Introduction
Welcome to Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the sequel to the first Battlefield: Bad Company, created by DICE. The game is much more user friendly than the first, and much more straight forward. Prepare to fall into combat and firefights for the safety of the United States. Chose from a full arsenal of weapons from AK's to LMG's to various Rocket Launchers. Enjoy the goofy characters that are back to fight for the second time.

Breakdown
The game is beyond straight forward. Shoot enemies and blow stuff up. All of the achievements can be obtained on the first playthrough. Follow this M-Com guide as you progress through the story to get your Satellite Uplink related achievements.

Step 1
Start a new campaign on Easy. There is one difficulty-related achievement, It sucks to be right for beating the last level on Hard, but you can play the entire game on Easy first and then just load the last level. As you start, follow the M-Com guide. As you walk over the various weapons that your enemies drop, pick them up, and keep them if you like them. They will be added to your collectibles and can be used whenever you arrive to a weapon resupply station, which appear as envelopes on your map. You’ll need to find 15 different weapons to get the collectible-based achievements. As you progress through the campaign, make sure to use the different weapon variants to get the "Get 50 kills with Shotguns, Snipers, Assault Rifles, Light Machine Guns, and Sub Machine guns". Once you finish the campaign, you should have unlocked:

-All story-based achievements.
-All ‘50 kills with X weapon’ achievements.
-All satellite uplink (M-Com station) achievements.
-All collectible weapon achievements.
-The achievements for destroying 100 and 1000 objects.
-The achievements for demolishing 1 and 50 houses.

If you are missing any of the ‘destroy objects’ or ‘demolish houses’ achievements once you have finished the campaign, load up "Heavy Metal" in the campaign as you take control of a UAV and destroy the houses/objects around the enemies that you are supposed to take out. Rinse and Repeat until unlocked.

Step 1.5
Once you have completed Step 1 and gotten ALL of the campaign related achievements, you should be missing but one single campaign achievement. Go to "My Campaign" in the main menu and choose the level "Airborne”, and then set the difficulty to Hard. Completing this final level will give you your final campaign related achievement.

The next part is to get the remaining 400 . This all takes place online, in the Multiplayer. How quickly you will unlock these largely depends on your skill and how patient you are with the game.

Step 2
Multiplayer. Oh, how some dread you. It must be done, if you want the achievements, that is. If you do not want to boost the online achievements, please visit the Achievement Trading Thread. If you're playing the online part without boosting, you are in for a fun experience! Find yourself a group of buddies to play with on your epic adventure of leveling up and gaining achievements. While you’re playing, make sure to gain experience with each of the classes by killing people and completing objectives. Take a note of the various online achievements, so you’ll know how to unlock them. The list of awards and their description is also important. Most of the achievements are straight forward. If you need any help on how to get these certain achievements, check the guide and follow the instructions on how to get the achievement you are looking for.

Note: All multiplayer achievements are only obtainable in ranked matches.

Specact DLC
The SPECACT guns are different variations of the final gun unlocked in each class. You must use this gun to unlock the specific achievement. Get a 5 kill streak, 8 kills in one round, and a total of 100 kills with the weapon all together.
 
Onslaught DLC
Gather yourself 2-4 members to be on your squad(4 is highly recommended). Always have someone sticking back for any level just to make sure you can keep progressing. If one person stays alive, you can respawn as many times as you need. Take out enemy vehicles as a first priority. Clear a area and then they will start sending in reinforcements. Find a good spot of where they spawn from and make sure no one is in the vicinity of the flag. If someone is, you won't take over the flag. This DLC shouldn't be too hard with some buddies. You can start on Hardcore and go right at it. But I recommend going through it on a easier difficulty first to figure out where the enemies/vehicles spawn.
 
Step 1 Vietnam DLC:
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.

Step 1b: Vietnam DLC:
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.

Step 2: Vietnam DLC
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.

Conclusion
Well, by now you should be well on your way to a full 1000 . Follow the guide closely and you should have no troubles getting all the achievements. If you miss anything in the process, refer to the Achievement Guide.

To have it count as demolishing a house, you must shoot out the surrounding walls with explosives(i.e. grenade launchers/rocket launchers/etc). Then the building will make a noise as if massive amounts of metal were bending, and the roof will collapse onto the ground. This counts as a building being "Demolished." You do not have to cause the buildings to collapse, but if they do collapse while you’re running through your mission, it will count towards this achievement.

  • If you by some chance haven’t unlocked this on your first play-through, load up the level "Heavy Metal" and use the UAV to destroy the buildings around the enemies. Rinse and repeat until you have this unlocked.

The engineer class is the second class you can choose to spawn with. It includes a submachine gun, a repair tool and RPGs/Rocket Launchers.

To unlock more weapons in this class, you must get points with this as your spawned class. (Getting kills/destroying vehicles/destroying M-Com positions/etc).

You need 16,000 XP to unlock the third weapon for this achievement.

To unlock more weapons in this class, you must get points with this as your spawned class. (Getting kills/destroying vehicles/destroying M-Com positions/etc).

15 Minutes of Fame15
Online: play for 15 minutes 

Simple stated, play online for a total of 15 minutes. This is cumulative and does not have to be a full game. Many games last longer then 15 minutes and this will probably be your very first achievement.

Mission... Accomplished.15
Online: in a round do one kill with the knife, the M60 and the RPG-7 (9) 

Like it says. In one single round, you must kill someone with the knife, the M60 and the RPG-7. To kill someone with the knife, press near an enemy to get an instant kill. To have a M60 in your Medic kit you have to reach 25,000 XP in that kit, and to have a RPG-7 you must spawn as an Engineer. Press and shoot it at an enemy.

Pistol Man15
Online: get 5 kills with every handgun in the game (3) 

Self-explanatory. Switch to the handgun you have selected in your class by pressing . Then get 5 kills with that handgun. Once you have accomplished this, repeat with a different handgun. You unlock the last handgun at Level 13. Your stats screen may say otherwise, but it is level 13.

Airkill15
Online: roadkill an enemy with any helicopter (38) 

An easy way to get this achievement is by using a UAV station while playing online. Fly up high until you find yourself some lonely group of troops or a lone sniper. Once you find yourself some enemies, fly down low and hit your enemy with some speed. Should be an instant kill. Most enemies don't expect a helicopter inside of a building either.

Alternatively, a slightly harder way is to take control of a full sized helicopter and just crash/fly low into an enemy.

Et Tu, Brute?15
Online: knife 5 friends (166) 

To obtain this achievement, you have to knife 5 people on your friends list. It can be the same person all 5 times. The easiest game type I found to get this in is Rush. Sneak up somewhere so that you are out of the enemies’ sight (try your best). Have your buddy keep running up to you. You can also have another friend be a medic, and keep reviving the knifed teammate until you unlock your achievement.

Demolition Man15
Online: get 20 demolish kills (367) 

Demolish kills are when a building collapses on someone and kills them. To know it counted as a demolish kill, watch for when it will say "Demolish 2.0" as the weapon, just like in the campaign for demolishing houses. There must be enemies inside of the house/building. This may be the most time consuming achievement in the multiplayer since it is so rare to find a building that can collapse and actually getting it to collapse on an enemy. An easier way is to call in mortar strikes with the Recon Kit on objectives in the "Rush" game mode. There are bound to be enemies inside, and it will weaken the building and possibly cause it to collapse. Just look for the areas of buildings/wall that have not been blown out yet, and call in a mortar strike on that position.

Careful Guidence15
Online: destroy an enemy helicopter with a stationary RPG (32) 

Stationary RPGs (tripods with a missile launcher on top) are used the same way as a turret would be, except that they have a laser guided system. Find yourself one while there is a helicopter flying around. It has to be a little lower to the ground since these launchers can't aim very high. Shoot the rocket and keep the red square target over the enemy helicopter.

The Dentist15
Online: do a headshot kill with the repair tool (22) 

To have the repair tool you must first use the Engineer class until you unlock the repair tool(1000 xp). To pull out your repair tool once you have it, press on your D-pad. The best way to accomplish this is to sneak up on a sniper that doesn't see you, and put the repair tool up to his head and press to spin the repair tool.

Won Them All15
Online: win a round in all online game modes (17) 

There are a total of 3 different online game modes needed. You don't need to play Squad Rush to get this achievement. They consist of.

  • Conquest
  • Rush
  • Squad Deathmatch

Some of the game modes will include maps designed specifically just for that certain game mode. Get yourself a nice squad together and play each of the four game modes until you net yourself an easy achievement.

Squad Player30
Online: obtain the Gold Squad Pin 5 times (4) 

To obtain the "Gold Squad Pin", your squad (max 4 players) must be the top squad of the entire match (i.e. getting the most kills/least deaths/most points). Get yourself a couple of friends that are good at the game and do your best. If you call out enemies/vehicles/enemy positions with the , you will receive extra points and this will help towards your Squad Pin.

Combat Service Support15
Online: do 10 resupplies, repairs, heals, revives and motion mine spot assists (9) 

This is cumulative and does not have to be completed in one round.

  • Assault kit: (Resupply) Carries an ammo box to resupply your teammates. You will receive points for when a teammate uses your ammo box to get ammo.
  • Engineer kit: (Repair) This kit has the repair tool to fix vehicles. A repair is when you are repairing a damaged vehicle by approaching them with the Repair Tool equipped and pressing . It will give you points for repairing the vehicle every couple of seconds. Each time it gives you points, it counts as a "repair".
  • Medic kit: (Heals and Revives) The medic kit gives you a box that over time gives your teammates health back. Every time it gives you points it counts as "healing" someone. To revive someone, pull out the defibrillator (chest panels) near a dead teammate and shock them. This will bring them back to life and give your team one life token back.
  • Recon kit: (motion mine) A motion mine is just what it says. You place them on the ground and whenever an enemy or vehicle passes by, your entire team will see them on their HUD. To get a motion mine assist, an enemy must pass by the mine and then get killed by a teammate who have spotted him with the help of your mine. "Motion mine assist" will pop up, and it will count each kill towards your achievement.
Award Aware15
Online: obtain 10 unique awards 

Refer to 'Award Addicted.'

Award Addicted30
Online: obtain 50 unique awards (11) 

You should easily get this while playing the online legit with some buddies. You must obtain a total of 50 different unique awards in online matches. Awards are given for accomplishing something during the match, or cumulatively from several matches. Getting so many kills/killstreaks, etc. Getting stars with weapons/vehicles counts towards this achievement. The list goes on and on.

The tank at the beginning of this one is the biggest thing to help you. With the tank this level will be no problem at all.

  1. Take the tank
  2. Always have a engineer in the tank to repair the tank.


First Flag - Go to the right side of the level and clear the area. There is a S-RPG in the center in a shack. Make sure you take it out. Once you cleared out the area, have the tank watch up the road and kill everyone that spawns to come to the village. After the first flag, a tank spawns on the left side of the hill. Have a Recon eliminate the tank.

Between First and Second Flag - Near the right side of the Second Flag, have two Recon classes have mortar strikes hit the Patrol Boat that shoots mortars at you. Make sure the person with the tank does not go near the sight of the patrol boat til it is eliminated.

Second Flag - Have your teammates flank on the right side near the water. Drive the tank up slowly and eliminate the enemies that spawn at the end of the road. Have a person repairing your tank as there are more engineers that will shoot rockets at you. Drive the tank up to the flag and just keep shooting the enemies until you have captured the flag.

Third Flag - There are two gunner vehicles that are in the center. Have the person with the tank to drive up there and eliminate the two vehicles with ease. Have your squad move up the right side as there are minimal amounts of enemies. Just have 2 people in the tank and have them shoot up the road killing any enemies.

Fourth Flag - There is a tank in the center of this village, have a engineer go and blow up the tank while trying to shoot it with your tank too. This tank is easy to eliminate. In the back left corner of the map is a Heavy MG. Once you kill the MG, drive the tank up to the flag and have your squad hide in the trench next to it. Shoot the enemies on the right side as that is where they spawn(parachute in). You should have this flag in no time.

Always have someone staying back behind the enemy's line of sight.

Have each of your teammates be one weapons class.

  • Assault - Best is the AN-94 Abakan with 4x scope and Magnum ammo.
  • Engineer - Always have the M2 Carl Gustav AT with Extra Explosives
  • Medic - Lay down fire and stay a bit farther back, healing and reviving your teammates when needed. Always have a tracer dart as a medic, you have enough bullets to load out regardless.
  • Recon - Always have mortars and keep the enemy at bay and not to advance to far on you.

First Flag - This one shouldn't be to much of a problem until the chopper comes. Be ready to have the tracer dart with your team and once it is traced, eliminate it with a Rocket as fast as possible. The faster you destroy this chopper the easier this flag will be to over take.

Second Flag - The second flag has many Heavy MG's located around it. Have 2 Engineers move up as some of the enemies are killed and use the Rocket Launchers to take out the Heavy MG's with ease.

Third Flag - This one may prove to be the toughest. A tank appears and can be tough on your team if not taken out quickly. Have a Recon call in a mortar strike or 2 engineers shooting Carl Gustav's with increased explosive damage. Once you have cleared the enemies front line, they spawn in the far right and left corners of the map. Have a medic go up to the flag and hide behind the crates. Everyone else set up camp and protect your medic from different angles(Recon snipe from a distance and 2 Assault classes kill any enemies they see advancing on your Medic.

Strategy One: (Makes this level easy)
The key to this map is the play conservative with your vehicles. If someone can fly the Apache, then this map will be very easy. There isn't truly a base strategy for this map. Always play as engineers. If you take the Apache route, there should be two in the Apache. And two people in the tank. Keep these vehicles protected as much as you can. If your Apache starts to smoke, fly away! The Apache is very powerful against infantry units, but not that good against ground vehicles. Their purpose is to kill infantry and the helicopters that spawn. The tank is to take out other tanks and to take over the bases.

Strategy Two: (A little harder)
Have two people take the tank and two people be engineers with tracer darts. Have the tank take out enemies and the engineers take out any major vehicles like Helicopters and Tanks.

Nelson Bay Conquered10

This one is quite short and one of the easiest ones to do. Many of the flags are near a building so you can stay inside the building while defending the flag to capture it. Engineers will be very helpful because there are a lot of enemy tanks, buggies, and enemy Heavy MG's.

First Flag - On the way to the first flag there is a Heavy MG. Once you reach the first flag, stick inside of it and defend the perimeter while you capture the flag. This one shouldn't be to difficult. If it is, have someone stay upstairs as they will be out of the line of fire.

Second Flag - The second flag has a Heavy MG on the roof and a tank that spawns in the area. Take care of the Heavy MG with a rocket and then have your engineers take out the Tank. Take cover in the building and do as you did previously, protect the perimeter and raise the flag.

Third Flag - On your way to the third flag stick to the right side. Have a engineer destroy the buggy with a rocket that appears in the center of the area on the road. Then follow the train cars up the right side to get into the building. Cover the building's doors and kill the enemies in the area. Some may need to be killed on the roof so that you can begin capturing the flag.

Cantankerous Chauffeur25
Get 100 kills with Vietnam tanks (18) 

Exactly as the description says. You can use any tank for this. Just run for the tank as soon as the round starts, if you don't get to drive it being a passenger is fine.

When driving the tank you can use the tank's main gun or the flamethrower to get kills. If you get stuck with passenger just use the secondary turret gun.

If you're not very good in a tank I suggest going for this in normal core playlist. In the hardcore playlists you do not have a reticule.

Ride of the Valkyrie25
Get 50 kills with the Huey (62) 

Get in any chopper and kill, kill, kill. If you can't fly a chopper get on the side guns so you don't crash and destroy it, they take awhile to re-spawn.

The Huey can be found on the map 'Phu Bai Valley'. Easiest way is Rush as attackers, which is probably easier as the defenders have no tanks to shoot you down. You can change the chopper controls from normal to inverted if that makes it easier for you.

It might help using the V WARHD spec. If you are not good with aiming do it on normal core playlists because hardcore playlists do not have reticules.

Would you kindly STFU?10
Destroy a Hannoi Hannah propaganda speaker (24) 

It takes a bit to destroy them with bullets so I suggest using a grenade launcher, rocket launcher or C4. Even a tank if your in one and see a set of speakers.

Cao Sun Temple Base C Always works.

I destroyed about 8 before it unlocked so keep that in mind if it doesn't unlock straight away for you.

Great Balls of Fire25
Get 20 kills with the flamethrower (11) 

Get 20 kills with the flamethrower. Cao Son Temple and Hill 137 are recomended. You can also get kills with the flamethrower in a tank if you use the V FLAME vehicle spec.

If you're having trouble get a friend to help you out by letting you kill them. It should be pretty easy as it's only 20 kills.

Just Because I Can25
Finish first on the scoreboard on any Vietnam level (40) 

This will come with time. If you're not that good at the game then just get a few friends to join the other team and kill them.

If you are really good in a tank or the Huey jump in that and get as many kills as possible. You even rack up a good amount of points being a passenger in them.

Destroying the targets in Rush or capturing the flags in Conquest give a good amount of points too.

Secret Achievements
2nd Tour of Duty25
Achieve the best squad award on Operation Hastings (29) 

Easy to get with a good team. If you have 4 people in your squad it would be a good idea to have one person of each class. Leave ammo and health with your sniper in case they need it. Have one person driving a vehicle with guns, and make sure the engineer is with them.

When the vehicle gets damaged get the engineer to repair it (while still trying to get kills from it) that should get you some good points there. If the medic is with you or close by - even better! If a sniper or lucky soldier kills the engineer or driver depending on what vehicle your in, quickly revive him and leave a health down, try to protect the engineer as much as possible but without dying if you are the medic.

Medics give out good points for revives and health. Going for objectives as a team is also very rewarding. In Conquest the person capturing gets 150 points and each assistant gets 75. So if you have your whole squad capturing an objective that is 375 points.

In short:

  • Give ammo when needed or even if they can take any you still get points.
  • Revive when you can and throw health as much as possible.
  • Fix squad vehicles for good points.
  • Capture objectives as a squad.

Operation Hastings map will unlock when 69,000,000 squad points have been made globally.
