Skyjack (Skyjacker in Halo 3) is a medal awarded in Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians and Halo Infinite multiplayer (as well as campaign in Reach) for hijacking an enemy aircraft. In Halo 3 and Reach it is represented by an eagle on a gold shield atop a bronze cross. In Halo 4 the eagle is atop a blue circle and a grey cross turned 45 degrees. In Halo 5: Guardians the eagle is on a yellow roadsign. As this medal is attained, a message appears on the screen, saying "You skyjacked (player's name)". In Halo Infinite this is a Common-rarity skill medal.

A good tactic to get this medal is to throw a Power Drain, or to shoot an overcharged Type-25/54D Plasma Pistol bolt or EMP grenade at an incoming aircraft. The aircraft will be stunned, leaving the player an opportunity to hijack it. In Halo Infinite these tactics can be used with the Disruptor, Sicatt Workshop shock rifle and Dynamo grenades to cause an EMP effect, or using a Grappleshot.

The Skyjack medal is the counterpart in some games of the Hijack Medal, in which the player boards a land-based vehicle.


  • Earning this medal in the Halo: Reach campaign unlocks the Banshees, Fast and Low achievement.
  • Although the medal is included in the list of Halo: Reach Firefight medals, the Banshees in Firefight cannot be hijacked and therefore the medal cannot be awarded.
