  1. Final Sin was the best level in Doom Eternal. All the levels are great but that one feels like the ultimate test of everything you have learned. They throw absolutely everything at you, and you don’t see that level of insanity again until the TAG 1, the master levels, or horde mode.

  2. "Rogers Ridge" is "Belly Of The Beast" that was based on the shoot out on – at "Rodgers Ridge" one of the worst firefights American Forces faced. Close to 1100 Tali Ban fighters against a small Team of NAVY SEALS and US Army Rangers. A CH-53 Was shot down (We called them Washing Machines because inside one was like being in a WM ) read about the rest .

  3. All ghillied up will always be it for me. I’ve played that mission a thousand times. It was really cool to see Medal of Honor in the 10 spot. You get overrun at the end of the mission and the music starts to raise and it sounds saddening as if you’re not making it out of this and your squad mates continue to scream how they’re running low on ammo. Literally just before you think you’re going to die, air support arrives.

  4. Woof, there are some very weak picks on this list and some major omissions IMO. No OG Doom or Goldeneye???? Hollywood Holocaust isn't even close to the best level in Duke Nukem, it's not even the best level in that episode. And I know I'm in the minority but I certainly don't consider Welcome to Ravenholm the best level from Half-Life 2. There are some solid picks here like Surface Tension and All Ghillied Up but some real misfires IMO

  5. I'm not a particularly experienced FPS player but Battleship Tirpitz from the original Call of Duty is an excellent level as I remember it.

    It's a failed stealth mission that starts in the claustrophobic lower decks with clever level geometry to take advantage of as you sabotage the engines. Upon your return to the upper deck, you face a firing squad of Nazi soldiers waiting to dome you from every angle the second you emerge. After that massacre it's time to sabotage the comms and finally escape. The design, spectacle and sheer difficulty of the Battleship Tirpitz help it stand out in a game that has so many iconic missions. Eder Dam, Pegasus Bridge, Pavlov's House, the mansion level that feels like a love letter to Wolfenstein and the Rocket Launch site all fall short of it imo.

  6. 2010 MoH was a piece of crap. Besides keeping it fresh there's no real reason why this game should have the honor be mentioned in this list. Also what's with this background music? Too loud, too unfitting. I'm usually not giving this much crap, but the beginning of this video was simply unbearable.

  7. A personal favorite of mine is from Call of Duty: Finest Hour, Not One Step Back. The very first level you are storming the beaches of German Controlled Stalingrad and must clear out turret posts and bunkers. Aleksandr Sokolov is 20 year old Russian Private who just starts off with an ammo clip, not even a gun. So for the first several minutes of maneuvering around enemy fire you watch as the carnage of war is all around you.

  8. This list was missing any level from DOOM or DOOM II, even though it had Super Gorenest from Eternal I feel like something like E1M1, E3M1, E4M6, E4M7, MAP28, MAP08 or any of the glorious levels from the classics deserve a spot for how influential they were and how much they still hold up in terms of delivering great design and challenge.

  9. To this day I can't believe Medal of Honor didn't kill COD……….. the Melee was way more fun and also because I am obsessed with Handguns in FPS games, I finally didn't have to struggle with the thought of ditching my Handgun for a Rifle since you had 2 primary long guns and by quickly double rapping (in my case Y) you could pull out your Pistol………… still can't believe they took that out in Warfighter…… also they made the melee COD basic…….. that's probably why it flopped

  10. Doom 2: tricks and traps. This level takes a hillarious twist from other levels by utterly trolling you left and right. Return to Castle Wolfenstein: The level where you storm a manor(near the end of the campaign). It's a unique and engaging level, promoting both sniping and guns blazing. Doom(1993): e1m1 Hanger. The level that introduced us to the iconic game, and hence deserves its spot. I will say that the current list is great, especially having enjoyed many of the ones listed.(we don't go to ravenholm).

  11. All ghillied up is one of my most memorable levels ever but I also really enjoyed the court level from Wolfenstein II The New Colossus, frantic FPS action at it's very finest!

  12. I absolutely love "343 Guilty Spark" every time I replay Halo: CE. It's the first appearance of the Flood and totally blew me away the first time I played it because the Flood is so f'ing creepy.
