Introducing Open Combat Missions
In these specially designed missions, you’ll deploy to wide-open locations and gear up with Supply Boxes, Armor Plates, Vests, and more. Their open-ended nature will allow you to take a stealthy approach to completing the objective, or if you’d prefer to charge head-on into danger behind the wheel of a vehicle, you can do that too. At the start of these missions, you’ll deploy as a designated member of Task Force 141: Farah, Ghost, Gaz, Soap, or Price. Each Operator will be given a default starting Loadout based around the mission’s current narrative.
“When you go into an Open Combat Mission the first time, you’ll have a specific loadout. We want these to feel very seamless (to the campaign story),” Swenson says. “But once you’re playing the level, there’s a lot of opportunities to find stuff, right? So, there’s crates and weapons that you can pick up, but also tactical’s and lethal’s, even Armaments (that Multiplayer Operators know as “Killstreaks”) that you can find in the world. And once you have these weapons, tacticals, lethals, they become part of your inventory.”
