From Halopedia, the Halo wiki


Wheelman is a Halo 3, Halo Reach, Halo 4, Halo 5: Guardians and Halo Infinite multiplayer, Firefight and Spartan Ops medal awarded when the player, as the driver of a vehicle, has one of their passengers kill an opponent. In the first two games it is represented by a gold star with a tire on it. Writing on the tire reads 'ROAD KILL TIRES'. In Halo 4 it is represented by a white skull with a steering wheel on the forehead atop a blue circle and grey pentagon. In Halo 5: Guardians the skull and steering wheel are black inside of a yellow roadsign.

In Halo Infinite, the player must get ten assists in a match to gain the medal.

Usually, it is accompanied by the message, "Your driving assisted <player>."


The medal can be achieved easily with any map that has a Warthog, especially in a Big Team Battle match.

Keep moving. If you stop a Warthog, Mongoose, Prowler, etc. it is a sitting duck, and can be easily stuck or hijacked.

When playing a slayer game only have a driver and a gunner. Having a passenger most likely will give the other team a Triple Kill. Only have a passenger if it is an Assault, Oddball or Capture the Flag game.


  • The original design of the medal is very similar to the Wheelman Spree medals. This design was originally used to represent the Halo 2 Roadkill medal.
  • It is in fact possible to get a Wheelman medal after someone sticks a player and then boards in a vehicle. Less common is filling someone up with needles or spikes and then getting in, as the time for the projectiles to explode is minimal.
