Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Achievements

Pit Boss

Run The Pit in 'S.S.D.D' and finish with a final time under 30 seconds.  

Finish the Pit in the first mission. I took a Scar with an MP-5. There are a total of 24 enemies and you have thirty seconds to kill them, without killing a civilian. Run up, kill the first three guys, then kill the next three, and then the next four. Enter the room, kill the three guys, go up, knife, kill the next three and jump. By now, you should be out of Scar ammo so switch to MP-5 (do this before jumping), kill the last enemies and DO NOT hit a civilian! It's really easy at this part since the bullets pass through the enemies. Finally, sprint to the finish. You get a time deduction for accuracy and no civilians hit, so just keep running the course until you get it.

Here's a video:

Just remember: He took his time, but he didn't miss a shot. You have to be accurate in order to have a time deduction, in his case, he took about 35 seconds, but because of his accuracy, his final time was 29 seconds.

My advice. Pick up the M9 and the USP .45 as the two weapons you will carry. You might be thinking "But there aren't enough rounds!" and while it may seem that way the key is to be accurate and make as many double-kill shots as you can. I got this achievement by scoring 160% accuracy giving me a -8 second boost on my time bringing me in at a cool 29.07 sec.

Just pick up the Desert Eagle on the table, and start the course with your assault rifle equipped. Aim down your sights at the first three targets, and pull the right trigger once, very lightly so you only fire off one shot. Aim for the head and you should knock down all 3 targets with only 3 bullets used. While doing this, make sure you keep moving as you do this.

Do the same here and take down the two targets while staying mobile. This next part is a little bit tricky, but make sure you don't hit the civilians, and keep moving towards the entrance to the house.

Keep your aim steady in here as to make sure you don't hit the two civilians, once you've dispatched the 3 terrorists in here, sprint up the stairs. Melee the target that appears at the top of the stairs, and make sure to ke

I personally used the Uzi and the USP. This got me a nice time of 29.7. The accuracy with these weapons are actually pretty good. Careful though because after you've shot the first 5 enemies on the nest lot the one on the bottom right sometimes pops up infront of a civilian and the Uzi shoots through the enemy hitting the civilian costing you time!

Monday, December 06, 2010 @ 07:18:47 PM

Two pistols is the only way to go. you just have to master the art of the snap-aiming. just keep moving and hit all the targets with one single shot. and MOVE! Reload only if you have to. switch your gun to keep firing. pick a pistol with a decent sized clip.

Friday, January 14, 2011 @ 02:38:05 AM

use weapons you like and remember to swap to your sidearm rather than reloading.
take your time(not too much tho) and try put 1 shot into every target. you will get time knocked off if you are accurate.
if you try to run the entire course you will end up missing targets or hitting civilians.

Can you only getting this on SSDD in the campaign or can you get it on spec ops too?

Comment #20 by Equinox80
Sunday, February 13, 2011 @ 05:16:41 PM

My advice is use the Desert Eagle and M9 for accuracy. When you go inside the bit with stairs shoot the target in front as you go in and then take the 2 now on your right with one shot.

Go up stairs, melee the one at the top with your knife then line the 2 targets to your left with one shot and the 2 to your right with one shot.

Jump down and shoot the remaining targets as quick as poss. The last 2 are often easy to line up for one shot but don't worry about that too much as you've probably done enough accuracy wise to knock enough time off to go under 30 secs.

Comment #21 by WerewolfTemplar
Monday, February 14, 2011 @ 04:51:36 PM

This is another dumbarsed achievement that is an incredible waste of time simply
because game developers don't know what they're doing anymore. If you're even
remotely at an angle to the targets instead of being a 20 or 30 % smaller target
like they should be they're more like 10% and bullets blaze right through the
damn things. I don't know how many times I lost this achievement simply because a hit didn't register on a target because I was at a very slight angle.

Comment #23 by Guizon Maltrov
Wednesday, February 23, 2011 @ 10:24:51 PM

Forget the Co-op or not awarded bonus for accuracy...
i was trying this forever in co-op
so i just tried to do on the actual mission SSDD
i did on my 2nd try...
ridiculously easy...
got a final time of 28.7...
using only pistols - M9 and 45.
its much fast to switch between 2 pistols than to switch between a rifle and a pistol
And another thing that also helps is to put the sensivity "High"
as you need to keep moving that could be handy...
hope it helps...

Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 06:51:17 AM

Took like 15 tries but I got it. I used the two pistols (Usp and 45). Just memorize where your targets are and get as many double kills as possible. 1 inside the room, two doubles upstairs, 3 on the way out. Also, keep moving.

so easy m9 and desert eagle(or usp), start off with the m9 try to get double kills, if you cant, just try for accuracy, use auto-aim (for the stupid, aim down sights near a target and it will lock-on for you, if your close enough) when you are on the stairs before you have to melee, reload (and switch back if you have to) toyour m9 clear the top area from left to right, for the all the other areas just kill any way you want, and when you hop down fell free to switch weapons. It was really eazy for me.

Do this during the game as opposed to special ops as u get bonuses for accuracy which remove crucial seconds.

Comment #32 by Peck8541
Thursday, April 07, 2011 @ 11:53:07 AM

Yes, all I did was use the M9 and the USP .45. Go forward and hit the first on the right and then the middle and then the far left just moving forward as you fire. Kill the next two from left to right but moving forward on the left side. Kill the first in the door of the house then the two on top and then the other two on bottom. Move through the door and switch weapons. Kill the middle man, then the right and then the left. Up the stair and knife, then move left to right while strafing to the right. Jump down and kill from right to left. Then the last two guys.

I killed every enemy with one double kill at the end and my accuracy was 106% and cleared the course with a 28.85.

After countless runs and some serious finger cramp.... 29.2 seconds.
My tips:
* Use pistols, as accuracy is essential, try to get 1 shot per target.
* For every target "move -> pop aim -> fire" DON'T "run -> stand -> fire A then B then C"
* First half of run (up to the building) use the USP, switch to M9 going into the building.
* Second half look to get some 2 for 1 shots in (at least 5 opportunities once you get past the stairs, but not do not always present themselves given the random generation of target patterns) You should always be able to get the very last 2 on a double though.

Make sure you do it on the actual campaign i thought you were able to do it on spec ops and got like 28 or 29 sec's and i didnt get the achiv and i was thinking wtf but i read it and figured that out only took me like two tries after beating it the other time, two pistols is the best way to do it.

Comment #42 by DanielRoyLivall
Wednesday, June 08, 2011 @ 02:05:05 PM

This is easy compared to CoD4. Melee the guy in the first doorway, the guy upstairs, the guy you NEED to melle and the guy at the very end (or kill him and the guy in front of him with 1 bullet). Knifing raises your accuracy because your getting more kills per bullets shot. I don't think this is possible if you kill a civvie regardless of final time.

hardest achievement

Comment #44 by YessImmaGirl
Monday, June 13, 2011 @ 08:10:11 AM

I personally used the usp and m9 and lighty tapped the LT button to quickly lock on to the targets. When your out of ammo don't reload as that takes time. Instead switch to your other gun (hopefully you haven't used it yet) and when your jumping off the ledge that's when you should reload then finish the course with that gun, still tapping LT to quickly lock onto targets and avoiding civilians. If you don't get under 30 the first time, keep trying and you should eventually :)

Comment #47 by Purple Wedge
Monday, June 27, 2011 @ 01:32:28 PM

best and easiest way of doing this is in co-op, have your friend take out certain harder targets as you press on clearing the path, we did it on 4th attempt

A Limousine: -8 second boost and you got 29 seconds... that isn't that good.
I got 26 seconds with a -4 second boost.
Use what ''A Limousine'' said... those guns are really good, but be aware to fire from the hip sometimes and stab aswell... its a toughen, but you'll get it eventually :D

Wednesday, August 24, 2011 @ 07:31:17 AM

I used the USP .45 and the M9, Started with the M9 equipped which should cover through the house and once u start up the stairs switched to the USP and when dropping off the ledge reloaded and cleaned out the rest of the guys. Make sure to try and line up the double shots and also be very careful to watch for civilians behind your enemies because the bullet will pass through. Ended with a 28.1 114% accuracy

Comment #54 by Mondrak
Monday, September 05, 2011 @ 10:39:43 AM

Friend of mine got the achievement, and so far I have got it down to 32.5 seconds.
Way to do it is to use two pistols. doesn't matter which ones, but it is quick
to load and quick to swap, plus you can run faster with pistols.

Comment #60 by NoNameBrand
Wednesday, December 28, 2011 @ 01:55:22 PM

You can use any weapon for this, but using that pistol you start off with, and picking up another pistol is best. You're going to have to run this quite a few times. See where the enemies spawn, practice trying to shoot them as quick as possible, and find where to reload. Also see if you can get Accuracy bonuses (try to shoot 2 targets with one shot). This will lower your final time. And remember, this has to be done on the first campaign mission.

Comment #61 by nazhitsreallyhard
Thursday, March 01, 2012 @ 02:33:35 AM

I see everyone saying the same thing over and over again "grab the 2 pistols". I mean DUH! Who doesn't know that?

The trick to getting a "really fast" time is to know the layout of the enemies and to "WALK AND SHOOT" that saves you time ;)

So go through the pit a few times then attempt to do it "super quick" by walking and shooting.

Note: Some parts of the pit you will have to stand and shoot but for the most part you can walk and shoot. You will get an insanely quick time if you follow my strategy FOLKS!

I'm the COD king! Whoop!

m9 and desert eagle pistols, the 120% accuracy bonus gave me -6 seconds, so i had a 35 second run, but that bonus put me in the clear; i kept to 1 shot kills the whole run, try to get a 1 shot that kills 2 which helps ton

i knocked in at 24 seconds. used the scar and usp 45. Take out the three first ones right to left. then run up close before taking out the next 2. then pop left to right starting with the guy on the bottom all 5. switch to pistol and take out the guy on the left and then 2 on right with 1 bullet if possible. Sprint upstairs and melee. shoot left to right and try to hit one of these shots as a 2 for 1 bullet. reload as you jump down the cliff. go left 1 right 2(1 bullet if possible) then left and try to get the last guys with 1 bullet. sprint to finish. finished at 28 with a 4 second accuracy bonus.

I havn't ran this mission in a year and got a final time of 28.45 Seconds. I found it easiest to use the mp5k and the .45 USP(Switch to the pistol when dropping down; but never reload).At the begining go to the right of the first three tangos.Then target the guys in the windows first, and REMEMBER when you are not shooting you are sprinting.
