The Defector was an unnamed person from the Call of Duty: Black Ops level "The Defector". He was killed during the attack on Hue City before the SOG team could get to him.

The Defector was a vital contact to establish Soviet involvement in Vietnam and possibly other projects, such as Nova-6. At the time, SOG operative Alex Mason believed the Defector was Viktor Reznov, though it is later established that the real defector was confirmed to be dead.


  • In both the flashbacks during Revelations and the Wii version of the game, a dead Marine will take the place of the Defector.
