While I'm playing the game on PS4, pretty much everything here should apply equally to PS4, Xbox One and PC. My main aims for this guide are to give explanations and tips for each trophy; provide a timeline for all trophies, collectibles and unlocks in the single- player campaign (see Section 06) and share some trivia about trophy names, chapter titles, weapons, etc. I've been a Battlefield fan(boy) since Bad Company 2 (BFBC2) and elsewhere on GameFAQs you can find my trophy guides and gun guides for BF3, BF4 and Hardline plus my complete guide to Star Wars Battlefront - another recent multiplayer shooter made by Battlefield's lead developers, DICE. There are no significant >SPOILERS< in this guide but by necessity I do discuss the specific events and locations of the campaign chapters. If you found this guide useful you can show your support by using the recommend function. If you have any feedback (especially suggestions for additions or improvements) then please feel free to contact me via email or GameFAQs message. This guide is designed to be viewed using a monospaced (non-proportional or fixed-width) font, preferably Courier New. Some sections of the document will display incorrectly if you're using a proportional font like Times New Roman. .------------.-----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 02 | TROPHIES LIST s02 | '------------'-----------------------------------------------------------------' The base game (without DLC) has a total of only 31 achievements on Xbox One and PC or 32 trophies on PS4 including the prestigious platinum. The trophies are listed below in the default PS4 menu sequence. For once these have actually been presented in a fairly logical order so I've used the same sequence in the main body of this guide. To jump directly to the entry for any specific trophy in the guide just copy the trophy name from here and use your browser's Find function (Ctrl+F). 01 World War One Hero [Platinum] Multiplayer Trophies (see Section 03) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 02 Operations [Bronze/10G] 03 Counter-Sniper [Bronze/10G] 04 Play the Objective [Bronze/10G] 05 Warbonds [Bronze/10G] 06 Corporal [Bronze/10G] 07 Assault Enlistment [Gold/80G] 08 Medic Enlistment [Gold/80G] 09 Scout Enlistment [Gold/80G] 10 Support Enlistment [Gold/80G] 11 Decorated [Silver/40G] Single-Player Trophies (see Section 05) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 12 Friends in High Places [Bronze/10G] 13 Nothing is Written [Bronze/10G] 14 Through Mud and Blood [Bronze/10G] 15 Avanti Savoia!

BFBC2 had twenty (including several that were quite fun to do) but then BF3 had nine, BF4 had five and Hardline had only three! BF1 finally bucks that trend by having a total of ten multiplayer trophies in the base game, although sadly they're still lacking in originality and the majority are essentially just simple XP grinds. No "online pass" is required to play but on the PS4 you will need a Playstation Plus (PS+) subscription to play online. This also grants the benefits of cloud back-up for save files and six PS3/PS4/Vita games every month. 01 World War One Hero [Platinum] "Obtain all trophies" You get this automatically after meeting the requirements of all 31 other trophies in the base game - ten come from multiplayer and the remaining 21 can be earned in the single-player campaign (see Section 05). As usual, trophies from expansion packs are not required for the platinum. 02 Operations [Bronze/10G] "Win 1 Operation in multiplayer" Operations is the new showcase mode in BF1 with matches that span multiple maps and often last for over an hour. The mode plays like a hybrid of Rush and Conquest - on each map the defending team has a series of bases each with two objectives but, instead of having to destroy them like the telegraphs (or M-COMs) in Rush, the attackers must capture them like flags in Conquest. The attacking team has a limited number of respawn tickets and if these are depleted before they can fully capture the current base they'll need to try again but this time with the support of one of the Behemoths (e.g. armoured train). If the attackers fail three times in total then they lose the match. At launch the base game featured four Operations - entitled Kaiserschlacht, Conquer Hell, Iron Walls and Oil of Empires - but you only need to get a win on one Operation for the trophy/achievement. Just keep playing, try to get on a good team and be sure to do your bit to support the war effort, soldier! Originally both 40-player and 64-player servers were available on Operations mode but the smaller 20v20 option was removed in the October 2017 update. The June 2018 patch added Shock Operations which have 40 players on a single map. This may not count towards this trophy so it's probably best to stick with the standard Operations mode for this. 03 Counter-Sniper [Bronze/10G] "Using a bolt-action rifle, kill an enemy Scout in multiplayer" The sniper rifles are exclusive to the Scout class in BF1. Your starting weapon is the SMLE* Mk.III (Marksman variant) but you should be able to use any of them for this and I can confirm that you can even use the Russian 1895 which is a lever-action rifle. The trophy should pop the first time you get the new Counter Sniping bonus (25 pts) for killing an enemy Scout while playing as a Scout yourself. You should also get the 'Camouflage' codex entry at the same time. Despite the name of this trophy, I don't think there's any minimum distance requirement so just play as the Scout class and use your primary - pretty soon one of your kills will be on an enemy player using the same class. If you want to be more proactive about it you could look out for the tell-tale glint of a sniper scope and either counter-snipe at long range or flank them and get an instant kill with a headshot. (See trophy #09 below for a basic summary of your one-hit kill potential.) *"SMLE" stands for "Short, Magazine, Lee-Enfield". It featured a 25" barrel compared to the standard 30" barrel of the original 1895 MLE model. The Lee-Enfield No.1 Mk.III rifle was used as the basis for the Jawa ion blaster prop in the first Star Wars film so it also appears (as the "CA-87") in DICE's recent multiplayer shooter, Star Wars Battlefront. 04 Play the Objective* [Bronze/10G] "Complete 25 Squad Orders in multiplayer" The squad leader system returned in BF1 and has had some nice refinements made since BF4 and Hardline. The player marked with a star in your squad list is the squad leader. They can place an order on an objective (for example a flag in Conquest mode) by either aiming at the objective marker and tapping R1 (RB on Xbox) or holding R1 and selecting Order Squad followed by the objective label (A, B, C, etc). (Since there are no objective locations in Team Deathmatch mode it is not possible to give or complete squad orders in TDM.) The order will be indicated by four flashing green marks on the objective marker and it will also be displayed as text with the objective's label and name (e.g. monastery, burning mill, etc) on the left side of your screen. The squad order can be completed by successfully performing an action on the marked objective, for example capturing the Conquest flag for your team. If you're in a squad but your squad leader is not giving orders then there are three ways to become a squad leader yourself. Firstly you can open the squad menu (by pressing Square (or X on Xbox) from the respawn screen) and then use the Leave Squad and Create Squad options - this will start a new squad with you as the leader. You should set your squad to "public" so that others can join it (giving the benefits of additional spawn locations and squad-based bonuses) but you don't actually need to have any squad members. Secondly you can hold R1 (or RB on Xbox) to open the commo-rose and select the Request Order option. Since the Version 1.04 patch BF1 has the Hardline feature whereby the first squad member to request an order will be promoted to squad leader after 60 seconds if the current leader gives no orders. Thirdly - if you're using a mic - you can just speak to the squad leader in squad chat and ask them nicely to go to the squad menu, pick Manage Squad, select you and pick Promote Player to instantly make you the squad leader. If you place an order on an objective (e.g. Conquest flag) that is currently neutral or held by the enemy it will be an "Attack" order and this will be completed once your team captures the objective. Conversely if you put an order onto a friendly objective it will be a "Defend" order and this will be completed if your team retains control for one minute. In both cases the order can complete (with a handy XP bonus) regardless of whether you have any other players in your squad or if your squad-mates are at the objective. So you should be proactive - monitor the objective markers and put orders on objectives (e.g. Conquest flags) that are either about to be captured by your team or are likely to remain under your team's control. *All true Battlefielders know that it's very important to PTFO. :) General Progression ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ BF1 uses the standard system for levelling where kills and other actions earn you XP (experience points). You start unranked (rank 0) and progress through a series of numbered ranks each time your XP total passes specific thresholds. (See Section 04 for general tips on earning XP and progressing faster.) Your progress towards the next multiplayer rank is shown on the Soldier tab of the main menu and on the Personal tab of the end-of-round screen. These also show an approximation of how long it will take for you to reach the next rank based on your average score per minute (score/min or SPM). You can also view your levelling progress online on the following websites: http://battlefieldtracker.com http://battlefield.com/companion The original level-cap was rank 100 which requires exactly 20 million XP. The following two trophies relate to your overall multiplayer rank. (The five in the next subsection below are based on your separate ranks for each class.) 05 Warbonds [Bronze/10G] "Earn 450 Warbonds in multiplayer" Like Battlefield Hardline, BF1 features a flexible currency-based system for unlocking weapons and gadgets. The currency is warbonds* which you'll earn when you level-up your general multiplayer rank. You don't get any warbonds when you progress from rank 0 to rank 1 but after that you'll get 90 warbonds each time you level-up from rank 2 (Private II) to rank 6 (Private VI) so that's all you need to do to get 450 warbonds for this trophy/achievement - it's basically just another XP grind. Specifically you need to earn a total of 55,000 XP to get to multiplayer rank 6. Rank 1 - 1,000 XP Rank 2 - 4,000 XP Rank 3 - 10,000 XP Rank 4 - 10,000 XP Rank 5 - 15,000 XP Rank 6 - 15,000 XP For reference I achieved this after about two hours of objective play. Some guns and gadgets are available to purchase as soon as you have enough warbonds to pay for them but some others are locked to your class rank (see below), for example to unlock the Model 10-A (Slug variant) shotgun you need to reach Assault rank 3 and then buy it for 200 warbonds. Generally primary weapons cost 200 warbonds, sidearms cost 150 and gadgets/grenades cost 60. You'll stop receiving warbonds after rank 70 because by that point you'll have earned enough warbonds to buy every unlock in the base game. (New guns in the DLC expansions are unlocked by completing assignments instead.) *A country would issue warbonds for sale in order to control inflation after issuing extra money to fund their war efforts. Britain, Germany, America, Canada and Austria-Hungary all used similar schemes during World War I. 06 Corporal [Bronze/10G] "Reach Rank 10 in multiplayer" After getting your 450 warbonds by rank 6 for the previous trophy you just need to keep playing until you hit rank 10. For this you'll need to earn a further 90,000 XP on top of the 55,000 XP you needed for rank 6. Rank 7 - 20k XP Rank 8 - 20k XP Rank 9 - 25k XP Rank 10 - 25k XP For reference I achieved this after about four hours of objective play. Class Progression ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ All recent Battlefield titles have four infantry classes. In Battlefield 1 these are Medic, Assault, Support and Scout (see trophies #07 to #10 for details). Each of these four standard classes (plus the new Tanker, Pilot, Cavalry and Elite classes) have their own ranks which are separate from the other ones and different from your main overall multiplayer rank. You can level-up a class simply by earning XP while using that class in matches but keep in mind that your class choice will be overridden whenever you spawn directly from the respawn screen into a new tank or plane or onto a new horse (in which case you get the Tanker, Pilot or Cavalry class respectively). However if you spawn into a Behemoth (e.g. armoured train), spawn into a vehicle as a passenger or spawn as infantry and then enter a vehicle (or mount a horse) then all XP will still be credited to your standard infantry class. This can be a great way to farm kills or capture an objective from relative safety. (See Section 04 for general tips on earning XP and progressing faster.) You can view your progress from the main menu under Soldier \ Weapons & Gadgets - when you select a class here the bar indicates your progress from your current rank to the next one. You can also see your class ranks on the Loadout tab of your player career pages on the official Battlefield.com website. Some weapons and gadgets are locked by class rank, with many of them becoming available to purchase with warbonds (see trophy #05) at class rank 1, 2 or 3. At launch the maximum rank per class was 10. Several sidearms unlock at rank 10 and each of the four infantry classes has one unique primary weapon unlock too - the Hellriegel 1915 SMG for Assault, the Selbstlader 1906 rifle for Medic, the Huot Automatic machinegun for Support and the Martini-Henry rifle for Scout. You can view the unlocks for each class under Soldier \ Weapons & Gadgets but in order to buy and equip them you'll need to use the Customize screen which you can access by pressing Triangle (or Y on Xbox) from the respawn screen during a match or (since the Version 1.04 patch) off the main menu under either Soldier \ Customize Soldier or Home \ Shortcuts \ Customize Soldier. The Winter Update (Version 1.06) in February 2017 raised the maximum rank for each class to 50. You'll unlock new dogtags as you progress and when you achieve rank 50 in a class you'll also earn new flair for your killcard which is shown to an enemy player after you kill them. (All five of these trophies/achievements were glitched at launch with numerous players failing to receive one or more of them but this issue was fixed in the Version 1.02 patch on 24 October 2016 and they were awarded retrospectively.) 07 Assault Enlistment [Gold/80G] "Reach Assault rank 2 in multiplayer" This requires you to score a total of 100,000 XP using the Assault class. Confusingly BF1's Assault is a close quarters and anti-vehicle specialist more like the Engineer class in previous titles than the usual Assault role. You get submachineguns and shotguns* for short-range combat. A significant change for SMGs in BF1 compared to previous games is that each weapon now has a large multiplier penalty applied to its spread increase on the second shot of a burst so, although single shots at range will be quite accurate, it'll be harder to hit targets at longer ranges with sustained automatic fire. Your default weapon for this class is the MP18 (Trench variant) SMG which fires at 550 RPM (rounds per minute) and has a damage profile that gives a four-hit kill out to 12 metres then a five-hit kill to 22 metres. (Except where stated otherwise, all BTK (bullets to kill) figures in this guide are based on standard shots to the upper torso. Guns stats are taken from Symthic.com (thanks!) and have been revised to reflect the rebalancing to TTK (time to kill) in the January 2018 patch.) If you want more options, the primary weapons of the Tanker and Pilot classes were made available to either Assault or Support in the June 2018 patch. The Assault class got the Frommer Stop Auto and Sawed-Off Shotgun. (You may need to unlock these first with the original classes, for example the Sawed-Off Shotgun requires Tanker rank 10.) Assault gets a selection of gadgets intended primarily for taking out enemy vehicles including tanks. Initially you get the AT (anti-tank) hand grenade (heavy damage against vehicles), anti-tank "rocket gun" (which requires you to either go prone or deploy it on a ledge) and the dynamite (generally handy for blowing stuff up); you can also unlock the anti-tank mines. *In BF1 any faction is free to use the shotguns but in real life the German government made a formal diplomatic complaint against the use of shotguns in WWI on the grounds that these weapons caused "unnecessary suffering" and were therefore in violation of the Hague Convention of 1907. 08 Medic Enlistment [Gold/80G] "Reach Medic rank 2 in multiplayer" This requires you to score a total of 90,000 XP using the Medic class. The Medic class gets a selection of self-loading (semi-auto) rifles which function similarly to DMRs (designated marksman rifles) in recent Battlefield titles. Your starting weapon is the Cei-Rigotti (Factory variant) which fires at up to 299 RPM and gives a three-hit kill out to 54 metres. If you don't like having to tap-tap-tap for your pew-pew-pew then simply press d-pad down to switch your Cei-Rigotti to automatic fire.* Several of the Medic (and Scout) rifles lack detachable magazines and will be reloaded with the most efficient combination of individual cartridges and stripper clips of five rounds, for example after firing three shots you'll load three single rounds or after firing seven you'd load one clip and two cartridges. It's worth remembering that reloading five rounds (with one clip) will usually be quicker than loading three or four! You start with a choice of four gadgets available - the medical syringe (for reviving dead team-mates), medical crate (for healing anyone nearby), bandage pouch (for healing one person on the move) and rifle grenade (with standard fragmentation ammo). You can also unlock the HE (high explosive) and SMK (smoke) variants of the rifle grenade. One nice new feature for BF1 is that you can throw a bandage pouch (or ammo pouch) at a team-mate that needs it by pressing R1/RB when prompted instead of having to take your thumb off the left stick to use the d-pad. You can make lots of points - and really help support your team - by throwing out your heals (pouch or crate) at every available opportunity. *Although it was never adopted or mass-produced, the Cei-Rigotti rifle with its compact design and selective-fire options (semi-auto and full auto) is recognised as an early and significant precursor of the modern assault rifle. 09 Scout Enlistment [Gold/80G] "Reach Scout rank 2 in multiplayer" This requires you to score a total of 60,000 XP using the Scout class. Scout is the sniper class of the game which gets a choice of bolt-action rifles (and one lever-action) for use at medium and long ranges. Battlefield has a ballistic model which includes bullet speed and gravity which causes bullets to drop below your point of aim at long range so you can either aim high to compensate or press d-pad down to "zero" your rifle to counter drop at a specific distance. BF1 also introduced "bullet drag" which causes bullets to fly slower (and drop faster) at longer ranges. All snipers in the base game apart from the Russian 1895 (Trench variant) and M1903 (Experimental variant) do sufficient damage to give a headshot one-hit kill at any range. However BF1 uses novel humped damage profiles for most sniper rifles and everything in the base game apart from the Gewehr M95, 1903 Experimental and 1895 Trench delivers a maximum damage of 100 (enough for a one-hit kill from a chest-shot in Normal mode) over specific distances at medium range, for example your default SMLE Mk.III (Marksman variant) can kill with one shot to the chest at ranges between 40 and 75 metres. Damage charts: http://symthic.com/bf1-weapon-charts?recon=1&sort=Class The Scout class gets a wide range of gadgets. By default you can equip the flare gun (which spots enemies within a radius), K bullets (for damaging vehicles), sniper shield (provides cover when prone), sniper decoy (gives a false target for enemy marksmen), trench periscope (for spotting from behind cover) and the HE (high explosive) anti-personnel tripwire bomb. You can also unlock the flash variant of the flare gun (to disorient enemies) and the GAS (poison gas) and INC (incendiary) versions of the tripwire bomb. If you really don't like using the bolt-action rifles you can make a ton of points from objective actions and squad order bonuses (see trophy #04) and from using your gadgets, especially the powerful spotting flares. I got to Scout rank 2 in around two hours of objective-focused play in Conquest mode, getting beaucoup points from flag caps and supplementing those with squad order bonuses, spotting bonuses from the flare gun and close-quarter kills with my trusty service revolver. (It's high noon!) The sidearms can be fairly handy in close quarters so be sure to pick one that works best for you. The pistols are generally balanced as either "slow and heavy" (revolvers) or "fast and light" (semi-autos) so try them out and see what suits your play style. Remember you can use warbonds earned with one class to buy unlocks for another if you want. At Scout rank 1 you unlock two primary weapons that fire faster and are more suited to shorter ranges. I'm a fan of the lever-action Russian 1895 (Trench variant) which fires at up to 124 RPM and (since the Jan 2018 patch) gives a two-hit kill out to 70 metres. The other option is the M1903 (Experimental variant)* which fires on semi-auto at 359 RPM (since the March 2017 patch) and has a large detachable 40-round mag although that's balanced by a lower damage profile which gives a three-hit kill out to 12 metres. The Hardcore mode option became available on 16 November 2016 and can be accessed from the Custom Games menu. Initially this gave +100% additional bullet damage but that was reduced to +25% in the 13 December 2016 patch, although that's still just enough for most Scout rifles (with 80 max/min damage) to give a one-hit kill on a shot to the upper torso at any distance. *The M1903 was one of several "classics" added to Battlefield Hardline. BF1's Experimental model has been fitted with a Pedersen Device. This was designed to convert the bolt-action .30-06 calibre Springfield 1903 into a semi-automatic rifle firing .30 calibre pistol rounds from a large detachable magazine. Approximately 65,000 units were manufactured in 1918 but the war ended before they could be issued in Europe and most were later destroyed. 10 Support Enlistment [Gold/80G] "Reach Support rank 2 in multiplayer" This requires you to score a total of 100,000 XP using the Support class. The Support class gets machineguns as usual. These now have large first-shot penalty multipliers to spread (like the SMGs) but they also have negative "spread increase per shot" (SIPS) so after the second shot during automatic fire the accuracy will actually improve with every consecutive shot. Your default primary is the Lewis Gun* (Low Weight variant) which fires at 480 RPM, has a large 47-round pan magazine and (since the Jan 2018 patch) gives a four-hit kill out to 12 metres and a five-hit kill beyond that. If you want more options, the primary weapons of the Tanker and Pilot classes were made available to either Assault or Support in the June 2018 patch. The Support class got the P08 Artillerie, Pieper M1893, M1911 Extended, Mle 1903 Extended and C93 Carbine. (You may need to unlock these first in the original classes, for example the M1911 Extended requires Pilot rank 10 and the C93 Carbine needs forty kills with FT light tank.) You start with a choice of seven gadgets - the ammo crate (to supply ammo to anyone nearby), ammo pouch (to resupply one person on the move), the repair tool (to fix friendly vehicles - or damage enemy ones!), the AIR (airburst) and HE (high explosive) variants of the portable mortar and the HE and FRG (fragmentation) versions of the crossbow grenade-launcher which was added in the 13 December 2016 patch. You can also unlock the limpet charge (a powerful sticky bomb with a 3-second fuse). You can make lots of points - and really help support your team - by throwing out your ammo resupplies (pouch or crate) at every available opportunity. *A heavily modified version of the Lewis Gun appears in Battlefield Hardline as the "Syndicate Gun" - see my Hardline firearms guide for more details of the weapon and the complicated procedure to unlock it. The Lewis Gun was also used as the basis for some of the heavy blasters used by the Imperial landing party on Tatooine in Star Wars so it also appears in DICE's Star Wars Battlefront game (as the T-21 and T-21B). 11 Decorated [Silver/40G] "Reach rank 1 with all 4 infantry classes in multiplayer" Obviously you'll pick up this one on your way to achieving the previous four trophies for levelling each of the classes to rank 2. For reference I achieved this after around ten hours of play at which point I already had Assault up to class rank 4 I think. (Also I did this before the introduction of XP boosts to battlepacks.) .------------.-----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 04 | XP TIPS s04 | '------------'-----------------------------------------------------------------' Here are some quick tips for maximizing your XP from multiplayer matches: o Squad XP Boosts The 11 November 2016 patch added XP boosts which can appear as a rare bonus "Legendary" drop in a battlepack (in addition to the gun or vehicle skin). If you have an XP boost available you'll have the option of activating it on the Squads menu during a match. The Squads screen also shows a double arrow symbol next to any squad where a member has a boost active already. Every player in a squad that has an active squad XP boost will receive 100% extra score (double XP!) for 60 minutes. This seems to be applied at the end of each round so it's probably best to stay in a match until it finishes. It's worth checking the Squads menu several times during a match to see if there's a squad with an active boost and a spare slot for you to join. o XP Events Occasionally DICE will run a double XP event, sometimes to coincide with the release of a DLC and often limited to players with Premium subscriptions. Check the official Battlefield Twitter account (twitter.com/battlefield) for announcements of XP events. o Squad Orders You can pick up loads of bonuses from using squad orders (see trophy #04). If you use the Request Order option on the commo-rose (R1/RB) it'll remind your squad leader to place an order - and if they fail to issue one you will take their place and then you can start giving orders yourself. o Objective Actions BF1 encourages objective-focused play by awarding large XP bonuses for players who successfully complete objective actions such as capturing a Conquest flag, arming a telegraph in Rush mode, etc. If you're present for the full neutralisation and capture of a Conquest flag and have a squad order on it too you can often make around 1,000 XP off it. This is more effective on a large open Conquest map with four or more flags where the turnover rate on the capture points is higher. If you want to earn some easy XP with a class you don't enjoy playing then be sure to select it at the start of a Conquest match (when you can usually get at least two quick flag caps) or when you spawn onto a squad-mate or vehicle where an enemy flag is being captured. The same applies when you spawn into a Behemoth vehicle too - especially the armoured train on the maps where it can be used to capture Conquest flags repeatedly (unless the driver is clueless). o Match Wins BF1 further rewards objective-focused play (and encourages players to stay in matches until the end) by applying XP multipliers after a match, for example the winning team in Conquest gets a x1.25 bonus for a minor victory or x1.5 for a major win (when there's a big score difference between the two teams). o Medals Previously BF1 had a new system for medals where you could only work towards one medal at a time - you had to select one medal from a list of five. This was overhauled in the November 2017 update and now you can make progress on any of the current medals without having to nominate one. Originally you received 1,000 XP for each completed requirement and 5,000 XP for the final one but now you get 5,000 XP per requirement and 25,000 XP at the end so there's a lot more incentive to complete medals now. o Ribbons The Winter Update in February 2017 introduced a system of ribbons which work much like the coins in Battlefield Hardline, the accomplishments in Star Wars Battlefront or the ribbons in Battlefield 4 of course. Each ribbon is worth 500 XP and can be earned by performing a specific action a certain number of times in one match. Unlike the BF1 medals, all ribbons are always active - you don't need to select one to work on. A full list of the available ribbons and their requirements can be found under Soldier \ Ribbons off the game's main menu. The initial set included ribbons for getting five kills with the same weapon category or seven kills with the same infantry class (so you're rewarded for sticking with one class). The Spring Update in April 2017 added nineteen new ribbons including several that reward useful actions like repairs, revives, heals, resupplies, spot assists, squad spawns and vehicle destroys. The Nivelle Nights update in June 2017 added a further four medals. o Elite Codex Entries The Winter Update also added special "Elite" entries to the weapons section of the codex list. Each one relates to a specific weapon and you can unlock its extended codex article by getting 500 kills with that weapon. Each one you complete earns you a sweet 25,000 XP bonus too. The available Elite codex entries are listed under Soldier \ Codex. If you track your progress carefully you can activate a squad XP boost when you're just a few kills short of the 500 and then get 50,000 XP instead! If you don't have a boost available then stop using that particular gun until there's a squad you can join with an active boost. o Service Assignments The Russian DLC patch in September 2017 added the service assignments which are used to unlock the specialisations (perks) added in the same update. Each assignment in the first tier is worth between 30k and 50k XP. o Service Stars If you stick to using the same gun, gadget or vehicle you'll get a service star and a 5,000 XP bonus each time you get another 100 kills with it. o Gadgets Each class has gadgets which can be used to support your team-mates and earn you some XP at the same time. The Medic's heals, Support's ammo and Scout's spotting flares are all pretty much essential choices. o Squad Actions If you stay with your squad (the players marked green in the default colour scheme) - especially when playing as Medic or Support - you'll earn additional points from certain actions such as heals, revives, ammo resupplies, etc. o Vehicle Destroys and Multi-Kills With the various bonuses for critical hits, vehicle destruction, kills and multi-kills you can make a good chunk of points off vehicle hunting, although sadly since the January 2018 patch you can no longer stack AT mines. :( o Planes, Trains and Automobiles If you're good at using the tanks or planes then they're a decent way to earn XP but remember that spawning into a new vehicle as the driver gives you the Tanker or Pilot class instead of your selected infantry class. The Behemoths can be used to earn XP too, especially the armoured train which gives a secure position from which to both cap flags and farm kills. Even the humble cars can be quite handy as you can use them to move between Conquest flags quickly, getting several caps in a short period of time. .------------.-----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 05 | SINGLE-PLAYER TROPHIES s05 | '------------'-----------------------------------------------------------------' A minimum of one campaign playthrough is required for trophy completion - you need to beat the game on Hard difficulty and this is available from the start. The chapter select function allows you to replay chapters in order to find any outstanding collectibles or complete any challenges you skipped or missed. You're free to decide how you want to play the game though. You could play on Easy first to learn the missions and focus on collectibles and then progress onto Hard, or you could do a playthrough on Normal and then do Hard and then replay chapters on Easy to complete any remaining challenges. If you're going for the platinum (or 100% completion on Xbox/PC) then you should have a good awareness of what you need to do for the single-player trophies. In general you need to complete all the chapters of each story, find all the field manuals (collectibles) and complete the challenges on each mission to unlock all of the campaign's codex entries. You also need to get a total of ten kills using melee and a further five kills using dynamite. In the chapter 'Breakdown' (in the first war story) you need to find a sword and get a kill with it and in 'Young Men's Work' (in the fifth war story) you need to kill all three enemy officers using melee attacks. See the Trophy Trail (see Section 06) for a complete summary of everything you need to accomplish in each individual chapter. Some of the trophies and challenges are mutually exclusive so you will need to use checkpoint restarts or chapter replays in order to get all of them. For example the challenges require you to kill one of the officers in 'Young Men's Work' with a bolt-action rifle and another with a tank whereas the trophy wants you to kill all three of them using melee. War Story Completion ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The single-player campaign consists of the short prologue 'Storm of Steel' and five self-contained "war stories" each comprised of multiple chapters. Every war story has one trophy for completing all the chapters within it. You can do this on any difficulty but remember that you'll need to complete the campaign (all chapters) on Hard diff for 'The War to End All Wars' (trophy #27). 12 Friends in High Places [Bronze/10G] "Complete Friends in High Places" This is the second of five war stories in the campaign. 13 Nothing is Written* [Bronze/10G] "Complete Nothing is Written" This is the fifth of five war stories in the campaign. *"Nothing is written" is a line spoken by the eponymous T.E. Lawrence (played by Peter O'Toole) in the 1962 movie epic (3½ hrs!) 'Lawrence of Arabia'. 14 Through Mud and Blood* [Bronze/10G] "Complete Through Mud and Blood" This is the first of five war stories in the campaign. *The British Army's Royal Tank Regiment, originally founded as the Tank Corps in 1916, is the oldest tank unit in the world. Their regimental colours are brown, red and green which were later agreed to represent a typical armour operation: "From mud, through blood to the green fields beyond." 15 Avanti Savoia!* [Bronze/10G] "Complete Avanti Savoia!" This is the third of five war stories in the campaign. *"Avanti Savoia!" was a battle-cry used by Italian troops. The royal house of Savoia originally ruled a small region (now Savoy in south-east France) but expanded over time until it reigned over the whole Kingdom of Italy from 1861 (after unification) to 1946 (with the formation of the republic). 16 The Runner* [Bronze/10G] "Complete The Runner" This is the four of five war stories in the campaign. *Although radio, field telephones, semaphore, signal lamps, homing pigeons and dogs were also used for relaying messages during WWI, human runners were used extensively at the front. The most famous runner was Adolf Hitler who was present at major battles at Ypres, The Somme, Arras and Passchendaele. Codex Completion ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The game's "codex" is a World War I encyclopaedia with over 200 unlockable entries (concise text articles) filed under five categories - The Weapons, The War, The Vehicles, The Tactics and The World. You can view your unlocked pages from the main menu under Soldier \ Codex. When you select a locked entry it will show the requirement to unlock it. A total of 53 codex entries can be unlocked in the campaign by completing challenges and by finding all the field manuals (collectibles) within a chapter. Your progress will save immediately after unlocking a codex entry so if you're doing a chapter replay specifically to get it you can quit out right away. (The remaining 145 codex articles are unlocked by completing a range of basic requirements while playing in online multiplayer matches.) Refer to the Trophy Trail (see Section 06) for details of how to unlock all the codex entries in each chapter of the campaign. 17 Taking down Giants [Silver/40G] "Unlock all codex entries in Friends in High Places" This is the second of five war stories in the campaign. 18 All Men Dream* [Silver/40G] "Unlock all codex entries in Nothing is Written" This is the fifth of five war stories in the campaign. *This trophy is named for a quote from 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom', Lawrence of Arabia's book describing his experiences during the 1916-18 Arab Revolt: "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. This I did." 19 Sound of Thunder [Silver/40G] "Unlock all codex entries in Through Mud and Blood" This is the first of five war stories in the campaign. 20 Conquering the Mountains* [Silver/40G] "Unlock all codex entries in Avanti Savoia!" This is the third of five war stories in the campaign. *Sometimes it took lines of two thousand men to draw giant artillery pieces up into the mountains of northern Italy. This is illustrated in the painting known as 'Conquering the Mountains' by Cyrus Cuneo. 21 The Hills of Gallipoli [Silver/40G] "Unlock all codex entries in The Runner" This is the fourth of five war stories in the campaign. Feats ¯¯¯¯¯ There are two trophies for achieving certain types of kills during the campaign and another two for accomplishments in specific chapters. 22 Up Close and Personal [Bronze/10G] "Perform a melee kill on 10 enemies anywhere in the campaign" You can press R3 (right stick) to perform a melee attack, however personally I always prefer to use the Soldier Sticks "Alternate" setting which switches the functions of R3 and Circle (B on Xbox). This allows you to crouch and go prone without taking your thumb off the stick and it gives a more positive and reliable button input for melee. The most effective way to use melee is to creep up on an enemy and attack them from behind for a one-hit takedown kill. You're very likely to get this trophy without making any special effort. There are several sections of the campaign where you can use stealth tactics and one of the challenges in the 'Be Safe' chapter requires you to get ten melee kills so those alone would be sufficient for the trophy. When using stealth remember to stay crouched (or prone) to make your soldier harder to spot, avoid sprinting near enemies and press the touchpad (or Back button on Xbox?) to throw an empty cartridge case to distract an enemy - lure them away from you so you can sneak up behind them. 23 Mightier than the Shovel* [Bronze/10G] "Find the hidden cavalry sword and take down an enemy [...] in the campaign" This must be done during 'Breakdown' - the third chapter of 'Through Mud and Blood' (the first of the five war stories). After finding the first spark-plug go east, follow the main track south and enter the village through the barricaded entrance. Follow the cobbled road and look for the second building on the left (north side) which has a mounted machinegun above the door and a large German flag flying from the front. Enter the building via the front door and you'll find the cavalry sword on the floor underneath a table on the left side of the first room. Press Square (or X on Xbox) to pick it up and it'll be equipped as your melee weapon - replacing your trusty shovel. Watch out for enemies as you enter the village. You can use your binoculars by holding R1 (or RB) to tag them from a distance or the suppressed sniper rifle (from the top floor of the first mill) to kill them from a distance. If you haven't seen/killed him already, look out for a guard who will come down from the upper floor of the house - and remember to check up there too if you want to grab a suppressed pistol. If you enjoy using the sword here you can work your way stealthily through the village and farm further kills for 'Up Close and Personal' (trophy #22). *The original famous saying is "The pen is mightier than the sword." 24 Shock Wave [Bronze/10G] "Kill 5 enemies by using dynamite in the campaign" Dynamite is one of several gadgets that can be collected from medium-sized weapon crates, most of which can be found in the green weapon tents that are scattered around each level. When you have dynamite equipped you can select it with d-pad left or right, press L2/LT to toss one bundle and then press R2/RT to detonate it. This can be used to destroy vehicles or heavy weapons but it works just fine for killing people too. For example you could creep up behind someone and drop a bundle behind them, plant a charge on a sentry's patrol route or set a trap and lure enemies into it by throwing empty cases. A good chapter for this is 'Fog of War' in the first war story which has at least six crates with dynamite available. - weapon tent at first checkpoint - weapon tent at second checkpoint - weapon tent on east side of logging camp - weapon crate in centre of logging camp - long bunker on north side of logging camp - weapon tent in north-east corner of logging camp It seems that you can get your five kills over multiple replays if you want - I replayed 'Fog of War' specifically to farm kills for this trophy and it popped after getting just two kills so it must've counted prior ones too. 25 Triple Boluk-Bashi* [Silver/40G] "Kill all 3 Ottoman officers in Young Men's Work with melee kills [...]" This must be done during 'Young Men's Work' - the second chapter of 'Nothing is Written' (the fifth of the five war stories). Your primary objectives in this mission require you to kill one officer in each of three military bases which are situated to the east, north and west of your starting position (indicated by white diamonds on your minimap). The officers are the ones wearing dark clothing and if you spot one with R1 (or RB on Xbox) he'll be marked with a star symbol. Naturally stealth is an effective option here to take out the officers and any of their guards that get in your way. The usual rules of stealth apply so crouch to move more quietly and throw empty cases to lure enemies away. Completing this trophy will also unlock the 'T.E. Lawrence' codex entry which requires you to kill one of the officers with a melee attack. However you'll miss 'Gertrude Bell' (for killing an officer using a bolt-action rifle) and 'Tanks in the Desert' (for killing another using a tank). You might want to get those two first and then restart the chapter or alternatively you could revisit the mission later using chapter select. It seems that you don't need to get all three melee kills in a single run. I was using a secondary account to test whether it's possible to get this with sabre attacks from horseback and I got one kill, restarted, got two more and the trophy popped. (So yes, it is technically possible to get this trophy from horseback but two of the commanders have a tendency to hide indoors.) *"Boluk-Bashi" (fnarr) was an officer rank in the Ottoman Empire's army - it was roughly equivalent to Captain in other forces. Campaign Completion ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The game has three difficulty levels - Easy, Normal and Hard - and all three are available from the start (you don't need to unlock Hard). You can set the difficulty each time you start a new story or chapter from the campaign menu. The selected difficulty is the one highlighted in white. The chapter select screen also helpfully indicates when you've completed a chapter on Easy (circle icon), Normal (square icon) and Hard (diamond icon). IMPORTANT: After completing the prologue and all story chapters you need to play the video 'Remember Us' from the story select screen to finish the campaign. After beating the game for the first time - specifically it was on Hard diff - I unlocked the M1909 Benét–Mercié machinegun (Trench-Clearer variant). 26 The Great War [Bronze/10G] "Complete the campaign on Normal difficulty" In order to get this trophy/achievement you'll need to complete all chapters in the war stories on Normal difficulty. These two campaign completion trophies stack so if you beat the game on Hard diff you'll also get this one for completing it on Normal. 27 The War to End All Wars* [Silver/40G] "Complete the campaign on Hard difficulty" In order to get this trophy you'll need to complete all chapters in the war stories on Hard difficulty. *Although best known now as the author of sci-fi classics like 'The War of the Worlds' and 'The Time Machine', H.G. Wells also wrote articles about WWI which were collected in his 1914 book entitled 'The War that will End War'. While variants of this expression became widespread, he was sadly mistaken. Field Manuals Completion ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Field manuals are the collectibles of the campaign. They can be found in small wooden crates which have been hidden around most of the levels. Thirteen of the chapters have five field manuals each and one chapter has just one for a grand total of 66 collectibles for you to track down. There are no missable field manuals so you can pick up any you missed using the chapter select option. The menu shows how many you need from each chapter. Refer to the Trophy Trail (see Section 06) for details of all the field manual locations in each chapter of the campaign. However I appreciate that videos are often much easier to use when hunting collectibles - especially when trying to navigate large outdoor maps like the ones in this game - so I would like to recommend this handy playlist from PowerPyx who has been providing excellent support to the gaming community for several years now. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLRr5L69yg_kFZpbXItq6w0xO55A1uVJvy There are several chapters where it's very easy to accidentally complete the mission before you've found all the collectibles so if you're hunting for field manuals focus on doing that before going to objective markers. In the Trophy Trail I've indicated the chapters with the biggest risk of finishing too soon! In addition to contributing to the 'Enough for a Library' trophy, finding all the field manuals in a chapter will also give you a new codex entry. 28 Catching up on some Reading [Bronze/10G] "Collect one field manual in the campaign" 29 Enough for a Library [Gold/80G] "Collect all field manuals in the campaign" Challenge Completion ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The "challenges" are simply the goals you need to complete in order to unlock codex entries while playing the game, for example "destroy all field guns" and "defeat 5 enemies while on foot" in the first chapter of the first war story. The codex entries which you get for finding all the collectibles in a chapter don't count towards this. Refer to the Trophy Trail (see Section 06) for details of all the challenges in each chapter of the campaign. 30 Up to the Challenge [Bronze/10G] "Complete one challenge in the campaign" 31 Putting in the Effort [Silver/40G] "Complete 10 challenges in the campaign" 32 Master of Adaptation [Gold/80G] "Complete all challenges in the campaign" .------------.-----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06 | TROPHY TRAIL s06 | '------------'-----------------------------------------------------------------' Since there are usually a combination of collectibles and secondary objectives in a chapter that are required for trophy completion I decided to follow the example of my trophy guide for Battlefield Hardline and include a "Trophy Trail" (patent pending) which lists them all together and in (chrono)logical order. However before I do that I'll list all the general trophies and codex entries. o Trophy #22 - Up Close and Personal This requires you to get ten melee kills during the whole campaign. There are several sections where you can use stealth takedowns so you'd get this pretty quickly if you choose to play those missions with stealth. There's also one codex challenge which requires you to get ten melee kills in one chapter so you'll get this while working on codex completion too. o Trophy #24 - Shock Wave This requires you to get five dynamite kills during the whole campaign. Some of the medium-sized weapon crates will contain dynamite you can use. The chapter entitled 'Fog of War' is a good place to farm this as there are at least six crates there that'll give you dynamite. o Codex Entry - A European Powder Keg You get this for completing any chapter in the campaign. o Trophy #30 - Up to the Challenge You get this for completing your first codex challenge during the campaign. If you play through the war stories in numerical order and focus on doing as many challenges as possible you'd probably get this after completing the 'Observation Balloons' challenge in the first chapter. o Trophy #31 - Putting in the Effort You get this for completing ten codex challenges during the campaign. If you focus on completing challenges you could potentially get this after about five chapters but more likely you'll get it slightly later. It's up to you whether you work on challenges during your first or second playthrough or if you use chapter select to pick up any ones you missed. o Trophy #32 - Master of Adaptation You get this for completing all codex challenges during the campaign. A lot of players will probably skip 'Airborne Cannons' since it's the toughest challenge and then come back to it after completing the campaign in which case they would also get this trophy as an additional reward for their patience! o Codex Entry - They Shall Not Pass* You'll unlock this by completing all the stories in the campaign. o Trophy #26 - The Great War You get this for completing every chapter of the campaign on Normal diff. o Trophy #27 - The War to End All Wars You get this for completing every chapter of the campaign on Hard diff. *This codex entry shares its name with the first DLC (see Section 07a). .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06a | Storm of Steel (Prologue) s06a | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' This is a brief but harrowing prologue to the campaign which consists of a single chapter. You should find that the level launches automatically when you first load the game (while multiplayer is installing in the background). (You can quit out during the prologue but you'll still be forced to complete it before you can start any of the main war stories.) You can't select the difficulty, there are no field manuals (collectibles) and there's only one codex entry to unlock. Although it's only short, the prologue is technically counted as one of six war stories on the campaign title screen. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( Prologue: Storm of Steel - Chapter 1: Break of Dawn ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' You are not expected to survive. o Codex Entry - African American Troops You'll get this for completing the prologue chapter. .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06b | Through Mud and Blood (War Story 1) s06b | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The location for this story is Ribécourt in France. o Codex Entry - Towards Cambrai You'll unlock this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #14 - Through Mud and Blood You'll also earn this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #19 - Sound of Thunder You'll earn this by unlocking all the codex entries in this story. After completing all the codex challenges and finding all the field manuals in this story you'll unlock a C96 pistol skin (His Lordship) for multiplayer. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 1: Through Mud and Blood - Chapter 1: Over the Top ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Push through the French countryside and take out enemy units and emplacements. You play as the driver (and gunner) of a British tank nicknamed "Black Bess".* By default you use the left stick for movement, right stick to aim, R2/RT to fire and R1/RB to spot enemy emplacements. If necessary you can use the Controls \ Control Schemes menu to reconfigure your controller layout. I like to use the Veteran option for Ground Vehicle Buttons which puts accelerate/reverse on the triggers and puts fire on L1/LB. Press Triangle/Y to toggle between your cannons (for larger targets) and the machineguns (for infantry) and use d-pad up to zoom. (You can change the Weapon Zoom control option to specify whether you press or hold to zoom.) You can hold d-pad down for around seven seconds to repair your tank's health by 20%. After capturing the "C" flag in this chapter you can hold Square/X to exit Black Bess and repair her much faster using the repair tool gadget. Take out field guns (see below) and enemy tanks as quickly as possible as they can do heavy damage to you. Anti-tank grenades will do a chunk of damage too but they have slow fuses so you can drive away from them before they detonate. *There really was a British tank called "Black Bess" at Cambrai. Here's a photo of her during the war - the German text painted on the side says that she was captured by the II Army Corps. https://www.flickr.com/photos/drakegoodman/5484055352 She was likely named after the horse of the (in)famous 18th-century highwayman Dick Turpin. In the game the tank has highwayman emblems painted on the hull. She also has the code number F71 but in real life the tanks with F numbers had names beginning with F - some predictable names such as Fearless, Formidable or Ferocious and others less conventional like Frolic, Fairy and Fray Bentos! o Codex Entry - German Anti-Tank Tactics The German forces are using FK 96 field guns (small artillery cannons) as anti-tank weapons and for this codex entry you must destroy all of them. There's a total of 35 or 36 field guns in this level. There's sometimes an extra one near the church but it seems like it's very buggy - if it's not there then you don't need to get it for this challenge! Occasionally a field gun will get destroyed before you find it too so that makes it more tricky to keep track of your progress as well. There are several ways to find the field guns: - Listen for the sound of them firing - Watch for the visual effect as they lob shells at you - Listen for callouts from Townsend when one is nearby - Press R1 (or RB on Xbox) to spot enemy emplacements (Spotting will mark both field guns and machineguns. You're not required to destroy the MGs for this challenge but you might as well since that makes it easier for your infantry comrades to advance onto objectives. A manned weapon has a red diamond marker and an unmanned one has a grey marker.) A field gun can be destroyed by a single direct hit from one of the main tank cannons. At long range you can use d-pad up to zoom but you'll need to aim high to compensate for the effect of gravity. You'll see an explosion effect when you successfully kill a field gun. The gun model will still be displayed afterwards but it'll be smoking and it'll have wonky wheels - this counts as being destroyed for this challenge. All the field gun locations are included in the timeline below... o Field Guns - at "A" (Piccadilly Mill) 1. Directly in front of the windmill 2. Far to the right of the mill, next to a three-storey ruin o Field Guns - advancing on "B" (Kitchener's Ridge) 3. On the far left side 4. Near the centre, to the right of the concrete bunker 5. Farther right, in front of two small buildings o Field Guns - at "B" (Kitchener's Ridge) 6. In the middle, on the right side of the central road 7. On the right, past two small buildings, next to the line of trees 8. On the left, in front of the middle small building in a row of three 9. On the left, behind the third small building o Field Gun - advancing on "C" (Beren's Crossing) 10. In the centre, just to the right of the flag, aiming down the road o Field Guns - at "C" (Beren's Crossing) 11. To the right of the road, behind the flag and in front of a building 12. To the right of the road, on the right side of the same building 13. On the left side, within a group of buildings and next to a brick pillar o Codex Entry - Observation Balloons After capturing "C" point you're forced to get out of the tank. You can now enter and exit the tank whenever you want by holding Square (X on Xbox). For this codex entry you're required to get five kills as infantry. You have a classic "broomhandle" Mauser with a ten-round capacity and four spare clips but you're free to pick up a rifle or shotgun off any dead troops you find. o Field Guns - advancing on the first three artillery targets 14. Immediately to the left of the green weapon tent 15. A short way to the left of the previous one 16. Immediately to the right of the green weapon tent 17. On the right but farther back, in front of the church tower o Field Manual #1 Exit the tank and go to the green tent which is marked with an "X" symbol that indicates a weapons depot. The field manual crate is immediately to the south-east of the tent, next to a large pile of empty artillery shell cases. o Trophy #28 - Catching up on some Reading You'll get this for finding your first field manual collectible. o Field Guns - after pushing up the ramp to the left of the green tent 18. Directly in front as you advance through the gap between two buildings 19. To the back-left of the well area 20. To the back-right of the well area, in front of the artillery targets 21. Hidden behind the building on the right after you pass through the gap o Field Guns - at the church 22. In the front-right corner of the churchyard 23. On the right side of the churchyard 24. In the road opposite the back-right corner of the churchyard (Check the front-left corner of the churchyard too - there's a chance there might be an additional field gun there next to the two artillery cannons but it seems to be pretty glitchy. If it's not there then you don't need it!) o Field Manual #2 After clearing out the area, exit the tank and go inside the church. The first of two manuals here is in the south-west corner opposite some beds. o Field Manual #3 Exit the church via the east doorway (hole in wall!) and turn left. You'll find the third collectible crate in front of a large green wheel that's leaning against the north-east corner of the church. o Field Guns - advancing on "D" (Big Willy's Farm*) 25. On the far left side, to the left of the windmill 26. In front of "D" flag o Field Gun - at "D" (Big Willy's Farm*) 27. Inside the building at the back of the farmyard 28. In the centre of the eastern ridge, to the left of the concrete bunker 29. In the centre of the eastern ridge, to the right of the concrete bunker 30. On the left side, to the right of the windmill and the other bunker o Field Manual #4 After capturing the farm and taking out all the field guns exit the tank again and go to the building on the south side of the farmyard. The crate is outside, between some barrels at the north-east corner. o Field Guns - after reaching the top of the eastern ridge 31. To the right of the concrete bunker in front of the bridge 32. To the left of the road, at the far north-east corner of the paddock 33. To the left of the road, at the far south-east corner of the paddock o Field Manual #5 Exit the tank and head north until you find a muddy lane. Follow this east towards the big bridge and you'll find a couple of wheeled artillery units on the right side of the track. The crate is immediately behind the first one. (If you find a single wagon next to a big puddle near the mill then you need to continue farther east along the track.) Make sure that you have all five collectibles before crossing the bridge. o Codex Entry - Tank Shock You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. o Field Guns - at the big metal bridge 34. On the far side of the bridge to the left of the road 35. On the far side of the bridge to the right of the road (In the final sequence of the mission follow the white circular markers in the centre of the screen or head towards the white minimap diamond to the west.) *The prototype of the British Mark I tank design was variously known as Big Willie, Mother, The Wilson Machine and His Majesty's Land-Ship "Centipede"! The precursor of "Big Willie" was of course "Little Willie". Now over 100 years old, Little Willie is part of the impressive collection of the Tank Museum at Bovington (about 15 miles from Poole on the south coast of England) and is recognized as the oldest surviving tank in the world. http://www.tankmuseum.org/museum-online/vehicles/object-e1949-322 .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 1: Through Mud and Blood - Chapter 2: Fog of War ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Clear out enemy emplacements so Black Bess can advance through the forest. There are three checkpoints to get past in the misty section in the first half of the mission. At each one you need to kill every enemy soldier there before the tank can move up but there are two codex challenges for completing this section in different ways so you'll need to play this chapter - or at least the first part of this chapter - twice for codex completion. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before entering the tank after clearing the logging camp in the second half of the mission. o Codex Entry - Forest Combat For this challenge you need to clear the checkpoints without using melee. You start with your Mauser pistol again (50 rounds) and you're free to use any firearms or heavy weapons you find in weapon crates or take off dead enemies. This is an easier (and certainly quicker) option compared to using stealth (see below) but when enemies go on alert they'll man the field guns and start shooting at dear old Bessy so take care to eliminate anyone manning the guns first and check if the tank needs repairs. The green tents at the first two checkpoints have supplies of dynamite and there are at least four other crates with dynamite later in the level so this is a good chapter for farming dynamite kills for 'Shock Wave' (trophy #24). (Take care not to swap out your repair tool when picking up a third gadget too because sometimes it'll be a bit buggy and you can't get it back. If you want to replace your second gadget then select that gadget first.) The forest section ends when you reach the big girder truss bridge. The codex entry should unlock after clearing out the three bases, reporting to the tank and performing repairs. o Codex Entry - Guiding Bess For this challenge you need to clear the checkpoints without being detected. You still need to kill all enemies at each checkpoint in order to progress so you'll mainly be using stealthy melee takedowns here (which is why you can't readily complete these two codex challenges at the same time). Hold R1 (RB on Xbox) to use your binoculars and spot enemies from long range. They'll be permanently marked which makes things a lot easier for you. It's worth investing a minute or two to scout around the perimeter of each base. Stay crouched when moving near enemies - this makes you quieter and generally harder to spot. Never sprint when there are enemies nearby. Use cover to break an enemy's line of sight and go prone to hide behind low cover, but don't rely on foliage or moving objects (e.g. doors) as cover. Tap the touchpad (Back button on Xbox) to throw an empty casing to distract an enemy and lure them in a certain direction, away from his buddies. Once you get close behind an enemy you can press your melee button to perform an instant stealth takedown. You can use this to pick them off one by one in the misty forest like some sort of clichéd horror-movie killer :) It's helpful to understand the markers that indicate the status of a guard: White = he's neutral Yellow (not flashing) = he's curious Yellow (flashing) = he's actively searching Red (filling) = he can see you but is still deciding to raise the alarm Red (full) = he's detected you and the alert status will spread to any others Only the final status counts as detection and fortunately the red symbol takes a few seconds to fill so you have time to react - drop prone if there's cover and throw a shell case (lure) to get the guard to look in another direction. o Field Manual #6 After the tank breaks through the first barbed-wire barricade and Townsend tells you to "get up front and lead us through" you need to go up the mossy slope to the north immediately after the barricade. You can find the crate on the right-hand side next to a tree. (From here you can hug the right edge of the playable area to come to a small clearing with two guards. There's a little cellar on the right side with a weapons cache including a silenced Mauser pistol* which can be handy on both your "no melee" and "no alerts" playthrough.) o Field Manual #7 At the second checkpoint there's some sort of ruined church or abbey. Head down into the undercroft/cellar, go to the generator in the south-west and then to the south-east corner where you'll find the field manual between the beds on the north-east side. o Field Manual #8 When you reach the girder bridge check underneath it on the far side. The collectible crate is behind some rocks there. (Beyond the bridge you'll notice that the weapon crates start providing heavy anti-tank equipment - so take the hint!) o Field Manual #9 Next you'll pass into an open area - the logging camp. The next crate is inside the small concrete pillbox bunker in the north-west corner of the area. o Field Manual #10 From the bunker head east across the ridge above the big bunker. The final field manual is behind a pile of wooden crates on the far eastern side of the compound, in the north-east corner of the map. Remember to get all five collectibles before entering the tank at the end of the mission! o Codex Entry - Gone Chemical You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *A classic "broomhandle" C96 Mauser was used as the basis for a classic Star Wars prop - Han Solo's iconic DL-44 blaster pistol (in the original trilogy). .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 1: Through Mud and Blood - Chapter 3: Breakdown ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Retrieve four spark-plugs for your tank from the village. The general locations of each one are marked with diamonds and large white circles on your minimap. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before returning to the tank after gathering all the spark-plugs. o Codex Entry - Stealing Tanks For this one you need to find all four spark-plugs without being detected. The stealth principles from the previous chapter apply again so avoid running near enemies, crouch to move quietly, throw lures to manipulate guards and use stealth kills to take them out quietly. Several of the crates contain silenced weapons and it's okay to use these as long as nobody sees it happen. The top floor of the first windmill gives a good vantage point for spotting enemies and there's a silenced sniper rifle there which is very handy. If you do get spotted by an enemy guard it's okay to use the "restart from checkpoint". I did that several times - but that was purely for the sake of testing of course. ;) o Codex Entry - Tank Hunters This is an unmissable one for grabbing your first spark-plug, most likely from the centre of the farmyard to the south-east of the mill. (The other three can all be found in separate workshop yards in the village.) o Field Manual #11 Head across the farmyard to the eastern corner where you'll see a small building with a covered wood store. Open the door at the end to find the first field manual inside. o Field Manual #12 From there continue east across the meadow and over the road to the second windmill. Go inside and up two floors - the next crate is on the north side next to a window. (One of the weapon crates in the green tent next to the windmill contains a silenced M1911 pistol which you can use for stealth kills.) o Trophy #23 - Mightier than the Shovel You need to find the cavalry sword and get one kill with it. From the second mill go south into the village and follow the alley that leads south between two walls to a house with an external lamp on the wall. The sword is on the floor in front of a table in the front lobby of the house. If you enter through the front door (below the mounted machinegun upstairs) it will be on your left or if you enter through the house's side door in the alley it'll be to your right. Take care because there's a guard who will come downstairs - he could give an alert but he also makes a good victim. :) (The weapon crate in the MG room upstairs has a silenced C96 pistol.) o Field Manual #13 Continue east down the main street and go behind the second house on right - the one with the alarm post outside (you can interact to disable this) and the big German flag hanging flat against the front wall. Enter the building and go upstairs to the room with the machinegun (it's the same layout as the sword house) and the crate's in the north-west corner. o Field Manual #14 Now exit the house and look across the main street to the north-east where you'll see a building with a sign that says "A. Lefeuvre". Enter this building and go up two floors to the attic where you'll find the crate in the north-west corner. (It's very dark up there but it's easier to see if you change the game's brightness setting to max.) o Field Manual #15 From there continue east to the junction at the end of the main street. There is another windmill here and I'd recommend going inside and taking out the lookout upstairs as he can see for miles. Instead of crossing the bridge, head directly south-east across the river and continue to the small property on the outskirts of the village. The fifth and final collectible for this level is inside the small building in the north-east corner of the yard (east of the weapons tent). Remember to get all five collectibles before returning to the tank at the end of the mission! o Codex Entry - Aircraft Support You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 1: Through Mud and Blood - Chapter 4: Steel on Steel ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Get Black Bess through the village and onto the rendezvous point. o Codex Entry - Bourlon Wood You need to cross the village without your tank taking any damage. The easiest way is simply to trundle east across to the far side of the map and then drive south just inside the boundary of the playable area. The river by the mill on the far side of the village should be shallow enough to cross safely but watch out for a little FT tank patrolling that area. I would suggest doing this first and then restarting the mission to sweep the village for the collectibles - which have all magically appeared since the last time you were in the village in Chapter 3! (You can leave Black Bess at the start of the level and work through the village on foot. You can use the anti-tank equipment in the weapon crates to take out - or at least weaken - the German armour in the village.) o Field Manual #16 There are five windmills in this chapter and there's one collectible in each of them. They're even in the same location inside each mill - hidden behind the millstones on the bottom floor. The first mill is at the start of the level on the right side of the road. o Field Manual #17 From there proceed down the track to the next windmill which is on the left side of road. The crate is behind the millstones again. o Codex Entry - Beutepanzers* For this you need to destroy one of the captured British Mark V tanks - the same type as Black Bess (not the smaller FT tank which is a French model). It needs to be one of the active tanks too - you can't destroy one of those Mark V wrecks in the repair yards! The first tank can be found to the south-east behind the second windmill. It's easiest to "fight fire with fire" and use Black Bess to duel with one of the captured British tanks. Positioning can make a big difference - the tank armour is weakest on the rear and strongest on the front. You can also make good use of hard cover by using "pillaring" techniques - peak from cover to take a shot then go back into cover while your next round is loading. Unless you're an elite tanker there's a risk of Black Bess taking some damage so you might prefer not to use her if you're trying to complete everything in this chapter in a single run. The alternative is to load up on the plentiful anti-tank supplies from the weapon tents and use those instead after leaving Bess parked safely at the start of the level. On Hard difficulty it took two anti-tank grenades, three shots from an anti- tank "rocket gun" and one shot from the T-Gewehr anti-tank rifle. Obviously it's safer to use long-range weapons from a distance where possible. The other option is to go Full Rambo - clear out any nearby guards and take out the tank in close quarters using your repair tool! :) o Field Manual #18 From the second mill go south-west across the track to the third one. o Field Manual #19 From the third mill head east across the village to the fourth mill which is at the far end of the main street. There will usually be a couple of enemy vehicles around this area. o Field Manual #20 From the fourth mill go south out of the village to the fifth mill which you can see silhouetted on the hillside. o Codex Entry - There's Always a First You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *The big boxy A7V Sturmpanzerwagen was the only German tank used during WWI and only twenty saw service. The Germany army actually used twice as many captured British tanks which were known as Beutepanzerwagen (literally "booty" tanks). .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06c | Friends in High Places (War Story 2) s06c | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The location for this story is Vosges in France. o Codex Entry - Dawn of Dogfights You'll unlock this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #12 - Friends in High Places You'll also earn this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #17 - Taking down Giants You'll earn this by unlocking all the codex entries in this story. This story has four chapters but only one has the usual five collectibles. One other chapter has one field manual and the other two have none. After completing all the codex challenges and finding all the field manuals in this story you'll unlock an Auto Revolver skin (Straight Flush) for multiplayer. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 2: Friends in High Places - Chapter 1: Test Flight ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Try out the Royal Flying Corps' new Bristol F2-A biplane. o Codex Entry - Dicta Boelcke* The mission starts with two trials where you're required to tail another plane but to unlock this codex entry you need to follow it very closely. Firstly you should check that you're happy with the plane controls. If you need to you can invert pitch on the Basic controls menu and change the sticks configuration on the Control Schemes menu (I like to use Legacy sticks). Now it's simply a case of following the target plane as closely as possible. Don't worry about mirroring every roll manoeuvre they make but otherwise keep your nose tight on their tail. You'll want to maintain quite a high speed but be ready to ease off the throttle slightly to avoid making contact with the other plane or if you need to make a sharp turn. If you're not familiar with plane controls it might take a few attempts to get used to them so just keep practising. o Codex Entry - To Be Ace This is an unmissable unlock for completing the target practice sequence after tailing the plane. Use your gun to take out the balloon targets - if you slow down and focus on shooting the nearest ones first it should be possible to get them all in a single pass but there's no time-limit so you can take as many attempts as you need. Then press Triangle (Y on Xbox) to switch to your rockets and use these on the indicated ground targets. You can use L2 (LT on Xbox) to zoom. *The 'Dicta Boelcke' is a set of eight rules for dogfighting compiled by the German WWI ace pilot Oswald Boelcke. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 2: Friends in High Places - Chapter 2: Total War ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Escort waves of bombers on a vital mission. o Codex Entry - Bloody April For this one you need to have at least four bomber planes in one bombing run survive long enough to deliver their payloads. I think I got this on my initial Hard playthrough although I died a few times. After the bombing runs commence you'll need to multi-task, switching between four basic activities as necessary: 1. Use your machinegun to take down enemy fighters, especially the ones that are flying directly behind bombers as those pose the greatest threat. If a bomber is taking fire its round blue icon will flash. 2. Use your rockets to take out the pairs of anti-air trucks on the ground. These can be tricky to see but they'll be indicated with small red markers and destroying them will make life easier for your bombers. Come in high and slow to give yourself more time to aim your shots. You have an unlimited supply of rockets but they need to reload periodically. 3. Use evasive manoeuvres to shake off enemy triplane fighters on your tail. 4. Hold L1 (LB on Xbox) to repair your plane. You can still steer while doing this so you can usually combine reps with evasive moves. o Codex Entry - Strategic Bombing This is an unmissable one for successfully completing the objective. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 2: Friends in High Places - Chapter 3: Fall from Grace ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Make your way on foot through enemy lines. o Codex Entry - No Man's Land This is another one where you need to avoid detection. As usual you can crouch to move quietly and throw lures to distract guards and then either creep past them or creep up to them for a stealth takedown. You can actually make pretty good progress by running through much of the level. If an enemy starts to detect you (diamond icon filling red) then drop prone and quickly throw a shell case to make him look in another direction. You might prefer to focus on getting across the level undetected and then do a separate playthrough to get the collectibles. o Field Manual #21 After dispatching (or evading) the two enemies at the start go behind the largest building (north-west side) and from the lantern follow the track to the north. The crate is behind the cart on the right opposite the tree. o Codex Entry - Booby Traps This requires you to get two kills using tripwire bombs. Go back to the first farmyard and exit south-west onto the road. Immediately after the barricade in the road there's a sandbagged emplacement on the right of the track where you can grab a supply of three mines. Each mine is made from an artillery shell. You can select them with d-pad left and then press R2 (RT on Xbox) to deploy a mine on flat ground - it will then automatically project a single tripwire. If you don't like the position of the mine or the direction of the tripwire you can pick it up with Square (or X on Xbox) and try again. There are several options on how to use the mines. You could observe the guard patrol routes and plant mines in their paths, you can deploy them in narrow gaps between buildings/walls and use shell cases to lure guards onto them or you can just creep up behind a guard and plant a mine at his feet. :) When a mine detonates it will cause any nearby guards to go into full alert so this will invalidate a stealth run. I would suggest doing a quick replay of the mission on Easy diff, grabbing the mines, quickly getting the two kills you need and then quitting out. o Field Manual #22 From the tripmines crate follow the track west to the second farm with the bonfire in the middle of the yard. Go to the small building in the far north corner of the farm with a covered store of chopped wood. Open the door and grab the field manual from the crate inside. (The weapons tent on the south side of the farmyard has a silenced Mauser pistol which you can use on your stealth playthrough if you want.) o Field Manual #23 From the previous field manual go west (towards the moon), hop over the fence and cross the track into the next compound. In the north-west corner of the site is a large medical tent lit by a couple of lanterns. The next collectible is between two beds at the north end of the tent. o Field Manual #24 Exit the medical tent to the south and look for the brazier on the right that marks the entrance to the trenches section of the level. Follow the trench west and then south-west across a small open area to another medical tent. Then continue west along the trench and up some steps. (Although this part of the map is relatively narrow the trenches can feel like a bit of a warren and it's easy to lose your bearings so you might want to kill all the enemies first and then backtrack to the farm before following the directions and/or using a video guide.) After ascending the stairs follow the plank path north-west and at the end drop into the trench to the west and then immediately climb out the other side onto the duckboard path. Now if you look to the south-west you should see a lantern illuminating a ruined wagon with the crate next to it. o Field Manual #25 After continuing west you should be able to see a total of four concrete blockhouses each with a spotlight on the roof. You need to go to the most northerly of these on the far northern edge of the map. Inside the bunker the collectible is between the boxes to your left. o Codex Entry - A War in France You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 2: Friends in High Places - Chapter 4: Forte et Fidele* ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Defend the skies over the British Empire's capital city. o Codex Entry - Gotha Raids on London I think this is another unmissable one. After protecting friendly bombers in Chapter 2, your objective here is to take out the enemy ones. These are the large, pale green twin-engined biplanes which you'll find flying in groups straight across the map. They'll be marked with red circles on your radar, although there's no indication of elevation so you might need to look up and down to spot them! They can be taken down through sustained fire from your gun but if you get close enough it's also possible to use your rockets. It's best to follow the example of the enemy fighters in Chapter 2 and fly directly behind a bomber - this makes it easier to hold your target for longer. The red diamond markers on your radar denote the positions of enemy fighters - you should turn your attention temporarily to them if they become a hassle. o Field Manual #26 After taking control in the infantry section of the mission you should follow the gantries until you reach some barrels and a weapon crate with an SMG. From there continue along catwalks west, north, east and north until you can see large metal cylinders suspended on both sides. The crate can be found behind the second cylinder on the right side. o Codex Entry - Jousting with Dragons You'll get this for finding the one field manual in this chapter. o Codex Entry - Airborne Cannons At the end of the mission you mount an anti-aircraft gun and to unlock this codex entry you need to destroy ten enemy planes in just 30 seconds. The enemy planes will be marked in red on your minimap but this gives no indication of elevation so it's hard to translate the information there into your 3D view when aiming. You'll need to lead your targets (fire in front of them) and remember that your gun overheats after eight seconds of continuous fire so lay off the trigger between targets. A further complication is that there are several friendly planes in the sky so you don't want to waste time shooting those! There are four red enemy tri-planes that come in low from the front at the start and a trio of bombers that enter from the right after about 14 seconds and fly slowly to the left. Those can give you a good chunk of your quota but it can be very difficult to get the rest you need. If you hear your character say "come on, come on!" and you haven't got the codex entry then you should pause and restart from the last checkpoint. At least each attempt only takes 30 seconds and you can restart really quickly. Most players will find this to be the hardest and most frustrating challenge in the game so I would highly recommend using this great guide by 360GameTV. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf-diNV89rM I'd already made several unsuccessful attempts but I got it on my second try after watching that helpful video. (If you have the physical disc edition of the game and you're stuck on this codex entry then it's strongly recommended to uninstall the game, disconnect your console from the internet temporarily and install the game from the disc without any downloaded patches. This allows you to attempt this troublesome challenge without the nerf that was applied to the anti-air gun.) *"Forte et Fidele" (Latin for "strong and faithful") was the motto of No. 48 Squadron of Britain's Royal Flying Corps (precursor of the Royal Air Force). .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06d | Avanti Savoia! (War Story 3) s06d | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The location for this story is the Dolomites mountain range in northern Italy. o Codex Entry - Among Peaks of Kings You'll unlock this by completing both the chapters in this story. o Trophy #15 - Avanti Savoia! You'll also earn this by completing both the chapters in this story. o Trophy #20 - Conquering the Mountains You'll earn this by unlocking all the codex entries in this story. After completing all the codex challenges and finding all the field manuals in this story you'll unlock a Cei-Rigotti skin (Fiamme Verdi) for multiplayer. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 3: Avanti Savoia! - Chapter 1: O La Vittoria* ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Support the infantry as they advance on enemy positions. You play as an elite trooper of the Arditi* unit wearing heavy plate armour and wielding the MG 08/15 machinegun (just like the Sentry pickup in multiplayer). The armour lets you use a fairly tanky style but you will still take a little damage from each bullet. You do have health regeneration but it takes a long time to begin and the process will be interrupted if you take further damage. You will be vulnerable to a bayonet charge from the rear so try to avoid getting flanked by the enemy and if you happen to find yourself on fire then drop prone immediately. (both good tips for multiplayer too!) o Codex Entry - The Daring Ones You receive this after getting your first kill in this chapter. o Codex Entry - Farina Armor For this one you need to get a total of five kills using grenades. You start with a supply of eight standard grenades plus four anti-tank 'nades in a gadget slot (although you might want to save those for later). I was able to complete this in the churchyard at the first objective. There are numerous enemies here and if you tap R1/RB occasionally they'll be spotted and marked on your minimap. Look for groups of enemies bunched together and try to be quite accurate with your throws as the grenades seem to have a small radius for splash damage. There are plenty more targets later in the level - you might find it easier to get grenade kills in the trench sections. o Field Manual #27 After capping the St Anastasia church, exit to the south-east and follow the the track (and your comrades) to the south. Your first field manual is inside the first stone cottage on the left, in the south-east corner next to a couch covered in a dustsheet. o Field Manual #28 From there exit via the south-west door and fight along the track with your allies. (You can use those AT grenades to eliminate the armoured trucks.) Continue along the main track for about 40 seconds (running speed) past the steps on the right, past the branching track on the right and through the barricade across the road until you see a low stone wall on your left. At the far end of the wall turn left and head down the slope into the small entrenched outpost with a few guards. After taking them out you can get the next collectible from the south-east corner under the wooden shelter. o Field Manual #29 Now go south-west back onto the main road and backtrack north-west for about 15 seconds (running) until you reach the barricade with sandbags and barbed wire. Immediately after that take a left and follow the white path up the hillside for about 15 seconds (running). There's another trench with stone walls and a wooden roof here and the next field manual is inside at the far south-east end. o Field Manual #30 Continue to fight your way uphill for around 30 seconds (running) towards the main objective marker (artillery gun), taking the left fork through an MG emplacement and following the trenches into the stone bunker. After killing the indoor guards check the south corner of the chamber where you'll find the fourth collectibles crate. o Field Manual #31 After blowing up the artillery objective (there's more dynamite in a crate if you need it) exit through the doorway in the east corner and go upstairs. Now take the steps up to the right, more steps up to the left and follow the stony path for about 25 seconds (running) towards the final objective. When you reach a machinegun nest on the left look for another stone trench on the right (north-west) - the crate is directly in front of it. o Codex Entry - Coming Together You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *The Arditi were the elite special forces of the Royal Italian Army. Their motto was "O la vittoria, o tutti accoppati" meaning "We either win, or we all die". .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 3: Avanti Savoia! - Chapter 2: O Tutti Accoppati ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Continue your mission (sans armour) - this time it's personal! IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before taking the marked blue doors after completing the "clear the Austrian horn" objective. o Codex Entry - Beyond Belief This is an unmissable one which you get at the very start of the chapter. o Codex Entry - Where Eagles Dare* You're equipped with the ferocious Villar Perosa (which is basically two SMGs welded together!) but you'll need to switch to your trusty original Beretta pistol for this one and get a total of ten kills with it. Your sidearm has an 8+1 ammo capacity and you get a further 45 rounds in reserve so that's enough for five full reloads. Engage enemies at short range - and go for headshots where possible - to do more damage per shot. After getting the ten required kills you're free to swap out your sidearm for a second primary if you like. You might want to save the Villar for dealing with heavies later in the level. o Field Manual #32 From your starting position drop down into the trenches, follow them south and then hug the edge of the playable area. After a few seconds you'll find a barn where the collectibles crate is inside against the northern wall. o Field Manual #33 After completing the "defend Alpini outpost" objective you'll get two new objectives. Go to the one on your left - it'll take about 25 seconds (running) to reach it - and enter the large tunnel entrance. Go downstairs then turn right - you'll find the next crate on the right side just past a couple of soldiers. o Field Manual #34 Once you reach the first part of the fort stay outside and skirt around the north and west sides, follow the path south-west and then south-east until you reach a bunker entrance in the nook that's visible on your minimap at the southern corner of the map. The crate is behind the partial dividing wall in the middle of the downstairs room. (If you're running low on supplies then restock from the weapon crates here.) o Field Manual #35 Exit the bunker and head right along the path to the blue-framed door that takes you inside the fort's perimeter wall where you're forced to complete the "clear the Austrian horn" objective (with no option to retreat). I would suggest grabbing this next collectible during the firefight in the courtyard here since it requires you to go out of bounds and you can't get it without dying - and you'll respawn back at the start of the horny objective. So, rush into the courtyard and drop down into the sunken area in the centre. Enter the tunnel to the east side and follow the passage into a large vaulted room with several bunk-beds. The crate is between the first and second beds in the northern corner. o Field Manual #36 You can either get the fifth field manual during the firefight or after the shootout but before the final objective. Go behind the building on the east side - you can either flank around outside at the south-east corner of the area or pass through the north-east room. The crate is next to the building wall at the north end of the fenced area. Remember to get all five collectibles before going to the big blue doors at the end of the mission! o Codex Entry - Alpine War You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *The classic 1968 movie 'Where Eagles Dare' starring Richard Burton and Clint Eastwood also had a wartime Alpine setting but it was set during WWII. .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06e | The Runner (War Story 4) s06e | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The location for this story is the Dardanelles at Gallipoli in Turkey. o Codex Entry - The Dardanelles You'll unlock this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #16 - The Runner You'll also earn this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #21 - The Hills of Gallipoli You'll earn this by unlocking all the codex entries in this story. After completing all the codex challenges and finding all the field manuals in this story you'll unlock a Howdah Pistol skin (Frontiersman) for multiplayer. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 4: The Runner - Chapter 1: Cape Helles* ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Storm the beach and clear out the enemy positions. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before capturing Helles Overlook ("A" objective). o Codex Entry - The Big Guns This is an unmissable unlock for completing an early mandatory event. o Codex Entry - Torpedo Exploit Your objective here is to get ten headshot kills during the chapter. Your starting primary is a bolt-action SMLE carbine which'll reliably give a one-hit headshot kill even on Hard difficulty. It has an early reticle sight instead of a scope which limits its potential at long range but it is possible to get sniper headshot kills - for example on MG operators - but it's easier if you spot your target first so you can see their outline more clearly. It can be tricky to do this on Hard difficulty since you have very little time to aim after peeking cover before you start taking damage and need to return to cover to heal. Try to use angles where fewer enemies will see you and take consolation in the fact that your headshot kill-count doesn't reset each time you respawn after dying! If necessary you can pick up this codex entry on a quick Easy mission re-play. o Field Manual #37 From the beach follow the first level of trenches south, taking the lower left path when you come to a fork. Continue until you reach the machinegun nest at the far end of the trench. (It is possible to go prone and pick off the MG operator with a careful shot through the viewing port in the gun's shield - and that'll give you one of your ten headshot kills too!) Next to the machinegun position is a wooden shack with a field gun inside and the crate is hidden on the east side, between the shack and the outer sandbag wall next to the beach. o Field Manual #38 With the cannon crew cleared it's easier to get the next collectible crate which is on the beach. Backtrack along the first trench until you reach the two weapon crates. Stand between them and hop over the wall onto the bench. Look to your left and you will see three boxes on your left, one of which has the field manual. o Field Manual #39 Get back up into the lower level of trenches and return to the weapon crates. This time take the right fork and follow the path uphill south-west, west, north-west and north into the next level of trenches parallel to the beach. Follow the trench to the north and when you get to the end (which is blocked by rubble) look to your right. The crate is in the open area here. o Field Manual #40 Return to the uphill path and continue south - past two MGs - to the far end of the current level of trenches. (At the end of the trench - before going up the slope - is a third machinegun position with a weapon crate containing a Gewehr 98 rifle with a sniper scope which you might want for getting headshot kills at longer ranges.) Follow the duckboard path uphill to the south-east and west. When you see a low sandbag wall ahead take a left and continue uphill west to a small stone house. The collectibles crate can be found in the little porch structure at the front (east) corner of the building. o Field Manual #41 From there keep pushing north towards "A" objective (Helles Overlook). The crate for the final field manual is inside the storage shed to the west of the main building at the flag. Remember to get all five collectibles before completing the "A" flag capture. o Codex Entry - Battery Beyond You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *Cape Helles is the location where British and French troops landed at the start of the Gallipoli Campaign in 1915. It's also a map in the Turning Tides DLC. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 4: The Runner - Chapter 2: The Runner ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Deliver messages across the occupied town. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got the first four field manuals (check the pause screen) before returning to your commanding officer. o Codex Entry - Drip Gun* This requires you to get ten kills with a sidearm so you'll need to find one! There's a weapon crate behind the house immediately to the east of your starting position. This will give you a silenced Mauser pistol so you can use this for stealthy headshot kills but it only holds ten rounds and you get no spare ammo so you gotta make those shots count! The other option is at the second house on the far left - to the north-west below the hilltop fort - which is about 30 seconds (running speed) from your starting position. The middle crate behind the house contains a Howdah Pistol which is loaded with four rounds and has another 24 in reserve. The Howdah is a quad-barrel pistol that was designed to be used by big-game hunters for protection against large animals so it hits pretty hard. It'll give a one-hit kill on enemies at short range so it's effectively like having a sawn-off double-double-barrel shotgun in your pocket. :) Remember you can tap R1/RB to spot enemies or hold R1/RB to use your binos at long range - this marks enemy troops and makes them easier to track. After you get your tenth sidearm kill and the codex entry unlocks you'll want to stop using your pistol/s and save some targets for the next challenge. o Field Manual #42 Before you start hunting down enemies to blast with the Howdah Pistol be sure to pop inside the house there first. When you enter through the north door you will find your first collectible just inside on the right. o Field Manual #43 From the farmhouse with the weapon crates head due east into the centre of the village and you should see a single-storey building with a grey roof (while all the others have two floors and orange roofs). The next crate is outdoors at the southern corner of this humble abode. o Codex Entry - Geology This is another one which requires kills with a specific weapon - you need to kill five enemies using rifle grenades. Head over to the northern side of the map and enter the large bathhouse with domed roofs. Inside the central chamber you'll find a weapon crate on the west side that contains three rifle grenades. (Three more are available on the east side of town - see below.) The rifle grenades are launched from the muzzle of a rifle (hence the name!) but they function like your typical M203/M320 noob-tube from modern games. If you don't manage to get the rifle grenade kills in addition to the sidearm kills you can do a quick replay afterwards. o Field Manual #44 Exit the main bathhouse chamber into the northern room and you can find the next field manual crate to your right by the south wall. o Field Manual #45 After using your first three rifle grenades go to the middle of the east side of the map to the detached one-storey house that's overlooking the sea. The field manual's crate is inside the house in the north-west corner next to a long wooden seat. One of the weapon crates outside will give you another three rifle grenades. Remember to get the first four collectibles before reporting back to your commanding officer and completing the short series of objectives there. o Field Manual #46 After defending the CO's position your new objective will be to get a message to rear command. Head east towards the objective marker and visit the third white house on the left - the one with the middle section of its roof destroyed. The crate is outside the front of the house behind some sacks and boxes. o Codex Entry - Trench Runners You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *Among other measures, the ANZAC forces used automated "drip rifles" to create the illusion that their trenches remained occupied during their retreat. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 4: The Runner - Chapter 3: Be Safe ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Fight or sneak your way into Fort Nöbet. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before capturing the main courtyard at the end of the mission. o Codex Entry - Sedd el Bahr* This requires a total of ten melee kills in the chapter. The first phase of the mission is well suited to this task as there are more than enough enemies and plenty of buildings to provide cover. On higher diffs you should crouch for stealth and throw lures to distract enemies. Watch out for the lookout in the tower who has a longer line of sight. If you want to do this on a quick Easy diff replay then yolo strats are fine - just charge straight at enemies and hack them with your tactical chopping axe, pausing in cover only occasionally for your health to regen. NB If you haven't got it already then completing this codex unlock will also give you 'Up Close and Personal' (trophy #22) for getting ten melee kills. o Codex Entry - River Clyde* The requirement for this unlock is "Defeat 5 enemies with grenades in Be Safe" but, while there are several crates that'll give you stick grenades, you need to specifically use only the three grenades you start with! Your grenades have a limited splash radius too so the most efficient method to get the five kills is to raise an alert to aggro the enemies, let them chase you around the town until they're all bunched up in one big group and then hit 'em with all three 'nades at once. o Field Manual #47 From your starting position go west to the ruined square tower. Enter the tower, go up one ladder to the next floor and you'll find the first crate in the northern corner. o Field Manual #48 Once you're inside the fort go across the courtyard and up the stairs onto the terrace behind the parapet wall. Follow this north past three cannons and then another two and you'll find the next crate on the left behind a stack of big green boxes. o Field Manual #49 From there follow the terrace back around to the east, south and south-west and then past the stairs further west into an open area with a couple of ruined houses and two more big artillery guns. Inside the remains of the first house, the crate is sitting on the west side next to a pile of rubble. o Field Manual #50 From the previous crate go west into the second ruined house, exit through the south door and follow the stairs down into an indoor chamber. The next crate is on your right and there are a couple of weapon crates down there too. o Field Manual #51 At the end of the chapter your last objective is to capture the main courtyard in the fort. The fifth and final crate for this chapter is inside the small stone storehouse on the far side of the courtyard. The crate is lurking in the shadows in the south-west corner of the building. Remember to get all five collectibles before completing the capture of the courtyard objective. o Codex Entry - Gallipoli Myths You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *Sedd el Bahr is a village at Cape Helles on the Gallipoli peninsula. The ship S.S. River Clyde landed troops there during the Gallipoli Campaign. (This also features on the Cape Helles map in the Turning Tides multiplayer expansion.) .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 06f | Nothing is Written (War Story 5) s06f | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The location for this story is Al-Ajdar in the historic region of Mesopotamia. o Codex Entry - Arab Revolt You'll unlock this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #13 - Nothing is Written You'll also earn this by completing all the chapters in this story. o Trophy #18 - All Men Dream You'll earn this by unlocking all the codex entries in this story. After completing all the codex challenges and finding all the field manuals in this story you'll unlock a Russian 1895 skin (Desert Dweller) for multiplayer. For completing the whole campaign you also get a skin (Black Bess) for the Landship (British medium tank) for use in multiplayer. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 5: Nothing is Written - Chapter 1: Hidden in Plain Sight ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Infiltrate the train crash site and seize the code-book. IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before interacting with the roof hatch on the black railroad car. o Codex Entry - The Hejaz Railway You'll get this for simply using your binoculars (L1/LB) at the very start of the chapter and aiming directly at five or six enemies to "spot" them. Not only does this earn you an easy codex article but it'll also help you out as you play through the mission. You should be aware though that spotting from the starting location will miss a couple of enemies on the far side. Even if you don't use the binos this will probably pop later when you start engaging the enemy troops but it's safest to do it properly. o Codex Entry - The Bedouin This is awarded for reaching the objective (the book inside the rail car) without getting detected (full red diamond) by any enemies. Although there are several enemies patrolling the area, the train wreck and rocks provide plenty of cover so you can comfortably use your usual stealth tactics - crouch to move quietly, throw empty shells to control where enemies look/move and use melee takedowns. You start equipped with a dagger (and nothing else) but if you want to you can grab a silenced M1911 pistol from the weapon tent to the east of the wreck. Entering the rail car will end the mission so I would recommend eliminating all of the guards first and then collecting the field manuals before finally activating the hatch on the roof of the black rail car to get the book. o Field Manual #52 Starting from the west side of the black rail car in the middle of the wreck go north for about 20 seconds (running speed). Climb up the first three levels of the big rocky outcrop and you'll find your first collectible among a field of small boulders. o Field Manual #53 From there go towards the east weapon tent. After about 10 seconds (running) stop and look to your right - you should see the next crate behind a smaller outcrop of rocks halfway between the previous crate and the train. o Field Manual #54 Get over to the south-east side of the black car and go south-east for about 5 seconds (running). If you turn around you should spot the third collectible crate behind the rocks there. o Field Manual #55 Next return to the black car and look inside the next car to the south-west. o Field Manual #56 Finally from there go south-east for about 25 seconds (running). When you reach the crest of the dune you should spot a green tent and a French FT tank ahead in the distance. The crate is between some rocks a couple of metres to the south-west of the tent. Take care if you're doing your stealth run because there's a guard stationed at the tent. Spot him with your binos first then flank around and approach from the south using the tent to break his line of sight. Remember to get all five collectibles before completing the objective. o Codex Entry - Celebrities You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 5: Nothing is Written - Chapter 2: Young Men's Work* ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Send encrypted messages from each of the three outposts. This level has three enemy bases - the village to the east, the weapons depot to the north and the ruins to the west (indicated with diamonds on your map). At each base there's one officer who can be identified by his dark clothing and by the star symbol displayed after you spot him. You need to kill each officer, take his special message capsule from his satchel and then go to the indicated pigeon coop to send a message by carrier pigeon. The codex entries and one of the trophies have conflicting requirements so you will definitely need a replay or restart on this mission to get them all. I'd recommend getting the tank and gun kills first and then restarting the mission to get the three required melee kills (and the field manuals). IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before sending the third message. o Codex Entry - Tanks in the Desert This requires you to kill one of the officers using a tank. Head over to the ruins outpost in the west and you can find FT tanks in the north-west and south-west corners of the base. The infantry there can be dispatched readily but you should be prepared to duel with the other tank after raising an alert. It's probably best to either kill the guards (not the officer) by stealth before you take the tank or make the other tank your first target after you start driving one. o Codex Entry - Gertrude Bell For this one you need to kill one officer using a bolt-action rifle. Several of the guards at the ruins outpost are carrying bolt-action Gewehr 98 rifles which you can use for this. The lookout/sniper on the watertower in the south-east corner of the base has a scoped rifle, the guard at the pigeon coop by the south-west corner also has the sniper variant and at least one of the patrolling guards has a standard rifle with iron sights. Alternatively you could go over to the weapons depot in the desert and grab a silenced M1903 Springfield rifle from the weapons tent. (You can also pick up a T-Gewehr anti-tank rifle there but that doesn't count - I did try!) Once you're suitably armed you can track down one of the other officers, kill him with the rifle and then restart the mission. o Trophy #25 - Triple Boluk-Bashi This requires you to kill all three officers with melee attacks. You'll probably want to use stealth to infiltrate each base and stalk your prey! However if you want you can use guns, gadgets and even tanks to kill off the guards before you swoop in to melee the commanders. o Codex Entry - T.E. Lawrence You'll get this during while working on the previous trophy/achievement - the requirement is simply to kill one of the officers with a melee attack. o Field Manual #57 This is almost directly below your starting location. Ride down off the long stone slope then immediately do a U-turn and take the second opening under the slope to access the canyon. (This is "B" flag on the Sinai multiplayer map.) There's a wooden structure here with camouflage netting and you can find the crate between some boxes in the most westerly of the three "rooms". o Field Manual #58 Exit the canyon to the west and ride north-west (towards the moon) until you reach the train track. To the north of the western end of the ruins is a large outcrop of rocks. Ride west along the railroad line and you'll see a natural slope in the rocks that'll take you up to a small plateau with a mounted Maxim machinegun and a lantern flickering behind some sandbags. The crate is behind some boxes and sacks to the north-east of the MG nest. o Field Manual #59 Ride over to the weapon depot base at the north side of the map ("E" flag in Conquest) and enter the main building in the south-west corner of the outpost. The crate is behind a stack of boxes in the north-west corner of the main downstairs room in this house. (You can usually find the officer in this building too. One time when I killed him the body fell on the field manual crate like he was trying to hide it!) o Field Manual #60 Now go over to the large village in the south-east corner of the map. There are two weapon tents on the west side of the village. Go to the more southerly of the two. Due south of there is a single-story house with a small walled compound. The crate is inside the house, between the bunkbeds. o Field Manual #61 Finally cut across (or preferably around) the village to the east side. Go to the watertower and take the ladder up to the gantry. The crate will be on your left at the top of the ladder. Remember to get all five collectibles before sending the third message. o Codex Entry - Women Rise You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. *This chapter is named after a line spoken by Prince Feisal (portrayed by Alec Guinness) at the end of the 1962 movie 'Lawrence of Arabia': "There's nothing further here for a warrior. We drive bargains - old men's work. Young men make wars and the virtues of war are the virtues of young men - courage and hope for the future. Then old men make the peace and the vices of peace are the vices of old men - mistrust and caution. It must be so." .------------------------------------------------------------------------. ( War Story 5: Nothing is Written - Chapter 3: Hear the Desert ) '------------------------------------------------------------------------' Eliminate enemy forces in the village and take on the game's final boss! IMPORTANT: Make sure that you've got all five field manuals (check the pause screen) before killing all the hostiles in the village. o Codex Entry - Desert Cars In the village your objective is to blow up the three Ottoman armoured cars and for this unlock you need to do it without getting spotted by the enemy. (The vehicles will be automatically marked for you but if you spot them with R1 (or RB on Xbox) as they arrive at the start of the mission then all the troops inside will get marked too.) The simplest way to do this is to sneak through the village, place one bundle of dynamite on each vehicle and then detonate all of them simultaneously. The green tent to the north of your starting position has a crate that'll give you three bundles of dynamite, conveniently just enough for your targets. (There's also a silenced M1903 Springfield rifle there if you want it.) Be wary of the sentry on watertower. He'll hear you if you run to the weapon tent and he might spot you as you go about your business in the village so I think it's worth climbing the ladder and taking him out quietly first. The watertower provides a good position from which to recce the village too. Since this is another stealth challenge you might want to focus on completing this first before working on getting the collectibles. If you do get detected (full red diamond) then it's okay to restart from the checkpoint but you'll probably lose some progress. o Field Manual #62 The armoured car nearest your starting position has two small buildings lying immediately to the west. The first field manual is inside the ruined building on the right side (north-west). o Field Manual #63 From there return to the watertower and go north for about 20 seconds (running speed) until you reach two houses. The crate is inside the left house, on the bottom floor, in the north-west corner of the east room. o Field Manual #64 From the houses go west towards the other watertower for about 10 seconds (running). The next crate will be on your left next to a couple of boulders. o Field Manual #65 Continue west to the watertower and just past the tower to the north-west you will find the fourth field manual next to some rocks. o Field Manual #66 From there go south-east to the T-junction in the dirt track, follow the trail south into the village and then go up the sandy slope on your left. You'll come to a large house with sandbags on the corners, camouflage netting over the door and a map chart on the wall. (If you have trouble finding it go to the weapon tent on the south-east side of the village and look for the house to the north with two gas cylinders next to it.) The final crate (whoop!) is inside the house on the bottom floor next to some boxes in the south-west corner of the main room. Remember to get all five collectibles before clearing the village of enemies. o Codex Entry - Guerrilla Warfare You'll get this for finding all five field manuals in this chapter. o Trophy #29 - Enough for a Library You'll get this for finding all 66 field manuals in the campaign. o Codex Entry - Planes Above the Sand After clearing the village your final task is to single-handedly take down the mighty Canavar - the armoured train which also appears in multiplayer as the "Behemoth" on certain maps (including this one). There are several field guns (cannons) along the north-west side of the village which are all conveniently situated to lay down heavy fire onto the train line but as soon as you start using one you'll attract the unwelcome attention of the train crew and they'll destroy it pretty quickly. The requirement for this final codex unlock is to complete the train battle with two field guns still operational, so basically you have to remember to leave two of the guns unused (and generally to stay away from them). There are plenty of other weapons available if you plunder the weapon tents and other weapon crates around the village. You can find rocket guns*, rifle grenades and the 13.2mm Tankgewehr anti-tank rifle (which can all be used at range) plus AT grenades, limpet mines and dynamite. There are also airburst mortars on a couple of rooftops on the south-east side of the village, but only the one on the bigger house can reach to the railway. I did it on Hard difficulty using only pickup weapons. I think I just blew some dynamite under the train at the start and then stuck with mainly using the rocket guns and the T-Gewehr. If you do decide to use the field guns then remember to press Square (or X on Xbox) to reload after each shot and be ready to move away quickly once the train crew starts taking an interest. The train is capable of indirect fire so listen out for the distinctive whistle of incoming shells! After completing all chapters in the campaign remember to play the video called 'Remember Us' from the campaign menu to get your story completion trophies. *During WWI the Vickers Q.F. Gun was sometimes known as the "rocket gun" because its incendiary rounds left fiery trails but it actually fired shells. Their calibre was 1.59" - about the same diameter as modern 40mm grenade launchers. .------------.-----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 07 | DLC TROPHIES s07 | '------------'-----------------------------------------------------------------' Trophies from expansion packs and other downloadable content (DLC) are never required to achieve a game's platinum trophy although they do contribute to your overall percentage trophy completion for the title. In other words you don't need 100% completion on PS4 to get the platinum, you just need to earn all the standard trophies in the original game (see Sections 03 and 05 above). The four multiplayer expansions can be bought individually or as part of the BF1 Premium Pass which is a season pass including all the DLCs. Getting Premium is cheaper than buying each expansion without the subscription and as usual you'll also get access to each DLC two weeks early, monthly battlepacks delivered over fourteen months, server queue priority and exclusive dogtags. The Premium Pass is also included in the Ultimate Edition of the game along with all the cosmetic additions and bonus battlepacks of the Deluxe Edition. Several features from expansions such as new factions, game modes, Elite classes and Behemoths are only available when playing on the maps from the same DLC but guns and melee weapons from an expansion can be equipped and used on all maps and DLC tanks/planes can be selected from vehicle spawns on all maps too. The base game without DLC features a total of six playable factions: the British Empire and their American and Italian allies plus three of the main Central Powers - the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire and the Ottoman Empire. In addition to new maps, modes, guns, etc, the first two expansions also add the French and Russian factions who formed the Triple Entente alongside the Brits. .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 07a | They Shall Not Pass* [TSNP] s07a | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The first multiplayer expansion was released on 14 March 2017 for Premium subscribers and two weeks later on 28 March for non-subscribers. This is known informally as the "French DLC". It adds the French as a playable faction and includes maps in France based on the Battle of Verdun (1916) and the Battle of Soissons (1918) plus four French guns and two French vehicles. There were four French maps at launch and then two night maps - Nivelle* Nights and Prise de Tahure - were added in June and July 2017 respectively. However Nivelle Nights was later added to vanilla servers in November and then Prise de Tahure was added in January 2018 so now the expansion only gives four new maps. Release Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msXl2ZybwTk *The slogan "They shall not pass!" has been used in various countries but it was famously spoken (in French of course) by General Robert Nivelle at the Battle of Verdun. The phrase later appeared on medals commemorating the battle and on a propaganda poster (which was mirrored in the promotional artwork for this DLC). __ 'They Shall Not Pass' adds the following features to the multiplayer game: o four new maps (see above) o French Army faction [see trophy #33] o Frontlines game mode* o two new Operations o six new guns: RSC 1917 (self-loading rifle for Medic) Lebel Model 1886 (bolt-action rifle for Scout) Chauchat (light machinegun for Support) Ribeyrolles 1918 (automatic carbine for Assault) Sjögren Inertial (semi-auto shotgun for Assault) Mle 1903 Extended (pistol variant for Tanker/Pilot) o three new melee weapons: Cogwheel Club, Nail Knife and Trench Fleur o twelve new assignments to unlock the new guns [see trophy #36] and weapons o new vehicle: Saint-Chamond (assault tank) [see trophy #35] o new Behemoth: Char 2C** (super-heavy tank) o new Elite pickup class: Trench Raider [see trophy #34] o new stationary weapon: BL 9.2-inch Siege Gun*** (howitzer) o five new medals o twenty new codex entries (for the new faction, guns, vehicles, maps, etc) o four new trophies/achievements Additionally the game update added the "Exchange" option to the Battlepacks menu which allows you to buy specific battlepack items (weapon skins, puzzle pieces and XP boosts) using the scraps currency you get from selling items. Only a few items are listed but the selection is refreshed periodically. It also raised the level-cap from 100 to 110 and added three new melee weapons to unlock via puzzle pieces from battlepacks: Billhook, Kukri and Saber. (The distinctive Kukri knife - with its long angled blade - is the traditional weapon of the Gurkhas of Nepal. During World War I over 200,000 Gurkhas served in the British Army and three earned the Victory Cross medal for bravery.) *Originally the Frontlines mode was only available to play on French DLC servers but it was subsequently added for several vanilla maps. **The French Char 2C was the biggest tank that ever saw active service - it was 10 metres (33 feet) in length and weighed almost 70 tonnes. ***An example of the British 9.2" howitzer is on permanent display in the World War I gallery at the main London site of the Imperial War Museum. They also have a Mark V tank, various WWI guns and uniforms, trench maces, trench periscopes, plate body armour and BF1's "sniper shield". 33 French War Hero [Bronze/50G] "Spend 30 minutes in-game as French Republic Medic" For this trophy you simply need to use the Medic class for a total of half an hour while playing as the new French faction. You can work towards this over several matches and it's okay to switch classes as necessary. Matches in the They Shall Not Pass expansion are always played with the French against the Germans so you'll need to be playing on the DLC maps. Use the server browser and either look out for "TSNP" servers or filter to find matches on the Verdun Heights, Fort de Vaux, Rupture and Soissons maps. If your team-mates are all wearing blue uniforms then you're on the French side! Also in the top-left corner of the respawn menu you'll see the French Tricolour (the nation's blue, white and red flag) and helpfully it'll also say "Friendly Forces: French Republic". If you're not on the French team then you can either wait until the next match when you'll probably change sides or you can try to switch teams from the Squads screen. The trophy pops during play after completing your 30 mins of service. 34 Drei Vier Grenadier* [Bronze/50G] "Kill 4 enemies with the Trench Raider Elite Class" The Trench Raider is the new Elite pickup class that is only available on the French DLC maps. To play as the class you'll need to find a crate with an available Trench Raider pickup - and grab it before everyone else! The pickup is marked with a round icon with a diagonal club symbol and the announcer voice will tell you when "a Trench Raider kit is available". As usual the Elite pickup crates spawn at fixed locations in certain modes, for example the Raider spawns in the following places in Conquest mode: o Verdun Heights At "C" flag (La Fontaine Ruins) at the centre of the map. The crate's in the north-east corner of the undercroft below the ruins. It first spawns around 1 min 4 secs after the match begins. o Rupture At "C" flag (Aisne-Vesle Bridge) at the centre of the map. The crate's underneath the large railway bridge - between the supporting columns - on the south (French) side of the bridge. It first spawns around 1 min 5 secs after the match begins. o Soissons At "B" flag (Chaudun Village) towards the east (French) side of the map. The crate's outside the house immediately to the north-west of the central bridge (the bridge that's directly to the south-west of the "B" flag). It first spawns around 2 mins 33 secs after the match begins. Additionally on the two maps without vehicles the losing team doesn't get a Behemoth but instead gains access to the Siege Gun howitzer in their base plus a selection of Elite class pickups including the Trench Raider. __ The Trench Raider is a melee specialist. In addition to having body armour, his primary weapon is the spiked Raider Club which gives one-hit kills and without the usual slow takedown animation. However he also carries a No. 3 revolver as a sidearm and three frag grenades (so you have two options for kills at (short) range) plus smoke grenades and health packs as gadgets. If you play sensibly you should have no trouble getting the four kills you need for the trophy - I got a 23 killstreak on my first time using the class! It's easiest to find and take advantage of the pickup in Conquest on Verdun Heights. When the DLC first released you could join on the Rupture map on a DICE server which was always followed by Verdun Heights in the standard map rotation so you could spawn in quickly at the start of the match and rush to the middle "C" flag. However the Spring Update in April 2017 replaced the map rotation with map voting on "Official" servers, also now more players will know how to exploit the Trench Raider on that map by playing in the church's cellar and around the ruins above. Now instead I would suggest learning the location of the small pickup crate on all three maps. You can still rush there at the very start of a match but if someone beats you to the pickup you'll need to camp around the area until they die and the pickup respawns at the same location. Once you get the Trench Raider you can take advantage of your quick one-hit kill melee attack by staying in confined spaces such as buildings or trenches around an objective; you can also drop smoke for added concealment although smart players will recognise this as a sign that the Raider could be nearby. If you ever find yourself outnumbered or outgunned just run into cover and get your medic crate down asap to start healing. *BF1's Trench Raider class was inspired by France's armoured grenadiers. The title of this trophy appears to be a reference to an old techno song I used to hear on MTV Europe in the mid-90s! 'Eins, Zwei, Polizei' by Italian act Mo-Do featured the repeated German lyrics "eins zwei Polizei" (one two police), "drei vier Grenadier" (three four grenadier), "fünf sechs alte Hex" (five six old witch) - except I used to think it was "alte Keks" which means "old biscuit"! - and "sieben acht gute Nacht" (seven eight good night). I see that Mo-Do's single reached the top ten in several European countries including Sweden so I guess it made an impression on someone at DICE HQ. :) 35 Saint-Chamond Operator [Bronze/50G] "Kill 25 enemies with the St-Chamond Heavy Tank" The French Saint-Chamond appears in BF1 as an "assault tank". Although the DLC is required to use it, it can be selected from any available tank spawn icon (on the respawn screen) on any map. There are three different loadout configurations which are all unlocked by default and can be changed from an available tank spawn icon during play. o Field Assault Tank The driver can switch between two options on the main 75mm gun - case cannon and low-velocity HE (high explosive). They also get the emergency repair function and a messenger pigeon which can be released to call in an artillery strike directly on the tank's position (causing minor damage). There are four passenger seats, each with a heavy machinegun* (HMG). o Gas Assault Tank The driver can switch between two options on the main 75mm gun - airburst shells and gas shells. They also get emergency reps and a gas emitter. There are four passenger seats, each with a heavy machinegun* (HMG). o Standoff Assault Tank The driver can switch between the 75mm gun with high-velocity HE rounds and a heavy machinegun (HMG). They also get a searchlight which can spot (and dazzle) enemy players and a smoke emitter. There are only three passenger seats, each with a heavy machinegun.* Deploying a new tank from the respawn screen is the best option since the driver has access to the primary weapons and the gadgets plus you can use the standard repair function from inside or hop out and use your repair tool. (If you're playing purely to farm kills for the trophy/achievement then the carrier pigeon can be devastating if you're able to push onto an objective (like a Conquest flag) that's occupied by large numbers of enemies.) However you can enter a Saint-Chamond that's already on the field and use one of the MG firing ports; you can climb into a nearby tank or spawn into one directly from the respawn screen (the St-Chamond icon has two small circles). It's possible to pick up kills this way but the MG's are less effective - even if you're able to get a seat on the side that's facing enemies - and often your weapon will get disabled after taking damage. *In real life the Saint-Chamond tank was equipped with four Hotchkiss M1914 machineguns - this was the successor to the Hotchkiss M1909 (Benét-Mercié). 36 Maître d'Armes* [Gold/100G] "Perform one kill with each of the 5 primary Weapon Assignments weapons" The following guns are the five new primaries in the They Shall Not Pass DLC. Medic class: RSC 1917 (self-loading rifle) Scout class: Lebel Model 1886 (bolt-action rifle) Support class: Chauchat (light machinegun) Assault class: Ribeyrolles 1918 (automatic carbine) Sjögren Inertial (semi-auto shotgun) For the trophy you need to get one kill with each of these weapons. There are two variants each of the Medic, Scout and Support guns** but you only need to get a kill with one variant so you can use whichever you unlock/find first. Since there are only enough warbonds available from ranking up to buy all the gear in the base game, DLC weapons are unlocked by completing assignments. Each assignment has requirements to complete and - unlike the medal system - all the requirements of all available assignments are always active. The assignments for the French DLC weapons are explained below but you can also track your progress by viewing the unlockable weapon on the Weapons & Gadgets screen or on the Customize (loadout) screen during a match. Each time you complete an action that contributes to an assignment you'll get a brief update on the left side of your screen during play. The assignments require you to use specific guns and gadgets. If you don't have these available you'll need to pay warbonds to unlock them and in a few cases you may need to grind your class level to make them available, for example the Model 10-A (Slug variant) shotgun requires Assault rank 3. Make sure you use the required variant of each gun too. When a player dies you can interact with their gun to pick up their loadout including their primary and secondary guns. If you happen to spot one of the DLC guns (use the loadout menu pics for reference) you can pick it up and use it. Also if you have a friend who's unlocked one of the DLC guns you can get them to equip it so you can take it after they die. Kills with pickup weapons do count towards this trophy - I was able to test this as I happened to find a dropped kit with a Chauchat LMG before I'd unlocked it. *Maître d'Armes means literally "Master of Arms" in French although the term is normally used to refer to a teacher of fencing or other martial arts. **Originally there was only one version each of the two Assault weapons but new variants were added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018. The Ribeyrolles Optical and Sjögren Slug have no unlock requirements but I don't know whether kills with these versions count for this trophy. RSC 1917 (Factory variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The RSC fires at 179 RPM (semi-auto only) which makes it significantly slower than the self-loading rifles in the base game, however it has a higher damage profile which gives a two-hit kill out to 70 metres. It only holds six rounds but it always reloads from a clip so you never load individual cartridges. To unlock this gun you need to complete the following two assignment tasks: o get 50 kills with the M1907 SL (Sweeper variant) The SL Sweeper rifle can be bought for 200 warbonds (see trophy #05). You can use it on semi-auto or full auto at a decent 299 RPM (rounds per minute). It has a long detachable magazine for a 20+1 ammo capacity and it gives a standard three-hit kill out to 38 metres. If you do 75+ damage to an enemy and a team-mate then steals your kill you get an "assist counts as kill" which will be counted toward your total. o revive 50 team-mates The syringe (gadget) is available by default. Dead friendlies are marked on your minimap with skull & crossbones icons and any team-mate that can be revived by syringe will have a skull icon on their body. If the skull icon is flashing that means they're skipping back to the respawn screen so you might not be able to catch them in time. RSC 1917 (Optical variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Compared to the Factory model, the RSC Optical has a basic red-dot style optic (with slightly higher magnification options), better aimed accuracy and less spread increase per shot but slower spread reset. o get 15 kills with the Autoloading 8 .35 (Factory variant) in one match The Auto 8 Factory rifle can be bought for 200 warbonds at Medic rank 1. It fires at a rapid 359 RPM and gives a standard three-hit kill all the way out to 70 metres but it only holds five rounds. For any assignment requirement which needs a certain number of actions in one match it's obviously best to go for longer matches in the big modes like Conquest and Operations. There are also reports of a bug whereby you lose all progress on any such requirements if you haven't already completed the other requirement in the same assignment. (Certainly I had to complete this requirement three times before it registered so that might've been the issue for me too.) o get 75 heals The bandage pouch (gadget) is available by default and the medical crate (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. Simply stick with some team-mates and keep throwing out bandages as often as possible or drop a crate when your group stops at an objective. Ribeyrolles 1918 (Factory variant)* (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Ribeyrolles fits loosely into the SMG category (and it's counted as an SMG for medal completion) but it fires an early example of an intermediate calibre so it's actually more like a precursor of the modern carbines that are effectively short assault rifles. Compared to the MP18 it fires at the same 550 RPM rate and does the same 28 max damage so the two guns have very similar TTK's (times to kill) in close quarters. The MP18 holds seven more rounds, with slightly better vertical recoil and much better accuracy while moving. However the Ribeyrolles has slightly better long-range damage and less horizontal recoil plus it's fitted with a large bipod which gives greater control when you use the weapon in the prone stance or mounted on a suitable ledge. o get 50 kills with the Automatico M1918 (Factory variant) The Automatico Factory submachinegun can be bought for 200 warbonds. It fires 9mm rounds at a rapid 900 RPM and it can kill in just over a quarter of a second at short range. However it empties its 25-round mags pretty quickly and it has very high horizontal recoil (especially since the French DLC patch which applied a +50% nerf). o get 20 headshot kills with the MP18 (Optical variant) The MP18 Optical submachinegun can be bought for 200 warbonds. When an assignment requires headshots you specifically need to get kills with headshots - you'll get the Headshot Bonus in your score feed and of course the assignment progress will be tracked on the screen too. This is arguably the toughest of the assignment requirements in this DLC. The most effective way to use an SMG is usually to spray rounds into your target's torso so headshot kills are rare. When the DLC released in March 2017 the MP18 Optical was my top primary weapon (20 service stars) but only 11% of my kills with it were from headshots. While engaging an enemy it's possible to steer your aim up into a headshot - this can give a quicker kill thanks to the headshot damage multiplier but the head has a smaller hitbox to it's harder to land your shots. If you happen to encounter a prone enemy who's facing you and you can pick them off with rapid tapfire you'll often get a headshot kill too. *An Optical variant was added in the "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018. Sjögren Inertial (Factory variant)* (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This Swedish shotgun holds five buckshot shells. Originally BF1's buckshot shotguns had the same damage profile and were balanced primarily by the fire-rate and the number of pellets per shell but since the Jan/Feb 2018 patches they all have the same number of pellets and they're balanced by their damage profile and rate of fire. Compared to the Sjögren Inertial, the 12g Automatic fires faster but does less damage per pellet while the Model 10-A and M97 Trench Gun both do more damage but shoot slower. o get 50 kills with the Model 10-A (Slug variant) The Model 10 Slug shotgun can be bought for 200 warbonds at Assault rank 3. This variant fires a single large projectile per shell. This does enough damage to give a one-hit kill (lower torso or upper arms) out to 8 metres or a one-hit kill (upper torso) out to 11 metres. It's worth taking an extra split-second to line up that first shot since the gun fires at a slow 78 RPM and you may not get the chance for another! o get 15 kills with the M97 Trench Gun (Hunter variant) in one match The M97 Hunter shotgun can be bought for 200 warbonds at Assault rank 1. This fires buckshot with 12 pellets per shell each doing a maximum damage of 10 out to around 12 metres. This is best used in close-quarters in smaller modes or indoors, around buildings, in trenches and by objectives on bigger maps in the large-scale modes like Conquest. *A Slug variant was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018. Chauchat (Low Weight variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The unusual semi-circular magazine of this French machinegun has the same 20-round capacity as the BAR 1918. The Chauchat fires a lot slower and it has very high vertical recoil but it also has a much higher damage profile which gives a three-hit kill out to 20 metres and then a four-hit kill. o get 50 kills with the Lewis Gun (Suppressive variant) The Lewis Suppressive machinegun can be bought for 200 warbonds. Although this infantry version isn't modelled correctly, it has the larger 97-round magazine which was used with anti-aircraft models. It fires at 480 RPM and gives a standard four-hit kill out to 12 metres. This Suppressive model also has a bipod (which can be deployed when prone or next to a ledge) and a small scope with 2.0x to 3.5x zoom options. o get 75 ammo resupplies The ammo pouch (gadget) is available by default and the ammo crate (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. You're playing the "Support" class so you simply need to support your team by constantly chucking ammo at them. Chauchat (Telescopic variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Telescopic model is fitted with a scope with 2.5x to 4.0x magnification options. It also has better stationary aimed accuracy. o get 15 kills with the M1909 Benét–Mercié (Telescopic variant) The 1909 Telescopic MG can be bought for 200 warbonds at Support rank 1. It feeds from a horizontal 30-round strip (which gives a clear indication of how many rounds you've fired) and shoots at 450 RPM giving a four-hit kill out to 12 metres. It's fitted with a scope and a big-ass tripod. o get 10 kills with the mortar The airburst mortar (gadget) is available by default and the HE mortar (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. You can use either version for this but the airburst model improves your chances of killing infantry. The mortar can be used to lay down indirect fire over cover or terrain. I like to use it in Conquest mode on Suez and Argonne Forest (although you need to watch - and listen - for trees blocking your shots). After deploying the mortar you'll get a small map interface which you can use to aim. This is most effective when several enemies have been spotted but otherwise you can just fire the first of your five shots and use the bird's eye view for reconnaissance. The aiming circle indicates how the mortar becomes more accurate if you wait before firing. Good targets are exposed stationary infantry, for example tight clusters at small flags in Conquest mode and prone snipers on hilltops. Lebel Model 1886 (Infantry variant) (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The French DLC's sniper rifle fires at 56 RPM which is slightly faster than most of the single-action rifles in the base game. It does 100 damage from 50 to 87 metres (for one-hit kills on chest shots) and it holds eight rounds although the underbarrel tube magazine cannot be speed-loaded with a clip. o get 50 kills with the Gewehr M.95 (Infantry variant) The M.95 Infantry rifle can be bought for 200 warbonds. Its damage profile gives a one-hit kill (head) at any range or a two-hit kill (torso/limbs) at any range although the effective range is limited as you use iron sights instead of optics. Its fire-rate is 66 RPM - slightly faster than most of the vanilla Scout rifles - and it holds five rounds which are always reloaded with clips. I was already enjoying the Russian 1895 (Trench variant) so I was able to transition comfortably to the M.95 Infantry. It fires slower but it does more damage at all ranges so you're more likely to get a one-hit kill on a wounded enemy and it does enough damage to potentially give you an "assist counts as kill" off a single shot at any range (upper torso) or out to just over 100 metres (lower torso and limbs). o get 20 spot flare assists The spotting flare gun (gadget) is available by default. Simply fire this onto the ground in an area containing unmarked enemies and they'll be temporarily spotted for your team. Each time one of your team-mates kills an enemy you spotted you'll get one spot assist bonus. Lebel Model 1886 (Sniper variant) (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Sniper model has identical stats to the Infantry one but - as you might expect - it's fitted with a long-range scope. o get 5 headshot kills with the Russian 1895 (Sniper variant) in one match The 1895 Sniper rifle can be bought for 200 warbonds. Its damage profile gives a one-hit kill (head) at any range or a one-hit kill (upper torso) at ranges between approximately 60 and 100 metres. It's fitted with a sniper scope and it also has a bipod which will remove scope sway and greatly reduce recoil. It has a high muzzle-velocity which will reduce the bullet-drop effect of gravity but if necessary you can use zeroing (d-pad down) to adjust your sights for different ranges. (If you're not a fan of sniping you don't need to unlock this weapon for the trophy because you can get the Infantry variant instead. However you could try hunting for stationary targets like snipers and campers and then pick them off potentially at quite short range.) o get 10 periscope spot assists The trench periscope (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. It's a combination of binoculars and a periscope which can be used to spot enemies at long range (and potentially while you're behind cover). It also has a basic range-finder that shows the distance to your point of aim. After equipping and selecting the periscope you can hold the left trigger to enter the zoomed view. When you see an enemy just keep them in the centre of your scope and they'll automatically be spotted with a red outline similar to the effect on the kill-cam. However the spot will be lost if they move behind cover and break your line of sight. If a spotted enemy gets killed then you earn one Periscope Spot Bonus. This works best on large open maps where you can spot enemies at long range but try to focus on spotting players that your team-mates can reach. .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 07b | In the Name of the Tsar [TSAR] s07b | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The second multiplayer expansion was released on 5 September 2017 for Premium subscribers and two weeks later on 19 September for non-subscribers. This is known informally as the "Russian DLC". It adds the Russians as playable factions, features maps set on the snowy Eastern Front and during the Russian Revolution and includes several Russian guns and vehicles. The Lupkow Pass map was released for Premium players on 21 August, two weeks ahead of the main expansion. The rest of the content followed on 5 September. Teaser Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3zza3ofZ0Q __ 'In the Name of the Tsar' adds the following features to the multiplayer game: o six new maps [see trophy #40] o Russian Empire faction (and Red Army faction on two maps) [see trophy #37] o Supply Drop game mode [see trophy #39] o two new Operations [see trophy #37] o eleven new guns: Fedorov Avtomat (self-loading rifle for Medic) General Liu Rifle (self-loading rifle for Medic) Mosin-Nagant M91 (bolt-action rifle for Scout) Vetterli-Vitali M1870/87 (bolt-action rifle for Scout) Parabellum MG14/17 (light machinegun for Support) Perino Model 1908 (light machinegun for Support) Model 1900 (double-barrel shotgun for Assault) SMG08/18 (submachinegun for Assault) Nagant Revolver (sidearm) Obrez Pistol (sawn-off bolt-action rifle sidearm) C93 Carbine (suppressed pistol variant for Tanker/Pilot) o new grenade: Russian Standard Grenade (replaces default grenade for Russians) o new melee weapon: Cossack Dagger (unlocked by default) o nineteen new assignments to unlock the new guns [see trophy #41] o new vehicles: Ilya-Muromets (heavy bomber) Putilov-Garford (heavy armoured car) Y-Lighter Landing Craft (boat) o new cavalry weapon: Russian Hussar lance [see trophy #38] o new stationary weapon: Obukhovskii 12" 52 Pattern (coastal gun battery) o five new medals o thirty new codex entries (for the new faction, guns, vehicles, maps, etc) o five new trophies/achievements Additionally the game update added service assignments which unlock the new specialisations (perks), raised the level-cap from 110 to 120 and added the Dud Club as a new melee weapon to unlock via puzzle pieces from battlepacks. 37 The Revolution* is Coming [Bronze/25G] "Play all 'In the Name of the Tsar' operations" The Russian DLC features two new operations using the Russian maps: o Brusilov Offensive o Red Tide For this trophy you simply need to join matches on both operations and stay on those servers until the final "end of round" screen. *The Russian Revolution - actually two separate revolutions - took place in 1917 during World War I. This saw the abdication of Emperor Nicholas II, the fall of the Russian Empire and the foundation of the Soviet Union. On all six maps of the Tsar expansion one team plays as the White Guard of the Russian Empire but on Tsaritsyn and Volga River (and in the operation Red Tide which uses those two maps) a second Russian faction is also available - the Bolshevik Red Army. (Also BF1's Russian expansion became available shortly after the release of "Battlefield 1 Revolution" which bundles the season pass with the base game.) 38 Charged into Battle [Bronze/50G] "Kill 25 enemies with the Lance as Cavalry" Inspired by the Russian Hussars, the Tsar expansion adds a lance as a new mounted melee weapon option for the Cavalry class. You'll need to equip the weapon before you can use this so look out for an available cavalry spawn from the respawn screen during a match, select this and then change the slot with the Cavalry Sword to the Cavalry Lance. The lance will be selected by default and you can still toggle between the lance and your rifle as usual by pressing Triangle (PS4) or Y (Xbone). There are three attacks available with the lance. When you're stationary or trotting slowly you can press your right trigger to perform a wide swipe. When you're galloping (sprinting) you can either tap the right trigger to use a quick jab or hold the left trigger to perform a cavalry charge with the lance which is fairly similar to the infantry's bayonet charge. This seems to give a risk/reward strategy - it's easier to hit your targets with the broad arc of the swinging attack but you'll be more vulnerable when moving slower. Also you need to go slightly to the left of your targets in order to avoid trampling them for a roadkill - when you successfully get a lance kill it will be displayed as such in your score feed and kill feed. The lance is only available when you spawn directly onto a horse from the respawn screen. If you find an abandoned horse in the field and mount it you will get the sword even if your Cavalry class loadout has the lance. You can track your lance kills under: Soldier \ Weapons & Gadgets \ Cavalry The Apocalypse DLC patch in February 2018 had some buffs for cavalry. You can now heal yourself and your horse with your medic bag while mounted (tap d-pad right) and you have better damage resistance while mounted also. 39 Secured the Resources [Bronze/50G] "Win 5 games of Supply Drop" Supply Drop is the new multiplayer mode added with the Russian DLC, seemingly designed specifically for farming kills with the mortar* - or possibly for farming kills off oblivious mortar users. :) The basic concept is quite similar to Drop Zone mode in DICE's 2015 Star Wars Battlefront game - two teams compete to secure a succession of airdropped resources by standing close to them (like Conquest flag captures). In BF1 (Battlefield 1, not Battlefront 1!) the supply crates are dropped by parachute from a plane. Only one crate is delivered at a time but sometimes two or even three crates will be on the field simultaneously. Each supply crate has a small circular capture radius on the minimap, only a few metres across. When one or more players are inside the circle they can gradually collect the resources - their team will start to score points and all nearby players on their team will score XP in increments. Crates are marked with circular icons which indicate how many supplies (or points) are still available to collect. If your team is currently capturing a crate its icon will be blue (default colour settings) or if the enemy team is there the icon is red. The display also shows the distance to the crate. Once a crate has been totally depleted a Supply Drop Emptied bonus (500 XP) is awarded and an Elite pickup class crate will spawn at the location. The first team to reach 500 points from crate captures wins the match. Of course the most useful role to support your team is to capture crates. Try to find any cover available but be wary of going prone since it'll take more time to move when the inevitable mortar fire arrives. Keep the default Flak perk equipped to give a little extra protection against grenade spam. Other useful tasks are defending the perimeter around a crate and disrupting the enemy team's efforts to capture crates themselves. The Medic class can help to keep team-mates alive at a crate, Scout can use the spotting flare to detect approaching enemies and Support can utilise the mortar to bombard enemy capture sites (and enemy mortar users). *The unlock assignment for the Low Weight variant of the Parabellum MG (see trophy #41) requires twenty kills with the airburst mortar. 40 Endured the Winter [Bronze/25G] "Play a round on all 'In the Name of the Tsar' maps" The Russian DLC features six new multiplayer maps: o Albion o Brusilov Keep o Galicia o Lupkow Pass o Tsaritsyn o Volga River For this trophy you simply need to join matches on all six maps and stay in them until the final "end of round" screen. With map voting now standard on official servers you can't reliably get all six maps just by staying on the same server. I'd recommend that you play on any server available, make a note of each map on which you finish a match and then use the server browser to find a game on any maps you've missed. Alternatively I suppose if you're lucky you might be able to find a populated custom rental server with all six maps on rotation and map voting disabled. 41 Filled the Stockpile [Gold/100G] "Perform a kill with all 'In the Name of the Tsar' weapon variants" "Maître d'Armes" (trophy #36) in the French DLC required you to get one kill with one variant each of five new guns but the Russian DLC adds eight guns each with two variants plus three other guns and this time you're required to get a kill with all variants so that's nineteen weapons in total... glhf! :9 Each gun (and variant) is unlocked by an assignment again and I've given details of the requirements for these below. You can also pick up a weapon from a dead player if you find one or have a boosting partner. Model 1900 (Factory variant) (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Model 1900 is a full-length double-barrel shotgun. By toggling the fire mode (d-pad down) you can choose whether to fire both barrels simultaneously or separately. Since the shells load directly into the barrels there is no magazine so you're stuck with a slow reload after discharging both rounds. The Factory variant uses buckshot shells which have the same damage drop-off and pellet count as the Model 10. The 1900 gives a faster follow-up shot but the Model 10 holds four extra shells in its underbarrel tube mag. To unlock this gun you need to complete the following two assignment tasks: o get 40 kills with the M97 Trench Gun (Backbored variant) The M97 Trench shotgun can be bought for 200 warbonds. This fires buckshot with 12 pellets per shell each doing a maximum damage of 10 out to 12 metres. The Backbored version has significantly better recoil and recoil recovery compared to the Hunter model. o get 5 kills with the AT Rocket Gun in one match The anti-tank rocket gun (gadget) is available by default. The in-game text prompts you to use the rocket gun from the prone stance but you can also use it when crouched behind a ledge or windowsill. It's obviously intended primarily as an anti-vehicle weapon and if you're lucky enough to land the killing blow on a full tank before anyone bails you could even get five kills off a single shot. However you might need to resort to camping and (ab)using it as a one-hit sniper against infantry. Aim at the body or the ground near their feet. Model 1900 (Slug variant) (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This variant fires a single large projectile per shell. This does enough damage to give a one-hit kill (lower torso or upper arms) out to 8 metres or a one-hit kill (upper torso) out to 11 metres. o get 50 kills with the 12g Automatic (Extended variant) The 12g Extended shotgun can be bought for 200 warbonds at Assault rank 3. It trades fire-rate for damage potential - it fires on semi-auto at a rapid 257 RPM but it does less damage per pellet than the other shotguns. The Extended version holds an additional two shells (for seven in total). o get 20 kills with the Gasser M1870 The Gasser revolver can be bought for 150 warbonds. It fires up to three rounds per second and gives a two-hit kill on basic body-shots out to 22 metres but its reload animation is painfully slow. The Gasser is named after its designer. Sadly it doesn't fire poison gas! SMG08/18 (Factory variant) (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This is a prototypical 9mm SMG design based on the Maxim machinegun. At launch it fired at a slow 450 RPM but with exceptionally low horizontal and vertical recoil. However it got rebalanced in the February 2018 update and now fires at 770 RPM which puts it midway between the Automatico and the Hellriegel although with slightly better damage. It also now has very high vertical and horizontal recoil so its role is completely different - it's most effective at short ranges and pretty handy for clearing trenches. One thing that remained unchanged however is its massive 80-round magazine, but take care when mag-dumping because it jams after 30 shots. o get 15 kills with the MP18 (Trench variant) The MP18 Trench is available by default. It fires at 550 RPM and gives a four-hit kill out to 12 metres. o get 10 kills with the Anti-Tank Grenade The Anti-Tank Grenade (gadget) is available by default. You can pick up kills if you're able to get the killing blow on a vehicle before the driver or crew bails but you can also use it to supplement a close-quarters loadout for use indoors and in trench combat. I was able to get a few kills off players who were trying to farm mortar kills for the Parabellum unlock assignment (see below). SMG08/18 (Optical variant) (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This version has an optical sight and improved aimed accuracy but it has a larger first-shot recoil multiplier and slower recoil/spread recovery. o get 50 kills with the Automatico M1918 (Trench variant) The Automatico Trench can be bought for 200 warbonds at Assault rank 1. It fires 9mm rounds at a rapid 900 RPM and it can kill in just over a quarter of a second at short range. However it empties its 25-round mags pretty quickly and it has very high horizontal recoil. Compared to the Factory model the Automatico Trench has tighter hipfire but a larger first-shot recoil multiplier and slower recoil/spread recovery. The Automatico obviously excels in short-range encounters, for example in the Cathedral of Light on the Tsaritsyn map in the Russian DLC. o destroy 5 tanks with the Anti-Tank Mine The Anti-Tank Mine (gadget) is available by default. I've been a big fan of anti-vehicle mines since Bad Company 2 and I could write an essay on their effective use - I could but I won't. :P The short version is that mines are best used at narrow bottle-necks on popular vehicle routes and hidden in craters, water or dips. You can often pick up kills by deploying them on the main road on the Monte Grappa map - put them on the enemy side of the map, hidden in grass or craters. Since the January 2018 update you can no longer stack mines or plant them right next to each other and the blast radius was reduced from 5 metres to 2 metres. However you can still position them close enough that one detonation will trigger the other two and the damage per mine was raised by 50% in the same patch. Fedorov Avtomat (Trench variant)* (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ With its relatively rapid 450-RPM automatic fire and detachable 25-round mag the Fedorov is the closest thing to a modern assault rifle in this class. It gives good DPS in close quarters and faster reloads. The trade-off is that it has a lower damage profile, giving a four-hit kill out to 30 metres, five to 38 metres and then six beyond that. o get 40 kills with the Cei-Rigotti (Trench variant) The Cei-Rigotti Trench can be bought for 200 warbonds at Medic rank 1. It fires at a slower 299 RPM and has an internal 10-round magazine loaded by stripper clips or individual cartridges. Its higher damage profile gives a three-hit kill on standard chest-shots out to 54 metres. As usual the Trench variant gets superior hipfire accuracy. o get 40 squad heals The bandage pouch (gadget) is available by default and the medical crate (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. Simply stick with your squad-mates and keep throwing out bandages as often as possible or drop a crate when your group stops at an objective. *The prototype Fedorov-Degtyarev model was one of five new variants added as a Battlefield V pre-order bonus (after the BFV reveal in late May 2018) but that later addition would not be required for this trophy. Fedorov Avtomat (Optical variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Optical version has better aimed accuracy and inferior hipfire accuracy. o get 50 kills with the Selbstlader M1916 (Optical variant) The "Stepladder" Optical can be bought for 200 warbonds at Medic rank 3. It fires at up to 224 RPM, holds 26 rounds and gives a standard three-hit kill at all ranges. The Optical model adds an optical sight and gives you superior accuracy in ADS (aim down sights). o get 20 kills with the C96 The Mauser C96 pistol can be bought for 150 warbonds. This standard sidearm version is exclusive to the Medic class. I'm going to assume the carbine variant (Pilot/Tanker classes) doesn't count towards this assignment. It gives a four-hit kill out to 16 metres or a three-hit kill to 14 metres in Hardcore mode. It holds ten rounds and fires at up to 299 RPM so it's pretty good for spamming at enemies. It reloads very slowly with individual cartridges but if it's completely empty it reloads much faster with a single 10-round clip. General Liu Rifle (Factory variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This Chinese semi-auto rifle combines the higher damage profile of the two Selbstlader rifles and the Mondragón with the fire-rate of the Cei-Rigotti, however this Factory version has very high vertical recoil so you'll need to fire much slower to land follow-up shots at range. Also the internal magazine only holds six rounds, reloaded with individual cartridges or with a stripper clip when empty. In real-life the General Liu could be switched between semi-automatic and bolt-action modes; this feature was added to both variants of the gun in the June 2018 patch, with the bolt action available as a secondary fire mode. In bolt-action mode it has the same damage profile as the Gewehr 98 so it has a "sweet spot" where it does 100 damage between 80 and 125 metres, although both variants only have iron sights which limit the potential for long-range sniping. It does 80+ damage at other ranges though so it gives a standard two-hit kill or a one-hit kill with a headshot. o get 40 kills with the Mondragón (Storm variant) The "Moon-Dragon" Storm can be bought for 200 warbonds at Medic rank 1. It fires at 257 RPM, holds ten rounds and gives a three-hit kill at all ranges. The Storm model has substantially lower vertical and horizontal recoil but slightly worse aimed accuracy. o get 30 squad revives The syringe (gadget) is available by default. Dead friendlies are marked on your minimap with skull & crossbones icons and any team-mate that can be revived by syringe will have a skull icon on their body. If the skull icon is flashing that means they're skipping back to the respawn screen so you might not be able to catch them in time but a new feature allows you to aim at their body and "spot" them (with R1/RB) to let them know you're on your way to revive them. Since you specifically require squad revives here you'll want to join a full squad, ideally with players that stick together and die a lot. :) General Liu Rifle (Storm variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Compared to the Factory version the Storm model has greatly reduced vertical and horizontal recoil but its recoil and spread recovery rates are slower. In real-life the General Liu could be switched between semi-automatic and bolt-action modes; this feature was added to both variants of the gun in the June 2018 patch, with the bolt action available as a secondary fire mode. o get 50 kills with the Autoloading 8 .35 (Marksman variant) The Auto 8 Marksman can be bought for 200 warbonds at Medic rank 3. It fires at a rapid 359 RPM and gives a standard three-hit kill all the way out to 70 metres but it only holds five rounds. The Marksman variant gives you a magnifying scope, better aimed accuracy when stationary and reduced spread increase per shot in ADS. o get 30 kills with the Rifle Grenade FRG The Rifle Grenade FRG (gadget) is available by default. The Medic's noob-tube is handy for launching grenades through windows or around corners. It should work best for indirect fire on injured enemies during sustained firefights in a tight indoor environments. Parabellum MG14/17 (Low Weight variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Parabellum fires at a high 700 RPM and is fed by a 100-round belt but it also has very high horizontal recoil, high vertical recoil, slow reloads and poor hipfire spread. o destroy 2 airplanes with LMGs This is easily the most frustrating of the unlock requirements in the Russian expansion, but at least you don't need to kill the pilots. You can use any of the Support class primary weapons for this but you can improve your prospects by seeking a gun with some combination of higher damage at long ranges, larger ammo capacity, faster bullet velocity, good fire-rate and a bipod for stability. The MG15 n.A. is a good choice overall. It has excellent muzzle velocity and a decent rate of fire plus the Suppressive variant has a 200-round belt although it overheats after 35 rounds so you'll want to use shorter bursts. If you unlock the Suppressive variant of the Parabellum first (see below) then that's worth using too. It has a very high fire-rate, 100-round ammo belt and high muzzle velocity so it's easier to hit a moving target. Try to set up in a safe spot where you can deploy your bipod and have enemy aircraft flying overhead. Operations mode has vehicles and the teams tend to stick to their own side of the map so that should be a good option. Look out especially for enemy bombers because these larger and slower aircraft make much easier targets for sustained MG fire. Ideally you'll want to find a plane that's taken substantial damage already but you can always try weakening one with an anti-aircraft turret first. The Shock Operations update on 27 June 2018 added the Burton LMR (Light Machine Rifle) for the Support class. In real life this was only ever a prototype but it was designed to destroy enemy observation balloons so it used an incendiary version of .351 WSL round. DICE have reflected this in the game by providing a secondary fire mode that uses incendiary ammo. This does less damage versus infantry but it does considerably more damage to airplanes (and airships). You might want to try using the Burton for this assignment, although the small 20-round magazine needs frequent reloads. (The Burton can be unlocked by getting fifty "capture point defence kills". I tested this in various modes and you can make progress in Operations, Shock Operations, Conquest, Domination and Frontlines. You need to defend flags that are currently your team's colour, either currently capturing or fully captured. Either you or the enemy has to be at the friendly flag.) o get 20 kills with the Mortar Airburst The airburst mortar (gadget) is available by default. The mortar can be used to lay down indirect fire over cover or terrain. I like to use it in Conquest mode on Suez and Argonne Forest (although you need to watch - and listen - for trees blocking your shots). It's also pretty handy on Achi Baba in the Turning Tides pack. After deploying the mortar you'll get a small map interface which you can use to aim. This is most effective when several enemies have been spotted but otherwise you can just fire the first of your five shots and use the bird's eye view for reconnaissance. The aiming circle indicates how the mortar becomes more accurate if you wait before firing. Good targets are exposed stationary infantry, for example tight clusters at small flags in Conquest mode, static defenders in Operations or Rush and prone snipers on hilltops. The Russian DLC adds Supply Drop mode (see trophy #39) where it's very easy to farm kills with the mortar - the capture areas on the crates are compact and the crate icon will turn red to indicate when enemy players are there. If players on the other team are using mortars then they'll be stationary and automatically marked on your map so they make great targets too. Parabellum MG14/17 (Suppressive variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Suppressive model of the MG14 is fitted with a magnifying scope. Statistically compared to the Low Weight variant it has slower recovery on recoil and spread and it has lower negative spread "increase" per shot so it takes longer to get more accurate during sustained fire. o get 40 kills with the Lewis Gun (Low Weight variant) The Lewis Low Weight is available by default. It fires at 480 RPM and gives a standard four-hit kill out to 12 metres. The Low Weight model gets more accurate sooner during a long burst and it recovers faster from recoil and spread. o get 50 vehicle repairs The repair tool (gadget) is available by default. Tanks are best for this since they can survive a couple of rocket shots without getting wrecked and the larger ones have extra seats. Pick a map/mode with lots of tanks - I played Conquest mode on Volga River. Equip the repair tool and spawn into a friendly tank from the respawn screen. When the tank stops and takes damage, hop out and repair it. Try to stay on the safer side away from enemies and either strafe left/right or go prone to avoid getting shot. Completing the 'Engineer' service assignment gives an equippable perk which increases your walk speed by 25% and reduces explosive damage by 20% but both specifically only when you have your repair tool ready. Perino Model 1908 (Low Weight variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Perino uses ammo clips but unlike the Benét–Mercié these are stacked in a hopper. In real life the combination of being able to top-up the ammo and having water-cooling allowed the gunner to fire continuously for a long time. In BF1 the Perino holds 120 rounds and has very low recoil but it fires at a slow 450-RPM fire-rate. o get 40 kills with the MG15 n.A. (Low Weight variant) The MG15 Low Weight can be bought for 200 warbonds at Support rank 1. It fires at 500 RPM from a 100-round belt and gives a four-hit kill in CQB. o get 10 squad ammo resupplies in one match The ammo pouch (gadget) is available by default and the ammo crate (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. Join a squad with more players (and without vehicle users) then stick with them long enough to resupply their ammunition ten times. (Good job! You're instantly better than half the Support players!) Perino Model 1908 (Defensive variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Defensive version has an optical sight. It's slower to recover from recoil or spread and slower to become more accurate during sustained fire. o get 50 kills with the BAR M1918 (Storm variant) The BAR Storm can be bought for 200 warbonds at Support rank 3. It fires at a fast 600 RPM, gives a four-hit kill out to 12 metres and has a small 20-round box magazine. The Storm model has much lower recoil. o get 20 kills with the Repetierpistole M1912 The M1912 pistol can be bought for 150 warbonds. This sidearm is exclusive to the Support class. It fires at up to 359 RPM, holds eight rounds and gives a four-hit kill. Mosin-Nagant M91 (Infantry variant)* (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Mosin entered Russian service in 1891 and remains in limited use today. It's a bolt-action rifle that fires at up to 56 RPM from an internal magazine holding five rounds. It gives a one-hit kill on shots to the upper torso at ranges between 60 and 100 metres. o get 3 headshot kills with the SMLE Mk.III (Infantry variant) in one match The Infantry "Smelly" can be bought for 200 warbonds. It fires at 52 RPM from a ten-round magazine and, like most of the Scout's rifles, it gives a one-hit kill on a headshot at any range. o get 20 kills with the Mars Automatic The Mars pistol can be bought for 150 warbonds. This sidearm is exclusive to the Scout class. It fires at 199 RPM, holds eleven rounds and gives a three-hit kill out to 22 metres and a four-hit kill to 28 metres. *The M38 Carbine model of the Mosin-Nagant rifle was one of five new variants added as a Battlefield V pre-order bonus (after the BFV reveal in late May 2018) but that later addition would not be required for this trophy. Mosin-Nagant M91 (Marksman variant) (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Marksman variant has a magnifying scope but slower recoil recovery. o get 50 kills with the Gewehr 98 (Marksman variant) The Gewehr 98 Marksman can be bought for 200 warbonds at Scout rank 3. It has a slow 50-RPM fire-rate and a small five-round ammo capacity. It gives a one-hit kill on chest shots from around 80 to 125 metres. o get 15 kills with the Tripwire Bomb HE The high-explosive tripwire (gadget) is available by default. This consists of an explosive (artillery shell) connected to a tripwire which is detonated when an enemy moves through it. Originally it did a maximum of 80 damage - or 72 versus the Flak perk which is equipped by default. This was increased to 85 (or 76 with Flak) in the October 2017 patch - that's still not enough to kill an enemy who's on full health (100) but it is now sufficient to give an "assist counts as kill" if one of your team-mates kills a Flak user soon after they tripped your bomb. The tripmine is best used by planting it in locations where it will be hidden from view and players will run straight through it - try putting it behind corners in buildings and trenches, especially near objectives and spawns. Think about where enemy soldiers will be most likely to go and what direction they will probably come from. The tripmine should also be effective in Team Deathmatch mode where the maps are smaller and players are generally more mobile. One way to farm kills is to plant a mine on a stationary camping enemy and then shoot them once in the body with a sniper rifle. At close range the shot will do around 80 damage and when they move it'll trigger the mine. Since the November 2017 update a Scout player can have two tripwire bombs deployed at the same time and since the December 2017 patch they now have two tripmines available when they spawn (without having to resupply). Briefly the most viable tactic was to plant two tripmines right next to each other (to give 170 damage) but that is no longer possible since the January 2018 update. The game now enforces a minimum distance (roughly one metre) between your tripmines. On a more positive note the HE tripmine now does double damage when triggered by a sprinting enemy so that gives some potential for getting instant kills even on targets with full health. Vetterli-Vitali M1870/87 (Infantry variant) (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This fires at a slow 46 RPM from a small four-round internal magazine which can be reloaded with individual cartridges or a stripper clip when empty. It also has an unusually slow bullet velocity. It gives a one-hit kill on chest shots at very short ranges - 20 to 50 metres - so you can use it more aggressively but you need to land your first shot. o get 15 kills with the M1903 (Experimental variant) The M1903 Experimental can be bought for 200 warbonds at Scout rank 1. This semi-auto variant of the Springfield fires at 360 RPM and has a large detachable 40-round mag but it does less damage than the other versions - it gives a three-hit kill out to 12 metres. o get 20 periscope spot assists The trench periscope (gadget) can be unlocked for 60 warbonds. It's a combination of binoculars and a periscope which can be used to spot enemies at long range (and potentially while you're behind cover). It also has a basic range-finder that shows the distance to your point of aim. After equipping and selecting the periscope you can hold the left trigger to enter the zoomed view. When you see an enemy just keep them in the centre of your scope and they'll automatically be spotted with a red outline similar to the effect on the kill-cam. However the spot will be lost if they move behind cover and break your line of sight. If a spotted enemy gets killed then you earn one Periscope Spot Bonus. This works best on large open maps where you can spot enemies at long range but try to focus on spotting players that your team-mates can reach. Vetterli-Vitali M1870/87 (Carbine variant) (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Carbine version has better accuracy in hipfire and/or when moving but it takes longer to recover from recoil. o get 50 kills with the SMLE Mk.III (Carbine variant) The Carbine "Smelly" can be bought for 200 warbonds at Scout rank 3. It fires at 52 RPM from a ten-round magazine and gives a one-hit kill on shots to the upper torso from 40 to 75 metres (or headshots at any range). o destroy 1 vehicle with a K Bullet The K Bullets* (gadget) are available by default. These equip as a gadget but they're specialist anti-vehicle rounds which are loaded individually into your sniper rifle after you select them. To complete this requirement you'll need to look out for an enemy vehicle that's taken substantial damage and then finish it off with the K bullets. *The steel-cored armour-piercing K bullets were designed by the Germans to penetrate sniper shields but they were also used to counter British tanks. C93 Carbine (Tanker/Pilot class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This carbine variant of the C93 pistol has a suppressor and a buttstock. It fires at 299 RPM from a 20-round magazine and gives a four-hit kill. o get 40 kills with the FT17 Light Tank The French FT tank can be selected from most tank spawns (when available) from the respawn screen. In real life this compact vehicle had a two-man crew but in the game it's operated by a single player. Three different loadouts are available. Close Support Package allows you to switch between the 37mm HE cannon and a coaxial light machinegun plus you get an emergency track repair to counter an immobilizing hit. The Flanker Package gives you a 20mm auto cannon, track repair and the ability to drop anti-tank mines behind you. The Howitzer Package has a 75mm HE artillery howitzer, emergency repair function and a deployable smokescreen. Nagant Revolver (any infantry class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ It holds seven rounds in its cylinder. You can reload these individually very slowly or fire all seven shots and swap out the entire cylinder. It fires at 199 RPM and does sufficient damage for a three-hit kill. o get 20 kills with the P08 The Luger P08 pistol is available by default. (If you have the "Red Baron's P08" that probably doesn't count so just use the standard version.) It fires at 299 RPM, holds nine rounds and gives a four-hit kill. If you want to complete this unlock more quickly you can equip the pistol on any class then use it constantly as your primary, preferably while playing on smaller maps, in buildings/trenches and flanking enemies. If you're happy to take a more leisurely approach then set the Luger as your sidearm on all your favourite loadouts and just play normally, getting the occasional pistol kill when you need to switch to your secondary. Obrez Pistol (any infantry class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Obrez (literally "sawn-off") is a Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle (see above) cut down to shorten the barrel and remove the buttstock. Ian McCollum (a.k.a. Gun Jesus) discusses the real Obrez in this article: https://www.forgottenweapons.com/the-obrez-and-its-cousins/ It has the Mosin's five-round integral magazine which can be reloaded with individual cartridges or with a stripper clip if empty. With its bolt action and large calibre it fires at a slow 38 RPM and has heavy recoil but it gives a one-hit kill on chest shots out to 10 metres. On older PS4 controllers you may need to squeeze the trigger a bit harder or you can reduce the R2 max input threshold in the advanced controls settings. o get 5 kills with the Mle 1903 in one match The Mle 1903 pistol can be bought for 150 warbonds. It has a fire-rate of 359 RPM and an ammo capacity of 7+1. It gives a four- hit kill out to 16 metres. Since you need to get all five kills in one round you'll need to be more focussed on getting those pistol kills. Try to limit yourself to mainly short-range encounters and flank camping enemies. .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 07c | Turning Tides [TUTI] s07c | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The third multiplayer expansion released in two parts across late 2017 and early 2018 with both halves featuring two maps each. The general theme for the DLC is naval warfare with three coastal maps and lots of naval vessels including a new destroyer-class ship. Teaser Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mvt059cug-A Gallipoli ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The first part of the Turning Tides DLC was released on 11 December 2017 for Premium subscribers and two weeks later for non-subscribers. It features one coastal and one inland map both set at the Gallipoli peninsula. Release Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2CyDZWOf8A __ 'Turning Tides' (part 1) adds the following features to the multiplayer game: o two new maps [see trophy #44] o Conquest Assault game mode variant (replaces Conquest on Cape Helles map) o one new Operation [see trophy #44] o six new guns: Farquhar-Hill (self-loading rifle for Medic) Type 38 Arisaka (bolt-action rifle for Scout) Carcano M91 (bolt-action rifle for Scout) M1917 MG (machinegun for Support) Maschinenpistole M1912/P.16 (machine-pistol for Assault) M1917 Trench Carbine (semi-auto carbine for Assault) o two new melee weapons: Ottoman Flanged Mace (unlocked by default) Naval Cutlass (unlocked via assignment) o nine new assignments to unlock the new weapons [see trophy #46] o new vehicle: L-Class Destroyer [see trophy #45] o new Elite pickup class: Infiltrator* o three new medals o thirteen new codex entries (for the new guns, vehicles, maps, etc) o five new trophies/achievements Additionally the game update raised the level-cap from 120 to 130 and added the Grappling Hook and Russian Axe melee weapons to unlock via puzzle pieces. *The Infiltrator has a Martini-Henry grenade-launcher primary and a sawn-off double-barrel shotgun as a secondary. His gadgets are a deployable heliograph (which functions as a spawn-point for teammates) and a signalling flare-gun (which calls in an artillery strike). He also has enhanced movement speed and when he spots enemy soldiers they stay marked for longer. North Sea ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The second part of the Turning Tides DLC was released on 30 January 2018 for Premium subscribers and two weeks later for non-subscribers. It features two maps located on the North Sea - one at Heligoland Bight off the coast of Germany and one recreating the infamous Zeebrugge Raid* in Belgium. Release Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ADllhZxHYM *Flakfire highlighted several authentic details of the Zeebrugge map here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hyN0cRLGnkc __ 'Turning Tides' (part 2) adds the following features to the multiplayer game: o two new maps* o British Royal Marines faction o Conquest Assault game mode variant (replaces Conquest on both maps) o new vehicles: L-Class Destroyer [see trophy #45] British Coastal-Class Airship o new stationary weapon: SK L/45 Coastal Cannon o three new medals (six total) o four new codex entries (seventeen total) *There is no new Operation for North Sea because the actions at Zeebrugge and Heligoland were 280 miles (and 44 months) apart. 42 Rough Seas [Bronze/25G] "Perform a roadkill in a Sea Vehicle" This is simple enough if you're willing to work with a friend, but otherwise it might require some luck and persistence. You need to drive a boat over an enemy player. They can be in water but it also works if they're on the shore and you drive your boat up onto the land. I'd recommend using a torpedo boat (since they're faster) and then cruising around the map looking for viable targets. Watch out for enemies running or swimming between objectives, capturing a flag from the water or swimming to shore after bailing from a damaged vehicle - I got one about a second after he hit the water when parachuting from a plane. :) Remember to keep spamming the spotting button to highlight enemies you might overlook otherwise. The Heligoland Bight map in the Turning Tides pack is one of the best to use for this - there's a water crossing between "B" and "C" flags in Conquest, infantry routes along the coast between "D", "E" and "F" and plenty of boats available. The water crossing between "A" and "B" on Zeebrugge is quieter but you can also catch swimmers around the "C" and "D" points. There is no requirement to get this on a Turning Tides map so you can also consider other viable locations. Fao Fortress has waterways between "A", "B" and "C" flags which are crossed by infantry. There are also several water crossings between flags on the Albion map (in the Russian DLC). The Turning Tides patch in December 2017 added a repair function for the driver (captain?) of the torpedo boat and landing craft so you can use that to keep your vessel seaworthy for longer while hunting for a victim. 43 Serve With Honor [Bronze/25G] "Complete 1 Service Assignment" The service assignments were added in the Russian DLC patch as a way to give more longevity to the game since each one has several requirements. For the 'Staying Focused' tier each one has six requirements and you need to achieve five for completion which unlocks a specialization - an equippable perk. You can view the service assignments and check your progress from the main menu under Soldier \ Service Assignments. Alternatively you can navigate to the Specializations section of your loadout customization during a match. You'll want to pick one that suits your play-style and preferred class/es, for example the Scout assignments require headshots, flare spots, etc. Unfortunately the trophy is not awarded retrospectively if you've already completed any service assignments so you'll need to finish one after the Turning Tides update (December 2017) was downloaded. If you happened to have completed all available service assignments then you can do one of the new ones added in the Turning Tides patch. New assignments were added for all classes including Tanker and Pilot; the simplest one is probably the Medic assignment 'Pharmacist' but it's still a bit of a grind. 44 Become Operational [Bronze/50G] "Complete the Gallipoli Operation" The first half of the Turning Tides expansion (released December 2017) adds the Cape Helles and Achi Baba maps which are set at the Gallipoli peninsula and form the two stages of the new 'Gallipoli' Operation. You can select this from the Multiplayer \ Operations menu but you'll need to scroll right until you can see Gallipoli (east of Italy and Greece). The Operation begins with the attacking British forces assaulting from the S.S. River Clyde on the coastal Cape Helles map. If they successfully seize all four sectors there then the Operation continues with infantry-only combat on the inland Achi Baba map which has a further four sectors. The Operation will be completed either when the attacking side has captured all sectors on both maps or when the defenders have managed to stop all three attack waves before the Brits reach the end of the second map. 45 The Power in These Waters* [Bronze/50G] "Kill 15 enemies with the L-Class Destroyer" The L-Class Destroyer** is a new vehicle that's only available in the Turning Tides expansion. It's a large ship - but not as big as the dreadnought from the base game and it's not classed as a Behemoth in game terms. The destroyer is playable on all three naval maps in Conquest Assault mode. On Cape Helles the attacking British forces get one, on Zeebrugge both sides get one and on Heligoland Bight both sides get two. The Brits also get one destroyer in the 'Gallipoli' Operation but only in the second sector of the first map I think. The ship is accessed in the same way as the planes. When a destroyer is available from the respawn screen there will be a "1" by the ship icon next to the deployment marker (faction flag). Shortly after the driver has spawned into the ship it will appear on the spawn map and further players can join. After the destroyer has been, er, destroyed it goes into cooldown and will become available again after around 90 seconds (default server settings). The player who initially requests the ship from the menu always spawns as the Tanker class and only this player can repair the destroyer. If they switch seats or abandon ship then the new driver cannot repair. :6 The driver always has two standard weapons and can toggle between these with Triangle/Y. The dreadnought barrage can only be used with internal view (use the right stick button to toggle). Select the "whistle" icon, optionally hold d-pad up to aim in binoculars view and press L1/LB to fire - this calls in an artillery strike of six heavy shells on the target area. The other weapon is a 4-inch gun which has a maximum of ten rounds which replenish over time - again you can hold d-pad up for a zoomed aim and press L1/LB to fire. The second seat has another 4-inch gun and the third has an anti-aircraft gun both with 360° rotation and you can use L2/LT to aim and R2/RT to fire. Both seats can also toggle to dual torpedo tubes with 60° arcs on both sides. There are two loadout options for the L-Class Destroyer. With 'Torpedo Boat Destroyer' a fourth seat is added with another 4-inch gun (no torpedoes) and with 'Minelayer' the driver gains naval mines in addition to the barrage and gun but there is no fourth seat. A load of twelve sea mines can be dropped from the rear of the vessel by pressing d-pad left - you'll want to do this while moving so that they cover a line across a popular route. The mines can be seen bobbing in the water so they work best as a deterrent and generally you're better off going with the extra seat anyway. The 4-inch guns give one-hit kills on infantry so watch out carefully for enemy infantry. You can zoom and spam the spotting button (R1/RB) to mark targets (which will also help your infantry team-mates). You'll need to allow for substantial drop at long ranges so aim high and stay zoomed to see where your shots are landing so you can adjust for your follow-up. The enemy torpedo boats in Conquest Assault mode pose a major threat to your destroyer so all crew members should watch for them and engage them as soon as possible; this will usually require allowing for drop at longer ranges again and also leading the target when the boat is moving. You can benefit from friendly boats and planes hunting enemy boats too. You might like to select the Scout class before spawning into the second, third or fourth seat of the destroyer. You can often pick up multi-kills by taking out an enemy boat and you need to get three multi-kills as Scout to unlock the Arisaka rifle (see trophy #46). *In the 2003 movie 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' Murtogg describes the Dauntless as "the power in these waters, true enough." **The Laforey class consisted of twenty-two ships built between 1912-14 for the British Royal Navy. They were primarily torpedo-boat destroyers and each vessel had a name beginning with L. HMS Lance was the very first British unit to fire a shot during World War I and three L-Class destroyers - HMS Louis, HMS Laforey and HMS Lassoo - were lost during the conflict. The class was named after Francis Laforey who captained the HMS Spartiate at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. 46 Naval Weapons Collection [Gold/100G] "Perform a kill with all 'Turning Tides' weapon variants" The expansion adds six new unlockable guns with eight variants in total (two each for the standard infantry classes) and - as with "Filled the Stockpile" (trophy #41) in the Russian DLC - you need to get one kill with all versions. Each gun (and variant) is unlocked by an assignment again and I've given details of the requirements for these below. You can also pick up a weapon from a dead player if you find one or have a boosting partner. The Turning Tides DLC also added the unlockable Naval Cutlass (sword) and you need to get one kill with that for this trophy too. Maschinenpistole M1912/P.16 Storm* (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This machine-pistol variant of the Support class's M1912 sidearm sprays on full auto at a ferocious 1200 RPM. It comes with an extended magazine that holds sixteen rounds but it chews through that in 4/5ths of a second. It reloads from a combination of 8-round clips and individual cartridges so if you reload with one or nine rounds remaining it'll take a while. It has severe recoil but it's fairly controllable if you use short bursts. To unlock this gun you need to complete the following two assignment tasks: o get 50 kills with the Automatico M1918 (Storm variant) The Automatico Storm can be bought for 200 warbonds at Assault rank 3. With its infamous close-quarters potential, the Automatico fires from a 25-round magazine at 900 RPM and gives a five-hit kill out to 12 metres. o destroy 5 boats with the AT Rocket Gun The anti-tank rocket gun (gadget) is available by default. You can do this as the Assault class on any map with boats but the best opportunities would be on the naval maps in the Turning Tides pack since they have so many boats available. I got all five boats for the trophy in a single Conquest match. You will need to allow for drop at longer ranges and if the boat is moving you'll need to aim ahead of it. A boat which was abandoned after enemy use will still count towards this and often makes an easier target. It's also worth noting that a landing craft acts as a spawn point so it's a really good idea to destroy them - although it can also be fun to farm kills off enemies spawning there. :) It usually takes three hits to destroy a boat but if other players are firing at it you can try to time your shot to steal their kill and maybe conserve your ammo. However it will still help if you can camp on an ammo box or find a helpful Support player to keep you resupplied. *An Experimental variant was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018 but this later addition wouldn't be required for this trophy. M1917 Trench Carbine* (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Mauser M1917 semi-automatic carbine is essentially a C96 pistol modified with a longer barrel, buttstock and 40-round magazine. It fires at 359 RPM (faster than the 300 RPM of the C96 sidearm) and gives a standard three-hit kill out to 12 metres. It has low vertical and horizontal recoil with good initial accuracy so it'll be relatively handy at mid-range. o get 15 kills with sidearms You have a free choice of all the sidearms in any class for this so you can pick whatever you're most comfortable with. You might prefer one with more damage per bullet but slower fire or one with a larger magazine. I tend to favour the M1911 and Mle 1903 which give a balance that suits me. (Are pistol-only servers still a thing in BF1? In theory you could set the Name option in the server browser to "pistol" and find custom servers where everyone is using sidearms so you have a level playing-field.) o get 5 multi-kills You get a multi-kill bonus whenever you kill two or more enemies in a very short span of time (e.g. I know in Battlefield 3 it was 0.8 seconds). You can do this with any class but remember that you need to get three multi-kills with the Scout class to unlock the Arisaka rifle (see below). I frequently play in an anti-vehicle role so I often pick up multi-kills off vehicle destroys, especially when grouped mines take out the vehicle before the crew has a chance to bail. ;) You might find that you get some multi-kills while taking out boats to unlock the Maschinenpistole. You can also get multi-kills from grenades and mortar strikes on clusters of enemies or from heavy weapons like tank guns and field guns. You can even get them from spraying down multiple targets for successive rapid kills with a high fire-rate automatic weapon like the Automatico SMG. The destroyer ship (see trophy #45) has two or three heavy guns and for multi-kills it's best to target any incoming enemy torpedo boats. *A Patrol Carbine model was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018 but this later addition wouldn't be required for this trophy. Farquhar-Hill (Storm variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The new primary for the medics has a fairly slow rate of fire but it boasts a generous 20-round drum magazine and a higher damage profile which gives a standard three-hit kill out to 54 metres. o get 25 kills with the M1907 SL (Trench variant) The SL Trench can be bought for 200 warbonds at Medic rank 2. It fires in semi-automatic at up to 299 RPM and gives a three-hit kill out to 38 metres but it lacks the full-auto option of the Sweeper variant. o get 10 revives in one match The syringe (gadget) is available by default. This is very simple to do if you're playing the Medic class effectively on an infantry-focused mode. Just stay near groups of friendly troops during firefights and hang back slightly to avoid getting killed yourself. Farquhar-Hill (Optical variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This model adds optical sights and has superior aimed accuracy but that comes with more severe recoil. o get 25 headshot kills with the Farquhar-Hill (Storm variant) This rifle does a max damage of 42 which is insufficient to give a one-hit kill even with the standard x1.7 headshot damage multiplier. At ranges out to around 50 metres it does enough damage to give a kill from a body-shot and a headshot. Past that range you'd need to get either two body-shots and a headshot or two headshots. o complete 20 Squad Orders See "Play the Objective" (trophy #04) for info and tips on squad orders. M1917 MG (Low Weight variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Browning M1917 shoots a little slower than most of the MGs but it's fed from a massive 250-round belt so, if you want, you can fire it continuously for over half a minute! DICE are happy to include it in the LMG (light machinegun) category but in real life with a tripod, ammo and cooling water it weighed 103lb! (47kg) o get 25 kills with the BAR M1918 (Trench variant) The BAR Trench can be bought for 200 warbonds at Support rank 2. It fires at 600 RPM from a 20-round magazine and gives a standard four-hit kill out to 12 metres. The Trench model gives better accuracy in hipfire. o get 250 vehicle damage with explosives You could do this with the Support class's limpet charges or HE crossbow but you're also free to use Assault's various anti-vehicle tools. I found that firing AT rockets at horses also counts. :) M1917 MG (Telescopic variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Aside from the sight options, the Telescopic version has better aimed spread but it takes longer for the accuracy to reset after firing. o get 50 kills with the M1917 MG (Low Weight variant) Having unlocked the first variant of the M1917 you now need to rack up a total of fifty kills with it to unlock the second one. o score 1,500 suppression points using any machinegun The suppression effect is applied to an enemy when you fire shots around them without actually hitting them. This aims to recreate the effect of using suppressive fire to force an enemy into cover or to retreat. It's possible to work towards this with the BAR or Chauchat but you'll make slow progress since their magazines are so small. It's better to use the MG15, Parabellum, Perino, Lewis Suppressive or the M1917 again. If you've completed the 'It's in the Game' service assignment you can equip the Pin Down perk to buff your suppression effect. Type 38 Arisaka (Infantry variant)* (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Arisaka was in service with the Imperial Japanese Army from 1905 to 1945 but large volumes were also acquired by Britain and Russia during WWI. In BF1 it's modelled with an authentic 5-round magazine, fires at 57 RPM and does 100 damage to the chest at ranges between 30 and 62 metres. o get 25 counter-sniping kills You get the 25-pts Counter Sniping bonus whenever you kill an enemy Scout player while playing as the Scout class yourself. I'd recommend using the Gewehr M.95 Carbine because you need 25 kills with that for the Carcano's unlock assignment (see below). It also fires pretty quickly and its minimum damage is 79 so you're more likely to pick up a few assists that are counted towards your kill count. o get three multi-kills playing as Scout class I think the most effective option here is to use a vehicle fitted with a heavy weapon but remember that spawning into a new tank or plane from the menu gives you the Tanker or Pilot class respectively. Also if you request a new L-Class Destroyer from the menu you get the Tanker class again. Good choices would be the side-guns on the British landship, the second or fourth seats in the destroyer (see trophy #45) or the driver's seat of the dreadnought or armoured train Behemoths. You can gain multi-kills off tight groups of enemies or by landing the kill-shot on an enemy vehicle. Without vehicles, the Scout class has limited potential for multi-kills. However you will sometimes get multiple kills when using anti-personnel grenades in confined spaces and you might be able to finish off an enemy vehicle with K bullets or a light anti-tank grenade. *A Patrol variant was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018 but this later addition wouldn't be required for this trophy. Carcano M91 (Carbine variant)* (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Modello 91 was in production from 1892 to 1945 and was used extensively by Italian forces during World War I. The shorter carbine model had a 17.7" barrel compared to the 30.7" barrel of the rifle version. Like the M.95, the Carcano doesn't have a "sweet spot" so it's unable to give a one-hit kill on a chest-shot to an uninjured enemy. It does less damage at all ranges too however it still does enough for a two-hit body-shot kill. It fires appreciably faster (73 RPM or 0.82 seconds per shot) and it holds six rounds compared to the M.95's five. o get 25 kills with the Gewehr M.95 (Carbine variant) The M.95 Carbine can be bought for 200 warbonds at Scout rank 1. It lacks the "sweet spot" damage profile to give a one-hit kill from a shot to the chest but it can still kill with one headshot or two body-shots at any distance. It does good damage at all ranges so you can usually kill an injured enemy with one shot or conversely if you land a shot and one of your team-mates steals the kill you should get an "assist counts as kill". It has a relatively high rate of fire for a sniper rifle and the Carbine version has superior hipfire accuracy so it's handy in close quarters. o destroy 5 explosives The easiest way to get this is to take out enemy anti-tank mines either with a grenade or by shooting them - from a safe distance! These will (and should) often be deployed in sets of three so you only need to find two lots to get the five required for this assignment. You'll often see AT mines at busy bottle-neck routes on Conquest maps with vehicles. Check the streets of Amiens and the main road on Monte Grappa. Tripwire bombs should also count towards this and will sometimes appear on your minimap if they've been spotted. *A Patrol Carbine model was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018 but this later addition wouldn't be required for this trophy. Naval Cutlass (any infantry class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ One kill with this unlockable melee weapon is also required for the trophy. o capture 20 flags while in a boat This task became somewhat easier with the release of the second half of the Turning Tides content. The Heligoland Bight map has six flags in Conquest Assault mode and all of these can be captured by boats, although this will often leave you exposed to snipers, enemy boats, planes, airships, etc! Also on the Zeebrugge map you can capture "C" flag (Munitions Dock) next to the U-boat and "D" (Submarine Pen) inside bay number 2 in the middle. There are only a handful of other flags that can be capped by boat. On Fao Fortress it's possible at "A" (Turtle Hill), "B" (Sunwada Redoubt), "C" (Marsh Village) and "G" (Shatt Al Arab Post). On Empire's Edge you can take "E" (Island Battery) and it's often easier to get caps there without getting seen or killed since you can either hide behind the island or drive in circles around it. If you can find an active Conquest match on Albion (in the Russian DLC) then you can also capture "C" (Keese Island) by boat. o get 15 kills on swimming enemies I think an enemy is classed as swimming when they're in water and it's so deep that they cannot stand or equip their primary weapon. You can get your swimmer kills using your own primary or secondary weapon, gadgets or vehicle weapons and you can also get roadkills with boats of course - see "Rough Seas" (trophy #42). If you happen to be in the water yourself you cannot use your primary but you can still fire your pistol. The Heligoland Bight map has a wide stretch of water between the "B" flag (Mainz*) and "C" (Bunker Beach) and you will sometimes see swimmers around the coastal objectives or bailing from damaged boats. You may encounter some swimmers on the Zeebrugge map, especially around "C" (Munitions Dock) and "D" (Submarine Pen) which can both be capped from the water. The Albion map in the Russian DLC is a good choice again - it has lots of infantry action and deep swimmable water between the islands. Henryk Kolodziej recommended a good spot on Albion at the bridge between the contested "B" and "D" flags near the centre of the map. Parts of the bridge will likely be destroyed by passing boats so find the best place to hide according to the cover available and which flags the enemies hold. If you're in deep water remember you'll be limited to using your sidearm so make sure you equip one that works well for you. See Henryk's own video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GkGpKT6W3b0 Fao Fortress in the base game has extensive waterways but the main infantry routes between "A", "B" and "C" flags are too shallow to allow swimming. *The S.M.S. Mainz was a German cruiser which was disabled and sunk by the attacking British naval forces at the Battle of Heligoland Bight in 1914. .-------------.----------------------------------------------------------------. | Section 07d | Apocalypse [APOC] s07d | '-------------'----------------------------------------------------------------' The fourth and final multiplayer expansion was released on 20 February 2018 for Premium subscribers and two weeks later on 6 March for non-subscribers. The loose theme is "infamous battles, brutal tools and unique weapons". Release Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=soGeowHi4kA __ 'Apocalypse' adds the following features to the multiplayer game: o three new infantry maps* o Conquest Assault game mode variant (replaces Conquest on two maps) o two new aerial maps (copied from the campaign) o Air Assault game mode o six new guns: Howell Automatic (self-loading rifle for Medic) Ross Mk.III (bolt-action rifle for Scout) M1917 Enfield (bolt-action rifle for Scout) lMG08/18 (light machinegun for Support) RSC SMG (submachinegun for Assault) Revolver Mk.VI (sidearm) o two new melee weapons: Meat Cleaver (unlocked by default) Broken Bottle [see trophy #49] o ten new assignments to unlock the new weapons [see trophy #51] o new vehicles: Hansa Brandenburg G.I (bomber) Airco DH.10 (bomber) o new grenade: Improvised Grenade (unlocked by default) o new gadget: Anti-Aircraft Rocket Gun (unlocked by default) o new stationary weapon: Livens Projector (gas launcher) [see trophy #48] o six new medals o sixteen new codex entries (for the new guns, vehicles, maps, etc) o five new trophies/achievements Additionally the game update introduced "afflictions" (anti-perks unlocked via service assignments), raised the level-cap from 130 to 140 and added the Prybar axe as a new melee weapon to unlock via puzzle pieces from battlepacks. (Eleven weeks later the free "Weapons Crate" update on 7 May 2018 increased the level-cap from 140 to 150 and added the Annihilator (Trench variant) Thompson submachinegun and eight new variants of Assault and Scout primary weapons which previously only had one version. It also added the Sickle and the Welsh Blade.) *There is no new Operation for Apocalypse because there is no narrative link between the countries, years and factions of the three battles featured. 47 Firefighter [Bronze/25G] "Perform a melee kill on a Flametrooper Elite" The Elites are the hero classes available as pickups from crates and the Flametrooper is obviously the one with the flamethrower. This is available on several maps but on the Apocalypse maps in Conquest mode you can find it near "B" flag on Caporetto, "E" flag on River Somme and "B" flag on Passchendaele so you might like to lurk around there until an enemy takes the pickup - or more likely a squad-mate spawns on you and takes it! You can usually tell when a Flametrooper is nearby because you can hear the roar of their weapon. Try to determine their position and flank around behind them to get a clean one-hit melee takedown kill. If you have a bayonet fitted on your primary you can also use the bayonet charge (melee while running) to dispatch them swiftly. (It's still possible to get the trophy if, like me, you lack that finesse. I just employed YOLO strats - I ran straight towards the first flamethrower I saw and spammed my melee button for front attacks. Of course he set me on fire but I was able to land the killing blow just before I burnt to death.) 48 Advanced Studies [Bronze/25G] "Perform 1 kill with the Livens Projector" The Livens Projector* (or the Gaswurfminen* which was the German name for their version of the same thing) is a new stationary weapon that's available on all three infantry maps in the Apocalypse expansion. It consists of twenty tubes set into the ground and connected to a detonator unit on a small wooden crate. When the weapon is activated it automatically fires poison gas projectiles at the nearest flag (in Conquest mode) - these cover a large area for approximately twenty seconds. After firing the weapon it goes into cooldown for 120 seconds and when it's available again a red indicator light turns on. On the River Somme map the light is mounted on a trench wall so you can't see it from a distance, but on the other two maps it's always on a lamppost - just like the spotting rockets available on the Nivelle Nights map. On River Somme in Conquest Assault mode the Livens Projector is in the centre of the main trench in the British deployment area between the two mounted machineguns. The launcher tubes are aimed at Wellington Farm ("A" flag). On Passchendaele in Conquest mode the Gaswurfminen is at the east end of the main dogleg trench in the German spawn. It's situated in front of a concrete bunker next to some camo netting and it fires onto Adler Ridge ("E" flag). On Caporetto in Conquest Assault mode a total of five launchers are available to use. The first Gaswurfminen is located in the Austro-Hungarian team's deployment area (right at the back near the vehicles) and is aimed towards the "A" flag. When "A" is captured by the attackers another one spawns there and this is aimed at "B" flag. Similarly the one at "B" aims at "C", "C" aims at "D" and "D" aims at "E". Check out Flakfire's video guide to the Livens Projector locations here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6l6hVSG2cYU To get a kill you'll need a willing victim in the target area so the weapon is best used when you know that enemy players are actively defending the flag or the in-game display indicates they are currently capturing it. Obviously Caporetto gives the best potential for this since there are five launchers - you can watch the map on the respawn screen and then spawn directly to the launcher, for example if your team holds "B" and currently "C" is contested then you could spawn at "B" flag and use the launcher there (if available). *The Livens Projector was invented by Captain William Livens of the British army. It was copied by the Germans for their Gaswurfminen which was notably deployed at the Battle of Caporetto in 1917. The British and German weapons are named authentically in the game but you can use either for the trophy. 49 Modern Technology [Bronze/50G] "Perform 1 kill with the Broken Bottle" The Broken Bottle is a new loadout melee weapon which can be unlocked by getting five kills with the Wine Bottle found as a pickup on the new maps. When you stand next to a Wine Bottle you'll see the prompt to pick it up which equips the bottle as a weapon. Getting a kill or switching to another weapon or gadget will cause the bottle to disappear. It functions as a club- type weapon but it gives a one-hit kill against a standard infantry target; you don't need to attack from behind - it works from the front too. The Wine Bottle can be found at the following locations on the Apocalypse infantry maps. They will be available from the start of a match but after one has been collected it will not respawn in the same match. Passchendaele ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 1. In the second concrete bunker west of "E" flag 2. On the table in a wooden shelter by wagons and crates east of "E" flag 3. Under a wooden shelter south-west of "C" flag 4. On a wooden platform in the trench west of the bunker at "B" flag 5. In a long trench running north-east from the church ruins at "A" flag Caporetto ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 1. At the rear of the wagon on the train near the big broken bridge 2. At the corner near the flagpole at "D" flag 3. At the south end of the small bridge at "C" flag 4. Next to the bench south of "B" flag (past the main building ruins) 5. By one of the paired statues north-east of "B" flag 6. In the wide trench east of "A" flag between two covered trench sections River Somme ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 1. In the south-west corner of the building north of "A" flag 2. At the back of the bottom floor of the windmill at "B" flag 3. In the north-east corner of the house at "C" flag 4. Next to a large machine by the tall factory chimney at "E" flag 5. Next to sacks south-west of "F" flag and west of the burning train wagon It's tricky to describe or learn the locations (especially on Passchendaele's wasteland) so you might want to check out a Youtube video as a guide - but avoid earlier ones which feature the bottle locations from the CTE (Community Test Environment) which were changed. You can also search or practice on an empty server but you won't have the Conquest flag labels for reference. Once you've got five Wine Bottle kills the Broken Bottle will be unlocked and can be selected in your loadouts. This functions as a knife-type weapon with fast light attacks but it also gives the usual melee takedown from behind. For extra style points, get your first Broken Bottle kill on a Flametrooper and pick up this trophy and "Firefighter" (trophy #47) at the same time! 50 Flyswatter [Bronze/50G] "Destroy 5 airplanes while in the Behemoth Airship L30" The L30 is the larger airship with six seats which spawns as a Behemoth on several maps in Conquest and Operations. Make sure you use that and not the smaller four-seater C-Class airship added in the Turning Tides expansion. While it should be possible to achieve this trophy in Conquest/Operations it is far more convenient to use the new Air Assault mode. On London Calling: Scourge one team has to defend their airship and on London Calling: Raiders both teams get one. Since infantry spawns are impossible in this mode, there will be plenty more potential targets in Air Assault too. Spawn into your team's airship if possible and look out for enemy planes (on your minimap too). The best targets are planes flying directly toward your airship on an attack run - you don't need to lead your target and they get bigger as they get closer. :) You may get a few kills without even trying. I got the trophy when an enemy pilot crashed into our airship and I was credited with the kill somehow. 51 Weapons of the Apocalypse [Gold/100G] "Perform a kill with all 'Apocalypse' weapon variants" As usual the final trophy in the expansion requires you to get one kill each with all of the new unlockable weapons. Each weapon is unlocked by an assignment again and I've given details of the requirements for these below. You can also pick up a weapon from a dead player if you find one or have a boosting partner. The good news here is that the assignments are much easier this time. RSC SMG (Factory variant) (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ This unusual submachinegun was intended for short-range protection of French tank crews, making it an early example of a Personal Defence Weapon (PDW). Designed and manufactured by Ribeyrolles, Sutter and Chauchat (RSC), it is also known as the Chauchat-Ribeyrolles submachinegun. However it resembles neither the Chauchat LMG nor the Ribeyrolles SMG from the French DLC and was in fact derived from the RSC 1917 semi-automatic rifle which was also added in the same expansion - see "Maître d'Armes" (trophy #36). With its heavier ammo - it uses the same 8mm Lebel load as the RSC 1917, Chauchat and Benét–Mercié - the RSC SMG can kill in three hits in CQB and its three-hit kill range was extended from 12 metres to 20 metres in the June 2018 update. However it fires slowly at 449 RPM (half the fire-rate of the Automatico) and its magazine only holds eight rounds for a total capacity of nine with a full magazine and one in the chamber. If you shoot until it's completely empty it's really worth reloading twice to get that one extra. To unlock this gun you need to complete the following assignment task: o get 50 kills with the Assault class You're free to get those kills by any means while playing as the Assault class - primary/secondary/melee/gadget/grenade/vehicle/stationary. As usual it's important to remember that spawning as the driver of a new tank, plane or destroyer ship gives you the Tanker or Pilot class instead of your currently selected infantry class. RSC SMG (Optical variant) (Assault class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Optical model has a basic optical sight and slightly higher magnification options. Statistically it has improved aimed accuracy but a higher first-shot recoil multiplier and slower recoil and spread recovery after shooting. o get 50 kills with the RSC SMG (Factory variant) The Chauchat-Ribeyrolles submachinegun does higher damage at all ranges than the other SMGs but with that small mag size you need to make every shot count so it's effective in close-range 1-on-1 encounters. o get 300 vehicle damage with explosives in one match If you're playing as Assault for the SMG kills then you should be able to use any combination of anti-tank rocket gun, anti-tank mines, anti-tank grenades, dynamite and the new anti-air rocket gun. You can also enhance your anti-vehicle capability by equipping the light anti-tank grenade. Howell Automatic (Factory variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Howell Automatic Rifle was a modified Enfield SMLE bolt-action rifle which was capable of semi-automatic fire by means of a gas piston along its right side which operated the bolt handle. Further modifications included a 20-round detachable magazine, foldaway front and rear sights, a crude metal tube as a pistol grip and a metal shroud to protect the shooter's hand from the moving bolt handle. It has very similar stats to the Farquhar-Hill from the Turning Tides DLC, with the same 257 RPM fire-rate and the same high damage profile which gives a three-hit kill all the way out to 54 metres. The Howell has slightly higher vertical recoil but reduced horizontal recoil (which is a good trade-off for controllability) and its recoil recovery is better. It also has a bipod for more stable fire (from the ground or a ledge) and the option of anti-air sights which are very handy as the standard offset sights are pretty weird. o get 50 kills with the Medic class You're free to get those kills by any means while playing as the Medic class - primary/secondary/melee/gadget/grenade/vehicle/stationary. As usual it's important to remember that spawning as the driver of a new tank, plane or destroyer ship gives you the Tanker or Pilot class instead of your currently selected infantry class. I think I got most of my Medic kills spamming my 1911 in frenetic trench combat and popping the Livens Projectors (see trophy #48) whenever viable. Howell Automatic (Sniper variant) (Medic class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The sniper model comes with a scope. It has better stationary aimed accuracy but slower recovery from recoil and spread after firing. o get 50 kills with the Howell Automatic (Factory variant) Generally the self-loading rifles are intended to be most effective at mid range but they're still useable at short and long ranges. o provide 600 points of healing in one match Just stick with a large group of team-mates who are pushing objectives and stay in cover to provide heals (and revives) as required. A smaller map without vehicles will give more focused infantry action. The Ribbon of Recovery medal is awarded each time you give 300 health in one match so you'll get two medals when you complete this requirement. lMG08/18 (Low Weight variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The German MG08 was derived from Maxim's original and iconic 1883 machinegun design. The MG08/18 or lMG08/18* was a later model that utilised air-cooling as an alternative to the cumbersome water-cooling system. In BF1 it combines several decent stats from other MGs - it has the 600-RPM fire-rate of the BAR, the damage profile of the Madsen/Parabellum (giving a four-hit kill out to 12 metres) and the 100-round ammo capacity of the MG15. However it does have quite high vertical and horizontal recoil and some of those authentic reload animations are rather slow. This Low Weight model comes with iron sights which are very usable. *Yes, that's a lower-case L - it stands for "luftgekühlt" (air-cooled) or "leicht" (light). The upper-case L for "Luft" (air) was used for planes. o get 50 kills with the Support class You're free to get those kills by any means while playing as the Support class - primary/secondary/melee/gadget/grenade/vehicle/stationary. As usual it's important to remember that spawning as the driver of a new tank, plane or destroyer ship gives you the Tanker or Pilot class instead of your currently selected infantry class. lMG08/18 (Suppressive variant) (Support class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Suppressive model feeds from a 200-round belt and has a low-mag scope. It has more spread (less accuracy) after the first shot, gains accuracy slower during sustained fire and recovers from spread much slower also. o get 50 kills with the lMG08/18 (Low Weight variant) You'll need to unlock the Low Weight model and get fifty kills with it before you can start working towards this requirement for the Suppressive. o provide 100 ammo resupplies in one match Stick with several friendlies and keep spamming your ammo bags/boxes like it's your job (it is btw). You'll make the best progress with large groups of players during prolonged firefights over bottle-necks on infantry maps. The Ribbon of Resupply medal is awarded each time you get 10 resupplies in one match so you'll get ten medals when you complete this requirement. Ross Mk.III (Marksman variant)* (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Canada lacked the licence to build SMLE rifles so instead adopted this design by Sir Charles Ross (which later also formed the basis of 1916 Huot light machinegun). It was the service rifle of the Canadian Expeditionary Force from 1905 to 1916 - the Mark III was the 1910 model. Both of the Apocalypse snipers combine a high fire-rate with 100 max damage for a potential one-hit kill on a chest shot. The Ross fires at 62 RPM and does 100 damage from 40 to 75 metres (the same short range as the SMLE). Unlike the M1917 Enfield it's fitted with a scope for sniping and it has a straight-pull bolt so you can chamber the next round while aiming. It feeds from an internal magazine which holds five rounds. o get 50 kills with the Scout class You're free to get those kills by any means while playing as the Scout class - primary/secondary/melee/gadget/grenade/vehicle/stationary. As usual it's important to remember that spawning as the driver of a new tank, plane or destroyer ship gives you the Tanker or Pilot class instead of your currently selected infantry class. *An Infantry variant was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018 but this later addition wouldn't be required for this trophy. M1917 Enfield (Infantry variant)* (Scout class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The M1917 was an American rifle chambered for .30-06 calibre that was based on the British P14 Enfield rifle (which used .303 calibre). Roughly three quarters of the American Expeditionary Force in France at the end of World War I were equipped with the M1917 rifle. In BF1 it fires at 60 RPM and does 100 damage from 100 to 150 metres (the same long range as the M1903 Springfield). However - being an Infantry model - it lacks a magnifying scope so it's difficult to acquire targets at that sort of range. The iron sights tend to block your view around your aim too, but at least they don't cause a scope glint to betray your position. The Enfield feeds from an internal magazine which holds six rounds. o get 50 kills with the Ross Mk.III (Marksman variant) In the "sweet spot" range (40 to 75 metres) you can get a one-hit kill off a shot to the upper torso. At other ranges you require a headshot. o get 2,500 metres of headshot kills using single-action rifles Each time you land a headshot kill you get a 25 pts Headshot Bonus and at longer ranges you also get a Marksman Bonus equal to the distance of the shot in metres. To complete this requirement you need to get headshot kills with a combined total distance of 2.5 kilometres (about 1.5 miles), for example you could get 25 headshot kills at 100 metres. You can only use the Scout class primaries for this - any of the bolt- action rifles or the lever-action Russian 1895. *A Silenced variant was added in the free "Weapons Crate" update in May 2018 but this later addition wouldn't be required for this trophy. Revolver Mk.VI (any infantry class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ The Webley Mark IV revolver entered British service in 1899 and was used during the Boer War. The Mark V was introduced in 1913 prior to the outbreak of WWI and the Mark VI followed in mid-1915. It has similar stats to the Medic's Auto Revolver with a two-hit kill out to 10 metres. It fires slower (199 RPM) and has more vertical recoil but it also reloads faster (with a speedloader) and has less horizontal recoil. o kill 25 different enemies with revolvers Even without the Nagant from the Russian DLC, each basic class has access to two revolvers so you're free to play as any class - just remember to equip one of the following as your sidearm on your loadout before you spawn and then use it wherever possible. - No.3 Revolver (any infantry class) - Nagant Revolver (any infantry class) - Gasser M1870 (Assault class) - Auto Revolver (Medic class) - Bull Dog Revolver (Support class) - Bodeo 1889 (Scout class) With the exception of the Nagant, the revolvers all give a two-hit kill at short range but they're generally slower and hold fewer rounds compared to most of the other pistols. If you're playing as Scout remember to use your spotting flare to reveal the position of potential targets in your vicinity. Broken Bottle (any infantry class) ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ I believe that one kill with this melee weapon is also required and if you're going for all the trophies you'll definitely need one kill with it anyway. The broken bottle is a traditional improvised weapon. In BF1 it falls into the knife category as a cutting weapon with fast but light attacks. o get 5 kills with the Wine Bottle The Broken Bottle loadout weapon is unlocked by getting five kills with the Wine Bottle which is available as a pickup weapon on the Apocalypse maps.
