How to Level Up Spec Ops Kits & Tiers in MW2

You need to collect the stars during the Spec Ops missions to level up your kits and tiers in Modern Warfare 2. For that, complete different challenges or objectives in the Spec Ops missions to earn these stars. You can earn a maximum of three stars in every Spec Ops mission. Alternatively, you can also replay these missions to get the stars. But make sure to equip the kit that you want to level up.

In total, there are three kits and they are as follows:

  • Assault
  • Medic
  • Recon

Every Spec Ops kit can be leveled up to a maximum tier or rank of 10. Each of the above types of kits has different tiers that are unlocked with stars. And each of them has different perks as you unlock them. But before you do so, you also need to unlock the Medic & Recon kits. While the Medic kit can be unlocked with 1 star, the Recon kit can be unlocked with three stars. You can also unlock them by completing a single Spec Ops mission with three stars. If you are confused about these missions, check out our guide that explains what is a Spec Ops for more insight.
