Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

In The Money

Finish 5 Wager Matches "in the money."  

You will need to have earned some CoD Points before attempting this. You can earn these points by jumping online into a Player match and having a game. Win or lose. No kills or 30 kills you should get around 100 - 1000 points in a game.

You must come in first, second, or third place to be "in the money." You can check the leaderboard during the game by pressing . You will also hear the announcer say "In the Money" if you are in the money, or "Out of the money" if you are not in the money (fourth through sixth place).

To set this up got to Multiplayer> Xbox Live> Wager Match. Then you can pick either:

  • "Ante Up" (Low Stakes) Starting Bid is 10 CoD Points. Can be doubled up to 20 Cod Points.

  • "Weekend Gambler" (Medium Stakes) Starting Bid is 1000 CoD Points. Can be doubled up to 2000 Cod Points.

  • "High Roller" (High Stakes) Starting Bid is 10,000 CoD Points. Can be doubled up to 20,000 Cod Points.

Game Types

  • "One in the chamber" One bullet in the chamber, a knife, three lives, and instant kills. Players receive a bullet after each kill.

  • "Sticks and Stones" You get a crossbow, a ballistic knife, and a tomahawk. Kill players to score points. Get tomahawk kills to reset enemy scores to zero. Good luck.

  • "Gun Game" Kill players with your weapon to advance to the next weapon. First to get a kill with each weapon wins.

  • "Sharpshooter" Weapons cycle every 45 seconds. Kill players to score points. Gain perks for getting killstreaks.

I know this is kind of cheap but I found it really easy. Do this if you cannot get it. Two controller method: One in the Chamber-Look at your the bottom screen and find its location and go kill him. Do 3 times. Now that he is died you can view everyones screen its like all time UAV. Have fun and win easy money. Or just do it legit it toke me 5 tries legit.

Haha #9 you would be reported for boosting.

This isn't that hard if you play a lot of multiplayer. Just play ante up. People run around like idiots in gun game. Sharpshooter is slightly more difficult but I got 2 of those in the money. Gun game was very easy to me though

Does this need to be done in one session or can it be spread out?

In reply to comment #13 this can be done over multiple sessions but will be quick if you follow the advice above and go for one in the chamber.

Sunday, May 29, 2011 @ 01:30:23 PM

I agree with previous post!
Can't get it... mainly because people are playing with two players...
Best way is for us to search for the same game at the same time so we end up together.
Message if you also need or can help... GT = Clubby85

if you can get a 6 man party, you can do any ante up match with the group of friends to boost. ante up is the only one you can have a party for as its essentially free.

gun game is soo fun i'd like to see this as a normal game mode in MW3

Can't get this
I'm new to Black Ops (currently only lvl. 9)and everyone I'm playing against is
on prestige - I don't stand a chance against people who've clearly been playing
this game since it's release.
The only points I've managed to get in about 15 attempts are survivor
points through hiding, and they don't get you in the top 3.
