Back to Karkand is Battlefield 3's first batch on downloadable content. Featuring four new maps and vehicles, ten new unlockable weapons through unique "assignments," and five new achievements, the Multiplayer will offer so many goodies with the Back to Karkand expansion. Whether you're piloting the new F-35 Jet on Wake Island, or working towards obtaining the powerfully amazing L96A1 Sniper Rifle, you will find yourself spending countless hours obtaining everything the DLC has to offer.

There are five new achievements to be obtained in the Multiplayer portion of Battlefield 3 with the Back to Karkand expansion. Four of the achievements will be map specific, while the last achievement is more of a milestone reward. In order to obtain Complete Warrior, you will need to achieve a kill with a Jet, Tank, and Assault Rifle all in one life. Operation Firestorm and Wake Island will be the best choices in maps to attempt this. After obtaining at least one kill with each of the new vehicles: the BTR-90, DPV and F-35, you will unlock Third Tour. Take note that the F-35 is only accessible to the American team, while the BTR-90 spawns for Russian team. Gulf of Oman is the "go-to" map for this achievement, as you can find all three vehicles on this map. Jaws can also only be unlocked on the Gulf of Oman map once you jump inside the swimming pool of the hotel located on the far East of the map. On Wake Island, you'll want to find the new Skid Loader (Fork Lift) vehicle on the Airfield and run someone over in order to unlock Like a Boss. Lastly, the milestone achievement, Gunslinger, will require you to complete 10 unique assignments in order to unlock the 10 new weapons. Once you get at least 10 kills with each weapon, the achievement is yours. These assignments are broken down into 5 different categories with two tiers each, ranging from getting headshots and mortar kills, to killing a set amount of enemies with specific weapon types.

Overall, Back to Karkand is a fun-filled DLC as it offers 4 incredible maps with awesome environments. The achievements aren't too difficult but you may find that Complete Warrior and Like a Boss will test your patience! The assignments are an interesting addition too, as they add a new layer of replayability to the Multiplayer. Between the amazing dogfights that take place on Wake Island and the chaotic close-to-long range firefights that occur on the other three maps, Back to Karkand is a great Multiplayer expansion to Battlefield 3.
