A Medal or Trophy is a reward for your performance in an Arcade League or Challenge scenario. Medals only appear in TimeSplitters 2 and TimeSplitters Future Perfect. In the original TimeSplitters, you either completed the challenge or failed and all awards in Challenges were from completing them.
There are four types of Medals, though only three have in-game visible requirements, depending on how well you did on the particular challenge. Different medals give you different rewards. The usual Bronze, Silver and Gold is the system chosen. Bronze is achieved as a basic completion of the challenge. Silvers, and then Golds, are usually improved times or improved numbers. A Platinum may be awarded for achieving a better time or a better score, however they are invisible to the player and only achieve it if they meet, or do better than the requirements.
Depending on your medal, you get different unlocks. For example, in Can't Handle This, you get Chasm for a bronze, Hatchet Sal and Chasm for a Silver, and a Gold will earn you those two and the Handyman. The Platinum award never gives an extra reward, and are for bragging rights only; you get the same awards as if you got a gold.
In TimeSplitters 2, most rewards are given with a silver. However, in Future Perfect, most rewards are easily obtained with a bronze.

In TimeSplitters 2, there is a glitch in the Playing with Fire challenge. In the challenge, a player's award is calculated by the amount of bananas obtained, however, to achieve a platinum you need to achieve a gold and a better time, not shown to the player. If a player gets 24 bananas but does not beat the time for a Platinum, they get a gold. If they then attempt a platinum, they cannot get it because the system sees 24 as no improvement, thus giving the player a gold
