ABOUT THIS FAQ

==============================================================================

This FAQ details the MEDALS on Valkyria Chronciles. These medals are awarded
after fulfilling certain requirements, and are received from Cordelia after
Chapter 9 when the requirements are met.

The FAQ will give the name, and the requirements needed to obtain them. It is
very much like an achievement guide.

There are 20 total!

THE MEDALS [TMD]

==============================================================================

Below are the various medals listed in order. To quick find them, refer to the
table of contents above and find the corresponding number. The format will
be as follows:

[***] (Number)

MEDAL NAME

-Requirements
Tips: (If any)

Once the requirements are met, receive the medal from Cordelia while in base.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[001]

GALLIAN MEDAL OF HONOR

-Simply finish Chapter 9 in the main story.

[002]

FOUZEN SERVICE MEDAL

-Simply finish Chapter 10 in the main story.

[003]

NAGGIAR SERVICE MEDAL

-Simply finish Chapter 14 in the main story.

[004]

GHIRLANDIO SERVICE MEDAL

-Simply finish Chapter 15 in the main story.

[005]

SAVIOR OF GALLIA

-Complete the game, and begin a New Game Plus file.

Tips: "New Game Plus" refers to "Clear" data, which indicates you have beaten
      the game at least once, and re-play with all stats, weapons, and
      characters, the same.

[006]

THE LANCE OF GALLIA

-Kill at least one enemy ace

Tips: "Enemy Aces" are the enemies who appear on some chapters who have a
      name and title, rather than being referred to as simply a "Scout" or
      other class. Example: "Ty the Imomortal" is an Enemy Ace.

[007]

THE BRONZE ARMS OF GALLIA

-Kill 250 enemy units

Tips: This is usually unlocked if you have been playing every chapter, and
      playing Skirmishes as they were unlocked. If not, keep playing
      Skirmishes and replaying chapters, and this will unlock.

[008]

THE SILVER ARMS OF GALLIA

-Kill 500 enemy units

Tips: The same as above, play Skirmishes and replay chapters if this one had
      not unlocked upon beating the game.

[009]

THE GOLDEN ARMS OF GALLIA

-Kill 1000 enemy units

Tips: If you tackle the Skirmishes, as well as Hard Mode, and aim to get the
      highest rank in each chapter, this will unlock as you progress through
      that. If not, keep replaying chapters and focusing on kills rather than
      completion.

[010]

THE SPLINTERED HORN

-Let a unit who has unlocked their hidden Potential fall in combat

Tips: An easy way to do this is to use the command, "Unlock Hidden Potential"
      After it is successful, send the selected unit in the middle of enemy
      units, and stand there, making sure you do not end your turn, and they
      will eventually fall, unlocking this medal.

[011]

THE CRIMSON HEART

-Save a fallen soldier

Tips: This medal is granted when you rescue a fallen soldier with a medic. You
      can also clear a mission before the unit remains dead.

[012]

ORDER OF THE GOLDEN WINGS

-Max out the Levels of Character Classes

Tips: You will need a lot of experience, but as you progress through the story
      and handle the skirmishes that unlock on your way there with good
      grades, then this should be easy to unlock. After all classes have been
      trained to the maximum, this medal should unlock.

[013]

THE WINGS OF SOLIDARITY

-Complete the Personnel Profiles

Tips: To complete the Profiles, you have to make sure every character has
      been unlocked, and that you have gotten their hidden potentials. Do
      this by using every one until each reaches their hidden potential at
      least once.

[014]

EXCELLENCE IN LEADERSHIP

-Learn every single order

Tips: This is self explanatory, learn them from the Gentlement in the
      graveyard as you progress. He will tell you there is no more he can
      teach you, indicating you have completed the list.

[015]

EXCELLENCE IN ARMAMENT

-Fully upgrade every weapon, collect all enemy weapons, and Royal Weapons

Tips: Upgrading every weapon can be done at base. It will cost a lot of money,
      but like experience, good grades on skirmishes/chapters should make this
      relatively easy. "Enemy Weapons" refers specifically to the weapons held
      by "Enemy Aces", that is, Enemies who have a title and a name ("Ty the
      Immortal", for instance.) Royal Weapons are handed out by Cordelia on
      completion of levels. Refer to a weapons list to get details on what
      you may have and may not have. After all have been accounted for, this
      medal should unlock.

      For easy money, some Skirmishes can be completed in the first turn,
      it may require a bit of practice, but using Scouts (fully upgraded,
      easier in post-game/new game +), it can be done. The earlier skirmishes'
      normal modes' enemies are almost useless against Scouts, even tanks
      can be destroyed in one or two turns from a Scout (depending on the
      weapon used). The point is to rush the enemy HQ flag as quick as
      possible, the less turns spent getting there, the higher the rank, and
      income/rewards. It may be more difficult to do on later Skirmish maps,
      and while the first turn is preferrable, it does not have to be the
      first, but just as quick as possible.

      Be sure to bring all units who give Command Points, as this will boost
      your amount of moves that can be done per turn. I may update this in
      the future to give a quick 1-turn guide on some maps, if it is wanted.

[016]

EXCELLENCE IN TECHNOLOGY

-Fully upgrade both tanks (Edelweiss and Shamrock); as well as collecting
 enemy pieces

Tips: The Edelweiss has three different upgrades near the end, and you have to
      be sure to purchase each one. You basically have to make sure you have
      bought everything at least once.

[017]

GALLIAN FRONT COMMEMORATIVE

-Complete every chapter and report

Tips: This is a completion medal. By "Complete" it means beat at least once,
      regardless of the grade or casualties.

[018]

ORDER OF THE HOLY SHIELD

-Complete any chapter after Chapter 10 without any unit falling (HP running 
 out)

Tips: Find a level after Chapter 10 that you feel comfortable with, that you
      know your own won't fall too easily. You can take your time completing
      the level (if there is no limitation within the mission itself), and
      not worry about the grade. When you complete the level without a unit
      falling, then you unlock this one.

[019]

ORDER OF THE HOLY LANCE

-Obtain an A ranking (highest) in any level after Chapter 10

Tips: You get this medal for just beating one mission with an "A" rank. It is
      not a requirement to get it on every level. Find a level you think you
      can "A" rank (the lower the turns, the better.) Focus on rushing to
      finish each objective, as it does not count how many fell in battle,
      but just the time it took you to beat the level itself.

[020]

RANDGRIZ CREST OF HONOR

-Obtain an A ranking on every chapter, skirmish (every difficulty), and
 report

Tips: An ultimate completion medal, it is exactly how it says. Complete all
      the levels in the fewest amount of turns possible. Refer to the "A"/"S"
      rank guide for specific help on this.
