Blac Ops II is the sequel to the 2010 game Black Ops by Treyarch. This time around, Nicaraguen terrorist Raul Menendez has risen to power. China has control over all rare Earth elements. Menendez wants to watch the world burn ... so he ignites a cyber war between China and the US. Frank Woods from Black Ops makes a return, having survived the previous game. He narrates the 1980's portion of the game to David Mason, son of Alex Mason. Woods will tell stories of the 1980's and how he, Mason and Hudson witnessed Menedez' rise to power. In 2025, David Mason will lead his group of SEALs to find and take down Menendez and Cordis Die before it's too late. There is a lot more to it than meets the eye .... some things you never saw coming.

[top]Tips & Strategies

Campaign Customization - You can now customize your loadout in Blakc Ops II. Pick your weapons, attachments, grenades and perk which you think will suit you best in your quest of victory.

Campaign Scoring - At the end of each mission, you will get a score. The points per will always be the same, but how many of each you do will vary. The more you do, the more your score increases.

Campaign Challenges - There are ten challenges a level. What is required will vary. You will gain points towards the campaign score but you will also unlock weapons, perks and equipment as you complete the challenges.

Campaign Perks - In the customization, you are allowed to have a perk equipped. These can help a whole lot while in battle. The best of these is the Access Perk, which gives you access to locked off spots of the level and gives you little goodies.

Strike Force Missions - These are option, more tactical approach mission. Completing, failing or simply not doing them can change the outcome of your playthrough.

Enemy Machines - Since it is mostly in the future, the enemies will ahve things like sentry turrets, ASDs, CLAWs, quads, drones etc. These can be deadly if you happen to cross their path. It's best to take them out at soon as you find one. Snipers work best and if you have EMPs use them to disable the machines.

Friendly Machines - Sometimes they are given to you, sometimes you find them with the Access Perk. Either way, they are a big help when playing. Simply spot a target/area for it to fire on and sit back.

Cloaking - During the game, you may come across a cloak camo and even some enemies use it as well. Even when in use, your gun will always be visible making it easy to pick them out and in turn, easy to see you. So no matter if it is active or not, you or the enemies are easily seen.

Special/Secondary Grenades - You get to pick your equipment this go around. All grenades, even the EMP, whill stun an enemy. Only the EMPs work on machines though. EMPs are best for the Strike Force missions, while Concussions and Flashbangs are best for normal missions.


  1. Playthrough 1: Normal Runthrough - This can be a Veteran or any other difficulty run. Basically, just play through earning all story based trophies as well as some choice based and the 10,000 for each level. You will also come across some intel and complete challenges during this run.
  2. Playthrough 2: Veteran/Second Run - If you did not do Veteran your first go around, do it now. If you did, this is a second run. You'll get any choice based/level specific trophies you missed. You may also come across missed intel and a few challenges. This run is needed because there are two trophies that coincide with one choice, so you'll have to replay to ge the one you didn't get.
  3. Clean Up - Any challenges oy itnel you missed you will grab now. Byt this time though, you won't have much left.
  4. Multiplayer - Now you will do the grind to get to Level 55 and Prestige. This will take close to a 20 hours play time, so you may just want to get it out of the way.
  5. Zombies - This will require a lot of matches, most likely. It's bets to play a few introductory games of TranZit and set aside a specifc trophy or trophies to go for each match.

Old Fashioned
Complete"Pyrrhic Victory", "Old Wounds", "Time and Fate" and "Suffer with Me" in Veteran.

Pyrrhic Victory, Old Wounds, Time and Fate and Suffer With Me are all of the 1980's missions. The first three you play as Mason, the third you play partially as Menendez and in the final mission you play as good 'ol Woods. These missions are easy on Veteran, with an exception of Old Wounds, an area or two can get a little tricky.

Old Wounds: The area when the APCs come to the destroyed village can be tricky. Move along the left side of the area, picking off enemies that are on roofs first. When you get close to the rocket location, kill the enemies before you get up there. The next tricky area is right after this area, when all the helicopters, tanks and APCs come while you're on horseback. As soon as the tanks and APCs come into view, shoot them. Watch for helicopters that are dropping off tropps and shoot it down right away. You will need to keep moving as well, if you stay still it makes you an easy target and a quick kill.

Complete all future levels in Veteran.

For this trophy, you must complete every mission of the 2025 portion of the game on Veteran difficulty. The Strike Force missions do not count. You will play as David Mason for the entirty of this portion, except for maybe a five minute part as Menendez and a half of a mission as CIA undercover Operative Farid. The main thing to watch out for are enemy machines, they are powerful and don't come down quick. They will kill you quick and without warning. Also, enemies with the cloak camo can be easily overlooked since only their gun is visible. Your best friend will be friendly machines and the Storm PSR. Basically, sit in cover and let the machines do the work while you use a deadly sniper from cover. Also, the bulk of the deciding choices you make in the game will take place during these missions. Also note that your missions may vary from the ones I include due to player choices.

Karma: For some reason I found this whole level to be a little frustrating. I don't know if it was just how I played or the weapons I used, but some areas got tricky for me. Just take your time and go slow, don't rush. There are enemy snipers at some points as well as ASDs to look out for. Also, DeFalco walks along the upper level at one point. If you can kill him from there, you can basically cut out at least half of the outdoors area.

Achilles' Veil: Not a hard level, but the quads can be a pain in the ass. Make sure you take them out first, or else odds are they will take you out before you even realize what's going on.

You can view a level's challenge completeness by pressing , then on a level and finally to shift over to teh challenges area. Below will be a written guide on how to get 133 of the challenges. The other 27 consist of the eleven intel challenges, but the guide for that will be in High IQ and not included in this part of the guide. The other sixteen challenges are 100% Survivability (playing a level without dying) and completing the five Strike Force missions in Tactical Overview.

Mission Complete
Complete all challenges in a level.

Black Ops II has a total of 160 challenges and ten per level. Odd are you won't, sratch that, you definately will not get this through normal play and will have to go for this one. None of the challenges are overly hard so it's basically just picking a level you feel may be easiest to do or just waiting to complete all of them for the gold trophy.

See Giant Accomplishment for a list of challenges and a written guide to earn them.

Just Gettin' Started
Complete 1 challenge in any level.

Challenges are new to Black Ops II. Each mission has ten challenges which add up to 160 total. Some are easy while others are tricky/difficult. You cannot miss this torphy, and will most likely get this during Pyrrhic Victory.

See Giant Accomplishment for a full list of challenges and how to complete them.

Singapore Sling
Successfully neutralize the SDC freighter in Keppel Terminal.

Another Strike Force mission, and again you have ten minutes to complete this level successfully. You don't really have to worry about enemy CLAWs, just teh soldiers and ASDs. There are three points: A, B and C which you must plant a device at each of them. After you plant it, you must defend it until it's full. Use your troops to clear out areas quickly and to defend positions once you plant the device. Once you plant all three, you will be told to press . You then have to guide a missle to hit the freighter on the side on the area. After you do that the trophy will unlock.

Desert Storm
Successfully escort the VIPs to safety.

This strike force mission is called I.E.D. You must use drones, ASDs and a HOAM to escort high value individuals to a meeting in Afghanistan. You will be running through the same area as in the mission Old Wounds. Again, you must complete teh mission in order to get the trophy. So long as one vehicle reaches the designated point, you're good. The trick is to try and get ahead if you can. Many enemies will have RPGs and be on horseback, if you can get ahead of the convoy and take them out quick they won't pose a problem. Helicopters aren't bad either if you use the drones. Tanks pose the main threat. It's best to go into "Tactical View"mode and order the tank to be destroyed. It will be killed much quicker than you doing it yourself. Once you reach the safe zone you get the trophy.

Successfully defend FOB Spectre from incursion.

Firstly, you must successfully complete the mission in order to unlock this trophy. You will have ten minutes to defend three points from being attacked and destroyed. The best option is to put one soldier unit at C, the other at B and the CLAW at A. The sentry guns are already placed at good points. The main threat are the CLAWs and ASDs. The ASDs are easily taken out no matter what, but the CLAWs are best killed with the sentry gun. You will get soldier reinforcements during the level, but no extra CLAWs or sentries. This is a fairly easy mission though, so it shouldn't prove too difficult.

Black Ops II Master
Complete the campaign on Hardened or Veteran difficulty.

Ah the standard trophy, but only a this time I recommend playing on Veteran so you unlock Old Fashioned and Futurist, the Veteran Video Walkthroughs can be found there as well. Here are some tips that can help you in your playing:

Cover: Just as in any game, use it. It can be the difference between life and death.

Dive to Prone: Nothing much to say for this one, but it can get you out of a sticky situation.

Custimization: Use the guns you want to, it will most likely make it easier for you, but also use what you think would be ebst for the level. The Storm PSR can also shoot through walls, so you may wanna give that a go.

Ammo Crates: Each mission has a few of them, so don't be afraid to waste all of your ammo, you got to do what you got to do.

Access Perk: Even though you have a variety to choose from, you this one. It can gain you access to things that may help while you play.

Friendly Machines: These can be a big help, so whenever you get them use them. You can sit back while they do the dirty work.

Also, you do not have to do the Strike Force missions, only the main story missions count.

Art of War
Successfully assassinate SDC Chairman Tian Zhao.

This is Strike Force mission Dispatch. The goal of this is to shoot down Zhao's aircraft and confirm his death. You mjst find and kill him before time runs out in order to complete the level. It is pretty straight forward but there will be a lot of enemies, a lot of ASDs and a few sentries. It's best to just take the time you need and not rush. Also, use a soldier with a machine gun. I went around the left side, but there were a lot of ASDs but barely any soldiers. Use the rocket on groups of soldiers and/or ASDs. After enough killing, you will thin the enemy out enough to make it to Zhao's aircraft. You will plant a hacking device and will need to gaurd it as it hacks the hatch. you won't have an overwhelming group of enemies but you have to keep an eye on those who sneek by. Once the hack is complete and you move towards the hatch, it will open. Zhao will stumble and you will shoot him. you will then I.D. him and the final Strike Force mission will end.

You will have five locations to search, but "Karma" is always in the first building on the right side. It's best to go straight for her. there should be much resistance on this side. When you head to the extraction, you will face some foes but nothing to overwhelming. Once you board the helicopter the trophy will pop.

If DeFalco escapes with Chloe, you have a chance to redeem ourself immediately in the Strike Force mission Second Chance. During the mission, you will rescue Chloe if you successfully beat the mission. That will also cause her to be on the Obama as well.

Intel returns in Black Ops II and is part of the Campaign Challenges. Only main path story levels have intel, meaning Striek Force mission will not have them. Each of the campaign levels have three, for a total of 33. Also, the intel will not save until you have completed the level. You cannot just find the missing ones you need then quit. Here is a list of all the locations of the intel:

Pyrrhic Victory

Intel #1 - After you hop off the truck with Savimbi, head to the tree on the right. A truck will be on its side and a hole will be beside it. The intel is in it.

Intel #2 - Once you land on the boat, go up the ladder on the left side. There is some gray sheet metal siding, the intel is in the corner behind it.

Intel #3 - When you and your team are falling back, you will come to a destroyed foundation of a building that has a refill crate. In front of it is a tree with a tree stand, go to the tree in front of this one and climb that tree stand to get the intel.


Intel #1 - When you have to access the drone on the landing pad, look directly behind the tail. There is a room behind it and the intel is on the table to the left.

Intel #3 - When you get ambushed by Cordis Die, they will blow off a door. During the escape you will have to enter the doorway and you will come into another room. Directly across from you is the intel, sitting on a desk.

Back in Time
Use a future weapon in the past.

I recommend doing this after the game, that way you have every futuristic weapon at your disposal. Then, pick either Pyrrhic Victory, Old Wounds, Time and Fate or Suffer With Me to play. Before starting the level, press to customize your class. Then, pick any gun type but make sure the gun you choose is one you saw in the 2025 segments of the game. Finally, you can start the level. Make sure you kill someone with the gun and keep it on you the whole level because at this time, I don't know if not using it or getting rid of it negates the trophy. Once you have beat the level the trophy will pop.

Man of the People
Stop the brutality inflicted by the PDF.

It's funny, usually Cal of Duty games have mission specific trophies that require you to do and complete a specific task whilst playing. In Black Ops II, this is the only non choice based, level specific trophy in the game. It is earned during the level Time and Fate. During one portion of the level, you will control Raul Menedez yourself. Noriega's men will capture you, but he will set you free. You will then choke him a bit and make a run for his sister, Josefina. While making the run, you will come across the Panamanian Defense Force , or PDF, on your rage filled journey. Some of the soldiers will be beating civilians. You have to kill the PDF soldiers doing this, and it is ok if the civilian dies, so long as the brutality is stopped. He are the locations of the brutalities:

Brutality #1: The first is easily located and it at the bottom on the hill after you beat up Noriega.

Brutality #2: Under the hut/building on the left at the bottom of the kill. Towards the back a PDF soldier will be stomping a man.

Brutality #3: At the bottom of the hill, if you go straight you will go into a building. Head up the stairs and into the first room. A PDF soldier will be forcing himself on a woman.

Brutality #4: You will come across a group of PDF soldiers and a group of civilians will be on their knees about to be killed. This part isn't missable.

Brutality #5: After #4 you will head up a hill and through some gates. A PDF soldier will be beating a defenseless man.

Brutality #6: You will enter a barn and about halfway into it a PDF soldier will be kneeling over a man. The trophy should unlock here.

Brutality #7: At the end of the barn a PDF soldier will be hitting a woman. If the trophy does not unlock at #6 it will definately unlock here.

Gun Nut
Complete a level with customized loadout.

In Black Ops II, you are able to modify the loadout given to you ... or change it all together. Most likely you will mess around and get this early, but if you really want to get it done right away, do it on Pyrrhic Victory. On the FN FAL, equip the only available camo and start the mission. Once you complete the mission, the trophy will unlock.

Ten K
Minimum score 10K in every mission.

Treyarch has implemented another to feature to call of duty this outing, scoring you at the end of every mission. They score you in a variety of areas whilst you play the game. The second you se scoring though, you may think it will be hard or just not too easy. Actually, this is pretty easy. Even if you play on Recruit, so long as you complete a few level challenges you will get the 10,000 points no problem. It should also be noted that this encompasses the eleven campaign levels plus the five Strike Force missions. If you ever want to check your scores, from the campaign menue press and it will show your record. Here is a quick breakdown of how you are scored from greatest points to least:

Difficulty: 5,000 X difficulty level (1 = Recruit, 2 = Regular, 3 = Hardened, 4 = Veteran)
Challenges: 2,000 points per challenge, if all doen in one level you get 20,000
Stunned Enemies: 250 points per enemy you stun
Explosive Kills:
150 points per kill with explosives
Enemy Machines Killed: 150 points per enemy machine you destroy (ASD, Quads, CLAWs, Sentry Turrets, Drones)
Melee Kills:
100 points per melee kill
Headshot Kills: 50 points are awarded for headshots
Standard Kills: 10 points for the standard kill

Welcome to the Club
Reach Sergeant (Level 10) in multiplayer Public Match.

This will be earned while reaching Level 55 so you can Prestige for Welcome to the Penthouse. This will come fairly quick, no matter if you're an avid and experienced Call of Duty play or just a casual player or even a n00b. Play some matches of your favorite game type and soon enough you will be Level 10.

Welcome to the Penthouse
Prestige once in multiplayer Public Match.

You will need to reach Level 55 in order to Prestige. To find the Prestige option when the time comes, from the Multiplayer Menu go to Barracks and scroll through the choices until you find Prestige. Play some game modes, toy around with guns, equipment, perks and scorestreaks. Have fun and play with friends and complete challenges. Try to focus on spending about twenty hours the Multiplayer to get to the point you need to Prestige. This of course does not take in to effect how good the player is, what mdoes they play or if they have Double XP active. That could cause the time to drop or raise simply a few hours, to as much as several. With all the enw things in the Multiplayer this go around, you should have a fun time.

Big Leagues
Win 5 multiplayer League Play games after being placed in a division.

The way the description is, you may have a few thoughts in your head. My first one is that it'd be like a sports team in a sense. I'd be placed in a small division with others and then have to win my games. The way this actually works is to select League Play from the Multiplayer menu. Then you can pick which type of league you'd want to join. You will then have to play five qualifying matches and depending on how you do you will be placed in the Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum Division and a sub-division within the division. You will then have to win five games after being placed in your division. The game modes vary, consisting of most of the available game types in standard multiplayer. When you win or lose, you will climb or go downt he leaderboards and rankings your your division. Also, you will only get points towards your multiplayer ranking by winning. Win five and the trophy is yours.

Trained Up
Win 10 multiplayer games while playing in Combat Training playlists.

Combat Training is a little different this go around compared to the previous game. This time it is in Multiplayer, and when the game isn't full it replaces the empty spaces with Bots until someone joins to fill its place. You just have to win ten games in order to obtain the trophy. To get to Cambat Training go to Multiplayer > Public Match > Find Match > Combat Training > Objective. Objective is basically a mish mash of all game mdoes the game has to offer. Odds are you won't be playing the same mode more than twice in a row, so it will spice things up while you go for your wins.

Party Animal
Win 10 multiplayer games while playing in Party Games playlists.

Party Games consist of a few fun game types. In Gun Game, you have to get twenty kills. After each kill, you will get a new gun. Sticks and Stones makes you use only the Crossbow and Throwing Axe. Gun Game gives you a pistol and one bullet. Whenever you knife an enemy or make a kill shot, you will get another bullet. Sharpshooter gives everyone a specific weapon for a certain amount of time. From the main menu, go to Public Match > Find Game > Party Games > One of the Choices. You have to place in the top three to be considered a winner, you don't have to come in first place.

Tower of Babble
In TranZit, obey the voices.

This Easter Egg can only be done while playing TranZit. Unfortunately, you get nothing for completing it. Good news, it's not long and it's not hard ..... but it's luck based. You will need four players to do this as well. Also, once you complete one path it cannot be done agagin. You will only be able to do the other path. Once you have done both paths, you can never do them again. That means no helping others. There first few steps will always be the same, but once you turn on the power you can either follow Dr. Maxis' Path or Richtofen's Path.

Step 1: Build the Turbine/Aquire EMP Grenades - In the starting room, grab the Mannequin, Airplane Tail and Fan. Build them on the Workbench to creat the Turbine. Make sure everyone grabs one. You will then have to aquire the EMP Grenades from the Mystery Box. If you choose Maxis' Path, you only need one person to obtain them. If you do Richtofen's Path, all four players need them.

Step 2: Building the Obelisk/Pylon - First, you will need to grab the Meteor. It is located in the hole in the wall at the Bus Depot. Next, another part is needed, the Wooden Board. It is either located in the area right near the power room, where Tombstone and a Workbench are located. The other possible spawn is in the tunnel between the Bus Depot and the Diner on the left hand sidewalk. You will also need the Radio. One location is at the Diner stop. In the auto shop, near the car that is being worked on is a cabinet. If you jump up you can grab it. Finally, you need the Electrical Box. One location is at the Farm. In the house, it will be to the left of the refigerator. It may also be found in the downstairs portion of Nacht der Untoten. Now, you will need to get on the bus and travel in between the Farm to the Farm with Power Room. There will be a cornfield on the left. Once you see the opening in it, hop off the bus. Follow the maze until you get to the fence. Build the table here. The table will be saved to your online profile, meaning anytime you play online it will be there.

Step 3: Turn on the Power - You will have to go to the fourth bus stop, the second Farm but this time it has the Power Room. Open the little shed and drop down. Find the Hand, Switch and Control Panel. Bring them over to the Workbench and build them. Once the power is on, "Him" will be unleashed. This is where the path you choose can split up.

Maxis' Path

Step 4: Turn off the Power - After Maxis' has his little speech, turn the power off.

Step 5: Power the Obelisk/Pylon - You will need to get on the bus and drive between the Farm and the Farm with Power Room. On the left side you will see an opening in the cornfield. All plauers hop off the bus and follow the maze until you come up on the Obelisk/Pylon. Eventually, a thunderstorm cloud will come overhead and "Him" will spawn. When he does, two players place their Turbines, one on the left side and one on the right side of the Obelisk/Pylon. When "Him" gets within the wavelengths that the Turbines produce (Maxis will notify you when he's close enough), the player with the EMP Grenades should throw them at "Him". He will summer sault and go back up into the clouds.

Step 6: More Power - Keep the two Turbines at the Obelisk/Pylon. One player go to the Bus Dept and place their Turbine at the light post right where the tail end of the bus is when it's parked. The other player will go to the Diner. Place the Turbine near the light post that is located right next to the shed that can only be opened with a Turbine. Maxis will have enough power and you will have completed this path.

Richtofen's Path

Step 4: The Power - For this path, keep the power on. Exit the area and Richtofen will begin talking to the character Samuel.

Step 5: Building the Jet Engine Gun - First, you must find the Cables. They are located in the Power Plant portion of the Farm with Power Room. Next is the Jet Engine, which is located in the tunnel connecting the Bus Depot and Diner. The Handle is located in Nacht der Untoten. It is located in the cornfield between the Farm with Power Room and the Town. The Handle will be in one of a few places in the building. The final part if the Gage. While travelling in the bus from the Farm with Power Room to the Town, you will come across a Cabin on the right side of the bus' path. Go in and grab the part. Now, go to the Town. In the building across from the bank (on the other side of where the bus parks) is a bar. Go in and build all the parts on the Workbench. One person take the Jet Engine Gun.

Step 6: Powering the Obelisk/Pylon - Take the Jet Engine Gun over to the Obelisk/Pylon and shoot it at the Radio and Meteor combo. Eventually, a fire will start. It will be some power, but not enough. You will have to sit around the Obelisk/Pylon killing all the zombies until Richtofen says that there is too much power.

Step 7: Lowering the Power - There is too much power, so you must lower it. Like I said earlier, if you choose this path ALL players must have the EMP Grenades. This will take a while and a lot of luck, especially since it is all four who need it. All four players will have to find a seperate light post that is emitting a Green Light. When each player is at a seperate light, at the same time all players should throw an EMP Grenade at the base of the light post. It will then start poofing out a purple cloud. Richtofen will then have enough power.

Don't Fire Until You See
In TranZit, have all doors opened without being set on fire.

This will be a little tricky. For this trophy, you cannot step on the Lava or have a zombie that is set on fire explode near you. Those two things will cause you to catch fire. You will only need a good amount o points, some grenades and the Turbine. I find it easier to go location by location and getting enough points to open the doors in that area then move on. Playing solo may be a little harder, but if you play co-op you and your partner could take turns. One could sit in the bis and only get out when there is no Lava around, while the other person opens the doors. In the Bus Depot you must build the Turbine at the Workbench. It consists of the Mannequin, Fan and Airplane Tail.

Bus Depot: There are two white doors that must be opened with the Turbine and one other door for 750 points.

Diner Get off the right door on the bus. Open the door to the diner which costs 750 points. Exit the other way out of the diner and open the door to the auto shop for 750 points. There is a shack to the left you must open with the Turbine.

Farm: Right when you hop of you must open a gate for 750 points. In front of the big rig there are two doors that need to be opened with the Turbine, but opening one will open the other. There is a house to the right, open the front door for 750 points.

Farm with Power Room: There is a door to a little shack, it is the only door in this part, and costs 750 points. After you open that door and drop down, turn around. There is a door with a lightning bolt on it. Set the Turbine in front of it and leave it for a few seconds, then pick it up. Go to the opposite side of this area and you will see a garage door looking thing. Place the Turbine in front of it to open it.

Town: Get off the bus and open the door to the bank for 1,000 points. Once inside, throw a Grenade at the bank vault door, it will blow open. Enter the vault and throw a Grenade at the second vault door and it too will blow open. On the other side of the street front where the bus dropped you off is a door to open for 750 points. To the right of the bank there are a set of steps. At the top is a door to open for 750 points. Walk off the ledge directly in front of you and turn right. Place the Turbine in front of the door.

The Light Of Their Eyes
In Green Run, pacify at least 10 zombies with 1 EMP.

This is done on TranZit. You will need to get the EMP Grenades from the Mystery Box. Once you get them from it, you will need to round up a group of ten+ zombies (just to be safe). I recommend doing this at the Diner stop. They will not kill the zombies, it will only stun them for a few seconds. When the group is big enough, throw the grenade right in the middle of them. Once you get to around Round 5 there will be enough zombies that spawn at once to do this. This trophy has a bit of a delay though, so wait at least thirty seconds before you try again.

Undead Man's Party Bus
In TranZit, complete all additions to the bus in 1 game.

The Bus has three equippable items that can make it a little safer for you. The Ladder is attached to the back right of the Bus (if looking at it from the front. The Bumper/Plow is attached to the front. The Internal Ladder/Roof Hatch is attached in the inside of the Bus, near the driver. The parts can spawn in three of four locations: Bus Depot, Diner, Farm and Town. Since there are three parts and four locations, one will obviously be vacant. The parts are hidden in rooms blocked by a very white door. When you approach the door, instead of saying how much it costs it will say you need a source of power to open it. This is where the Turbine comes in, it is the only thing that can open those doors. In the Bus Depot, the part may be in the room next to the Workbench. At the Diner, the part may be in the shed to the left of the building where the Mystery Box spawns. At the Farm, a part may be in the shed in front of the big rig, in between the barn and house. Finally, in the Town, if you look in the direction the front of the Bus is pointing and go that way, you will see the door on the right near the rubble barricade. This room also happens to be right under Juggernaut.

Dance On My Grave
In Green Run, aquire your Tombstone.

Firstly, we are going to treat Green Run as being TranZit. Green Run is just the name of the map. In order to aquire your tombstone, you must buy the Tombstone Perk. It costs 2,000 points and if you buy it, when you die it will leave a tombstone as a Power-Up that only the player who had it can pick up. When you pick it up, it will give you back all weapons and perks you had when you died. Tombstone is located at the second farm area. The only way to get to it is by opening the little shed and going into the labs. Find all the parts to build the power switch and turn it on. Let the electricity machine do its job, and the big garage door in the power room will open after. If you head up the stairs and jump across the gap to the other platform, Tombstone will be sitting along the railing. The best way to go about this is to play with at least one other person or a group. Turn on the power and whoever needs to buy the perk, do so. Then, leave one zombie or one crawler and either let it down the players with Tombstone or just cook a grenade at let it explode in your hands. Then, do not get revived, bleed out. The tombstone will appear where you died. Have the remainign player(s) kill the final zombie or crawler and you will respawn. Quickly grab your tombstone and the trophy will pop.

Standard Equipment Map Vary
In TranZit, aquire 4 different equippable items in 1 game.

TranZit has five buildable objects, but the easiest are the four I will list. An object is found at every stop, every stop has a Workbench and there are various parts you need to build the object. Once the object has been built, you must pick it up, and to be on the safe side make sure you use it at least once (simply place it on the ground).

Turbine: Located at the Bus Depot, it requires the mannequin, fan and airplane tail.

Zombie Shield: At the Diner bus stop, look for a car door and dolly (furniture mover).

Machine Gun Turret: While at the Farm, look for the lawn mower, machine gun and ammo box.

Electric Trap: When you get to the Farm that also contains the Power Room, look for a car battery, a sculpture and a headlight.

The lever to turn on the power does not count as an object. Also, the Jet Cannon is another object which is built at the Workbench in the Town. At this time, I do not know the location of the parts. I will add it when I do.

You Have No Power Over Me
In TranZit, defeat "him" without being attacked by "him".

"Him" is the boos of TranZit so to speak. The easiest and quickest way to kill him is by using the EMP Grenade. Your first objective will be to get these from the Mystery Box. Once you get them from the box, your quest can begin. You will have to go to the fourth location of the map, the Farm with a Bunker. Go into the little shed and enter the power room. Build the power switch and turn it out. The big machine in the middle of the room will activate. You will see "Him" at the top, and then the machine will turn off. "Him" will only spawn between rounds. What you need to do is leave one zombie at the end of a round. When the Lightnight Cloud appears overhead, kill the final zombie. "Him" will spawn via a lightning bolt that reaches the ground. When it does spawn, throw both of your EMP Grenades and when they explode, "Him" will do a summer-salt and go back up to the cloud. Also, I have been told that you are allowed to get hit, you just can't die from it.

I Don't Think They Exist
In TranZit, kill one of the denizens of the forest while it is latched on to you.

Denizens of the Forest are one of the two new zombie types in Black Ops II. They do not actually come from the forest. During your play in TranZit, you will notice there are a bunch of area that are foggy and/or dusty. You will also notice that you find it only on the paths to main locations on the map. If you enter one of these area on foot or fall of the bus in an area like this, a Denizen will come after you. You can tell because you will hear a loud shriek. Denizens are about the size of a baby or small child, have a large head and a tail. They are also very skinny things. They will fly through the air and latch on your head and scratch your face. There are only two ways to get them off: either melee about five times and they will die or have a friend shoot them off. For this trophy, you must knife the Denizen until it unlatches from your face and dies. Wait until the end of a round and get a slow zombie or a crawler. Then, just walk out a little bit into the fog and get on to latch on to you. I had to do it a few times until the trophy unlocked, but it will unlock within the first few attempts. Also, just to add to your knowledge, Denizens do not award points and will not drop Power-Ups.

Fuel Efficient
In TranZit, use an alternative mode of transportation.

The main mode of transportation is the bus, but there is one more thing you could do. First, you will need to build the Turbine. Once you get outside, there will be a Street Light right behind the left side of the bus. Place the Turbine there. The light will now start to emit a green light/halo. Now, go into the fog to the left and let a Denizen latch on to you. Walk/Run over to the Street Light and the Denizen will off directly underneath and create a portal. Hop in and you will be transported to another part of the map. You could also just wait until you have the power turned on, that way many more Street Lights will be available.

Happy Hour
In TranZit, buy 2 different perks before turning on the power.

Yes you can actually buy perks without turning on the power. You can build objects in TranZit, one of them being the Turbine. There is a Workbench in the starting room (the Bus Depot). In the room you start in, there are three parts you need to find and put together. The Mannequin is located in the middle of the room. The Fan is located on a chair near the Workbench. Finally, the Airplane Tail is located right next to the small circular room, on the floor. When they are all put together and you use the object, it will act as a source of power, meaning you won't need the power to be turned on to buy perks. However, if you want the perk to remain active, you must keep the Turbine in front of the perk. Now you could do this one of two ways. You could play solo, and buy Quick Revive for 500 points. Then, get on the bus and go to the next area. You will have to go into the Diner, and in there you will find Speed-Cola and it will cost you 3,000 points. Alternately, you could play with a group and buy those same two perks.

[top]Choices & Endings Guide

This guide will detail specific choices in the game and how those choices play out and effect the overall ending of the story.

During the level you will capture Kravchenko (who we all thought was dead) and Woods will interrogate him. During this scene, numbers will start flashing in Mason's head. He will cock and load his M1911 and begin to hold it at Kravchenko's head. To resist, repeatidly tap . If you successfully resist, you will learn about a mole in the CIA and will be mentioned when Woods and Mason capture Noriega in Suffer With Me.

Karma/Dispatch: Rescue or Ignore Chloe (affects Showdown , Ship Shape, and Good Karma)
During this level, Chloe will be taken by DeFalco. If she is taken by him and you do not rescue her in Dispatch, she will be absent on Odysseus and will not be able to help reboot the defenses or stop Menendez' cyber attack later in the game. If you save her in Karma, this means DeFalco will be killed and not be present in later missions. If you save her is Dispatch, DeFalco will live to later in the game. If Chloe is saved, but Harper is on the Obama in Odysseus, she will be killed. She will not be able to fend off the attacks. If Farid is on the boat with her, she can fend off the attacks.

If you shoot Mason two times anywhere but in the head, he will visit Woods at the Vault. Depending on choices, Alex and David could have a possible family reunion in the Vault.

Achilles' Veil: Kill Harper or Menendez (affects Showdown , Ship Shape, Good Karma, and Ultimate Sacrifice)
If you kill Harper, Farid will remain in the undercover status. If Chloe survived but DeFalco was killed, Salazar will kill Farid. If Chloe survived and DeFalco lived, Farid will shoot DeFalco before being killed by Salazar. If you neglected to rescue Chloe, Farid and DeFalco will die in a shootout. If you try to kill Menendez, Harper will live. He will be present in later missions. If Chloe survived, he will not be able to protect Chloe and she will be killed.

Odysseus: Kill or Wound Briggs (affects Ship Shape and Good Karma)
When you play as Menendez, you have the choice of killing or wounding Briggs. Killing him will not allow him to reactivate the defenses with Chloe if she survived. If he lives, there is a chance that the defenses can be activated and the Obama could be saved.

Cordis Die: Snipe or Rappel (affects only a challenge in the level)
Early on in the mission, you have the choice to snipe or rappel. Niether choice has a major effect on the story, just how you play out the next few minutes.

Judgement Day: Kill or Capture Menendez (affects Dead or Alive, but will be obtained no matter the choice.)
At the end of the level, David can kill or caputre Menendez. If you kill him, Cordis Die will uprise (that's the only thing that happens due to his death). If you capture him and Chloe lives, Menendez will be put in jail and his cyber attack will be prevented thanks to Chloe. He will then witness Chloe on Jimmy Kimmel and will bash his head into the TV. If you capture him but Chloe did not survive, during the cyber attack Menendez will be freed from his cell. He will sneak into the Vault and talk to Woods. Menendez will slit Woods throat and lay him in bed. A year later, Menendez will dig up his sister's, Josefina's, grave. He will douse himself in gasoline and ready a match/lighter. Cordis Die may uprise as well.

Endings Guide

This portion will deatil all of the possible endings (or most of them), no matter how closely they are related or how far apart they are. Personally, I found four decisions that effect the endings the most: whether you save or kill Alex Mason, your choice of killing Harper or trying to kill Mendendez while playing as Farid, if you rescue Chloe in Karma or Dispatch or don't rescue her at all/she dies on the Obama and whether you capture or kill Menendez. It basically makes sixteen combinations. I will try to detail all sixteen as much as possible.

Save Alex Mason, Save Chloe, Kill Harper, Kill Menendez - Alex Mason will show up at the Vault, revealing to Woods that he survived the events in Panama. As Alex and Woods catch up, David goes to visit Woods as well. Woods reintroduces the two and they have a brief chat. A post death tape of Menendez goes viral. Cordis Die begins to uprise.

Save Alex Mason, Save Chloe, Kill Harper, Capture Menendez - Menendez is thrown in jail. Alex appears at the Vault, revealing to Woods that he survived the events in Panama. David goes to visit Woods, and Woods reintroduces the two for a quick reunion. Due to Chloe surviving, she is able to stop a cyber attack by Menendez. Chloe then goes on Jimmy Kimmel for "saving the world" and being the only celbrity that has actually done something noteworthy. Menendez sees this on the tv in his jail cell, and bashes his head into the tv.
