A Service Tag is a tag meant to identify players quickly during a match. They consist of one letter and two numbers in Halo 3 and an arbitrary combination of 4 letters or numbers in Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach, and Halo 4. In team games, they appear above a player's head with a marker indicating their position, even through walls. When the player's reticle is pointed directly at the player, the full Gamertag is displayed instead.

It is beneficial for a player to set his service tag to be identical to his Gamertag so his teammates can more easily identify him.
