Kill 200 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons.

You’ll automatically register the One Spartan Army Challenge on your way to pocketing this one. You’ve got two main options here, each one a brain-ventilating headshotpalooza of good wholesome fun:

  • If you’re with friends or don’t mind some randoms in Co-op, hunt for a Sniperfight to tackle all four Challenges at once; the Finish The Firefight standing page gives in-depth tactics and strategies for dome-inspecting your way through the Rounds unscathed.
  • If you feel like flying solo, simply load up Gruntpocalypse in Score Attack; select the map you like best, though here at HRD we recommend Corvette, Overlook or Courtyard, because of the open lines of sight as enemies advance.
  • Keep an eye on your ammo, and make your way back to base before the clip goes dry; your pistol doesn’t count as a precision weapon, even when it scores Headshots, so you’ll be wasting kills that don’t count toward the Challenge. Also remember that while you don’t need a Headshot for a Challenge point, the medal earns you extra Firefight cR, and your ammo will last longer before the need to restock.
