Vikharev (Russian: Вихарев) was a Red Army soldier who appeared in the Call of Duty: Black Ops mission, "Project Nova."


Vikharev was one of the Red Army soldiers that are loyal to Captain Viktor Reznov and was taken on the mission to capture Friedrich Steiner in 1945.

He followed his team to the abandoned ship. Reznov ordered Vikharev along with Nevski, Belov and Petrenko to follow him in. The group successfully reached the Nova 6, but Major General Dragovich who was eager to see the effects of the weapon ordered Reznov's six men to be placed in the gas chambers and have the gas tested on them. Vikharev was placed with Petrenko and Belov in the first chamber and died alongside them when the gas was released.
