Video Game Deaths[]

  • Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (2012) [Navy SEAL Mike Harper]: In the mission Achilles' Veil, Harper participates in a mission to capture Kamar de los Reyes and is held captive by the latter's forces. The player character in the first half of this mission, Omid Abtahi, has a choice to execute Rooker by shooting in the head to maintain his cover, or refuse and fail an assassination attempt on Kamar. Harper's death is required if the player wants to achieve a good ending.
