~ Unknown OpFor at the start of multiplayer.

The OpFor (short for Opposing Force) is a major antagonistic faction in the Call of Duty franchise's original Modern Warfare series, serving as the secondary antagonistic faction in the 2007 video game Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare and a minor antagonistic faction in the 2009 sequel Modern Warfare 2. They also appeared in the 2020 video game Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War as the opening antagonistic faction. It is a military-political force led by the warlord Khaled Al-Asad that seized power in Saudi Arabia following a violent coup d'état.

History

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

In Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, the OpFor came to power during a violent military coup in Saudi Arabia, securing its mineral wealth and cementing itself as a major power in the Middle East. Their coup culminated in the dramatic execution of former President Yasir Al-Fulani on international television.

Following their rise to power, U.S. Marines invaded the country in an attempt to remove the OpFor from power. Though the search for Al-Asad was unsuccessful, the Americans were able to score multiple victories during their brief campaign. In just a few days, the bulk of Al-Asad's forces had been pushed back to the Capital City where they were making their last stand. However, as US forces closed in on the last enemy stronghold, the Vladimir Makarov detonated a nuclear warhead that obliterated all American forces in the vicinity as well as OpFor soldiers.

It later became evident that the OpFor had been aided by the Ultranationalist rebels in order to draw attention away from the Russian civil war. The Ultranationalists had been supplying the OpFor with equipment, including weapons, vehicles, and, ultimately, nuclear ability. After the nuclear explosion, Al-Asad was tracked down by S.A.S. in Azebaijan, where Captain John Price executed him for his crimes after learning that he was in league with Ultranationalist leader Imran Zakhaev.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

In Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, OpFor continued to wreak havoc across the Middle East despite Al-Asad's death. During the first two chapters of the game, General Shepherd leads the United States Marine Corps against OpFor militants in a winning battle. In Endgame, when Shepherd tries to escape from Price and Soap, the OpFor attacking both the Shadow Company and Task Force 141. It is unknown what became of OpFor afterwards following Shepherd's death.

Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

In Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, OpFor is an unnamed Iranian faction that were hired by Perseus to further his interests in the Middle East, and also act as a proxy force to keep the CIA off of him. The group is led by Arash Kadivar and Qasim Javadi, but both are attacked by the CIA in Turkey, and Javadi is either captured or killed alongside Kadivar.
