Personal Log: John Taylor. My team and I - Specialists Dylan Stone, Javier Ramirez, Alice Conrad and Joseph Fierro have been selected to head up a new Winslow Accord Black Ops team. Our new CO is Jacob Hendricks. He's easy-going and direct, but has that 'don't-dare-mess-with-me' attitude. I like that. If ever a team needed that sort of a headstrong approach, it would be this one. For the duration of our training, I have been designated Case #24954, Call-Sign: Romeo. It's a "leave-your-name-and-personality-at-the-door" sort of gig. Ramirez, Conrad and Fierro have all been assigned equally stupid names. Since we got to the Zurich facility, training exercises has consisted of advanced tactical communication procedures, specialist weapon training and operational protocol - all within the context of different historical and hypothetical mission scenarios. Though the specifics of our operational parameters have not been fully clarified at this time, we all know why we're here. No one says it, but none of us are in any doubt as to what kind of Ops we'll be running... Wetwork. The training is intensive - and high risk, but if we make it through the month, we'll be selected to begin action with Hendricks as our CO. If all goes well, it'll be back to back tours in some of the worst conflicts across the globe. We're going to make a difference - Maybe bring some stability to these regions. We just have to kill the right people. Note to self - start getting used to the correct terminology. Taylor Out.


The Player awakes aboard a train in the year, 2054 with John Taylor in the seat in from of them. The train explodes after a conversation with Taylor, who explains that the Player is in the hospital awaiting for surgery. In addition, he tells the Player that they were connected with a Direct Neural Interface, and that what they are experiencing is a simulation within Zürich, Switzerland.

Taylor tells the Player that a terrorist cell caused the explosion, and early of that day Zürich Security Forces took action, but failed. The Player is than simulated to a Steel Mill and guided by Sebastian Diaz. The Player learns how to use their tactical mode, how to wall run, and to remote hijack computer systems and drone units. Going into the control room, grunts launch from their pads as the Player experiences a trigger of memories of the grunt injuring the Player in Ethiopia. Diaz aids the Player on that memory triggers happen often, but can be fixed by the doctors to meds. The Player hacks into the console, and that Xavier Hirtzel was responsible.

The Player is simulated to Hirtzel's escape in the High Rise Apartments, and is greeted and guided by Sarah Hall. Hirtzel is hacking into the ZSF Talons, as the Player reveals that Hirtzel has an DNI as well. In addition, the Player unlocks cyber ability; system paralysis onto drones. The Player catches Hirtzel, but the latter dies from fall. Hall tells the Player to purge their DNI into Hirtzel, but warns them that the victim will become brain dead. Once interfaced, the Player learns the cell are at the Old Train Tunnels to plan their attack.

Simulated to the tracks, Peter Maretti guides the Player with two cyber abilities, immolation and firefly swarm, noting that although firearms are the go-to choice in a firefight, using DNI will truly be the better weapon. Maretti also warns the Player is not immortal, and that a bullet to the head will send them to their maker. Making it to the console, the Player learns that the terrorist cell hacked the robot grunts onboard to bypass train security and load the explosives that caused the explosion.

The Player returns back to the train, guided this time by Taylor, and is given minutes to stop the explosion. The Player learns to use takedown by melee and air stomping grunts. The Player makes it to the explosives, but cannot stop it because there is not enough time. The Player, by Taylor's words learns that the train is a maglev, and simply disconnects it from the rest by reversing the polarity on just the car he/she was in. The explosion kicks off, as Taylor informs them that the explosion was going to happen, he simply tested them to see what they are willing to sacrifice.

The Player awakes in the hospital, seeing firstly a bandana and a woman leaving. Taylor and an "unidentified man" speak as Taylor informs the Player that Hendricks has signed up for the project as well despite not being injured on the mission.

  • The Player's death can be seen in first person, by Taylor being taken away by surgeons during the memory trigger scene.
  • When replaying the level after the first time, all tutorial dialogues will be removed, and the player's loadout will not automatically switch along with the level section changes.
  • When breaching the door of Xavier Hirtzel's house, the player will always fire at the same rate, no matter what weapon they are carrying (even with the Locus or the SVG-100).
  • The terrorist's hideout in the steel mill will have several monitors in the computer room showing a nuclear power plant. The design is the same as the one in the level Fission from Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. This can also be seen in the control room on Lotus Towers.
  • The mission's name is a possible reference to Raul Menendez and Cordis Die, who made a video named "a new world" and called the followers to "seek a newer world".
