    MW2 Trophies

    The trophies in Modern Warfare 2 are divided quite equally between the modes. Several will be earned as you progress through the single player campaign and another group can only be earned by completing the Spec Ops. Occasionally there are trophies which can be picked up in either mode. I have added links in to various walkthroughs that will offer more help with specific missions.
