Halo 4 War Games Daily and Weekly Challenges - 6/11/13

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

The Challenges:

Spray And Pray - Get 50 kills with an Automatic Loadout Weapon. - 1000 XP
Well, this is more than it was worth last time, at least. Still needs to award a bit more credits, however. 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. These fifty kills, luckily, do not need to be in a single game and can be earned over the entire day. 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 both 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. Expect this challenge to take a four or five games to complete.

The Kingslayer - Earn 12 Regicides. - 2200 XP
And more Regicide. It figures, the one day we do not have a challenge to win games in a certain playlist, we are still being forced into playlists. Now, Regicides are earned when you kill the King in a Regicide match, whether Team or Free-for-all. Unlike yesterday, you will need twelve Regicides rather than five or so. Whether you play standard Regicide or Team Regicide, slaying the King should be a regular occurrence, though less often in Team Regicide because you have an entire team to contend with. If you find it hard to come by King kills, head to the standard (FFA) Regicide and you can easily rack up the Regicides needed in two or three games (it is not uncommon to get almost ten Regicides a game in Free-for-all).

The Weekly Challenges:
One, Two, Three, Four... - Earn 50 Multikill medals. - 6250 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. Fifty multikills will likely only take five or so games to complete in the right gametype.

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 so do not worry here.
