Call of Duty: Black Ops Achievements

Chimp on the barbie

In Ascension, kill a space monkey with a fire trap.  

This one could require some luck, but it is mostly timing and positioning. There is a fire trap in the doorway connecting the Pack-a-Punch machine to the outside area just below the power switch. Just wait around the trap and when a monkey comes towards you, make sure you are on the opposite side and turn the trap on. The monkey should run through and get burnt to a crisp. This can be made easier if you have purchased Speed Cola as the monkeys will be headed to that machine to steal your perk.

Haha! Oh wow, this achievement alone makes me want to get the DLC, but no goddamn way i will be paying 1200 MSP for 5 maps, that's just ridiculous. Shame about that, cause if it were 600 or so, treyarc would be getting a lot more people buying it.

Chimp on the barbie.. Oh man that's good.

honest the price problem people keep bringing up is stupid, the zombie map alone
has tonsss of work in it, and as such i feel that its totally worth it, also the
monkeys seem to bring a nice change up to the basic mechanics

i think this achievemnt is going to be like see me stab me heal me or sacrificial lamb.
seems like pure luck you have to get this fire trap from a mystery box.. hopefully not

I think by fire trap it means the floor activated ones. Theres one on kino der toten, they're like the electric doorways in the other maps, you pay 1000 points and the trap activates for a while :)

i actualy found that sacrificial lamb was alot easier on five just turn on the power and go into the pap room after u find out if the theif is coming and then when the door opens shoot your buddy and bang easy achievement

This achievement sounds pretty fun, the other 3 sound alright too, found that in both WaW and this there are some pretty funny lil cheevos like this, nuking one zombie, using your friend as bait with the crossbow etc etc, other than zombies being great, gives me another reason to love this game. Plus 1200 points for the map is fine with me, not too bad in my opinion keeps you playing a good game with a decent zombie mode. Don't blame Treyarch for trying to make a bit of money, they deserve it. After all they didn't have to make the game in the first place lol...

I don't know if anyone can confirm this but if one of you kills the space monkey with the fire trap, everyone else gets the achievement? Cos that's what just happened to my party : D

This is actually pretty easy if you know what you are doing.All you have to do is after turning on the power purchase a perk then run outside of the building through the front door and open the door on the right hand side. Once you have done that defend until your screen turns red. This indicates that the monkeys are coming. When your screen does turn red immediately enable the trap by hold x on the red box next to the door you opened and wait for a monkey to run through it. Achievement Unlocked.

Thursday, February 03, 2011 @ 07:22:20 AM

U have 2 turn on the power first and then monkeys will apear in the same rounds as dogs I think. If u have quick revive or any other perk u have stand next to the machine and kill all the monkeys before they steal your perk.

I got all the DLC achievements in one game. This one was pretty simple...and only one person in game has to do it for everyone to get it.

Step 1: Turn on the Power

Step 2: Buy a perk (you need at least 1 perk for the monkeys to show up the FIRST time...after that they will appear as often as your standard dog/crazy scientist). (another aside...stamin-up is easiest for this achievement).

Step 3: Be sure you have opened the gate to the Stamin-Up area. Once you see the sky get red, guard the Stamin-Up Machine. The monkeys will walk through the fire trap no problem. They are smart enough to return your grenades, but not smart enough to avoid fire. The trap is in the pathway from the main area into the Stamin-up perk room. Turn it on about 5 seconds into the round and one is bound to b

sorry double post forgot the TIP:

easiest place to do this is to go down the curved ally way out side to the
Stamina-up once you past the fire wait till the monkeys start coming and
turn it on. Damn easy and awesome achievement.

This Achievement is simple, go through the top door that cost 750. Once out of that door make a right, till you see an open space where there is a door that cost 1250. after that there is an open door take the stairs up to the next room and do the same for the next set of stairs there will be a door that will cost 1000 opne it and the power switch will be right there. turn on the power if u don't have enough points afterwords find a camp spot un til you get about 4000 points. Make a crawler so you can make your back to the first door you opened and there will be a gate that cost 1000. make your way to the open area and the stamine up machine will be there buy the drink and kill the crawler after that run back to the perk machine and set the fire trap off and you will have 35G's add to your

It's kinda sad that it took me this long to get this achievement but I finally got it today. I have never really tried for it until today but it's super easy. All you have to do is turn on the trap during a monkey round and tur pretty much garunteed to kill one with it. I got this in the same game that I got space race in.
PS @#8 yur so right they really do hate monkeys in this game there's also the one where you take something from the monkeys in shangri-la too.
