The Splatter (Roadkill in Halo 2) medal is awarded in campaign, multiplayer, Firefight and Spartan Ops and achieved for hitting and killing an opponent with a vehicle. It is represented in Halo 2 and the Halo 3 Beta by a five-pointed star with a tire in the center (this image was later used for the Wheelman Medal). In Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo: Reach it is represented by a yellow diamond street sign depicting a person split in half at the waist, imposed on a bronze cross. In Halo 4 the sign is imposed on a grey 4-pointed star. In Halo 5: Guardians the medal consists of the street sign only.

This medal is accompanied with the message, "You splattered (player)". It is also possible to splatter a player with an object by launching it with an explosive, using a Gravity Hammer, or by launching a large object through a Man Cannon.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Halo 3 medal also resembles the "Bob-B-Q" medal from Marathon: Durandal.
  • The medal has a Bungie difficulty rating of 1 out of 10.
  • An altered version of this medal can be seen on Sandbox. The sign first appeared in the series as the Zanzibar Sign Easter Egg on October 31, though the emblem's design has been a symbol of Bungie for far longer.
  • Earning this medal in a Halo 2 Vista multiplayer game unlocks the Roadkill achievement.
  • Earning this medal with the Mongoose in Halo 3 unlocks the Mongoose Mowdown achievement, if playing on a ranked free-for-all playlist.
