The emblem of the Militia
|Leader(s)||Unknown, supplied by Alejandro Rojas and his assistant|
|Appears in||Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2|
|Type||Criminal Gang/Private Militia|
The Brazilian Militia is an enemy faction in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. They reside in Rio De Janeiro where they come into conflict with Task Force 141. They are also a playable multiplayer faction. Their faction symbol is a blood-red right-hand print. Rather than a real, official militia, they are little more than a criminal gang, but they are a very large and well-armed one, sporting a colorful mix of civilian garb and military hardware.
Unlike common gangs, the Militia is very well armed and numbers in the hundreds. It is likely that they comprise the entire gangster population of Rio. Though not the most efficient soldiers, they are sufficiently well-equipped and well-led to prove a very serious threat to Task Force 141, using their numbers and hardware to put up a heavy fight. Speculation is that Alejandro Rojas, their main supplier, struck a deal of some sort with them, since they protected him when he was hunted down by the Task Force 141, or they may have thought that Task Force 141 is there for the simple mission of killing them.
Some mistake them to be allied with Vladimir Makarov and the Russian Ultranationalists, although that is not possible. Their only connection to them is through Rojas, who supplied Makarov the weapons for the terrorist attack in Russia. They use weapons built locally in Brazil, and Russian weaponry such as the AK-47. They also use attack dogs. In battle, they are deceptively formidable tacticians, and will frequently attempt to ambush or flank the player. However, they are a lot more foolish on easier difficulties, blind firing frequently and running straight through fire to their deaths.
The Brazilian Militia can be compared to the African Militia, as seen below.
- Both help Makarov in indirect ways: The Brazilian Militia's leader supplies Makarov with weapons and ammo; Africa's helped to move the chemical weapons to Europe.
- Both factions have two missions on the campaign: The Brazilian Militia is featured in "Takedown" and "The Hornet's Nest", while the Africans are seen during "Back on the Grid" and "Return to Sender".
- Both leaders can be killed: Waarabe by Price during "Return to Sender", Rojas by Roach at the start of "The Hornet's Nest".

- A few translation mistakes in Multiplayer battlechatters:
- When the character is about to throw a flashbang he yells: "Apareceu de repente!" (Appeared all of a sudden!) or "atirando uma granada de mão" (Throwing a hand grenade). However, when he throws a fragmentation grenade he says: Atirando uma granada de luz! (Throwing a flash grenade or flashbang).
- When the character is about to plant a claymore he yells: "golpeando com espada!" (Striking with a sword!). Presumably, the translators confused the claymore mine with the Claymore sword.
- When the character is about to reload he yells: "trocando de arma!" (changing weapon).
- Sometimes, the militia soldiers yell in Portuguese "A polícia deve ter contratado matadores gringos para seu trabalho sujo!" which means "The police must have hired foreign killers to do the dirty work!", believing the Task Force 141 to be mercenaries hired by the Brazilian police to eliminate them.
- This is easily seen in "Takedown", when Meat fires his gun to scare the civilians, causing the militia to arrive thinking that the Brazilian police had hired Task Force 141.
- In the mission Team Player, when the player reaches the school, a random Militia model can spawn and be fighting the player along with the OpFor.
- In the levels containing militia snipers, there are two models for militia snipers. This is odd considering that the first model (first picture in gallery) is the regular sniper model (enemy snipers have this if not using ghillie), or one of the militia models (usually the ones with the bandoliers and without glasses).
- In multiplayer, shown in first person, the militia are wearing combat gloves. However if viewed in third person, they do not. The BradyGames strategy guide contains some pre-release images of the militia with gloveless first person hands.
- When playing campaign, if one listens closely, they can be heard shouting things in English (most likely aimed directly at the Task Force 141 members) such as "Where are you going!?' , "I'm gonna kill you!", "Get back here!", etc. This makes them one of the few enemies to be bilingual.
- The Riot Shield and sniper models for the Militia both sport some form of Blue Camouflage.
- The emblem of the faction can be unlocked in multiplayer by earning the "Streaker" challenge.
