Several challenges have asked for kills with "precision loadout weapons"? What weapons qualify and do you need to start with them?

To Be Precise

A "Precision Loadout Weapon" is a precision rifle-type weapon that you can spawn with.

There are 4 weapons that meet this criteria: DMR, Battle Rifle, Covenant Carbine and Light Rifle.

If you want to quickly complete this challenge, I would recommend playing SWAT, since you have to start with a precision weapon and enemies die with a single headshot.

Also, keep in mind if the playlist has you spawn with a precision weapon that is normally a pick-up weapon, this still counts. For example, in Team Snipers you spawn with a Sniper Rifle; this does count towards these type of challenges.

In addition, any playlist that spawned you with a precision rifle (i.e. Sniper Rifle) would also count. This type of challege was easy to get when Team Snipers was in rotation (but has since been removed :( ) – tombull89 Nov 30 '12 at 18:31
Good point, I'll edit my answer. Thanks. – Taylor K. Nov 30 '12 at 19:36
