Only True CoD Gamers Will Answer These Questions Right!


"We are the most powerful military force in the history of man. Every fight is our fight. Because what happens over here, matters over there. We don't get to sit one out. Learning to use the tools of modern warfare is the difference between the prospering of your people and utter destruction. We can't give you freedom. But we can give you the know-how to acquire it. And that, my friends, is worth more than a whole army base of steel. Sure it matters who's got the biggest stick, but it matters a helluva lot more who's swinging it. This is a time for heroes. A time for legends. History is written by the victors. Let's get to work."

In the same way that the Call of Duty games have a ton of fantastic quotes like that one from Modern Warfare 2, the series also boasts some excellent characters. From the infamous Task Force 141 team you see above you to Seal Team Six, we'll be looking at some of the most memorable Call of Duty characters - for reasons good and bad - today.

If you're prepared to take this quiz, then also be prepared for spoilers from the following games and their respective series:

Modern Warfare 

World at War/Black Ops


Advanced Warfare

Infinite Warfare

With that said, now is the perfect time to load up, study your dossier, and take the war to the b-----ds that deserve it. As one famous war hero in the series says, let's get to work.

Question 1

Who am I?

We start our quiz off with...well, if you can't get this one right, maybe you should try something else on this site. Arguably the most well-known character not only in the Call of Duty series but of the entire first-person shooter genre, this British cigar smoker is rarely seen without his bucket hat and trademark pistol. Taking part in both the original Call of Duty campaigns and the Modern Warfare series, the good guys wouldn't be speaking their native tongue if not for prisoner 627. Who is this?

Question 2

Who am I?

While Price is potentially the most important character in the Modern Warfare series, his protege and, later, second-in-command is just as vital to Task Force 141. Initially silent but deadly not unlike Claude from Grand Theft Auto III, this brute quickly became a fan favorite; Activision definitely took notice, including a 'journal' of his in the Collector's Edition of Modern Warfare 3 where key moments, battles, and drawings were all included from this man's point of view. Years after his death, we're still in mourning. Please get this right.

Question 3

Who am I?

And if we're going to talk about the two most recognizable characters in Call of Duty history from the good side, we may as well talk about the most recognizable villain. Though he initially comes off as a stereotypical Russian war criminal, this man is pure evil, somehow managing a way to take each act up to eleven - and remember, this was happening well before the series went sci-fi. Shooting up an airport? Check. Kidnapping the Russian President? Check. Gas bombing Europe? Check. Who is this?

Question 4

Who am I?

When Modern Warfare 2 came out in 2009, some fans were surprised that it wouldn't be that close to the end of the first game; MW2 takes place five years after Price and Soap take out the Ultra Nationalists and begins in the Middle East, making it easy to forget what the world went through in 2011. However, this war hero definitely remembers the nuke from the original Modern Warfare, embarking on a plan to make the world realize America is not to be messed with. Who was this?

Question 5

Who am I?

Ever since the nuke went off in the first Modern Warfare game in 2007, Call of Duty writers have constantly been trying to up the ante and come up with shocking moment after shocking moment. No Russian? Check. The twists in Black Ops? Those work too. But the simple introduction of a German Shepherd that can sniff out bombs and enemies? Yeah, we like this decision. Chemical warfare is dark and all, but we need more puppies. What is the dog's name?

Question 6

Who am I?

Well, we're finally leaving the Modern Warfare series and traveling back in time to the 1960s and the original Black Ops game...or, forward in time to Black Ops II, where this picture comes from. The first Black Ops' protagonist and an excellent sniper, the twists and turns the original game's plot take with him were crazy at the time - and, arguably, set the series up for more insane twists later. Like with Soap and Price, you shouldn't have a problem getting this right.

Question 7

Who am I?

When things ended how they did in the original Black Ops, Alex Mason settled down back home in Alaska and had a family. This, right here with his stubble and slight resemblance to Jon Bernthal, is Mason's son. Originally holding a deep resentment towards his father because of Alex's own upbringing, this SEAL Team Six member tries to honor the elder Mason attains the rank of Lieutenant Commander as he takes on...well, someone that we'll get to later on. What was Alex's son named?

Question 8

Who am I?

Alex Mason's best friend and a surrogate uncle to young David Mason, the loyalty and bravery displayed by this Marine was well needed in the Black Ops series. Despite suffering injury after injury and even being forced into games of Russian Roulette, this soldier keeps calm and continues to lead everywhere from Vietnam to battles on the home front. Thankfully for many fans, he returned in Black Ops II and had a major role, even making it to his 90s. Not bad! Who is this?

Question 9

Who am I?

If you played Grand Theft Auto IV, you'll surely remember Brucie Kibbutz commenting Niko Bellic on his 'Red Army' skills. Here, we have a character that exemplifies just how dangerous the Russians were during World War II. The son of a musician, this Russian captain is nicknamed the 'Hero of Berlin' and 'The Wolf', though he's more of a snake to Alex Mason. Oh, and that beard isn't half bad either. Do you remember who this infamous Russian villain was?

Question 10

Who am I?

There are fan favorites, there are legendary characters, and there's this British SAS Lieutenant. A teammate of John Price and Soap MacTavish with Bravo Six, fans quickly fell in love with this character for his sharp wit and excellent combat tactics; neither of those could save him, however, from a death in the first Modern Warfare game's final mission. To Soap's disappointment and disapproval, the death was covered up along with the entire Nuclear Crisis in Russia. What was this character named?

Question 11

Who am I?

A British S.A.S. soldier with a traumatic upbringing, including an abusive father and a drug addicted mother, this Task Force 141 elite is codenamed 'Ghost'. Right, as if the mask didn't give it away. What, we were supposed to have you guess his code name and put Punisher, Executor, and Skeletor as the other options? Ghost is more or less an expy of Gaz and both, sadly, suffer the same fate: death by way of a head shot from the game's big bad. What was Ghost's real name?

Question 12

Who am I?

Though it's no Modern Warfare or Black Ops, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare did a fair number of things right, especially with their protagonist and playable character. Fiercely loyal to his home and his crew - and willing to risk his own life multiple times to ensure his soldiers survive - this Earth-born (that matters in Infinite Warfare, trust me) captain was as strong a main character as we've had in years. Was he Soap or Alex Mason? No, but he didn't have to be. Who is this?

Question 13

Who am I?

It's time to face facts, folks: you can't do a sci-fi video game without a wisecracking, but extremely dangerous, robot. Infinite Warfare introduced such a character as one of Nick's main allies - and, for other members of the crew, nothing more than an annoying piece of scrap metal. Possessing a surprising amount of depth, this killer robot will likely remind Star Wars fans of a certain assassin droid that favored the term 'meatbags.' What was this robot's name designation?

Question 14

Who am I?

That whole part in E3N, or Ethan's, section about members of Nick Reyes' crew disliking the robot was mainly about this soldier. A Staff Sergeant who clings to traditions from the old world, this British-Titanian soldier is a father of three and leaves his family behind when, in an attempt to save a civilian, he's scorched to death by a solar flash. It was not a pretty moment, especially with the man that he was and who he became. What was this character's name?

Question 15

Who am I?

When you're nicknamed "The Messiah of the 99%" despite missing your right eye, that has to mean you're a definitive badass. One of the oldest antagonists in the series so far (his canonical death age is 61, while he's around 62 or 63 in the non-canon death), this Nicaraguan drug runner achieves his goal by way of excellent charisma. Even when he dies, a video says, "My death will shine light upon ubiquitous darkness." Yeah, that charisma is definitely something special. Who is this?

Question 16

Who am I?

We've talked about Modern Warfare and Infinite Warfare, but what about...Advanced Warfare. I know you're already oohing, but I want to direct this quote from Advanced Warfare's protagonist your way. "We come into this world with our eyes closed. And most of us choose to live our whole lives that way. We blindly follow anyone who would lead us... giving ourselves over to anything that provides us with a sense of purpose. For me, it was the Marines." Awesome. What is this character's name?

Question 17

Who am I?

Hey look, it's Kevin Spacey! Yes, this was supposedly one of Advanced Warfare's biggest selling points: a motion captured Kevin Spacey blurring the lines between good and bad in a Call of Duty game. Oh, the humanity. Spacey was great in this role and, fine, maybe Advanced Warfare wasn't as bad as we originally made it out to be. With all of the promotional material featuring this character, you should have no problems getting this one right. Otherwise, Kevin Spacey is coming after you.

Question 18

Who am I?

In the grand scheme of things, you wouldn't think that a character who only appears in the introductory mission matters much for the plot. But, in the case of Jonathan Irons' son and Jack Mitchell's best friend, this character's impact is felt certainly after his death in South Korea. Sacrificing himself to save Jack, the younger Irons winds up on life support before the plug is pulled. We won't ask you for the last name because he's Jonathan's son, but what's his first name?

Question 19

Who am I?

First off, when Michael Rooker - best known for his performance as Yondu in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Merle Dixon in The Walking Dead - is lending his voice to a character, you know that things are going to be awesome. A main character in Black Ops II, Rooker's Alabama accent is on full display as this Seal Team Six veteran - he starts the game off approaching his 50s - kicks major ass throughout the game. What is his name?

Question 20

Who am I?

And from the futuristic world of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and 'Advanced Warfare', we go all the way back to the 1940s to meet this World at War character. Yet another Russian, this character - who fought alongside Viktor Reznov, which makes sense given 'World at War' was a prequel to 'Black Ops' - is the playable character in the Russian campaign and was unfortunately killed way too soon. This one should be easy even for those who only played Black Ops...

Question 21

Who am I?

Of all the non-playable characters on this list that aren't antagonists, this may be the easiest one - and we never even see his real face! John Price's mentor with the S.A.S., this Captain joins his protege on a mission to Pripyat to assassinate a certain major villain...who is rescued by another certain major villain. Trust us when we say that playing these missions again in 'Modern Warfare Remastered' were fantastic. If you can't get this one right and you're still taking this quiz...

Question 22

Who am I?

With only one arm and looking like Walter White, this character was already awesome. It's his charisma, however, and the way he's able to motivate Russia into fighting that takes the crown here. This quote should say it all. "Our so-called leaders prostituted us to the West... destroyed our culture... our economies... our honor. Our blood has been spilled on our soil. My blood... on their hands. They are the invaders. All U.S. and British forces will leave Russia immediately... or suffer the consequences." Who was this?

Question 23

Who am I?

Quiztaker! Answer this question! Quiztaker! Do you remember this always yelling, always demanding sergeant from Modern Warfare 2? Quiztaker! Do you remember how invaluable he was not only in the Middle East but also to the Americans retaking Washington D.C. against the Russian threat? Quiztaker! Do you believe this to be one of Keith David's finest performances - and that's counting his two separate roles in the Saints Row series? Quiztaker! We've imitated this character enough, so can you please answer the question?

Question 24

Who am I?

While the Modern Warfare series has always had better character development and arcs with those in Task Force 141 - Soap MacTavish, John Price, etc - the American soldiers aren't bad characters at all; they just lack much character other than, as Foley would say, DO THIS! Codenamed 'Frost' and a member of Team Metal, this character participates in several key World War III battles, though is absent when Team Metal perishes in Modern Warfare 3's penultimate mission. What is Frost's real name?

Question 25

Who am I?

It's rare that a pilot, especially one who doesn't talk much, becomes a beloved fan-favorite. Then again, this IS Modern Warfare we're talking about and this Russian pilot, always there in the nick of time to save Price, Soap, and friends, is awesome. Debuting in the first game and one of the few survivors by the time Price kills Makarov, asking what we'd have done without this man is a fair question - and one no one wants to think about. Who is this?

Question 26

Who am I?

After the captain and second-in-command relationship that Price and Soap had in the Modern Warfare games, it was fair to guess that no other Call of Duty relationship - with the potential exception of Alex Mason and Frank Woods, though that was more them being together in the same unit rather than one having command - would come close. Frank Reyes and this Lebanese character, though, were spectacular in Infinite Warfare - and the writers didn't even force a romantic subplot! Not bad!

Question 27

Who am I?

Only I would follow up an entry about a dog with an entry about Idris Elba, right? When Modern Warfare 3 first released in 2011, the majority of players were probably in awe about shooting their way through the New York Stock Exchange. Others, like myself, were joyous that Idris Elba was by our side to help us plow through the Russians. A valuable member of Team Medal and one with quite a few quips, Elba did a hell of a job here. Who is this?

Question 28

Who am I?

We're in the home stretch now, so you'll definitely want to get this right if you're hovering close to the 50 percent mark. A member of the Four Horsemen alongside Makarov, Irman Zakahev, and his son, Viktor, this Saudi Arabian is responsible for the nuclear warhead detonated in the first Modern Warfare game. Though his screentime, like most of the other Horsemen not named Makarov, isn't long, the impact of such a decision is felt throughout the remainder of the series. You shouldn't have a problem getting this right.

Question 29

Who am I?

With a badass Michael K. Williams-like scar - that we never heard this Martian villain hum "Farmer in the Dell" was a major disappointment - was this villain a fine antagonist for Infinite Warfare? Was he Vladimir Makarov? No, but given some of the other big bads we've had since the Modern Warfare series ended, this villain worked fine. There have been too many 'intelligent' and conniving bad guys since Makarov - we needed someone that was purely out for chaos. What is his name?

Question 30

Who am I?

It is very, very rare that a character will debut in something fan-created and then go on to officially appear in another product. But, this happened with this Master Sergeant who leads Team Metal through World War III in battles from New York to Eastern Siberia without ever considering defeat in the harshest of situations. Normally seen with an ACR 6.8, this Georgia native took part in Operation Kingfish - the fan-created video that dropped two months before Modern Warfare's release in 2011 - alongside Task Force 141. Who is this?

Question 31

Who am I?

The numbers, Mason! What do they mean? Yes, this shaved, sunglasses-loving CIA agent is behind the infamous quote from Black Ops. A member of the 101st Airborne Division in the Korean War, this character is also a Georgetown graduate and is responsible for interrogating Mason twenty years before his death in Black Ops II. If you've made it this far, then this question should absolutely be easy. If you get this wrong, he's going to question you with those sunglasses of his.

Question 32

Who am I?

O'Shea Jackson has entered the building. A few years before his BIG3 league with Allen Iverson and other ex-NBA players came to fruition, Ice Cube voiced a Georgia-born Special Agent in Black Ops and a teammate of Alex Mason. Technically the right-hand man to Frank Woods, Cube's character - nicknamed Whiskey - doesn't make it to the 1980s like the other two do, meeting his end in Laos during a game of Russian Roulette...but by pipe, not pistol. Rough. What was Cube's character named?

Question 33

Who am I?

The main antagonist in Call of Duty: Ghosts, there's really not much to this character. I know it sounds like we're hating on Ghosts because it's one of those post-Modern Warfare/Black Ops II games, but it's just such a mediocre story that ends so abruptly. Anyways, this former United States Marine Corps captain and leader of the Ghosts is now a brainwashed member of the Federation that is trying to take down his old teammates. It's almost like Darth Vader in the Great Jedi Purge, more or less. What's his name?

Question 34

Who am I?

For some of you, this will be extremely easy given the hype this character - voiced and modeled after an extremely popular MMA fighter - received in the months leading up to Infinite Warfare's release. For others, especially those not in tune with the sports world, you'll have to think back to his short appearances in last year's game. Showing up early to beat the ever living hell out of you, we can only wish we saw more of him - and, even got to play as him. Who is this?

Question 35

Who am I?

Well, if you're living in the United States and get this one wrong, shame on you. Actually, if you're living anywhere in the world and get this wrong, then you really need to brush up on those history books. One of the most influential politicians in history and a beloved American president, this pop cultural icon appears in the original Black Ops game and is even playable online. Again, if you get this wrong, find a library and please, for everyone, start reading.
