Merlin also known as the Driver was a character in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He appears briefly in the level "Takedown" driving the car that was tailing the Brazilian Militia.


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.
