End the War is the twenty-second and final level in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 4.


The final level. McLaren has been promoted to Sergeant. They discusse their plan and then they head out to Krum's building. Wilson (and McLaren by player's choice) takes out enemy snipers. They move up a hill and reach a tunnel. They go through the tunnel and then reach the basement. They breach in and take out the some men. They then go up stairs and take soldiers. They reach top floor and secure it. Sam spots Krum and goes to restrain him but he is shot in the chest. McLaren comes to his aid. Krum goes to shoot him but Salmon pushes him and fights him off. Salmon begins to lose and Krum gains upper hand. Salmon tries to use his Colt Peacemaker but he knocks it out of his hand. Beck comes to help but she is shot by a sniper. McLaren picks up the gun and shoots Krum, killing him.



(End the War intro same as endrun theme.) USMC logo changes to the Wolf logo.

"It's time gentleman. It's time we took down, Krum. We've been waiting for this moment. It's time to end this once and for all! We will end this war! We will go down in history as the famous soldiers, the heroes that saved the world! As the best soldiers! I'm counting on you guys to help me end this! We will go forward like breath exhaled from earth. With vigor in hearts and one goal in sight. We. Will. Kill him."
— Captain Salmon
