Been very busy!, I'll write it up later today, just wanted to let you know I didnt forget!
LOL - silly me forgot to unlock it!!!
Same rules, feedback must be about these awards. Replies deemed by myself to be off topic will be removed.
(ps. this one may be ugly, I wrote it up pretty quick and I don't recall proof reading it, but by now you all know that writing is not my forte.)
Rating: Very Easy
10 seconds in parachute IAR
Fly transport high into the air.
Make sure no one is in transport
Bail out and open chute.
You can also just jump from a titan
I think this is the first award I ever got because I didn’t know how to get out of the titan when I started playing.
Titan Commander Ribbon
IAR - 10 minutes as commander in titan mode
25 hours as titan commander
Easy enough, command titan round for 25 hours then command for 10 more minutes. If you can’t command for 10 more minutes then you are either
A: Getting kicked A LOT
B: Getting key packet issues from PB
C: Your team really sucks somehow.
D: CTD/Freezing after 9 minutes
Rating: Hard to Very Hard
IAR – 7 knife kills
IAR – 10 knife kills
50 total knife kills
IAR – 17 knife kills
150 total knife kills
For some this will be hard for others pretty easy. It all depends on your style of play and really how good you are. First thing is to bind an easy to hit key to the knife, this way you have quick way to switch. Trust me, it helps a lot.
If you not sure about using the knife, start with bigger maps. Silos and flags are good areas to hunt, lots of people usually hide around to cap. Titan defending when your team has only has 1 corridor left. Head behind everyone through the opposite corridor and you can catch them waiting for nade spamming to stop. These are good places to start but if you want to get 17 in a round for the gold, you need to do better.
For the gold I suggest large player servers and infantry maps.
These maps have lots of areas for you to sneak up on people, areas to wait and let people pass, and lots of targets to choose from. The recon invisibility thing can help but don’t rely on it as it often leaves you stranded when you uncloak and good players see you anyway. On infantry maps things can get hectic and you can sometimes run right up to people and get them.
Remember to always take chance when it presents itself and remember to either crouch or go prone when you are going to knife to lessen the chance of a ‘plink’ off the armor.
The main thing is you just need to keep at it, and practice.
IAR – 10 explosive kills
IAR – 15 explosive kills
50 total explosive kills
IAR – 20 explosive kills
300 total explosive kills
This can be easy or hard depending on how you play. The easy way to get this is to use FF=Off servers and just plant RDX at your feet and set them off with someone near you. This makes you a sad player. I would stick with recon for these badges. You have two chances for kills (APMs and RDX). APMs work great on the titan and the rdx can be used anywhere and for any purpose. A few cheap ways to get kills. During titan mode when the shield is down on your titan, plant rdx on the APCs the enemy is using, wait for someone to spawn and boom. Same goes for transport. The cheap ways wont get you 20 kills IAR but will at least get you a few kills. You really need to proactive during the entire round to get 20. I still suggest titan mode as it give you so many ways to use the RDX and AMPs that you just don’t get in conquest.
Another good tip is drive around in an APC, race up to a tank or mech, emp it, hop out, plant rdx, get back in the APC, drive away and set them off.
I did get bronze and silver with motion mines but it is A LOT harder to do and takes more time than using APMs or RDX. (maybe the bait will help, I never tried)
Remember you can easily keep track of how many you have by the pins you get.
Don't be afraid to kill yourself in the process, if you a quick chance to take out 5 guys with an RDX pack do it even if you die.
IAR – 5 kills pistol
IAR – 10 kills pistol
50 total pistol kills
IAR – 18 kills pistol
300 total pistol kills
This one I thought was going to be very hard as I think the pistols stink big time (specially the revolver one) Bronze is not that hard. Use the pistol like you would the knife and sneak up on people and hit them from behind at CLOSE range. Aim for the head! Body shots seem wasted and it will take like 6 – 8 rounds to kill anyone. Best option is the Infantry based maps. I got my gold on camp Gilbralter.
I used support with the Clarke. Here is what I did. Bind a key that’s easy and quick to the pistol. At semi-close range, whack them with the Clarke, switch to pistol and fire away. Also, Camp G. has so many nooks that you can easily just hide, let people pass and then blast them from behind, plus there are lots of people just camping around to sneak up on. The best area is at the ruins. Close range and so many way to flank people attacking it. I got the majority of pistol kills at the ruins.
It still takes some effort because of the accuracy and damage of the pistol.
You can also try this in the titan also. Defend your titan after consoles 1 and/or 2 are down. Stand in either corridor 1 or 2, wait for attacks to run by, run out behind them and shoot away. The titan may be good for bronze and silver but I wouldn’t try gold. I did and there were never enough people to kill or there were too many so I could get 1 person as 4 ran by and one of those other 4 would get me.
Aircraft service Ribbon:
Rating: Medium to Hard
IAR – 10 minutes in air vehicle
IAR – 20 kills in air vehicle
This can be pretty easy or pretty hard to get. Depends on if you want a gunner or not, or if you are the gunner for the gunship.
If you want a gunner or want to gun, You want a friend that you can voice chat with. Make sure you or the gunner is good with the TV missile.
This works well for ground vehicle, let the tv missile hit it then you use the main missiles to finish the job. Always look out for transports. They can carry 5 people at 1 time so you can get up to 5 kills in one go. If you don’t like having a gunner then you need to rely on killing vehicles and transports yourself, which is harder and takes longer. I suggest playing conquest mode as the rounds usually last longer than titan mode. Make sure its not a huge server, as 32 player with 16 players seems best as everyone uses vehicles.
Sidi power plant is a good map. It only has one gunship so you need to control flag 2 or steal it. It also gives you plenty of targets, both air and ground based. Remember to attack armor at their weak areas to not waste missiles.
Over all I found this one hard. It seems better to do on your own (no gunner). You can’t rely on being a gunner because of the pilot. If you have a gunner you can’t rely on the gunner to hit anything with the tv missile. So unless you have a reliable gunner or pilot that you work very well with, do it yourself and forget the gunner. 20 kills is still pretty hard to get.
I bet some people could get this in a transport but I won’t even try.
