"PBR's here!"
— Bowman at the end of The Defector.

The PBR is a military boat heavily used in the Vietnam War, featuring an M2 Browning Machine Gun and a M60. It appears in the levels "The Defector" and "Crash Site".

Call of Duty: Black Ops

After the regrouping of NVA forces in Hue City, a T-55 tank arrives and attacks US forces. The helicopters cannot extract the player's team, so they send a PBR to extract them.

A few levels later, in Crash Site, the player gets control of a PBR armed with an M60, as well as Bowman and Woods providing fire support with M202 rocket launchers. There is also a radio playing Sympathy For The Devil by the Rolling Stones.




  • This is the first vessel to be controlled by the player in Call of Duty (Although the player uses a PT Boat in Call of Duty: United Offensive, they do not control the ship's movement, only its cannon).
  • If the player dies while controlling the PBR in "Crash Site", the song in the ship will be reset, regardless of the player's position.
  • It also appears in Call Of Duty Black Ops 4 as a police variant in Blackout mode Hot Pursuit.
