Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty: Ghosts Achievements

Throttled Escape

Escape using a relic.  

Relics are earned by passing level 30, they increase the difficulty, for example making the aliens do increased damage or allowing you to carry less cash. Each time you pass level 30 you can carry an additional relic. Up to five relics can be held at once, you will have to add only one relic to your loadout and call in the nuke and make it back to the chopper in time for the achievement. You could equip a relic to your loadout and play with three people who do not have a relic equipped, only you will unlock the achievement if you escape but this will make reaching the chopper easier for your team. 

  1. Take More Damage - Aliens do increased damaged with their attacks.
  2. Pistols Only - Weapon purchases are not allowed.
  3. Smaller Wallet - Earn and carry less cash.
  4. Mortal - No class selection available.
  5. Do Less Damage - Inflict less damage against the aliens.

It is recommend to choose the "Smaller Wallet" relic as it provides the smallest disadvantage. Once your relic is active, you will need to escape a round of extinction, and it is recommended that you do this with a total of 4 players, and take turns doing it for each other.

Also, it is important to note that you will keep all available loadout items after going back to level 1, so you won't have to level again in order to gain the better loadout options.

Relics are what you achieve once you have prestiged in extinction. You reach a max level of 30 then in resets you back to level one but you keep all your unlocked skills. Then you are given relics. Basically it makes the game harder and equipping a relic gives you more points. There are 5 relics that can be obtained.

Has there always been a difficulty option in Extinction, or was that added with the recent DLC? Either way, you cannot do this, or any achievement for that matter, on Casual, despite it not specifying in the achievement description. I've just tried to make sure, and I did not get any achievements on Casual.
