Welcome to Vietnam! The final installation of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 DLC that pits you against your enemies on the battlefields of 1950's-1970's Vietnam. The 10 achievements to be unlocked here are all relatively simple, but may require a degree of skill and prowess on the battlefield, as well as the odd boosting session.

Step 1a: Weapons/Miscellaneous
You should begin with the weapon stars for each gun in mind. The 2 achievements for earning a silver, then a subsequent gold star for each weapon, will undoubtedly take the longest amount of time to unlock. Be conscious of the amount of kills you have with your current weapon, as 100 kills is enough for the gold star, so you should switch guns after getting to 100 kills with any of them. The next achievement to take into consideration is 'Great Balls of Fire', which is to get 20 kills with the newly added flamethrower. You will most likely unlock this before anything else, as you start with the flamethrower unlocked, so you could do this straight away. One of the first achievements you will likely unlock is, 'Would You Kindly STFU' which is for a simple task of shooting out a speaker on a specific level. You may not be the first to it, so you will have to wait until you play the map again if someone shoots it before you and hope you get to it first. After obtaining these achievements, you will have 120.

Step 1b: Vehicles
There are 3 vehicle combat related achievements to unlock, all for getting either a certain amount of kills with a certain vehicle or for getting a kill in each vehicle. All of the vehicles can be found throughout the new maps and are free for anyone to commandeer, so you just need to persist in acquiring them for yourself and getting as many kills as possible before the enemy inevitably destroys anything you are driving. After unlocking all vehicle related achievements, you will have a further 65.

Step 2: Winning
you will have the chance to unlock a further 3 achievements for superior battlefield performance. These 3 achievements are for winning on all of the maps, placing first position on the scoreboard after a match and for achieving the best squad performance on a particular map. These achievements are were skill will play the biggest part, as well as persistence, as you have to win eventually...right? This is were the less skilled players may want to set up a boosting session with like-minded achievement hunters. These achievements aren't necessarily hard, but can prove difficult to less skilled players. So whether you boost them or stick it out and persist your way to victory, you will have earned a further 65.

So there you have it. Vietnam is an excellent DLC and you will enjoy every second on your road to 250 and beyond. If you find yourself struggling at all, you should find a dedicated team to play with as co-ordination is a huge advantage.
