A change from the norm in that you need specific objectives, but still pretty easy to get

My partner is confused regarding the Counter ECM Locked Damage reward. I presume it's rewarded from lock-on weapons hitting an ECM ’Mech whose been disabled by your own ECM in Counter mode, but I may be incorrect. Is that how it works?

Correct. Locked on missiles (LRMs, ATMs or Streak) either fired by yourself OR somebody else on your team hitting a target that you are countering ECM for that you have a lock on. So Streaks are often the easiest option, allowing you to counter, lock and fire rather than relying on friendlies to lurm for you.

Locked on missiles (LRMs, ATMs or Streak) [...] fired by yourself
So I tried exactly this one match today and found that this very specifically doesn't seem to work. Far as I can tell, it must be fired by an ally, not the one looking to complete the challenge.

Fortunately, I have a reliable wingman to play with. Helped that same person and one other get it by being the wingman myself, too. lol

I hope they come up with new mech designs to introduce to the game. I like grinding through the monthly freebee designs, since I've not purchased any and usually gotten my collection of mechs through grind-giveaways etc with couple exceptions. 

I keep thinking they'll run out stuff sooner or later.

They'll offer variants, either existing or new.
