While Reznov continues to appear during the story, it is later revealed that he is a figment of Mason's imagination and actually died during the breakout. The second line is his last on-screen line, when he is about to kill Dr. Steiner, and the third line is his last line of the game, which Mason hears while swimming to the surface after killing Dragovich.

    • Who: Yuri
    • Note: Price does not want to leave the wounded Yuri behind but Yuri tells Price to leave him and prevent Makarov from getting away. These are Yuri's last words before he shoots Makarov, but is shot three times by Makarov, killing him.

Farewell Messages

  • Staff Sgt. Usef Omar: To my dearest wife Sarah, my son Noah, and my daughter Abby. If you are reading this, I can tell you with the utmost confidence, that I died for something right and just. The cost of war is higher than any one life, and I happily give mine in defense of my men and my family. Abby, I'm sorry I didn't keep my promise when I said I was coming home. My hopes for your future, gave me the strength to protect everything we hold dear. You will always be daddy's little girl. Noah, be an honest man. Keep your word. Only use violence as a last resort. You're the man of the house now. Sarah, please keep our babies safe and find it in your heart to forgive me for leaving you alone. If my last breath is not in the battlefield, then surely it will be in your arms. Keep me in your hearts, always.
  • Lt. Victor "Gator" Diallo: For my dear wife Olivia and my daughter Nissrine. If you are reading this, I guess I didn't make it home. I was prepared to face danger and death. I hope I did so with dignity. My time was cut short, but I had countless blessings. I married the perfect woman. I have a brand new daughter on the way. I'd be selfish to ask for more. I love you, Olivia. Welcome our baby into this world and cherish her for me. Remind her about her daddy, and, please, never be afraid to do what you need to find happiness. Nissrine: hello, sweetheart. I left for this tour before you were born. I'm sorry I won't be able to see you grow up. Daddy wanted to make the world a better place. That's why we made you. Keep me in your prayers and try to do one good deed every day. Be safe, my family. Victor.
  • Lt. Cmmdr. Audrey "Mac" MacCallum: My dearest children... well, as this letter will only be used in the event of my death, it may seem somewhat sorrowful, but I don't want you to see it that way, okay? I have always felt that our stay on Earth, the time we call "life", it's a temporary gift to be spent in service of something greater than ourselves. Death comes to us all. It is not to be feared. I loved my job, but I hated war. But the secret mission I undertook every single day, was to protect the two of you from anyone, or anything, that threatened your health and well-being. So promise me you will take care of one another, and, please, leave your lives to the fullest. With all the love in my heart, Mom.
  • E3N "Ethan": Sir, we're behind enemy lines now, in the heat of battle. Time is short. You've given an order from which there is likely no return. You did what had to be done. All in. I'm proud of you. You're a born leader, sir. Today was one of the worst days in history, and forgive me for saying it - but it was the greatest day of my life. I did everything I was trained for, and more. Together, we fought the good fight. Over Titan, you said we were brothers. I always wanted to know what a family really is. Now, I do. Admiral Raines told me that a soldier is only as good as his last mission. If this is ours, then I can say with certainty, we were damn good, sir. Better to burn out, than it is to rust. Metal-1, out.
