The Vorkuta Guard is a prison guard and enemy NPC in Call of Duty: Black Ops. He appears in the level "Vorkuta" in the initial stages of the level, where he enters the workhouse to supervise the work of the prisoners. He finds prisoners Viktor Reznov and Alex Mason fighting, so he heads for Mason to beat him up, but soon turns his club towards Reznov when he insults him. While he is beating up Reznov with his club, Mason staggers to get up and hits him in the head with a rock, cracking his skull and instantly killing him. Reznov later takes his club and the keys to the elevator.
