I was just wondering how some of you get your expert combat badges because 35 kills with a sniper in ONE round? and for the rest 40??? and on SF, 44.  It just seems hard to get b/c I let someone get expert medic with a tank only cause they asked nicely.  yeah.

Well all of my Expert badges I had to get on foot (Expert Pistol, Expert Knife) and I didn't get them on a Knife and Pistol server. But for my expert badges, I'm gonna get them on foot, not in a vehicle.

Yup,or the even cheaper way - become commander and go crazy with the arty.

Warlord + APC = Expert combat and specialist badges (for those who have SF and want to get both in one swoop).

I got my Expert Assault on a FULL 32 Karkand. THAT was hard.

The rest I either hop in armor or like i did last night and go on a near empty 64 player server

Arty kills don't count dude.

Your kills using Arty do not count towards any badges.  They used to a long time ago, but this was done away with in the recent patches.

EDIT:  Crap, was beat to it.

Which patch? Must be 1.22 then because in 1.21 I got my expert sniper with sniping and claymores AND arty!!!

And if I'm into playing medic tonight I'll show you that it still works in 1.22.

Yup, they still do.  Arty still counts as kills in your stats, you just get no points for it.

Hmm,I got 22/0 and a few other rounds with a similar score on Maashtur as a sniper,and that was really laid back sniping with the occasional planting of claymores.

If you really hang into it and use each class like it's supposed to be used you can get 40 kills on foot,sure it isn't easy,but it isn't called Expert for nothing...

I got my Expert Medic unexpectedly the other day...started as a medic on Karkand, noticed there was no takers for Commander so I took it.  I always go in as an Engineer when I Command so I figured I would switch to Engineer on my next respawn.

I went the entire round without dying and registered 46 arty kills that round, as you can see in my stats is my new kill streak.  Very surprised when I heard that voice say "You have been recommended for an award".....

Not got any of the expert badges yet, working on them the hard way. Not armour/apc/helicopter/plane whoring but good old fashioned sniping. Really annoying thing currently is I keep getting close then the time runs out or the team wins/loses.

I havent got any kit expert badges but i do have knife and pistol which i got from a 64 player karkand, also on the same server i got 46 kills with the sniper and 24 of those were before i even got my first death and i was being very agressive using the L96A1

Pfft, you nerds who are all like "i'm going to do it the hard way". Screw that, when I have 100 hours in my kits, i'm going to arty me some mofos. It's just a shame you can't get the pistol and knife ones that way!

well i only have 1 because i dont have 100 hours with the other kits. although some are close. You dont need armor, or helo, or anything else. Just get good with the kit. Its really not that hard to get 40 kills in 1 round with any kit. you just have to practice and get better with it. Strats, strats, strats. each kit has a different strat for every map. Either run with high ranked infantry or practice. Sure you can get your badges from helos, armor and such. And theres really nothing wrong with doing it that way. I myself am straight infantry so i plan on getting all badges / medals / all awards the old fashion way, hard work. thats what makes you a better all round player. But if you just want to "look" like one then do what you have to do.
