Faster ranking in Multiplayer mode

To get approximately 500 to 600 score per minute, do the following:

  • Always play in a squad. Try to play in a squad where all teammates communicate with each other.
  • Play Quickmatch Domination. You get points much quicker in this mode than other modes.
  • Make sure your team focuses on the objective.
  • Have your squad leader issue useful attack commands that get your team points. For example, you normally get 200 points for capturing a base in Domination. However, if your squad leader marks the base, you get an additional 100 points for following his orders. You will also get an "Order Followed" bonus worth up to 80 extra points. Additionally, the squad can separate into two separate groups. The squad leader can then issue commands to attack two separate bases at different times, alternating between bases. If successful, you will get an extra 100 points even though you never captured the other base. You can get a possible 480 points in ten seconds by using this method.
  • The squad leader must always pay attention to all bases. If a base is about to be captured, the squad leader needs to make sure to change the attack orders so everyone on the team gets at least 100 points, even if they are not at that base. Even if you are dead and none of your teammates are at the base being captured, you will still get 100 points for it being captured if the squad leader has attack orders on it.
  • Make sure your squad always sticks together and the squad composition has variety. It is recommended to have at least two medics and two support players. Since there are no vehicles in Quickmatch Domination, assault units are not too useful. Since you are running around a lot and trying to capture bases, the sniper class is also not very useful.
  • If your squad always sticks together, you will get extra points since you will be spawning on each other, spotting enemies, and suppressing enemies with gunfire. You will also receive signifiant points for healing your teammates and resupplying them with ammo.
  • Play the objective and focus on only killing enemies that stand in your way of capturing a base or getting to the next base to capture.
  • The best situation that can occur is circling the map while following the enemy, capturing points that they just captured.

Hidden Cavalry Sword

In the "Breakdown" mission in the "Through Mud And Blood" war story, proceed along the road to the French village where you need to collect parts for your broken tank. This is the village with the windmill on the hill overlooking the town. Once you reach the village, look for a two-story house on the left with a mounted machine gun on the balcony and a soldier looking out the window, directly above a corner door. This is a building on the main street, near the edge of the town facing the windmill. Directly beneath the machine gun turret is the Cavalry Sword under a table on the first floor.

The World's Tiniest Gun

Reach Rank 10 in Multiplayer mode to unlock the Kolibri for purchase for 150 warbonds. The Kolibri is a pocket-sized gun held between the thumb and index finger. It fires 2mm bullets, and was (at one point) available commercially to the public. The magazine holds 8 rounds. The gun is so small, it cannot be held in the palm of your hand. Instead, you have to pinch the pistol's grip between the forefinger and thumb to get a grip. There really is no other gun quite like it. The 2mm bullets barely inflict any damage to your opponents, but you can still earn kills with it. It is more used as a novelty taunt, as nobody wants to get killed by the tiniest gun in history.

All Field Manual locations

Search the indicated locations in the listed war story to find all the Field Manuals. There are a total of 66 Field Manuals in the five war stories. Some missions do not have a Field Manual in them. Each Field Manual is saved instantly when collected. Thus, you can quit out to the main menu immediately without losing any progress. You do not have to collect them again when you die and none of them are missable. You can view how many Field Manuals you have found in each mission and how many are missing under the mission selection screen. You can also pause a mission at any time to view your collectible progress. Every mission has a codex entry for finding all the Field Manuals in it.

War Story 1: Through Mud And Blood

Over The Top

    1. After capturing all three points in the village, proceed up the hill and across the roads until you reach the exterior wall of fortifications made with logs standing on end. Near the exterior wall exit is a weapon station tent with used shells scattered around and the first manual.

    2. In the town under bombardment, move to the fortified church on the right side to find a makeshift hospital/barrack inside the structure. Near the large pots is a crate with the manual.

    3. There is another crate at the chapel —- leave through the back entrance. Then, turn right (left if you are facing the chapel) to find the manual crate along the exterior of the church structure, next to a large green metal wheel.

    4. At Point D, the farm with trenches dug through the premises, is a manual crate near the home on the right, on the grass between the structure and the trench.

    5. Follow the road up from the outpost. The road to the left leads up a hill, and contains abandoned cars with AT guns. On the ground next to one of the AT guns is the final manual for this mission, which is right before the bridge at the end of the mission.

Fog Of War

    1. When you are fighting through the gun emplacements past the wooden bridge early in the mission, there will be two field guns —- the path strays left into the forest. When it does, turn right and proceed up the hill to find a manual crate.

    2. In the old church stone ruins (with the arches above ground), enter the bunker basement and look in the back left corner, opposite the generator, to find a manual.

    3. At the heavy bridge with metal girders built over the small creek, look under the bridge (on the far end) for a small flatland with a manual.

    4. When you reach the hill with the large concrete bunkers, enter the far left bunker to find a manual crate inside.

    5. In the same area as the fourth manual is a small supply depot on the right from the entrance path. Look near the road, behind mounds of dirt, to find a small manual crate near the larger supply crates.

Breakdown

    1. Proceed towards the objective in the muddy village with the objective at the center. Before going straight for the white objective marker, look in the shack door in the back left corner of the block to find a manual.

    2. Go down the hill and look inside the windmill -- there is a dirt path and a fence between the first manual and the windmill containing the second manual. Climb to the top of the mill to find the manual crate.

    3. There is a refueling station and repair depot for tanks in the village below (and right) of the windmill containing the second manual. Go to the fourth floor attic of the large building directly next to the tank repair station in the village, and look behind the traps to find a manual crate.

    4. In the same town as the last manual, go to the main street to find a two-story building with an MG turret in the corner window facing the village'd main street entrance. The Cavalry Sword is located under a table near the corner door. Go upstairs to the MG nest to find the manual crate behind some furniture.

    5. Start from the location of the first manual and proceed right instead of left. Up the street (with the stone bridge over a creek) on the right side of the village, before entering the main area, look for a farm house with a fenced backyard and an army tent in the back left corner. Opposite of the tent is a storage shack with a manual crate.

Steel On Steel

    1. On the outskirts of town, look in the windmill to find a manual crate. You must exit your tank to enter the windmill. This is the upper-most windmill, before going down the hill towards the town.

    2. From the previous windmill, go down the hill, past the destroyed encampment, and proceed right towards the river. There is another windmill further down (next to the water) with a manual in the same location.

    3. Go to the windmill on the left side from the start (opposite of the second manual, or left of the first manual) to find it down the hill, around the same elevation as the second manual.

    4. Proceed through the town. As you exit the main cluster of structures, you will reach a fourth windmill on the right of the street, next to the river with the stone bridge, where the fourth manual is located.

    5. From the location of the fourth manual, look in the distance for another windmill across the valley on a hill overlooking the next cluster of buildings, to the right as you move forward. That is the area where the final manual can be found. Cross the stone bridge and go up the hill to reach it.

Weapon skins

Weapon skins can be earned from promotional offers, but mainly through Battlepacks. Weapon skins come in three rarity levels: special, distinguished, and legendary. Battlepacks can be purchased using War Bonds or crafted with scrap. They also come in three rarity levels: standard, enhanced, and superior. Better Battlepacks give you a higher chance of unlocking a rare weapon skin. Enhanced and superior Battlepacks can only be earned by spending scrap. Scrap is earned by breaking down bonus or customization items —- the higher the rarity level, the more scrap you will earn. After unlocking a new weapon skin, you still must purchase the skin with War Bonds. War Bonds and scrap can be earned in-game. The following is a list of all known weapon skins. Note: This is not the complete list. Check back in the future for more skins, as well as their unlock requirements and rarity.

Morse code translation

While at a capture point and calling in an artillery strike, you will hear a short radio message and a string of Morse code over the telegraph. The translation of the Morse code message used in-game is simply the word "Morse".

Mirror's Edge: Catalyst reference

During the opening cutscene of the "Through Mud And Blood" war story, you can see the word "Faith" marked in white chalk on the interior of the tank. This is a reference to the game Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, which is another game by the same developer, DICE. Mirror's Edge: Catalyst starred Faith Connors, a parkour expert that helps expose corruption in the futuristic city of Glass.
