As always, feel free to just scroll down to see the list of achievements and point values. The list is ordered by value of achievement.

While Sledgehammer has developed Advanced Warfare to push the limits of the consoles, it does not seem their achievement list did the same thing. While all CoD’s since CoD 4 have had relatively the same achievement list, Advanced Warfare does deviate from the path in a weird way. Yes, it does only feature single-player achievements or extra co-op achievements and no multiplayer achievements. But this list actually is incredibly easy compared to the rest of the franchise. Featuring one 5 point achievement and ten 10 point achievements, Advanced Warfare will give you an easy 700 gamerscore just by completing the game on the easiest difficulty. This is of course assuming that you are going for the achievements and don’t miss the Intel (the only collectible in AW) or the special types of kills needed for certain achievements.

Most of the achievements featured in this list are just extensions of normal gameplay scenarios. Like the “Genius” achievement; This has you just kill 4 people at once with the smart grenade. These sort of achievements are rather nice and have you actually try to employee some strategy in an otherwise straightforward FPS experience.

Even though most of the achievement list is an extension of the single-player experience, a lot of the difficulty will come from the standard ‘hardest difficulty’ achievement and the new Exo Survival achievements. While Infinity Ward has their patented Spec Ops achievements and Treyarch has their Zombie achievements, Sledgehammer is pulling out the Exo Survival achievements. We honestly have no idea what Exo Survival will be like (in terms of difficulty) but we can assume the achievements will be just as tedious as those present in the other games. These co-op mission achievements often can prove to be frustrating but lets hope those Exo Suits can save the day.

As for the secret achievements…well… they are literally just beating the game. There is no difficulty modifier so really just play the campaign and you will get that extra gamerscore.

Overall, Advanced Warfare has the easiest 50 achievements I have seen in a CoD game. While the “SP Prestige” achievement (completing the game on Veteran) will be just as time consuming as ‘hardest difficulty’ achievements always are, the rest of the achievements are very easily obtainable or easy in theory. They will not challenge you to understand them and honestly, most of these achievements don’t have difficulty modifiers to them, so mines well get most of the achievements on easy after beating the game.
