The Secrets Of Black Ops

blackops1.jpg

Got your copy of Call Of Duty: Black Ops? Of course you have. And given the amount of time you’re bound to sink into it over the next few months, you’ll want a nice high number or platinum trophy next to your gamertag so you’ve got something to show for it. The ‘complete the level’ achievements and trophies will come automatically, but what about the missable challenges that are only available on certain parts of certain levels? ShortList has the essential intel…

I Hate Monkeys

Worth: 15pts/Bronze trophy

Description: Kill seven monkeys in under 10 seconds in the Rebirth labs.

The type of achievement that will send the Daily Mail into a frothing ‘ban this sick game’ rage, because it’s a new stick to beat it with, rather than the same old ‘too violent’ argument. On mission 13 ‘Rebirth’ drop a couple of grenades in the corner then let rip with your shotgun.

 

Russian Bar-B-Q

Worth: 15pts/Bronze trophy

Description: Incinerate 10 enemies with the flamethrower attachment in the POW compound.

The key to getting this is ensuring you’ve actually got the flamethrower. Search the enemies you slaughter just before you enter the POW camp on the 12th mission ‘Payback’. One of them will have dropped an AK-47 with the attachment. Then it’s simply a case of lighting up.

 

No Leaks

Worth: 50 pts/Silver trophy

Description: Make it through the NOVA 6 gas without dying.

Halfway through ‘Project Nova’ (mission eight) you’re given a haz-mat suit. This basically removes your regenerating health – you get shot enough, you die. No hiding until you’re back at full strength. So keep your head down and try not to get shot. A quick switch to the Recruit difficulty is definitely recommended.

 

Double Whammy

Worth: 15 pts/Bronze trophy

Description: Destroy both helicopters with one TOW guided missile from the deck of the ship.

Located on the final mission, this involves accuracy and timing. Press fire at the exact moment the rocket is positioned between the two choppers and hope they’re close enough together.

 

Death To Dictators

Worth: 15pts/Bronze trophy

Description:  Take down Castro with a headshot

On the first mission you have to kill Castro. Just make sure you aim high and the achievement will pop.
