Battlefield 4: China Rising
— Battlefield 4 Premium: Release calender
Battlefield 4: China Rising is the first expansion pack for Battlefield 4. It was revealed on May 21, 2013 on a Battlelog post stating that those who pre-ordered the game would receive the expansion at no extra cost. It features four maps on the Chinese mainland along with new vehicles and high-tech equipment.
Achievements and Trophies

- Recker's appearance on the cover shows him wearing a Calico Jack patch on his right shoulder, which is a morale patch normally worn by special operations soldiers, particularly the US Navy SEALs.
- The aircraft depicted flying overhead on the cover art is a Xian H-6 bomber, an upgraded Chinese counterpart to the Soviet Tu-16 Badger and the Chinese Bomber in the expansion.
- Before China Rising was officially announced, it was internally known as Drone Strike.
- A patch for the PC version of the game that was released on November 14, 2013 allowed players to complete the assignments required to unlock the expansion pack's five weapons and use them during gameplay before the expansion pack's release date.
- A newer version of China Rising was released in January 2014. This, however, caused a glitch that confused copies of Battlefield 4 with the original version of China Rising, regardless if the expansion pack had been installed or not. This restricted access for some players to play on maps of the expansion and the suspended use of all unlocked weapons and gadgets from the expansion. DICE stated to reinstall China Rising to solve the problem.
- Shortly after the release of China Rising, the Chinese government banned the sale of Battlefield 4, due to cultural encroachment.
Assignment 7 -Mother Of All Bombs
Prerequisite - Safe Raiding
On the China Rising Maps there is a trailer that will show a plane on it from time to time, normally near location “C” on PS3 and "D" on PS4 in conquest matches. When it shows this plane, approach the trailer from the side with the stairs and hit when prompted to enter the trailer.
Now in the bomber find some targets to kill. To release the JADM, find your target(s) and use to release the weapon. It does take a few moments to get there, so lead your target if it is moving.
I found this very difficult to get kills as I got many hits, but no kills (Normal Mode), so I found another way to accomplish the requirement. The trick to this is to set some mines around before you head for the plane. As long as you are in the bombing run when they kill someone you will be given credit for achieving this.
Another strategy here is to bomb the trailer you enter for the bomber. Many times enemies will be waiting for you to come out and make themselves an easy target. Just be careful, if you are in hardcore you can kill teammates or yourself if you leave the trailer before the bombs hit.
After playing more and more hours, here is another strategy. When you get in the bomber let your first 3 missiles fly right away in the direction of where you think the enemy is. In the mean time start taping your "Spot" button and listen for the audible telltale of where the enemies are. If you let your missiles go early enough you will reload before fully crossing the map and get off another 3 shots on the same bomber pass

You also need to destroy an enemy bomber as well, this can be done with any weapon you are comfortable shooting a plane down with. I personally prefer using the Mobile AA with Missiles.
Reward - Cruise Missile
Assignment 8 - Multi Talent
You need to have your classes ready so you can swap between kits as needed. I would recommend doing this in rush or conquest. In a single round you need to get a kill with a sniper rifle, assault rifle, LMG, and a hand grenade.
Now here it the pain, it is a single round! This does not need to be done on a China Rising Map, it can be any map or any mode. If you are a rush defender they come to you and if you lose your life, ohh well. This is a personal choice one, you have to do it with the weapons and mode you are comfortable in.
I started with the grenade as it is the hardest one for me to get.
Reward - MTAR-21
Assignment 9 - I'm Dynamite
Prerequisite - Eyes in the Sky
Here come those pesky bombers again. To earn this you will need to earn the Bomber Delivery ribbon 3 times, get 20 UCAV kills and score a multi-kill.
To get your bomber ribbon, the best map appears to be silk road as there are a lot of tanks to kill and give you an opportunity to kill 2 for 1. It takes 2 missiles to kill a tank in hardcore. A lot of players try to come to the middle base in the map where the bomber trailer is, so you may want to spam that area when you get the bomber and then give it a chance to reload. The other maps are a little harder to get multiple kills in a game, but once you get the cruise missile (15 bomb kills) you will also have another weapon available to you by hitting
If you are going to boost this, get 3-4 players on the other team to take a LAV or helicopter to a per-defined spot on the map and hit them hard with the bombs and you can cut down on the time for this.
There are mixed emotions on the UCAV as it is very overpowered at this time (Since Patched). You can either fly it directly into people or use the remote detonation function and frag people with it. With the frag mode you will have an easier time killing people in hardcore.
Video Intended for how to use, the reload option was patched by path 1.05
Here is a video from M-Easy on the UCAV:
Battlefield 4 UCAV cheesiness - YouTube
December 18th, 2013 - DICE Update
"Fix for the SUAV (introduced in the China Rising expansion pack) not exploding when hitting enemy soldiers. While these indeed should be deadly, they were never designed for "road killing" opponents."
Reward - Air Burst
Assignment 10 - Middle King
Prerequisite - Safe Raiding
Nothing Major to this one, just play China Rising Maps for 10 hours, get 5 five kill streaks, and roadkill someone with the SUAV. To complete this you must get a kill with the bomber, so see Death From Above first. This will be available to complete once you complete the assignment “Safe Raiding”.
If you are going for all the trophies you will have to get a kill with the SUAV Mini Kamikaze. To get your kill with the SUAV I would recommend that you get your kill in hardcore as this will be a Road kill and in normal servers you will have a harder time killing someone with it. This weapon is available to the recon soldier.
