Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

Double Trouble

Use only dual wield weapons to escape Kowloon.  

This is easiest to do on Recruit difficulty and happens during the mission "Numbers", where you will meet Dr. Clarke and be ambushed by enemies. You must play this entire mission using only dual wield weapons. You cannot pick up or fire other weapons. You will start the mission with the "CZ75 Dual Wield" pistols. Once you have jumped the rooftop, they will move a fridge from the side of a wall to open a weapon stash. Inside in the middle of the wall you will find the "Kiparis Dual Wield" Sub Machine Guns. Many of the enemies have Kiparis so finding ammo while shooting them down should not be an issue, but keep your "CZ75 Dual Wield" pistols on hand. Pressing  will fire the weapon in your left hand, and pressing  will fire the weapon in your right hand. If you press , both weapons will be reloaded at the same time. During the mission, it is okay to melee/knife with  or to kill enemies by throwing a grenade with .

i definitely suggest you do this one on recruit or it'll be damn near impossible. the picture is misleading in that you can you use any dual wield weapon, don't worry about accidentally stabbing someone either. once you slide down a slanted roof & crash through an awning you'll get the notice.

In the mission 'Numbers', the dual wield weapons will be your default weapons. Later in the level you can change to a different pair of dual wielded weapons. I'd suggest doing this on Recruit considering Veteran is very difficult with all the dudes being so far away.

I finally completed this on hardened. It was a real pain but do able if you keep moving forward and switch to dual SMG's.

Very odd. I'm POSITIVE I did this on veteran using only the pistols that you start out with. Didn't change weapons at all, and it didn't pop when I finished. And I know I didn't knife anyone, either.

I tried this on Veteran and got to the part where there are snipers and I gave
up and went back to the weapons room and grabbed the sniper rifle. You will
know you got the achievement right when you slide down to the street level
and land in those stupid crates you get stuck in when forced to pistol your
way out of it.

Did this one on first play through on veteran (stupid idea)I got caught on a big sequence of fights that I couldn't get through and put my controller down. Next day I get past on first try and rest was cake walk. If you do this on veteran on your "single play through" take your sweet time. If not just blaze through on recruit in about 5 min.

With your dual wield, watch your ammo because the dual machine guns need to
reload quite often which made me pretty mad.

didn't face any troubles getting it on veteran. it took no more than 15 mins. just let your partners to go forward, when possible, and they will do almost all job.
if partners aren't with you, then use grenades. firing at long distance is not so hard too, just be patient and shoot single bullets.

Dual SMGs on Hardened for me. I'd recommend changing to SMGs when you first make the jump and find the cache behind the fridge; as the enemies are all using them the ammo stocks itself up. Knives are fine and I got away with letting loose a few grenades as well.

One other thing, is that you CAN accidently switch to a solo weapon and still get the achievement, AS LONG as you don't fire it. I know this is true because I grabbed one of the assault rifles on the first weapon select part and I still got it at the end no problem.

Not too bad, even on Veteran. Just take cover a lot and aim for the head.

Haha, I did this on recruit, I used my knife more than the dual weapons. I even
could knife all the guys in the slow-mo sections.

i thought itd be cool to try this on the hardest difficulty but i dont think the enemys thought the same thing

Actually this wasn't that hard on veteran...and I'm not trying to sound like some FPS snob. When you get the dual automatic SMG's only fire one at a time so you always have one ready to shoot. Also try and run through certain areas to new checkpoints cause you don't have to shoot everybody.

You don't have to worry about knifing of throwing grenades just use the gun you start out with. I'm not sure about using dual SMG's (haven't tried yet) I just beat the level on regular using the default dual wield pistols

This achievement is really fun to do, as in Kowloon you need precision, but
dual wield makes everything mayhem!
Easy 10G

Very easy. Just use dual wielded CZ75'S until you get to the weaponary wall, pick up dual wielded PM63'S or something standard achievement, easy.
Ps. My gamerscore hasnt updated on here its actually 4325:)

This was a fun achievment. I did it on normal. It was fun running around with dual pistols and uzis. Snipers can be annoying but on low difficulties just leg it past them and you'll survive unless you've left a mass of enemies alive. I didn't bother with nades or the knife but people seem to say it's ok. If in doubt dont use them. It's easy enough without them because you can do it on easy.

Pops once you hit the streets after Clarke's death, you'll know it when you fall on to a bunch of crates and boxes and have to hold 'X' to regain one of your pistols for a quick defense shootout right before the white van slams into the building.
