All Medals in Splatoon 3

Shiny things come to perfect painters.

The post-match medal system is a small but enjoyable mechanic in Splatoon 3. Sometimes confused with another in-game system that handles achievements like Splatoon 3's Judd Badge, medals are displayed at the end of matches to display contributions by particular players. What the badges designate varies based on weapons, abilities, etc., so here is every medal in Splatoon 3.

Every Splatoon 3 Medal

  • Base Defender - Starting simply, get this medal by splatting your home base's most enemies in a match.
  • Big Bubbler User - The first ability-based medal, simply use the Big Bubbler the most out of all players in a match.
  • Booyah Bomb User - This medal is the same as the previous one for the Booyah Bomb ability.
  • Checkpoint Breaker - Checkpoint Breaker can be achieved by controlling the Rainmaker through the most checkpoints in a match of Rainmaker OR by controlling the tower through the most checkpoints in Tower Control.
  • Clam Carrier - Grabbing the most clams in a game of Clam Blitz will net you this medal.
  • Clam Stopper - This medal is given to those who splatted enemies and made them drop the most clams.
  • Crab Tank User - Another ability medal gained by using the Crab Tank the most in a match.
  • Damage Taker - Either positive or negative, this medal is given to the player who received the most damage in a match.
  • Enemy-Base Splatter - Given to a great offensive player, this medal denotes the player who covered the enemy base in the most ink.
  • Enemy Splatter - Comparable to "most kills" but in a more family-friendly way, this medal is awarded to the player with the most enemy splats.
  • First Splat! - First blood, but for splats!
  • Ground Traveler - For the most mobile Inkling, this medal is given to the player who covered the most ground in a match.
  • Home-Base Inker - The defensive version of Enemy-Base Splatter, this medal is awarded to the player who covered their home base in the most ink.
  • Ink Consumer - It doesn't matter what you're aiming for with this medal. Simply fire off the most ink in a match.
  • Inkjet User - Using the Inkjet the most in a match will leave you this medal.
  • Ink Storm User - Like Inkjet User, but for Ink Storm instead.

  • Ink Vac User - The same as the previous two, but for the Ink Vac special.
  • Killer Wail 5.1 User - The same as the previous three, but for the Killer Wail special.
  • Overall Splatter - Kind of like the Enemy Splatter medal, but this medal counts total splats regardless of the target.
  • Popular Target - Somewhat akin to Damage Taker but more negatively, this medal is given to the player splatted the most times in a match.
  • Rainmaker Carrier - Rather than checkpoint-based, this medal is given to the player who carries the Rainmaker for the longest time in a match.
  • Rainmaker Stopper - Taking down the most enemies holding the Rainmaker will get you this medal.
  • Record-Score Setter - No one knows what this medal is earned from, though by name alone, it would be fair to infer the player with the highest score in the match would get it.
  • Reefslider User - If you use the Reefslider the most in a match, this medal will be your reward.
  • Score Booster - Scoring the most points in Clam Blitz, Rainmaker, or Tower Control will net you this medal.
  • Splat Assister - Gifted to a great teammate, this medal is awarded to the player with the highest number of assists in a match.
  • Splat Zone Guard - Another defensive medal is given to the player with the most splats near the Splat Zone.
  • Splat Zone Hero - The player who uses the most ink on the Splat Zone is awarded this medal.
  • Splat Zone Inker - In Splat Zones, players will be awarded this medal for covering the most ground with ink.
  • Super Jump Spot - Though it is not confirmed, this medal is most likely earned by using the Super Jump the most in a match.
  • Tacticooler User - Using the Tacticooler special the most in a match will give you this medal.
  • Tenta Missiles User - Like the Tacticooler User medal, but for the Tenta Missiles special.
  • Tower Stopper - For immovable objects, this medal is awarded to the player who stopped the Tower the most in Tower Control.
  • Triple Inkstrike User - Use the Triple Inkstrike special the most in a match, and your reward will be this medal.
