The Russian Ground Forces appear in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019), where a part of them make up an opposing faction in the campaign known as Barkov's Forces. They are led by Roman Barkov, a rogue general. Barkov's Forces not only consist of soldiers who pledge their loyalty to Barkov rather than to the Russian Federation, but they also consist of mercenaries and other henchmen who work under Barkov's brutal agenda while they illegally occupy Urzikstan.

At the ending, several Russian soldiers are ambushed and killed by the Al-Qatala, led by The Ascendant who were seen invading Verdansk. They also appeared as minor friendlies in the final cutscene where Sergeant Kamarov along with John Price, Nikolai (2019) and Kate Laswell discuss the intel and begin to talk about forming an alliance to fight back Al-Qatala and liberate Verdansk.

In multiplayer, the Russian Ground Forces appear as the Russian FGF and the Allegiance Mil-Sim.
