Missions are levels with a set of objectives to complete within a time limit.
Missions first appeared in Carmageddon II, as the final level in each tier. They mainly involve destroying a number of targets, such as certain pedestrians, radar dishes and generators. Extra time is normally not awarded.
In the games
The Playstation version had missions of a similar vibe - At the end of each tier, the player is given a level where they must destroy all zombies, or one where they have to race through all the checkpoints. Completion of each mission rewards the player with a video, showing a guy in a television, a cow on wheels and stuff falling out of the air.
Carmageddon: TDR 2000 expanded on the idea, including multiple objectives in any given mission level. Despite many missions involving the collection of bomb parts scattered around a level, others showed more variety; destroying certain opponents, racing across an obstacle-strewn bridge, and stealing a tank to escape from an area, among others. Every other race was a mission, and the player still needed to complete the last mission on each level in order to move to the next.

- Neil Barnden (aka nobby) wrote in Carmageddon.com's Carmageddon II history section that the game's missions are too hard because they were a late addition. They had little time to test it, so their difficulty was calibrated using his skill.
-  "They were a late addition to the game design, and I had to very little time to implement them all and even less time to test them. (...) And I made the missions do-able by my standards."
