Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Achievements

The Best of the Best

Complete the campaign on Hardened or Veteran difficulty.     

You'll obtain this achievement once you've completed the final mission "Dust to Dust" on Veteran difficulty.

If you're a previous player of any of the Call of Duty games and their Veteran setting, then this shouldn't cause you to much trouble. The game plays very similar to MW2, which was the easiest of all the Call of Duty games. Take note that the game still has the same rules as the previous - for a cutscene or your AI members to do anything, you have to advance forward. If you just stand there, not moving forward, the enemy forces will just keep on spawning, so take your time but move up when you can.

Take note that you must also play the "Prologue" on Veteran difficulty to unlock the "The Big Apple" achievement. Not doing so will not unlock it after you complete the "Hunter Killer" mission.


  • Cover: Use this all the time. Stay prone if you can or crouch behind anything. These objects will be life savers.
  • Guns: Be careful what guns you use or pick up. Picking up or using the wrong guns in certain situations can cause much heartache.
  • Grenades: These can be life savers and will also help you advance. If you see a bunch of guys, cook a grenade, launch it into the group then quickly run forwards. Doing this will advance you and your team ad get that much needed checkpoint.
  • Flash/Stun: Same as above really. These are a man's best friend on Veteran. Using one at the right moment can really change the way things are going in a heated battle.
  • Drop-Shot: Learn to go prone while being confronted with the enemy AI. Doig so may give you that split second advantage over them.
  • Reload: I know it's silly, but remember to reload. Many of times I've forgotten and then come up face to face with someone and I've got 10 bullets in the clip.
  • Common Sense: Don't run in blind firing like Rambo. You'll only get shot down within a matter of seconds, and we don't want any broken controllers now.

@1 Agreed. MW2 was a cakewalk compared to MW1, hopefully they found a good balance between the games.

Yeah mw2 was too easy, but World at War was the hardest campaign ever. You get shot twice and you die, and they spam grenades like crazy.

Sunday, November 06, 2011 @ 09:16:58 AM

I'm just gonna complete this straight away on veteran..saves time because it will probably be as easy as MW2 veteran which i completed about 5 times!

Im gonna start on veteren. Once I get this Ill go for the misc. achievements, and then the intel achievements.

Def agree with TLC97, start on Veteran is the best way to play MW if your an expert on the game.

Did Veteran for my first playthrough.
Completed the entire game in just over 5 hour's.

Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 05:04:08 PM

I got to the level where you have to stop the nuclear missiles mid flight in MW on Veteran before I quit in rage. Multiple times. Finished it on Hardened though. MW2 was a joke. It required patience, nothing more. Hope this is like MW2 to be honest. I don't usually play games on higher difficulty because I find no joy in it. Always nice to have CoD Veteran achievements, though.

Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 07:57:48 PM

I got the game early and did this in a few hours no lie! Easier than mw2 in my opinion didn't struggle with one bit :)

Comment #25 by shadowbeast11
Monday, November 07, 2011 @ 08:09:52 PM

My big question is: Do the enemies respawn like in Black Ops or are they dead one uou kill them like in MW2?

That will make a huge difference.

Comment #26 by stockfish
Tuesday, November 08, 2011 @ 08:47:26 AM

The respawn... But MW3 isn't difficult at all... at least I think it's easier than Bo, not mentioning CoD4...

Tuesday, November 08, 2011 @ 10:57:26 AM

Lol! What the ____ are you shittin? They dont repsawn, im in 55.6% of the game
and they dont respawn, i know that...

But this game is f*cking easy, even on veteran! Easier then MW2, lol!

Tuesday, November 08, 2011 @ 02:07:56 PM

445 points in like 6 hours sounds nice to me. I really wish they would not make achievements for finding intel items. Those are a waste of time and super annoying.

Comment #30 by Zster007
Tuesday, November 08, 2011 @ 07:13:42 PM

cant wait to get all the points so easily, but sometimes it's nice to have a challenge

Comment #31 by raptor_256
Tuesday, November 08, 2011 @ 07:43:41 PM

i thought that enemies respawned indefinately unless you advanced??? so as to make you progress. i'd have liked to kill a certain amount of enemies in an area then have a clean run, but... oh well

Comment #32 by XxBlazeEmblemxX
Tuesday, November 08, 2011 @ 10:44:18 PM

Judging by how most people thought veteran was easy compared to past CoD games it sounds pretty easy which means easy achievements... Sweet looks like I'm playing on vet first time through

Comment #35 by bozie69
Wednesday, November 09, 2011 @ 08:23:55 AM

first time on did it on vet just under 12 hrs (running round to find intel grrr)any way point is if i can get it and do the game on vet anyone can coz i really suck at gaming hmm spelling too if anyone notices lol

Comment #36 by Bartleby Badger
Wednesday, November 09, 2011 @ 11:40:15 AM

I've played it through on veteran and found most of it quite easy - except for the last part of the last mission...
...I get the feeling this bit is going to take me longer than the whole of the rest of the game! :(

Comment #37 by LostLegend2015
Wednesday, November 09, 2011 @ 12:52:48 PM

There are a few difficult parts although that could have
been me playing while I was knackered. Making stupid mistakes.
But all in all its sort of mid range compared to the previous two
MW's no where near as hard as MW but a little harder than MW2.

All in all I found it quite fun and a challenge in certain areas.
But nothing too difficult.

Wednesday, November 09, 2011 @ 02:37:08 PM

By far the easiest MW game on veteran, I was hoping it was going to be like MW1 and provide a challenge but its easier than MW2 unfortunately.

Comment #40 by aranbailey
Wednesday, November 09, 2011 @ 02:41:53 PM

#36 I got stuck on the last part too, all you need to do is hide and the enemy seem to come to you,, dont worry about the timer and kill them off and it will checkpoint and you can advance, the timer is there to make you panic, if you forget about it it makes it mutch easier!

I played through in 7hrs... got stuck in a few spots. but suprisingly easy. play it on veteran guarantee you will agree!

Comment #45 by cjhurt73
Thursday, November 10, 2011 @ 09:18:06 AM

@#43 yes COD 2 very fn hard. i played it on veteran got to that chapter with the 5 houses you have to capture towards the end. i spent 6 hrs alone on that chapter before quiting and jus finishin last couple chapters on easy lol

Easy veteran.

Comment #47 by scottney88
Thursday, November 10, 2011 @ 02:58:07 PM

kinda hoping they dont adopt the 'endless enemies' like on black ops as some bits were just a bit annoying ... should be an easy 100g tho

Comment #48 by MattrickBT
Thursday, November 10, 2011 @ 09:49:39 PM

Cod 2 was easily the hardest of the Cod games on Veteran. Didn't get a chance to finish Cod4 on Veteren...escaping the safehouse on Heat was a bit as was No Fighting In The War Room but had to give the game back to a friend. Other than those two parts I didn't find it all that challenging, a few spots took some time but not too hard. The final mission on WaW was insane. Cod 2 though, with how many missions there was, not to mention lower sensitivity levels than what I'm used too, made that game a bitch and a half.

Six missions left to go on Veteren Difficulty. I always play through on Regular first to get a feel for the levels. Have also gotten every level specific achievement (ie This is My Boomstick) on veteren difficulty as well. I rule.

Comment #49 by MattrickBT
Thursday, November 10, 2011 @ 09:52:36 PM

And for respawning...keep hearing about how MW2, Black Ops and this game all have 'enemy respawns' but there isn't anything like that in this game and if there is, I sure haven't noticed. Don't know what the complaining is about. Maybe if some of you, I don't know, advanced while you played, you wouldn't see this issue. Hell sometimes on Veteran I've just stormed forward and taken advance point. The faster you advance, the faster they all die...isn't that the point of the hard difficulty? To be forced to advance?

Comment #50 by oneofmanykevins
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 12:05:53 AM

Yup, same as 42. beat are hardened. Didn't get achievement.

Comment #51 by KrayzWarRat
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 06:02:08 AM

This is so damn easy, MW was, MW2 was a complete piece of piss, and hell, WaW was only hard in like 4 points I can remember. Either way, a good campaign, even though it felt a little rushed towards the end.

Comment #52 by KrayzWarRat
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 06:05:36 AM

@43 Agreed, that was difficult, did it on my brothers account before I had my own, never had the heart to redo it.

Comment #53 by SamHolm3s14
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 06:29:24 AM

This was so easy the only part i struggled with is on dust to dust just after you take off your juggernaut suit!

Comment #54 by Darkside1523
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 08:32:08 AM

Is it just me or did the Achievement decision making take a vacation when coming up with achievements for this game?? I know a lot of people only play for the multi player but that shouldn't mean you just completely wuss out on making good achievements. EPIC FAIL!

Comment #55 by UN SUB 1001
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 10:27:16 AM

just finished the campaign on veteran, on to spec ops now. glad its over but enjoyed every second, every death, every plain in the arse part of it.

Comment #56 by Zepaw
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 03:23:29 PM

I played through easy first and coulnd't spot any parts that would be excessively difficult on veteran. Already 3 levels in on Veteran without much of a challenge. Good difficulty balance IMO. Hard but not something I will give up for sheer impossibility al la World at War.

Comment #57 by Enzo1103
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 03:52:02 PM

Got it on my first playthrough of campaign on Vet.

Just under 8 hours, in fact, including getting 23 bits of intel.

Easiest one yet, in my opinion. Go for it, if you're on the fence. :)

Comment #58 by LeafRaider
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 05:29:18 PM

Piss easy achievement, I did it in only 5 hours 57 minutes. Pissed off, little effort was put into the campaign here, recycled buildings and tying off loose ends EVERYWHERE. Only 6 hours to complete veteran with no challenge or satisfaction. Selling this shitty excuse of a game...

Comment #59 by MikeCheck
Friday, November 11, 2011 @ 05:43:25 PM

Cakewalk, 6 hours on veteran? A little disappointing, I was hoping it would be one of those epic "omfg, you have to play this game!" kind of campaign this time around, but still least there's tons of stuff to do on the multi-player :p

Comment #60 by beefspoon
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 01:01:58 AM

A more satisfying campaign than Gears 3. At least I could recognize the characters. Little too easy on Veteran though.

Wow this was easy. Now I have all three Modern Warfares and Black Ops completed on Veteran. To bad I can't do WaW. I've tried it multiple times and always want to throw the controller through the screen.

Comment #64 by Adam13yrdette
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 02:00:24 PM

I got this first play through in 8 hours and 3 minutes.. i was kind of disappointed they really didn't put alot of thought into this games campaign. but i guess no one really cares about anything but multiplayer anymore except me.

Comment #65 by metalbowser
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 02:01:31 PM

probably the best part

Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 02:02:01 PM

Ive beat every game call of duty on veteran sence Call of duty 4 MW.. this one was too easy.. beat it first play through in only 8 hours.. i was disappointed. they really didn't put too much time into this camapign but i guess all anyone cares about is mutiplayer anymore..

Comment #67 by Zepaw
Saturday, November 12, 2011 @ 11:49:02 PM

By far the easiest of the Veteran CoD's since CoD4 but the most fun IMO. I played on Easy my first through and way happy to do another full run through on Veteran right away. 10/10 game. Now I just need the buy all X items survival cheevos. :D

Comment #68 by Pudmoney
Sunday, November 13, 2011 @ 01:31:26 AM

I think they should remove the hardened part off of this achievement and make it just for completing it on veteran

spawning enemies.

Very easy game i thought i had it done in just over 9 1/2 hrs and some of that time was spent looking for intels i was dissapointed at how easy it was :( the early cods where the hardest cod 2 and cod 4 where about the hardest

Comment #77 by Angels N Skins
Monday, November 14, 2011 @ 01:59:44 PM

Not that hard. 'Dust to Dust' is the hardest but just be patient, ignore the timer and use grenades as much as possible.

Comment #83 by Muppet May Cry
Tuesday, November 15, 2011 @ 11:53:41 PM

It was really easy ( Compared to BO adn Mile High Club), most of the campaign is really easy with NO infinite Spawn points ;).

Lasty mission was the hardest. Once you get up the elevator, through a grenade ( with the G/Launcher) to EACH pillar. then kill the ones that are coming through an opening to the right, once you kill about 30enemies a checkpoint will happen and you can now kill the remaining 10(more less) and run to kill Makarov.

Hope it help anyone :)

Wednesday, November 16, 2011 @ 06:38:28 AM

If people are getting frustrated because their achievement didn't pop up on Hardened difficulty, stop being a wimp and just do it on veteran. It's not that bad. I think. (Not actually finished it yet)

Finished my first playthrough on veteran and it's really easy sure I died on every mission but if you play patiently and strategic this is an easy achievement. The last mission was surprisingly easy as well idk why most ppl had trouble with it. I recommend playing it first on vet

Comment #98 by Noraa 666
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 03:42:23 AM

campaign was pretty easy on veteran. The last part of the last level was a bitch but manageable. Part that pisses me off is if someone beats it on hard they get all the same as me on veteran?!? WTF!!!

Comment #99 by destructoBoi420
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 05:11:43 PM

i like to play on regular for my 1st playthrough so i can enjoy the story without dying every 5 seconds, i find when you play on veteran you notice all the flaws of the game, (like unkillable friendly AI, or grenade spamming enemy AI), im in ACT 3 on my 2nd playthrough (vet), and im not having too much trouble, im getting angrier more at this than MW2 so idk what you ppl are saying about it being easier than MW2.

Comment #100 by xMvP L3G3NDX
Tuesday, November 22, 2011 @ 06:59:17 PM

It is easier than MW2, I struggled to complete it on hardened. But all you have to do is stick to cover, pop up and kill one guy then back to cover. Also move up to your team-mates because they'll move up and kill a few emeries. But mostly you have to be patient and stick with cover.

for those of you who have finished the ccampaign on veteran and have all the intel and have 100.3% complete it is because one of the intels was not included i the count of intels so dont think u got a modded disk.

By far the easiest one to complete on Veteran..... The hardest was probably World at War.... The frustration I got out of that bloody campaign! Grrrrrrr!

I played through this on Hardened and I found it more annoying than anything. It wasn't hard but there were parts that I just didn't want to waste time or be patient with. Many times I was killed by such stupid things that I don't know if I want to sit through Veteran and get annoyed.

I'm sure I'll do it though...

I just finished this and I was really surprised at how easy it was to get through on Veteran. As long as you are patient and continue to push forward, it's pretty much cake. There were a few parts I got hung up on, but nothing major at all.

By far the easiest CoD Veteran that I can remember.

Loved the campaign, hate the multiplayer. I miss the black ops multiplayer, I was waaay better at that. And how come on my screen I'm hiding behind a wall, and in the kill cam I'm way out in the open? And I see they dumbed down the hip fire, I can't kill anyone.

easy to do, no grenade spams for me. easier then COD4 and MW2 (or i am alot better) if you are having trouble kill a few enemies then run forward to cover it will trigger a point for them to stop spawning. also the more you die the more check points you get. have fun took me 6hours

Didn't find this too bad (thanks partly to some of the tips on here). Did have a little bit of trouble with part of Return to Sender oddly enough (the part where you have to get to and stand on the back of a truck with a 50 cal). Thought Dust to Dust was going to be tricky but as a few have said let Yuri do the work, hang back at the start shooting from distance and you should be ok.

a friend of mine has the vet achievement but not the previous achievements for beating all the levels on veteran, so my question is: would it be possible to go all the way on easy and then just switch the difficulty to veteran for the final level?

PS I beat veteran on my first run while collecting intel. intel needs to go though, those achievements are just a huge waste of time..

Thursday, March 08, 2012 @ 04:55:03 AM

Completed it on Veteran no problem, the only hard bit was the last part of dust to dust and that was only because of the time limit, made me try to rush it. All the rest of the game was straight forward, take your time, take cover and find some good vantage points for shooting and you should beat this quite easily.

Comment #145 by Skeetacus
Thursday, March 08, 2012 @ 08:42:33 AM

Haha. Quicker playthrough on Veteran compared to the other CoD's. @#146, I agree, timed portion was rather aggravating. Got to the point I was forced to use a couch for cover... (Bad idea when rushed with shotguns. XD)

Worthless likely repeated tips:
1. Cover is your best friend.
2. Watch for the grenade spam. Happens frequently.
3. Don't be afraid to abuse the AI friendlies if necessary.
4. Keep distance if possible. Close range engagements are usually suicide.
5. If inexperienced (note I didn't say noob... hate that word.) You should probably play a regular run to get the ropes.

Happy hunting all!

Comment #146 by jennalous titch
Tuesday, March 13, 2012 @ 08:33:57 AM

This was quite annoying finishing it on veteran. the time limit was annoying but try your best to run through it. if you stay in the same place too long you are going to have less chance avoiding grenade spam. it's best to get good cover to.

Saturday, March 17, 2012 @ 02:53:22 PM

Do people really have a hard time doing this I did in about 30 lives in the whole games died by the technical twice died 5 times at beginning and RPGs part of scorched earth also maybe 5 times at the end I did overachiever first and it HELPED SO MUCH I tried doing it before and failed on first mission. But now I did it in 1 day but rember also of aim assist SO HELPFUL.

Comment #148 by Slaughter.
Sunday, March 18, 2012 @ 06:13:24 PM

In terms of challenge, what it doesn't do in the campaign it makes up for in spec. ops, which still isn't too difficult. My advice is stay in cover and be patient.

Comment #149 by Fronkey
Sunday, March 18, 2012 @ 07:16:18 PM

Knocked this off not too long ago - about 4 days of casual play with all the intel and campaign achievements. Modern Warfare was much, much harder.
Did everyone else who beat this get 100.3% complete?

Comment #150 by DarkDragonMaster
Tuesday, April 03, 2012 @ 01:11:43 AM

so far ive completed every CoD on vet except this one (working on it now for the last 6 hours and on the 3rd last mission) and CoD 3 (for those available on Xbox 360 starting at CoD2) and i really think that CoD 3 was the hardest cause as much as i try i cant even pass the 3rd mission on that one. so far id have to say this one is about as easy as Modern Warfare 2 which i found TBH CoD4 was easier than Modern Warfare 2 except for that stupid 1 shot 1 kill ending. i fluked no fighting in the war room tho thats why. so for those who keep argueing remember how bad and glitchy CoD 3 was cause by far that one was the hardest on vet due to stupid reasons.

the key is to keep moving forward, it's not like gears or war where you just have to get through the wave and keep going. They just keep spawning if you stand still.

Wasn't as hard as I imagined, there wasn't a stand out mission that I struggled on. The last mission gave me a few problems inside the building but after a few tries I did it.

Just make sure your always in cover and you should be fine.

Completed the campaign on Veteran in less than 6 hours. It is not hard if you get behind decent cover, pop up and snap shot a few, then duck back behind good cover. I died roughly around 10 times the whole campaign.

By Veteran difficulty standards, I thought MW3 was very easy, especially when compared to COD4, and both Black Ops and the grenade-fest that was World At War. I bought this game when it came out and had beaten it on Veteran Difficulty by early December.

Comment #180 by McDiesel92
Sunday, December 02, 2012 @ 11:01:07 PM

I love seeing all the comments saying WaW was terrible haha. I have only beaten MW2 and WaW on Veteran and WaW was 10 times harder. Beginning of Blowtorch & Corkscrew, Flak88s in Heart of the Reich, and the first big room in Downfall were the worst(last room wasn't bad as I got the super sniper rifle from the balcony in the Parliament room). In WaW if you didn't move up quick enough enemies kept popping up but at least you could see them on your map which you can't in the more technology advanced MW2 and MW3(in first Act).

Comment #181 by planetportal
Thursday, December 13, 2012 @ 03:07:19 PM

WaW veteran mode fuckin nightmare! tried for hours upon hours to get past the german trenches part! feels like enemies constantly respawning if u dont move up (which is prob the case)! its just that u get so fuckin cautious after constantly dying that being over cautious only adds to the problem!! gave up after dying bout 200 times fuck it :(

Finally got this today, and even skipped a few levels since i couldn't remember where my gameplay left off or what difficulty. I just selected the next set of levels on Veteran and starting playing from there; ended up with this achievement after completing the last mission. F-YEAH!!!!

I'd say 2nd easiest campaign on Veteran in the Call of Duty Series. I had just previously finished MW2 on Veteran the other day which is the easiest IMO.
