Default Battlefield 4: Roadmap and Trophy Guide

Another guide has been chosen as the preferred guide for this game.
This thread has been closed and is not maintained and as a result may contain outdated or incorrect information. Please follow the link below for the preferred guide.

Guide by AlphaCookie

This guide is only permitted to use by PS3T and PS3T affiliates. Plagiarism will be swiftly dealt with. If this guide inspired you to join the site, welcome to the community.

Overview:
Estimated trophy difficulty: 4/10, personal estimate, site estimate pending vote
Offline trophies: 37 (24 , 11 , 2 )
Online trophies: 6 (2 , 2 , 1 , 1)
Approximate amount of time to platinum: 40+ hours depending on skill
Minimum number of playthroughs: 1, 2 preferred
Number of missable trophies: None, but some can glitch.
Glitched trophies: Recon and Full Arsenal, detailed below
Does difficulty affect trophies?: Yes, the game must be at least completed on Hard
Do cheat codes disable trophies?: No cheats.

Introduction:
Welcome to Battlefield 4, DICE’s latest entry to the Battlefield series. This time, DICE decided to focus the majority of the trophies on the extremely short single player. Multiplayer is nothing compared to Battlefield 3 in terms of trophy difficulty either. Those looking for a relatively easy platinum have come to the right place. There might be some bumps along the way with a few freezes, or some other ridiculous glitch, but the platinum is still very well obtainable.

Roadmap:

Step 1: Single-Player on Hard
The single player in Battlefield 4 will take an average FPS player somewhere around 4 hours to complete on hard. Due to the risk of your campaign being wiped, it’s best to try and do this without turning off the game. In the event you need to, back up your save frequently. Also, try not to step into multiplayer until you at least finish hard mode, as that has been linked to campaign wipes. Utilize the provided video guides to pick up as many collectibles as you can. Attempt to get the trophy scores on every mission, which in turn will complete all the campaign assignments. If you fail however, don’t worry as you can clean up on easy and quickly rack up killstreaks and multikills to more than easily reach the trophy scores.

In this step, you will earn at least:
  • Fishing in Baku
  • Wolf in sheep’s clothing
  • The fall of a Titan
  • Braving the storm
  • Dead by dawn
  • Antediluvian
  • Guns at Dawn
  • Fish
  • Wolf
  • Tombstone

If you completed all the score challenges in this step, which is very likely:
  • Dunn’s Pride
  • Storm Bringer
  • A one-man riot
  • Terror of the deep
  • Gladiator
  • Demolition Man
  • Guardian of the Fleet

You will also earn at least one of the following ending trophies:
  • For tombstone
  • For the people
  • For the cause


Step 2: Easy Mode Clean-Up:
I preferred to run through on Easy mode to quickly clean up mission specific trophies. Getting the kills is a lot less frustrating, and for example with the Adrenaline kills, is easier to run through enemies and take the required damage without dying. You might have gotten some or even most of these trophies playing through on hard. If you missed any collectibles this is also the step to get them. You will also want to play the final mission two more times to unlock the remaining two ending trophies, and the trophy for viewing all 3 endings. The multiplayer weapons will be extremely beneficial for the final step as well.

At the end of this step, you will have:
  • Well placed
  • Wrecker
  • Blood wake
  • War turtle
  • Infiltrator
  • Shawshank
  • For tombstone
  • For the people
  • For the cause
  • Patience is a virtue
  • Stumbled over it
  • It was on the way…
  • Took a casual look around
  • Methodical search
  • Done some searching
  • No stone left unturned
  • Every nook and cranny
  • Above and Beyond the Call
  • Recon
  • Full Arsenal


as well as any other trophy you may have missed during your time in campaign

Step 3) Multiplayer
This is the cream of the Battlefield Crop without a doubt. If you bought BF4, this is probably the reason. For the purposes of earning trophies, you will want to complete mode specific trophies as fast as possible in order to focus on the XP requirements for Level 25 and unlocking the M1911 pistol. These multiplayer trophies are the easiest they've been in Battlefield since Battlefield has had trophies.

At the end of this step, you will have:
  • Turn around…
  • Won them all
  • .45 old school
  • Bomb Squad
  • Call me sir
  • Platinum Trophy

Platinum Trophy
Collect all other Battlefield 4™ Trophies

We all know how to earn this puppy.

Campaign Trophies:

For all campaign missions, I recommend your primary loadout be the CZ805 Assault Rifle, and the FY-JS ,.330 Recon, or Scout Elite Sniper Rifles. There's basically two ranges in campaign, Assault Rifle Range and Sniper Rifle Range. You'll want the sniper rifle for easy headshots well into safety (and to keep your squad away from the enemies) and the assault rifle for everything else. But this is down to personal preference, and scoring techniques are detailed in the guide that are irrelevant to weapon preference.

Fishing in Baku
Complete the Baku mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*

Simply complete Mission #1, Fishing in Baku, in the campaign. This will also unlock the MP412 REX for multiplayer, and one of the assignments for Above and Beyond the Call.

Wolves in sheep's clothing
Complete the Shanghai mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*

Simply complete mission #2, Shanghai, in the Campaign

The fall of a Titan
Complete the South China Sea mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*

Simply complete Mission #3, South China Sea, in the Campaign.

Braving the storm
Complete the Singapore mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*

Simply complete Mission #4, Singapore, in the Campaign.

Dead by dawn
Complete the Kunlun Mountains mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*
Simply complete Mission #5, Kunlun Mountains, in the Campaign. This mission will unlock the Shank multiplayer weapon, and one of the assignments for Above and Beyond the Call.

Antediluvian
Complete the Tashgar mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*
Simply complete Mission #6, Tashgar, in the Campaign. This mission will unlock the Machete for multiplayer, and one of the assignments for Above and Beyond the Call.

Guns at dawn
Complete the Suez mission in the Campaign
*This trophy is story related, and cannot be missed*

Simply complete the final mission, Suez, and this trophy will unlock. Depending on the ending you choose, you will earn one of the 3 related trophies and their assignment for Above and Beyond the Call.

Fish
Complete the Campaign on Easy
*Story related, and cannot be missed.* Just complete the campaign on Easy.

Wolf
Complete the Campaign on Normal
*Story related, and cannot be missed.* Just complete the campaign on Medium. Will also unlock Fish.

Tombstone
Complete the Campaign on Hard
*Story related, and cannot be missed.* Just complete the campaign on Hard. Will also unlock Fish and Wolf.

Campaign Scoring Guide:
Regular Kill: 100 points
Headshot: 25 points
Multikill (earned by killing 2+ enemies with one blast or bullet): # of kills x100
Adrenaline Kill (Kill an enemy while having 31% or less health): 50 points
Melee Kill: 25 points
Kill Streak (Kills within 3 seconds of each other): 50 points per kill
Squad Kills (AI Kill): 50 points

All points except Squad Kills are added on top of Regular Kills as a bonus.

Dunn's pride
Obtain 7 000 points in the Baku mission in the Campaign

As with all these trophies, you will need 1,000 more points than the Gold Assignment score on each mission. Meaning, by earning these, you will also finish all but 2 campaign assignments for Above and Beyond the Call.

Scoring 7,000 points in the Baku mission isn't too tough. If attempting to do this on hard, never use the helicopter gunner you'll have available during some of the primary shootouts no matter how much you want to. Aim for headshots, and utilize explosives as much as possible. The M320 can rack up multikills, especially against the enemy transport trucks. On hard, your AI will hardly get any kills unless you command them. Avoid doing that to maximize points. If cleaning up score on easy, you will have to compete with your AI for kills, but getting rapid kills and using C4 to charge groups is made easily possible.

A one-man riot
Obtain 11 000 points in the Shanghai mission in the Campaign

11,000 shouldn't prove too difficult on Shanghai. Again, avoid letting your squad kill as much possible. Make sure to maximize multi-kills, not only will that help you earn the Wrecker trophy, it will maximize your points. You will score about 1,000 points during the final fight with the two Tanks at the end of this mission to help give you any extra boost you might need.

Terror of the deep
Obtain 11 000 points in the South China Sea mission in the Campaign

This mission can be a bit tricky for score. If you progress too fast in the boat sequence, you can miss out on killing some vehicles, and this single sequence will account for the majority of your mission points. If you're scoring in the boat sequence optimally you should get the gold medal for the mission when destroying the helicopter or soon after. But if you move too slow, you'll just be murdered. Pace yourself and don't use vehicle boost. Take your time to kill everything. You'll definitely want to focus on headshots here not only for the points, but for the mission related headshots trophy. Again, avoid letting your squad mates kill as much as possible. If you spread your shots, you can damage the enemy boats enough to line them up into Rapid Kills for even more extra points.

Storm bringer
Obtain 20 000 points in the Singapore mission in the Campaign

This mission more than any needs to be focused on multikills. Don't worry about the RPG kills on your first playthrough if you don't want to. The RPG is weak against infantry with little splash. Focus on headshots and rapid kills. When you come to a footbridge when being escorted by the tanks, run to the top before the tank moves up enough to spawn enemies. You'll be able to toss grenades to the end of the bridge and multikill about 5 or 6 enemies at once for an easy score boost. When you get tank access, utilize it to get as many multikills as possible during it's extended sequence. Also, hang to the outside right when moving to the parking garage, as it's possible to skip a tank encounter, and miss out on 500+ points. During the final areas, you'll have access to the rapid grenade launcher, utilize it in the aircraft hangar for as many multikills as possible. You should walk away with well over the 20,000 if you prevent your squad from killing as much as possible.

Gladiator
Obtain 12 000 points in the Kunlun Mountains mission in the Campaign

Again, multikills are your best friend. Focus on headshots, keep your squad from killing, etc. You'll get a nice little boost in points during the very beginning by remaining stealth and meleeing into the guard tower as well as the Shawshank trophy. During the sequence where Dima has to open the garage, you'll be bombarded by dropping soldiers from helicopters. You will have access to claymores here, booby trap the rear area of the room where they drop and you can net several easy multikills. Once outdoors you should have access to an M320 you can use to try and get more multikills.

Demolition man
Obtain 15 000 points in the Tashgar mission in the Campaign

Tashgar is a mission where you'll have explosives a plenty. Utilize them as much as possible to get the points you need. You'll also have tons of opportunity for rapid kills, headshots galore, and grenade spamming your way into the score record books.

Guardian of the fleet
Obtain 6 000 points in the Suez mission in the Campaign

Suez is extremely easy to get multikills on, and you'll definitely want them. If you spam the rapid grenade launcher as much as possible, prevent your squad from killing, and destroy the helicopter during the final section of the deck of the boat before it can drop off it's soliders for the multi-kill bonus, you can have the 6,000 before even actually entering the boat. As long as you've gotten gold before entering the boat, there should be enough enemies to get you the rest of the way to what you need.

Well placed
Get 10 kills with C4 in the Baku mission in the Campaign

My #1 tip for this is don't do it on hard mode. On Easy, you'll be able to take C4 where ever available and just run straight at enemies. You should be able to get plenty of kills this way. However, the easiest place is when you enter the shooting area with two large catwalk pipes to either side of you. If you charge forward as soon as you reach this area, you can intercept a troop transport truck for 4-5 easy C4 kills, and the enemies will crowd up right before entering the large building for another half dozen or more easy kills. Just make sure not to kill yourself as the kills do not save before a checkpoint, so unless the trophy dings in before you die, you'll lose progress you made between check points.

Wrecker
Get 10 multi-kills in the Shanghai mission in the Campaign

There's multiple opportunities to get multi-kills. Grenades and Claymores will be your best friend. In the case you need more grenades, they can be resupplied by running over dead bodies. You only really need 8 multikills, as the two tanks in the final section of the game will provide 2 more multikills. If aiming specifically for these though with good grenade spamming skills, you can walk away with over 15 multikills if not 20. Like the C4 kills, dying before a checkpoint after getting multikills will rollback your progress to the last checkpoint.

Blood wake
Get 30 headshots in the South China Sea mission in the Campaign

Simple, aim for headshots. This is actually easier on Hard mode because your AI won't kill much of anything. So you maximize the amount of enemies you have to shoot yourself.

War turtle
Get 15 kills with RPG in the Singapore mission in the Campaign

You'll want to get the RPG out of a gadget box as soon as possible, which is right after taking control of the tank for the first time. You can move on foot from here, abandoning the tank, to rack up RPG kills. The parking garage is another place to rack up some easy kills with it. Hang back with the RPG by the resupply box and get as many kills as possible, the RPG is extremely weak against infantry and you'll need direct hits for kills most of the time. Utilize the RPG whenever you can restock it during the level. The final firefight in the hangar is excellent as you can continually restock, and keep your AI on the upper balcony so they don't kill to much.

Do not use the SMAW.

Infiltrator
Get 10 adrenaline kills in the Tashgar mission in the Campaign

Adrenaline Kills are earned whenever you get a kill under 31% health. There is plenty of enemies here to do this conservatively. On easy mode, clear enough enemies normally that you feel safe letting yourself get shot. On easy mode, only something like 1 in 4 enemy bullets will register. Run up to them and let them shoot you down to 31 health and then let er rip. I walked away with the 10 kills before the end of the very first area doing this.

Shawshank
Get 5 kills with Shank in the Kunlun Mountains mission in the Campaign

You'll likely naturally get this following the score guide for this mission in the very first area of the level. But if you're just not stealthy, play on easy and run around enemies and knife them. There is tons of enemies you can knife and you shouldn't have any problems with getting shot on Easy outside the first area where you'll need to be careful due to the high damage of the guard's shotguns.

A video example of how to easily get this trophy at the beginning of the level:

For tombstone
Let the Valkyrie be destroyed in the Campaign

To earn this ending trophy, just don't make a decision when hanging from the bridge on your grapnel. You can see the Valkyrie take more damage in the background until it eventually goes down.

For the people
Sacrifice Irish to save the Valkyrie in the Campaign

To earn this ending trophy, hand Irish the final brick of C4 and detonate it as soon as instructed.

For the cause
Sacrifice Hannah to save the Valkyrie in the Campaign

To earn this ending trophy, hand Hannah the C4 instead of Irish and detonate when instructed.

Patience is a virtue
Experience all 3 endings in the Campaign

Upon seeing your 3rd different ending, you'll unlock this trophy.

Above and beyond the call
Complete all Assignments in the Campaign

There is 3 assignments that will just naturally complete by playing the campaign. You will also need to Gold all the missions, which you will have done by earning the Score Trophies. Finally, by viewing all 3 endings, you will have fulfilled the requirements for this trophy.

Full arsenal
Unlock all assignments and collectibles in the Campaign

*GLITCH* This trophy has been reported to pop in well before it should have. If it does, congratulations. This trophy can also fail to pop in, and reloading a campaign mission after you're 100% sure the requirements have been met should cause it to pop in.

Collectibles are the biggest pain in the entire Single Player. Make sure you pick up any weapons enemies drop to cover those, and don't worry if the game doesn't say you've picked up a dogtag. As long as you're sure you've hit that prompt, it should count. There is 35 collectibles in total.

Lucky for us, Wozamil has created an extremely comprehensive video and text guide for the level specific dogtags and weapons.

The Video Guide can be found here:

As for all assignments, if you've earned Above and Beyond the Call following the rest of this guide, you've met that half of the requirements. This will likely be your final single player trophy.

Multiplayer Trophies:


Turn around...
Perform 5 dog tag kills in Multiplayer

This is easy enough. Depending on your personal controller setup, sneak up behind 5 enemies and melee them. This should come in natural play. Just avoid knifing from the front as the counter-knife window is ridiculous, and it's extremely frustrating to fail like that. Knifing does not provide invincibility frames for as long as Battlefield 3, so you can be shot mid-knife. You are only invincible during the motion of removing dogtags and can be killed instantly thereafter. Knifing is extremely loud and noticeable due to the amount of time it takes to perform as well, so don't expect to be able to sneak up behind a crowd and knife all of them.

If looking to boost this trophy, the easiest method is to find a relatively empty server (you will need at least 4 people in the server for it to start a round) and trade knives with a partner.

It does not matter which melee weapon you have equipped.

Won them all
Win a round of each game mode

*GLITCH WARNING* If this trophy doesn't ding when it's supposed to, replay matches in each mode from the start of the match until the finish.

Conquest:
Your standard Battlefield game mode. Large maps, and your team must control the majority of flags to bleed enemy tickets. Work with your team to reduce the enemies tickets to 0 before your team. The best class for this is either Medic or Engineer. For the purposes of trophies, you'll probably only play this classic mode for the required win.

Rush:
Another Battlefield staple. An attacking team and a defending team are pit against each other over MCOM stations. The attacking team must destroy all stations before their tickets are bled to 0. This mode is faster paced than Conquest, but is also more prone to heavily fortified campers. If you're a good player, your Score Per Minute can skyrocket here, however, if you're in this for trophies, find a good team that looks like they can win, support them as best you can, get your win, and get out. Any class can succeed on this mode.

Team Deathmatch:
Standard Team Deathmatch mode. Kill and don't be killed. First team to 100 wins. If you're a good player, this is the one mode you can likely carry your entire team in. Otherwise, hope your team can hold together long enough to squeak in a win. Medic dominates this mode.

Squad Deathmatch:
5v5v5v5 death match. I'll be the first to say this mode is a complete mess with it's layouts and spawns. Always play medic on this mode. Stick with your squad, revive whenever possible, and you should manage a win soon enough.

Obliteration:
Another mess of a mode with terrible layouts and spawns. Two teams fight over a central bomb to plant and destroy 3 enemy objectives. Sadly, you'll be spending most of your time here for another trophy. You'll need a really good team to defend you otherwise you'll be slaughtered. You'll need Medics and Engineers galore to manage vehicles and people. Supports won't be needed for ammo since life expectancy on this mode is less than 10 seconds. More tips for this mode will be detailed below. Just know that if you're good at shooters, your Score Per Minute can be made ridiculous here.

Defuse:
Search and Destroy ala CoD. An attacking team and a defending team with no respawns. No one ever plays the objective just like CoD, so it's really just elimination. You'll need to be present for both Round 1 and Round 2 to avoid possibility of this mode glitching the trophy, each round composed of 3 attempts to attack per team followed by an end of round screen. If you've got a suppressed gun, use it here, otherwise, try to join this mode on Flood Zone. Flood Zone is laid out terribly, and about 10 steps past either sides spawn you will see the other enemies. Matches rarely last more than a minute.

Domination:
Conquest Mini. It's extremely fast paced, and is your best friend for racking up lots of points, really fast. Even if just capturing flags, your SPM will be extremely high, even better if you can kill like a professional. After finishing Bomb squad spend the remainder of your multiplayer time here.

.45 old school
Perform 45 kills with the M1911 Handgun in Multiplayer

You will need 34,000 points with handguns to unlock the M1911 in multiplayer. All pistol score will count. Kills with handguns, assists, etc. The process can be sped up utilizing the XP boosters provided by Battlepacks. The Shorty 12G Shotgun unlocked from the Pistol unlock tree might seem tempting to use to work on unlocks, well sorry, this amazing little beast counts for shotgun score once unlocked. Weapon tips will be detailed below. Once you have the M1911, use it for 45 kills and this trophy is yours.

Bomb squad
Deliver 5 bombs in Obliteration

By far the most difficult multiplayer trophy. You will need to plant and destroy the bomb in Obliteration 5 times. This is cumulative across all plays, so you can work on this at any pace. You will need an excellent team to defend you and your planted charge. This mode is a complete cluster****, so expect a lot of frustration. There is only 3 enemy objectives per match, so it is tight competition to get those plants. There is also about a 45 second delay between new bomb spawns. Bomb spawns will always be somewhere in the middle of the two bases, typically somewhere close to where the parachute option is on the spawn map. If you die in the water or in the air with the bomb it will have to respawn, this is a good way to force a reset if you've gotten the bomb and can't get away from the enemies but can at least jump in the water.

Vehicles dominate this mode, so get a good tank crew running, or have a pilot on stand by to sweep you away in a helicopter. The more distance you can keep on the enemies, the better. Carrying the bomb makes you instantly die from any explosive damage, and a larger target. You will always been visible when carrying the bomb as well.

Community opinion leans on Golmud Railway being the best map to get plants.

Call me "Sir"
Reach rank 25.

Self-explanatory, reach Rank 25. An average player should reach this in about 25-30 hours of multiplayer time if exclusively playing high score per minute modes. Advanced players can reach this faster, and this is where the skill related estimate on time really comes into play. The process can be sped up via XP boosters from Battlepacks. You will have 2 gold battlepacks available to you on this road, meaning two chances to get 100% XP boosters. Otherwise, Bronze Packs earned every even level frequently hand out 25% boosters. Only 1 booster can be active at a time. Boosters are activated in a match via the pause menu and hitting to select your booster.

It takes about 796,000 points total to hit Rank 25.

Multiplayer Tips:


Maximizing Score Per Minute: Score Per Minute is what really matters for reaching Rank 25. The kit that provides this is the Assault Class or better known as Medic. For quickly earning trophies, you will want to make sure you've unlocked the QBZ-95 Assault Rifle from the campaign. Utilize this assault rifle to unlock the defibrillators, which you should use to replace your M320. Once you start unlocking other assault rifles like the M416, AEK-971 or FAMAS, experiment with them. The AEK and FAMAS will be superior for close range comabt, while the 416 is very universal. Always, always keep throwing medpack at allies, and revive when possible. Charging your defib paddles will revive your allies with more health and give you more points. 20 points is the default, while about 3 seconds of charging will should net you the full 100 points.

Your loadout should look like or similar to this:
Assault Class:
Primary: QBZ, attachments irrelevant
Secondary: Default Pistol
Gadget 1: Medpack
Gadget 2: M320 (replaced by Defibrillator as soon as possible)

Score Per Minute is maximized by playing high pace modes such as Domination. Domination is much more manageable for average or otherwise low-level players than Obliteration since you can just run flags to capture. If you're skilled enough, Obliteration also has extremely high Score Per Minute matches that can last indefinitely.

If utilizing Engineer for anti-vehicle or play or to utilize and maintain vehicles. You'll want the P90 unlocked via a campaign ending. It is significantly better than the other PDWs. Once you unlock the AK-5C Carbine via Engineer, it might be better suited to some players. Otherwise, the P90 is the best PDW unlocked for quite a while. A launcher and a repair torch is always recommended for Engineers, but thats up to play style. Just know the RPG unlocked relatively early does significantly more damage than the default LAW and if you can get over not having the auto lock on power, the RPG is the best launcher to carry period.

Weapon Tips:
All classes have an early weapon that outshines the other that you should start with over the other choices. Assault should start with the QBZ from the campaign ending. Engineer with the P90 from the campaign ending, Support with the U-100, Recon with the default Sniper Rifle. Recon should be avoided if looking to maximize Score Per Minute since it's not a fast moving class. Otherwise, try to use your pistol as much as possible as Recon.

Your handgun should be the default handgun at first. The REX from campaign might seem good, but it's damage at range and accuracy is poor with a low fire rate. It's a good secondary for getting in a panicking shot, but when trying to build pistol points rapidly, you'll need the high magazine and fire rate of the default pistol to act as a primary weapon. Utilize the Default pistol until you unlock the MP443, which is the next pistol to have a decent enough step up in performance to consider abandoning the attachments you'll unlock for your default. From there, you should be set to work towards the M1911. Do not use the Shorty 12G Sidearm Shotgun, as its points count for the shotgun tree and not pistols.

The FN57 and G18 pistols earned just before the M1911 are also excellent for cleaning up that last few thousand points. The FN57 has reduced damage, but a 20+1 round magazine. If your aim is good, it can clear entire squads with headshots with ammo to spare. If using the G18, you'll be forced to play Support to resupply yourself. It kills like no other with its high automatic fire rate, but it carries next to no ammo.

Warning:
Try and avoid the support class as much as possible. A lot of freezing issues consistently involve playing as support. DICE has yet to respond to these concerns, so to avoid frustration, avoid the class. Supposedly this glitch has to do with the Defensive Field Upgrades. Meaning that if you can stomach the risk of freezing long enough to unlock the Offensive Field Upgrades, running those in lieu of Defensive should make Support safe to play.

Very nice looking guide! For the war turtle trophy you can get a RPG right after you take control of the tank for the first time. Just destroy the barrier , drive up just past the 2 tanks in the road and the box will be right there where you turn right . You can almost have 15 kills before reaching the parking garage. I just abandoned the tank and went on foot.

Thanks, I'll add that detail in.

Cluster**** is an understatement. I wanna try and experience it on all maps since I'd like to have a map guide for suggestion on whats easiest. But I think the maps in BF4 are balanced in such a way that there isn't going to be "that one" map you can go do all the trophies on like BF3.
