Modern Warfare 2 Special Ops Alpha Missions
Alpha Special Ops Mission 1
Clear all of the enemy targets as fast as possible. Shooting civilians will prevent you from getting 3 stars.
1 Star: Less than 5 civilians killed.
2 Stars: Less than 45 seconds, less than 5 civilians killed.
3 Stars: Less than 35 seconds, no civilians killed.
IW Best Time: 0:22.60
Here is a 33:55 sec pit run on the easiest of Special Ops missions to do on veteran level. I do not do this very fast but it was within the timelimit for 3 stars. To do it faster u need to line the targets up back to back for 1 shot. Also make sure u dont run out of ammo like I did at the end, had to finish the last one of with my knife.
Method to complete course:
1. Shoot first three targets going from left too right, although for some reason I always go for the middle one first but go from left to right as quick as u can.
2. There is a civilian in front of one of the next enemy targets. Wait for the enemy out of the way, then shoot both hostile targets before continuing.
3. At all times keep moving forward. A good thing to do is to turn down your volume on this mission. The instructions u get from the ranger are a pain and put u off what u are doing. Shoot the enemy target in front of you, then look up to the top of the buildiong. You will see 2 enemy targets. Take out the enemy on the right first then the one on the left. Finally take out the target in the middle window. As you're running towards the final target at the door, reload, then knife the target to the left
4. There are two enemy targets to the right and one straight in the doorway. Go forward and get the one in front of the door, then turn right and get the other two.
Reload again, go up the stairs and knife the enemy target standing in front of u. Make sure u switch your weapons whilst going upstairs.
5. Next, there are four enemy targets along with two civilian ones, shoot all four enemies, (you can align both shots, so one shot takes down two of them). Then reload or switch then go down to the final area.
6. Shoot enemy target to the right, then get to the right of the car. When you are there, you can shoot two enemy targets at the same time. There is one final one to the very left then continue
7. Take out the last two enemy targets then sprint to the finishing line.
A final comment before my video
All it takes to do this mission is a simple walk through the map checking out positions and practicing the target line up, which I failed on this run, hence the score. Anyway,
Alpha Special Ops mission 2
Eliminate the following:
Regular 1 star: 3 infantry waves, 1 jeep and 1 truck.
Hardened 2 stars: 4 infantry waves, 2 jeeps and 1 truck.
Veteran 3 stars: 5 infantry waves, 3 jeeps and 2 trucks.
IW Best Time: 1:55.5
How the hell that time was gained for this mission I dont know, bet its not a veteran score, likely to be a regular run, anyway
On regular settings u will get access to preditor missles straight away. All other settings u have to wait until wave 2 to get the preditor. Start off by looking behind you and getting the claymores and the LMG with heartbeat sensor. Plant one claymore near the ladder to the roof of the building you start on and place another at the top of the stairs. Lie on the ground to the right of two boxes and start sniping the enemy, the first wave is the hardest. Use cover as much as possible and remain in crouched and prone position as and whenever possible. Get into the habit of checking your heartbeat sensor to see where any remaining hostiles are. They are sneaky buggers and will try to get behind u on the roof whilst u r sniping. So listen for the mines going off as this will alert u to their presence.
You now have control of preditor missiles, referred to in radio chat as AGM. Lie prone to use preditor when u can , as u r very vunerable to attack whilst aiming the missile. You get an unlimited number of these missiles but after using one, you may not launch another for a set period of time. Aim for the Jeep with the missile then continue sniping the enemies until you get another predator and use that to finish off the remaining enemies.
The remaining waves are the same strategy, remain under cover at all times, use preditor on vehicles, the primary targets and play defensively by watching your back and keep the stairs protected from intruders.
Here is my run on the alpha special ops mission Sniper Fi.
My key point to take onboard when doing this mission are as follows:
1. Wave 1 is a shooting gallery and can get very hard on veteran if you dont place yourself in the right defensive position. Hide prone between the two metal boxes and use the large storage container to hide and recover if u get hit too much or need to reload or fire preditor during waves 2-5.
2. Watch out for the gaurds who go onto the roof top adjacent to u. The times them buggers have got me is unreal. Try to stop them getting up there if u can.
3. There are two major spawn points to focus on. Right in the far top right corner and underneath the garage roof. You can do wave one by focusing on one of the points or position yourself to do them both, more hectic though and the Barrett is not designed for rapid close quarters combat. Choose a good secondary weapon most people use the LMG I prefer either to use the desert eagle or p20. You must practice switching weapons fast, using stun grenades and not using the preditor when there is less than 4 enemy left, when that happens defend your position and wait for them to come to us unless u can get a clear shot.
4. Use the preditor straight away on enemy trucks or large groups of troops. Another good thing to do is use the preditor on oil tanks which explode taking alot of enemy with it.
5. Final point is not to focus on getting this mission done quickly, its more about survival than who can do it the quickest. On the final wave place more claymores on the back fence facing inwards. The reason for this I have found is that if the enemy can see the red light coming from the mine they will send up grenades. The last thing u need when there is only 5 hostiles left on the final wave is a whole bunch of grenades coming at you. When u are at the position in the mission switch to secondary weapon if u dont have clear shots and wait. Its a right bugger when the last troop gets u with a grenade or single shot because your defense is weak.
Have fun trying it, if you havent already, and I hope u enjoy this video of me doing it in 7 mins. My record is 4:21:50. That day I was very fast with stun grenades and secondary weapon switching. Remember what they say in the pit "its quicker to switch your weapons rather than reloading". If u use the LMG keep an eye on the heartbeat sensor and try picking the last few off. If u find it hard to locate the last hostile use the preditor. Make sure u dont fire it too close to your position otherwise its all over.
Alpha Special Ops Mission 3
O Cristo Rendentor
Eliminate all hostiles without harming any civilians - easier than it sounds, but u can use frag grenades to clear enemies. Check my video. I have never killed a civilian with a grenade ever, played the map well over 100 times. So don’t be frightened to use them carefully. Don’t use them once u spawn civilians, wait until they disperse before throwing them.
1 Star: Regular, 30 enemies, no more than 5 civilian casualties
2 Stars: Hardened, 40 enemies and dogs, no more than 3 civilian casualties
3 Stars: Veteran, 50 enemies and dogs, no more than 2 civilian casualties
IW Best Time: 1:16.2
IMPORTANT POINT TO REMEMBER: Dogs come in either pairs or in 3 and spawn after every 10 frags. So on veteran u need 50 frags. Dogs come when enemy left count is 40, 30, 20 and 10.
Start off by collecting all four claymores near your starting position. I wouldn’t bother with the heartbeat sensor shotgun as there are more hostiles on the map than u need to frag and they keep spawning. So your hearbeat sensor is not that useful.
The TAR21 is by far the best weapon for this mission. There are two options, both work but 1 is hard.
The easy option is to run into the building, through the window on your left. Here u spawn a civilian run and hostiles. The enemy are either outside the back door or inside the house. So watch out when u fire as u could very easily hit the civilians. The thing u will find as u practice this map is its very easy to shoot a civilian. If u used the same shot on a hostile it would not do anything. So be careful when u spawn the civilians. If u go into the house defend it through all 4 windows and watch your back. At 40 enemies left u will get the first dog attack. Keep your back up against the wall and lie prone, either shoot the dogs or use claymores. Once u have cleared the first wave of dogs start moving clockwise around the map until u get to the back alley, here u can camp and take out the dogs easier.
The big negative issue about going clockwise around the map is large civilian spawns, attacking becomes hard so u end up defending and civilian targets are extremely easy to rack up. SO I find its much better to take the harder route around the map to avoid excessive civilian contact. The harder route being anti-clockwise after defending the front area where u originally spawn.
My strategy works well and if u are aggressive enough u can get a real good time using this method.
Stage 1. Defend your spawn point area, clear the first 10 hostiles so u get the first wave of dogs. Once the counter is at 40 get your back up against a wall, don’t go into a dog attack allowing them a 360 degree approach to u, cut their angle of attack down as much as possible. Remember dogs will not jump into windows, over walls or objects. They always come at u head on from a main entrance area, be it the front door of a building or open field. That is why u will need to reduce the angle of attack as much as possible, so the dogs have to come at u in one direction. Being out in the open during a dog attack is a nightmare if they are supported by troops.
Stage 2. Start moving anticlockwise around the map. You need to setup a defensive location in the central house, see my video. Once u get into this house defend it hard and use it for dog attacks, back up against the wall and u will get through the level OK. Start taking out all the red barrels as they are a nightmare and not worth keeping to get a multi-kill, they kill u more times than enough so clear them ASAP. Once the counter is down to 30 or less move out of the house and start moving in a anticlockwise direction. Remember to watch the counter once its down to 20, and 10 u are due for a dog attack.
Stage 3. Once u return to the safe house to defend against dogs, it is usually occupied by hostiles. Always stun grenade through window before entering the building. When your counter is down to 20 or less its time to move to the back alley, anticlockwise again around the map. You should find yourself at the back alley with around 12 hostiles remaining. Use the alley and small room where the machine gunner was for your final dog attack.
Stage 4. Once your counter is down to 8 hostiles remaining you have no more dogs to worry about, just focus your attention on any hostile sounds/taunts. Dont rely upon a heartbeat sensor as that always shows too many hostiles and its far better to use your senses to hunt down the final 8. I always find it best to head back to the front area where you spawned. By the time u get there the counter is usually around 1-2 left. Just check the alley ways and u will find a couple of easy targets.
Here is my run on the COD MW2 Special Ops Solo Veteran Mission O Cristo Rendentor.
My strategy for getting 3 stars on the famous dog mission. Best time for this veteran strategy for me is 8:55 average around 10 minutes, hardened 5:55 and regular is 1:54, dead easy regular no dogs
Alpha Special Ops Mission 4
Always use silenced weapons on this mission along with lots of cunning to slip past the hostile patrols. The patrols have dogs with them so watch out do not alert the dogs.
1 1 Star: Regular
2 2 Stars: Hardened
3 3 Stars: Veteran
IW Best Time: 0:43.65 - can be done with no kills but its very tricky to do that.
When the level begins, move up along the right side and head into the bushes ASAP. When you reach a tree that cannot be passed, wait here for the guards to pass by. Keep moving up the right side you will have to go around the rocks here. I always wait in the bushes and take out the last guard in the patrol.
When you reach a guard with a dog up on the left, and two guards on the right, cut into the center area. From here, move up along the left side. Up ahead is a group of guards and dogs. Let them go ahead, and trail them. Stay along the right.
When the group splits up, keep advancing on the right but stay far from dogs. Mount the elevated platform on the right; this allows you to bypass a couple guards near the fence. After the platform, switch to the left and advance slowly, and you should beat the level easily.
Here is my video of how to do Evasion spec ops mission on veteran setting.
The key to this mission is not to frag all the enemy. You need to stay undercover and reach the green smoke at the bottom of the hill. Kill only the enemies that I do and you will get the 3 stars. Try killing them all and watch your throat get ripped out by the dogs. Thats if you dont do them in the right order. With any patrol its important to take each person or dog out in the correct order so u dont alert anybody. Another point to remember is watch your ammo I forgot how many times I went into a situation with only 1 round then it was party time for the dogs. Keep reloading. My record score is 2:21, which is not this run, so if u can beat that then post your video here and lets see it.
Alpha Special Ops Mission 5
Eliminate the invading forces on the bridge to reach the safe zone.
1 1 Star: Regular
2 2 Stars: Hardened
3 3 Stars: Veteran
IW Best Time: 0:53.0
You start the mission in front of a selection of weapons. Choose whichever weapons u fancy using, keep in mind u do need lots of ammo.
After you've taken your time with choosing a gun, take cover behind a car and shoot the bulk of your enemies when they're dropping in via grappling rope. It's impossible to get all of them as they're coming down, so for the next part, just shoot and take cover. Also remember to be careful when hiding behind cars. If your enemies shoot your shield to much, it will explode. It's a pretty dangerous position to be in, so try to get behind a car that already exploded. It won't be the best shield, but it's not as dangerous as staying behind a burning car.
After you've pushed through most enemy forces, even more will drop in. Go through the same pattern until you reach the huge truck. Make sure there are no enemies behind you. If there are, you'll regret it afterward. After making sure all of your enemies are dead, go past the truck to experience the bridge tilting a little. It's impossible to run while the bridge is tilting, so just walk through the whole progress calmly until it stops. After this, keep running and you'll reach a place where the bridge is unnaturally tilting upwards. Jump up this part to see a helicopter and many more enemies. This is where it gets a little tougher.
You'll have to stay out of sight of your enemies while shooting down the helicopter with an RPG. Go back down the broken part of the bridge and hide behind the gurders. You can stand up front and take it out with the thumper if u are fast enough but best to play safe initially.
Using the RPG against the helicopter will usually take more than 1 shot, and it's normal to run out of ammo for your RPG. This shouldn't be a problem, as there are more RPGs a little ahead of you. Helicopters are also vulnerable to small arms fire and emptying a couple of mags into them will down them when done right. Keep blasting the helicopter. It'll take about five shots to go down. When it starts spiraling out of control, start to focus on the remaining hostiles on the bridge, beware there is a heavy hostile presence and it pays to hide and snipe for a minute or so, also use your grenades too to blow up any remaining vehicles. This should clear a few hostiles for you.
When you see the green smoke, you're close to the finish. Either keep shooting or make a run for the finish. Always becareful of hostiles hiding behind any wreckage, especially near the oil tanker and police car.
Hope u enjoy it and see it as one way to get 3 stars.
Good Luck with them all and if u want to add your own videos feel free to do so.
