From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The Sword Spree is a spree medal awarded in Halo 3 and Halo: Reach multiplayer, campaign and Firefight. In Halo: 3 it is awarded for killing five opponents in a row with the Energy Sword without dying. In Halo: Reach the medal does not require kills to be consecutive, just that the player kill five enemies with the Energy Sword without dying.
It is represented by a four-pointed star with an Energy Sword on a blue background in the center.
- Prior to the shutdown of Xbox 360 Halo online services on January 13, 2022, earning this medal on Heretic in Halo 3 would unlock the Blades of Fury achievement.
- This medal was easiest to obtain in the Swords playlist, however it was still a challenge to get 5 kills without dying.
- One easy way to get this medal is to just camp in the blue room on The Pit. Watch the enemies charge into the room or you could watch your radar and catch the enemy by surprise.
- In Halo: Reach Assassinations performed with the Energy Sword do not count toward the sword spree medals.
