Task Force Spectre is a playable U.S military faction that appears in Call of Duty: Ghosts' Extinction mode. They only appear in the mission Point of Contact.

Point of Contact[]

Task Force Spectre was sent in as the 2nd squad by the U.S. Military to quell the "alien" outbreak in Caldera Peak, Colorado after CIF Team Four of the Rapid Reaction Force mysteriously disappeared within the first hour of deployment. Task Force Spectre's mission was to destroy any Cryptid hives they encountered, fight their way through the heart of the town, detonate a nuclear device near the crater, as authorized by the President of the United States, and eradicate the town of Cryptids. The town became infested with Cryptids due to the ODIN strikes 2 weeks prior, which revealed the the prehistoric Cryptid species that was laying dormant underneath the Colorado area. After activating the nuclear device, the Task Force rushed to the extraction point, while fighting off an onslaught of Cryptids, where they were exfiltrated via helicopter, just in time to watch the nuke sterilize the town of any Cryptid presence.

The status of Task Force Spectre is currently unknown.

They were later succeeded by CIF Team 1 of the Rapid Reaction Force in NightfallMaydayAwakening, and Exodus as the main playable characters of Extinction.
