The move to be a PC-first game with a movement and aim system properly configured for mouse and keyboard has elevated Infinite's multiplayer to a previously unseen degree and the future is bright for the title for both casual and competitive players.
One aspect unchanged is the game's rewarding of kill streaks or killing sprees in the game's parlance, and once activated you will hear that iconic booming voice announcing your feat.
Halo Infinite also has a number of Killing Spree medals that reward players for killing multiple enemies without dying.
So, you may be wondering just how do you unlock these Killing Sprees? And if you are, this is the guide for you.
What is a Killing Spree?
A Killing Spree is a medal type in Halo Infinite that rewards players for killing multiple enemies in Halo Infinite without dying.
The first spree starts at five kills and the last dubbed "Demon" is for killing 40 opponents without dying.
There is also a Killing Spree medal for ending another player's spree called "Killjoy".
How to get a Killing Spree
Getting a Killing Spree is easy on paper but hard in practice, crucial to your success in doing so will be not killing per se, but staying alive.
If you are attempting to get a Killing Spree you will want to stay alive as long as possible. Pick your fights with thought, don't take an easy kill if it puts you in harm's way and remember to position yourself as such that you can hide and recharge your shields.
Also, you will need a cool head, think about trying to play defensively -- not offensively -- picking people off with a sniper, from afar, rather than running and gunning.
Halo Infinite - Killing Spree medals
In total there are nine Killing Spree medals and they come in four varieties; Normal, Heroic, Legendary, and Mythic.
|Killing Spree Medals|
|Killjoy||Normal||End an enemy's killing spree|
|Killing Spree||Heroic||Kill 5 enemies without dying|

There are also medals for killing enemies in quick succession, though these are separate from Killing Spree medals and are called Multikill medals.
|Double Kill||Heroic||Kill 2 enemies in quick succession|
|Triple Kill||Legendary||Kill 3 enemies in quick succession|
|Overkill||Mythic||Kill 4 enemies in quick succession|
|Killtacular||Mythic||Kill 5 enemies in quick succession|

Getting any or all of these will take a fair amount of time but probably less of a grind than Halo Infinite's infamous battle pass.
