick — Pro-style games remain your best bet, since the Warden option includes Covie grenades and the matchtype doesn’t offer Armor Lock. Any Elite game can also work if you’re smart about it: save your stickies for enemies wielding Plasma or Needle Rifles, since the basic Needler remains a tipoff that the player may have loaded up Armor Lock.

And, oh yeah–don’t forget: Return the monkey. You don’t want to find out what those guys use for grenades.

HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE

Multiplayer

Win

Type: Wins
Setting: Multiplayer
Difficulty: Easy
Time: 45-60 minutes (Concurrent with other Challenges)
Value: ★★★★★
Reward: 1600

Win 4 games in Multiplayer Matchmaking.

Not much to say; play enough and you’ll rack up four wins. Grifball is your go-to game here: Not only will you be able to work other Challenges at the same time, but the matches are short, and all things being equal you’ll go in with a 50-50 chance of pulling host and scoring the win.
