In Overwatch, a player can be issued medals for peak performance in 4 categories; Eliminations, Damage, Healing, and Objective Time, and Objective Kills. Bronze, Silver, and Gold medals are awarded for 3rd, 2nd, and 1st in that category, respectively.

How is EXP gain calculated from these medals? What are the specific EXP numbers gained from the different categories of medals? Will multiple Gold medals stack their EXP? Can EXP from multiple categories of medals stack, or is only the highest achieved counted?

All this time playing the game, and I still don't know how medals work...

    @DanmakuGrazer No, it isn't. I've read through the entire post, and I don't see anywhere that my specific requests were asked or answered. Oct 13, 2016 at 13:10

    "how much experience do they reward?". If the answer doesn't exhaustively explain that, it needs to be edited. There's no need for this question. Oct 13, 2016 at 13:53

    @Kaizerwolf It's my understanding that the comments aren't part of the answer for voting purposes. That doesn't mean the information isn't there for you to read, especially when it has multiple upvotes. The question does specifically ask for this information: "how much experience do they reward?". And yes, that is great that the answer was edited to be clearer.

    @Kaizerwolf Just editing the answer was enough. It was solving both "problems". And just wait until the question is peer reviewed if you want to edit it. No need to stress about it...

The experience granted for medals only counts the highest quality medal received, and is applied only once no matter how many medal received. For example: if a player has two gold medals and one silver medal, only 150 XP is received for one gold medal.

  • Gold Medal: 150 XP
  • Silver Medal: 100 XP
  • Bronze Medal: 50 XP
