This event had three medals which were able to be earned by players: two as a reward for completion of the tour, and one for a donation to a charity drive benefiting the ALS Association. Clearing six intermediate or expert difficulty missions earned the player the Verdant Vexatious Vivianite of Vanity medal, and clearing eight advanced or expert difficulty missions earned the player the Volcanic Vesuvianite of Valor medal.
Content creators whose missions were accepted for use in the event were awarded the Auspicious Automaton Assembler's Accolade medal.
The Verdant Vexatious Vivianite of Vanity and Volcanic Vesuvianite of Valor player medals reuse the models for the Tempered Tourmaline and Chaotic Crystal, respectively, returning from Operation Madness vs Machines. The Virtual Vascular Vitality donor medal reuses the model for the Boundless Heart, also from Madness vs Machines.
Two of the three medals initially drop with custom painted colors which are not otherwise available in-game: the Verdant Vexatious Vivianite of Vanity drops with a dark jade green color, and the Volcanic Vesuvianite of Valor drops with a bright yellow color.
