The level begins with the player, Sgt. [[Derek "Frost" Westbrook]], and [[Sandman (Modern Warfare 3)|Sandman]] climbing from the wreckage of an overturned Humvee in Manhattan.

The battalion fights their way up the street, past heavy resistance, and meet up with a convoy of Strykers at the corner of Exchange and Broad Street.
   
Frost, Sandman, and the convoy are then ambushed by a [[Mi-24]] at an enemy roadblock, forcing the team of [[Delta Force|Deltas]] to circumnavigate the road block and enter another building. After they clear the shop and alley, they meet with [[Grizzly]] and his team of Deltas, as they fight in front of the Stock Exchange.

Frost, Sandman, and the convoy are then ambushed by a [[Mi-24 Hind|Mi-24]] at an enemy roadblock, forcing the team of Deltas to circumnavigate the road block and enter another building. After they clear the shop and alley, they meet with Grizzly and his team, as they fight in front of the Stock Exchange.
   
As the team reaches the {{w|New York Stock Exchange}}, they fight their way through the trade floor and take a service ladder to the roof. Using [[thermite]], Frost destroys the radio jammer on the roof, restoring radio communications to friendly forces. They then come under attack from enemy forces positioned on some nearby rooftops.

As the team reaches the {{w|New York Stock Exchange}}, they fight their way through the trade floor and take a service ladder up to the roof. Using [[Thermite]], Frost destroys the radio jammer on the roof, restoring radio communications to friendly forces, allowing air support to come. They then come under attack by enemy forces positioned on some nearby rooftops.
   
Frost uses guided missiles from a [[Reaper|Predator]] Drone to neutralize the enemy troops on the roof, as well as an enemy gunship that arrives to provide support for the enemies. A [[UH-60 Blackhawk|Black Hawk]] then flies in to extract the team, but they are pursued by several [[Mi-24|Hinds]] through the Downtown Manhattan airspace. Frost, manning a [[minigun]], destroys several gunships. At a nearby construction site, as Frost destroys one of them, Delta team's Black Hawk crashes into the scaffolding. The impact causes the Black Hawk to spin out of control, having Frost nearly thrown out of the cabin. The pilot eventually regains control of the helicopter and the team is briefed while proceeding to their [[Hunter Killer|next mission]] in New York Harbor.

The subject of this article appeared in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.

"Destroy the enemy jamming tower in Manhattan."
— Level description


"Black Tuesday" is the second mission of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. The player takes control of Derek "Frost" Westbrook, a Delta Force operator in New York. The objective of the mission is to destroy a Russian radio/microwave jammer placed on the Stock Exchange. Once the jammer is destroyed, the player will be extracted by a Black Hawk and must duel against Russian helicopters to reach New York Harbor which is the location of the next mission.

Characters

Plot

The level begins with the player, Sgt. Derek "Frost" Westbrook, and Sandman climbing from the wreckage of an overturned Humvee in Manhattan. They emerge to find themselves and a friendly Stryker battalion under attack, by Russian infantry and vehicles. The battalion fights their way up the street, past heavy resistance, and meet up with a convoy of Strykers at the corner of Exchange and Broad Street.

Frost, Sandman, and the convoy are then ambushed by a Mi-24 at an enemy roadblock, forcing the team of Deltas to circumnavigate the road block and enter another building. After they clear the shop and alley, they meet with Grizzly and his team, as they fight in front of the Stock Exchange.

As the team reaches the New York Stock Exchange, they fight their way through the trade floor and take a service ladder up to the roof. Using Thermite, Frost destroys the radio jammer on the roof, restoring radio communications to friendly forces, allowing air support to come. They then come under attack by enemy forces positioned on some nearby rooftops.

Frost uses guided missiles from a Predator Drone to neutralize the enemy troops on the roof, as well as an enemy gunship that arrives to provide support for the enemies. A Black Hawk then flies in to extract the team, but they are pursued by several Hinds through the Downtown Manhattan airspace. Frost, operating a Minigun, destroys several gunships. At a nearby construction site, as Frost destroys one of the Hinds, Delta team's Black Hawk crashes into the scaffolding. The impact causes the Black Hawk to whirl out of control, nearly chucking Frost out of the cabin. The pilot eventually regains control of the helicopter and the team is briefed while proceeding to their next mission in New York Harbor.

Intel

  1. Head to the third floor of the first building entered at the beginning of the game. Poke around the bedrooms on that floor and the intel will be located on the floor of one of them.
  2. Enter the Jewelry Store and look for a table back underneath the stairs. This intel is located on top of that table.
  3. Stay in the Stock Exchange lobby and now look over on the left side. Spot a pair of ammo crates and look for the intel to be sitting near them.
  4. Enter the main Stock Exchange area and look toward the right side of it. In the corner next to the stairs is a trading kiosk counter, and on that counter is the fourth piece of intel.
  5. From the Stock Exchange lobby, go to the roof and find the intel resting on top of a fold-out table just before the final set of stairs.
