Mastery VI Assignments for self-loading rifles

So I've done all of them for the semi-auto rifles (the ones the assault class has) and pretty much everything else so the only ones that remain are the Self-Loading Rifles for the recon class. It's hard, like really, really hard. The hardest out there. I'm particularly struggling with the last one which says "Headshot kill 10/20 enemies in objective areas in one life/round."

Unlike as an assault class, you cannot land shots that fast since you have a slow rate of fire and at the same time a long reload time (Model 8). I heard there was a secret third option to this which has worked for many here. What is that option? Do you have any suggestions on doing this one? Also is there going to be a rework around this particular assignment? Or am I stuck here and just need to grind for it playing with the same weapon over and over again?

    Grind it out, there is a hidden cumulative method to unlock this so it'll take some time. I don't know how many it is, but id guess around 60. I unlocked the final mastery for the ZH29 this way, the best I ever got in a round was 14 IIRC.

    Its a **** assignment pulled from someones rear who just applied the same objective to all recon weapons even though the SLRs need multiple HS to kill (The ZH29 does anyway). Nigh on impossible to do this in an objective area.

    Hey

    From What I've heard and seen, the "in 1 round" is applicable in a Grand Operation, over the 3 days. As long as you do not leave until the next Map change.

    So for example:

    Day 1 - 5 counts for the Assignment
    Day 2 - 7 counts for the Assignment
    Day 3 - 8 counts for the Assignment

    Gives you the 20, and if doesn't track in a match, but when you go to the main menu, it's tracked on the back end.

    I've had issues ingame, tracking the one Recon assignment, to complete all 3.
    4 HS Kills in 1 life.
    15 Spot assists
    and 35 off Kills in OBJ area's

    I did the 4 HS Kills and 15 Spots in 1 round, didn't play for 2 days due to work. and slowly ground the 35 kills.
    Then ingame it tracked the 35 kills, but kept prompting on the left side, I was getting the spots and HS kills. Until I got the final kill from 25 and left the game.
    My UI Bugged out, so I had to relog the game completely, and it was gone from the assignments page.

    So much for fixing the UI and tracking of assignments.

    Hope this helps.

    Edit: 1 last thing before you take note of the post, the Assault Assignment, where you need 7 kills in a round with Explosives, it seems to be in 1 life, but not stipulated, as I got 9 kills in one Breakthrough map, and it never counted. Even with closing the game and reopening. There is some confusion with the description which can be limited.

    If Grand Operations counted, why would the counter reset itself after each "day"?

    It's bugged in the UI tracking, cause remember the Grand Ops you don't get the full talley of points for showing weapon XP, Class XP and such until the end of the 3rd Day.
    You keep your points if you leave after day 2. But officially the "round" ends after the full 3 days, before the new Map load, as opposed to the conventional modes, like conquest, Breakthrough and such.

    Try it out and see, report back if it works or not.

    Will do, thanks for the suggestion.

    I'm still not able to select the last mastery for the ZH-29.
    Am I the only one?

    I'm also grinding this one with the M8 (still). Can confirm that it is magnitudes harder than any other (I don't mind it though as a challenging weapon is somewhat satisfactory to play with. Each kill feels like a small victory when you know the other guy carries something way more powerful.)

    Regarding GA, I have no idea whether it counts over the days or not but one needs to be aware that some of the modes included has very small cap areas and rarely anyone is in there at all (basically only when disarming/arming for example) so getting many 'in cap area' kills can be quite hard. Many of these rounds can also be very fast over if the attackers just steam roll the defenses. When doing these one would like the good old Frontlines from BF1 back (before they added a time limit.) ;).

    I heard it was a 100 kills, so I'm hoping you're right!!!

    RSC was a nightmare but got the 10 in one life.
    The M1A1 I unlocked via the 60-100 kills, I would say it's more like 60.

    This could be true.

    I was doing Sten Mastery Vi but never quite got the 20 kills per round (day).

    When I left after the final day, the assignment was awarded.

    Tried now, with the STG44, did 8, 10 and 8 odd, not registering after I left after full GO map round, and an Origin reboot, so hard as it's not known how far out an objective I was, nor if the Obj must be marked by Squad Leader or not.

    Stuck on STG44 Mastery VII

    I'm honestly ignoring all the SA,SLR's and BA Mastery assignments until they take another look at the assignment system altogether.

    Honestly a lot of the assignments, especially for Recon, are just annoying and rely on luck more than skill (people being in the right place at the right time etc)

    No your not the only one. I too have the same Issue, I've contacted EA support and they are aware of the problem and say its being worked on.
    Tran scrip of chat with EA.

    Anuj: I have checked with the team and they are saying that there is some issue with the assignment and they are working on it
    Anuj: The issues is that for some players it is visible and for some it is not
    you: so just have to wait then, ok bummer
    Anuj: So they are working on it so that all the players can play it
    Anuj: THe issue is almost fixed that's why i took that much time as i wanted to know th estatus
    Anuj: I have checked it and it will be solved very soon and you will get the ingame notification.

    So I guess we will just have to wait.

    Yeah I did that as well but I only have these left. Maybe I'll just leave the very last assignment out and carry on with the other rifles.

    Are you 100% sure about the hidden method? I'm nearing the VI Mastery for the MP 40 and I dread it.

    A few days later and still no unlock, doubt it's 100 on the back end, as this is too easy. Then may as well skip doing them all, if you'll get it without much effort.

    UPDATE:

    Finally managed to get the last mastery for the Model 8. I can confirm a 3. option being there, don't know whether it's 60 or 100 though. It feels more like ~60.

    I finished Sten Mastery VII yesterday. Best I could do was 18 hip fire kill in the objective area before rounds ended. Usually I finished with about 10 per round. I'm also not sure exactly how many it took to complete the hidden cumulative. But, for me it seemed like more than 60. The problem is you can't know until you leave the server. Until then, the assignment will not show completed. And there is some evidence/reports that the cumulative only tracks if you stay on the server and keep grinding. It might be resetting if you leave the server to check, every time. So, I could have done more than required.

    It does not reset, I've done it on multiple servers over the course of days.
