Halo 4 Campaign Weekly Challenges - 11/6/12

Please subscribe above this and/or follow me on twitter! Have any ideas or comments about the challenges? Post them down below! 

The Challenges:
The Coming of Dawn - Complete Dawn solo on Legendary difficulty. - 4750 XP

This is the first level of Halo 4 and, most likely, the easiest as it will attempt to re-introduce the player into Halo and showcase any changes made from Reach. In other words, it is our Winter Contingency for Halo 4. You can die as much as you want for this challenge as there is now "without dying" stipulation. This level does allow you to fall back and keep your distance so utilize the Magnum and BR during the Observations deck sequence and the exterior sequence. Does not take too long to complete so this is really easy credits.
Thunderstruck - Complete any Campaign Mission on Heroic or higher difficulty with the Thunderstorm skull. - 2000
XP The Thunderstorm Skull is the same as it was in Reach and it simply upgrades all of the enemies that you encounter. Since you only have to do this one on Heroic, do yourself a favor and go for that. In terms of what level, until we find out if we can run through any of the levels in a matter of minutes, you are best off running through the level Dawn as it has been the easiest on to complete so far with very few enemies. If you are feeling adventurous, flip this skull on while working on "The Coming of Dawn." Might as well start trying out some of the skulls now to get ready for LASO when it starts.

  1. The one thing that I miss about Reach when playing Halo 4 tonight was the simplicity of the menus and the organization of them as well.

  2. Nice to see that you are posting commentary on the Halo 4 challenges - this is much appreciated.

    I agree that the simplicity of the Reach menus will be missed :(

  3. As will the lack of firefight mode :(

    Means you only really have daily MP challenges which are useless if you have a laggy connection.

  4. These menus definitely take some getting used to, but I am assuming that they will simplify and streamline it for Halo 5.

  5. Well, I think the Spartan Ops takes the place of firefight, although I do miss that dedicated playlist.
