Worst ribbon EVER! (Apart from stationary kills)

You have to kill a guy AS he is arming it. Not when he is close and not after he has armed it.
People claim C4 on MCOM works well to get it. I got a couple just by playing (AFTER about 700 games!)

i came real close to getting it today on Wake. 3 attackers dead trying to arm m-coms. plus some others as well. Could have done alot better if it hadn't been for the Hueycobra pilot circle strafing us constantly. Tunguska was being destroyed by the enemy before we could even use it. These guys walked all over us.

Squad rush, much easier to obtain the ribbon in that game type.

i did it on firestorm on the first base inside the building part, so many rushers just rush in to try plant and dont check the corners. if you stand up the stairs and look over the objective its a pretty easy one to get on that map. but getting 30/50 w/e the dog tag is... no chance till the patch unless its boosted or sit over Mcom's all game every game

you should get it if they are within 30 to 20m from and within that range
Make it similar to BBC2 it worked pretty well

That's how I've gotten my 11 ribbons. Takes patience and skill in hiding well yet close enough to hear the beeping to blow the C4 when it's being armed. The best map I've found sofar to do this on is Caspian Border. The first 2 M-Coms. The one in the building. Plant the C4. Hide behind the crates (behind your ammo box too so they can't see you) and you can usually get 2-3 defends before they finally get the M-Com. Also if you get a double kill they both sometimes count as an M-Com defence. Seems random though.

Easiest way to get this ribbon is to hide by the last m-comm defending on s-crossing.

NOT the m-comm in the building, but the one outside...there is concrete like 10-ft high protecting you and keeping you hidden. It is located at the wall in the opposite direction of the building that the other m-comm is in. If you are in the right place, you will be able to see the face of the m-comm, and your back will be to a wall, the concrete slab will be on your right, and your left side/front is exposed - you should be facing the m-comm.

Camp there and wait for dudes to come arm the m-comm. Must kill them before it is armed (they start arming it soon as they get there, so give them like 2 secs) - shoot/kill them

repeat 4x = ribbon obtained easily.

For srius.

Hope this helps you, Albatross-i

Let me know!

Edit to include...I noticed you also require your stationary emplacement ribbon. The easiest way to obtain this is defending on K-island. 2nd set of m-comms (gas station) - pwn fools on foot arming the m-comm, snipers in the rocks, tanks/keeps/air-vehicles approaching. Easiest place - mind you there are other options like Op-f-storm where you can grab this easily as well.

Right, but this dude is asking for help on how to get a ribbon he finds more difficult than you did/do.

My SPM suffered camping for this ribbon. Got it pre patch before explosives auto showed on mini map. Good luck.
Always knew it'd be like this when I was in the kitchen... PLAY TO WIN OR GET THE FUCK OUT!

Yeah, I lost a good number of tickets when I originally started trying to do this in different maps/places/ways...

The method I pointed out at S-Crossing is almost guarenteed ribbon in 1 life no problems.

Other m-comms/places/maps could be a pain and cost you madd frustration and tickets lol.

yes, this ribbon is a pain. i still dont have it either. i did not know you had to kill the person as they arm. i thought it did work the same as conquest defend ribbons where if they were near and you killed them it gave it to you. thanks for the updates and tips guys!
