Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Call of Duty: Black Ops II Achievements

Back in Time

Use a future weapon in the past.

You must first complete the campaign. Then pick a past mission and select a weapon you used in the future. (Storm PSR, MSMC, etc). Past missions consist of Pyrrhic Victory, Old Wounds, Time And Fate, and Suffer With Me. You need to get a kill with it and it should unlock at the end of the mission.

Wonder how this will happen? Probably an easter egg/hidden weapon on some levels.

It better not involve time travel.

Since there is a achievement for making your own loadout for a mission, I'd assume after you beat a past mission, you can replay it with whatever weapons you want, including future ones.

A bit of advice from experience: I finished my Veteran run, and when I tried to start a New Campaign, I didn't have access to the future weapons anymore. So, I believe you do have to Replay Mission to be able to get the achievement.

WTF? Completed the game but no option to go back onto old missions or any access to my old gear, no challenges complete but yet I have the achievement, great. More broken games from Treyach...

when I replay a level in the past I don't have any future guns available? I have played a future mission. do I need to beat the campaign first?

Same problem as 10. Halfway through the missions. I can have past weapons in future missions, but no option for future weapons in past missions........

I was playing some missions again after I beat it on my Veteran run, thought I chose a future weapon. I guess I didn't. I'll have to wait until I finish my second run through on Recruit to get this now.

You do not have to run through the campaign multiple times... I beat the campaign on Regular, then Replayed Mission 1 with a future weapon (the special one from the Judgement Day mission)... the achievement popped up once I successfully saved Mason.

When I replayed the mission I just did it on Regular again... Mission 1 is kind of long, but it goes by pretty quick.... I noticed that when choosing a weapon, the "Future" weapons are to the far left of the selections, and "old" weapons are to the right...

After i completed the game i selected the 1st mission (Pyrrhic Victory) & selected the M8A1 assault rifle & the M1216 shotgun. When i finished the level it gave me the achievement.
