The Pit is the first Special Ops level in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in the Alpha group of operations. The objective is to clear all enemy targets, while avoiding killing civilians, and get to the end while being timed.
The Pit takes place in a training area with both stationary and moving enemy and civilian targets popping up. The player begins the level with an M4A1 and a USP .45, but may swap them out for other weapons provided nearby. There are 24 enemy and 5 civilian cutouts in the pit.
Stars are obtained based on the player's performance; one star is given if the player takes more than 45 seconds, two if the player completes within 45 seconds, and three if the player completes within 35 seconds. If a civilian is hit, players will be ineligible for three stars even if they complete the course within 35 seconds.
