Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2[edit | edit source]

The US Army Rangers are one of six multiplayer factions. They are also one of two playable factions in the game's campaign. They fought in Afghanistan until they were transferred back to the United States to stop a Russian invasion. The Rangers' campaign is lived first through the eyes of Joseph Allen (for the levels "S.S.D.D." and "Team Player") and then James Ramirez for the rest of the US missions. Both are members of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, and are squad-mates with key characters Sgt. Foley and Cpl. Dunn.

The Rangers were under the command of General Shepherd. The Rangers wear Army Combat Uniforms (in Universal Camouflage Pattern) and plate carriers colored in "Ranger Green."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The "victory" and "defeat" themes for the Rangers are different excerpts from the same soundtrack. Both come from the "endrun" portion of the soundtrack for "Whiskey Hotel".
  • When playing as the Rangers online (and as Allen and Ramirez in the singleplayer campaign), the player will typically have a GPS-type device attached to their arm where he can see it.
  • The player can buy a Ranger uniform for their Xbox Live Avatar for 400 Microsoft points
  • When playing sudden death game types such as Search and Destroy, when all of the Rangers have been eliminated the ending result says "U.S. Army Eliminated" instead of "Rangers Eliminated". Likewise, texture files for the Modern Warfare 2 models are prefixed with "us_army" in that game's files (e.g. us_army_up_body_a_col); Modern Warfare 3's files use a more appropriate "rangers" prefix (e.g. rangers_bdu_upperbody_b_col).
  • The Briefing for "Black Tuesday" shows that the 75th Rangers are fighting in central Manhattan alongside the 2nd Marine Division.
