Creepy Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Clip Shows ‘Paranormal Activity’ on Taraq

A fan of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 posts a creepy clip that captures the appearance of an eerie apparition in the game’s war-torn Taraq map.

One fan of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 stumbled across some unexpected paranormal activity in the game’s Taraq map, sharing the freaky footage as a warning to other players. While fans of Infinity Ward’s hit franchise are used to spooks and scares in the popular Call of Duty Zombies modes that have become a series staple, this creepy creature’s appearance in the base game makes for an unexpected and frightening surprise.

Released in October 2022, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is the second game in Infinity Ward’s reimagining of the original Modern Warfare titles. With a globe-hopping campaign mode that sees the return of fan-favorite characters like Lt. Simon “Ghost” Riley and new additions to the series’ proven and polished multiplayer modes, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was generally well-received by fans and critics. Infinity Ward’s shooter has seen multiple updates since launch to address a number of sometimes game-breaking bugs present in the title, with recent rumors suggesting that future updates will bring the return of some fan-favorite game modes to Modern Warfare 2.


Video contains foul language.

In a new post on the r/ModernWarfareII subreddit, user Neon_Moons shared a clip of an unexpectedly creepy encounter they caught on camera in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s Taraq level. In the short clip, which viewers should be warned includes a fair amount of foul language, Neon_Moons is walking towards a ruined building on the Taraq map when they spot what appear to be hands hanging down over a doorway. As they step into the building the eerie shape moves further down the doorway, eventually revealing what looks like a charred body drooping down from the floor above. Turning around for a closer look, the video reveals only a ruined roof where the figure had been only seconds before.

Some fans responding to the creepy clip were left slightly shaken, with users positing theories as to what could have caused the unexpected encounter. Seeking a logical explanation for the unsettling figure, one commenter posited that it might have been a ragdoll from a recently killed player that despawned as Neon_Moons was turning around. Some Redditors wondered if the eerie appearance represented a previously undiscovered Easter egg in Modern Warfare 2, albeit one with a decidedly supernatural theme.

While many gamers are already used to being wary of unseen threats in the form of UAV attacks when playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’s, it appears that ghostly encounters may have to be added to the list of things to fear in the game’s multiplayer mode. For fans seeking a fright, though, this unsettling apparition may be just the thing needed to hold them over until the rumored Modern Warfare 2 Zombies mode arrives.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
