Call of Duty fans praise “All Ghillied Up” as one of their favourite missions of all time.
As with any long-running video game series, over two decades have seen their fair share of memorable moments, some more so than others.
Call Duty was initially released back in 2003 on PC before expanding across all platforms and becoming one of the most successful video game properties ever produced.
How can Call of Duty, with over 20 games across multiple platforms (including mobile) be best remembered? An open and honest discussion would probably last hours; one mission that stands out among fans in particular for many fans is ‘All Ghillied Up’ from 2007’s Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare game.
“All Ghillied Up’ is inspired by the camouflage suits worn during this 1996 Call of Duty mission in Ukraine by Lieutenant John Price and Captain MacMillan – giving this game its unique name.
Players had to navigate enemy lines using long grass, abandoned buildings and stealth camo as aids against detection by large convoys of soldiers – one false move and all hell would break loose; an experience many consider one of the finest stealth missions ever in any videogame series, not just Call of Duty.
Redditors of Call of Duty have been discussing ‘All Ghillied Up’ mission on Reddit as part of a thread about favourite missions from each series – such as Exodus from Modern Warfare 2 or Vendetta in World at War. Many Reddiors agreed with Gnnz that All Ghillied Up mission should be considered the “best COD mission ever”.
“Oh yes,” replied joerice1979. “To not go in all guns blazing was such a relief – especially given such an unusual setting! The pace of that mission was perfect – sneak, evade, defend panic escape.”
“COD:MW was truly one of my all-time favourite moments of gaming history; from its story to multiplayer modes it offered unforgettable gameplay experience!” said PatAD.
Fans have voiced their opinion that Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare’s Crash multiplayer map is amongst the greatest ever created, while Call of Duty: Warzone Caldera will eventually close for good.
