Second Assault Assignments

The Second Assault DLC has arrived for Xbox One players, and is on the near horizon for all of the other platforms. With this expansion comes several weapons and other fun unlocks. Below is a quick guide of what you can get–and how to get it!


Five weapons are on the way with the Second Assault expansion pack, and we thought you may be curious about the assignments you’ll have to complete in order to unlock them. All of the weapon assignments are considered Bronze Assignments; they are fairly straight-forward, but be aware that some of them are tied to specific maps. It’s also worth noting that you’ll have to be at least rank 10 before trying for these!

Here they are, the Second Assault weapon assignments:


Assignment: Express Train

Assault Rifle Ribbon x1
Kill Assist Ribbon x2
Get 10 kills inside the Metro


Assignment: Dead Stop

Shotgun Ribbon x1
Raise or lower the Caspian Border Gate


Assignment: Dust Devil

Anti Vehicle Ribbon x1
Destroy 5 vehicles in Gulf of Oman


Assignment: Co-Pilot

Spend 10 minutes in helicopters
Do 10 Squad Repairs


Assignment: Eagle’s Nest

Sniper Rifle Ribbon x1
In a  round, kill 5 players from the Caspian or Firestorm towers



Besides weapons, DICE has made some camos and dogtags available exclusively through the Second Assault expansion pack. The requirements for these range from Bronze to Gold Assignments, and therefore increase in difficulty. One of them even requires you to unlock every gun that comes with the DLC in order to even start trying!

Here are the assignments to unlock these camo patterns and dogtags, along with some shots of the actual rewards. Check them out!



Bronze Assignment

Start 5 fires in Second Assault

Unlock Weapons and Gadgets with China Rising Assignments

Yesterday, we told you about the weapons and gadgets that were on their way with the upcoming China Rising expansion. Wondering how to get your hands on them? Never fear! In true Battlefield fashion, these new toys will be unlockable by completing assignments (they couldn’t just let us have them for free, right)? Luckily, Battlefield assignments involve shooting stuff and blowing things up. Perfect.


 Here is the list of weapons and gadgets, and their respective assignments:


As we know, five weapons will be available with this DLC, and each one has it’s own unique set of requirements in order to obtain. If you’re in the market for these, here’s how to get them:


Assignment: Open Fire

Assault ribbon x3
Get a kill with a pistol in a round
Get a kill with 40mm grenade in a round
Get a kill with the defibrillator in a round


Assignment: Need Only One

Sniper ribbon x3
Get a kill with a shotgun in a round
Get a kill with a DMR in a round
Get a kill with C4 in a round


Assignment: Multitalented

Get a kill with an AR
Get a kill with a LMG
Get a kill with a Sniper Rifle
Get a kill with a grenade


Assignment: Powder Keg

LMG ribbon 3x
Get a kill with the M224 Mortar


Assignment: Make A Dent

Destroy an air vehicle with portable AA
Anti Vehicle Ribbon x3




Two really cool gadgets make their way onto the Battlefield, and–with the information we have so far–they don’t seem quite as easy to get as the weapons above. I, for one, am not much of a pilot–I’m a boots on the ground kind of girl…but maybe some of you will enjoy this kind of thing. Here are the assignment details for obtaining these new-to-the-series gadgets:


Assignment: Safe Raiding

Get a kill with the bombing raid


Assignment: Eyes in the Sky

Air Superiority Ribbon x1
Jet Fighter Ribbon x3


Apparently, for those of you who just love the glory of achieving there is an extra assignment just for you. There is no word on any reward for completing this yet. Of course, that could change, and if we get any information to that effect we’ll let you know!

Additional Assignment: Middle King

10 Hours China Rising
5 Kill streak
1 Kill with SUAV
