    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

    Game » consists of 22 releases. Released Nov 10, 2009

    The sequel to 2007’s wildly successful first-person-shooter Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 continues the story of American and British soldiers fighting Russian ultra-nationalist forces.

    Yet another Ghost/Gaz speculation. This time, with more proof!

    I really want it to be true, but seen as how it has been confirmed that Ghost is Sgt. Riley it seems unlikely (even though gaz is probably not his full/real name). Of course the two could be brothers, but seen as how there already are a few plot holes in MW2 I don't think the truth will ever come out,

    Gaz and Ghost are two different people. Same voice actor, different characters.

    I myself don't really think it's him, but felt compelled to point out the blue eyes.

    If you want him to be Gaz then he is, if you dont want him to be Gaz he isnt.
    Infinity ward just stuck him in there to get people to talk about him, they probably havent decided if it is Gaz or not, nor do thy care.

    It is supposed to tell events before MW2 and also lead into MW2, which would prove the theory that "Gaz is still alive" wrong.

    I suppose, but if the comic chronicles the years after MW1 and leading into MW2, that would mean Gaz is still dead.

    Oh of course, it's just a nice homage to a fallen character, something for gamers to speculate on. It's just there to add a bit of mystique.

    If you think Ghost is gaz, thats deppressing because that would mean Gaz is dead for real now, he got shot in the head AND lit of fire this time.

    Actually now I feel less like this is Gaz. The eyes look a very different shade, Ghost's are much brighter shade of blue even with the sunglasses.

    The reason why he wears a ghost mask is explained in the comic, IIRC.

    It wouldn't really matter. In Gears of War, the Carmine brothers use the model of Kim with a helmet on.

    Then listen to the bombcast because their theories help make some sense of the story but I believe that IW just took the MGS4 route and they don't care so they will bring anyone back from the dead.

    @Karmum: When it comes to logic I would agree because it's hard to survive from a bullet to the face but IW didn't care about that so they added Ghost to give people an idea that he is Gaz. He might be or he may not but I wouldn't be surprised to see another Ghost in MW3 that gives off the Gaz vibe.

    best Ghost/Gaz explanation I can come up with is
     
    Ghost/Gaz is the same person and is also Jason Statham in Crank.

    I think they are just supposed to be like the Carmine characters from Gears of War. Ghost and Benjamin Carmine are just fan service.

    ROFL! OMG /thread.
     
    But seriously, Gaz/Ghost are the same in that they occupy the same role, the second-in-command who seem to always be one step ahead of you but still have your back. Though on the Bombcast Jeff did mention that Simon Riley was apparently both Gaz's and Ghost's name, not sure how confirmed that is, I think he said he got that from the comic.
     
    Also, if you pay close attention the the MW2 opening cinematic, during the torture scene in the favela, where Ghost hooks up the car battery and Soap closes the garage door, he's depicted without his mask, and it clearly looks nothing like Gaz (chubbier, different facial structure/hair, and some weird clear full wrap around glasses). Makes me think they covered him up to draw more speculation to him, and to also distract people from trying to figure out if Price would be on the game, *SPOILER* to give his reveal in the prison more impact.

      Take a look at this video, they looked at the end of COD4 from another angle.
     
    Just showing more evidence for the thinkers, I don't know whether I think they are the same people or not. I'm on the fence.

    why are you guys so stubborn and holding to that 'BUT IT'S REALITY' concept?
    like I said in a previous post
    this doesn't need to make sense, it's a goddamn game. 
     
    I mean, just look at Jason Statham in Crank ... and Crank 2, and I'm highly doubtful that there won't be a third one.

    ok i know a lot of people obsess with this but in cod4 gaz was shot in the back http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcNzDYKS5vU watch this for proof as for the mask he might be hiding his identity.  but this thing with the blue eyes coincidence or not blue eyes are not rare. 
    ghost might not be dead because he was shot in the chest not the heart http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RUJA810XHU&feature=related watch vid
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y-mMf7ou2pA&feature=related watch this and next vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7r_naVBCjo&feature=related

    Ghost's name is Simon Ripley. Gaz's name is Gary. 
     
    I think it would be really cool if Craig Fiarbass voiced a character in Modern Warfare 3 named Pheonix.

    Okay, so i've been doing some research and i've found that there is definetely more evidence supporting the theory that Ghost (MW2)  is Gaz (CoD4). Here is the best of what i found: Firstly:
    “Ghost” calls Captain McTavish by his previous name (Soap), but how did he know that is what he was called? Because Ghost wasn't around (or so we are told) when Soap was called "Soap".  Secondly:
    He wears a mask that has a skeletal face on it...a hint that he was shot in the face which may suggest that he wears that mask to hide the wound. Also, this gets confusing when two parts of evidence oppose each other; yes, he wears a skeletal mask probably because he has a wound where he was shot in the HEAD? Well, there is evidence that suggests that (I don't know if this is just a mistake Infinity Ward made because they didn't think that there were people that were capable of camera angle-changing) he wasn't shot in the head, but in the back ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E18oZ7KgQq8) so, either: GAZ ISNT DEAD, or GHOST IS GAZ? And thirdly: 
    We cannot make any more suggestions in detail until the release of MW3, in November.
     
    This is my first post, hope it's a helpful one :D
