Alejandro Rojas, alias "Alex the Red", was an arms dealer in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He lived in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, and was protected by the local militia. He was also a contact and armorer of Vladimir Makarov, which is the reason he attracted the attention of Task Force 141.
History[edit | edit source]
According to information in the cutscene before "Takedown", Rojas began his career as a low level munitions clerk for the KGB, Soviet Intelligence, but quickly worked his way up the career ladder. He oversaw overseas connections with the Far East and South American trades, a buffer between government and mercenaries trading in all levels of weaponry.
Rojas then went freelance in 1997, where he went off the grid for many years, and was thought to be involved with many terrorist organizations, including Vladimir Makarov's Inner Circle. He is eventually pursued and captured by Task Force 141 when Captain John "Soap" MacTavish tackles him out a window to pin him on a car below, and interrogated for information on Makarov. The Task Force leaves him behind for dead, with MacTavish saying that "The streets will take care of him".

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the beginning of the mission "The Hornet's Nest" before moving uphill, the player can see Rojas tied up to a steel fenced window with electrical plugs attached to him, showing that he was tortured, though he is still alive and the player can kill him without being penalized.
- He is the multiplayer announcer for Brazilian Militia.
- A photograph seen in the cutscene of "Eye of the Storm" reveals that Rojas attended councils with Viktor "Volk" Khristenko and Vladimir Makarov in the Hotel Lustig in Prague prior to the events of "Takedown".
- Alejandro Rojas, along with his assistant, Raptor, and Nikolai, are not featured in the "Museum".
- It was possible there was an intended torture scene with the player torturing Rojas, as there is a power drill on a table next to him and located in the game files (found on PC) is the remnants of a cut weapon called "power drill".
- According to Soap's Journal, Rojas is affiliated with a shipping company called Fregata Industries; the same company featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3.
- In Soap's Journal, his name is misspelled as Alexander.
- In the cutscene to Return To Sender, Rojas' picture is shown with a big red X through it, which hints that he was killed in action, as red X's are shown on other deceased characters. However, this could also just mean he's no longer a threat or a target of Task Force 141.
- Whilst Rojas is fleeing, he will constantly drop money in the form of notes.
