Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 dataminers expose Ghost and fans are divided

Since his debut in the original Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Simon Riley, better known as Ghost, has established himself as one of the franchise’s most iconic characters, with his skull and crossbones balaclava making him an instantly recognizable face whenever he appears. Which is ironic considering he’s never been seen without one.

At least not until now. While Ghost’s face remained obscured during his appearances (he takes it off in the recently released Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, but you don’t see it), there is a face that was modeled and rendered under his balaclava as discovered by dataminers became. One that found its way through social media.

If you prefer mystery, we recommend scrolling no further because we’ve included the image of his face below. Not surprisingly, Call of Duty fans have conflicting opinions about what Ghost really looks like, and some on Reddit are joking about it.

“He looks just like Buzz from the Lightyear movie. I hate everything about it,” says The IJDGuy. Adds Minute-Courage4634, “He looks like someone who would demand everyone to call him by his super cool nickname, which he definitely didn’t give himself.”

A few have gone so far as to call him ugly or milquetoast, but others argue that if he looks like a regular guy, it makes perfect sense. “I actually think this face model is pretty cool. A really normal looking, believable guy,” says EversBass. OutlawSundown agrees, saying, “Yeah, totally humble if you’ve seen him in a restaurant without a mask.”

Some have suggested his face should be based on his voice actor, Samuel Roukin, who took over the role of Ghost for the Modern Warfare 2 reboot, replacing his previous actor Jeff Leach. It would make sense since the other members of Task Force 141 also resemble their respective voice actors, although many others dispute that Ghost’s face bears little resemblance to Roukin’s.

There is also some argument as to whether this can be considered Ghost’s canonical appearance. One would assume it is because it exists in the game, but some fans think that Ghost could theoretically look completely different if Activision ever decides to do an “official” face reveal, since players never saw the face to begin with should see.

“Probably they didn’t bother to make him look like his VA as he was never meant to be seen unmasked. I wouldn’t consider that his ‘canon’ face,” says Postaltariat. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 dataminers expose Ghost and fans are divided
