Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Achievements

Dead or Alive

Jailor or executioner.

Mission: Judgement Day

You will have a choice to kill someone or capture them. Either one unlocks the achievement, but if you take too long to make a decision, you won't unlock it.

Note: If you take too long to decide whether to shoot him or capture him (you only have a couple of seconds), the game takes over and makes the choice for you. If this happens, you will not unlock the achievement. You yourself have to press  or .

Didn't for me either. I guess you have to kill him maybe?

I sent him to jail and got the achievement so you are able to do either.

I got the achievement when the credits started to roll after I shot him. After all it's more fun 2 kill people then it is putting them in jail :)

I captured him, I think you need to do it as soon as you have the choice.

As soon as I got the choice, I shot him (after what he had me do to Mason Sr. I didn't have a choice) and i got the achievement but am planning to do it again on a second account and was wondering if it mattered what I did but it doesn't look like the answer is very certain on here. Whatever I'll just kill him. Screw 'em YOLO.

I shot him because a) I was pissed at him for making me kill Alex Mason. B) Karma died in my first playthrough because I tried to shoot menendez in Achilles veil and getting to china to come to your rescue is very specific and takes a while c) I didn't want woods to die. D) why would I let him live after all the shit he tried to pull

There are a few choices throughout the game where you can kill or capture. I spared everyone and got it so maybe??
