For the campaign level in Call of Duty 2, see The Battle of Pointe du Hoc.

Pointe du Hoc is a cliff located in Normandy which was invaded by the Allies during World War II. It appears in Call of Duty 2.

This area is playable in the American campaign during story mode in the game Call of Duty 2. The player plays as Corporal Bill Taylor of the 2nd Ranger Battalion which appears in two missions, "The Battle of Pointe du Hoc" and "Defending the Pointe". The game is quite accurate with historical events, although there are some discrepancies for playable purposes, such as the 40 minute delay when landing, or the fact that all the soldiers move in the same direction while searching for the guns, as if they already knew where they were rather than branching off.

At the beginning of the first mission, Taylor is immobilized. For about thirty seconds, the player sees the tragic casualties of the battle as a soldier drags Taylor to the cover of the cliff. After this, the player takes control of Taylor. The rest of the mission consists of Taylor and his unit climbing and capturing the cliff, capturing a nearby village, destroying several 155-mm guns, clearing enemy bunkers, and defending the captured territory until reinforcements arrive.
