After meeting with Captain Price in Mission 1: F.N.G., you must do the Ship Training course. You must shoot several training targets while navigating through a cargo ship mockup. First, shoot the two targets in the middle, both with one hit as you pass by (line them up for one shot). Shoot the next target as you walk by, then the one downstairs. Immediately ready a flash grenade and throw it into the next room. Shoot the two targets while moving through the room and again the two targets in the next room. You will now reach the last two targets. Throw a flash grenade in the room and as you do, move out of the cargo ship and towards the ending point. While moving, shoot the two targets through the wall. If you were standing idle until the flash grenade explodes, you will lose 1-2 seconds. Moving and shooting through cover can make all the difference. Also, make sure to get the 3 second bonus for accuracy. Try to be as accurate as possible. This bonus will deduct 3 seconds from your actual time -- which is crucial to beating the 15.1 seconds requirement to get the "Best Of The Best" achievement.
The "Flyswatter" achievement is split across two sections of Mission 15: Heat. During the "Fall Back and Defend the Southwestern Approaches" objective is the first helicopter encounter of the mission. You can shoot down five helicopters with a minigun after defending the church and going up a hill. The minigun is inside a crashed helicopter. During the "Fall Back to the Farm to the North" objective, when you approach the farm, three helicopters will appear behind you. Quickly grab the three rocket launchers from the fence and shoot them down (from left to right). You will also get the "Bird On The Ground" achievement from doing this.Easy "Desert Storm" achievement
Halfway through Mission 2: Crew Expendable ("Secure The Package" objective), you will go through a corridor and get attacked by several enemies. Afterwards your team will throw a flashbang into the next room and kill the enemies for you (there is also an intel computer in the area). In that same area is a guy hiding behind a container. He always has a Desert Eagle. Just run around the side of the area to find him. Eliminate him, grab his gun, and kill 5 enemies with it in the next encounter to get the "Desert Storm" achievement.Easy "Ghillies In The Mist" achievement
In Mission 13: All Ghillied Up, you play as a sniper in a Ghillie suit and have to follow Captain MacMillan. Follow the captains instructions and take out the enemies stealthily. Always perform headshots and make sure the enemy bodies are not found and the kills are not noticed. This can be done on any difficulty, but the video was captured on the Veteran difficulty.
After killing the first group of enemies in Mission 13: All Ghillied Up, you will reach a church. Take out the guards and grab a stinger missile from inside the church. Exit through the backdoor and a helicopter will shortly appear. Shoot the stinger at the helicopter. Then, quickly run back inside and grab another stinger. Shoot the helicopter a second time to destroy it. This can be very tricky on the Veteran difficulty because the helicopter instantly kills you. Try it on the lowest difficulty if you run have any issues.Easy "Mile High Club" achievement
At the start of Mission 15: Heat, there is an old church on the right side. Climb up the ladder to the church tower. You will find a bunch of RPGs in the tower. Shoot all of them at the enemies below the tower. You will get "The Man In The High Tower" achievement once you have used up all the RPGs from the tower.Easy "Three Of A Kind" achievement
After going down the stairs at the very beginning of the "Crew Expendable" mission, knife the drunk soldier, then go into the room on right, and knife the two sleeping soldiers in the bed to get the "Three Of A Kind" achievement.Easy "Time Paradox" achievement
In Mission 14: One Shot, One Kill, there is a new Easter Egg that did not exist in the original Modern Warfare. In the Remastered version, you can see Makarov sitting in a car and shoot him. This will create a time paradox, meaning the events of Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 3 would never have happened had he died that day. At the very start of the mission, wait for approximately a minute and McMillan will tell you "It's now or never, take the shot." Then, snipe Zakhaev (the old man in the middle) and Makarov (the man sitting in the car to the left). Kill both of them quickly to get the "Time Paradox" achievement. Note: Due to the wind, the bullets may not hit exactly where you aim. Thus, shoot a few extra rounds to be on the safe side.Easy "Your Show Sucks" achievement
Throughout Mission 5: Charlie Don't Surf, you will find TVs with Al-Asad's speech playing. On the screens, you can see a man on a bright background. You must destroy all of these TVs. Computer screens and other TV screens do not count -- just the ones that show Al-Asad. Either shoot or knife them.
