Read on to discover all of the missions at your disposal in Modern Warfare’s Spec Ops mode.
Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops Mission List
At launch, Activision plans on three Spec Ops missions being available to enjoy. We’ve listed those three missions below, along with a brief description of what each mission entails.
Low Profile is a stealth-based mission that tasks you with sneaking around a compound filled with enemies. Trying to go in guns blazing is a death sentence, so make sure you capitalize on your sneakiness.
You’re equipped with a silenced handgun and a silenced sniper rifle, so use them well. You should abide by the law of the sniper for best success. Get to high ground, and don’t let anyone sneak up on you. Only move forward when you’re sure you’ve cleared a section.
In Denied Area, you’re tasked with destroying four SAM sites to allow air support into an area. There’s not much to this one, it’s a much more straightforward mission than you’ll find in Low Profile. You start the mission with the element of surprise on your side, so try to take advantage of it.
Your first task should be to find some cover and start taking out your enemies. Using silenced weapons to take out all of the support guarding your first target is a viable strat, but so is just running in and taking them all down.
Once you’ve completed your first SAM site, you’ll be able to rely on some limited air support to help you take out the other three sites.
Defender: Mt Zaya
The final mission of Spec Ops mode is similar to classic survival/horde mode from previous COD titles and various other FPS Games. You’re dropped into a fort and have to take out the surrounding enemies, defending the fort as best you can.
There are plenty of enemies to deal with, but you should try and take them out in stages if you want any chance of clearing them all. In most cases, you and your partner should take on separate groups of enemies close enough to provide backup for each other.
