Modern Warfare 2 trophies and achievements require plenty of stealth

The MW2 trophy list for PlayStation and achievement list for Xbox have been revealed, and you'll need to be somewhat stealthy to 100% the new CoD

With the early access launch of the campaign, the Modern Warfare 2 trophy list and achievement list have also been revealed – and there are plenty that actually ask you to not be trigger-happy.

According to the PS5 trophies and Xbox Series XS achievements lists, Modern Warfare 2 has 24 challenges for you to complete across the campaign and Spec Ops (25 on PS5 if you count the Platinum). Even with a covert squad like Task Force 141, Call of Duty is usually about massive explosions, dramatic chases, and hails of bullets. However, many of MW2’s trophies task you to take the stealthier, less bloodthirsty approach.

If you want to go into MW2’s campaign completely blind, consider this your spoiler warning. No massive plot developments will be revealed, but some names on the MW2 mission list will be, along with some small details about some missions.

Some of the stealth-based trophies in Modern Warfare 2 include:

  • Must be Wind – Rescue the hostages in ‘Countdown’ without the enemies firing their weapons
  • Gunless – Finish ‘Alone’ without firing a gun.
  • Ghost-in-Training – Reach the penthouse in ‘El Sin Nombre’ without killing anyone or triggering the alarm.

Despite your lethal training, it seems Infinity Ward wants to challenge you to some stealthy, pacifist challenges too.

There is also a hilarious sounding trophy that we can’t wait to find and complete in the campaign that requires you to kill an enemy that’s using a porta-potty.
