"Shadow Company is a different breed. No more vodka-drunk Ultranationalists. They're trained like we are."
John "Soap" MacTavish

Shadow Company is an enemy faction encountered at the end of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2's campaign, and in one Special Ops mission, "Snatch & Grab".

CampaignEdit

Shadow Company makes its first appearance in "Loose Ends", in the Caucasus Mountains on the Georgian-Russian Border, securing the LZ that Roach and Ghost must get to, who have downloaded a DSM containing vital intel on Makarov. They are briefly shown as allies, until Shepherd, their leader, betrays Roach and Ghost and kills them. A few soldiers help Shepherd get rid of the bodies by pouring gasoline on them and lighting it on fire with Shepherd's cigar.

They next appear in "The Enemy of My Enemy", at an airplane boneyard in Afghanistan, fighting Makarov's Inner Circle. They attempt to kill Soap and Price, but fail. The outcome of this battle is not shown.

They appear last in "Just Like Old Times" and "Endgame", when Soap and Price infiltrate Site Hotel Bravo, their command base, coming for Shepherd's life. They are at first unaware of Soap and Price's presence, but they find out when many of their men go missing and they breach a door.

They fail to stop Soap and Price, and Shepherd attempts to escape on a Zodiac. Price manage to shoot down Shepherd's helicopter, but he and Soap plummet down a waterfall. After a long fight between a weary Captain Price and General Shepherd, Soap intervenes by throwing a knife at Shepherd's eye, killing him. What happens to the Shadow Company after this is unknown.

Shepherd, however, holds no regard for their lives and considers them all expendable, an example of which was an artillery strike he called in directly upon their location, destroyed his own base with soldiers still inside it in a failed attempt to kill Soap and Price during "Just Like Old Times".

TriviaEdit

  • The Shadow Company "chess piece" emblem can be obtained in Multiplayer by completing the "Tango Down" challenge.
  • On the license plates of Shadow Company's up-armored SUVs, it is written "G 2009IW4 V". 2009 is the game's year and IW4 is the engine for the game.
  • In "Just Like Old Times", if a player waits and listens to the group of Shadow Company soldiers in the cave, a conversation can be heard where a Shadow Company member and his team killed three "left over" Russians, for being aggressive after breaching Site Hotel Bravo's perimeter.
  • In "Just Like Old Times", the Shadow Company soldiers using Riot Shields use the same character models as the Navy SEALs using riot shields in multiplayer.
  • Most ACRs used by Shadow Company have Digital Camouflage on them. One can also acquire a unique ACR with Heartbeat Sensor, Red Dot Sight and Silencer with a "black" finish at the steam room in "Just Like Old Times".
  • If one were to view the helmets of Shadow Company there will be a name, but it is always "HOLT".

  • In Just Like Old Times, a patrol Shadow Company soldier is smoking while he's still wearing a mask.
  • Shadow Company is a playable enemy faction in Call of Duty Online, fighting against TF141 in all multiplayer maps. Its logo is a slightly modified version of that of Tropas's, which is most likely a placeholder.
