Introduction

Immerse yourself in the world of Battlefield 3! This FPS will test true skill in both the campaign, co-op and multiplayer aspects of the game. Do not think you will platinum this without dedication, a good time investment and skill. Since you won't be boosting the multiplayer it will require a good 60-100 hours to platinum (see step 6). Battlefield 3 is engineered with Dice's Frostbite 2 Engine utilizing upgraded physics, gameplay and graphics from previous iterations of the franchise. The game's campaign is short but interesting and the Co-Op missions are fun and multiplayer is one of the greatest on console to date with huge maps, unique gamplay and of course vehicles and destructible environments. It is recommended you have a mic to play the game online as communication is key. All videos are made by me as well with commentaries unless otherwise noted. My video thread is here: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/bat...eo-guides.html

I have written this guide to be very in depth and cover all bases relating to trophies. I am very meticulous in describing what to do in text and videos I have made. Because of this if you are looking for something specific and do not want to scroll through all the information use the Control F to search for what you are searching for.

WALKTHROUGH

STEP ZERO - SIGN UP FOR BATTLELOG
It is highly recommended you sign up for EA Dice's Battlelog to track all online stats. It is helpful for improving your gameplay online and seeing progression towards trophy accomplishments. While you don't need to sign up to understand my trophy guide or platinum the game it makes the leveling process easier as you can see patterns for earning XP. Check my video under the Colonel trophy from 9-minutes until the end for more information on why Battlelog is useful. Link here: Battlelog / Sign in.


STEP 1 - COMPLETE THE CAMPAIGN ON EASY & GO FOR CHAPTER SPECIFIC TROPHIES
I recommend starting and playing through the entire campaign on Easy difficulty first. The reason is getting the chapter specific trophies on hard are extremely difficult and playing through on easy will make a second playthrough on hard more manageable. Your core focus in this step will be to enjoy the campaign and complete it. You may have to replay certain chapters for the more difficult chapter specific trophies but overall it won't pose much of a challenge. I've noted all chapter specific missable trophies in blue text and all story-related trophies in order they will appear through playing the campaign. By the end of this step you should only have to beat the game on hard for your last offline trophy. Story trophies are here (permalinked): http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/bat...ml#post2260597


STEP 2 - COMPLETE THE CAMPAIGN AGAIN ON HARD
If your first playthrough was on Hard difficulty setting then ignore this step. If your first playthrough was on any difficultly other than Hard, replay the entire campaign on the Hard setting from selecting new game. See the trophy description for Semper Fidelis for more tips.


STEP 3 - COMPLETE CO-OP MISSIONS ON EASY + GET CO-OP MISSION SPECIFIC TROPHIES
Find a dedicated partner who will playthrough all 6 missions with you (this step and all steps after it are online only). Ensure you and your partner have mics and will communicate. Make sure one of you knows how to fly a helicopter (for the Fire From The Sky mission). Completing these Co-Op missions shouldn't take more than 1-2 hours on easy. Video guides will be listed in the trophy guide to help you through them as well as show how to get each Co-Op mission specific trophy. You should get all co-op trophies expect beating all missions on hard and unlocking all co-op weapons on this step. Co-Op trophies are here (permalinked): http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/bat...ml#post2260604


STEP 4 - COMPLETE CO-OP MISSIONS ON HARD
This might pose a hefty challenge for some but ensure you have a good partner and communicate. See the trophy description for more details. Be prepared to try some missions over and over again. You will only earn the "Army of Two" trophy in this step.


STEP 5 - GRIND OUT THE CO-OP WEAPONS
Use the last mission checkpoint to grind out remaining XP (points) towards unlocking all Co-Op weapons. You will need 160,000 points (as of patch 1.02, if you do not have this patch installed you will need 441,000 points) to unlock all co-op weapons. More information on this trophy will come in the trophy description as well as a video.


STEP 6 - ONLINE COMPETITIVE MULTIPLAYER TROPHIES (EXCEPT RIBBONS)
The reason I left this step as one of the last is because by doing all the above first you will be ready and used to Battlefield 3's gameplay. Here is where you will spend a good 60-100 hours on BF3 which isn't a bad thing considering the multiplayer is pretty fun (for most). This is where you will work towards all online related trophies in ranked matches. The longest of which will be getting to level 45. All others will likely come naturally as you grind to level 45. Again, tips will be posted under trophy description. IMPORTANT! BOOSTING INCURS THE HEAVY RISK OF BEING BANNED FROM ONLINE, I HIGHLY ADVISED AGAINST BOOSTING, PROOF HERE: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/bat...-boosters.html. Multiplayer trophies are here (permalinked): http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/bat...ml#post2260607


STEP 7 - COMPLETE THE REMAINING RIBBONS YOU NEED ONLINE AFTER REACHING RANK 45
Do not concern yourself with trying to get every Ribbon while leveling yo 45 because the fact is you'll likely get 90% or more of the Ribbons by just playing the game normally and trying new classes and guns. After you've reached level 45 you'd be surprised that some of the Ribbons you thought were going to be very hard you obtained automatically without even trying. The only few Ribbons that may be hard to achieve are the Stationary Emplacement kills and the Air Warfare Ribbons. Again, more information will be in my Ribbon Guide which can be found here (permalinked): http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/bat...ml#post2260610

TROPHY GUIDE



Platinum Trophy
Collect all other Battlefield 3™ Trophies


Story-Related Trophies


- FlashForward
Completed Semper Fidelis

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
You'll get this after completing the introductory chapter of Battlefield 3. It is very short.


- Not on my watch
Protected Chaffin from the soldiers in the street in Operation Swordbreaker

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission SWORDBREAKER. What you need to do is get through the entire level without dying (if you die you must restart the entire chapter) and after you have taken out the sniper with the AT weapon you will have to provide coverfire for a wounded ground soldier from the roof. There are 3 soldiers that come from the left ally and then 3 more from the left and right sides up the road the soldier you're protecting is on after that. Make sure you or him does not die and the trophy will pop at the next checkpoint. Video guide here:


- Shock Troop
Survived the quake

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
You will get this on the mission SWORDBREAKER automatically after completing it. It will pop at the end of the chapter.


- RoadKill
Kicked the car and killed the soldiers in Uprising

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission UPRISING. After progressing through the sewers and coming to an open parking lot area take the right path and do not shoot or be detected by enemies (if you are restart checkpoint) and you'll see a car the looks like it can be pushed off a ledge. Approach it and hit circle and then mash circle to kick the car over and kill a soldier giving you this trophy. Video guide here:


- Involuntary Euthanasia
Killed the 2 soldiers before the building fell on them in Uprising

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission UPRISING. After obtaining the RoadKill trophy you'll entire a garage like facility where enemies will open the garage door to attack you. Kill the 3 enemies and progress to the bus in a bit up the road but DO NOT LEAVE INSIDE THE BUS. Run to the end of the bus let ut get hit with an RPG and then take out the 3 enemies from the bus. Now look to where your objective marker is, as soon as you step out of the bus 2 enemies will appear from behind cover a little ways behind where your checkpoint is. Also a building will come crashing down the second you step off the bus so be quick and headshot the 2 enemies before the building falls. Video guide here:


- You can be my wingman anytime
Completed Going Hunting in a perfect run

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission GOING HUNTING. The best thing to do for this is to watch the video guide. Basically, this trophy can be super annoying as if you mess up you have to replay the entire chapter and rewatch the opening scene. You will be a wingman for a pilot and will have to fend off attacks from enemy jets and destroy them.

- There are a total of 7 enemy jets you will have to kill and in order to do it in a perfect run you will need to only fire 1 rocket per jet (for a total of 7 rockets fired and you cannot miss any. If enemy jet deploys flares and cause your rocket to miss you've failed). Take note that after 5 jets have been killed there is a mini cutscene and then 2 more jets appear behind you. Simply do what you did with the first 5 jets.
- You must not get hit with any enemy rockets and meaning you must deploy your flares at the right times.

The trophy will pop when you get underneath the jet to laze targets for airstrike at a saving checkpoint. Video guide here:


- Where are the other two?
Found the nuke

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
You will get this on the mission OPERATION GUILLOTINE automatically after completing it. It will pop at the end of the chapter.


- The Professional
Completed the street chase in Comrades in under 2 minutes 30 seconds without dying

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission COMRADES. This trophy can be very annoying because it is at the end of this mission. When you take off your mask and are at the doors leading outside an area where police cars and rebel forces are fighting in the street this is where the trophy starts and if you die anytime after this you will need to replay the entire mission so be careful. Don't bother shooting anyone just run through and follow the man you are suppose to chase and try to run behind cover (maneuver between cars) to avoid bullets. The trophy will pop shortly after you progress through your second archway after seeing the RPG mini cutscene. The 2:30 minutes is very easy to accomplish, the surviving is not. It is recommended that you watch the video and listen to what I say. It is important to take the route specifically outlined in the video to avoid fire and death. Even on easy it is easy to die. Video guide here:


- This is the end
Failed to prevent the attack

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
You will get this on the mission COMRADES automatically after completing it. It will pop at the end of the chapter.


- Scrap Metal
Destroyed 6 enemy tanks before reaching the fort in Thunder Run

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission THUNDER RUN. This trophy is fairly easy and is essentially unmissable really. Right at the beginning of the level you will be on top a 50-Cal machine gun of a tank and then you will drop down into the tank to take control (driving and firing shells). Progress a bit further and your team will point out 6 enemy tanks crossing the desert with orange markets. Switch to thermal vision if it helps with R1 and engage the tanks. Fire shells with L1. On easy 1 shell = dead tank. Be quick to kill all 6 tanks and the trophy will pop! Video guide here:


- Army of Darkness
Shot out the 4 lights with 4 bullets in Night Shift

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission NIGHT SHIFT. This trophy is fairly easy and is right at the beginning of the level. The first thing you need to do is snipe 4 lights to provide darkness for an LZ. You can only fire 4 shots from your sniper rifle to take these lights out. The trick is to shoot the lights at the top (they are hanging by a black bar which is what you want to shoot, not the light itself). If you mess up just restart checkpoint. Video guide here (watch in 720p full screen to see the black bars on top the lights I shoot):


- Twofor
Took down 2 enemies with 1 bullet in Night Shift

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission NIGHT SHIFT. This trophy is fairly easy and is shortly after you get the Army of Darkness trophy. After going onto the street level, progressing a bit and climbing back up a ladder to a smaller rooftop you will spot 2 enemies you need to take out in order for the mobile force to progress. Simply line up a head shot between the 2 people and take them both out with 1 bullet. Video guide here:

- Wanted: Dead or Alive
Captured Al Bashir

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
You will get this on the mission NIGHT SHIFT automatically after completing it. It will pop at the end of the chapter.


- What the hell *are* you?
Took a Russian Dog Tag in the forest ambush in Rock And A Hard Place

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. This trophy is fairly easy and is right at the beginning of the mission. After progressing a little ways into the level you will be ambushed and will have to progress up the left side of a forest to take out hostiles. Simply run up to one and knife them (can be a normal swipe not the animated motion). You will automatically take their dog tag and get the trophy. Video guide here:


- Butterfly
Took down the jet in one attempt in Rock And A Hard Place

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission ROCK AND A HARD PLACE. This trophy can be very annoying because it is at the end of this mission. You have to get through this entire chapter without a single death or you will have to start over (To avoid it glitching). Basically at the end of the chapter where your group discusses what to do after you've finished fighting waves of Russian paratroopers there will be an incoming jet with strafing runs on your position. You need to immediately move from cover to cover behind your CO (guy you are suppose to follow) in order to survive. Stick directly to his back when you duck down. When you get to the truck you will have to move without the CO to the Stinger missile to take down the jet. Just run straight for the Stinger, pick it up, lock on and take out the jet right where you picked up the Stinger and the jet shouldn't hit you. It is recommended that you watch the video and listen to what I say. It is important to take the route specifically outlined in the video to avoid fire and death. Even on easy it is easy to die. Video guide here:


- Practice makes perfect
Headshot each of the targets in the gun range in Kaffarov

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission KAFFAROV. You will know you've reached the room you are suppose to be in for this trophy when wooden targets start popping up in a red light room. Progress through the room and kill the enemies but be careful not to shoot any wooden targets. If you accidently hit a target restart checkpoint. Make sure you headshot every wooden target throughout the area (it is a small area) and the trophy is yours. Don't worry about only shooting one bullet per target, as long as you hit their heads it is enough. Video guide here:


- No Escape
Captured Kaffarov

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
You will get this on the mission KAFFAROV automatically after completing it. It will pop at the end of the chapter.


- Between a rock and a hard place
Beat Solomon, flawlessly, in The Great Destroyer

This is a chapter specific missable trophy.
You will get this on the mission THE GREAT DESTROYER. It is at the end of the chapter. After the car accident you will engage Solomon in a series of short quick time events. Simply press all the buttons correctly during this ending sequence and the trophy will pop. If you fail you may have to replay the entire chapter (but restart checkpoint first and see if it pops). Video guide here:


- Ooh-rah!
Completed the campaign story

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
Simply beat the campaign, this will come during the ending credits of the game shortly after you receive the Between a rock and a hard place trophy (if you did it correctly).


- Semper Fidelis
Completed the campaign story on Hard

This trophy is story-related and cannot be missed.
This may pose a significant challenge to many players. The game can be brutally hard because of how cheap enemies are (takes very little bullets to kill you and the enemies are pretty damn accurate not to mention exploding cars, and destructible cover which means you have to choose where your characters goes wisely). General tips are:

1. USE COVER and never leave it. If it gets destroyed move to another piece of cover.
2. BE PATIENT! Do not rush, take your time and systematically take out one enemy at a time.
3. NEVER ADVANCE until you see the saving icon or your team says it is clear.
4. AIM FOR THE HEAD it will insta-kill most enemies.
5. USE AIM ASSIST, constantly move in and out of ADS mode to auto-acquire targets.
6. BURST FIRE! Make sure you fire your weapons in short bursts to control recoil.
7. YOU'RE NOT SUPERMAN! If you get hit even ONCE go PRONE and recover your health before you reengage targets.

Co-Op Related Trophies


- Car Lover
Completed the mission without losing a humvee in Operation Exodus

It is recommended you play this Co-Op mission, Operation Exodus, on easy. Take note that you have 5 humvees behind you when you spawn in. Your job is to make sure none of those get taken out. To do this you must ensure you make enemies with RPGs and Tanks the primary targets when they appear on the map as you progress. RPG enemies appear on rooftops of buildings and balconies and tanks come from alleyways and down the roads. Make sure you plant AT Mines and know where the Ammo Boxes are (left side of the bridge at the beginning) to replenish Javelin missiles. It has glitched on a few people who have ended the match with all 5 humvees intact. Simply replay the mission until it pops. It should eventually. Here is a video to show you what to do:


- Untouchable
Completed the mission without using the fire extinguisher in Fire From The Sky

It is recommended you play this Co-Op mission, Fire From The Sky, on easy. This is one of the more simple trophies as all it requires is that you do not take an excessive amount of damage at one time. To minimize damage you should always focus on enemy armor (tanks, transports and mobile AAs) when they appear on the map as those are things that will cause severe damage to your helicopter. Communication is key between the gunner and pilot. Make sure the pilot knows how to fly the helicopter and use the rockets effectively and as the gunner be aware that you have a laser guided missile to aid in taking out enemy armor. If you do get damaged just don't use the fire extinguisher.


- Ninjas
Reached the VIP without setting off the alarm in Exfiltration

It is recommended you play this Co-Op mission, Exfiltration, on easy. In order to do this you MUST be in sync with your partner for kills (ie communicate over mic a countdown to kill enemies at the same time). You must only use the silenced pistol and must not be spotted. Luckily only the first 3 minutes of this mission are required for the trophy though so restarting if you make an error is not that bad. You will move through rooms and hallways with enemies and after taking out the first 4 enemies there will be CAMERAS in the corners which you will have to take out before progressing. You will eventually come to stairs where there will be enemies + cameras. You will have to take them out at the same time as well (one person shoot the camera and the other shoot the enemy). Progressing further up the stairs you will have 2 enemies + 1 camera where you will have to shoot multiple bullets into the enemies to kill them while the other person shoots the camera. Here is the video guide:


- Push On
Reached the garage without going into man-down state in Hit and Run

It is recommended you play this Co-Op mission, Hit and Run, on easy. This trophy is self-explanatory, simply do not get or have your partner get downed while progressing through the level. It may take more than one try to know where the enemies come from but it is fairly easy to do on easy. Use cover and the aim assist (aim in and out of sights to auto-acquire targets) to ensure you progress safely and do not get swarmed. Don't rush into enemies as most use shotguns and can take you out at close range with a few well placed shots. Use the PDW weapons to shoot them from afar.


- Bullseye
Saved the hostages without alerting any enemies in Drop 'em Like Liquid

It is recommended you play this Co-Op mission, Drop 'em Like Liquid on easy. Like the Ninjas trophy you will be doing another stealth mission so communication between you and your co-op partner is key. You have to complete the mission (until you rescue the hostages) without ALERTING the enemies, There is some small leeway here because IF enemies are aware they are getting shot you have a small time frame to kill the enemy before the alarm is set off. You will see the enemy reach for a headset to set off the alarm or run to alert his buddies, kill him before this or else you'll have to restart the mission. It is recommended you aim for headshots but you can put multiple Sniper bullets into an enemy to make sure he goes down. Also if you find it hard to stand and hold your breathe to snipe you can go prone in order to deploy bipod to auto-steady as well as deploy bipod on ledges/window stills (just keep ADSing until the bipod is deployed).

Special note, it's good to wait until enemies stop walking before you try and take shots. There are 2 parts where the mobile force you are supporting throws flashbangs to distract enemies (midway through in a bus and at the end of the mission into a house) wait for the flashbangs to go off before you start shooting or else you will fail the mission. On the parts where you have 3 enemies to take out you have to be quick with the Sniper to get all 3. Here is a video to show you what to do:


- In the nick of time
Disarmed the bomb in under 20 seconds in The Eleventh Hour

It is recommended you play this Co-Op mission, The Eleventh Hour, on easy. A fairly easy trophy to get, you just have to rush for the subway car where the bomb is (spray and pray enemies in your way as you get to it) and have your co-op partner fend off enemies as you diffuse the bomb with the series of quick time events you must follow. You have to reach the bomb before the timer shows 40 seconds, just restart if the timer is below the 40 second mark. Here is a video done by PowerPyx to show you what to do:


- Two-rah!
Complete all co-op missions

Simply complete all 6 co-op missions on any difficulty and this trophy will unlock. It does not matter which order you complete them in. The 6 missions you must complete are:
- Operation Exodus
- Fire From The Sky
- Exfiltration
- Hit and Run
- Drop em Like Liquid
- The Eleventh Hour

The Co-Op specific trophies give you a good indication on what you have to do to complete each mission, so follow those and get the specific trophies along the way if you want a guide on how to beat each Co-Op mission.


- Army of Two
Complete all co-op missions on Hard

This is the true test of the Co-Op experience. It is essentially hard mode from the story but with a partner. Therefore it will require more than what was listed in the Hard playthrough tips to beat. It requires good communication and strategies between you and your partner to get through each of the 6 missions on hard. It is highly recommended that you play with a partner who has a good connection and that you have one as well (try to find local partners if possible to minimize lag and delay). Same strategies from hard carry over, use your knowledge of previous run throughs to your advantage so that you know where enemy spawns are and good spots of cover/ammo box locations.


- Lock 'n' Load
Unlock all unique co-op weapons

This trophy requires you to get 160,000 points in Co-Op score to unlock all 7 weapons (which can be used in competitive multiplayer). This is where the Battlelog can come in handy. If you click on your soldier's stats and then on the Weapons and Equipment tab on the left side shows your kit unlocks (See the Colonel trophy 2nd spoiler for screen shot). Weapons to be unlocked are:

General: MP412 Rex - 5,000 Points
Assault: KH2002 - 17,000 Points
General: MP7 - 34,000 Points
Recon: M39 EMR - 58,000 Points
General: 93R - 86,000 Points
Engineer: SG553 - 120,000 Points
Assault: G3A3 - 160,000 Points

Patch 1.02 significantly reduced the amount of points needed from 441K to 160K to unlock all weapons. You won't even need to grind this anymore as just playing Co-Op missions for the other trophy will likely get you this trophy naturally. If you do need to grind replay the final mission "The Eleventh Hour" and fail the bomb sequence over and over.

Mutliplayer Related Trophies


- M.I.A
Took your first enemy Dog Tag

You take enemy Dog Tags by knifing the enemy player. You'll likely get this naturally but if you ever see a camper or are able to approach someone from behind hit to initiate the knifing sequence when they are in (close) range. The first knife kill you get will net you this trophy.

- Vehicle Warfare
Received all 3 vehicle warfare ribbons

This will come when working towards the Decorated trophy (see that trophy for ribbon guide). The 3 ribbons specific to this trophy are:
1. Armored Warfare (Tanks)
2. Transport Warfare (AMTRAC)
3. Air Warfare (Jets/Helicopters)


- Support Efficiency
Received all 4 support efficiency ribbons

This will come when working towards the Decorated trophy (see Ribbon Guide in next post). The 4 ribbons specific to this trophy are:
1. Surveillance Efficiency (MUAV from Recon Kit)
2. Medic Efficiency (Defibrillator from Assault Kit)
3. Repair Efficiency (Repair Tool from Engineering Kit)
4. Resupply Efficiency (Resupply ability from Support Kit)


- Infantry Efficiency
Received all 4 weapon efficiency ribbons

This will come when working towards the Decorated trophy (see Ribbon Guide in next post). The 4 ribbons specific to this trophy are:
1. Assault Efficiency (7 Kills with Assault Rifles in 1 Round)
2. LMG Efficiency (7 Kills with LMGs in 1 Round)
3. Carbine Efficiency (7 Kills with Carbines in 1 Round)
4. Sniper Efficiency (7 Kills with Sniper Rifles in 1 Round)


- It's better than nothing!
3rd MVP in a ranked match

You must come 3rd place in score between both teams (yours and enemies) in order to achieve this ribbon. Again, when playing to level 45 and going for the Decorated trophy this will come naturally. For tips on how to score big points easy see the Most Valuable Player trophy.


- 1st Loser
2nd MVP in a ranked match

The same as the It's better than nothing! trophy but for 2nd place.


- Most Valuable Player
MVP in a ranked match

Some may find this hard if they aren't the greatest at FPS. However you can gain massive points by playing the objective and using your abilities to help your team! If you're struggling with this trophy feel free to check out this video:


- Colonel
Achieve rank 45

This is going to be where you spend the majority of your time in this game when going for platinum. This trophy will vary in time between each person based on the SCORE PER MINUTE (SPM). It will take 1,600,000 XP to reach rank 45. Again, this is where having the Battlelog Handy really comes in Handy as it shows you every single stat you can pretty much imagine and you can use this to make yourself a better player.



SAJIKO'S BATTLEFIELD 3 MULTIPLAYER LEVELING GUIDE

First, let me outline some general tips for you before I go into the specifics. The best game mode to play purely for points is CONQUEST. The reason for this is because by neutralizing and capturing flags you can get 350-450 points in a minute. Also, if you are not the best FPS player you can hop in tanks and wait at the objectives instead of being a foot soldier and more susceptible. See the video posted below for more information:


0:00 - 9:00 Minutes I talk about general tips to get a high score in game
9:00 - 17:58 Minutes I talk about how to use the Ribbons and Medals to get even more XP

The second thing you need to understand about this multiplayer is how to effectively use your class to support your team. Obviously the more wins you have the faster you will level up as winning grants you the "Win X Game Mode" ribbon which is 500 additional XP. Communication and teaming up with friends leads to effective ways to win matches. On a side note be sure to USE YOUR ABILITIES! That are unique to your class/kit which I will outline below:

The Assault/Medic Kit:
If you are a medic use the Defibrillator (Left on D-pad) to revive teammates wisely (do not rush out to revive people in the open until it is clear). Also use your health kits even when teammates are not damaged. If you see them engaged in a firefight throw them a health kit (Right on D-pad) as you pass or throw health kits down by objectives, it will likely be put to use. This kit is best used for getting lots of kills.

The Engineering Kit:
As an Engineer you will have access to RPGs to take out enemy armor and either Anti-Tank mines or a Repair Tool (The EOD bots use is limited). I recommend usually going for the AT Mines (Left on D-pad) as planting them at key objective points can easily net you 500+ points if you get a double kill from taking out a tank.

The Support Kit:
A very essential class to have on your team/squad. This class allows for resupply of equipment like grenades and claymores as well as ammo for guns. You will get TONS of resupply points (and ribbons) if you use this class and spam your ammo boxes (right on D-pad) on teammates as they will likely ALWAYS need supplies.

The Recon Kit:
This kit is actually useful if someone who uses it knows what they are doing. It is generally not that great to gain lots of points but as a Recon class (Using a Sniper most likely) on your team they can really help you out if they consistently spot enemies on the map for you.

*A special note* You do not have to use specific weapons only available to that class. For example if you want to level your Support class but hate the LMGs you can use the general unlocks weapons like a PP-2000 PDW instead.

Now onto improving your leveling process through the use of Battlelog. First lets walk through the main page. Click the spoiler to view my demo image and the tips I've posted on there in relation to the information posted:

See what weapons you are using, track the kills with each one and try to finish getting 100-200 kills with each weapon to get all unlockable accessories (giving 200XP each). Getting weapon service stars awards 2000XP per 100 kills with any weapon. Moving to different weapons will net you more XP however sticking with the weapons you are good with will net you constant service stars. As you can see I love using the M16A3 and I have been rewarded a lot of XP for it. This leads into the next picture where I will discuss Weapon and Equipment Unlocks:

It is better and much easier to view your progression from the Battlelog. It shows you your currently XP earned per kit and how close you are to getting the next unlock for that kit. Utilize your kits effectively as outlined above to level them up. One great instance is if you capture a flag in CONQUEST as an Engineering class and get 250XP, that will be attributed to leveling the Engineering kit! The same goes for if you were in a vehicle or another kit. Use the kit you want to get unlocks for by gaining XP with it. Everytime you reach the max score for a kit you will get a service star for the kit which gives 10000XP.

Finally I will be discussing the AWARD SYSTEM which will lead into the Decorated Trophy in the post below with in depth guides on how to get every ribbon legit.

Aiming for high scores will likely net you the MVP Ribbon and Ace Squad Ribbons and hopefully a win ribbon as well. This totals to an additional 1500 XP per match so go for POINTS! A high SPM means you reach level 45 faster.

Trying to attain the same ribbon many times is also very useful to get medals. If you like using an Assault kit, use Assault Rifles and for every 50 ribbons you get you'll unlock the Assault Rifle Medal. 50 Ribbons x 200 points each = 10000XP and then you get an additional 10000XP for getting the medal totaling 20000XP for getting 50 Assault Ribbons! Aim for accomplishing a variety of ribbons which you are good at. You can earn more than 1 of the same ribbon in the same round. If you get 14 kills with assault rifles you will get 2 Assault Rifle ribbons.

Decorated
Received one of each ribbon in the game

Yes this trophy deserves a post of its own. It is likely going to be the most challenging online trophy in the game if you choose not to boost the Ribbons however do not fear because I've got a complete and comprehensive guide for how to get all ribbons! If you check spoiler 3 in the post above (for the Colonel trophy) you will see that there are 45 ribbons total that you will need to get. Before you even look at trying to get any of these Ribbons do yourself a favor and get to level 45 first because I assure you you'll get most Ribbons without even trying! Then finish up the remaining Ribbons you need and get the Platinum by looking here! Battlelog is a great place you can check out your stats and what you've earned and what you need to get. In working towards this trophy you will also get all 3 bronze trophies for getting groups of specific ribbons outlined above as well as the 3 scoring (MVP) silver trophies.. I will make special note of those Ribbons in red in the Ribbon Guide.



SAJIKO'S BATTLEFIELD 3 RIBBON GUIDE


Weapon Kill Ribbons - 9
General Note: Once you have attained X kills with any weapon you were using you can switch weapons or classes (you'll see the ribbon pop up in game notifying you that you have attained it) without worrying of losing the ribbon.

Assault Rifle Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Assault Rifles - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Infantry Efficiency Trophy
Use the Assault class and get 7 kills with any assault rifle. The assault rifles available from the start are the M16A3 for the US and the AK-74M for the RU. Simply get 7 kills with the gun and you'll get this ribbon.

Machine Gun Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Machine Guns - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Infantry Efficiency Trophy
The same as the Assault Rifle Ribbon except you will have to be the Support Class and use any LMG (the default weapon is the Type 88). It is important to know how to use the LMG effectively if you want kills, the guns suffer from high recoil and low stability. It's best to "set up shot" over defending an objective and mow targets down while prone with the bipod deployed. Burst fire is also very effective.

Carbine Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Carbines - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Infantry Efficiency Trophy
Same as the above 2 Ribbons, but you must be using the Engineer class. The first two Carbines available to you at the beginning of the game are the AK-74u on RU side or M4A1 on US side. These guns are made for more close quarter engagements so keep that in mind when trying to attain this.

Sniper Rifle Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Sniper Rifles - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Infantry Efficiency Trophy
I recommend you not try to get this with the default Snipers (Semi-Auto rifles) cause they generally are 2 shot kills. Your best bet (unless you love Sniping) is to use another general weapon for the main weapon slot of the Recon kit and level up that class until you unlock the SV98 (or alternatively, if you have the Co-Op Sniper M39 EMR unlocked at 252,000 Co-Op Score) and use that. Play on Objective game modes like Rush and camp objectives for easy kills. If you're really skilled get headshots which are always 1 shot kills.

Hand Gun Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 4 enemies with Handguns
You can use any class for this, all classes have a Hand Gun as a secondary weapon. The easiest way to get this is to flank enemy positions undetected and take out campers/people from behind. You can kill enemies with 1-2 Headshots.

PDW Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Personal Defense Weapons
PDW is a weapon like the PP-2000 which is unlocked at level 7 or the UMP-45 unlocked at rank 16, both under General (all kits can use it). PDWs are very effective guns at close range are very easy to kill enemies with. Use it like a Carbine/Hand Gun (close quarter engagements and flanking enemies) with the class you are most comfortable with.

Shotgun Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Shotguns
Like the PDW Ribbon, Shotguns will be unlocked under General for use with any kit (so go with the one you are most comfortable with). The first shotgun is actually quite good; the 870MCS at rank 1. Shotguns actually have quite an effective range but you'll be waiting to only use these on smaller and Narrow Maps like Operation Metro and Senine Crossing where there are tight hallways.

Melee Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 4 enemies with Melee Weapons
It's best to go for this when defending on large maps with lots of open area. It is easy to flank around behind enemy lines undetected and take out Machine Gunners and Snipers holding up positions. Make sure you knife from Behind with R2 so you get the insta-kill animation or else it'll take 3-4 swings with the knife to kill someone and they'll likely kill you first.

Stationary Emplacement Ribbon - 200XP
In a round, kill 2 enemies with Emplaced Weapons
This one is hard, you have to use the rocket launchers that are positioned on the map (hit circle to enter them) and cannot be moved. They are all over the place (Check Battlelog if you need more help, they look like this:

Basically you must try and hit an enemy vehicle and score the kill with this. Take out tanks, jeeps, etc. These are freefire so you need to manually hit the target and make sure you get the last shot in. You can try to kill foot soldiers but it is significantly harder. You can also try and use AA guns to take down Helicopters if you're lucky.



Type-Specific Kill Ribbons - 6

Avenger Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 2 Avenger Kills
You'll likely get this without even trying, but all you have to do is kill an enemy shortly after they've killed a teammate (~within 2 seconds). If you wanna try and get this camp an objective and watch teammates who are engaging in firefights, they'll likely go down and enemies will rush in to take objectives granting you easy kills.

Savior Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 2 Savior Kills
You'll likely get this without even trying, all you have to do is kill an enemy who has damaged a teammate before that teammate is killed. Flank enemies from behind, engage in 2v1 firefights and so fourth if you really want to try for this ribbon.

Nemesis Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 2 Nemesis Kills
You must become someone's Nemesis to earn this. You have to kill someone 5 times in order to get one Nemesis kill bonus (Does not have to be in a row and you can die multiple times, even by the person you are trying to get the Nemesis bonus against), then if you kill the same person 1 more time (6 times total) to get another Nemesis bonus and you will get the ribbon. Or you can kill 2 separate people 5 times each. You can try to go for this in Squad Deathmatch and it might be easier. Again, you CAN die and can other players in between.

Squad Wipe Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 2 Squad Wipe Bonuses
This one may seem really tough but you'll probably get it naturally. You need to kill an entire enemy squad of 4 people causing them all to be on the respawn screen. So you have about 10 seconds to clear an entire squad before they start respawning. This is best done on smaller maps (like Operation Metro during Conquest) or in squad based gameplay. As a last resort you can boost this in an empty server with a friend(s).

Combat Efficiency Ribbon - 500 XP
In a round, get 3 Streak Bonuses
You need to get on a killstreak of 8 (8 kills without dying will give you 3 streak bonuses) to get one of these ribbons (check my video in Colonel at 6:15 and 7:30). In the Colonel video you can see I easily achieved this while in a Main Battle Tank but you can do it with a gun as well. Sniper Rifles if you are not the most confident in your CQB FPS skills. Best done on defending maps. Alas as a last resort you can boost this in an empty server with a friend(s).

Accuracy Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 5 Headshots
Use any gun and aim for the head. You'll get this ribbon more likely than you think as the recoil from guns shoots the gun upwards resulting in unforseen headshot kills. On the kill feed there will be a Marksman Icon after the gun you killed the enemy with indicating a headshot (you'll also see a small bonus that says Headshot 10 under the Enemy Killed 100 that shows up on the screen as well). Get 5 headshots in one round and this ribbon is yours.

Default

Support Ribbons - 7

Suppression Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 4 Suppression Assists
Recommended that you use the Suppression perk after you've unlocked it at rank 17 as it increasing the "Suppression Effect" of incoming bullets. What this means is when you shoot at an enemy there screen goes blurry and they get disoriented. These assists are worth 50 points each. You have to get 4 in one round which is a lot of kills forfeited for a ribbon (your teammate must get the kill). So basically shoot at an enemy but don't kill them (shoot to the side of them) and have a teammate kill them.

Squad Spawn Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 7 Squad Spawn Bonuses
You'll get these without trying, they are very common. Basically if a teammate spawn on you you'll get 10 XP and 1 point towards the 7 needed for this Ribbon. It also counts if they spawn on your Spawn Beacon if you are a Recon class. So set up a well place Spawn Beacon and you can get tons of these Ribbons if you like playing as the Recon class.

Anti Explosives Ribbons- 200 XP
In a round, Destroy 2 Enemy Explosives
In my video under the Colonel trophy you see that I plant mines near objectives at 1:15 so look around objectives (flags, Mcoms, etc) for C4, Claymores and Anti-Tank Mines around objectives/roads/staircases/doorways. Simply get destory 2 with your gun, or mounted weapon on a Jeep/Tank and this ribbon is yours.

Medical Efficiency Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 5 Revives - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Support Efficiency Trophy
You'll need to keep your gadget as the Defibrillator (Unlocked at 4000 XP while using Assault class, right on D-pad) for the Assault class and revive enemies as they go down. You can watch the video I posted under the Most Valuable Player trophy for more information. Teammates needed to be revived show up on the mini-map as well on the game screen. Be careful not to rush to revive them as you may get killed yourself. Be smart and plan your revives. Teammates do not have to accept the revive for it to count.

Resupply Efficiency Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 7 Resupplies - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Support Efficiency Trophy
Throw down supplies like a mad man while playing as the Support class. If this is your class of choice you should be throwing down the resupplies (right on D-pad) every time you see teammates as well as on objectives. You should get heaping amounts of this Ribbon.

Maintenance Efficiency Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 7 Repairs - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Support Efficiency Trophy
You need to be the Engineer class to get this trophy and keep the Repair Tool as your Gadget (left on D-pad). Basically just go around in a vehicle and play the game normally if the vehicle gets damaged with RPGs or something get to safety and repair it or look for teammates' vehicles who are damaged and repair them. You need to repair about 70% of a vehicle to get 7 repairs (worth 10 XP each) and this Ribbon. They do not need to be all at once or all on the same vehicle.

Surveillance Efficiency Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, get 5 Motion Sensor Assists - This is 1/4 Ribbons needed for the Support Efficiency Trophy
As of patch 1.02 you can get this trophy with the T-UGS that is available when you hit 5000 points with the Recon kit under equipment. You can also use the the MAV gadget (unlocked at a Recon score of 45000). Drop the T-UGS or fly the MAV into a high traffic area like B flag on conquest and as enemies move the equipment will beep and enemies in the area will show up on the mini map for your team. If the enemies are killed you will see "Motion Sensor Assist 20" meaning you got 1/5 needed. Very simple to get now that you can use the T-UGS.



Vehicle Ribbons - 5

Disable Vehicle Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, Disable 4 Enemy Vehicles
See the video posted under Colonel trophy at 1:15 to 2:10 to see how to effectively place anti-tank mines. Essentially though, play as the Engineer and use RPG-based weapons, Anti-Tank mines placed in strategic positions (On roads, near flags, etc) and your own team's vehicles (Tanks, AMTRAC, etc) to destroy enemy armor and jeeps. Keep resupplied on your AT weapons or die and respawn as the engineer to get more supplies. It's important to make note you can only have 6 AT Mines down at one time, if you place more the ones already placed will disappear. Use the +Explosives perk with the Engineer to have more AT weapons.

Anti Vehicle Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, Destroy 3 Enemy Vehicles
Same as the above ribbon, if you disable the vehicle with AT mines it is likely you will also destroy it. Be careful when shooting RPGs you have to make sure you get the last shot in to kill the vehicle and not get an assist. Easiest done with AT mines, again see the video posted under Colonel trophy at 1:15 to 2:10 to see how to effectively place anti-tank mines.

Air Warfare Ribbon - 200 XP - This is 1/3 Ribbons needed for the Vehicle Efficiency Trophy
In a round, Kill 5 enemies with Air Vehicles
You need to 5 kills with 2-seater attack helicopters (Viper or Havoc), the scout choppers (LittleBird or ZW-11) or jets in one round. Play with someone who you can communicate with. If you're the pilot of an attack Helo you fire rockets so this may be easier to get on the objective game modes like Conquest. Otherwise be the gunner and mow down targets to the best of your abilities. Trying to get this in jets is difficult and not advised.

Transport Warfare Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, kill 4 enemies with Transport Vehicles - This is 1/3 Ribbons needed for the Vehicle Efficiency Trophy
To get this you need to get kills in vehicles that can transport your team. The easiest by far is the AMTRAC's main gunner because it is a light armored tank that fires powerful rounds that can destroy buildings and tanks in a few hits and foot soldiers in 1 hit. You can also get this in jeeps and LFVs though. Check Battlelog's vehicle tab under your soldier stats for more information if you need it.

Armored Warfare Ribbon - 200 XP - This is 1/3 Ribbons needed for the Vehicle Efficiency Trophy
In a round, kill 7 enemies with Land Vehicles
The primary land vehicles you will want to use for this are the main battle tanks (the T-90 and M1 ABRAMS). Check the video under the Colonel trophy from the beginning to 9 minutes to see how I effectively used a tank to get 7 kills. As you level up your tank you'll get better perks like a coaxial LMG mounted on your tank's main weapon you can switch between making killing foot soldiers much easier.

Game-Mode Related Ribbons - 14

Rush Ribbon - 200 XP
Finish a Rush round
Very easy, play the Rush game mode until the end (stats screen). It doesn't matter if you joined late or are attacking or defending.

Rush Winner Ribbon - 500 XP
Win a Rush round
To win a Rush round you either have to successfully repel an enemy attack on all your M-Com Stations (while defending) by killing enemies and preventing them to advance on all your M-Coms by planting bombs and blowing them up. Once you make the enemy use up all their respawns you will win (75-99 attacker respawns depending on the map). To win an attacking round it is the exact opposite, you have to blow up each successive area's M-Com station before your team's respawn counter runs out, once you destroy 2 M-Coms in the area the respawn counter resets for the next area.

M-COM Attacker Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, blow up 2 M-COM stations
This trophy requires you to be really aggressive in a RUSH round. You have to be on the attacking team. The maps that are larger (more M-Coms to go through) are better. These maps are like Kharg Island give you more opportunities to get 2 M-Coms in 1 round. If you are having lots of trouble wait for your team to arm one M-Com and then go to the other one. It also helps if you have a squad which you can move as a unit with to support you.

M-COM Defender Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, defend 2 M-COM stations
This is kinda hard but not really if you are TRYING for it. If you have leveled up your support class enough to have C4 or Claymores just camp an M-Com and watch it for when it is being armed to detonate C4 / your claymore goes off. Give yourself some supplies and put more C4/Claymores down and repeat. In order to get the "defend" bonus the enemies have to literally be within 3 meters of the M-Com/arming it. You do not have to defend 2 of the same M-Com station.

Conquest Ribbon - 500 XP
Finish a Conquest Round
Very easy, play a Conquest game mode until the end (stats screen). It doesn't matter if you joined late.

Conquest Winner Ribbon - 500 XP
Win a Conquest Round
In order to win a Conquest round you have to capture and hold flags (like Domination from Call of Duty). If you hold more 2/3 or 3/4 flags the enemy teams' points will start to drain faster than yours (it "bleeds" them respawns on the counter above your minimap). This should pose no trouble at all, just keep switching servers until you get on a good team if you keep losing.

Flag Attacker Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, do 4 flag captures
CONQUEST GAME MODE. This is also really easy, easier on the bigger maps like Kharg Island since there are more points and more spaced out giving you time to get an objective before enemies return. You must get a flag capture or flag capture assist in order to get this flag. Watch the video I have posted under the Colonel trophy for more information (the first 9 minutes).

Flag Defender Ribbon - 200 XP
In a round, do 5 flag defends
CONQUEST GAME MODE. This is really easy. Try to take B objective/enemy's native flag (A or C) and you can camp around the flag and kill enemies anywhere on the map (they can be far away from the objective) as long as you are in the proximity of the flag you will get the defender bonus. This does not need to be done on the same flag or have to be done on the same holding period of a flag. Watch the video I have posted under the Colonel trophy for more information (the first 9 minutes).

Team Deathmatch Ribbon - 200 XP
Finish a Team Deathmatch round
Very easy, play a TDM game mode until the end (stats screen). It doesn't matter if you joined late.

TDM Winner Ribbon - 500 XP
Win a Team Deathmatch round
This is a standard Team Deathmatch round, to win your entire team has to be the first to reach X kills (usually 100). It's real hit or miss unless you are godly at FPSes or someone on your team is. You could get paired with bad and good players. To minimize this it's always better to play with a squad and communicate.

Squad Deathmatch Ribbon - 200 XP
Finish a Squad Deathmatch round
Very easy, play a Squad Deathmatch game mode until the end (stats screen). It doesn't matter if you joined late.

Squad Deathmatch Winner Ribbon - 500 XP
Win a Squad Deathmatch round
To win a Squad Deathmatch round your squad of 4 people (including you) have to be the first team of 4 to reach 50 kills. It is a KILL based mode therefore make sure you're playing with decent players and communicating. Just as a side note, I was playing with buddies and we were moving as a unit and we played 9 rounds straight and won all them them by over 75% in kills because we were communicating. However joining random matches should suffice to get you on a winning team easily enough.

Squad Rush Ribbon - 200 XP
Finish a Squad Rush round
Very easy, play a Squad Rush game mode until the end (stats screen). It doesn't matter if you joined late.

Squad Rush Winner Ribbon - 500 XP
Win a Squad Rush Round
Just like the Squad Deathmatch trophy communication is key to coordinate how to attack each M-Com. The game is set up 2vs2 squads. If both squads converge on 1 M-Com it can make the round very fast. However, joining random matches should suffice to get you this Ribbon easily enough.



Scoring (MVP) Ribbons - 4

Ace Squad Ribbon - 500 XP
In a round, be part of the Best Squad
Your entire squad has to have a collective score higher than any other squad across both teams. The more people you have on your squad the better chance you have of this (Max 4) but this ribbon will likely come naturally as you play. Just make sure you are getting points by getting kills, using your class abilities, destroying vehicles and playing objectives. To get it automatically, win a squad-based game mode.

MVP Ribbon - 500 XP
In a round, be the Best Player - This Ribbon is needed for the Most Valuable Player Trophy
Have the highest score between both teams. To do this check the video I posted under the trophy Most Valuable Player. Just make sure you are getting points by getting kills, using your class abilities, destroying vehicles and playing objectives.

MVP 2 Ribbon - 400 XP
In a round, be the 2nd Best Player - This Ribbon is needed for the 1st Loser Trophy
A real hit or miss just aim for MVPing each round, this will come naturally as you level to 45. Again use the same strategies I discussed in the videos and 1st place MVP ribbon description.

MVP 3 Ribbon - 300 XP
In a round, be the 3rd Best Player - This Ribbon is needed for the It's better than nothing! Trophy
A real hit or miss just aim for MVPing each round, this will come naturally as you level to 45. Again use the same strategies I discussed in the videos and 1st place MVP ribbon description.
