Update: 5/4/2016

As of May 1st, Halo 4 challenges are back online. Get to work on the challenges as soon as you can in case issues mentioned below every happen again.

Update: 2/21/2016
Since 1/1/16 this achievement may now be unobtainable. Challenges have ceased to be updated and there has been no response from 343i on the matter.

If you'd like to way in on the issue there is a petition via Change.org created by, TA user "Seitzz", for the issue. Alternatively, you can continue tweeting/DM @Brav on twitter who is the community manager for 343 and generate enough interest for them to get to fixing the issue.

Update: 1/6/2016
In the past few months, there have been a few instances where challenges have been non-existent on Halo 4. Most recently since the new year has begun players have been without challenges. For any and all future issues I suggest posting your issues on the Halo Waypoint forums at the following link for Halo 4 support. I cannot provide anything other than what I have provided here to resolve your issues. There is no fix if challenges aren't there, they are a part of the Halo 4 servers and if 343 chooses not to put them out there then you're out of luck.

This achievement is for completing 25 challenges across "War Games", "Spartan Ops", and "Campaign". In the start menu next to your service record there is a tab labeled challenges. In that you can view the current challenges for each game type.

There are:

These challenges will require you to do something specific in each game mode such as for War Games getting 9 kills with a secondary weapon in one game. You can track your progress of a challenge in the same place you found it. Challenges are not to be confused with commendations, they are an entirely different thing. Once you have reached 25 challenges completed your achievement "should" pop.

Additional Notes: Challenges can not be repeated.
The number of challenges completed can be viewed in your service record menu in game under Spartan - War Games tab.

Updated 11/12/12: Some users report that the achievement wouldn't unlock till more than 25 challenges were completed. No definite explanation but the common symptoms include not completing the game mode in which the challenge was completed in. i.e. playing a chapter of spartan ops and earning the challenge mid-way and then quitting out. May also be due to the server issues that were plaguing the launch of Halo 4.
