Sharpshooter Halo 3 Medal Icon

"Sharpshooter" is a spree medal awarded in Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach and Halo Infinite Multiplayer, Campaign and Firefight. In Halo: 3 and Halo 3: ODST it is awarded for killing ten opponents in a row with the Sniper Rifle or Type-50 particle beam rifle (together or not) without dying. In Halo: Reach the medal does not require kills to be consecutive, just that the player kill ten enemies with a sniper weapon without dying. In Halo Infinite this is only five kills within a match.

Note that the player doesn't have to get five sniper headshots in a row, just five kills with a sniping weapon. Melees with a sniper weapon do not count toward the medal.

It is represented by a bronze five-pointed star with green crosshairs.


  • This is easier to get with the Sniper Rifle due to the more rapid rate of fire, more ammo capacity and more appearances throughout the many Halo maps.
  • One of the best tactics for getting this medal is in wide open maps i.e. (Sandtrap, Last Resort and Valhalla).
  • If you are trying to get this medal by getting 10 consecutive sniper kills, try to stay far back, so you can pick off enemies. However, make sure you have cover if you need to retreat. If someone decides to rush close range, try to pre-nade to lower their shield, requiring only 1 no scope shot to kill them rather than two or the hard no scope headshot.
  • A way to get this is to play Team Snipers on Sandtrap. Hang out by the Albatross and Phantom.
