We don't know.

We're still trying to find out. That's why it's not on the wiki.

I got one of the hidden medals (no not the Arena one).

There's probably another medal for a fist only game.

Yesterday I got the UAC Star (Gold Cluster) but I didn't reach the end. So you're not required to win the game to get that one.

The UAC star may well be awarded for the number of enemies killed. When I *ahem* accidentally set off the Trigun's nuke, I killed everything up to that point - I died well before Cybie, but I got the UAC Star, bronze cluster. So it might be for 100% kills on a certain difficulty.

The Hell Champion medal would obviously be awarded for winning in the arena...

But if we do take the UAC star to mean 100% kills... Hm, my first win netted me, as well as the star, an Aurora and Prejudice medal. Theory: Prejudice for killing the Cyberdemon, while Aurora for using a BFG to do it? Or something relating to the BFG, perhaps...

This bears further investigation, I believe.

Now that I think about it, in the run I got the UAC Star Gold medal, there was one room with two pain elementals. I was invulnerable at the time and switched to the chainsaw, and then they spew an incredible amount of lost souls, enough to fill up the whole room (my mortem shows that I killed 2 pain elementals and 115 lost souls). At that point I fired the BFG and all of them were killed. So it's probably related to the number of kills in a single shot.

For the record, that was on ITYTD and my kill percentage at the end of the run was 97% (death in the spider's lair).

Aurora - nope, not BFG kill that for sure. Got two or three of them, but no BFG cybie kills recently. Perhaps it's for nuking a level?

UAC star - not 100% kills, got it plenty of times without it. Probably not "kills number" as I have at least one mortem with 400+ kills and without any UAC stars. I'd guess it's for having a set number of 100% cleared levels (like in the original suggestion) but the color depends on difficulty, but that's just a wild guess.

Prejudice - thats the only one I'm sure of - it's a YAAM medal :P

Aurora - I got mine without using any nukes, so that option's out, I'm afraid. Number of uniques found, perhaps?

Hm, I don't think so: I nuked 2 levels in a FullWin-run (M|95%) and all I came up with were

UAC Star (bronze cluster)
Grim Reaper's Badge
Hell Champion Medal

so no speacial medal for JC.


I guess the Aurora-Medallion is related to the number of uniques (on normal levels?) in a run, maybe if you find 4+?

But no idea about the UAC-Stars, tend to believe that's number of enemies killed in a single shot/certain amount of time. Nuking does not count as it's not a weapon (but an item)...

And still wandering about the Explorers badge: Maybe seeing all items in a run? Venturing through all possible extra-levels?

In my AoSg win I got the Aurora Medal, and I indeed found 4 uniques in that run. But in my Ao100 game I found 12 uniques and didn't get it.

Exploring all levels entirely? Makes sense.

I got both the Aurora Medal and one called Gambler's Shield on this AoSH game... Four uniques here as well, making me think that Aurora Medal is indeed for getting four or more uniques (in which case it would make sense for Ao100 players to be exempt from getting the medal, unless you can only get it if you find exactly four uniques and no more)... The death in lava pits with three enviropacks in my inventory is due to stupidass operator error on my part, making this mortem the very epitome of "Yet Another Stupid Death"...

Indeed it does. And Conquerer is the same thing, while 100% killing everything in them. Or so Aki has told me. :P

Explorer and Conquerer have been confirmed by Kornel.

Gambler's shield is for pulling X amount of levers, i'm also sure.

All of them:

Medal of Prejudice: 100% kills
UAC Star: Get lots of kills. You can't get gold without playing N! or Ao100.
Minor Icarus Cross: Win fast, it seems to imply. I know Kornel has a very strict idea of what "Fast" is (Most timed challenges are ludicrously difficult) so I don't have the major cross.
Gambler's Shield: Pull A LOT OF LEVERS. Seriously, you need to pull almost every one that spawns.
Aurora Medallion: Get lots of uniques. 3 or more, I believe.
Explorer/Conqueror: Win a game visiting/clearing all red stairs.
Compet-n Silver Cross: Get lots of level clears (You feel relatively safe). Gold and platinum are impossible on non-Ao100.

While checking my mortem due to this topic I saw I have a mortem with 400 kilss and no UAC star. Yet there are ones with ~200 kills and a star. So this one probably isn't true.

Again probably not - I got this one once and it was in a run that had only 57% kills so not many cleared levels (especially seeing as on other runs I usually go for YAAM).

Agreed. Seeing as a YAAM would meet the reqs. Thomas put up, you would get it for, say... an AoSg UV YAAM. Which I didn't. So, it's something else.

Using the BFG in a small group of enemies in another game gave me the UAC Star bronze. I'm suspecting that it may be indeed related to the number of enemies killed in a single shot.

You guys should check if you get that medal when you use a BFG in a group of enemies.

Well on my succesfull nightmare run at AoMC, I spammed up BFG9000 quite a lot in giant groups of enemies, such as loads of anachnotrons, revenant % vile packs and in pain elemental caverns when things got heated up.

I ended up with UAC Gold star so I think the one shot = lots of dead enemies might just be it, I also suspect it might be triggered on the "quality" of the enemies, tougher the better.

Compet-n Medals are for speedruns (real time). I'm not sure about the times but they're 30/20/10 min or less. Not that hard to win.
