Taylor's Team was originally a Winslow Accord Black Cyber Ops Division team but became an enemy faction in simulation upon their corruption by Corvus in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. The team consists of the leader John Taylor, Sebastian Diaz, Sarah Hall, and Peter Maretti.

During a mission to rescue the Egyptian Prime Minister Said, the team aids a WA Special Forces team (including Jacob Hendricks and The Player) in rescuing Said. The Player is severely injured leading him/her into surgery to become cybernetically enhanced as part of Project Prometheus in the hopes of joining Taylor's team. The team helps the player undergo simulated combat training prior to the surgery. Unfortunately, The Player dies during the surgery but he/she continued to experience simulated segments in their mind through their DNI connection. Due to being interfaced with The Player when they died, Corvus, a dormant entity within their DNI systems, was awakened and infected the entire team.


Within the simulation, The Player believes they are still alive and working with Jacob Hendricks. The Player lives through Taylor's memories of hunting down the members of Team Phi--former teammates of his who had defected: Dylan Stone, Javier Ramirez, Alice Conrad, and Joseph Fierro. Within the simulation, Taylor's team takes their places with Taylor as Stone, Diaz as Ramirez, Hall as Conrad, and Maretti as Fierro. The team appear to be infected by Corvus which is driving them to betray their old comrades. Throughout the simulations, Diaz, Hall, and Maretti each succumb to the DNI infection and are killed. Taylor appears to fight off the infection at the very end but is killed by Hendricks (as Hendricks killed Stone in reality).


The Player awakens, still thinking they are alive but actually within Taylor's body. They find that Hendricks, seemingly infected by Corvus, has gone to Coalescence's HQ in Zurich to get answers. The Player-controlled Taylor and Kane follow him and fight off waves of hijacked drones to reach Hendricks. They manage to enter the facility, but Kane is killed after Corvus tricks her into entering a room that fills with Nova 6 gas. The Player-controlled Taylor continues on and reaches Hendricks as the latter confronts, Sebastian Krueger, the only survivor left of the Coalescence disaster which awakened Corvus. Hendricks kills Krueger causing The Player to shoot and kill Hendricks. Thinking that they are the last reservoir of Corvus, The Player-controlled Taylor attempts to commit suicide. Within their DNI system The Player and Taylor realize that their minds are linked and fight to destroy Corvus. They succeed and purge their D.N.I. which causes the Player's existence within the DNI system to finally die and Taylor to regain control of his body.
