Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Though never specifically stated, in singleplayer, the Spetsnaz appear to be the allies of the SAS and USMC and are a member of the official Russian Armed Forces, allied with the Loyalists. This Spetsnaz army is supposedly led by Sgt. Kamarov. The Loyalists encountered in-game all seem to be Spetsnaz.

In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the Spetsnaz appears in multiplayer as one of the four factions. They always oppose the SAS. They appear in the maps Bloc, Countdown, Downpour, Overgrown, Pipeline, Shipment, Vacant, Killhouse, Chinatown, Creek, and Wet Work. The Spetsnaz models are based on the Ultranationalist models. The Spetsnaz are also further influenced by the Ultranationalists/Soviet Union by their use of the Soviet anthem as their victory theme and the hammer-and-sickle serving as their insignia.

The Spetsnaz appear in Modern Warfare 2 as enemies. They were seen fighting with the Russian Army attacking Virginia and Washington D.C. and fighting Task Force 141 in the missions "Cliffhanger", "The Only Easy Day... Was Yesterday", "Gulag" and "Contingency".

The Spetsnaz appears in multiplayer and campaign, using the campaign Russian Airborne Troops skins. This incarnation of the Spetsnaz is far different from the Spetsnaz in the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare multiplayer. Instead of being dressed as guerrillas, they wear professional and standardized uniforms. Unlike in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Black Ops, they fight against all of their enemy factions, mainly Task Force 141 and Rangers. Strangely, in the level "Second Sun", Sgt. Foley would say something like: "Spetsnaz Troopers inbound, Ramirez, contact 12 o'clock!"

They appear ingame as enemies fighting alongside with VDV Airborne troops. They also appear in Persona Non Grata, sent by Makarov to deal with Price and the Loyalists, and in Spec Ops survival as late-wave enemies and in Negotiator as hostage-takers.

The Spetsnaz also appear in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3's Spec Ops Survival. They are more agile and tactical than in previous games as they will roll and dive from cover and attempt to sneak up on players. They are also a multiplayer faction.

Trivia

General

  • In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer, when playing as Spetsnaz, if the player looks at the player's sleeves they can see the letters SPEC-OPs, meaning Special Operations.
  • Since Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, they have started every single multiplayer match with the usual 'Take no prisoners comrades!'

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

  • Despite the fact that the multiplayer faction is Spetsnaz, the character models used for the faction are those of the Ultranationalists.
  • It is strange that they oppose the SAS and are an enemy faction in multiplayer, as their allegiance would be the current Loyalist government.
    • The Spetsnaz announcer is Kamarov, but he is a Loyalist.
  • Their victory theme appears to be taken from the State Anthem of the Soviet Union.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

  • The announcer is voiced by the same actor as Major Petrov, and Dimitri Petrenko from Call of Duty: Black Ops.
