The points required here are generally quite easy to reach and the difficulty you play on or the time you take during a mission has no effect on the points you earn whatsoever. Points are solely dependent on getting various types of kills. Therefore it is better to play on Easy and take your time.

The multiplayer achievements on the other hand are light this time round, with only five worth 120. You need to reach Rank 25 out of the maximum 100. Rank 25 requires roughly 800,000 points and will take the average player between 25-30 hours depending on their play style. You will need to get five dog tags (knife) kills, 45 M1911 Pistol kills & also deliver five bombs in the new Obliteration game mode. All this is cumulative during your online time and does not have to be done in a single game match. Finally, you need to win at least one round in every game mode online. Seeing as this game revolves around teamwork, and every game mode thus far is a team based mode, this will not be a problem. The modes include:
- Squad Deathmatch
- Team Deathmatch
China Rising DLC
Welcome to the first of five expansion pack for Battlefield 4. China Rising introduces four new maps which include Altai Range, Dragon Pass, Guilin Peaks & Silk Road all based on the Chinese mainland. The Air Superiority game mode is back and five weapons make a return including the L85A2, L96A1, MP7, MTAR-21 & RPK-74M. The expansion also adds two new gadgets, the UCAV & SUAV as well as the addition of two vehicles, the Dirt Bike from the previous game as well as the new Bomber. All five achievements are multiplayer based but they do not all have to be gained on the China Rising maps such as the SUAV kill, most of the assignments can also be completed on any map.
Each achievement can more or less be done in an hour each depending on your skill apart from the Assignments which can take anywhere upwards from 10hrs of gameplay. The assignments require a variety of actions to be taken, some more difficult than others such as gaining different ribbons, kills with air vehicles, weapons & gadgets as well as getting different types of weapon kills in a single round etc.
Second Assault DLC
All five achievements are multiplayer based that are tied to the maps in this expansion. Each achievement can more or less be done in an hour each depending on your skill. You will require some flying experience, some patience and possibly a little luck to complete this DLC.
Naval Strike DLC
(Full RoadMap foundHERE)
Hello soldiers and welcome back for the 3rd expansion pack for Battlefield 4. This time we shall be taking to the seas with an expansion pack that is orientated towards DICE’s new and improved naval combat. Naval Strike includes 4 new maps; Lost Islands, Nansha Strike, Wave Breaker, and Operation Mortar are all set in the South China Sea. Each will have a variety of environments that will test your combat prowess, ranging from defending fishing villages to storming beachfronts, and everything in-between.
Here are some descriptions for the new maps, taken directly from Battlelog:
- Lost Islands
Starting with Lost Islands, this map focuses around a crashed airplane located near the center of the map. The map itself contains several small islands surrounding the crash site that can be traversed using quad bikes around the whole map, or by using boats to take shortcuts across it. The key to master this map is to control the plane at the crash site, which can be blown open to give infantry some much needed cover. Another special area of this map is the cave blanketed by a waterfall, as it provides visual cover for patrolling boats and helicopters.
- Nansha Strike
A very boat heavy map with several bases spread out in the water to battle it out on, while at the same time allowing total infantry control of the middle areas. The central area provides a lot of cover for infantry and is a death trap for water vehicles if they try to enter it via the small rivers. The surrounding bases can be captured from the water, with some offering big bases in the middle of the sea for infantry. This is where the more powerful vehicles spawn, which makes them key to own and control.
- Wave Breaker
A unique submarine base hidden in the middle mountain allows for tight close quarter combat, but it also has wide canals where it’s possible to do drive-bys with the attack boats to add extra mayhem to the mix. The middle area has many different Levolution possibilities. You can for instance bring down a submarine from its support and turn off the lights in the surrounding corridors. It’s also possible to stop boats from entering the area by closing the four flood gates and blocking the direct path from the bases on the two sides. The middle island will give players intense fights in Deathmatch modes.
- Operation Mortar
A vacation paradise turned into a war zone, with wooden huts surrounding the islands. There is an old fort on the top of the mountain, which provides a great overview over the whole map. It also gives the team owning it a fast way to capture the other bases on the main island. In Rush, this levels starts from the bottom of the islands and goes up towards the fort, providing interesting and fun vertical gameplay which will provide a big challenge for attackers.
A new game mode is also introduced, new to BF4, in the form of Carrier Assault. A throw-back to Battlefield 2142's Titan mode, Carrier Assault will challenge you to bring down the enemy aircraft carrier by capturing a series of bases and launching missiles at the opposing ship. All this destruction will be helped by the addition of the ACV Hovercraft, capable of effortlessly travelling over land as it does water, and 5 new weapons and 2 new gadgets; the AR160, SR-2, AWS, SR338, and the SRW40 with the M320 3GL and the new Anti-Air Mine.
Overall, the new Naval Strike DLC is very entertaining as the game type and the maps themselves are very well created and add hours upon hours of replay value to Battlefield's already addicting Multiplayer experience. This list will task you with testing out the new mode, new vehicle and some new weaponry with deadly efficiency. It will also encourage you to rediscover your adventurous streak. But compared to past DLC achievements, these ones are rather easy, particularly because there is no “Complete all assignments” achievement. The list will not take too long just by playing through the expansion and casually attempting the achievements, but of course, can be sped up by boosting with friends or partners from the new Sessions program HERE.
In the end, completing the DLC will be a breeze, just like Second Assault, and then you can focus all your time on enjoying the maps themselves!
Dragon's Teeth DLC
Welcome back to the battlefield, soldiers. This time, the Dragon’s Teeth DLC expansion brings the fight to our doorstep on four brand new maps: Sunken Dragon, Lumpini Garden, Pearl Market, and Propaganda. These four maps are designed specifically for urban combat among modern high rises, pristine parks, bustling alleyways, a floating restaurant and grey concrete. In addition to this, the new Chainlink gametype adds another layer of depth and strategy to the multiplayer mayhem while the R.A.W.R allows players to control an unmanned ground vehicle that is mounted with a machine gun and grenade launcher. Finally, with ten new assignments to tackle, you will need to utilize a variety of weapons, gametypes, and gadgets in order to complete all five achievements tied to this expansion.
In order to complete all of the achievements within this DLC, you are going to have to dedicate a significant number of hours to multiple gametypes, weapon classes, and the four new Dragon's Teeth maps. First off, "Link Repeater" will most likely be the first achievement you unlock for winning two Chainlink matches on any map. If these victories were achieved on two of the new Dragon's Teeth maps, you will then unlock "The Metropolitan" shortly after for completing a match of any gametype on all four Dragon's Teeth maps.
While playing on these four maps, make sure to keep an eye out for the new RAWR gadget. If you are skilled enough to achieve five kills with the RAWR in a single match, then the "RC Assassin" achievement will be yours. Speaking of new gadgets and equipment, in order to unlock "Bulletproof. Sort Of...," you will need to complete the Vanguard Assignment in order to unlock the Ballistic Shield for the Support Class. Once this piece of equipment is usable, simply pull it out and use it for a total of five minutes to get the aforementioned achievement out of the way.
Finally, "Street Fighter" is going to be the last achievement you unlock. This achievement carries with it the requirement of completing all ten of the new assignments. Between achieving Sniper Rifle and PDW Ribbons, Mortar Kills, Savior Kills, Spot Assists, a number of other combat bonuses, as well utilizing the RAWR and Unica 6 Magnum, all while playing a total of ten hours on the Dragon's Teeth maps and achieving the impossible of winning a match of Chainlink with fifty tickets or fewer remaining, it soon becomes evident that completing the ten assignments in this DLC will be quite the project. With enough persistence, strategy, teamwork, and skill, these assignments should be completed within ten to twelve hours.
Final Stand DLC
(Full RoadMap HERE)
Welcome to the final expansion pack for Battlefield 4, Final Stand. This DLC brings players four new maps all based on the Siberian lands of Russia; Giants of Karelia, Hammerhead, Hangar 21 & Operation Whiteout. The pack also introduces two new weapons; the Rorsch MK-1 railgun and Phantom bow as well as four new vehicles; the Snowmobile, HT-95 Levkov Hover Tank, Shipunov 42 and the Pod Launcher and in addition to this, various new gadgets, attachments, dogs tags and skins are included.
The achievements are of a similar sense as previous BF4 DLC instalments, there is an achievement to play all on four new maps, three kill-related achievements and finally assignments make a return, whilst most you will earn through natural play, some may require some time and patience. There is also one assignment to play the new maps for 10 hours, minimising the completion time for this DLC.
Overall, this DLC offers a fantastic batch of new maps and entertaining gameplay to all of us hardened Battlefield fans. Although the Chainlink matches may seem very underwhelming compared to Conquest or Rush, the strategy and teamwork involved in order to achieve victory leaves it as a compelling new gametype to tinker with. Whether you are messing around with the R.A.W.R., blocking bullets with the new Ballistic Shield, learning the ins and outs of the new maps, or grinding out those ten new assignments, this DLC offers plenty of additional Multiplayer hours to the game and is easily the best add-on thus far!

Assignment 7 -Mother Of All Bombs
Prerequisite - Safe Raiding
On the China Rising Maps there is a trailer that will show a plane on it from time to time, normally near location “C” on PS3 and "D" on PS4 in conquest matches. When it shows this plane, approach the trailer from the side with the stairs and hit when prompted to enter the trailer.
Now in the bomber find some targets to kill. To release the JADM, find your target(s) and use to release the weapon. It does take a few moments to get there, so lead your target if it is moving.
I found this very difficult to get kills as I got many hits, but no kills (Normal Mode), so I found another way to accomplish the requirement. The trick to this is to set some mines around before you head for the plane. As long as you are in the bombing run when they kill someone you will be given credit for achieving this.
Another strategy here is to bomb the trailer you enter for the bomber. Many times enemies will be waiting for you to come out and make themselves an easy target. Just be careful, if you are in hardcore you can kill teammates or yourself if you leave the trailer before the bombs hit.
After playing more and more hours, here is another strategy. When you get in the bomber let your first 3 missiles fly right away in the direction of where you think the enemy is. In the mean time start taping your "Spot" button and listen for the audible telltale of where the enemies are. If you let your missiles go early enough you will reload before fully crossing the map and get off another 3 shots on the same bomber pass

Battlefield 4 final bomber kill for all China Rising assignments complete - YouTube
You also need to destroy an enemy bomber as well, this can be done with any weapon you are comfortable shooting a plane down with. I personally prefer using the Mobile AA with Missiles.
Reward - Cruise Missile
Assignment 8 - Multi Talent
You need to have your classes ready so you can swap between kits as needed. I would recommend doing this in rush or conquest. In a single round you need to get a kill with a sniper rifle, assault rifle, LMG, and a hand grenade.
Now here it the pain, it is a single round! This does not need to be done on a China Rising Map, it can be any map or any mode. If you are a rush defender they come to you and if you lose your life, ohh well. This is a personal choice one, you have to do it with the weapons and mode you are comfortable in.
I started with the grenade as it is the hardest one for me to get.
Reward - MTAR-21
Assignment 9 - I'm Dynamite
Prerequisite - Eyes in the Sky
Here come those pesky bombers again. To earn this you will need to earn the Bomber Delivery ribbon 3 times, get 20 UCAV kills and score a multi-kill.
To get your bomber ribbon, the best map appears to be silk road as there are a lot of tanks to kill and give you an opportunity to kill 2 for 1. It takes 2 missiles to kill a tank in hardcore. A lot of players try to come to the middle base in the map where the bomber trailer is, so you may want to spam that area when you get the bomber and then give it a chance to reload. The other maps are a little harder to get multiple kills in a game, but once you get the cruise missile (15 bomb kills) you will also have another weapon available to you by hitting
If you are going to boost this, get 3-4 players on the other team to take a LAV or helicopter to a per-defined spot on the map and hit them hard with the bombs and you can cut down on the time for this.
There are mixed emotions on the UCAV as it is very overpowered at this time (Since Patched). You can either fly it directly into people or use the remote detonation function and frag people with it. With the frag mode you will have an easier time killing people in hardcore.
Video Intended for how to use, the reload option was patched by path 1.05
Here is a video from M-Easy on the UCAV:
Battlefield 4 UCAV cheesiness - YouTube
December 18th, 2013 - DICE Update
"Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for "road killing" opponents."
Reward - Air Burst
Assignment 10 - Middle King
Prerequisite - Safe Raiding
Nothing Major to this one, just play China Rising Maps for 10 hours, get 5 five kill streaks, and roadkill someone with the SUAV. To complete this you must get a kill with the bomber, so see Death From Above first. This will be available to complete once you complete the assignment “Safe Raiding”.
If you are going for all the trophies you will have to get a kill with the SUAV Mini Kamikaze. To get your kill with the SUAV I would recommend that you get your kill in hardcore as this will be a Road kill and in normal servers you will have a harder time killing someone with it. This weapon is available to the recon soldier.

You just have to play to earn this one.
Reward - Middle King Dog Tag
