Road Map:

1. Campaign on Hard (20 for 470G)
Playing through the campaign on Hard (first playthough) can net you 20 achievements for 470G. Should you miss any story related achievements, you can use "Chapter Select" and play it on a lower difficulty if need be. None are overly difficult and there are no collectibles to search for.

There are 6 secret achievements which are all story related and can't be missed in a completed playthrough. The rest of the achievements (listed below), are in order of level progression and can be missed in your initial run.


**Important** Do not play a level on hard and then replay it on a lower difficulty. It has been reported to screw up save files. So if playing through on hard, just finish the campaign; once that is done you can utilize "Level Select" to obtain anything you missed.

Not on my watch (Operation Swordbreaker)
Roadkill (Uprising)
Involuntary Euthanasia (Uprising)
You can be my wingman anytime (Going Hunting)
The Professional (Comrades)
Scrap Metal (Thunder Run)
Army of Darkness (Night Shift)
Twofor (Night Shift)
What the hell *are* you? (Rock and a hard place)
Butterfly (Rock and a hard place)
Practice makes perfect (Kaffarov)
Between a rock and a hard place (The Great Destroyer)

2. Co-op Achievements (9 for 230G)
Co-op in Battlefield 3 is accessible only through Xbox LIVE (no split-screen/system link) and is a 2-player mode. Get a friend or search for one in the Achievement Trading/Co-op thread, or just search for public matches. Complete all the co-op missions on Hard while obtaining mission specific achievements. It is recommended however to get all the co-op level specific achievements on "Easy".

3. Online (9 for 300G)
Battlefield 3 has an excellent online (at least since the servers have been stabalized) There are multiple game types to choose from and you can go lone wolf, or join a squad and play as a team. There are numerous large, sprawling maps to choose from with all sorts of vehicles to crash and burn. A majority of your time spent on this game will be in online multiplayer mode.

Campaign:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/3M...MQd1sXknOQ69tw
Not on my watch - 25 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/zS...vinc9svqtvNEp4
Protect Chaffin from the soldiers in the street in Operation Swordbreaker

During the mission "Operation Swordbreaker", after you take out the sniper with the AT, you will move across the roof of the building to cover Chaffin's extraction. Use your sniper rifle and take out the enemies that appear on the left side of the street and on a roof. Once the team is across the street and out of sight, a bunch of enemies will begin running down the street towards your position. Keep killing them and then the achievement will pop. Some people are having issues with this: just keep shooting enemies after the friendly squad has left the street.




https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/89...2XiLiJO488DDt8
Roadkill - 20 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/Z6...GEn_3bivreO1tg
Kick the car to kill the soldiers in Uprising

During the mission "Uprising", after reaching the checkpoint with the ammo dump, you will notice you are on a destroyed section of the road that has formed a ledge with multiple enemies underneath. Find the car that is close to the edge off to the right, walk up to it and press https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/0_...Lvk1kNq9hLrsaw. Do not begin shooting first and then kick the car over, as this will cause the enemies to move. So kick the car first!



https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/Hi...CzHa39OmuV4sO0
Involuntary Euthanasia - 25 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/iK...AAhTalHoXi8EdM
Kill the 2 soldiers before the building falls on them in Uprising

During the mission "Uprising", you will come across a bus where you will get ambushed. Dispatch of the enemies here and come out the other side of the bus. As you step forward, the building in front of you on your left will become unstable and start to collapse. Quickly shoot the 2 enemies standing underneath (sometimes only 1 will be there) before the building crushes them.
Alternate method: Throw a grenade from the bus to kill the 2 guys. I personally used this method (2nd video) just stay in the bus and toss a grenade straight out the door. If you miss, toss another, as long as you don't leave the bus, you won't trigger the animation of the building to fall.




https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/Dh...sDvff2idyLrHCA
You can be my wingman anytime - 30 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/i0...e1x0FglBH8Jk3E
Complete Going Hunting in a perfect run

In the mission "Going Hunting", you co-pilot a fighter jet. You will engage in dogfighting with multiple enemy jets. To get this achievement, you have to shoot down all 7 enemy jets with 1 missile each, while dodging all enemy missiles with your flares. Restarting a checkpoint will not gain you this achievement. So if you mess up you have to restart the level from scratch, which sucks since you can't skip any of the scenes with the take off.
Alternative method: use the jet machineguns only.

Here's a text version:
• Jet 1: Two flares for dodge, enemy moves forward, wait for it to drop two flares then fire missile.
• Jet 2: Jet will be coming straight at you in opposite direction, shoot it quickly
• Jet 3: Trails behind your AI teammate. Shoot it when they both come into sight
• Jet 4: Comes at you from opposite direction. Wait until it flies by, then go defensive and drop one flare, then it will move to the left side; wait for it to drop flares then fire.
• Jet 5: Shoot when it comes into view, doesn't seem to drop flares.
• Jet 6+7: When you go defensive, drop flares for the three attacks, jet 6 will move up to your right. It will drop its flares, then attack. Jet 7 will then pull up to the left. Wait for it to drop two flares, and then fire it to destroy.

I personally used this video:


https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/xI...CzXGmDBSFXDrm0
The Professional - 30 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Complete the street chase in Comrades in under 2 minutes 30 seconds without dying

In the mission "Comrades" when you chase down the nuke carrier, the chase starts from when you run into the police crossfire. Quickly advance up the side of the street, taking out the police reinforcements ASAP. The chase ends when the nuke carrier fires the RPG out of the tunnel, and your achievement will unlock if you completed in time. Honestly this is not hard to do, just follow the video and you'll get it (best done on easy). I managed to do it on hard without much trouble.




Xenolith666 11-10-2011 09:07 PM

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/0t...S0mVc0pe55erpQScrap Metal - 25 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/ft...jeDuISgR7ZVxRM
Destroy 6 enemy tanks before reaching the fort in Thunder Run

At the start of the mission "Thunder Run", there are a total of 8 enemy tanks you will encounter before reaching the fort. Destroy 6 of these yourself to unlock the achievement. This is surprisingly easy, even on hard mode, the enemy tanks are destroyed in 1 shot. So just blast away at the enemy tanks, make sure you lead them a little bit since they are moving at full speed and crossing in front of you.



https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/kB...lpcGiw6DjwpNOY
Army of Darkness - 30 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/gw...jpgSIjL7uFlmlI
Shoot out the 4 lights with 4 bullets in Night Shift

At the start of the mission "Night Shift", you will be instructed to shoot out the street lights illuminating the parking lot across from your position. Zoom in with https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/CM...fRe-R0crmYup-8and carefully shoot the 4 lights in 4 consecutive shots. Press https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/lF...UeziJkdjkgtjBI down to hold your breath for a steadier aim. You must take 'bullet drop' into account when sniping, so aim a little higher than normal, don't just aim straight at the light. This is the start of the mission, so just reload the mission if you miss.



https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/_f...FqFwgt9KEOGUyw
Twofor - 15 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Take down 2 enemies with 1 bullet in Night Shift

During the mission "Night Shift", you will come across a section where you cover fellow marines to cross the street from the rooftops. Your partner will point out to you two enemies standing in alignment to your position, so take out your sniper rifle, line them up and shoot to unlock. This is practically a gimme.


https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/2Y...skQrCZyfbyKd58
What the hell *are* you? - 20 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/Lw...mSKTSuhn16uros
Take a russian Dog Tag in the forest ambush in Rock And A Hard Place

At the start of the mission "Rock and a Hard Place", you will be ambushed by Russians in the forest. Flank up the side and knife one of them to obtain their dog tag and this achievement.

Only a knife from behind will trigger the dogtag animation. If you try knifing in their face you will just swipe at the guy with your knife.This achievement is best attained on "Easy" mode!





https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/uT...LZ0AqFt_dcK7BI
Butterfly - 25 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Take down the jet in one attempt in Rock And A Hard Place

At the end of the mission "Rock and a Hard Place", you will enter a conflict on the ground with a fighter jet. After safely moving up with your squad in cover and recovering the javelin, take aim and shoot it down with one shot.

This has to be done in one go from when the jet appears while your squad is regrouped. If you get killed, or reload the checkpoint you will negate this achievement. Best done on easy, try not to die and follow the video guide.


https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/Sv...sHRMpBcssBtVhc
Practice makes perfect - 15 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/GQ...7SpArU2ggxVwp8
Headshot each of the targets in the gun range in Kaffarov

After passing the gun storage room in the Villa and dispatching a room full of soldiers underground, you will be instructed to take an alternate route. In this room, targets will pop up as you approach. There are 13 targets to hit in total. Try to kill enemies before you enter the next room, once you enter the room the targets will pop up. Most of the enemies have laser sights and will come around corners and blind you. If you screw up, just die and try again.




https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/ib...JjDwEGRlXjPlIs
Between a rock and a hard place - 15 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Beat Solomon, flawlessly, in The Great Destroyer

At the end of the mission "The Great Destroyer", you will get into a quicktime event with Solomon after flipping his car. You must simply hit all the button commands as they pop up (and not miss any), and this achievement will unlock at the end of the fight.

Complete the campaign story

See "Semper Fidelis" for more information.


https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/s8...kvNAoOOsgBzPGg
Semper Fidelis - 50 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Complete the campaign story on Hard

Complete all the missions on Hard difficulty. Playing on hard, enemies seem to develop a 6th sense and they will notice you and lay lots of supressing fire. Take advantage of cover and prone, peek out to kill 1-2 enemies at a time and then shrink back into cover. It is also very easy to get killed (usually in 1-2 shots if relatively close), so if you start getting hit, quickly find cover.

Also, take advantage of any flanking routes/walls and abuse them if you want to get by missions quicker. This is similar to Call of Duty where you kind of have to force your squadmates through the mission. They are also invincible, so use that to your advantage.


Co-op:
Here's a link to a bunch of youtube videos on the co-op achievements provided by Llamasmasher: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...18&postcount=1

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP-HqLs=.jpgCar Lover - 20 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Complete the mission without losing a humvee in Operation Exodus

In the co-op mission "Operation Exodus", you get a line of Hummers to help you defend each of the lines (North/West/East). Just complete the mission without any of these Hummers getting destroyed to get this.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP+4tFw=.jpgUntouchable - 20 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Complete the mission without using the fire extinguisher in Fire From The Sky

In the co-op mission "Fire from the Sky", you and your partner will pilot/gun a helicopter. The pilot has the option to hit http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/rb.png when the helo gets significantly damaged to use a 'fire extinguisher' to put out the fire to damage. Complete the mission without having to use it to unlock.

Play on easy mode, and keep circle strafing BMP's and take out AA guns ASAP when they appear as they will do the most damage.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UPv6pzY=.jpgNinjas - 20 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Reach the VIP without setting off the alarm in Exfiltration

In the first part of the mission "Exfiltration", you enter an apartment building to extract a captured VIP. You start with a silenced pistol, so use that in combination with your knife and your partner to take out enemies in silence. Be sure if you shoot, you and your partner are synchronized, otherwise the alarm will go off if taken too long to kill multiple enemies. The achievement unlocks once you escape with the VIP down at street level.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP8hTZM=.jpgPush On - 20 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Reach the garage without going into man-down state in Hit and Run

Obviously just play on easy mode and don't get downed, you can take your time to achieve this and communicate with your partner!



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP4nUCg=.jpgIn the nick of time - 20 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Disarm the bomb in under 20 seconds in The Eleventh Hour

In the co-op mission "The Eleventh Hour", one of your first objectives will be to disarm a bomb on one of the train carts in the subway station. When you approach the area the bomb is in, it will be armed and a 60 second timer will start. Disarm the bomb in under 20 seconds, as in if you start at :57 seconds, finish disarming it before :37 seconds. (There was confusion on this where some thought it was defusing the bomb with under 20 seconds left on the timer, that is not the case.)



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP2Zvek=.jpgBullseye - 20 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/cM...K6VRTo2O0XAG1c
Reach and save the hostages without alerting any enemies in Drop 'em Like Liquid

This is the hardest achievement in the game by far. You need a solid co-op partner who communicates well and snipe enemies without alerting anyone. If for some reason there are enemies on your side of the street, you've screwed up somewhere and must restart the mission. There are numerous youtube videos that offer tutorials, I recommend watching one several times and playing the level a bunch to get used to where everyone is. The hardest part is the area where 3 sets of 3 enemies come, once past that it is relatively easy.. just don't miss.

Unlock all unique co-op weapons

To see the available unique co-op weapons, in the menus go to My Soldier -> Stats & Progression (Co-op). Playing co-op missions will earn you points, which in turn go to unlocking new unique weapons to use in multiplayer. Here is a list of all the weapons and the points needed:

Weapon - Kit - Type - Points
MP412 Rex - All - Sidearm - 5,000 pts
KH2002 - Assault - Primary - 17,000 pts
MP7 - All - Primary - 34,000 pts
M39 EMR - Recon - Primary - 58,000 pts
93R - All - Sidearm - 86,000 pts
SG553 - Engineer - Primary - 120,000 pts
G3A3 - Assault - Primary - 160,000 pts

There are 'glitches' so to speak to gain more XP points while playing co-op missions. Here's the most common one below. Honestly though, this will come naturally, all points will accumulate from failing/dying on missions. Once I finished my Bullseye achievement I was only 50k or so from the final weapon unlock (at least on the original point scale for the weapon unlocks). You can average about 10k per level played.


Online Multiplayer:

Obtain your first enemy Dog Tag

To obtain a Dog Tag, you have to kill an enemy via knifing by using the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...es/misc/rb.png within melee range. You have to be either behind or coming from the side of the enemy for the animation to take place. This should come naturally through normal gameplay. If having trouble, try flanking enemies (especially snipers) and stab them on the ground.

Finish as MVP in a ranked match

In online Battlefield play, you score points for various actions such as kills, assists, spotting, objectives, etc. Always be active in helping your team play towards the objective in order to score lots of points. To check your current score, press and hold the http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../misc/back.png to pull up the scoreboard. Play as Assault class, killing enemies and reviving teammates will get you the most points. Also play on Conquest as capturing flags can get you 450 points.

To get these achievements you must finish 1st, 2nd or 3rd out of all players in the match, not just on your team. If you're having issues with these, play in Squad Rush as your chances to get the Ribbons increase greatly as there's only 8 people in Squad Rush as opposed to 24 in Rush or Conquest.

Achieve rank 45

Colonel is the highest standard rank to achieve for multiplayer. This will be the most time consuming of the bunch, upwards of 75 hours (if playing legit). You will need to accumulate a total of 1.6 million experience to reach lvl 45. Here's a link with a breakdown of levels and unlocks: Battlefield 3 Unlocks Guide – Weapons, Gadgets, Kits, Vehicles and Ranks
However, there are numerous boosting methods; such as nemesis boosting and maintenance boosting.
Nemesis Boosting: Squad Rush, 8 players, any map. 2 sets of 4 people kill each other then revive their teammates; the nemesis bonus and revive bonus increases infinitely.
Maintenance Boosting: (must be done in Hardcore mode) Play as Engineer class, equip the EOD bot and deploy it. Now suicide and equip the repair tool, the bot will not despawn. Run back to the bot, shoot it a few times, then repair it. You can also do this infinitely.
**Boosting is being looked into by Dice/EA, so boost at your own risk.**

BF3: Back to Karkand
**Roadmap and guide also found in the Karkand subsection at the top of the main forum page.**


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP7yjBw=.jpg
Complete Warrior30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.pngGet a kill with the following weapons in a single life: Assault Rifle, Jet, Tank

This will be difficult for a lot of people that aren't decent pilots (like me!). Anywho, you must get a kill with a Jet, a tank, and with an assault rifle
in one life! The preferred order to do this, and I think most will agree, is to get in a jet at the start of the match and get a quick kill. Then either parachute out, or land and either hop in a tank for a kill or shoot someone while getting the tank. The only saving grace is that this can be done on any map that has jets, like Caspian Border, Operation Firestorm, Wake Island etc. It has been reported by some that they've gotten a jet kill, but for some reason it did not register a kill for them. Just be wary of this.. the achievement is not glitched, but the kill register might be.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UP3VmBI=.jpg
Third Tour20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.pngGet a kill with each of the following vehicles: the BTR-90, DPV and F-35.

This isn't overly difficult to do, doesn't have to be in the same game, the kills accumulate over multiple matches. The DPV looks like a dune buggy.. not to be confused with the VDV Buggy. So make sure you jump in the right vehicle. The BTR-90 is a Russian built troop carrier tank like thing. It can be found on Conquest (on the Russian side) on the Gulf of Oman for sure. Now the F-35 is the jet that has the capability to hover and is an American built plane. I've found them on Wake Island and Gulf of Oman for sure. (Must be on American team)


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...4/UPw1YIE=.jpg
Gunslinger20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.pngGet 10 kills with each of the ten Back to Karkand weapons

Sounds simple enough, however, you don't have these weapons at the start of the DLC. These are all weapons you must unlock be completing assignments! Here is a link of said assignments: http://tommynation.com/battlefield-3-karkand-assignments-details/
You must complete the Tier 1 assignments to unlock the 2nd tier assignments for each class.

**Important!** It is reported that once you get 10 kills with a FAMAS, you must then get 10 kills with it in one game. There is apparently a small glitch with this; but the achievement is still attainable. No e.t.a. on a fix.

Assault Tier 1:
FAMAS – “Best Friend Forever
10 Revives
10 Heals
Play as the Assault class with med-packs equipped. Revive 10 teammates and get 10 heals and you receive the FAMAS which is an excellent assault rifle.


Assault Tier 2:
L85A2 – “Professional Russian”
100 Assault rifle kills
20 Grenade launcher kills
Win 5 Squad Deathmatch rounds

Bust out that newly acquired Famas and kill 100 with it, use the M320 grenade launcher attachment (unlocked at 11000xp in Assault) and get 20 kills with that. Then play some Squad Deathmatch and get 5 wins.

Engineer Tier 1:
G53 – “Fixing it”

10 Repairs
1 Kill with the repair tool
Play as Engineer class and keep that repair tool handy! Get 10 repairs on team vehicles and get 1 kill.. preferably sneak up behind someone and burn them to death!

Engineer Tier 2:
QBZ-95B – “It goes Boom!”
50 Kills with AT rocket
1 Enemy vehicle destroyed using the repair tool
Win 5 Conquest rounds
Play as Engineer, use the SMAW (US) or the RPG (RU) and kill folks. Blowing up a tank with 2 people in it with a Rocket will count towards your total. Destroying a vehicle with the repair tool can be kinda tricky, but you can destroy anything! What I mean is, an enemy spawn beacon, a MAV or a T-UGS will all count. I personally got mine by destroying an LAV at an enemy spawn point with no one in it. Then be on the winning team for 5 rounds of Conquest.

Support Tier 1:
QBB-95 – “Let it rain”

20 Kills with Light Machine Guns
2 Mortar kills
Get 20 kills with any LMG in any match. Now for the mortal kills, I personally did not have the mortar unlocked (Mortar unlocks at 40000 Support score). But I came across a poor fellow in a not so safe area with his mortar deployed; I killed him and took his kit and got my mortar kills that way.

Support Tier 2:
MG36 – “Keep your head down”
100 Kills with Light MG
50 Suppression Assists
50 Ammo Resupply Assists

Get lots of kills with that new QBB that you just got while getting some suppression assists here and there. Keep throwing down ammo boxes for teammates and snipers hanging back and you'll have that done in no time.

Recon Tier 1:
QBU-88 – “Specops”

20 Kills with sniper
6 Laser designations
You have to use a sniper rifle for this assignment.. can't use a PDW weapon this time. Get 20 kills any way you can. Now for the laser designations you must use the SOFLAM (unlocked at 26000 recon score) and lock on to vehicles in the area. Once you lock onto a vehicle and have solid tone.. that counts as a designation.

Recon Tier 2:
L96 – “Creeping Death”
50 Headshots
50 Spot Assists
5 Knife kills

The beauty of this assignment is that it can be done with any class. So any headshot and any spot assist (by pressing Select while targeting an enemy or vehicle) will count. Same goes for knife kills!

Any class Tier 1:
PP-19 – “Familiar Territory”

ARM 10 MCOM stations
10 Flag captures
2 Hours played on Strike at Karkand
Play some Rush and you just have to arm the M-Com, it doesn't have to explode! So if you arm one, an enemy defuses it and you arm it again.. that counts as two. Play some conquest and cap those flags! Play specifically on the map "Strike at Karkand" for two hours.

Any class Tier 2:
MK3A1 – “Scarred Veteran”
10 Kills with the PP-19
6 Kills with the DPV Jeep
10 Kills with the BTR-90 APC
2 Hours played on Sharqi Peninsula
2 Hours played on Gulf of Oman

Once you unlock the PP-19 (which is a pretty good gun) get 10 kills with it. Make sure you are in the DPV (not the VDV Buggy) and run down some enemies in it. I personally just ran loops on the streets of Gulf of Oman and ran people down. The BTR-90 is generally only found on the Russian team of Gulf of Oman on Conquest only (not Conquest Assault). Then play 2 hours each on the specific maps.

Like a Boss30 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.pngGet a kill with the skid loader

The Skid Loader is basically one of those Bobcat bulldozers you see frequently at construction sites. It can be found on Wake Island (if playing conquest) near the Airfield. Just hop in and try to run someone over with it.

Jaws20 http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f.../site/gp-g.pngTake a swim in the Oman Hotel swimming pool

Play the Gulf of Oman and you'll see a tall building; if coming from the American spawn point it's off in the distance to the right; if coming from the Russian side it's up the hill to the left. In front of the hotel is a pool.. have a nice relaxing swim in the hot desert sun and try not to get shot in it.

I would go into more detail on some of the achievements. The reason the other guide is incomplete is because it offers no strategies on how to obtain certain achievements, although they are all quite easy (single player).

When I write a guide, I idiot-proof it so a first-timer to the site that has never read a guide before can understand and appreciate the effort put forth in writing the guide.

Like for Involuntary Euthanasia, for example, I would put in the solution that if you stay in the bus and look hard enough, you can point out the two enemies heads poking up in the distance. You can shoot them from the bus without any danger of the building falling on them to get the achievement (that is how I did it).

For Army of Darkness, you should mention that in Battlefield, sniper bullets tend to arc the farther they go, so you should aim just above each light to destroy the light. In other games, sniper bullets don't arc, so hitting it head on would work. That's not really the case in Battlefield games.

For You can be my wingman anytime, I would list at what times it's safe to shoot your missile after the enemy jets fire their flares. The solution from the other guide was good for this, actually.

For Lock & Load, you didn't state that every time you play a mission, your points accumulate whether you finish it or not. I didn't know that until I read it in one of the other site's guides. I think there should be some mention of it at least.

For Car Lover, you should mention that to take out the second tank (the one that comes from down the alley to the West), you should lay down mines in the street far enough away from each other so when one explodes, they don't all explode. That will weaken the tank where it will only take one Stinger shot to destroy instead of three (which should also be mentioned that it takes three shots to destroy a tank on Easy, four on Hard). I know it's in the video, but I think it should be mentioned. We don't want this guide to be turned into just another video guide... ;)

For the individual ribbon achievements, I think that you should list what ribbons unlock each achievement instead of referencing the Ribbon Guide.

For In the nick of time and Between a rock and a hard place, I would post the button combination needed to do everything correctly since it never changes. That way, people know what button they expect to push next.

For the secret achievements (story related), I would post what my Word guide says instead of the "See Semper Fidelis for more information". It's not that many more words, and it lets the guide reader know where to expect that achievement to unlock.

I would rewrite the Roadmap, too.

Just some thoughts. That's all I noticed for now. :)

God damn second guide today..this does look better than the other one though so nice work.

There's a video for practically every achievement.. can't get much more detailed than that.

For Lock and Load, I do mention you keep all points.

I'll update the efficiency ribbon guides.

bLaKgRaVy 11-11-2011 04:24 AM

Ok, fine. It's your guide.

Rekker09172194 11-11-2011 02:47 PM

Yo. Instead of fighting over guides why dont we just collaberate our guides together and ?get it sticked. It will have the makings of Neomop and blackgravy and will be so idiot-proof and complete that a the caveman from geico can use it.

Xenolith666 11-11-2011 04:25 PM

This one has been submitted, and a sticky requested. Any of them are fine to go up to the top.. personally I think that this forum has been set to the side by the mods due to MW3. So we'll see what happens.

Rekker, it seems your guide got closed.. mind if I update mine with some of your info?

blackgravy, it's not that I don't appreciate your input, but for me a video interpretation of what needs to be done is easier to follow than text.. especially for the wingman achievement. I'll update a couple things here and there, but I prefer video.

You can take info from it. I actually requested that it be closed because there is no point in having 3 guides. Just please give some credit to me and blackgravy. Thanks.

I just updated some stuff and added some descriptions.. see anything that needs work?

Rekker09172194 11-11-2011 05:21 PM

Na. It looks good to me.

Xenolith666 11-13-2011 04:38 PM

Been asking for a sticky, but to no avail.. if some people wanna send in requests and get this at the top permanently, that'd be great. Sick of having to look for it!

PrinceofDeath86 11-14-2011 02:48 PM

This really needs to be on the front page!!

Polygon Pirate 11-16-2011 04:03 AM

Bumping this so it gets sticked on page 1.

Also bookmarking. ;)

.

UrStupidAndFat 11-17-2011 05:21 PM

Just bumping the thread dont know why it hasn't been stickied yet.

Xenolith666 11-18-2011 05:48 PM

I've asked a few mods to sticky this and gotten no response, one mod even said it's not the responsibility of the mods to even do the sticky. The guide has been submitted.. just have to wait I guess.

This probably isnt even close to likely but...

...Maybe the Mods are Cod fanboys?

Also, Side Note: The fucking vodka ads on this site are REALLY intrusive.

Even if they are this is still pathetic that this hasn't been stickied ,this guide is amazing and has helped me get 1000G on it but its on the second page so peolple looking for the guide Will just think there isn't one.

isacc813 11-20-2011 05:07 PM

Thanks for the guide!

DeviousD 11-21-2011 10:22 AM

Nice guide very useful

Xenolith666 11-22-2011 03:36 PM

Thanx to Nozza for getting the guide prepped and stickied! Appreciate it!
Now everyone can find it easily.

LawlCake1214 11-22-2011 08:06 PM

Nice guide. Only need one more achievement (Bullseye) then I get 1000G.

jamal2807 11-22-2011 11:29 PM

False.
Give this game a 1000/10 Difficult
Cause the last mission on hard ITS IMMPOSSIBLE ITS THE BIGGEST BULLSHIT !!
OMG mw3 on veteran was so cool and battlefield suck as hell on hard this is so stupid.

Nerdz0r 11-25-2011 04:11 PM

Just want to say the campaign achievements take a lot longer than 5 hours I must say. I completed the campaign on Hard it took me a day and a half! I didn't get stuck on anything. I did have breaks in-between missions but it is more than than 5 hours surely.

Also to above, I didn't find the game at all hard on the hard mode. Especially the last mission. What were you stuck on?
