Platform:Sony Playstation 4
Summarize your bug Some Premium Pass holders are unable to unlock the They Shall Not Pass weapons through the Assignment Challenges on some or all Specialists. (Photos attached)
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Try to complete every Assignment challenges until you notice you cannot see your progress going up and resetting to default. Works for most players.
What happens when the bug occurs? I cannot unlock the new They Shall Not Pass weapons, in my case apart from the Medic Class. Only the Support, Scout and Assault are only affected. This can be different with other players. In a match the Assignment challenge number counter seems to work fine however when in the Customize Soldier Loadout Menu it shows no number or % unlocked. I have seen other people with the same problem including friends, for example the Medic Assignment didn't unlock but Support worked for them and Medic worked fine for me but Support hasn't for me. Yes I'm a 10000% sure I have Premium, see photos attached. I feel like we shouldn't really have to do challenges anyway as it's not free content. I contacted EA support but they said they 'Did not have the tools to help me with this.' They told me to Restore Licences and re-install BF1 but this did not work me but I recommend trying anyway. Hope to see this fixed sometime soon or just scrap the whole Assignment Challenge idea to solve this instantly. Thanks for reading hope this helps. Anyone else please comment if you have the same problem. PSN: XxKliveKushxX

See both photos together. This shows my challenges are not showing on the Loadout Menu properly.

When it comes to weapons in video games, bigger is always better. At least that's what the masses seem to think. Seriously, how many times have you watched a Christmas Noob run around Operation Metro, spamming hip-fire rounds from their Type 88 LMG? Don't bother trying to count, because it's a lot. The funny part is, most of the time they find themselves getting owned by someone melting faces with their tiny little MP7 Sub Machine Gun.

Head Back to the Free Prima Games Dragon's Teeth Guide

Well, sometimes bigger is actually better, at least in the case of one of the brand new pistols available with the Battlefield 4 Dragon's Teeth DLC. Enter the Deagle 44. Capable of one-shot headshot kills, as well as massive damage in just about any circumstance, people are comparing it to the .44 Magnum. What sets these two powerful pistols apart, however, is that the Deagle 44 doesn't have a delay when you pull the trigger, and actually carries three more rounds if you count the one in the chamber.

Basically, the Deagle 44 not only promises to be a popular gun due to pop culture, it actually seems that it might have the chops to be a real contender in the Battlefield 4 sidearm division. Now that we've convinced you of why you want it, here's how you can get it.

Big Splash

As with most new weapons released via DLC, the Deagle 44 has to be unlocked by completing an assignment. Actually, you have to complete an assignment just to unlock the assignment you have to complete.

Your first step involves tackling Big Splash, an assignment that requires you to activate the floodgates on the Sunken Dragon map, as well as get 5 kills while swimming. Neither of those should be too hard, but you also have to keep in mind that everyone is trying to do the same thing.

Note: The floodgates are activated near the C point on the Chain Link game mode (pictured above). In fact, even on Conquest Large the C flag is in almost exactly the same place. Head to the large building next to the dam. Go up the two flights of stairs and you'll find the controls for the gate in a room at the top.

When it comes to activating the floodgates, our experience in five or six games of Sunken Dragon is that this is all anyone tries to do. Without exaggeration, we have never been alone in the room with the floodgates, even seeing as many as seven teammates standing around trying to do the same thing we were. This is complicated by the fact you can't just activate the gates an unlimited number of times. Once the gates are raised or lowered, they will enter a cool down period before it can be done again. This makes for some intense firefights at this location while everyone battles for position. As a final note, while we haven't tried to interact with the floodgates on all game modes, we have yet to get them working on anything except Conquest Large. That's not to say regular Conquest (or even Rush) won't work, we just haven't been able to try it as of yet.

Getting the five kills while swimming should be much easier. Just keep in mind, this is while swimming, not just while in the water. You can't stand up or it won't count. The strange thing is, there is only one Dragon's Teeth map that has enough water to make this easy, and that's Lumphini Garden (unless the Sunken Dragon floodgates are open). Even then, in a round of Chain Link, we were only able to get three kills, but just as easily could have gotten zero. To finish this portion of the assignment, we took our soldier to flood zone and banged it out in about five minutes using the SW40 Pistol. You can also C4 vehicles that are in the water, or even knife other soldiers swimming in the area. Either way, when this assignment is done you will have unlocked the Unica 6 pistol, an integral part of the next one.

Recoil Kinetics

Once the first assignment is down, Recoil Kinetics is next. This one might take awhile, but it's fairly straightforward. You must reach a rank of 10, but your only true test is to get 20 headshots using the Unica 6. If you're not trying to do this, it could take days or even weeks to pull off. However, if you want to speed things along, we suggest hopping into a game of Team Deathmatch and going to work. In fact, don't even run around with your Unica 6 out. Play the game as you normally would, waiting until you see an opportunity for the pistol headshot. It might take longer, but your kill to death ratio should stay intact, and you won't destroy any controllers by whipping them across the room. Not that we would ever do such a thing.

Upon completing both assignments, and with the Unica 6 and Deagle 44 in hand, the only thing left to do is decide which one is your favorite. For that, why not have a peek at the LevelCap video that we embedded below. He does a nice job summarizing exactly what you can expect from each one.
