Does anyone else just have war games challenges showing up this week? Quite annoying having no spartan ops or campaign ones

Is this the first time something like this has happened?

I think I remember that there were 6 SPOPS challenges and 6 Campaign challenges on launch week, but at the start of the second week the challenges in SPOPS and Campaign were reduced to 3 and 2, respectively. Maybe this is just going to be a "break week/day" of sorts. Hopefully someone's trying to think of new challenges.

I just looked on Waypoint and it shows the weekly challenges, but not in-game! This is a bunch of bullshit!

I noticed the lack of challenges as well when I started up Halo 4 earlier today. I wonder if this was done intentionally or if someone made a mistake? I really hope this isn't a new standard. Having a new batch of Halo Spartan Ops without some challenges to go along with it feels wrong.

i just checked halo waypoint and it seems the challenges are in and worth quite a bit as well
the 2 campaign ones are 30000 and 10000
the 2 weekly war games ones are 20000 and 10000
only 2 spartan ops challenges but they are worth 10000 and 20000

big xp considering the value of the challenges in the past

Does anyone know why we're suddenly getting a lot more XP this week? Not that i'm complaining, i think it's cool and about time for those of us that don't really like playin the MP to get a little something extra for doing challenges on Campaign and Spartan Ops. Hope it continues at this amount.

I played Reclaimer on legendary + 4 skulls on with my buddy. It's really not that difficult, if you use the Gauss Hog and the Mammoth rockets. You can use the left launcher to shoot enemies on the right side. You aim right through the mammoth, red crosshair, and then fire above the mammoth. This way you can easily kill the 10.000 ghosts.

yea its tough. I kept my magnum as much as possible. it takes 3 plasma shots to drop elite shields. I just cleared out all the grunts in each area picked up the plasma granades and used every plasma guns to hit elites 3 times then magnum to the head. sometimes I'd toss a granade after a plasma shot and stick em. then when you get to the last area grab the concussion rifle from the elite in the room your having trouble with and skip the whole last area. if you dont know how to do that check the legendary guide sticky by I think thebiggd (sorry if I messed up your name) his guide for dawn has a video of a guy doing it. hope this helps.

C

I also tried the "a hard rain" challenge on dawn last night. I got stuck for a while on the room with the one elite on the platform with the grunts all around. Finally for the elite after an hour. Put like 1,000,000 rounds from the assault rifle in him and he survived. Finally I got frustrated and just ran behind him and kept meleeing him and killed him. Now there's 3 of them. Ill have to try the plasma pistol trick. But is that 3 charged shots? Or just three quick shots in succesion? And do the elites shields recharge just likes MC?

three charged shots
just carry around a plasma pistol and a magnum all the time and when their shields go down quickly switch to your magnum and shoot them in the head

Ah

Finally got the circle room done, now the real dilemma, I went down the stairs to the hall with 2 elites, killed first one, but now I'm stuck with the carbine at 30% and a dead plasma pistol. And when I die I despawn there. There's no other weapons if I backtrack. I mele killed the elite once but got killed by the last grunt in the group. Tried a dozen more times to kill that elite but I keep dying. Maybe if I focus the remainder of the gun on the grunts first, then mele the elite? Still haven't figured out how to assassinate them. I know you hold the mele button down (I use fish stick control scheme) but he always kills me first. Can I load the level from like alpha or bravo checkpoints and still get the achievement? And where dose bravo bring you? I'm glad I joined this site! It's a great wealth of knowledge and the people are awsome!

Ya! Finnaly got "a hard rain" last night! Had to run past that elite at the end of the coridor and mele a grunt, but had to skip that elite. Big circle room gave some troubles, and then got to the last battle and skipped it! Also got the "shield break" by playing sniper aley on easy. Thought you could only do norm so I killed a few and checked if it counted. And it did

Yes. The Campaign and Spartan Ops output are really nice. Especially since both of the Campaign Challenges tend to overlap one another. Shutdown with Mythic, Tilt, Tough Luck, Famine, and Thunderstorm for a smooth 40k. Just went ahead and did the whole thing SLASO since I'm working my way through all of them slowly. 3 down; 5 to go.
