Battlefield 1’s Multiplayer Medals Work Very Differently

DICE has decided to go in a different direction with the multiplayer medals of Battlefield 1. The hope this time around is that players will become more specialized to earn the medals they want this time around.

The biggest difference this time around is that medals are not constantly being earned. Now, players have to select a medal from a list of five randomly selected medals. Players will not make progress on a medal they do not have active. The hope is that this will encourage players to try out new and different strategies in order to earn the medal they are currently working towards. This should make the medals feel much more like unique and rewarding goals the player has rather than just a random list of tasks.

While a medal can be switched out after a match, you an only have one activated at a time. The list of medals are rotated on a weekly basis. There are 34 medals total that offer a nice experience boost once completed and each medal can be completed 100 times.

Battlefield 1 is set to launch October 21st for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
