The first three main installments took place during UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and garnered acclaim from the entertainment press. Then came ''Call of Duty 4: VideoGame/ModernWarfare''. The setting for the game, indicated by its sub-title, was drastically different from the previous entries and the campaign's plot is about the United States, United Kingdom, Russia, and the Middle East tied to a nuclear weapons plot. It was a massive commercial blockbuster for Activision and won several awards (including Game of the Year). Soon afterward, a spin-off, ''World at War'' (sometimes referred to simply as ''Call of Duty 5''), brought the series back to its roots as a World War II shooter. ''Modern Warfare 2'' (alternatively "Call of Duty 6") reverted to the modern setting introduced in ''[=CoD4=]''. While the game has been well received by major reviewers and console gamers, PC gamers [[InternetBackdraft were upset over the removal of dedicated servers]], which resulted in the loss of {{game mod}}s and being able to pick one's own server (let alone administrate them), and the reduction of the number of players to 18 per server. In addition, it sold around 3.3 million copies within 24 hours.

The series' publisher Activision uses a development cycle for the series to ensure that one game can come out each year while still giving enough time to developers to make the game good. There are three developer companies: Infinity Ward, Treyarch, and Sledgehammer Games.

''Call of Duty'' (or ''[=CoD=]'' when abbreviated) is a series of FirstPersonShooter games created as the SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor: Allied Assault'' after the exodus of some 2015Inc. staff, who would go on to form Infinity Ward. The series is developed mostly by either Infinity Ward or Treyarch and published by Activision, famed for its immersive storytelling techniques and engaging multiplayer mode. So far, the series has appeared on the PC and has also appeared on most major consoles and handhelds. A {{card game|s}} has also been announced.

* OneBulletClips: Enforced - one of the most common tips repeated to you is to reload early and often, and if you fail to heed that advice your reloads take longer.

longer. The original game is essentially the TropeCodifier for the caveat of empty reloads taking longer than mid-mag ones.
* OneManArmy: The original game was advertised with the tagline that "no one fights alone", which is reflected in the number of people in the missions - while you may be [[ArtificialStupidity the only competent person on your side]], with very rare exceptions you'll never be the ''only'' person period.

* PersonalSpaceInvader: Banzai chargers in ''World at War''. (Note: It ''is'' actually possible for the player to embody this trope, whether using the knife or a rifle bayonet.)
** There are also a few scripted moments in ''Black Ops'', and of course, there are always those [[GoddamnBats goddamn dogs]]. One such encounter is a MythologyGag to a similar moment in ''Call of Duty 3,'' where you deprive a mook of the pins to his grenades- [[PineappleSurprise while they're still on his belt.]]

* PressXToNotDie: The ''Moder4n Warfare'' series is ''notorious'' for this, in which you must press the melee button ''at the exact time'' to prevent an attack dog from ripping your throat out.
