Halo 4 War Games and Spartan Ops Daily Challenges - 5/3/13

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

The Challenges:

Drilled - Get 15 kills with a Precision Loadout Weapon in a single match. - 1000 XP
And then the XP values go down. *Sigh* Do they have a quota of XP to hand out each week and they don't dare go over it? Makes no sense. Precision Loadout weapons in Halo 4 include the DMR (Designated Marksman Rifle), the BR (Battle Rifle), the Covenant Carbine, and the Light Rifle. These are all the precision weapons that you can add to a customized loadout. Sniper, Binary Cannon, and Covenant Beam Rifle do not fall into this category. Now, some playlists, like SWAT, have you exclusively using these weapons and these are your best bets for completing these challenges. As all these games require sixty kills now, but your average number of kills should jump up a little putting fifteen just in range of a regular game. As well, objective gametypes are good for this challenge as there is no kill limit and you can exclusively use a precision weapons in your loadouts. This does need to be completed in a single game so expect this to take two or three games to accomplish.

Quick On The Trigger - Earn 4 Combat Skill Medals in a single match. - 1000 XP
Combat skill medals, for those who do not already know of them, include the Killjoy, Headcase, From the Grave, Reload This, and Showstopper Medals. Granted, a lot of these are based off of luck, a few can be farmed, namely the Reload This and Headcase medals, which you will be best off trying for with a Precision Weapons (i.e. DMR, BR, Light Rifle, Covenant Carbine). Now, you need to score four in a single match but this is not really a difficult challenge if you are in a long match with a lot of players. Dominion would be my preferred gametype, though you can also have great success with Capture the Flag as those games typically go the entire time. Work on "Drilled" first as you may get this done while working on it.

Destroyer of Grunts - Kill 50 Grunts. - 1000 XP
So, perhaps this is now a Daily challenge due to the whole Spartan Ops Double XP for the weekend and they are really trying to get people to play it? Anyway, let's look at the indicated Grunt kills. Like the Jackal and the Elite, you can find some to kill in every single Chapter of Spartan Ops, generally. Unlike Reach, with its Ultra Grunts, all Grunts in Halo 4 can be killed with a single headshots. Utilize the DMR and the Covenant Carbine for this. As per which episode you should play in, Episode Five, Chapter Four "The Cauldron Base" hosts an amazing sum of eighty-six Grunts which, played through once, will complete this challenge. Even if you have a second player with you, just run through that one two times on whatever difficulty you like and that challenge should be taken care of for both of you.
