To complete the Phantom Trainee assignment, you must be a Premium member for Battlefield 4. To unlock it, you need to go into the Leaderboards section on Battlelog and click the on the bottom left of the page. Once all the text populates, type in:
“epic dream worlds” (without the quotes)
Once you enter the password, the screen will be look like the photo below. If your screens look the same, you successfully unlocked the Phantom Trainee assignment.
However, in order to unlock Phantom Trainee, you must also first unlock (you do not need to complete) the Phantom Prospect assignment. The password for Phantom Prospect is:

To complete the Phantom Trainee assignment, you must complete the following objectives:
- Score 200 kills with any pistol
- Score 20 kills in a jet
- Get two Shotgun Ribbon in a round
For the pistol kills, you need to be in a ranked server. For the PC player, I personally recommended that you join a pistols-only server. For the console player, I only recommended that you join a Domination game mode server, but Obliteration is also a good choice. The G18 is a good choice, in addition to the P226, M9, and MP443.
Note: The Shorty 12G does not count.
For the jet kills, you can either use the attack or stealth jet; they both count. I personally recommended that you join Air Superiority server because….
If you’re having a hard time getting a kill, my best tip for you is to change up your strategy and work with other jets. If you see an enemy jet on your teammate’s six, go help him out. If you help out your teammate, you will get some easy kills, because some enemy pilots will get tunnel vision and only focus on your teammate.
If you are unable to find any Air Superiority servers, the second best solution is go on any Conquest server that has a lot of vehicles, like Altai Range and Silk Road. Keep in mind you need 20 kills on any type of enemy. This includes enemy infantry, tanks, boats, jets, helicopters, etc. The best tutorial for flying and dogfighting that I’ve found so far is by well-known Battlefield YouTube personality FrankieonPCin1080p. Frankie makes this tutorial back in Battlefield 3, but this still holds true in Battlefield 4. For Consoles players, skip to 2:38 of this video.
The final step to complete this assignment is getting two Shotgun Ribbons in a round (12 kills in a round with a shotgun). I highly recommend you join matches in Lost Islands on Domination. 12 kills on Lost Islands is easy like pie.
Note: You must do this in order. Because if you don’t follow these instructions in order, you may need to start over. Make sure you take care in following these steps, since Battlelog is known to have a few issues.
I hope my guide helps you complete the Phantom Trainee assignment and to use pistols and jets more effectively.
