At the end of the game, how are medals awarded?

As a secondary, what is the relation between bronze silver and gold medals, and how much experience do they reward?

The medals are just for the first, second, and third place for each category (Eliminations, Objective Kills, Objective Time, Damage Done, and Healing Done) other than Deaths on your team. The bonus XP is 50 for a bronze medal, 100 for a silver medal, and 150 for a gold medal. Note that you can only receive a single bonus, matching your most valuable medal.

  • What are the categories?

    @SaintWacko So just to be sure, you're saying that if you did the second most damage on your team, you'd receive the silver medal for that category?

  • Oh, wow. That's not what I assumed at all. Figured there were preset thresholds. Cool.

    Worth adding that the rewards are not cumulative, you get whichever is highest. For example, if you get three gold medals, you get 150 exp, not 450.

Medals are based off how well you are doing compared to your average stats on a map and objective and are adjusted to the time the answer that it is first second and third place is false becuase muilple can get a gold medal in a match without tying in those stats with other best player becuase your whole team can get gold medals for eliminations and objective times

    Welcome to Arqade, but I'm pretty sure this is wrong. Any time I've talked to my teammates about medals, it's been entirely consistent with the accepted answer, including needing to tie to both get gold. If you're certain this is correct, you'll need to provide enough evidence to convince us that the other answer is wrong. In the meantime, expect downvotes.

As @SaintWacko has stated, the Overwatch player statistics for medals are equations that function. See below for equations:

( elim + objk + objt + dd + hd )

  • Eliminations +
  • Objective Kills +
  • Objective Time +
  • Damage Done +
  • Healing Done

    Each category is awarded a medal separately, I'm not sure what you're trying to say here. Commented Sep 25, 2016 at 17:04
  • to which cat are you speaking of? I was giving a visual to what SaintWacko has answered which is the correct answer. If you want to talk categories, then we can say many of things, but we are talking at end game and medals. Not overall or whatever your trying to get at.

    As I said, I have no idea what you're trying to say. You might want to reword your answer because it's unintelligible as it is. Not just that, this seems completely unrelated to the other answer. Commented Sep 25, 2016 at 17:14
  • I also have no idea what you're talking about. What/where is that image from?
