Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

Light Foot

Escape the ship with 2:15 left on the timer in Veteran.

In the level "Project Nova", after you fight the British and escape, you must set an explosive. Make sure you clear out all the enemies before planting it. There should be a Mosin–Nagant gun after killing the enemies in the first room. This should help you clear out the enemies in the second room, especially the enemies on the higher walkways. You can shoot through the metal gratings.

After setting the explosive, shoot the highlighted beam and make your way out. As you head out, there will be an enemy outside the door on your right and another coming on your left. Kill these two and then sprint down the walkway. There will be a few more enemies climbing onto the ship but you should have no issues killing them and proceeding. A last enemy should be up high so be forewarned. If you die at any time during this run, you may still have enough time to make it, as long as there is 2:15 left on the timer.

You have to do it in under 45 seconds with atleast 2:15 still on the clock, I got the achievment it popped up on my screen, went to check it out in my achievments, and it told me I had never even played blackops.. so i signed out and back in and all my achievments were back, but the light foot achievment was not there... fml.. i have to do this again.. its easy once you get there, its the long mission prior thats a hassel.

so you can just run through the majority of other guys?

Friday, November 19, 2010 @ 12:33:58 PM

Clear the room before planting the explosives... then be ready to shoot the supports, run, kill the two at the door to the ships deck, then run straight and up the steps turning right and down the rope. I shot randomly while running but not really specifically. The LT auto aim feature is kinda nice in this situation.

Thank you AKA The did work I got mine with 2:23 left on the clock once you kill the 2guys by the door reload your gun and keep running fast you don't really need to stop and shoot just run fast.

Sunday, November 21, 2010 @ 02:34:38 AM

Clear out all of the British before you plant the explosive. Then wait until the support beam is glowing. Don't try to shoot it before they tell you to as it won't work. Go up onto the catwalk and when you get to the second doorway, get the two Brits on the outside the doorway. Reload here. You should have 2:34 or 2:32 left on the clock at this point. Now sprint until you see guys climbing over the edge onto the ship. There is a red exploding barrel here. Shot at it til it blows up, then just sprint to the end. Don't worry about shooting anyone else. If you die at the very end and just miss it, just keep trying.

"Escape the ship with 2:15 left on the timer in Veteran" it doesn't say anything about escaping alive because I died right when I hit the rope and still got it. Thank goodness, I was about to throw my controller if I had to go through much more of that.

Comment #18 by Itzz Sh0wt1m3
Saturday, November 27, 2010 @ 08:27:58 AM

Very easy achievement Clear all british, go upstairs, shoot two guys and run. You'll die over there but there is a checkpoint. Run left around the boat and run upstairs and jump on the rope. This 30 G is to much I think.

Comment #19 by AUSTINscooter
Saturday, December 04, 2010 @ 05:09:53 PM

how can you do this whith exactly 2.15 left

Comment #20 by BossDJ
Tuesday, December 07, 2010 @ 01:50:54 PM

When does the achievement pop up? I know others pop up late, but I did it with time to spare and sat through watching the boat sink and Reznov talk at the end, but nothing.

Comment #21 by calm2850
Tuesday, December 14, 2010 @ 01:49:49 PM

probly 30g cause of the hard long mission before hand

Tuesday, December 21, 2010 @ 04:57:32 PM

I got exactly 2:15 and the achivement popped. Somewhat easy. You can run through most of the enemies.

P.S. Not fun getting there. Death Count: At least 15 :)

i get there roughly about 2:22 and get off the boat and
watch the cinematic and i dont get the achievement ive

Comment #24 by Narwal
Saturday, January 01, 2011 @ 10:37:30 AM

The first time I did it I ran through everyone and died right next to the rope and I still got the achievement.

Comment #25 by Bonzeemer
Sunday, January 02, 2011 @ 12:33:36 PM

So can be above 2:15 on the timer and still get the achievement?

Comment #26 by DocRevolt
Monday, January 03, 2011 @ 06:11:14 PM

The fuck, it has to be EXACTLY 2:15 I believe.

Comment #27 by blackdragon71425
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 @ 01:42:39 PM

This game is retarded. I grabbed the rope at exactly 2:15 and I didn't get it.
Now I have to do it all over again. Why can't we just restart at checkpoints,
instead of restarting the whole fucking level?

I just redid this entire mission. On veteran. And I finished at exactly 2:15. Does it have to be MORE? Ugh.

Comment #31 by N1GHTSLAYER
Sunday, January 09, 2011 @ 11:29:13 AM

i was so annoyed when i tryed this, I grabbed the rope at 2:14

Comment #32 by PhoenixTemplar
Thursday, January 13, 2011 @ 04:21:23 AM

Just so you know, it is possible to get this on Hardcore. I was playing through a second time for the Hardcore achievements, and wanted to see if it was possible, since I missed it on normal. Do-able, but probably not recomended.

Comment #33 by Sensai Buck
Friday, January 14, 2011 @ 02:11:57 AM

Got it on 2:22 yesterday on Veteran, but achievement didn't pop? I'm almost at the same place again I guess because the third Vet achievement didn't unlock ... just gotta kill the British then arm the bomb, but this mission is BORINGG!

Comment #34 by itwashectic
Wednesday, January 19, 2011 @ 03:31:20 PM

i got this by planting the bomb then immediately shooting the beam as soon as it allowed me too and running like hell there is a checkpoint right when you make it to the main deck so if you don't get to the part where you slide down the rope to get off the boat in 2:15 just die and you will re-spawn for another go it took me a few tries you should only have to shoot like 1 or 2 of the guys once you make it to the main deck in order to make it off the boat hope this helps someone

Thursday, January 27, 2011 @ 01:25:21 PM

This was definitely one of the hardest achievements I have ever tried to get. I'm sure it was really easy for some of you, but my heart was pounding out of my chest when I was trying to get to the rope. All of your comments helped tremendously, but I also found this youtube link very helpful:

Comment #37 by Cornholio
Thursday, January 27, 2011 @ 03:19:07 PM

Fuck this, did it twice - no achievements. What is wrong with this game..

Comment #38 by Cornholio
Thursday, January 27, 2011 @ 04:57:46 PM

Ok, I have to apologize for my last comment. Was my own stupidity as I went
to the rope exactly when the time was 2:15 as I thought it was supposed to
be. Decided to try it one more time. So was my third time to beat this level and
I just flew through the level without duying once, enemies just literally ran
into my scope. Never has such a fun in CoD campaign :-). So yeah finished to the
rope with about 2:25 and got the achievement just fine.

Comment #39 by MikerFF5
Friday, January 28, 2011 @ 01:00:22 PM

Does the clock keep going after you get to the rope? I got there with 2:16 on the clock with no achievement (and yes, I was on Veteran). Could those of you who have managed to get the achievement post the time you saw?


Comment #40 by MikerFF5
Saturday, January 29, 2011 @ 01:21:00 PM

Well, this time I got it - with 2:17 on the clock as I hit the rope.

Comment #44 by TH3 XB0X G3N1U5
Tuesday, March 01, 2011 @ 11:32:25 PM

i grabbed the rope right at 2:15 and did not get the achievement. can anyone explain why for me?

its stupid how we have to go thru the enitre fucking level for this. can i run thru on recruit and then change it to veteran when i get to this spot?

Comment #45 by xcolcolx
Thursday, March 03, 2011 @ 03:39:39 PM

i finished on 2:16 or 2:15. And I dinn't get it wtf?! I'm definetly not going to do it all over again :S

Comment #47 by ChaosDaddy187
Tuesday, March 08, 2011 @ 01:03:01 PM

I didnt get it the first time around. did it a second time just killed the first two people and ran until i got the checkpoint. after that its just luck. hit the rope with 2:18 left.

Comment #48 by tF Mateus
Thursday, March 10, 2011 @ 04:08:45 AM

did it with 2:16 and it didn't give it to me...i'm so freakin pissed i have to this whole level again. I'm just venting.

Comment #49 by JohnLocke95035
Thursday, March 10, 2011 @ 04:04:55 PM

Seeing that people didn't get it at 2:16. Theres probably a 2 second lag. I guess you need at least 2:17 on the clock when you get the check point.

Comment #50 by xxxAUSSIE4Dxxx
Sunday, March 20, 2011 @ 03:38:52 AM

easy, as long as you got to the first checkpoint in average time, if you get to the rope 9in 2:18 just kill yourself and you'll start at the checkpoint, even though i died at least 30 times you cant fail because of unlim. tries, it requires only luck, if you dont get then it is surely a glitch, this game has lots of them, my sis. got 100g on first level

Comment #51 by TijlerTez
Tuesday, March 22, 2011 @ 02:40:24 PM

damn i was at 2:17 at the rope to go down and i coudnt press x to go down then it was 2:15 and i ppressed it and he go then i watch the time is was 2:14 no achievement i was pissed off..

Comment #52 by Nickyocool
Monday, March 28, 2011 @ 05:35:12 PM

i did it on accident in 2:04
i didn't even know about this achievement til i got it

Comment #55 by pantaya
Saturday, April 16, 2011 @ 03:28:35 PM

the mission is real easy for me, last time i died twice getting to the lsat checkpoint, then got to the rope around 2:20. by the description i thought you had to grab the rope at 2:15....... well i guess 4th times the try, damn checkpoint at the bottom of the rope, gotta play it all over again. at least its easy for me, but i really wish you could skip the cut scenes and have the guys walk faster to the final door....

Comment #56 by MachKiller25

i have problems with this achievement, especially on veteran

Comment #57 by Equinox80
Friday, April 22, 2011 @ 03:38:22 PM

Especially on veteran? You can only do it on veteran! I've read most of the messages above and can't tell if you can do this with less than 2:15 or if it has to be bang on 2:15. Can someone please clarify? Thanks

Comment #58 by jamesdempster
Saturday, April 23, 2011 @ 11:30:01 AM

no you just have to do it before 2:15, doesnt have to be on the dot

Comment #60 by Galiant
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 @ 08:26:56 PM

so yeah, I am an admitted idiot, I had already beaten the game on Vet and was going for achievements I missed the first time around, and I guess all I can say is to make sure you are on Veteran while going for this one... unlike most of the other misc ach, this actually has to be done on Veteran lol, cuz I just spent 15 minutes getting there on Recruit xD and was puzzled for a moment as to why it didnt unlock.

Comment #61 by Galiant
Tuesday, April 26, 2011 @ 08:28:28 PM

although, I guess one question I have is, do you have to do the whole thing on Veteran? I am guessing you can, but itd be nice if you could just chang the difficulty to Vet before arming the bomb.

Comment #62 by DEADHEAD60K
Tuesday, May 17, 2011 @ 07:45:59 PM

i got it the second time. the best stategy is to get up to the main deck as fast as you can, kill the two british just outside the door and run like hell to the rope. you
don't even have to shoot anybody

Comment #67 by GanjaBud 2112
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 @ 03:46:16 PM

Wow, before I ever went for this achievement, I read through alot of posts and really got myself hyped up that this is going to be difficult. On the first try, I ran right through without dying, shooting only one enemy once I was past the two you have to kill right when you get to the deck of the ship. And had a little more than 2:30 left on the clock. EASY

Comment #68 by a Capibara
Wednesday, June 29, 2011 @ 04:24:50 PM

the guide online barely made it on 2.16 thats way too close no way im doing this.

Comment #75 by Snake Charmer
Thursday, October 06, 2011 @ 09:18:49 PM

Can be a bit of a pain. Recommend getting to the start of this and save quitting so you can dashboard and come back to this if you checkpoint later without enough time left.

For those that don't know what mission this is and haven't read the above posts it's the flashback mission where you play as Reznov (Project Nova i think).

Basically leg it as much as you can you're gonna cut it close either way. The online videos can help if you have trouble.

Comment #86 by growltiger
Thursday, July 18, 2013 @ 02:25:54 AM

I got a checkpoint with the countdown at 2:30. I sacrificed my first run to the rope so that I could stop and pick up intel. It took me about six or seven runs to reach the rope with 2:18 left. Only one of those five were failures due to missing the 2:15 deadline. I was pleased: a glitch free achievement.

Comment #87 by Plasmateardrop9
Sunday, May 04, 2014 @ 05:54:30 PM

What the fuck this achievement is not glitch free don't give me that shit. I hit the rope at 2:15 and it didn't unlock

Comment #88 by KellanS
Thursday, July 03, 2014 @ 05:05:26 AM

This achievement is not my friend. Played to it twice in the last two days, both times it didn't let me shoot the support til 2:40, so the checkpoint is about 2:20, and I cannot make it off in time. Just need this and the intel for the main game 1000... Ugh
