    As all the other (unhelpful) suggestions mentioned, you need to play a lot as there is no way to glitch or easily get this. Here are some suggestions that usually result in me getting the most kills, in the least amount of time:

    1) Use tanks and turrets - don't go for creates, points, etc etc etc. Just use any heavy or light tank to rag on your enemy infantry. If you are using a tank, learn to juke out lazer guided missiles. (A good old run in a strait line, then reverse at the end works 85% of the time

    2) Typically don't snipe - You will have a nice kill/death ratio at the end, but you probably wont get more than 10 kills in a regularly match.

    3) [rather obvious] switch between classes as necessary. If your assault rifle is not working out for you, switch out. One kit doesn't work for all maps or situations.

    4) Avoid being 'tricky'. I often find myself wanting to craft a carefully set trap of c4 or landmines. Even if it works, I will have spent a lot of time for few kills. Go for the loud and noisy approach and just spray with a turret, you will probably get way more kills.

    5) Boosting - if you are gonna do it, the best way is for you to be a sniper, and all your friends on the other team to spawn off one of their squad mates and then get headshotted. But good luck doing this. If you have friends who are willing to do this for you for hours on end, you must be bribing them better than I do. ;-P

    6) If you find yourself on a map you generally do not do well on (or just don't get kills very fast on) just quit and find a different match, much better than struggling for 20 minutes with little to show for it.

    7) If you are going for this achievement, the find-all-five weapons will be useful:
    your3mynextt4rget Unlocks QBU88 Recon weapon
    try4ndrunf0rcov3r Unlocks the M60 Support weapon
    cov3r1ngthecorn3r Unlocks the Uzi Special Ops weapon
    aw3somef1rep0wer Unlocks USAS12 Demolition weapon
    [highly recommend this sniper]
    [there is no code for the assault rifle, it is a pain to get, you can try entering one of your previous battlefield games on EA's website... one way to get the assault rifle is to go play battlefield heros... it a free browser game]

    That is all for now, good luck and reply with any additional suggestions, tips or questions!

    Ok, so I finally got my achievement... If you are interested, here are my stats at time of completion... (as seen on my profile on

    External image

    The achievement pops right in the middle of the game, after you get the final kill.

    One final 'hint' that you can choose to use or not is the artillery glitch. it is a glitch that allows you to bypass the wait time for the artillery (you don't have to wait for the bar to fill up again before firing... very powerful glitch)
    - How to do the artillery glitch:
    - Fire artillery at the point you want
    - 3rd person view of your 5 shots being shot out
    as soon as this 3rd person bit ends, the camera switches to where the shots are about to hit, as soon as it switches to this view, hit 'b' to get out
    - Get back in, the shots will hit as normal, you just wont see them hit, and you can fire again immediately. (they still do all the normal damage as if you had watched the shells hit the ground)
    - If you get out too early or too late you miss the glitch, and you have to wait for the bar to refill...

    Beans Bullets Bandages Boosting strategy

    External image

    First off, I would like to say: when im boosting that is top priority, I have a laptop in front of me and a cellphone right next to that. If either of those slow down or make the session get less out of what is capable while boosting. Then I will not touch them.

    These other solutions are only based on doing it by playing the game which isn't the fastest. The other solutions are also head hurting, headache creating and time consuming. Get in a group that is always boosting this achievement at a good time late at night (Not too late but just to where there is no one really playing).

    This is not recommended during daytime, Friday nights, and definitely not Saturday nights.

    By Honorguy XNL: The times when randoms are almost not active? For that is between like 7 am and 2PM (times most sessions start/end) GMT+1 here but simply said. Early in the morning for Europe :)

    Step 1:Before the session starts

    Ideas from fellow BFBC boosters:

    Trivolt: Try not to use the word blue or red when describing anyone or anything, instead use the word Russian or American. This will help avoid confusion.(Thanks Trivolt!)

    Do not read below this line if you don't like math, I made this part to save time, if you don't care about saving 5-10+ hours overall of boosting don't read any further.

    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    I hope everyone understands what I am trying to say, I don't like losing time when I could be doing other things, but if you prevent this from happening you will save 10 or more hours boosting this achievement.
    Please everyone who reads this, don't take advantage of the simple way to boost this game, when you have the ability to spawn, SPAWN!

    Strategy OneNo problem, I respect anyone who asks for help as long as I am able to. Good luck!

    Living Legendsle one wolf, i have boosted bad company without rubberbanding the analog sticks. i tend to mash the a button while waiting to spawn. I tend to space the spawns so i can knife three secs and button smash a until the squad spawns. i would just be careful if you press any other button as it takes you to leaderboards or exit game etc. i quad boxed last night and got about 1200 kills in 4 games of acta non verba. that map has 150 tickets and its very small. also, doesnt have vehicles or tanks so if randoms get in they cant be annoying in the artillery.

    Back-to-back Knifing Boost Method w/ 4 accounts

    You won't need 8 accounts for this method. First of all it is difficult getting 8 individuals to agree on a specific time of day and then also stick around for this multiple weeks long endeavor. It is much easier with only 2 people, who each double-box. This way you are much more flexible time-wise.

    The first thing to know is that the Conquest servers idle when not used. Which means you will receive a 'cannot connect to server' message. (This was explained to me by a DICE employee). However, if you continuously try, the server will eventually open a lobby for you. On average it took us 20min; the longest we tried was 1h15min. But eventually it always works. The server, however, is much more responsive when more people submit requests. With 6 people you can get a lobby open in about 5min. So if you have extra dummies, then use all of them to start a lobby faster.

    This is how it's done with 4 accounts:
    Why only 4 account?
    We were 2 people, each with 2 accounts, which is the minimum to open a lobby. You can lock down a lobby with 8 people (see solutions above), which is helpful against randoms. But it is quite useless against some of the anti-boosters you will inevitably encounter. They will simply wait until you have to start a new round and prevent you from neutralizing all the flags and set up properly. Some of the worst anti-boosters will go out of their way to screw with you and occupy the server for hours on end
    With 4 accounts (especially if two of you are double-boxing), you are much more flexible time-wise and can out-wait most anti-boosters. Just wait 30min to 1h and they will most likely leave, at which point you can boost again. Having to coordinate between 8 boosters, it is very unlikely that all of you can reconvene at a later time, and thus, your session is a bust.
    Of course, if you have more dummy accounts, feel free to add as many as you like. The kill count will increase more quickly with more accounts in the game. The objective is to keep the number of human players (who will also need their own 10002 kills) down to a minimum.

    The set-up
    After you have neutralized all the flags, set up for the back-to-back knifing method (described in solutions above). It is pretty reliable in spawn-killing most randoms, even with only 4 accounts. There are ways to get out of the spawn-kill, but most randoms are not aware of these tricks.
    The way we did it is set up in a house with one knifer facing a corner of the room and the other one facing the inside of the room. For randoms it will almost be impossible to get away from the person facing the corner. It is easier to get away from the person facing the inside of the room. However, I have a CronusMax and turbo'ed the knife button. In 50h of boosting only 1 person ever got away from being spawn-killed, and that was due to my own mistake.

    Don't spawn your dummy while a random is in the lobby
    As soon as a random enters your lobby, stop spawning in with your dummy accounts. If the random is an anti-booster, they will try to time their own spawn with the spawn of your dummy account. If both accounts spawn at the same time, you will only be able to knife one of them, giving the random/anti-booster the chance to get away or kill you.
    What you can do though is to always wait until the random spawned in and got killed. Now he won't be able to spawn in for 15sec, so it is safe for you to spawn in your dummy accounts.

    DUS SOULWOUNDIf i have 4 xboxes and accounts myself, is this easily manageable?
    Any hints if setting it up on my own?
    Posted by DUS SOULWOUND on 24 Feb 19 at 09:02
    Dr MartyIt does work with 4 boxes by yourself. BUT you will either need at least 1 Cronus (or other turbo controller) or deal with the fact that you will have to press some button on all the controllers every few seconds for many many hours.
    btw controllers cannot be allowed to idle out otherwise they will get kicked from the game. So what usually happens is that you rubber band the left stick of the account that spawns in and gets killed to make them spin around (since pressing A for respawning does not count as a button input to restart the idle clock.) BUT this won't work for the account that does the back-2-back set-up with you since their back needs to face you at all times.

    Also, you will still only be able to kill one of your dummy accounts, since teams are always balanced. Of the 2 dummies on the enemy team, you need to have one for the back-2-back set-up so that the other one will spawn right in front of your killing account.

    While you have no randoms in the game, you can do the following:
    Every 12 seconds (time to respawn) press Y on your main account and press A on your dummy account. The other account that spawns in, but is on your team, is useless to you, since you can't kill it for points. Just rubber band the left stick to make it spin to prevent idling. As mentioned before, you can't do the same trick with the other dummy, so you'll have to remember to press a button every 10min or so.

    When a random enters it gets trickier: Randoms usually spawn on the team that is losing. So your dummy that is doing the back to back set up with you will most likely have to deal with the random. Make sure both the "spawn-in accounts" are dead and do not respawn them, so that the random can't spawn in on those accounts. At this point the only options the random has, is one of the back to back setup accounts. Now mash Y (for knifing) on both back to back accounts until you figure out where the random spawns in. If they spawn in on your dummy account (as they usually will) you can now spawn in again with the dummy that gets killed by your main account.

    There are more nuances to this but you will learn them as you boost.
