Call of Duty: Ghosts Achievements

Survived Nightfall

Kill the Breeder for the first time in Nightfall.

The Nightfall map, similar to the original Point of Contact has various stages before you are able to complete it. The map will take the average group of 4 players approximately a full hour to complete and can be quite difficult if all players aren't communicating and working together. Achievements are awarded from progressing through the mission after Area 1, Area 2 and the final boss.

I recommend a team set-up that is somewhat similar to the following:

Each player will have a role, and communication is necessary. Don't be selfish, make sure you are sharing ammo, armour, boosters, items, sentries or whatever else you are able to provide for your team. Also, it is very important to share money at some points. To share money, aim at the ground, use to look down your sights, and hold for about 3-5 seconds to drop $1000 for one of your teammates to pick up. You can pause the game to see how much money each player has at any point. It is advised that you use the time in between hives and areas to scavenge for items, and prepare the team for the incoming enemies.

Next up, skill points. These are very important, and it is recommended that you complete as many challenges as possible in order to rank these things up as fast as possible. I recommend each player using skill points to rank up their own unique ability. Ammo, armour, random items and medic/tank class upgrades should be the first priority for the team. In Area 2 the team can focus on upgrading offensive abilities a little, such as vultures, sentries, team boosters, pistol, riot shields and engineer class upgrades. By Area 3, most players should have a fair amount of skill points and upgrades done. At this point it just comes down to whatever the team thinks is best, as long as they have the important stuff above covered.

Additional tips:

  • Riot Shields can be purchased, and placed on your back to protect you from behind.
  • Search the items in Area 1 AFTER each member of your team has a primary weapon. It increases the chance of better items.
  • Use time between drill periods to restock ammo/armour and share money.
  • Save locker keys for the last area. It's a better idea to use it late, and let a player with upgraded pistol carry two primary weapons.
  • FLARES! These things are like gold. Hold on to them for tough areas/enemies. Whenever anyone is down or in trouble, use a flare to distract all the enemies other than Rhinos. This will give the entire team a few seconds to breathe, restock, revive or purchase abilities.
  • Hypnoknife. Use this on scorpions/phantoms whenever possible. It's good to have a friendly alien running around on your team.
  • Traps. Starting in Area 2, traps become very important. The upgraded engineer should take control of traps whenever possible. In Area 2, there are 3-4 traps that really help. Also, in Area 3, there are two generators on the ground floor, near the middle of the map that will electrocute any enemies on the top of the map. These are crucial for success because they won't let scorpions land and spray your team.

Another "first time" achievement. People are gonna be pissed if this acts like another "Made It Out Alive" where it will only unlock on one console...

I take it back... IW FINALLY released a new update

Fixed issue where some achievements could not be earned when moving from current generation to next generation platforms."

So it may finally help us all get 100%

Is anyone else having issues updating their achievements checklist on this website for this game? I just tried checking off the boxes for this and 4 other DLC achievements I got in the last two days, clicked on save, it says "achievements updated" and takes me back to the list, and STILL says I do not have the achievements I just checked off. It's stuck at 43 of 61 instead of the 48 I got it to, and it's irking me.
