Call of Duty 3 Achievements

Assault Trooper

Complete a mission by firing only assault rifles. Melee attacks don't count.  

On the second mission of the game you can use the BAR for this achievement. Be precious with your ammunition as it is not plentiful. You can also use an enemies MP44. If you have problems with this, try it on Easy difficulty. Some have been saying that you cannot use grenades or melee attacks if you want to get this one.

I did melee some people but did not use grenades and still got it. So you can melee but I am not sure about melee.

melee attacks don't count means you can melee with any gun and it will not affect the achievement.

On the last level BAR ammo is fairly plentiful, and there are MP44s available towards the end of the level. This achievement is fairly easy on the final level.

This achievement is glitched, I tried it 6 times, only BAR, FG, and melee, no grenades.

it only works for the FG without sniper scope, shooting a FG with scope counts as a sniper rifle

I was able to do it on the second mission and used the BAR and the FG42. Just picked the right path when given the choice and was able to get the FG42 from the first set of nazis and was able to use the BAR until I ran out of ammo and then finished the mission with the FG42. DID NOT use any gernades. Worked perfectly

just do the second mission "the island" you get a BAR to start and you find alot of Fg42 ammo along the way, just dont use the the Scoped FG later on in the mission and youll get it!

Guide: go to 2nd mission and use the Bar and no scoped FG
You can get Fg no scoped in a box (hit to open)
Sorry for my bad english.

Why is everyone saying you can melee in the comments. It says you can in the description

I did this with the 3rd mission, using the Sven and the MP40. Why isn't the achievement popping up? I tried it again with the 4th one with the Thompson and the MP40. So which guns are classified as Assault Rifles?

I don't think the Sven is considered an assault rifle.

ive used the fg42 and the achievement wouldnt go through. right now im going through with just a BAR on the 2nd level. I also am not so sure you can melee because i did nothing but kill with a BAR and an fg42 on my first playthrough and meleed enemies occasionally, NEVER used grenades, and it still wouldnt go through. idk

This achievement can be done as long as the only weapon you fire is an Assault Rifle (meaning the BAR, FG42 non-scoped, MP44, or the Bren). All melee attacks and grenade use is fine. I got the "Hot Potato" achievement on the same level I used to get this achievement. (The level was "The Island" for those interested.

Just got this on Mission 2: The Island. I went through the level a couple of times switching between the BAR and the MP44, and the achievement wouldn't pop. This time, I ONLY used the BAR from start to finish, letting my squad do most of the work. I didn't use grenades, and only used my melee attack a couple of times. The cheevo popped in the middle of the end-level cut-scene.
