Battlefield 4 Walkthrough Chapter 6 - Tashgar (Xbox One)

Tashgar is the sixth mission featured in the Battlefield 4 Campaign.

WalkthroughEdit

Forced to continue on foot for two days, Tombstone makes their way down the mountain, forced to hunt for food to survive. They commandeer a jeep and drive to Tashgar in western China, finding it under siege by both Chinese and Russian forces. They eventually locate Major Greenland, who commands the remainder of US ground forces in Tashgar. She states that the Russian mobile anti-air positions have put them at a disadvantage.

Tombstone volunteers to demolish the Tashgar Dam to flood the area and destroy Russian AA positions in exchange for transportation to the USS Valkyrie. Using Irish's strategic placement of explosive charges, they are successful in their task and, as promised by Greenland, transported to the Suez Canal by air.

CollectiblesEdit

  • Outside of the Molina's outpost is a cluster of a blue building and smaller white building. From the roof of the blue building to the white building, a jump must be made. The A-91 rests on the northeast corner of the building.
  • To the left of the entrance of the park is a car wreckage. The M249 is sitting on its bipod between the back-most car and the tree.
  • After exiting the tunnel, the AEK-971 is found on the top of the concrete building on the pile of green boxes.
  • Underneath the same concrete building, there is a white trailer-truck with a blue cargo crate. Using explosives to blow up the truck will reveal the Destruction Enthusiast Dog Tag pinned to the front of the exploded crate.
  • When first getting onto the dam there will be a high and low path. On the high path, the Upstream Swimmer Dog Tag is found by getting onto the roof of the portable and jumping onto the scaffolding nearby.

TriviaEdit

  • The mission is named after the city of Kashgar in the Xinjiang region of western China. The reason as to why it is called Tashgar is unknown.
  • In the second village-space before the park, there is a blue crate on a white trailer-truck. Despite most of the map appearing in grayscale, the truck appears in a vibrant tint of blue. There are many more of these trucks, but only the particular one in the second village-space will appear blue on the map.
  • The AEK-971 collectible may occasionally spawn inside the boxes. Parts of it will protrude, and it can still be picked up.
  • Oddly, the RGF is equipped with Mk153 SMAW (used by western forces) rockets despite the fact that there are many RPG-7V2 rockets laying around.
  • As with in Baku, the Russian Soldiers have Chinese flag patches on their arms.
    • In addition, this mission has enemies that use the PLA Engineer skin, despite using Russian weaponry (PP-2000) and speaking Russian.
  • Once the player reaches Old Town, there are three conversations that the player can hear as an easter egg in reference to fan-made animated series Battlefield Friends made by animation team Hank and Jed. (Note: Even if the player turns on the subtitles, the conversations will not have subtitles appear on the screen.)[1]
    • The first conversation can be heard from two Marines standing near the wreckage of a car. After greeting Tombstone squad, one Marine (voiced by Nate Panning, who voices the "Assault/Medic" in the show) mentions that he wants to take a nap, which annoys the other Marine (voiced by Jon Etheridge, who voices the "Engineer" in the show). The former argues that they are out of combat and need to take a break, while the latter argues that they are in war and that there is no time to take a break.
    • The next conversation occurs between two Marines standing near a blue door (and where Hannah and Irish are waiting as the player listens in on the first conversation). One of the Marines (voiced by Etheridge) asks the other Marine (voiced by Panning) if he has any cigarettes. The latter replies that he does have cigarettes, but refuses to give them to the former.
    • The third and last conversation occurs between two Marines standing to the right of the player as they are approaching the table Hannah and Irish are waiting at. One Marine (voiced by Etheridge) complains about being tasked to getting rid of rubble on the road in order for their convoy to move further, while the other Marine (voiced by Panning) mentions how much he likes doing it. The latter's main reason for doing so is because of his "bum leg" (one of his legs is injured). The former complains more as the latter tries to reassure him that what they are doing is just as helpful to their cause as fighting in the frontlines.
  • The Destruction Enthusiast Dog Tag is a reference to Battlefield: Bad Company, the dogtag features the smiley face grenade pin.
  • This mission and Baku are the only two times the player fights Russian forces in the singleplayer campaign.
  • Arabic graffiti can be seen throughout the urban areas, including "!للشعب" (for the people!) and "تحرر" (liberation). This is incorrect, though, as Uyghur is the language of Kashgar (Tashgar).
  • Inside a room which the player passes in order to get to Major Greenland's MRAP there are several bags laying around which have "Tax shrimps, Certified by: Works on my machine" written on the front.
  • The mission's internal development name was known as Dam City.
