Saddest Deaths In Call of Duty

The only reason I didn't put Ghost or Woods in here is because they aren't dead.

The Top Ten

1 Soap

Soap was my favourite character in Call of Duty. I was thinking I am going to save his life twice but all of a sudden he died.
His death was 2nd most sad moment for me
Most saddest was when roach dies along side of ghost they werent my favourite but their death was most tragic for me

This just happend to me I've played the game
This guy killed zaciev and avenged ghost by killing Shepard In a unique way, a knife to the eye.
This man saved the world a lot do times, and what does trearch do? Kill him in a bad way.
He should have died in a better way if he had to die

Yours truly, will

Ps if ghost is so badass did he save the world?

We rescue him for a few chapters, we worry about him, and then he dies. Thanks for those who made this game, after his death I felt nothing good in MW 3. We want back him.

The thing that was really heroic about before his death was when he wanted price to patch him up and put him back in the fight

2 Ghost

Shepard's betrayal was 100% unpredictable, and Ghost was bad ASS. Wish I Could've died alone, and not Ghost. People say Soap was the saddest, and I respect that, but I think Ghost barely made it out as the winner of saddest death.

Ghost had the saddest death he was my favorite but then when you think it's over bam shepherd just betrays you and then they through soap down right next to you then and music comes then the light fades poor ghost.

Ghost didn't deserve to die by the hands of Shepherd, he should of died during 'Dust to Dust' (if he was alive) saving Price from being executed by Makarov instead of Yuri.

I was so shocked when he died and I just didn't see it coming. ghosts shall live forever in our hearts. rip

3 Reznov

Viktor Reznov, made quite an appearance in Call of Duty WAW
My favourite character in the whole series but he died a bad death, shot trying to escape from prison. Sad story!

I know everyone loves the MW series but the storyline behind Reznov and how deep they go into his history and relationship with Petrenko and then Mason is too good to not be higher on this list.

In black ops, when the numbers are decoded, it says reznov is still alive...

He died in Vorkuta. My favorite Black Ops level! My favorite level ruined bu him dying!

4 Gaz

People thinks that Gaz is Ghost but I don't think so. Anyway, Gaz was awesome. Why is everybody dying? Yuri, Soap, Sandman, Reznov... If Price or Mason or Woods dies I will be dissapointed and mayby stop buying these games.

Should be lower. He got shot in the head. It lasted about 1.5 seconds. Hudson should be here, he got his legs shot off and he was in Blops 1 along with 2

Will why in the last level of Call of Duty 4.

I loved gas he was awesome and cool

5 Yuri

Captain price should've sacrificed himself!

Yuri was awesome. I wish he was still alive.

Yuri should not have went out like that

Why did Yuri but not price

6 Alex Mason

When I saw Mason die, I was so sad because Black Ops 1 was the first Call of Duty I ever played. I know you can save him, but when I first played the mission and saw that one guy smirking, and then you run up to see Mason lifeless. It brings chills.

He only dies if you choose a certain path, which, by the way, should be obvious enough to avoid. However, David's face when he sees him is true enough to shed one man-tear.

Alex's death would be sad but I didn't kill him so that means he never died. That means this wasn't sad for me since I never experienced that

I killed him and then found out you can save him. I cried so hard.

7 Sandman

He gave his life for price, yuri, and the president. I just played mw3

Sandman was a bad ass


8 Vasquez
9 Roach

Why isn't Roach up in the top ten?! Ghost is higher and he was a pure beast don't get me wrong but you actually played as roach for the majority of MW2. He pretty much does all of the action packed missions and all the cool stunts in this game. It also is extremely sad because he was already wounded and he and ghost were the only men left then BANG they get shot out of nowhere and betrayed and actually experienced that as Roach!

Roach is and was my favourite Call of Duty character. Even though most people think that Ghost was better, Roach is always my favourite. He was trusted by his team (Task Force 141) and he was their family as well as they were his. I basically died when Roach (and Ghost) died from betrayal of all things.

Why is this man bit as high as Ghost, they both died at the same damn time and both had a free cremation

Poor roach and ghost

10 Cormack

It was he was almost at the base then he died the whole rest of the game I was like for cormack!

So horrible his death, bleeding in the back of the truck at the end of the mission

Oh. My. God. What did Cormack have to die He dies in pain sadly

Why did he die

The Contenders

11 Ethan

Ethan was so innocent and had a genuine robot soul. His death was the first time I felt empty inside since Ghost's death. Always a hero.

The most badass robot of them all died a honorable death.

I cried a lot his deth was the saddest thing in my life

Why I cried so hard when he died

12 Brooklyn

In Call of Duty The Big Red One you really bonded with everyone in your squad. You fight with all of them throughout the entire European Theatre and you really feel like they have your back. When they talk to you they aren't spouting any plot twist or giving military orders, or screaming and shouting as if they're hardcore Rambo soldiers. They are just just regular guys who volunteered (I think) just like your character. When one of them dies, you feel like you've lost a friend. But the hardest blow is when the wisecracking Brooklyn dies from mortar fire on last mission near the end of the game. There isn't any dramatic music or any music. You just stand there seeing him struggling trying to avoid the shells being fired at him until one sends him flying in the air.

I don't much care for any of the new characters that seemed to fill the top ten with the exception of a couple, Brooklyn definitely should've made it closer than he did, this was the only death that made me want to literally cry.

The way Brooklyn was there for you in the beginning of the game, and the fact that you bond with all the characters in your squad, hurts when one dies. The other fact about Brooklyn's death that sucks is that it's on the last level of the game. He was so close to getting home and he gets mortared to death... RIP my friend.

My favorite Call of Duty 2big red 1 was the first Call of Duty I ever played and I was6

First Call of Duty I ever played, Brooklyn really caught my heart when he died.
Along with Denley. :(

13 Jason Hudson

When he put on those glasses in number, I pissed myself

I loved him

14 Dimitri Petrenko

Remember Heart of the Reich? This guy (so basically, us) did some badass stuff in Call of Duty WaW, and so when I saw him in the BO 1 mission, my heart jumped! And then he dies one of the worst deaths in Call of Duty history. I agree with Reznov, he should have died back in Berlin.

I will admit. He wasn't one of my most favorite characters (He was decent) but his death was heartbreaking. He did so much in World War II and fought honorably. Looking at his face as he died, pounding on the windows in deep pain. His death hit me like a bullet. Fast and hard.

Dimitri Petrenko gave his life to ensure the USSR was always victorious but instead he died for nothing because of the traitorous acts committed on him and his comrades RIP comrade Dimitri Petrenko RIP hero of Stalingrad

He dies by dragovich in bo1 by gas. Reznov says he died like nothing. an animal. He also said. He should of died worthy back in Berlin. RIP. Dimitri Petrenko

15 Griggs

Should be way higher, he risk his life for Soap and died, he could of been the captain in MW2 if he didn't come out and start shooting, he could of stayed in cover and act dead

Got shot in the head on the final level of CoD4.

Died Rescuing us (Soap). Sad

Griggs and gaz RUP

16 Riley

Guys! Its Simon Riley aka "GHOST". I wonder still why he has two spots in this list...

We've had soap, yuri, gaz but now a dog in Call of Duty ghosts! Just stupid now

The dog doesn't die dumbass.

It's a dog, that's why.!

17 Harper

In the Mission 8 in BO2 you can choose to kill harper I did so and I almost cried Harper's death is very sad I of course rewinded the story and sVed him

I felt bad about killing him

Sad for mason


18 Mike Dixon

Dixon was a good guy

Why did Dixon die but not Guzzo


19 Captain Price 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.
20 Frank Woods

He saves mason by jumping though the window with the bad guy and explodes himself to death with the bad guy so sad

Really? He survived as you can see in black ops 2

I loved him r.i.p he guided me through the game died by a explosion

21 Will Irons

Jack Mitchell's best friend

"see you on the another side

It's so sad play it your self

Will was cool

22 Sergeant Paul Jackson

I felt bad when I saw Jackson died, I kind of wanted him to live and maybe fight along side soap and the loyalists, and make a final stand against Zakhaev

23 Bloomfield

The way he died shocked me, just because he was a fun character, and it was in the final mission in the game. He was one of my favorite characters in the game.

He was my favorite character in the whole series!

24 Hendricks

I hated shooting him

25 Turner

The only reasons I liked this guy is because he would give you loads of ammo

Sacrificed his life to get his men out

I loved turner we was the best

Turner was one of the best people who helped you throughout WWII,but when his time came,it was kinda tear-breaking.
