The way I got it to complete on PS4 was just to check it when you die. If it hasn't tracked join another server.
Apparantly some objectives don't track on some servers.
I know it's not a good answer but EA aren't answering and this worked for me.
I finally progressed and I think I figured out the problem, when using one of the “new assault weapons” ie Ag/m 42 or the ribeyrolles 1918 it wouldn’t track progress. When I switched back to the SMLE it tracked as expected. Not sure if it was a new weapon issue or not, but I made it past.
@WlkrTex4sR4ngeractually did post the solution for me: I am normally using the SMLE not making progress in the assigment. Rereading his post I decided to used the Sturmgewehr 1-5 instead of the Turner SMLE - and Bam! I was able to get the 5-thousand damage points in no time. So if an Assigment does not work, it might be worth to change the weapon you are using.
