    I experienced a large amount of rage on the practically checkpoint-less mission "Executive Order" in the underground section.

    What missions caused you guys to smash your controllers and break things?

    3rd mission executive order with the long corridor that was insane, after that I tried to do SOG and got as far as stabbing the first barrel but died every time just couldn't stab it and survive so dropped difficulty to hardened.

    I found "SOG" fine until the aforementioned part. I must have spent an hour and a half on it, just running down the hill, hiding in a bunker, only to be pwned when I popped my head up. I didn't even remember that I had to stab the barrels! I assumed that I had to run to the bottom of the hill and then something would occur. I had to watch a YouTube video on it so I didn't go mental and kill someone. I felt like a bit of a prat after learning about the barrels :blush:. After that, though, it was plain sailing.

    I won't cast my vote until I complete the campaign on Veteran, but I think I know what my answer is [still] going to be.

    I've got to admit, as frustrating as the tunnel was if that's the hardest part of the game this is still a walk in the park compared to COD4.

    Havn't came across a level that is ridiculously hard. Executive Order is kinda easy once you know about the barrels. I had a really dodgy checkpoint on Rebirth which took me about half and hour to get past. Just the last mission to go now :thumbsup:

    i don't remember executive order being that hard, it was SOG for me. Although a part on rebirth was tricky, when you're in a vehicle trying to blow stuff up and make your way through the streets.

    Only place i spent a lil time retrying on was that corridor..was there for half hour before thinking to throw smoke down the corridor and running to see what was up ahead and boom...checkpoint! yeah i died pretty quick but then when it restarted most of the enemies were easy to dispatch and i moved on.

    imo easiest veteran campaign so far!

    Never been so frustrated playing a game as I was at this bit. Although the checkpoint system on Rebirth did stitch me up royally. Was where you're in the tank and the helicopter crashes ahead of you, the guys surviving kept getting me, and the guys on the right of you. Took me a good 15-20 goes whilst my other half sat there laughing at how wound up I got.. Other than those 2 bits, fairly simple campaign I thought, definitely not as tough as MW.

    Nothing compare's to COD4's final rush through the cargo room. Blops was easy.

    Definitely Executive order in the underground corridor, took a good hour and a half to nail this sucker. The rest of the game was pretty straight forward and easy other than that.

    Getting down the hill on SOG caused a headache for about 30 minutes too, but was easy enough when I finally sussed it.

    Seriously :confused: ... even easier than MW2's campaign ?

    I haven't touched single player yet but have done the last 3 games on Veteran.

    If none of the levels are harder than CoD4's 'NFITWR' & W@W's 'Heart of the Reich' then I'll be happy :Das I rank them as the hardest in the series ....

    even harder than 'Mile High Club' which I ended up enjoying on Veteran due to the fact it was less than a minute per attempt.

    SOG for me, the others were not that hard.

    maybe we should have a poll with all the levels of all the COD games to make up the hardest COD campaign ever.

    example

    COD2 - the hill.
    COD4 - NFITWR, mile high.
    COD:WAW - the reich level (not sure what it's called)
    COD:BOPS - SOG.

    :D

    I completed the campaign on Veteran earlier and it is definitely the easiest from Call of Duty 4 and up. My vote is finalised on "Executive Order," which is one of the two missions I had any trouble with. The rest were a walk in the park. "Rebirth" was stupidly easy compared to how difficult I thought it would be.

    Pathetic multiplayer; great campaign :thumbsup:.

    I voted SOG too because I didn't know what to do and kept trying to push down into the infinite spawns. Once i figured out it was the barrels i needed to stab it was easy enough.

    None of the missions were as hard as i expected (having played WAW) and i played through first time on Veteran.

    Have you tried it since the patch? Pathetic is a bit strong, in fairness.

    For me, it's the section after the "Stop the rocket launching" where you then go down a couple of tunnels, into a room full of servers and then another corridor (I don't pay much attention to level names :blush: )

    That's where I'm stuck :mad: and it's interesting to see the comments about moving forward with a smoke grenade to get to a checkpoint.

    At the moment, once I die, get bored/enraged I have to go back to the section looking down on the barrels pre rocket launch (3 minutes or so to get past them to the actual "stop the rocket" bit) and do that all over again. :suicide:

    I might have to make a post in the Play & Help thread..... :oops:

    I've played it every day since it came out. I used "pathetic" because it really makes me want to give up on the game altogether sometimes. Like, today for example, I was playing TDM and emptied nearly 100% of an AUG clip into a guy, which only resulted in hit markers. He turned around and shot me once with a Python and it killed me straight away. Upon further inspection of the Killcam, he hit me with a legshot.

    :mad:.

    Smoke grenades and emptying clips down the corridor got me through this bit here. It's fairly sparse checkpoint wise so you've got to be wary, but the old infinite spawn can get you good and proper. It doesn't get much easier once you've got past that first section of tunnel and through the room...

    I'm still playing through on vet so I'll vote when I've finished it, although playing the multiplayer with the misses and the career mode with full race weekends take up all my time so probably won't be voting anytime soon! :(
