It’s been a while since I’ve posted a medal guide. While I’m sure most of you have already made tons of progress in Operation 4 this guide is to show methods to be fast and efficient with your time. This guide tackles the “Basic” section of the Tour of Duty which nets you 2,000 coins. However, it touches a total of 15 medals (not fully branched out just yet), which means more coins in your hands faster for the new Gears 5 store. Below will recap how to complete these medals, however, if you prefer a video guide. You’ll be able to find that above.
There’s 6 medals you must complete.
- Team Medic - Revive 150 teammates
- Executioner - Perform 150 executions
- Finish Them - Kill 4,000 enemies
- Marksman - Get 500 headshot kills
- Bodycount - Get 12,000 eliminations; and lastly
- Carnage - Get 10,000,000 damage in all game modes.
The easiest way to complete these medals is to read below:
Team Medic - Load up Horde. Select wave 42/43. Play as Jack with AI Bots on. Activate the More Health, More Lethal, and Regen Penalty modifiers. This will allow the AI teammates to get downed quicker and not quick enemies as quick. After 15 minutes this medal should be completed.
Executioner - Load up Horde. Select Wave 5 and be Kait or Mac as they both spawn and start with the Retro Lancer. Continue to retro charge enemies and you’ll get this medal and also the Retro Body Count medal.
Finish Them / Bodycount - While kills and eliminations are different, as a solo player they count the same. Load up Escape on Beginner selecting the hive “The Detour”. Play as Lizzie, Lahni, Emile, Cole, Grace, or Marcus. There will be what feels like an infinite amount of Juvies that spawn. Kill them over and over. If leeches spawn, restart the lobby.
Carnage - Load up Horde. Select Kait or anyone high powered offensive hero you have. Select Wave 20 and enable the More Health modifier. This will net you 200,000 damage per wave. Die before killing the last enemy and restart.
