Battlefield 3 Achievements Guide

Not on my watch (25 points)
Protect Chaffin from the soldiers in the street in Operation Swordbreaker
Kill as many enemies as you can. After Doc thanks you and starts moving your buddy to safety, more enemies will appear. Take them as out as well and you'll get the achievement.


Involuntary Euthanasia (25 points)
Kill the 2 soldiers before the building falls on them in Uprising

This is a bit tricky to do since it happens too fast. After getting on the bus which gets hit by an RPG, stay inside and take out the three enemies nearby. There are two enemies that will appear straight ahead as soon as you exit the bus. The building beside them will crumble and you have 3-4 seconds to kill them both before the debris buries them alive. See the video below.

 


Leaving them alone could've saved me a few bullets...

 

It is recommended to do this on Easy mode since enemies will die quickly and your auto-aim will be more accurate.


The Professional (30 points)
Complete the street chase in Comrades in under 2 minutes 30 seconds without dying
To unlock this achievement, you need to complete the street chase in less than 2 minutes, 30 seconds without dying. Stay on the left side of the street! Continue running and shoot only the enemies directly in front of you. Take note that the timer starts as soon as your character removes his gas mask. Refer to the video below for further details. It is strongly recommended to attempt this in Easy difficulty since you can't reload the checkpoint if you died during the chase. You'll have to restart the whole mission for it.

 


Dodging bullets is my specialty

 


Army of Darkness (30 points)
Shoot out the 4 lights with 4 bullets in Night Shift
Aim a bit on the top of each light and press-hold L3 to hold your breath and steady your aim. Remember that you can't hold your breath for too long. It's recommended to immediately shoot after holding your breath for 1-2 seconds.

 


Four lights with four bullets

 

Practice makes perfect (15 points)
Headshot each of the targets in the gun range in Kaffarov

You only need to score headshots on the stationary targets so you can take your time and carefully aim at them. You don't need to land headshots on living targets. Just carefully move around the corners and kill enemy soldiers first before shooting the targets.

 


Practice makes perfect

 


What the hell *are* you? (20 points)
Take a russian Dog Tag in the forest ambush in Rock And A Hard Place
At the start of the mission, you'll be ambushed by enemy soldiers. There will be two nearby soldiers; kill one of them then run and knife the other to get the Dog Tag

 


That'll be mine, thank you

 


Roadkill (20 points)
Kick the car to kill the soldiers in Uprising

In the part of the mission where you stumble upon a group of enemy soldiers guarding the garage where you're supposed to go. Sneak behind the car hanging at the edge then press B to kick it down.

 


Two for the road!

 

You can be my wingman anytime (30 points)
Complete Going Hunting in a perfect run
Remember that if you didn't meet any of the requirements to unlock the achievement, you'll have to restart the whole mission. It is recommended to attempt this achievement in easy mode.

• Kill all bandits without a single miss
• Do not get damaged

Here's a general rundown of what you need to do. The numbers indicate the order of the fighters you need to take out. Check out the video below for more information.

1 - Dump 2 flares to defend yourself. After getting the prompt to take out the enemy fighters, wait for the enemy to drop flares 3 times (fire as soon as third flare is released). Start counting only after you have weapons control!

2 - As soon as second fighters is in sight, fire missile
3 - As soon as you get a lock as the fighters moves to your left side, fire missile
4 - Wait for the enemy fighter to fly by and release countermeasure if tracked. Wait until you get a lock and after enemy releases flares three times. Fire missile once he's in front.
Note for #4: If you're not tracking the bogey's movements, you may miss seeing the first flare. Just take note of your plane's movements. The bandit will release two flares while in front of you. After the bandit releases its flare and after your plane barrel rolls, you may release your missile.

5 - You'll get a lock immediately if you killed the fourth bogey correctly. Just release your missile.

After the cutscene, you'll have to defend yourself against two bandits. For the first barrage, wait for a solid tone then release your flares. In the next barrage, after the solid tone, release a flare then keep pressing LT again to immediately release another batch of flares (to deflect the second missile). Do the same thing for the third barrage.

6 - Wait for two flares, fire missile
7 - Wait to get a clean lock, after 3 flares, fire missile

 


The Perfect Run

 


Scrap Metal (25 points)
Destroy 6 enemy tanks before reaching the fort in Thunder Run

Use zoom and adjust your shot since these tanks move only in one direction. You should be able to take them out in one go.

 


Love the smell of burning steel in the morning

 

Butterfly (25 points)
Take down the jet in one attempt in Rock And A Hard Place

This is a very glitchy achievement to unlock and you need to take out the SU-25 with one shot. Some say that you won't unlock the achievement if you're killed by the bombardment and reloaded a checkpoint during the mission so may take that into consideration. One noticeable glitch you'll notice is that the objective to shoot down the SU-25 appears AFTER you destroy it and after moving to the objective marker. Another thing to note is that some say to stick close with Cole and hide where he hides until you get the chance to run to the Stinger. Once the jet is marked, take aim and fire once you get a solid lock.

 


...stings like a bee

 

Twofor (15 points)
Take down 2 enemies with 1 bullet in Night Shift
After taking out the 2nd guard overlooking from the building, Campo and you will climb up the roof of the next designated RV. You'll be ordered to take out two guards standing by the entrance of the building your ground forces need to enter. Line up and kill them with one shot. See the video below.

 


Two PLRs, one shot

 

Between a Rock and A Hard Place (15 points)
Beat Solomon, flawlessly, in The Great Destroyer
During the action sequence in Times Square, you have to press the quick-time action buttons that will appear in your screen correctly until you defeat Solomon. In case you missed a button, reload the checkpoint and try again.

 


New York City Brawl

 

Ooh-rah! (30 points)
Complete the campaign story

Semper Fidelis (50 points)
Complete the campaign story on Hard

Car Lover (20 points)
Complete the mission without losing a humvee in Operation Exodus
This is recommended in easy mode. Your priority targets will be the RPG troopers and tanks. It will also help if you and your friend both carry a fully loaded and ready Javelins as it only takes 3 Javelin hits (regardless of difficulty) to destroy them. You also need to remember the location of ammo caches so you can immediately resupply when needed.
When the mission starts, plant some claymores in the alley left of the overpass so you won't have problems later. For the first wave, take out the footsoldiers as usual, then take out the first tank using your javelin. For the second wave, the mines you placed earlier should be enough to destroy the second tank. Just concentrate on taking out the RPG troopers. For the last wave, the tank will appear from the tenement building by ramming through the front door so make sure you and your buddy concentrate your fire to it until it is destroyed.

Untouchable (20 points)
Complete the mission without using the fire extinguisher in Fire From The Sky
For this mission, you and your buddy will have two different albeit very important roles. One will be the pilot and the other will be the gunner. The pilot will be responsible for keeping the chopper airborne while flying it as stable as possible for the gunner's convenience and efficiency, as well as evading enemy fire. The gunner will deal the most destruction as he has access to explosive, auto-cannon and hellfire missiles.
Aside from playing this on easy, it is also recommended to play with close friend so you can easily interact with each other. Though the pilot has access to unguided Hydra rockets, it is the gunner's main responsibility to take out enemies.

You must maximize your weapons' range as possible; don't just go up close to engage especially marked targets and enemy armor. You're fine getting damaged a bit – just don't take damage severe enough to disable your helicopter.


Ninjas (20 points)
Reach the VIP without setting off the alarm in Exfiltration
Again, recommended on easy and preferably with a friend. Having headsets is critical for communicating and timing your shots. You must take out the guards with one shot, so having individual targets and countdowns for synchronized shots is vital for this achievement. See the Co-op walkthrough for this mission for more details.

Push On (20 points)
Reach the garage without going into man-down state in Hit and Run
This is pretty much a very straightforward mission where you need to need to fight through a bunch of enemies as you move towards the objective markers placed in the map. Playing this mission on easy is already a given but there's also one more thing that you must remember to unlock this achievement: both you and your co-op partner MUST NOT go into man-down state. Going through this mission in a slow yet steady pace is vital to keep yourselves alive in the entire ordeal.

Bullseye (20 points)
Reach and save the hostages without alerting any enemies in Drop 'em Like Liquid
This is strongly recommended on easy difficulty and preferably with a friend. Having headsets is critical for communicating and timing your shots. You must take out the guards with one shot, so having individual targets and countdowns for synchronized shots is vital for this achievement. This is by far, the hardest co-op mission achievement to acquire. It will take one mess up to screw your chance of getting this achievement during the mission.
See the Co-op walkthrough for this mission for more details.

In the nick of time (20 points)
Disarm the bomb in under 20 seconds in The Eleventh Hour

This is fairly straightforward mission and of course, should be done in Easy mode. Kill all the guys near the entrance then run to the platform. Continue killing the enemies as you make your way to the front of the first train. Take note that after crossing the barricades, the timer will start. Rush forward and you should immediately see the timer countdown ahead, inside the second train. Kill enemies along the way and find the bomb. Complete the quick-time event as fast as you can to disarm the bomb.

Two-rah! (30 points)
Complete all co-op missions
The co-op missions are the following:
• Operation Exodus
• Fire from the Sky
• Exfiltration
• Hit And Run
• Drop 'Em Like Liquid
• The Eleventh Hour

Army of Two (50 points)
