"I'm here! Keating is K.I.A.! Hostiles moving in fast! I sure could use some help down here."
— Pelayo on impact

Zack Keating was an AH-1W Super Cobra co-pilot in the United States Marine Corps Aviation, along side his pilot Captain "Deadly" Pelayo.


He dies as heard by Pelayo, whom Sgt. Jackson rescues. He is named after Infinity Ward employee Jake Keating.

It is most likely that Keating died by the impact of the crash, or by the impact of the Stinger missile. Keating is not heard or seen throughout the rest of the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare campaign, you only hear his name when he is announced K.I.A. by Pelayo.


  • Keating appears to be among one of the only characters wearing a coyote tan monocam BDU with a woodland camouflage Kevlar vest. He has no helmet cover on his PASGT
  • In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in "S.S.D.D." and "Of Their Own Accord", an NPC named Cpl. Keating can be seen playing basketball with Cpl. Macey. Cpl. Keating may also appear as a Marine in "The Bog".
  • Somewhat ironically, Keating actually uses the default pilot model of Lt. Volker, whom also died due to a helicopter crash.
  • In USMC levels before "Shock And Awe", there can be a Marine named Pvt. Keating as a generated name.
  • Keating's rank is unknown, but it is most likely that he is an officer, as that is a requirement for being a pilot.
  • In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, in the campaign level "Wolverines!", there is a gas station named Keating which is visible when the convoy arrives.
  • In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, on the multiplayer map Highrise, the player can see a building with the words "KEATING" written on the side.
