A Seeker is a Cryptid featured in the Extinction and Multiplayer modes of Call of Duty: Ghosts. They are unique in that they are the only suicidal Cryptid unit, and they are spawned from meteors in groups of two to four. If a player completes a Field Order on the Devastation map Unearthed, they have a chance to call in three Seekers that charge and explode into the enemy team. The base money rewarded for killing them is $100.


Seekers are easily identifiable, even from a distance, due to the glowing red blob-like structures that cover their bodies. They also possess a red fiery aura of energy around their bodies that is released en-masse when they explode. They move very fast and will explode immediately when killed or after a seconds delay when they approach to within about half a meter of the player, causing heavy damage (approx 25 damage in a direct hit).


The Seeker's behaviour in Extinction is erratic. Although the Seeker's main goal is to run up to the player and self-destruct, the Seeker will not take a consistent path. In some instances, the Seeker will flank, other times it will make a beeline, and sometimes, the Seeker will remain still in seemingly random parts of the area. Seekers are fast, so they can easily catch the player off-guard.

The Seeker has an extremely low amount of health, and because Seekers always spawn from meteors, the threat of Seekers can be repelled fairly easily if the player has a clear line of sight to the meteor. Here, the player can shoot the Seekers as they spawn from the meteor.

The meteor itself will cause a large amount of thunder to generate on the intended area before the meteor lands. The meteor is capable of severely damaging or even downing a player that is unfortunate enough to be hit directly by the meteor.


  • A Hypno Knife will kill the seeker but the player will lose the knife in the process.
  • Ironically enough, even though Cryptids are native to Earth, Seekers arrive via meteors, implying that the Cryptid race is not native to Earth to begin with and they placed orbital assets hidden in space around the planet ready for their planned reconquest of the surface.
