Halo 4 War Games Daily and Weekly Challenges - 5/13/13

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

The Challenges:

Got Backup - Get 25 kills with a Secondary Weapon. - 500 XP
Secondary weapons in Halo 4 include the Magnum Pistol, the Plasma Pistol, and the Bolt Shot. You are only really likely to score kills with the Magnum and Boltshot as the Plasma Pistol will likely just end up getting you killed. If you are on a map with a lot of narrow corridors, the Bolt Shot is best but use the Magnum if you are in more wide open spaces. Now, you just need twenty-five kills over the day, not in a single game. The best place to get these kills, however, will be in a gametype like SWAT where you can just score easy headshots. If that is your plan, you will want a smaller map like Adrift or Haven, since the Magnum will get raped by a DMR or BR on the larger maps. I would expect this challenge to take about two to three games of actively trying for these kills to complete.

Rolling Thunder - Earn 5 Killing Spree medals. - 1500 XP
A Killing Spree in War Games is earned when you score five kills in a row. As this challenge stipulates "Killing Spree medals" other sprees such as weapon and miscellaneous sprees will not count. Now, you do not need eight in a single game, as that would be practically impossible, just overall but even that can be a bit of a task with the current state of War Games Matchmaking. You will undoubtedly be playing games in the SWAT playlist thanks to "Got Backup" challenge But you are not very likely to score many sprees there. Instead, head for objective playlists with large numbers of players. As well, if you can get a hold of any power weapons you should be even more set. This will likely take three or four games to complete.

The Weekly Challenges:

Spartan Takedown - Kill 350 Players. - 10000 XP
So the last time we had this for a Weekly Challenge was back in February and it was for only a hundred and fifty kills and awarding double the amount of experience points. Again, good going 343i. All in all, this challenge is not that hard. Three-hundred and fifty kills means that you need about fifty a day as seven days of that will net you the required kills. Grifball is likely the best playlist for scoring these kills as you can just play two a day and hit the fifty needed kills. If Grifball is not your thing, which is the case for many players, you may be better off in gametypes like Dominion, Big Team Infinity Slayer, and any objective gametypes that you enjoy. As long as you just get fifty kills a day everyday this week, you will complete this challenge.

In Your Face - Earn 50 CQC Medals. - 7500 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. Fifty in a week should actually be very easy with all the games you will play for "Spartan Takedown."
