Vortex Special Ops is a super clan and a war group, with about 54,000 members. Founded around 2010 by Shain1, VSO is one of the most well-known clans in ROBLOX.
Vortex Special Ops gained almost all of its members the VIP recruitment method, which is where people gain VIP for a game by joining the clan. The game VSO used is DANGERTIM122 's Build to Survive the Zombies. Today general stopped the VIP Recruitment and gained his members by recruiting. VSO Members are almost in the beginning was made of vortex security members, but then became a super-clan (more info in history page).
VSO Had started as a Vortex Security squad, made by general's old account, Shain1 . When around 300 VS joined, the general got exiled from VS for unknown reasons and kept the squad blank. Around 2011, general wanted to be in a super-clan again, but didn't quite know which to join. So, he turned Vortex Security Squad into VORTEX SPECIAL OPS! He recruited some of the members using DANGERTIM122 's Build to Survive the Zombies game to recruit members. They hit 20k members in their first year. Shain1 used free models (he used RIC's HQ as VSO's HQ), which caused a lot of crictism on C&G 'World on ROBLOX.'
In 2012, They started their first war on The VOX Empire, a old 30k clan leaded by Voxhall, the leader, which known as his famous tycoon, Star Wars tycoon, and PeerPants, the second in command that turned soon into a hacker and got his account IP - banned. VSO had won The VOX empire on a score of 6-4 (6 wins to VSO and 4 wins to VOX Empire.) PeerPants and Voxhall shut the clan down ultimately due to rage on losing on the war. In july 2012, on the mobile bloxxers war and raid on VSO, generals tell them to go away for a while, and then they wait and then general leaves the game. Jordandog100, a VSO CPT, Sees he was banned and takes over the clan for a while to continue the duties. There are theories that generals had been banned by a hacker, banning him, there are also theories that he seen disobeying rules of ROBLOX and insulting a raider by calling them obscenities. but mostly is the theory of the hacker. General made a new account known as VSOGeneralShain1 and waited until he gets BC again and he will get VSO Again, currently in that time, jordandog100 promoted general to LT-Gen until he gets BC. The ban caused a lot of VSO members being feared being leaderless. In august 2012, due to being guyalf1's exile,one of the goodest VSO members and HR, VSO members started a riot. a ex-colonel which admin abused and got exiled cause of that told lies about guyalf1 (guyalf1 reported the ex-COL) to general, what made guyalf1 exiled. Alot of VSO Members started a riot to return guyalf1 into VSO, cause of him doing nothing. bescause of this happening, general started a massive exile session and he exiled around 150 members who did the riot.
In October 2013, general hits 40k soldiers in VSO. Then he announces on C&G Forum in ROBLOX that he will stop being "so copyish" and will stop using other clan's models. Two new divisions were createdTechnicianshnicans and VSO Naval Forces. In April, he finally allowed guyalf1 return to, because he didn't believed the EX-COL. He needed EX-VSO's help to make VSO alive again, so soon he becomes a captain again. In the month of August, VSO hits the "top 10 clans" leaderboard, which made them show in the first page of clans. In September, Gaster1234567890, The creator of Rancor Battlion joins VSO and starts RB as a squad. In December, Shain makes a new military clan named "Pakistan Millitary".
In April 2014, Shain makes an April Fools joke by making a fake new fort which is under construction and makes it on public. The description said -
At the end of Janurary 2017, The 3rd in command, Coolsniper got a message from Colonel De_Elite. Except, That was De_Elite's brother. He messaged coolsniper that De_Elite died in real life due to illness. Many groups prayed for VSO for their big loss and they stopped the critcism fully. But there are still people who complain that VSO is full of kids, Mostly exiled members. Some time after the death, Some EXs create alt accounts like "VSODeservedDeath", "DeEliteDeserved" and more. The accounts had been banned from roblox, including the creator. Also, team CORE Had stopped hacking VSO's base, since their leader got Perm-Banned from ROBLOX.
At feburary 2017, 2 weeks after De_Elite's death, General creates a new promotion system. Privates, must pass a test & must patrol HQ for 1 Hour to get promoted, PFCs must attend training and get "promotion-credits" to be promoted. They can attend bootcamp too, But they need to patrol HQ after the training.
Vortex Special Ops' ranks are military-based and used to be earned through Knockouts in training at the group's training place,their Bootcamp for various ranks. VSO also has divisions which have specific division training for just the division.
Private is the lowest rank, as an entry level rank, and has the most members at over 50,000. According to the group guide, they must obey all orders given by higher ranks except Private First Class. To get the rank's promotion, PVTs must pass a test hosted by a CPT+, and if passed the simple test, they would be promoted.
Private First Class is the next rank, and the rank does not have any significant differences, and must be earned by getting 25 Knockouts in training.
Corporal is the third rank, and is earned by getting 75 Knockouts in training. As stated in the group guide, they are allowed to create and lead squads with 2 other members, but must be lower than this rank.
Sergeant is the final low rank, and is earned by getting 150 Knockouts in a training, and passing a boot camp training. They can form a larger squad than corporals with up to 4 other members lower than the rank Sergeant, and unlike Corporals, they have authority over Privates.
Lieutenant is considered a middle rank, and is earned by getting 200 Knockouts in training, complete a boot camp training, and also having VSOGeneralShain1's trust. They can also be in the Airborne division of Vortex Special Ops, and can ask for permission to use aircraft. They have a responsibility of limited authority over low ranks when there are no High Ranks online, and can form squads with up to 10 low ranks.
Captain is the first High Rank of Vortex Special Ops. Unlike previous promotions, this rank is earned through being appointed by VSOGeneralShain1 or his brother(LT Gen. LegendaryShain1) who usually picks the most active Lieutenant. They have admin commands in training but not within forts, and they have full authority over lower ranks including Lieutenants. They also get access into the High Rank division of the group, which gives them upgraded versions of the weapons used in the forts. Captains can also form very large squads with 20 Low Ranks or Lieutenants.
Colonel is the 3rd Highest Rank in Vortex Special Ops. Colonels are appointed through being active like Captains, but this is enforced to a higher level. Colonels can promote and demote members without permission from VSOGeneralShain1, they have admin, and have a slight authority over Captains. The squad size difference from Captains is not large, being able to have up to 23 members below the rank of Colonel.
Lieutenant General, referred to as Commander in the group guide, does not have much difference from the rank Colonel. The rank was a gift to the biggest contributor to Vortex Special Ops, Proevil. It is also used as the rank of VSOGeneralShain1's alt, LegendaryShain1 or by his strict brother. Then on July 9th 2015 Colonel justwaggerit, Shain's second most trusted officer, received this rank as being the most active VSO. Until he got exiled for being inactive and possible admin abuse. What set it off was the mass demotions of Lt's without the Generals authorization. This rank is obtainable if you are extremely active and appointed by the General, and can have up to 55 other members in a squad lower than Lieutenant General. ProEvil is known to be only active for administration of VSO.
General is the leader of Vortex Special Ops. The current General is VSOGeneralShain1, and has all the powers of Lieutenant General. The General does not create Squads, using the group itself as the "Squad". For a time, Jordandog100, VSOGeneralShain1's most trusted High Rank, was temporarily made General until VSOGeneralShain1 got Builder's Club and finally took back the rank. Shain1, the original founder of the group, was banned forever due to his account being compromised.

Old Crictism on VSO
VSO had got a lot of critcism in ROBLOX, The first reason is that VSO had copied many models including RIC's HQ and alpha authority's outpost. The second reason is the unskilled people inside VSO, that couldnt defeat a horde of raiders, and third is that VSO is full of kids, since it doesn't matter. In around 2014 the crictism had stopped halfly.
-One of the oldest forts named Headquarters Base Kenway is named after Connor Kenway from the Assassin's Creed series of video games published by Ubisoft. It confirms that the general likes the game "Assassins Creed" games.
-Warzone K2 is also the joint base of VSO and PM.
-One of the most hugest wars is against The VOX Empire, a old clan that were around 2011-2012 with 30k members. VSO had won them, and then because of the win, The leaders, PeerPants and Voxhall shut down the clan due to rage.
