- "We got a supply drop on the roof with an M5 sentry gun."
- — Private Wells
Private Wells was a US Army Ranger seen in the level "Wolverines!". His squad responded to Raptor's crash-landing and secured him in a nearby restaurant. When Ramirez's squad arrived at the crash site, he updated Sgt. Foley on the situation and helped repel the Russian troops long enough until a friendly convoy arrived to evacuate them. He can die at any point of the level after getting off the roof which is when he has said all of his lines. A character with the same name (But random appearance) can be seen in "Of Their Own Accord" and "Whiskey Hotel".
- He can be seen in the first floor through a sniper scope of the Burger Town few seconds before the Russian Bombing: the bombs blown away the place where he was standing but strangely he's found alive with Foley and Morgan against a wall in the Burger Town while the bombing should have killed him.
- Wells' appearance is randomly generated as well as the attachments on his SCAR-H.
- Sometimes his lips will be red (possibly blood).
- There is a possibility that a Pvt. Wells may spawn in Modern Warfare 3's Mind the Gap, whether this is simply the game creating a trooper to assist Burns or if this is the same Wells from Modern Warfare 2 making a reappearance is currently unknown. It is likely this is not the same Wells given that he was a Ranger, and this one is an S.A.S. operative.
