2. Weapon Facility (20G) — Gain access to the Facility in Nightfall.

3. Survived Nightfall (20G) — Kill the Breeder for the first time in Nightfall.

Tips: Have 2 automatic Sentry Guns ready to shoot at the Breeder’s eggs nest. And avoid his tail’s automatic gunfire & red mist attacks by not staying out in the open too long.

This video guide explains how to kill the Breeder:

4. Speed Slayer (20G) — Kill the Breeder in less than 5 minutes in Nightfall.

Maka explains step-by-step how to do it in 4-player:

First of all, it is extremely important for all 4 players to have the Venom-X weapon when entering the Final Area. It is recommended that all players save up as much ammo as possible for this weapon. Also, make sure that all the players share cash, so that everyone has a good amount to help each other out with ammo, shields and boosters. Money is hard to come by in the final area because the enemies are rare, and don’t give much cash.

As soon as the first player enters the broken wall and the audio dialogue begins, the timer will begin. The tactic is simple, players take turns using the Venom-X to shoot the Breeder in the head, causing the green toxic gas to stay on it. Once the monster takes damage, it will fall and kneel, leaving it 100% vulnerable to direct attacks from up close. Do not use Venom-X during this stage. You want 3 players to be unloading their fully automatic weapons with explosive ammo into its weak spot. Having one member with a fully upgraded Death Machine will work wonders, but is not necessary. The other member will keep smaller enemies that spawn away from the group.

As soon as the Breeder begins to come out of the kneeling position, RUN! You want to seek cover behind one of the hives or work trucks in the area. Watch out for its machine guns, they are extremely powerful. If the Breeder launches eggs, destroy them before they get a chance to hatch, and dispose of small enemies when possible. The Breeder also has a “shielding” period which I believe it invulnerable to Venom-X and regenerates some health. While players are covering the Breeder with Venom-X ammo, the other players will want to aim at the Breeder’s head or watch out for small enemies. Rinse and repeat the cycle until it gets down to 50% health, hopefully in about 2 minutes. At this point it will go hide, and a ton of enemies will spawn. Use the small gap in time to regenerate ammo and shield with the team. While she is gone, a ton of difficult enemies will spawn including 3-4 Rhinos. If money/ammo permits, it is recommended that the team uses some sentries/vultures as well extra Venom-X ammo on the Rhinos to bring them down a lot faster and protect the team better. Once the Rhinos are cleared, you want to be under the 3 minute mark with a decent amount of money and Venom-X ammo. Use the above method to kill the Breeder, by using Venom-X ammo and headshots to make the Breeder fall, and then have the entire team shoot her in the weak area. When she is close to dying, use as many abilities as you need to stay alive, and aim for the head to bring her down. Once her health bar disappears, she is dead and the timer stops.

5. Turnabout is Fair Play (20G) — Kill 50 Cryptids with the Venom-X weapon in Nightfall.

Location: The Venom-X becomes available after clearing the middle hive in Area 3. Once you clear the hive, the Venom-X can be picked up inside of the room. All members in your group are able to pick it up for free.

The Venom-X gun is extremely powerful, but comes with very little ammo, and additional ammo for this weapon is picked up from dead enemies who randomly drop a small glowing egg. Keep killing Cryptids until you hit 50.

6. Nightfall Completionist (30G) — Complete all challenges and kill the Breeder in Nightfall.

Tip: To finish all challenges, check out our full Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught Nightfall Completionist Guide.

7. Throttled Survival (30G) — Kill the Breeder while using a Relic in Nightfall.

8. Phantom Exterminator (20G) — Kill 5 Phantoms in one game.

9. Pea Shooter (20G) — Kill a Rhino with only a pistol in Nightfall.

Note: To get this achievement, the Rhino must take damage from ONLY pistols. This means that the Rhino CANNOT take any damage from turrets, sentries, vultures, traps, grenades, weapons, SOFLAM, etc… Also, only the player who delivers the final killing hit to the Rhino will get the achievement. It is recommended that you do this with a party of 4 players who you know, or solo. If any player damages the Rhino with something other than the Pistol, the achievement is voided for everyone. So just take turns killing each subsequent Rhino and make sure everyone only uses pistols when attacking Rhinos. Or you can simply do this achievement solo!

Location: There are plenty of Rhinos in the Nightfall DLC, but realistically you will only be able to do this achievement using one of the first three, which are found in Area 2. The first Rhino will attack during the 3rd drilling session of Area 2. He can spawn almost anywhere, but he will usually appear in open ground somewhere near the drill.

It is advised that you immediately turn your sentries around, or don’t deploy them in the first place for this achievement. Everyone on the team should pull out their pistols and be using explosive ammo. Also, using a flare will help take the attention of all the other smaller aliens that get in the way and damage you. At this point, you want everyone on the team to focus fire onto the Rhino, although it will still take about 1 full minute to kill him if everyone has their pistols drawn.

10. Undiscovered Truths (30G) — Found all intels.

Tip: To find all 15, check out our Call of Duty: Ghosts Onslaught Intel Locations Guide.

11. Egg-stra XP! (20G) — Complete the Egg-Stra XP challenge and then destroy a hive in the Onslaught DLC package.

Go on an Egg Hunt in the 4 Multiplayer Maps, must be done in a public match. You can find 4 Extinction Hive Eggs throughout the Onslaught Maps. Shoot each egg nest to progress. Once you’ve shot all 4 egg nests, go into any map on Extinction Mode (like the new Nightfall map) to destroy a hive and gain 10,000 XP!

Timeline in minutes for the Egg in each Multiplayer Map:
• [0:06] – Ignition
• [0:29] – Fog
• [0:55] – Bayview
• [1:15] – Containment
