Trivia Edit

Insertion Edit

  • The player can run up to the BTR and not be spotted.
  • After running from the BTRs and eliminating the search team, if the player goes right instead of following Price, there is a shortcut which will let them avoid all enemies leading up to the large group.
  • Just as Cpt. Price turns around after running from the BTRs, the player can run backwards and not be fired upon by them, and explore farther up the road that leads to a dead end.[citation needed]
  • If the player kills the first patrol, then triggers the convoy to appear before running all the way back to the starting position, the soldiers will leave their jeeps before inspecting the dead bodies with extreme suspicion. If the player is not far enough, they will slowly search the area until they find the player; however, if they are far enough, the soldiers will go idle after a prolonged period of time.
  • If the player runs down the road (where the first patrol is coming from), they will get a mission failure stating that they have abandoned the mission.
  • If the player alerts the second to last or final patrol, enemies will spawn from behind the player, even if the player killed every enemy behind them. When this happens, two dogs and several soldiers spawn from behind, however the dogs will target the player instead of Price.
  • Price rotates between the four enemy alert and after-battle quotes; upon alerting and finishing the fifth enemy patrol, Price will act as if it was the first patrol alerted (the same also applies to the large sixth patrol, where Price uses his second quotes instead).
  • As Roach and Captain Price are crossing the bridge leading up to them being spotted by the BTR a street sign to the left of the beginning of the bridge gives a reference to America's Army 3, as it shows the national symbol of Czervania (a lion with three stars in front of it), the antagonists of the game. The same sign also has a misprinted Russian flag, with the colors arranged white, red and blue from top to bottom.
  • If the player does not take out the "large patrol" but instead slips past them and then proceeds to the next area without killing the group of dog patrol, Price will take out the group of "large patrol" himself, but without shooting the dog, yet the dog is not alerted. If the player then goes to the ridge directly, Price will just walk in front of enemies and not alert them.

Outer Perimeter Edit

  • The mobile SAMs can be destroyed with the Predator before it is taken down - players must quickly use the Predator before going down the hill, as soon as it's available, and launch the missile immediately, as the SAM site will fire on it if the player allows the dialogue to run for too long.
    • If the player does, the dialog for the Predator drone being shot down may continue, even though it's still flying overhead.
    • In such a scenario, after Price reports to Soap that he linked up with Ghost, it is possible to take down targets in the submarine base with the original Predator while still remaining in the village. The first missile fired will activate the alert and start the timer (there's no timer for the mission on the Recruit difficulty level, though), but if the player falls back further into the village, Task Force 141 members will stay with him, already-spawned Russian troops will remain in their spots, and enemy reinforcements won't appear until the player reaches the base. 
  • Several weapons can be found after dropping down from the hill; the player can find an M240. It has a Heartbeat Sensor and a Red Dot Sight, but it just says on the pickup text 'M240 Heartbeat'.
  • If the allied Task Force 141 members die during the fight, they will not respawn again until all the enemies are taken out.

Inside The Base Edit

  • If the player fires Predator Missiles at their allies, Soap will continue with his dialogue as if the player killed enemies.
    • In fact, Soap keeps confirming kills even if the player doesn't do any damage with a Predator missile.
  • It is possible for a Predator missile to go out of the map if the player aims far towards water, beneath the rocks. It will go through the water as if it wasn't there and fly underground for a bit before disappering with no explosion sound. Soap will still confirm a hit on target.
  • It is possible to toss a grenade through the frozen water. It will go underneath the surface and explode a couple of meters below, as if there was no water at all.

Rooftop Holdout Edit

  • A second submarine can be seen in the distance from atop the rooftop and from the village.
  • It is possible for the player to survive being on the submarine when the missile fires, but they must be standing at the very front of the submarine.
  • There is a unique keyboard on the console inside the submarine with English and Russian letters mixed into a very strange arrangement.
  • Only one of the submarine's silos actually contains a missile.
  • It is not possible to board the submarine with Price because of death barriers.
    • Although it is not possible to board the submarine without dying, a player can see the interior of the sub control room briefly before the game loads the last check point.
  • None of the ladders on the submarine can be climbed by the player — most notably the one leading to the inside of the control room. Price doesn't use it, either, and jumps down instead. If the player tries to repeat such a move, they will be killed because of the height of the fall, but they will be able to see blurred Price standing idle in the control room before the game reloads to the last checkpoint. 
  • The first two Russian reinforcement trucks drive directly through a closed iron gate without smashing it. If the first one is destroyed by the player from the ground with an RPG, the second one behind will drive into the wreck, pushing it to the side.
  • This is one of the few missions in the game where the player is allowed to touch a water body. However, Roach dies directly on contact.

Miscellaneous Edit

  • On missions before this one, Soap's name appears as "Captain MacTavish" in the subtitles. For this mission he is labeled "Soap".
Pripyat sign in Petropavlovsk

The sign reads "Pripyat" in Russian

  • In this level, there is a sign that says "Pripyat", despite being in Petropavlovsk.
  • Though the enemy weapons have tac-lights, once the player acquires one of these guns, the flashlight disappears. This is due to the fact that the lights are attached to the enemies themselves, not the guns.
  • As the mission is occurring at the same time as the missions in Washington D.C. the date is pretty much impossible as the time difference would make this mission be a day after.
