Captain Hughes is a British S.F.S.G. troop who appears in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3: Defiance. He assisted in the breaching of Hoover Dam to prevent Russian forces from compromising its interior.


Breaching Hoover DamEdit

Although Hughes was not mentioned or seen physically during the mission "Dam Approach", it is likely he assisted the breaching of the dam off screen. Soon after the elimination of most of the exterior defences, he and Sgt. Cole are mobilized along with Sgt. Noyce to protect the interior of the dam.

Interior and deathEdit

In the mission "Lights Out", Hughes and his allies mobilize and breach the interior of Hoover Dam. Inside they encounter numerous Russian soldiers. Inside the dam's first generator rooms, an explosive charge is found. He orders Cole and Noyce disarm it and the group proceeds deeper to find the second generator room.

In the second generator room the team eliminate the remaining troops in the interior and proceed to disarm another charge. However, Cole given his demolitions experience, warns his Hughes something does not appear to be right with the charge. Hughes, rushing the operation, ignores this and orders Cole and Noyce to disarm it. As Noyce proceeds to disarm it, Cole objects, but before he can finish his objection the charge explodes destroying the generator room.



  • Hughes is the only NPC character to show a change of weapons. In the area where a Russian helicopter appears to eliminate the player and his team. Hughes will grab an RPG-7 and will use it. Once the helicopter has been destroyed and the team proceed down the elevator, Hughes will discard the RPG-7 and will bring out his M4 Carbine.
