Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

Lord Nelson

Destroy all targets and structures while making your way up the river.  

This is easiest to do on Recruit difficulty. During the mission "Crash Site", you will be put into a boat with rocket launchers and a machine gun on it. Press  to fire the rockets and  to use the machine gun,  is used to aim the reticule found on your screen. Here are some tips to ensure you don't miss a house:

  • Destroy enemies first. They will be a big nuisance and can slow you down.
  • Make sure to look at both sides of the river and the multiple levels. There may be a house a little farther up that you may not see normally and should shoot at. There may be houses around the inside of a corner that you may miss.
  • Take your time when looking through an area. Double check that you have blown up every house in the area you just passed up.
  • If you do get destroyed and put back to a checkpoint, make sure to check the area even more so that you don't miss any houses.
  • Some houses take more rockets to destroy the others, so keep hitting the house until it is destroyed.
  • The final area where you should unlock the achievement is when the attack boat starts shooting at you with missiles and using its machine gun. After you destroy the final house in this area, the achievement will unlock. If it doesn't, you will need to restart the level to ensure you get everything.

Confirmed, this is on the Mission Crash Site
you must destroy all targets and all of the wooden houses at the side of the river

This is true. But awkward trying to figure out which sheds will actually blow up, while you're being shot at.

be carefull at the end, i just went through it all taking care to destroy everything but at the end when the big boat comes i just blasted it then it went to cutscreen before i could blow up the last few huts!!!!!!really don't want to have to go through that again.

Just take your time and light up the shoreline with rockets and machine gun fire. I raced around the hut at the end and lit up the shoreline in a circular pattern taking out the PT boat and it popped.

Still can't get this, do you need to do every building? Some don't seem to blow up

Comment #10 by Strik3r 333
Monday, November 15, 2010 @ 01:58:44 PM

for the ones that dont fully blow up u need to machine gun them, it will take about 2 full bursts with one overheat before those huts go down, just be sure to rocket them first

It will pop after you destroy the boat at the end of the level, if you have got all the buildings of course :)

Do this on recruit and take your time to destroy each and every building. Keep an eye out for RPGs on the shore. If you don't get the achievement at the end, but are certain you got all the buildings you saw, do it again but just worry about the hidden ones since it adds it up if you mss a house on one attempt but get it another time. You should get it in two or three run throughs.

If anyone is still struggling with this one like I was - I found it useful turning back on myself every now and then. There was usually a dark hut I missed hidden by a hill when going forwards.

Crash site mission... Just go slow and take your time. It helps if you backtrack before you get to the last section because some buildings are much easier to see the opposite direction.. And at the last section don't destroy the boat until you destroy all the buildings there. You get achievement after boat is destroyed

Monday, January 03, 2011 @ 03:03:13 PM

i dont think the huts at the last big boat matter, i got the achievement and i didnt destroy a couple of the huts that were at the last boats section so im pretty sure so long as you destroy everything up to the last boat you should be good to go

at the end of the level, before you blow up the bad guy boat, make sure you look behind
you while in the "bay area" of the last boat. if you look at that portion as a round clock, 12 being the shore the last houses are at 5 oclock

Comment #28 by SpKXmasSpirit
Saturday, February 05, 2011 @ 08:08:09 AM

what a terrible achievement.. how are you supposed to be able to take the time to explore an area against RPGs on an endless spawn? the fact that you can't clear an area and have time to breath is a contradiction of what you are supposed to do.

Comment #32 by Gumy
Wednesday, February 09, 2011 @ 09:25:03 AM

I got this while playing on veteran and I wasn't going for it. I missed a lot of huts and still got it. Perhaps dying once from 2 boats made it pop? Strange.

Comment #33 by adamkitto
Saturday, February 12, 2011 @ 01:19:23 PM

Go back through the river in case you missed any as there is no time limit

Comment #34 by heliosmneto
Friday, February 18, 2011 @ 12:28:50 PM

This is very easy... Just stay far and keep shooting everything that you think you can destroy.

I did this on veteran and it wasn't nothing at all...

I flew through this mission on veteran and got it on my first try without trying.

The mission where you get your achievement is "Crash Site". When on the boat be
sure to destroy EVERY structure that is visible. Don't move on to the next
structure if only the roof has been taken off. Finish the building with the
machine gun until its almost gone. Be sure to check every corner especially
right before you enter the area where the patrol boat will be, there are a
couple of huts in the area you need to destroy in order to get the achievement.

You can get this achievement on recruit, just to make it easier for you.

Message me if you have anymore questions regarding to this achievement.

I liked this achievment.. Didn't have problems doing it, and you got good music while doing it!

Comment #40 by bronson23
Sunday, April 03, 2011 @ 12:13:10 AM

Yeah this was not that bad but it sucked. I had to do it a couple times. I figured out that if you press the Right Stick in you have a better chance of seeing the houses that are up in the hills. My best advice is to make sure you look at the top of the hills and not just at the ones on the shoreline. Watch for steps that go up into the hills as well.

Comment #43 by Remmus
Friday, May 13, 2011 @ 07:47:10 PM

I got this one without looking for it... I just kept firing the machine gun and missiles to every single structure I saw and, well, it just pop up. Maybe I was lucky.

A good idea would be not hurry and take the time you might need to fire both edges of the river.

Comment #45 by RedDwarfUK
Tuesday, May 24, 2011 @ 03:56:18 PM

5th time though now on recruit (already did it on vet) and I hammer everything, going back on myself numerous times and I still cant get it. I even make sure I kill everything at the end before taking the boat out.
One thing I have noticed, half way through the mission all 3 boats start shooting
at the water. Makes me wonder if its glitched?

Comment #46 by danielkrhines
Friday, June 10, 2011 @ 12:22:12 AM

Damn I can't get this one. Got it on PS3 but can't get it on 360. Can't figure out what I'm missing and it's the only achievement I have left for the main part of the achievements for the game.

Comment #47 by Creek220
Saturday, June 18, 2011 @ 11:49:35 PM

just go slow and shoot everything you see. it worked for me

I'm same as the guy 2 posts above. I got this first time on PS3 but I can't seem to get it when replaying on the 360.

Comment #51 by Septic
Monday, July 25, 2011 @ 08:08:01 PM

I played on recruit and died about 5 times and still got it. There are some
buildings up high on hills too. I also made sure each time I died, I would
go back up the river a bit to make sure everything was destroyed. To my surprise
there was always a building I missed when I was sure I destroyed it.

Comment #52 by Hist War Ion
Sunday, July 31, 2011 @ 04:16:14 AM

The final part on the river before you destroy the last boat there are houses inside the patrol boats area. You will have to enter it and destroy them before destroying the final boat.

Tuesday, August 23, 2011 @ 04:54:53 AM

I think I am going to write this achievement as impossible. I've attempted it several dozen times with no results. I've watched videos and followed them exactly and still no achievement...I give up

Comment #55 by Xx dandrews xX

Tuesday, August 30, 2011 @ 11:02:16 AM

going back on my last statement, i tried this on recruit going very slow and blowing the hell out of everything and didnt get it. just did this mission on vet and got it without even trying

Comment #57 by valleys5016

I've wanted to get this one for a while but I always miss like one building whenever I try it. Until quite recently I didn't really want to try to hundred percet this game but now I think i will. This and all the between achievements are all I need.

Comment #63 by Knaussenheimer
Saturday, December 24, 2011 @ 07:55:35 PM

I finally got this one after a good five or six tries. All I can say is just make sure you backtrack every now and then to make sure you don't miss any even if you think you've gotten them all. I thought I did too but I went back just to be safe and it turned out I missed like eight buildings. Now it's just the veteran cheevos for 100%

Comment #64 by ecoz24
Sunday, December 25, 2011 @ 06:20:04 PM

Hard achievement. I never got it, but I keep trying. It's pretty difficult with all the trucks and the buildings hidden all over the place.

just got it only blew up what had targets and all the towers I could see on veteran without dying, so not as time consuming as it seems.
