Kill 40 enemies with Sniper Rifle headshots in Nightfall on Normal.

A so-easy-Justin-Bieber-could-do-it Challenge. Nightfall‘s a particularly easy level for this: it’s dark, you start with a Sniper, and you’re on a hill overlooking unsuspecting Covies — the only way Bungie could make it easier is if the Elites actively lunged into your bullets with their foreheads.

Just flip on Night Vision, take aim, and fire away. You can even skip the opening assassination of the Elite taking a leak on the Grunts below, and just headshot him from behind. (OK, so, maybe he’s not actually taking a leak; but then, what the hell is he doing there?)

When you’re done with the first Elite and two Grunts, advance to the cliff overlooking the makeshift Covenant base. Start picking off Covies until you run out of ammo or run out of enemies; then you can simply restart the level and repeat, until the Challenge Complete banner flashes onscreen.

Easy, right? Well, at least it’s a chance to use Sniper rounds on some Grunts without feeling retarded about it. (If you want a real challenge, there’s apparently a way to line up the first Elite in your sites and then back up into a Checkpoint; pull the trigger, then reload the game rather than the Sniper Rifle and you’re done in five minutes. We’ve never tried it, but feel free to knock yourselves out.)
