- — Level Description
Server Crash is a Special Ops Mission Mode challenge in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The player must eliminate enemy soldiers and Humvees, infiltrate into Volk's underground hideout and obtain the information in a DSM.
The player(s) starts being a passenger(s) in a jeep with a M320 GLM and a SCAR-L with various attachments. As the jeep emerges from the building, soldiers start retreating in front of it. Then the jeep goes up a flight of stairs; at this point more soldiers and a GAZ-2975 will start shooting and following the jeep. The player is then followed by two more GAZs. The jeep turns right and more hostiles appear. Eventually the jeep ascends more stairs and is threatened by three more GAZs as well as numerous foot soldiers. Then the jeep stops in front of a building. More troops will come out of the door and the player(s) as well as the Jeep's driver will exit the vehicle to fight them. After killing enemies, the player(s) must get in and kill more soldiers until they reach a ladder leading to the catacombs. The player(s) must descend the ladder and fight more soldiers until they reach the basement and then connect the DSM. Upon connecting it, enemies will assault the player(s)' position. When the transmission is complete, the DSM must be collected. The player(s) must make their way back up the way they came, facing heavy resistance including a Juggernaut. Once the player(s) reaches the jeep and board it, the mission is complete.
Volk is planning something significant, so the player is sent into his hideout to download the plan. The player begins on the back of a jeep with plenty of firepower: an assault rifle with a grenade launcher, as well as a M320.
During the drive to the hideout, the player will have to use the grenade launchers to neutralize the enemy troops and vehicles along the way. The SCAR-L works to down the helicopters. Taking them down may get hard especially on increased difficulties so have each teammate watch their flanks. The player must make sure he/she destroy the helicopters or the game will send him/her back to the mission's start. When the ride ends, leave your rolling deathtrap and enter the building. Your driver will help you out, which mean that you and your partner can stand out to one side so he can do all the work. Worrying about the driver is not needed, as he is invincible. After that, get into the entrance once no one else comes. The driver will stay behind to hold off anyone who attempts to besiege the vehicle.
Fight your way down into the underground catacombs. Follow the long corridor to the stairwell, and keep moving to the computer. Before you interact with it, however, clear the area of enemies and load up your light machine guns of choice for a tough battle ahead. There are also claymores which should be set up at narrow choke points to cluster the next wave.
Attach the DSM to the network and then set up in opposite corners - there are two entrances. Establish crisscrossing killzones and watch your partner's blind spots as you did on the jeep. With the regular opponents defeated, enemies with riot shields will arrive - don't attack them from the front. A better option is to flank them for an easy kill.
When the transfer is complete, grab the DSM and load as many explosive weapons as you can find.
In the long corridor, a Juggernaut heads your way. Have one person use a Flashbang to stun it, and the other player eat away as much of its health as he can with his grenade launcher(s). When the second player is out of ammunition, throw a concussion grenade and quickly get your partner to unleash more grenades. Rinse and repeat until the armored enemy falls. If he does reach the basement, grab a light machine gun to finish him. Be advised that you must kill him, for there is a prolonged firefight at your jeep, allowing him to simply catch up and kill your party.
Fight your way out the building and retrace your steps outside. Break into a run for the jeep that your driver is already in, using grenades on the enemies clustering together. Enter the jeep to complete the mission.
|Found in level|
These weapons can be found with and without attachments.
These weapons are found in the underground armory where the player connects the DSM.
- When the player dies in the chase sequence, the vehicle stops moving as well, for no reason.
- When you connect the DSM to Volk's server, the download animation and font looks quite similar to the one from "Loose Ends".
- The Driver has plot armor that lasts through the mission, and has random attachments on his MP5, ranging from the Silencer, Holographic Sight, Red Dot Sight, or no attachments at all.
- The Driver can be 'forced' into the Catacombs with grenades, but he will always return to the jeep, as he is not scripted to tag along with the players.
- Similar to "Fatal Extraction", the player shoots down helicopters as though he had the perk "Blind Eye Pro".
- During the chase, the SAS spawn theme is played.
