Roadmap!

Aftermath is the next installment of DLC for Battlefield 3! There are 4 new maps to choose from, they are: Epicenter, Markaz Monolith, Talah Market, and Azadi Palace. The maps look relatively small compared to most BF3 maps.. but a little bigger than Close Quarters.

Weapon!

There is one new weapon included in the Aftermath expansion and that is the Xbow. It is a single bolt crossbow with 3 more bolts that you unlock by completing assignments. They are the Scan bolt, HE bolt and BA bolt; I'll go into detail of these in the achievement section. The Xbow can be equipped in one of your gadget slots once you have unlocked it; and to select bolts that you've unlocked, equip the Xbow and press on the D-pad to cycle through the available bolts. Next to your ammo count are the bolt icons; they are: 1) Standard Bolt 2) Scan Bolt 3) Explosive Bolt 4) BA Bolt

Vehicles!


There are 3 new vehicles included with this expansion and they are the Barsuk, Pheonix and Rhino. They are all jeep/van type vehicles with good speed and loaded to the teeth and can also be utilized for troop transport. There are no jets available on these maps, there are however your standard tanks, transport choppers and littlebirds.

New Gametype!


All other previous gametypes will be available with the Aftermath maps; as well as the addition of Scavenger mode. Scavenger mode is where you are only equipped with a knife, 1 grenade and a pistol (it does not matter what class you pick) and you have to search the environment and 'scavenge' better weapons to better your chance at winning the game. This is indeed a team based 'conquest' type game where you have to capture objectives. Weapons are scattered around the map and are broken into 3 levels of goodness.
1) PDW weapons
2) Sniper rifles, Shotguns and Xbow
3) Fully automatics
All weapons are marked with a blue arrow when you get near and specify what level they are. The games are very quick as well!

Online!

All achievements will be accrued playing online multiplayer. You have to do a little bit of everything with each class. A majority of your time will be spent completing the assignments to unlock the new Xbow and its attachments. There are 10 new assignments with the Aftermath expansion, and some of them are linked to certain achievements. All in all this is a very attainable achievement list and I, for one, am looking forward to it!
To the achievements!


Guide has been submitted for review.

Handyman 20 Unlock all xbow parts

Ok, so the Xbow is not available from the start, you have to complete an assignment to unlock it, and further assignments to unlock the extra bolt attachments; there are 3 bolt attachments and one scope. Once you unlock the xbow all assignments for the attachments become available.


1) To unlock the Xbow you must complete assignment: Sticks and Stones - win 3 rounds in Scavenger Mode (see gametype description above) Once this is completed unleash the Xbow; you will have standard bolts to start with. It is very effective close to medium range.

2) To unlock the Scan bolt (which spots enemies on impact in a 10m radius) you must complete assignment: It Is Ok To Thank Me - Get 20 spot assists; designate 10 vehicles; get 1 designated assist. Play as the recon class and utilize the T-UGS/MAV for spot assists and the Soflam to designate vehicles. You should get 1 assist if someone uses Javelin to destroy a target you designated. (If you are having troubles with designations/assist, I suggest playing the Armored Kill expansion, mainly Tank Superiority, should get 10 desi's in 1 round without too much effort)

3) To unlock the BA Bolt (basically a better flying bolt) you must complete assignment: Stay Away From My Tent - 50 sniper rifle kills and 10 headshots with a sidearm.

4) To unlock the HE Bolt (explosive) you must complete assignment: A Good Demo Man - 5 kills with each of the following: hand grenade, underslung grenade launcher and C4.

5) To unlock the Scoped Xbow you must complete assignment: Go Play Close Quarters - Total 150 meters of headshots with sniper rifles, assault rifles, and carbines. This shouldn't be too bad since you can hit people from pretty far away. And every head shot adds up, whether it be 1 meter or 100 meters.

**To switch bolts, have the Xbow equipped and press on the D-Pad.**


Bite your finger 30 Find the secret reptile

It's an east...errr.. dinosaur egg! So there's a large, flesh eating dinosaur loose in the world of BF3. Ok... so it's not so large, it's a dinosaur trophy. It can be found in a pipe near the C Flag (on Conquest) on the Epicenter map. If it doesn't pop as you crawl by; shoot it. Video provided by
Maka



Home made javelin 20 Destroy an enemy vehicle using the xbow

You will need the HE (explosive) Bolt to complete this. Please reference the "Handyman" achievement for more details. Once you have it, shoot some vehicles; I would advise against tanks.. but Littlebirds and any Jeep type vehicle will do nicely. The explosive bolts are not very strong; as suggested by Maka, hang near a transport vehicle and damage it with a grenade.. when someone jumps in, shoot it. Otherwise try and get someone on a quad bike.


**CONFIRMED** I can personally confirm that shooting enemy equipment counts for this achievement. I shot an enemy mortar and the achievement popped. Same goes for an enemy spawn beacon, T-UGS, MAV.

Here's a video provided by Gamerreview. It is also possible to shoot an enemy vehicle even if the enemy driving has left it.



Pocket full of death 30 Without dying, get a kill with xbow, primary weapon, and hand grenade

Complete Warrior 3.0! I'm sure some people will be able to pull this off without much issue. For those that aren't awesome, I would suggest waiting until you unlock the HE bolts since they are explosive. I would also suggest trying this on a Close Quarters map since they are smaller and fighting is generally thick in certain areas. The Xbow is 'classless' and is used in a gadget slot; so go with a class you are comfortable with. Although, I would take Maka's advice and go with the Support class so you can resupply your grenades at will. Video provided by Maka




Extreme Hoarder 20 Pick up 50 weapons in Scavenger mode

Play the new gametype Scavenger Mode (description in Roadmap) and roam the maps and pick up weapons on the ground. It's really that simple.. just keep picking guns up. You can work on this while simultaneously getting 3 Scavenger wins to unlock the Xbow. You can track your progression in the "On top of the richter scale" assignment. I got over 50 in about 5 games. If you just dedicate yourself to only grabbing weapons, and not the objectives, it will probly take 3 matches or less.

I don't know if the achievement is bugged, but I got " home made javeline" achievement by shooting a spawn beacon with a normal bolt and it popped!? some else try and see if it works for you too, it can be the easy alternative for the achievement.

I might try that too. Haven't unlocked HE bolts yet. Not as fun as shooting a tank but hey...

I think soldier..."camo"?

Confirmed it this morning by shooting an enemy mortar that was on the ground. Achievement popped.

A video has been added as well where the vid maker states you can shoot an enemy vehicle that an enemy has abandoned. As long as some enemy drove it at some point. Can't be a freshly spawned vehicle.

Not that I can see.. I used the Soflam and just painted targets.. didn't even realize I got an assist until after the fact. I had painted the C-130 and a Jet shot it down with missiles. Just keep trying, but that's how to do it. Play an Armored Kill map since there's nothing but tanks and planes.. should get it that way.

Guide has been submitted for review.

I think I'd lower the amount of time to complete it to 5 to 8 hours.

No way it takes more than 10 hours
