ive been having a bit of bother with a couple of the assignments, so thought i might creat a thread so everyone can post which ones they are having difficulty with and give hints and tips on things that helped them achieve the assignments

 

  • set us the bomb (teir 2 assault assignment)

15 hand grenade kills

 

i dont use grenades too often so found this a bit hard to get, what i found helped was, if you set an ammo box down and just keep chucking grenades at a choke point that the enemy will have to pass through to get to the objective.

 

a great one for this is grand bazar on rush.

 

i got quite a few by waiting by the rush objective until someone start planting and throw a grenade at them, usually cathes them off guard.

 

  • my own terminator

get a kill with an EOD bot

 

this is proving very difficult, the EOD bot is far to easily destroyed :(

play hardcore for EOD bot kill as its quicker to get the kill, capture a flag and wait for someone to try and re-capture worked for me.

EOD bot kill was easy which I got on Siene Crossing while attacking in Rush. Just sneaked up on an unsuspecting sniper while they was defending and his biscuits were burning :D Any map will do though. Only took 4 or 5 attempts and the hardest part is controlling the damn thing!

 

Most of them come naturally. Though the one I doubt I'll ever see is the one for that stupid gun game because if like me you're average at best then you've no chance. In all the games I've played I've don't no better then level 7 (Spas I believe). Most games I'm still on a hand gun (hate the 93r & Magnum!) by the time it ends!

 

It sucks having an assignment based on skill but there you go :(

You don't use grenades much? Weird!!!!!!!!

 

EOD bot can be a *****, it's awkward enough just to drive the bastid. I was luckly to melt the face of someone that had just be revived. Try hardcore though. If you see a sniper hiding somewhere try & get him. It's more luck than anything, everything else is a mixture of skill & just playing the game loads.

Rush is better because everyone is distracted by the same objectives. Then all you need is a map that you can sneak about on and behind the opposition.The cars and other debris were perfect for sitting behind and hiding waiting for the right time.

But after we moved up from the second set of M-coms (the one on the bridge and the one in the barge) everyone moved up and I was near the bridge above the barge/M-com when I see a sneaky sniper running away to hide on us spawning at our base so I followed him, he turned and nearly ran into me but luckily never saw me and he stood at the bridge aiming towards our base so I let him have it.

Just be as sneaky as possible and stalk snipers is your best bet.

If you're struggling to get top 5 in Gun Master,  i'd recommend finding an almost empty game.  

 

If there's only 5 or 6 players in the room you've a great chance of being in the top 5,  and even if it fills up later you'll have a good head start,  so you'll probably be on machine guns when new guys are spawning in with pistols.

I got my EOD bot kill last night on nosehair canals (i know that not how its spelt :P)

 

while my squad had an enemy squad under suppression on the ramp up out of the water (front, middle of map). When they tried to hide under the side edge of the ramp that my squad was on (with me on the oposite side to the ramp, i dropped my EOD bot and ran over and killed on of them that had their back to me

 

as for grenades, i dont really use them too often with an aim of killing, ore for suppressive effect, i would much prefer concussive of flashbangs than frags. but the frags are useless enough to basically be used as concussive

Ive fount that for the most part, the new CQ maps are the best for getting the assignments done quickly.

 

The A + B flags on Ziba Tower are usually quite good for getting grenade kills. Also the C flag on Donya Fortress. 

 

I thought I was gonna struggle with the EOD bot kill,but I managed to get it on Scrap Metal fairly easily. I hid in the dark warehouse near B. Managed to kill someone trying to take the flag. It took a couple of tries but theres always someone who doesnt spot it!

Might sound obvious but if you're going for the grenade kills, make sure to put the grenade specialisation on!

LOL I think flying a plane or helicopter is easier :D

 

 

Well considering I only got premium on Saturday, but never really started playing properly until Monday. I've only 2 weapon specific assignments left (Bullet Point & Hold the Trigger), and 3 dog tags (4 including the Jack of all Trades) assignments which I'm not entirely fused about anyway. They will unlock naturally over time.

 

They've been quite fun to do.

 

I'll have to be in the right mood and frame of mind for the 50 kills with Sniper Rifles as I cant just sit back and still end up running in for objectives wielding a great sniper rifle :D

 

I'm 14 kills into 100 kills with Sub Machine Guns. Then its the Finish top 5 in Gun Master which is what I doubt I'll ever get at my skill level :(

I'd recommend the SKS for the sniper rifle assignment for anyone who hates sniping. It's a beast for close to medium range combat with the iron site or holo/kobra. I don't think I'll ever get the assignment for kills with the L96 I hate sniping that much. 

 

Managed to get 4th in my second attempt at Gun Master. Only problem being I haven't unlocked that particular assignment yet.:smileysad:

Oh I don't mind sniping, but I have to be in the right frame of mind for it, usually I end up getting stuck in and not playing the role properly :)

 

Yeah tell me about the SKS :( I was getting owned on the new Close Quarters maps the other day by a guy sniping with an SKS and beating me every time :Shame:

 i found that its alot easier to control in 3rd person view, just click R3 (or whaever u have the vehcile view button assigned as)

 

the problem being with internam view you seem to be lookin where the repair tool arm is pointing with no indication of what way the body of the bot is pointing

 

Yeah that's first thing I did. But it still doesn't help the fact that if you run into some debris, or a kerb, or hits something it flips about wildly like a bunking bronco and you always end up pointing in the wrong direction :(

 

I expect it to have an engine brake like a tank with it being tracked instead of it coasting into objects . But once you get used to it (which can take a while) its not too bad to control if you take your time.

The EOD bot is a mess. I was playing with SilentShadow & my friend last night. My friend drove into me by mistake with the EOD bot & I just skidded across the map as if I was Ice Skating. That bot is still glitchy as hell. I find I skid & bounce everywhere when driving it, it's as if your driving a hovercraft.

 

Couldn't stop laughing when I my friend got his EOD bot kill, but in the next match he said it didn't even count as he hadn't unlocked the assignment yet haha.
