The UH-60 Black Hawk is a utility helicopter seen in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Ghosts. It also makes a brief appearance in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: Mobilized.

In Game Edit

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareEdit

The UH-60s in the game were used by the U.S. Military to transport U.S. Marines to the Middle Eastern city where they were searching for Khaled Al-Asad in the level "Charlie Don't Surf". A Black Hawk (Hammer 2-4) was used by the Special Air Service to infiltrate a cargo ship in the level "Crew Expendable", while a second Black Hawk (Hammer Two-Six) extracts Nikolai with John Price and his team from Russia in the end of the level "Blackout", shortly before being shot down by an enemy Stinger missile in the following level, "Hunted". It is also used in "The Sins of the Father" by SAS and USMC Joint Forces to track down Victor Zakhaev (callsign Vulture One-Six). In "All In", a Black Hawk is seen dropping Marines at the launch facility. A crashed Black Hawk is seen in "Heat" with a still-functional Minigun, used as a defensive turret against the Ultranationalists. A Blackhawk provides minigun support in "Crew Expendable" and "The Sins of the Father", taking out enemy positions that the player cannot destroy.

Known Black Hawks Edit

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (Nintendo DS)Edit

The player controls the minigun on a Black Hawk supporting the ground troops.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

The Pave Low has displaced both the Black Hawk and the Sea Knight as the main transport helicopter, though the UH-60 is still seen in both campaign and Special Ops.

Appearance in CampaignEdit

The Black Hawk, instead of being armed with an M134 minigun, uses an M61 Vulcan cannon with explosive 20mm rounds.

Known Black HawksEdit

Spec OpsEdit

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare: MobilizedEdit

The Black Hawk makes a brief appearance as the exfil helicopter in the mission Closing In. It appears with rocket pods. 

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

The Blackhawk is in "Black Tuesday", used as an evac for Team Metal from the NY Stock Exchange. Sgt. Derek "Frost" Westbrook used a door mounted M134 Minigun to destroy pursuing Mi-24s in a helicopter duel down Wall Street. In Survival Mode, it is used as the transport the Delta Squad and Riot Shield Squad deploy from.

Appearance in CampaignEdit

The Black Hawk again uses M134 Minigun, instead of being armed with a M61. It appears in the missions:

Known Black HawksEdit

  • Helix-Three-Two
  • Helix-Four-Two
  • Deuce
  • Ridley
  • Catfish
  • Dragon Lady
  • Metal-Hawke

Appearance in Spec Ops

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

The Blackhawk reappears in Black Ops II. In the mission "Cordis Die", one LAPD Blackhawk is shot down in Los Angeles. Several others are seen later in the mission. Several unmarked Blackhawks can be seen during the mission Karma; first, while entering the elevator and looking out to the swimming pool; next, when inserted all Cordis Die's mercenary reinforcements. It also appears in Strike Force missions FOB Spectre and Shipwreck. In Shipwreck, several Blackhawks inserted the SEAL teams.

Call of Duty: GhostsEdit

The Blackhawk makes a return in Call of Duty: Ghosts. At the End of Brave New World, UH60's can be seen in the last cutscene. Several UH-60s are used in the level Legends Never Die to transport Rorke, Elias and several other special forces soldiers. It was mostly replaced by Eurocopter EC-635 and NH90. They also appear in All or Nothing, as extraction from sinking U.S.S. Liberator, in "Birds of Prey" and in "Severed Ties", where Logan Walker is using the mounted Minigun. One UH-60 also appears in the multiplayer map Behemoth in the killstreak Heli Gunner.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Black Hawk in early version of Crash.

  • The crashed Black Hawk originally featured in the multiplayer map Crash (possibly as a reference to the 2001 film Black Hawk Down), but it was replaced with a CH-46 Sea Knight to replicate the setting of "Aftermath" more effectively.

TriviaEdit

Call of Duty 4: Modern WarfareEdit

  • In "Blackout", at the UH-60 that extracts the SAS has Russian pilots, but in level "Hunted", after the crash, the pilots are different.
  • The Black Hawks in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare have the Royal Air Force markings. All of the UH-60s in the Modern Warfare games are in the RAF paint job, albeit with the "ROYAL AIR FORCE" marking altered as appropriate.
  • In Charlie Don't Surf, The helicopters leave the aircraft carriers and begin shooting the enemies on the ground. This is a direct reference to the movie Apocalypse Now, when the helicopters are making their way to a Vietcong village, while playing the soundtrack to Ride of The Valkyries by Richard Wagner.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2Edit

  • In Exodus and Wardriving, the Black Hawks that are supposed to be evacuating civilians can be occasionally seen.
  • In the Special Ops mission Big Brother, the gunner's feet are sticking through the floor of Gunslinger-One.
  • It is possible to shoot down a Black Hawk with an AT4 in "Just Like Old Times".
  • In "Exodus", after the C-130 crashes, player can see a UH-60 rise from a backyard only to be shot down.
  • All helicopters are missing a pilot and co-pilot.
  • When a Blackhawk goes down no one is in the helicopter, even when it is full.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3Edit

  • In the map Bakaara, there is a Black Hawk in the middle of the map, destroyed, but with a working minigun. This is a reference to the 2001 film Black Hawk Down.

Call of Duty: Black Ops IIEdit

  • In mission Karma, Blackhawks transporting Mercs can be destroyed with one shot from high caliber sniper rifle or shooting the pilot.
