    One of the great pillars of the new Infinity Ward production is also one of the most interesting new features of this chapter. Spec Ops combines the stunning story of the main Call of Duty: Modern warfare campaign with the vibrant and vibrant online community of players from around the world under one name. These missions connect intriguing operations together that offer an extension of the main story experience. If you are a veteran of the franchise you will also find the Classic Special Ops, shorter missions that wink at the old chapters. To Play the Spec Ops you will have to select them from the Co-op menu of the main menu and after a small movie here's what you will face.



    The history of the Special Ops

    The city of Verdansk was conquered by a group of terrorists. By indiscriminately wiping out all those who try to stop their ideals of corruption, this global organization has gained economic, intelligence, hardware and weapons advantages, some of which could threaten the peace of the entire globe. Regardless of their differences, Kate Laswell of the CIA and FSB Sergeant Kamarov have decided to unify some soldiers of the Alliance and the Coalition under a single name: Armistice (The Armistice).

    Operations Analysis

    After choosing which side to enter the battle, you will be sent to the Verdansk field alongside 3 other operators, thus forming a team that will have the objective of completing the "Ops", special multi-level missions that can be faced in many different ways.



    At launch, your team will need to:

    • Infiltrate, track down and eliminate the terrorist network of Almalik, a landowner in the pay of Al-Qatala, in theHEADHUNTER OPERATION
    • Assault the operational base of Almalik and mark the weapons in its possession for an air attack, removing the traces of Al-Qatala in Verdansk, in theKUVALDA OPERATION
    • Go beyond the enemy line and extract Dr. Linda Morales, use her information to hunt down "Mr. Z", a sidekick and supplier of Al-Qatala's new arsenal, in theOPERATION PALADIN
    • Infiltrate the Al-Qatala-occupied Verdansk airport, board the hijacked 747 and retrieve its cargo in theTRANSVERSE WIND OPERATION
    • Collect information on the current position of the MAGE informant and investigate a "large cargo" departing from Verdansk as indicated in its reports in theOPERATION HERALD
    • Reach the railway yard of the El Traficante train full of explosives, recall it and detonate it in theSULFUR OPERATION

    The story won't end with these six Spec Ops either; it is already known that there will be several free expansions, the first of which, very full-bodied, on December 3, which will mark the beginning of the first official season, and with each season new and stimulating Spec Ops will arrive that will deepen and expand the events of our heroes.
    In these operations you will have the possibility to customize the equipment, just like in all other multiplayer modes and in addition you will have three Ammo and a role to define:
    Ammunition: Just like the kill streak in multiplayer modes, before the start of an operation, you will have the option of equipping three ammo to use using the points earned in the game. Initially you will only have the grenades, armor and classic ammunition available. The more you play this mode, the more you will earn points to spend, via the pause menu or between operations, to buy increasingly stronger ammunition such as UAV, Cannoneer or even the super tough Juggernaut. Also during matches, additional Ammo will be scattered around the field to be found and used.



    the Roles: they basically work like field upgrades; an operator can choose from six different roles, each with a unique passive skill and an active skill that recharges over time. An example is the "Heavy" role which has double the ammo of weapons in the "Launchers" category and can give the entire team heavy protective armor as an active ability.

    Quick Tips on Operations

    Operations revolve around a group of four players who must collaborate in the way they prefer. Know that the most important thing to take into consideration is the fact that walking around alone, like lone wolves, will make it extremely difficult to get to the end of the mission. Whether you have your own team or are part of an online team with matchmaking, communication and team play can do wonders in Special Ops. This is really important when one of your teammates dies as you always have a chance to revive him. If the distance is too great it will be very difficult to do this. Another reason that makes the Spec Ops is the fact of having extreme freedom of approach to missions. You can face them openly or trying to infiltrate in silence, changing your equipment, ammunition and roles according to the different cases. Speaking of ammo and roles, be sure to build as diverse a team as possible before a mission begins. Better to have a team with multiple roles and different abilities than to have a "TANK" team, which attacks head-on.

    Cross-Level up: Sharing EXP between Special Ops and Classic Multiplayer
    In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Spec Ops share both unlocked gear and any progress made with multiplayer. Each operator or weapon experience point obtained in the Special Ops will also be obtained in the multiplayer and vice versa. You will be able to see the progress in the barracks and customize your identity, see the challenges, change operators and create new sets of equipment just like in multiplayer.

    Stay close to the Server
    Your team should stay as close to the server as possible to expedite the breach process. The more people there are near the server, the faster it will finish, allowing you to proceed quickly.

    Use the room as a strength
    The room where the server is located can also be used to your advantage as it only has two entrances.

    Look for Computers (Barracks, Warehouse, Warehouse)
    You can do these goals in any order. However, since the barracks are closest to the server room, we recommend that you start with those.

    Disable the Jammer signal
    Stay close to the jammer to increase the breach speed
    It is best to stay as close to the violation signal as possible. The more players there are, the faster the signal will be hacked.

    Transport Dr. Morales
    You can only shoot without aiming when carrying it
    You can't even aim down or throw grenades. Have a teammate precede you to clear the area in front of you.

    Defend Dr. Morales
    Use the shield turrets to hold the territory
    Look for the crates with the shield turrets. You can place them while you wait for the helicopter to help you against the hordes of enemies that will attack you.

    The suicide bombers will appear when you defend Dr. Morales. Immediately shoot them in the head before they get too close and their explosion can hurt you.

    Support the Havoc

    Before leaving Home Base

    Put silencers on the weapons
    Before leaving Home Base, be sure to place silencers on your weapons. This will allow you to be more difficult to track down in the first part of the mission. It is recommended that you stay in hiding as long as you can during the mission.

    Deactivate the enemy communicators on top of the roof
    Shoot the enemies before reaching the communicators
    Shoot the unsuspecting enemies to make your way to the roof. They will immediately alert their allies if they see you. As soon as you have a clear view, take them out.

    Stay close to the communicators
    Be sure to stay close to the communicators while you hack them. The more people close to you, the faster you will copy files.

    Hacking the central communicator terminal
    Watch out for juggernaut
    There will be more juggernauts in this area. It is advisable to focus the fire on them to bring them down quickly. Killing one will also allow you to get hold of their minigun.

    There is a secure room behind the communicators
    Use the small room behind the communicators as a safe spot. Enemies will try to enter, but you will have an easy time as there is only one entrance.

    Infiltrate the plane
    Use the means to reach the plane
    Use the quads near the tent to quickly reach the plane before it takes off. It will go down a ramp at some point, and at that moment you can go up it.

    Find the core
    Beware of time!
    Once on the plane, a timer will start to search for the core. You will have about 3 minutes to find the core and escape from the plane. Ready to run?

    You will fight in tight spaces
    Encounters in this section of the mission will take place in tight spaces. Use weapons that excel at short to medium range to get the better of the enemy.

    The core is in the lowest plane
    The core can be found in a warhead in the lowest plane of the plane. It will be just before the queue. Be sure to grab it and get out before 3 minutes.

    Destroy the hatch to escape from the plane
    Once you reach the end of the plane, look to your left to locate a hatch. Place the charge to open it and escape.

    Take down the enemy helicopter
    Use the launchers to destroy the helicopter
    Take out the launchers and use them against the enemy helicopter. Launchers like the JOKR are especially useful as they can block the target.

    Hold the territory
    You cannot shoot if you are carrying the core
    If you carry the core you will be unable to shoot in this section. Ask your companions to cover you. If you get killed you will obviously drop the core as well, make sure someone else catches it.

    Spec Ops Solution: Operation Herald

    Main points for the progress of the mission

    • Get ready with your team and listen to the briefing
    • advance to the three houses and look for information on the informant

    • Make your way to the next building and find more information
    • Hold your position while the information is decrypted
    • Head to the informant's location
    • Stop the convoy and retrieve the informant
    • Proceed to the extraction point and position the informant
    • once the informant has been picked up from the plane, go to home base
    • The mission ends when the whole team is safe

    Operation Herald: tips and tricks

    Things to remember before the mission
    Choose the offensive roles
    It would be better to choose roles that maximize the team's offensive capabilities. You will have to deal with many armored enemies such as chariots and juggernauts. One team member can be a medic, but the others need to focus on the offensive.

    Recommended roles

    • Breaker: Termite can melt armored enemies
    • assault: especially useful with many enemies together
    • Engineer: The drone is useful for knocking out vehicles, a common enemy in this mission
    • Medic: Can resurrect faster to get out of unpleasant situations

    Turn on voice chat
    it is better to keep the microphone on and communicate as the mission has many objectives. You will certainly have to be able to coordinate as best as possible to complete them all.

    Seek information

    Beware of cash and documents
    Watch out for cash and documents while defending the position. Scanning them will give you 30 seconds less scanning time. This will allow you to get to a safe spot faster.

    Beware of wire traps
    Pay close attention to the wire traps scattered throughout the buildings you explore. Triggering one will guarantee you immediate death. Move carefully and turn them off.

    Use buildings as choke points
    once inside the buildings you can use them as chokes to kill the enemies that will enter through the main doors or sometimes through the windows. Use this tactic to multiply your kills while defending.

    Assign a member of the Anti-Tank squad
    The wrecker and engineer can use their special abilities to quickly take down the tanks that shoot at you from outside the buildings. Both the termite and the drone can take out these armored vehicles quickly.

    Use launchers to cause a lot of damage to vehicles
    Otherwise you can take a PILA with you as part of your equipment to solve the tank situation yourself. If none of you have a launcher or a hermit, collect the enemy RPGs!

    Retrieve the informant
    Use the kill streak to stop the convoy.
    The convoy will move around the map making it difficult for you to retrieve the informant. However, using a kill streak such as the cruise missile will allow you to easily destroy the convoy as it is headed by you. Don't worry, the informant won't do anything.

    Carrying the informant will slow down the movements
    Carrying the informant will not allow you to move easily nor to aim the objectives. Better get your teammates ahead of you to clear the territory in front of you as you carry the informant.

    Head to the extraction point
    Focus the fire on the juggernauts
    There will be some juggernauts blocking your way to the extraction point. Focus your fire on them to eliminate the worst threat of the whole mission.

    Reach the Home Base
    After the informant is extracted, you will need to make your way to home plate. Focus your attention on running and avoid firefights. Equip yourself with a bulletproof vest to absorb as much damage as possible.

    Spec Ops Solution: Operation Sulfur

    Main points for the progress of the mission

    • Get ready with the team and listen to the briefing
    • Advance towards the quarry while avoiding the enemy mortars
    • hacked the three communication matrices of AQ
    • Proceed to the control room
    • Defeat the three Juggernauts to get the three keys
    • Go back to the control room to call the train
    • Go back to the quarry and wait for the train to arrive
    • Get on the train and place the C4
    • Gather the team and prepare for the escape
    • Destroy El Traficante's helicopter
    • Survive to the end

    Operation Sulfur: tips and tricks

    Things to remember before the mission
    Defense and support roles are highly recommended
    Half of the mission will be to get and protect three points with the team. These spots will be studded with enemies so your best bet is to bring defensive and support equipment with you.

    Recommended roles

    • Heavy: Support the team with armor
    • Demoman: The termite can take out groups of enemies with a single throw
    • Medic: Revives squadmates killed by constant enemy fire

    Turn on voice chat
    it is better to keep the microphone on and communicate as the mission has many objectives. You will certainly have to be able to coordinate as best as possible to complete them all.

    Head to the quarry
    Destroy the teams at the mortars
    Use a sniper rifle or ranged scope to kill the enemies lurking in the middle of the quarry to stop them bombarding you with mortars.

    Hack the three communication matrices of AQ
    Use the portable cover
    You can position yourself guarding an active communication matrix and use your shield to protect yourself from enemies attempting to stop the breach's progression.

    Use the smoke bombs to cover yourself
    Another useful tactic is to use smoke bombs to avoid enemy suppression of your position. Also set up a grenade reload house to fill the area with smoke.

    Survive the third violation
    during the third violation you will be attacked by suicide bombers and elite soldiers. Shoot the suicide bombers in the head before they get too close.

    Fight the 3 Juggernauts
    Use the shotguns to defeat the Juggernauts
    Shotguns do a lot of damage to juggernauts unless they're too far apart. Kill the 3 juggernauts to get the 3 keys to advance.

    Riot shields work well too!
    You can use the shield to protect you and your team from minigun hits. Be careful not to get too close to the juggernauts as their close attack can break through your defenses

    Open the train door and place the C4
    Control an enemy helicopter
    You can call a helicopter to support the team while obtaining the controller located in the third communication building of AQ. Beware of the helicopter's fuel and also the fact that you will be exposed to enemy fire during use.

    Survive and escape
    Advance slowly and survive
    Enemies will come in droves as the team attempts to escape. Use covers and avoid exposing yourself. Decide on a squad member who will cover you from side fire as you advance.
