Circus Tour Modern Warfare Achievement Guide

For those who are unfamiliar with the Circus Tour achievement, this is what you're going to need to do: "Kill at least one enemy while inside The Reading Place, Aural Chic, and both Subway undergrounds." From the name of the locations that you need to access for Circus Tour, it might already be quite obvious that this achievement has to be completed on the Piccadilly map on Mission 2.

To cap that over, you're going to have to get rid of a bunch of enemies in the locations mentioned above. You'll want to be first on the scene so that the enemies are picked off at your own hand, and this might be toughest when you're having to deal with the underground entrance that plays host to someone who's about to blow themselves up: you need to get to them before they kill themselves. Here are some of our tips for the various locations:

  • Reading Place: if you have a bullet hose equipped, now is the time to spray and pray. You're gonna want to take everyone out in the bookstore for it to count.
  • Aural Chic: there'll just be one enemy here that you have to eliminate, which should be an easy kill. Pivot immediately to find the entrance to the first subway. 
  • First subway entrance: you're going to have to watch out for the suicide bomber here. Keep your distance but snipe him once you spot him and deal with the other enemies later if you have to. There should only be a handful.
  • Second subway entrance: watch out for the ones who have civilians cornered and deal with them first, you'll only have to knock out four in total here.

If you follow our Circus Tour Modern Warfare achievement guide, taking out these enemies should be easy as pie. You don't have to be on any particular difficulty to get this achievement, so feel to tune it all the way down if you don't want a headache. Need a hand with anything else in Modern Warfare?
