Don't fret though, you can still apply this to any other mode that you're playing, yet this guide was intended for those who want to get through the Veteran mode. I won't waste time talking about achievements or where to find Death Cards,those have no relations to my guide. Call of Duty: World at War from here on out will be referenced as WAW. The main thing you need to know about Veteran is that it's a lot of excuse my language but bull shit. You will get angry and feel like a helpless little lamb about to be eaten. It's that hard of the game and the veteran mode is a lot harden then COD4 and COD3 with rivaling COD2. It's not as long as the other previous games campaigns but it makes up for it with it's ridiculous difficulties. So before you start you should ask your self if you're up to get angry. If you have valuable things in your room I would suggest moving them. You don't want to break them, I also suggest you play in a cool and comfortable room. The more relaxed you are the more focused you are and less irritation leads to fewer mistakes. Veteran mode isn't really much different in aspects of enemy locations from the other difficulties the main things that make Veteran mode so difficult are these few factors. - Infinite Spawn of enemies, they won't stop coming from one spot unless your have moved ahead. - Grenade Spam, this is the main thing that will kill you in this game. It's really frustrating since it forced you to constantly be on the move, which leads to the next part. - Less health, you will die in 1 to 2 shots. So being exposed or longer than 2 seconds will end with you dying. - Team mates being completely worthless, they will push you out in the open and never cover you. - Checkpoints are never around when you really need them and seem completely random. Most of the time you can feel when a checkpoint will happen, such as clearing a heavily swarmed area or getting to a new area. Though this is not always the case, and can lead to frustration when you spend 8 to 10 minutes clearing and make it to a new locations and get killed by some random enemy and have to do it all over again. So I hope your ready, this is really, really, really, hard. ============================ 0.1: Updates ============================ 11/23/08- Finished the guide, but still need to add links to the video. 11/23/08- Uploading to GameFaqs Comment- 11/23/08 ============================ A0: Disclaimer ============================ This FAQ is copyrighted to Ben Sam, and can and only be used and seen on Gamefaqs.com, you do not have permissions to do anything or use this for any profit, if you wish to use this for your website and are a professional reputable site, than you may ask permission. If I never heard of you, than you probably won't get permission, if you decide to use this anyway I will find you. So please just ask and don't rip this guide from this site. ============================ A1: Strategies ============================ Veteran mode is really hard, and even explaining it probably won't help much since there are tons of enemies that keep respawning, so finding the best way possible for people just starting is going to be hard. Most of the beginning levels you don't really need much help besides some text trying to guide you in the right direction, but near the end your going to need some visual aid to get through. Luckily I decided to torture myself so you can try and use my way to help you get through it. Yes I died, a lot and got extremely angry that I wanted to destroy everything around me, but I tried to keep my cool and figure out strategies to get through some of the hardest parts in the game. While the videos may show me as being super awesome, I usually cut out a good amount of death from my side. Only 2 levels did I spent more than an hour just trying to get past a certain part. These were Blowtorch and Corkscrew and Heart of the Reich. Now when I play them it's still very difficult but for Heart of the Reich when it comes to entering the Reichstag I have a solid plan that works 100% of the time, but this is after tons and tons of trial and error. Blowtorch and Corkscrew, there is no super concrete thing that will guarantee you 100% success, it's based on luck and how good you are at using cover. View the videos, and learn from me so you can do it, and than modify it to fit your needs. You will notice in most of the guide some of the instructions may seem vague or a little confusing, I use very brief statements such as . "Turn left here, than use the cover up to the right." this is all based on First person so just apply that, so when you turn left and look up to the right you will find cover. There a few tricks you need to know in order to be successful in Veteran. Bobbing- This is where you prone and crouch super fast so you can view the enemies around you. Prone- Not even a trick, but being in prone makes you harder to hit but it does make it harderto run from grenades. Throwing Grenades back- Take the enemies grenades and throw them back, you need to master this if you want to survive in the later parts. Use their grenades against them. Below is the list of Strategies for most of the levels, those not listed aren't to difficult to get through. ============================ A1.1: Videos ============================ Burn Em out (BEO)- http://gameroom.mlgpro.com/view/cmwR1ThWXNU.html Heart of the Reich (HOTR): http://gameroom.gamebattles.com/view/T4jYKYXMSFs.html Relentless (RLTS): http: //gameroom.mlgpro.com/view/42Lnrt9Isulp0Q.html Vendetta Sniper Duel (SNP): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBuPmqdmId8 Ring of Steel, Asylum section (ASYLM): http://gameroom.gamebattles.com/view/rpKYSJJjBjk.html Eviction (EVIC): http://gameroom.gamebattles.com/view/BVeZwWsulphTcM.html Blowtorch and Corkscrew (BTCS): http://gameroom.gamebattles.com/view/ciPMGKzrGuU.html Downfall (DFALL): http://gameroom.gamebattles.com/view/wYei8ky6N7g.html Breaking Point (BPNT): http://gameroom.gamebattles.com/view/h3Obv7pELA8.html ============================ Missions ============================ B1: Semper Fi Difficulty: 3/10 Strategy: No This level isn't really difficult, and is probably one of the easier missions to play through,that doesn't mean it doesn't have it's difficult parts. This level you should get through between 10 to 20 minutes and maybe 40 if your having difficulties. The level starts with you being interrogated, eventually some of your allies come to rescue you and than the level really begins. Once you have control, pick up the Type 100 and replace your pistol with M1 garand, make your way down the beach, you should see a walkway to your left and than a little hut to your right. You could rush to the left to the walkway since that is way you need to go, or head into the hut and pick the enemies off than make your way to the walkway. Once you are comfortable or can rush, make your way onto the bridge, keeping a good look in the distance at the enemies to try and kill them while you go up. Once you make it up, head on over past the beach back up the next walkway, an enemy will come and attack on of the soldiers, so kill him fast. If you do this, you will walk away with the 'Saving Private Ryan' achievement, Move on up to the boxes right near the edge of the hut, you should have a good view of the enemies on the next hut aiming at you, take them out and head to your left and go around the hut, an enemy will burst out of the hut there should be 2, take them out. Than go inside if you want to switch out your weapons for the Thompson or the Arisaka equipped with the bayonet. Stay inside here and slowly peak out the window, and snipe the Japanese enemy on the MG, once he is out, take out the enemies hiding right behind the rock and head outside while staying prone, and inch out ever so slightly and take out who you can while taking cover. Eventually your unit will move up, and you can head on through. I would use caution when following your men, sometimes enemies come from the MG hut or behind it, so be on your watch while using the sandbags as cover from the enemies that can appear from the front. Continue up into the forest, up some ways you will be attacked by Kamikaze soldiers, don't worry you should be able to kill them without much problem, once you finished them off continue until you reach the ridge. Here you will need to cover another platoon from Japanese fire, stay prone and you can move up to where there is a rock, you should have a good shot on the enemy on the tower and spotlight, take those out, then proceed down and take out the enemy on the MG. The rest is pretty simple, eliminate the rest of the forces which shouldn't be too much. If you find your getting spammed by grenades you could rush all the way down to the peach take out all the enemies in the mg nest, and use that as cover as you pick them off. Though I highly doubt you will need to take such a drastic measure. Once the enemies have all been killed off regroup with Roebuck and head up the river, you will see a lot of dead soldiers and a small little broken down hut, go in there and prone your self. You will be ambushed and blinded once you regain your vision you will have to take out a lot of enemies. This part is a little tough so don't get discouraged if you die a few times here. If you find doing it from the hut is hard, head all the way to the right, you should see a dead soldier here, use the rock for cover and if you still have the Arisaka, snipe off all the soldiers hiding behind the cans and the little cliff guarded by the logs, there are usually 2 enemies here. Clear the enemies in the area while using the can for cover or the first place you took cover and you shouldn't have too much problems. Once it's cleared head on down look right ahead and you should see a Japanese sniper on the small cliff appear, snipe him down and rush to cover, there will be more enemies coming in front of you, clear them out. Take cover by the boulder with the piece of roofing leaned up next to it and clear the enemy on the MG. once this is done you will me ordered to puncture the oil on a truck, and than they will send that truck right to the enemy blowing a lot of Japanese up and really destroying their compound.Here you will rush down with your team, you will notice the Japanese are in chaos, you need to pick them off while backing up Roebucks. Keep your eyes to the right as there are usually snipers ready to pick you off, take them out and I would suggest bringing out the type 100 and killing the rest of the enemies as you go, use cover as needed and rush to Roebucks who will open the door to where you have to plant charges. Pretty easy, plant them and rush out to the beach, you will get hit by what seems to be mortar fire and than assaulted by an enemy. Don't worry you won't get killed but instead saved by Roebucks and dragged to the boat and leave as the place blows up.End of level one, after this it turns into pure hell. -Summary- Survive Interrogation Beat through the huts Survive enemy ambushes Help save the platoon on the beach Survive a major ambush Take set a truck on fire Plant some charges Run to your boat and live ============================ B2: Little Resistance Difficulty: 4/10 Strategy: No ============================ Well the level starts out while your on a boat being attacked by mortars and MG crew, you can't do nothing for a bit until your boat gets hit. You will be saved by Sullivan and will be given the option to radio in some strikes from your naval forces. Use it on the enemies right ahead firing the mg on you. Once you take them out head on up with the rest of your teammates and get over the ledge. This section is a little hard but you will need to place a strike on the MG to the very far right, and than on the left. While fighting off soldiers, taking cover is also very difficult since enemies throw quite a few grenades, you should alternate between the very left cover and right cover. You can still pop up and see a few enemies on the ridge and advancing. You don't want them to get very close as it's what usually kills you. Once you call in the second strike for the left part, rush up on the left of the level going against the wall you should arrive to a wall the covers the front of you, there are quite a lot of enemies to the left once you go around. So wait until you have another strike to radio in, than run out and keep turning left until you see the ridge and lay it on there. You should be far enough that the strike won't hurt you, once the enemies have been killed one of your tanks will go by, head on up, when you reach the part where you can go left or right, throw a smoke to the right. Once it activates run to the left taking cover by your teammates you will also find a deployable type 99 here as well. Once you have another strike set it right ahead down the trench taking out as many enemies as possible. Head on down and eliminate any other remaining enemies, I crawled down as you reach the end you will notice an enemy to your right eliminate him and run to the left overlooking the tree in front of you. An enemy sniper is climbing up, so take him out and place a strike on the grass, you will probably kill some enemies also earning the 'Snake in the grass' achievement. Head up along the ridge taking out enemies as you see directly to your right you will see an entrance to a bunker, you will find the trench gun in here. I would suggest using it, but if your not comfortable with it you don't have to bother. Head to the truck where Roebucks is, than head on straight down into the next bunker, there are quite a few enemies see take caution and try to pick them off or use grenades from outside. Once your inside just go throw the tunnel picking off 1 to 2 enemies with the shotgun. You will end up right behind the enemy. Send a nice air strike right in front of the bunker right by the entrance. Eliminate any surviving enemies and then head right into the bunker, you will have to take out 2 Japanese tanks so climb up the ladder. This isn't difficult, but note the tank to the west is your own so don't waste your barrage of missiles on it. The first thing you should do is put a strike right down below you on all the enemies looking up at the MG. Once they're taken out you should see 2 tanks place the smoke on them, and they should get destroyed, clear out the rest of the enemies with the MG. Than the mission will come to a close with Sgt Sullivan dying from being stabbed, poor guy. This is the end of level two, a lot more difficult but still not entirely hard, you made it and you did well to get past this level. -Summary- Radio in fire on MG nests Storm the beach Radio in more fire on mg nests Clear Bunkers Take out enemy tanks. ============================ B3: Hard Landing Difficulty: 4/10 Strategy: No ============================ Your mission starts off with you deep in the swamp with your platoon, just follow them up around until you see a broken down aircraft. Move up until a scene takes place, here you want to head to the left where you see some bricks, take cover here and focus right by the plane and on the ridge. Eventually you will be ambushed and a bunch of enemies will appear here, take them out. Than kill the enemy standing on the plane, turn directly left and quite a bit down you should notice another enemy sniping pick him off and advance with your force through the river. You will get ambushed so rush on forward not paying attention to the right and take cover, kill the enemies that come from the left of you. Once you kill them continue with your team. You will than arrive by more bunkers which you need to storm right up and rush to the log. Use this as cover and kill the enemies to the far right of you hiding by their cover. You will notice to the left of you is a cannon, head over here for cover and you will have a good view of the enemies coming out to attack you. Throw a smoke(you don't really have too but just to stay safe) than crawl until you reach the barrier, slowly make your way around and eliminate all the enemies taking cover, and any other additional enemies. once inside the bunker, take extreme caution and kill the first enemy on the Mg, than head on around making sure your aiming as you will run into about 4 enemies. Kill them and continue until you see another enemy on the Mg. Kill him, run out to the left and take cover by the wall. You will notice your by a broken down building, you can either go this way or head to the right where you will see 2 trees separated by supplies. If you go through the broken building you have to take out 1 to 3 enemies while being pretty obvious to the enemies to the right. If you take cover by the trees, you will have some excellent cover and can pop up and take out enemies one by one. You will also notice that one of the bunker has 3 destructible barrels, take them out and pick off any other enemies in your way and rush down there. Head along the wall in prone until you get to the point where you need to lay suppressing fire on the bunker with the 2 MGs on it. You will see that one of your allies who has the flamethrower will get killed by fire. It is now up to you to take up the flamethrower and burn them out of the nest, so rush up pick it up, and lay down the fire inside the bunker. Once you cleared them out head to your left to get in the entrance while staying in cover to the very left, as your turn left around the corner flame up the enemy through the hole who will be waiting for you. Than continue burning up enemies around the corner. This is a pretty dangerous place so knowing that there is about 3 enemies in here will definitely help you, staying prone as you turn the corner is very helpful. Once they are eliminated head on outside. Rush down the battlefield until you see a flipped over truck on smoke, use this for cover as you will be ambushed by Kamikaze enemies. There is also a sniper in the tree so take him out, to your left of the truck will be another 2 or so snipers. Take them out, and head up the road. and rush down into the dip getting as close to the wall to the right of you as fast as possible There is a major assault coming from the building head, use the recently destroyed truck as cover and going into prone here is ideal. You will be instructed to follow roebucks to a supply truck where you will pick up a grenade launcher. Shoot it up at the mg, you will notice a little column so use that to detonate it fast, than toss a smoke to give you cover as you move to the right and take cover along the building. Switch to your flame thrower and rush into the smoke to the far right of the building, head inside and burn all the enemies. Use each column as cover as you proceed you will notice an enemy by the entrance into the room, and one behind some cover and a sniper right above him. Take them out and enter the room, head on up top and get off the building and follow your tanks to assault the airfield. Use the tanks as cover and head to the left as you continue you will notice a bunker head inside to grab the bazooka. You will than need to take out 3 type 97 tanks. This isn't very difficult and you won't have to leave the bunker much so take your time ad take out all the tanks. Once you destroy them head to the left and take cover, this part is somewhat difficult, you need to clear the trenches so switch to your flame thrower or the type 100. You will notice a some barrels ahead, rush there in prone and throw your smokes. Than drop into the trench, crawl along and burn your enemies, you will reach a point where your trench ends, and you need to cross over into the other trench, go into this trench. Once your in the trench rush to the truck to the very right of the building and take cover by the wall and crawl around you might see an enemy or two so burn them down. Then turn around the corner of the wall and follow your team. Head on up and burn the enemies by the wall, then cook a grenade into the far corner of the right. Once the enemy in the corner is killed hug the left of the wall as you head on up to the AA crews, as you reach the steps kill the enemy waiting for you. You should see his gun then rush ahead and down the slope to a dead end. This is for cover from the enemies on top of you by the AA gun. Burn the enemies in the seats of the AA, and head to the right where you should notice one of your teammates taking cover. Direct your attention to the building overlooking the AA turret your just took out, and eliminate the enemies on top with one good cooked grenade. Now head behind the AA turret and use it as cover and pick off the enemies operating the 2 AA turrets you have a good view of, once you killed them take control of it and take out the AA turret that is still operating and the enemies coming to your location. Once you have cleared all the AA turrets you will need to eliminate all the other enemies still alive. Take the left side and kill all the enemies in front of you taking cover by their supplies and the barrels, than run to the right you will notice a BAR. Pick that up and start annihilating the rest of the enemies while slowly moving up, but do not stay long in either corner as I have noticed they seem to cook a grenade and throw it at you. There'll be no indication just instant death, once you kill them. You now have to hold up here and defend against Japanese infantry, this is a really hard section but there is a real easy way to get through it. The number 1 thing you'll need is the Arisaka and the type 100 and NEVER get on the AA turrets. They are suicide you will die trying to use them. You just need to hold out for a bit, you can go up to the sides and pick off the enemies or try using the MG and blow up the gas canisters and trucks coming in. You won't spend much time trying to use them just going back and forth taking out enemies. You will get a checkpoint halfway through, from here on out it might get a little tough because now you have tanks firing on you. Most of their fire won't instantly kill you but if you try to run to far back or stay in one corner for to long they will lay a precise shot ending you. You need to try and survive their fire, and take out the enemies who will be climbing up to kill you. Eventually the tower in front of you will start having enemies taking control of the MG on it, take them out. Just continue running back and forth killing enemies. When you hear the victory music, go to one of your platoons and get cover by them, I noticed if your not by them you will get hit by a one hit kill shot from the cannon, and this is really annoying. So you just have to hold out and keep going side to side to avoid cannon fire. That is it for this level, it had it's moments but nothing to extremely difficult to get by, after this level you really need to make sure your ready for some hard times. That is all there is after this except for 2 levels. -Summary- Defend against enemy ambush Take out the MG infested bunkers Burn enemies Take out tanks Take out AA crew Survive from reinforcements from the enemies. ============================ B4: Vendetta Difficulty: 7/10 Strategy: Sniper duel Reference Code: SNP ============================ This is the first level that really shows how evil veteran mode is, you will start out in a fountain with a bunch of dead bodies, once you get control head forward there you will notice another soldier is also alive, this would be Reznov. He will fill you in about Amsel and that you will need to be the sniper. Since he is injured you will get his weapon, here he will tell you about taking out the body guards surrounding the building. You will have to wait until the airplanes go over your head, this is also the point where you can get the 'The professional' achievement for killing all the bodyguards and the dog without reloading. You can check youtube for the video on how to kill them. Dispose of the bodyguards with 2 to your far left 2 to the middle and 2 to the far right, the middle and the far right can be killed with 1 shot from rifle. The 2 to the left have to be killed with 1 shot each. Eventually a soldier will come out and kneels down, aim at his knee and fire it should also take out the dog too with 1 shot, if you don't get the timing down, wait until the dog comes at you and knife him. Reznov will take point so just follow him, you will head all the way to the right and jump into the window. Reznov will do some talking then lift the counter up. Once he does follow him to the truck, eventually you will take fire from a sniper so rush and jump into the building, than head up stairs. The next following bit will take you between 7-10 minutes all the way to about an hour, it is entirely based on your skill of aiming. You have to fight a sniper; the bad thing is if he sees you, you will be killed in 1 hit. There is though the small split second that you see him that you can move to cover to avoid the shot. This whole duel is really difficult since he can be on 3 levels. I found when he is on the fourth floor he is less difficult and you can scope the whole top section really easy. He also uses the Enemy behind the Gates tactic of putting his helmet up, you'll notice it as it goes up and down from the cover, do not fire at it. If you do, you will be stuck putting another bullet in the chamber and be shot instantly. Although after about 1 to 5 bobs of his helmet he will appear, which is an easy shot. He will run back and forth, so the main thing you will need to do is keep looking out for him while going back into cover constantly. When you see him run behind cover between 2 windows he only has 2 choices. To attack from said left window or the right window. Your best bet is getting cover so you can only see the right window, without the worry of getting shot from the left. When you see him behind cover wait a few seconds and than hold your breath, the A.I is evil that it knows you will probably hold your breath right when he takes covers and as soon as you go to exhale he will pop up and lay you out. The tactics are simple. Stay on the top floor and head to the right window, and just keep staffing between the window and cover while trying to get a glimpse of where he is located. It may take a bit but once you got it down it really gets simple. It's just a waiting game and narrowing the place where he can fire, it takes between 3-4 shots to end his life. I know, it's a long process and it really sucks to be killed when you only needed one more shot to kill him. You can check out the video of how I did it in the strategy section. Head on around and make a right, you'll notice a table you can pick up the Walter P38 for the 'The Gunslinger' achievement later in the level. Follow Reznov down the stairs and jump over the table. He will tell you to be quiet and get down so you don't alert the Germans outside. Sadly they find out and start shooting flames at you, this can be an easy part or a difficult part again it's based on your skill on aiming and your speed to get through it. Continue crawling on the floor and pay focus to the left window just a bit down you will see enemies going by, count them the third one take him out. Ignore the Nazi at the right window and get up and run around, as you turn the corner ready your rifle and kill the German in the left window and than move up and kill the German in the right window and continue up the stairs. You only have one shot to kill these guys, if you miss you'll probably burn to death. Follow Reznov up than jump outside the window where you will be greeted by some nice Germans, eventually some help arrives and they will kill them. You will be back on your feet head up the ladder and go into the building. Your job is to cover your comrades from enemy fire, so first thing take out the enemy on the mg in the building in front of you and the 2 enemies on the walkway on top of the building to the right. Once you do this just start picking off enemies, make your way around and you will notice there is the ptrs sniper rifle, it has around 26 shots you can take it if you want. Head on around the corner and you will notice enemies are coming from the end of the building as well as dogs. So kill them take cover and move up as fast as possible. This is a little tough especially with grenades and dogs(only 2 come out) but with the ptrs there isn't that much recoil so you can just swipe and snipe. I would not suggest going down the stairs to the left just stick to the right and take cover you should have enough to pick off a good majority. When you finally approach the next building there is one enemy just waiting to the right, which you can shoot right through the wall and kill him. Enter the building and go man the MG by the window, and kill Nazis on the roof of the building and take out the 2 Nazis on the MG on the 2 vehicles that come in. After awhile it will clear up and Reznov will go open the door so you can continue into the building. This room is really annoying there are about 5 enemies 1 on each side of the lower stair case and 2 in the next room over. When I enter I head to the right look over into the entrance way downstairs and pick off the enemy to the left of the entry. Then I move and kill the other 2 and wait until Reznov says he found a good place to snipe. Follow Reznov down stairs and down the hall into the room which is overlooking your teammates fighting the Germans. Here you will need to look to the building with the Nazi flag, in a moment a Amsel will be coming out with around 5 body guards. You can take out about 2 here, than look to the right and kill another one of the body guards in plain site. Keep a look to the left where there's a vehicle as one of their snipers usually will crouch here, kill him. All the snipers are one hit kill once you kill them, just try to snipe Amsel. Eventually a car will come to pick him up, kill the driver and head to the very far right window. When you see him running just kill him. Once he has been eliminated you will be hit with some artillery it seems and be knocked back get back up and run with Reznov, when you get close to see the room with stairs zoom in. Take out what Germans you can while moving, if you stay behind you will get killed by the collapsing building. Eventually if you make it through the Germans and to the top you will need to run and jump out the window into the river. That is it for this level, besides just the sniper duel the rest of the level is really not that hard, but if your not lucky you will be spending most of your time trying to beat the sniper duel. -Summary- Regroup with Reznov Assassinate all of Amsel Bodyguards Defeat one hell of a sniper Escape the flames from the Germans Provide cover for your comrades Eliminate Amsel and escape to safety ============================ B5: Their Land, Their Blood Difficulty: 5/10 Strategy: No ============================ The level starts out with you again being in a pretty bad situation being captured by some Germans. You will attempt to take the rifle next to you but will get a boot right in your face. Eventually Reznov will bust right in and save you, here you can pick up the rifle and if you head to the right of the room pick up the deployable FG42. Than proceed outside and follow your men. You will be given some Molotov cocktails which are your special grenade here on out for the Russian missions. Continue following your men down the road until you reach the small creek, eliminate any Germans not running and head forward. You will be given a choice to go left or right, I took the left and you will see some trenches and some Germans by barrels. Eliminate them and move up as fast as possible in the trench, you will get to a small break where the trench is a dead end to the left or right, take the right side and focus at the back near the trees there is usually a sniper waiting here. Kill him and the 2 or 3 Nazis up the trench with a grenade, rush to their spot and hide by the barrels taking out any other approaching Nazis. You will come to a huge defense line and see a small wall right there is a MG42, pick this up and head up the left side. If you head up here you will need to take out one Nazi in the very left corner. Head along the side of the wall for cover when you reach the area pick up some more ammo for the MG42. Take a look down and throw grenades and lay down some suppressing fire. Than head back down either crawling and crouching, some Nazis will start coming out of the trench so be ready, as you make your way into the trench make sure all your ammo is loaded. Head around to the left and you should see a bunker to your left 2 or so Nazis will come out from here and 2 more from the right, take them out. You can use the supplies to right as some cover, then peek out and slowly kill anymore who come out, which will be from the right where the MG is. Head up there with extreme caution and kill the 3 or 4 remaining Germans. You will see another bunker ahead of you where there is some FG42 ammo if you still kept the gun. Proceed out and head right down the trench pick off the 2 Germans in the front than continue with your teammates. You will now have to destroy 4 tanks, this isn't really difficult but if you take too much time you might get to many Germans spawned all over the place. So begin heading left until you see the golden bazooka, pick it up and destroy the tank that should be in plain view, wait a bit and you should start seeing another tank come from that side as well take it out. Now head to the right past the gate overlooking the house, you may have troubles seeing the tank because of all the grass and trees. Wait until you see it's cannon move than you should be able to locate the tank. Take it out, than run back past the farm house keeping your back to the wall and you should see a shed ahead of you, 3 Germans will run out, take them out and get into the shed to replenish any health from the 3 Germans sniping near the broken wall. Once you go back out eliminate the 2 crouching firing at your comrades. Head up along side and jump over the wall. You should see a few Germans coming from the house, kill them and head through the front of the house staying close to the front for cover. Peek in each window and kill any Germans still held up, jump in and go up stairs and go to the room to your right, look through the window and take out the last tank. Regroup with Reznov and take out the bazooka, keep a look an the big barn door with the red tank icon inside. Eventually the door will be blown open so shoot a rocket and duck down, than get back up and finish it off switching to your gun to eliminate any other Nazis around. Head into the yard and head outside and get on the tank to ride it. The tank will take you up a bit once you see some towers get off and use it as cover as these towers have enemies with bazookas who will fire and most likely blow your face off. Once you see all the cement barriers use them as cover and if you still have your bazooka aim at the towers to blow them up. To the left of you near the sandbags is some bazooka ammo. This section is really annoying but the best thing you can do is take the bazooka and blow up all the trucks you see. Then rush to them for cover I took the right path and used the sand bags as cover and popped up and destroyed the tower. I would suggest having the MP40 for this section, so you can take out enemies without too much trouble. Continue on the right you should see 2 more trucks blow them up and use them for cover, then peek out and take out any Germans in your path. Once you cleared them rush to the fence and prone, Reznov will tell you about a truck that has enemies in it. Take out the bazooka and go around the fence where there is a big opening and shoot it, then jump down and head back the tent for cover. I didn't worry about the towers since none of them had enemies with rockets, so this section gets a little tough head up around the tent and pick off the enemies down to the right side then rush around to the other tent. Peek around the barrels and you should see 2 or 3 enemies rushing around take them out, then go behind the tent through the left and kill the 2 Germans by the barrels. Head back to the right and go up against the wall and pick off the guy in the tower. Rush to the fence and you should get a checkpoint here, you will be told that the enemies are pulling back go over into the next area and show them there is no retreat. I would suggest blowing up the vehicle with the MG turret than going prone and head on through and swing to the right, you should see a structure adorned with Nazi flags go up there kill any enemies that you can and the level should end. The level has a few annoying moments but nothing that can't be managed, the first time on veteran I went through I had a lot of problems because I didn't take out the towers in the first part of the camp. Do so, you don't want more frustration than you already have. The best thing to do in this camp is really just keep to the right, you have perfect view of all the enemies that can lay any fire on you. The one problem is this is a point where there is a lot of grenade spam's. So be careful you don't want to get stuck with nowhere to move because there is a grenade in every direction. -Summary- Escape being killed Join the battle Take down the enemy's defense line Eliminate 5 tanks Storm the camp and take out the towers ============================ B6: Burn 'em out Difficulty: 8/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: BEO ============================ This level starts you out right in a trench with the objective to take out their mortar crew, pick up the Thompson to replace the garand or if your going to attempt the achievement for just using the flamethrower ignore it. This whole section is really difficult, so head to the wall that should keep you from getting hit from the mg if you look straight ahead you should see Japanese running for cover, kill them and destroy he barrel. Move up carefully and take out the enemy looking down above you from the trench, kill them and move and turn right. You will see a bridge with enemies running across kill them then throw a smoke into the corridor. When it's filled up take your flamethrower out and burst fire all the Japanese holding up their position here. Take out the enemies on the MG and turn right. There are now snipers in the tree and if you move forward there is only one place for cover and that is to the left, so head over there and check your back for any enemies coming from behind kill them, than move up to the barrels on to the right in a prone position. Peek out and take the 2 enemies out the tree, than take out your flame thrower and move up, a bunch of enemies will come out from the bunker. Burn them all down, when their done, move up slowly against the barrels and take out a gun. Turn to the right, you should see some boxes above the trench line, there are 2-3 Japanese enemies here with type 100 that will annihilate you. So pop up and kill them, when you finished, throw a smoke grenade, than head forward into the bunker with your flamethrower blowing down most of the enemies inside. As you reach the inside you can find BARs, Arisaka rifles, a death card, take what you need, than proceed out. As you exit you can go up and out the trench and kill the enemies in the next area from above, once you finished them, go back in the trench and throw a smoke grenade in the following area. Once there is smoke, rush in and start torching down the top edges of the trench and all the enemies popping out, keep doing this until you see a path, follow that around. As you come around to the right a bunch of enemies will come out at you, torch them down, then proceed down where they came from torching the window killing the enemy with the type 99. In here you can replenish your grenades, head back out with caution there are some very accurate enemies on the edge of the trench, so throw a grenade to blow up the barrels and throw a smoke to conceal your movement. When you got enough cover, run in hugging the left side burning all the enemies on the top ridge. Here is a really crazy part and is where I died a lot but when your about to move in the next area immediately turn left and torch the enemies in the bunker below. Once they're killed just move out and proceed down the next area. You will need to go down this tunnel, head down there prone and hugging the very right, as you appear you can see a big hole in the ceiling, throw a grenade and a smoke ahead of you, hopefully killing the guy with the type 99 waiting to lay you out. Than throw another smoke in the other room, once there is a lot of smoke proceed to burn everything in front of you, even if you don't see anything. You will hear the screams of many people dying, while doing this you have to dodge a bunch of grenade spam's, you can take cover by the barrels right to the left of the entry to the new room and torch down what ever enemies you can. When it's clear move slowly inside, you will notice a path leading outside easily prone and move and take out the enemies ahead of you taking cover by the supplies. Once you eliminated them move up and watch your back, there is an enemy right behind you. Taking him out is up to you but I didn't get a checkpoint when I went up here so you can move up around the left hugging the wall, you should see the mortar crew, burn them, This will end the mission. It was a tough mission, but you can check out how I did it with the video in the strategy section. -Summary- Eliminate Mortar crew ============================ B7: Relentless Difficulty: 8.9/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: RLTS ============================ This mission is really hard even from the beginning, even writing this guide might not be much help but luckily I made a video for this which you can see in the strategy section. First thing is your on a tank on your way through a beautiful day in Japan, when you get attacked by artillery, you need to get off your tank while your screen is still shaking from the attack. Head upwards to the broken down tree in front and take cover there, here you can see your being attacked from 2 sides. Across the river and from the left of the tree, you will need to go up the left side and flank them. Throw a smoke up on the left side of the river and one right down it, once they have been activated move up with the trench gun and kill the unsuspecting enemies, I stayed prone and crouched a few times. While clearing them out, get prone and take out the browning. Stay prone and move up killing all the Japanese that you can, move on up and you will be told to go man the AA turret, do not do this. You end up getting picked off in a matter of seconds, but do go to the very corner of it which will initiate a banzai attack, finish off these guys. Look down around the trench and finish off the 2 enemies attacking, then look to your left towards the bunker you should see a soldier right by the barrels pick him off and head right into the bunker. You can get some ammo and pick up the M1 garand, than proceed out. What you need to do is clear another artillery position, thing is it's very hard to get a good view and not get spammed with grenades. So make your way down the trench where you can pick up a scoped Springfield, than head back up and pick off some of the soldiers that you can view. Throw a smoke out in front of the trench, once it deploys, move up to the left you should have 2 barrels which will provide just enough cover. Sadly the enemy will start spamming grenades so just head to the right and prone in the other corner, while popping out to take out the enemies in the nest just in the left side of the map. Once you see your tanks start coming out start pushing forward and head down the left, there is quite a few places for cover here, but just stay prone most of the time, while trying to dodge grenades. As you approach you will see another structure with a few enemies here and snipers. If you keep heading left you can take cover by the bushes, as you step out from the side you have an excellent view of what ever enemies are left. Finish them off and you should get a checkpoint. Continue with your team up the path and jump over the log, your now about half way through the level, only problem is it gets a lot worse here on out. So I suggest having an Arisaka rifle for this part and hopefully some excellent reflexes. You need to rush to the end of the slope, and duck by the wall take a look straight to your left and take out the 2-4 Japanese soldiers waiting by the edge of the barrier, keep a watch on the top as you hug the right wall there are a bunch of Japanese soldiers up here, so you need to stay prone if your continuing down this side. You will see a flame tank appear, and start burning everything. Roebucks instructs you to stay behind the tank, don't do this you will be killed. You need to rush down from where the tank busted through and hug the left wall and make your way up. To the left is a structure with what seems to be never ending soldiers popping out, so you need to keep your eye out for them, ahead where most of your team is taking cover are fighting all the soldiers along the barrier and caves. You need to somehow avoid fire, grenades, and make your way to that cave. I wish there was some easy way to do this, but there isn't. You will spend most of your time alternating cover from the back left where the tank came through and the upper right where most your team is. I made it to the left and prone along side their structure, and picked off the enemies coming out the cave. You should see the tank, you can use it for cover from the right as you inch your way out, you will notice a soldier waiting along side it, waste him and dash to the left of the cave, there will probably be an enemy right behind you to your left, don't worry he will probably only get one shot off before your team finishes him and you get a checkpoint. This part is either hard or easy, and reading this will make it a lot easier, head in from the right cave entrance. As you move up you will see some enemies standing by another tunnel entrance. Kill them and crawl on around and focus your fire to the left, where there are 2 enemies keeping your other team pinned down. Once they're killed look ahead and you should see a bunch of supplies in the middle, make your way around it and kill another enemy at the tunnel entrance. Keep a look on your right and finish off any other enemies to your right using this as cover. When it is clear head up the tunnel to your left, you will come to a point where the tunnel has an opening to the right, take this route. When you turn left move up slowly and throw a grenade down into the artillery room then move up. As you approach you will hear a lot of gunfire but not see much, head up and look to your left and see if you can spot the muzzle flash from the enemy. Take him out and rush over here and take a look to your right, you will notice another enemy take him out. Move up and you should see the cannons and another soldier waiting around kill him and clear the rest of the room out. There shouldn't be any other soldiers after him so this won't take long. If you decide to take the left cave, your going to end up constantly fighting respawning enemies from the right, so if you head to the right you kind of eliminate their spawn point and it's a lot easier. Once you finish this level, take a break and pat yourself on the back since this is one of the 5 hardest levels you will face. -Summary- Survive artillery attack Flank the enemy and eliminate their artillery Move with your flame tank to the caves Clear the caves out of all enemies ============================ B8: Blood and Iron Difficulty: 3/10 Strategy: No ============================ This is a really easy level even on veteran, there is no real need to walk you through this. All you need to do is burn enemies and blow up other tanks. Strafe when needed and continue down the landscape. If you are having serious problems with this level, e-mail me and I'll work on this section. -Summary- Eliminate Bunkers and Towers Clear a path by destroying enemy tanks. ============================ B9: Ring of Steel Difficulty: 5/10 Strategy: Asylum section Reference Code: ASYLM ============================ This level is actually not too bad and shouldn't be too much of a problem. First thing you need to do is wait until your side is done firing rockets and charge with the rest of your squad. As you approach the fence climb over it and make your way left using the buildings as cover, eventually you will have a bunch of Nazis in the house windows just firing like crazy. You need to take a majority out until most of your team can move up, as you continue you will eventually hear about them fleeing, head into the left building than proceed upstairs. Now the second part is you need to eliminate all the MG gunners and the enemies with panzershreks in the windows. Head up stairs and make a right into the room make sure there aren't any German soldiers still left, than head out and you should have a pretty clear view of the soldiers with panzers and the mg firing. So you need to kill them and you will get a checkpoint. If you go into the room where your men are you can find a panzershreks lying around, pick it up and use it to take out the enemies in each window. Just prone, pop up, and fire through out this part. You can avoid pretty much most of the enemy fire, if you do get hit just stay low or go into the backroom where most of their fire won't get you. The main thing to do is get the enemies with the Panzershreks out of the windows, these guys are easy to spot because they're the ones that aren't firing the MG. They take forever to fire so either pick them off or use the panzer to clean them up. Once you killed them you will be ordered to get down from the building. Follow your team up into the next building heading upstairs. Head up and cross the platform into the next building. Head downstairs and into the alleyway, eventually your tank will burst through the wall and you will be forced to head in and take over the asylum. It's pretty hectic out here, to your right are enemy on the steps in front of the door, and a small barricade down the street with around 5 Germans. You can decide to pick them off then head left into the front of the asylum using the steps as cover. You will notice a small place for cover so rush over here, the whole front is littered with cover, so you shouldn't have too much problem when it comes to alternating cover from the grenade spamming Nazis. Just throw grenade at the enemies position and pick off the sniper in the building overlooking the street, this guy if you ignore him is usually the one to kill you with a WTF shot. Once you take him out head around the left of the wall of the asylum, if you look ahead you should see a MG on the top of the building. Take him out, once he has been killed it's really basic, eliminate what enemies you can see and rush up to the left. You will see some weird looking cover right by the steps to the asylum, you can use this as cover to kill any of the enemies in the corner to the right of you. Slowly move on out and they should be cleared with your new objective clearing the Asylum. Follow your team inside, and make your way upstairs you will notice Reznov telling you to pick up the shotgun on the staircase. I would highly advise not doing this at all. You can still pick it up though but any SMG,HMG, and even the bolt action rifles would be very good in here. This isn't to say that you couldn't use it, there is some close up action but this is veteran and you don't want to be that close to enemies. Head upstairs and you will be told that it's a little too quite, and they're right. Move on into the showers and you will be assaulted by a bunch of Nazis. I ran in right to the front where there are a bunch of sandbags and it's the part that splits the 2 rooms. I prone and crawled and made my way around the corner shooting at the few Germans that I could while retreating back into the cover. You can throw grenades/moltovs as well from this position. Now your going to be playing whack a mole except your the mole doing the whacking, pop up and down shooting down the Germans in the next room and checking your surroundings each time. You should clear a good few when your team wants you to move out. So head on with them, you will be instructed to man the MG and attack the Germans in the next room over. You could do this but I still managed to get killed I prone and sniped out the German on the top of the room. Then I stood up and took burst shots on the few enemies left. Going back into prone I moved from this location into the next room where you will find a panzershreks, you can use it to attack the enemies on the roof of the asylum, the one of the very left is carrying a panzer so I would take him out first. Most of the guys are pretty easy to take out from here, you can move up when they have all been killed on the roofs. Head up back into the building, and head right you will have an MG in the next room to your left so you have to take it out, you can just rush in here and hug the left side while prone than pop up and shoot whomever is on it. Around 3 to 4 guys will try to man it so pick them off, when you go to face inside the room there is one guy who hides behind the supplies, so be careful and take him out. From here, head into the next rook and head on up hugging the right side spraying down everyone in your path. Then head out and make a right eventually you will come into a room with quite a few Germans, but you will notice you can go back outside to the right, go outside and prone up to the window, there will be 2 Germans blind firing on your comrades, kill them. Once they have been eliminated jump right out of the building and continue with your tanks to eliminate the rest of the German forces. This is pretty much the end of the level, don't try to mount up on the tanks you will be eliminated. I would suggest sticking to the right and picking off all the enemies in the top parts of the buildings in front of you. There are about 2-3 guys up here, kill them you will also notice at the bottom of this building is a German with a panzershreks so kill him. While keeping cover take a look to the left you will notice a halftrack and some guys hiding behind it kill them. Than continue along the right side of the city, as you approach the building where the 3 guys were sniping from, you can go in here for cover if your hurt and head out to get a better look and you slowly make your way around the Russians will begin announcements to the Germans in the city, this concludes this mission. Not extremely tough, all you have to do is just keep moving up and taking out certain amount of Germans. A lot easier than the rest, the only problem is the Asylum section which I made a video tutorial for that which you can check out in the strategy section. -Summary- Advance with your squad Take out the enemies with MG and Panzershreks Clear the way to the Asylum Clean the Asylum Continue with the tanks to VICTORY! ============================ C1: Eviction Difficulty: 5/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: EVIC ============================ From the beginning just rush on out, there aren't any enemies anywhere, as you continue you will end up going into a room with a radio transmitter, end his life and the few guys behind him. You can use his little station as cover from any fire, throw a grenade into the right corner and pick off what ever enemies are left and the room will be cleared. Don't rush out into the next room, instead cook a grenade and run out and throw it to your left. Than slowly peak out, there might be 2 Germans left at the end of the hall taking cover where the stairs are to the right and the rubble to the left finish them off, than slowly make your way down as you approach the railing look down and finish off the German down below. Turn to corner by the stairs and eliminate another German here. Head down stairs and slowly make your way down, you will approach another room with a Nazi about to kill one of your guys, finish him off and another Nazi will appear kill him than rush into that room and prone your self. You need to lay down a bunch of fire on a lot of enemies in the next room, this might be hard since well your getting grenade spammed and you have a lot of enemies. I crawled out to the left and picked off some enemies using furniture as cover. Since I mostly could see their head they didn't last long with some spray and pray tactics, move over to the right and you should see an entrance to the outside, rush for it and kill the gunner. Take over the MG and eliminate the Germans below. Head back out and into the next room, head forward and turn right and drown down the hole in the floor and continue forward. A Nazi will see you and prepare to attack you, eliminate him. As you reach the corner you will have 3 guys not even paying attention to you. Kill the 2 out in the open and one in the room below the staircase. You can look on top of the staircase and be able to see another Nazi with a panzer you can either throw a grenade up there and pick him off. Now you need to rush into that little office that you killed the one Nazi to avoid the Mg42. Your teammates will recommend another way through, I decided to take the faster way and slowly inch my way out and pray for some very well aimed shots to the guy on the turret. Kill him and head forward, make a left and head down into the next room. Head all the way to the right of the room, you should have some windows which have excellent view of some Nazis, pop up and eliminate each one there should be about 3 to 4 of them. Once you killed them head to the left and make a right kill the 2 Germans on this side and advance up. When you get into the next room right before you can leave outside, look right and take out the 1 to 2 Germans all the way down than proceed outside. It's hectic, but your going to be spending most of your time in prone slowly moving up when you get a good view of the broken down tank to the right rush over there and stick to the side while avoiding enemy fire. Eventually all the Germans will get bombarded and you can advance to the subway entrance. Kill the Germans down below surrendering, because we don't believe in surrender and head on in. Here you have 2 choices you can proceed along the left side of the subway or the right side. I prefer to do the left side than the right side. The great thing is the enemies won't attack you from the other side. The bad thing is, it's still very hard. I prefer having a smg and a bolt action rifle for this part. As you go down the stairs don't rush right out down the platform, you will get mowed down by gunfire, instead peek out and take out the 2 Germans in the front than rush to the left side of the wall. Here on out your going to be prone and moving along side the wall killing everyone. To your left will be around 2 to 3 small offices go into them and take out all of the Germans inside than head back out on to the main path. You will eventually need to take out a MG. Kill the guy as you approach another office go inside, this time you should have a good view of a train with a sniper in it. Kill him and head out eliminating the rest of his buddies. Your going to do this for a bit until you reach the end where all of the German soldiers are held up, you need to basically survive for a few minutes until the door opens since all of the Nazis are going to flood you all out. You can hang to the left of the wall and stay crouched while peeking out to take out the enemies behind the rubble. This isn't very difficult you can't prone which is annoying but if you stick to the left and just lay down suppressing fire eventually they will open the door and the level will end. A mildly difficult level but not extremely hard, infuriately this is the last of the 'easy' veteran missions after this all hell will be brought to you. -Summary- Eliminate Radio Transmissions Clear out all the enemies Clean the streets up Clear the subway up Get flushed out ============================ C2: Black Cats Difficulty: 2/10 Strategy: No This is just, way too easy. You shouldn't have a problem take out the boats and planes trying to ram into you. Other than that there isn't much to say about this level except this is actually really the last easy level and it's pretty fun. ============================ C3: Blowtorch & Corkscrew Difficulty: 10/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: BTCS ============================ This level is extremely hard, all throughout this mission is just a lot and I mean a lot of grenade spamming, if your reading to find some easy way through this, there isn't one single simple way to do this. You are going to need luck and some very well place checkpoints that the game give you. You should also clear your room of anything that you could possibly break from throwing the controller. You basically start out with the flame thrower and have to head up this ridge to take out these bunkers, head up in a bit Roebucks will ask you to burn the grass down where a bunch of enemies will ambush you. Kill them and head to the right next to the stone, take out your browning and pick off the sniper right on the other side, than focus to the upper left and take out that sniper. Throw a smoke in front of you and a smoke grenade up the ridge, than rush it and pray to the lord you can get a checkpoint. If you made it up here chances our you got a checkpoint but it's still ridiculously hard there are tons of enemies in front and behind you and your teammates want you to throw smoke to cloud the MG so you can get in the bunker. Sounds pretty simple but your surrounded and with the inability to see your enemies, you have people all behind you sniping. So you can burn the people behind you and try to move your way on up along the right side. Once you reach a stone where most of your teammates are, throw some smoke alongside the fence, and a further one near the bunker, while your trying to damn best to avoid being banzai attacked and grenade killed. Work your way up and throw what ever grenades you have and just rush forward, if everything goes well you should go right into their base drop down and get a checkpoint. Here on out really you need to go into a tunnel, throw some grenades destroy some bunkers and head into a fortress, not super detailed because your better off just watching my video in the strategy section. This as a whole is really, really difficult but even explaining isn't really going to change anything. going into the cave, head around the right you should see a waterfall through a grenade to the right than rush to the other side using the rock as cover. You need to destroy 3 bunkers and it just so happens that they're pretty well defending the first one your going to take is the one on the far right of you compass. Just leave the area and head to the right, while torching numerous enemies and hoping that god has been kind enough to smile on you. Too bad that isn't going to happen, your going to get grenade spammed just try as hard as possible to get to the bunker and toss a satchel in the bunker to detonate it. Luck would have it that there is a checkpoint after each bunkers destruction, from here take out a gun and take out the soldier to the right of the bunker as you proceed to your next destination, use this wall as cover and peak out. There are a ton of Japanese soldiers out here some of them Banzai warriors as well. You can just head forward using the edge of the terrain for cover than rush up to the wall, if you manage throw a satchel and destroy the bunker. The last of the bunkers is actually pretty easy, move on forward up and just torch everything, there is very little cover to the side like just enough to cover you in prone us it to avoid being killed by the guys on MG, once you finished them move up slowly and head to the left into you get stuck by the barb wire, if you turn and look to your right you will be able to throw a satchel into the bunker and detonate it. Keep in mind there is one guy on a MG outside the bunker, finish him off first to make this easier. Your next job is to regroup with Roebucks and continue with your tanks up the hill, as you start to get to the top your tanks will be hit with artillery fire. This is pretty troublesome but the main thing is there is a huge fortress with MG everywhere and everyone aiming just at you. So you are given a choice of 2 path to take to flank and get inside the bunker. I am going to suggest the right side, I found it the easiest of the 2, the left side has a lot banzai soldiers and it's just a big hassle. The right side isn't that much easier but I find it more manageable, start by heading up the right side of the hill you should see a small piece of barricade, prone and use this to look up at the fortress you won't be able to get many good shots in, unless your crouched. If you crouch focus on the very right MG and take the guy out there are about 3-4 respawns than they stop, this is also for the next MG that you have to go up against. Start moving down into the dip and get as far up to the left of the wall, make your way up the path and you will notice 3 enemies one directly in front of you using the boulder as cover, one to the left using supplies as cover and one directly to your right using another boulder as cover, eliminate them. You will notice a very small cave, on top of this cave is the spawn point for infinite enemies so get to this as fast as possible so you don't keep getting stuck in the same boring routine. While your going into the small cave you will have to kill 2 more enemies on the other side, and have to deal with a kamikaze soldier. Kill them and move up to the right and down the hill, again you will have to fight more Kamikaze soldiers, finish them off and go to the boulder that your teammates are using for cover, Directly ahead is the bunkers entrance but it's surrounded by enemy snipers so your going to spend some time running in what seems to be a triangle from boulder to boulder trying not to be killed by grenades. There are 2 snipers laying on the edge of the entrance, finish them off, and any soldiers on foot in front of you than continue around crawling. As you approach the entrance top, you have to kill a soldier who is on the opposite end, kill him and enter the bunker. Going into the bunker you need to head to the right, you will see some Japanese soldiers run out kill them, as you approach to make a left kill the soldier waiting to your right, than continue in eliminating any opposite. You need to go up stairs about 2 time, but the soldiers aren't anything difficult to kill. As you approach the last level, when you go up the ladder burn everyone to the right since there are 2 guys in this room waiting to kill you. Once you kill them align your self to the left and move slowly a few enemies will run in so all you have to do is burn them, as you start to see the room dash for the right to the boxes. Kill the soldier over here and take a look to your upper right, throw a grenade in the entrance way to kill the LMG users. Rush in here to end the spawning, do not go right and head up the ladder you will be killed. You can go outside and make your way up to kill some soldiers but most of your men should have killed them. If they have not and you died, go back into the room and go up the ladder HALF way. Than head back down, this will initiate the script to send your teammates who will do the rest of work and will finish out the level for you. If you beat this level you should take a break, and congratulate yourself you beat a level that probably 97% of the community won't be able to do, you had a lot of luck on your side. Especially patience since it takes roughly 2-3 hours to get through this level and maybe an hour or 2 if your really lucky or good. -Summary- Burn Stuff Destroy Bunkers Destroy Fortress WIN! ============================ C4: Breaking Point Difficulty: 8/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: BPNT ============================ You will notice at the start of the level you don't have any ammo and need to go get supplies, as you approach the supplies you can pick up the browning and get some ammo, but you will be assaulted by enemy forces so juts head to the right where you should see a very small barricade, hold up here and point your attention to the left you will have 2-3 banzai soldiers come around, kill them than take out the enemies in the trees and up some ways from your position. You will be assaulted with mortar fire and will be forced to move take cover and move up around the left side of the trench, then prone your self against the wall to the right. You should see a small area of cover so get to here for a checkpoint. While doing this you will be trying to avoid being killed by the enemies surrounding you, so just be careful and rush your way through while take small moments of cover, if you stay in one place for too long you will be killed by mortar fire, I know what a devilish design. Here you will need to drop down into the bunker and take out some enemies, not really difficult, your just going to crawl on in until you see the enemies gathered around the table talking, cook a grenade and finish any survivors. Than proceed out, go back up the ladder and prepare for quite the fight. You need to get up this hill and into their base, but there are spider traps everywhere and enemies firing down upon you, you can use the wall as cover but try to get all the way down to the other end. As you do this 2 to 3 enemies will appear out of their spider traps, kill them and head to the end you should see Roebucks already has climbed up. Get up this end and hide by the rock for cover, here through a smoke at the left of the steps and one right in front of it, once the smoke has started to activate rush on up the stairs killing the enemies that will hinder your way. I would suggest having the type100 from here on out. As you get out of the entry way head left and duck behind it, here you will have to fend off against snipers and such, this isn't too difficult just throw a grenade and you should notice a building to the right this is your next destination. Clear the enemies while crawling up, once you see a moment to rush do it. Don't go directly in the building but to the right, as you head up a little further you can see the enemy sniper in the tower. Take him out and look at the basin of the building, in the windows you will see more enemy snipers. Now you can go into the building that your using for cover and picked up a scope Arisaka rifle, and pick them off. Than dash out in the small corner to the right of the tower. Proceed to rush in down the hall there might be 2 or 3 enemies left, you have the advantage so kill them and head down, you will notice a room at the end of the hall. Don't go in it, it will activate 2 scripted banzai soldiers and you won't see them at all they just magically appear, so ignore them and head left and up the steps to the castle. Now you have to take out 4 mortar pits without a checkpoint, this is pretty fun you might die but you can prime mortars and throw them, the only problem is you can't throw them too far and if you a miscalculation you will end up dead. So you need to head up around and you approach the area right in front of you will be a box with mortars on it, pick it up and look up and throw it at the crew. Pick up another one and head right and take out the other crew. You can also throw the mortars at the MG nests which will destroy them permanently. As you take out the second one and approach the steps to the next area you should get a checkpoint, but don't rush out. To the left of you is a mg nest and some enemies so pick them off and head on down to the right near your teammates. They will be right by some mortars so pick it up and take out the second mg nest and the mortar crew right next to you. Head to their pit pick it up and throw it at the next crew than move up into the building. As you approach the steps you will be assaulted by banzai soldiers, end their lives and proceed in. This section is the hard part of the level, because it's a lot of grenades and trying to move up is really difficult. Yet as you first get in head to the left outside, using the statues as cover you will notice enemies up by the fountain pick them off and move up fast upon the left side. If you still have smoke grenades, this is really easy if not your going to have a lot of problems, but if you do have a smoke throw it at the steps of the building. Duck for cover and wait until it starts to disperse, now you need to rush up here, when at the stop prone and back your self up against the sandbags and scout for soldiers around you, than get up and look left you should see a sniper still attacking pick him off and enter the building. You will be asked to use the MG to kill some of the enemies outside, get on blow up the destructible barrel and focus on the door for remaining soldiers to come out. Get off the mg and head into the interior there are a few soldiers still defending the place but nothing difficult to deal with kill them, and enter the tunnels. Once inside proceed with caution until you get to the open area, you should see one of their soldiers run out from the left, kill him and the soldiers standing in the middle. Crawl around the left and pick off the soldiers hanging by the broken ceiling. Once you have killed them move around taking out the soldiers in the entry way and throw a grenade to your right so you can kill any spawning enemies coming from your direct right. Enter the entry way, kill about 3 of 4 soldiers in the room and head right, you should see some supplies and a staircase, kill the soldiers on the staircase first and throw a grenade behind the supplies. This should finish off most of the soldiers so you can go up the stairs and into the courtyard of the castle. Here you will need to make a decision, make it and then get into the prone stance, pick off enemies that have you pinned down while running for cover to the sandbags scattered around. Eventually you will be able to call in air strikes on the castle, place one strike on the north castle, once it has been destroyed head back where you can in and duck behind the railing, here it's just a waiting game you need to place 2 more strikes on the east building. You can survive pretty long up here and throw grenades without too much problem, so just hold out until the castle goes down. You have now completed all of the eastern missions, this level was a little difficult but you did it. Now you only have 2 more levels to complete, and they're not really easy to do, yet with completing Blowtorch and Corkscrew they're not as difficult so you will be able to do it. -Summary- Get supplies Clear bunkers Rush the steps to the castle Clear mortar crews Eliminate Enemies Hold out and take out Shuri Castle. ============================ C5: Heart of the Reich Difficulty: 10/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: HOTR ============================ Starting off you just got out of the subway and need to take the steps of the Reich, once you have control head to the left until you appear outside the enemies stronghold. Rush in to the front and take cover and make your way around it while running from the occasional grenade spam. Once you have reached the corner go behind the building to the left that dash down the front. You will see a window, there is a sniper in here kill him, than as you turn the corner to the left kill the 3 or 4 Germans outside, hug the right wall and keep your eye on the broken hole in the wall that lets you see in the building, there will be a German right by the entry way and 2 more inside, kill them than head on out and into the next building. The building is covered with books and bookshelves all torn down, so just rush in and around killing the Germans at the end hiding by the desks. There is a lot of cover here, but you need to head up around the right, once you eliminated them all, head outside in the trench and into the tunnel for the second part of the mission. Here you will need to eliminate 4 flak cannon crews, and this is really difficult since you only get a checkpoint after taking out 2 but here is my method after lots of trial and error the best way to do this is. Immediately head right, use the wall by the tank for cover, than head right to the steps along side the wall, you'll see a broken chunk out of the wall which you can use to climb up. Once your on top prone and kill the enemies to your right while slowly making your way up, you should see the flak cannon dead ahead, throw a grenade and take out your gun and pick off the enemies still surrounding it. Than move up, tricky thing is sometimes an enemy is just hiding right behind the flak88 and as you make your way to the cannon he jumps out and will shoot at you, so take caution. The next troublesome part is you can't prone up to the Flak88 you have to walk up allowing you to get shot from the other 10,000 Nazis here. So get up there, plant the charge and rush back down and make a right to the tank. Here you can pick up a Panzershreks, use this to peak out and take out the Flak88 to the left of you, you will now have a checkpoint and have to head forward to take out 2 other flak88. Your going to take out the left Flak 88, so proceed up, just keep running for cover from the grenades, but head to the left near the flak88 you should find some barrels/boxes for some decent cover from fire. You just need to watch your upper right where the enemies are coming in from the building, head on up the steps and keep an eye out on the top of the building there might be a sniper so kill him. Once your on top crawl near the fence right by the flak88 and eliminate the crew, once it seems clear, rush down and plant the explosives on it, than head right using cover to regain your speed. Now keep heading to the last one, Reznov should be taking cover right here, so crawl and peek around the corner and take out the flak88 crew. Once they have been eliminated slowly but not too slow get over there to plant the explosives, now run back to your cover. Once they Flak88 have been destroyed you will get another checkpoint and now have to proceed up the German stronghold before the steps of the Reichstag. This is pretty hard, but I found out a really easy way to do it on my second time through. When you get your checkpoint, make sure you have the Kar98k than head behind and on top of the building behind you. You can pick off a good majority of the enemies here and there is a moment when they stop spawning. So once you cleared enough to make it through the buildings without a problem head forward to the right building. Head inside and up the stairs, here you can find your self a panzershreks and a PTRs sniper rifle, use this to pick off the people on the steps that *you* can go up, not the ones on the left. If you kill enough people here Reznov will tell your men to move forward and you will get a much needed checkpoint. Your basically going to do the same thing here, but before you do head outside and to your right and look up you should see some sandbags and a guy held up here. Kill him, than go back into the building and go all the way to the back and snipe off people until your out of ammo, make sure you don't keep killing the infinite respawns guys. Just pick off the people in the building or held up by the building. Once you kill some of them focus on the stairways defense and take them out. Now head down stairs and up the stairway prone going to cover to cover. When Reznov says, "Move Forward" go back downstairs and continue the same thing. He will than ask you to come over, head back up the steps, a pillar should fall down, go all the way down the stairs. A Nazi with a flamethrower will torch Chernov and once he is dead go with Reznov into the Reichstag, and this will end the level. This is a horrendous level made from the depth of hell, it's really hard to do even for the second or third time for me, it took about an hour to finally figure out a strategy that now works constantly. Checkpoints are weird after you destroy the Flak88 since my first time I got a checkpoint when I went into the building, this time I had to destroy a good amount of their forces to get a checkpoint. Either way, I'm done with this level and so are you, now the final level approaches us. -Edit- Also, during the part where you need to take out the 2 flak88, I previously thought they only gave you one Panzershrek, but there are 2. The second one is right along the side of the stairs to the building that leads to the right upper right Flak88, so you could technically take out both further away flak88 with the panzershrek fire, the video doesn't show the second one, but it's still useful just incase you miss and have to do it the hard way. -Summary- Storm the German defenses held up at the street Take out the Library Take our 4 Flak88 Storm the steps ============================ Final: Downfall Difficulty: 9/10 Strategy: Yes Reference Code: DFALL ============================ This is the final level, and you have made it this far so there is no turning back. Your room has been destroyed, everyone in your family is now afraid because your extreme yelling and banging of objects into the wall. Now it's time to make all this worth it for those Gamer Points. This is probably the really hardest part of this whole level, as soon as you step out your obliterated with MG fire or snipers. What makes it worse, is you can't really see the enemies nor can you really peek to find them since they have some type of super human sense to tell that your just peeking. So what you do is wait until the people behind you go out, most of them will be killed by gun fire, now you have to rush out there and try to make it to the barricade. You can choose to go left or head right, the right seems to have you more covered than the left, so were going to take the right. Crawling along side it you should make it into the room, if you look through the dresser, you should see a guy in the corner, kill him than get down and move a bit to the right you should see a very small opening, here you can take out 2 more enemies. Now you need to rush all the way down to the right and get in prone using the boxes as cover. If stand up and move to the left you expose your whole body to the people on the stairs out in the main room, but you don't have a choice. The trick is to take out all the enemies on the left held up and the enemies in the middle that you can run in to the right section. Here you can peek out and kill the enemies on the mini towers and under the structure. Once you cleaned them up but your side to the wall of the stair, than look up and back up till you can see 1 or 2 enemies, kill them than proceed up the stairs. You should hopefully get a checkpoint here so you don't have to keep wasting time trying to get here. Now go up the stairs crawling so you don't get shot from above, as you approach the next set of stairs throw a grenade up there to try and kill some of the Nazis waiting. Move up and pick them off if you see their heads. You should be able to clear them out from here, now move up into the next room. Here you will see a major battle going down in the auditorium you need to provide some cover for your comrades so you can advance. This is really easy, just turn right and head up the stairs and make another right where you can pick up a sniper rifle, use it to kill all the Germans holding their positions below. After a while some Germans will appear opposite of you which you can snipe off here. Switch your sniper rifle for something else, and head back down stairs. You need to move down using the chairs as cover, as soon as you reach the barricade head left, you will eventually find a Panzershreks, which you need to aim and destroy the huge golden eagle above the enemies. Do this, than prepare to take out 3-4 enemies with flame throwers. Keep your distance and defeat them and move up into the next area. Your just going to clean up the remnants of the enemy on the balcony, just keep moving forward shooting them. This a really easy section, you can toss grenades to make them scatter so you can burst them all down. Once they've been finished continue upwards to the final hold of the Reichstag. This is probably the second hardest part of this mission, as you go up the steps your screen will start shaking as all hell is being contained. Stay prone and move up and look to your upper left, you'll see an enemy with a Panzershrek, luckily none of his shots can kill you since your on an angle, so take him out and scoot over to the left, you should see another enemy kneeling down on the scaffold. Take him out, the hard part is the guy on the mg and 2 guys further down. The 2 soldiers on the other scaffold are really hard to see, which make this really frustrating as you keep looking and can barely see. So this is all up to your eyes to see them and make the shot. Once you taken out the MG nest, and all the surrounding soldiers move up to the left next to the box and use it as cover. 2 enemies will keep spawning by the sandbags and keep attacking you constantly. So your best bet is to inch out and take out the 2. Than move up right to their barricade and slowly make your way around it. Look to the very right hole in the wall, take out the head of the German in here, than take a look outside to the right and kill the soldier next to the entry way. Now move in, as you enter this room go prone and aim above the barrel to headshot the soldier inside. This is the hard part, move up and you will see 2 or 3 enemies further down the tunnel kill them, than head outside using the pipe as cover. You will see a broken down beam, head here and look to the top and take out the Panzershreks. Once you have done this, head back to the piping and look back at the scaffold to your upper right, kill the soldiers going underneath it. You can also look under the pipe and kill some soldiers outside. Now rush back into the room, and kill the 3 Germans to your right. Head out and finish the game. You have done it, you have beaten the hardest Call of Duty on Veteran, not even COD2 could really compare to the difficulty. Yes, by difficulty I mean the endless spam's of grenades all over. You deserve all the points and more, you can now rest easy. -Summary- Storm the Reichstag Clean it up Support your comrades from the balcony Finish the game. ============================ A2: Frequently Asked or thinking of asking questions ============================ Q: Why didn't you add a section for controls or weapons? A: You have an instruction manual for the controls, why should I write them down? You can also check them in game. As for the weapon section, I didn't really see a point in listing the weapons you can go on-line and read some extra information about them, if it is very important to know what I think of each weapon if I get enough e-mails I might be willing to write it up, but as for now it's not really important. It really comes down to you using a SMG and a Bolt action rifle most of the time anyway. Q: Your guide is hard to follow, be more thorough and detailed! A: This is a FPS, and on Veteran mode there are tons of infinite spawned enemies, I am only focusing on the more important parts of the game. This is also explained in the strategy section. If you follow my advice you shouldn't have too much of a problem, sometimes you have to skip enemies. You kill who you have to, you use the cover that you find useful or use mine. The choice is up to you, but in the end you shouldn't have too much of a problem. Q: You die in your videos, how can you show that and why should I bother listening to you if your having problems? A: I never stated that I went through each level flawlessly besides the Black Cats mission and the tank mission, and I don't know many people who didn't die on any of the other levels, even if you know what's coming that won't help the random grenade tosses and the environment that will hold you back or stupid teammates who will push you out of the way or get in your way. I did die, but on my second run through making this guide I only had problem on the actual really hard levels. I did them a third time based on the strategy and got through it in less time. So if you can do the hardest missions without any problem, pat yourself on the back. If not, please don't e-mail me about how horrible I am. This game is made of pure evil and horrible checkpoint logic. Instead of having stable checkpoints it decided whether you continue or don't. Q: There are tipos or gramar problems lurn to spell. A: No, I still want you to comprehend what I'm saying but mistakes may happen, my apologies but sometimes I stayed up in the early hours to write this guide, so if things look funny you may point it out and I will try to fix it. Q: Can I use this guide for other difficulties? A: Yeah, the only major difference between them is on Veteran mode you die easier and have to deal with more enemies and grenades. Q: Is there an easier way through Blowtorch and Corkscrew? A: No Q: Where is the list of Death Cards? A: On another site/guide/video try looking for it. Q: You sound like a real hardcore ass, what's up with that? A: Only stupid people get me to be an ass, I am normally a nice guy. Don't ask stupid questions or questions which are easily answered. I.E " Is the SVT a machinegun?, I been using it but it doesn't fire like one." Chances are I won't get these type of questions, but as long as you in a nice way I will reply in such, but if it's the opposite expect the same. Q: Your guide and videos suck! A: I'm sorry you didn't like them or it, even though I spent to time trying to help you. Get over it and find a better way. Q: I can make a better guide! A: Do it, more views on a game will help players find multiple ways of doing something. Q: Can I use something from your guide in mine? A: Ask and you might receive. Q: You sound weird and or some videos have no commentary! A: Sorry sometimes when I'm doing the recording I just mess around with my comments, or get sidetracked writing something down. If you notice a video has no commentary (I.E Breaking Point it will be fixed in the future) Q: I can do it faster, why does it take so long for you to complete some levels. A: I am a super cautious player until I know what needs to be done, even knowing that I have to do a certain objective, I don't want to rush and die. I have replayed veteran mode about 3 to 4 times and by the fourth time I was breezing through the levels. This guide was done between the second and third run through. Q: I want to help you with your guides, I.E Jobs. A: I would love to have help, spelling and grammar checker, and possibly someone who is excellent in video editing and has the time to do it, I don't have the time to make fancy effects because I'm busy with school work and projects at college. So if you want to help on further projects you can apply, make sure your e-mail is titled . "Guide Application." so I don't delete it. Q: I want you to make a guide for so and so game! A: Maybe, it depends if it's worth my time. If there are any other questions, feel free to e-mail me. I will try my laziest to answer them. ============================ A3: Credits ============================ Thank you Treyarch for making a great game, I know a lot of people have been ragging on you ever since Call of Duty 3, and it's really stupid.
