Collect all 18 Rorke files.
There are a total of 18 Rorke Files in Call of Duty Ghosts. Finding all of them will earn you the Audiophile trophy or achievement. Each mission has exactly one of these collectibles (18 missions in total). After picking up a file it will be saved immediately and automatically. Even if you die, you don’t need to collect it again. You can also quit out to the main menu without having to reach the next checkpoint. Your progress will still be saved.
The game provides two types of progress trackers to see which Rorke Files you have already obtained. You can either go to “Campaign” and “Rorke Files” in the main menu, or pause the game during a mission and look at the bottom right corner.
If you miss a collectible, you can still get it after beating the story via mission select.

Rorke File Locations Text Guide
Take down both attack helicopters in Brave New World.
Mission 2: Brave New World
After defeating the enemies at the gas station, you will have to fight your way through an old sewer. When you reach the end of this area, you will be attacked by two helicopters. The first (smaller) helicopter will fly away after a moment, so take it down quickly! There are several MAAWS rocket launchers on some crates. Get one of them and when shooting, you must keep aiming at your target to guide the missile. Shoot down both helicopters using the rocket launcher to unlock this trophy / achievement.
Every shot with the remote sniper hits a person or vehicle.
Mission 4: Struck Down
During this mission you will have to use the remote sniper 4 times. You cannot miss these opportunities, as it’s required to progress in the mission. Only fire when your crosshairs turn yellow. It will be a guaranteed hit.
In the first sequence, you must kill at least one enemy and your team will do the rest.
In the second sequence, you must take out 4 enemies with rocket launchers.
In the third sequence, you must clear an airfield and kill several enemies.
In the fourth sequence, you must take out the 3 enemies that fire their MGs from vehicles.
If you miss a shot, you can pause the game and restart the checkpoint at any time. Even if you restart, you will still earn the trophy / achievement in the end.
It Came from Below!
Kill 6 enemies with the knife while underwater in “Legends Never Die”.
Mission 6: Legends Never Die
There are three different locations during this mission where you can kill enemies while underwater. The water is just waist-deep, so you have to crouch and then kill enemies with your knife. You should definitely play on the easiest difficulty “Rookie” for this. Enemies will still be shooting at you when you go underwater and you have to get really close to them to perform knife kills.
Just kill everyone standing in water. Run up to them, crouch and use the knife.
Kill sleeping enemy in face down rappel section
Mission 7: Federation Day
After uploading the virus in the server room, you will have to rappel down the building. There are two enemies on a balcony. Kill them first to avoid being detected. Two floors below that balcony is an enemy sleeping in a chair. Shoot him through the window to unlock this trophy / achievement.
Catch the photocopier with your face.
Mission 7: Federation Day
Towards the end of this mission, you will rappel down a building. That’s the third time you rappel during this mission. It’s after you turn off the elevators to stop enemy forces from closing in on your position. Once you interact with the rope, just don’t press anything and wait for a couple of seconds. The photocopier will fall straight onto your face.
Burn Baby Burn
Destroy 80 Fuel containers.
Mission 8: Birds of Prey
In the beginning of this mission, you will be using a helicopter and have to take out lots of enemies in a town. There are fuel containers at almost every building. Some of them are on rooftops, some are around houses and some are even on bridges. Simply destroy as many of them as you can.
Finish the mission without breaking stealth.
Mission 9: The Hunted
You will have to finish the entire mission from start to finish without ever being spotted by an enemy. In the first part of the mission you are on your own. Stick to the left side of the area and watch the radar. Nearby enemies will be shown with red dots on the radar. Feel free to kill enemies if needed. Always stay crouched to avoid being noticed. In the second area you will see some burning rubble. Move slowly and stick to the left side again until you reach your team. From this point on, you will only need to follow your teammates and do exactly what they tell you to do.
If you are being spotted, you can restart the checkpoint and will still get the trophy / achievement in the end.
Drop 8 vehicles into ice holes.
Mission 10: Clockwork
At the very end of this mission, you will have to escape an enemy facility. While one of your teammates is driving, you will gain control over a grenade launcher turret. Lots of vehicles will come after you. Instead of shooting them directly, you will have to shoot a little bit in front of them to blow a hole into the ground. If they drive over it, the vehicle and its crew will be incapacitated which counts towards this trophy / achievement. Do this to 8 different vehicles before reaching the end of the mission.
Piece of Cake
Storm the common room and kill everyone without taking damage on Veteran.
Mission 11: Atlas Falls
After using the grapnel gun you will have to kill a bunch of enemies and come to the common room. You will now have to breach the door (part of the story, cannot be missed). Breach it and throw all of your flashbangs and frag grenades to kill everyone inside. Don’t waste any grenades before reaching this room. You’ll need every single one. If you don’t kill all enemies with your grenades, then let your teammates do the rest. They will also kill enemies for you and cannot die. If you are being hit, restart the checkpoint.
Keep in mind that you have to play on veteran difficulty to unlock this trophy or achievement. Veteran difficulty is available from the beginning on and you can change the difficulty settings via mission select.
Blow the pressure valves on your first attempt.
Mission 11: Atlas Falls
Towards the end of this mission, you will have to use a console to regulate the pressure of some valves. It’s part of the story and cannot be missed. There will be three bars on the screen. You need to keep them in the middle, so they are colored green.
Use the left stick to move the bars up and down to keep them in the green zone. It doesn’t matter if they drop to the yellow zone for just a moment, as long as you bring them back to the green zone quick enough.
David & Goliath
Take down the LCS on the first go.
Mission 12: Into the Deep
About halfway through the mission, you will have to use a torpedo to take down a warship. While guiding the torpedo you will automatically be using thermal vision and can see a red part on the side of the ship. Hit this red part to destroy the LCS immediately.
Cog in the machine
Kill 5 enemies without being detected before infiltrating Black Zone.
Mission 13: End Of The Line
This can be done in the very beginning of the mission. You must quietly kill the first 5 enemies in this mission by yourself, without being seen or heard. Kills from your teammates don’t count. You can shoot enemies with your silenced weapons to stay undetected.
•The first kill will happen automatically when you jump down a ledge.
•The second enemy is on the train yard.
•The third enemy is together with three other enemies. Wait until your teammates arrive and shoot either one of the enemies. Your team will take out the rest.
•The fourth and fifth enemy are behind the gate that your teammate opens for you. Prone and kill both of them very quickly before your teammates “steal” the kills from you.
Destroy 21 slot machines.
Mission 14: Sin City
During this mission you will come to an egyptian casino. Lots of enemies will ambush you there. Destroy all 20 slot machines by shooting their screens. At the end of the casino is a gate. One of your teammates will raise it for you. Go under it and you will reach a broken escalator. Before you walk down the escalator, look at the opposite side of the room to find five more slot machines. Destroy their screens and the trophy / achievement will unlock.
End of your rope
Cut a grappling hook rope with an enemy on it.
Mission 15: All of Northing
In the beginning of the mission you will have to clear the flight deck of enemies. After that, you will have to pick up the Osprey targeting control. As soon as you pick it up, enemies will start attacking the ship from the side. They will come in dinghies and throw grappling hooks up the ship. Wait until an enemy starts climbing the rope and cut it with your knife.
Take out 3 out of 3 helicopters with the remote missile.
Mission 16: Severed Ties
Very shortly after the mission starts, you will see a prompt on the screen that says “press Δ (Y on Xbox) to switch to guided rounds”. Once you see this, attack helicopters will come in. Do as you are told and switch to guided rounds to shoot three of them down.
They look like ants
Destroy all enemy ground targets and kill no allies with the rods.
Mission 17: Loki
At the very end of this mission, you will be controlling weapons from outer space. You can see the exact blast radius when aiming. The ammo is unlimited, so shoot as often as you want. Take out the foot soldiers first and then destroy the main targets. Especially at the end you should pay attention and carefully kill all enemies before blowing up the final target.
Don’t aim anywhere near you allies or they will die. If you believe to have killed some by accident, restart the checkpoint right away.
Shoot the grapple guys off the side of the train.
Mission 18: The Ghost Killer
After killing the first enemies in this mission, you will be attacked by several helicopters. A little bit further the grapple guys will climb up the train. There are four of them, but for this trophy / achievement you only need to kill two. You must kill them before they get up the train. Restart the checkpoint if you need to try again.
Reach the exfil chopper with 1 minute and 30 seconds or more remaining on the clock.
This can only be done in Extinction Mode. To unlock extinction you need to finish the first mission of the campaign on any difficulty or reach level 5 in multiplayer. It’s basically an alien mode where you have to use a drill to destroy alien hives.
You must destroy all 12 hives to unlock the computer that initiates the exfiltration countdown. The computer will spawn right next to the last hive and all players have to activate it simultaneously. You do now have 2 minutes and 30 seconds to get back to the helicopter in the starting area.
Meteorite barricades will block your way, but they will automatically fall apart after 30 seconds and there are only 2 of them. You will also be attacked by many Rhinos. They are heavily armored, so use armor breaking ammo to take them down. Fully upgraded sentry guns will come in very handy here. They distract and at the same time damage the Rhinos. If your health gets low, deploy fully upgraded armor vests. Armor can be especially useful if you are running and a Rhino attacks you from behind. So every player should have armor vests in their loadout to avoid going down.
