In Helldivers 2, earning cosmetics can take time, as you’ll need Medals to purchase many of them in the Warbonds menu to give your bug-hunting expertise some style. There are several resources to keep track of, and one of the most vital of them all is the Medals. They’ll allow you to unlock a wide variety of useful items, such as new weapons, armour, and even Super Credits.

Without further ado, here are all the ways in which you Helldivers can collect this precious resource.

The most consistent method of obtaining Medals is completing missions in the Galactic War. Before selecting the operation, you’ll notice the completion rewards tab gives you a certain number of Medals. While the lower difficulties offer very little, you’ll earn more Medals on the higher difficulties. Though they are no joke, and you’ll need a fully equipped squad to take them on. Remember, you need someone in your squad to extract successfully to obtain the Medals; otherwise, you won’t get any.

Completing Personal Orders is another method to get a large sum of Medals. There are typically two kinds of orders that players can work towards. The first is a community-wide goal where players across the globe work together to complete it. The second is a smaller mission that any player, solo or grouped up, can complete. It’s the Personal Orders that will give you Medals upon completion, and they appear once per day. They are relatively straightforward and will typically take a few mission playthroughs to complete.

You can also come across Medals sporadically within each mission by heading to points of interest. They are the diamond-shaped icons that appear on the mini-map. It’s worth noting that it’s RNG-focused, so the rewards won’t always be the same. You’ll either get heaps of ammo, Samples, heavy weapons, Super Credits, or Medals. You should check these locations out if you can because any extra reward is going to help you on your path to delivering justice to anything that threatens Super Earth.

Helldivers 2 is available on PC and PS5.
