A few minutes later they try the same thing so I sprint over there from across the map and just as my teammate is about to blow the boat up I put C4 on it and detonate to get the kill. My teammate then followed me around the entire game shooting at me lol.

Eventually they tried to do it the other way, my teammate took a jeep and went to the docks behind B and then let his friend try to torch him. Fast as an eagle I'm there killing the enemy just as my teammates jeep is about to blow up.

After the game I sent them both a message saying "Aaw, no boosting for you". They both replied in French and using google translate I got this: "Fuck you dirty foreigner".

WINNING!
hahaha

I know right ? It still seems just as easy tho even tho they appear when you first put them down. I got a nemesis kill the other day because this guy kept running up the same spot into my claymores. The only time someone blows them up is when I put them down if they still see me on kill cam. I get hate mail because I use them alot lol its so funny.

Two tricks: You can either take the torch to the MAV if it gets low enough or

I don't know if it was a glitch or not, but I ran up to the enemy vehicle, the guy jumped out, but I still kept using the torch on the unoccupied vehicle till it blew up and I completed the assignment. Don't know how it happened but that's what worked for me.

Played for like 8 hours yesterday, hunting to get something to burn it down. Tried Conquest, Rush, Conquest Assault, nothing. Then, my XBox Live mate said "Hey, there is an EOD Bot in the middle of the map, want to burn it?!" when I was in a Viper, fightning some other chopper. When I heard that I jumped out of the choppa, killing the shooter, got to a a Jeep and got it, finally.

Today, my young soon to be brother in law was watching me play some Rush on Kharg Island. It was the first game today for me. Me in a tank vs. AAV-7A1 AMTRAC and a Tech. Couple of shots at the AAV, my tank started to burn, went out, killed the Tech and he said "Hey, use the torch on that big something". I was like "Naaah, to much burning and there is more than one person inside of it, won't stand a chance". But just for the f*ck of it - I went and started to burn it. Guess what - 4 guys inside, no one left it to the very end. My point? You should listen to children sometimes, they see people as they really are. Stupid. The people, not the kids. Or maybe, nvm, lol.

Managed this today, some guy was so distracted defending an MCOM in his tank and fighting off all my team-mates he didnt see me sneak up behind his disabled tank and torch it til it blew with him in it.

This. If all else fails then nothing is easier to find and destroy than spawn beacon!

Thank you for the tips about destroying enemy equipment such as mortar, t-ugs, spawn deploy, etc. I have been trying to get it by destroying a tank for a few weeks to no avail - teammates end up destroying the tank or I will end up getting shot while being a fool with the repair torch against a burning tank!

No need to boost it. Wait for an enemy mortar to make themselves obvious, shoot the guy using it, and destroy the mortar. Piece of cake.

Like many others, destroying a Mortar seems to be the easiest way. If you're not boosting this, it's dam near impossible to get legit. Whose gonna run up to a Tank and try to destroy it with a torch? That's just crazy talk.

Ever since I read this thread I've never come across any enemy equipment when I have a torch-equipped Engineer. Part of it's bad luck, part if it's the fact that I like AT mines a little too much

If some people are still having major trouble then apart from finding a mortar, I noticed that spawn beacons are a lot less rare if you know where to look, good small maps would be like Grand Bazaar or Operation Metro are where you want to look, mainly around each flag area or enemy/own base for one. Once your near one it ill pop up on your minimap and you will hear it too, much easier to spot than a mortar imo.

Mortars show up pretty constantly on the radar, that's why I think they're easy. Problem is, half the time they're out of your zone at the enemy deployment

I've done this several times to guys in the gunners seat in a humvee, if they are just sitting somewhere you can sneak up on them and burn it down. Although the equipment thing would be much easier. I actually got my cheevo on a tank with 3 guys in it, they were too busy fighting our helicopter while I was in the back burning their tank down

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 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!

I got mine by torching a spawn beacon on Gulf of Oman. Mortars also count as vehicles.
