Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty: Ghosts Achievements

They look like ants

Destroy all enemy ground targets and kill no allies with the rods.  

Progress through the mission until you reach a control laptop where you take control of a remote drone that guides rod missiles. At this point you need to make sure to kill all the enemies (marked in red) and not kill any allies (marked in blue). Use 2-3 shots to take out the first group, and ensure that no enemies survive. Next, wait for the train to pass a little bit, and when the next group of enemies appears be careful so that the blast doesnt kill any of your troops near the tracks. After this group, more enemies will appear. Start with the group in the back and make your way around.

It can be very hard to tell if you killed one of your own allies. You can tell that you hit one if they say "Thompson, make sure your shots are on target!". At this point, restart the checkpoint immediately. Also restart if you missed an enemy.
The achievement will unlock when the camera goes back to the space station. If it doesn't, you have to restart the entire level.

Happy Thumbs Gaming

Mission 17: Loki

-This is an easy one to mess up and if you go to far you will have to start the whole level over again. Follow the video and you will get this one in no time.

If it bugs out on you, the only solution I can find is restarting the mission.

This is so hard to do, every time I try I think I've got all of them, but then the dust cloud clears and I see 1,2 or 3 enemies left and it won't let me fire anymore. I try to restart the checkpoint but it's gone too far and I'm forced to restart the mission. Really frustrating.

I've done this mission over 5 times now and i still cant get this Achievement unlocked. I'm certain i haven't hit any allies and destroyed all the enemies too.

You're able to do the old school "save-and-exit-resume-game-and-if-there-are-enemies-left-and-you're-out-of-ammo-restart-the-Xbox-and-resume-trick" if you get tired of restart the mission all over all the time...
If you hit allies the voice will tell you.

6th try I finally got it. :)

Good luck guys!

This is irritating me because the last group of enemies I can't shoot at for some reason.. I think it might be limited shots

I hate this achievement. I think I could play the mission in my sleep now, because I've it so many times trying to get it.

Hardest achievement in the game. A seriously messed up achievement. If everything worked it wouldn't be bad but ya know.

Let me also re-point out that if you save and quit after you get in the drone, you can dashboard after you get the checkpoint and still have enemies left over.

This removes the annoying part of the achievement(having to restart)

Thanks #8

achievement was actually rather easy for me did it on the first time if it helps watch the video posted here and dont aim for the big triangles aim to get everyone if you aim for just the massive marker you will end up missing a few targets

Got it 2 days ago.
What i did (last part):
Started with 3 rods on the left, then droped 2 on de middle, then 3 on the right, then went back to the middle and droped 1, then 1 more one the left and quickly 1 on the right again. That extra one i droped on the left killed the last enemy that survived the first attack.

Tip: if u dont get the ach (when u are back in the seat of the "satelite") and u got the last checkpoint, press the DASHBOARD button, hit y and okey (hard quit) en then start the game again, and resume from checkpoint. It start the game on the right checkpoint (just before you can start attacking).

Haha the first time I completed this mission I took out all enemies bar about 5 individuals on the ground so it can't be too hard to actually get... Now trying for it :)

Got this one first try (not including first campaign run. The achievment took a while to unlock for me, a few seconds after the checkpoint. It is pretty easy since you can shoot 3 missiles at a time, so just keep trying. It will pop soon.

This is the only achievement I have left out of all the missions but it just wont give it up. I have done it eight times now and tried it on all the various difficulties, but still nothing. I'm definitely not hitting friendlies and I've done it exactly as it's shown on Youtube. I've given up before I break something!

it took me a few tries but i got it. as long as when you place the targets down the enemies heavy armor are within the circle you should get it.

This achievement is definitely bugged. Have tried this over and over and never get the chance to fire wave 3 of rods. Such crap.

Had to try to get this achievement about 7 times before it decided to give it to me.

Okay first off F*$# this achievement. Second not sure why no one has figured this out yet. For those of us that could not fire the third set missiles on the final group of ground forces this is why:


If you DO NOT hit every single guy on the ground (ignore the air forces)you will NOT be able to shoot the final wave of missiles. Knowing this pay attention to the video and go for the same drop patterns. I almost had it a few times but I either missed on in the final group or I blew up friendlies out of frustration LOL.

I hope this helps, once I figured out why I couldn't fire the final 3rd wave of missiles I got it in a few tries. The only down part is if you miss any forces in the final group you have to restart the mission from

the beginning -_-

Damn max character amount.

Anyways, good luck and this achievement should be worth at least 50pts...

Just got the achievement myself. The restart tip from #15 works really well (make sure you Save & Quit at the appropriate checkpoint before retrying like that), especially since you can skip the game's boot-up where it says who made it. One tip I have: Make sure you wait until your view shifts back to first-person astronaut, because THAT'S when the achievement unlocks. Pretty sure I unnecessarily redid the mission at least once because the achievement didn't pop immediately and I retried.

There is a rod limit for this mission. You should only use three rods each for the first two parts and then barrage the last part. Remember, you don't have to get helicopters.

The dashboard trick that #15 listed didn't work for me whatsoever. Just makes me restart the mission. I don't think I'll be getting this achievement, it's fucking stupid, requires a hefty amount of luck (thought my problem was killing everyone, then when I finally did and didn't get any warning about friendly fire, I didn't get the achievement) and is way too time consuming. I'll just take my 925 or whatever I have.

Okay so after numerous tries, and realizing that my biggest problem was trying to rush and get every enemy... I found out something that may help some out.

When taking out the enemy troops aim for all the smaller X's first the bigger diamond targets are what signals the game to continue the level once you take out the diamond targets it moves on to the next section. If there are 3 diamonds and you take out 2 of them if wont move on to the next section until you clear out that last diamond target...

Credit goes to the fine people of Rooster Teeth... heres a video

got this first time I went for the achievement...really not that hard. last group I shot about 7 missiles to get all of the enemies...just be careful not to get the friendlies

Why has no one pointed out the enemies are not marked in red, even in the videos posted here they are yellow... Is this the colourblind mode? Would be worth pointing that fucking shit out. I saw yellow so didn't kill anything, (Red only, right) forces died, fail, looked for blue, nowt. Are you all colourblind? "Rorke file not found" thats red, the "targets are a yellow orange colour. This guide so far has been rushed to be "first". Stop rushing and get it right, you will "win" by being right not first.

Thursday, March 27, 2014 @ 06:36:53 PM

This is just stupid. I've missed all but 1 5 times in a row now but its always a different 1, trying to accommodate for all and follow the vid exact i miss 6 each time for the last group...

I might end up leaving this before i break a controller lol

Such a glitched bullshit achievement. Fed up with trying. It seems that enemies appear in areas after you've wiped it clean. Done with this shit.
