Modern Warfare 3 Callsigns

There’s no stopping Modern Warfare 3, and as players compete online, they have to show their superiority. Getting the top scores in a match isn’t enough, what you need is a callsign that asserts your dominance. One problem — nobody knows how to unlock those callsigns. That’s why Game Front is working to compile a list of known callsigns in Modern Warfare 3. We’ll keep this page updated as we find more, and if you know of any callsigns that need to be added to our list, please drop us a comment.

For more in-depth coverage of Modern Warfare 3′s singleplayer campaign, check out the text and video walkthrough. If you just need a list of our extra coverage, check out the cheats page.
