Ghost Stories
Escape. (Complete "Ghost Stories" on any difficulty.)

There are three separate segments in Ghost Stories that you need to complete before moving onto the next mission. Starting with running through the woods following Hesh into the house where the two of you will open up a set of double doors leading you into the next segment. Here you are in outer space where you encounter your first enemy followed by multiple enemies. Lastly you are back with Hesh running through the streets where you need to keep up with him to avoid death.

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

Once you begin your journey in Outer Space you must return to the ODIN Control by following SPC Mosley up into the hatch where the objective will be met. After passing the four space suits you come to an open area where Specialist Mosley is holding a hatch open for you to go through and help your team on the other side where a short cinematic will begin showing you the enemies killing off your team while you cannot do anything at the time.

Turn to your left and follow Mosley through the space station where he will be rammed by an enemy who loses his rifle forcing it to gravitate directly towards you. You will catch the rifle and when you do the enemy grabs onto you and in the midst of the struggle a text prompt will appear on the screen informing you to use the right stick to aim your weapon and to shoot, following the instructions and eliminate the enemy before he rips the rifle from your hands and shoots you. This will be the first enemy killed in the game without doing it you are unable to progress within the campaign.

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

From the beginning of the mission you will follow Hesh and Riley (German Shepard) through a small passage where he cuts a movie screen and you all will proceed to climb up through the theater until you have reached the concession stands where you will be met by some local wildlife. This will lead you into an open court yard where you will be met by other members of your team.

As this happens you will split up and group back up at a gas station further down the left side of the roadway. As you proceed you will see Riley attack an enemy followed by more enemies just behind the single combatant. Follow this path to the left and you will see he gas station in which enemies are holding some hostages outside on their knees. You can decide to take them out quickly or go silent down to the gas station and eliminate them. Eventually this leads to a pipe/tunnel that leads into a water reservoir loaded with enemies. Shortly after going underneath the bridge you will see a shack on both the left and right sides.

This leads you into an attack from a support helicopter dropping off troops and an attack helicopter, do your best to stay alive and destroy the helicopter before receiving an order to get in the back of the MATV. You will be driven to a FOB (Forward operating base) where you will walk up a set of stairs meeting up with Hesh and Elias where the mission will end.

The Liberty Wall is also earned during this mission so be sure to view it below for more details.

Liberty Wall
Take down both attack helicopters.

In the mission Brave New World after going through the pipe/tunnel next to the gas station you come to a water reservoir with plenty of enemies to kill. Once you reach the end with the two shacks, one on each side there is a guided missile weapon system known as Maaws. Pick this up and turn around facing the bridge you just went under. You will see a support helicopter flying just above the bridge shoot off your missile while staying locked on and it will destroy within a couple missiles.

After taking out the first helicopter reload your weapon immediately. The second helicopter is an attack helicopter that will obliterate you if you stay out in the open so be careful. The attack helicopter will fly over and return to the right side if you are looking at the bridge (American flag side). Once it is overhead repeat the missile shooting until it has been destroyed as well.

The amount of missiles needed is different depending on the difficulty in which you are playing on. Obviously Recruit difficulty would need the least and Veteran needs the most.

The second segment is partially difficult just because enemies randomly go in and out of water or Rorke kills them so you need to be quick. This is right after Merrick comes in through the communication radio followed up by you and Rorke jumping down to be shot at. Stay under water and go for two kills so if you don't you can always hit the options button and start from last checkpoint to re-do the section.

Lastly is after you and team cross another makeshift bridge going over into the carport. You should be able to achieve 4 underwater kills here from two in the front and two in the back but this is a long time to be under water so you will need to be popping up for air before dying.

No Man Left
Escape with all four players.

Please refer to Sprinter above for more details.

Reach the exfil chopper with 1 minute and 30 seconds or more remaining on the clock.

In order to have he opportunity to reach the exfil you must reach the cabin area and destroy all the hives before having to go to a specified marker starting the clock which is set to 4 minutes so you have that amount of time to reach the helicopter back at the beginning however to earn the trophy you must make it into the blinking circle with 1:30 minutes remaining to earn the Sprinter .

Keep your money on you as you will need it to purchase perks along the way as you come in contact with plenty of enemies on your way back including rhinos. If you use money on your Feral Instincts perk it will allow you to run faster and see where the enemies are. This comes in handy to keep running without having to slow down.

If you are doing this with four people you all should place some turrets around the area that will attack the enemies that way you will be earning money as you continue in addition to have a somewhat safe route with less to deal with before any of you activate the countdown.

All but 1 extinction trophy can be earned while playing solo and the one that you must play online for is No Man Left as you will need to have 4 people playing at once and locally you can only get 2 players going at once.

Made it Out Alive
Escape 1st time.

Please refer to Sprinter above for more details.

Complete all challenges and escape.

Each game of Extinction will have 12 challenges, 1 for each drill that is placed down. From the moment you or your teammates put the drill down a new challenge will appear and you will have until the hive has been destroyed to complete the challenge. Every game is random with the challenges and the order in which they can be given so be aware of what you need to do and the locations of where certain weapons are.

If you decide to play solo it does decrease the amount of enemies that need to be killed before the hive is destroyed. If you decide to play with a team try using headsets as it will help out tremendously if someone gets in trouble or needs some ammo, armor, or any other perk.

If one challenge goes without completion you will fail to meet the requirements.

Some of the various challenges are:

Use only melee attacks to damage the aliens. (First Hive only) Keep shot accuracy at 50% or higher until the hive is destroyed.
Don't take any damage from the aliens. (First Hive only) Keep shot accuracy at 75% or higher until the hive is destroyed.
Don't bleed out until the hive is destroyed. (Co-op only) Don't go into final stand until the hive is destroyed.
Protect a random player from going into final stand. (Co-op only) Kill 10 aliens using Traps.
Kill 10 aliens using Turrets. Kill 10 aliens using Propane Tanks.
Kill 25 aliens while prone. Kill 25 aliens using Pistols before the hive is destroyed.
Kill 25 aliens using SMGs before the hive is destroyed. Kill 25 aliens using Shotguns before the hive is destroyed. (15 aliens on Solo)
Kill 25 aliens using Sniper Rifles before the hive is destroyed. (15 aliens on Solo) Kill 5 Scouts with melee damage before the hive is destroyed.
Kill 25 aliens using LMGs before the hive is destroyed. (15 aliens on Solo) Kill 5 aliens while they are in the air before the hive is destroyed. (3 aliens on Solo)
Find and kill the Leper in 30 seconds. Kill a Scorpion with melee damage before the hive is destroyed.
Don't reload for 90 seconds. Don't spend any money for 2 minutes.
Don't use any abilities for 90 seconds. Do not take any damage from exploding Seeker aliens until the hive is destroyed.
Spend $10,000 before the hive is destroyed. ($6,000 on Solo) Spend $15,000 before the hive is destroyed. (Last Hive only)
Spend $20,000 before the hive is destroyed. (Last Hive only) Keep the drill health at 50 or higher until the hive is destroyed.

Cabin Fever
Made it to the cabin.

You will need to have reached the city in order to get to the cabin as it is the third and final section needed to complete the game mode. You will have to use the drill to destroy the 4 hives in the city before destroying the fifth and final barrier before moving into the cabin area. Once you do complete the city and move into the cabin area be ready to go up against a Rhino or two.

City Dweller
Made it to the city.

At the start of the Extinction you are given a drill to place down and destroy a hive, the drill can be damaged so you will need to fend off any enemies attacking the drill. You will have to destroy four hives before reaching the firth and final barrier. Once destroyed you will have earned this trophy. The city is the 2nd section of Extinction so you still have a ways to go before completing it.

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

In each area of Extinction there are two types of traps, electric fences and fire traps that are used sparingly compared to the electric traps. The electric fence cost $500 while the fire trap cost $750-1000 considering where you are located. The electric fences run electricity through fences through a certain area and the fire barrels explode across a plain so any enemy that goes through the fire will have immediately catch on fire.

It's best to choose the engineer class since their is an ability to make the traps last longer and cause more damage. This can be done in the first area you come to without having to pass the first barrier leading into the city. There is an electric fence that you can lead the enemies to over and over again without even having to drill after the first hive since they will respawn and come after you, however this method will take much longer and you will need to melee the enemies to make additional money making it harder.

Trash Picker
Scavenge 40 items in a single game.

Items that can be scavenged are boxes and bags that are highlighted in blue. Once scavenged they will not be available anymore and every new game they are placed within the random locations.

This is easier done solo unless you're boosting so you can tell/ask your boosting partners not to scavenge any of the items. It would be best if you wait until you got to the cabin area before going around looking for the item so you will not be attacked by anymore enemies. If you place the drill down enemies will come and if you choose to carry it around no enemies will spawn so keep that in mind. Once all 40 items have been obtained the trophy will pop so you do not need to complete the game for this trophy.

Scavenged items consist of:

Ammo Clip
Stun Ammo
Incendiary Ammo
Explosive Ammo
Two Semtex grenades
Armor Piercing Ammo
Two Canister Bombs
One Hypno Knife
Two Claymores
One Flare
Two Bouncing Betties
One Trophy
Muzzle Brake
Red Dot Sight
ACOG Scope
Rapid Fire
Thermal Hybrid Scope
Burst Fire

Throttled Escape
Escape using a relic.

You will not be able to use a relic until you prestige which is rank 30 then you automatically get sent back to rank 1 keeping your gear that you unlocked along the way. Next time you enter a game of Extinction you are able to apply one of the 5 relics. These relics can be added or removed from the loadout screen and the purpose of them is to make the game harder to complete.

The five relics are:
  • Relic 1 - Take more damage from aliens

  • Relic 2 - Pistols only

  • Relic 3 - Limited wallet/Max 3000K

  • Relic 4 - No class selection available

  • Relic 5 - Inflict less damage on the aliens
Each one has its downs but the limited wallet seemed to be the easiest to earn the trophy with and you spend a lot of money in any situation and it's a good idea to try and get this done while playing with three other players.

You will need to have a relic equipped from the beginning to completion in order to earn this trophy.

Complete round 20 in safeguard.

To enter a game of Safeguard you need to enter "Squads" from the Main Menu then choose how you would like to play whether it be online, local, or multiplayer followed by the Safeguard game mode.

Safeguard can be played with up to 4 players vs. AI. There two game modes in which you can play (safeguard & safeguard infinite) but in either one your are required to complete round 20 which regular safeguard ends afterward and infinite mode does not. You can also join a game that is later in the rounds and still earn the trophy if you get lucky enough. Playing with 3 other players is your best bet as it will increase your chances in completing round 20.

The objective is to kill off the waves of enemies each round with special drops and weapons in between the rounds to help increase the likelihood of you staying alive. Pick up and use perks that come and glowing items as they will boost armor, reload ammo, shield, etc. You will want to find an area of the map that provides a lot of cover so you will not be shot in the open and have a great chance to see the opposition coming towards you.

Also go out and pick up loot at the end of each round, however if you are playing in a multiplayer game be sure to leave some good equipment behind for those that need it.

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

Veteran difficulty is already unlocked so you will not need to playthrough the campaign multiple times thus saving you a lot of time if you do it from the beginning, however if you are not comfortable come back to this difficulty when you are ready.

Playing on Veteran difficulty is much easier than the previous game in the franchise, however if you have not played those you will not have much to worry about as there are only a few spots that may provide enough frustration for rage.

Some tips that may help you are:
  • Switch your pistol out as soon as possible by killing an enemy and picking up there weapon while having your pistol equipped or by picking up one at an ammo crate.
  • Switching weapons instead of reloading actually helps and provides quickness when in battle.
  • When you have control of Riley definitely use him to your advantage by having him attack frequently.
  • Be sure to always find and use cover not concealment to protect you from being shot and taking damage which ultimately in the end kills you quickly.
  • Sitting back after taking damage will regenerate your health so when in cover you can pop up and down as long as your health is regenerated.
  • Advance ahead as soon you can to better your position and get extra help from your teammates.
  • Quick aim, this can be done by using . When you see an enemy hold it and the crosshairs will be directed over them granted you have your weapon pointed in the right direction. This is great for groups of enemies since it conserves spraying the ammo and ensures you are actually hitting a target.
**This can be done via mission select if you have completed the campaign already on a lower difficulty.**
