Call of Duty Modern Warfare II Trophy Guide & Roadmap

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 Trophy Guide & Roadmap (2022)


Is Call of Duty Modern Warfare II (2022) a remake of the original MW2 (2009)

The new Modern Warfare 2 is a sequel to the 2019 reboot. This is a not at remake or a remaster – it´s a retelling of the original story from the old Modern Warfare games.

Is Modern Warfare Warzone 2.0 free to all players?

Just like the oiriginal Warzone, it´s completely free to play and does not require a copy or purchase of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Simply download Warzone 2.0 free from the PlayStation Store. Note that there are no trophies related to Warzone or PVP.

Is Realism harder than Veteran?

Yes – luckily you only need to complete the game on Veteran difficulty for 100%.

If you feel confident and want to get most if not all trophies in one playthrough, start the game on Veteran difficulty. If you miss 1 or 2 misc trophies during step 1, you can get them during step 2 on Regular difficulty using mission select. Some misc trophies can be quite challenging on Veteran. If you are struggling, complete the mission and replay it later.

Trophies earned during this step:


If you missed any trophies during your 1st playthrough, go to mission select and clen up what you may have missed. Many missions can be completed super quick on the lowest difficulty.


This is your last roadblock to achieve the Platinum trophy. If you have a friend or good partner, this step will be a lot easier than playing with randoms. You need to complete the missions, Low Profile, Denied Area and Defender: Mt. Zaya with a 3-star rating. Besides that you need to complete Low Profile without triggering an alarm and collect 20 Intel Fragments (over 50 Intel Fragments available across old and new missions).

Trophies earned during this step:

Trophy Guide

We are RTB
Collect all the Trophies

Unlock all other trophies to earn the Platinum.

Shoot three enemies while underwater in ‘Wetwork’.


This is a pretty simple trophy. As soon as the mission starts, kill the first enemy and pick up his pistol. While underwater, shoot and kill 3 enemies. If it´s to hard hitting headshots while underwater, go for bodyshots.

Reach the barge without being seen in ‘Wetwork’.


You want to kill most if not all enemies with headshots. Sometimes if you miss and hit their body, quickly shoot them again and kill them, before they trigger the alarm. If an alarm is triggered just reload from last checkpoint.

You want to pick off the enemies one by one, to the left and to the right. Keep a lookout for the boat patrolling down the middle of the map. After killing the enemies on the piers, line up your shots to kill the 2 enemies on the boat. Afterwards you need to go the barge, here are some enemies partolling and 2 standing still. You want to take out the patrolling enemies first, then the last 2 standing still. This way you won´t trigger any alarm. Just make sure that the patrolling enemies are far enough away from the others.

While affected by one Flashbang, kill two enemies in the Campaign or in Co-op.


This trophy can be earned almost anywhere in the game, as long as you have some flashbangs equipped. An easy play to get this is the start of Mission 6: Cartel Protection. The trophy probably won´t unlock right away, it will take you a couple of tries to get it. It has to be at the exact moment you are blinded, for the kills to count.

Nobody was There
Never trigger the alarm in ‘Recon by Fire’.


This can be a bit tedious. To unlock the trophy, you need to complete BOTH sniping sections without triggering an alarm. Before you shoot any enemies, wait for Price´s the callout on how low or high, you need to aim to kill the enemies. If you trigger an alarm, reload your checkpoint. It´s okay if you trigger an alarm during other sections of the missions – only the 2 sniping sections count for the trophy.

The trophy unlocks, when you kill the last enemy at the lighthouse, if you didn´t trigger any alarms.

Test Drive
Drive five vehicle types in ‘Violence and Timing’.


After falling out of the helicopter near the start of the mission, you will find yourself on the roof of a vehicle. From here you need to hijack it – this is the first vehicle type. There is a total of 6 different types you can hijack.

  • Big Transport Truck (the one you first land on falling out the helicopter)
  • Truck with enemies on it
  • Pickup Truck with enemies on it
  • Hummer (they have turrets on the top)
  • Civillian Truck
  • Civillian Car

The 2 civillian vehicles can be found on the side of the road. Park next to them for the opportunity to enter them – you can´t hijack the moving civillian vehicles driving on the road. Commandeer a total of 5 different types for the trophy.

Keeping this One
Reach Price using the first vehicle you hijack.


Near the start of the mission, you fall out a helicopter and land on the roof of a big truck. Hijack it and stay in it until you reach Price. This trophy can be really hard on “Veteran” difficulty. I recommend playing on “Recruit.” Avoid all collions with vehicles and obstacles. If you take a hit and suffer a lot of damage, reload last checkpoint. The hardest part about this trophy is halfway when you face an enemy throwing mines on the road. Again, if you hit a mine – reload last checkpoint.

The trophy unlocks when you reach Price and jump onto his vehicle.

Reach the penthouse in ‘El Sin Nombre’ without killing anyone or triggering the alarm.


The trophy can be earned right after the interrogation scene. Reach Alejandro without killing anyone or triggering an alarm. Reload your last checkpoint if you´re spotted. You need to pick up bottles you can throw to lure enemies away from your path.

The only difficult part is the last section when you´re on the roof. Throw multiple bottles to your right, to lure most of the enemies, peak over cover, and when it´s clear vault over it and crouch to the ladder. As soon as you reach the top, go prone to avoid detection. The trophy unlocks when you get out of the elevator and meet Alejandro.

Gentleman Thief
Open three safes in the Campaign.



There are 3 safes in the game, spread across 2 missions. The first safe is located in the mission El Sin Nombre. The last 2 are in the mission Alone.

  1. EL SIN NOMBRE – After getting up to the first floor. Lure the guard away or kill him. Go down the walkway/balcony to reach a room. Open the closet to reveal the safe. The code is 02-02-19.
  2. ALONE – When you reach the café, Ghost will make a joke about tea, Soap will respond: “F*cking brits.” Facing a case you can pry open, head left to find a door. Pry it open to reveal the safe. The code is 10-10-80.
  3. ALONE – Right after the 2nd safe, at the mechanic with all the cars. Head into the office to your left after passing some parked cars – the safe is in the corner. The code to the safe is 37-60-80.

A Crappy Way to Die
Kill the enemy in the porta-potty.


Near the very start of the mission, you group up with some teammates and head up a set of stairs. When you reach the top, there are two porta-potties. Shoot the one to the left before Alejandro does. There is an enemy behind the door.

Don’t touch the deck!
In ‘Dark Water’ advance 90 meters towards the front of the ship without touching the deck.


Near the end of the mission, you´re sailing with Graves and end up crashing into the big freigther. The trophy starts here. Jump onto one of the moving containers or boxes. You need to time your jumps, and vault onto the various moving objects on the deck. If you fall down and hit the deck, reload your last checkpoint. You need to reach the very end without falling down. I recommend doing this trophy on Recruit difficulty. This can take alot of tries on Veteran before you get it, depending on your skill.

Finish ‘Alone’ without firing a gun.


I recommend attempting this trophy on Recruit difficulty, the last section on Veteran is almost impossible without firing a gun. You need to rely on your different throwables and melee for the entirety of the mission. Smoke bombs are especially good to evade the enemies. On recruit you can run past most enemies. When you reach the café area with enemies everywhere, use the smoke bombs to cover your run to the aqueduct. You can also just run up to enemies and melee them if you want. Complete the mission and the trophy is yours.

No time to lose
Complete the CCTV sequence in four minutes.


The time requirement on this trophy is super tight. You want to make a practice run or two before attemting this. You need to time Ghost´s moments and attacks exactly to avoid getting spotted or killed. You can make a backup save before attempting this, if you don´t want to play the first part of the mission again.

Backpack Guy
Kill gassed or blinded enemies using a Molotov, Semtex and Frag in ‘Prison Break’.


When you enter the prison, it´s possible to open your backpack and switch throwables. Hold UP on the D-pad to switch between them. Kill 3 different enemies which are blinded by flashbangs, with each type of lethal throwable. First throw a flashbang, then kill the enemy with a molotov for example. Switch to the next lethal throwable and repeat. Get a kill which each lethal on enemies blinded by flashbangs.

There are multiple options throughout the mission to restock all throwables.

Wall of Duty
Kill three Enemies with the Riot Shield in the Campaign or in Co-op.


When you get to a long hallway inside the prison, you´re greeted by some enemies with riot shields. Kill them and equip one of their shields. Run up to enemies and melee them with the shield. Kill 3 enemies to unlock the trophy.

Practice makes Perfect
Shoot all the targets in the training area in ‘Ghost Team’.


This trophy is best to attempt on Recruit difficulty, but it is doable on Veteran. At the very end of the mission, you fight a tank. This will take place in a training area with a total of 33 targets. Hit all targets and the trophy is yours. Do note that if you die, you need to hit all targets again.

Must be Wind
Rescue the hostages in ‘Countdown’ without the enemies firing their weapons.


This trophy stretches over 3 different hostage situations at the start of the mission. You are rapelling down the side of a skyscraper and need to save all hostages. This trophy is all about timing, speed and lining up your shots.

1st hostage situation is super simple. Headshot the 2 enemies.

2nd hostage situations is a bit more tricky. Kill the 2 enemies to the left first, then the next enemy closest to the window. Finally there´s an enemy in the back – sometimes he spots you if you aren´t fast enough.

3rd hostage situation has 5 enemies present. Go all the way to the right first and line up the 2 enemies. Next you want to position yourself so you can kill the last 3 enemies at the same time. It´s possible to hit all 3 with 1 bullet.

Time for Pints
Finish the Campaign on any difficulty.

Automatic story-related trophy, cannot be missed. Complete all 17 missions on any difficulty to unlock the trophy.

Cutting Heads off Snakes
Finish all Campaign missions on Veteran or Realism difficulty.

If you have played previous Call of Duty games on Veteran, this shouldn´t be a problem. Alot of the sequences in the game is about stealth or involves set pieces. There are only a few areas that can be a bit troublesome.

Whenever you suffer damage – take cover! Stay in cover until your health has fully recovered. Always play it safe and don´t take chances. Pick the enemies off one by one and take it slow. Luckily checkpoints are plentiful. Use the riot shields whenever they are available – this is by far the best weapon on Veteran difficulty. You can run up to every enemy and melee them. This is especially useful during mission 14: Prison Break and mission 17: Countdown. You can complete the campaign in about 6 hours, even on Veteran.

When you start the game and continue your Veteran run, pause the game and make sure that you are on Veteran difficulty. Some players have reported that the game switch you back to Regular difficulty, when you continue your campaign.

Night Fight
Earn three Stars in ‘Low Profile’.

The 1st mission in the Spec Ops Campaign is Low Profile. You only have to complete the mission under 16 minutes to get 3 stars and the trophy.

This is the easiest mission to earn 3 stars. It can be done with multiple deaths and still under 16 minutes.

Earn three Stars in ‘Denied Area’.

Deniead Area is the 2nd co-op mission. We completed the mission in 9:09 – even faster than Infinity Ward´s time! You only have to complete the mission under 16:00 to get 3 stars and the Hellride trophy. This is by far the hardest of the 3 missions, in my opinion.

You need kill RPG wielding enemies and Helicopters as soon as they spawn! This will take some practice. You need to know their spawns and have the correct equipment at the right time. 1 player drives while the other is on the roof destroying incoming vehicles. At every SAM Site (where your objective is), there will be some self-revive kits. Make sure you have one at all times. Sometimes high speed is best. Quickly plant the explosives and then run towards the nearest vehicle. Make sure that you shoot enemy RPG´s in the watchtowers on your way out.

Kings of the Mountain
Earn three Stars in ‘Defender: Mt. Zaya’.

The 3rd mission is a bit different than the others. You have to complete the mission while keeping the enemies from planting no more than 3 bombs to earn 3 stars.

Always keep an eye on the radar to see if any enemies are nearing one of the zones. Sometimes they can plant a bomb right next to you, without you even realising it. They can be hard to spot at times. You need to use cash at your spawn point to give yourself an edge. But consider saving some cash for the later waves, like wave 4-6. Make use of the Demon Dogs AI and Sentry Turrets. They can keep and area clear for almost a full round. Beware of the Juggernaut thats spawn in wave 6, leave him for last – he can´t place any bombs.

Going Dark
Complete ‘Low Profile’ without triggering any alarms.

This trophy can be super difficult if you play with a random. I highly recommend finding a friend with the same goal. You have to complete objective A, B and C without raising an alarm. The trophy unlocks when the exfil objective comes up on screen,. When you are in an objective area, use your geiger counter with L1 to find the crates you need to collect.

If you get spotted by the enemies, both you and your teammate can die on purpose and then reload last checkpoint – it doesn´t void the trophy. Sometimes when you get spotted and shot at, it does not necessarily set off an alarm.

Only the Beginning
Earn at least one Star in Co-op.

This trophy will come naturally while going for 3 stars in each mission.

Full SSE
Find 20 intel fragments in Co-op.

There is well over 20 Intel Fragments to collect in Spec Ops (co-op mode). At launch there was 3 available co-op missions –

  • Low Profile (20 Intel)
  • Denied Area (20 Intel)
  • Defender: Mt. Zaya (10 Intel)

Follow the video guide, and collect any Intel Fragments for a total of 20 to unlock the trophy. I recommend completing the mission after collecting Intel. Some players have reported that it can bug the in-game counter, when leaving a mission before completing it.
