We recommend doing the Veteran playthrough separate from the the 1st playthrough, this makes it easier to get all the other trophies in the game first. The veteran playthrough should take around 3 hours max

During this step you’ll earn the following trophies:

Gold Out of the Fire
40-platinum Tier 1


Tier 1
Unlock all Trophies

Unlock all other trophies in this list

Press [BOOM] to Defuse
Blow up 3 tripwires with explosives.

Mission 6: Hunting Party

In this mission are a lot of tripwires on the map that you can defuse, run into and die or let them explode. For this trophy we need to pick option 3 at 3 different tripwires. You can let them explode by throwing a grenade or using the launcher by pressing left .

  • The 1st one can be found right at the start of the level.
  • The second one can be found when on the bottom of the stairs when you need to take out the MGs.
  • The last one can be found right before getting Good Effect on Target Silver, there will be some tripwire in the middle of the main leadway while trying to go to the third floor.

When you are there, wait until the enemies have jumped off the chopper and throw a molotov with . if you throw it exectly right you can even get at Wild Fire Gold the same time. make sure that the explosion of the chopper doesnt kill the enemies otherwise it wont count.

Mission 10: Wolf’s Den

The second way to get this trophy is right at the end of this mission. Near the end you need to climb up while in a flaming tower. Rush towards the ladders and shoot the enemies around you.

Note: try not to kill the enemies while rushing, that way you can kill them when you are on the ladder

Out of the Fire Gold
Complete every single player mission on Veteran or Realism difficulty.

You will need to complete all 14 missions on Veteran difficulty to make it a bit easier. Realism makes the game a lot harder than it needs to be. I recommend taking it slow and use a lot of cover. The game gives you a lot of checkpoints along the way so you dont get a big setback everytime you die.

Tea Time upscale-245262160018212
Complete the single player Campaign on any difficulty.

You will need to complete all 14 missions on any difficulty. This trophy stacks with Out of the FireGold, but its recommended to complete the game in a low difficulty forst for 2 reasons. You can do all the other trophies easier in a lower difficulty and you can already get a feel for the game and know what to do when you do playthrough 2.

Nothing but Net
Neutralize the ‘Fog of War’ machine gun with a frag grenade.

mission 1: Fog of war.

Early into the mission when someone opens a door he gets shot by a machine gun, the game tells you to mount your gun onto the wall and peak to kill te machine gunner. Do not do that. Instead walk around the train, you need to watch out here because there are some enemies here. Walk up the stairs and throw a granade to the guy closest to you.

Video by Powerpyx.

Trigger Discipline Gold
Do not injure any civilians in ‘Piccadilly’.

Mission 2: Piccadilly

Durring this mission you can not hit any of the bystanders in the mission. You should take it slow and aim for the head for a 1 hit kill, when you enter the first building, use the sniper and hit them from a distance.

You can also this in recruit mode. Here you can get very close to the enemies and hit their legs from closeby, this way you reduce the bullets from missing the target.

The trophy unlocks after you sacrifice the bomb vest hostage. This mission should only take about 5 minutes max.

Play Dead upscale-245262160018212
Kill all the enemies in the ‘Embedded’ field of dead bodies.

Mission 3: Embedded

Close to the ending of the mission after you blow up the 2 helicopters, you will need to follow fahad. After she opens a gate you will see some dead bodies. If you are also going for Companion Block Silver, you need to drop the blok and get down (make sure you have picked up a sub machine gun earier in the mission) some of the enemies come out the door and you will need to shoot them all right away when you see them. You need to be quick because you dont have cover and they will shoot back.

Video by Powerpyx.

Companion Block upscale-245262160018212
Only use one cinder block and bring it to the end of ‘Embedded’.

Mission 3: Embedded

In the beginning of the mission you will need to follow Farah. You and her split up and you need to get past the guards, to get past the guards you will need to grab a cinder block from a worker on the left, that way the guards think you are a worker. You will need to take that SAME cinder block to the end of the level so make sure you dont pick up a different one later in the mission on acciedent, otherwise the tropy will not pop. Sometimes you do have to drop the block to kill some enemies with a gun, so dont worry about that one as long as you have that same cinder block the worker gave you when you use the ladder in the end.

In this mission you can also unlock Play Dead Silver.

Wall Hax
Save Alpha 3-2 from being downed.

Mission 5: Clean House

When you go up the stairs to the 2nd floor, there will be a door if you peak right, normally Alpha 3-2 will walk past that door and get shot, to get the trophy you need to stay on the stairs and shoot the door to shreds and kill to make sure you killed the enemy behind the door. There will also be a enemy on the right side in that room, try and peak to kill him. In that room there is also a enemy behind the door on the left side.

NOTE: If you are also going for Golden PathGoldin the same playthrough, you might need to restart the mission because there is a chance you get a checkpoint after clearing out that room.

Video by Powerpyx.

Golden Path Gold
Complete ‘Clean House’ without being hit using one bullet per threat.

Mission 5: Clean House

you need to clear all the floors and kill all enemies with only 1 bullet per enemy. You need to watch out that none of your teammates kill some enemies because then you have to restart the checkpoint. You can also go back to the checkpoint if you miss a enemy or if you get hit.

NOTE: If you are also going for Wall HaxBronze in the same playthrough, you might need to restart the mission because you will need to shoot a lot of bullets to make sure you get that one.

There is a specific way to do it most efficient that i found by Powerpyx in his video, i will link that in this guide and also a written version. Try to copy the video and you should be set.

  • Ground floor
    • Let your teammate tie up the lady that walks into the kitchen.
    • Go into the hallway, there is a room on the left, shoot the guy in the middle.
    • Wait for the woman to grab the gun and shoot her.
    • Then shoot the last guy in the back of the room on the right side.
  • First floor
    • Go to the 3th door where Captain Price is going.
    • Open the door slowly and shoot the hostage taker.
    • Wait until the hostage grabs a gun and shoot her when she has it.
    • Stay close to the wall and open the door on the far right in that room and wait until he shoots it.
    • Shoot him when he runs out of the door.
  • Second floor
    • Stay behind your team and let Alpha 3-2 get shot down through the door.
    • Aim into the hole in the wall and shoot the enemy.
    • Crouch into the room slowly and shoot the guy that charges at you from the left.
    • Walk slowly into the room while aiming right. There will be a guy there that you need to shoot very quickly. If it does not work you can throw in a flash grenade and then shoot him.
  • Third floor
    • Go to the lady and she will grab a baby. You will send her away with a team member so you dont need to shoot her.
    • On the other side of the room is a door. Open it slowly and the guy will run away and will take cover under the bed, shoot him before he shoots.
  • Fourth floor (attic)
    • There will be a lady pleading for het life. Wait untill Price says “Drop her”. Then you can shoot her as soon as possible before Price does.

If you make a mistake at any point you can always reload the checkpoint in the menu.

Mission 9: Hometown

Close to the end of this mission you will need to grab a gun while hiding in the flowers, to distract the guard you need to press to call Hadir. When they walk towards him, go to the gun really fast and make sure the 2 guards line up before you shoot. You play as a little girl in this mission so her aim can sway a little bit.

Note: if you fail you can always go the the last checkpoint again, that point will always be after picking up the gun

Try to hit as many headshots as possible to save ammo. Also dont try to use any grenades or flashbangs because they might risk not getting the trophy. The trophy will pop at the end of the mission after defusing the bomb.

Near the end of the level you wil come to a area with loads of spots to get cover. On top of a building there will be a sniper, you can see where he aims with his red marker. Try to avoid it and sometimes try to shoot it to make it go away. Make your way to that building by hopping from cover to cover while taking out all the enemies that come on your path. Near the end its smart to go to the right side and make your way to the car and then a wall. to the building. When you go inside the sniper will come out. Shoot him before he hits you. After the sniper is dead you will get the trophy.

Note: If you get hit by the sniper you can always use the last checkpoint option in the pause menu. This will not set you back that far because there are loads of saves mid battle.

Pick up enemy drops after you kill them. try to find a different gun every time you pick one up, there should be more then enough weapons if you start right away with doing it. At the start you can pick 1 out of 3 hand guns. It does not really matter what gun you pick, all the guns are also dropped by the enemies. In the end you can also grab a machine gun and a rocket launcher so that already gives you 3. with these 3 included you should already have to be able to get the 5 other guns at the end of the bar part of the mission.

The trophy will pop during a cut-scene where you need to interrogate someone

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

Mission 13: Going Dark

There is a power switch on all the 3 buildings you need to get to. they are not hard to find when you slowly go around the building. The first one is in the beginning of the mission. Listen to Price, he will tell you when you are close

Note: I recommend turning on subtitles so you can see what he says as well and that way you wont miss anything.

Video by Powerpyx.

We Own the Night Gold
Kill all enemies at the Church, Clocktower, and Pool without anyone calling for backup.

Mission 13: Going Dark

Try to stay hidden at all times and always use the night vision view. There does not seem to be a set patern where the enemies walk and it looks like its different every time you do the mission.

i really recommend following the route the video down below is taking as a guideline.

Here are some tips to do this:

  • Turn on the subtitles, Price will give you some intel on where enemies are and you can see the text when enemies talk nearby.
  • Do not rush things.
  • When you see 2 enemies try and kill them both as fast as possible after each other.
  • Use Last Checkpoint, you can go back to the last checkpoint if you made a mistake.
  • Turn off all the power sources, this is also needed for getting Lights Out Bronze.
  • When you think you are done, make sure to go around an extra time to make sure everything is dead in the area.
  • Do not use throwables, this will probably alert other enemies.
  • watch out for the patrol car. If you see the car hide behind something and drop down.
  • cutting the power draws some enemies to the power box, you can use that to kill a few enemies before getting into a building

Warheads on Foreheads upscale-245262160018212
Reach Barkov’s lab entrance using only drone strikes.

Mission 14: Into the Furnace

right away when you start this mission you should equip the drone strike laser pointer by pressing . It can sometimes take time to recharge the thing but you can stay hidden at a distance. DO NOT shoot a gun until you get to the lab up in the hill until you unlock the trophy.

  1. Thanks for amazing guide. Finally got this trophy after one week of trying.
    Some tips from my side may be it helps.
    -Dont reload weapon
    -Make sure every enemy has a gun in their hand before you shoot
    -The floor with the mom and baby on it, make sure you give the hand signal to secure them.
