Blow up 3 tripwires with explosives

You can get this one done on mission 6, Hunting Party
You’ll reach a tripwire a few seconds into the mission, through the first archway you get to, you then want to press LEFT on the D-PAD to equip your grenade launcher
Fire one round just through the archway to blow the tripwire, restart the mission and repeat this process 2 more times to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Ashes to Ashes

Burn 4 enemies with a single molotov

You can easily get this trophy/achievement on mission 4, Proxy War
Once in the Russian military compound, with your objective to secure the armoury, head to the right side of the armoury and stay in 1 of the buildings, looking out onto the courtyard, you’ll hear over the radio “enemy reinforcements” this will prompt a jeep with 4 enemies inside, run outside and throw a Molotov with R1/RT at the jeep, if successful you’ll burn all 4 enemies. If you aren’t quick enough, reload from the last checkpoint and have another go. Once successful your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Hang Time

GS - 20

Kill 3 Enemies while you are on a ladder

You can get this one done on mission 10, The Wolf’s Den. After you get split from Farah you’ll go through a series of tunnels, eventually coming to a room that the enemy will set on fire, you’ll make your way up 3 ladders as part of the mission, at the top of each ladder is an enemy, kill them whilst still on the ladder. If you fail, simply reload from the last checkpoint and have another go. Once you’ve killed 3 enemies while on a ladder, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Long Way Down
Silver Image
GS - 30

Crash a helicopter by shooting the pilot

You can get this one in mission 4, Proxy War
Whilst storming the Russian military base, several choppers will appear. Once you have cleared the first armoury (a large red metal container) you will then regroup with your team and storm the next area.
Immediately after you enter this area an attack Chopper will come at you nice and low, fill the Cockpit up with lead, law of averages says you’ll hit the pilot. If you do fail, simply reload your last checkpoint and try again. Once you’ve successfully downed the Chopper, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Wild Fire
Gold Image
GS - 40

Take down a flying Helicopter with a molotov

You can get this one on mission 4, Proxy War.
Whilst proceeding through the Military base, heading towards the armoury, hug the right wall and you’ll see a very low hovering chopper. Throw a molotov with R1/RT above the actual chopper, your aim is to make the molotov arc back down so it hits the Chopper, if done on recruit difficulty, it will take 1 molotov to down the chopper.
Once successful your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Good Effect on Target
Silver Image
GS - 20

Kill an enemy with a direct hit from a smoke grenade

You can get this one on mission 6, Hunting Party
To get this trophy/achievement you will need to find an enemy in “last stand” fortunately you’re in a hospital with plenty of them. The simplest location is through a set of double doors on the ground floor, when you reach the main corridor go left and in front of you will be an enemy soldier on a hospital bed.
Throw a smoke grenade at his head with L1/LT killing them, if  you don’t get it right, simply reload you last checkpoint and try again.
Once successful your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Out of the Fire
Gold Image
GS - 150

Complete every single player mission on Veteran or Realism difficulty

This is a rough trophy/achievement, especially if you’re new to this franchise. Obviously, to make this one easier, play on Veteran rather than Realism as you will be able to take 2-3 shots in Veteran, whereas you get one-shotted by anything and everything in Realism
Proceed through each and every mission carefully, cautiously and under control. If you try being Rambo on this difficulty, you’ll be shredded in seconds.
What you need to aim for is those 2 magic words that appear on screen once you’ve progressed far enough forward, those 2 words being checkpoint reached
Here at griffins Gaming Guides, we have done a full video walk-through for all 14 story missions. If you need anything specific that hasn’t been detailed in the videos, catch me in the comments on the video and I’ll get to you as soon as I can, best of luck with this one. 

Tea Time

GS - 100

Complete the single player Campaign on any difficulty

Simply complete all 14 missions on any difficulty to unlock this one.
See Out Of The Fire for more information

Nothing but Net
Bronze Image
GS - 20

Neutralize the ‘Fog of War’ machine gun with a frag grenade

You can get this one in mission 1, Fog Of War. Proceed through the mission until your teammates open a set of blue doors, they will then be killed by the machine gun you need to take down. The M.G. is in the distance on the first floor with a brightly lit floodlight.
Take down all enemies around the staircase, EXCEPT the one on the M.G. itself, use R1/RT to throw a frag grenade at him and the M.G.
If you fail, simply restart from your last checkpoint and try again, the video below gives you a perfect visual of what’s required.
Once successful, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Trigger Discipline
Gold Image
GS - 50

Do not injure any civilians in ‘Picadilly’

Piccadilly is the second campaign mission and thankfully it’s a very short mission. The best way to get this trophy is to start the mission on recruit difficulty
Simply make your way through the mission and rather than kill the enemies with your gun use R3/RS to melee them and in the process this will never harm and civilian in this mission
Once the mission is over and you have not injured any civilians, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Play Dead
Silver Image
GS - 25

Kill all the enemies in the ‘Embedded’ field of dead bodies

You can get this one in mission 3, Embedded.
This is, of course, easiest on recruit difficulty. Once Farah has thrown her backpack bomb, you’ll run runaway into a field of dead bodies, your mission objective is to hide when the enemies appear, however, for this one you need to go loud and kill all the enemies. You can do this in any manner you wish, Once the last enemy is defeated your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Companion Block
Silver Image
GS - 40

Only use one cinder block and bring it to the end of ‘Embedded’

You can get this one in mission 3, Embedded.
This is a bit of a joke really, to get this trophy/achievement you need to carry a concrete block with you for damn near the entire mission. Shortly after the start of the mission you’ll need to pick up a cinder block, and keep it with you right until you reach the sewer at the end, any time you have a contact, simply press R2/RT to drop the block, drop the enemies, collect your block and carry on.
About halfway through the mission, Farah will climb up a ladder, you will be unable to follow her with the block so make your way around to the right through the building where you’ll meet back up with Farah
Once you’ve successfully got to the end of the mission, throw the block down the sewer at which point, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Wall Hax
Bronze Image
GS - 25

Save Alpha 3-2 from being downed

You can get this one in Mission 5, Clean House.
When you’re proceeding to the 2nd floor you have to use your NVG’s. When you’re on the stairs leading up, stop halfway and shoot through the door to your right, kill the tango in there thus saving Alpha 3-2, when successful your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Golden Path
Gold Image
GS - 50

Complete ‘Clean House’ without being hit using one bullet per threat

You can earn this one in mission 5, Clean House. This one can be a bit tricky, you need to kill every enemy in the mission without taking damage by either melee or bullet. Proceed very cautiously through the floors ensuring you only use 1 bullet or melee kill to defeat each enemy, so headshots are a must here.
You enter the ground floor kitchen, 3 enemies in here, one standing up, stick one in his head, the other 2 will scatter, but always to fixed locations, one behind the chair and the other moves to the left of the room
First floor has 3 enemies again, the first room you enter will have 1 tango, 1 hostage, kill them both, 1 headshot each or 1 headshot, 1 melee kill. The 3rd enemy is behind the door to the right, hug the wall, when the enemy comes rushing out, melee him or shoot him in the head.
Second floor has 3 enemies again, one hides behind the door after he kills Alpha 3-2. Chuck a flashbang in the room, melee the stunned enemy in the right side of the room, then hide before the third enemy comes in, wait for him to empty his clip then pop him whilst he’s reloading headshot/melee
Third floor has one enemy that hides under the bed line up your shot carefully and relieve him of having brains in his skull. Captain price then kills the tango on the fourth floor. If you get tagged/use more than 1 round to kill an enemy reload your last checkpoint and have another go
Once you have successfully cleared the house whilst not being hit and have dropped every enemy with 1 round each or a melee kill, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Circus Tour
Bronze Image
GS - 30

Kill at least one enemy while inside The Reading Place, Aurul Chic and both Subway undergrounds

You can get this one in mission 2, Piccadilly. To make this world’s easier, do it on recruit difficulty. From the mission start, wait for the van explosion then make your way down, your first subway is on the left, you’ll see 2 tango’s with hostages, drop them both.
Proceed through the mission to the Aurul Chic, drop at least 1 tango in this area (don’t let them run out the area)
Exit this building, make your way round to the left where you’ll find your second subway, make your way through to the other exit where a suicide bomber will appear, drop him quickly before he escapes.
The Reading Place is North of the Subway exit, get in there and drop at least 1 tango. Once you’ve dropped 4 in 4 your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Love from Above
Silver Image
GS - 30

Destroy 4 trucks with 4 drone strikes before they reach the end of their path in ‘The Embassy’

You can get this one in mission 7, The Embassy. Towards the end of the mission you will be given a laser tag to aid drone strikes, make your way onto the roof, kill the enemies on the scaffold to your left and the enemy will send trucks to attack your position.
Now with the laser pointer equipped, press R2/RT to fire a drone strike, make sure you aim slightly in front of the trucks themselves to allow a few seconds for the missile to get there.
Every time you destroy a truck you will get a checkpoint, so if you fail to hit one successfully simply restart from your last checkpoint and try again.
Once you have destroyed 4 trucks with drone strikes your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Pit Stop
Silver Image
GS - 40

Stop three APC’s with Hadir’s sniper rifle

You can get this one on mission 8, Highway Of Death. Once you’ve proceeded far enough through the mission you’ll be tasked with killing enemies at mortar positions, once you’ve acquired the Sniper Rifle, 3 APC’s will appear, use the Sniper Rifle to take them out, shoot at their wheels, 3 rounds will be sufficient to stop an APC.
Once all 3 have been stopped, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Driver's Ed
Silver Image
GS - 50

Shoot the driver of the suicide truck

You can get this one on mission 8, Highway Of Death. Once you’ve gone through far enough in the mission, you’ll be tasked with killing enemies at mortar positions, immediately after the final mortar position is down, you’ll have a suicide truck rush towards you. Equip your Sniper Rifle and shoot the bonnet twice, then stick one in the driver. If you fail, reload the checkpoint and have another go, once successful, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Two Birds
Silver Image
GS - 25

Kill both soldiers with one shot in ‘Hometown’

You can get this one in mission 9, Hometown. Towards the end of the mission, you’ll be escaping from the town and will come across a campsite style area with 2 enemies.
The simplest way of getting this trophy/achievement is to press UP on the D-PAD to call Hadir’s phone distracting the 2 Soldiers. Now run into the middle of the area and pick up the revolver. If you’re to slow to get it before being spotted, simply reload your last checkpoint and try again.
Aim down the sight, line up the 2 soldiers, fire one round aiming for head/neck shots. Providing you kill them both with 1 bullet your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Tunnel Rat
Silver Image
GS - 30

Complete ‘The Wolf’s Den’ tunnels using only the 1911

You can get this one in mission 10, The Wolf’s Den. Once you gain control of Alex, you will be in the tunnels. You can only use the 1911 pistol or melee attacks. DO NOT use any other weapon or offensive grenade as it will negate this trophy/achievement. Proceed slowly and cautiously through the mission as you have very limited ammo, sometimes it’s better to let the enemy kill you rather than you wasting to many rounds. Once you’ve made it through the tunnels and you’ve met up with Farah your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Dodged a Bullet
Silver Image
GS - 25

Never get hit by the sniper rifle while escaping captivity

You can get this one in mission 11, Captive. After you’ve escaped your prison cell and freed your fellow prisoners you will make your way towards a warehouse where your brother is located. On top of this warehouse is a Sniper, he does have a very strong telltale red guidance laser, making this one quite simple, move from cover to cover nice and slowly.
The Sniper will need a clear line of site on you to be able to shoot you, deny him this and you’ll have no worries here. If you do get shot by the Sniper, simply reload your last checkpoint and have another go. Once you’re in the warehouse, kill the Sniper to unlock your Trophy / Achievement

Got Something on Your Face
Silver Image
GS - 15

Spit on Barkov

You can get this one in mission 11, Captive. This is a very simple trophy/achievement that you can get near the start of the mission. Once you’re taken into an interrogation room with Barkov. Rather than answering his question, press R3/RS to spit in his face, your Trophy / Achievement will unlock shortly after.

Hot Swap
Silver Image
GS - 30

Get at least one kill with eight different weapons when completing ‘Old Comrades’

You can get this one on mission 12, Old Comrades. This is one of the more lengthy missions in Modern Warfare®. Fortunately there are a lot of different enemies carrying a large assortment of weaponry.
Make your way through the mission, every time you kill an enemy, check which weapon they’ve dropped. If it’s one you haven’t used in this mission, pick it up and get a kill with it.
I found at least a dozen different weapons in this mission .50GS, X16, 1911, MP7,  AK47, M19, Uzi, RPG7, FAL, P90, Model 680.
As long as you get 1 kill with 8 different weapons (grenades don’t count) your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

Lights Out
Bronze Image
GS - 30

Shut off the power to 4 buildings in ‘Going Dark’

You can get this one in mission 13, Going Dark. You have to shut the power off to 1 building as a mission objective, the other 3 are optional unless you want this trophy/achievement.
The 3 you’ll need are The Pool, The Clocktower & The Church. They’re very easy to find, make your way up to the junction box and shut down the power.
If you fail/die just restart and have another go. Once you’ve shut down the power to the fourth and final building your Trophy / Achievement will unlock

We Own the Night
Gold Image
GS - 50

Kill all enemies at the Church, Clocktower and Pool without anyone calling for backup

On paper this is by far one of the hardest trophies/achievements in the game, if you alert an enemy to our presence at all, it’s an instant fail. Thankfully, here at Griffins Gaming Guides we have a very nice workaround to make this very simple.
As soon as you get spotted, which is bound to happen every so often. Pause the game immediately and restart from your last checkpoint. It’s a very simple method, but one that can make an incredibly difficult, frustrating trophy/achievement infinitely more achievable.
See the video below for a lot more detail and visual representation of what you need to do. As soon as you are successful, your Trophy / Achievement will then unlock

Warheads on Foreheads
Silver Image
GS - 30

Reach Barkov’s lab entrance using only drone strikes

You can get this one on mission 14, Into The Furnace. I highly recommend you go for this one on recruit difficulty. For this one, you can ONLY use drone strikes to take out enemies, NO melee, NO grenades, NO firing a weapon at all! Press UP on the D-PAD to equip your laser pointer, then press L2/LT to aim and R2/RT to initiate a drone strike. Make your way very slowly and cautiously to the lab itself, if you die, it doesn’t matter, simply retry maybe hanging back further than you did previously.
Providing you’ve only used drone strikes to take out the enemy your Trophy / Achievement will unlock shortly after you reach the lab
