Easy as it sounds, just capture 10 flags in the game mode frontlines. I did this during early access, so there were no servers for frontlines at all (only conquest) so you have to play the infantry based playlist (TDM, Domination, and Frontlines). I will update the guide when they add frontlines servers..

EDIT (Thanks to Mr Dan Jones):

Just a tip if you press X when highlighting the Infantry Playlist you can see all the servers and what gamemode is currently active. Makes it a bit easier to find a Frontlines game.

Anyways, depending on the map you will have a set number of flags that you will have to capture and push your "frontline" towards the enemy base. This will take roughly 2 matches to complete (I got 8 flags on the map Twisted Steel because there are 5 total flags). Even if you or the enemy capture all the flags, the game is not over because you have to plant explosives at the enemy base, which is very difficult to do due to the spawn points. when you fail to plant the explosives (or vice versa) the last remaining flag opens up again so you can keep capturing until the game ends.

Please note, you only need to be in the flag area when the bar completely fills up and your team captures the flag, so try to survive when you are in the zone.

All in all, very simple achievement. let me know if I need to clarify or improve anything, thanks.

TG Airborne 88It almost seems like this has become an unobtainable achievement. The server browser seems to be pretty broken to me when going to the advanced search.

AbsoIuteZero xI will have to check again because I played it before it "officially" released, but I am sure as of today since it has released worldwide you should be able to search it through the regular "find server" option. I just played through the infantry playlist anyways so it will come around ~every third game. you can also leave a match if it is TDM or Dom and just rejoin the game mode.

TG Airborne 88You were right, even though it's not much, they're available now.

Lee AllsoppSame here I’ve captured well over 10 flags and my achievement counter isn’t going up

GaSHeAD 1883Same as me, hope this hasn’t become an unobtainable achievement
Posted by GaSHeAD 1883 on 22 Jan 19 at 23:08
GaSHeAD 1883People on playstation are having the same issue, they say to obtain it through GRAND OPERATIONS. I'm going to try it now.

GaSHeAD 1883Wicked, I couldn't get on a good enough team to capture flags so couldn't confirm lol. Thanks KrAnK2.
Posted by GaSHeAD 1883 on 24 Jan 19 at 09:29
KrAnK2same here.. the Achievements "roadkill 5 enemies" and "call in 2 reinforcements" also doesn´t work for me!

EDIT:
Grand Operations works!
Posted by KrAnK2 on 24 Jan 19 at 19:02
ballgreezy44So we have to play a long game of grand operations and hope our team is good enough to capture? That’s brilliant.
Posted by ballgreezy44 on 26 Jan 19 at 14:39
GaSHeAD 1883I swear i've been capturing flags in Grand Operations but it's not making the percentage rise? is it on a certain day i have to capture flags?

EDIT: Just read day 3 is Frontlines of devastation. This is where the percentage will increase should you capture the flags.

KontoGRAnybody knows why the fuck the tracker doesn't go up?
Posted by KontoGR on 28 Jan 19 at 13:05
GaSHeAD 1883If you’re playing Frontlines gamemofe KontoGR it’s glitched. The counter should go up if you play Grand Operations and capture the flags on day 3 I heard.
Posted by GaSHeAD 1883 on 28 Jan 19 at 13:16
KontoGRNope, doesn't work in Grand Operations either for me

OnAirJannickWe have to wait for a patch... Achievement seems to be unobtainable atm

GaSHeAD 1883Awesome new patch out today obviously fixed it, thanks Dangerous.

Mr Evil 37Just to confirm, the achievement now unlocks in the Frontlines game mode, not just Grand Operations? Thanks!

Elite1111111111Just a heads up that they've removed Frontlines as a standalone gamemode, so the only way to play it now is in Grand Operations.

EliteSpartan13Not sure if glitched or not but I captured a flag in frontlines during Grand Operations and the achievement tracker didn't move at all. This might possibly be unobtainable for now.
Posted by EliteSpartan13 on 01 Jun 19 at 23:35
LassiedelikkerSame, I did like 4 captures in frontlines during Grand Operations. tracker isn't moving. Maybe because the online achievements are still buggy or glitched!
Posted by Lassiedelikker on 03 Jun 19 at 09:56
SprinkyDinkTracker moves for me. Went from 0 percent to 90 percent. capped one flag. back at 10 percent. achievement is definetly glitched right now for some but not for everyone because someone popped it today.

SPOOKYVILLEAbsolute shite, this is one of a few achievements that progress jumps around like a fucking jumping bean. They have not got a clue.

HNorbertAchievement is glitched at the moment. The progress only counts if you stay on the same server/game session, and reset every time you leave the server. Same glitch occurs for every other MP achievement that tracks progress (like conquest on every launch map, 30 kills, etc.)
Posted by HNorbert on 11 Jun 19 at 08:24
KanchanaburiThe achievement RESETS back to your progress made prepatch every time you rejoin a new lobby. Therefore, people who were close to 10, and stay in the lobby, they can still get the achievement. but for people like me, who are starting off, you are going to stay in the same lobby for a long time, hoping to get a flag at the end of each game. As stated, all MP achievements with cumulative trackers are screwed.

SPOOKYVILLEConstant disconnects from servers mean virtually impossible to get any of the MP ones, totally sick of broken games like this shit

FelipeDornelas7I can't find server
Posted by FelipeDornelas7 on 05 Sep 19 at 00:14
can't find it, too. Seems that there are no Servers at the moment which are hosting this game type. "Workaround" Solution: Play Grand Operations. On some maps it will be the game mode on day 2.
Posted on 09 Sep 19 at 01:31
StefsamyOn day 3 on rotterdam and twisted steel. But it's not the same frontlines mode. Few flags, 1 by 1 and you must destroy/protect 3 items after. Very shitty achievement now.

Rista BI played grand operations for hours this weekend and ended up somehow capturing two flags per the achievement tracker. I cannot figure out which flags count and which don't and I sure hope this isn't resetting progress after you leave the game. I can't stay on a server for the 60 hours or more it seems like this achievement could take. Total piece of shit achievement as it's not clear how to get it at all.
