Veteran is not that hard for this game

Will Veteran be available from the start or do we have to complete the missions on a lower difficulty first? Does anybody know?

In the first two titles there was always the option from the beginning to choose veteran, so i'm assuming this will be too.

I doubt it's hard considering how IW have made MW2 easier than CoD4, BO was easier than WaW, so naturally MW3 should be easier or the same as MW2.

I just got it as soon as I should have, it's not glitched, sure you are playing on veteran? I noticed that there was 4 or 5 different difficulties for this game as opposed to I think the 3 I recall from the CoD4 (which was the last one I played)

I repeated Veteran mode for this alot, still AM not getting it. I just wish they added a status setting to know which missions you've completed on Veteran.

Make sure that you do the prologue on Veteran also. I did both missions and the achievement did not pop. So I started a new game, thinking that was the problem, and once I got through the prologue it came up

Just did the prologue and the achievement popped.
If it's not unlocking you can go to mission select and choose the prologue, it does do a difficulty check, then quit and carry on.

To make this one pop you have to watch the prologue on vet difficulty as well for some reason, so select New game (doesn't reset campaign progress) and set difficulty to Vet. Should pop as Black Tuesday loads assuming you've completed the two missions already. Took me a while to figure this out after repeating about 5 times. This will also pop Best of the Best i've you've finished the campain on vet

Hopefully people are still reading this thread.

Right... I played Vet (by selecting 'new game' and the achievements worked fine up until Mind the Gap till Iron lady, as I did not get the two achievements for these set of missions. I continued on and the achievements started working again for the rest of the game. So I then went back and did the missions from Mind the Gap to Iron Lady. The achievements popped up this time :S confusing I know...
I have all the mission achievements. ALL OF THEM. The one im missing is the main 100G achievement for completing the whole game on Vet...
And no its not Prologue im missing because I just ran that several times from the 'New Game' option and the 'Mission Select' option...

@ #28. I have nothing useful to add so I'll just say nice job on the word "SIMOLTANIOSLY".

That must be: Complete "Prolouge", "Black Tuesday" and "Hunter Killer" on Veteran difficulty.
