During COD Next, Activision confirmed that Special Ops would return for Modern Warfare 2. As usual, the mode will be co-op focused and task players with completing specific objectives.

This time, Spec Ops focuses more on players on the ground or providing air/sniper support. The new dichotomy also means you’ll have two very different ways of playing each mission, effectively doubling their number.

The original game let you play these missions solo and featured twenty-three separate missions. We don’t know if that will still hold true for the remake’s spec Ops Missions.

Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops Details

While the Modern Warfare 2 Spec Ops mode hasn’t been discussed too much, we know a few details about it thanks to COD Next and the COD Blog.

Activision released a screenshot from Spec Ops, which you can see above. They also tweeted about the mode, saying 2-player missions would be available “at launch,” potentially meaning 1 or 4-player missions could be introduced down the line.

We also know that the mode will continue the story from the main campaign. This is a first for the series, outside of side stories often told in Zombies Mode.

Modern Warfare 2 Other Modes

As well as Special Ops, we’ve heard a lot about other side modes and playlists that will might be coming back for Modern Warfare 2.

For a starter, we know that Ground War is definitely coming back. In fact, it’s been given a bit of an overhaul with the new Invasion game mode. This new take on Team Deathmatch makes them more extensive than they’ve ever been before.

On the other side of the coin, Zombies Mode won’t come back this time. More effort has been put into the competitive modes, so there probably weren’t development resources to spare.

Yes, Special Ops is coming back for MW2 with a few changes to the formula of previous titles.

Could we have more Spec Ops mission post launch?

The wording of a certain Tweet from Activision seemed to be hinting at the possibility of 1 or 4-player spec ops mission becoming available post-launch.

It’s nothing concrete yet, but assuming the game sells well enough, we could see more missions with more players down the line.
