The prologue to the campaign is fairly short and consists of only one real mission, being Crew Expendable. There are some important story details here, however, so be sure to pay attention. You officially start playing on Veteran at the end of F.N.G., where you get to choose the difficulty you'll be playing on. You can always replay a mission at any difficulty from the the main menu as well.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered | Veteran Campaign
|USP .45||The pistol you get after finishing up the firing range.|
|MP5||Placed at the start of the obstacle course, next to some flashbangs.|
|G36C||The first weapon you pick up from the armory.|
The level's intro consists of a soldier named Gaz giving Captain John Price a debrief on the current situation in regards to Russia's recent antics. After going over that, he tells Price the local news; a recruit named Soap has just arrived, and it's time for him to go through the introductory course.
This starting mission serves as a tutorial for the controls of the game. Follow the simple directions Gaz gives you, and then head outside to get to the next compound. Captain Price will mock your codename and tell you to climb the ladder to get to the obstacle course. Run through the course once to familiarize yourself with the layout and follow Price's directions. When you finish, you'll notice that your time is reduced partially based on your accuracy. This is going to be very important in attempting one of the hardest achievements in the game, where you need to finish with a time under 15.1 seconds. When attempting for the achievement, reload your weapon before climbing back up the ladder. This will allow the checkpoint that occurs to always have your gun loaded, which will save you actual time when reloading the checkpoint to retry the speedrun.
Finishing in such a low time is very difficult and requires a lot of practice to get down. It personally took me about an hour to get it down, so don't expect this to be a quick achievement. Since the course is very short, attempts will be very fast, and therefore you can get several attempts (failed or successful) in under the course of a minute. If you mess things up, simply reload the checkpoint and try again.
After you're satisfied with the course, or have decided to come back to this later, run on over to Captain Price for a briefing on your first mission, which will be atop a ship around the Bering Strait.
|Desert Eagle||Dropped by a specific enemy in the large room past the pipe hallway. See the Desert Storm achievement.|
|USP .45||Starting weapon.|
|AK-74u||Dropped by many enemies.|
|Mini-Uzi||Dropped in the room where you have to shoot enemies on a catwalk on the other side of the room.|
|AK-47||Dropped by many enemies.|
The goal here is to grab a package aboard the Russian freighter you're approaching. When you drop down with Price and a randomly named SAS member, the three of you will first have to kill all the enemies in the room you land next to. After this, the door to the room will open and you'll be able to head downstairs. A very drunk enemy will walk into the hall; if you don't kill him, one of your allies will. There's a room on the right side with a bunk bed and two enemies, and this room is particularly important because it's got the first (1/2) Intel of the mission near the doorway on a small table.
When you've cleared the crew's quarters, you'll head to the back end of the ship with Gaz and another SAS member, who will drop down from the chopper. Two enemies will be patrolling a platform in the middle of it, but they're easy to dispose of. Your allies should take care of them if you don't. When you get to the back, a mass of enemies will ambush you by firing at you through the windows above. Hide from them or try to take them on; either way, the chopper should come by and wipe them all out after enough time passes. Enter the lower decks of the ship with the SAS and you'll soon find yourself in a firefight in a hallway filled with pipes. Dispose of them and make your way into the next room.
After passing through the hallway surrounded by pipes, your allies will pile up near the next doorway before entering the next room. When you enter, run to the right side as fast as you can and head north towards the next room. You should come across a hidden enemy with the Desert Eagle you're looking for; kill him and take it for yourself, then kill at least five enemies with it for an achievement. Don't leave this room without grabbing the (2/2) Intel on the ground just near the bottom of the staircase you used to reach the room.
Follow your team to the end of the room after the coast has been cleared, and then let everyone into the next room before you follow suit. There are lots of enemies on the catwalk on the other side of the room as well as on the ground, so you'll want them to provide as much firepower as they can so you don't have to do as much. When this room is eventually cleared, you'll get to the last room in the mission. Like you've been doing, allow everyone else to enter the room first before you do, and then work with your team to kill everyone in the room.
When the room is cleared, Gaz will pick up the package that you came here for inside a container. The "package" is actually a rather large nuclear missile, but there won't be enough time for the chopper to secure it. Price will tell Soap to grab the manifest on top of it and you'll all rush out of the ship before MiGs arrive. It seems they'll have attacked the freighter before you can make it out, so you're going to have to rush out before the ship sinks. Jump to the chopper to finish the mission.
This mission is a cutscene in the eyes of President Al-Fulani as he becomes the victim of a coup d'etat, led by Khaled Al-Asad. You won't have to do anything for this one.
