View Full Version : Best place to get flag defender pin?

04-22-2010, 11:17 AM
Hey guys. Last night I skipped out on some glorious MP time and tried to score my last two pins. After playing a couple horrid Squad Deathmatch rounds (with Beeano stalking me, joining the other squads and making a great effort to shoot my ass :)) ) I finally scored my Squad Deathmatch win. The only pin I had left, I thought I had in the bag on White Pass, but with tons of foul words shouted to the heavens, I was passed over for the pin for some reason and my technique of hiding out around flag B was just bringing me pain and suffering. So, I thought I would put it out there...what's your technique to get that elusive flag defend pin? Anybody got a fairly easy system or hiding place that makes it work? Thanks!

To be honest, I got this on a Conquest map that was very unpopulated. I think it was like 3 vs 3. You can get all the flag defend/capture pins easily if the number of people in the game are small. I got those right away. For me, the hardest was getting the Naval Warfare pin. Finally got it and collected all pins, but that last one was a bee-yotch!

Look me up when you are on for that pin, I need it too.

Any map will do we just need to make sure we spot the flag and get some kills while defending.

Thanks for the replies guys! Teach, that's the problem with the stupid server system on the console is I can't find a game with that few of people. It just autojoins me to a map. :(

dinsdale, will do.

I want to get that damn pin. I think one of the best places may be one of the garages on a couple of the levels. Sit up on the second level as medic and pick guys off. Either that or C4 a flag as an assault guy so you can replenish your stock.

I WANT MY FLAG DEFENDER PIN!!!! This one is really hard to get and pissing me off! I swear I have had 4 kills at least two times!! Arrrggghhh. This is an obsession that won't go away. :( And to top it all off last night, while playing White Pass I got a Destruction 2.0 team kill...on a building in base Bravo or Charlie...while crouching in a corner of an empty base Alpha, playing with "whiskers" the rat, because no bad guys would come visit me. How the hell does THAT happen?!!

Leave c4 or mines at one flag and go off to defend another. Rinse and repeat. I believe you just need to defend four flags (correct me if Iím wrong). After getting a kill (or a few) at one flag move out to the next oneÖdonít hang around defending just one flag...I donít think the award will register in this way. I think I received 4 of these pins by staying active on the battlefield. Good luckÖ

Thanks dude, I will give that a try. I tried to send you an invite last night...must have been in the heat of battle, huh? I will catch ya next time! Here's hoping for my flag defend pin!!

your welcome, I saw the invite but got to it too late. I look forward to seeing you and others out there later or on another day...

Yeah, it's a bit hard for me because I am west coast. I think I got on later than most everyone, so by the time I am ramping up, most people are looking to call it quits. Thanks again for the flag defend tip. I will have to give that a shot on that fall village type map!
