Private Ryan is a minor character in Call of Duty: Ghosts, who appears in "All or Nothing." When Logan and Hesh are heading for the anti-air missile rig, they will slide down a tilted floor and a slow-motion sequence will commence, with Logan engaging four Federation soldiers with one attempting to execute Ryan. If the player kills the one pointing a pistol at Ryan quick enough, Ryan will survive. However, if given enough time, the Federation soldier will shoot Ryan in the head, killing him. If Ryan dies, either Logan or Hesh will avenge him by shooting the Federation soldier. Alternatively, if Ryan survives, he will grab the soldier's pistol and shoot two enemies, but may sometimes get shot in the chest before doing so.
- His name and the situation are a reference to the 1998 film, Saving Private Ryan.
- The attachment on his Honey Badger is randomized (Red Dot Sight or ACOG Scope).
- It is strange that when Ryan is about to be executed while he has a Honey Badger in his hands.
