Anton Volkov (Russian: Антон Волков) is one of the two secondary antagonists (alongside Arash Kadivar) of the 2020 video game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, appearing in the mission "Brick in the Wall" and "Break on Through" in a flashback. He is a Russian mafia boss who has ties to numerous Soviet terrorists groups, most notably the Soviet spy network Perseus.
He was voiced by Rafael Petardi in motion capture.

He has ties to the Soviet government as well as terrorists such as Perseus, and other drug lords such as Pablo Escobar. It's also implied that he has connections to cartels in Central America, such as the Menendez Cartel in Nicaragua. His file show that he ahs involved in prostitution rings, drug trafficking, and arms dealing. He has an ex-Stasi agent on his payroll named Franz Kraus, whom acts as a his information courier. According to Lawrence Sims, he was sent by the CIA to eliminate Volkov when he was at a convention. Volkov was a infamous mafia boss, gaining the attention of the CIA and MI6, with the latter agency wanting to capture him. MI6 agent Helen Park notes that Volkov is a fan of torture devices if "Bell" asks her about him, and he shows this in optional dialogue during the interrogation scene.

After investigating Kraus in order to get to Volkov, a CIA agent codenamed Bell gets captured alongside a West German spy named Greta Keller, until the CIA and MI6 breaks in and kills Kraus and another Stasi agent named Lukas Richter in order to rescue Bell.
After chasing Anton Volkov and taking out Russian mobsters, Spetsnaz operatives and Stasi agents guarding him, he finds himself unable to open a door. The player has the option of either arresting him or killing him. If arrested, Helen Park will thank "Bell" for giving MI6 a wanted man, as they can get information out of him. If the player kills him, Park will show disappointment, stating that MI6 could have got information. In the mission "Break on Through" where Adler has "Bell" go through implanted memories, Volkov appears in a flashback with Perseus, hearing his speech about stealing an American nuke and launching it from the safety of Solovetsky.
If the truth ending is chosen, Jason Hudson states that Volkov gave the CIA information about his mafia ring in Germany. If the lie ending is chosen, however, Perseus will state that Volkov will have to be eliminated if the player captured him.
- He is the second antagonist in a Call of Duty game to be a mobster, the first was Raul Menendez.
