8 Video Game Achievements You Cheated To Unlock

7. Mile High Club - Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered

If ever there was a sentence guaranteed to bring out even ardent Call Of Duty fans in a cold sweat it's the words "Mile High Club on Veteran"

While running through this brilliantly designed and fiendishly tense section on lower difficulties is chaotic enough to make you feel like Mission Impossibles Ethan Hunt, on the hardest difficulty going, it's enough to make you feel like a "hunt" as you get beaten up by this ludicrously difficult level.

From start to finish the player has mere minutes to down a truckload of baddies all the while avoiding their laser like accuracy. It's enough to make you want to pull your hair out, and for some it's just too close quarters to allow them a fair chance.

Still, some devious players soon found out a rather delicious exploit on the Remastered version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - that by playing the game on Recruit, then closing the application on console right before the final showdown, loading things back up on Veteran for the final shot meant you could skirt the challenge almost entirely.

Now I'm sure that many will have gotten this 'cheev legitimately, but there is a cavalcade of less competent players who also netted this trophy through nefarious means.
