    Due to a low player count, the gamemode was removed with Domination on May 30th, 2019. The only way you'll be able to get this achievement now is if you manage to reach the 'Frontlines' part of the game mode 'Grand Operations'.

    As of 27/09/2019 none of the guides are updated. But this solution will help you to clarify things.

    Update: Great addition from ShadyShall: Make sure to write down or memorise the Server number. This way you wont waste time joining to same server if you are too late for the flag.

    Battlefield V's framework is completely broken, whenever you press cn_guide button it will kick you out of the game. So you shouldnt check your achievement progress while playing the game. Recently patched.

    First of first, Frontlines only avaliable in Grand Operations. To make it easier for you; uncheck everything on advanced search. Then under maps section only choose these 3 maps: Devastation, Arras, Rotterdam. DO NOT CHOOSE Frontlines Mode, if you do specify the mode nothing will show up on Server list.

    After you set these 3 maps, only look for Frontlines games. It will be mixed with other game types. If nothing shows up, refresh by pressing cn_start.

    Pick one of the Frontlines game, the game has to be just started otherwise quit and look for another server. So, some people may not know this but only first objective(flag) counts towards the achievement. Not the other 3 objectives you explode further in game.

    After you captured the flag, dont check your progress, instead wait till game ends. Theres always another chance to get 2nd flag, that only happens if you dont explode 3 of the objectives and out of lives.

    Since 4.4 update achievement progress is fixed. Feel free to quit the game and look for another Frontlines mode. Your achievement progress wont reset.

    ShadyShallHeh... not yet. I am at 4/10 but with this tip - I am more optimistic and see the light at the end of this shitty dark frontlines tunnel...

    EDIT: i spent 2 days/nights playing grand operations and got just 2 captures. I put your tip to work last night and got 2 captures within an hour (lot of bad games joined but eventually got a good one!)... This morning, while working, having the advanced search open, refreshing. and joining games when they popped up --> *POP* in about 4 hours. wish i could give you numerous thumbs up. anyone struggling out there - do this! ^^^^claptoast

    To get this achievement, you need to capture 10 flags during the game type Frontlines (you must survive the flag capturing. You will find this game type (currently) in


    Currently, the GO Rotterdam campaign has frontlines on during DAY3 on the map Devastation. If you are looking in the custom games, you can look for either DEVASTATION map, FRONTLINES game type, OR you can look for Rotterdam map on Breakthrough game type. Joining the second one will ensure you have time to get the flag, however, you can always chance joining the frontlines game type right away, but usually, because of the slow loading times, you would join when it's too late.

    You can also find Frontlines game type on the map Arras during DAY3 of the GO Twisted Steal. Here you can join Arras Frontlines to be right there on DAY3 or you can join twisted steal breakthrough and join on Day2.

    MAKE SURE you join a GRANDOPERATIONS, as you can have most of these selections under their own gametypes.

    To get this, you must be on the flag when the team captures it during the first part of day 3. It is best to find a place to hide and let everyone else fight it out. From what I can tell, defender or attacker doesn't matter on this day, as both teams are fighting for the same flag capture. Also, if you capture it and then lose the next phase, you can a chance to get a second flag on the same match. So you know, as soon as you get one, go take a coffee break and hope your team gets pushed back for another chance.

    I should also note, that if you had previous progress to this, it may have been reset after the achievement fixing patch (as mine did). SO if you're returning to this, don't be surprised if your progress goes from 20% TO 10% AFTER capturing your first post 'fix' capture.

    Previously, there was a game mode called Frontlines but due to 'low player count' they eliminated the game mode. However, DICE has hinted it could be back during limited timed events. Who knows?

    Quazar9Great guide! This needs to be way higher voted. I tried the updated guides that gave maps Frontline was available and suggested just searching maps and hoping to find Frontline. You can search forever that way. If you instead search within Grand Operations for the day 1 and day 2 maps that lead to Frontline you save a ton of time and can actually play the game instead of constantly refreshing the search. Got 3 flags in 1.5 hours this way.
