Airburst Bf4 Assignment List

Assignment 7 -Mother Of All Bombs

Prerequisite - Safe Raiding

On the China Rising Maps there is a trailer that will show a plane on it from time to time, normally near location “C” on PS3 and "D" on PS4 in conquest matches. When it shows this plane, approach the trailer from the side with the stairs and hit when prompted to enter the trailer.

Now in the bomber find some targets to kill. To release the JADM, find your target(s) and use to release the weapon. It does take a few moments to get there, so lead your target if it is moving.

I found this very difficult to get kills as I got many hits, but no kills (Normal Mode), so I found another way to accomplish the requirement. The trick to this is to set some mines around before you head for the plane. As long as you are in the bombing run when they kill someone you will be given credit for achieving this.

Another strategy here is to bomb the trailer you enter for the bomber. Many times enemies will be waiting for you to come out and make themselves an easy target. Just be careful, if you are in hardcore you can kill teammates or yourself if you leave the trailer before the bombs hit.

After playing more and more hours, here is another strategy. When you get in the bomber let your first 3 missiles fly right away in the direction of where you think the enemy is. In the mean time start taping your "Spot" button and listen for the audible telltale of where the enemies are. If you let your missiles go early enough you will reload before fully crossing the map and get off another 3 shots on the same bomber pass

You also need to destroy an enemy bomber as well, this can be done with any weapon you are comfortable shooting a plane down with. I personally prefer using the Mobile AA with Missiles.

Reward - Cruise Missile

Assignment 8 - Multi Talent

You need to have your classes ready so you can swap between kits as needed. I would recommend doing this in rush or conquest. In a single round you need to get a kill with a sniper rifle, assault rifle, LMG, and a hand grenade.

Now here it the pain, it is a single round! This does not need to be done on a China Rising Map, it can be any map or any mode. If you are a rush defender they come to you and if you lose your life, ohh well. This is a personal choice one, you have to do it with the weapons and mode you are comfortable in.

I started with the grenade as it is the hardest one for me to get.

Reward - MTAR-21

Assignment 9 - I'm Dynamite

Prerequisite - Eyes in the Sky

Here come those pesky bombers again. To earn this you will need to earn the Bomber Delivery ribbon 3 times, get 20 UCAV kills and score a multi-kill.

To get your bomber ribbon, the best map appears to be silk road as there are a lot of tanks to kill and give you an opportunity to kill 2 for 1. It takes 2 missiles to kill a tank in hardcore. A lot of players try to come to the middle base in the map where the bomber trailer is, so you may want to spam that area when you get the bomber and then give it a chance to reload. The other maps are a little harder to get multiple kills in a game, but once you get the cruise missile (15 bomb kills) you will also have another weapon available to you by hitting

If you are going to boost this, get 3-4 players on the other team to take a LAV or helicopter to a per-defined spot on the map and hit them hard with the bombs and you can cut down on the time for this.

There are mixed emotions on the UCAV as it is very overpowered at this time (Since Patched). You can either fly it directly into people or use the remote detonation function and frag people with it. With the frag mode you will have an easier time killing people in hardcore.

Here is a video from M-Easy on the UCAV:

December 18th, 2013 - DICE Update
"Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for "road killing" opponents."

Reward - Air Burst

Assignment 10 - Middle King

Prerequisite - Safe Raiding

Nothing Major to this one, just play China Rising Maps for 10 hours, get 5 five kill streaks, and roadkill someone with the SUAV. To complete this you must get a kill with the bomber, so see Death From Above first. This will be available to complete once you complete the assignment “Safe Raiding”.

If you are going for all the trophies you will have to get a kill with the SUAV Mini Kamikaze. To get your kill with the SUAV I would recommend that you get your kill in hardcore as this will be a Road kill and in normal servers you will have a harder time killing someone with it. This weapon is available to the recon soldier.

Water-themed expansion Naval Strike is now available to Battlefield gamers across all platforms, bringing another dash of high-octane action on four all new multiplayer maps. Along with the new playgrounds come the familiar assignments bundled with, offering either a nifty dogtag or weapon as an award for completion.

Some might be straight forward tasks that will have you asking for more, while others take time and effort to complete. Let’s be honest we all want to same thing, so why not check out our walkthrough of all assignments featured in Naval Strike.

Swiss Cheese


  • Three Light Machine Gun ribbons
  • Destroy three vehicles as Support class


The Swiss Cheese assignment won’t cause you too much pain, but for those who haven’t unlocked the firepower needed it can be frustrating. You’ll come across LMG ribbons from playing the game normally, so most of your concentration will go on destroying three vehicles. Having C4 will make your job a lot easier, but if you haven’t unlocked it yet then you can turn to the airburst launcher. While the launcher is ineffective against tanks and other heavily armored vehicles, it can heavily damage quads, rhibs and other small vehicles.

Spawn beacons and T.U.G.S also count as vehicles, so take them down quick if you come across them.

Giant Slayer


  • Reach Rank 10
  • Win 20 Rounds of Carrier Assault


If you’re new to Battlefield 4 then you’ll need to reach rank 10 to complete this assignment. The Carrier Assault game mode is a joy to play and easy to win if you launch with a good team, so the Giant Slayer assignment is probably the easiest of the lot.

Scourge of the Sea


  • 10 Hours on Naval Strike
  • 1 Kills with AA Mine


  • Scourge of the Sea Dog Tag

I hope you enjoy the maps that Naval Strike have on tap as this assignment asked for 10 hours played on the DLC. The other half asks for one kill with the AA Mine which isn’t as easy as you may think. The gadget cannot be picked up after being placed so take care when deploying. Having the AA Mine near an aircraft deployment will also increase your chances of getting a kill.

Death from Below


  • 3 PDW Ribbons
  • Destroy 5 Attack Air Vehicles with Rocket Launchers


While getting three PDW ribbons is a piece if cake, taking down enemy aircrafts certainly isn’t.

Attack air vehicles include Scout Helicopters, Attack Helicopters, Attack Jets and Stealth Jets and you’ll come across plenty on the battlefield. Many have asked if anti-aircraft launchers will add to the tally and they do thankfully, so loadout with that Stinger or IGLA and you’ll have the AA Mine in no time.

Multi Tool


  • 10 Kills with Underslung Grenade Launcher Dart
  • 10 Kills with Underslung Grenade Launcher LVG


Personally my favorite assignment available as it asks for destruction and rewards you with the same. Don’t have to go into much details with this one, just aim your launchers into a good crowd of enemies and let it go to work.

Playing on maps like Silk Road, Dragon’s Pass and other mostly open maps will make your job harder, so use the power of server browser to pick maps with narrow halls and tunnels, allowing for solid impact. Operation Metro would be a good start.

Curve Ball



Getting your mitts on baseball fans we’ve got some throwing to do. Let’s be honest, the RGO Impact isn’t the go to grenade, as it has very low damage to balance the fact it detonates immediately on impact. Persistence is key, eventually you’ll grind out kills from hitting already hurt enemies and playing on narrow maps like I mentioned above.

Always Deadly


  • Sniper Rifle Ribbons
  • 5 C4 Kills on Naval Strike Maps


Thankfully sniper rifles and C4 go hand-in-hand with the Recon setup so switching class wont be a problem. If you are having trouble sniping from a distance then simply change the sight attachments to something small and get up close and personal. Getting the C4 kills on Naval Strike is self-explanatory, get close to boats or cornered enemies and let them have it.

Packing A Punch



Thankfully Naval Strike has an abundance of naval vehicles, from attack boats to hovercrafts( Yes I said hovercrafts), so no excuses if you don’t come across any while playing. There’s many ways of approaching this and really comes down to your style of play. If you enjoy using attack boats and hunting your enemies then go for it, even getting someone to tag along and mark targets for you and simply whip out the Javelin… The world is your oyster and yes I’m aware I referenced a sea creature.

Spare Time Sniper


  • 3 Assault Rifle Ribbons
  • 20 Headshots with Assault Rifles


Assault rifle aficionados rejoice as luck shines upon you this day. This assignment requires only your best marksmanship on the battlefield and notching up those headshots. Play as normal and you’ll be done before you know it.

Titans of Steel


  • Destroy an Objective in Carrier Assault


I don’t know about you guys but the minute I purchased Naval Strike I hopped straight into the new Carrier Assault game mode and instantly began to enjoy the new challenge. If you haven’t a clue how the mode works then follow the link right here to spruce up… We’ll wait…

Ok your back! Now that you have an idea how the destructible objectives work in Carrier Assault, then you know there is a waiting period until the doors open on the enemy carrier. We suggest hugging the door until it opens, then wasting no time arming the M-COM station not far from the door. Be wary though, tactically minded players will be waiting for you on the other side fully loaded.

Phantom Trainee


Premium members only

  • 200 Kills with Pistols
  • 20 Kills with Jets
  • 2 Shotgun Ribbons in a Round


Unfortunately you need to be a Premium member to complete this assignment and it’s quite an unorthodox one at that.

The first task is to complete the requirements above. For the pistols and shotgun ribbons(shotty not included) I suggest playing domination or obliteration, where you come across enemies more frequently. The jet requirement can be completed with a good session of Air Superiority.

This is where it gets weird! After completing the tasks you will need to head over to Battlelog and go to leaderboards and click the bottom left of the page. Once all the text populates, type in “epic dream worlds”(without the quotes) and watch as the screen fills with more text. Congrats you have successfully unlocked the Phantom Trainee assignment.


Hopefully this guide gets you on the way to unlocking all those killer weapons that shipped out with Naval Strike. With more expansions to release for Battlefield 4 we can expect more assignments, which of course us at LzyGmrs will be all over it.
