Fog - an eerie campsite on the shore of a lake shrouded in fog. This map contains the "Michael Myers" special Field Order reward. This map pays homage to many horror films.

BayView - this map is set in California. The distinctive feature of this map is the trolley. It runs on a track that outlines the southern half of the map.

Containment - takes place in a war-torn town in Mexico. At the center of the map is a radioactive missile. Complete a Field Order to call in a mortar strike which will cause the missile to blow up.

Ignition - a remake of the fan-favorite MW2 map "Scrapyard."

Episode 1: Nightfall - takes place in an abandoned military base in Alaska. This map introduces two new cryptids: the agile, teleporting Phantom and the large, spider-like Breeder that serves as the boss of this map. "Nightfall" takes place after the events of "Point of Contact" and is more difficult.

[top]Tips & Strategies

Most of your time spent playing through this DLC will be in Extinction mode. These trophies can be acquired offline or by yourself, but playing with a full team that communicates will make the process much easier. Look through and post in our Boosting Threads if you are looking for other players to help you.

Hypno Knives, when thrown at an enemy, will turn them friendly and they will help you in battle. You can find Hypno Knives in search boxes. Unless you are going for "Phantom Exterminator" , Phantoms make great allies. They are extremely strong and they can last for up to two hives. Hit one with a Hypno Knife to get it on your side.


This DLC's trophies can be tackled in any order you choose, but below is the quickest way to finish this DLC.

Get online and play through each new Multiplayer map. There is an alien hive in each new map that you need to shoot in order to complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge. Once you have completed the challenge, jump into Extinction mode and start the new map "Nightfall." All you have to do is destroy the first hive and the first trophy will unlock.

Egg-stra XP!

Continue playing this session and move on to Step 2.

You must get through all three areas and defeat the Breeder to beat "Nightfall." Collect all intel while you play through the map. Before entering the third area, equip your pistol and take down the rhino that will come charging through the wall. It is very likely you will kill 5 Phantoms and unlock this trophy in addition to the 3 story-related trophies. Pick up the Venom-X and kill 50 cryptids with it during the final encounter with the Breeder. You are also going to want to attempt to complete every challenge from this step onward.

Start a new session of "Nightfall" and complete the final fight with the Breeder in under 5 minutes. This will be easiest with a coordinated group of 4 players. Make sure each player has a Venom-X.

Speed Slayer

Start a new session of "Nightfall" with a Relic active and kill the Breeder.

The only trophy you should have left to earn is the completionist trophy. You should also go for any other trophies you may be missing.

Nightfall Completionist


Pushing Ahead
Gain access to the Compound area in Nightfall.

You will come face-to-face with the Breeder for the first time after you destroy the first few alien hives. She will remain stationary and attack you with a few different projectiles. One of these projectiles is a red egg that will hatch a few seconds after landing on the ground. Kill them before they hatch.

The Breeder's weak point is her head so you are going to want to shoot it with an assault rifle or LMG. There is also a mounted turret directly in front of the Breeder and you should use it to quickly kill her. You will unlock this trophy once you defeat the Breeder and it retreats.

Weapon Facility
Gain access to the Facility in Nightfall.

After your first encounter with the Breeder, you will enter the Compound area of "Nightfall." Take a look around and then start destroying the hives. After you have destroyed all the hives in this area, the Breeder will make another appearance. You will not have to fight her here though, she will soon go away and the path to the Facility will be clear. Enter the Facility to unlock the trophy.

Survived Nightfall
Kill the Breeder for the first time in Nightfall.

Refer to "Speed Slayer" for tips on how to defeat the Breeder.

Speed Slayer
Kill the Breeder in less than 5 minutes in Nightfall.

Whether you're playing with 3 friends or by yourself, killing the Breeder in under 5 minutes is very doable if everyone on your team is on the same page.
  • Use your Venom-X to deal damage to the Breeder so that she will collapse and expose her vulnerable area. Then unload onto that area until she stands back up.
  • The Breeder will retreat after downing her twice. Kill any cryptids running around and take care of the Rhino. The Breeder will return after everything is dead.
  • Keep an eye out for the regenerative plants that sprout in the corners of the room. These will heal the Breeder so you need to shoot and take out these plants ASAP.
  • Keep your teammates and yourself fully buffed with ammo and armor. Use your equipment to help with the cryptids.
  • The timer will start the moment the Breeder's health bar appears on your screen so run into the room and don't waste any time. The timer will end once the Breeder's health bar is totally depleted.
If you plan on doing this solo then I suggest you play as the Weapon Specialist. The increased bullet damage will be incredibly useful to you. If you are playing with friends then try to go in with a balanced team.

Turnabout is Fair Play
Kill 50 Cryptids with the Venom-X weapon in Nightfall.

The Venom-X is the new superweapon introduced in "Nightfall." In the Weapons Facility there is a hive that is blocking the door to a room. If you look through the glass you can see the Venom-X sitting on the counter. You need to destroy this hive in order to acquire the Venom-X. This weapon has its own weapon slot so you will not have to discard any weapons to use it. It also does not cost anything - it's free. It is an extremely powerful weapon but its downside is that it has a very small magazine and pathetic ammo capacity. The Venom-X does not fire traditional ammunition - instead it uses venom sacs from dead cryptids. Occasionally cryptids will drop them so pick them up if you are out of ammo.

You need to kill 50 cryptids with this weapon in order to unlock this trophy. Start killing the smaller cryptids the moment you acquire the Venom-X. There is no definitive answer as to whether this trophy needs to be done in one game or not, but try to get it done in one game anyway. If you have not yet received this trophy by the time you reach the Breeder, just focus on killing the cryptids with the Venom-X and ignore the Breeder until you get this trophy.

Nightfall Completionist
Complete all challenges and kill the Breeder in Nightfall.

No doubt the hardest trophy to earn in this DLC. A challenge is presented to you each time you begin to destroy a hive in Extinction. You will earn a skill point for each challenge you complete before the hive is destroyed. In order to unlock this trophy, you will need to complete every challenge that you come across and then go on to defeat the Breeder. It will take a coordinated group of players to complete all challenges and if that's not possible then you may want to try going for this trophy solo. If you played the default Extinction map at all then you will be very familiar with challenges and how to complete them. The challenges in this DLC are mostly the same.

There are two unique challenges exclusive to this DLC that you should be aware of. During your first fight with the Breeder, you will be given a challenge. This challenge can be 1 of 2: "Defeat the Breeder in 90 seconds or less" or "Destroy 10 Breeder Eggs before they hatch."

The first challenge calls for an all-out attack on the Breeder. Shoot her in the head with everything you have and use the mounted turret in front of her. If everyone focuses on the Breeder, you can finish the fight in less than 30 seconds.

The second challenge will be slower. You have to wait until the Breeder starts to throw her red eggs around the map. She will only throw a few eggs out at a time. Once they hit the ground, you only have a few seconds to shoot and destroy them before they hatch. Destroy 10 eggs and then you can shift your attention to the Breeder.

Throttled Survival
Kill the Breeder while using a Relic in Nightfall.

In order to equip Relics, you will need to prestige at least once in Extinction Mode. You will gain an additional Relic slot every time you prestige, but this trophy only requires you to have one Relic active. You can choose which Relic you want to equip in the Loadout Menu, before a game begins. It does not matter which Relic you choose to use but there are a few that stand out, and as long as you are playing with other characters it won't impact your gameplay too much.

Do Less Damage - You will only do about 2/3 of the damage you would normally do. This Relic is probably the best one to use if you are playing with a group because your teammates will more than make up for your decreased damage output.

Smaller Wallet - You can only carry half the amount of money that you normally would, and you earn 25% less cash from all sources.

Mortal - You have no class and none of the bonuses that come with classes. You're just a regular dude. Again, having other players around will make having this relic just a small inconvenience.

Phantom Exterminator
Kill 5 Phantoms in one game.

The Phantom is a new type of cryptid introduced in the Extinction map "Nightfall." Their body size and shape is similar to that of the Hunter. Their most defining physical characteristic is their blue mouth and the blue highlights on their sides and back. The Phantom's special ability is teleportation - they will emit a black cloud and turn invisible, then reappear somewhere else.

The Phantom will begin to appear after you've destroyed a few hives. They do above-normal damage and they have a lot of health so you will quickly find Phantoms to be a frustrating enemy to deal with.

In order to earn this trophy, you need to kill five Phantoms in a game. This should come naturally while you play through "Nightfall." Focus on the Phantom whenever it appears. You can throw a flare at it to prevent it from teleporting for a few seconds.

Pea Shooter
Kill a Rhino with only a pistol in Nightfall.

This trophy's description states that you have to kill a Rhino with only a pistol. To clarify, you can only damage the Rhino with a pistol. Using anything else (other weapon classes, grenades, equipment, etc.) will disable the trophy for that particular Rhino. Keep in mind that only the player that delivers the killing blow will earn the trophy so let your let your group know about it beforehand.

A Rhino will appear as soon as you enter the facility. Make sure you or your teammates have no traps or sentries activated before you walk through the door and spawn the Rhino. It will most likely be alone so this is a prime opportunity to unlock this trophy.

Undiscovered Truths
Find all the intel hidden in Nightfall.

The hidden intel in "Nightfall" can be put into three categories: Cutscenes, Encrypted Intel, and Classified Intel.

Cutscenes - All you have to do is complete "Nightfall" to unlock all cutscenes.

Classified Intel - These are randomly found in search boxes. Look all around the level for these search boxes and press to open them. If an intel was inside, it will now be on the ground. Press to pick it up. The intel looks like a smartphone. If you are playing with other players, only the player that picks up the intel will get credit for picking it up.

Encrypted Intel - They look like laptops and are found in specific places. There are 5 encrypted intel: 2 can be found in the Compound, 2 can be found in the Weapons Facility, and the final intel is located in the final area where you fight the Breeder.

Egg-stra XP!
Complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge and then destroy a hive in the Onslaught DLC package.

Each new multiplayer map in this DLC contains a hidden alien hive. You need to find and shoot all four of these hives to complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge. This challenge must be completed in public matches. A prompt will appear at the top-left of your screen the moment you shoot each hive. After you have shot all four hives, enter Extinction Mode and destroy one hive. You do not have to be the one to plant the drill - you just have to be present for the hive's destruction.

Ignition - Head towards the middle of the map and go into the underground container. The hive will be on the wall, hard to miss.

Fog - Head down into the tunnel and go to the waterfall. Look down into the pit and you will see the hive.

BayView - Walk to the southeast corner of the map and look through the railing. The hive is attached to the bottom of the pier in the distance. You may need a precision weapon to hit it.

Containment - Head to the red-striped building in the northwest corner of the map. Stand on the nearby dumpster then turn around. To the left of the "Transmission" written on the wall will be the hive, on top of the white building.

This trophy will unlock once you have shot all four alien hives in Multiplayer Mode and destroyed one hive in Extinction Mode.
