Halo 4 War Games Daily Challenges - 7/14/13

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

The Challenges:

Game Over, Man! - Complete 10 matchmaking War Games matches. - 1500 XP
So, this challenge is a lot easier than it ever was in Halo Reach for one simple reason; you do not actually have to be in the game from start to finish for it to count. Really, you only need to be in there at the end. This means that join-session-in-progress games will count for this challenge as long as you are in there once the game finishes. Work on the "Exterminate! Exterminate!" challenge first and then move on to whatever games you please to finish off this challenge. Remember, that getting kicked, disconnected, or quitting from games will cause them not to count for this challenge. You just need to complete ten games, so this shouldn't take long.

Exterminate! Exterminate! - Kill every member of the opposing team at least once in a match. - 1500 XP
This is what we call a poorly described challenge. When this says to kill every member of the opposing team in a match, it fails to mention that this need to be done five times. You can somewhat treat this like an actually Extermination from Reach, but just spread out over an entire game. As well, there is a commendation that tracks this. Now, you do need to kill every member of the opposing team, just not at all once. This probably happens more often than not without you even noticing it. You will want to stick to gametypes with a low number of players per team. This means Team Slayer Pro, Infinity Slayer, or SWAT. Each one of those gametypes has teams of four players maximum. I'm not entirely sure how people joining and leaving the game effect this stat, but most likely you will need to have killed every player who is on the team once the game ends. Will take at least five games to complete.

  1. Griffball is also an excellent way to knock out the exterminate challenge.

    1. Yes it is, and it completely slipped my mind. Thanks for reminding me.
