Rumour: Modern Warfare Special Ops to feature open world, over 80 missions

2 min read

The fan favourite co-op mode from Modern Warfare 2 and 3 seems to be back with all kinds of bells and whistles to keep players involved.


Arguably one of the best parts of Modern Warfare 2 and 3 were the Special Operations missions. I was never much for the competitive multiplayer of COD, but I spent ages running those missions with friends, trying to complete them as quickly and seamlessly as we could. For the uninitiated, Spec Ops was a separate mode in MW that took existing levels and added new and more complicated objectives into the fold to remix old playthroughs. Hell, they even added in entirely new levels exclusive to Spec Ops which were often even better! Which is why I’m so titillated by the rumours coming out of The Game Revolution. Look, I don’t need to remind you to take this all with a pinch of salt, but if these details prove to be true, Spec Ops sounds like a great time.


Firstly, Spec Ops will take place in an open world, allowing you and your friends to run around and trigger missions within the environment at your own pace. No details yet on the contents of this world, for all we know it could just be a small-ish hub to run around, but Captain Price will allegedly be involved in it somehow and there will be more than 80 missions to embark on with more being planned as post-launch DLC. Missions will involve a range of unique objectives such as rescuing hostages, escorting NPC’s (yay) and raining fire as an AC-130 gunman.


The map will have secrets and hidden pockets of resources that will contain ammo, killstreak rewards and armour not dissimilar to the implementation of armour in many battle royale games. Speaking of which, a battle royale component may be available on this same map. Completing missions will net you money that will carry over into future expeditions allowing players to buy new and better equipment. If all this turns out to be true than the Spec Ops mode for Modern Warfare sounds like it could be a fantastic way to play with friends. The full list of rumours can be found here.

    Don’t get my hopes up like this COD. You’ve hurt me too much in the past… yet I keep coming back for Modern Warfare.

    I hated every COD game after COD 4. I thought as a franchise this was dead to me. I even mocked Activision for years for basically pooping into a game box and selling that excrement on a yearly basis, but… lately they’ve been making all the right mating sounds.

    After the crap EA pulled with Battlefield Vagina, I want a real man’s game, and I think Modern Warfare has just enough testostorone and sheer manliness to be like digital viagra. The doctor approves… and while I will never preorder. This game will be bought.

    I can’t believe it Activision, you managed to pull me back in, you capitalised on EA’s mistake. Good on ya, you deserve my money. But in the immortal words of Ru Paul… “Don’t fuck it up”


    If Battlefield Vagina was a person it would look this guy, just a bug-eyed soy-filled nu-male toxic masculine incel.
    Ugh, I just want to punch the screen now. Look at that face, don’t you just want to beat him up?
