Best Characters Out of All Call of Duty Games
The Top TenXW
Soap was of course the best character in Modern Warfare Series. From the starting in Modern Warfare 1 Price says "What the hell kinda name is soap". Sure he regrets saying that later. He was with Price's group right from the start till the death of Imran Jakhaev by his hands whom Price and McMillan tried to snipe but couldn't kill 15 years ago! He then went for Operation King fish with Price, Ghost and Sandman where Price was taken captive but they thought he was dead. Here though Ghost played a vital role still I don't understand, It isn't enough for people to like Ghost and move him to number 1. After that we see him in Modern Warfare 2 as the acting commander and captain of the Task Force in Cliffhanger. Whenever I see an enemy by playing as roach and turn towards him he snipes out the bastard saying "He's mine" and that too within a second or two.I really like that part too where they made an inhuman jump from one platform of Ice to another one at the start of ...more
He was the best character ever made not in Call of Duty, but in the games history ever! We don't know a lot about him, but we can love him, because we start the Modern Warfare with him, and he is back in MW2 as an NPC and a playable character too. He was a hero, he killed every bad character. Soap should have killed Makarov too, to make him a real legend, but the game creators have killed him, and with him they have killed one of the best game sequels, the Modern Warfare too. He was the most likeable character, he had more to do, and his death was a tragedy and really painful. It shows a message: "It doesn' t matter you liked him, we killed him to end it right here, right now. " He wouldn't die in a table, and Makarov wouldn't get that prize to have a good feeling about his death. It would be nicer, if Soap could kill him and then Makarov should realize, that he can't get everything, what he wants. Makarov got Soap's death, and Soap got what? He killed Zakhaev and Shepherd, ...more
Captain MacTavish is awesome! He saves Roach a bunch of times, he kills General Shepherd and Imran Zakhaev, and he does all the work in combat!
Thank you people underrate soap because he died. Well he was a badass and did the most workV73 Comments
Of all the characters in the games, Ghost is the only one that I felt horrible when he died, I actually had emotion about him and wanted to kick Shepard ass for it
The most badass I can think of. I didn't know him long, but the mask, glasses, attitude, intelligence, and heroics made me pissed when he died.
The most epic Call of Duty guy in history shepard should go to hell for killing him - decorulez97
I what to kill shepherd for killing ghostV116 Comments
Ok he is like 50 years old with arthritis and he still whoops ass and he never dies and he never will.
Price has been around since the first game, he has an awesome voice, is really tough without trying to be, and HE HAS A BEARD!
he should be one or two. Hes old and a beast still. I he would die at the end mw2 though.
I don't get it the 1 and 2 all died at least put a survivor like captain price on number 1.V52 Comments
By the way he is not dead he survived. You can find evidence on YouTube
Coolest character ever! I really hope he somehow comes back. The missions with him were my favorite.
I feel bad for him, he gets himself blown up by an idiot! He's awesome and no one can beat him!
'Frank Woods kicks assV44 Comments
Alex Mason is actually such an interesting character. He is a mentally unstable character, who can hear numbers! At the same time he is one good looking, badass dude. He should be top
The most interesting character in the franchise and lives through so much danger.
I like that in black ops, you get to c the primary character, and know what his voice sounds like (a boss) betrayed, forgoten, abandoned. All brothers.
In bo2 you can save Alex Mason from when Frank Woods shoots him instead of shooting him in the head you need to shoot him in his knees twice this is just one step of many steps to save Alex MasonV17 Comments
he was at the battle of stalingrad, the recapturing of russia and most eastern europe, Seelow Heights and the Battle of Berlin as well as Project Nova and the escape from Vorkuta were he sadly dies but really who else has that under there belt oh and his cool signature machete
Epic and badass, not only in WaW but in black ops too.
And he died like a hero, letting mason get on the train first leaving himself to die
Good character, hardcore knows a lot about warfare, also in Black Ops. - roblist
This man always know how to sacrificeV26 Comments
In all honesty, I believe the roach should be one of the top modern warfare characters, if not the best. He was took part in many of the significant missions while he still served Task force 141, such as the Gulag, cliff hanger, take down, etc. Even though we don't know much about Roach as a person and don't get to hear him speak let alone see his face, a bond between the player and character is formed. Let's face it, I can't name any other character in the modern warfare series whose missions had epic phases, like : Escaping from a Russian military force that is chasing you down a mountain slope, fleeing from hundreds of Militia rebels in a slum, knowing that your brothers in arms may desert you if you don't make it in time, rescuing a true icon in the modern warfare series (captain price), breaching rooms (come on, we all loved that little matrix moment when you would aim the barrel of your gun through the debris of the wall, taking out all hostile targets in the room) and dodging ...more
Roach is obviously the best Call of Duty character, even though you can't see him you form a sort of bond with him. So when he died I was more sadder for him than anyone else. And he was in all major task force 141 missions like cliffhanger and takedown and stuff and him and mactavish took down an entire Russian base in cliff hanger ROACH for the win
Modern Warfare 2 was the first Call of Duty game I played and Roach is the character that stands out the most in my mind. The fact that characters can die in this game was broken out early when Joseph Allen died so when I was playing Roach, all his narrow escapes actually kept my heart pumping thinking he might not make it. Then comes the ending where you make it alive one last time, then get betrayed, and killed. Being a faceless/voiceless main character, you don't get to know much about Roach in other areas but playing him, you find he's a great soldier who can rely on and support his team. He would of survived his last mission but part of his team betrayed him so yea.
Too silent for Call of Duty, if he can talk, could be much betterV14 Comments
Killed by Zakhaev
Why can't Zakhaev kill someone else.
"your fruit killing skills are remarkable mate"... Loved him from the start
I think Gaz is the most amaizing character because he is ruthless and defensive and is also brave and is even better than captain price in all of the modern warfares he is the greatest character.
My favorite gaz is handsome some day I would be like himV18 Comments
He is just like price and soap COMBINED!
Even if soap died for yuri,
he didn't actually mean to kill soap.
he is also a badass too!
he took the risk to save price!
now that's a he! #uva badass
Awesome character! Saves Captain Price's life and lives so much danger.
A pretty good Russian character... Yuri is a total warhead!
A sacrifice for another to live good job YuriV11 Comments
Griggs is a complete badass, he can take woods any day and should be right on top of that list. He would kick your ass for not voting for him!
Griggs is one of those big black badasses and is awesome and is very underrated.
I didn't really care for Griggs until the final scene when he risks his life Soap. The only reason Price had the time to slide Soap the gun was because Griggs gave him the time. - bilbro29
Griggs was a vibrant, awesome character who fought for both the Marines and the SAS. Even though he died, the last thing we hear from him is his awesome rap song in the credits.V16 Comments
Definitely the best villain in the entire Call of Duty franchise and certainly one of its best characters too.
Such a bad guy, but awesome bad guy!
He is the best Call of Duty villain I have ever seen. Hope we get to see his life in Spetsnaz sometime. And he is 1# in killing Americans.
Felt Like he should of been a bit higherV9 Comments
Brave, Loyal and Awesome is what describes this legend.
You know how to say owned in Russian? Owned!
He's also in blackops 1 and 2 zombies... that's when nikolai is funniest - Hunter17pV3 Comments
Great leader, cares about his men and won't back down to his enemies, and has many followers
He makes WaW such an awesome game, he deserves at least a place in the top 10 go Rodebuck
Miller burn the grass! - sergent Roebuck blowtorch and corkscrewV1 Comment
He saved the world from total war.He should be in the top ten.
Why isn't this guy number one? He's an amazing character. He's a hero, and he's such a great guy. I love him to death.
Awesome character and so professional at his job
Should be most definitely in top 10. One of if not the most talented of the charactersV7 Comments
This Price isn't the same as Captain John Price in Modern Warfare. Pretty much every Call of Duty up till 3 had a captain price.
Captain Price was the best character in the Call of Duty franchise.
This guy has been the leader in almost all modern warfares this guy had gone from a lutendent on all chilled up to the best leader in Call of Duty history
Victor reznov are one of the most memorable characters of all time! He is a bad ass soviet soldier that he will do anything to get his country back from him! Also if you have a fight with this guy. You will lose your face in a tragic FIST accident!
His my favorite character he surive all missions
The stereotypical badass Russian that has to say cambrad at least once on each sentence!
Only 17 I'm disappointedV4 Comments
Didn't say a word but he does more work than sandman grinch and truck combined
By far one of the more talented and skilled members of the whole franchise.
This guy should definitely be on the list for being an awesome magician. He pulled off one of the best disappearing acts at the end of MW3!
The only surviving member of his squad.V4 Comments
He says awesome tag lines and best of all he's Scottish and has an epic accent!
I like how he say : "Good night ya bastard! "
Say he is the best sniper killer
Just an amazing guysV5 Comments
He just wins. Team Metal Leader and Master Sergeant. People don't push him around.
Sandman is a don, he knows exactly what to do and he deserves to be up there in the top 20.
Such a cool character and is my second favorite behind Reznov
Sandman is the leader of the delta force.V5 Comments
Him and foley stay all though the ranger campaign is mw2
That's my opinion, he should not be left out, he awesome
Put him on the list he knows how to hit a target. And he does not get killed. He can kill anyone anywhere
Cpl. Dunn represent
He has night vision with his helmet, I really think he should have been in the top ten.
Great fighter him Sgt Foley and rameriez all get overrun by the Russians unluckyV3 Comments
