A Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 fan has come across unexpected paranormal activity on the game’s Taraq map and has shared the horrifying footage as a warning to other players. While fans of Infinity Ward’s hit series are accustomed to the scare and scare in Call of Duty’s popular Zombies modes, which have become a series staple, the appearance of this creepy creature in the base game comes as an unexpected and frightening surprise. .
Released in October 2022, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the second game in Infinity Ward’s reimagining of the original Modern Warfare titles. With a traveling campaign mode that sees the return of fan-favorite characters like Lieutenant Simon “Ghost” Riley, and new additions to the series’ tried and tested multiplayer modes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was generally well received by fans and critique. Infinity Ward’s shooter has been updated several times since launch to fix a number of bugs that sometimes broke the game, and according to recent rumors, future updates will bring some fan-favorite game modes back to Modern Warfare 2.
In a new post on the r/ModernWarfareII subreddit, user Neon_Moons shared footage of an unexpectedly creepy encounter he reenacted in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s Taraq level. In the short footage, viewers be warned to include a fair amount of bad language, Neon_Moons is walking towards a ruined building on the Taraq map when he notices what appear to be hands hanging over a door. As they enter the building, the eerie shape moves lower, eventually revealing what appears to be a charred body descending from the floor. Turning around for a closer look, the video only reveals a ruined roof where the figure stood just seconds before.
Some fans who responded to the disturbing clip were a little shaken, and users have speculated about what might have caused the unexpected encounter. Looking for a logical explanation for the eerie figure, one commenter speculated that it could be a recently killed player’s rag doll, which shut down while Neon_Moons was spinning. Some Redditors wondered if the ominous apparition represented an undiscovered Easter egg in Modern Warfare 2, albeit one with a distinctly supernatural theme.
While many gamers are already accustomed to being wary of unseen threats in the form of UAV attacks when playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, it seems that ghost encounters should be added to the list of things to fear in the game’s multiplayer mode. For spook-seeking fans, however, this eerie apparition might just be the thing to do until the much-rumored Modern Warfare 2 Zombies mode arrives.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available today for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.
