343 Industries surprised the Halo community when it released the multiplayer component of Halo Infinite in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Xbox this month. As Halo Infinite’s multiplayer provided players with a litany of challenges and matchmaking types to get involved in, there are also several achievements to earn.
One of these achievements, ‘Slaying with Style’, is tied to earning a Mythic Medal which presents another challenge of its own. If you have yet to be rewarded with this achievement or have no clue what a Mythic Medal is, this guide will detail all the information you need to acquire it.
What is the ‘Slaying with Style’ achievement in Halo Infinite?
The achievement, ‘Slaying with Style’, linked to the Mythic medal, needs to be rewarded when players earn the elusive Mythic Medal from a matchmade game. What makes this confusing is that the medal itself doesn’t exist in-game.
However, True Achievements have explained the confusion around this achievement as well as detailing how players can earn this achievement.
How to earn the Mythic Medal in Halo Infinite?
According to a post on the True Achievements page, the Mythic Medal isn’t a medal but rather a category of medals players earn in-game. This group of medals “are broadcasted in the kill feed when achieved” and “are distinctly recognised by their red colour palette”.
There are several Mythic medals players can achieve in Halo Infinite, which are as follows:
- Overkill: eliminating four enemies back-to-back
- Running Riot: eliminating 15 or more enemies without dying
- Ninja: eliminating an enemy by jumping and backsmacking them
- Fastball: eliminating an enemy using the blast impact from a thrown grenade (not the explosion itself)
- Perfection: winning a game having 15 or more kills without dying
- Quigley: using a single round from the S7 Sniper to eliminate two or more enemies
- Remote Detonation: eliminating an enemy by using a grenade
For players to earn any of these medals right now is through the Bot Bootcamp playlist, which places players in teams of four against four AI players/bots. Bot Bootcamp can be accessed from the matchmaking playlist screen in multiplayer mode.
While this workaround will reward players with the ‘Slaying with Style’ achievement, it specifically states that it needs to be done in a “matchmade game” and against human players.
For now, you can play through the Bot Bootcamp to earn a number of these Mythic medals, but we suggest aiming for the Ninja Mythic medal as it is the easiest to achieve. 343 Industries will likely patch this workaround in a future update for which, we will update this story once information becomes available.
