''Find Makarov'' is a series of WebOriginal {{Fan Film}}s based on the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series and notable for ''very'' high quality acting and special effects. Details Captain Price and "Soap" [=MacTavish=]'s quest to eliminate the [[spoiler:decoy]] BigBad of the second game (and [[spoiler:actual]] of the third), Vladimir Makarov.

So far, two films have been released:

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X0TSDgDJ3sc Find Makarov]]'' is largely a live-action retelling of the ''[=MW2=]'' ending, followed by a teaser of Price and Soap paradropping in Moscow [[spoiler:during the US invasion of Russia]].
* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY5bJxNb8hg Operation Kingfish]]'' is an {{Interquel}} between two first games, made with Activision's blessing, that tells of the eponymous assassination attempt on Makarov gone bad. Shows [[spoiler:how Price was captured by the Russians]].

The films themselves, the second in particular, aren't entirely canon [[note]](fans had previously assumed that Price had been captured after the end of ''[=MW1=]'')[[/note]] but they're still fun. ''Operation Kingfish'' however, is constantly referenced throughout the third ''Modern Warfare'' game, meaning the operation still happened in the game proper.

!!Tropes found in this series include:

* BraveScot: Soap.
* CallForward: Soap putting the knife into Makarov's eye at the end of ''Kingfish''. [[spoiler: It's where he hits Shepherd with a similar knife late in ''Modern Warfare 2''.]]
** [[spoiler: The situations of Price and Sandman during the exfiltration. In ''Modern Warfare 3'', it's Sandman who covers the retreating Price, while here, it's Price doing the covering for Sandman's group.]]
* DeathFromAbove: Spectre.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Sandman and Frost, two of the main characters in the Delta Force campaign of ''3'', appear as supporting characters in ''Operation Kingfish''.
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Both videos are about Task Force 141 attempting to find and kill the titular Ultranationalist leader.
* TheFaceless: Ghost and Roach. Frost as well, since his face is mostly obscured by the Ghillie suit he wears, as well as being obscured by his helmet and goggles.
* ForegoneConclusion: If you've played ''Modern Warfare 2'' and ''3'', you already know how ''Find Makarov'' and especially ''Op. Kingfish'' will end. Doesn't mean they are not worth watching, though.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler: Price elects to stay behind to cover the evacuation of the rest of Task Force 141 and Delta Force. Unfortunately, he's wounded and captured by the Ultranationalists.]]
* {{Interquel}}: ''Operation Kingfish'', which is referenced throughout ''Modern Warfare 3''. [[spoiler: It shows how Price ended up in the gulag.]]
* TheVoiceless: Much like in ''Modern Warfare 3'', Frost does not utter a single word.
* TooDumbToLive: Frankly, the AC-130 in Operation Kingfish deserved to be shot down for flying that low near enemies armed with [=MANPADs=]. Idiots.
* YouShallNotPass: Price in ''Kingfish''.
