Halo 4 Spartan Ops Commendation Farming and Boosting

Halo 4 Spartan Ops Commendation Farming and Boosting

First off, if you are boosting for XP then you will want to be playing Spartan Ops in Co-Op mode as this rewards you with about 7700XP per chapter, playing alone rewards you with all the commendation kills but only about 3000XP per chapter.

All chapter stats below were recorded while playing on normal mode and can differ slightly if playing on a different difficulty, also take note that the Knight stats have been recorded with the Watchers reviving them, so let them do their work and bring the Knights back from the dead for more kills.

The best chapters to farm a specific enemy is as follows:

    Just so you know, your numbers for Forerunner enemies are off by a lot for episode 5, chapter 1 “Spartan Miller” Like instead of 34 Knights, I average only 17 per game. There are only two Knight commanders as well. I can’t figure out how many there actually are, but your numbers are off.
