Halo 4 War Games Daily and Weekly Challenges - 3/18/13

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

The Challenges:
Spartan Takedown - Kill 15 Players. - 3000 XP
These are easy credits, easy credits, easy credits. At least this is better than the challenge below which we had yesterday, but I will talk about that down there. You only need to get fifteen kills today in War Games, overall for this challenge. Not in a single game of in a specific mode, just over all. For most people, this is probably a single game's worth of kills depending on the playlist. You will likely have to play a few games for the "In Your Face" challenge and that will pretty much fully take care of this challenge. Even if you are not going for that challenge, just play a standard slayer game or jump into the Grifball playlist. In the end, this challenge should take no work to complete at all.

In Your Face - Earn 25 CQC Medals. - 5000 XP
There are three Close Quarters Combat medals in Halo 4 and they are the Melee, Beat Down, and Bulltrue medals. Remember that, for the Beat Down medal, when behind an enemy, just tap melee instead of holding it to perform a Beat Down. To get these, you will typically want to be on a smaller map in an objective oriented game as it will allow you to get as many medals as possible. Oddball is typically good for close quarters combat on the smaller maps, especially if you have the ball or can use the ball-carrier to draw people in close range. As well, standard slayer games will work well too, just not as many medals per game. I would expect to get about six or seven of these per game when actually trying, though you will not see the Bull True that often.

The Weekly Challenges:
Deadeye - Kill 100 Players with a headshot. - 10000 XP
So, headshots can be scored with precision weapons, being the DMR, the BR, the Sniper Rifle, the Covenant Carbine, the Beam Rifle, the Light Rifle, or the Binary Cannon as well as the Magnum Pistol, and will come pretty commonly in matchmaking. Almost everyone is using precision weapons in their loadout so even if you are out of ammo you can likely pick one up. As well, Team Snipers is being thrust into the playlist hopper today and should also let you rack up the headshots. Now, depending on the weapons, and the playlist, you will need to take down the shields of your enemies to score headshots. Grenades and melees are very effective at this but a plasma pistol burst is best. A hundred headshots should take seven to ten games and probably can be done within a day or two.

One, Two, Three, Four... - Earn 40 Multikill medals. - 20000 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. Grifball is back so that is definitely an option for this challenge because it is practically a multikills generator, though somewhat less do to everyone always having sprint. Now, forty multikills will likely only take a few games to complete, probably four at most. Get this done first as these are some very easy credits.
