Q: What is this FAQ?

Q: Why did you write this FAQ?

hopefully this guide did that.

Q: How did you get all this info?
A: Most of the trophies are fairly straight forward and I observed the rest 
while playing in-game

Q: I can't understand one of your explanations!?!?
A: Just send me an email (listed at contaact information) and i'll try 
re-explaining it to you or update it with more detail.

Q: Hey I found a quick/easy way to do a trophy, can you put it in your guide?
A: Sure, simply email me (with an alias to credit you with) and i'll update 
the FAQ and give you credit for it.

A: Simply update to version 1.04 and trophies should now work.

Q: Can I pick each mission from the menu, complete it on Veteran and still get 
the trophies that way?

Please note the order of trophies are sorted by type, so bronze trophies are 
first, then silver, gold and then the platinum. If you do not want to manually 
scroll down through each individual trophy, you can press CTRL + F then type 
in the name of the Trophy you are looking for, or the code next to that trophy
it will take you straight there.

Some tips before starting:

1. For the story related trophies, always try to utilise cover. There are no
infinite respawn enemies and less grenade spam than previous COD games. Always 
take note of grenades and the direction in which the enemies are shooting at 
you.

2. In spec ops, always stay close to your partner, ALWAYS. If you happen to be 
shot and put in last stand your partner can revive you if they are close by, 
you do not want to be halfway through a mission and then die because your 
partner was too far away to revive you. Also, if you do Solo Spec Ops, you 
will not go into Last Stand mode, you will just die instead.

**More tips to come soon**

*** PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS, IT APPLIES TO ALL SPEC OPS TROPHIES ***
_______________________________________________________________________________

To earn stars in Special Ops, you must complete one of the 23 missions 
on either of the 3 diffuculties. Completing it on the lowest difficulty
(Recruit) earns you 1 star, completing it on the next highest level(Hardened)
gives you 2 stars, completing it on the highest difficulty(Veteran) earns you 
3 stars.

All together there are 69 stars. You will need to beat all missions on the 
hardest difficulty(Veteran) to get the related Special Ops trophies, including 
the Gold Trophy.

It is also STRONGLY reccomended that you play Spec Ops with another Player, 
simply because the levels are *mainly* designed for 2 players, unless you are 
hardcore and want to try 1 player the majority of Spec Ops.

For all JUGGERNAUTS, try to use cover as much as possible, and remember Stun 
and Flash Grenades work wonders and can get you crucial seconds to recoup. It 
takes up to approx 5 .50 Cal bullets to kill one, they have SERIOUS amounts of 
armour. Also Claymores are a godsend while dealing with juggernauts, they can 
also give you precious seconds to run away or get to cover. 

Also if you are having trouble with the harder difficulties, you can always 
try planting claymores in main areas, then luring your enemies out into them 
while you move back to another safe area. Also remember to use your grenades 
when they are available to you.

*** Also there are 2 levels in which you MUST play with another player. ***

*** PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THIS, IT APPLIES TO ALL VETERAN TROPHIES ***
_______________________________________________________________________________

- ALWAYS use cover, it is a life saver. When you are in cover and severely 
injured, go prone (hold O), and this will make you a harder target to hit.

- In the sneaking missions you should ALWAYS use suppressed weapons, not doing 
so is NOT reccommended.

- Watch out for enemies crouching behind cover, take the time to spot them, 
otherwise you could be put in an uncomfortable position when they surprise you.

- WATCH OUT FOR DOGS. Dogs should be your first priority, they can charge at 
you a LOT faster than other enemies (duh), and thus pose the most immediate 
risk. They can also instant kill you, and who wants to get owned by a dog?

- When a grenade gets thrown at you, THROW IT BACK! Free grenades should always 
be welcomed and can help get enemies out of cover.

- If you are not the most skilled gamer, I would strongly reccommend you beat 
the game BEFORE trying Veteran. This is a great game and being frustrated at 
this game on Veteran may mean you won't enjoy it more. I personally beat the 
game first on Hardened, then Veteran, and I can honestly say having the 
knowledge of the gameplay aspects and enemy locations HELPED ME A LOT. It 
could help you too.

4.01. Back In The Saddle                                                [00401]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Help train the local militia.                                    

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 1/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You get towards the end of the first mission, you will have to shoot a 
few targets, as well as run 'The Pitt.' There are no real enemies so this 
trophy is incredibly easy. This will most likely be your first trophy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.02. Danger Close                                                      [00402]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Get hand picked for Shepherd's squad.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 4/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this at the end of the second mission after passing 
through the militia village and after you clear out the school. When you meet 
up with Shephard you will get this trophy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.03. Cold Shoulder                                                     [00403]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Infiltrate the snowy mountain side base.        

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 5/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this in the mission 'Cliffhanger.' You have to ascend the 
mountain with Soap and then make it to the main building in which you must 
"interact" with the base. As soon as you make it down the slope and get to 
the helicopter this is yours.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.04. Tag 'em and Bag 'em                                               [00404]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Find Roajs in the Favelas

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: Simply progress through the Favelas and you will eventually catch up to
him, once you reach the top, the mission ends and this trophy is yours.

NOTE: in this level there are many enemies that shoot from behind cover and 
windows, try memorising the locations of enemies and it should make it easier 
on higher difficulties.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.05. Royale With Cheese                                                [00405]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Defend Burger Town

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this after completing the mission "Wolverines." In this 
mission you have to, well as the trophy says, defend burger town. You can 
make this level seem easier by sticking to rooftops and using the Predator 
Missile when it is ready. There is a thermal scoped weapon on the rooftop with 
the turret, this will come in handy when your enemies use Smoke Grenades as 
cover.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.06. Soap on a Rope                                                    [00406]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Storm the Gulag

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this trophy after you have progressed through the gulag, 
and rescue prisoner #627. Through out this level, use the cover available and 
grab a Riot Shield when you first encounter them. 

If you are having difficulty in the shower room, go back to the wall in which 
you breached (while facing the direction of the objective marker) and use the 
cover on the left hand side. 

When the Riot Shield enemies appear, use the grenades available to you. 
Flanking them around the side also works wonders.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.07. Desperate Times                                                   [00407]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Execute the plan to help the Americans

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this by beating the mission called "Contingency." You will 
have to sneak past enemy patrols and infiltrate the base with your squad. 
Remember to use suppressed weapons while sneaking and make good use of your 
Predator Missle. 

There is also a M240 Heartbeat Sensor on the box after you slide down the 
hill, use it wisely.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.08. Whiskey Hotel                                                     [00408]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Take back Whiskey Hotel

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this trophy by beating "Whiskey Hotel" in Act III. At the 
start you will need to progress through a raging gunwar in which you will 
need to use cover effectively. Stay low and wait for your health to regenerate
if it gets low. Inside the 'building' after this sequence, use your grenades 
wisely as your enemies will hide behind cover. After this you will need to 
make it to the roof, after which the mission will end.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.09. The Pawn                                                          [00409]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Assault Makarov's safe house

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 9/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this trophy by beating "Loose Ends" in Act III. Start by 
running down the hill, and when the landmines activate HOLD O, otherwise you 
will die. You need to head towards the left path through the smoke and while 
doing so try to avoid gunfire. After you make it up this hill you will need to 
breach and clear the entrance, and the rooms in the basement. There are an 
assortment of weapons in one of the basement rooms, pick wisely. After this
you will need to defend the house. Plant Claymores and pick a spot where you 
can see and protect the objective. 

At the end sequence you will need to make it down a hill. I personally went 
down the right hand side, I found this to be most effective and I could avoid 
enemies much easier this way. Either way, make it down to the bottom of the 
hill and this trophy is yours.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.10. Out of the Frying Pan...                                          [00410]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete the mission in the Airport graveyard

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Story Related
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Cannot be missed on a regular playthrough of the Campaign.

Guide: You will get this trophy by beating 'The Enemy of My Enemy' in Act III.
The areas are filled with soldiers from 2 seperate sides, I would reccommend 
staying low and avoiding getting involved with soldiers as much as possible. 
The route I took was the far left and basically nearly hugging the wall as I 
progressed through the level. Reload often and cover your back to avoid being 
unexpectedly killed from behind.

After you make it to this checkpoint you will need to shoot as many people as 
possible, after which you will need to control the car. Accelerate using (R1),
and steer using the analog stick. After you do this the mission ends and the 
trophy is yours.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.11. Pit Boss                                                          [00411]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Run the Pit in 'S.S.D.D.' and finish with a final time of under 
30 seconds.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: CANNOT be completed in Spec Ops, must be completed in 
Campaign, in the first mission.

Guide: You need to complete 'The Pit' in under 30 seconds to get this trophy. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| A VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: you will not get any time subtracted from your score |
| if you do this mission in Spec Ops, so I would reccommend doing this in the |
| first mission of the game so that you can have a slight degree of error.    |
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Killing civilians will add to your time and having good accuracy will subtract
from your time. I used the M4A1 and the USP to do this one. As for the actual
course:

1. Start by running into the course and slightly heading right, while doing so 
3 Targets will pop up. 1 will be on the far left, 1 in the 'window', and one 
on the far right.

- Shoot all 3 (I did from left to right) and then sprint forward.

2. Next 3 will pop up, as well as a civilian in the foreground. 1 enemy will 
be on the far right hand side, and the civilian will be infront of the other 
enemy. 

- The order in which you take these 2 down doesn't really matter.

3. Now 7 targets will pop up, with 2 civilians. One of the two civilians is 
on the far right hand side of the rear part (inside the window), the next is 
standing INFRONT (i.e. foreground) of the window in the middle. There are 2 
enemies directly above these two civilians, as well as 1 enemy behind the one 
standing near the middle window, with 1 more on the far LEFT window, as well 
as 1 enemy closer than the rest, who is standing on the right hand side.

- The order in which I did this in was to shoot the two enemies on the top 
floor first, then i went from right to left on the bottom floor (reason 
because you have to walk through the left hand side where the enemy was 
standing) then immediately proceed into the doorway on the left hand side.

4. There will be 3 enemies in this area, 1 immediately infront of you (behind 
the civilian) and 2 on the right hand side. When you look to the right hand 
side, the 2 targets on the far right are the ones you need to shoot. So shoot
the enemy immediately infront of you first, and then quickly turn and shoot 
the 2 on the right hand side. After this, quickly change your weapon to the 
USP and sprint up the stairs.

5. When you are near the top of the stairs, an enemy will spawn at the top of 
the stairs. You MUST melee him(using R3), regular bullets won't do anything to
him. 

6. After this there will be 6 targets with 2 civilians. One civilian is inside 
the window straight as you walk up the stairs. On the RIGHT of this civilian 
will be 2 enemies, one behind the other (The one behind will move from left 
to right.) Quickly take them out (while not moving forward, VERY important) and 
then start turning right. As you face the right hand side, there will be 2 
enemies, one on the far right, and one behind him who will also move from left 
to right. Quickly shoot them and move around the obstacle and jump down.

7. This is where it gets tricky. There is 1 enemy on the left, but there is 
also a civilian infront of him who moves from left to right. Strafe (L3) right 
and you will then see 3 enemies. One on the far left, one in the middle, and 
one behind this enemy in the middle who will move from the middle to right hand
side. Shoot them in any order you wish.

8. Last step. You will see 2 enemies, one behind the other (the one behind 
moves from left to right), quickly take them both out and then SPRINT to the 
end.

-End course- 

Tips for 'The Pitt'

- DO NOT use the Desert Eagle, the recoil is horrible, no matter how good it 
looks it's not appropriate for this course.

- Try to memorise the locations of the barriers in which you will have to 
navigate around, it is incredible frustrating when you get stuck on one.

- Try to memorise the locations of the enemies, this seems like a no-brainer, 
but it really does help you cut down your time.

- Try not to use more than 1 bullet per enemy. You need to cut time and you do 
not want to be reloading in the 'heat of battle.' It will also add seconds onto 
your time.

- Use a SMG in quick bursts as it has a large capacity which will cut the need 
for reloading. 

- I would strongly reccommend you use the USP as your secondary weapon, it is 
equipped with a tactical knife which lets you knife faster, it can cut down on 
your time while trying to melee the enemy at the top of the stairs.

- If you shoot a civilian, restart. You're only going to waste your time by 
continuing.

- If you reload before jumping off the second level near the middle of the 
course, restart. You need to be fast, you want to reload only once maximum, 
which should be after you shoot the first 3 enemies after jumping down off the 
second floor.

Description: Plant the C4 in 'Cliffhanger' without alerting or injuring 
anyone in the blizzard.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: You can't shoot, melee, or be seen. Basically means make 
it to the C4 checkpoint without 'interacting' with any guard.

Guide: After Soap parts ways with you, you need to progress through the storm
without any enemy contact, which basically means you can't use any weapons or 
damage anyone. Keep an eye on your Heartbeat Sensor and crawl as much as 
possible. Here's the path I took:

When soap leaves you, move southwest, towards the green car, then crawl 
along the far outside of the building with 2 enemies (on the right hand side, 
inside the fenced area). Then crawl to the door of the next building and wait 
for the truck to come past. Crawl east from that building to the stack of 
boxes. Then proceed south-east around those boxes, while doing so, there may 
be a guard on the right hand side on top of the hill. Keep heading towards 
the objective and take the right hand side of the next building. When you 
make it to the runway (you will see 2 fighter jets there) immediately sprint 
across the runway, Soap will say there are foot mobiles headed your way, but 
they wont reach you.

Description: Kill 7 Chickens in under 10 seconds in 'The Hornet's Nest'

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 1/10
Additional Details: Only available in the market section near the end of this 
mission.

Guide: The only real place to get this is right near the end of this mission.
There will be a market place with stalls, in which many chickens are stacked 
in boxes. You can easily get this by tossing 1 or 2 grenades into a mob of 
chicken cages, or by simply using an Assault Rifle. 

Try not to shoot the chickens while clearing out the enemies otherwise you may 
not have as many grouped together which would make this trophy seem harder.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 4 enemies in a row while downed in Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: Requires a SECOND PLAYER/CONTROLLER.

Guide: For this trophy you will need a second player. You will need to go into
the 'Last Stand' mode, in which you can use a pistol while you are 'half-dead' 
on the floor. You will be unable to stand up or move fast, or use another 
weapon.

An easy way to get this is to do a split-screen match on the 3rd Alpha Mission
(the one in favela) and get the second controller and melee the first player.
This will put them in 'Last Stand' mode. Now you need to kill 4 enemies, and 
on recruit this shouldn't be too hard. You need to get this in one go, so if 
you get revived or die the count restarts. Have patience with this one as you 
should be able to get 4 kills within the 1 minute limit of 'Last Stand' mode.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.22. I'm the Juggernaut...                                             [00422]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill a Juggernaut in Special Ops

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge/Spec Ops Mission related.
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: Juggernauts are the larger looking foot soldiers. Pick the Spec Ops 
mission Snatch & Grab and at the start a juggernaut MAY** appear in the open 
space after the plane right infront of you. Simply use the Intervention sniper 
rifle or a Light Machine Gun which you should be able to pick up. It may take 
a while but he will eventually go down, just keep shooting. As soon as he dies 
this trophy should pop up.

** The juggernaut does not always appear at the start, if he does not appear 
at the start and you are in a rush you can keep restarting untill he appears.

Also note you can do this on any difficulty, if you just want to quickly get 
this trophy just pick Recruit difficulty, you will incur less damage this way.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.23. Ten plus foot-mobiles                                             [00423]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill at least 10 enemies with one Predator missle in Single 
Player or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Hit R1 to speed up the Predator Missle, giving enemies 
less time to space out.

Guide: The most ideal place to get this is in the mission 'Wolferines' in 
which you must defend Burger Town. After you pick up the Predator Missle, you 
will need to progress towards the roof on a building on the opposite side of 
the road. One of your squad mates will announce "large amount of foot mobiles 
emerging from ____ direction." There will be about 15-20 enemies here, so 
simply pull out your Predator Missle and aim in the middle of the mob. It 
really isn't as hard as it seems.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.24. Unnecessary Roughness                                             [00424]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Use a Riot Shield to beat down an enemy in Single Player or 
Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge/Spec Ops Mission related.
Difficulty: 4/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: The first time you can get this is in the mission which contains 
'disturbing content.' After you progress through this mission you will 
encounter police resistance with riot shields, simply pick one up and melee 
(R3) while near an enemy.

** HOWEVER ** 

If you chose to skip the 'disturbing content', you can get this in the mission 
where you storm the gulag/prison. After you progress into the armory, 
one of your Squadmates will tell you to pick up a Riot Shield. After exiting 
the armory, progress to the left and meelee (R3) a soldier with the Riot 
Shield equipped.

You can also get this on the Spec Ops level 'Terminal' after the first wave of 
3-4 enemies, grab the Riot Shield that one enemy will drop and procees towards 
the stairs, simply meelee an enemy twice and they will die and you will get 
this trophy.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.25. Knock-Knock                                                       [00425]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 4 enemies with 4 shots during a slow-mo breach in Single 
Player or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: Slow-mo breaches are initiated after planting C4 on a door,
this will alert you when to be prepared.

Guide: I got this trophy in the mission "The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday." At 
the second breach (or first if you prefer) you will need to kill 4 enemies 
with 4 shots. Unfortunately, there are hostages(and explosives) in the room, 
which means you'll have be careful in aiming as shooting either will result 
in a mission fail. If you do this on Recruit, it will only take 1 CHEST shot 
to kill each enemy, so simply take your time and aim, as the slow-mo will NOT 
wear off untill ALL enemies are dead. If you are finding it difficult, try 
memorising the locations of the enemies. If you are having trouble remembering 
where the enemies are located, you can simply shoot a hostage (cruel much?) 
and the checkpoint will restart and you can re-breach again.

If you miss this opportunity, you can do this in the Spec Ops mission 'Breach 
and Clear.' Simply breach at the start of the level and take out 4 enemies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.26. Some Like it Hot                                                  [00426]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 6 enemies in a row using a Thermal Weapon in Special Player 
or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 6/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: The easiest way to get this is either in the mission 'Wolverines' or 
the Spec Ops mission in which you defend the location in 'Wolverines.' 
Pick up the M14 Thermal Scope and shoot 6 enemies, it is a powerful rifle so 
6 single shots should do this. In 'Wolverines' you will be told to pick this 
weapon up as the enemies use smoke.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.27. Two Birds with One Stone                                          [00427]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 2 enemies with a single bullet in Single Player or Special 
Ops. 

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: Best done with a Sniper Rifle, high penetrative power.

Guide: If you don't get this on a normal playthrough, you can select the Spec 
Ops mission 'Hidden' (the one with the description mentioning Chernobyl). At 
the start of the mission, walk through the storage container and go LEFT. 
Take out the enemy you see on the left with a quick shot with the Intervention.
Then crouch and move right, around the corner will be 2 enemies, line them up 
and shoot 1 in the chest. The enemy will hit 1 and go straight through and 
kill the other.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.28. The Road Less Traveled                                           [00428]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Collect 22 enemy intel items.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Collectible
Difficulty: 6/10
Additional Details: Intel items look like laptop computers, there is NO way of 
checking which ones you have/missed.

Guide: Enemy intel items are stored at locations through out campaign, simply 
look out for these items and continue them, and you will eventually get this. 
There are 45 intel items all together. Refer to an in-depth FAQ for locations.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.29. Leave No Stone Unturned                                           [00429]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Collect 45 enemy intel items.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Collectible.
Difficulty: 6/10
Additional Details: Intel items look like laptop computers, there is NO way of 
checking which ones you have/missed.

Guide: intel items are stored at locations through out campaign, simply 
look out for these items and continue them, and you will eventually get this. 
There are 45 intel items all together. This means you need to find ALL the 
enemy intel items in campaign. Again, refer to an in-depth FAQ for locations. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.30. Drive By                                                          [00430]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 20 enemies in a row while driving a vehicle in Single Player 
or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Constantly holding L1 will ensure you auto aim and take 
out targets as fast as possible.

Guide: Ideal places for this are the ending sequence in 'Cliffhanger' or the 
chase sequence in the mission 'End Game.' If you do not get this in a normal 
playthrough, put your difficulty on Recruit and pick either one of these 
levels (preferably End Game) and simply accelerate using R1 and shoot using 
L1. You will auto-aim so when enemies come close simply hold down L1 and you 
will eventually rack up the kills.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.31. The Harder They Fall                                              [00431]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 2 rappelling enemies in a row before they land on their feet 
in Single Player or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Enemies must STILL BE IN THE AIR, and must be killed ONE 
after the other.

Guide: I got this in the mission 'Whiskey Hotel.' After you progress through 
the first stage and enter the building, clear out all the enemies in the first 
room, and then head outside. Look in the direction of the large building and 
shoot 2 out of the 3 enemies rapelling down the wall infront of you.

You can also get this trophy on the start of the Spec Ops mission 'Suspension.'
Right at the start either stay on the far left or right hand side, and shoot 2
out of the 4 enemies that will rapell down, if you miss this chance you can 
always restart as this opportunity is right at the start of the level. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.32. Desperado                                                         [00432]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 5 ememies in a row using 5 different weapons or attachments 
in Single Player or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: This is easiest done on the mission 'Loose Ends.' After you reach the 
house, Simply kill 1 enemy with your primary weapon, then another enemy with 
your secondary weapon, then sprint up to an enemy and knife another enemy. 
Inside the house is a large arsenal of weapons (around 15+) so simply switch 
weapons twice and kill another 2 enemies while doing so.

You could also do this easily on the Spec Ops mission 'Suspension.' There are 
around 5-7 guns sitting right infront of you when you spawn, simply switch 
them out after each kill and you should get this.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.33. Look Ma Two Hands                                                 [00433]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill 10 enemies in a row using akimbo weapons in Single Player 
or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge.
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: Akimbo weapons are scarce so follow instructions below. 
They also have lower accuracy than their single counterparts, prepare for the 
recoil.

Guide: There are many places to do this, however I got this in the mission 
'Loose Ends.' Simply storm the bottom floor of the house and pick up the dual 
weapons which the enemy at the end of the corridor, and kill 10 enemies. If 
you do this method, you should easily get 10 kills in a row before you exit 
the area.

Another place (which is not as easy) to get this is on the mission 'Takedown.' 
Once you pass the area with the dogs, walk straight ahead without turning left,
there will be akimbo Desert Eagles in the corner here, next to the house. 
They will kill in 1-2 shots but the recoil is horrible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.34. No Rest For the Wary                                              [00434]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Knife an enemy without him ever knowing you were there in Single 
Player or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: Enemy MUST be killed without him seeing you, i.e. from 
behind, and without hearing your footsteps.

Guide: To get this trophy, simply sneak up to an enemy without him turning 
around or being alerted to your prescence, and knife him. I got this trophy in
'Cliffhanger' (go figure). When Soap parts ways with you, rush up to the first 
car, and carefully observe the enemy on the opposite side of this car. Sneak 
up to him and knife him WITH his back turned to you, then this trophy is yours.

**NOTE** Instead of knifing this enemy, you could walk into the house nearby 
and knife the enemy who is sitting on a chair facing the opposite direction.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.35. Threesome                                                         [00435]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Kill at least 3 enemies with a single shot from a grenade 
launcher in Single Player or Special Ops.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Challenge
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: You should already have this after beating the second 
mission, if not read below.

Guide: You should get this fairly early in the game. When you are under the 
bridge (lol troll) Sgt. Foley will instruct you to shoot the enemy on the 
bridge. The game will instruct you to switch to your secondary fire using 
[LEFT]. Simply shoot the grenade at the enemies on the top of the bridge and 
you should knock out at LEAST 3 enemies.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.36. For the Record                                                    [00436]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

difficulty. However, if you beat the game on Hardened, you will get this 
trophy as well as 'Price of War.' Beat the game on Veteran and you will also 
get all the Mission Related trophies for beating them on Veteran.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'S.S.D.D.' and 'Team Player' on Veteran Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 7/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: Self explanatory, these are the first two missions and are not 
relatively hard compared to the rest of the missions. ALWAYS use cover, and 
watch out for grenades. During the vehicle sequence, when you pass through the 
school immediately focus fire on the RPG welding troops on the roof. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.38. Black Diamond                                                     [00438]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Cliffhanger' on Veteran Difficulty

Trophy Type: Bronze

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: You should try minimising encounters with enemies in this mission. If 
you can plant the C4 without being seen (which is another trophy) you are 
already halfway there. Always utilise cover and WATCH YOUR HEARTBEAT SENSOR, 
it can be a lifesaver, also remember it will not pick up enemies behind you. 
Crouch as much as possible and STAY PRONE if you get hit. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.39. Turistas                                                          [00439]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Takedown' and 'The Hornet's Nest' on Veteran Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 10/10
Additional Details: Easily (lol irony) the two hardest missions in the game.

Guide: Takedown is incredibly frustrating on Veteran, Hornet's Nest, no so 
much. On Takedown, ALWAYS be aware of enemy positions AND make sure you check 
windows and behind you often. Avoid using Akimbo weapons in this as maximum 
accuracy is needed. Move SLOWLY and be patient, you will eventually get 
through. 

On The Hornets Nest, always stay behind cover and wait for your 
squad mates to announce it being safe before moving out of cover. After 
beating Takedown, the Hornest Nest should feel a lot easier.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.40. Red Dawn                                                          [00440]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Wolverines!' and 'Exodus' on Veteran Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 9/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: On Wolverines, you will want to utilise the Predator Missle as much as 
possible. Stick close to your squad mates. Also crawling the long way around 
to move positions never hurt anyone.

Exodus is incredibly frustrating, one of the most annoying segments in the 
game. Use the laser designator as much as possible and USE YOUR FLASH GRENADES 
when clearing out houses, and be patient. Be persistent and careful before 
anything. After passing this, know you have passed one of the most annoying

4.41. Prisoner #627                                                     [00441]

Description: Complete 'The Only Easy Day...Was Yesterday' and 'The Gulag' on 
Veteran Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 9/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: 'The Only Easy Day...Was Yesterday' isn't relatively hard. When you 
breach you must be fast because the hostages will be shot faster than on other 
difficulties. Always use cover, and after planting the C4 FOLLOW SOAP. He will
lead you to a sniping spot where you can safely take down enemies. After 
reaching the area in which A LOT of enemies come, again, FOLLOW SOAP. Plant 
C4's towards the back of the position so enemies can't really sneak up to you.
Then stay prone and pick enemies off 1 by 1 with your Thermal Scope.

The Gulag is relatively easy, just progress slowly and USE THE RIOT SHIELD. 
When you enter the shower room, stay immediately near the entrance to the left 
and use the cover, you will BARELY get shot. Pick off enemies here. The rest 
of the level is fairly easy.

4.42. Ends Justify the Means                                            [00442]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Contingency' on Veteran Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 10/10
Additional Details: A time limit applies near the end of this mission, see 
below for details.

Guide: Another sneaking Mission, FOLLOW your squad mates instructions and do 
not use your enemies weapons, they are un-suppressed. There is also a M240 
Heartbeat Sensor on the box after you slide down the hill, use it wisely. Also 
take note of enemies trying to flank you. When the timer starts, you will have 
2 minutes (YES 2 MINUTES) to make it to the 'objective.' Before this timer 
starts however, use the Predator Missle on the mob of 6-7 enemies immediately 
infront of you. Then the NEXT time it is available, use it on the flying 
helicopter. Progress towards the building with the car parking under it (ugh 
hard to describe) and you should get a check point. MOVE CAREFULLY untill the 
coast is clear.

4.43. Homecoming                                                        [00443]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Of Their Own Accord','Second Sun,' and 'Whiskey Hotel' 
on Veteran Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 8/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: Again, the usual tactics, use cover, move slowly. You should be used to 
it by now. Watch out for enemies behind cover as they can surprise you. These 
missions can be challenging but overall aren't that difficult. Complete these 
3 missions and this trophy is yours.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.44. Queen Takes Rook                                                  [00444]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Loose Ends' and 'The Enemy of My Enemy' on Veteran 
Difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 9/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: On Loose Ends, you need to use Flashbangs/Stuns inside the house to 
ensure no quick deaths, also use cover effectively while moving around. When 
moving down the hill, I suggest taking the path on the RIGHT HAND SIDE. When I 
did this mission, I encountered maybe about 3-4 enemies contrary to the 8-13 
I would get by using the left hand side.

On 'The Enemy of My Enemy' you need to move slowly down the left hand side of 
the map, crawl if needed to avoid patrols. It can be frustrating if seen but 
if you memorise the locations you can dead with them effectively.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4.45. Off the Grid                                                      [00445]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Description: Complete 'Just Life Old Times' and 'Endgame' on Veteran 
difficulty.

Trophy Type: Silver

In-Game Type: Specific Mission/Difficulty related.
Difficulty: 9/10
Additional Details: See below.

Guide: In 'Just Like Old Times,' I reccommend using a Thermal Scope weapon and 
a weapon with a Heartbeat Sensor. When you and your squadmate are discovered, 
there is a weapon with a Heartbeat sensor near the 3 barrels, use it, but DO 
NOT use your Night Vision Goggles. The Sensor is more worthwhile and effective 
than the Night Vision Goggles. After you pick this up, proceed directly ahead 
into the small tunnel and use the barrels for cover, this will make it 
incredibly easier than other spots. 

As for 'Endgame', I will not spoil anything but you need to be aware, and also
fast, if you made it this far on Veteran 'Endgame' should be easy. Completing 
End Game means you completed MW2! Congratulations.
