"Rorke. It was Rorke. He's targeting...look...the wall... "
— Ajax's last words to Merrick in "Struck Down".

Sergeant Alex V. Johnson (codenamed Ajax) was a special forces soldier and Ghosts member and former United States Marine that appears in the Call of Duty: Ghosts missions Struck Down and Legends Never Die.


Alex Johnson joined the United States Marine Corps and served in the Force Recon alongside Keegan forming a strong bond, before Ghosts birth. Both he and Keegan would later joined Ghosts together under command of Captain Rorke, Lieutenant Walker and Sergeant Merrick. They, or the Marine Corps, gave him the nickname "Ajax".

Operation: Return to Sender[]

"What the hell is it targeting?"
— Ajax to the squad about the missile truck.

Ajax was part of Operation: Return to Sender, to kill General Almagro. At the time he was the least experienced and youngest of the team. During the Caracas dam's burst and subsequent flooding of the city, Rorke, Walker, Merrick, and Ajax managed to find and kill Almagro. Ajax managed to escape along with the remaining Ghosts after Rorke's fall.

Capture by the Federation[]

"Rorke {...} You won't get anything from me."
— Ajax to Rorke in "No Mans Land".

Ajax was captured by Gabriel T. Rorke shortly before the mission No Man's Land. Logan, Hesh, and Riley witness Rorke taunting Ajax by "shooting" him with an unloaded P226. Rorke then orders his men to take Ajax and move everything to 'Firebase Charlie'.


After being brought to 'Firebase Charlie' (a baseball stadium featured in the mission Struck Down), Ajax is seen being beaten and then knocked out by the Federation. After intimidating his torturers by showing them his middle finger, a soldier knocks the back of his head with an SC-2010 before being moved to a new location to be tortured by Rorke, during which he divulges the location of the Ghosts' Las Vegas safehouse. When the player finally reaches Ajax a Federation soldier stabs him in the stomach with a knife, they find him mortally wounded as Keegan holds him in his dying moments. Ajax tells the rest of the Ghosts of Rorke's kill list. Ajax then bleeds out and dies.

Ajax is mentioned in The Hunted when Elias interrogates Rorke, with the latter mocking him by stating "if he was still with us".

  • In a Rorke file, the player can hear Rorke trying to get information from Ajax.
  • His mask, a.k.a. "Ghost Mask," is featured in Multiplayer, unlocked by purchasing the Season Pass and obtaining the Team Leader Pack.
  • During Legends Never Die, during the sequence on the helicopter, Ajax can be heard yelling "Hold on!." This is a goof as Ajax was ordered to protect the rear and was not on board the helicopter.
