Modern Warfare 2 - Part 3
2016 (cont): Shepherd and TF141 have now determined that Makarov can only be hiding in one of two places: a safehouse in the Caucasus Mountains, on the Georgian-Russian border, or an aircraft disposal yard in Afghanistan. Roach goes with half the team to the safehouse, where almost everyone is killed trying to retrieve a DSM - another MacGuffin gizmo that carries vital intel on Makarov's activities, including the airport attack. Roach and Ghost (a masked soldier who sounds a lot like Gaz) acquire the device and reach the extraction point, despite Roach being badly wounded. Then Shepherd turns up and kills them both, revealing his duplicity. He steals the DSM and leaves.
Meanwhile Soap and Price have already discovered Shepherd's treachery. In Afghanistan, the pair find themselves in the middle of a battle between Makarov's ultranationalists and Shepherd's Shadow Company - which is either a US military unit, or some kind of private army. Knowing that Makarov will be listening over the airwaves, Price grabs a radio and asks his foe to reveal the location of Shepherd's base, stating, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Makarov warns Price that the old idiom cuts both ways, but he tells Price where Shepherd can be found. At the same time, Shepherd uses his status to brand Soap and Price as war criminals.
After an epic battle at Shepherd's base, Price and Soap chase the general and manage to shoot down his helicopter. In a final stand-off, near the wreck of the chopper, Shepherd stabs Soap and starts brawling with Price. As Shepherd is about to kill his nemesis, Soap pulls the knife from his chest and throws it into the general's eye. Price recovers and resuscitates Soap, then the two men are rescued by their old friend, Nikolai.
Shepherd has been defeated, but Price and Soap are now the most wanted men in the world. And Makarov is still very much alive and well.
