Throwing Knife menu icon MW3 The subject matter of this article was cut from the final version of a Call of Duty game.

"Immediate Action" was a planned campaign mission in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. All that exists to prove its development is a file called "compass_map_cqb_2.iwi". In the mod tools, in the raw/English/localizedstrings folder, a file called "embassy.str" can be found. The string file includes information about the level, such as its location, the level name, the date, and various objectives.

Plot Edit

From the level's planned string file, the mission would take place in the American Embassy in London, and bears almost identical resemblance to the Iranian Embassy siege of 1980. It is not known when the game takes place; all that is known is the time - 1942 hours (7:42 PM). Also not known is the player's team.
