Call of Duty: Black Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

Sally Likes Blood

Demonstrate killer economic sensibilities by taking down 3 enemies with a single bullet.

You can do this in various ways. You can play Dead Ops Arcade (see "Insert Coin" achievement), and kill 3 zombies there with a single bullet. (Credit to 'pougalbear' for confirming) Or you can try to line up 3 zombies by playing the Zombie mode. If you prefer to try it during the single-player campaign, I have detailed information below.

In the mission "Numbers", when you are escaping with Dr. Clarke, he should open up his weapons cache. Grab the PSG1 gun from his wall, and as he opens the door, aim down the hallway and you will see an enemy running towards you. If you time it correctly, there will also be 2 other enemies right in-line behind him. If you shoot them all, the achievement will pop up immediately. If you need to retry, just kill yourself with a grenade to restart the checkpoint. You have flashbangs in this level as well, if you need to stun enemies in place.

All I know is I blasted three guys with one spaz shot on Hue City and I didn't get the achievement. Maybe its a particular part of the game you complete it in, Like a sniper shot, or a slow-mo breach. But I am positive I killed 3 with one shotgun shot several times in the Hue City mission.

i got this one on accident while playing the Dead Ops arcade, but i imagine it's a lot like the collateral damage challenge in MW2 where you have to get like a penetration kill through the one enemy into another. try just lining up a shot with 2 guys behind another & you should get it but make sure you only shoot one bullet.

Yeah I also got this one in Dead ops arcade, had a turret and robot chicken out and got it by accident. Not sure but during the Project Nova mission if you go along the right side after getting the mortar strikes there is a scoped mossin. A little ways past that there is a building leading to the bridge there are usually 3 guys stacked for that.

In Dead Ops Arcade, I was in Round 2 and had the weapon with spread firing. I fired at a group of zombies and it unlocked instantly.

You might be able to get this in victor Charlie. When you're in the tunnels theres a moment after you get the intel where there are three enemies in the tight passageway. I killed two with one bullet. I'll go back and try again after I beat the game to confirm this.

It's best to do this on zombies . Start up the game run upstairs buy the M1 wait
for the zombies to get in stand on the left side of the stairs and wait for them
to start walking towards you . once there are three lined up run up the stairs on
the landing shoot them once and it should hurt all three of them then shoot again
making sure you hit all three again when they hit the floor achievment should
unlock .

Monday, November 15, 2010 @ 11:21:33 AM


Easiest way to get this achievement is in the beginning level right after Woods
stabs the guys hand and you are ready to go outside to firefight the policia.
Right when you exit the door you will see civilians running around the
right side. Keep shooting at them until you get the achievement. I found that
when they bunch up trying to go though the opening of the wall to the left
still looking to the right side of the street is when it is the best
opportunity. This will automatically end the mission because you killed a
civilian, but you will either get the achievement or it will conveniently
restart the checkpoint if you didn't.

I got by accident on the SOG level:
at the begining of the level after you drag hudson across a trench you do through the tranches until you reach a part where you see a chopper and charlies crossing over the trench on some ladders then you see that striaght on 5 or 6 enemies run towards doen a narrow trench i shot like crazy and got by accident ERGO

Doa is the easiest way to get it. first few can get it by circling around the map letting the zombies get in a big horde. with pretty much any weapon i got it with the machine gun you start with.

On "WMD", after the "Mr. Black Op" achievment, u will enter a room and allies will reppel thru the windows. Run further and 3 soldiers will come out from a little room (in this room theres also a Intel). Shoot these 3 with the AUG.

Start this on dead ops arcade if you have it, and try and find the shotgun. Find a group of zombies and try to fire individual shots, like one every group, and you will soon et it. I got it this way.

I got this one by accident also. In the opening, I walked out of the bar and aimed at the civilian to the right of the door. I hit him and the cops standing behind him. It restarted me for killing the civilian and gave me the achievement. Hope this helps. I also got it in dead ops on my other account.

I already tried it on dead ops so many times and didn't get it.
All my mates got it except me so I guess I got to keep trying.

I got this achievement on Khe Sahn initially running through the trenches. When the NVA starts dropping down the ladder to move across the trench, a bunch of NVA start coming through the trenches. I just started shooting and I was able to get it. Didn't try though, I just got lucky.

i got it the way CYBORG described on the first try. just ran out the door and fired to my right... i didn't even aim i just kept shooting. i killed a civilian which stopped my game but the achievement popped up right after. waaaay easier than spending an afternoon playing victor charlie waiting for the vc guys to come off the boat in a line like some people have. that way didn't work for me and after 2 hours of trying i quit.

Heres a quick guide
When you are on the level when you are hudson and weaver and you are escaping with the doctor.

When you first jump down grab the sniper pg961 or something
When you open the door crouch and shoot the three guys

Keep in mind you need to wait a couple of seconds when the guys walk to the doorway

I found a bug in the Dead Ops portion. On 4 separate occasions I dropped 3
Zombies with a single shot (once with the M-1 and 3 times with the Olympia)and
the achievement didn't unlock will update after attempting Cyborgs' method.

I just got this. i got it in the mission where you have to destroy the big ass rocket when your disguised as a Russian. when everyone is alerted and your supposed to break into the coms room there are 3 guards standing off 2 a building to your left just line them up cuz they don't move from there spots and they don't know your a threat yet. pull out your revolver and blast them.

Sunday, December 26, 2010 @ 12:25:22 PM

Cyborg's way is definitely the best, got it in about 10 tries, PLUS if you fail then it automatically restarts right where you want it to. My recommendation is to do it that way.

Thursday, December 30, 2010 @ 06:00:42 PM

I've done seven levels of Dead Ops without the achievement, and got bored of playing it, while some of you got it after 30 seconds? Any tips?
And when I tried getting it on the first mission, when I killed the civilians,the mission restarted, but when it restarted, my screen was all blurry, and I moved very slowly. It wouldn't let me pause, and when I tried to leave to get shot, it wouldn't let me, and I kept teleporting back to were I started. So, I tried to pull a grenade, but it wouldn't blow up! this game just won't let me have this achievement!!!
I need tips, before I break this game!!!

I got lucky twice, in zombies "Five" i used the M14 and saw a zombie so i shot its head and i got a head shot and achievement, and ends up i got 2 more head-shots, and in MW2 i used the mini gun in campaign and got the achievement too.

Comment #58 by Torm23
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 @ 03:58:00 AM

The easiest way to get this achievement is in Zombie mode. No skill and no effort are practically required to get this.

The way I did it is the following:
In the first round leave 3 zombies alive and kill the rest. Buy M14 off the wall and shoot one bullet at each zombie (in the chest - not in the head). If by accident you manage to kill one of them just cook a grenade, kill yourself and start over.

Once you have fired 1 bullet at each one of them get behind a corner and wait for them to turn and line up. It should be quite easy because they are soooooooooo slow in the first level.
As soon as they are lined up fire a single bullet in the torso of the first zombie (you don't need to hit the head - just hit it in the middle to make sure the bullet will also hit the other 2 zombies th

Comment #59 by Torm23
Tuesday, January 04, 2011 @ 04:01:42 AM

that are following.
Because the zombies are already damaged from the first bullet you have fired at them, this last bullet will easily go through all of them and the achievement will unlock.

If for any reason you fail to kill them all with one bullet kill yourself with a grenade and try again. You don't want to progress to Level 2, since that will only make things a bit more difficult for you.

Hope that helps!!

Wednesday, January 05, 2011 @ 08:42:31 PM

I just got this in Project Nova on Recruit. Right after your friend is gassed in the chamber beside yours, you can step out and pick up a scoped, bolt-action, rifle. British soldiers will be running toward you through the narrow hallway. Let them start entering the hallway and shoot while standing up and looking down the hallway. I unintentionally got it doing this.

Monday, January 10, 2011 @ 07:18:27 AM

I killed 3 zombies with the olympia numerous times and I still didn't get the achievement. Used one bullet. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong??

Comment #65 by Torm23
Tuesday, January 11, 2011 @ 09:48:58 AM

@ ViralObject891

The Olympia shotgun fires many pellets with each cell. So maybe that doesn't count as a single bullet (maybe the game considers each pellet as a different bullet).
I don't know if that's correct, I'm just saying that maybe you should try with another weapon

Comment #66 by motayba
Tuesday, January 11, 2011 @ 09:07:11 PM

(Realized after writing this that GWEED0speedo already pointed this out in comment #60, but just to confirm ...)

I had tried to get this achievement at least a dozen times in "Numbers" but couldn't do it. But was able to do it in the "Nova 6" mission on my first try.

After Dragovich kills Resnov's best friend, and you start fighting the Brits, clear out the first room. Then pick up the Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle. And approach the exit of the room. Lots of Brits start coming at you in a line and there are a few opportunities to hit three lined up.

I haven't finished the game yet, but so far, this looks like the best place to get the achievement.

If you do what this video suggests, you should be able to get it. Might take a few trys, but it works eventually. Took me about 15-20 or so. My suggestion is an easier setting so you don't get hit right off the bat. I got it by going about a foot inside the door, then going prone between the middle of the hall and the left wall. I hit the 1st and 2nd guy repeatedly, and even got the 1st and 3rd a few times. Just keep at it and it will pop. Good luck.

I got this in the most luckiest way. I got this on Project Nova. Near the 2nd Mounted Machine Gun. 1 guy was on the stirrer, 1 guy was behind him, and another guy running behind the. I used a Mosin Nagant Scoped and took out all three.

Easiest way to get it is on the mission Executive Order, just before Woods kicks the door down you should see a group of 3 enemies standing in a line outside a building. Run up to them and shoot them with your revolver from the side and the achievement should pop up.

If I am not mistaken, it say "...kill 3 ENEMIES..." haha(: but I went and reaped on all those civilians with my M16 on the first mission...took me like twenty tries though!

Comment #94 by Balltongue
Sunday, March 20, 2011 @ 12:03:00 PM

The easiest way to get this is on "Numbers" Grab the PSG1 from behind the refrigerator and in the hallway kill the first wave of enemies then 3 more come towards you in single file, line up your shot and there you go, simple.

Saturday, April 02, 2011 @ 08:56:56 PM

Its actually pretty easy to do. Go to zombies on Kino Der Toten. Buy the M14 off the wall immediately, its upstairs on the right. Let all the zombies (should only be 5 or 6 on first round) come out of their windows (don't board any up or knife any zombies) while shooting them 4 times with your PISTOL, not M14 yet, in the body (not the head). 1 or 2 could accidentally die. Then try to get at least 3 of them them in a line so one shot, with the M14 now, will hit all of them. It only took me about 5 minutes. If you die accidentally, you can just retry as the game will automatically start over!

I've figured out the secret to this achievement! Right in the beginning of the game, as soon as you get your M16 from Carlos, run out the door and you'll see a bunch of civilians running off to the right. Shoot at them with your M16 while they're all lined up, and ding! Achievement Unlocked

Everyone thinks they have to do it in the campaign. You don't. It is simple.
Play dead ops arcade for about 10 minutes only using your gun and you will get it.

i got it in DOA, i dont know how but i did. but maybe it can work if you line up 3 people in MP and snipe them in the head?

Are there any other techniques? I have tried every single one I've seen on here and none have worked. I have also tried using the insta-kill on all four zombies maps but haven't gotten it to unlock. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Tuesday, May 31, 2011 @ 11:21:38 PM

Zombies is the easiest way. I tried about 40 times doing it Cyborgs way and it
never popped. Maybe because the achievement says "enemies" hmmm. Anyway, use the
M14 in Kino Der Toten or whatever it is, weaken all the zombies you see with 1
shot to take off an arm or something, there's about 6, and just run up and down
the stairs in a circle until they all line up well enough for you to send a
bullet through at least three of them. I was relatively close range when I did
it and it went through 5 of them haha so no need to risk life and limb just line up the shot and take it. Cheers. :)

On victor Charlie you can get it where you enter the town and get to that bit with the gun you have to destroy with the grim reaper go pull out your sniper as it's your secondary wait under thus like walkway thing aim at the river next to the barn 3 guys are lined up on a boat crouch and shoot through the chest area of first guy bullet should go right through and kill all 3

Friday, June 10, 2011 @ 10:39:21 PM

I finally got this today after doing every method I've seen on this and a few others that are on YouTube. I was playing call of the dead and noticed that around round seven when they start coming in a bit faster, there is this one spot inside the room on the second floor of the boat where the zombies spawn and there are four perfectly lined up.

You dont need to do it in kino der toten.WARNING: GET ALL THE THE ACHEVEIMENTS EXPECT THE ZOMBIE ONES!Now,as you see,The map five has the table glitch patched.You will have to delete all memory from call of duty black ops to make all glitches unpatched,Lastly,Go to the map five and hit the bottom of 1 of the glass door windows,You need to hit the bottom 2 times,repair the barrier with 2 peices of wood,Jump on the wood and aim for the table.NOTE:NOT THE BIG TABLE.then aim for the little table and jump.wahala!Your standing on the little table.Then while running jump to the big table.the zombies will be after you!so make sure you have M14 with you.keep shooting zombies u get the acheveiment,when you get the acheveiment,you can exit,but if you want to get to round 100,dont exit at all.But it i

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 @ 08:03:05 PM

I will upload a video soon to show how to do this.

Dead Ops mode, very first island.

Stand in the middle of island and only shoot North, South, East or West towards the Zombie's spawn points. They will line up nicely for you. You don't even need to use left stick once you're centered on the island.

Achievement unlocked.

Hope this helps.

I got this one the first time going through the campaign by accident while in the rebirth mission. It was while you are going to stop Mason. It is right before you cross the bridge in the tank you have and the gas gets fired. I shot at some guys on the bridge and idk if I hit some explosive tanks or what but it worked for me. Didn't even use a gun, just the tank o_O

I did this on Kowloon. Right after you jump over the gap behind the house and land on the balcony clarke and weaver move a fridge. Pick up the psg1 sniper and crouch facing the door. After the door is opened you will see 2 guys running towards you wait for a moment then you will see a guy behind them. This is rather annoying because 9/10 times you will only get the double kill because the third guy only stays for a second. If you fail just cook a grenade and kill yourself and try again. Eventually you will get it :). Hope this helps

Got this on Dead Ops Arcade with the Ray GUn powerup, but it was an accident.
Another easy way is to pack-a-punch the M1911. It will become Mustang&Sally and
it will fire semi-auto rockets. Just line up zombies so that you kill 3 of them with just one shot!

It's easy. Play Zombies if your good, Kino:) Go for the Python from the
Mystery Box then either try it with it not upgraded, or if it hasn't worked by
round 10. Pack A Punch it so it's the cobra, then get them in a line, keep spraying
at them, you will eventully get the achievement, extremley annoying if you don't
get it first time.

I'm so mad about this achievement. after trying so hard and finally getting it I made my friend an account on my xbox and he got it randomly on the first level of the game right before the part where you kill Castro he was just spraying and he managed to make it unlock...fluke

Comment #135 by MorbidEclipse24
Tuesday, September 06, 2011 @ 09:44:30 PM

EASIEST WAY! is numbers. I just did it. NUMBERS! A short while after starting the mission you will leap off a rooftop into a small room where they will move some object revealing a room full of guns. Grab the PSG1 and wait for them to open the door. once the door is open crouch just barely outside the door and wait for 3 enemies to come running down towards you. wait for the right moment when they are lined up and tke the shot. shoot them anywhere in the body it will count. its quick and easy! just take your time and play on recruit of course. Heres a link showing just that.

I had no idea how to get this until I played zombies on ascension and the achievement popped up while I used the death machine on a bunch of zombies. So I'm guessing that would be the easiest way.

Sunday, September 18, 2011 @ 04:09:54 PM

I did this on zombies mode (kino ver detoten). On wave 1 immediately get the rifle upstairs, wait until all 6 zombies are in the room, kill 3 of them, shoot the remaining 3 in the body area twice with the pistol, get them to follow you around so that they are toghether (dont shhot them in the legs or they will limp and be slower than the others). Once they are grouped toghether run to the top of a staircase and duck down, wait till they are near you and shoot, if all 3 die the achievement should pop. DO NOT USE THE SHOTGUN, i tried with the shotgun and the achievement did not unlock. good luck.

I tried the story and it took me forever to get it that way.

Friend wanted achievement loaded the Zombie map, wave one just instantly buy a m14 and shoot to kill all but 3 zombies then shoot each of the three zombies left in the left ONCE!! then run around and get them to all come at you, time it first (sometime they dont single file). First try instantly got it took 2mins apposed to 30min of annoying story tries.

NOTE: Wave one zombies only take 2 shots so you DONT have to preform a headshot, the zombies will be weak enough with a chest shot from the m14

Another method is to get the L96A1 on five stand near a computer in the war room
and the zombies will line up single file. Aim down the scope, fire and achievement

Comment #148 by BozBazooka

I made a second account and was playing zombies in five when I got this (for the second time). I got an L96 from the box and my friend was running a train so I literally just spanned shots into his train until I got it. I think it only took me about three shots though.

Just choose the map 5 on zombies, The windows on the elevator side of the spawn room have long sight lines so you'll be able to wait for 3 to line up.

There are some videos showing that you can get this achievement on the 1st mission (Operation 40) by shooting civilians. Tried to get it that way and failed. Also tried to do what the video in the explanation says in Numbers but also failed. What should I try?

Comment #172 by NecromanceR62GR
Sunday, March 30, 2014 @ 12:20:41 PM

Finally did it!! Mission Project Nova, when you are prompted to throw smoke grenades to fire mortars, there is a bridge with 4-5 Germans on it. Instead of destroying the bridge with the mortars, you run towards it and try to line 3-4 Germans with the Mosin Nagant

Comment #173 by Schimpie
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 @ 10:53:29 PM

Took me 3 tries during the first mission. Tried the way described in comment #20.

Luckily it didn't take any more tries because waiting till be able to get started takes quite long.
