Call Of Duty 5 – World at War – Trophies and Tips

55 Total Trophies: Platinum Trophy 1 Platinum Gold Trophy 2 Gold Silver Trophy 15 Silver Bronze Trophy 36 Bronze Hidden Trophy 1 Hidden

Bronze Trophy
Get Your Hands Dirty

Complete ‘Semper Fi’ on Veteran difficulty. (Solo only)

No tips required

Bronze Trophy
Bloody Peleliu

Complete ‘Little Resistance’ on Veteran difficulty. (Solo only)

No tips required

Bronze Trophy
The Sword Is Broken

Complete ‘Hard Landing’ on Veteran difficulty. (Solo only)

At the end of the mission you have to defend the airfield – Do NOT get on the Triple25 or you will die very quickly. Stay back and kill the soldiers until the mission is complete.

Bronze Trophy

Complete ‘Vendetta’ on Veteran difficulty. (Solo only)

Pretty easy mission, except for two parts:

Sniper part – Once your told which floor the sniper is on (probably 3rd floor), go downstairs of the bar to the window and make it so that you can only see the most right window of the 3rd floor. When he looks out to shoot you, shoot him and move left fast to dodge his shot. Keep an eye out for decoys (you will see a light and a helmet bobbing up and down, dont shoot.) It took me 3 shots to beat him, take your time, don’t rush.

Crawling part – If you have a machine gun from earlier in the mission this part may be easier for you, it can be done with sniper rifle alone. As soon as the soldier spots you, run forward and start crawling. As you get under the fallen bookcase two soldiers will appear in the two windows – try to shoot them both, one shot each. Hit or miss get up and run through the door to the left and follow the wall into the corner, two more windows with two more soldiers, one shot each, run up the stairs hit or miss. You may die a few times attempting this on vetran but will get there in the end.

Bronze Trophy
The Hammer Strikes


Complete ‘Their Land, Their Blood’ on Veteran difficulty. (Solo only)

The hardest part of this mission is exploding the four tanks at the end. There are plenty of missile launchers available throughout the mission and loads of undercover locations to shoot them from. When you open the barn and the final tank appears (shows an enemy tank on the compass before) quickly run to the corner of the barn. Shoot it as soon as it appears, go back on the side of the barn to reload, and repeat.

Bronze Trophy
Scorched Earth

Complete ‘Burn ’em Out’ on Veteran difficulty. (Solo only)

This is one of the hardest missions to beat on Veteran. Make sure you raid the small bunkers to restock your supplies. The hardest part is clearing the tunnels towards the end. Go inside the first bunker on the left, get the Type 99 and a full stock of smoke and frag grenades. Throw two smoke grenades down the tunnel. Wait a couple seconds, go in and throw smoke grenades to the end of the cave. Wait for the smoke to fill the tunnel, walk up and throw some frags in the same place, shooting any runners. When they are all dead, run back to the small tunnel where you got your supplies, restock, and clear out the last mortar pit with smoke and grenades.

Silver Trophy

This is a difficult trophy to achieve. Earlier on in the level where you snipe the guy in the window, in that same room there is a pistol on the table, take it.
