Tips and Tricks on Getting a Raid Assignment in COD Modern Warfare 2

The developers have provided us with tips and tricks on easily earning a raid assignment with the above methods. You first want to warm up with Special Ops missions as much as possible so you can learn how enemy agents function, how Special Ops kits work and earn the rewards that come with completing them. The second thing you want to do is to tier up your kits because raids are part of Special Ops which means they use the Kit system.
