Patrol duty is easy to get with scout that has camouflage skill + binoculars.

Also have a few with KV-5  :glasses:

The higher the risk the better the reward, just like in business. They wouldn't give a full 2000 extra experience to let's say a sniper medal so it's fine. Patrol duty is quite often easy to get in my T62A, the camo rating does the job nicely.

I got one of them with my VK2801 but since that vehicle is now completely different and unplayable in the old style I doubt I'll get a new one. The other one I got with my E-50 playing my best match with it ever getting 4 medals in total :)

Negrepping is for offensive posting, not opinions you disagree with

Hello all
I would like to announce I'm never lucky in these events  :teethhappy:

I always seem to collect the medals the night before, or just after the mid week medal hunt finishes  :mellow:
So for all who don't achieve the medal I feel your pain  :blinky:
Regards

One of more important medals in game, IMO  Respect for rewarding wise spotters who don't scout to death in first two minutes! Good special, got myself two on week end and was much pleased :)
edit: Would be even more glorious if the spot damage dealers get some reward in combo with patrol special.

Someone give this guy a dictionary, he again mispronounced all foreign words.

Otherwise, a nice video as usual.

Is Patrol Duty broken?

I had a couple of games where I managed to assist in damaging/killing at least 6 enemies, most of the times more and didn´t get a single badge.
I don't care about the badge.. but the 2kxp for crew training would help :)
Are there parameters that are not in the description? Do you have to survive to get it? Do you have to cause a minimum damage of XXXX to get it?

Spoiler

Guys, for future reference, To get Patrol Badge, you need to be the one detecting them not just damaging them.

Taken from the actual post

"Achieve the Patrol Duty medal, by helping your team damage at least 6 enemy vehicles by detecting them"

madmatone you only detected 3

That is not correct. You need to look at the ingame description:

Quote

Patrol Duty
  • Help your team damage at least 6 enemy vehicles by detecting them.
  • The player must be the only one who detected the enemy vehicles at the moment when they were damaged.
  • If two or more players have equal number of enemy vehicles detected and damaged, the achievement is granted to the player who has earned more XP in the battle.
The initial detection does not matter for this achievement, you need "Damage upon detecting" on at least 6 different enemies and must be the only one who kept them spotted at the time.
