Are the All Kits weapons part of this Achievement too, because some of these guns already have kills from normal BC2?

Its just the 4 main kits (12 guns), Assault, Engineer, Recon, Medic, that need to be gold, i have 9 gold so far, should be done tonight.

Actually, you do need the 3 weapons from the orginal BBC2 but it carries over kills from it so if you have a silver star on the Thompson - you have that star in Vietnam.

No, you need the 3 guns specific to each class.

Saturday, January 01, 2011 @ 02:34:33 PM

But, yes the stars transfer but the Thompson is not one of the guns you need for the achievement.

Saturday, January 01, 2011 @ 05:56:10 PM

Do you just have to get the gold star on the 12 main guns and not the shotty and the M1

Comment #7 by Lothra
Sunday, January 02, 2011 @ 04:32:30 PM

@6 Yes just the 12 guns, the people above are giving conflicting/false info, i have the achievement, i can confirm 100% that you just need the 12 main guns, i had no kills at all with the shotty or M1 and got the achievement so they do not count.

I have found a way to boost kills for guns and vehicles I would like to have some people test it out with me if you're interested message me. the game type will be squad rush I will need 8 people, 2 people on each team will kill each other and 1 of their team mates will revive them then we will swap killers every 50 or so kills. if we have a good game then we can boost for however long we want because of no time limit if you have any other questions message my gamertag TFW Party Boy

The guns for this achievement are as follows: M16,AK47,M14,M40,M21,SVD,M60,XM22,RPK,MAC10,PPSH, and the UZI I have the achievement and can confirm that these are the only guns you need. And it took a really long time to get.

Comment #13 by MohawkMedium
Tuesday, March 15, 2011 @ 11:24:17 AM

Because the sights suck on the SVU and the M21. I got gold stars easy just by using them as you would a FAL in COD, straight up hip fire in CQB (close quarters combat). easiest way. and also play Rush

Comment #14 by Hells Shaggy
Saturday, April 02, 2011 @ 11:58:17 AM

I wish the sniper scopes were actually sniper scopes not red dots .... They seem so pointless to try and snipe with these things. People that somehow see across the map with these things when it's hardcore have to be hackers. These things can't see any farther than a damn shotgun in the regular game >.>

Comment #15 by GuyAboveMeSucks
Tuesday, April 05, 2011 @ 09:20:47 AM

I snipe people alll the way accross the map and dont use 12x scope and mos tof the time dont use snipers at all. Just have to learn the feel for the guns and where to aim above those lil red triangles :)

Comment #16 by Edman
Monday, April 11, 2011 @ 03:52:16 PM

@Hells Shaggy: the sniper rifles in vietnam have crappy scopes because there was no such thing as a sniper rifle at the time. the marines had just started to use snipers in the field and they only had hunting scopes to put onto standard issue rifles

Comment #17 by matdan1212
Wednesday, April 20, 2011 @ 06:23:17 AM

Funny post, clearly haven't played any WWII games have you? There were quite a few sniper rifles like Mosin Nagant and Springfield.

Comment #18 by Hells Shaggy
Monday, April 25, 2011 @ 10:11:54 AM

@Comment #15: You do realize I said hardcore ... right? No red triangles are in hardcore mode .... So yea :/ Fail ...

Comment #19 by TunaFish30
Monday, May 02, 2011 @ 08:09:16 PM

Mosin Nagant and the Springfield are not sniper rifles, they are Battle Rifles like the M1. Add a scope and you got a gun that can be used for sharp shooting.

Comment #20 by spiffokeen
Sunday, May 08, 2011 @ 08:17:13 PM

@Comment#14(&18): I wish the scopes all had standard crosshairs, but all you have to do to get kills across a map is what #15 says except you aim above the person instead of the triangle. None of the Vietnam maps are so huge that it should be a problem, especially with a 12x scope. So other than the mention of triangles, I don't know what your problem is with that comment. The concept is still applicable.

Comment #21 by Roose91
Saturday, May 14, 2011 @ 07:51:18 AM

@19 A battle rifle is a rifle with a large cartridge such as 7.62 Long or Thirty O'Six, that is either repetition or fully automatic like the FN FAL, HK G3 and M14 (Fully automatic),or SLR, SKS or M1 Garand. The Mosin Nagant, Lee Enfield and Springfield are bolt action and as such not battle rifles. They are Sniper Rifles as they have scopes, large cartridges and high accuracy.

Uzi is actually a very good gun, seems to be very powerful and I enjoyed using it on hardcore, the only problem is the sights...but you get used to it

snipers in viet are terrible i'm contemplating just using it like a shotgun since svd and the other non bolt action are terrible..also i can't see shit in these maps

Comment #34 by Toxic Inhale
Monday, August 08, 2011 @ 02:42:59 PM

The UZI in this game is the worst piece of crap gun that ever seen daylight, it´s just as bad in the regular BC2, hate it 99 of the kills i got with it was sneakin up on lone snipers, one in an actual 1v1 sitaution :(

Comment #35 by StallordD
Wednesday, August 24, 2011 @ 01:59:11 AM

The UZI didn't pose to big an issue with me. What took the most time was the
goddamn M21 and SVU. Takes three shots with magnum ammo to kill someone, AT CLOSE RANGE! And it seems to me like the 12x scope does absolutely nothing. I notice no difference between it and the base scope.

Comment #36 by exactor it
Sunday, September 11, 2011 @ 08:01:40 PM

M21 and SVD are excellent. I get more kills with them than with the M40. Play hardocre. use Magnum ammo and aim for heads. If you can't get the head do two slowish upper body shots and you take them down. It can't take 3 hits on hardcore as they do does base 39 damage. In fact you don't even need Magnum ammo. Body armor is fine. Lets you take a hit from people so you can turn on them. :)

The really painful gun for me was the M14. Took me right up to 49 kills to realise it was not a burst fire weapon >.> After that it took me to 100 kills to realise it was the worst piece of shit gun in the game. Low clip, low damage, massive sights. Really bad gun. Give me an uzi any day of the week.

Best Weapon/Map Suggestions:

Sniping - Best Place is Hill 187 Team USA is the best to get LOTS of Kills, there's a GREAT mountain overlooking B, the hill above it and parts of C that can net you 10-15 once you get used to sniping with the gun your working on. That Mountain is outside the playing area for the opposing team so You Relatively Safe, though I forgot and moved up a little too far once & almost got knifed.

IF you Are playing Alone: Don't join a squad that way when the next round starts switch over to the other team so you can be on the USA team again & snipe from that mountain again. [Although when you return to the main menu your 'Skill Level' number will say "0" in orange, but it's a small price to pay for The number of kills, it will go back up when you play matches nor

Saturday, April 14, 2012 @ 01:22:34 AM

My average playtime with each weapon was around 3 hours when I got gold stars. I only play hardcore lobbies and I didn't need to boost a thing! Sometimes there's lobbies with a few players and if you keep going I've had lobbies fill up. There's no need to boost these when this game has some of the best multiplayer on 360.

Comment #50 by II King Gviv II
Friday, May 11, 2012 @ 02:58:10 PM

This is easy to get once you have all the silver stars, you should be good enough with the weapon by then to get 50 more kills.

It seems like a difficult achievement, but if you do it in periods of time it really isnt't that bad. I finished like 1-3 guns every other day.
