assignments - hints and tips

[ Edited ]
26 Replies 363 Views edited 14-06-2012

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 :smileysad:

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 :smileyvery-happy: 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 :smileysad:

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.

Re: assignments - hints and tips

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.

Re: assignments - hints and tips

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.

Re: assignments - hints and tips

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!

Re: assignments - hints and tips

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

Re: assignments - hints and tips

Sorry about this silly question as I have never used the eod bot before but does it come with a gun attached to it, but if it doesn't how to do you kill people with it :Stupid:
