Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, the Activision and Infinity Ward shooter tipped to become one of the best FPS games of 2022, has inspired players on CoD Reddit to track down every war crime committed by Ghost, Soap, Price and team throughout the Modern Warfare 2 campaign.

Modern Warfare 2’s campaign rewards include weapon skins, nameplates, and XP tokens. But Task Force 141 and Shadow Company could also end up with a spell in jail, at least according to Call of Duty Reddit, which has summed up every illegal act our ostensible heroes commit in the Modern Warfare 2 mission list.

“I exclude crimes and war crimes that cannot be widely confirmed, i.e. things that may have been approved or negotiated off-screen by the parties involved and their respective agencies and governments,” explains Modern Warfare 2 fan u/Hammer_of_Discipline , which then provides a comprehensive list of every illegal act committed by player characters during the new CoD campaign.

Shadow Company, the private military contractors led by Philip Graves, are allegedly responsible for unlawful detention, conspiracy to commit fraud, destruction of property, bribery, theft and extortion, among others. The combined Task Force 141 and Mexican special forces team, led by Ghost, Price and newcomer Alejandro Vargas, are suspected of committing reckless threats, burglaries and illegal military operations. Between the teams, who take turns controlling or assisting players, 22 war crimes are committed during the MW 2 campaign.

And that rules out the crimes of supporting characters, including General Shepherd and quasi-antagonist Hassan. In all, Hammer_of_Discipline notes 38 different types of war crimes committed during the Modern Warfare 2 campaign, but also notes that in some cases – the reckless threat of Task Force 141, for example – there are “multiple counts”.
