Updated: Halo 4 War Games Daily and Weekly Challenges - 1/28/13

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

The Challenges:
In the Back - Assassinate 3 Players. - 1400 XP
Assassinations are not too hard to come by and, typically, for these challenges you need a bunch. This time, however, you just need three assassinations overall. Now, to score an assassination, you need to go behind an enemy and hold down the melee button. An animation will then trigger that needs to mostly complete for the assassination to count. Now, Regicide is a probably the best spot to score assassination in any sort of Slayer game since Team Slayer Pro was taken away. Generally, however, you will want to stick to objective games since you can then hide and ambush people. Expect this to take two to three games to complete.

Up Close and Personal - Earn 5 CQC Medals in a single match. - 2550 XP
So, if you are unaware, this week's new playlist as part of the Weekly rotations is Grifball. Yes, are favorite. We need to play this as much as we can every week to ensure that it stays in matchmaking as it will make a bunch of challenges a lot easier. I was actually hoping that it would make a challenge like this somewhat easier, but it did not. However, if you get control of the ball, you can easily score some Bulltrue and Melee medals. I was able to earn six CQC medals in a single game (as well as a bunch of kills and multikills) and get this challenge done in no time flat. As you might think, Grifball in Halo 4 will require some transition from Reach, but not much. Timing is about the same, so have fun.

The Weekly Challenges:
To Be Precise - Get 150 kills with a Precision Loadout Weapon. - 20000 XP
So, unless I am mistaken, these XP rewards are much higher than we are used to for weekly challenges. This means that you should try to get these done as soon as possible before they change them. Now, when it mentions "Precision Loadout Weapons" it means weapons that you can select as you custom load out weapons. Therefore, the Binary Rifle, Beam Rifle, and the Sniper Rifle will not count for this challenge at all. What you can score kills with are the DMR, BR, Light Rifle, and the Covenant Carbine. You can get the BR and DMR pretty quickly, even if you are low level so stick to those weapons. Playlists like SWAT and Team Slayer Pro will also give you easy access to these weapons. A hundred and fifty kills will not take too long and this can easily be done in a day or two if you stay in playlists like SWAT or Dominion. Team Slayer Pro would have been good if it was left in as well.

Deft Hand - Earn 40 Combat Skill Medals. - 10000 XP
Combat Skill medals include the Killjoy, Headcase, From the Grave, Reload This, and Showstopper medals. You need forty of these overall this week and so you will need to hit about seven a day. Use precision weapons (DMR, BR, Light Rifle, Sniper) to score Headcase (headshot on a running target) medals and then use grenades when you are near death for the From the Grave medal. Reload This is pretty much dependent on the other player but people need to reload their weapons. Killyjoys and Showstopper are a bit more rare and harder to get so do not focus on them. You will likely not need to go out of your way for this challenge, just do the Daily challenges and these will handle themselves.
