Not planned, was a glitch that came along with it. The glitch affects Spec Ops only, as it causes user’s Spec Ops rank to appear as if it is reset and prevents users from loading any of their Spec Ops DLC. According to the Modern Warfare 3 forum, the glitch only occurs when you have MW3 installed to your hard drive and you download the latest Elite DLC. Infinity Ward claims that the glitch has to do with a limit to the amount of DLC for one game.
It sounds scary, but if you happened to stumble across this post after freaking out that your Spec Ops rank was reset and all your DLC was erased, you can relax. There are multiple fixes for the glitch, and both are pretty painless.
Option 1) The first and easiest fix is to uninstall the game from your hard drive, and then re-install it. After doing so your Spec Ops rank should re-appear and your DLC will once again be accessible.
Option 2) If you don’t feel like uninstalling and re-installing the game, you can instead delete all of the DLC for MW3 and re-download it. As with option 1, this will clear up your rank and allow you to access your content again.
Hope that helps!
