Introduction


The most anticipated game of 2011, Call of Duty: Modern warfare 3. The game picks up from where you left off in Modern Warfare 2 and sees you controlling many previous characters from the previous game. The game involves intense firefights across many countries such as Paris, New York and London. This time there's been a few added features to the game; first off is the new 'Survival' mode which is much like Zombies from the previous COD titles. You will have to face off against waves and waves of enemies and it gets harder each time, it's manageable to reach wave 15 though.

COD's critically acclaimed multiplayer is also back, this time there's a lot of added features such as the all new prestige shop and 'gun leveling', which awards players for using a gun more than other guns. However there's no trophies tied to multiplayer so if you're only playing for the platinum then you don't need to bother playing multiplayer.

The platinum is fairly straight forward, more than half the trophies are self explanatory and are story related/difficulty related. There's no online trophies as you'll be glad to know so the platinum won't take you too long. The campaign takes about 5hrs to complete on Recruit. Depending on your skills, about 8 - 10hrs for veteran.

Good luck on your road to platinum and hope this guide helps!


Roadmap


Step 1 - Completing the Campaign on Veteran, Mission Specific trophies & Intel

For the first step you will want you to complete the campaign on veteran, which isn't too hard in this game. Completing it on veteran first will make it so you only have to do one play-through. However if you've never played a Call of Duty game or any FPS before I'd advise you not to start out on veteran, reason being is it can be hard at some points and requires skill and patience but if you feel you can do it then by all means do so. It's about the same difficulty as MW2 so if you've completed MW2's veteran you will have no trouble here. Some tips for veteran:
  • Use cover at all times -
Cover is one of the biggest life savers in veteran, without it you'd be... well screwed. Wherever cover is available make sure you're near to it, you don't want to get caught in a firefight without any cover to quickly get to.
  • Use Prone -
Another life saver, this is one of the things you need to master to complete veteran, prone behind an object and slowly poke yourself out of cover to pick off enemies and when you start getting shot slide back to cover again.
  • AI (Your team/helper) -
The AI can be useful at times whereas most the time they are really not. Use them as decoys, enemies will get distracted by them and you can pick the enemies of easier. However this doesn't always work. If an enemy has seen you then he will only go for you. Make sure you never run ahead of your team/AI, you never know what's lurking around the corner.
  • Flashbangs/concussion grenades -
Very very useful in veteran especially if your surrounded by a group of enemies. Just pop one in a room to immobilise, blind and deafen them for a short period of time. At this point you can just run in all Rambo and blow them all away.


You will also want to go for the chapter specific trophies in this play-through too, try to get as much as you can of them to save you replaying any mission. None of them are that hard to get so you shouldn't have any problem with them. Also on your play-though you will want to collect all enemy intel, there's 46 of them and they look like laptops, they're not hidden that well so you may find these as you go through the story, or you can use the videos within the guide. This will net you the Informant and Scout Leader. For more information on any trophy mentioned in this step please refer to the trophy guide for details. At the end of this step you should have all Story Related trophies and also all Mission Specific Trophies.


Step 2 - Survival mode

New to MW3, survival mode sees the player defend against waves and waves of all sorts of enemies ranging from helicopters to dogs with explosives strapped to them. The trophies are pretty easy and you can do most of them by yourself. Getting to wave 15 isn't hard either. Powerpyx has written very detailed accounts and videos for each survival trophy so for more info please refer to the trophy guide. By the end of this step you should have, Birdie, Arms Dealer, Danger Zone, Defense Spending, Get Rich Or Die Trying, I Live, Survivor and Unstoppable.


Step 3 - Spec Ops (On hardest difficulty)

There's 48 stars to be earned in MW3s spec ops mode. Some of these missions are brutal and will really test your skill. You can do these either by yourself or with a partner, doing it by yourself is much harder as there's nobody to revive you if you go down. I recommend getting a co op partner to do these or you can do it in split screen if you prefer. There's 16 special op missions and each gives you 3 stars for completing it on the hardest difficulty. For more info on any trophies related to this step refer to the trophy guide. By the end of this step you should have, 50/50, No Assistance Required, Tactician, Brag Rags and Overachiever.*


Step 4 - Misc. Trophies

There are quite a few of these trophies in the game, they can be earned in either single-player or special ops. The reason this is one of the last steps is that you may have already got most if them without even trying. Some though you actually need to go for, such as knifing 5 enemies in a row (Doubt you'll be able to do this on veteran difficulty). For more info on these miscellaneous trophies please refer to the trophy guide. At the end of this step you should have all miscellaneous trophies which are, Strike!, Jack the Ripper and Serrated Edge. This will bring your total to 50 trophies and your platinum, congrats. If for some reason you don't then continue on to step 5


Step 5 - Clean up

Missed a mission specific trophy? Didn't get a trophy relating to survival mode? Then now's your chance to go over what your missing and earn them! Look what trophies you are missing and look them up in the trophy guide for more info on them. If you don't want to scroll through the whole thing make a search by pressing CTRL + F.

The Best of the Best
Complete the campaign on Hardened or Veteran difficulty.

If you've played previous Call of Dutys before on veteran you will find this not hard at all. If you use basic cover and pick enemies off one by one instead of going head first into firefights you will succeed.

There's no time limit, so take your time; don't rush. If you're ever out in the open you will die so always make sure you plan where you're going to move to next which has a good amount of cover. The checkpoints are a lot better in this than the previous CODs, they seem to be more paced and you can sort of predict when they're going to appear.

Basic veteran skills:

• Use cover at all times -

Cover is one of the biggest life savers in veteran, without it you'd be... well screwed. Wherever cover is available make sure you're near to it, you don't want to get caught in a firefight without any cover to quickly get to.

• Use Prone -

Another life saver, this is one of the things you need to master to complete veteran, prone behind an object and slowly poke yourself out of cover to pick off enemies and when you start getting shot slide back to cover again.

• AI (Your team/helper) -

The AI can be useful at times whereas most the time they are really not. Use them as decoys, enemies will get distracted by them and you can pick the enemies of easier. However this doesn't always work. If an enemy has seen you then he will only go for you. Make sure you never run ahead of your team/AI, you never know what's lurking around the corner.

• Flashbangs/concussion grenades -

Very very useful in veteran especially if you're surrounded by a group of enemies. Just pop one in a room to immobilise, blind and deafen them for a short period of time. At this point you can just run in all Rambo and blow them all away.

-Miscellaneous Trophies-


Strike!
Kill 5 enemies with a single grenade in Single Player or Special Ops.

A good spot appears at the very beginning of 'Persona Non Grata'. After leaving the start area and going down a set of stairs, you will come into a large courtyard. Run to the left side and take out the enemies that are in your way. 6 new enemies will come out of an alleyway and stop infront of a door. Throw your grenade right between them and you should easily kill 5 at once. Hold down to "cook" you grenade, allowing you to time the explosion more precisely. Reload the Checkpoint and keep trying if you didn't get it the first time.



Jack the Ripper
Melee 5 enemies in a row in Single Player or Special Ops.

This is super easy. All you need to do is to take out five enemies in a row by using your knife with . It doesn't matter if you do it during the story or while playing spec ops. However, it's a lot easier to do this on Recruit Difficulty. You may not die in between the kills.


-Collectibles-


Informant
Collect 22 Intel Items.

Check out Scout Leader below for detailed instructions.


Scout Leader
Collect 46 Intel Items.

There are 46 Intels in total. You can replay each mission, so don't worry if you miss one. The intels look like computers. You can pick them up by pressing . Each mission in the game has at least one intel. The video below will show you all 46 intel locations:



-Story-Related Trophies-


This Is My Boomstick
Kill 30 enemies with the XM25 in 'Black Tuesday.'


This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

You will have the XM25 (a high tech grenade launcher) in your inventory when the mission starts. Press to equip it. Make sure that you keep it all over the missions since you won't find another one. Take out as many enemies as possible with one shot, you will get about 2 kills maybe more per shot (depends on how grouped enemies are). Later on during the mission you can restore ammo at the ammo crates and receive full ammo for the XM25. Restart the checkpoint if you feel that you have done really badly at a part. There's a lot more than 30 enemies across the mission so if you only use the XM25 you will have no trouble doing this. It's recommended to replay the mission on recruit when going for the trophy.



What Goes Up...
Destroy all the choppers with only the UGV's grenade launcher in 'Persona Non Grata.'


This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

During the third mission, called 'Persona Non Grata' you will have to control a vehicle drone at some point. You have a total of ONLY 20 Grenades and need to destroy 5 Helicopters. It takes 2 Shots per Helicopter to destroy it so make sure you zoom in and aim carefully. Also don't waste the grenades on the enemies on the ground, use your MG to take them out. If at any point you feel you have failed and have used too many grenades you can restart the checkpoint.



For Whom the Shell Tolls
Destroy all targets during the mortar sequence with only 4 shells in 'Back on the Grid.'


This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

Towards the end of the mission 'Back on the Grid' you will have to take out enemy vehicles with a mortar. Make sure that you destroy each vehicle with a single shot. Wait until they have stopped driving and are perfectly still, this will improve your chances of a direct hit. Restart the Checkpoint if you miss a vehicle.



Kill Box
Kill 20 enemies with the Chopper Gunner in a single run in 'Return to Sender.'

This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

This can be done in the very beginning of the mission 'Return to Sender'. Once you breach into the area and get off the truck, you will be told to use air support. Don't kill any enemies yet, go to the left side and cover behind some crates to make sure you don't get killed. Activate the Chopper Gunner and kill everything you can as fast as possible. Enemies are marked red and easy to kill. If you can count how many enemies you have killed, it's really not that hard and you may get it without even trying. Simply keep shooting all over to hit everyone you can. If at any point you feel you have messed up then reload the last checkpoint.



Danger Close
Take down a chopper with an AC-130 smoke grenade in 'Bag and Drag.'

This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

After progressing about half way in the mission 'Bag and Drag' you will be able to use purple smoke grenades to request AC130 air support. Soon after receiving those grenades a couple helicopters will fly in and drop off enemy soldiers. Wait until the helicopter has stopped moving to drop enemies and quickly throw a smoke grenade underneath the helicopter. You will have to be quick as there is a delay in which the AC130 fires + the helicopters don't hang around for long. If you fail then reload the last checkpoint (The checkpoint will put you back right before the helicopters appear so you need to be quick).



Ménage à Trois
Destroy 3 tanks with a single 105mm shot in 'Iron Lady.'

This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

During the beginning of the mission "Iron Lady" you will be the gunner of an AC130, what you need to do is make sure you have the 105MM shot equipped. Now you must wait until 3 tanks are close together and shoot them with your 105mm ammo, the blast radius is pretty big so don't worry if they are not so close to each other. You must destroy all 3 with one shot for the trophy to unlock. If you feel you have failed at any point reload the checkpoint.


Nein
Kill 9 enemies with A-10 strafing runs in 'Scorched Earth.'

This is a mission specific trophy and is missable

During the mission 'Scorched Earth' you will be asked to climb the "Reisdorf building". Once you have done that you will have to protect your teammates from incoming tanks and enemies. To do so, you are able to request A-10 air support. Ignore the tanks for now you just want to focus on the foot soldiers instead as these guys are who you need to kill for the trophy. Aim and mark two points that shall be attacked, you need to be relatively quick since the tanks begin to kill your allies. You only have to kill 9 so you should have more than enough time to do it. If at any moment you feel you have failed simply reload the checkpoint.

-Spec Ops Trophies-

50/50
Complete a Special Ops Mission Mode game with the same number of kills as your partner.

You can do this on your own with two controllers in Splitscreen Mode. Play the first Spec ops Mission "Stay Sharp". Player 1 goes through the parcour and shoots 17 targets. Now Player 2 does the same thing and shoots 17 targets as well. The trophy will pop when the mission is over.


Birdie
Kill 2 enemy helicopters without getting hit in a Special Ops Survival game.

Best place to do this is on the "Carbon" Map. It's perfect because the air support crate is inside a building and the choppers can't attack you. Two helicopters will spawn in round 6. It's important that you receive absolutely no damage in the round you are destroying the helicopters (so don't get hit by the foot soldiers or the helicopters). Before you go into round 6, you should buy 10 claymores and a turret. In total, you should have at least $10,000 at the end of round 5. Go to the air support crate and secure the area with your turret and claymores. Use Predator missiles to destroy the helicopters ($2500 per missile). Stay in cover where no enemy can see you. The trophy pops right after you shoot down helicopter #2.

Alternatively, you can also do this on the Underground Map. Only helicopters spawn in round 6, no foot soldiers. Use predator missiles to destroy them.


Serrated Edge
Finish a Juggernaut with a knife in Special Ops.

This should be done on one of the first Survival Maps with Easy Difficulty. The very first one called 'Resistance' is a good choice. A Juggernaut spawns in round 10. Shoot 2 clips of your MP5 on him. Throw a flashbang and attack him with your knife until he is dead. You can refill your flashbangs at the Equipment Armory Crate.



Arms Dealer
Buy all items from the Survival Weapon Armory.

This costs $113,000. You have to reach lvl 50 in order to unlock all weapons. The Weapon Armory gets available after beating wave 1. The weapons are counted together from all your survival runs. The attachments need to be bought one time only, not for every gun.

Assault Rifles ($3000)
  • M4A1
  • M16A4
  • SCAR-L
  • ACR 6.8
  • AK-47

  • Type 95

Sub Machine Guns ($2000)

Light Machine Guns ($7000)
  • M60E4

Shotguns ($2000)

  • M203 Grenade Launcher (goes with the M4A1 and M16)
  • M320 Grenade Launcher (goes with any of the remaining assault rifles)


Danger Zone
Buy all items from the Survival Air Support Armory.

All together, this will cost you about $30,000. You need to reach lvl 50 to unlock all perks. The Air Support Armory gets available after finishing wave 3. This doesn't need to be done in one game! Everything is counted together from all your survival runs!

Special Weapons
  • Predator Missile
  • Air Strike
  • Delta Squad
  • Riot Shield Squad

Perk Care Package
  • Quickdraw
  • Steady Aim
  • Stalker
  • Extreme Conditioning
  • Sleight of Hand


Defense Spending
Buy all items from the Survival Equipment Armory.

This will cost you $22,250 in total. You need to reach lvl 37 to unlock all items. The Survival Equipment Armory gets available after beating wave 2. This doesn't need to be done in one game! Everything is counted together, you can do it over multiple Survival runs.
  • Claymore x5
  • C4 x5
  • RPG-7 x2
  • Body Armor
  • Self Revive
  • Riot Shield
  • Sentry Gun
  • Sentry Grenade Launcher


Get Rich or Die Trying
Have $50,000 current balance in a Special Ops Survival game.

You should play on one of the first four Maps "Resistance", "Village", "Interchange" or "Underground" since they are on easy difficulty. Simply don't buy any weapons at all. Pick up the weapons & ammo from enemies. Juggernauts can be taken out by throwing flashbangs and shooting 4 magazines of the MP5 into their head. Helicopters should also go down after 4 mags of the MP5. In tricky situations you may restore your ammo, but do not waste anything. You should reach the $50,000 milestone in round 15.

Here is another great tip from User T_l_M_B_0:
If you are playing with 2 players, once each player has $25,000 you can go to one of the shops and keep pressing to give the other player $500 dollars each time. Once one play has $50,000, the other person can just use the shop again and give the $50,000 to the other player so both of you can get the trophy very easily. This way you don't need as much money so you can buy weapons and ammo whenever you need them.


I Live
Survive 1 wave in a Special Ops Survival game.

Check out Unstoppable for further information.


Survivor
Reach Wave 10 in each mission of Special Ops Survival mode.

Check out Unstoppable for further information.


Unstoppable
Reach Wave 15 in each mission of Special Ops Survival mode.

This will get easier as you level up. You should buy a LMG (Light Machine Gun) for $7000 as soon as possible. It's perfect against all sorts of enemies, no matter if it's a Juggernaut or a Helicopter. Make sure that you do always have a Self Revive with you. You can rebuy it for $4000 at any time. Claymores are a great way to get rid of the first couple enemies of each round. Turrets (especially the grenade launcher turret that is unlocked at lvl 31) are very powerful when you use them in the right way. Turrets should always be planted in a corner where enemies can only spawn in front of the turret. If you plant them in alleyways some enemies might come from behind and take them out quickly. If you have 2 grenade launcher turrets practically no foot soldiers can stop you anymore. The support team with protection shields is also very useful. Just make sure that no enemies attack their back.


No Assistance Required
Complete a Special Ops Mission Mode game on Hardened or Veteran with no player getting downed.

This will unlock automatically when you finish "Firewall" on Veteran Difficulty.


Brag Rags
Earn 1 star in Special Ops Mission Mode.

Check out Overachiever for further details.


Tactician
Earn 1 star in each mission of Special Ops Mission Mode.

Check out Overachiever for further details.


Overachiever
Earn 48 stars in Special Ops Mission Mode.

The amount of acquired stars depends on the difficulty settings you used to finish a Spec Ops Mission. You need to finish all of them on Veteran (except the very first mission, it's simply related to your speed and not to any difficulty settings). There are 16 missions in total, each one with a maximum of 3 stars.

-Secret Trophy-

Flight Attendant
Kill all 5 enemies during the zero-g sequence in 'Turbulence.'
This is the only secret Trophy in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
The zero-g sequence is in the very beginning of the 'Turbulence' mission. Pick up an AK-74u and reload your weapons before entering the first room of enemies. Use your pistol against the first two soldiers and take out the last 3 with the AK-74u. You can reload the checkpoint if you mess up.

-Spec Ops Walkthroughs-
(related to the Overachiver Trophy)


Mission #1 - Stay Sharp
Personal Difficulty Rating: 3/10
Time limit?: 28 seconds


This mission is all about speed. Pick up another pistol instead of keeping the rifle. It allows you to run faster. Switch to your other pistol before the dog targets appear. You shouldn't reload at all, it takes too long! The guns I used were the USP /w Tactical knife and the P99.



Mission #2 - Milehigh Jack
Personal Difficulty Rating: 6/10
Time Limit?: 1 minutes 50 seconds


You need to finish this mission within 1:50 minutes to obtain all 3 stars. Keep the weapons you have in the beginning. During the slow motion sequences you need only one shot to kill an enemy. Switch to your pistol and finish off the first couple enemies. Take the AA-12 (Swap your pistol) You will now come to an larger area with lots of enemies. Throw some flashbangs and take them out. The other guys shouldn't be a problem. In the last slow mo sequence you will need to kill all guards quickly. An AK47 works best and you can easily take out the guys that come through the door at the very end. You will get flashbanged so make sure your close to the table to use it as cover!



Mission #3 - Over Reactor
Personal Difficulty Rating: 5/10
Time Limit?: 5 minutes


A timer will start after disarming the thermite in the very beginning. You will have a total of 5 minutes which is more than enough. Stay in cover and use grenades when things get out of hand. The rest should be relatively simple. Just remember that you need to take out all enemies in the first room before the next door can unlock. All the other exits are open and you can easily go for a speedrun.



Mission #4 - Hit and Run
Personal Difficulty Rating: 8/10
Time Limit?: No time limit


From the start, you should go straight for your first target, in the house infront of you with the two snipers on the roof. Keep your MP5 all over the time, it has enough ammo and doesn't slow you down too much. After target 1 is killed go for target 2 and ignore most of the enemies. In the next part, you will need to free hostages in a container at the beach. Ignore the helicopters, when you are fast enough they won't be able to spot you. Kill a couple enemies around the container and throw a flashbang before you go inside. Once you're in, free the hostages and lay down. Stay here and kill all enemies with the MP5.



Mission #5 - Toxic Paradise
Personal Difficulty Rating: 7/10
Time limit?: No time limit


You are playing as a Juggernaut which allows you to take more damage. You can request air supports which can take out a lot of enemies within a short time. Use those air strikes wisely! You do also have tons of grenades and there are a couple ammo crates. Don't rush into groups of enemies. You should stay on distance. Use cover a lot and aim around corners to hit some enemies, then go back into cover and repeat until all enemies are dead. Towards the end of the mission you will encounter an enemy juggernaut. Throw some flashbangs and use an LMG. Speed runs are not really possible in this mission since there are way too many enemies and you have to stop for the samples too often.
Recommended weapons are: LMG of your choice (you can choose some in the beginning) and the G36C or maybe AK-47.



Mission #6 - Firewall
Personal Difficulty Rating: 3/10
Time limit?: 4 Minutes


This Spec Ops mission requires two players!

One player will control the turrets and the other one needs to reach the end of the map. It's not that hard. Player #1 should kill all enemies & helicopters before player #2 moves on.



Mission #7 - Fatal Extraction
Personal Difficulty Rating: 6/10
Time limit?: No time limit


You will need to collect 5 intels which are dropped by enemies. Most important thing is to take out the sentry guns that are in your way. One hit with the knife and they are gone. Shouldn't be a real problem when you know where they are. The thing that causes the most trouble are the hyenas. Turn up your volume and listen closely to their sound. That's practically the only thing that will let you know when they are close. If a hyena does happen to jump on you make sure you press at the exact right time, he'll do nasty things to your throat if you don't.



Mission #8 - Hostage Taker
Personal Difficulty Rating: 4/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


Avoid being seen and everything will be fine. Use your silenced pistol and your knife to take out enemy soldiers fast and quietly. For the 3 stars it doesn't matter if you've been spotted or not. The main thing to worry about is the helicopter, never go into it's spotlight or you will basically fail the mission.*



Mission #9 - Charges Set
Personal Difficulty Rating: 1/10
Time Limit?: 33 Seconds


This spec ops mission is similar to the very first one called "Stay Sharp". Finish the parcour as fast as possible. Use the MP5 in the first couple rooms and switch to your pistol when you are about to run out of ammo. Should be easy for you when you completed the first parcour already. It goes into nice slow motion which makes it easy to take down the targets.



Mission #10 - Resistance Movement
Personal Difficulty Rating: 5/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


One of the good old Stealth Missions. You have a silenced sniper rifle and silenced pistol. One shot with the sniper is enough to take out an enemy. You will need to aim really quickly at some spots. Follow the video step by step to find out what to do.



Mission #11 - Litte Bros
Personal Difficulty Rating: 3/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


This mission is relatively simple, you are supported by your allies on the helicopter the whole time. Keep the weapons you get in the beginning, they are a good choice (especially the MP5, it has very little recoil and kills enemies pretty fast). Take your time and go into cover when you need to. When you are inside the building you should throw some grenades when it's getting tricky.



Mission #12 - Invisible Threat
Personal Difficulty Rating: 4/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


In this spec ops mission you will be playing as a Juggernaut, allowing you to suffer more damage. At the beginning, you should use your predator missile. Kill the soldiers that are in your way and disarm the first 3 IED's. Fight the incoming waves of enemies until the tank rolls in. Destroy it with your predator missile and the rest should be a piece of cake. Disarm the IED's whenever you have the chance and you will be done quickly.*



Mission #13 - Server Crash
Personal Difficulty Rating: 9/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


In the driving portion in the beginning of the mission you will need to take out enemy vehicles with your grenade launcher. This shouldn't be a real problem when you are aiming correctly. Simply ignore the foot soldiers, they won't really hurt you.
You will be brought to a building. Once inside, use your grenade launcher to take out most of the enemies. When you drop down to the underground you should use some flashbangs to make easy targets out of the enemies. Head down to the little room where you have to download the data from Volk's computer. Plant some Claymores and get some weapons you feel comfortable with. A dozen enemies will enter the room while the download is in progress. Stay in a corner and take them out quickly. Save your flashbangs, you will need them in the next part. Once all enemies are dead and the files are retrieved, you will need to go up the stairs where you encounter a Juggernaut. Throw flashabangs and shoot him with a Light Machine Gun. He is the most annoying bastard in the mission, if he manages to get down the stairs then your dead. The last couple enemies won't a problem.

Mission #14
Personal Difficulty Rating: 8/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


When the mission starts you are on a chopper and have to kill a couple waves of enemies. You should mainly use the PKP in this section. You have to reload whenever you have time to do so. When things get out of hand you can throw some flashbangs before reloading. The grenade launcher attachment of the M4A1 is also very useful. You can keep both weapons for the whole missions. The chopper section is all about skill and you'll have to aim really fast. When you get out of the chopper all your ammo and grenades will restore. On the ground you should take out the rocket launcher enemies first. Work your way to the two objectives and destroy them with C4. The buildings along the way will offer good cover. Take your time, there is absolutely no need to rush. Stay behind walls and leave your cover just for a little moment to see where enemies are standing. Kill them one by one until the coast is clear.


Mission #15
Personal Difficulty Rating: 7/10
Time Limit?: No Time Limit


The hardest part might be the roomy area in the beginning. Use your XM25 to take out multiple enemies at once. There are two MG Gunners on top of vehicles. Take them out quickly and stay in cover. All in all, the mission is not that hard when you got 3 stars in all the previous spec ops missions. Use cover a lot and do always wait until your health has restored. Keep shooting on distance, it makes it harder for enemies to shoot you. Once you are on the rooftop you can basically ignore all enemies. Just take out the chopper, it does only take a couple shots. Later on a group of enemies will be brought to the rooftop. Camp behind some objects and take them out when they come up the stairs. You can ignore the toxic gas. It doesn't really damage you.


Mission #16
Personal Difficulty Rating: 3/10
Time Limit?: 2 minutes


This Spec Ops mission requires two players!

Player on the ground:

Firstly you'll want to wait until the your friend has cleared the way with the AC130, once he's done that slide down and run towards the blockade of concrete blocks. Now you will see two cars coming towards you from the left, wait until the AC130 player has destroyed them. Now you'll see some big concrete circles to the right in the distance. Some enemies will be around them so either you or the AC130 kill them. Now rum like he'll towards the objective, plant the C4. Once you go through the door shoot the the enemies inside (there's about 5) now do your stuff with the laptop. Next step is to leave and kill the enemies that come into the building. Get the AC130 to shoot everybody outside and there's hardly anybody. Once outside you'll see some steps to the right, go up them to get to the laptop which opens the doors. Open the doors and loads of enemies come out. Once the AC130 kills everything run into the door. You'll have very little time left at this point. Once inside mission ends.

AC130 gunner:

First of all press to get the enemies to show up as red squares, use a mixture of all weapons to save valuable reloading time.

Wow got a guide up for this pretty fast.

A few questions for you.

What you personally rate the difficulty for the platinum? Gamefly sent me out the game before I had a chance to remove it from my Game Q, and I figured since its already coming I'll get some trophies out of it.

But as I'm not really into trophy whoring anymore, I don't really wanna spend more then a week playing this game, and besides some chapter selection, don't wanna have to do multiple playthroughs of the campaign.

Also, how would you rate the Spec Ops survival? Does it have the same staying power as Zombies, or does it suffer from being able to be camped for rounds at a time since its on the multiplayer maps? Are the trophies for Spec Ops going to be a grind?
