Trophy Guide, Roadmap, and Assignment Guide by Alpha_Cookie


Close Quarters is the second DLC pack for DICE’s hit shooter Battlefield 3. This time, DICE is bringing the Battlefield in doors for some up close and personal combat. Like Back to Karkand, we see the arrival of 10 new weapons with Assignments to match. Also along for the ride are the new Conquest Domination and Gun Master game modes, adding a bit more variety to the Battlefield. Even if this DLC isn’t your style, it’s still a great addition to the Battlefield.


-Estimated Trophy Difficulty: 2/10 (personal opinion)
-Offline: 0
-Online: 5 (3 , 2 )
-Approximate Time to Platinum: 5-10 hours depending on skill
-Minimum # of Playthroughs: n/a
-Missable Trophies: 0
-Glitched Trophies: 0
-Do cheats disable trophies?: No Cheats
-Does difficulty affect trophies: Depends on skill


Step 1: Assignments: Just focus on completing the assignments. Compared to Back to Karkand they are very easy, and won’t take that long playing on Close Quarters maps. Once you have all the weapons unlocked, just get 10 kills with each of them to earn “Show of Force.” Its possible during this phase you'll probably unlock a few other trophies too.

Step 2:Everything else: The trophies are pretty simple, and will likely come when doing the assignments. Just win a round of Conquest Domination for “Dominator”, get a kill with a Carbine (Engineer Weapon), RPG/SMAW, and Handgun without dying for “Deadly Tools,” complete a round of Gun Master for “Men of Calibre,” and finally walk off the edge of Ziba Tower for the hidden trophy “Over the edge.” Nothing should take too long to complete.

Trophy Guide:

Won a round of Conquest Domination

Very straight forward trophy. Just win a round of Conquest Domination on any of the supported maps and this is yours. Impossible to miss if your completing assignments for Show of Force. Capping flags is faster in this mode, so you'll always need to be on the move to make sure your team keeps the lead. If you feel your team is losing, switch teams immediately or quit out to find a new team. If you leave it to long to switch, you won't be able to because "the round is almost over."

Men of Calibre
Completed a round of Gun Master

Again, very straight forward. You only have to complete a round of Gun Master, not win. Shouldn’t be a problem for anyone.

Gun Master in Battlefield is similar to Gun Master from Counter Strike. You are on a team. The first person to move through all the tiers of weapons before finally getting the winning kill with their knife is the winner. Impossible to miss when completing assignments.

Grinding the Crack
Fall over the edge on Ziba Tower.

Funny trophy to obtain. You will need to jump off the roof of Ziba Tower.

Deadly Tools
Without dying, got a kill with a Carbine, Pistol and Rocket Launcher

Probably the most difficult trophy for some. You will need to get a kill streak with a Carbine (Engineer Weapon), Handgun, and RPG/SMAW in one life. My recommendation is to get the RPG/SMAW kill first as it is the hardest kill to obtain, especially versus infantry. You’ll be best off finding a good position to just get all 3 kills as fast as possible, but in all likelihood this will just come naturally playing as an Engineer.

Show of Force
Get 10 kills with all ten CQ weapons

Possible Glitch: If the trophy doesn't unlock when getting 10 kills with each of the guns, try getting 10 kills with the L86A2 in one round, and the trophy should pop.

For this trophy you’ll need to get 10 kills with each of the new weapons this DLC brings. An assignment guide is included below to make this as easy as possible. You do not actually have to unlock all the weapons. If you pick them up off dead bodies and get ten kills, that will also count. You can also get 10 kills with 9/10 of the weapons by playing Gun Master. Gun Master does not include the M5K so you will still need to unlock or pick that up for the kills.

Weapons Required:
Assault Class: AUG A3, SCAR-L
Engineer Class: ACW-R, MTAR-21
Support Class: L86A2, LSAT
Recon Class: M417, JNG-90
All Class: SPAS-12, M5K

Platforms: Switch, PS4, Wii U, PC, 3DS, Vita| Signature by ESYLD | Twitch | Youtube
PC Build - i5-4460, GTX 960, 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600

Assignment Guide:

Shepard- AUG A3
  • 10 Squad Revives
  • 30 Assault Rifle Kills

A very easy assignment, that shouldn’t take very long at all. Just pull out your favorite Assault Rifle and go to town. SQ Revives should come naturally. Just follow your squad mates around and revive them with your Defibrillator when they die. They will have green names. Many will complete this in one round.

Recommended Maps: Any infantry based map
Recommended Modes: Any

Set us up the bomb- SCAR-L (Must complete “Shepard” first)
  • 20 Kills with Underslung Grenade Launcher
  • 15 Kills with Hand Grenades

This one can be time consuming, but it isn’t hard. The best way to get Hand Grenade kills is positioning yourself somewhere enemies flood in as a Support. Drop yourself an ammo box and spam grenades. SQ Grenade perk should help here. The underslung refers to the Assault Class’s M320 launcher. The best way to use it is from medium range into a crowd. Shooting down the hallway of Conquest Flag B on Operation Metro is a prime location for this weapon. You can also use the default M320 to blow chunks off walls on maps like Seine Crossing and Grand Bazaar to kill people with the falling rubble. Any version of the M320 will count towards this assignment.

Recommended Maps: Any infantry based map
Recommended Modes: Any

No Shortage- L86A2
  • 20 Squad Resupplies
  • 20 Kills with Light Machine Guns

Getting the LMG kills shouldn't be difficult at all. Just use your favorite Support weapon to do so. Squad Resupplies are also easy. Just follow around teammates with green names, and when they stop for a second or ask, drop an ammo box for them. On pretty much any game mode except TDM and Gun Master, these are extremely easy to get. Its possible some will get this in one round.

Recommended Maps: Any
Recommended Modes: Any

Point Blank- LSAT
  • 10 C4 Kills
  • 10 Knife Takedowns

Probably my favorite assignment. C4 is the default explosive charges for the Support class. Its very universal and can do anything. Take out vehicles, defend objectives by lining it with the stuff, booby trap MCOMS, anything. Find your own preferred way to use it, and enjoy the explosions! As for knifing, your best bet is to run around on tight maps and attempt to get behind the enemies. Try and kill as many as you can with your knife before they take you down. If possible, try to isolate players before knifing them so you don't get shot by someone in the stabbing animation.

Recommended Maps: Any
Recommended Modes: Any

Done Fixing- ACW-R
  • 20 AT Rocket Kills
  • 30 Kills with Carbines

Again, another easy assignment to complete. Just load up your favorite Engineer weapon and go to town. AT Rockets refer to your RPG or SMAW. Use those how you feel comfortable, either against vehicles or as an anti infantry weapon. You can also RPG walls on maps like Grand Bazaar and Seine Crossing. Collapsing the walls onto people will result in kills counted towards the weapon that caused them, such as your RPG.

Recommended Maps: Any
Recommended Modes: Any

My Own Terminator- MTAR-21 (Must complete “Done Fixing” first)
  • Get a kill with an EOD Bot
  • 100 Kills with Carbines

As up above, just go to town with your favorite Engineer weapon to meet that requirement. Getting a kill with an EOD Bot may sound tricky, but it shouldn’t prove too difficult. The easiest way is to use the torch on the EOD Bot although you can roadkill. If possible, find a camping sniper or something, and just drop it behind them to torch them, or wait until the enemy is distracted (or they’ll probably shoot your EOD Bot) and just have your little droid charge them. You can also disrepair vehicles to death with the EOD Bot.

Recommended Maps: Any
Recommended Modes: Any

Team Player- M417
  • 10 T-UGS Assists
  • 20 Flags Captured

This is another easy assignment. If you’d like to get this assignment done as fast as you possibly can, play Conquest Domination. Flag caps are quicker on this mode, and the maps are small enough for you to drop a T-UGS and get assists with minimal effort. (T-UGS is a Recon Spotting Gadget, replaces MAV/SOFLAM) This assignment shouldn’t be too hard.

Recommended Maps: Any
Recommended Modes: Conquest Domination, Conquest, Conquest Assault

Bullet Point- JNG-90 (Must complete “Team Player” first)
  • 50 Sniper Rifle Kills
  • Win 3 rounds of Conquest Domination

Just pick your favorite Sniper Rifle and go to town. The SKS works particularly well. Winning 3 rounds of Conquest Domination is pretty straight forward. Just help out your team, hope they do the same, and the assignment should be completed pretty fast.

Recommended Maps: Any
Recommended Modes: Conquest Domination

These hurt too- SPAS-12
  • 20 Pistol Kills
  • 20 Shotgun Kills

Extremely straight forward assignment. Take your favorite shotgun and pistol combo and start killing the enemies. Its likely you’ll get this in one or two rounds if your playing infantry maps, especially with increased tickets.

Recommended Maps: Any infantry map
Recommended Modes: Any

Hold the Trigger- M5K (Must complete “These hurt too” first)
  • Finish in the Top 5 of Gun Master
  • 100 SMG Kills

This is again straight forward. When the assignment says “SMG” it refers to PDWs such as the P90 and UMP-45. To finish in the Top 5 of Gun Master, you’ll need to place #5 or better overall. Not just your own team. The mode will be easier the more you play as you get better with the weapons, and the assignment should come naturally.

Recommended Maps: Any infantry based maps
Recommended Modes: Gun Master, Any infantry focused modes

Battlefield 3 Co-op servers
Sadly, the BF3 Co-op servers sometimes are really really bad, and sometimes they're good. Although, if you encounter any connection problems here are some tips:
  1. if the "LOADING" text freezes then simply restart your PS3, try changing hosts or trying different missions until you finally get into the game.
  2. Hosts really affect the connection very much, for example. If you live in the USA and you're playing with someone who's in Egypt for example, chances are the host will be doing fine and the other guy will lag ALOT.
  3. If the "LOADING" text simply goes on for a minute without showing you the wallpaper of the mission then simply either quit the game or restart your PS3. If it does you show the mission's wallpaper but still loads for longer than a minute then also either quit the game or restart your PS3.
  4. If the problem proceeds then try loading up the 2nd co-op mission "Fire from the sky", as for some weird reason it usually works

Not on my watch
Protected Chaffin from the soldiers in the street in Operation Swordbreaker
In the 2nd mission "Operation Swordbreaker" you will need to protect "Chaffin" from the soldiers shooting from the roofs and on the street. You'll have to be a bit fast as Chaffin might get hit if you don't kill the enemies in time which will lead into not getting this trophy. Just watch the video carefully and you'll know where the enemy spawns are at.

In the 3rd mission "Uprising", when you've kicked the car for achieving Roadkill. after doing that just progress and then you'll find an orange bus in front of you. Now you'll have to kill the 2 enemies from afar while facing exactly forward from the bus door. Luckily, the 2 enemies have their flashlights on so just shoot at the 2 flashlights and then the trophy will be yours. If you don't get what place and position i'm talking about then watch the video below, and you can also rewind the checkpoint if you mess up.

Involuntary Euthanasia Video Guide

The Professional
Completed the street chase in Comrades in under 2 minutes 30 seconds without dying
This one literally is semi-impossible to do on hard difficulty, so play the mission ''Comrades'' on easy and just take cover behind the cars and pick off the enemies one by one, also try and keep moving as fast as you can. The trophy unlocks after Vladimir (the Russian guy who gets shot by an rpg) dies.
This trophy will pop up once you finish the 6th mission "Comrades".
This trophy will pop up once you finish the 5th mission "Operation Guillotine".
This trophy will pop up once you finish the 2nd mission "Operation Swordbreaker".
This trophy will pop up once you finish the 7th mission "Night Shift".
In the 7th mission "Night Shift" you'll be ordered to shoot out the 4 lights for your squad mates to proceed. This one can be really hard since the 4 lights move and there's not a single place to shoot at, so be sure to press  to hold your breath so you can be more accurate with your shots. You can also rewind the checkpoint if you missed a bullet. If you're still having trouble then take a look at the video below.

Army of Darkness Video Guide

As you progress your way through the 11th mission "Kaffarov" you will find yourself in a gun range. There are 14 targets in this gun range which you'll have to headshot. The last one is timed as it will go up and then go down, so make sure you headshot it fast.

Practice Makes Perfect Video Guide

Once you start the 10th mission "A Rock And A Hard Place", you'll be ambushed by Russian paratroopers, simply knife one of the enemies from behind/right/left (provided that a knife animation occurred). Doing this on hard is very tricky so don't waste your time and do it on easy difficulty.

NOTE: If a knife animation didn't occur then the trophy will not pop up.

Kicked the car and killed the soldiers in Uprising
In the 3rd mission "Uprising", a little while after you've killed the rat with your knife and killed the soldier for getting your weapon, you'll see an ammo box. Near the ammo box is a car that you can kick to kill 2 soldiers, just simply face the car and tap  until the car falls and the trophy will pop up. If it isn't clear where the location is then take a look at this video.

Roadkill Video Guide

Credit goes to PowerPyx for the video.
The trophy information doesn't really explain you what you should do, basically you must destroy every enemy jet by using heat-seekers only and every missile you shoot should kill an enemy jet. And you MUST counter all hostile heat-seeker missiles by dumping your flares.This trophy makes this mission pretty tedious, in the beginning there is an unskippable cutscene which takes a long time. So it's recommended to take breaks or attempt other trophies if it's getting on your nerve. You can also listen to music while attempting this trophy.Enemy jets use IR Flares to counter the missiles you shoot, so if you shoot a missile at a jet and the jet counters your missile you'll fail your attempt at the trophy. There are 7 jets in total that you need to destroy, simply watch the video below and you'll know which jets you should go for first and so on. You can also use the table made below.Seconds between each shot:
  • Opening your Heatseeker System-1st Shot: 16 Seconds
  • 1st Shot-2nd Shot: 6 Seconds
  • 2nd Shot-3rd Shot: 37 Seconds
  • 3rd Shot-4th Shot: 60 Seconds
  • 4th Shot-5th Shot: 5 Seconds
  • 5th Shot-6th Shot: 96 Seconds
  • 6th Shot-7th Shot (Last Shot): 37 Seconds
Fire Heatseeker missile:
Dump Flares: NOTE: If you restart a checkpoint and do it again it won't count so this must be done in 1 attempt. Remember it's 1 SHOT PER 1 JET! And use the countermeasures ("Flares") when an enemy jet is locking on to you! Because getting hit by a heat-seeker will result into a fail, using your countermeasures when you're not getting locked on will also result into a fail.

You can be my wingman anytime Video Guide

This trophy will pop up once you finish the 11th mission "Kaffarov".
Took down the jet in one attempt in Rock And A Hard Place
This trophy can be a pain for some people. What you need to do is reach the primary objective (grabbing the stinger and shooting the hostile Russian jet), but without dying or without failing by doing something stupid in the mission (friendly firing at your squad-mates for example). You can have a backup save of the mission in case you fail and you don't wanna do the whole mission again as this section is at the very end of the mission.

Note: Restarting the checkpoint and doing it right won't unlock the trophy as this must be done in 1 run.

Took down 2 enemies with 1 bullet in Night Shift
Once you meet up with Campo on top of a building you'll be ordered to snipe 2 guys, simply shoot from the front and the bullet will pass through the other guy resulting in a double kill with one bullet. 
This trophy will pop up once you finish the 1st mission "Semper Fidelis".
Completed the campaign story
This trophy will pop up once you finish the campaign on any difficulty. See Semper Fidelis for more information.
This event takes place at the very end of the story, It's kinda like the "final boss fight". All you have to do is press all the buttons at the right timing and the trophy will pop once the final cut-scene of the game begins. If you mess up the first time then you can restart the checkpoint.

The buttons you need to press (in order) are:

For this trophy you'll have to finish the campaign on the hard difficulty. For some non-experienced players this can seem daunting at first but it's really easy if you know what you're doing. 
Here are some tips that can help you:
  1. Enemieshurt! This means you can't just run in the open. Enemies tend to do a lot more damage than in easy and normal difficulties.
  2. Try to know the names of the guns you feel comfortable playing with so you can pick them up again when you see them anywhere.
  3. Always take cover near corners, boxes or anything you find in your environment.
  4. Use grenades as they're very effective in this game the same can be applied with the grenade launchers.
  5. Spotting is very useful on hard difficulty, aim at an enemy and then press  to spot him.
If you're struggling in certain places in some missions then refer to this IGN walkthrough.FIRST NOTE: Playing on hard means there's no aim assist. Enemies will do significantly more damage and enemies will have a little bit more health.

SECOND NOTE: Finishing the last mission "The Great Destroyer" on hard and not doing the missions before on hard will not result in achieving this trophy. You must start the campaign on hard till the end.
Push On
Reached the garage without going into man-down state in Hit and Run
Very Rare
Important Note: The official trophy description is not very accurate. You and your teammate must reach the garage without getting downed, so both of you mustn't get downed once.

There's a bug which can occur with either you or your teammate, at some point you'll will have to be ready at the upper floor and your teammate on the lower floor (or the other way around). An enemy can show up glitching and passing through a wall and knifing either you or your partner.

So to avoid getting killed by that guy you'll need a powerful gun before entering and taking in position (It's recommend to use the AEK-971 which can be found on an ammo box right before the buggy part),  any shotgun can do the trick too. Once you and your buddy are in position, spam the  (fire) button so the enemy won't have a chance in killing any of you 2. Sometimes he will be far from the door which is supposed to happen in the first place, so just keep trying and don't give up!

Other than that it's quite easy while on easy difficulty, just make sure not to rush enemies and take cover.
Completed all co-op missions
This trophy will pop up once you finish all the co-op missions on any difficulty. If you want to know what co-op missions you haven't completed then invite your friend to the lobby and your score in the mission, if it doesn't show anything at a mission then it's not completed.
A very short grind, you'll most likely get this along the way by completing all the CO-OP missions on hard difficulty for Army of Two. You'll need 160,000 XP for the last weapon (G3A3). You can check your points progression when you either die or finish a mission by pressing . You can also check your progress on this website.

Note: If you restart a mission/choose another mission or quit your mission then your progress will NOT be saved. You either must die or finish the mission for the points to count.
Car Lover
Completed the mission without losing a humvee in Operation Exodus
This trophy can be obtained on the mission ''Operation Exodus'' on any difficulty. It's recommended to do this while playing on easy. Just simply kill the enemies you see. It's also recommended that one person takes the left side of the bridge and someone else the on the right side.

Your biggest threats are the RPG soldiers on top of the roofs and the BMP-2M vehicles approaching you, simply switch to your javelin by pressing
