Extra equipment: None




Gooooood Morning Vietnam! Welcome to the jungle infested area of Vietnam, where all your guns are outdated and somewhat inaccurate. The achievements here are easy and straightforward but may be time consuming if you don’t have the proper squad or if killing people isn’t on your list of things to do.


Step 1: Weapon Achievements

(Every Gun has a Silver Lining, Ecstasy of Gold) should be the first things you should be focusing on as you will need 100 kills with 12 different weapons and 20 with the flamethrower(Great Balls of Fire) for a total of 1220 kills.

Tip: focus on one weapon at a time then move on to the next when you hit 100 kills with that weapon to maximize your time played. It took me about an hour with each weapon I have completed so far but as I said it varies on your skill level and the skill level of your teammates.

Also in hardcore mode it takes fewer shots to kill an enemy but you lose most of your HUD. It’s a nice balance but it is strictly up to your preference.


Step 1.5:

Be on the lookout for a propaganda speaker for Would You Kindly STFU? (As a side note you need to find a speaker for Vietnamese propaganda, not the American speakers).


Step 2: Vehicle kills

(You may also attempt this during step one) You need to get a kill with every vehicle (Doing the Rounds), for a grand total of six total vehicle kills. After this comes the 100 tank kills (Cantankerous Chauffeur) and the 50 kills with the Huey (Ride of the Valkyrie)


Step 3 (if necessary):

If by this point you have not gotten Can I Go Home Now? (win a round on all maps), Just Because I Can (place first on the scoreboard), or 2nd Tour of Duty (be the best squad on Operation Hastings map) then I suggest you concentrate on these as they might come before you finish step one if you find a good squad.



Bad Company 2: Vietnam is not all that difficult to complete, however it will take some time to finish it all. My final recommendation is to find 3 friends and have at it. Well good luck Soldier and hope to see you on the Battlefield.

Win a round of either Rush or Conquest on all four Vietnam levels


As easy as the description says. You only have to win one round on each of the four levels. Has to be Conquest or Rush, Squad TDM doesn't count. Easiest way to unlock this is with a bunch of friends, but if your playing solo just rush objectives and hopefully you have a good team.


It will definitely come in time if you can't seem to get a win. Here are the levels:


Phu Bai

Hill 137

Vantage Point

Cao Son Temple

Get silver stars on all primary Vietnam weapons


See 'Ecstasy of Gold'



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/960/5-mlsHY=.jpg Ecstasy of Gold - 50http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Get gold stars on all primary Vietnam weapons


You need to get 100 kills with each primary weapon for this achievement to unlock. A total of 1200 kills are needed. Here is a list of the weapons needed to complete:



- M16A1

- AK-47

- M14



- M10 (mac)


- Uzi



- M60


- XM22



- M40


- M21


If you are having trouble with a weapon/weapons then try the hardcore playlist, as enemies have less health and are easier to kill. If you you are still having trouble after trying hardcore, get a friend/friends to join the other team and let you kill them.


You can check how many kills you have with each weapon in the Vietnam main menu. Just go to weapons and gadgets, you can also check your vehicle kills from the menu.

Get 100 kills with Vietnam tanks


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 tanks main gun or the flamethrower to get kills. If you get stuck with passenger just use the secondary turret gun your stuck with.


If your not very good in a tank i suggest going for this in normal core playlist as in hardcore playlists you do not have a reticule.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/960/5-wHW48=.jpg Ride of the Valkyrie - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Get 50 kills with the Huey


Once again a pretty straight forward achievement. Just get in any chopper and kill, kill, kill. If you can't fly chopper its probably smarter to get on the side guns so you don't crash and destroy it as they take awhile to respawn.


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 use 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 it once again do it on core playlists because hardcore playlists do not have reticules.

Destroy a Hannoi Hannah propaganda speaker


This one was a pain for me because people kept blowing up the speakers before i could. I also destroyed about 8 before it unlocked so keep that in mind if it doesn't unlock straight away for you.


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.


Heres a video:

Apparently Cao Sun Temple Base C Always works (Credits to pX I Atticus for the info).



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/960/5--Gqqk=.jpg Great Balls of Fire - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Get 20 kills with the flamethrower


Easy as it sounds, just get 20 kills with the flamethrower. I found it easiest to get kills on Cao Son Temple and Hill 137. You can also get kills with the flamethrower in a tank if you use the V FLAME vehicle spec.


Again if your having trouble get a friend to help you out by letting you kill them. It should be pretty easy as its only 20 kills.



http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/960/5-zhvqc=.jpg Just Because I Can - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Finish first on the scoreboard on any Vietnam level


This will come with time. If your not that good at the game then just get a few friends to join the other team and get them to let you 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 good points too.


Secret Achievements

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/960/5-0BRjQ=.jpg 2nd Tour of Duty - 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png

Achieve the best squad award on Operation Hastings (Conquest or Rush)


Pretty easy to get with a good team. First off 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. Get one person driving a vehicle with guns, make sure the engineer is with them.


When the vehicle gets damaged get the engineer to repair it (while still trying to kill 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 dieing if your the medic.


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


Thats about all the advice i can give you. Just remember:


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.


If you follow what i have just told you, you should definitely get the Best Squad Award first try, if not in the next few round.


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


From wiki:

The fifth map, Battle for Hastings, will be unlocked when the playing community reaches 69,000,000 team play actions. (revives, resupplies, assists etc.)

Operation Hastings is now unlocked.


Thanks for reading my first achievement guide, i hope it helped those who needed it :)

its an ok guide so far imo ur guide would benefit from more description on best place/best map. Rather than just a very short description almost the same as the description on the xbox. Like which maps the Huey spawns on also the fact that u can change the flying controls which some people may find easyer

Ok thanks that makes sense ill update it with best locations, maps etc soon.


I got to go have Christmas lunch first.

So no Tuktuk kills needed for the vehicle achievement?


A tip is play HC if you think the weapon you are using is utter ass in normal, both the m10 and uzi works awesome in hc


TukTuk isn't required for the "Doing the Rounds" achievement.


I found the M10 and the Uzi to work wonders even on core matches.

1. Mention you can get the flamethrower kills w/tank vehicle spec

2. Advise using C4 or other explosive on Hanoi Hanna Speakers

3. Also you can use the WRHD spec for Huey rockets



Whats the WRHD spec do? Btw how many hours do you guys think it would take to get these cheevo's?


10-15 hours?


Later when my GF lets me get away from her ill jump on Vietnam and do some research to finish my guide.

Time taken depends on skill, i got 1 kill total with the Huey and ive been in it for 7 minutes. So 7x50 = bleh amount if i continue to suck in it.

But then again i saw people who had the huey achievement on release and they were legit aswell as in only like 3-4 of the achievement no secret one unlocked etc.


Then you also gotta get 1200 kills for the Gold/silver one combined so that can also be quite a timesink

It's good, I know the achievements are so simple that they didn't even need a guide, but I can make that Road Map if you want! Anyway, people were having trouble, so I guess it's good for them!

Yeah i just made it because i want to start doing full guides because i get some games early from my mate at EB and this was a bit of practice.


Yeah make the guide dude and ill put it in first post and move the guide to the second post.
