Kill 50 enemies with precision weapons in the Campaign today.

Load up any Campaign level on Normal that offers a precision weapon plus lots o’ Grunts, and get to work.

ONI Sword Base features a DMR start and opens in the middle of a firefight, plus there’s a Sniper Rifle at the end of the base-side Terrace for pwning Elites once you’ve cleared the Jackals and Grunts. Winter Contingency at Rally Point Bravo literally drops you into a Fodder-O-Rama of a firefight; and though you enter with an Assault Rifle, a DMR conveniently awaits your weapon swap on the asphalt leading to the rear bunker, with more ammo for it just inside.

(Nightfall, of course, spawns you with a Sniper, but with 50 kills in front of you, it’s not going to wrap things as quickly; and do you really want Jun telling you to “do it quiet” again? Anyway, take yer pick.)

Concentrate on headshots against Grunts and Jackals, since those award extra Medal cR, and don’t waste DMR ammo on the Elites — you’ll probably run out of enemies before hitting the half-century mark and need to revert the Checkpoint anyway; so, unless you feel like sniping, you might as well reset as soon as you’ve cleaned slate on the lesser Covies.

If you run low on ammo, simply swipe Needle Rifles from the fallen Jackals; those register precision kills like a DMR, but heading into a bunker for a DMR reload can trigger a Checkpoint, meaning you’d have to settle for a full level restart.

    If you’re not opposed to reverting to saved and repeating, follow these steps to complete the challenge in under 3 minutes:

    1. Load up rally point Bravo on “The Package” on normal
    2. Run down and to the right where you will find a bridge
    3. Don’t cross the bridge, but hide just to the right of it. A phantom will come and drop 7 or 8 grunts on the other side.
    4. The grunts will walk towards you, when you see that they’re right next to you on your radar, 180 and sprint away up the hill.
    5. Once your sprint has run out, turn and line up a head shot on the first grunt while all the time walking backwards up the hill.
    6. All going to plan you should get a check point, then you can pop each grunt in the head, revert to save, rinse and repeat.
