There is a controversial part of the plot which comes as an optional mission that you can choose to skip when you first install the game. In the mission, you play an undercover agent working to infiltrate a terrorist organization led by a Russian named Makarov. In order to earn their trust you have to join them in carrying out a terrorist strike against several innocent civilians. What follows is a graphic assault that you take part in, resulting in the death of many innocent people.
