    I really enjoy the challenges, and I think it mixes up the game.

    I guess I'm the only one who enjoyed the MP-18 challenge lol. But I love that gun so I didn't find it that hard.

    I got me to use guns and a class that I never really use, forcing me to change the way I play, which was nice. I enjoyed the challenges, made the game a bit more interesting to play with a clear personal objective. However, I did find having the use the Automatico kinda frustrating, by far my least favourite gun in the game, can barely hit anything with it lol.

    It forced me to use some guns I don't normally use, and it didn't take THAT long. I really don't see what all the complaining is about.

    But I do hope that DICE doesn't make future assignments more detailed, weird, and/or map-dependent. BF4 had some really annoying unlock assignments.

    Ok now I'm angry! Been struggling with the 8.35 challenge. Just started to get the hang of the gun on fort de vaux. I had 10 kills with it already in the round and still had a half a round left, so I would of completed it. But I got disconnected from the sever! Raw!

    The problem is that some of them, namely the X number of kills with a particular gun/gadget,l ones, are still too specific and having multiple people going for them at the same time is actually quite detrimental to the gameplay. I've had multiple rounds that have just felt sluggish because people seem to be preoccupied with the assignments.

    They aren't as bad as the BF4 ones but they should really think about ditching the idea of forcing specific weapons and gadgets on people and focus on team support actions/making the kill requirements less tied to a certain weapon variant.

    I enjoy them personally.

    I've completed both for support so far, but i've only had a couple of hours with the new DLC. Medic & assault next. Not looking forward to headshots with MP-18 though haha.

    The Mp18 optical is a challenge to get heads shots with, I think I'll have a service star or 2 before I get 20 heads shots.

    When I was completing the challenge I finished a Frontlines match with 76 kills and only 9 were head shots. I'm weird and like using the MP18 optical anyway so I wasn't as annoyed as some of my friends but it was still a bit difficult to get those head shot finishers.

    i dont know why people struggle so hard with that. Im definitely not belonging to the elite of the community but i made the 20 headshots in 2 rounds(8 in a domination and 12 in a frontlines game)

    Haha, I really hated unlocking the GOL. But I had fun though, using it to snipe people trying to unlock it.

    For me most weapon unlocks pales in comparison to unlocking the Phantom bow and the stupid hunt for little packages...

    You should of only had enough warbonds to unlock all the previous content.

    I don't like them. Why create a warbonds and class leveling system if they're not going to be used?

    At first I didn't realise they added this feature back for BF1, I just wondered why I was getting done by so many shotguns lol

    i didn't really like nor dislike them - i feel like they're way too easy to the point that I'm wondering why even have them to unlock paid content in the first place? i like the idea of challenges in the game finally, but those were just kinda annoying, not because of difficulty

    I don't understant people ocmplaining about the MP18 challenge? I played one game with maybe 25 kills and got 6 headshots. It's not that bad?

    I actually don't hate them.
    I don't feel obliged to rush them asap, so I do them when I want to try something different.

    I like how they force me out of my comfort zone.
    I decided to unlock the lebel sniper today, even if I don't plan to use it anytime soon. Requirement: 5 headshots in a round with the russian sniper. I didn't fire a single shot with any sniper variant of any rifle before the assignment, so I'm not used to play with a bright neon shining on my face. Got two terrible rounds with it (almost last in score with barely positive kd), then I tried it in a frontline match on Verdun. Went 34-5, completed the assignment and I actually enjoyed using it. So the assignment made me try a new (for me) playstyle.

    I also realized the periscope is a pretty decent gadget.

    Got both Chauchat versions, the shotgun and the sniper so far.

    Just finished last primary weapon one now. the one for the Sjögren Inertial Factory shotgun and I didn't like the model a-10 slug seems really slow firing, Sarah Connor fired her shotgun faster and she had been stabbed in the shoulder by the T-1000. It doesn't seem to be that good at close range or mid range. I should just git gud. the Sjögren Inertial Factory itself I've only had one game using its seems worth putting up with the model a-10 slug to unlock the gun

    The challenge to get the Ribeyrolles 1918 Factory, 20 headshots with the MP-18 optical took some time and I think went up more than a few stars but got there. The Ribeyrolles 1918 Factory I'm still getting the hang off the best way to use it

    Found the 5 headshots with the Russian 1895 sniper rifle was boring to get the Lebel Model 1886 sniper how do people put up with that play style, each to their own. Probably will not us it as I like the carbine and infantry rifles It was my first time using the trench scope

    The Lebel Model 1886 Infantry challenge was fun as I really like the Gewehr M.95 Infantry and I'm alway using the flare gun. can see the rifle being good on some of the more open maps but maybe not Amiens. but it has a lovely note to it

    RSC 1917 Factory unlocked fast using the M1907 SL Sweeper to get 50 kills didn't take that long and I always run with the health pack and syringe

    RSC 1917 Optical challenge rest itself which was pain as the Autoloading 8 .35 Factory is not one of my favorite guns and will probably not bother with it again as for both the variants they are a good rifles and I am going enjoy them because I've got a feeling that the cry for a nerf won't take long.

    Chauchat Low Weight is one of my new favourite gun and the first to complete and not much of a challenge as I don't mind the lewis gun and I'm very generous with the ammo.

    Chauchat Optical first half with the mortar was pain kept getting hit markers with it but got there, second half wasn't much of a challenge as I love the M1909 Benét–Mercié Optical

    I think for the next set off challenges need to be a bit more of a challenge but nothing too obscure so people are still playing the objectives, maybe link them to defending and capturing objectives

    Any maps I think but make sure you use the right variants, I wasted a game's worth of kills with the wrong lewis gun variant
