Despite all the horrors of war you witness in Call of Duty: WW2, there are also plenty of opportunities for heroism. Through the course of the game there's a total of 23 Heroic Actions you can perform, which involve dragging allies to safety, getting enemies to surrender, or saving allies locked in struggle.
- Looking for more collectibles? We also have a Call of Duty: WW2 Mementos location guide.
Completing all of these actions will earn you the following trophies or achievements:
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!
