The Technologist is a minor character in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
The Technologist was in Nigeria when the KVA, led by Joseph "Hades" Chkheidze, ordered a massive hostage-taking operation, with Samuel Abidoyo and several other technologists as the main targets. When an Atlas squad comprised of Gideon, Jack Mitchell and Joker (supported by Ajani) rescued the Prime Minister, he revealed that the KVA's target was in fact the Technologist. Soon after, Ajani reports to Gideon that his men spotted the getaway vehicle: a van driven by two KVA members, escaping with the Technologist. In pursuit, both Mitchell and Gideon chase the truck onto the highway, and upon reaching the vehicle, kill its two drivers in an attempt to stop the getaway. However, this results in the truck crashing over the side and falling into the river. Luckily, before he can drown, Mitchell saves the man and brings him to the surface.
Later, in a private meeting, the Technologist reported to Irons about the KVA's intention to attack nuclear plants. Irons, however, ignored it and instead shot the man, proving that he deliberately allowed the attacks to occur to improve Atlas' reputation. It is unknown who recorded it. When Mitchell and Ilona successfully take out Hades, he gave Mitchell a data chip containing the recording before dying. Ilona later anayzed the chip and shared her discovery with Gideon and Mitchell in secret. However, Irons and two Atlas soldiers breach the room, holding both Ilona and Mitchell at gunpoint, with Irons claiming that the footage was "forged by terrorists", before walking away with Gideon. With the help of 'X', both escape the city and decide to join the Sentinel Task Force to stop Irons.
