Battle Hardened Achievement
Earn all Gold stars in Operations A through E
Each mission shows you what you need to get the gold star in points when you highlight it.
In this game you can earn points in two ways:
- Kills. These are your base points. The more enemies you kill the more points you get. Focus on killing every enemy on your map, even if you're not required to in order to move on.
- Medals. This is where you can significantly increase your points. The best way to get points is through multikills and sprees. You get sprees by getting several kills in a row without being shot, and you can get them with different weapons. Multikills are a Halo classic, and are obtained by killing several enemies in quick succession.
You shouldn't have too much trouble getting gold medals in this game if you have gotten the gold medal achievements in Spartan Assault. The score threshold is fairly low and fairly easy to obtain. One extra tip I have for getting more sprees is using the Bubble Shield armor ability. You can fire out while enemies cannot fire in, allowing you to rack up some easy kills without fear of getting shot.
After each mission, you can view a detailed score report. Go ahead and check it out after you play a mission to see what enemies and medals are worth the most, and see what you can try and get more of. If you're really struggling, or just want to make things easier, you can purchase a score booster for 1,000 CR per mission.
