Bungie began working on ODST at the same time they started working on Halo 3. So to give EPIC all the credit for wave-based co-op modes isn't right. Bungie doesn't deserve credit either, as Rainbow 6 Vegas (2006) had Terrorist Hunt, and many games from the previous generation also had those modes.Also CoD wasn't even CLOSE to being the first shooter series to introduce a ranking/progression system & unlockable content. Just about every multiplayer shooter on PC had some sort of ranking system starting in the late 90s, although they were actually based on skill & not just gaining XP.Don't use logic on a list that has GoW listed as the original cover shooter. It is better to move on and save some sanity. Although I will point out that this is mainly a console crowd and this gen has seen huge innovations in multiplayer gaming otherwise relatively unseen in PS2/Xbox 1 era (Except rank progression I recall PS2 games having that and mics and unlockable content).
