People are saying that if you have entered the cheat code 3arcunlock it stops
you from getting this achievement but if youve entered zork or doa thats okay its
just 3arcunlock that does it im going to try the campaign today and see if i get it

You get the achievement right after you go up to the boat and the soldier says that the war is over... for now.

Then you get the achievement and goes to the lady saying the numbers, the credits come on in, then it takes you to zombie mode on Five. You should have gotten the achievement...

Monday, January 10, 2011 @ 08:16:00 AM

Same here No achievement. Beat it on Harden and should have gotten two but no. This is bull. I didn't enter any cheat codes. Know I did jump around midway through playing to get other achievements but why would that cause it to not give it to me. Some are saying you can't save midway through a level which I also did first time through. I'm going through as veterian but only saving at the bigging of the level which pisses me off b/c it took me over 3 hours to get through excecutive order. (it was already 1am when i started that level so I was tired when I got to the tunnels) I wanna know why Treyarch hasn't address this issue?

Is it absolute that if you enter the cheat you don't get it or is it just a guess ?

Hy guys!

I wrote again, becaouse i got the ach.! :D
I don't know, how or why, but when i played zombies on Five with my friend
i changed the map. Than i want to change it back, but i lost it and the DOA too.
I quickly watched, my campaing, and i lost everything, and i already beat a few
mission on veteran. I said: WTF?!, than i started to beat the game again. And at
last of the game i earned this ach., the veteran ach. and an another one!

I can confirm that putting in 3 arc unlock DOES NOT stop you getting the achievement. I put it in twice after five disappeared once on me, beat the campaign the other day but it did not unlock. i played the last mission a few times and it still didn't unlock it. so I started a new game on veteran (i was only messing around on regular the first play through) and after beating the third mission Stand down was unlocked along with Cold warrior. I don't know why but i just wanted to let people know 3 arc unlock does not block this achievement.

Comment #25 by shaunyboy
Sunday, January 23, 2011 @ 12:38:51 PM

soz people kirkymax5 is right 3arcunlock does not stop you from getting the achievent
but i still dont get why this achievement is glitche or something why cant treyarch cant
tell us how we can get it.Evry1 on my friends list has it but i dont .the only thing i can think of is beating the first 3 lvls on veteranb but i dont see how thats going to
unlock.this is weird and STUPID

I played Multiplayer til lvl 50, got bored and started the campaign on Veteran. After the first mission I unlocked this chievo, plus the one given for finishing the first three missions. odd.

So i just played the first campaign mission for the first time since the day the game came out and i unlocked this achievement as soon as i fired my first shot... idk if anyone has experienced this but it was weird. i did not use any cheats either. i normally just play zombies or multiplayer. i thought i would share. To Treyarch... Wtf is with all of these glitched achievements???

Im pretty sure to get this you have to start story mode and never change the level. Meaning no jumping around mission select, always select resume until you beat the game straight through. I skipped around levels for easy achievements and then beat the game and didnt get this achievement so im gonna play straight through and never select a mission and im thinking this achievement will unlock. Treyarch is killin me!

Comment #43 by MereDoomkiller
Monday, June 20, 2011 @ 03:39:06 PM

Same Here, But The Reason Is If You Put 3ARC UNLOCK In The Laptop In The Main Menu Or You Done Something Back (Do You Know Like Something To Get You Banned)You Will Not Get The Achievement But If You Didn't Do Them Reasons Well I Don`t Know Why.

P.S. I Don`t Think This Effected The Hardened Or Veteran.

I think PrizeFighter360 has a good idea. I went thru the campaign on Veteran and I didn't get the Stand Down or Black Ops Master ach. (However I did get the Burn Notice ach.) I changed the level at one point cuz my niece wanted to play, I have a feeling that is what screwed it up. I am currently going thru the campaign on Recruit without ever changing the level to see if I can at least get the Stand Down ach. I'll post my findings in a day or so, it's gettin late and I'm not sure if I can complete the whole campaign tonight.

PS - I also accidentally played about 5 levels of this game without being connected to XBOX Live. Not sure if that had anything to do with it, but FYI I didn't get the Down and Dirty ach. or the It's your funeral ach. because I forgot to recover my gamertag from my friends XBOX. (I wasn't aware that achievements don't count unless you're connected to XBOX Live, I was pretty pissed about that.)

Comment #48 by La Man0 de Dios
Thursday, July 14, 2011 @ 06:06:32 AM

OK, update. I just completed the mission "Numbers" and the Stand Down ach. popped up. I'm guessing this means that the only way you can get the Stand Down or Black Op Master ach. is by playing the game through without ever switching levels. In other words, to get this achievement, you must start a new campaign, and you may only continue your game after saving and quitting by selecting the RESUME option. If the game ever tells you that you are going to lose progress on your current campaign, then you will not get this achievement. I theorize that after I play the missions "SOG", "The Defector", and "Numbers" on Veteran difficulty, I will finally get my Black Op Master achievement. I hope this was somewhat helpful to those of you who were screwed out of these achievements. (In short, play th

I also didn't get this. If this becomes the one achievement that keeps me from getting 100%, I am not gonna be happy.

I completed the whole thing on Regular. And yes, I only used the RESUME button and never actually selected a mission.

This achievement as well as the black ops master achievement unlocked for me as soon as I loaded the disc. All levels were unlocked and most of the intel but none of the mission specific achievements were unlocked. This was the first time I had ever played black ops on my profile lol. kinda disappointing because I have less to work towards.

Thursday, March 15, 2012 @ 06:40:39 PM

you didnt get it because you didnt complete every level in order and you cant just do the last level ive treid just the last level and it didnt work but when i did every level it worked so dont do 3arc on terminal and do the last level,do them all. I hope this will help all of you!
