I've been playing Battlefield 1 since it's launch and have yet to win a single medal, or show progress towards any medal.
There are some medals which I should be showing progress on. For example the first checkbox for the "Order of the Iron Star" is "Get 20 kills as Assault". I've made over 200 kills as Assault and the box hasn't been checked.
Looking at the official article on BF1 medals it seems that:
"There are always 5 Medals to choose from, and this quintet of decorations is rotated on a weekly basis."
However I can't see anyway of seeing what 5 medals are available in the Battlefield 1 Companion. Without being able to see which medals are available this week I'm a bit stuck.
There might be in game options but since I tend to join my squad directly into battle from our PSN Party I can't remember seeing anything about active medals, or what I need to do to get them.
To clarify for Battlefield I've always used Battlelog/Companion to manage my loadout/ medals/ upgrades and the game itself for round after round with my online crew. I don't want to waste squad time trying to configure/ manage my soldier.
A Google search gave me lots of conflicting information/ opinions about how medals work.
So how do medals work in Battlefield 1?
