Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Achievements

The Price of War

Complete the single player campaign on Hardened or Veteran Difficulty.    

Complete the game on Veteran. This is EXTREMELY easy in comparison to Call Of Duty 4. You can get shot many times and still live but do NOT get cornered. Being cornered will mean your instant death. Take it slow and reload often. Pick up enemy weapons for ammunition and remember: Stealth missions aren't meant for you to be detected. If they find you, it will be a LOT harder. Try to flank your enemies and watch your back, team mates are horrible at protecting you. You need to stay in cover, but rememeber that wooden covers aren't the best because enemies can shoot right through it. Watch out for shotguns as the enemies has many of them and will ambush you. STAY IN COVER, this isn't Call Of Duty 5 with infinite grenades. The enemies only throw one or two grenades at most. Helicopters CAN BE KILLED WITH NORMAL GUNS! It only takes half or so of a LMG and a couple of clips of a normal gun.

I went into Veteran expecting a challenge...I was disappointed. Still, 90 straightforward gamerscore, I guess.

Best way to get: play on hardened. Although if you play on veteran you will get achievements for every 1, 2, or 3 missions played so, yea

At least this Veteran is not like COD:WaW, or may I say: CoD: Granades at War!!
Not as difficult as previous ones, but challenging in some areas... I believe it could be a little harder, but this works for me...

the reason IW made it so easy is because spec ops would be impossible otherwise :( (like 23 times mile high club)

This is more fun than challenging. I think all i had trouble with was defending the computer in makarov's house and then escaping(damn ghost can't aim if his manhood depended on it. He's like "I got u covered!" I pop out of cover. Boom! headshot. Fatality. lol).

world at war on vetran is fucking rediculous! you expect grendae spamming online but not in the fucking campaign! this is easier by far, all it takes is a steady aim and just a bit of patients :)

Easy veteran campaign compare to COD 4 and WaW. Black Ops is pretty easy to.

I found it easier than Cod 4 all you have to do is take you time and make a plan up everytime you die

I had almost no trouble with doing this campaign on Veteran.. i feel like if there was an achievement for only dying once throughout the entire campaign i would've gotten it

Comment #46 by xTwiistsx
Saturday, March 31, 2012 @ 04:11:23 PM

Was refreshing to play through this again after a few years. @49 I agree , I still need to do Hornet's Nest on Veteran aha Managed to find all the intel on MW3 whilst playing through on Veteran.. Not so with MW2
