Modern Warfare 2 Ghost Meme

The Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) ghost meme is trending on TikTok.

The meme is a video of an MW2 character named Simon “Ghost” Riley.

He is a Lieutenant, a British special forces operator, and a member of Task Force 141.

He is known for his skull mask (balaclava), headset, and dark red sunglasses.

Simon grew up in Manchester, England, and had an abusive father.

His father often brought home dangerous animals and wore a skull mask to scare him.

After the September 11 attack occurred, Simon joined the Special Air Service.

Simon was attached to an American team tasked with taking down Manuel Roba.

However, the team’s commanding officer betrayed them and they were brought to a brainwashing facility.

Simon was buried alive in a casket but he used the jawbone from Vernon to break through it and escaped back to Texas.

He later returned home and found out that his family was dead and Washington (his former teammate that was brainwashed) was responsible for their deaths.

This article features the Modern Warfare 2 (MW2) ghost meme explained, videos, and a template (cropped) that you can use to make the meme.
