Operation 40 and Vorkuta are not that hard to do, just take it slow, use cover and let the AI players kill some of the enemies, they will constantly rush forward most of the time. Don't save and quit in middle of a mission, cause the achievement might not pop because of that. This happened to me.

In the end of Executive Order there will be a long part with no checkpoints, you need to get to a room on the right side of the corridor and the enemies will respawn continuously, save some smoke grenades for this part.

The enemies can't respawn when they are alive inside the smoke cloud, also they mostly won't shoot you. I recommend saving at least 2 smoke grenades for this corridor. Throw the other one after you have reached the room on the right, then you will see a small room on the opposite of this room (far left of the long corridor). Lob the other grenade there and rush to this room. You might hit a checkpoint and after that, it is easy to finish the mission. Note: in this room there is usually a couple enemies there, so be ready.

Watch this video by NextGenTactics for more help.

COOM3Ryeah use the AI this wud be great if they did anything but the AI on ur team is so useless u may as-well play lonewolf style they dont even do anything when they cover fire. the enemy just laugh leave them and come straight for u with 3 shots max and u r dead sometimes even one cus they will hit u in the head the enemy r like aim bots pop out then get shot ... vet is wank it wud be better if ur AI did something except watch..

ResDogsMrPinkOne comment I'd like to add to the executive order video is save ur smoke nades. If u notice he burns all 4 at the elevator room and like he says he gets lucky in the final room. Throwing 1 smoke (or 2 max) in the elevator room works perfectly for moving up allowing u to use ur last 3 in the nightmare hallway to come. Also don't be afraid to use frags as u can usually pick up more off the dead bodies.

zhobanmisterman08: I hope you noticed that the person said that you should not Save and Quit otherwise the achievement might not pop because it happened to them. I would normally agree with you but this was blatantly put out there.

Hyp3rNova NLI saved and quit on Executive order because i could not take it anymore in the end. When i completed the mission i got the achievement.

ESX MilkinWhy do COD games have unlimited respawing enemies its so crap MW2 was could because when you killed them they actually stayed dead. Screw you Treyarch

HaTe N LiEzzWTF they expect me to pass the whole game without saving! WTFF i passed this whole 6 first missions and i didnt get shit!

Solid Snake18The last part of Executive Order on Veteran makes me want to bite my fingers off. So frustrating! Up until that point, Black Ops' veteran was challenging but doable. Then I hit this wall. I'll have to try again later.

Kovy88Yes, I completed the campaign veteran, that was definitely the hardest part. I recommend having 2 smoke grenades for that. The enemies have less time to respawn when they'r inside the smoke cloud and can't shoot you. Then is the time to rush forward. When you get to this small room on left side of the long corridor, it may hit a checkpoint. But there is usually at least 2 enemies there, one with a shotgun at least.

Smurf McGurfGODDAMNIT! I JUST BEAT EXECUTIVE ORDER ON VETERAN AND THE ACHIEVEMENT DIDN'T POP. Guess I have to do that stupid shit over again.

PrattalmightyI wanted to kick small children during the tunnel sequence but if you save four smoke grenades and once about to enter the tunnel with the room to the right; clear out first four or five guys, throw a smoke, then another in front of that, and so on until you get to a yellow cart at the left turn in the tunnel just past the war room and locker room you'll get a save point and life, once again, is sweet.
