    The achievement really isn't that hard to obtain and will most likely come naturally. You must come in 3rd place overall in a ranked match. (Which means, the 3rd highest scoring player of both teams combined). For those that are having trouble. I recommend you play Squad Rush as it is a 4 on 4 game mode. Effectively increasing your chances of getting it.

    Some recommendations:
    Always be in a full squad.
    Play as 'Assault' class and be sure to unlock the Defibrillator
    Revive team members whenever possible for easy pts.
    +100pts Team Member revive
    +110pts Squad Member revive
    Always throw Medkits in high traffic areas for healing pts
    +20pts Team Member heal
    +30pts Squad Member heal
    If attacking, destroy as many objectives as you can in the match. M-COM stations can be worth up to 600pts each.
    Keep checking the scoreboard to see where you stand.

    Good luck

    FallenLegateThis achievement is driving me insane! I keep getting either MVP or 2nd MVP or 4th/5th place everytime heh. I should broaden out to rush instead of only playing conquest then heh.

    Dark4ssassin95I just got in third place overall and I didn't get the achievement or ribbon.
    Has this happened to anyone else

    CASS190684Bugged? Got third overall but no achievement or ribbon. Does your team have to also win or something?

    AC1DGro0ve 3o3It does appear to be somewhat bugged. I suggest playing Squad Rush. Many others have had better luck unlocking this in that game type.

    Dread ReaverWhen you play a quick match, does that count as ranked? I came third overall in a quick match, but nothing...

    AC1DGro0ve 3o3I put this up prior to 'rent-a-servers' being introduced ....and I'm not 100% sure, but it may only be obtainable on DICE's dedicated servers. (because it does say 'Ranked'). If this is the case, then using quick match is probably not a good idea. The game will throw you in whatever match is available, dedicated server or not. Although, many people still had trouble unlocking this, way before rent-a-servers. It's definitely a buggy achievement. My suggestion is to browse for a Squad Rush match on a dedicated server. You should be fine then. I got it to unlock this way and so did a few people I know. Hope that helps. If so, please come back and let us know. Thanks.
