Call of Duty: 16 Most Brutal Villains In The Franchise, Ranked

Villains throughout video games commit terrible deeds that mark big changes in the story and create memorable moments that live with us forever.

  • Villains in Call of Duty games commit brutal acts like torture, genocide, and mass murder, leaving a lasting impact on players.
  • Characters like Edward Richtofen, Khaled Al-Asad, and General Barkov are some of the most brutal villains in the franchise.
  • The villains' actions contribute to their memorable status, showcasing their uncompromising personalities and the dark nature of their goals.

Villains throughout video games commit terrible deeds that mark big changes in the story and create extremely memorable moments that live with us forever. Call of Duty is no stranger to creating these moments. Most fans of the franchise can recall their reactions and feelings when they witnessed General Shepherd gun down Ghost and Roach in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 .

Call Of Duty's Most Legendary Protagonists & Villains

It's one of the greatest moments in the franchise. The villains throughout the Call of Duty games have done extremely brutal things to either the characters or in the plot as a whole. Here are the 10 most brutal villains in the franchise, ranked.

Updated on November 2nd, 2023 by Gregory Louis Gomez: One of the areas where Call of Duty attempts to outdo itself every year is the villains. Some of them have ended up becoming iconic characters over time, such as General Shepard or Edward Richtofen. These characters are typically known for their uncompromising personalities and heavy-handed nature in achieving their goals. This, usually coupled with some strong voice acting (from the likes of Lance Henriksen, Nolan North, and others), has contributed to having these characters become truly memorable. Bearing this in mind, we've decided to add a few more entries to this list of Call of Duty's most brutal villains.

16 Edward Richtofen

Call of duty: world at war.

  • Biological warfare

While his name sounds like a medication one would take for a nasty headache, this doesn't mean he's not to be taken seriously. There's a debate among fans about whether he's a conventional villain, or an anti-hero, or something completely different. Still, most players view him as a villain in the franchise.

His actions throughout the storyline make him somewhat of an anti-hero or a full-on villain. Ultimately though, he becomes one of the good guys, trying to stop the evil version of himself. He gets himself a pass in this list, as the least brutal villain in the franchise.

Call of Duty: World at War

15 khaled al-asad, call of duty 4: modern warfare.

  • Staging a bloody coup
  • Detonating a Nuclear Weapon

Serving as the main villain of the first act of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare , Khaled Al-Asad was a terrible man that worked closely with Imran Zakhaev.

Call of Duty Games That Need Sequels

He committed terrible deeds in his rise to power. For example, he ordered citizens to be executed in the streets for being loyal to the current president, Yasir Al-Fulani. Khaled ends up capturing Al-Fulani and executes him on television. Towards the end of act one, Khaled Al-Asad is finally captured by Captain Price , Soap, and his team. Price ends up killing Al-Asad after discovering that Imran Zakhaev is still alive.

14 General Barkov

Call of duty: modern warfare (2019).

  • Chemical warfare
  • Mass Murder

The newest game in the franchise, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare , released in 2019 brought a return to the traditional campaign mode that was missing from Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 . General Barkov serves as one of the main villains in the game. Barkov is the general of the Russian army and does cruel things throughout the campaign missions such as unleashing a chemical gas that kills several civilians and also tortures one of the main protagonists, Farah, and her brother Hadir.

He's eventually taken down by Farah in the final mission of the Modern Warfare campaign. Barkov has become a quite memorable villain and could possibly get more backstory in a potential sequel.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

13 nikita dragovich, call of duty: black ops.

  • Torture & Murder of his men
  • Brainwashing

Call of Duty: Black Ops was so ahead of its time when it was released in 2010. The campaign mode brought so many crazy twists and turns that hold up just as well as the Shepherd betrayal scene. Players step into the shoes of Alex Mason in different missions, while he's trying to repair his mind after being turned into a sleeper agent. The person responsible for brainwashing him was Nikita Dragovich, who is the main villain of the game.

Call of Duty: Ranking Every Game in the Main Series

Not only does he turn an American against his people, but he also has a hand in weaponizing Nova 6, a powerful biochemical weapon that he intended on unleashing upon the United States. Thankfully, however, his plan was thwarted in the final mission. He may not be not one of the most memorable but definitely did extremely brutal things throughout the game.

12 Gabriel T. Rorke

Call of duty: ghosts.

Call of Duty: Ghosts had a very different story than some of the past games. It was a lot more personal and while not as memorable as the Modern Warfare and Black Ops games, it did a great job of trying something new and refreshing. The main villain of the story, Rorke is extremely cruel and takes things way too far in his quest for revenge.

He was formerly the leader of the Ghosts but was left for dead in a mission gone wrong. After surviving, the Federation tortured and brainwashed him to turn against his former fellow soldiers. One of the most brutal acts Rorke committed was killing Elias T. Walker in front of his sons. It was terribly cruel but shaped him as a great villain that players wanted to see dead.

Call of Duty Ghosts

Call of duty black ops: cold war.

  • Nuclear proliferation

Depending on the player's choices, Perseus might be one of the most ruthless villains in any COD game. Not only is he potentially responsible for the complete annihilation of Western Europe via stolen nuclear weapons, but he also takes great pleasure in assisting Bell in wiping out their former NATO compatriots (even applauding the player for their lack of mercy).

8 Great Games Based On The Vietnam War

Perseus is an ideologue who sees only one way forward; his way. Even his home country, the USSR, is not safe from his domineering nature as shown in one of the possible endings for Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War , in which he is shown as willing to kill and replace members of the government that don't align with his worldview.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

10 jonathan irons, call of duty: advanced warfare.

  • Human experimentation

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare made huge changes to the franchise. Taking the futuristic setting to the next level, Advanced Warfare brought in Exo-Suits and a focus on a more cinematic feel to the campaign mode. Jonathan Irons serves as the primary villain of Advanced Warfare after he betrays his soldiers and is revealed to be working on a biological weapon that would kill countless innocent people.

He's really just as bad as Shepherd. While his betrayal is certainly not on the level of when Ghost and Roach are killed, it's still a great twist overall. And as an added bonus, he's portrayed by the iconic eye-candy, Kevin Spacey .

9 Salen Kotch

Call of duty: infinite warfare.

Speaking of eye-candy, let's give it up for Kit Harrington's role in the CoD franchise. He nearly destroyed the planet Earth! But even if that attempt wasn't successful, he did wage war on Earth. Salen Koch is a blood-thirsty dictator with a great sense of style.

All of the above screams class and pure awesomeness on the ruthless radar. There are times when he's almost better than Mendenez and the rest of the sharks on the list. His only goal is to conquer Earth, and nothing can stand in his way.

8 Lev Kravchenko

  • Torture & murder of his men

As Dragovich's right-hand man, Kravchenko is every bit as brutal as his boss if not more so if only for the fact that he is more than willing to get his hands dirty. Kravchenko seems to subtly enjoy physically and psychologically torturing both his enemies and even his own men if it furthers his ends.

Call Of Duty: Best Campaign Characters, Ranked

Nowhere is this more obvious than in the first Black Ops , in which Lev can be seen gouging out Grigori Weaver's eye, beating Mason to a pulp, testing Nova 6 on his own soldiers, and so on. Kravchenko is essentially a brawler with political power. He is big and mean but also quite smart, which makes him especially dangerous.

7 Imran Zakhaev

  • Funding a coup
  • Launching nuclear missiles

Following the end of the first act, Imran Zakhaev takes over as the main villain in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare . He really started the foundation for the movements that would eventually lead to World War III in Modern Warfare 3 . He proved to be hard to kill, surviving an assassination attempt by John Price years prior to the present-day story that only left him losing his left arm.

Zakhaev is the real mastermind behind the events in the Modern Warfare trilogy. He made a puppet out of everyone that served him, until his death at the end of the campaign mode in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare .

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

From the very start, this character was cool and mysterious. After encountering him for the first time and establishing that he is an awesome character, he starts shooting hostages, and shoots someone in the face. If players can't catch up to him, he flies into the sunset.

Black Ops Cold War: 14 Best Weapons To Start With In Zombies

If that's not wicked, check the dictionary. DeFalco proves over and over again that he's one of the most ruthless characters in the franchise, cutting throats with a smile on his face. The only "fault" with this character is that he doesn't have the same resources as the most ruthless villains. But if he had a wide arsenal, he'd make every villain in the franchise his minion.

5 Fredrich Steiner

Fredrich Steiner is one of the main villains of Call of Duty: Black Ops and was a German scientist and ex-Nazi SS officer that worked closely with Nikita Dragovich to develop Nova 6, the biochemical weapon that would kill anybody exposed to it in a short amount of time.

Steiner became a top priority target during the war and was ultimately taken down by Alex Mason while believing himself to be Viktor Reznov. Steiner was partly responsible for manipulating Alex Mason into becoming a sleeper agent that would turn against his fellow soldiers.

4 Raul Menendez

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 was all around an amazing game and sequel. It built on everything that was great about the first game and cranked it up to 1000. Now taking place in a futuristic setting with drones, brand new guns, and breathtaking locations, the game also brought along a brand new villain that had deep connections with the story and characters in Black Ops 1 . Raul Menendez is his name and he was certainly not a force to be reckoned with.

20 Multiplayer Games To Play If You Love Call Of Duty: Warzone

He had clear motivations that made sense within the story. While not on the level of Makarov, he proved himself to be an iconic villain.

3 Vladimir Makarov

Call of duty: modern warfare 2.

  • Terrorism / Mass murder
  • Starting World War 3

Modern Warfare 2 brought the end of Shepherd. However, players still had Makarov to deal with. He's basically the ultimate villain of the original Modern Warfare trilogy. Makarov's dark deeds are held as some of the darkest things a villain has ever done in a Call of Duty game.

From the airport mission to killing Soap, Makarov was just a huge pain to deal with. He was always getting away whenever the protagonists would get so close to bringing him down. It'll be very interesting to see if Makarov makes a return in a sequel to the Modern Warfare reboot so players can get revenge on him once again.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (2009)

2 general shepherd.

  • Betraying Task Force 141

Shepherd is one of the most iconic villains in video game history. The betrayal scene in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is one of the most memorable moments in the franchise and was the first major plot twist in the Call of Duty campaigns that really stuck with gamers.

It's a twist fans still talk about to this day. While many will never forgive Shepherd for betraying Ghost and Roach, it's impossible to deny how great his performance was at making himself seem trustworthy. In the end, players were able to get revenge on him as Soap in the most satisfying way possible.

1 Russell Adler

  • Betrayal & Murder

Russell Adler is, for all intents and purposes, the American equivalent of Nikita Dragovich. His role as Cold War's villain is certainly a matter of perspective (one that is determined by player choice , by the way), but his methods in achieving his goals are very much the same. He employs the same brainwashing techniques on Bell that the Soviets did with Mason.

7 Video Game Franchises That Gradually Transformed Into RPGs

As if the drugs and suggestion techniques weren't sketchy enough, Adler clearly doesn't value Bell beyond their usefulness to his ends, which is why one of the endings strongly implies that Bell is killed by Adler even after they side with him. Talk about being a two-faced jerk!

Who is Ghost in Call of Duty, and why is his return a big deal?

New Modern Warfare Season 2 trailer teases the return of fan-favorite Lt. Simon “Ghost” Riley.

This article contains spoilers for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Modern Warfare 2: Ghost.

A fan-favorite character has been hinted to return in  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare . A teaser that was posted features the return of Lt. Simon “Ghost” Riley, which is due to drop on Feb. 11 – when Season 2 is tipped to begin. 

The teaser, posted in a tweet, shows someone logging in to view encrypted files that they received from Captain Price. Ghost can be seen in the reflection of the laptop screen. “New team: Operators” and “updated weapons system/ordinance” also show on the screen, which could hint what will arrive in the game with the update. Some fans have also pointed out that the images that appear are of Rust, the iconic map from  Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 . Could this be where Ghost makes his return?

Who is Ghost?

It is no surprise that the Ghost has made a return. First seen in  Modern Warfare 2  in 2009 as a British Special Forces operator, he has been popular with fans ever since. The last time fans saw him was as a customization option in  Call of Duty: Ghosts,  so there’s quite a buzz surrounding his return.

Players first encountered Ghost in Rio de Janeiro in  Takedown , although he was only around in person for a short time. He then communicated via radio for the rest of the mission. He was also seen in the mission  The Hornet’s Nest  with Task Force 141, an “elite, multi-national counter-terrorist unit under Lieutenant General Shepherd’s command.” 

Ghost’s final appearance was in a mission that shocked every single  CoD  fan that played it and became infamous in the community –  Loose Ends . This is the last level in which players see Ghost alive. In it, both he and Gary “Roach” Sanderson, a fellow member of Task Force 141, are betrayed by Shephard.

Ghost and Roach are sent to the antagonist’s safehouse on the Georgian-Russian border to search for intel. When they find “a bloody goldmine” (according to Ghost) of information and return it to Shephard, he betrays and kills them to take the glory for himself, and cement his status as a war hero. He then dumps both characters’ bodies in a ditch and sets fire to them with his cigar.

Why is he a fan favorite? 

Many players were very affected by Ghost’s brutal death, hence why Loose Ends became such an infamous and painful level – and still is, even over 10 years after its release. At the time, his death was horrific, and players are still mourning him to this day. Fans had warmed to Riley throughout the game, charmed by his English slang (I can still hear him saying, “Bloody hell those trucks are bulletproofed!”) and his permanent skull-mask-and-sunglasses ensemble.

Lt. Simon Riley had such a positive reception that shortly after  MW2  released, Wildstorm Productions developed a six-issue comic series,  Modern Warfare 2: Ghost , as a companion to the game. In the series, fans got to explore Ghost’s life before the events of  MW2 , including his childhood and the origins of his iconic skull mask. 

It is revealed that Ghost’s childhood in Manchester, England, was traumatic, mainly due to his abusive father, who used to taunt him with deadly animals. Skulls and their symbolism are a recurring theme in Ghost’s backstory, which explains the mask he wears. When he was a child, his brother used to wear a skull mask at night to scare Riley.

While in the Military, Ghost was ordered to take down a Mexican drug dealer who was also smuggling terrorists into the US. He is instead captured and tortured by the kingpin following a betrayal from the mission’s leader (do you sense a pattern?). His torturers condition him to see skulls on other peoples’ faces to remind him of his abusive father and troubled childhood to get him to kill his betrayer.

Ghost refuses to kill his former comrade, and the cartel leaves him for dead in a coffin underground with the corpse of his betrayer. Later in the series, the cartel he was chasing murder his entire family, except for his father, and frame Riley for the killing. He goes to visit his father one final time in the hospital, and both of them, having slipped into madness after their troubled lives, laugh at the idea of death. His father is then killed.

Riley finds and finally exacts his revenge on his torturers, before being picked up by Task Force 141, beginning his story as fans previously knew it.

The harrowing events in  Modern Warfare 2: Ghost  made Simon Riley a sympathetic figure for fans and allowed them to connect and feel closer to his character. The things he has survived only cement his role as a complete badass and most  CoD  fans remember him fondly. Furthermore, the fact that his mask always hid his face led to lots of speculation about his appearance. Despite his short in-game appearance, he is an icon of the franchise, and the idea that we could see him again in  Modern Warfare  is fascinating.

What can we expect?

Although we don’t have any information about Ghost’s return other than the teaser, he will likely join the game as a multiplayer character or feature in a new Spec Ops mission. Perhaps he will be part of the new Operators team that is also briefly shown during the teaser.

Since there are at least  five years  between the events of the first  Modern Warfare  and  Modern Warfare 2 , there is a possibility that we’ll get to see Ghost in the early days of his role in Task Force 141. Although it’s unlikely that his cameo will delve any deeper into his character, it would still be interesting to see a section of Ghost’s story that we haven’t been party to yet. 

Regardless of how Ghost’s revived role plays out, it will still be a special experience for fans to take a nostalgia trip and see the franchise’s most-loved character alive again.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare  Season 2 begins on Feb. 11.

Who is Ghost? A history on Call of Duty’s favorite Grim Reaper

Noah Pather

Noah Pather

Who is Ghost and why is he so important in the COD community? Well join us as we go over a brief history of the beloved grim reaper of MW2.

With the release of the remaster of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, we are treated to the return of Ghost. He made his debut in the original Modern Warfare 2 series and has been a fan-favorite character since. So, with his return in the remaster, a lot of newer players haven't had the time to get to know Ghost. So, let's dive into who Ghost is and the history of what makes him so iconic.

Ghost's Origins in CoD and Why he's loved

Simon "Ghost" Riley made his debut back in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2. Although he wasn't the player character, Ghost was your right-hand man throughout the majority of the game. The British Special Forces officer was infamously known for his skull pattern mask that never leaves his face. He was the partner in crime of the protagonist of the games. A cold-hearted killer on the outside but a truly good friend to those close to him. He's cemented himself as one of the best characters in the series for his role in the Modern Warfare trilogy.

It's hard to specify one reason as to why the CoD community loves Ghost. Modern Warfare 2 had incredible missions like "No Russian" or "Hotel Whiskey" that became iconic in the game's history and Ghost was with you through it all. But it's hard to pinpoint a specific reason. For some, it's because Modern Warfare 2 was their childhood game, for others it was his loyalty to his partner. But for most, it was his tragic end in the series that cemented his position as an all-time great character.

One mission in CoD MW2 cemented Ghost's position in the hearts of players, which was "loose ends". This mission starts with a phenomenal infiltration of a cottage safehouse that's been occupied by Makarov. And after a narrow escape and important documents acquired, fighting through tooth and nail Roach and Ghost make it out.

At the extraction point, the two meet with Col. Shepard. And seemingly out of nowhere, Shepard ties his loose ends, and shoots both Roach and Ghost. This was an utter shock to every player who's touched the game, as few games kill the main character out of nowhere. And as Ghost lays on the ground, being covered by gasoline, he hears on the radio about Shepard's betrayal. And as Ghost's eyes begin to close, Shepard tosses his cigar onto their bodies, and the pair meet their end. You can check out the full scene here .

The iconic betrayal in the CoD MW2 mission "Loose Ends" (<a href="https://www.reddit.com/r/MemeTemplatesOfficial/comments/fydl6n/mw2_remastered_loose_ends/" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener nofollow">source</a>)

The CoD Modern Warfare series as a whole had a great story throughout its trilogy and really made players fall in love with characters like Ghost. And to see such a cold betrayal of not only the player character, but his-ever loyal partner too? That is a therapy session waiting to happen. But out of the sadness comes love. And that's why the community loves Ghost so much, because of his history with the franchise and how good of a friend he was.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Villain Kevin Gage isn’t Such a Bad Guy

The actor behind Rorke has a sweet side.

is ghost a bad guy in cod

Kevin Gage is the actor who plays Gabriel Rorke in Activision’s new Call of Duty: Ghosts video game. Without giving away any spoilers, Rorke is the main antagonist in the new Campaign mode, and he’s a pretty mean villain. But in real life, the 56 year-old Hollywood actor, who’s starred in movies like Heat, Con Air and G.I. Jane, is pretty nice. He even lets his six-year-old son play Call of Duty with him. Gage talks about working on the new Infinity Ward game in this exclusive interview.

Have you seen your in-game character?

I believe so. When I was doing the game, characters weren’t complete, so I didn’t see myself until the end.  I believe they said that was what the character was going to look like. It looked a lot like me. Then from the teasers, I’ve seen a character that looks like myself, but I haven’t seen his name anywhere on there.

What was this process like for you between the motion capture and the voice acting? 

It was a fairly simple process for me, because they hired me for a couple of reasons. I guess they liked my voice. It had a military kind of cadence that they saw in GI Jane, a movie I did a while back. I had the ability to go through this kind of normal good guy military delivery to this evil kind of delivery. They liked the fact that I could go from one end of the spectrum to the other, because my character turns evil towards the end. I never received a script, and they’re pretty secretive about what they do. But from what I’ve been told, I think I’m a good guy at some point and then I go bad.

What games do you like to play?

I’m not a big gamer by any means. I like Tiger Woods Golf, but I’ve played that so much that I don’t play it anymore. I do enjoy the driving games, Ridge Racer and some of the things like that. I like Grand Theft Auto, obviously. I play around with that. I played Call of Duty in 2005. I played it from beginning to end, and it took me three months, and I turned into one of those guys that’s 12 to 15 hours a day screaming at the TV until I finished it on all of the levels from easy to difficult. Since then, I have not had the time to play video games. I had my first child six years ago, and he can’t wait for this to come out. He’s been playing Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and I will be playing Ghosts with him.

He must be pretty good that he’s six and able to play a shooter.

Those little people just amaze me. They are so underrated regarding everything from their minds to their physical abilities. There are no words to express my feelings regarding children. If I would have known the love and the fascination that came along with raising a child, I would have done this a long time ago.

What was it like when you got the call to be in Call of Duty: Ghosts?

Honestly, I didn’t know that it was Call of Duty. I was finishing a film here in LA, and the next morning was on a plane to Washington to start another. My agent called and asked me if I would be interested in auditioning for a video game, and I told him I couldn’t. They didn’t say it was Call of Duty when I asked, it was a different name. All of the video games when they’re casting use code names. I could not do the audition, and then they called my agent when I finished the film in Washington. They told me they’d pay me for the day to do some voice over stuff, and after that, they would consider whether they were going to hire me for the main character or not. I believe it was after that point that I realized it was Call of Duty, and I really kept my fingers crossed because I was a huge fan of the game. I’d never done a video game before or motion capture, and I was really looking forward to the process, especially being Call of Duty, which has the largest audience on the planet.

The game makes a billion dollars every year when it comes out.  

Yeah, dude. I should have been paid so much more. [Laughs] But they paid me just fine, and I was very grateful for the opportunity. I hope I am included in the next one. It was a lot of fun. They’re wonderful people over there at Activision, Infinity Ward; all those guys. I just had a blast. They were top notch people.

The Call Of Duty Villains Of The Past Decade, Ranked Worst To Best

Often, good villains make a game's campaign a worthwhile experience, and here's a look at the Call of Duty franchise's bad guys from the past decade.

The Call of Duty franchise has been doing well for almost two decades now. Every year Activision has a new developer, like Treyarch, give players a campaign to help tie together the series' ever-expanding lore, as with the case of Cold War's missions . Every hero needs a good villain to fight, and over the past decade, the series has had a variety of villains.

RELATED: 10 Awesome Areas In Call Of Duty: Cold War That Most Players Will Never Find

From rogue soldiers to terrorists wanting to watch the world burn, the villains of the Call of Duty series are comparable to that of action-movie villains. Some though are inevitably stronger than others, and everyone has their favorites. The villains on this list are from the past decade and will be ranked worst to best. Only main villains will be ranked so secondary villains, like Lev Kravchenko and Khaled Al-Asad, will not be included.

10 Corvus (Black Ops 3)

Black Ops 3 perhaps has the most complicated story of any game in the series, and not in a good way. Its villain situation is just as bad as it turns out that the game's true villain was an AI called Corvus.

There is nothing special about Corvus and the whole rogue AI that kills people for getting in the way is just overdone in not only video games but other media as well. Plus it never shuts up about that stupid frozen forest it wants to make humanity's afterlife. It does get points for turning the player's squad against them so there is that at least.

9 Roman Barkov (Modern Warfare 2019)

The newest Modern Warfare was a welcome return to form in terms of the campaign. But its biggest issue though was its villain, Roman Barkov. It is yet another evil Russian dude that basically views everyone in Urzikstan, the fictional country he is occupying, as terrorists and mercilessly rules over them.

It makes the player want to take him down with the numerous guns at their disposal , but he does not have anything special about him when compared to other villains.

8 Gabriel Rorke (Ghosts)

Ghosts is often considered to be one of the worst games in the series with its plot hole filled campaign that could fill a thing of swiss change. But its villain was decent enough in Rorke. He was a former ghost who was brainwashed by the federation into betraying them and his country.

RELATED: 10 Things Only Pro Players Know You Can Do In Call Of Duty: Cold War

It felt like though he could have been so much more. But ultimately he just spends most of the game taunting the heroes and only occasionally acting on his threats which kind of make for some unintentionally hilarious moments . Also how did he end up surviving that swim at the end of the campaign?

7 Perseus (Cold War)

The newest addition to the Call of Duty rogues gallery, there is a lot of mysteries surrounding and hidden plotlines  surrounding the one known as Perseus. His real name is unknown and it has been hinted that Perseus may in fact be an organization, rather than a singular person.

Though this makes the character interesting, there is still a lot of unknowns to this character. Should be fun to see what the next entry will do with this character.

6 Salen Kotch (Infinite Warfare)

Given all the hate Infinite Warfare has gotten from original Call of Duty players, its campaign was better than it had any right to be. Part of that is the ruthless villain Salen Kotch, played by Kit Harrington of Game of Thrones fame.

The man has no sympathy for anyone but his goal of conquering Earth. The man shows time and again that he will do anything to get the job done, no matter the cost to both civilians and his own men.

5 Jonathan Irons (Advanced Warfare)

Though the model and actor portraying the character, Kevin Spacey, has since been disgraced, his performance as Jonathan Irons will be ingrained in those that played Advanced Warfare's campaign. After the death of his son, Irons uses the Atlas Corporation to be the world's leader in achieving world peace.

RELATED: The 5 Best Things About Call of Duty: Cold War (& The 5 Worst)

He will do whatever it takes, even if it means letting thousands die from a nuclear attack he knew would happen for personal gain. The reasoning behind his actions is ultimately the best part of an otherwise mediocre campaign.

4 Edward Richtofen (Zombies)

Though first introduced in World at War, more of his story has been fleshed out in the more recent games. A Nazi that is responsible for the basically all the crazy zombies and zombie bosses running around, Richtofen is as insane as a Nazi could get.

The guy has loves violence and always shouts in joy when killing a zombie. It seems like he wanted something like the zombie apocalypse to happen. Though he seemingly turns himself around, his crimes still plague the world.

3 Nikita Dragovich (Black Ops 1)

Since Black Ops 4 lacked a campaign, an extension had to be made for Black Ops 1. Dragovich is a devious guy who is willing to betray his own men just to advance Soviet interest in Nova 6. Not to mention he tries to brainwash protagonist Alex Mason into becoming a soviet sleeper agent in order to assassinate President Kennedy.

He almost succeeds in launching a mass Nova 6 attack on the U.S but he fails and is killed by Mason. His name comes up again in Cold War  since Perseus tries to use the sleeper agents that Dragovich tried to use in Black Ops 1. Even from the grave he is a threat.

2 Raul Menendez (Black Ops 2)

Perhaps the most sympathetic villain on this list, Raul Menendez is driven mad after his sister is accidently killed by Frank Woods. Though ruthless even before then, this drove Menendez over the edge as he then tricks Woods into seemingly killing his best friend Alex Mason and then shows the latter's body to his son, David.

He returns again in 2025, where he has just one goal in mind: to watch the world burn. Charismatic and methodical, his actions could in fact result in him actually winning in the end by causing global anarchy through a global blackout.

1 Vladimir Makarov (Modern Warfare 2 And 3)

Beating out Menendez just barely is the one and only Makarov, who gets under the player's skin just about every time he is on screen. The man is willing to do whatever it takes in restoring Russia to its former Soviet glory. The man ignites World War 3 by massacring hundreds of his own countrymen at an airport and frames the U.S for it.

This causes the deaths of millions from the war and ends with him being the reason fan-favorite Soap dies in front of a devastated Captain Price. Oh and he was also responsible for the nuke in the first Modern Warfare. All of this makes for perhaps one of the most satisfying villain deaths in gaming as Price hangs him from a wire at hotel in Dubai. Karma is real after all.

Call Of Duty Villains Ranked By How Much They Scarred Me Emotionally

Call Of Duty Villains Ranked By How Much They Scarred Me Emotionally

Featured Image Credit: Activision

Unsurprisingly for a series that's dropped one game a year for well over a decade now, Call Of Duty has amassed a mighty collection of video game heroes. More importantly, however, it's also produced its fair share of bastards.

To be clear, I'm not talking about those players who scream down the mic and call you a hacker when you kill them, but the actual bad guys that the various COD development teams have created as part of the numerous campaigns and story experiences.

Join me then, dear reader, as we embark on a voyage of discovery. Using a complex algorithm that I couldn't possibly explain to you in less than 10,000 words, I've definitely ranked the ten biggest scumbags in Call Of Duty history. My main takeaway? Modern Warfare and Black Ops really are just the most interesting bunch of games in the franchise, aren't they? Anyway, read on and enjoy this stroll down bad guy memory lane.

Gabriel T. Rorke (Call Of Duty: Ghosts)

Call Of Duty: Ghosts / Credit: Activision

Here we have the only character not to have originated in a Modern Warfare or Black Ops game. Don't blame me for the lack of variety, they just have better villains. Anyway, what makes Gabriel T. Rorke such an astonishing douche?

For my money, it's the fact that the former leader of the Ghost team-turned-leader of the Federation Armed Forces was so desperate for revenge. He was so thirsty for some kind of payback, in fact, that that he tracked down his former teammate Elias Walker and brutally murdered the poor guy in front of his two kids.

I get Rorke thinks he was "left for dead" and all that, but come on . Killing a guy in front of his children is a serious party foul.

Friedrich Steiner (Call Of Duty: Black Ops)

Call Of Duty: Black Ops / Credit: Activision

Steiner immediately gets a spot on this list for working with the Nazi organization Waffen-SS. Frankly, that's more than enough to secure anyone a spot as a disgusting and hateful piece of scum - but Steiner clearly wanted to excel to new heights of scumbaggery.

See, Steiner was also the man behind the deadly neurotoxin Nova 6, a chemical weapon that could instantly end the life of any human being. A pretty catastrophic thing to fall into anyone's hands, I would have thought. It wasn't ideal then, that Steiner agreed to continue refining Nova 6 for the Soviets in exchange for his own sorry life.

Edward Richtofen (Call Of Duty: Zombies)

Call Of Duty: World At War / Credit: Activision

Another Nazi scientist, although Richtofen is decidedly worse than Steiner. While Steiner did a lot of what he did to try and look after his own self interests, Richtofen was considerably worse. He was a fanatic who truly believed all the awful things he did were for the greater good.

What kind of awful things was he involved in, you ask? How about torturing and experimenting on live humans, turning them into zombies as part of a misguided attempt to create the perfect soldier? Yeah, that definitely qualifies as awful. Anyone who's referred to as "The Butcher" can't be good news. Unless they're about to sell you six sausages for a pound, that is.

Nikita Dragovich (Call Of Duty: Black Ops)

Call Of Duty: Black Ops / Credit: Activision

I mean, with a surname like Dragovich you couldn't really be anything other than a a classic bad guy, could you? Sure enough, Nikita Dragovich is a real piece of work. Utterly devoid of emotion and driven by a single-minded desire for power, this piece of work created Soviet sleeper agents, treated his soldiers like disposable pawns, and "encouraged" Steiner to refine Nova 6 into an even deadlier chemical weapon.

Oh, and in the Call Of Duty universe, he's essentially the man responsible for the assassination of John F. Kennedy. That's pretty evil.

Imran Zakhaev (Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare)

Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare / Credit: Activision

A Cold War arms dealer with a mercenary army and a fearsome arsenal at his disposal. Not exactly someone you'd want babysitting your kids, is he? No, Imran Zakhaev is (or rather was) one of the scariest SOBs in Call Of Duty history. Unable to let go of his blinkered view of the past, he was willing to murder millions if it meant bringing back the Russia he loved.

A man with access to a near-unlimited supply of weapons, as well as a cast-iron belief he's right and everyone else is wrong is... well, it's a horrifying combination.

Khaled Al-Asad (Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare)

Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare / Credit: Activision

When people call you "The Second Horsemen", it's unlikely that you're gonna turn out to be all sweetness and light. Certainly, I wouldn't want to bump into Khaled Al-Asad in a dark alley. Ruthless, murderous, and desperate for power, the first time we meet Asad he kills President Yasir Al-Fulani on live television . He doesn't get any better from there.

His most heinous act, without a doubt, is the detonation of a nuclear warhead in his own city , killing 30,000 troops and countless innocent civilians.

Lev Kravchenko (Call Of Duty: Black Ops)

Call Of Duty: Black Ops / Credit: Activision

Lev Kravchenko served as a Colonel in the Soviet military, ultimately securing a position at the side of Dragovich. A sadistic, brutal killer who carried out orders without question, Kravchenko established his evil bastard credentials fairly early on. As a younger man, he mutilated and murdered his own sister when she revealed she had no romantic interest in Dragovich.

Things didn't get much better from there. Kravchenko was soaked in the blood of his enemies, gleefully following Dragovich anywhere if it meant he could attempt to satisfy his undying lust for violence and death. Dragovich might have been the brains, but his muscle was a terrifying monster all of its own.

Raul Menendez (Call Of Duty: Black Ops II)

Call Of Duty: Black Ops II / Credit: Activision

Nicknamed "The Messiah of the 99%", Raul is an extremely likable and charming fella on the face of it. Unfortunately, he's also the leader of a terrorist organisation dedicated to bringing the West to its knees. Ain't that always the way?

Menedez's highlight reel includes taking control of the entire U.S. Military's drone fleet and using it to cause countless casualties around the world. Horiffic, yes, but the worst thing about him? He's got a massive YouTube following. Raul Menendez is basically our first look at the damage an influencer could do if they decided to use their power for evil. Because, you know, that's never happened, has it?

Commander Shepherd (Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2)

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 / Credit: Activision

Is Commander Shepherd the most-hated character in all of Call Of Duty? I can't speak for everyone, but he certainly boils my rhubarbs. Shepherd taught an entire generation of gamers the true meaning of betrayal in one of Call Of Duty's most shocking moments.

I'm still not entirely over the fact he murdered Ghost and Roach in cold blood, betraying everything we thought he stood for in the process. The worst part of all though, is the way he turns his death at the hands of Soap and Price into an exercise in propaganda. Shepherd dies a "war hero", while the real heroes were reduced to criminals. What an evil sack of old farts he is.

Vladimir Makarov (Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 & 3)

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 / Credit: Activision

Who could possibly be a more terrifying threat than the likes of Khaled Al-Asad and Commander Shepherd? Probably the man who was pulling the strings the entire time. Vladimir Makarov is pure evil. Patient, manipulative, and immensely cunning. Al-Asad might have detonated that nuclear warhead, but he did so on Makarov's orders.

Almost every shocking or controversial moment in the Modern Warfare games came as a result of this terrorists desire to ignite a war between the West and Russia, in fact. The intensely graphic "No Russian" mission, for instance, in which Makarov leads a band of men through an airport to gun down innocent civilians. Few video game levels have left quite the same impact as that one.

Makarov's deadly game of chess was, without a doubt, the driving force behind three of the best and most surprising games in the Call Of Duty series.

The subject of this article appears in Call of Duty: Ghosts

Call of Duty: Ghosts (also known as Call of Duty 10 or simply Ghosts ) is the tenth main Call of Duty game . It was developed by Infinity Ward , Neversoft [1] [2] and Raven Software . [3] It was confirmed that a Call of Duty game was in development on February 7th, 2013, [4] Ghosts was officially revealed on May 21st, 2013 via a Reveal Trailer during the Xbox One reveal. It was released on the 5th of November 2013 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC, and Wii U, and was a launch title on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Set ten years after a devastating mass event , the United States of America is no longer a superpower, with its economy and government in ashes.

Call of Duty: Ghosts features a completely new setting, characters, and system. It still features linear sections, but it is said to have "easter eggs" within the game to alter missions slightly. The setting of the game is a war-torn U.S.A. ten years after an ODIN strike , launched via satellite after a hijacking, devastated the landscape and invasion from the Federation, a conglomeration of several South American countries. The single player features a dog companion named Riley , fighting in outer space, a story featuring a team of " Ghosts ," who are remnants of elite U.S. Special Operations Forces teams, and various other features.

Setting and Characters

The game's main protagonists are the Ghosts, a force of U.S. Special Operations personnel trained to conduct clandestine missions behind enemy lines. The unit is led by retired U.S. Army Captain Elias Walker (Stephen Lang). He is joined by his sons Logan Walker and David "Hesh" Walker , along with Kick and Keegan P. Russ, a trained German Shepherd named Riley , and Cdr. Thomas A. Merrick of the Navy SEALs.

Call of Duty: Ghosts is set in an alternate timeline from our world that follows the nuclear destruction of the Middle East. The oil-producing nations of South America form the Federation in response to the ensuing global economic crisis and quickly grow into a global superpower, swiftly invading and conquering Central America and the Caribbean. The game's main antagonist is Gabriel T. Rorke , a former Ghost leader who eventually turned into a traitor after being captured and brainwashed using torture and hallucinogens who now works with the Federation.

Plot Synopsis

The game begins with Elias Walker telling his so ns about the legend of how the Ghosts first appeared. Meanwhile in space, the Federation hijacks the controlling space station of the Orbital Defense Initiative ( ODIN ), an orbital superweapon that utilizes kinetic bombardment, and use it to destroy several cities in the southwestern United States. Two American astronauts, Mosley and Baker , attempt to defend ODIN from falling into enemy hands, but are ultimately unable to stop them from firing it on the United States. With no other choice, the astronauts decide to scuttle the station by sabotaging its key systems, the explosion killing Mosley and causing the station to self destruct. Baker is then burnt in Earth's orbit along with Mosley's corpse. Elias and the young Logan and David, "Hesh", narrowly escape the destruction of San Diego.

Ten years later , the United States has fought the Federation to a stalemate along a front that comprises the destroyed cities, also known as "No Man's Land". Logan and Hesh are part of a US unit commanded by Elias and during a patrol, they spot an American is working with the Federation who is called Gabriel T. Rorke . Soon after , the brothers are ambushed and rescued by mem bers of the Ghosts who are seeking their companion Ajax , who was captured by Rorke. Logan and Hesh join the mission to rescue Ajax , but arrive too late to rescue him and after he is killed by Federation soldiers, they reunite with their father who reveals himself as the leader of Ghosts. Believing his sons are ready to join his unit, Elias welcomes them into the Ghosts and they learn from him that Rorke once were their leader. However, during a successful mission to assassinate General Almagro , then president of the Federation in the capital Caracas, Elias is forced to abandon Rorke, who was presumed dead, but instead turned traitor and is now hunting down his former companions.

The Ghosts devise a massive attack in order to capture Rorke, but while flying back home, Rorke's men attack their plane and rescue him. The team then is forced to land deep into the Amazon Jungle , where they witness a rocket being launched with an unknown purpose. Once reunited and rescued, the Ghosts storm a Federation laboratory in the Andes and obtain data regarding a classified operation in a factory at Rio De Janeiro . To secure a path to the factory, the Ghosts destroy the Federation's Atlas oil platform located in Antartica to lure the enemy fleet away from their objective and sink their remaining destroyer guarding the Brazilian coast . Once inside the factory, the team discovers that the Federation had reverse engineered the ODIN's technology and developed their own orbital bombardment system. After destroying the factory, Elias and his sons regroup in Las Vegas but are captured by Rorke who kills Elias in front of Hesh and Logan who later find an opportunity to escape.

Realizing that once the Federation's LOKI become operational they will be defeated for good, the United States pool all their remaining forces in a synchronized attack to take down an enemy space center in Chile while a small team of soldiers boards a shuttle to take over the Federation satellites in space . Once both objectives are completed, Hesh and Logan pursue Rorke to avenge their father and are seemingly successful , only to find out during the aftermath that Rorke survived their battle. Logan attempts to defend his wounded brother, but has his arm broken and is kidnapped by Rorke, with the former Ghost announcing his plans to try and brainwash Logan into becoming a Federation Agent like himself. In a post-credits scene, Logan is seen being kept inside a pit in the jungle, presumably going through the same torture methods that Rorke went through.

Achievements/Trophies

Multiplayer.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Create-A-Soldier multiplayer feature.

The multiplayer mode of Call of Duty: Ghosts includes features never before put into the Call of Duty series, such as character customization, dynamic maps, and many new movements such as sliding , leaning around corners, and better interaction with the environment. Sliding is done the same way as drop shooting on previous Call of Duty games. Leaning is done by standing close to a wall and pressing the ADS button. As an addition, the playable character now performs special animations when climbing objects (instead of their weapons simply disappearing off the screen), and crawling animations when prone return from Call of Duty: Black Ops II . In Call of Duty: Ghosts , guns do more damage than they ever have before, meaning that players die quickly but also get kills quickly.

The maps in Ghosts are bigger than they have been in the previous games in the Call of Duty series. Some maps have dynamic parts to them, such as the bus in Chasm or the Halon Gas in Sovereign. There is also more customization than there ever has been before. Players can change their character's head, headgear, gender, uniform, and many other accessories.

The system of prestige and unlocking weapons and attachments is completely different as well. In order to prestige, the player unlocks a squad member with squad points and ranks it up to level sixty. Once the player has leveled up all ten squad members, they become max prestige. In order to unlock weapons, attachments, and equipment, the player simply purchases them with squad points, or can wait until they reach a certain level. The player must unlock weapons for each individual squad member.

Players that pre-ordered Call of Duty: Ghosts received a bonus map, called Free Fall .

Along with the update for the Nemesis DLC , the game now has a "Fresh Start" feature, that works very similarly to the Fresh Start feature from Call of Duty: Black Ops II . Using a Fresh Start will reset the character's level to Prestige 0, Level 1, and will completely erase all combat statistics from their profile (Kill to Death Ratio, Win to Loss ratio, Preferred Weapon, etc.). There are two major changes to this system: The player must be at the highest level possible in order to use a Fresh Start (completed Prestige 10, level 60), and all weapon camouflages will not be lost upon using the Fresh Start. Fresh Starting and playing afterwards will almost always have a severe impact on the player's statistics, as their previous statistics in their Combat Record may not reflect their present statistics.

Multiplayer Maps

In Call of Duty: Ghosts , for the first time, the player is able to alter their experience on each map, with Dynamic Maps being even more so than before. Examples given include knocking down a stack of logs, destroying a map with the new K.E.M. Strike killstreak reward , collapsing a gas Station and blowing up doors. There are limits to these factors though, and they are only available on preset spots (descriptions are under "Dynamics" in each maps' pages).

Squads is a new game mode in Ghosts. In it, the player can play with AI controlled teammates or even with friends against AI. XP is shared between Multiplayer and Squads, so leveling up in Squads helps the player's character in Multiplayer as well. There are five modes within Squads:

  • Squad vs Squad : Involves two opposing players versing 1v1, with squad members filling in the rest of the team, making 6v6. This mode can be played on Team Deathmatch , Domination and Kill Confirmed .
  • Wargame : The player and five other squad members verse a team of six opposing bots in a mode set to "replicate" the full MP experience. This mode is available on Team Deathmatch, Domination, Kill Confirmed, Cranked and Blitz in online matches. In Local matches it can be played in these game modes plus Search and Rescue and Hunted . If the player has played Drop Zone , Reinforce or Search & Destroy in a Local or Private match recently then they will be able to play Wargame on these additionally if going into Recent Game Modes in Local matches.
  • Safeguard Extended: Safeguard with 40 rounds.
  • Safeguard Infinite: Safeguard with 100 waves.
  • Squad Assault : The player and up to five other players or squad members verse a squad consisting of another player's squad.

On August 14, in the Multiplayer Reveal, Mark Rubin introduced a similar customization system to BOII's Pick-Ten System for Perks:

"Every Perk has a set point value from 1 to 5, and you have 8 points to use how you want. So for example: I could choose 4 Perks, each valued at 2, or 8 Perks, each valued at 1. I could also choose to get rid of my Secondary and my Equipment and get up to 11 Perks."

The classic three-tiered perk system has been done away with, replaced by seven categories of five perks. These tiers are Speed, Handling, Stealth, Awareness, Resistance, Equipment and Elite. Speed will feature perks meant to allow the player to move faster overall, Handling will let the player move more consistently and better, Stealth perks will grant immunities to certain things in the game. Awareness perks will give the player a better overall view of the game, and what is going on around them, Resistance is set to grant resistance to common factors of the game, like explosives. Equipment will give the player's Tacticals, Lethals and Attachments a healthy boost, while Elite perks are more based around situational benefits.

Pointstreaks

Pointstreaks return from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 , and are available as Assault, Support or Specialist pointstreaks. Assault pointstreaks include the brand new SAT COM killstreak, "Riley": the five point Guard Dog streak and the new Maniac Juggernaut pointstreak. Support pointstreaks include the Ammo Crate (get ammo and receive a random weapon), the new MAAWS launcher and the Helo Scout .

Extinction Mode

Extinction Teaser CODG

Extinction is a new game mode featured in the Call of Duty: Ghosts ; the players' objectives are to kill the attacking aliens , but the other objectives vary between maps. Most have the player destroy Hives using a Laser Drill . It plays similar to Survival Mode , with various weapons and upgrades. As the player progresses through the game and completes challenges, they unlock skill points, which they use to upgrade their load out. Guns are bought throughout random spots in the map, and equipment and attachments are found by scavenging. There are 30 levels, with different defenses unlocked as the player progresses. Once the player reaches level 30, they prestige and have the option of using relics, which allow the player to level up faster. Every time the player prestiges, they can use one more relic.

An update added a new game mode to Extinction known as Chaos Mode , which acts like the similarly-named game mode in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 known as Special Ops Chaos . The player is put in a part of the map they choose to play, and they must pick up new weapons and other pickups to survive. It is timed rather than round-based, and it will keep going until the combo runs out after the time runs out, or if the players die.

  • The first letters of the map packs for Call of Duty: Ghosts spell out ODIN : O nslaught, D evastation, I nvasion, N emesis.
  • In an interview with IGN, Mark Rubin said that the game's campaign will feature hidden sub-missions which can be activated by the player, but were not featured in the actual game.
  • Considering this was a next-gen title, there are major differences between Xbox One/PS4 and Xbox 360/PS3 as well as the Wii U version. Graphics have been enhanced on Xbox One/PS4. On PC, just like in the previous games in the series, there are customizable graphical options including the option to use Motion Blur, despite being used during in-game cutscenes. Also, on Xbox 360, the game splits into 2 discs. Disc 1 is the game itself and Disc 2 is to install the Campaign part. This is also the same case with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare . Also, the game is forced to 16:9 widescreen if the standard 4:3 screen format is used. The Wii U version, like Call of Duty: Black Ops II and all of the Call of Duty titles released on the Wii, has Wii Remote & Nunchuck support. Despite this, this was the final Call of Duty game released on the Wii U and the last one to be released on a Nintendo console.
  • A mantling bug allows the player to equip most weapons in their left hand, causing the gun to float, iron sights to be unused, and sniper scopes to not function.

Is Cod Ghost Good or Bad?

Are you wondering whether Call of Duty: Ghosts is a good or bad game? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we will take an in-depth look at the popular first-person shooter and evaluate its pros and cons.

The storyline of Call of Duty: Ghosts is set in the near future, where the United States has been weakened by a devastating event. You play as a member of an elite group known as the “Ghosts,” who are fighting against a powerful enemy force known as the “Federation.”

  • The storyline is engaging and keeps you hooked throughout the game.
  • The characters are well-developed and have distinct personalities.
  • The game introduces new gameplay mechanics, such as controlling a trained attack dog.
  • The storyline lacks depth and relies heavily on generic military tropes.
  • Some players may find it difficult to connect with the characters due to their limited development.
  • The gameplay mechanics can feel repetitive after extended playtime.

In terms of graphics, Call of Duty: Ghosts offers stunning visuals that push the limits of what previous games in the series have achieved. The environments are highly detailed, and character models are realistic.

  • The graphics are visually impressive and enhance immersion in the game.
  • The attention to detail in both environments and character models is commendable.
  • The graphics may not be as groundbreaking compared to other contemporary games in the same genre.
  • Some players may experience performance issues on lower-end hardware.

Multiplayer

The multiplayer mode is a significant aspect of Call of Duty: Ghosts and has been a staple of the series. It offers various game modes, maps, and customization options to keep players engaged.

  • The multiplayer mode provides a wide range of options for both casual and competitive players.
  • The inclusion of new game modes adds variety to the overall experience.
  • The customization options allow players to personalize their characters and weapons.
  • Some players may find it difficult to balance gameplay due to certain overpowered weapons or abilities.
  • The matchmaking system can be inconsistent, resulting in imbalanced matches.

In conclusion, Call of Duty: Ghosts offers an engaging storyline, stunning graphics, and a robust multiplayer mode. However, it does have its drawbacks, such as generic storytelling and repetitive gameplay.

Ultimately, whether you consider it good or bad depends on your personal preferences as a player. If you enjoy fast-paced first-person shooters with a focus on multiplayer, then Call of Duty: Ghosts is worth considering. However, if you prioritize innovative gameplay mechanics and immersive storytelling, you might find other games more appealing.

So grab your gear and decide for yourself whether Call of Duty: Ghosts is your cup of tea!

Jeffrey Epstein list: Who is named in court filings?

  • Published 6 days ago

Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Michael Jackson

The names of dozens of people connected to the late sex offender Jeffrey Epstein were made public with the release of court documents. Who are they?

Public figures including Prince Andrew and former US President Bill Clinton are among the associates, friends and alleged victims named in the 900 pages unsealed on the order of a judge in New York.

Both the former US president and the British royal deny any knowledge of Epstein's crimes.

Many names in the documents are mentioned in passing as part of various legal proceedings, and their inclusion does not suggest wrongdoing related to Epstein.

They contain no major new allegations about Epstein nor revelations about his associates.

Epstein took his own life in jail in 2019 while awaiting trial. His friend and former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell is serving 20 years in prison for child sex trafficking.

Who is now named in the documents?

Prince Andrew

The court papers include the testimony of Johanna Sjoberg who describes meeting Prince Andrew at Epstein's home in New York in 2001

Her statement, which had previously been partly revealed, describes an encounter in which she claims Prince Andrew touched her breast.

Ms Sjoberg, then aged 20, had been at college when she had been recruited by Maxwell, initially she believed as an assistant before finding that she was encouraged to deliver sexual massages for Epstein, which she resisted.

  • What do documents say about Prince Andrew?

Prince Andrew has rejected any wrongdoing, including in his later settlement with Ms Giuffre in 2022.

In that settlement Prince Andrew had said he "regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others".

Extract from court documents

Bill Richardson

In her deposition, Ms Giuffre says she was forced to have sex with prominent figures including New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson.

Before his death last year, Mr Richardson denied ever meeting Ms Giuffre, and he was not charged with any crime

Extract from court documents

Bill Clinton

The former US president is mentioned a number of times but there is no suggestion of any criminality.

Johanna Sjoberg, one of Prince Andrew's accusers, testified that Epstein told her that Mr Clinton "likes them young, referring to girls".

Another woman, Virginia Giuffre, who brought the lawsuit at the heart of these court documents, also mentions the American politician several times.

Although she makes no allegations against Mr Clinton, she was trying to get him to testify under oath about his relationship with Epstein, describing him as a "key person".

  • Who was Jeffrey Epstein?
  • WATCH: The secret lives of Maxwell and Epstein

She had previously said Mr Clinton visited Mr Epstein's private island but in the court documents both Maxwell and Epstein dispute this. There is also no record in pilot logs of Mr Clinton going there.

Mr Clinton himself has said he flew on Epstein's plane four times, including twice to Africa, because they worked together on humanitarian projects.

But those meetings took place before the financier came under investigation, he said, and he had no knowledge of his crimes.

Donald Trump

The document also includes testimony about Donald Trump from Ms Sjoberg about a diversion Epstein's plane made to New Jersey to visit the businessman in 2001 at one of his casinos.

When pilots said their plane could not land in New York and would need to stop in Atlantic City, Epstein said he would call up Trump and drop by to see him, she said.

The documents contain no alleged wrongdoing by Mr Trump.

Ms Sjoberg is asked whether she ever gave Mr Trump a massage and she said she did not.

Extract from court documents

Michael Jackson

Ms Sjoberg said she had met the singer through Epstein, although she did not allege any wrongdoing by him.

Aliens at a Miami mall? Police say ‘lol’

Police respond at the Bayside Marketplace in Miami on Jan. 1, 2024.

Teens running, police converging and a grey splotch that appears to be moving: Videos from an outdoor mall in Miami stoked wild claims this week on social media that aliens had landed on Earth. But the truth is far more terrestrial.

On Monday, a group of roughly 50 teenagers caused a riot at Bayside Marketplace, an outdoor mall roughly 5 miles from South Beach, according to the Miami Police Department.

The teens were setting off fireworks, which led to a panic as some assumed there was a shooting, said Miami Police Department public information officer Michael Vega. Four teens were arrested.

Police were dispatched “for crowd control due to the juveniles refusing to leave,” Vega said in an email to NBC News. “Some businesses were temporarily closed to allow us to clear the area.”

In the days after the incident, users on social media launched a speculation frenzy, homing in on what they described as “Miami Mall Aliens.” Some suggested police were responding to aliens, not teenagers. Several people reviewed video of the incident circulating online and claimed they could see an alien figure in the grainy footage. Others quickly posted memes.

While many of the responses online appeared lighthearted, the posts show just how quickly and easily misinformation can spread on social media. The response also underscores an uptick in interest in extraterrestrial activity, from hearings in Congress last summer about “unidentified aerial phenomena” or “UAPs” to Mexico’s Congress showing off what it claimed were “nonhuman” aliens. Both of those events also became prime meme fodder.

However, Vega said aliens had nothing to do with Monday’s incident.

“There were no aliens,” he wrote in the email. “No airports were closed. Nothing is being withheld from the public. LOL.”

Still, by Friday afternoon, “Miami Mall Alien” was trending on the social media site X.

“10ft Aliens/Creatures (caught on camera?) fired at inside and outside Miami Mall, media silent, cops are covering it up saying kids were fighting with fireworks, yet all these cop cars, & air traffic stopped that night except for black military choppers…and no media coverage,” claimed one post on X, which on Friday appeared to trigger a slew of conspiracy theories and memes.

One person posted what appeared to be an AI image of a generic alien holding shopping bags, and joked it was “The Miami Mall Alien.”

Another person shared an image of golfer Tiger Woods holding out his hand, as if to shake another person’s hand, with the caption: “Me to the aliens if I’d been at the Miami mall.”

Others remarked that the new year was bound to be wild if aliens had been spotted mere days into January.

“5th day into the New Year now people spotting Aliens in the Miami Mall 2024 is in for one hell of a ride,” the person wrote.

There were, of course, some who wondered: If there was an alien sighting, where’s the proof?

“Everybody have cell phones, but nobody have an up close video of the 8-10 foot alien by the Miami mall?” wrote one X user .
