Best Special Ops kit in Modern Warfare 2

Depending on your playstyle, each one of the Special Ops kits in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 could be considered best. However, if you were to complete these missions solo, the best Special Ops kit would be the Recon kit.

The Recon Special Ops kit will provide you with all the necessary equipment to win in any situation. Being able to find all your enemies at any time, combined with the many grenades and Killstreaks you can use, makes this the best choice for a solo playthrough. However, if you were to play with teammates, having someone as a Medic will also be vital, making Assault the weakest out of all the kits.
