    For this achievement you need to be in the best squad on each of the three maps. You can check at the end of a game if you are in the best squad by pressing X to show the squad scores screen.

    You get to be in the best squad by getting a high score so my tip would be to try and capture as many flags as possible as you get 30 points each time or 10 for assisting. Also killing an enemy while defending a flag will earn you a bonus.

    [UPDATE] There are some problems with getting this achievement, some have done the requirements several times over and it has still not unlocked. Try the following by 'Seraphim Needed' which he posted in the comments below:

    Every person I have heard report that they have gotten this achievement have done it while not in a squad. NightStalkar and I played together and got top squad countless times. Both of us were getting frustrated. We were getting annoyed because one of our friends got it on the first match he played with us while he wasn't in a squad. In frustration, both of us left the squad we were in and played the rest of the match as lone wolfs. As soon as the round ended, bam, both of us got it.

    Dr MartyI agree that this is random. I got this achievement being in a squad of 3 on a map on which I had received "best squad" multiple times before. I had 4 "best squads" on Wake Island, 2x on Iwo Jima and 1x on Canal.
    That also means that you don't have to get best squad with both factions; or with a full squad of 4; or get the ribbon for winning 3 best squad on each map.

    MaurickShepherdI'm about 55 games in, and I still don't have the achievement although I have gotten best squad on all three maps. I won't give up, but I hope I get it up to the 100 games achievement.

    iiAssassinXxiiSuper glitchy. I won and was the best squad on all 3 maps (all but Iwo Jima both sides) didn't get that achievement. Played a bit on solo and after Iwo Jima match I got the achievement instantly. Think it's that map that messes the achievement up.

    Ok Ive tested this and Emuholic is correct. You must not be in a squad to get this OR be in a full 4 player squad. Anything less than four and more than 1 in a squad seem to not count. I noticed that the best squad stamp wasnt going up past x4 for me and realized i was playing with my friend since I had gotten those 4 so today I joined some games and played lone wolf and first map I beat (Iwo-Jima) I got the achievement so I played one more round and afterwards I have x6 for best squad stamp even though I was no where near close to being the best squad for that round But I was in the top 5. I think the stamp/achievement are misworded or are awarded for the wrong thing.

    GR1N REAP3RCan confirmed that you don't have to be in a squad. You can go lone-wolf to get the achievement.

    It seemed to me, after just earning this achievement, that it is necessary to earn top squad on each faction on all three maps. I was keeping track of myself, and I did not get it until I had won it both as Japanese and as U.S. player on all three maps, finishing with Iwo Jima.

    So for those having difficulty, keep track of which faction on what map you have earned it. Also, I was in the same squad, some friends of mine, the entire time.
