"Good luck with that shit."
— Crosby to Mason after giving him the radio.

Sergeant Crosby was a USMC character from Call of Duty: Black Ops, who appeared in the mission "The Defector".


During the mission, he gave the player, Mason, a radio to call in a helicopter reinforcement. He then asked if Mason is from the Studies and Observations Group, and Mason confirms he is. After calling in the helicopter, he jumped down and rushed to a doorway, where he died shortly after.[1]


  • When Alex Mason asks Crosby for the radio, he says "Pull it together, and gimme that radio!" However the in-game subtitles say "Hey, gimme that radio!"
  • It is possible for him to live, if he is protected or the NVA are killed quickly, however he stays in his position and will not proceed with the rest of the soldiers.
