A good achievement isn’t a marker or a waypoint, but a challenge. On the surface but a few words and a pretty picture; beneath that, an idea that makes you wonder at the new possibilities in store. Case in point: “Get one kill with the quad bike”.
This is but one of the five new achievements coming in Armored Kill, the vehicular-driven DLC pack coming to Battlefield 3 by the end of September. See the rest below:-
In addition, five dog tags and five assignments will debut with Armored Kill, listed here for your delectation:-

If, like me, your fondest Battlefield memories remain hunched in a sidecar back in the Pacific mists of 1942, the emergent means by which a quad bike might kill a man will be a topic of near-endless fascination to you. So: how would you do it? And will these assignments / dog tags / achievements cause you to break a sweat?
