    This is an even more efficient way than the other solutions, allowing you to get 6-7 watcher kills in 10 seconds

    Level - Shutdown (Rally Point Bravo)
    Difficulty - Easy
    Incineration Cannon from knight before checkpoint/Binary Rifle from rack

    MrKoolxDoodi found that moving up a bit from the checkpoint helped my cannon shots hit more consistently and accurately. still working on this one tho

    WeezleramIf the Watchers aren't lining up like they are in the solution video, try moving slightly forward or back each time you load the checkpoint. I found that scooting slightly back and to the left made the watchers move to clump together a lot better. If I stood still where my checkpoint spot was, they would all just stay in four separate corners.

    Since the addition of Spartan Ops, there's a much less boring way I have found to do this. Load up Episode 5 (Memento Mori) Chapter 1 (Spartan Miller). At the start you'll need to run tot he top where you will be greeted by 3 waves of watchers, first one solo, then 2 groups of 7.

    Halo: The Master Chief CollectionDogcatcherThe Dogcatcher achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection worth 38 pointsKill 1000 Crawlers.


    then continue the mission and you will swarmed by a shit tonne (no seriously, see for yourself, this is a justified usage for that phrase) of knights crawlers and watchers.

    It's also far less tedious than grinding those campaign checkpoints as there's an unlimited supply of different human weaponry scattered around to customise your killing sprees with. Enjoy!

    Runner eGirlhaven't tried it yet, but this also might be useful if you're working on your legendary campaign and you want to grind these without losing your progress

    Assuming you want to grind this after the campaign, the best place to do it is to load up Midnight, Rally Point Bravo. You'll fight through a couple of rooms with 2-3 Watchers (the flying enemies with two circles) in each room. This is probably the best place to grind them. Take them out and keep reloading the checkpoint until you get enough.

    If you want to grind Crawler and Knight kills, the best place is a little further through the level. Go through the rooms and down a shaft. Eventually you'll go through some portals into a room with a lot of Covenant weaponry. Grab the Gravity Hammer and the Incineration Cannon and go through the portal. That next area has a bunch of Knights and Crawlers, and you can keep reloading that point, too.

    Strategy OnePeople didn't like my image of what they look like lol. I don't see why some people can't just positive vote both solutions when mine shows what they even look like. I didn't even know what a watcher was when I started this and I played Halo 4! Hah. Well at least your getting the votes.
