The Professional 

30 points

Bronze Trophy

Complete the street chase in Comrades in under 2 minutes 30 seconds without dying

This achievement/trophy can be a pain. To make it pop, you need to make it from the door of the building where you have a quick talk with your cohort- all the way down the street to the archway that the person you need to catch runs through. Not only do you have to do this in under two and a half minutes, you have to do it without dying. If you die, restarting the checkpoint will not help. You will need to restart the ENTIRE mission all over and give it another go.


15 points

Bronze Trophy

Take down 2 enemies with 1 bullet in Night Shift

Once you leave the rooftops in “Night Shift” and head to the streets, you will need to hide behind a car as a transport passes by. When you do, there will be three enemies down the street standing together. Your team mate will tell you to not engage them, but if you’re impatient like me, you can shoot the two enemies that are standing close together and kill them both in one shot for the achievement/trophy. If you do however, you will fail and need to reload from the previous checkpoint. If you don’t want to do it that way, there is a spot later on where you are tasked with taking out two enemies on a balcony that you can also tag with one shot. Either place is where you can get this.


30 points

Silver Trophy

Complete all co-op missions

Simply go through each of the six co-op missions on any difficulty.


20 points

Bronze Trophy

Complete the mission without using the fire extinguisher in Fire from the Sky

For this co-op mission, one player will be flying a helicopter while the other uses the guns to clear out the enemies below. Make sure the pilot stays far enough away from the enemies on the ground that you aren’t getting shot continuously. You will also need to keep moving to avoid getting hit and having to use the fire extinguisher to void the achievement/trophy.

Vehicle Warfare 

30 points

Bronze Trophy

Obtain all 3 vehicle warfare ribbons

There are more than a few vehicle related ribbons that you can acquire, but to fulfill this achievement/trophy, you’ll need to get the ribbons that allow you to kill the opposing team from land, sea, and air. The ribbons are:

Air Warfare Ribbon

In a round, kill 6 enemies with air vehicles

Transport Warfare Ribbon

In a round, kill 4 enemies with transport vehicles

Armored Warfare Ribbon

In a round, kill 7 enemies with land vehicles

What the Hell Are You? 

20 points

Bronze Trophy

Take a Russian Dog Tag in the forest ambush in Rock and a Hard Place

At the start of “Rock and a Hard Place” you will get ambushed by some Russian enemies that are hiding behind trees. Simply run up to one of them and give him the whatfor with your knife and you’ll take his dogtag and well as his dignity.

You Can be My Wingman Anytime 

30 points

Bronze Trophy

Complete "Going Hunting" in a perfect run

This is easily one of the most frustrating achievements/trophies of the single player campaign. To get this, you need to take out each enemy fighter with one missile while not getting it yourself. There are seven planes to take out and if you miss or get hit, you will need to restart the mission. When first engaged, let out 2 flares behind you to ward of the rockets fired at you. Once you get them ahead of you, take out the first jet after it lets out 3 flare bursts. After the first plane is taken out, you can immediately take out the 2nd and 3rd when it appears. For the 4th, you’ll need to let it get behind you. Drop your flares to avoid being hit and the jet will then get ahead of you. Let it drop out 2 flares and then take it out and quickly take out the 5th plane afterwards. A short scene will play and then you will have 2 jets left. When they are behind you, drop out 3 flares to avoid their rockets and then the 6th plane will pass on the right. Follow it and after it drops its second flare, take it out. Now you will have one jet left which you can take out when it drops its 3rd flare. When you are waiting for the jets to drop their flares to fire, make sure you give the flares enough time to dissipate and move away so that your missile still doesn’t go towards them. Also make sure to keep your crosshairs on the jets even though you are locked on as much as possible.
