Battlefield 4 – Naval Strike Assigments How To Guide

Battlefield 4 - Hardcore Battlefield Video of The Week 3

Water-themed expansion Naval Strike is now available to Battlefield gamers across all platforms, bringing another dash of high-octane action on four all new multiplayer maps. Along with the new playgrounds come the familiar assignments bundled with, offering either a nifty dogtag or weapon as an award for completion.

Some might be straight forward tasks that will have you asking for more, while others take time and effort to complete. Let’s be honest we all want to same thing, so why not check out our walkthrough of all assignments featured in Naval Strike.

Swiss Cheese


  • Three Light Machine Gun ribbons
  • Destroy three vehicles as Support class


  • AWS Light Machine Gun

The Swiss Cheese assignment won’t cause you too much pain, but for those who haven’t unlocked the firepower needed it can be frustrating. You’ll come across LMG ribbons from playing the game normally, so most of your concentration will go on destroying three vehicles. Having C4 will make your job a lot easier, but if you haven’t unlocked it yet then you can turn to the airburst launcher. While the launcher is ineffective against tanks and other heavily armored vehicles, it can heavily damage quads, rhibs and other small vehicles.

Spawn beacons and T.U.G.S also count as vehicles, so take them down quick if you come across them.

Giant Slayer


  • Reach Rank 10
  • Win 20 Rounds of Carrier Assault


  • Giant Slayer Dog Tag

If you’re new to Battlefield 4 then you’ll need to reach rank 10 to complete this assignment. The Carrier Assault game mode is a joy to play and easy to win if you launch with a good team, so the Giant Slayer assignment is probably the easiest of the lot.

Scourge of the Sea


  • 10 Hours on Naval Strike
  • 1 Kills with AA Mine


  • Scourge of the Sea Dog Tag

I hope you enjoy the maps that Naval Strike have on tap as this assignment asked for 10 hours played on the DLC. The other half asks for one kill with the AA Mine which isn’t as easy as you may think. The gadget cannot be picked up after being placed so take care when deploying. Having the AA Mine near an aircraft deployment will also increase your chances of getting a kill.

Death from Below


  • 3 PDW Ribbons
  • Destroy 5 Attack Air Vehicles with Rocket Launchers


  • AA Mine

While getting three PDW ribbons is a piece if cake, taking down enemy aircrafts certainly isn’t.

Attack air vehicles include Scout Helicopters, Attack Helicopters, Attack Jets and Stealth Jets and you’ll come across plenty on the battlefield. Many have asked if anti-aircraft launchers will add to the tally and they do thankfully, so loadout with that Stinger or IGLA and you’ll have the AA Mine in no time.

Multi Tool


  • 10 Kills with Underslung Grenade Launcher Dart
  • 10 Kills with Underslung Grenade Launcher LVG


  • 3GL

Personally my favorite assignment available as it asks for destruction and rewards you with the same. Don’t have to go into much details with this one, just aim your launchers into a good crowd of enemies and let it go to work.

Playing on maps like Silk Road, Dragon’s Pass and other mostly open maps will make your job harder, so use the power of server browser to pick maps with narrow halls and tunnels, allowing for solid impact. Operation Metro would be a good start.

Curve Ball


  • 10 Kills with RGO Impact


  • SW40

Getting your mitts on baseball fans we’ve got some throwing to do. Let’s be honest, the RGO Impact isn’t the go to grenade, as it has very low damage to balance the fact it detonates immediately on impact. Persistence is key, eventually you’ll grind out kills from hitting already hurt enemies and playing on narrow maps like I mentioned above.

Always Deadly


  • Sniper Rifle Ribbons
  • 5 C4 Kills on Naval Strike Maps


  • SR338

Thankfully sniper rifles and C4 go hand-in-hand with the Recon setup so switching class wont be a problem. If you are having trouble sniping from a distance then simply change the sight attachments to something small and get up close and personal. Getting the C4 kills on Naval Strike is self-explanatory, get close to boats or cornered enemies and let them have it.

Packing A Punch


  • Destroy 20 Watercraft


  • SR-2

Thankfully Naval Strike has an abundance of naval vehicles, from attack boats to hovercrafts( Yes I said hovercrafts), so no excuses if you don’t come across any while playing. There’s many ways of approaching this and really comes down to your style of play. If you enjoy using attack boats and hunting your enemies then go for it, even getting someone to tag along and mark targets for you and simply whip out the Javelin… The world is your oyster and yes I’m aware I referenced a sea creature.

Spare Time Sniper


  • 3 Assault Rifle Ribbons
  • 20 Headshots with Assault Rifles


  • AR-160

Assault rifle aficionados rejoice as luck shines upon you this day. This assignment requires only your best marksmanship on the battlefield and notching up those headshots. Play as normal and you’ll be done before you know it.

Titans of Steel


  • Destroy an Objective in Carrier Assault


  • Titans of Steel Dog Tag

I don’t know about you guys but the minute I purchased Naval Strike I hopped straight into the new Carrier Assault game mode and instantly began to enjoy the new challenge. If you haven’t a clue how the mode works then follow the link right here to spruce up… We’ll wait…

Ok your back! Now that you have an idea how the destructible objectives work in Carrier Assault, then you know there is a waiting period until the doors open on the enemy carrier. We suggest hugging the door until it opens, then wasting no time arming the M-COM station not far from the door. Be wary though, tactically minded players will be waiting for you on the other side fully loaded.

Phantom Trainee


Premium members only

  • 200 Kills with Pistols
  • 20 Kills with Jets
  • 2 Shotgun Ribbons in a Round


  • Phantom Camo

Unfortunately you need to be a Premium member to complete this assignment and it’s quite an unorthodox one at that.

The first task is to complete the requirements above. For the pistols and shotgun ribbons(shotty not included) I suggest playing domination or obliteration, where you come across enemies more frequently. The jet requirement can be completed with a good session of Air Superiority.

This is where it gets weird! After completing the tasks you will need to head over to Battlelog and go to leaderboards and click the bottom left of the page. Once all the text populates, type in “epic dream worlds”(without the quotes) and watch as the screen fills with more text. Congrats you have successfully unlocked the Phantom Trainee assignment.


Hopefully this guide gets you on the way to unlocking all those killer weapons that shipped out with Naval Strike. With more expansions to release for Battlefield 4 we can expect more assignments, which of course us at LzyGmrs will be all over it.
