Modern Warfare 2 Close Air Mission Walkthrough (Location of the greenhouse)

Close Air COD MW2 – Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022) is finally out for all major platforms, and boy oh boy, Infinity Ward has done a fantastic job with the campaign missions on this one.

I have already completed the entire campaign, and I can guarantee that if you are someone who love story-driven first-person shooters, then you will absolutely love the campaign of COD MW2.

Some missions are quite easy, while on the other hand, some might require you to put your thinking cap on. One such mission in the campaign mode is the “Close Air” mission.

We’ll be providing a complete walkthrough of this mission for you guys, so, here it is:

The seventh mission in the campaign mode, the Close Air mission, is all about providing Air-Support to a group of friendlies taking over a compound and capturing Hassan.

Here, you’ll be in control of the AC-130, and you’ll be required to engage and take on a bunch of enemies, keeping in mind that you aren’t cleared to go through buildings, without orders, of course. 

In this mission, before you get to the engaging part, you have to scout the area for intel. Firstly, you’ll be required to spot the friendlies, if you’re having trouble doing so, just look around for a laser pointed towards the sky.

If you need further more help doing it, press “N” on your PC, and the thermals shall be activated, making it easier for you to spot them. 

Next, you’ll be required to scout a moving truck and check if there’s anything fishy going on around it. Once you’re done with the same, you’ll be required to scan the greenhouse. 

This is the part that most players struggle with, if you cannot spot the greenhouse building, all you got to do is spot that one building which has a see-through roof.

The building should look something like this:

Now that you’ve spotted the building, you got to is toggle between the thermals and the normal mode, which will take you to the second part of the greenhouse part of this mission, which is to clear out enemies nearby.

Here, it’s recommended that you use the 25MM to clear out the enemies, and once again, do not shoot at the building itself directly, or it’ll take you back to the last checkpoint.

This will be so until you’re clear to demolish the building, in which case we suggest for you to use the LTM missile to clear the building in one shot. 

Next, once you’re done with the greenhouse part of the mission, you’ll be required to create an opening for your ground squad. Here, target the upper gate of the compound, and use the 40MM, to blast through the gate and make an entry point for your squad. 

There’ll be more cartel members out in the courtyard, so we recommend using the 25MMs here and making sure that those shots aren’t on the buildings or the civilians, but only on the cartel members.

Additionally, your squad will now clear the building and try to extract Hassan from the premises. All you’re required to do now is to provide air support to some more armored vehicles which arrive just before the extraction vehicle.

That’s pretty much it, that’s all you need to do in order to complete the close-air mission in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2022), once you’re done with all the aforementioned stuff, you’ll move on to another ‘Air Support’ mission.
