Best Characters Out of All Call of Duty Games

The Top Ten

1 Captain MacTavish - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

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

BIGGEST FACT
Call of Duty Series is Successful only because of Modern Warfare Series
&
Modern Warfare Series is Successful only because of Captain Soap Mactavish

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!

2 Ghost - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

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

He is so awesome. He also a complete savage in the new MW. He is in my favorite game ever! MW2 and the new MW. Best video game character ever. Right up there with Master Chief and Solid Snake.

3 Captain Price - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 & 2 Captain John Price is a main fictional character in the Call of Duty series, being one of three characters to be featured in all of the games in the Modern Warfare series, the others being Captain John "Soap" MacTavish and Nikolai.

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 was in the first call of duty modern warfare game and he cares about his teammates and gets the job done

From the first game he was a great teammate and gets the job done and takes care of his friends.

4 Frank Woods - Call of Duty: Black Ops

By the way he is not dead he survived. You can find evidence on YouTube

Sacrifice, guns, war hungry and a cool ass bandana what's not to like

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!

5 Sergeant Reznov - Call of Duty World at War

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.

He is the most heroic, selfless character ever in all Call of Duty games. He dies, but the way he dies in Black Ops is a good way to die. He died so he can save Mason and Mason kills Kravchenko, Steiner, and Dragovich that way he can stop the world from being exposed to Nova 6. Plus he is wise, and he can kick A.

6 Alex Mason - Call of Duty: Black Ops

Woods is the best character hands down, there was no one so badass and immortal like him, he would take so many people out and is the epitome of American Badass.

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.

7 Gary "Roach" Sanderson - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

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.

I feel like everybody feels sorry for Ghost just because he had a skull mask. Actually I was more sadder for his death. He's my favorite playable character of in the whole Call of Duty series and by the way... He's badass

8 Yuri Petrenko - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

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!

He is awesome he saved price like saving price is awesome price is awesome so saving price is even more awesome

9 Gaz - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Gaz is a character, very intelligent and one of the best ones

Anyone who doesn't love Gaz is probably too young to have played Cod4. Had he not been killed off in Cod4 and had appeared in the following games he would probably be top of this list

gaz is the bossest character ever I love him

Number 1 ahead of woods and ghost fantastic character

10 Nikolai - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 1 & 2

Brilliant character with a dark sense of humour and a lot of courage and desires to remove taint from his country

Brave, Loyal and Awesome is what describes this legend.

A genius! He's very funny!

You know how to say owned in Russian? Owned!

The Contenders

11 Cpt. Price - Call of Duty 2

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.

Never saw any evidence saying it isn't the same captain price.

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

12 Makorav - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

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.

Ok I'll say this right now the reason I really love this character is because he's so ruthless and basically starts world war 3 by himself. I know people don't like him cause he killed so many characters but that's why I like him he's the best villain and is amazing should at least be 3

13 Staff Sergeant Griggs - Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

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.

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.

14 Captain Victor Reznov - Call of Duty: Black Ops

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!

The stereotypical badass Russian that has to say cambrad at least once on each sentence!

His my favorite character he surive all missions

Only 17 I'm disappointed

15 David Mason - Call of Duty: Black Ops II

Dude! This guy is just about as kind as you can get in a war game. Yeah yeah, sounds weird. But hear me out. If you chose to shoot Harper while you were playing as Farid, David doesn't freak out. He just calms down Farid and says he had no choice, and let me remind you that Harper was Alex's best friend. That takes some serious gut. Bless this guy.

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

16 Sandman - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3

No even joking, this guy risked his life with his badass squad to save the president of russia, he built the foundation for victory.

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.

Sandman was one of my favourite character in Call of Duty series

17 Captain MacMillan - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

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! "

Just an amazing guys

Best sniper, best stealth soldier, has the best accent et cetera.

18 Derrick Frost - Call of Duty: Modern Warefare 3

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.

The only surviving member of his squad.

He doesn't even speak

19 Sergeant Roebuck - Call of Duty: World at War

Literally was Captain Price's Dad as a wee lad. The best character there ever will be insanely underrated. 1. Macmillan 2. Ghost 3. Soap

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

One of the best Sergeants in the series

20 Lev Kravchenko - Call of Duty: Black Ops

He did nothing but kill random people. Should he really be this high on the list?

He is really cool

21 Sgt. Marcus Burns

This guy is very good he never died in Call of Duty was still alive after the train crash and did everything he needed to do

Never got to know him much. Shouldn't be so high on the list.

22 John F. Kennedy - Call of Duty: Black Ops

Best zombies character of all time

It's our president he should be higher

Why

From BO ZOMBIES?

23 Jason Hudson - Call of Duty: Black Ops

Come on people! He showed the true meaning of friendship. He made woods kill Mason to save Mason's son David, not his life. Later on When Menendaz prompts to kill all them three, he sacrifices himself so David can see another day. He didn't did it for woods. Woods was crippled, injured and he had no one to cry for him. If Woods gave himself up instead of Hudson then I am sure the events of 2025 would have never happened. Hudson would have killed Menendaz for his friends and for he world

You do realize there talking about him from Black ops 1 not the second one - Ethan-metal1

Coolest badass ever! Especially his shades, too bad he got killed

Mr Shades. A complete boss, the stereotypical hard as nails fed. Epic in the Kowloon mission. Why Ian' t Jennifer up the list?

Stone cold professional, that's all there is to it. Black ops 2 and his death didn't do him justice.

24 Sgt. Foley - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

This guy is awesome. He really does know how to take out a target

He is an awesome leader.

Ooh Rah

Fkn annoying, his missons aren't as fun.

25 Corporal Dunn - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

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

Corporal Dunn stuck with the rangers till the end! He gets my vote any day of the week. He made sure his squad got home to their families. Move him up!

He has night vision with his helmet, I really think he should have been in the top ten.

Dunn and Foley always stick together and wreck bad guys.
