Assignments are a feature in Battlefield 3 that reward players with additional content upon completion and were first introduced in the Back to Karkand expansion. The release of downloadable content has resulted in a total of 40 assignments (10 Back to Karkand, Close Quarters and Aftermath, 5 Armored Kill and End Game.)
Back to Karkand
Close Quarters introduced ten new assignments and were revealed through the June Maintenance of Battlelog.
Armored Kill introduced five new assignments which were revealed on September 3, 2012. Since the pack contains no new weapons, the assignments unlock vehicle specializations and, unlike most assignments in other expansions, can only be completed on the respective maps.
Aftermath introduced ten new assignments that were revealed on November 20, 2012 through maintenance on Battlelog. These pertain to the expansion's new weapon, the XBOW, and dog-tags.

— Battlelog description
The MTAR-21 is a weapon introduced in the Battlefield 3: Close Quarters expansion and is unlocked upon the completion of the My Own Terminator assignment. It was first seen in the killfeed of the Donya Fortress Gameplay trailer.
The weapon is more suited to very close range engagements, with the highest rate of fire of all the carbines. It suffers from considerable recoil and low damage at range, as well as poor accuracy, limiting its ability to perform at medium ranges. It is very effective as a hipfire weapon at closer ranges, especially if using a laser sight, killing in four shots to the average PDW's five shots. However, it must be noted the longest reload time of any available carbine at 3 seconds if reloaded with a bullet chambered, meaning that players must be highly aware of their surroundings while using this weapon.
Also, it has the second highest bullet velocity of any carbine (the M4A1 Carbine having the highest), although the high recoil and poor accuracy prevent it from being effective at long ranges.
Battlefield Premium members may equip the Airman or Woodland Oak camouflages upon the completion of the MTAR-21 Specialist assignment.
