Introduction                                                       (Int.)

Hi and welcome to my second guide here on Gamefaqs. In this guide I will
give strategies on how to unlock every achievement in the bestselling 
game Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3. I hope it serves you well. Lets get
started.
=========================================================================
What this guide will/won't contain                              (Cntnts.)

First of all this guide will be written from a Xbox 360 point of view. It
shouldn't differ that much from the trophies for PS3. This guide will
cover how and when to unlock all the achievements in the game. This guide
will not cover extensive Campaign/Veteran help nor will it give in-depth
strategy for Spec-Ops.

Breakdown                                                       (Brkdwn.)
Here i'll show how this guide will be laid out and list a few basic tips.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Example Achievement- 1,000,000G

Official description of achievement here.

Explanation of how to get achievement here.

Pro tip(s) (if applicable)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Campaign tips 1) Unless you are going for Veteran achievements or have
some pride left, play on  recruit difficulty, it makes most achievements
easier. 2) Abuse Auto-Aim it makes it the Campaign a breeze. 3) Don't be
a hero! if you're in trouble fall back and let your squad help.

Veteran tips 1) Don't try this if you are still relatively sane. 2) Never
leave cover unless you are sure the area is clear. 3) If some one is
shooting you, get down and recover completely, then return fire.

Spec Ops tips 1) Not all ops are easier with two people, the stealth and
target practice ops can be easier alone. 2) Shoot any dogs you see the
quick-time events can be tricky and if you miss, it is an instant kill on
you. 3) There are no checkpoints in Spec Ops, so take your time 
especially on Veteran mode.

Thats done, lets move on.

Dust to Dust intels (3)

44) After entering the hotel go up the right escalator
turn around so you're facing the opposite direction and it
will be on the bar in front of you.
45) After taking down the helicopter in the elevator run
out of the elevator and go left. It should be on the poker
table in that room.
46) (whew)! When you see a grand piano it is on a bar just
beyond the piano.

Scout Leader should pop after grabbing all the intels.

Outroduction/Thanks                                              (Outro.)

Well that about does it! if you follow all these tips you can hopefully
get to 1000G with minimal difficulty. I think thats about sais it all.
Good luck and happy hunting!

Thanks
First I'd like to thank my family for always encouraging me to try my
hardest. This may sound corny but it's the truth, without them this
guide might not have been written.

Next I'd like to thank the developers/creators of this wonderful game.
Though I may rage, don't take too seriously. (Just patch the dang MP7)!

Third I'd like to thank Gamefaqs.com. Not only for accepting my
ramblings from time to time but also for being there for all gamers who
just need to know how to get that item or beat that boss. God only know
how much they've saved me in strategy guides.

Last I'd like to thank you, dear Reader. Without you, Gamefaqs would be
nothing and I'd be out of a hobby.

Later!
