Ten Blades
Campaign: 10 melee kills

Taxi!
Campaign: drive 5 km in any land vehicle

Do not worry about getting this one; it’s almost an automatic achievement. You’ll drive plenty of vehicles during the campaign. If by some chance you haven’t unlocked this upon completion of the campaign, load up “Sangre Del Toro” and just drive around.

Destruction
Campaign: destroy 100 objects

Refer to Destruction part 2.

Destruction Part 2
Campaign: destroy 1000 objects

Objects include everything from windows/parts of vehicles/trees/outpost.

Anything that blows up/off of the object if shot at. You will easily get this by blowing things up, shooting at enemies and cars as they attack you, and destroying helicopters. Will easily be unlocked during your progression through the story.

Demolish

Refer to Demolish Part 2.

Demolish Part 2
Campaign: demolish 50 houses

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.

15 Minutes of Fame
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.

Self-explanatory. Switch to the handgun you have selected in your class by pressing :y:. 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.

Online: roadkill an enemy with any helicopterAn 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.

Online: knife 5 friends

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.

https://i0.wp.com/tiles.xbox.com/tiles/Ds/OV/14CLiGJhbC82CBsFG1lTWUE4L2FjaC8wLzJCAAAAAOfn5-i6wxI=.jpgDemolition Man
Online: get 20 demolish kills

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.

Online: destroy an enemy helicopter with a stationary RPG

Stationary RPG’s (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 Dentist
Online: do a headshot kill with the repair tool

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:dpl: 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 :rt: to spin the repair tool.

Won Them All
Online: win a round in all online game modes

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 Player
Online: obtain the Gold Squad Pin 5 times

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.

Online: do 10 resupplies, repairs, heals, revives and motion mine spot assists

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 :rt:. 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.

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.
