That hill is the biggest pain in the fucking ass in this game for me. It's not even fun.

SOG was a pain but if you keep your head down and push the barrels over the edge you will beat it easily. I suggest start on the left and work yourself to the right by crawling on the ground. THen go after the barrels.

yeah i agree, SOG is by far the hardest mission on veteran. If i complete it on veteren i get black ops master and this acheivment however I dont think my controller wants to get smashed against the wall again :D

I didnt get the COLD WARRIOR achievement and dont want to continue if no one is getting the achievements unlocked...

Treyarch is a joke... the patch sucks a$$

SOG for me was pretty easy. Got it through the first hill on my third try. Second hill a little harder but still not bad and got through on around the fourth. The tunnel is easily the hardest part of the game.

Got through SOG easilyyy. For the hill just get through the weapon cache on the
right and work your way down.

go left to right because Woods will take care of the one on the far left if you clear enough enemies

Currently finding this hill impossible. >.< Achievements such as Cold Warrior unlocked fine for me, so I don't know what's going on with everyone else. Back to getting owned at this hill I guess...

This ir really freakin irritating for me, cus i spen HOURS trying to get down that freakin hill in SOG. I spen SO long doing it on veteran so i could get the achievement, and guess what the little bastard didnt pop. Ive not touched the difficulty settings, and i have got the achievements for the missions before and after. Hell, i dont even know which level i 'didnt do on veteran' is there any way to check? It really grinds my gears cus not im gunna have to do them both again, the achievements will be in the wrong bloody order. thanks treyarch you total c**ts.

And sorry for double posting, but once while going down the hill on SOG, I superman dived down towards some cover and instead flew over half the entire hill and was killed instantly.

I found the best way to get to the napalm barrels to be working left to right and grenade-ing the area below and right right before attempting to reach the barrels. As I kicked each one, I would run a few steps right and go prone behind a box to recoup myself and heal. There's a bunker on the right that has four grenades in the window as well as a China Lake if you want more explosive firepower.

For climbing the next hill, I did it in one attempt by going prone on the left side and slowly crawling up while looking right to shoot enemies. Taking it slowly, I completed it in about 4mins. Your allies will kill a lot of the enemies while slowly climbing the hill in prone position.

I don't know for sure but I think u can't play zombies or multiplayer while in the middle of one of the veteran mission acheivments. I played numbers ,project nova, multiplayer than victor Charlie and it didn't work,however when I played op 40,vorkuta than executive orders it worked with no multiplayer or zombies in between.

Got through the whole game on veteran only to find I didn't get the achievements for completing the game... I look on my list and realize I didn't get credit for this one (but have all the others). I know for a fact I didn't touch the difficulty settings... UGH! Now I have to redo SOGand The Defector so I can get this, then hopefully my completion as well... SOB

Comment #23 by yetiman229
Sunday, January 16, 2011 @ 03:53:17 PM

pezjono1986, its probably SOG that didnt count, as thats exactly what happend for me. To everybody else, i know people say go through the right with the weapons chache, but i couldnt do it that way, take the left route. go down to the first barricade with woods etc, then go left, and stop at the next one, pick some vietnamese off, then head down to the right to where woods is. then kill the two on the right, stab the barrel and back off for a second into the cover, then run and gun. worked for me both times :D

One time on SOG, I got past the downhill section from hell, but then when in the guided missile section, some glitch resulted in me losing the jeep and the missile launcher. So although I got past the hardest part, I still couldn't complete the mission. Anybody else have this problem?

Lol I also didn't touch my settings, just completed the game finally on Veteran, not because it was hard, just didn't have much interest in beating it. Anyways, beat it, didn't get the veteran completion achievement, checked my cheebs, and I didn't get credit for SOG/Defector. Awesome treyarch! Gotta do it again I gay lol

S.O.G suxs lol i just beat the mission took me 20 trys to get down the hill, whoever said going up the hill is hard suxs at FPS lol I got up the other hill on my first try it was simple. Executive order was tough to but if ur aggresive and good u shouldnt have a problem i got through on my 11th try.

Friday, July 15, 2011 @ 07:04:04 PM

stupid checkpoints got me into a death loop, after you use the remote the first time before you even get up the hill (at the start of the video. i was cornered with 2 enemys in front blocking the right turn to the hill, two running in the trench to the left and half a clip of ammo in my gun. no matter what i do i get killed 3 seconds after i respawn, SOG IS BS!!!!

Comment #41 by tylermoe20
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 @ 04:29:52 PM

Yeah by far going back on the game on Vet, this mission was VERY hard on the hill where you have to knife the barrels. Called SOG? Idk, just that part took me many times, until i finally watched the Youtube vid and did exactly what he was doing.

Comment #42 by steelytheman22
Friday, September 23, 2011 @ 05:27:00 PM

sog has to be the hardest mission in all of black ops but once you manage this
mission each mission will seem so much easier when you get up to the barrel
part just drop once you knife it and move back till you get a check point
if you are having trouble with this come back to it later

Comment #45 by Knaussenheimer
Tuesday, January 17, 2012 @ 08:32:44 PM

Just got this one now I only need four more for 100% which shouldn't be hard because executive order and sog are the two hardest so now all I really need to worry about is project nova (because of the lightfoot achievement) and rebirth (because of the tank and nova gas parts that were already really hard on hardened so I'm sure I'll have alot of fun with them on veteran).

Comment #46 by Sgt NELS
Tuesday, February 28, 2012 @ 05:09:49 PM

I was actually surprised how easily I got through SOG. I didn't find this to taxing at all. Executive order on the other hand was a difficult objective to achieve and in my opinion the hardest level I have completed so far. On the part with the barrels I went down the hill to the left there is a nice bunker that is a good starting point for working your way to the first barrel.

Comment #47 by xTwiistsx
Sunday, May 27, 2012 @ 03:39:21 AM

i dont think sog is harder than executive orders

Comment #48 by Goku1552
Tuesday, July 03, 2012 @ 09:06:28 PM

is the key to beating this level to knife the barrels and stay up high? i went low and they kept respawning and coming over and i got cought in a BAD checkpoint death loop.

Comment #49 by ApothSidekick
Friday, December 21, 2012 @ 02:49:10 AM

For me, it seems, SOG is next to imposible. I feel as though Im playing frogger with bullets... any suggestions?
