The Sniper Kill medal is a multiplayer medal awarded in Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo: Reach and Halo 4. It is obtained by killing an opponent with a headshot using the Sniper rifle (Halo 2, 3, Reach and 4) or Beam Rifle (Halo 2,3 and 4 only) in Halo 3 Matchmaking or Multiplayer, while a plain kill with either weapon will get you the medal in Halo 2 and the Halo 3 Beta.


  • After you kill an opponent with a sniper weapon, a message appears on your screen that says: "You sniped (player)." This does not happen in Halo 4.
  • It is available in all Multiplayer gametypes where a sniper weapon is available and it is also possible to get this medal in the Halo 3 campaign, with either of the sniper weapons, Battle Rifle or Carbine and the M6G Pistol. Bungie difficulty rating of 1 out of 10. It is represented by a six-pointed star with crosshairs.
