Reading Now: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare “Season 4” Features Pakistan Army SSG Commando
Pakistan has witnessed an exponential growth and development within the gaming community in Pakistan in the last 5-7 years. Pakistani youth is now more educated when it comes to the technicalities of the gaming industry, thanks to many Pakistani YouTubers and gaming forums. This has resulted in youth’s growing interest in Triple-A gaming titles like Call of Duty, CS:GO, and Shadow of The Tomb Raider. Unsurprisingly, many Pakistanis today compete on national and international platforms.
The international gaming community has taken quite a notice of the Pakistani interest. Pakistanis are being welcomed everyday in international community to hold a representation in one way or another. Game developers have also stepped up to the cause. And in the latest release on 3rd June, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare “Season 4” features Pakistan Army SSG commando.

Commando Kayani – The Character
What better way to represent Pakistan in a world class war-zone game than introducing Pakistan’s pride, one of the most lethal and highly trained SSG Commandos in all of Pakistan, Commando Kayani. Commando Kayani’s life is laden with so many medals that it is quite hard to keep a true track of them. Just know that he is a lethal killing machine, has trained extensively in sky-diving, sniping, hand-to-hand fighting and vandalism techniques within an enemy territory. He is considered to be one of the best individual fighting class soldier Pakistan has to offer, as recognized by the international communities.
The most skilled and most dangerous soldier of the world. Sky diver Red Commando black belt, close combat master, air borne course qualified, jump master,free fall 100+ jumps, kick boxer Unarmed combater.

However quite strangely, the exact 3D animated model of Commander Kayani has been labelled as an Urzikstan SSG, which is not actually the reality. If you go deep into the game details, you will see that the character has been indeed inspired by Pakistani SSG Commandos, but due to some licensing issues, the game is unable to label him as it is.
Call of Duty Craze In Pakistan
If there is one game that you will find in any Pakistani gaming enthusiast’s house, it is some edition of Call of Duty. COD is a very extensive and action packed game including sniping and much more. This game has attracted masses all around the world since its release. However with the release of this new character, Pakistanis would surely grab a copy of the game. There is still a debate going on, whether the Pakistani hero has been portrayed as a terrorist or as a hero.
the pakistan soldiers are gonna used as aterrorists in this game.

The only way to find it out is to actually play the game. Interesting move by the developers.
