Call of Duty’s Simon ‘Ghost’ Riley is as real as ever thanks to Inzzen_custom’s incredible cosplay of the Modern Warfare Operator.

Call of Duty has played host to some iconic figures throughout the years. From villains we love to hate (shoutout to General Shepherd) to flagship protagonists such as Soap MacTavish and the Mason brothers, Activision sure knows how to script a character.

But perhaps none can top Ghost — an absolute juggernaut of the Modern Warfare series whose appearance in the franchise has spanned over a decade long.

A member of Task Force 141 and the Shadow Company, Ghost’s mysterious background and concealed identity gave fans a fresh take on the series’ chief character.

Ghost’s most recent return to the franchise came during Modern Warfare’s second season, as the character returned as a playable Operator in-game.

With Activision drafting the popular character back into the mix, popular cosplayer Inzzen_custom was inspired to pay homage with an incredible cosplay.

Inzzen’s efforts pay close attention to detail, as their Ghost rendition is kitted out with all the right attire. From the authentic army scrubs to the trademark skull-patterned mask, Inzzen’s take on British special forces officer looks just like Modern Warfare’s Operator.

The Ghost outfit comes complete with all the gear, too, as Inzzen equips both an SMG or AR to their real-life Operator, to add an extra layer of authenticity.

Inzzen’s talents don’t stop there, however, as the cosplayer also recreated Krueger’s popular execution from Infinity Ward’s title. 

Inzzen’s host of cosplays will literally leave you wondering whether you’re immersed in the game.

Don’t just take our word for it, check out the rest of Inzzen’s incredible Instagram — which is filled to the brim with cosplays from various FPS titles.

The Elite Gamer series will wrap up on October 27 with the $25,000 Pro-Am Championship tournament, which will feature “celebrities, professional athletes, musicians, and top CDL players,” according to the team.

$15,000 will go to the first-place duo, $5,000 to second place, and the remaining $5,000 will be donated to The Call of Duty Endowment – a non-profit organization that seeks to help veterans find high-quality careers by supporting groups that prepare them for the job market and by raising awareness of the value veterans bring to the workplace.

Several players have already been confirmed, including Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren and Aydan ‘Aydan’ Conrad – popular streamers who have already won several high-profile Warzone competitions. The full list of participants will likely get revealed at some point ahead of the main event.
