Alright, I just got my S-Rank in Bad Company 2 after many months of work and playing of DLC. I'm quite proud of this one. Many thanks to Damien for helping me finally get "Et Tu Brute?". Those of you who have the S-Rank stand up and be counted!
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 S-Rank Club
Onslaught is fun but in order to get all the achievements you have to complete the four maps on Hardcore mode. This sucks most of the fun out and turns it into a situation where you can spend twenty minutes slowly moving across a map and have every die in seconds. I managed to get it in a couple of days but you definitely have to have a group of people who know what they're doing.
As for SpecAct I'm pretty sure that the backdoor free mode doesn't work. As it is the DLC isn't too expensive and gets you some easy achievements and some nice weapon and class skins.
I actually really enjoyed playing Onslaught on hardcore (interesting because I dont enjoy competitive mp on hardcore). Sure it was tough, but it was intense, and with a group of guys who know what they're doing and communicate well, it's totally doable, and rewarding.
Oh, and since I'm ps3, I have the equivalent of s-rank, platinum trophy with all dlc trophies too.
I've played an awful lot of this game. I got all the original achievements within a week or two. The SPECACT stuff came a while after it was actually released because I ended up taking a big break before I got the 100 kills with each weapon. Luckily I had the majority of the M95 kills before the patch when that weapon was beastly. The Onslaught stuff was easy enough, even got it with randoms from Europe (and before anyone reads into that, that's a comment that I was up till 5am+ when the European people start coming on, not a slight in their gaming abilities).
