At the moment I can only track it to criteria like Measuring StatEvent_KillWith_X_As_Y. Not to say the specifics can't be tracked with what data I have, its just a big pain in the butt to do so. lol Once we have more data, like the pre patch for dragon's teeth it would be much easier and I'll probably do it at that point if it isn't already up on battlelog.

Thanks.

Knowing it's DICE:LA and from the China Rising experience, I have a feeling the assignments will be BS as usual. -_- Inb4 "Get 100 kills with the EOD bot" and/or "Get three headshots with one handgun bullet"

After working with Element, this is what I have come up with so far. I make no guarantees.


I'm fairly positive that none of these assignments require you to finish them in one round. These assignments use "CriteriaType_GLOBAL_AllTimeTotal" instead of "CriteriaType_IAR_InARound."




XP3 AS01 Unica6 "Big Splash"

-Activate the floodgates on Waterfront (not in a round)
-Get 5 kills while swimming (not in a round)



XP3 AS02 BD "Lions and Tigers and Bears"

-Kill 10 Supports as Assault (not in a round)

-Kill 10 Recons as Assault (not in a round)



XP3 AS03 MPX "Not the Weakest Link"

-Obtain 2 PDW Ribbons (not in a round)
-Form a New Link in Chainlink 10 times (not in a round)

XP3 AS09 Killjoy Dogtag "Killjoy"

No, you referenced something from your limited knowledge base on the subject ;)

Kind of hard to have this talk with someone whose top kills with weapons and vehicles is the v40 mini, mortar and EOD bot....

I have thousands of kills with the AEK, ACE23, FAMAS & CZ3A1 and other high ROF guns but I like the slower more measured playstyle of the Scarh better. Now that the competitiveness of that gun is gone I am understandably pissed.

@NoctyrneSAGA Your highest killing weapon is the V40 mini and your accuracy is terrible across the board (LMGs are pretty high on your list bro) - just get all your assignments and 5 service stars and for the rest please please piss off.

XP3 AS01 Unica6

-Something to do with a game mode once (not in a round)
-Get 5 kills while swimming (not in a round)
Game mode may or may not be annoying. Swimming should be fun. C4 some boats maybe? Swimming combat isn't that common for me but 5 kills isn't too bad.
XP3 AS02 BD

-Kill 10 Supports as Assault (not in a round)
-Kill 10 Engineers as Assault (not in a round)
-Kill 10 US Recons as Assault (not in a round)
By far the most bullshit out of these assignments. Hunting certain classes may take a round or it may take 10. Feck. At least the Bulldog looks bad enough that I probably won't use it past 500 Kills.
XP3 AS03 MPX

-Obtain 2 r16p Ribbons (not in a round)
-Form a New Link in Chainlink 10 times (not in a round)
-Follow 10 Squad Orders
10 Squad Orders shouldn't be too stupid, especially if you're a squad leader- assuming those aren't "In a round." I'm guessing ribbons are for PDW? Hopefully forming a "Chainlink" isn't too much of a pain in the ass.
XP3 AS04 CS5

-Obtain 2 r13r Ribbons (not in a round)
-10 Squad Beacon Spawns on your beacon (not in a round)
-20 Spot Assists (not in a round)
Assuming those are sniper ribbons that sounds reasonable.
XP3 AS08 DE

-Obtain 20 Headshots using the Unica6
I had a hunch this would have to do with the Unica6. At least it'll be decently challenging for people not good with handguns. Very S-TAC-esque.



Even after BF3 and BF4 I'm still pissed that we have to grind unlocks for things we PAY FOR. Well, at least none of them involve jets. I STILL don't have a UCAV.

@revic_crew

Yes.



You will receive a "Linkbreaker Ribbon" when you break 4 of the enemy team's links.

You will receive a "Linkmaker Ribbon" when you create 5 links.


And there's a whole bunch more I'm trying to figure out.



If I'm reading this right, then they have a separate tracker for the Ribbons and the Assignments that require you to make and break links which I find strange.

Anyways, there's the Chainlink Winner Medal that requires 50 Chainlink Winner Ribbons, Chainlink Service Star, Chainlink Dogtag,

There's also a thumbnail for the Chainlink video tutorial.


So yeah, it's a new game mode.

Yeah, very STAC-ish assignments. As much as I loved that piatol, the grinding for it was annoying.
