Halo 4 War Games Daily Challenges - 1/9/13

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

The Challenges:
Exterminate! Exterminate! - Kill every member of the opposing team at least once in a match. - 2750 XP
You can somewhat treat this like an actually Extermination from Reach, but just spread out over an entire game. As well, there is a commendation that tracks this. Now, you do need to kill every member of the opposing team, just not at all once. This probably happens more often than not without you even noticing it. You will want to stick to gametypes with a low number of players per team. This means Team Slayer Pro, Infinity Slayer, or SWAT. Each one of those gametypes has teams of four players maximum. I'm not entirely sure how people joining and leaving the game effect this stat, but most likely you will need to have killed every player who is on the team once the game ends. Should take a game or two to complete.

Baller - Win 3 matchmaking Oddball matches. - 1500 XP
Only three wins in Oddball are needed today, as opposed to the customary nine which we have been seeing. Oddball is, at least, a quicker gametypes as it is played on a smaller map and it is easier to hold onto the ball as it can be passed (using the throw grenade button). Again, you will need a coordinated team when stepping into this playlist as they need to know how to guard the ball carrier but also, most of all, where to guard the ball carrier. The ball carrier always needs an exit so the other team does not easily retrieve the ball. Since you should be used to getting nine wins now, three wins should be a breeze but be prepared to play more than three games unless you go on a three win streak immediately.

  1. For Exterminate! Exterminate!, I believe that you must start a game and play it through. You cannot join-in-progress to obtain this. Also, I think that you need to kill all players on the other team that play the entire game. So, if they have someone drop out, then hopefully you killed them already and then you kill their replacement.

    1. That may be true, on the first point, about having to play the entire game, but I do not know about the second claim.
