Death from above - 20
Get one kill with the Gunship

The Gunship is available on all Armoured Kill DLC maps:
Alborz Mountains (Flag C)
Death Valley (Flag C)
Bandar Desert (Flag E)
Armored Shield (Flag C)

You can control the Gunship in Rush or Conquest. In Rush, you must be an attacker, and in Conquest you must control the flag that has the gunship icon near it. I recommend the Conquest game mode, and if your team does not control the gunship, try to shoot it down.

You are able to spawn directly into the gunship, if it has available spots in it, and it allows for 2 people, but it is much easier being the main gunner. The gunship will fly around on its own, so don't worry about steering.

Spawning in the gunship is the hardest part, once inside, just switch to the largest shell, and aim at buildings, vehicles or choke points in the map. You can go to smaller shell if you have direct sight at infantry. Once you get the kill, you see "Player 1 [Gunship] Player 2" in the top corner, and the achievement will unlock.

Please view the below video for more info:


Destroyer - 30
Get 10 kills each with Tank destroyers and Mobile Artilleries

These new vehicles are available in Rush, Conquest & Tank Superiority. You will need to get 10 kills with each new type of vehicle, and it is ok to mix US and RU variants. I recommend the Conquest gamemode, and the locations of where these vehicles can be found are listed below.

Tank Destroyers:
SPRUT-SD (RU Tank Destroyer)
M1128 (US Tank Destroyer)

Locations: (Tank Superiority)
US/RU Deployment(s)

Mobile Artilleries:
BM 23 (RU Artillery)
M142 (US Artillery)

Locations: (Conquest)
Death Valley: Flags A & E
Alborz Mountains: Flags B & E
Bandhar Desert: US/RU Deployment
Armoured Shield: Flags A & E

These can be a huge pain to get kills with using the regular artillery. One tip is to get 10 kills from inside the Gunship, as this will unlock Anti-Air abilities on all Mobile Artilleries. Now just sit back from the action and tear up anything in the sky, easily getting 10 kills (compared to the normal method).


Offroad - 20
Get one kill with the Quad bike

There are 2 ways to get this achievement:

- Quad Bike Roadkill

You will need to find a quad bike, and they are littered all over the new Armoured Kill DLC maps, and your best bet is probably to play Conquest mode. It looks like an ATV. Once you are on the bike, try to catch an enemy that is by themselves from behind, at a fast speed, killing them and unlocking the achievement. Cycle trough 1st and 3rd person view by clicking the Right Stick.


- AT Mine Kills, while seated on bike

Another method is to plant AT mines on a busy street, then seat yourself on a Quad Bike, in a corner of the map, and wait for your AT mines to kill enemy players. If you get a kill while seated on the bike (from your mines) you will unlock the achievement.


Superiority - 20
Win one round of Tank Superiority

Tank Superiority is a new gamemode available in the Armoured Kill DLC. It's a team based game, and the main goal is to capture and hold a flag for as long as possible. It is recommended that your team has a good balance of tanks and infantry units.

It is best to just play a few games until your team wins, and as for tips, remember to play the objective. Destroy the enemy tanks by using the Engineer class explosives, C4 or Laser Designator (Recon Kit). If in a tank, try to focus on enemy tanks and capturing the flag, and then pulling back and defending it.


Dropship - 30
Destroy the Gunship

Play any of the Armoured Kill DLC maps. For this achievement you will want to either be defending on Rush, or not have the gunship marked flag in Conquest.

You will need to spawn as the Engineer class, and it is recommended that you use the "SA-18 Igla" OR "//NAME?" to lock on and shoot down the ship, although you must be standing practically underneath it. It may take more than a few shots, so you may need to respawn and shoot at it more.

Another option which might be easier for some is to shoot the ship using a Jet or Chopper, just take your time coming up behind it and put as many bullets as you can into it.

I've been told you can get it as the second gunner, although initially I was told you couldn't.

I'll need someone to verify, but I think 2nd gunner is fine too!

The second seat is better IMO. The first one shoots the same rounds as the Attack Chopper Gunners, the other one fires rockets that usually one-hit kill. I have some serious trouble getting into the second seat though.

105mm Howitzer rounds, not rockets, but yes, if they're on or close to target its a one hit kill.

(Not my video, found it).

anyone found a way to kill the gunship from the ground?

also...where do you find the mobile AA...not sure if it's the map i'm on of what but i'm not seeing them.

Tank Destroyers:
BM 23 (RU Artillery)
M142 (US Artillery)

Locations: (Conquest)
US/RU Deployement

Mobile Artilleries:
SPRUT-SD (RU Tank Destroyer)
M1128 (US Tank Destroyer)

i've gotten kills with several of these and i can tell you now the SPRUT-SD is not an AA.

Does the Destroyer achievement require you to get 10 kills with Tank destroyers and 10 kills with Mobile Artilleries adding up to 20 kills.

i use the smaw. i locked on it, wait a bit in case there's some flares and shoot. works best when others are shooting at it too

otherwise, you could get into a tank (2nd gunner) and just shoot at it. have to be high in the mountains though (you need higher ground for it to work)

was able to do it in a helicopter. but anyone wanting to do this on their own, i was helping a friend with it and it took 5 stinger rockets from the engineer class to bring it down. no one has to be in the bomber, just shoot it as long as it's on the other team.

just did all of this dlc legit in an hour and a half. from the past achievements i was expecting a little more of a challenge.

I think you unlock the AA after getting 15 kills with the AC 130 if I'm not mistaken...

Easiest place to get MA kills by far is on Death Valley at flag E just get into it and don't even move it anywhere just defend E and line up the gun to the first line.

You're thinking of the AA missiles for the mobile artillery.

I'll try that, but it seems there's also a decent method on Alborz Mountains between B and C (video posted on the PS3 trophies forum).

For Destroyer do you need to get 40 kills or 20? I just unlocked and have 10 kills with both TS and 10 kills with one MA but only 3 with the other.

You should re-word "Destroyer"; it's not 10 kills with each vehicle.. it's 10 kills total with either the 'tank' (M1128, Sprut) and 10 kills with the 'mobile artillery' (BM-23, M142).

It unlocked for me only having 9 kills in the Sprut, but 27 in the M1128 and I only had 1 kill in the M142 and 9 in the BM-23. Thankfully it's not each vehicle separately.

And it's 15 kills in the gunship to unlock anti-air missles.
