I just purchased MW3 today and am already frustrated as hell. I have two controllers and a friend here and can't play Special Ops together at all. It's no fun playing Multiplayer just the two of us against each other and would like to discover all that was promised in Special Ops. No matter what we do, the second controller can't sign on or press 'X' at all to appear/join. We restarted the game, switched controllers, everything. PLEASE HELP!!
I've never played it before, but my friend had. He said to start Campaign and maybe after clearing a level/mission, it will be fine in Special Ops too, but that wasn't the case.
did you go to split screen in the spec. ops menu
