Special Ops is Infinity Ward's traditional 3rd mode. Where Treyarch has the more popular Zombies, IW have their Spec Ops. And while it has been a substantially less popular mode than Zombies, it still provided some great missions over the years.
Infinity Ward nailed this mode when they first introduced it back in 2009, but when they tried to remake it for Modern Warfare 2019, it was almost as terrible as the maps. Rumor has it they're going to try with Spec Ops again in Modern Warfare II, but we don't have high-hopes, we'd rather just see them focus on the new DMZ mode. However, if they are bringing it back, then these are the kinds of missions they want to use for inspiration. Here are the best Spec Ops missions in Call of Duty history. Spoiler alert, they're mostly from the best CoD of all time: MW2.
