Linktacular Halo 3 Medal Icon

Linktacular is a medal which was awarded in Halo 3 and Halo: Reach Multiplayer, for playing in a matchmaking game composed entirely of users; meaning they have registered on by linking their gamertag to the profile. In Halo 3, each linked gamertag is signified by the Seventh Column symbol beside their gamertag in-game, while Halo: Reach players may choose among various nameplates. The image consists of a blue circle with the Seventh Column in the center. The medal does not appear in-game and can only be viewed on

On March 31, 2012 ceased updating Halo game stats and player records, transferring all record-keeping responsibilities to Halo Waypoint.[1] As Linktacular could only be viewed on the site, it is no longer awarded.


  • It would sometimes be hard to earn this medal, as many people were not signed up at, and the player had no control over who was in their matchmaking game.
  • This medal could have been awarded if there were guests in the match, but only if the profile was a guest of the player who was registered with
  • A player was more likely to receive the medal if they were in a playlist with fewer people. In Halo: Reach, players with linked accounts would earn the medal for every game of Score Attack they played; since they were the only player on the game, they were guaranteed to get the medal.
