The True King
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The True King is an achievement in Halo: The Master Chief Collection. It is unlocked by earning a total of 250 King of the Hill mode-specific medals in multiplayer matchmaking. The achievement is worth 10 Gamerscore.
Certain games in the collection are better for earning this achievement than others, as not all games award the same number of King of the Hill medals. Halo 4 has the most with fourteen unique medals, followed closely by Halo 2: Anniversary with twelve. Halo 2 only awards seven medals, Halo: Combat Evolved only six medals, Halo 3 only five, while Halo: Reach only awards a single medal, Hail to the King.
From launch until the April 2022 update, Halo 3 only awarded one medal, as with Reach. Following the update, four additional medals can be earned in Halo 3.
Medals added with the April 2022 update are marked with ¹ in the table below.
The medals contributing to the progress of this achievement and attainable in each game are as follows:
|Over the Hill||No||No||Yes||No||Yes||No|
|Hail to the King||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
- Although the in-game Medal Chest states the medal is not awarded in Halo 2, it actually can be earned.
