    Badges can only be obtained in ranked matches. If ranked stats have been disabled in your game (i.e. there are less than 4 human players in the game) you will not be able to earn any badges.

    In order to qualify for a badge you must fulfil the criteria listed below in a single game. Unlike the feat awards you can die before completing the badge and you will not lose your progress towards it.

    You can view your current badge stats by selecting "Dropship" from the main game menu, then select "Awards". Please note that the game is often slow to update the details on this page. If you don't see a badge you know you've obtained just try looking again later on.

    There are 32 badges in total split into 4 groups. Listed below are each group, the badges within that group, and how to obtain them (using the in-game descriptions).

    If you're unsure about any of the criteria listed, or you have any tips on how best to obtain a specific badge, please post a comment and I will either try to help you out or add your tip to the guide smile

    A couple of the badges below may have confusing criteria. These are "Point Offense - Get 8 Attacks" and "Guardian - Protect friendly control points with 8 Defenses or Denials".

    These are related to obtaining kills when at a control point. To get an "Attack" you and an enemy must be standing in range of a neutral or enemy controlled control point (basically standing on the circular "base" of the control point) when you get the kill. The combat message in the lower right of the screen should say you got an "Offense". You will need 8 of these in a match to get the badge.

    The "Defenses" and "Denials" are pretty similar to the above but must be done on a friendly control point (one your team controls). A "Defense" will be when you and your enemy are standing in the control point when you get the kill. A "Denial" will be when the enemy is currently hacking your control point and you get the kill.


    Specialist - Kill 8 players with equipment
    Point Offense - Get 8 Attacks
    Armor Combat - Kill 8 players with the heavy armour
    Infantry Combat - Kill 20 players
    Anti-Vehicular Combat - Destroy 3 vehicles
    Retaliation - Get 4 Avenges
    Tank Combat - Kill 8 players with a tank
    Marksman - Kill 15 players with non-vehicle weapons


    Objective Support - Assist in the capture of 4 control points
    Conquer - Capture 4 control points
    Enduring Service - Complete a game (must have been in 30% of the game)
    Distinguished Service - Finish at least 3rd place wih 12 or more players
    Guardian - Protect friendly control points with 8 Defenses or Denials
    Sapper - Hack 8 control points

    Brutaka5So wait I'm supposed to stay in the round oval circle area when your supposed to capture the control point and stay there while getting 8 kills with my own weapon or with a defense from a distance? Sorry dude but this one was actually the most confusing one throughout the medals. Even from what it says it still confuses me. I've tried looking up videos and all that to see what it actually meant but still its tough. Hey if you get this and respond back could you send me a message cause I never received a notification from you responding back. Sorry about the trouble. Actually I wonder if your able to help me get the achievements that require you to finish all maps on swarm and the one that is set to insane difficulty. By golly that one is HARD and I'm good at the game. That achievement is bloody hard.

    Brutaka5What the heck is a guardian and a denial? Sorry but it's been along time since I've played this game and I'm going to be playing it now but it's still confusing to actually remember these things.

    Brutaka5Yea could you help me with this achievement? If you have any friends try inviting them to if you may? This is one of the hardest achievements to get. It's not hard because you know what to do but because it's hard for finding people online and you getting that medal.

    dropK1CK ninJACan this be boosted?
    Posted by dropK1CK ninJA on 14 Jun 11 at 01:09
    Yes it can. You need at least 4 people for the match to be counted as ranked but they're (mostly) easily boosted.

    The only tricky ones are the DCM badges, purely because the PC occasionally takes ages to deliver the one you're working towards (took about 20 games on the PC version before I managed to get the Commando DCM to spawn).

    No worries. If you need any more info on any of them let me know and I'll help you out. I've completed both this and the PC version so should be able to answer any questions you have.
