For the similar helicopter, see CH-46 Sea Knight.

The "CH-47 Chinook" makes an appearance in Call of Duty: Black Ops as the main transport helicopter and a minor appearance during Call of Duty: Black Ops II's campaign and in Call of Duty: Heroes.

Call of Duty: Black Ops[]


The CH-47 makes three appearances in the campaign. In U.S.D.D. as the helicopter which transport Alex Mason to the Pentagon, in S.O.G. as a few of the helicopters taking off and flying in the beginning.


Like the MH-6 Little Bird helicopter in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, it drops SAM Turrets, Care Packages, Sentry Guns and Valkyrie Rockets. However, the helicopter is much slower and can be destroyed easily as a result. If destroyed, the crate will fall and land below where the helicopter was destroyed. As with other helicopter-based killstreaks in Black Ops, the CH-47's paint scheme will vary depending on whether it is operated by friendly or enemy forces. It will reward 300 XP upon destroying it, whether it was a care package, SAM Turret, Sentry Gun, or Valkyrie Rocket crate that it was carrying when it was shot down.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II[]

The CH-47 Chinook appears very briefly in a cinematic where it collects Frank Woods.

Call of Duty: Heroes[]

Part of a crashed Chinook can appear as debris in the player's base.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War[]

The CH-47 Chinook only appears in Multiplayer, where it's used to drop Care Packages onto the map.

  • Originally the CH-47 had see-through windows and even a partly visible crew as seen in the killstreak selection menu.
  • In Theater Mode, the Chinook is poorly detailed, and only has a rear loading ramp.
  • Notice in the video below that a part of the explosion features a tail rotor, which a Chinook does not have.
  • Chinooks are the only helicopters that can come when other helicopters are present.
  • After dropping a reward crate, it can move fast enough to avoid a locked-on rocket.
  • Shooting at enemy Chinooks is a great way to unlock Hardened Pro, as the helicopters are a large target and are stationary when dropping the crate.
  • The Chinook reuses the CH-46 Sea Knight model from the Modern Warfare series.
  • In the mission SOG there are green Sea Knights that bear the fin flash ET and VMM-262 a Marine Corps helicopter squadron that saw service in Vietnam.
