These are the first 3 weapons you unlock as an Engineer:

SCAR-L Carbine -- Unlocked at 2,510 Engineer Points
XM8 Compat -- Unlocked at 6,500 Engineer Points
AKS-74U Krinkov -- Unlocked at 16,000 Engineer Points

Note: Those that got the Gamestop preorder bonus of the early unlock for AKS-74U, this will not unlock the achievement early for you. You still need to hit 16,000 Engineer Points.

Note 2: You can use the website -- -- to track your progress. The stats may be delayed a little bit, but it saves you from quitting out of matchmaking and back to the main menu.

This acheivement can be easily had by following around vehicles with the power tool once you get it particularly vehicles with squadmates inside. I reccomend the Black Hawk. Sit in one of the jump seats with the tool out and repair when you take damage, it does work however the pilot most slow the chopper down considerably for this to work but he does NOT have to land or stay still this allows for evasion of rockets and Heavy MG fire while repairing. Again best done with squadmates in the vehicle.

Another solution to this achievement (And others like it) not listed above is by purchasing, either separately or together, the Specact upgrades for each class. By doing this, you are essentially unlocking the kit's final weapon unlock at the point of purchase. Currently, the weapons for all four kits only costs 480 points (about $5.00 American).

With these in your arsenal, points for the engineer class (as for the other classes) will be slightly easier to come by. Not to mention, by purchasing the Specact weapons, you'll also be eligible to earn the achievements for Specact weapons as well.

For all 'Expert' achievements:

Get 8 players in a session. Have each search for a Squad Rush game on any map with hardcore turned off. Put hardcore on if not getting anywhere. We had issues trying to pair up with preset teams so we searched individually. Once someone in the party gets into a match by themselves or with other party members, the rest of the party can "join session in progress" or accept a game invite and the two teams will sort themselves out.

Have everyone meet up at mCOM [A]. A player from the attacking team will start killing three defenders. The fourth defender will be a medic continuously reviving the other three. Be sure that there is always one player on the attacking team in the Assault class so as to always have ammo. Once the attacking player has earned 3000 credits from killing, the next attacker goes for kills and so on until all attackers have 3000 credits from kills. Destroy the mCOMs to cause the team roles to switch - attackers become defenders and defenders become attackers. Repeat above for the new attackers. Continue with subsequent maps until session ends.

Credits needed for each Achievement:
20,000 Assault Expert
16,000 Engineer Expert
25,000 Medic Expert
15,000 Recon Expert

You can then max out one of the above to get Battlefield Expert or you could just get 10,000 credits from a stationary machine gun mount. This counts as maxing out the vehicle class.
Non-killing players can earn additional credits by performing combat support actions. Recon class can throw motion mines, Medic can revive, Assault can throw ammo and Engineer can repair. If rank 11 or higher, you can shoot tracer darts. Of these, I found the motion mines to be the best. You will gain a tremendous amount of credits from end of match pins and awards.

Be sure to kill as the class you need. If you have the SPECACT DLCs, use the orange highlighted weapon for each class and go for head shots.

Make sure everyone has download the 1.6g update prior to session. Although you do not need to purchase the release code for the Vietnam DLC, this downloaded update provides all the maps needed for the sessions. Some players may need to activate their VIP code as well.

Worth adding that you cannot use vehicles (excluding repairs, and Inglorious Yogi's Blackhawk tip) to get this (as vehicle score adds to the vehicle unlocks), but you can use 'All Kits' weapons (e.g M1 Garand, Shotguns) as long as you are using them with the Engineer Kit.
