Halo 5 commendations and medals revealed

 

banner3-7cd39e3520a64a0ab4bb74344c301bfd

 

In a recent blog by Bravo we get the full list of commendations and medals along with a sneak peak on how the medals will look like.

 

Commendations are returing as a reward system for achieving certain feats. Each commendation has 5 tiers and every achieved tier earns you an EXP bonus. Completing each 3rd tier of a commendation will reward you with a bonus REQ pack containing boosts and other single use REQs. Completeing the 5th tier of a commendation will get you a REQ pack containing a specific emblem to show off your achievement.

 

Here's the commendation list of day 1:

Medals are also returning as expected and have suffered a few losses, but gained alot. Bravo interviewed multiplayer designer Max Grossman on the new medal design.

Here's a little snippet of the interview:

 

"When we look at creating a new Medal, we have to make sure it satisfies a few rules. A Medal needs to be an explicit action that a player can perform; rather than something that can “just happen.” Players should have a clear idea of what it is that they did to earn the Medal. For example, we removed the Reload This Medal because it didn’t satisfy this criterion. Second, a Medal needs to promote good behavior and should never reinforce a negative action. You won’t see the Comeback Kill Medal in Halo 5 because it reminded players that they had died 3 times in a row without getting a kill. When a player is playing poorly, they already know; they don’t need the reminder. Lastly, a Medal has to have akiller name. “Bulltrue.” “Overkill.” “Reversal.”  I always like to imagine Jeff Steitzer’s (the infamous multiplayer Announcer) voice in my head whenever trying to come up with Medal names. For as many new Medals that appear in Halo 5, there are just as many that we tinkered with during development that didn’t make the cut."

(Sorry for the ugly lay-out, the site wouldn't let me upload it any neater for some reason...)

 

We also got a little sneak peak at some of the medal designs.

Hopefully these aren't as much of a pain to earn as some of Halo 4's. "Plasma Pistol kills" my arse...

Nice to see commendations making a comeback, they were a real satisfaction back in Reach. The medals look a little too colourful and child-like, we don't have 5 year olds serving in the military.

 

Another nice article P34nut, looks like you're getting all the good news. :yay:
