The Pit is the first Special Ops level in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in the Alpha group of operations. The objective is to clear all enemy targets, while avoiding killing civilians, and get to the end while being timed.
The Pit takes place in a training area with both stationary and moving enemy and civilian targets popping up. The player begins the level with an M4A1 and a USP .45 (but can change weapons on the table at the beginning of the mission), and is tasked with charging through the level as fast as possible. There are 24 enemy targets to take out and 5 civilian targets to avoid. Simply hitting all enemy targets and getting to the end of the level will award the player with one star, regardless of how long it took them. Completing these objectives in 45 seconds and 35 seconds will reward the player with two stars and three stars respectively. If a civilian is hit, it will be impossible to obtain three stars.
