Version History (VERH) ============================================================================= Version 1.0: FAQ is published to GameFAQs website. (July, 2011) Version 1.5: Fixed some spelling and grammar issues. Annhilation section almost completely revamped and is more specific so then it is easier to complete the challenges. ============================================================================== 2. Introduction (INTRO) ============================================================================== Hello and welcome to another of my FAQs. This FAQ has to do with getting trophies/achievements in Call of Duty: Black Ops. The point of this FAQ is to show the best way in achieving trophies on the PS3 or achievements on the Xbox 360. Some are exclusive to one of the systems, like the Platinum trophy for the PS3. The following format will be used to better organize the info of trophies/ achievements: Name: Name of trophy/achievement Trophy type: Bronze,Silver,Gold,or Platinum Gamer score: Between 5-100 G Description: Description of trophy Difficulty: Between very easy and extreme. Based off my opinion. Strategy: How to get trophy/achievement. Finally one word of note: SPOILERS AHEAD!!!! The following guide may reveal actual in-game events which could spoil the whole story. When reading this guide, be aware that part or most of the game may be spoiled in the reading of this FAQ. You have been warned. ============================================================================== 3. Veteran Campaign Disclaimer (Vet) ============================================================================== Before I go on listing the trophies/achievements you need to be aware of the Veteran mode. While most people say to just go ahead and do the campaign on Veteran, I hghly recommend you do it on regular or recruit a few times so that you can familarize yourself where the enemies are and what are the best places to get through the mission. Veteran mode is extremely hard as you not only have decreased health, but the enemies can kill you in 1-3 hits with any weapon and they are much smarter. While not as bad as World at War, it is still very hard and you may take an hour in some cases before completing the mission and you may become homicidal. Also there is a glitch where if you save and come back to the mission, you may not receive the trophy/achievement and will force you to complete the mission again, so be very careful. One more thing, I will not give an in depth guide on how to complete each mission on Veteran. There are other guides that do that and this is for achievements only so I'm sorry. The best advice I can give you is use cover effectively, don't blindly rush into enemies, but don't be too slow or else grenades will be thrown. Use your given weapons and smokes to their fullest potential and finally be prepared to die...alot. ============================================================================== 4. Trophy/Achievements (TRACH) ============================================================================== Name: Death to Dictators Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Take Down Castro with a Headshot Difficulty: Easy Strategy: This may seem hard, but its very easy. Just aim for his head. Not only that, but it's the only way to kill Castro. :X Name: Sacrifice Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Ensure your squad escapes safely from Cuba Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Self-explanatory, just complete "Operation 40" on any difficulty. Name: Vehicular Slaughter Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Destroy all enemies on Vehicles in Vorkuta Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: This is an annoying achievement, but its not terribly difficult. Destroying the vehicles makes this easy as you'll often kill the crew it came on. After you shoot off the three slingshots, there will be two parked trucks. Destroy the trucks to kill most of the enemies and kill off the rest around it. After that you will not see another vehicle til after you get the Death Machine. This is like shooting fish in a barrel. Just destroy the trucks with the Death Machine and you'll easily kill the crew on it. Before tear gas is thrown at you, make sure you destroy the three trucks in the background or else you will miss your achievement. After that your on a motorbike. You will be chased by other foes on motorbikes, but luckily for you your shotgun has god like range and accuracy, so it shouldn't be hard to dispatch the enemies on the motorbikes. Only thing is there is a truck you need to destroy. It blows up with one shot, but it still can be easily missed. Then when your on the truck with the minigun, blow up the trucks and motorbikes pursuing and make sure you take out the helicopter above you. By the time you see the train, you should have gotten the achievement. This may take a few tries, but don't give up! Name: Slighshot Kid Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Destroy all slingshot targets in three attempts. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: This is another easy one, just destroy each of the buildings with the slingshot in the mission "Vorkuta". The easiest way is to put the lowest part of reticle on the target and launch. It should destroy the building. If not restart. Name: Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Escape Vorkuta Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Complete the mission "Vorkuta" on any difficulty. Name: VIP Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: receive Orders from Lancer Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: Um ya this is very easy, actually you do nothing. Just watch the long cinematic called "U.S.D.D." on any difficulty. Name: A Safer Place Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Sabotage the Soviet space program Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Complete "Executive Order" on any difficulty. This may be easy, but this mission will come back to haunt you. :D Name: Tough Economy Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Use no more than 6 TOW guided missiles to destroy the tanks in the defense of Khe Sanh Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: This isn't all too hard more that it can be frustrating. Basically destroy all 6 tanks without missing in "S.O.G". There will be red diamonds around the tank. Just watch out for obstacles and if you miss you will have a limited time to fly back into the tank. Name: Looks Don't Count Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Break the Siege in the Battle of Khe Sanh. Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: Complete "S.O.G." on any difficulty. This can potentially be hard as there are so many things going on. People shooting at you, tanks, and people trying to strangle you, and going up the hill can be hard as well. Name: Raining Pain Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Rack up a bodycount of 20 NVA using air support in Hue City. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: This is really easy. Just use the helicopter as often as possible and even if you don't you should get a lot of kills when you use it when your suppose to. While the helicopter is unavailable for part of the mission, you do get it back, but you should not have a hard time getting this. Name: The Dragon Within Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Kill 10 NVA with Dragon's Breath rounds. Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: This is really easy. At the beginning of "The Defector" you get a Spas-12 Shotgun which has incendiary rounds, which lights someone on fire, killing them instantly. This is really easy since the shotgun has big range and kills anyone in one hit. You should get the achievement before you leave the building. Name: SOG Rules Trophy type: bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Retrieve the Dossier and the defector from Hue City. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Complete the "The Defector" on any difficulty. Name: Heavy Hand Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Use the Grim Reaper to destroy the MG emplacement. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Just after you destroy the ZPU in "Victor Charlie", keep the Grim Reaper as you will encounter a MG emplacement. Fire the Grim Reaper at it and it will destroy it in one hit. Just don't miss! =p Name: Up Close and Personal Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Silently take out 3 VC. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: During the course of "Victor Charlie", you will have to knife 3 VC silently. One is on the boat, one is in a bunk bed, and one is just eating an apple. The last one can be slightly hard as if your not careful, he may notice you before you knife him, but you should expect no problems otherwise. Name: Double Trouble Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Use only dual wield weapons to escape Kowloon. Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: Not very hard at all, but the problem is you can't aim with dual weapons which may make it hard to kill enemies that are more than 20 feet away from you. Although don't worry about the weapon part as there are many dual wield weapons throughout the whole mission. Name: Broken English Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Escape Kowloon Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Complete "Numbers" on any difficulty. Name: Lord Nelson Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Destroy all targets and structures while making you way up the river. Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: This can potentially be very frustrating. Basically destroy every boat and building you come across. There are 55 buildings throughout the boat section of "Crash Site." Basically fire off a few rockets at each building and watch it blow to kingdom come. Just keep firing rockets until the building can no longer uh explode. Also there are buildings at the final boat battle so don't forget them! Name: Never Get Off the River Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 20 G Description: Find the Soviet connection in Laos. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Complete "Crash Site" on any difficulty. Name: Pathfinder Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 50 G Description: Guide the squad through the Soviet outpost without them getting killed. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: While in the Blackbird in the mission "WMD" try not to get your people killed while guiding them. Really easy, just follow the orders given to you. Name: Mr. Black Op Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 50 G Description: Enter the Soviet relay station undetected. Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: In the mission "WMD" kill all enemies without alerting the station. This is just after you piloted the Black Bird. This can be annoying as one slip up will cost you. I highly recommend you use a crossbow as its a one hit kill and it will be harder to get noticed. Just after the squad goes by, kill the enemies. Your friendlies will help dispatch them. Then you will come up to the relay station. Go just behind the ledge and you will see a garage. Kill the one guard wandering around just outside the garage, then kill the one sitting on the barrel. Shooting the person fixing the machine will get you spotted. Once you taken out the enemies in the garage, look to your right and you'll see two guard working on the truck. Kill the one on the windshield and one of your friendlies should kill the other. If not, kill the one workin next to the cab of the truck, then kill the one on the windshield. After that go past the truck and you'll see someone in another garage but DON'T SHOOT HIM. There is a guard on the station looking down. Take him out before you continue. With him gone, head up to the ledge and kill the two enemies down to your left. Turn right and kill the guard wandering outside the garage and one who is working in the garage. If you miss him, don't worry, he won't notice you...lol. One more to go and this can be hard. Just before the catwalk, zoom in and you'll see a guard. Dispatch him to receive your achievement. Name: With Extreme Prejudice Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 25 G Description: Get to the POW compound in the Hind using only rockets. Difficulty: Medium Strategy: Done on the mission "Payback." This can be kinda hard and I recommend you do this on recruit. Your rockets aren't as helpful as the minigun on your hind, but your rockets still do a fair amount of damage. Just be accurate and keep your fingers away from the trigger. =3 Name: Russian Bar-B-Q Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Incinerate 10 enemies with the flamethrower attachment in the POW compund. Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: Not too hard. On "Payback" just pick up the AK-47 with the flamethrower. Only bad part is that it has a very close range and can make it hard to kill people with. Name: Light Foot Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 30 G Description: Escape the ship with 2:15 on the timer in Veteran Difficulty: Hard-Very Hard Strategy: On "Project Nova" you have to escape the ship with 2:15 left after planting the bomb. This can be difficult because not only do you have a small window, but it's Veteran, which complicates things. Just before you plant the explosive, make sure you kill as many enemies on the catwalk as possible above you. After that, shoot the support beam to your left and run for life. Just keep running and don't stop unless an enemy is in your way. You should come up to a checkpoint. If you have about 2:30 or more, your good! If not, restart. Head to the bow of the boat and grapple onto the railing. Do this on your Veteran campaign. Might as well. Name: Some Wounds Never Heal Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Escape the Past Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Complete "Project Nova" on any difficulty. Name: I Hate Monkeys Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Kill 7 monkeys in under 10 seconds in the rebirth labs. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: On "Rebirth" you will come across some caged monkeys. Just before the room with the gas chamber, throw two grenades to the back of the room to the right of entrance and that should get your achievement. Also I believe throwing a grenade in the gas chamber will also net you your achievement. :S Name: No Leaks Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 50 G Description: Make it Through the NOVA 6 gas without dying on Rebirth Island Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: On Hudson's side of "Rebirth" you have to survive without letting NOVA 6 gas into your suit. While this may seem simple, there is a problem: your health doesn't regenerate which means you'll keep your damage and the more damage you receive, the more your suit gets cracked until you die after a certain amount of hits. Just be very cautious and use your Enfield with IR scope on it. Makes the mission very easy. Name: Clarity Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: Crack the code Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: Complete the cinematic "Revelations" on any difficulty. This time instead of doing nothing, you get to move! :O Jeez slow down Treyarch! Name: Double Whammy Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Destroy both the helicopters with one Valkyrie Rocket from the deck of the ship. Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: On the mission "Redemption" destroy both helicopters with one rocket. This can be difficult. Either wait for the helicopters to be close to each other and detonate the rocket or hope that one of the helicopters crashes into the other one. Name: Stand Down Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 35 G Description: Complete the campaign on any difficulty. Difficulty: Medium Strategy: Self-explanatory. Hope you did this on recruit! Name: BLACK OP MASTER Trophy type: Gold Gamer score: 100 G Description: Complete the campaign on Hardened or Veteran difficulty. Difficulty: Extreme Strategy: Easily the one of the hardest achievements. Just complete the campaign on Veteran since you're going to have to anyways. This includes "U.S.D.D." and "Revelations." This trophy will really push your limits as a gamer and as a human being. If you get this, Platinum is all yours! Name: Frag Master Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Kill 5 enemies with a single frag grenade Difficulty: Medium Strategy: Only done on campaign. There are a few approaches. On "Operation 40," just after leaving the mansion, a truck with a full crew will come by. Throw a frag at the nearby red barrel and the explosion should kill them all. Another way is to play "The Defector" and the room just after the helicopter shoots out the room, you'll come to a room full of overturned tables. Cook a grenade, but don't throw. Walk up and more enemies should spawn just as you kill yourself. While this may take a few attempts, you should get it eventually and there is a checkpoint nearby. Name: Sally Likes Blood Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Demonstrate killer economic sensibilities by taking down 3 enemies with a single bullet. Difficulty: Medium Strategy: While this may seem hard since there are very few places to kill 3 people with one bullet, this can easily be done on Zombie mode. Basically pick up the "Insta-kill" drop, line up the zombies and fire a bullet. Easy as that. If you do not like zombies, the mission "Numbers" has a few places where you can get the achievement, especially down the hallway just after the first weapons cache. Use the PSG1 for the best results! Name: Unconventional Warfare Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Use the explosive bolts to kill 30 people Difficulty: Easy Strategy: You get the crossbow in only two missions: "Executive Order" and "WMD." It is easier to do it on "Executive Order" since there are more people to kill and even if you die, your kill count stays the same. Name: Cold Warrior Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Complete "Operation 40", "Vorkuta", and "Executive Order" on Veteran difficulty. Difficulty: Very Hard-Extreme Strategy: This is probably the second hardest achievement in the game just because of "Executive Order." The hardest part in "Executive Order" are the tunnels and by god are they hard. You have little cover and there are enemies shooting from all directions. Use your smoke grenades as they help out alot in the tunnels. "Operation 40" is ok and the "Vorkuta" is not as bad either except the part when Reznov is getting the blowtorch. Name: Down and Dirty Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Complete "S.O.G" and "The Defector" on Veteran difficulty. Difficulty: Very Hard Strategy: "The Defector" honestly wasn't too hard at all. "S.O.G" however is a nightmare. It is very easy for you to get killed, with the hardest part being the siege on the hill. There are a great deal of enemies and there is so much stuff going on. Other than that its ok, just watch out for the enemies in the trenches though. Name: It's Your Funeral Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Complete "Numbers", "Project Nova", and "Victor Charlie" on Veteran difficulty. Difficulty: Very Hard Strategy: "Numbers" can give you a tough time since there are enemies throughout the buildings on different floors and some come equip with snipers. Also the last part of the mission can be difficult since all you have is a pistol. "Project Nova" can also giva ya a hard time, especially the battle in the boat, but other than that its pretty tamed. "Victor Charlie" isn't that bad really. Patience is all that is needed since your silent half the time. Name: Not Today Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Complete "WMD", "Crash Site", and "Payback" on Veteran difficulty. Difficulty: Hard-Very Hard Strategy: "WMD" is pretty easy until towards the end when there are many enemies shooting at you. "Crash Site" is also pretty easy. Finally "Payback". This is the hardest of the three since the cave system is weird in the begining and the end and the fact the Hind can get damaged very quickly. Name: Burn Notice Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 25 G Description: Complete "Rebirth" and "Redemption" on Veteran difficulty. Difficulty: Very Hard-Extreme Strategy: "Rebirth" is really hard. To begin it is very long. Mason is silent for the first half before he has to fight through the labs, which is a one big cluster...uh ya lol. Hudson doesn't fair much better since you go down in about 5-6 hits. Just spam the Enfield IR. It's your guardian angel. Once you reach the labs, it is somewhat easy, just watch out for the people in the gas chamber room above you. "Redemption" doesn't fair much better. It's easy until you go down further into the ship. There are many enemies on different tiers and they are extremely smart and it doesn't get easier until just before you confront the final enemy. (Fail spoiler censor is fail) After this your done with Veteran...for good! Name: Closer Anaylysis Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Find all hidden intel Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: This is not hard, just very time consuming. Luckily for you your reading this guide. :D All missions but "U.S.D.D" have 3 intel. Here are the locations for each mission: Operation 40 1. Intel is right in the beginning of the mission. Just keep going forward until you see the intel. It's on top of a box near the RPG. 2. Just after killing Castro head into the burning manor and turn right into a bedroom. It should be on a nightstand. 3. The final intel is in the hangar of the airfield. Head up the ladder to obtain it. Vorkuta 1. This intel comes just after the MG tower is destroyed. Follow Reznov into the building. Head upstairs to find the intel near the comm. 2. After Sergei dies, open the door, but look to your right and you'll see a dark hallway next to the stairs. Enter it to find the intel. 3. The last intel is in the storage area with the motorbikes. Don't ride them. The intel is on one of the racks near Reznov. Executive Order 1. First one is really easy. While your clearing the first building you come to, head to the third floor. Intel is located on the table to your right. 2. This is when you reach the building to stop the rocket. After you blow up the wall, enter the building and you'll see the intel on top of one of the consoles...just sitting there...alone... 3. The last one is in the tunnels. Keep going until you come across a large room with a bunch of tables in it. Keep going into the tunnel, but then turn right into the command room, which has a bunch of control panels. It is located near the exit. S.O.G. 1. The first intel is located while you are defending the hill. Basically run past the detonators and head to an ammo cache. The intel should be among the ammo cache. 2. This next intel can be quite tricky. After you have thrown down the three napalm barrels, look to your left and head into one of the bunkers. The intel will be sitting right in there. 3. Just after you saved Woods from dying, head into the tunnel, but look around in the tunnel to locate the final intel in the command area. The Defector 1. Just after meeting Reznov just before the exit to the parking lot, look to your right to pick up the intel in the room. 2. The second intel can be easily missed. Just after you call for fire support go into one of the houses where the road turns right on your left. It should be on a table. 3. The last one is easy. Once you reach the LZ, search the destroyed building ahead to find the final intel. Numbers 1. The first intel is in the starting room. Just look to your right on the table. 2. The second one is located just after you slid down the roof. Go straight ahead and look to your left where the wall is. The intel is located there. 3. The last one is located just before you fall down through the scafold. Look behind you to find the last intel. Project Nova 1. The first intel is located after you cleared the first building. Its on the second floor on a table in the corner. 2. The second one is located in the hangar with the rocket. Check the small room to obtain it. 3. The last intel is located while you are escaping the ship. Just before the last set of stairs where you grapple the railing, look to your right to find the last intel. Victor Charlie 1. First intel is located just after you killed the sleeping VC. When you enter into the room where the guard eating the apple is, look to your left. It should be in the corner. 2. The second intel may be hard to find. Look for the hut in the northern part of the village, where you get the Grim Reaper. It should be on your left. 3. The last intel is in the rat hole tunnels. When you come across a fork (Split, not silverware =P) go left to find the last intel. Crash Site 1. The first intel is located before you go onto the boat. Go slightly left of the dock to find the intel on some barrels. 2. Just after you leave the boat, look along the shore to find the intel. 3. The final intel is in the fuelsalage of the destroyed plane. WMD 1. The first intel is located in the barracks. Intel is located on the table near the stairs that you entered from. 2. The second one is easy. Once you kill all enemies in the relay station, head into the room before going downstairs to find the intel. 3. The last intel is located in the large warehouse. Before you enter the control room, look at the desks in front of you to find the last intel. Payback 1. First intel is located in the first chamber full of VC just after you killed your captors. Look on the shelf to your right. 2. The second intel is located just before you enter the Hind. Near a radio on a table, you'll find the second intel. 3. The last intel is located in the lair of Kravchenko. It is on a dimly lit table to your left just before you confront him. Rebirth 1. The first intel is located after you killed the person when you exited the cab. Looks to your left on the ground to receive the intel. 2. The second intel is located in the gas chamber of the Rebirth labs. If you die no worries, just make sure you grabbed it! 3. The last intel is on Hudson's side. Just after the NOVA gas is released, fight your way to the streets until a building in front of you explodes and your allies begin to surround a door. Look in the building to your right to find the lasr intel. Revelations 1. After passing through the first door, look in the hallway to your left. 2. After the second door, look in the hallway with the red light. It is located on a trash bin. 3. After you see a rocket launch, head left into an office and you'll find the last intel on a table near the monitor. Hard huh? Redemption 1. The first intel is located after a big storage container. It should be at the end of the container. 2. The second one is located when you reach a large room after walking down a flight of stairs. Look under the table in the center to retrieve the second last intel. 3. All right, this is it! The last intel. How hard? Look in the final room under a desk before you confront the final enemy (Dragovich). Hmmm CoD4 was harder. =p Name: Date Night Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Watch a film or clip with a friend. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: Really easy. Invite a friend, and watch a random clip...thats it... Name: In the Money Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 20 G Description: Finish 5 wager matches "In the Money." Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: Only done in multiplayer. Choose "Wager Match" and play the one with only 10 cod points being offered. Inexperienced players tend to linger in there. To get "In The Money" you have to come in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd. There are 4 different types of game modes. Easiest ones are either "Sticks and Stones" or "Gun Game." Name: Ready For Deployment Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Reach Rank 10 in Combat Training Difficulty: Easy Strategy: In multiplayer, you'll see an option called Combat Training, where you can fight against AI bots. Really just play FFA, bot on recruit, and set the time and score at max. By the time you finish, you should hit rank 10. This may take up to 20 mins, so be prepared to take a while to kill mindless bots. :D Name: The Collector Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 20 G Description: In Zombie mode, buy every weapon off the walls in a single game. Difficulty: Hard Strategy: This trophy is annoying because not only do you need a crap ton of points, but you are gonna have to survive for a long time to get the amount of points needed to complete this achievement. I recommend doing either Kino or for the ones with the WaW maps on Black Ops, Nacht. You need 13,150 points to buy every single weapon off the wall and this is excluding the values for opening the doors. Once you reach that amount or around that since I assume you bought something off the wall already, this is where you need to go, from right to left: In the spawn room there are two weapons, the Olympia, near the left staircase and the M14, at the top of the right staircase. Both are worth 500 points. Now then head right into the upper floor and you'll see the PM63 just to your left, worth 1000 points. Now then head down into the lounge area and to your left will be the Stakeout (1500 points) and at the bottom of the right staircase is the MP40. (1000 points.) Continue into the dressing room and go to the left side of the room to get the MP5K (1000 points.) Once you enter the stage, there are two more wall weapons: The M16 (1200 points) to the right of the power switch and Claymores (1000 points) right behind the power switch. On the stage link the teleporter and then head into the spawn room to link the pad. Head back to the stage and activate the teleporter. Now when you teleport into the room, look to your left and buy some Frag Grenades (250 points). After a little while, you will appear in the spawn room. Head straight into the open door that leads into the theater and turn left after going down the stairs where Juggernog is at and get the Bowie Knife. (3000 points) Head back through the same door, but turn right into the bottom floor near the spawn room to get the MPL (1000 points) to your right. The final weapon is located in the alley. Just go through the door into the alley and the AK-74U (1200 points) will be to your right. Name: See Me, Stab Me, Heal Me Trophy type: Bronze (Hidden Trophy) Gamer score: 15 G Description: Fire a pack-a-punched Ballistic Knife at a downed ally to revive them from a distance. Difficulty: Medium-Very Hard Strategy: Many players have had trouble with this and for good reason. First off you need to get a Ballistic Knife from the Mystery Box, which is 950 ea and then you need to pack-a-punch it, which is worth 5000 points. That alone makes this challenge difficult as you may not get the Ballistic Knife, even after thousands of points spent on the Mystery Box. Then you have to wait for one of your allies to be downed and you need to shoot one of your knives at your ally. Rather than do this with randoms, do this on offline splitscreen. Not only does it make it easier but the Mystery Box will always remain in the same place unless you restart or leave the game. Obviously Fire Sales are a god send. Really this requires you to be very lucky and have good coordination with your friend. Name: Hands Off the Merchandise Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 20 G Description: Kill the Pentagon thief before it can steal your load-out. Difficulty: Hard Strategy: This can only be done on the Zombie Map "Five" which is unlocked after you beat the campaign. Now then once the power has been turned on, every 5-7 rounds, the room will get dark and computer will notify you of an intruder. This is the Pentagon Thief, who if he gets close to you, will steal your gun that you are wielding. He spawns in the main room, where the teleporter is. Basically go on the catwalk and fire with your strongest weapon. Having a Ray Gun, Assulat Rifle, LMG, or a Pack-a-Punched weapon will quickly dispatch him, especially in solo. If you are lucky enough to get a Death Machine drop, he is extremely easy. Name: Sacrificial Lamb Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Shoot at or be shot by an ally with a pack-a-punched Crossbow and kill 6 zombies. Difficulty: Hard-Extreme Strategy: This can be very difficult. Unlike See Me, Stab Me, Heal Me, doing this with randoms is impossible. Either you need to coordinate this with your buddies online or invite your friend (again) to do some offline splitscreen. To begin, you need a Crossbow, which you can only get from the mystery box. While not terribly rare, it is not common either. I recommend you keep restarting the game until the Mystery Box spawns in the second room of the top floor. Keep trying until you get it. Fire Sales are also beneficial! Now that you got the crossbow, collect 5k points and pack-a-punch it. Now here comes another problem: it doesn't kill very well. The Crossbow pack-a-punch doesn't kill in one hit by the time you hit the high teen rounds, which can complicate things. Either get it very early or wait for an Insta-Kill drop. When your all set, fire it at an ally. Your ally should expect to be downed possibly. After it explodes, you should get your achievement, If not try again and restart. Another way is for someone to throw a monkey bomb, shoot your ally with the Crossbow and then tell him to go into the enemies surrounding the poor monkey. Oh and if you shoot at a downed ally, it won't work. Trust me i've tried. :D Name: Insert Coin Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 5 G Description: Access the Terminal and Battle the Forces of the Cosmic Silverback in Dead Ops Arcade. (O_o) Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: After you escape the torture chair, go up to the computer and type: "DOA". You will then be sent to a game of Dead Ops Arcade. Name: Easy Rhino Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 10 G Description: In Dead Ops Arcade, Use as Speed Boost to Blast Through 20 Enemies or More Difficulty: Medium Strategy: This can be a bit tricky, but can even be done on the first level. Basically just train zombies behind you and when you feel there are enough, activate the Speed Boost and plow right through them. Name: Just Ask Me Nicely Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Break Free From the Torture Chair Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: Very easy achievement, just press L2 and R2 (PS3), LT and RT (Xbox 360) or just the space bar. (PC) Name: Eaten By a Grue Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 15 G Description: Play Zork on the Terminal. Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: After you escape the torture chair, go up to the computer and type: "Zork." That's it. Name: Platinum Trophy type: Platinum Gamer score: N/A Description: Awarded when all other trophies have been unlocked Difficulty: Extreme Strategy: This is very, very time consuming. I took over 20 hours to get it. Congratulations though if you have gotten this trophy, but that's not all of them yet! ============================================================================== 5. Downloadable-Content Achievments (DLCT) ============================================================================== The following achievements are associated with map packs that have been released. At the time of this writing, there are 4 map packs, each costing 14.99. These achievements are entirely optional and are not needed to keep your platinum trophy for PS3 users, but it does fill up your trophy percentage bar and you get more gamer points and trophies. So far all achievements are associated with the zombie maps and some require more than two people to obtain. Well here are the following achievements, each organized into their map pack release titles. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ I. First Strike (FRST) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Name: Eagle Has Landers Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 35 G Description: In Ascension, escape on all three lunar landers. Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: This is easy, but the only problem is that it requires you to open up all the areas and turn the power on. This can be done in any order. One of the landers is located to left of the upper door in the spawn room, past Stamin-Up. Another lander is to the right of the upper door in the spawn room where the large area is. Just go up the stairs. The last lander is located past the power area, through the Speed Cola area, and is right in front of you. Name: THEY ARE GOING THROUGH Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 35 G Description: In Ascension, kill at least 5 zombies with 1 Gersch Device. Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: This is very easy since the Gersch Device is really strong and pulls zombies towards it, killing them instantly. Problem is that it can only be obtained through the mystery box and it can be fairly rare to get it. You'll most likely be spending alot of points to get it, but it is worth it. Name: Space Race Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 45 G Description: In Ascension, Pack-a-Punch a weapon before round 8 Difficulty: Hard-Very Hard Strategy: Ohh this was a fun one. This is hard because you need a lot of points and I mean alot. To begin you need to get to the pack-a-punch machine which is only accessible after you have ridden on all the landers and launched the rocket, which means you need to open up the whole map. Not only that, but you have a small window. However the following strategy should work well. To start, do this on solo. It's the best way to maximize points. For 3-4 rounds, use nothing but the M1911 and the knife. Do not pick up Insta-Kill or Nukes unless its the end of the round. Double Points helps alot. By round 3 or 4, open up the top door and go right and get a MP5K. If you get a Max Ammo, use the M1911. Keep shooting zombies in the torso or legs to maximize points. DO NOT and I repeat DO NOT buy any perks. You could buy Quick Revive, but even then you may not have enough. Make sure you repair as many barriers as possible and avoid Nukes and Insta-Kill. At Round 7, make a crawler, turn on the power, and start riding the landers. Once you've done that launch the rocket, and pack-a-punch the MP5K or M1911. Name: Chimp on the Barbie Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 35 G Description: In Ascension, kill a Space Money with a fire trap. Difficulty: Easy Strategy: After you turn on the power and you bought a perk, about 2-3 rounds later, monkeys will come from space. Let them take your perk and then let them follow you. Run to where Stamin-Up is and activate the trap. Don't worry, the fire trap lasts for a very long time, so you should have little trouble. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ II. Escalation (ESC) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Name: Stand-In Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 35 G Description: In Call of the Dead, send the crew to Paradise in Solo or Co-op. Difficulty: Hard Strategy: This is a long and annoying easter egg. You have to do a series of tasks and favors to send the Original Characters back into the time they were originally heading to. What you need is the V-R11, a high powered weapon, and possibly Semtex or Scavenger, Honestly just do the co-op version of the easter egg to save you time, but if you really wanna do the solo version of the easter egg, this is how it goes: 1. After you turn the power on, head to the lighthouse and then head into the room under the room where PHD Flopper is located. The Orginal Characters will be fighting and then Richtofen will ask you to find a fuse. The fuse is located in the room above you, either on top of the locker, or on the table near or across PHD. Place the fuse into the control panel. 2. Once the fuse is in place, Nikolai will active the MDT Security System. Richtofen will then tell you to find suggestive looking generators. There are 4 of them throughout the map and luckily there is one behind you! You can only destroy them with a Frag, Semtex, or Scavenger. One is located behind the building where Stamin-Up is located, behind the lighthouse. Another is located along the path in front of the lighthouse which leads to one of the boats. The final one is located in the sea beyond the railing on the boat where you turn on the power. Go to the left side of the boat and look down. Destroy it. 3. With that done, head back to the Original Characters and Richtofen will ask to run an errand for him. He wants you find a long golden rod with finger tips...ya did I mention he is crazy? Anyways head to the room of the ship where you turned on the power. You will see 3 switches. Pull the leftmost one once and the rightmost one 3 times. Then turn the wheel until the brown handle faces the 5 o'clock position. A sub will appear and a green light will be reflected into the lighthouse. 4. This is where the V-R11 comes in. Shoot with a V-R11 and the person will head into the green light and will be pulled towards the light, lol. Oh make sure you kill him. He will stop moving if you are successful. When he reaches the top, a Golden Rod will fall to the bottom floor of the lighthouse. Take it to the Original Characters and put it into the tube on the left side of the door. 5. Simply knife the control panel to the right of the door. Your reward? The Wunderwaffe DG-2! Not only that but now every time you kill George in Solo, he will drop the DG-2 instead of the Death Machine. Name: Ensemble Cast Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 45 G Description: In Call of the Dead, send the crew to Paradise in Co-op. Difficulty: Very Hard Strategy: It's the same objective as above except the puzzles and other tasks are harder, more confusing, and more time consuming, which means you have to coordinate heavily with your team. The following is how you send the Orginal Characters back to their correct time: 1 & 2. The first two steps are the same as the solo version of the easter egg. 3. Head back to the Original Characters and Nikolai will demand som Vodka. He likes Vodka...alot. Anyways you need two people for this. The Vodka is located in three places; The most common located is on the staircase in front of the lighthouse or the railing in front of the staircase in front of the lighthouse. It can also be located on the railing above where the MPL is and finally it can be located on the pad on the first boat before dropping onto the second boat. One player has to knife the Vodka and one player has to catch by holding the action button. (Sqaure for PS3 and X for Xbox 360.) 4. Put the Vodka into the tube and Richtofen will ask for the golden rod. Your next step is to head into the lighthouse and to open up all the floors of the lighthouse. There are 4 different dials, each a different color. On top the dial is yellow, then going down its orange, then blue, and on the bottom floor of the lighthouse the dial is purple. Do the following: ->Turn the yellow dial to 2. ->Turn the blue dial until the orange dial is set to 7. ->Turn the purple dial to 6. ->Turn the orange dial until blue is set to 4. The following combination from top to bottom is 2746. 5. Next you need to activate four morse code radios in the follwing order. I. The radio is in the room under the power room, on top of the cabinet. II. The next radio is located on the barrel near Stamin-Up. III. The third radio is on the second ship where you can buy the semtex. Its in the train car with the window in it. IV. The last radio is located on the cabinet under the stairs that leads to the Original Characters. 6. Head to the power room and pull the switches. Pull the leftmost one once and the rightmost one 3 times. Turn the wheel until the brown handle is in the 5 O'clock position. A sub will appear. 7. A foghorn sound will be emitted by the sub. You need to activate 4 foghorns in the follwing order: I. The base of the lighthouse near the pool of water near the cliff. II. Ride the Ice Slide, go past Speed Cola and go right. III. To the left of the base of the lighthouse. IV. Ride the Ice Slide, go past Speed Cola and head to the island. It is behind the large rock. After that a green light is reflected into the lighthouse. 8. Same as the solo process. Use the V-R11 and shoot a zombie with it near the lighthouse, follow him into the lighthouse, shoot him until he is dead and collect the Golden Rod. Note it is highly recommended that you either have a Ray Gun or Scavenger as the person takes a lot of hits to kill and he goes up fairly quickly. 2 Scavenger bullets is all that is needed. 9. Head to the Original Characters, put the rod into the tube and knife the control panel. Your reward? The Wunderwaffe DG-2 and for now on if you kill George in co-op you will receive the DG-2 instead of a Death Machine. Name: Stuntman Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 20 G Description: In Call of the Dead, make a zombie explode with the V-R11. Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: To complete this, you need to have a pack-a-punched V-R11 which you can only get from the mystery box and it is very rare. Then you have to do with its pitiful accuracy and shoot the same zombie 3-4 times and watch the zombie explode! Name: Shooting on Location Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 20 G Description: In Call of the Dead, kill 10 zombies with one Scavenger shot from over 100 feet away. Difficulty: Hard Strategy: This is really annoying. First you have to get the Scavenger from the Mystery Box, which is a sniper that fires nuclear bolts. Then you have to somehow guess how far 100 feet is and kill 10 zombies. The easiest way is to create a lot of crawlers, and I mean alot. Using a Crossbow or Ray Gun works the best. Then gather all the crawlers in the spawn area, near the Mystery Box spawn, then go to the left path to the lighthouse. Walk up the stairs to the door of the lighthouse and fire a shot. This should get your achievement. Name: Quiet on the Set Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 30 G Description: In Call of the Dead, cut the lights on the director. Difficulty: Hard Strategy: To get this achievement, you have to kill George A. Romero. No the V-R11 Lazarus does not count. You have to legitimately kill him. Do this on Solo since he has the lowest health in Solo. One way is to use Death Machine drops and shoot him in the head. Another way is to go the Mystery Box, get a weapon (other than V-R11), use up all the ammo, and then get a new weapon. Repeat until he falls. The best weapons are Mustang and Sally, Scavenger/Hyena or the Ray Gun since they have high amounts of damage. Snipers also work really well when shooting in the head. Its gonna take a long time before George goes down. When he dies, he will most likely drop a Random Perk Bottle and Death Machine or Wunderwaffe. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ III. Annihilation (ANH) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Name: Time Travel Will Tell Trophy type: Silver Gamer score: 75 G Description: In Shangri-La, acquire the Focusing Stone. Difficulty: Very Hard-Extreme Strategy: This is the longest and most confusing easter egg in Zombies to date. The achievement is gotten when one of the players receives the Focusing Stone. The easter egg can also be repeated after a few rounds has passed. Note you need 4 players throughout the whole easter egg process and I mean for the whole easter egg until the very end. If someone leaves, you need to restart so make sure your with a group of commited people. Everything is done in the past unless specified and after each step, you will need to return to the past. The following is a guide on how to complete the easter egg: 1. There will be four switches near the Quick Revive Machine. However they will only respond once the power is turned on. When all four players press it with the action button (Square for PS3 or X for Xbox 360) an eclipse will occur, indicating you have traveled into the past. 2. Head to the MPL and you will find two characters. Press the button near them and they will start talking. Apparently they are trapped as well. Seems to be a reoccurring theme in Zombies. 3. After their spheal, you will notice magical plates near the bridge with the rotating statue and around the MPL area. Basically you need one player to go to each area and they will begin to step on the matching tiles. Keep doing this until they disappear. If you do it incorrectly, you will have to restart and don't forget you have a 5-6 min time limit before you are returned to the present. 4. Go to the water slide, and have 3 players ride down the water slide. When the 3 players land, they will be on a pressure plate. Make sure none of them move at all. Then have the last playing ride down the slide while holding the action button to activate a switch. 5. Go to the waterslide and at the top of the waterfall is a diamond. Knock it down with an explosive or Ray Gun and then use the JGb to shrink it. Knife into the slide and it will land in the geyser where it will land on top of a tower. A new one will appear, indicating your not stupid, I mean you completed the step! 6. Head to the pressure plate in the crevice within the tunnels. You'll see a bunch of gas pipes. Turn the wheel 4 times until your character comments on the gas. You should see a lot of gas around parts of the map. 7. For this step, you need a calm napalm zombie. This is the hardest part because the Napalm Zombie not only comes randomly, but it can be killed easily as if one of your allies are not aware of its location, it will explode which will make the easter egg more complicated. Now then lure the napalm zombie into the cave near the MPL. Then take him to the spout launcher and before the power room. Now then head to the crevice and you'll see a bar raised. Hold the action button to lower it and your player will comment that the floor is lava! :D Oh make sure your in the same eclipse during this part as well. 8. Head back in time and go to the cave with the MP5K. You will see four holes along the wall, which can only be plugged by Spikemores. Lure an enemy to set off the Spikemores. After that head to the bottom of the waterfall. A brick that says Do not press X or Square will be sticking out. Disregard the warning and press it! If done correctly, you will be in the present. 9. Head back into the past once more and you will see 12 panels around the spawn area and the surrounding areas. Instead of playing Memory, just knife all the panels until they disappear. Go to the mine cart and look to the area where you cannot enter. There is a snare trap. Throw an explosive at it to complete the step. 10. Almost done! Go to the minecart and activate the radio (in the present.) It will start spewing out a code, which is "16, 1, 3, 4." Head to the past and go into the mud pit temple and start screwing around with the dials. Set the first dial to "[l-", the second to one dot, the third to 3 dots and the fourth 4 dots. If done, you characters will remark about it. 11. Next you have to find some Dynamite! It should be near the minecart gate. Now then you have to knife some gongs in a certain way. If you knife the wrong one, the focusing crystal will grow red. If you did it correctly, it will not glow at all. Find three others that do the same result. After the fourth one, the crystal will grow yellow and Treyarch will advertise itself. (Its symbol appears.) Then shoot the focusing crystal with the Fractilizer to knock down the dynamite. 12. Now then head back into the past, hit the gons again, and hit the focusing crystal near the minecart, then head into the spawn and shoot the crystal above the mudpit temple. Please note you have a limited amount of time and if you fail to hit both crystals, you will return to the present, which means you need to hit the gongs once more. 13. Head to the pack-punch-machine now, but now the machine will have vanished revealing...a wall! Anyways give the dynamite to Brock. You will be washed away and you will need to return to the same place again. When you go back the wall will have vanished, revealing an altar. Go to the altar to collect the Focusing Stone, thus completing the easter egg! The reward? Well first only one player may get it, but all players get the achievement. Now then the reward. One player will gain the effects of all 7 perks...for the rest of the game! Even when you go down or bleed out. You can only lose the effect once the game ends. Also when the game ends, you will hear something rather disturbing... Name: Blinded by the Fright Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 30 G Description: In Shangri-La, kill a Shrieker Zombie while blinded by it. Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: Shrieker Zombies randomly spawns through the ground. When they shriek you will be blinded. This is when you attack it with everything you got! It can only shriek at you when its very close, so when it shrieks, shoot its head. It should kill the zombie rather easily. Name: Zomb Disposal Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 30 G Description: In Shangri-La, dispose of a Napalm Zombie without it harming any players. Difficulty: Medium-Hard Strategy: The Napalm Zombie comes in randomly like the Shrieker Zombie. It is however much stronger and bulkier, but is very slow. Really keep your distance and unleash a storm of bullets from a distance. Assault Rifles and Ray Guns are the best option. This is hard cause if you get close to it, it will explode on you. Not only that but even on round 6-7 it is very hard to kill. Name: Monkey See, Monkey Don't Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 5 G Description: In Shangri-La, get something from the monkeys Difficulty: Very Easy Strategy: When a power up is dropped, Zombie monkeys will come and steal it. Kill the monkey to receive a random drop. This is really easy since the monkeys have 1 Health. No seriously anything will kill the monkey. Name: Small Consolation Trophy type: Bronze Gamer score: 10 G Description: In Shangri-La, use the 31-79 JGb215 on each type of zombie. Difficulty: Easy-Medium Strategy: Really all you have to do is shoot the JGb at a normal zombie, shrieker zombie, napalm zombie, and zombie monkey. However like any other wonder weapon, you need to get it from the box, which is a big hassle. However you don't need to kill it the zombie with the JGb, merely shooting at all of the 4 types of zombies will get the achievement. Also use the JGb on monkeys when they are stealing you power-up. Otherwise it won't count. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ IV.
