Nice thinking but its actually pretty difficult unless u play with 2 players because there are a lot of enemies in a small area and always 1 or 2 strays that somehow pop up behind u

I finally got it, you need to move fast and sprint alot. When you are going for the last beacon, go up the stairs where a ton of enemies are and flas them and then take the drone up there and take them out. And when evac starts and you enter the same area with alot of enemies, throw a few grenades and flashes and sprint by them.

one very important thing to remember is to leave yourself about 20 extra seconds. meaning you need to be on the chopper at no later than 3:10 or you have to start over cuz the time wasting on the chopper counts. I missed it by a few seconds every time until I realized it and completed the level in 3:08

I downloaded the elite thing off the dashboard recently. Do I use that to get the new spec ops mission and do I have to put down more money?

it really really really helps with 2 players, definitely recommend the worse player be in the drone

you can't play face off maps on survival.. wish you could though. and once you buy an elite subscription you get the maps/spec op mission as soon as they release.. No extra charge.

Its not too hard i did it in single player in 2m 58.3s and that included the heli ride which wastes about 30 seconds i just used the recon drone to tag it and just ran past all the enemies and if there was too many i would just flash them and any that were in the way i would shoot.

So no matter how little time I spend on every beacon I somehow always end up on 3:38, 3:41, 3:37. I'm on my 21th try and still counting xD I probably spend to much time clearing every area before going in or something :x
