[top]Introduction


In 2013, San Diego is kinetically bombarded by an American super weapon called the Orbital Defense Initiative (ODIN), after a group called the "Federation" takes it over, resulting in what becomes known as "The Event." As a result, the global balance of power changes: many countries are decimated, geographical landscapes change, and the United States ceases to be a superpower. America's industry and infrastructure are devastated, casualties are high, and the country is vulnerable to external threats.


Ten years later, In 2023, the "Federation" emerges as the world's dominant superpower and invades the US. With Federation forces occupying large swaths of American territory and the government in danger of collapse, remnants of the US military mobilize the Ghosts to stop the invaders and take back what's left of the US. Part of the counteroffensive involves hacking into the Federation space station Loki and use it against Federation forces on the ground.


[top]Tips & Strategies

Story

Use Cover - You will need to take a lot of cover if your playing the game on "Veteran" and running towards the enemies and shooting just won't work. Once you start to see blood splatters it's time to get some cover even the game will tell you that you are hurt and advise you to take cover. Use crates, barriers, walls.....what ever you can find until your health recovers and try again.

Aim Down The Sights - I would use this for slow time attacks and when enemies are at distance to increase your accuracy. To aim down the sight you will need to quickly press and release and it will lock onto the target every time you start to look down the sights, allowing you to be aiming at the target with one press of a button.

Ammo - Make sure you have enough ammo by topping up at crates when prompted where you need to press and hold . You can also pick up ammo by walking over dead enemies ammo as long as you have the same weapon in your hands.

Extinction

You earn skill points by defeating hives and completing challenges. Skills points let you upgrade weapons etc

Enemies

When shooting enemies you will see some kind of symbol showing up such as a yellow shield, an X or an X in red/orange colour:
space
  • Yellow Shield - This means your attack/shot did them no harm
  • Normal X - This means your attack/shot did them some harm but not as much as you could of.
  • Red/Orange X - This means your attack/shot did them great harm in their weak spot. You also receive 50% more cash for killing them.
space
The enemies will come in the form of:
space
  • Standard Aliens - This will be your main enemy through the game. Nothing special and easily dealt with by using melee attacks and weapons.
  • Red Glowing Aliens - They will appear from a large rock that falls from the sky. Several of them will suddenly disperse from the rock and beware as they are fast.
  • Scorpions - These will climb everywhere such as roof tops and side of buildings. They will shoot out lots of venomous yellow substance which will cause your health to go down if you get caught up in it so ideally kill these first.
  • Rhinos - They normally appear towards the end of the game in the Cabin area. They are big, solid and need alot of fire power. Sentry guns and piercing bullets are the way to go on these.
space
Hives

You can speed up attacking the main the main hives other than the helicopter that automatically assists you. Whilst waiting for the helicopter to join you, each team member should grab as many propane tanks as possible and place them in the main hive. On a single level, you could get around 8+ so look everywhere and usually on each game they are in the same place. Once they have all be placed, the helicopter will start shooting at the hive and should make contact with the propane tanks otherwise just stand back and shoot them. This will increase the damage to the hive and quicken the time it takes to kill it off. I would also suggest leaving ammo boxes in front of the hive as your bullets will also kill the hive so keep shooting the big main section at the top and keep reloading your bullets.

Classes/Upgrades

Weapon Specialist
In this class you will activate 20% more bullet damage and you can use your skill points to upgrade:
space
  • Swap weapons faster, move faster while ADS, and fast offhand use
  • Faster ADS
  • Faster reloading
  • 50% more bullet damage and less spread
space
Tank
In this class you will activate 25% more health and you can use your skill points to upgrade:
space
  • Melee attacks do 25% more damage
  • 50% more health
  • 75% more health + 50% more melee damage
  • 100% more health + 100% more melee damage
space
Engineer
In this class you will activate providing more armor for the drill and earn more cash and you can use your skill points to upgrade:
space
  • Repair the drill faster
  • Traps earn cash back
  • Increased protection while repairing the drill and traps last longer
  • Increased trap and explosive damage and a larger wallet to hold more cash
space
Medic
In this class you will activate reviving team mates more quickly and you can use your skill points to upgrade:
space
  • Move faster + increased protection while reviving others
  • Longer sprint + teammates near you regenerate health faster
  • Ignore ongoing damage from gas clouds
  • Very fast movement + unlimited distance team health regeneration
space
Safeguard
space
  • The first round is a bonus round where special loot will drop in the form of blue crates. I recommend that you try and obtain the sentry gun over any other item. You can hold up to several crates at any one time and you will also get a chance to obtain more loot in later levels. You special items are shown to the bottom right of your screen.
  • You will also get to obtain perks from green crates such as faster reloading, sprint etc. You can see your current perks to the bottom left of your screen. I would collect as many different ones as you can until you have them all and you won't lose them until you die. Green perks also contain weapons and I would stay away from sniper guns as you won't get much of a chance to use it.
  • Team work is a must and I recommend you stay together so that you can fight off the enemies together and revive each other quicker and easier.
  • Find areas on a map where you are in a corner or section where there is a wall/fence behind you so that you can concentrate on the enemies in front of you. If equipped, use your sentry guns to cover one direction such as your left side so that you pay more attention to your right. Working as a team will make this process easier and quicker to defeat the enemies.
  • Pick up any red glowing items such as the large circles with a star in the middle as this will give your team a boost such as armor, ammo etc.

Show off your new shiny platinum trophy


[top]Trophies

[top]
Federated
Earn all available Trophies for Call of Duty Ghosts

Unlock all of the below trophies to get this shiny new platinum.

[top]
Ghost Stories
Escape. (Complete "Ghost Stories" on any difficulty.)





This is the first mission in the game, which gets you used to running, jumping and shooting so that you get comfortable with your controls. When you first start the mission, you will eventually be running through a wooded area and into a house by following your partner. The game then takes you back in time and you will find yourself floating in outer space and again just keep following your partner and follow the on screen prompts. The game will then take you back to when you was running through the wooded area and onto the streets. Just keep following your partner and eventually the mission will end and the trophy will unlock after you see the official game logo.

[top]
Spatial Awareness
Kill your first enemy in the Call of Duty Ghosts campaign.





This will be the first trophy you unlock in the game pretty early on. When you first start the game, you will eventually be running through a wooded area and into a house. The game then takes you back in time and you will find yourself floating in outer space. You need to ascend to the space craft entrance which will be glowing blue and the door will eventually open as you get nearby. The space craft gets taken over by enemies once you get inside and you will find yourself in a position where a gun will float towards you after your partner shoots one of them. You then need to move the stick left and to shoot the enemy and the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Brave New World
Rendez-vous in Fort Santa Monica. (Complete "Brave New World" on any difficulty.)






In this mission you get to play with your dog named "Riley". At the start of the mission, just follow your partner and Riley through the empty building until you get outside. Once outside you will eventually meet some enemies where Riley will assist you by running up to them and biting them to death. Eventually you will get to an area with a low flying helicopter and tons of enemies. Take cover, use grenades and make sure you have enough ammo. Check out the Liberty Wall trophy for more details once you get to the area where you need to shoot down the two choppers. Eventually you will get on a vehicle at the end and travel to see your partners father. The trophy will unlock shortly afterwards.

[top]
Liberty Wall
Take down both attack helicopters.



You will need to take down both of the enemy choppers that appear as you get near the bridge. Firstly you will need to pick up a MAAWA rocket launcher which you find on top of the crates nearby. The first chopper will hover above the bridge that you see in front of you where you will need to point your red laser directly at the chopper with your MAAWA rocket launcher and shoot. Once you take down that chopper, I suggest hiding behind one of the cement barriers as the next chopper will suddenly appear and fly directly over you whilst shooting at you. Reload your weapon, wait a few seconds and that chopper will reappear, where you will again need to point your red laser directly at the chopper with your MAAWA rocket launcher and shoot. The trophy will unlock after the second chopper crashes.

NOTE: This area is a checkpoint area so you will respawn back to this area if you die.

[top]
No Man's Land
Make it to San Diego. (Complete "No Man's Land" on any difficulty.)





In this mission Riley will be heavily involved and can assist you by moving towards an enemy until they glow orange and pressing to make Riley bite them to death. During the mission, you will automatically have to play as Riley in certain parts where you need to press whilst next to him when prompted, where you can walk up to enemies and bite them to death yourself. Check out the Blimey O'Riley trophy for tips on how to use Riley more efficiently.

[top]
Blimey O'Riley
Pounce on 10 enemies whilst controlling Riley



To unlock this trophy you need to pounce on 10 enemies whilst controlling Riley during this mission. There are more then 10 enemies in this mission for Riley to kill, so don't worry too much. This means you must sync with Riley by pressing when next to him when prompted and pressing to kill enemies when you are next to them and you can also distract enemies by pressing to make him bark whilst using him as a movable character. To remain throughout in stealth mode, kill the enemies from behind only. This trophy excludes any kills made by Riley when you highlight an enemy and send Riley to go kill them.

[top]
Struck Down
Find Ajax. (Complete "Struck Down" on any difficulty.)





At the start of the mission, you will need to scan the stadium for Ajax and can be located in the media box area at distance in front of you. The next stage you will need to equip yourself with the MK32 Holographic weapon which is just in front of you. When the convey goes past just shoot as many vehicles as you can but the larger trucks are the most important ones. Remember to use Riley as much as possible when fighting off the enemies once in the food court area of the stadium. You will also get to use the remote sniper on four separate occasions so hit as many enemies as you can using this when prompted especially at the end of the mission when escaping the stadium.

[top]
Waste not
Every shot with the remote sniper hits a person or vehicle.



During this mission you will have to use the remote sniper 4 times. You cannot miss these opportunities, as it's required to progress in the mission. Only fire when your crosshairs turn yellow. It will be a guaranteed hit.
SPACE
  • In the first sequence, you must kill at least one enemy and your team will do the rest.
  • In the second sequence, you must take out 4 enemies with rocket launchers.
  • In the third sequence, you must clear an airfield and kill several enemies.
  • In the fourth sequence, you must take out the 3 enemies that fire their MGs from vehicles.
SPACE
NOTE: If you miss a shot, you can pause the game and restart the checkpoint at any time. Even if you restart, you will still earn the trophy in the end.

[top]
Homecoming
Defend LA. (Complete "Homecoming" on any difficulty.)





At the start of the mission, just follow your partners until you reach the first building where you will need to go upstairs and use the large gun to shoot down as many choppers as you can. Eventually you will be prompted to use your A-10 weapon by pressing . and shooting all the yellow targets as quick as possible. The larger yellow spots are helicopters/tanks and the smaller yellow targets are enemies on foot. When you run through the trenches take loads of cover and use your grenades as you will have many enemies to fight off.

[top]
Go Ugly Early
A-10 strafe 50 enemies



During the mission you will eventually be prompted to use your A-10 weapon by pressing . and shooting all the yellow targets as quick as possible. The larger yellow spots are choppers/tanks and the smaller yellow targets are enemies on foot. To unlock this trophy you will need to kill at least 50 enemies so you should just focus on the enemies on foot as shooting down choppers/tanks wont rack up your count as fast. Personally I unlocked this trophy on my second go on the A-10 but you will get four chances to use it.

[top]
Legends Never Die
Hunt down Almagro. (Complete "Legends Never Die" on any difficulty.)





In this mission you will be fighting off enemies from the start so be prepared, use cover and make sure you have ammo. You will have a mixture of walking through empty buildings and swimming under water. Whilst under water, you can hold your breath and use melee attacks but only for a limited time only so don't spend too long under water. Once you get onto the chopper at the end of the mission, you will get several on screen prompts so just follow them and the mission will eventually come to an end.

[top]
It Came from Below!
Kill 6 enemies with the knife while underwater in "Legends Never Die".



There are three different locations during this mission where you can kill enemies while underwater. The water is just waist-deep, so you have to crouch and then kill enemies with your knife. You should definitely play on the easiest difficulty "Rookie" for this. Enemies will still be shooting at you when you go underwater and you have to get really close to them to perform knife kills. Just kill everyone standing in water. Run up to them, crouch and use the knife. In total you will need to kill 6 enemies but the first enemy is part of the mission so you just need to focus on the remaining 5 enemies.

[top]
Federation Day
Gather Intel on Rorke. (Complete "Federation Day" on any difficulty.)





At the start of the mission you will need to press to activate the optic scanner when prompted and use to zoom onto the top of the building in front of you where a helicopter will shortly land. You will then need to press to get facial ID from the target which will be the male in the grey suit holding a briefcase. You can only do this when he faces you, which you can do quickly as he leaves the helicopter or wait until after he exits the building.
Once prompted go to one of the large crates on your rooftop, press to open it up so that you can get your zipline launcher and fire at the building that you were just looking at. Hook up to the zipline, zip over to the building and follow your team mates instructions on killing the enemies. Once in the building, upload the virus to the hard drive and you will have enough time to get to 100% before the enemies walk towards you where you then need to step forward and to the left to hide. Once they leave, follow your team mate where you will hook up to the ropes again to kill further enemies. Just follow your team mates instructions to kill further enemies and disable the elevator. You will then get a wave load of enemies just around the corner so use cover, grenades and keep low. Head outside the building, rappel down the building pressing until you need to re-enter the building and push through whilst killing off enemies but stay low and prone. The mission will shortly end after you have interrogated Ramos and escaped the building.

[top]
Sleeping Beauty
Kill the sleeping guy in face down rappel section



After uploading the virus in the server room, you will have to rappel down the building. There are two enemies on a balcony. Kill them first to avoid being detected. Two floors below that balcony is an enemy sleeping in a chair. Shoot him through the window to unlock this trophy.

[top]
Carbon Faceprint
Catch Photocopier with your face



You will finally reach a roof top whilst on the "Capture the HVT" objective within this mission. Walk towards the rope that is on the glowing on the floor next to the barrier facing the other sky scrapper buildings. You will then need to hook up to the rappel, where you will abseil down the side of the buildings few times and as you stop to look up, you will notice the building exploding. Remain in that spot and shoot off any enemies you see above you, where eventually you will see a large photocopier flying towards you from above. Just face the photocopier and let it hit you directly in the face and the trophy will unlock.

[top]
Birds of Prey
Capture Rorke (Complete "Birds of Prey" on any difficulty.)





In this mission, you get to take control of an Apache chopper to fly around bombing and shooting enemies. You need to press to fire missiles and to fire your machine gun. Just fly around and destroy the tanks and enemies highlighted on your screen and press to release your flares if an enemies missile is locked onto you. Once you have eliminated all the enemies, you will be prompted to land and enter once of the buildings. You will need to eliminate the enemies room by room so make sure you have enough ammo or even change your weapons that you found along the way. Eventually you will Rorke's location and the mission will end.

[top]
Burn Baby Burn
Destroy 80 Fuel containers.



In the beginning of this mission, you will be using a helicopter and have to take out lots of enemies in a town. There are fuel containers at almost every building. Some of them are on rooftops, some are around houses and some are even on bridges. Simply destroy as many of them as you can.

[top]
The Hunted
Make it out alive (Complete "The Hunted" on any difficulty.)





At the start of the mission, you will need to press to grab Rorke's chair and push forwards to integrate Rorke by pushing him towards the open end of the plane. Eventually you will end up jumping off the plane and landing in a tree where you need to press to use your knife to cut yourself down. You will then need to meet up with your team mates by sticking to the left side of the area and watching the radar on your wrist. Nearby enemies will be shown with red dots on the radar. You can either stealth through the forest or just run through and shoot enemies but ideally stealth is the easiest way. Always stay crouched to avoid being noticed and if need be kill enemies from behind. When you reach the second area you will see some burning rubble where you need to move slowly and stick to the left side again until you reach your team. From this point on, you will only need to follow your teammates and do exactly what they tell you to do.

[top]
Jungle Ghosts
Finish the mission without breaking stealth.



You will have to finish the entire mission from start to finish without ever being spotted by an enemy. In the first part of the mission you are on your own. Stick to the left side of the area and watch the radar. Nearby enemies will be shown with red dots on the radar. Feel free to kill enemies if needed. Always stay crouched to avoid being noticed. In the second area you will see some burning rubble. Move slowly and stick to the left side again until you reach your team. From this point on, you will only need to follow your teammates and do exactly what they tell you to do. If you are being spotted, you can restart the checkpoint and will still get the trophy in the end.

[top]
Clockwork
Hack the system (Complete "Clockwork" on any difficulty.)





At the start of the mission you will need to shoot several enemies in the towers from a distance by following your partners instructions where you will then steal a vehicle and sneak into the enemy HQ. Once inside again just follow the on screen prompts and place the virus in the system. You eventually get to a safe where you need to drill two holes. Whilst drilling be very careful not to go to far and stop once you are in the middle of the cross section shown in the x ray machine above you.

Make your way through the building, killing any enemies on the way until you get to a platform where you dumped your bag. Whilst your team mates hack the computers, you will need to set up a defense system by using a turret, clay mores and mines that are located on the table in front of you. I recommend placing the turret facing forwards but at a slight angle towards the right side of the stairs and placed the clay mores and mines around and along the stairs either side of the platform. Eventually the enemies will storm your platform where your equipment will take care of most of them. I would recommend using cover behind the rear table and killing any enemies that manage to sneak past the turret and mines. Even on Veteran difficulty this shouldn't be a problem and quite manageable. To the right of your screen you will see how long you will need to fight off the enemies by the file download bar.

Towards the end of the mission, the enemies will discover who you really are and you make off in a vehicle. Use the vehicle turret to blow up the enemy vehicles by either placing holes in the ice in front of them or just blowing their vehicle directly but be careful of the enemies above you in the tunnel also.

[top]
Deep Freeze
Drop 8 vehicles into ice holes.



At the very end of this mission, you will have to escape an enemy facility. While one of your teammates is driving, you will gain control over a grenade launcher turret. Lots of vehicles will come after you. Instead of shooting them directly, you will have to shoot a little bit in front of them to blow a hole into the ground. If they drive over it, the vehicle and its crew will be incapacitated which counts towards this trophy. Do this to 8 different vehicles before reaching the end of the mission.

[top]
Atlas Falls
Distract the Federation Fleet. (Complete "Atlas Falls" on any difficulty.)





This mission will start underwater where you will need to detonate the bombs and enemies will suddenly drop down into the water. Being under water effects your bullets so you will need to shoot each enemy around 2-3 times before they die. Once on the ground just keep throwing your grenades, use cover and shoot the enemies but you will need to push forward to progress. There will be several places for you to use as cover such as under window ledges and behind crates so use them well and remember not to get your health back to 100% before popping out of cover. When you get to breach the door just throw a flash bang in afterwards, then a grenade and keep repeating until all or most of the enemies have been killed off before moving on.
Once in the command center, keep the pressure gauge colour green by moving up and down slightly. If you fail to keep control on the pressure then it will blow and you will need to redo this again but this is a checkpoint area so you will just go back to this point. Once you leave the command center, just keep running and follow your team mates to the helicopter.

[top]
Grindin'
Completing the console section on first attempt.



Towards the end of this mission, you will have to use a console to regulate the pressure of some valves. It's part of the story and cannot be missed. There will be three bars on the screen. You need to keep them in the middle, so they are colored green. Use to move the bars up and down to keep them in the green zone but I would only tap up and down slightly. It doesn't matter if they drop to the yellow zone for just a moment, as long as you bring them back to the green zone quick enough.

NOTE: If you fail to do it first time then you will need to repeat the whole mission again and reloaded the last checkpoint will not work.

[top]
Piece of cake
Storm the common room and kill everyone without taking damage on veteran.



After using the grapnel gun you will have to kill a bunch of enemies and come to the common room. You will now have to breach the door (part of the story, cannot be missed). Breach it and throw all of your flashbangs and frag grenades to kill everyone inside. Don't waste any grenades before reaching this room. You'll need every single one. If you don't kill all enemies with your grenades, then let your teammates do the rest. They will also kill enemies for you and cannot die. If you are being hit, restart the checkpoint. Keep in mind that you have to play on veteran difficulty to unlock this trophy. Veteran difficulty is available from the beginning on and you can change the difficulty settings via mission select.

[top]
Into The Deep
Destroy the enemy ship (Complete "Into The Deep" on any difficulty.)





Throughout this mission you will be snorkeling underwater and your team mate will guide you through what to do. Near the beginning you will notice a shark to your right so just stay next to the rock on your left as you swim past otherwise he will attack you. Remember whilst under water your bullets have less effect when shooting enemies so you will need to shoot each enemy around 2-3 times before they die. You shouldn't have any issues defeating enemies on this mission, just like being on ground use cover, distance and to go down and to go up. You shouldn't have any issues when you need to launch the Proteus missile at the ship on veteran as it's basically a straight line from your location so keep it steady. Towards the end of the mission, you will need to push forward for enemies to appear so be careful and as always use cover.

[top]
David & Goliath
Take down the LCS on the first go.



About halfway through the mission, you will have to use a torpedo to take down a warship. While guiding the torpedo you will automatically be using thermal vision and can see a red part on the side of the ship. Hit this red part to destroy the LCS immediately.

[top]
End of the Line
Storm the factory (Complete "End of the Line" on any difficulty.)





This is one of the shorter and easier missions in my opinion as your kills are mainly set up and easy to do for half the mission until you reach the room where you access the computer. After you've access the computer, enemies will be shooting at you from all angles so as always keep low and use plenty of cover. It becomes a little bit easier when your are prompted to press to use your thermal as the enemies will be in a smoke filled room so use this to your advantage as quick as you can. One of the enemies will also be carrying a riot shield which you could pick up and use as cover when taking out the enemies with laser pointed weapons but not necessary but an option. At the end of the mission, you will be escaping on the back of a vehicle and shooting off enemies so keep your weapon reloading as much as possible and aim for the gunner first before shooting the vehicle.

[top]
Cog in the machine
Kill 5 enemies without being detected before infiltrating Black Zone.



This can be done in the very beginning of the mission. You must quietly kill the first 5 enemies in this mission by yourself, without being seen or heard. Kills from your teammates don't count. You can shoot enemies with your silenced weapons to stay undetected.
space
  • The first kill will happen automatically when you jump down a ledge.
  • The second enemy is on the train yard.
  • The third enemy is together with three other enemies. Wait until your teammates arrive and shoot either one of the enemies. Your team will take out the rest.
  • The fourth and fifth enemy are behind the gate that your teammate opens for you. Prone and kill both of them very quickly before your teammates "steal" the kills from you.
space

[top]
Sin City
Plan your next move (Complete "Sin City" on any difficulty.)





This mission is in Las Vegas in an Egyptian style hotel which is based upon the real Luxor hotel. The enemies in this mission are a little bit harder and you will need to be more wiser and slower in my opinion. The game starts off with a few cut scenes before reaching an area where you and you family are tied up. You will eventually be prompted to press to attempt to grab Rorke's gun but you will fail. In veteran mode you will need to press a lot faster then in any other difficulty so you may possibly fail this a few times if not done right. When you are set free, find a decent weapon from any of the enemies you have just killed before setting off.

You will eventually get to the shopping mall area and enemies will descend upon you so use the cement ledge in front of you for cover. I recommend throwing a cooked grenade at the group of enemies to your right as they walk towards your direction at the beginning. Next slowly look up and take out the three enemies standing on top of the buildings as they will be a pain otherwise. Slowly look around to your left and right of your ledge and kill off the enemies until you team mates go down stairs. The enemies to the left were tougher compared to the right hand side so I recommend following your team mates down the right hand side. When you reach the escalators, you will get another wave of enemies and you will find that your ammo will be getting low so stock up and you may even top up your grenades by walking over the dead enemies. Try and stick to the right hand side, throw any grenades you have at them and use tons of cover behind the large posters and on the floor next to the escalators. Eventually you will go down the escalators and look out for one remaining enemy that will appear near the shutter to your right.

Eventually you will find yourself outside where Riley has been injured and you will need to press to pick him up and drop him down as you go along. Remember to pick up the LSAT heavy duty weapon next to Riley as this will come in handy. In this section you will need to eliminate enemies and push forwards in sections as you will also need to carry Riley bit by bit. Also you need to take out the 3-4 low flying helicopters as your progress so the LSAT will be very useful but beware, it takes time to reload. Just keep pushing through safely with Riley until help arrives.

Jack-pot

During this mission you will come to an Egyptian casino. Lots of enemies will ambush you there. Destroy all 20 slot machines by shooting their screens. At the end of the casino is a gate. One of your teammates will raise it for you. Go under it and you will reach a broken escalator. Before you walk down the escalator, look at the opposite side of the room to find five more slot machines. Destroy their screens and the trophy will unlock.

All or Nothing
Gather the troops (Complete "All or Nothing" on any difficulty.)





This is a short mission which can be completed in well under ten minutes and the first two minutes are cut scenes. When you reach outside, just follow your team mate, use cover and shoot the enemies whilst prone or just pop up every now and again. You will then gather up again, where now you will have access to a osprey target control device which you need to pick up when prompted by pressing . Then make your way to the area highlighted with "Defend" and start pressing next to the ropes hooked up to the rails to prevent enemies climbing aboard. When prompted press to use your osprey weapon and eliminate the enemies highlight in red squares by pressing for missiles and for the mini gun. Whilst in between using the osprey weapon, shoot the enemies in the speed boats and use cover behind the white barriers until they have been eliminated. You will then need to run to the highlighted around nearby and use a different missile weapon via a laptop. This is quite simple as you just need to move the pointer over any helicopters/speed boats and shoot them.

End of your rope
Cut a grappling hook rope with enemy on it.



In the beginning of the mission you will have to clear the flight deck of enemies. After that, you will have to pick up the Osprey targeting control. As soon as you pick it up, enemies will start attacking the ship from the side. They will come in dingies and throw grappling hooks up the ship. Wait until an enemy starts climbing the rope and cut it with your knife.

Severed Ties
Destroy the Federation's satellite array (Complete "Severed Ties" on any difficulty.)





You will be in a army tank during this mission where you need to press to use your machine gun, for pop smoke, for thermal, to fire a guarded round with to accelerate and to donate and press to toggle your weapons. Whilst following your team mates, you will need to shoot down three helicopters above you using the guarded rounds before moving onto the next stage. Eventually you will get to an area where you need to blow up the targets where I suggest popping some smoke near the target before moving in and destroying them.

Once in the helicopter, use the machine gun to kill all the enemies on the roof tops and in the tower. The gun has unlimited ammo and will not over heat so go mad until they have all died. Once inside the building, you will breach a room full on enemies where the easiest and quickest way to kill them is by shooting the fire extinguisher. Eventually you will launch a rocket as part of the story line and you will have 9 minutes to kill more enemies before leaving the area. Move through the building, killing off enemies whilst using lots of cover. When you get to the area where the elevator is, I recommend throwing a flash bang then a grenade or shooting them into the elevator to kill them off quicker and easier. You will then be back in the tanks where the timer continues to count down where you need to take out the last few targets before finishing off the mission.

[top]
Fly-by-wire
Take out helicopters with remote missile 3/3.



Very shortly after the mission starts, you will see a prompt on the screen that says "press to switch to guided rounds". Once you see this, attack helicopters will come in. Do as you are told and switch to guided rounds to shoot three of them down. If you miss any then just reload to last checkpoint.

[top]
LOKI
Commandeer the enemy space station. (Complete "Loki" on any difficulty.)





This is a very short mission out in space being around seven minutes long with the first minute being a cut scene. Whilst moving around in space use to go up and to go down. Slowly make your way to the opening to the space shuttle whilst covering behind parts of the shuttle shooting enemies. Whilst in space your bullets will have less effect on the enemies and you will need to shoot them 2-3 times to kill them off. Eventually you will set off some charges and get your hands on a laptop which gives you access to kill tons of enemies before ending the mission.

[top]
They look like ants
Destroy all enemy ground targets and kill no allies with the rods.



At the very end of this mission, you will be controlling weapons from outer space. You can see the exact blast radius when aiming indicated by the circle. The ammo is unlimited, so shoot as often as you want. Take out the foot soldiers first highlighted in yellow and then destroy the main targets. Especially at the end you should pay attention and carefully kill all enemies before blowing up the final target. Don't aim anywhere near you allies highlighted in blue or they will die. If you believe to have killed some by accident, restart the checkpoint right away.

[top]
The Ghost Killer
Confront Rorke (Complete "The Ghost Killer" on any difficulty.)





This is the final mission in the story mode where you finally catch up with Rorke. You and Hesh will make your way down a fast moving train whilst telling you where the enemies are so you just need to take cover and shoot. You will need to jump from carriage to carriage by pressing otherwise you will fall off. I recommend picking up the LSAT heavy duty weapon off one of the dead enemies whilst making your way down and this will come in useful when the helicopters start shooting at you shortly afterwards. Eventually you will breach the front of the train, where you will encounter Rorke. I won't spoil the ending so just follow the on screen prompts and enjoy the ending.

[top]
Tickets please
Shoot the grapple guys off the side of the train.



After killing the first enemies in this mission, you will be attacked by several helicopters. A little bit further the grapple guys will climb up the train. There are four of them, but for this trophy you only need to kill two but you must kill them before they get up the train. You will need to run pretty fast to beat them but I got it by shooting the enemy on the right first then then the third enemy that climbs up from the left. Restart the checkpoint if you need to try again.

Audiophile
Collect all 18 Rorke files.

There are a total of 18 Rorke Files to collect throughout the game. The files are in a form of a laptop where you need to walk up to the laptop, press and hold to download the file.
The laptop looks like the below:

There is one Rorke File to collect on each mission as detailed below and the trophy will unlock once you've collected all 18 of them. The game saves each time you pick up a file, so you don't have to finish the mission or wait till the next checkpoint.

NOTE: You can view which files you have and haven't collected via the front menu screen. Whilst playing a mission you can press during a mission and it will tell you at the bottom right if you have collected the file for that certain mission.

RORKE FILE MISSION LOCATION
1 Ghosts Stories Shortly after finishing the space area, you will eventually return back to earth. The road in front of you will suddenly break up and you will need to run. Head towards the second house to the right where the car is parked on the driveway and you will see the file on the ground in the first room.
2 Brave New World You will reach HQ after exiting the vehicle, where you will see it on the desk to your right as you enter the room on the top floor.
3 No Man's Land You will get to an area where you will need to walk past a small digger with the big yellow crane to your right. In front of you is a building where the file will be on the first table you see inside.
4 Struck Down This is found in the locker room just to your left as you enter the room that you need to breach in slow motion.
5 Homecoming At the start of the mission, walk through the large tent in front of you and to the far left until you reach a building. Before heading upstairs just turn left and the file will be there in front of you.
6 Legends Never Die During the mission, you will need to walk across a large metal crane to get from one building to another. Once inside you need to turn left and shoot the two enemies in front of the office desks. The file will be on top of one of the desks.
7 Federation Day During the mission, you will find yourself using a blow torch to enter the building via a window. Once inside just head left, then left into the first room and it's in the far corner.
8 Birds of Prey This is on the table next to Rorke but get the file straight away otherwise the story will continue and you will miss it.
9 The Hunted When you eventually meet up with your team mates again just head towards the water fountain just to the left where you will find the file on top of a rock.
10 Clockwork Once you get to the area with your night vision goggles, just continue forward and the file is on the table in the room in front of you. The entrance to that room is just to your left and you will need to turn back on yourself.
11 Atlas Falls In this mission, you will need to breach a room full of enemies that contains a snooker table. Walk through the door next to the snooker table and into the next room in front of you where the file will be in that room just to your right.
12 Into The Deep Once you have blown up the ship using your torpedo, you will need to continue to swim forward and you will swim past a small star fish to your left under some rubble. Once you exit you need to look to your right and you will find the file in the seaweed area.
13 End of The Line You will enter a room where you will see some large grey missiles above you. Walk down the stairs and just behind you to your left is the file. This is just before the on screen prompt comes up for you to get your camera out.
14 Sin City Whilst in the Casino in the shopping mall area where you just killed off tons of enemies, head down the escalators, past the slot machines, under the shutter and the file will be on a table to your left.
15 All or Nothing After you are given your fathers ghost mask, turn around and head to the beds to your left. Look for the section that has a metal door saying "No Exit". The file will be on the lower bunk behind the curtains.
16 Severed Ties Once you have set off the rocket a timer will start to count down. Turn around, go down the stairs, through the shut double doors, first right then first left and into the room. The file will be on top of the work station.
17 Loki After the explosion, you will be floating in the air freely. Once you see your team mates again, head through the circle in front of you, turn left towards the long vertical gold satellite part and the file will be just to the left of that.
18 Ghost Killer At the beginning of the mission just wait for Hesh to punch the tv that Rorke is on, turn around and the final file is on top of a workstation.

Once you have attacked all the last hive, you will need to activate the nuke bomb and you will have 4 minutes to sprint back. Whilst running back you will still need to fight off enemies such as the scorpions and rhinos and you will need to be fully equipped with cash to use your perks and I recommend setting up sentry guns along the route back to the start also. Reach the helicopter back at the start before the timer hits 1:30 and the trophy will unlock. If this is your first time escaping and completing extinction then the Made it Out Alive trophy will also unlock. The game requires a minimum of 3 players but with a maximum of 4 so if you escape with all four players then you will also unlock the No Man Left trophy.

Cabin Fever
Made it to the cabin.

Extinction Mode



Once you have destroyed the last hive in the City, just walk through to the next stage and towards the Cabin where the trophy will unlock. This is the hive between the two buildings at the rear of the map.

NOTE: See the Tips and Strategies section for more details.

[top]
City Dweller
Made it to the city.

Extinction Mode



Whilst playing extinction mode, a player will need to pick up the drill that's highlighted in blue and moving it to the area highlighted in orange. You will need to protect the drill by fighting off waves of enemies. To unlock this trophy, you will need to enter the city by successfully defeating the fifth hive that is blocking your path by the Gils Lodge Motel sign.

NOTE: See the Tips and Strategies section for more details.



[top]
Any Means necessary
Get 50 kills with the electric fence and fire traps in a single game.

Extinction Mode

To unlock this trophy, you will need personally need to kill 50 enemies using the electric fences or the fire traps which are spread out through the game. You will see the first electric fence at the beginning of the game just before Gil's Lodge Motel area. You will see a wire fence surrounding a hive with one fence panel on the floor. To the side of the fence panel on the floor, you will see a small generator and one other opposite which you will need to turn on using your game cash of $500. It will electrify the whole fence including you and your team mates so beware. I would recommend standing near the fence so that the enemies will come towards you and electrify themselves but may need to hop over the fence on the floor so that they follow you directly on to the fence.

The fire traps are large barrels and they cost $750-$1000 to use. They are quite useful as they create a large wall of fire and it will kill off any enemies next to it or any that try running through it. The first one is located just under the Gil's Lodge Motel sign but are also spread out through the game.

NOTE: The "Engineer" class allows you to upgrade your skills so that traps last longer and increase the damage they cause.

[top]
Trash Picker
Scavenge 40 items in a single game.

Extinction Mode

Whilst playing extinction mode, you will come across little boxes and trash bags that are highlighted in blue. You will need to pick up 40 of these throughout one single game by pressing when it appears on your screen as you stand next to the item. They will also help you out in the game as they contain weapon attachments, cash.....

Ideally you will want to boost this by asking the other players to back off the items and let you pick them up otherwise it will be very difficult. You won't unlock this trophy until near the end of the game in the Cabin area. If you are playing with another player you could also ask them to take possession of the drill and not to place it anywhere as this will prevent enemies respawning, which gives you a chance to walk around collecting these items. You can also do this in solo mode, that way you can collect them all but remember you will have to fight off the enemies alone also.

NOTE: The boxes/trash bags are usually in the same locations on each game but you will find a few that won't be but the item it contains will vary.

Scavenge Items
  • $50
  • $100
  • $200
  • $250
  • $500
  • Ammo
  • Ammo Clip
  • Stun Ammo
  • Incendiary Ammo
  • Explosive Ammo
  • Armor Piercing Ammo
  • Two Semtex grenades
  • Two Canister Bombs
  • Two Claymores
  • Two Bouncing Betties
  • One Hypno Knife
  • One Flare
  • One Trophy

Throttled Escape
Escape using a relic.

Extinction Mode

To unlock this trophy you will need to reach Rank 30 and prestige in extinction mode. This will then unlock a Relic slot and you will reset back to Rank 1. Relics make the game slightly harder for you to complete next time round and you can activate up to five relics at once. You can add and remove the Relics when you want in the load out screen.

Relic 1 - Take more damage from aliens
Relic 2 - Use pistols only
Relic 3 - Earn less cash and you will have a smaller wallet so you can only hold a limited amount of cash ($3000)
Relic 4 - No class selection available
Relic 5 - Inflict less damage on the aliens

I would recommend using the inflict less damage on the aliens relic as your sentry gun can do alot of damage and its manageable. You then need to redo the game and finish it using a relic. When your playing with others, note that only players with a relic activated will unlock the trophy within that game.

You will be able to see in the loadout screen the below relics to pick from. You will not be able to tell if the other players have a relic equipped other then the no class relic.


General Tips
  • Try and play with the maximum amount of players being four players so that you have more chance of getting revived when down
  • If your going for all trophies then I would only join a lobby with players above non-prestige Rank 22 at a minimum. Remember to look at their badge icon as once you prestige, you will reset back to Rank 1 but you keep all the unlocks
  • Get as many skill points as possible by attacking hives and completing as many challenges as you can but work as a team
  • I recommend upgrading your sentry gun to the maximum level as you get to use two sentry guns at once
  • Use a varied team with different skills/classes as each have their own use and upgrades as below:

Safeguard
Complete round 20 in safeguard.

Safeguard Mode

If you are a fan of Call of Duty then you may remember this in Modern Warfare 3 as survival mode. To access this mode you need to go to "Squads" via the main menu and then select "Safeguard". You can select from three different safeguard modes but for this trophy you need to reach at least wave 20 so just select the top option. I suggest playing with the maximum amount of players to increase your chances of getting to wave 20 which is 4 players.

Between each round, I suggest reloading your ammo and pick up any special drops and weapons. You need to work as a team and ideally stick together in one area of the map so that you can revive each other. If you are killed off by enemies, you will respawn on the next wave as long as least one of your team mates defeats all the enemies in that wave and you can still unlock the trophy.

General Tips
  • The first round is a bonus round where special loot will drop in the form of blue crates. I recommend that you try and obtain the sentry gun over any other item. You can hold up to several crates at any one time and you will also get a chance to obtain more loot in later levels. You special items are shown to the bottom right of your screen.
  • You will also get to obtain perks from green crates such as faster reloading, sprint etc. You can see your current perks to the bottom left of your screen. I would collect as many different ones as you can until you have them all and you won't lose them until you die. Green perks also contain weapons and I would stay away from sniper guns as you won't get much of a chance to use it.
  • Team work is a must and I recommend you stay together so that you can fight off the enemies together and revive each other quicker and easier.
  • Find areas on a map where you are in a corner or section where there is a wall/fence behind you so that you can concentrate on the enemies in front of you. If equipped, use your sentry guns to cover one direction such as your left side so that you pay more attention to your right. Working as a team will make this process easier and quicker to defeat the enemies.
  • Pick up any red glowing items such as the large circles with a star in the middle as this will give your team a boost such as armor, ammo etc.

You've earned it
Earn the mask. Finish the campaign on Veteran.

Veteran difficulty is the hardest difficulty in this game as the enemies are harder to defeat and you will get injured easier and quicker. You will need to complete all 18 missions on veteran difficulty via chapter select or by starting the game on that difficulty.

Veteran Tips:
space
  • Cover - Use as much cover as you can behind objects and wait for you health to regenerate before coming out of cover.
  • Riley - Use your dog as much as possible as he can kill enemies whilst your in cover or around the corner.
  • Snap Aim - Quickly press to aim down your sights as it will auto lock onto nearby enemies.
  • Weapons - Reload between enemies and make sure you swap your guns for more powerful one or ones with more ammo.
  • Advance - Sometimes you will need to keep moving forward to progress in the game as your story mode partners can only help you to a certain point.
