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?

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.

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.

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.

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?

Lots of team work and Luck!

On Sharqi Peninsula(I think), Enemy tank was driving on a Small Side Street. My Friend shot it with a few RPGs while I ran up and Torched him. I was Elated(to Say the least. I may or may not have yelled in Excitement) when He didn't jump out and I got the kill.

This will be the Hardest Assignment to Unlock legitimately.

If all else fails have a friend switch teams, get a jeep, and meet you somewhere way out of the way.

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.

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.

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.

I think a better question is how the hell did you play 250 hours in this game in less than 2 months since its release? Did you spend all 250 hours with a repair torch equipped? Doubt it.

Also like it has been said this is very easy to do. And very helpful and your only option to fight a tank if your engineer is equipped with air missiles. Have done this countless times. Just have to have the balls to run up to a tank and go. People rarely jump out.

Trying to take a tank down with a repair torch before the latest patch was near impossible. The repair torch did too little to tanks armor but now that the repair torch has been buffed and the tanks nerfed it is a lot easier to do.

Also what game do you play that people never jump out of vehicles, it seems like the moment a vehicle is disabled people are jumping ship.

But I see that you only have two repair torch kills, so maybe before you say it is easy you should have a little more experience or know what your talking about. http://bf3stats.com/stats_360/Arsenic%2017

I'm so glad I found this thread! Been trying to take out a vehicle with the torch for ages with no luck but after reading this, I simply destroyed the next spawn beacon I found and completed the assignment! Thanks!
