What’s next for the mission?
Once you have found all the items and weapons, you can head to the ship to retrieve the GPS. You then attach this to two containers marked on the map, thus completing the mission Precious Cargo from Modern Warfare 3. We’ve also covered all the other Open Combat Missions, which you can find sorted in the following list.
