Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Plot

On August 17, 2016, hours after killing General Shepherd, Captain Price and Nikolai evacuate a dying John "Soap" MacTavish from Site Hotel Bravo, Afghanistan. Soap receives medical attention in a safehouse run by Nikolai's Loyalist allies in Himachal Pradesh, India, but Vladamir Makarov's forces arrive in an attempt to kill the trio. After the doctor is shot down, Yuri, Nikolai's best soldier, who has as much a grudge against Makarov as Price, gives Soap an adrenaline shot to keep his heart going, and helps secure a safe route out of the country.

Meanwhile, the war between Russia and the United States continues by proving the battle of Washington D.C the turning point of the war as U.S forces reclaim many eastern cities. The actions of Delta Force's Team Metal made up of Sgt. Derek "Frost" Westbrook, "Grinch", "Truck", and their C.O. "Sandman" facilitates the Russian army's withdrawal from the invasion of Lower Manhattan, New York City. They begin by destroying a jamming tower on top of the New York Stock Exchange, then hijack a Russian Oscar II submarine in the East River with the assistance of the US Navy SEALs, in order to use its ordnance against its own fleet. Eventually, Russia makes an emergency withdrawal of its forces from the US East Coast, signifying the American victory.

On October 4, 2016, Russian President Boris Vorshevsky announces his plans to negoiate a peace treaty with the U.S. at a summit in Hamburg. However, during the flight, Makarov's men hijack Vorshevsky's plane and force it into a crash landing on the tarmac of an airport. F.S.O. Agent Andrei Harkov attempts to secure Vorshevsky, but is killed when Makarov appears inside what the F.S.O. believe to be a evacuation helicopter Makarov reveals that he and his generals plotted a coup detat to kidnaps the President, and plans to capture and torture his daughter Alena, to force the President to give Makarov access to the Russian nuclear arsenal that has the capability and destructive power to allow his generals to take over the entire continent of Europe despite leaving its cities obliterated.

After Soap recovers from his wounds, he, Price, and the remainder of Task Force 141 follow a lead from Yuri, that leads them to an arms distribution point in Sierra Leone, which they attempt to sneak into. They try and fail to intercept Makarov and his mysterious cargo, but only find evidence of the group transporting it, Fregata Industries; the cargo is distributed to several cities in Europe, including Paris, Berlin, and London. In London, a British S.A.S. unit, including Sgt. Marcus Burns and Sgt. Wallcroft, is sent in by the director of MI5 to intercept one of the cargo crates. The crate Wallcroft's unit was pursuing was nothing more than a decoy, and the real device is detonated near Big Ben, releasing toxic chemicals and killing a young American family within its blast radius. Several other detonations occur simultaneously, striking all major cities in Europe, and paves the way for the Russian Army to invade NATO allied countries in Europe; the United States discovers the attacks were designed to knock out the Intelligence networks and special forces bases in each country. Team Metal is deployed to Hamburg, along with other U.S. forces, to rescue the U.S. Vice President from a hostage situation.

Utilizing intelligence from MacMillan, Price and his team raid a compound belonging to a warlord in Somalia named Waraabe. Upon raiding the compound, the 141 learns of Volk's identity as the bomb-maker and his location in Paris. Price contacts Sandman about their findings, who along with his team and GIGN forces, manage to capture Volk. Team Metal then fights to an extraction point with the help of an AC-130 gunship, but are pinned down before the Eiffel Tower, and are forced to wait for air support to aid them. The resulting air strike causes the tower to eventually collapse into the river after the bombing run eliminates all Russian forces at the extraction point, pushing the Russians out of France.

Team Metal learns from Volk of Makarov's hiding at the Hotel Lustig in Prague, where he is about to call a meeting with his top advisors. Price's team infiltrates the locked-down city, meeting up with Loyalist Kamarov, now an organizer of the Czech Resistance, to try to assassinate Makarov. Yuri and Soap take up sniping postilions from a church tower across from the hotel, but Kamarov himself is taken hostage and rigged with explosives. Price, who sneaks into the building, escapes the hotel just as Kamarov is blown up. Makarov reveals that he knows Yuri personally, by acknowledging him as his former "friend". Makarov then detonates rigged explosives in Yuri and Soap's overwatch spot. Soap and Yuri are not killed by the explosion, but the former is gravely wounded from the height he had fallen, causing his knife wound to reopen. Yuri helps him and escapes with Price to a resistance safehouse. As Yuri tries to help, Soap tells Price that Makarov and Yuri know each other before dying. After leaving his Colt M1911 pistol used to kill Imran Zakhaev, with Soap's body, and recovering Soap's dog tags and journal, an enraged Price punches Yuri down a staircase and holds him at gunpoint, demanding him to explain his connection with Makarov.

Yuri explains that he was a former Ultranationalist who befriended Makarov when they were both escorts of Imran Zakhaev. They evacuated Zakhaev from the arms deal at Price's 1996 assassination mission in Pripyat, and later witnessed Makarov's detonation of the nuclear bomb in the Middle East, killing 30,000 Marines. Yuri was changed by the event, and attempted to stop the massacre at the Zakhaev International Airport in Moscow, but was later shot in the stomach by Makarov for his betrayal. Yuri's guilt barely convinces Price in maintaining their alliance.

After infiltrating Makarov's castle near Prague and learning of President Vorshevsky's captivity, Price alerts Team Metal of an Ultranationalist plan to abduct Alena Vorshevsky from a safehouse in Berlin, where she had been hiding during the conflict. Team Metal is unable to prevent the kidnapping, but trace Makarov's Ultranationalists to a Siberian diamond mine. Together with Task Force 141 (minus Frost), they ensure the safety of President Vorshevsky and Alena, ending the conflict between the United States and Russia and clearing the name of Task Force 141. However, during extraction, Sandman, Grinch, and Truck are forced to stay behind to buy the evacuation chopper some time and are killed when the mine collapses on them.

On January 21, 2017, three months after World War III ends, Price, Yuri, and Nikolai finally manage to track down Makarov to the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. Price and Yuri assault the hotel with E.O.D. armor, making their way to the top floor as Makarov's escape helicopter approaches the hotel. With only minutes left before Makarov escapes, Price and Yuri press through the casino and the atrium to find him; however, a Little Bird decimates the upper site of the hotel in an attempt to eliminate both men. As a result, both men are badly wounded, with Yuri impaled on a metal rod. At first, Price hesitates to pursue Makarov after witnessing Yuri's condition, but the latter insists he will be fine and tells Price to not let him get away., forcing Price to go on alone. Price hijacks Makarov's helicopter by killing the pilots, in the process the controls are damaged causing the helicopter to crash on the roof, where he confronts Makarov. Yuri intervenes before Makarov can kill Price, but is himself killed by Makarov. This gives Price enough time to beat down Makarov and wrap a steel cable around his neck. Price then smashes the glass floor under them, hanging Makarov and ending the Ultranationalist movement, once and for all. Price survives the fall and smokes a cigar in front of Makarov's corpse as the police arrive.

Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Gameplay

The player assumes the role of various characters during the single player campaign, changing perspectives throughout the progression of the story, which, like its predecessors, is divided into four sets of missions called "Acts". Each mission in an act features a series of objectives that are displayed on the heads up display, which marks the direction and distance between such objectives and the player. Damage to the player is shown by the percentage of health HUD shown on the screen. The player's health regenerates over time with shields also helping with regeneration. Mission objectives vary in their requirements, ranging from having the player arrive at a particular checkpoint, to eliminating enemies in a specified location, to standing their ground against enemy squadrons, manning robot mechanoids and other weapons, and planting explosive charges on an enemy installation. Some of these objectives can be failed, and may or may not hinder progression of the story. The player is also accompanied by fellow soldiers who cannot be issued orders.

The game sees the return of former Task Force 141 Cpt. John "Soap" MacTavish (voiced by Kevin McKidd), former S.A.S. Cpt. John Price (Billy Murray) and Russian informant "Nikolai", who are on the run after killing the rogue U.S. Army Lt. General Shepherd, the main antagonist of the previous game. However, for most of the game, the player will control Yuri (Brian Bloom), an ex-Spetsnaz who joins Price on his hunt for Russian Ultranationalist leader Vladimir Makarov (Roman Varshavsky). Makarov returns as the game's primary antagonist, and has a new contact named "Volk", a Russian bombmaker in Paris, France. Several new playable characters have been added, including: Delta Force operative Sgt. Derek "Frost" Westbrook; S.A.S. Sgt. Marcus Burns; and Andrei Harkov, a Russian federal security agent tasked with protecting the Russian President. Just like President Al-Fulani in the first game, Soap is only "playable" during the game's opening sequence; while Price becomes the player character in the game's final mission, Dust to Dust. The player also takes brief control of a civilian tourist in London, seconds before he and his family are killed by a chemical agent; as well as an AC-130 TV Operator during Team Metal's escape from Paris in the mission Iron Lady.

New non-player characters (NPCs) include: Delta Force operatives "Sandman" (William Fichtner), "Truck" (Idris Elba), and "Grinch" (Timothy Olyphant), who serve as Frost's squadmates. Captain MacMillan returns from Call of Duty 4 to provide the 141 with critical intelligence. Craig Fairbrass, who originally voiced the characters Gaz and Ghost, returns to voice SAS operative Sergeant Wallcroft, who originally had a minor role in the first Modern Warfare. Also, after Yuri's detonation flashback, Sgt. Paul Jackson is briefly controllable moments after his helicopter crashed. But only lives long enough (for 30 seconds) to see what happened to the city before "passing out".
