The KVA are the secondary antagonistic faction in the 2014 video game Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. It is an anti-western, Chechen eco-terrorist organization founded and led by Joseph "Hades" Chkheidze. They seek to force the world back into its natural state and end the humanity's dependence on technology.


The KVA was founded in the year 2041 in Chechnya, Russia by former Chechen separatists that had a strong hatred for the West. Their anti-western teachings and speeches had inspired people all throughout the globe and the organization would soon quickly evolve to become one of the most violent terrorist organizations in history.

Under the leadership of Hades, the KVA would grow to become the world's leading anti-western terrorist organization and operated at secretive and asymetrical systems of attacks. The KVA launched attacks all across Europe, Russia, and other Western and non-western targets with the goal of sending humanity back to its natural state.

Events of Advanced Warfare

During the events of Advanced Warfare the KVA is first seen in the mission Traffic where they have attacked the Technology Sumit in Lagos, Nigeria and have kidnapped multple officials including Technologists and even the Nigerian Prime Minister.

Hades then executes one of the hostages and then leaves when Atlas operatives storm in and rescue the hostages and pursuit Hades and battle multiple KVA militants. On April 28, 2055 the KVA committed a omnicide attempt by launching a deletrious power plant attack across the world, killing thousands of innocent civilians.

Five years later, Dr. Pierre Danois is found in Detroit and is captured by Atlas operatives and is interrogated and he finally reveals the location of Hades in Santorini, Greece where he is meeting with other possible KVA supporters and officials. Hades is then killed but reveals critical information with his dying breath and is revealed that Jonathan Irons is responsible for allowing the attacks to go into action. In the mission "Utopia", it is revealed that Atlas took down another KVA cell possibly ending the organization leading to its dissolution.
