Call of Duty: WW2 Heroic Actions location guide

You'll witness many horrors of war during the campaign, but also great moments of heroism, and that's where the Call of Duty: WW2 Heroic Actions come in. If you want to prove your mettle then you'll need to be in the right place at the right time to drag your Call of Duty: WW2 allies to safety, force enemies to surrender, or save allies who are locked in struggles with opposing forces. There are 23 of these Call of Duty: WW2 Heroic Actions to perform in total, and completing all of them will earn you the following trophies or achievements for your virtual collections:

I've Got You! - Drag 9 unique allies to safety.
Quarter Given - Get 4 unique groups of enemies to surrender.
Rescuer - Save 10 unique allies locked in struggle.

Bear in mind that these events are context sensitive so may not always appear in the exact location shown in this guide, though if not then they will be close by. They are often time limited as well, but if you fail to complete the action and it doesn't register (check in the pause menu) you can simply choose to restart from the Last Checkpoint and have another attempt, or revisit later via Mission Select. Good luck, soldier!
