Back to Karkand is the first installment of DLC for Battlefield 3! There are 4 new maps to choose from, they are: Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman, Sharqi Peninsula and Wake Island. All are re-imagined BF2 maps. There are new weapons (which are unlocked by completing the new assignments) to kill your friends and foes with and new vehicles to crash and burn!


F35: Is found when playing on the American team on Wake Island and Gulf of Oman. This jet has the ability to hover as well, which can come in handy to lock on to some unsuspecting choppers.

The DPV is a dune buggy looking vehicle, do not confuse it with the VDV Buggy which looks more like a jeep! The DPV can be found on pretty much all the Karkand maps.

This one gives most people trouble to find. It is 100% for sure found on Gulf of Oman at the Russian base; you must be on the Russian team and you must be playing Conquest (not Conquest Assault). Unfortunately you can't tell the difference if using the server browser between CQ and CQA. I personally would just search Quick Match, Conquest, Gulf of Oman and hope for Conquest. If it puts you on the American team, you can attempt to switch sides (if the opposing team isn't full). If you get CQA, just quit and try again.


All achievements will be accrued playing online multiplayer. You have to do a little bit of everything, but the bane of most peoples existence (that aren't experienced pilots) will be getting kills in jets. A majority of your time will be spent completing the assignments to unlock the new Karkand weapons. To the achievements!
Thanx to Predni for allowing use of his videos.

Complete Warrior30 Get a kill with the following weapons in a single life: Assault Rifle, Jet, Tank

It is now possible to achieve Complete Warrior in a 1v1 Ranked Match with a rented server. Do NOT adjust the ranked settings or this will negate the match being ranked.

This will be difficult for a lot of people that aren't decent pilots. 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 jet kill, then tank, then assault. 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.
