Bf3 How To Get M1911 S-Tac Assignment Discovery

This tutorial will teach you how to obtain the M1911 pistol with a flashlight and a suppressor both equipped in Battlefield 3; in my opinion, one of the best secondary weapons in the game. (This guide is assuming you have brought or ‘obtained’ the Endgame DLC or Premium. Without the Endgame DLC, the assignments to unlock this weapon stay hidden.)

Unlocking the M1911 S-TAC pistol in Battlefield 3 can be quite confusing, mainly because there is one assignment to obtain the M1911, and four other dog-tag assignments that lead up to it. Don’t bother going for the assignments before unlocking them: they won’t count. Each of the assignments apart from the last all unlock dog tags that can be equipped! The assignments, with a small guide on each one, are:

THe M1911 S-TAC has both a suppressor and a flashlight, making it the only pistol to have both

Scar Spangled Banner

–          Win a game of capture the flag

–          Capture 2 flags

–          Get 5 flag returns

–          Unlocks Scar Spangled Banner dog tag

Pretty simple, just join a few capture the flag games and play the objective. To capture a flag, get the enemy flag to your base, and to get a return, kill an enemy that has your flag and capture it like you would a territory in conquest. This shouldn’t take too long and is not much of a challenge unless you do not understand the game mode or do not play the objective.

Defender of the earth

–          Destroy 5 air vehicles in the anti-air jeeps

–          Unlocks ‘fly swatter’ dog tag

Spend a few minutes/hours staring in the sky with the AA jeeps and you should get this one fine. Just make sure you destroy the air vehicles: it doesn’t matter whether you get the kill or not, just make sure the vehicle cannot be repaired and you get the XP for destroying it. You can only use missiles and weaponry on the jeep in the second seat, so make sure you get there. It would help to not join a squad, so teammates don’t steal seat 2 / start driving around and ruining your aim. Also, in the AA jeeps, as well as heatseekers they also have rocket pods which, at the time of writing, are pretty powerful. Just press triangle and the crosshairs should change.

Fatal Drop

–          Get one infantry kill with an airdropped IFV

–          Destroy transport vehicle kill with an airdropped IFV

–          Destroy one IFV with an airdropped IFV

–          Unlocks ‘look up’ dog tag

This one can be a real pain if you are weak in ground vehicles or  the enemy IFV is not being used. The easiest way to get this is to capture the territory that gets your team the dropship (usually somewhere in the middle of the map, has a symbol next to it) and wait for a while to spawn in the ‘paradrop IFV’. It does not matter if the IFV is a LAV or a BMP, they both count. Make sure you get there quickly, so nobody else has a chance to get in the driver’s seat, which is the only one that can destroy other IFVs. Now you get a pretty awesome animation of you parachuting down in a light tank. Just play as you normally would when you land, but make sure you always make the most of enemy IFVs when they come, or you see them on your radar, and make sure they get destroyed. It is possible to spawn camp the enemy and just shoot their LAV when somebody gets in it, but staying still makes you an easy target for just about anything so I like to keep moving. Having a maxed out IFV with upgrades helps a lot. This one can by irritating and frustrating, but shouldn’t be too bad if you are handy in an IFV.

This assignment unlocks:

–          Destroy 20 vehicles

–          Get one dirt bike roadkill

–          Unlocks ‘road warrior’ dog tag

The roadkill may look scary, but it’s easier than it sounds from my experience: I got a triple kill with roadkills while going through this one. I just drove around in capture the flag, watching out for mines and driving full pelt at infantry when I saw them. Destroying 20 vehicles is very easy; I found the quickest way to be to launch up an Air Superiority game, as every kill you can get has to be a destroy. If you are weak in jets or just can’t stand the mode, I guess you could just continue playing as you normally would, maybe with extra use of mines and C4.

All about Precision

–          Get 20 headshots with pistols

–          Unlocks S-TAC dog tag and M91 S-TAC pistol

This is the last assignment, and it unlocks the M191 S-TAC. It is also very easy, which is nice: just start a TDM and aim for the head with any pistol you wish. I got it in one game. Once the assignment is completed, check your secondary list. The M1911 S-TAC should be there! This one unlocks a pretty nice dog tag too, like he others.

Please comment, reblog or whatever it is you people do if this helped you in any way or if you have any questions. Good luck on the Battlefield!
