Halo 4 War Games Daily and Weekly Challenges - 1/14/13

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

The Challenges:
Threading the Needle - Kill 11 Players with a headshot in a single match. - 2350 XP
To score headshots in Halo 4, you need a headshot capable weapon. This means a DMR, BR, Magnum Pistol, Light Rifle, Covenant Carbine, Sniper Rifle, Covenant Beam Rifle, or a Binary Cannon. The BR, DMR, Light Rifle, and Covenant Carbine are all loadout weapons so if you play in playlist that are objective-based or have high kill limits, you should have no problem completing this challenge. If you are having trouble reaching eleven headshots in a single game, head to the SWAT playlist. SWAT will allow you to immediately score headshots and will also allow you easy access to the DMR and BR. Try to work on "The Pistolero" challenge while you are in there.

One, Two, Three, Four... - Earn 9 Multikill medals. - 1500 XP
A multikills in Halo 4 is earned when you score multiple kills each within four and a half seconds of each other. These are decidedly less common in Halo 4 than they were in Reach so you really need to set up the right gametype and such to score them. Now, having access to large number of enemies and heavy weapons is a great way to score multikills. Dominion has always fared well for me on a map like Vortex. Standard Infinity Slayer will likely make progress on this for you as well. It is all up to personal preference and wherever you have had success in the past. I am encouraging you to play SWAT for the "Threading the Needle" challenge but that might not be the best for this one so try other playlists if you are not having success.

The Weekly Challenges:
The Pistolero - Get 15 kills with a Secondary Weapon in a single match. - 6100 XP
Another challenging one for the Weekly Challenges, especially since Halo 4 War Games are a bit more long range than other games in the series. Now, secondary weapons in Halo 4 include the Magnum Pistol, the Plasma Pistol, and the Boltshot. The Magnum Pistol is pretty much your best bet since it gives you the best range, accuracy, and versatility. The best playlist to get this kills in will likely be SWAT. Though there is no SWAT Magnums gametype present in the playlist yet, all the enemies will have no shields therefore making a headshot an instakill. Try for a smaller map like Adrift or Haven as all the other maps are way too large.

Raise the Flag - Win 45 matchmaking Capture the Flag matches. - 4750 XP
Well, this is a dick move. No doubt, other days during this week they will ask you to win games in a certain gametype so, on top of that, you need to score these wins as well. In addition to this, Capture the Flag is normally the longest gametype because everyone picks fucking Ragnarok and no one even get to the fucking score limit and the game goes on forever. Yeah, this challenge sucks. Capture the Flag is a gametype where you need a communicative team to help you capture the flag, but also defend you own flag. One way to try and speed up the games is to pick smaller maps, but good luck getting everyone else to vote for it. Forty-five wins in a week means six to seven a day, but generally aim for seven. Good luck, you will need it.
