Halo Infinite medals guide: All multiplayer medals and how to earn them

Earning medals is a staple of any Halo game — Spartans who prove themselves on the battlefield are recognized for their wartime accomplishments after every game alongside their kill-death ratio and overall score. While players can’t collect these medals long-term and put them on display anywhere, they’re a nice bonus at the end of a hard-fought match.

Medals aren’t exactly rare in Halo Infinite — you can definitely earn them on accident by eliminating the right enemy or something as simple as holding an Oddball for a set amount of time — but it’s nearly impossible to memorize the long list of potential awards. If you’re trying to earn every medal in the game or just want to check and see which one you keep accidentally earning, it’s great to have a checklist. We’ve rounded up the title of every available medal in Halo Infinite and what you need to do in-game to earn them. Good luck, Spartan.

Multi-kill medals

Trading lives will only get you so far in a game of Team Slayer — you need to kick it into overdrive and outwork your opponent to beat them. To earn multi-kills, you need to be at the top of your game. A well-placed grenade, superior weapon picks, or elite reflexes can earn you a couple of kills while your enemies struggle to take you down. Obviously, the top-tier multi-kill medals are a little wild, and you’ll have to play Big Team Battle or custom games to have any chance of earning them.

  • Double Kill: Kill 2 enemies in quick succession
  • Triple Kill: Kill 3 enemies in quick succession
  • Overkill: Kill 4 enemies in quick succession
  • Killtacular: Kill 5 enemies in quick succession
  • Killtrocity: Kill 6 enemies in quick succession
  • Killamanjaro: Kill 7 enemies in quick succession
  • Killtastrophe: Kill 8 enemies in quick succession
  • Killpocalypse: Kill 9 enemies in quick succession
  • Killionaire: Kill 10 enemies in quick succession

Killing-spree medals

Killing sprees require patience. You can’t go running into every firefight you spot guns blazing if you want to rack up kills. Find your power weapons, post up in a good spot, and wait for the kills to come to you. You need to stay alive to keep the streak to play defensively and strike when your enemies are weak.

Halo Infinite post-game stats page.

When you earn a medal mid-game, you’ll hear the announcer shout out the title in classic Halo fashion, and an emblem attached to the achievement will pop up on your screen.

When the match is over, you’ll be able to view a list of your earned medals along with your normal stats in the Player Recap section.

If you accidentally clicked through the recap or want to view your stats from a previous game, you can do so through the main menu. Navigate to the Control Panel, select My Profile, and then Match History. Pick a specific game from the list of recently played matches and select Match Results to view your stats and earned medals.
