Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 will be the next entry to the franchise. The news came via the official Infinity Ward Twitter account on 28th April, as they posted a picture of the logo. The original version of MW2 had sold over 25 million copies, which was a great success at the time for a franchise that released yearly titles.
As we get ready for CoD Modern Warfare 2 2022, we compiled a list of the most memorable campaign moments. We are sure that the campaign will still hit as hard as it did all the way back in 2009. This list has many moments that have sparked international debates and others that bring out the best in players.
Our Top Call of Duty is Modern Warfare 2 Moments
No Russian (THAT Airport Level)
Let us start with the mission which sparked controversy worldwide and is undoubtedly the most exciting in the franchise. The plot revolves around a terrorist attack planned for Zakhaev Airport in Russia. Undercover CIA Agent Joseph Allen is taken over by the player, who participates in the attack to gain the trust of extremist terrorist Vladimir Makarov. The player can choose to not take part in the massacre if they wish.
Although it is regarded as one of the most memorable moments in Modern Warfare’s history, it was also criticized by outside news outlets. It was due to the location of the mission at an airport and the massive massacre that follows, it would be a combination that drove campaigns for censorship in games. Even with the Remaster of MW2 campaign, Vice would comment on the mission stating “Modern Warfare 2 encourages us to be emotionally masochistic”.
Regardless of the opinions of news outlets on the mission, it is certain that it was the moment that caught the attention of players and news outlets, as well as almost the entire gaming world. This puts “No Russian” at the top of our list.
Loose Ends (Betrayal)
As you begin Loose Ends you will understand that the goal is to infiltrate Makarov’s safehouse, extract data, and then go for an exfil. You play as Gary “Roach” Sanderson accompanying Simon “Ghost” Riley, members of Task Force 141. After you have not found Makarov but were able to extract useful information from computers you make your way to the Little Bird Gunship, where you will meet General Shepherd.
After handing over SDM, the players witnessed one of the greatest betrayals in videogame history. Shepherd says “Good.” Before shooting Roach and Ghost, Shepherd commented “Good. Ghost can hear Price warning them about his treachery over Ghost’s radio. It is too late. This sets up the final missions perfectly. You will find it difficult to find a player who has not been affected by the events that unfolded. Major franchise characters are being destroyed by allies.
Endgame (Showdown With Shepherd)
Now for one of the most intense showdowns ever seen in MW history. As Captain MacTavish supports Captain Price in his quest to eliminate General Shepherd, the player assumes control. You will finally be able to take down the madman after a compelling campaign with satisfying and soul-destroying moments. There are many reasons to kill Shepherd. We doubt that there are any more satisfying climaxes.
The mission may require little input from the players, but you can hear Shepherd’s brief speech which shows his pain. He comments “Five years ago, I lost 30,000 men in the blink of an eye. The world f sat and watched. Tomorrow, there will not be a shortage of volunteers or patriots. Aft
