Lieutenant Simon Riley, also known as Ghost, is a character featured in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

First mentioned at the end of the campaign, Ghost is one of the few names up for consideration by John Price for the newly assembled Task Force 141. Ghost was released as a SAS Operator of the Coalition with the release of Season Two starting February 11th, 2020 and was playable immediately after purchasing the Battle Pass.

Ghost has an unknown, presumably negative past with the Operator Mace.[1]
