Death from the Grave is a multiplayer medal awarded in Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, Halo 4 (as Kill from the Grave) and Halo 5: Guardians (as From the Grave) for killing an opponent after the player has died. The medal is not awarded immediately after the player has died; there is a brief waiting time between the player's death and the death of the opponent the player killed.
It is represented by a platinum eight-pointed star with a face without a mouth in the center of the star. This would usually occur from a grenade (most commonly Plasma Grenades) or Needler rounds detonating after the recipients death, or a slow moving projectile such as a rocket making contact with a foe once the being who has shot the rocket is defeated. As this medal is awarded, a message appears on the screen, saying "You killed (player) from the grave".
- In Halo 3 Beta, the medal was much more responsive, appearing more often almost immediately after the player died, as opposed to a set time limit.
- On the Halo 3 map Orbital, if a player scores two "Death from the Grave" medals in a single online match, one will get the Post Mortem achievement.
- In the Halo: Reach Noble map pack, if a player scores a Double Kill from the Grave in an online match, one will get the Totally Worth It achievement. This is considered to be among the most difficult of the Noble map pack achievements.
