Call of Duty: Black Ops III Trophy List Reveals New ‘Realistic’ Difficulty

on October 5, 2015 9:56 AM

The full trophy list for Call of Duty: Black Ops III has been unveiled, and while it doesn’t stray much from the typical milestones covered in a Call of Duty game, there are a few interesting tidbits to uncover. Some trophies make mention of a ‘Dead Ops Arcade II’ mode, referencing the top-down shooter mode found in the first Black Ops title. It sounds like this mode will be re-imagined for Black Ops III.

More interestingly, a new difficulty for the single-player campaign was seemingly revealed in the trophy list. The individual trophies for campaign missions list that they can be cleared on Hardened, Veteran or Realistic difficulty.


It is currently unknown what the new Realistic mode may feature, but a lack of checkpoints, healing and harder to acquire to ammo may all be safe guesses.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III launches for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 6, 2015.
