Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered

About

Developed by Beenox, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered brings players back to the classic single player campaign from the original COD: Modern Warfare 2. This also includes the free Ghost Operator bundle.

Plot and location

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered includes Acts I to III and the bonus Museum level. The story itself takes place after the events depicted in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Players take on the role of Task Force 141’s operators Soap, Price, and Ghost to hunt the new leader of the Ultranationalists, Vladimir Makarov.

Their missions will take Task Force 141 from war-torn Afghanistan to Rio de Janeiro, leading to defending Washington D.C. from a full-scale Russian invasion. However, not everything is as it seems as a conspiracy within may lead to fatal consequences.

Gameplay

The free Ghost Operator bundle included in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered has some cool features for fans of Lieutenant Simon Riley. This includes the Underwater Demo Team (UDT) iconic look for the Ghost Operator. Other features are the Ghost emblem, two Weapon Blueprints (Task Force and One for One), a Weapon Charm (Flippers), a special Finishing Move (Belly Flop), Voice Quip (Stay Frosty), Calling Card (No Easy Days), and 2 Battle Pass tier skips.

Special Melees – A feature added to the Remastered campaign. This allows for players to sneak up behind certain enemies and perform a special animation. This can be performed by holding the melee button after successfully sneaking undetected. This is similar to Finishing Moves, but can only occur at specific locations and enemies in the campaign.

  • Cliffhanger- 1) Roach will use his ice axes to kill the first two guards and 2) Roach will kick a sleeping guard off the chair and smack his head on a nearby table.
  • The Only Easy Day… Was Yesterday – Roach will slit the throat of a guard leaning on the railing. This is just prior to the breaching sequence.
  • Just Like Old Times – Soap will slit the throat of a guard having a smoke. This can be triggered after a group of Shadow Company patrols exit the cave.
  • Endgame – 1) The first pilot trying to get away from the helicopter wreckage. Soap will do a throat slit. 2) The second pilot will try to pull out his sidearm, but is apparently empty. Soap will knock the pistol away and jab his knife in this pilot’s neck.
