The fourth epic expansion in Battlefield 3, Aftermath introduces 4 new maps, 1 new weapon (the Xbow), 1 new gametype (Scavenger), 3 new vehicles, and 10 new assignments. 5 of these assignments need to be completed for one of the achievements. Details can be seen below.
Boot up a game of Conquest on the map "Epicenter" and move towards the C flag. In a small pipe there's a dinosaur trophy. Crawl into the pipe and shoot it to unlock "Bite your finger." Truck on to the new game mode, "Scavenger." Here, you'll need to pick up 50 weapons that are scattered all over the maps to get the "Extreme Hoarder" achievement. This doesn't need to be done in a single game. Don't forget to win 3 matches of Scavenger, doing so will unlock the Xbow. Equip the Xbow in a gadget slot, and get a kill with it, an assault rifle, and a grenade in one life for "Pocket full of death." If you have the Close Quarters DLC, try to get this achievement on one of those maps, since they're a bit smaller than the Aftermath maps, and generally quicker to get some kills on. Complete the assignment "A Good Demo Man" to unlock the HE bolt for the Xbow. Use the bolt and blow up a land vehicle with it. If you're struggling, you can also use the HE bolt to destroy enemy equipment, like a spawn beacon, and still obtain "Home made javelin" legitimately. For the final achievement, and the one that could take you the longest of all the Aftermath achievements to unlock, is "Handyman." In addition to the Sticks and Stones and A Good Demo Man assignments, you must also do Stay Away From My Tent, It Is Okay To Thank Me, and Go Play Close Quarters to unlock the remaining Xbow attachments. From the main menu of Battlefield 3, select "Solider" and view your assignments to check you progression.
Aftermath has a set of respectable achievements, requiring time and attention to unlock them all. The maps may not be as memorable as any of the ones in previous expansions, but Aftermath is worth playing if you've got a ravenous appetite for more of anything Battlefield 3. Plus, that Xbow is a BEAUT! Use it well!
Props to Rajeanero for the sig!
