Kill 100 enemies in Firefight Matchmaking with precision weapons.

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 on Glacier to tackle all four Challenges at once; see below for details on the Demon and Grunt Spelunking Challenges.
  • If you feel like flying solo, simply load up Gruntpocalypse in Score Attack; do it on Glacier and you’ll be knocking back only three of the Challenges (no Elites, sorry) but you’ll have map selection control and will notch this Challenge before the first Round ends. (You can, of course, skip the Grunts for a paltry serving of Elites in standard Score Attack, but at that point you might as well simply find a Glacier match that lasts three Rounds instead of one.)
  • Either way, 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.
