"The Coup" is the third level in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It is mainly a cinematic level that sees the player take control of President Yasir Al-Fulani, who is driven to an arena and then executed by Khaled Al-Asad.


Plot Edit

The Coup is largely a cinematic level, acting as the opening for the game. This level is used to introduce the player to the primary antagonists, as well as the opening credits. It is shown through the perspective of President Yasir Al-Fulani who is driven through a city captured by Al-Asad and his military force. During the drive, Al-Fulani sees Al-Asad's forces rounding up and executing people (these are likely supporters of Al-Fulani). At the end of the level, Al-Fulani is executed by Khaled Al-Asad with a Desert Eagle after saying the words, "This is how it begins" in Arabic to a camera.


The player's ability to move is limited to only looking around and watching as people flee Al-Asad's forces. Many soldiers are shown throughout the city exiting armored personnel carriers and helicopters, as well as chasing down and executing civilians trying to escape.
