I would suggest playing Grifball in matchmaking - you'll get the
Close-Quarters commendation up to silver in no time at all as you only need 400
melee kills and you can easily manage 40+ per game.

Hi, I'm currently sitting at Lt. Col Grade2, with 37 of 69 achievements completed and yet nothing has shown up on the scorecard for the Commendations list. What am I doing wrong? Any help gratefully recieved.......

Doh, just realised that I had to go online with my account! Did so and dropped to Captain Grade1, but got this and 3 other achievements so a fair trade I think.

HERE are the commendation levels (#11 is doing it wrong)


The easiest way to do this is to play grifball a bunch for the close quarters one. I'm almost up to gold with that now (lulz)
