Welcome to the Armored Kill DLC! This expansion features all 4 brand new large-scale maps (one of them is the largest Battlefield map of all time!), and as the name suggests, there's a heavy emphasis on vehicular warfare. In addition, a new game mode can also be played, exclusively on the Armored Kill maps. Tank Superiority. Think of it as a regular deathmatch, but with one capture point in the middle of the map, and a vast majority of players rolling around in tank destroyers. 5 new assignments arrive with this DLC as well, but thankfully, there isn't a specific achievement tied into completing all 5.
Start out playing either Conquest or Rush in any of the Armored Kill maps. If you're playing Conquest, try to focus on controlling the flag with the little gunship symbol next to the marker. As long as your team controls this zone, your team will be able to control the gunship. If you're playing some Rush, just be on the defending side and the gunship is automatically available to you. There are two achievements tied to the gunship, one of them being "Dropship" (destroy the gunship). You have to get the killing blow. I'd recommend laying down some fire with a jet, coming in from behind it, and mixing up use of the chaingun and heatseakers. The other gunship oriented achievement is "Death from above" and that's to simply get a kill with the gunship. It can be a pain to get in, even though its a two people can use it at a given time. Just be patient. I'd recommend you go for 15 kills with the gunship (not in one game, though!) as this will unlock anti-air for the mobile artilieries and make the "Destroyer" achievement SO MUCH EASIER. You need to get 10 kills with the mobile artilleries and 10 kills with the tank destroyers. Play some Tank Superiority, and you'll rack up the necessary kills. Winning a round of Tank Superiority will net you the "Superiority" achievement. The only achievement left is "Offroad," and for this you need to get a kill while on the quadbike. I suggest that you play Conquest on Bandar Desert, and ride around the roadway that connects objectives A and B. Many players seem to traverse this area on foot. Sneak up behind them and ram 'em for a roadkill.
Armored Kill's achievements are a bit harder than the other DLCs. Sometimes, you won't find yourself in a gunship for a while, or someone snags the killing blow on the gunship, setting you back for a while with the "Dropship" achievement. Sometimes, you'll be aimlessly wandering around, isolated on that quadbike for certain periods of time(these maps are monster-like). "Destroyer" can eat away the time with careless planning. But don't let any of this trouble you! Persistence is key to these achievements! And once you've unlocked them all, spend some quality time on the Armored Kill maps! Be sure to blast some of Kavinsky's "Nightcall" as you drive around Death Valley. Nothing but pure exhilaration.
Mad props to WalterWhite for the sig!
