Swimming appears in multiple missions during the Call of Duty: Black Ops campaign, most notably during the levels "Victor Charlie" and "Redemption".

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

The first part of the campaign mission "Hunter Killer" involves swimming, at most times by using a Diver Propulsion Vehicle.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

In the level "Fallen Angel", the player needs to swim through a series of flooded tunnels after gathering voice recordings and intel from Menendez, which will also be used to escape after he discovers their presence.

Call of Duty: GhostsEdit

Swimming is seen in the levels "Atlas Falls" and "Into the Deep"; the majority of the two levels is placed underwater, making swimming the only way to traverse the level. The player is limited to the APS Underwater Rifle and knife in the level.

Call of Duty: Advanced WarfareEdit

Swimming is a mechanic available to the player in various levels and multiplayer maps. In the map Defender, the player can swim on one end of the map, especially once the tidal wave has struck the map. Additionally, swimming appears in the campaign level "Crash"

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIIEdit

Swimming returns in Call of Duty: Black Ops III multiplayer and in the Zombies map Zetsubou No Shima, with much more freedom than before. The player can swim on the surface or underwater, and may aim and fire any weapon, even when underwater. Equipment, such as grenades, may be used or thrown underwater, although the velocity will be much reduced. Depth is controlled using the jump and crouch buttons. Players will gradually take damage if they stay underwater too long. In multiplayer, holding down the jump button underwater will allow the player to Thrust Jump directly out of the water. Players can "sprint" underwater to swim faster, though, like sprinting, this will lower their weapon.

Call of Duty: WWIIEdit


In the level "D-Day", the player can swim by crouching while on water.


In the multiplayer maps Operation Neptune and Anthropoid of The Resistance map pack, the player can swim by crouching while on water.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4Edit

Swimming returns once again in Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. It functions the same way it did in Black Ops III.

Call of Duty: MobileEdit

Swimming returns in the Battle Royale mode of Call of Duty: Mobile.
