Halo 4 War Games Daily and Weekly Challenges - 4/29/13

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

The Challenges:

That's Just Perfect - Complete a War Games match with at least 15 kills without dying. - 5000 XP
They keep having this challenge but felt the need to get rid of the perfection medal. It makes absolutely no sense to me. Anyway, this will be a complete and utter pain to accomplish. On the bright side, this is unlike a perfection in Reach where you also needed to win the game. Now, you will likely want a large gametype, like Dominion, where you can hang back and just get kills. Small maps do not afford you enough room to hide once you hit the fifteen required kills. You will also need teammates that will give you a lot of opportunities to yank their kills and who will protect you once you need to hide. Unfortunately, this will take a bunch of games to complete so get ready for the long haul. Complete "Baller" first, however.

Baller - Win 5 matchmaking Oddball matches. - 2000 XP
It does seem that the XP rewards has increased in general this week, so it is a step in the right direction. Now we just need better challenges. Oddball is a moderately quick gametype if 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. This challenge will likely take more than five games so be ready for that. Due to the changes in playlists, you will need to head to the Team Objective playlist for this challenge.

The Weekly Challenges:
Spray and Pray - Get 250 kills with an Automatic Loadout Weapon. - 6000 XP
Automatic Loadout Weapons in Halo 4 include the AR (Automatic Rifle), the Storm Rifle, and the Suppressor. The Needler and the Chain Gun do not count for these challenges as you cannot equip them in loadouts. Whichever weapon you choose will depend on several things, the first of which being what weapons you have unlocked, the next being the type of combat you prefer. The Storm Rifle has the tightest spread but is the weakest while the Suppressor is the most powerful but is the most inaccurate. The AR sits in the middle being the best compromise to the other weapons with a decently concentrated spread and good power behind it. I would stick to objective gametypes as they will allow you to get in close quarters and score these kills. Two-hundred and fifty kills will only require that you hit about forty a day but hit more early so you can relax later in the week.

Deft Hand - Earn 50 Combat Skill Medals. - 7000 XP
Combat Skill medals include the Killjoy, Headcase, From the Grave, Reload This, and Showstopper medals. You need fifty of these overall this week and so you will need to hit about seven to eight 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.
