Star Wars Squadrons Medals guide: All requirements detailed

Star Wars Squadrons is out now, and this Medals guide will help you earn each and every one throughout its single-player campaign.

Each medal for each mission is detailed below. You don’t have to earn each and every one in the same runthrough, and some Achievements or Trophies counteract a medal requirement. Keeping that in mind, you may need to play a mission multiple times to earn each medal.

Going for medals will earn you the Mission Accomplished Achievement/Trophy for receiving all medals in a mission, and the Fully Decorated Achievement/Trophy for earning all single-player campaign missions.

With that in mind, mission names and medal objectives are below.
