IMO this was the hardest mission on Veteran.

The beginning is very hard because you get your first checkpoint very late if you are going through this bunker.
I made the first part by going straight ahead through the trench - not the right way to the bunker. When you reach the end of this trench throw your smoke granades and run like hell to your current mission target.

The main thing of the second part are the houses. I made it by throwing two smoke granades right before the first house. Then run to that house an hide in the bushes between the windows and the entrance. A few mates will follow you. Now throw granades through the windows and the entrance. Shoot a few times and take cover - you will get a checkpoint when the last enemy in the house will be killed. From that point along

it should not be as difficult. Snipe the enemies at the opposite houses when you are standing at the first floor of that house. Then run to the next house and clean it from enemies. After you cleaned all houses the hardest part starts.

The final thing is a very hard sniping-action on top of the silo. You have to shoot mortargroups. Take your time to learn in wich order they have to be killed. For me that was the hardest part of the whole game. There are a few mortargroups you have to take out with one shot to have enought time to shoot the next. When you have done this level the rest of the game should not be a problem.

Good Luck!

I hope this will help.

Ugh, this mission is giving me grief.. Especially after clearing out the bunker on the right side and mounting the stationed gun an ally happens to run in front of it as i shoot... Friendly fire will not be tolerated. Am i the only one who thinks as the story progresses the allies get dumber and the enemies tougher? Like the Germans suddenly being able to sidestep my shots while the ally who is supposed to be watching my back just stands there while i get shot to bits..

DissObey, I'm with you on that. I've had allies let enemies come into the houses and shoot me while I'm sniping. Many times they take my bullets by jumping in front of me when I open fire. Then the enemy sidestep, I need to learn that trick. Also I have had an enemy, after a head shot with my sniper rifle, get back up and open up on me with his mg. I have spent way too much time getting nowhere on this mission.

Aw I love when levels take away all skill and throw in a hefty dose of playing until you get lucky.

i wish the person that designed this game would die very slowly and painfully had to play the third part of this achievement twice because at on check point at the end i would spawn n die from a mortar within 2 seconds

I just decided to go for all these vet achievements and after reading all your comments i'm not looking forward to it. I'll save this one for last. @4 I totally agree with you the a.i. really does get dumber

just got it, it really isn't that hard it's getting that first check point thats a bitch. try to go as far left as possible towards the end of the trench. use all smoke grenades and wait about 12 seconds, then run straight for the furthest bunker. make sure you take out the guy in and stand in the furthest corner. you'll get. took me about 30 tries :). good luck

When going through the A B C etc. buildings, try different approaches, different orders. Going anti-clockwise worked for me.

Just got this after a month of trying it off and on again. The first part sucks, it's all about luck. The second part is pretty easy. The third part sucked. Houses B and F gave me a lot of trouble, but I just kept trying different approaches until I got it. Sniping the mortars was easy cake I must say. I had barely any trouble with it, I died once shooting the mortars. I can't believe people thought that was the hardest part of the game, but I guess everyone has different strenghs and weaknesses. Now I gotta do the last two missions. Are they hard? I guess I'll find out.

The first checkpoint in D-Day was a pain. But after 20 trys I did it. Go to far left in tunnels. Watched a youtube video to help with some questions.

"The Silo" is hands down the hardest part

Comment #26 by Deadsea 18
Friday, April 12, 2013 @ 08:56:05 PM

@19 Silo was that bad you had to escape and Germans were coming at all sides. I died so many times and finally got lucky and got past that part after that everything was all good. Plus the Morter part was BS. I hate how in the game you could do something and get no checkpoint then you die and somehow after doin the same thing you get a checkpoint I hate this game thats one of the things about it.

Hardest mission ive come across in the game yet was ''The Tiger'' on ''The Battle of Cain'' last British mission which is the mission after D DAY. Man did it make The SIlo look like a cakewalk. Ugggh died like 100 times trying to get to the German HQ. I would get killed cause I thought my AI was watching my back but they wait to kill the guy after Im aleady dead. :0

I hope after ''The Cain''

mission that ''Hill 400'' and the final mission are short. I hate this game and hopefully I get my 1000 in the game and then I can destry this game slowly. Activion and IW can kiss my ass. This game sucks. Started great then got repeative and boring fast.

The first mission coming up from the beach I didn't find too bad,went up the left hand side then threw a couple of smoke grenades at the machine gun nest and the bunker and ran like a mad man into the bunker.The hardest part was capturing the buildings,struggled with B,D,F.The sniping on top of the silo wasn't too bad either,just kept on checking the map and sniped away.The Russian missions for me were harder.

I didn't find this one that hard generally. The beginning mission take your time going through the first bunker. Throw down a smoke to get into the trenchers after and you'll get the checkpoint finally. The last mission was a bit more annoying because of the lack of checkpoints but once you get through a few houses it's smooth sailing.

This one sucked. I still have yet to get pass it. I got all the way to the last part of the last mission in the chapter... And then they give me this checkpoint that kills me right when I respawn. I found no way around it and after an hour of trying I was forced to restart the WHOLE MISSION! 3 hours of rage for nothing ._.

Man, those nazis shouting at me is burned into brain. "SUNNY TAY-TA!!!"

I agree def the hardest mission in the game. If you get stuck at a checkpoint, try something else. Go a different route. See what works. Inch by inch you'll make it!

I've beaten this whole game and WAW on veteran, and for me this is probably the hardest mission IMO.

Good morning guys. Not if there are still people who play this game. I am playing in veterans.
See if anybody can help me in the mortars on the Silo, I am stuck here because the order in which I must remove them or if there is a trick to be able to spend it.
I appreciate it very much
