This event had four medals up for grabs: one as a reward for completion of the tour, and three for donations to a charity drive benefiting The Rainforest Trust.
Clearing any eight missions during the campaign earned the player the Haunted Scrap Canteen medal. In addition, players could donate varying amounts through item or monetary donations to receive donor medals. Donating at least 5 USD to the charity drive earned the player the Carbon Compassion medal, donating at least 15 USD earned the player the Zebra Zirconia medal in addition to the previous medal, and donating at least 25 USD earned the player the Lahsuniya Ratna medal in addition to the previous medals.
The Haunted Scrap Canteen player medal reuses the model for the Rust Starter canteen medal from Operation Canteen Crasher, while the remaining medals reuse models from Operation Madness vs Machines; the Burnished Beryl, Tempered Tourmaline, and Royal Rhodonite, respectively.
All four medals initially drop with unique paint configurations: the Haunted Scrap Canteen drops with a saturated purple color, similar to the Haunted Metal Scrap, and the Carbon Compassion drops with a khaki brown color on RED team, and a dark shade of green on BLU team; all of which are special colors not otherwise available in-game. The Zebra Zirconia medal is painted A Distinctive Lack of Hue on RED team, and An Extraordinary Abundance of Tinge on BLU team, while the Lahsuniya Ratna medal is painted Mann Co. Orange on RED team, and A Distinctive Lack of Hue on BLU team.
