There are SPECACT Insignia and also certain SPECACT Efficiency/Excellency PINs to achieve in Battlefield Bad Company 2.

How can they be achieved?

I guess this question includes a metaquestion: "What is a SPECACT?"

The SPECACT parts were added together with a DLC, the SPECACT Assault, Engineer, Medic and Recon individual DLC's, as well as a bundle DLC that included all four.

The SPECACT DLC for a particular class gave you an extra weapon, basically a "SPECACT" version of one of the better weapons for that class, unlocked and ready for you to play with. It also gave you a "Kit" which is basically a different Camo-suite for you to wear.

On the menu, after installing the DLC, you can select either "Assault" or "Assault+" class to select which kit to use. The weapon is available to both classes, but not all game modes.

For the four classes, the weapons are:

  • Assault: M16 SA
  • Engineer: UMP SA
  • Medic: MG3 SA
  • Recon: M95 SA

The excellency pins are awared for reaching a kill count of 8 in any round with the specact weapons.

The efficiency pins are awarded for reaching a kill streak of 5 in any game round with the specact weapons.

The Insignias are awarded for reaching a total kill count across game rounds of 100 with the specact kits.

On Xbox 360 and PS3, there are achievements and trophies that are awared for getting all 3 awards (excellency pin, efficiency pin and insignia) for a particular class. On Xbox 360 these are worth 15GP apiece.

  • Call me a noob, but what is a "DLC"? Commented Aug 4, 2010 at 21:52
  • I'm not sure, but "DownLoadable Content" fits.

  • Yes, sorry that I didn't clarify. DLC is exactly that, downloadable content. Commented Aug 8, 2010 at 12:18

A quick google search shows that they appear to require DLC .

Then you need to get:

100 kills using the weapon

Excellence pin
8 kills in a round with a weapon

Efficiency Pin
5 kill steak with the weapon
