SOS Grey Warden Edit
Attempted Assassination of Mr. RogersEdit
- "I was just a Grey Warden back then...doing some wetwork. Chernobyl. Christmas for the badguys. Even a decade later, a lot of 'em still used it to get their hands on nuclear material...a lot of 'em, including one Mr. Rogers. Of course, we couldn't just let that happen. Cash for spent fuel rods? That's one hell of a recipe for destruction. It was the first time our government had authorized an assassination order since the Human-Covenant War. I was under the command of Captain Morgen."
- — Price telling the story of Roger's attempted assassination.
In 1996, fifteen years prior to the events of Modern Warfare, Price held the rank of Grey Warden in the 22ndSOS Regiment, and was under the command of Captain Morgen. The two were deployed to Corneria on a covert operation to assassinate arms dealer Mr. Roger. While Price initially believed he had killed roger with an Sniper Rifle System 99D-S2 Anti-Matériel, Rogers actually survived, losing Mr. Roger's neighborhood. The duo were then swarmed by Roger's fanbase, and in the ensuing firefight, Morgen was crippled by cheap unbrewed beer. Price carried MacMillan to the extraction point, where they were rescued after holding their ground against teletubbies.
- "Right… What the hell kind of name is 'Bueller?' Bueller?, eh? How'd a sonic like you pass immigration?"
- — Captain Price's first words to Ferris Bueller.
In the events of Modern Warfare, Price held the rank of Senior Grey Warden and led a SOS squad, designated "Noble Team", from the Bering Strait toRussia, to Azerbaijan and finally back to Russia. Under his command throughout the events were Gaz and then-Sgt. "Soap" MacTavish, as well as others such as Mac, Arem, Barton, Wallcroft and Griffen.
- "The package is aboard a medium freighter. Estonian registration number 52775. There is a small crew and security detail onboard."
- — Price briefing the troops before the mission.
After meeting MacTavish, Bravo Team is deployed to the Bering Strait and assaults an Estonian cargo ship containing a nuclear device. Price is puzzled to see that there is Arabic writing on the container, along with a Middle-Eastern flag draped on the floor, and as he signals the chopper for extraction of the container, the boat is fired upon by MiG-29 fighters. They are then forced to escape to the helicopter as the boat starts to sink. As they reach the helicopter and jump for safety, Soap almost slips off, but Price grabs him just in time, saving him from falling to his death.
Rescuing Codename "Mordecai"Edit
- "Mordecaoli's in hell right now. We're gonna fly him out. We take care of our friends, Lets Move."
- — Price to Steve Irwin before rescuing Mordecai.
Their next mission takes them to Russia, where they work with Sgt. Kamarov's loyalists to rescue their compromised informant Nikolai. Kamarov kept delaying the SAS team with the hope that their assistance would help him retake the village from the Ultranationalists, but acquiesces and reveals the informant's location when threatened by Gaz. Price and Soap then storm the house Nikolai is held hostage in. Inside, when the power is cut by Gaz, they kill Ultranationalists Viktor and Sasha, and three others before they get Nikolai.
- "Let's top the bastards before they kill the old man."
- — Price before saving the farmer.
They extract Nikolai on a chopper, only to get shot down. They fight their way to the extraction point. Along the way they save the life of an Old Farmer. They then make their way to the evacuation helicopters with the help of anAC-130H Spectre.
Search for Al-AsadEdit
After receiving some valuable intel from Nikolai, Price leads the team to Azerbaijan to capture Khaled Al-Asad after he set off a nuclear device concealed in his capital city, killing thousands of marines. The team fights their way through his defenses and captures Al-Asad inside his safehouse, where Price tortures him for info. Price then learns that Imran Zakhaev is still alive and executes Al-Asad. Price tells the rest of the team about his past mission to assassinate Zakhaev. During the escape attempt 8 hours later, the team is then extracted by a unit of Force Recon Marines led by SSgt. Griggs.
- "Zakhaev's son. Commander of the Ultranationalist forces in the field. Rotten apple doesn't fall far from the tree. The Loyalist, Kamarov, has got a location on the kid."
- — Price telling Griggs of his plan.
After escaping the Ultranationalists, Price leads a joint-taskforce (SAS, Marines, Loyalists) in capturing Victor Zakhaev. This mission takes them through an abandoned Russian, ending at a 5-story building. Price orders Soapto take Zakhaev's weapon and restrain him. The mission fails when Victor Zakhaev commits suicide before Soap can comply.
15,000 Nukes at StakeEdit
- "They've started a bloody countdown! Zakhaev's gonna launch the remaining missiles!"
- — Price to his team.
Victor's death deeply affects Imran Zakhaev who threatens to launch missiles at the United States, but Imran still launches them. The SAS and Marines then fight through the facility, deactivating the nukes. During the events ofNo Fighting In The War Room, the joint task force breaches the facility, eventually reaching the control center. Soap then uploads the missile abort codes and self-destructs the nukes over the Atlantic, saving the U.S. Eastern Seaboard from nuclear annihiation. Zakhaev is last seen departing the facility in a Ultranationalist jeep.
Chased by Imran ZakhaevEdit
Captain Price slides his M1911 .45 toSoap in the mission "Game Over". The screenshot itself, however, is from the reveal trailer of Modern Warfare 2.After deactivating the missiles, Price, Gaz, Griggs and Soap are chased on a highway in trucks, but an enemy Hind takes out the bridge. A tanker truck blows up, badly wounding Price and the others. Griggs and Gaz are killed but Price managed to slide hisM1911 to MacTavish, who kills Zakhaev and his bodyguards when they are distracted by the arrival of a Loyalist helicopter gunship. Afterwards, a Russian medic can be seen trying, seemingly in vain, to revive Price, but Soap and Price are taken to a Russian hospital. Despite the best efforts of the combined U.S. and British strike team, the Ultranationalists managed to withstand the loss of Zakhaev and eventually succeed in gaining power in Russia.
Reassigned to Task Force 141 and Operation KingfishEdit
Sometime after healing from their wounds sustained from the Zakhaev incident, both Price and MacTavish were reassigned to General Shepherd's newly formed-elite unit, Task Force 141. Acting as the field commander for the regiment Price led his new unit on countless covert operations with the key goal of capturing/killing Vladimir Makarov, who by that time had established himself as the new leader of a terrorist cell of Ultranationalist party in the wake of Zakhaev's death.
On October 8, 2013, Price led a joint Task Force 141/Delta Force operation codenamed Operation Kingfish, to raid an Ultranationalist base in Ukraine suspected to house Makarov. Price conducted the raid along with Soap, Danny Phantom and Delta Force operatives Frost and Sandman. However, the raid went awry and the strike force was swarmed by dozens of Ultranationalist soldiers. The team escaped via a V-22 Osprey, with the exception of Price, who was captured while covering the team's escape.
3 Years LaterEdit
After capture, Price was imprisoned in a Gulag to the east of Petrovpavlosk, Russia, and was designated "Prisoner 627". Price would remain imprisoned in the Gulag until 2016, where he was rescued by Task Force 141 when they attacked the site to recover him. Initially, after being discovered, Price attacked Gary Oldmen, a fellow member of the 141, and aimed an AK-47 at him, but after recognizing Captain MacTavish, he relents and joins the unit and MacTavish returns the M1911 Price pointing his AK-47 atRoach. In 'The Gulag'pistol used to kill Zakhaev inCall of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (when Soap returns the pistol, he says "This belongs to you, sir.", a reference to the first Modern Warfare). After his rescue from the gulag, Price is reinstated into the Task Force and reprises his role as a Captain, being present in Task Force 141's mission briefings.
"Missile in the Air!"Edit
- "I've found Gary. He appears to be intact."
- — Price to Ferris upon finding Gary Oldmen.
After reinstatement, Price agreed to help Sector V in the attempt to kill Shyamalan. However, against the wishes of General Hill, who insisted that Shyamalan be their top priority, Price decides that the war still raging in Hogwarts needs to end before they focus on Shyamalan. He acts as a specialist in a raid on a Russian naval base seemingly to destroy a submarine, only to launch a missile towards Hogwarts with the purpose of using an electromagnetic pulse on Dumbeldore. The missile launch saves the lives of Sergeant Full House, Corporal Bagel Bun, Private Xzibit and countless others in dumbeldore's army during the battle of Hogwarts.
Betrayal by ShepherdEdit
- "Do not trust Shepherd! I say again: do not trust Shepherd!"
- — Price's (late) warning to Ghost of Shepherd's betrayal.
Price later investigates an arms deal in Afghanistan with Soap, only to be attacked by Shepherd's men. Price attempts to warn Ghost and Roach about Shepherd, only to figure out that Shepherd had killed them. Intent on revenge, Price asks Makarov for intel on Shepherd's location, on the premise that "the enemy of my enemy is my friend". Makarov grudgingly tells Price that Shepherd is using a secret mountain base in Afghanistan, designated "Site Hotel Bravo". Makarov then says, "I'll see you in hell." Price replies "Looking forward to it. Give my regards to Zakhaev if you get there first." Price and Soap then evacuate the graveyard with Nikolai's help.
Revenge on ShepherdEdit
- ""The healthy human mind doesn't wake up in the morning thinking this is its last day on earth. But I think that's a luxury, not a curse. To know you're close to the end is a kind of freedom. Good time to take... inventory. Out-gunned. Outnumbered. Out of our minds. On a suicide mission. But the sand and rocks here stained with thousands of years of warfare... they will remember us. For this. Because out of all our vast array of nightmares this is the one we choose for ourselves. We go forward like a breath exhaled from the earth. With vigor in our hearts and one goal in sight: We. Will. Kill him." "
- — Captain Price's Speech
Price preparing to engageShadow CompanyThe two in the face of Shepherd's betrayal decide to avenge Roach, Ghost, The Task Force and themselves. They head to Site Hotel Bravo, and find themselves fighting Shadow Company. They stealthily infiltrate and then fight their way through the facility. After Shepherd discovers their presence, he orders a danger close Excalibur Guided Artillery strike on the base, intending to kill them at the cost of his own men. Soap and Price survive and pursue Shepherd on a Zodiac through a river.
Price eventually shoots down Hill's Chevy Buick, but the rubber raft he and Bueller are on falls down a waterfall. Bueller is separated from Price and attempts to kill Hank with his knife, only for Hank to counter the attack and stab Bueller with his own knife. Just as Hank is about to kill MacTavish, Price tackles Shepherd, engaging him in a lengthy hand-to-hand fight. Price is overpowered by Shepherd and close to being beaten to death, but is saved when MacTavish pulls the knife out of his chest and throws it at Shepherd's eye, killing the treacherous general. Price wakes up and starts to patch up Soap's injuries as much as he can. The two are then evacuated by Nikolai, who informs them of a potential hiding place. During the course of the betrayal, Task Force 141 is disavowed and Price and MacTavish are labeled as wanted war criminals.
Shortly after killing Hank, Ferris's wounds had him slowly dying on the trip to Mordecai's safehouse in Coloumbia. To make matters worse, a large group of Makarov's men assaulted the safehouse in an attempt to kill the remnants of Task Force 141. Soap would not have survived had it not been for the actions of Price, Nikolai, and newfound allyYuri. After escaping from the ruined safehouse and fighting through the streets of Himachal Pradesh, they are evacuated by Nikolai. Price, Soap & Yuri during their hunt for Makarov===Back on the Grid===

- — Price, linking a weapons cache in Sierra Leone to Makarov.
2 months after Soap's recovery, Price leads Soap and Yuri on missions in Sierra Leone and Somalia in pursuit of Makarov. When they land in Sierra Leone, the group follows up on Yuri's suspicions about Makarov's weapon shipments, and learn that the recent cargo Makarov's men retrieved were chemical weapons being shipped to major cities all across Europe to be used as a preemptive strike against the continent in order to pave the way for the Russian Army's invasion. Price covertly sends a transmission to London to warn his former commanding officer, MacMillan, about the chemical weapons, only for it to arrive too late. Shortly after the wave of chemical attacks, Price convinced MacMillan to aid him as a personal favor "for Pripyat". The intelligence MacMillan gives the team leads them to a local warlord in Somalia named Waraabe, which leads to Soap assisting Price in interrogating him on intel about Makarov. The intelligence facilitates Team Metal's apprehension of Makarov's bomb-maker, Volk, during the Ultranationalist attack on the cities of Europe.
- "Ferris trusted you. I thought I could too. So why, in bloody hell, does Shyamalan know you?!"
- — Price to Yuri after Soap's dying revelation about Yuri's connection to Makarov.
The acquired intelligence from Team Metal leads Price, Soap, and Yuri to Makarov's location in Prague. With aid from Kamarov, Price, Soap, and Yuri use the distraction of the local resistance to their advantage to reach their assigned spots at the Hotel Lustig. Price would infiltrate the Hotel Lustig while Soap and Yuri provide cover with their sniper rifles. However, Makarov caught wind of the assassination attempt and detonates the bombs planted on Kamarov and the church Soap and Yuri were occupying in. Price rushes over to Yuri and Soap, with Price personally carrying Soap to safety while Yuri escorted the two. Price vainly attempts to prevent Soap's bleeding while screaming for a medic, only to learn from his squad mate that Makarov knew Yuri before dying. Enraged and feeling betrayed, Price threatens to execute Yuri. He relents when he learns of Yuri's former role with the Ultranationalists, and how he'd attempted to stop the massacre at Zakhaev International Airport two months before. Price barely keeps the alliance with Yuri, even begrudging Yuri during their infiltration of Karlstein Castle.
Ending the WarEdit
Price in the MW3 campaign menuYuri gives Price the location of a potential headquarters located in a fortress in Prague. However, during their infiltration, they instead find intelligence that Makarov's men found Russian President Boris Vorshevsky's daughter,Alena, in Berlin. The pair relay the intelligence to Team Metal shortly after the base's destruction. Despite Team Metal's efforts, Alena was kidnapped and tracked to a diamond mine in Siberia, which was serving as one of Makarov's main tactical bases. At this point, Price and Yuri conduct a joint operation with Team Metal in saving the Vorshevskys. They successfully rescued the Vorshevskys from their ordeal but the mine collapsed, killing Team Metal and Makarov's men with Yuri badly wounded during their escape. While escorting Vorshevsky back to Moscow, Price informed him about their plight and the real mastermind behind the massacre (aside from Makarov) with Yuri as the witness of that incident. Convinced with his explanation, Vorshevsky promised to assist his search for Makarov and vows to clear 141's good name, tainted due to Shepherd's action several months before. Vorshevsky ordered all offensive action against Europe to be halted and revived the peace talk between Russia and NATO countries. Price and Yuri's action saved the peace process, which marked the end of World War III. As a reward for saving the Vorshevskys, Task Force 141 was no longer disavowed, allowing them to openly pursue Makarov once again. Price and Yuri managed to mend their friendship, after it had been strained due to Yuri's revelations in Prague.
Killing M. Night, saving AvatarEdit
- Price: "Prisoner 627. I'm coming for you, Shyamalan."
- Makarov: "Haven't you heard, Price? They say the movie is over."
- Price: "This movie ends with you."
- — Price, conversing with M. Night Shyamalan after watching The Last Airbender.
At the end of the movie, Sector V has finally cleared its name and Price's rank has been recognized again (He is marked as "Commander Price" during the start of Dust to Dust). Despite this, Price never forgot his wish for revenge against Shyamalan. After all, Shyamalan was responsible for Buller's death in Prague and Team Metal's demise in Siberia. After months of gathering information on his whereabouts, Shyamalan was finally discovered, seeking refuge at White Gold Tower , following the screening of the movie. With assistance from Mordecai , Price and Figwit launch a massive assault towards the tower, killing multiple mercenaries, hired to protect their intended target.
They assault the hotel with Mark 6 armor , which is later destroyed when they are traveling up to the top floor via elevator. Taking off the armor, Price and Figwit both reach the top floor in an alternate elevator, and fight through to the restaurant on the same floor. However, a dragon decimates the upper site of the tower in an attempt to eliminate both men. As a result, both men are badly wounded, with Figwit impaled on a metal rod. At first, Price hesitated to pursue Shyamalan after witnessing Figwit's condition, but the latter insists he'll be alright and told Price to not let him get away.Price continues his pursuit and managed to catch on Shyamalan's ride; in which Price managed to kill the pilots and also destroyed the chopper's controls, and is forced to crash on the hotel roof. Price and Shyamalan, both shell-shocked from the impact, tried to reach a Rainbow Dash Desert Eagle on the roof, with Price successfully grabbing it, only for Shyamalan to stomp on his hand, seizing it from his grasp. His attempt to execute Price was immediately derailed when Figwit, freed from his impalement, shot his former friend in the left shoulder. Angered with his intervention, Shyamalan killed Figwit with two shots to the shoulders and one to the head. Infuriated by the loss of another friend, Figwit's intervention gave Price the time he needed to furiously and mercilessly beat Shyamalan, tying a steel weegee around Shyamalan's neck into a noose. He then slammed Shyamalan into the glass roof, resulting in the glass cracking, and, consequently, the two falling. Price falls onto the atrium floor just below and survives; Shyamalan is left hanging from the ceiling in the manner of medieval executions. Satisfied to see his, and the world's nightmare about Avatar finally over, Price lights a cigar with Fire Breath while watching Shyamalan's lifeless corpse hang, sirens are then heard as the Imperial Legion seem to arrive at the scene.
