- Suppression Ribbon:
External image

In a round, receive 4 suppression assist. The easiest way to do this is to have someone that your playing with. I did it with the sniper as it seems to work the best. We layed in the small tunnel area on Operation Metro and he killed people with the saw and I just sniped near them.

In a round, get 5 headshots. Find the gun your comfortable with and go with it. Does not have to be done in one life.

- Ace Squad ribbon:
External image

Be apart of the best squad. You have to do objective based things or work as a squad. This is not calculated by the most points like in previous games. I have been 2000 points ahead of the next squad and still not gotten the ribbon. Just resupply your buddies and revive them if they go down. This is also easy to get in Squad Rush.

- Flag Defender ribbon:
External image

In a round, get 5 flag defend kills. This has to be done in conquest. You need to kill someone why laying in the area with the objective that pops up on your screen. Capture an objectives and then just lay there and protect it. Best to do it on the middle objectives as they get captured the most.

- Flag attacker ribbon:
External image

In a round, get 4 flag captures. This has to be done in Conquest. You have to actually be the first one to the spot to start the capture and never leave. Capture assists do not count.

- Resupply Efficiency Ribbon:
External image

In a round, get 7 resupplies. (run around with the support class and throw supply kits in groups of people. Remember that if you have one out already and you throw one then your previous one disappears)

- Maintenance Efficiency Ribbon:
External image

In a round, get 7 repairs. This has to be done with the engineer class. Use your repair tool to repair tanks. Easiest done if your the driver and you have a gunner, so your still protected while repairing. Note that you always get out on the left side of the tank.

- M-COMM Defender Ribbon:
External image

In a round, defend 2 M-COMM stations. Has to be done in Rush. This one is tricky as you have kill someone that is PLANTING the bomb. I have found the best way to do this is to throw C4 on the M-COMM and stay near the OBJ and when you hear the beeping blow your C4.

- M-COMM Attacker Ribbon:
External image

In a round, blow up 2 M-COMM stations. Has to be done in Rush. Just Plant as many bombs as you can. The station HAS to be destroyed, AKA has to blow up.

External image

In a round, get 2 nemesis kills (Kill someone 5 times in a round and your their nemesis. Proceed to kill them 2 more times)

- Stationary Emplacement Ribbon:
External image

In a round, Kill 2 enemies with a mounted gun. This is probably one of the hardest ribbons, unless you get luck and get a tank with 2 people in it. I got this by just sitting in conquest firing rockets at the OBJs the whole time. Make sure you sit with a medic pack near you so that if snipers see you it's harder for them to kill you.

- Squad wipe ribbon:
External image

In a round, get 2 squad wipe bonus. You need to eliminate a squad. This doesn't have to be the same squad and it doesn't matter if it's just 1 person or all 4. It has to be the amount of people alive from that squad. Best done in SQDM or SQRush

- Air Warfare Ribbon:
External image

In a round kill 5 enemies with air vehicles. If you can figure out how to fly the heli this is the easiest. If not try to spawn as the gunner. Just sit where the heli spawns and wait till someone gets in it. If your a Pro pilot on the jet you can net this too.

- Transport Warfare ribbon:
External image

In a round, kill 4 enemies with a transport vehicles. These include: AAV-7A1 / Amphibious Assault Vehicle, RHIB Boat, VDV Buggy, Growler ITV, Vodnik, Humvee. Do not underestimate the armor of the APC. I have been able to kill tanks before they kill me before.

- Armored Warfare ribbon:
External image

In a round, kill 7 enemies with land vehicles. While going for the Transport Warfare ribbon you can get this, but it's easiest done in a tank. Just sit near an OBJ if your not good at driving around and killing.

- Anti-Explosive Ribbon:
External image

In a round, destroy 3 enemy explosives. I've gotten a few of these by just shooting into buildings with a tank or heli.

- Squad Spawn Ribbon:
External image

In a round, get 7 squad spawn bonuses. If your in a squad of 4 then you'll net this one pretty easy. If you have a buddy your playing with just tell him to spawn on you. It doesn't matter if all of your mates spawn on you or 1 does it 7 times.

External image

In a round, get 3 streak bonuses. You need to get 8 kills without dieing to net one of these. The more kills you get without dieing the faster these will come.
