How is Graves Alive In MW3

Those who have played season 5 of Modern Warfare 2 wouldn’t be surprised by Graves’s appearance in the latest game.

However, those who haven’t would be shocked by the appearance of one of the best characters. Graves first appeared when Makarov cornered Price’s team, Farah, and her companions.

That is when the squad receives a call from the General who is accompanying Graves. Soap, Ghost, and Price were the most shocked by his appearance as he was supposedly dead. But the question is, how didn’t he die when he was already killed in MW2?

He wasn’t, as Graves wasn’t in the tank players destroyed during the Ghost Team Mission. During a MW2 cinematic, Graves meets Farah and Alex, who also believe he is dead. Then Graves confirms that he wasn’t in the tank and proceeds to tease Alex. Farah steps in to avoid any type of conflict and changes the conversation.

No, Graves is still alive in Modern Warfare 3, and he actually plays an important role in the story.

While Soap, Ghost, and Price are devastated by his appearance, they later team up with him for better or worse. Graves team with Price’s team to take out the main antagonist, Makarov, and surprisingly, he doesn’t pull any strange moves.

As said before, he was with the General, so after the mission’s completion, you will see a cutscene where Graves and Shepered are being asked questions in the Congress. Unsurprisingly, Graves betrays General Shephard, and the story continues.
