Assignment (Assault Class): Professional Russian – 20 kills with Underslung Grenade Launcher
How do I use, find equip or arm the underslung grenade launcher? First off, there is no weapon called the underslung grenade launcher. You need to unlock the M320 grenade launcher, so you may have already used it and didn’t realize it. After you unlock the M320 select an assault rifle like the AEK-971, equip underslung rail, make sure your gadget 1 position is the M320 grenade launcher.
UPDATE FROM BF3 WIKIA’S M320 PAGE:
The M320 is an Assault gadget in Battlefield 3′s multiplayer. The M320 is an underbarrel attachment when the assault rifle’s second slot is left empty (on the ‘Underslung Rail’ option), but is a standalone weapon when the second slot on the assault rifle is filled.
The grenade launcher occupies the Gadget 1 slot, which is shared with the Medkit.
To unlock the M320 you need an Assault score of 11,000. What’s an assault score, you ask? Whether you play as Assault, Engineer, Support or Recon – you earn points for that class as you play. So that means you play Assault class until you reach 11,000 points.
How do you check your points for Assault class? The easiest way I can think of to check your points by class is to go to http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bf3/ and click the Solider Stats link, the look down the right hand sidebar for your number of points in Assault.
You would think the M16A4 would be more advanced than the M16A3 due to it being the newer version, and in real life this is likely the case. In Battlefield 3, the 2 weapons are almost identical except for their fire modes (see below). Although the Wikia page for the M16 mentions that the M16A3 has a slightly faster empty reload time , the statistics listed under each variant are exactly the same - 1.80 loaded and 2.37 empty.
M16A3 Fire Modes: Semi Automatic/Automatic
M16A4 Fire Modes: Semi Automatic/3 Round Burst
After using the M16A3 and getting used to pelting enemies with automatic fire it took some getting used to 3 round burst mode.
Battlefield 3 Multiplayer tips of various levels from basic to more advanced.
Set traps – When you have C4, or even better if you have Claymore mines.
Place your trap in a place that has only 1 or 2 ways to get to you, and try to cover the entry. Then get irritating – shoot a bunch of enemies up (even if you miss) or even just fire around a lot until you draw attention. When someone comes, set off your C4 (you have to be able to monitor someone’s approach) or if you used a Claymore, its set-it-and-forget-it. Just wait to hear the BOOM.
Set a different trap (the “Lure”) – Get REAL annoying by setting up a mortar and shelling the enemy. If they know what they are doing, they’ll come after you. If your team knows what they are doing, they will cover entryways to your position and shoot the “fish in the barrel” as they approach. Get ready though, you will get killed because after enough time they will probably get through. You could also use the MAV, a loud weapon, or anything that would grate on your enemies’ nerves to set a trap.
You can also find a place where some of your teammates have holed up and maybe even camped, and lure enemy soldiers into their sights.
Be ready at all times – When you are running around, when you are sniping (in the scope), when you are sitting still in that dark building where you can’t be seen, wherever you are you should be ready to start shooting at a second’s notices. First and foremost that means always reloading after you have fired your weapon, especially if you get close to empty. If your assault rifle is down to 5 bullets, you definitely need to be looking at where you can safely reload. If you have an M249 you might reload when you are in a “safe place” when you get down to 20-50 rounds (personal choice, of course).
So now you are in the habit (hopefully) of staying reloaded, now you need to be ready when an enemy soldier surprises you by appearing “out of nowhere” right in front of you. Right away you have to be aiming and firing (or firing then aiming, depending upon the situation). That means being ready to fire immediately when you run into someone face-to-face at short distance or when someone runs right in front of where you happen to be sitting/standing/camping.
These are Battlefield 3 tips I’ve quickly typed out as I saw them on the screen waiting for Multiplayer, and Co-Op matches and Campaign games to start. Some will contain typos and synonyms and may later be revised. If you see one that’s worded wrong just drop a comment below and I’ll see about getting it squared away.

Welcome to my Battlefield 3 Multiplayer gaming guide. This will by no means be exhaustive but should get you off to a great start. Questions? Leave them below in comments and if I have time and am still able, I’ll address your question.
If you want tips, hints, strategies & tactics for BF3 Multiplayer, look at the BF3 Multiplayer Tips & Hints page. This multiplayer guide more addresses the WHAT of BF3 online gaming whereas the tips & hints page more addresses the HOW for BF3 online.
First Things First: Join A Game
I’m going to assume you are playing the game on an Xbox, but some of this info will apply regardless of your gaming platform. From your main Battlefield 3 (BF3) menu, and using your multiplayer disc select Multiplayer. On the next screen you have lots of options. I usually just click Quick Match, then go down to Game Mode and select Conquest, Team Deathmatch or Squad Deathmatch because those are the game types I prefer [read about the BF3 Game Modes]. You can also select a map, but I usually skip this and just click Find a Game. When the game stats select a class and, if you want to, customize your loadout.
Next: How to Quit a Multiplayer Match
For some reason it can be a bit confusing about how to quit a Battlefield 3 Multiplayer match. After the game you see the scores, then you get a run-down of your ribbons, points, new unlocks etc. Then it goes back to the score board and the whole time you have been able to see in the upper right a countdown to the next match. But there is no quit button. More >
I was playing Conquest on Tehran Highway tonight and got sandwiched by a squad on 2 or 3 up laying prone against the wall at the edge of the map and 1 guy on overwatch on the overpass. I drove in there in a BMP feeling all safe from being sniped or ambushed trying to re-take a flag in Conquest and this guy on top of the overpass – you know, the highway running ABOVE the truck flag area – starts firing AT rounds at me. I got out to try and shoot him and the guys laying in quiet wait behind me as I faced the overpass took me out.
Later, I looked around and looked but found no ladders before the game ended. Google provided the answer. This youtube video How To Get On The Overpass On The Map Tehran Highway explains basically you need to equip your MAV at the right spot beside the overpass (see the video below or click link for precise info). You can do this to get to “impossible places” on many maps. More >
Having played Battlefield 3 for about 3 days now I’m revising my earlier 5 out of 5 star rating down to 4.5 star. I’ve played BF3 Campaign and BF3 Multiplayer. In BF3 Multiplayer I’ve played Team Deathmatch, Squad Deathmatch and accidentally got into Conquest not paying attention to the menu.
Why I Dropped BF3 Down To 4.5 Stars?
One of the most frustrating things in a game is basic stuff like getting stuck on a curb and dying. I have gone to run over curbs and curb-sized stuff and got stuck. Why should I hit JUMP to get over something I would walk over in real life? We’re talking about 6 inches high, and I need to jump … really?! More >
You might be wondering how to get those cool custom dog tags you see everyone using each time you get killed in game.First of all, make sure when you are looking at your dog tags you SCROLL DOWN the list even though most or all of the dog tags you see are blacked out.
Check out the link below for more details … but you can watch the Act of Valor movie trailer (about 3 mins, 17 sec long) and afterward you are prompted for Xbox, PS3 or PC. Click your choice. For the Xbox I can tell you after you’ve seen the screen telling you that you’ve redeemed the dog tags sucessfully, the next time you log in to BF3 you will see a notification of new dog tags.
Here’s the post with links for free BF3 dog tags (ignore the Dr Pepper expiration date, just go to their website).
ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT NOTE: ADVANCED DOG TAGS (RIGHT SIDE)
If you want to use the Advanced Dog tags, from game unlocks, you must have 50 kills with the knife (assassinations) first. The dog tags above, and possibly others that are given away, are not subject to the 50 knife kills rule.
