You can start planning which achievements to shoot for first in Battlefield 1.


Battlefield 1 is due for launch next week, but you can play it starting tomorrow.

As usual, as we get closer to big game launches, the list of in-game achievements and trophies start popping up. It’s the same with Battlefield 1, which has a sort of unremarkable achievements, save for one.

Basically, the vast majority of these are awarded for reaching multiplayer ranks, getting kills in certain ways, earning medals, and finishing single-player missions. There are 31 in total, and you can see them all below.

The interesting one I managed to find is called ‘Mightier than the Shovel’ and you get it for finding a hidden cavalry sword and using it to take down an enemy on the French countryside. This is a campaign achievement, as you may have guessed, but the description doesn’t mention which one exactly has this sword hidden.

The list also reveals that the campaign will feature a Call of Duty-style (possibly) hidden collectables called Codex Entries. There are also Field Manuals, though we’re not sure what these are.

Here they are, via True Achievements.
