How the HELL do you destroy an enemy vehicle with a repair torch..
 
I did this maybe twice over 250hrs on BC2.. Literally it's impossible to do it on this game as enemies will always jump out and kill you. I've came as close as disabling a few but even after that you have to hold the repair tool on the vehicle for about 10 seconds to finally destroy it. I'm talking about tanks here as the AMTRAC's & BTR's are even stonger, where as jeeps and buggies are fast and are never stood still.

Anyone even done this yet?

At least 80% destroyed an enemy mortar/ EOD Bot for this, I am one of them.:woop:

HamKet 12-15-2011 06:33 PM

I managed this last night. Weakened a tank with an RPG first, then ran to the rear of the tank and went to town with my torch. I was surprised the guy didn't jump out when I disabled it, but he didn't, and I destroyed it a few moments later.

Kracker Kwon Do 12-15-2011 06:35 PM

Have you tried it with the EOD bot? You can drive it under the tank or IFV and they don't even know it's there until the tank is on fire. Haven't tried it myself after this DLC came out but since it's technically a torch it should count, in theory.


Barad 12-15-2011 06:40 PM

Holy shit never realised I could use EOD bot to my advantage..thanks guys ill try this right now.

Tha Mantis 12-15-2011 07:05 PM

I tried last night and couldn't do it. First I hit a Humvee with an RPG, the gunner didn't move and kept firing, so I ran up with the torch and commenced attack and nothing happened. Only thing I can think is there was another person on the other side repairing it, as it just would not blow up, and I hit it for a good 10sec. or so.

Barad 12-15-2011 08:04 PM

Ok I tried the EOD bot and it's NO help atall..same problem as the repair torch, when their tank is disabled they'll either get out and run or the second person will get out and repair it and shoot my EOD..

How are people getting this seriosuly?

Zombiedrd 12-15-2011 08:47 PM

I found an enemy tank getting attacked by two RPG guys. Waited for them to get it to burn, then ran up and started to burn that ish.

Tommy Gun 81 12-15-2011 09:10 PM

I spawned into a teammate after i already crippled a tank, my mate was right in front of the tank, i used the torch and in a second i blew it up with the driver! Pure luck...like the "like a boss" cheevo...now where i somehow did this i will somehow get my F-35 kill :D

oozero 12-15-2011 09:33 PM

actually I was playing rush on strike at karkand and there was a enemy tank sitting in the street so me and this other engineer just ran up to it and started torching it.. took about 20 sec and then BOOM blew it up.. I got a double kill with the torch and also unlocked the first weapon for my engineer kit for the assignments. I was pretty happy :)

Barad 12-15-2011 09:55 PM

All of you seem to be super lucky in your enemy not jumping out when their burning, I've had nuff attempts scorching tanks but always end up dying or them jumping out :L EOD bot is just a time waster.

I gotta keep at this. Any map suggestions?

BBDrew84 12-15-2011 10:19 PM

I got it on a MAV, I was playing the map Back to Karkland and someone put it on top of the building next to B. I just climbed the ladder and took out my torch and destroyed it.

I got this on one of those big vehicles that act as mobile spawn points (Amtrak or something). Unlike tanks you dont repair them once the enemy exits, so you can damage them with the torch when there are no enemies about.

This^ All of you must not play rush cause I got this twice second time was just for the hell of it. Its so easy amtrac's are just a mobile spawn beacon so you can't get in it just destroy it. Weaken it with rockets then take it out with repair tool.

I1 Chewbacca I1 12-16-2011 02:11 AM

Got mine by torching a mav. I believe that any enemy equipment will count as a "vehicle" destroyed.

yes that makes sense I gotten enough vehicle destroy assists from that thing to know its considered a vehicle. Its actually better to hurt it a lot but not destroy it to get the most points possible. So stupid you get 20 points for destroying it and yet you can get a vehicle destroy assist of 21-99 on it.

Oh oh wait.
You mean when playing rush, you just have to weaken the Amtrac with RPG then finish the job with the repair tool even if there isn't any enemy in there?

InsaneKane87 12-16-2011 09:59 AM

A good small conquest map like Grand Bazaar is good. Just wait for your team to shoot a few rockets at the tank, then run up behind it as that does quickest damage and use your torch.

Kugsen 12-16-2011 10:35 AM

I destroyed the Amtrack on canals with the repair tool on Monday night. Gutted!

Tommy Gun 81 12-16-2011 10:56 AM

If I just knew this earlier...well, at least it is a good feeling having done that task by destroying a tank :D

I did this earlier after reading this thread, i was playing rush on Noshar Cannals. I committed suicide in the process but hey at least i got my Assignment Challenge done! Now to be a rocket whore. I need 30 more kills :boomUnless i can find a decent squad i'll never unlock the last Assault Rifle.

BSH 1975 12-16-2011 12:20 PM

I was on a rooftop and fired 2 rpg's. I was lucky that the 2nd hit when it was right below me and I jumped on top of the LAV and torched it for 1 sec and boom...gotcha.

But an enemy mortar, spawn beacon etc also count.

Barad 12-16-2011 12:20 PM

Ok which maps have the AMTRAK, having lot of trouble with this..tried noshahr canals on conquest but no luck.

What is that other night time map ? For the life of me I can't remember the name I know that map has it as well. And I didn't know you can do this with the enemy mortar ? Ive come across so many enemy mortars after they just died.

Edit: Tehran Highway that's the one.

Sure? Isn't the LAV 25 on that? I'll try later anyway as I'm getting no where on canals, whenever I'm I see an enemy AMTRACK I get killed but most of the time it's destroyed by my teammates or they just get into it -_-

Maybe try Grand Brazzar, I know anytime I see the tank my team is shooting rockets at it, plus its a small map.

Good luck and may the force be with you!

Just do team deathmatch round and search for enemy equipment like spawn beacon, enemy mortar etc. Destroy that with you torch and you got it.

Before trying this which sounds alot easier have you ? It just seems weird the enemy mortar or spawn beacon can be counted as an enemy vehicle lol. What about that little spot tug ? Ive come across so many of those.

Thanks but Grand Bazzar definitely doesn't have an AMTRAK :P

Mortar's and spawn points really count as vehicles? Well if so I didn't know that, will try that now.
