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.
Rista BThank you for the great tips and explanations, especially on the do not press the Xbox button on your controller! I got booted from two games.

Also can confirm this works. Joined frontline section of Arras, attacking side. We captured flag and I was part of capture. Finished remaining objectives and received 1 more flag capture towards achievement.

KanchanaburiAs for me, since 4.6 I cannot even find a game in NA for GrandOps. Occasionally there is a UK game but sometimes, nothing.

Rista BIt took me a fair amount of refreshing last night but had a few times when their was nothing and other times when there were options available. Was able to get 3 flags last night.

ShadyShallThese are great tips. Makes searching for the right game easier!!

However, something I would like to add is that when you are beginning your search, write the server numbers down, and do yourself a favor and ignore those. I joined those and 4 in a row were already at the end of the match (or getting slaughtered towards the end)... best wait to see a NEW game not on your list pop up because it'll obviously be the start of the match.

Also, matches with more people is definitely better here. i joined a lower count server (like 40 ppl) and the teams were very lopsided and my team didn't even try (i say snarkily) to capture the flag. You don't necessarily have control over this and when you see a server you should join regardless... just be prepared for disappointment.

this is by far the worst achievement in the game due to the lack of frontlines games available. FUCK EA. definite thumbs up for this server searching trick, tho...

[EDIT: i was refreshing as typing this and when done i joined a new game that popped up and landed on the good team and got 2 flags in the match! again - FANTASTIC searching tip!]

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
