"The Ghost Killer" is the eighteenth and final campaign mission of Call of Duty: Ghosts.
The mission begins with Logan and Hesh taking down two Federation soldiers. After eliminating them, Hesh and Logan look over at a screen on the wall showing a Federation soldier. Rorke then shows himself on the screen and taunts Hesh, prompting the latter to punch the screen, smashing it. Hesh then opens the door to the outside of the train, where he and Logan witness Loki's rods raining down fire upon the Federation. Hesh and Logan then proceed to fight their way towards the engine. Once they finally reach it, the two stand outside the door leading into the engine where Rorke is, where they prepare to breach it. Before doing so however, Hesh contacts Merrick and orders him to send a rod down onto the train if he hears the word "Checkmate". While breaching the door, a Federation mistakenly fires a rocket at the train's engine, causing Hesh and Logan to slide forward, sending them straight into the engine room, where Rorke is standing with three Federation soldiers. During a struggle, Logan pushes Rorke down and uses his .44 Magnum to kill two soldiers while Hesh takes down the third. However, Rorke forces himself back up and headbutts Logan, then he punches him in the face and grabs his Magnum, and holds Logan hostage to Hesh. Rorke orders Hesh to drop his pistol, then shoots him in the arm, wounding him. Rorke then aims his revolver at Hesh's head, then Hesh smirks and says checkmate. Rorke is disrupted, then a rod hits the rail in front of the train, sending the train into the ocean, where Logan is knocked unconscious.
When Logan reawakens, the train is underwater and he sees Rorke's Magnum land between them. They both crawl for it, and Rorke reaches it first. However, before he can finish him off, Hesh hits Rorke from behind with a fire extinguisher, making Rorke still fire, but miss. Hesh then engages Rorke in hand-to-hand combat. Logan picks up the gun and aims it at Rorke, but finds out that it is out of ammo. Fortunately, Hesh manages to toss some bullets to Logan, who manages to catch one and load it into the Magnum as Rorke desperately crawls towards him. Hesh grabs Rorke and holds onto him. Logan then shoots Rorke, but the bullet goes through both him and Hesh. To make matters worse, the bullet hits the window behind them, flooding the engine room. Logan grabs Hesh, and they make it to the surface, where Hesh informs Merrick via radio that Rorke is dead. However, Rorke appears from behind, having survived the shot. He knocks out the two brothers, then drags Logan away as Hesh helplessly screams for him. Rorke seems to plan to use Logan in order to destroy the Ghosts in a similar manner to himself.
