Posted 03 May 2016 - 03:18 AM

This is the link, for obvious reasons so you guys will join and help out: https://www.halowayp...icommunityforum

 

 

Anyways, I am going to make a list of the Commendations and quickest ways I believe will help us finish them faster.

 

1. From Downtown: Longshots

    This is a harder one to get, but... If you play SWAT, hope for Truth. As soon as you spawn, whoever you headshot across the map at the opposing spawn is always a longshot.

   The other way to do it, would do play Warzone and to equip a Long Barrel on your BR. This reduces spread at longer ranges, plus aim assist extends to a further range. For example, BR someone from East Armory on Apex 7's Spire.

 

2. Forgot to Pay the Toll: Buckle Up

   This isn't that hard folks, BTB maps usually have a sniper rifle at start and there's always Warthogs and Goose's you can headshot the drivers/passengers out of.

   Warzone, spawn a sniper and hope you the enemy doesn't spawn a tank.

 

3. Almost Doesn't Count: Close Call

  When you engage a head-on-head 1v1, finish your opponent. And if your shields have dropped, take the time to take cover until they recharge. This is a close call.

  Hard Target's also count, recharge your shields 10 times to get one. This doesn't necessarily require you to kill anyone.

 

4. From the Top Rope: Ground Pounds

   Pretty much as it says, just ground pound opponents from above. Works in everything except Breakout and SWAT. Just make sure they're not aware of you ground pounding until the last second. Don't ground pound whilst already being fired out. You will die.

 

5. Road Trip: Ground Vehicle Kills.

  Literally play Warzone or BTB and kill players with a vehicle that is not a Banshee or not a Phaeton. 

 

6. I'm just Perfect: Perfect Kills

   You better leave this to Drizzy and I.

 

7. Bodyguard: Protector Medals.

   Guardian Angel, Bodygaurd, and Protector's are all 3 types of Protector Medals. Basically, if your teammate has his shields pop. Intervene and kill the person that's shooting them, before they die.

 

8. Too Fast for You: Reversal

   Let them shoot you first with anything, and IF you're good enough. Shoot after they fire the first shot, and kill them. Without dying.

 

9. The Pain Train: Spartan Charge's

   You don't need help with this, this is Halo 5. Everyone does it.

 

10. The Reaper: Kill From the Grave

   Pretty much always make sure you have a plasma grenade to stick somebody if you know you aren't going to win the battle. The somebody doesn't have to be the guy shooting you.

 

11. Standard Issue: Use Standard Loadout Weapons for Kills

   This DOES work in Warzone. However, it requires you to use the weapons without using attachments. So base AR, BR, Magnum, DMR, H2 BR, and SMG all count as standard. Just make sure not to put something on, like kinetic bolts or a bayonet. Otherwise it doesn't count as Standard Loadout.

 

12. Look Ma No Pin: Grenade Kills

   Spam them down every single hallway possible, put on the Grenadier perk too in Warzone and you'll have CE Nukes.

 

13. Vandalism: Destroy an enemy vehicle.

   Simple, blow it up with them inside of it.

 

14. First Strike

   For some reason, this seems to be really really hard. All you guys gotta do is, play a match. And do everything possible, to get the first kill. Even if you die right afterwards. It doesn't matter, you weren't going to get that perfection anyways Yoshi.

 

15. Lucky (Cluster Luck, Last Shot, Fastball)

   This is what I refer to as the "Sparky Edition" as him and I were playing SWAT and he got about 20 of them throughout 5 games.

   Play SWAT, if it's SWATnums or SWAT DMR's... Shoot out your entire clip except the last shot, hence the name of the medal. And then shoot that last bullet, into an enemie's dome. SWAT works best because no shields.

 

16.  Something on your Face: Headshots

   1. Play SWAT

   2. This isn't that hard, headshots are a guaranteed kill. If they have no shields, shoot dem in the face.

 

17. Lawnmower: Splatter

   Leave it to Yoshi to get the betrayals...  However, this best works in the 3 Covenant vehicles: Ghost, Wraith, and Banshee. Banshee being the last one to use for Splatters. Warzone is perfect for these.

 

18. Sorry Mate: Kill Marine's

   Play Warzone, attempt to take the enemie's armory by yourself, or with a fellow Company player. There's at least 3 Marine's in an armory, 5-6 in a Central base.

 

19. Grand Theft: Hijack/Skyjack

   Simple, especially in Warzone. If you see a Ghost attempting to splatter you. (Works best with ghosts.) Face the ghost, jump, thruster backwards, and hold your hijack button. You might have no shields or health at the very least, but you'll get the medal either way.

 

20. So Cuddly: Assassinations

   Leave the expertise to Sparky and I

 

21 & 22. Promethean Kills and Elite Kills

   Warzone Firefight. Duh.

 

23. Not so Tough: Boss Takedowns

   I mean, it's Warzone. If you wanna win. Just kill the bosses. Everyone except S'Raom. I got a grudge to settle with him.

 

24. Till Someone Loses an Eye: Sniper Medals

   As the title literally says, use a Sniper rifle. Any type of sniper kill counts, as long as you don't shoot them in the body twice. Like a scrub.

 

25. Kicking it old school: BXR, Nadeshot, and Noob Combo Medals.

   If you have a BR, you're already set for 2/3 of the medals as soon as you respawn. Getting them is your own doing.

 

26. Power Play:

   Literally just play Fiesta Slayer and get kills.

 

27. It's a bird! Aerial Vehicle Kills

   Don't worry about this, I got us to Tier 5 on our own, I can finish it for us on my own.

 

28. Is there no one else? Triple Kills and more

   Every multikill counts as one, as soon as you get a triple kill. They just keep stacking points. However, the best way to get these is to play SWAT, if you're good. Or just use Rocket Launchers or Nornfangs or something. Whatever, requires skill though.

 

29. Not so Fast: Busted

   This requires two people, one of them needs to drive a Scorpion.

 

30. Sting like a Bee: Melee kills

   Since instead of finishing kills with an AR like a fair player would, shoot at least 75% of their shields and then melee. Put a name out there as you being called, "That guy."

 

31. Achilles: Maybe?

If we get this before 2017, it'll be a miracle. Thx for being active, all 8/44 of you. :3

This might be difficult to ask of some people but could we make a push at Standard Issue? Just use base weapons of whatever loadout you prefer in Warzone except for power weapons.

First Strike is now easier to get!

 

Just play Infection, every round is now a chance towards First Strike! With 4 rounds in 1 game!

Unlike Breakout.

Hey everyone we're getting really close to finishing tier 2 of Reversals. In my opinion, the best way to get reversals is using the Boltshot. It's a 4 shot kill that tracks so if you're gonna die and you get enough shots off, you're almost guaranteed a reversal and you may even win the fight if they miss. 

 

We're also very close to kills from the grave but you guys should know a good grenade before dying should take care of that.

 

REMINDER: Try to stick to base weapons in Warzone so we can work on standard weapon kills. THAT MEANS NO ATTACHMENTS.

 

FTC!

Weekly Warzone should be helpful to completing some commendations tonight. 

 

We're close to finishing tier 2 Reversal and Spartan Charge and tier 3 Kills from the Grave.

As of now we are 50 Spartan Charges away from completing tier 2, 35 Busted away from completing tier 3, and 33 Kills from the Grave from completing tier 3. We may be able to get some Company Commendation Packs this week and weekend!

 

Don't forget to use BASE WEAPONS (no attachments) in Warzone so we can complete this tier two of Standard Issue!

Standard issue consist of the following:

 

Assault Rifle

Magnum

SMG

Battle Rifle

Halo 2 BR

DMR

 

When using these weapons you cannot use any attachments, and standard scope is required. For example, that means no Projection sight on the SMG no Recon Sight on the DMR, no Longshot on the AR, and definitely no Classic scope on the BR.

Kinetic bolts, Bayonet, Knight Blade, Suppressor, Ammuntion, and all other attachments do not count towards it either

Headshots are lacking. Easy fix: SWAT. Try to get some SWAT games in this week when you're not playing the Halo Wars 2 Beta. It's also good for Reversals, standard weapon kills, Spartan kills, and possibly First Strikes.

 

We also need more grenade kills and Clusterlucks. I find that a good way to get Clusterlucks is in Infection. Which is another good source for First Strikes. 

 

We only need 29 more Busteds to complete tier 3!

 

Besides Ghosts, another good, if not better, source for getting Splatters is the Rally Hog. Don't believe me?

Hello everyone,

 

We need 303 more grenade kills. I recommend Infection and Warzone. Hopefully HTA can get a Weekly Warzone lobby going this weekend. Yoshi and I won't be in attendance however because we'll be gone. 

 

Only 16 more Busteds! Weekly Warzone should help @Fishy

 

Clusterlucks and Last Shots: Infection and SWAT. Infection to grenade multiple zombies hiding around corners and SWAT to waste all your bullets down to the last one and kill someone with it a la @Marxiel method.

 

Gotta play more SWAT to get those headshots, Spartan kills, and standard weapon kills! Any Arena playlist in general is usually good for these but SWAT is particularly good for headshots obviously. 

 

We aren't terribly far, I've seen worse. But we have a ways to go. Let's aim for end of summer.

I am just curious... Is this confirmed? My spartan company has been wondering what is actually fact about this commendation. We were going to run some numbers to see if we actually confirm to some degree what is allowed. It's really hard to exactly get accurate results having 100 members involved. There's too many variables to account for. 343 is the only one that can give real facts about it. I wish they would define some of these commendations a little better so we know exactly what's permissible without having to go through all the trial and error to find out.

Yes this has been confirmed before (by Bravo I believe).
