In-game Missions


In response to the execution of President Al-Fulani, the United States Department of Defense sends in the Marine recon units, under General Shepherd's orders, to attack the OpFor led by Khaled Al-Asad.

The first response of the U.S. was the invasion of Makkah Coast for capturing the TV studio where Al-Asad diffuses the video of Al-Fulani's execution. They send many helicopters and multiple Marines to accomplish the mission. The Marines succeeds in reach the studio, but failed to capture Al-Asad.

Later, the Marines are sent to the city of Al-Qunfudhah where they must liberate the city under OpFor's domination. Also, some surviving Marines must be rescued by the group and the liberation of Al-Qunfudhah succeed. After these events, they received new orders in attacking the capital city where they located Al-Asad's position.

The assault of the capital city is a major event and ensure the succeed of the Marines. Many tanks and helicopters are being sent for the conquest of the city. Command believes that there is a possible nuclear threat in the city thanks to intel from the British SAS, this causes a small group of Marines to evacuated, while the others kept searching for Al-Asad. They then evacuate the city without him, but as they escape, the nuclear device is detonated, destroying all buildings, helicopters, Abrams tank battalions and remnant OpFor survivors.

The nuclear attack killed 30,000 Marines in total. The SAS were later sent to interrogate Al-Asad at his safehouse in Azerbaijan where he is then killed.

The surviving Force Recon Marines were sent to assist SAS and Loyalist forces in Russia. They assisted in finding Viktor Zakhaev and in preventing ICBMs from targeting the U.S. East Coast before they were killed by Zakhaev until his demise at the hands of John "Soap" MacTavish during their escape.

It is revealed that Imran Zakhaev was the main instigator of the attack and Vladimir Makarov was the man who triggered the nuclear explosion. This event is the main reason why General Shepherd would go on to orchestrate a war between the United States and Russia.
