Thanks to the portal, you will be able to leave the wild.

Achievement Description: Escape from the deep wild.

Note: Zombie mode achievement (on the map: Dead Ops Arcade). At some point, you will have the possibility of teleporting to two locations. Choose a portal to the wild and then cut through a horde of zombies.

Patriot Arrow

The spot marked in the image above is the easiest location to get the achievement. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
The spot marked in the image above is the easiest location to get the achievement.

Achievement Description: Kill an enemy with the bow while ziplining in Echoes of a Cold War.

Note: The easiest way to get the achievement is while fighting through the hordes of enemies with another agent. While ziplining, the enemy on the left will be the easiest to shoot at. After that, you can trade the bow for something better.

Mind Trip

Achievement Description: See all 7 memory endings and play through 4 paths ends in the Break on Through mission.

Note: To get this achievement, you will have to complete the Break on Through mission twice On your first playthrough, try to follow Adler's orders. If you do it right, you'll meet Perseus at the end of every memory. Then replay the mission from the mission selection screen (this is where you enter the campaign from the main menu and you can choose which mission to repeat).

On your second run, try to ignore Adler's orders. Do the opposite of what Adler tells you. If you do it right, every memory will end in a room with a chair instead of a room with Perseus. In the 3rd memory, instead of going inside the cave, go right - you will see a trapdoor in the floor. Enter through the trapdoor and walk towards the darkness until you see zombies.

No matter which path you've chosen (if you have obeyed or ignored Adler's orders), the last memory will always be a meeting with Perseus. That gives us a total of seven different memory endings.

Firing Range

The photo above shows which metal targets have to be knocked down. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
The photo above shows which metal targets have to be knocked down.

Achievement Description: Knock down 15 metal targets on the main street in Redlight, Greenlight.

Note: a rather simple achievement, especially since there are a lot of covers nearby. The enemies should not particularly bother you. Some targets move on rails, some are located on the ground.

Scorched Earth II

Achievement Description: blow up all the trucks and guard towers while attacking the monastery in The Final Countdown.

Note: this achievement will require you to focus a little. There are 2 towers at the very beginning - destroy only the one on the right. By the left tower there will be an armored vehicle - shoot it down. The second truck can be found just behind the first line of towers, on the right side (behind the metal fence). The third truck is at the intersection on the left side. The fourth truck is located past the intersection on the right side (also behind the metal fence). A total of 4 trucks to destroy.<br>You still have to destroy 4 towers along the road, but they are easy to spot.

Explosive Finish

Achievement Description: Kill 12 enemies with explosive barrels while riding the server lift in Echoes of the Cold War.

Note: a rather simple achievement because red explosive barrels are set out quite densely. Try to run all over the platform, look for barrels and shoot them when enemies are nearby.

Ashes to Ashes

Achievement Description: Complete the Ashes to Ashes mission on any difficulty.

Note: a fairly simple achievement - the only requirement is that you have to lie to Adler about the whereabouts of Perseus. You will then unlock the mission.

The Red Door

Achievement Description: Ignore Adler's order to go through the door in Break on Through.

Note: at some point, in the 4th memory in Break on Through, your memory will fast-forward and Adler will ask you to go through the red door. Don't do it, go left or right and avoid the falling red door. At some point, the passage will be blocked by a red door. Wait approx. 1 minute until you're teleported to another location. At this point, you should get the achievement.

Scorched Earth

Achievement Description: Destroy all enemy vehicles and mortar teams while defending ripcord base in Fracture Jaw.

Note: a fairly simple achievement - all enemy vehicles are marked as mission objectives, so you'll have no problem destroying them. To find the mortar teams, look for projectiles that leave behind a pile of white smoke. This helps you locate the mortars. You don't have to land at Ripcord, just take a moment and look for the mortars.

Calling It In

Achievement Description: Get 50 kills with lethal scorestreaks in the Multiplayer mode.

Note: Once you score a series of eliminations in Multiplayer, you may call for support - use artillery, missiles and air support to kill your enemies until you get the achievement.

The Fixer

Achievement Description: Get 200 eliminations in Multiplayer.

Note: Just kill other players in Multiplayer.

Go the Distance

Achievement Description: Win 50 multiplayer matches.

Note: Play until you win 50 matches.

Mean Machine

Achievement Description: Kill 100 enemies as a driver, pilot or passenger of a vehicle in Multiplayer.

Note: the fastest way to get the achievement is to opt for the Armada map and get on a boat to shoot the players.

Party Patrol

Achievement Description: Get 10 squad wipe medals in Fireteam.

Note: you must play the Fireteam mode. The task gets much easier if you use some fast weapon (eg. MP5).

Carpe D. I. E. M.

Achievement Description: Find the Lost Decompressive Isotopic Estrangement Machine in Die Maschine.

Note: a time-consuming and problematic achievement because it requires the player to perform several different activites while having to counter a zombie attack. Before you get going with this achievement, you have to complete the Heavy Metal challenge. You can find the description of this achievement in the Achievements section.

Once you have unlocked the Heavy Metal achievement and you have already obtained a Pack-A-Punch Machine, you will have to deal with one specific enemy in Zombie mode - Megaton. The enemy is not that tough. It is radioactive and once killed, it will disintegrate into two smaller radioactive enemies, which you will have to defeat as well. Once killed, they will drop an access card.

This is what Megaton looks like - a large, radioactive enemy. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
This is what Megaton looks like - a large, radioactive enemy.

Pick up the access card and go to the laboratory (the room is located in an underground facility, on the way to the Pack-A-Punch Machine). Insert the keycard. The D. I. E. remote control should fall out of the cabinet. Take it.

At this point, you must use your Megaton access card. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
At this point, you must use your Megaton access card.

Now return to your main base on the surface (starting point). A hole on the left side of the ground floor is where you'll find the Decompressive Isotopic Estrangement Machine. Turn it on.

Here you can turn on the machine. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
Here you can turn on the machine.

Now the zombies will be sucked into a hole next to the machine. Try to gather all the zombies in one large group and go towards the machine where their souls will be taken away. Be careful because it might not kill all the zombies! At some point, when the machine reaches its maximum, you will receive a notification that the machine is full and should be turned off. Turn it off (the same way you turned it on). A door will open in the spot where the machine was located. This is where you'll find the new weapon. Take it - you've just got the achievement.

The new weapon for fighting zombies can be found by the skeleton. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
The new weapon for fighting zombies can be found by the skeleton.

Nightmare at 20 Feet

Achievement Description: Kill 100 enemies without leaving the top of the crashed plane wing in Die Maschine.

Note: a very simple achievement. It might be a bug (if it is, it might get fixed at some point), but while you're on the plane wing (right past the starting point, even before entering the underground facility), you can get off it and get on again - the kill counter will not reset. In front of the wing you can find a gun for 2000 points: a quick-firing Gallo SA12 shotgun. This will make getting the achievement much easier. Use it to unlock the achievement.

Reunited with Fidolina

Achievement Description: defeat Momaback and save your friend.

Note: It's one of the more difficult achievements to get - it requires killing the boss in Zombie mode in Dead Ops Arcade. It's recommended to defeat the boss together with other players. The boss has quite a lot of health and can jump over to you - a concentrated fire of 4 players should kill her fast. Once you kill the boss, Fidolina will spawn on the map and you will get an achievement.

Dungeon Diver

Achievement Description: Explore every corner of Deadly Dungeon.

Note: A fairly easy achievement to be obtained in Zombie mode on the Dead Ops Arcade map. When in the Wild, stick to the left side of the map until you find an entrance to a cave. Enter the cave and explore the entire location (do not use ladders and avoid traps). Once you have entered each room and explored everything, use the ladder. Then you'll get the achievement.

Forever Fated

Achievement Description: Find your destiny in the Room of Fate.

Note: You have to reach the 20th round and advance to the second Wild. Climb to the top of the volcano, kill the boss, go through the crack on the top of the volcano- you will then get inside the Room of Fate. Choose a stone for yourself, then you will get a bonus that you will have until the end of the game.

Craftwork

Achievement Description: Craft 14 different items in one match in Die Maschine.

Note: a very simple achievement.

It's better to have some salvage on you and craft items between waves of enemies - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide

It's better to have some salvage on you and craft items between waves of enemies. The production table is located in the starting point, next to the main building.

Socket-To-Me

Achievement Description: Upgrade a skill in Zombie mode.

Note: a very simple achievement, but requires playing a few matches in this mode, collecting resources and achieving a certain level.

Here you can improve your shooting skills. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
Here you can improve your shooting skills.

Once you do that, upgrade one of your skills in the lobby before a match.

Six Pack

Achievement Description: upgrade 6 Perk Skills to Tier 3 in Zombie mode.

Note: similar to Socket-To-Me achievement. The only difference is that you have to play some more and spend more resources on upgrades.

Two Birds, One Stone

Achievement Description: Kill the two split Megatons with one shot in Die Maschine.

Note: a very simple achievement, especially if you use the weapon that you get for unlocking the Carpe D. I. E. M. achievement. You just need a suitable position (so that the enemies stand more or less in one line) and then you kill the two split Megatons.

Entamaphobia

Achievement Description: Stay in the Yard for 15 rounds in Die Maschine.

Note: An easy achievement, but if staying outside for so many rounds is problematic for you, use other weapons (eg. Gallo, located next to the plane wing), grenades and a crafting table. Buy a bulletproof vest and run around in such a way that the zombies group together. If you really can't make it, try buying a turret.

Seal The Deal

Achievement Description: Close the rift in Die Maschine.

Note: it's a difficult achievement because you will need to have different types of weapon on you at the same time (ice, gas, fire, electric). This challenges is easier to complete together with other players. You have to complete over a dozen steps to get this achievement. We have described all of them in detail on a separate page of this guide.

Heavy Metal

Achievement Description: Forge the Pack-A-Punch Machine.

Note: A time-consuming challenge that you need to do as soon as possible.

First, in the alternate world in Zombie mode, you have to find and assemble the machine. To do this, first get to the underground facility (do it by destroying barricades with explosives as in the photo below). If you do not know where to go exactly, look for purple-glowing arrows.

They indicate spots where you can plant explosives. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
They indicate spots where you can plant explosives.

Once you enter the underground object, keep going straight until you reach the very center of it. Move from target to target - turn on the power and use the two terminals. Then an alternate reality portal will appear. Go through the portal and head up until you find the portal to the laboratory (photo below).

Thanks to the tunnel, you will immediately find the necessary parts for the Pack-A-Punch Machine. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
Thanks to the tunnel, you will immediately find the necessary parts for the Pack-A-Punch Machine.

After you get through the portal, take the parts for the Pack-A-Punch Machine. It looks like in the photo below.

Now return to the place where you used the portal to the alternative reality as soon as possible and put away the machine parts - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide

Now return to the place where you used the portal to the alternative reality as soon as possible and put away the machine parts. You have to do the whole operation pretty quickly because you can't stay too long in the alternative reality. The game will teleport you to your reality itself. At this point, the achievement should unlock and you should have access to the new machine that will give you various bonuses for fighting zombies.

Fowl Five Piece

Achievement Description: Get a chain of 5 chickens strung together in Dead Ops Arcade.

Note: a simple achievement. You will need to find a cave in the Wild in Dead Ops Arcade (photo below). Stick to the right side of the map.

Go through the passage on the right. - Call of Duty Cold War: Achievements/Trophies - list - Appendix - Call of Duty Cold War Guide
Go through the passage on the right.

You will get inside an abandoned temple - collect all possible chests and upgrades (on the other side of the lava as well - you can walk along the footbridge to get there). One of the chests contains 5 chickens. Collect them.
