How to complete the Halo Infinite New Kid on the Block achievement

The New Kid on the Block challenge will require players to show some expertise with the VK78 Commando rifle. The VK78 is one of the new weapons in Halo Infinite, so the achievement seems like a natural way to encourage players to test out the new rifle.

Unlocking this achievement will require some serious skill as you'll need to shoot perfectly to complete it. New Kid on the Block in Halo Infinite requires players to get a Perfect Medal with the VK78 Commando rifle.

To get a Perfect Medal in Halo Infinite, players must hit all of their rifle shots and then finish off an enemy with a headshot. As mentioned this will be rather difficult to complete, and its "Rare" status certainly suggests that.

If you're having difficulty nailing all your shots in a competitive match, you could always load into a custom matchmaking lobby with a friend for an easier time. Completing New Kid on the Block in Halo Infinite will unlock a reward of 10 Gamerscore points, which will add to your overall total and further boost your profile.
