Ghost from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 can hardly ever be seen without a mask, even if there is surprisingly little straw lying around in the game itself. In spite of this, or perhaps because of it, Simon Riley is one of the absolute fan favorites of the Task Force 141 operator, which is undoubtedly also due to his mysterious skull and crossbones look.
If you’ve ever wondered what Ghost looks like without a maskthere is now the answer: dataminers dug through the code of Modern Warfare 2 and found that the Brit with the no-bullshit attitude actually has a sculpted face.

Bloom and Negus were particularly impressed by Rodkin’s expressive eyes, which ultimately also convinced them of the actor. After all, the campaigns of the new Modern Warfare games are particularly character-focused, which is why it was particularly important with Ghost to be able to transport enough emotions despite the mask.
The decision should have paid off: On social networks such as TikTok, a small cult around Simon Riley has flared up, while according to numerous players, the witty dialogues between Ghost and Soap are among the absolute highlights of the single-player campaign.
