Merlin, Soap, and Roach find Rojas' assistant, in downtown Rio de Janeiro. The Driver waits patiently to see what is going on but suddenly Rojas' assistant pulls out a Desert Eagle and starts firing, killing three militia gunmen and then shooting at the car. The assistant's shot goes through the window and kills Merlin instantly with a shot in the head, while Soap and Roach duck behind cover before leaving to chase down the assistant through the streets Rio de Janeiro.
- Merlin has both the Australian and American flags on his uniform. This has been fixed in the Remastered version.
- One of the other TF141 soldiers assigned to Rojas, Meat, can look exactly like Merlin. However, while Meat's appearance varies, Driver always looks the same.
- This was different before as in the trailer, the Driver is shown with Meat's alternate skin.
- When crouching in the car, player can see bits of Driver's head land on the dashboard.
- Merlin was originally unnamed in Modern Warfare 2. This was however changed in Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered.
