In Black Ops, the player is featured in the Battle of Khe Sanh. The player is not located in the city itself, but aids the United States Marine Corps to defending the Khe Sanh Combat Base in the hills west of the city, against an North Vietnamese Army (NVA) assault. Much of the land is covered in dirt and mud, although in the background one can see jungles, bush and grass.
- A sign found at its entrance reads "Gateway to Hell - Welcome to Khe Sanh. Liberated by 2nd BN 7th CAV. Mike Curran, Date: 7 April 68."
