* BlackAndWhiteMorality: The Federation are explicitly genocidal savages who, inexplicably, incorporate a number of resurrected YellowPeril tropes including "exotic Amazonian torture methods" and [[ManchurianAgent Manchurian agents]]. One of the first things we see Federation soldiers doing is executing civilians in the first level. Meanwhile, the Ghosts are, well, standard ''[=CoD=]'' protagonists, even being less morally ambiguous than the SAS/Task Force 141 from ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare''.
** Most telling is what both sides do when they [[spoiler: commandeer their enemy's [[KillSat orbiting Kill Sats]]. The Federation launches kinetic rods at American cities, killing 27 million innocent people in a matter of minutes. They were targeting additional cities for destruction when Mosley and Baker destroyed the ODIN satellite, it's implied they were ready and willing to glass EVERY major city in North America. No military targets are ever mentioned. In contrast, when the Americans take control of LOKI, they only attack Federation military forces directly engaged in combat with them at sea or in the middle of the desert.]]

* AbortedArc: This game was meant to kickstart the spiritual successor series of the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' trilogy in tone and gameplay. However, the game ended up selling way less than ''Videogame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2'' and its reception was mostly mixed due to it not taking or improving anything from its predecessor and implementing some pace-breaking design choices, prompting Infinity Ward to develop the quasi-successor to ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare'' and ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps3'' (gameplay & aesthetics-wise) and sub-series kickstart: ''VideoGame/InfiniteWarfare''. Leaving players with an incomplete story and SuddenDownerEnding with no follow up or ending.

* GreaterScopeVillain: The President of Venezuela aka "The Boss" who is the leader of the Federation. Though Rorke is the Big Bad responsible for the plot, it's revealed in the rorke files that he's taking orders from him.He's also the one who ordered him to capture Logan so he can be turned into a ManchurianAgent.Though he never physically appears in the game.It is likely he will be in the sequel.



* ManbehindtheMan: while Rorke is leading the Federation military forces,Its made clear he's not the leader and even reveals in his flies that he's taking orders from his superior who just so happens to be "The Boss".



* TheDreaded: In the Rorke flies Rorke mentions that his "Boss" has no problem getting rid of his soldiers to capture another ghost.



* TheGhost: The leader of the entire Federation is mentioned a few times in the collectible intel items,but is never seen or referred to by name in the game.Rorke seems to hold him in great respect though,indicating he's a pretty dangerous dude.
