The Bulltrue medal is a Halo 3, Halo: Reach, Halo 4 and Halo 5: Guardians multiplayer medal that is awarded when a player kills another player who is in the act of an Energy Sword attack. The lunge does not have to be directed at the player who makes the kill. The medal is represented by a brown diamond with a silver outline and a bull's head with golden horns in the center. Upon execution, the medal is accompanied with the message, "Bulltrue!"
Obtaining The MedalEdit
In the Halo 3 Beta, the Bulltrue medal was a simple red star, because the Energy Sword wasn't supposed to be found in the Beta's Custom Games and variants. It is easily achieved with dual Maulers or a Shotgun. If lucky, an Assault Rifle, dual-wielded SMG, or Magnums would work, if the enemy dies right as the lunge occurs.
It is actually a very challenging medal to attain, unless playing Grifball or against inexperienced players. This medal is slightly easier to obtain as a Juggernaut, as increased shielding and damage resistance lead to a non-one-hit-kill with the sword. A popular yet difficult way to obtain this medal is to hit the sword user with a sniper headshot at close range. Another way to receive this medal is to play infection variants, such as Living Dead. In some gametypes the zombies have no shield and spawn with swords. If you get this medal on a mythic map, you will be awarded with the achievement ... Get the Horns.
Obtaining The Medal in ReachEdit
In Halo: Reach, this medal also unlocks an avatar award for Emile's helmet.
Obtaining this medal is easiest in Infection as humans are armed with shotguns and enemies must rely solely on the sword.
